An Engrossing, Atmospheric Puzzle Game
The Room is both a wonderful puzzle game and a delightfully eerie experience. First of all, the puzzles are excellent. True to its name, the game takes place inside of a single room, where the player is tasked with unlocking the secrets of a mysterious cabinet. The puzzles involve examining, deciphering and unlocking a series of increasingly intricate mechanical devices. Solving them not only provides a satisfying challenge, but it works in tandem perfectly with the second major element of The Room.
That second element is design. Everything about The Room is designed. Whether it’s the puzzles, the inventory items, the notes or the atmosphere, absolutely everything was done on purpose. Every part of each device is a possible piece of the puzzle. Every item in your inventory can be examined, and many have secrets to solve themselves. The quiet ambience and pitch black background both add to the overall eeriness and focus the player’s attention solely on the device in front of them, right where it should be.
It may not be long, but it does everything right, and for 99 cents you won’t find a more intriguing game.
Pretty cool unusual puzzle game
The puzzles in this game are like cool mystery boxes. It's too bad I didn't think the story behind the boxes were all that interesting. It seemed like the only point to solving the puzzles was to get some flashy cutscenes of mystery markings and creepy sounds. That said, the puzzles themselves are very interesting. Sometimes they seem so hard to understand that the hint system is essential to completing them. Either way, it's a better challenge to try and use the hints less often. A game like this makes you wish boxes like this really existed, but could you imagine the price of building such intricate boxes only to solve them once and never use them again? That's what makes this game's 99 cent in app purchase so valuable. It's very affordable and should take 4 to 6 hours to complete the game. I recommend trying it out. It was a very unusual game that scratched an itch I couldn't get scratched anywhere else.
Must pay for both iPad and iPhone?!
I purchased this game on iPad years ago and wanted to revisit it and the sequel since The Room III is now out and was going buy that. I downloaded this pocket version on my phone thinking I was good until I was prompted after the first chapter to buy or restore my purchase. I naturally asked to restore my purchase and it said I couldn't. I did some digging and found in the developers website that this is a common issue. It is actually 2 different programs and you must purchase both versions if you wish to play on both a phone/pod and a pad. Even though it is the exact same gameplay! I didn't see any other comments about this so I figured I would leave one explaining. I only put 1 star so that it would get noticed more. Obviously though since I have purchased both 1 and 2 on iPad I think it is overall a 5 star game. Great graphics, puzzles, and overall interface and gameplay are top notch. However I'm rethinking purchasing the 3rd installment since I now can't play the first on my phone.
