Ratings and Reviews
Years after its debut, The Room remains one of the most absorbing puzzlers we’ve played. Use ingenuity and intuitive controls to manipulate a series of nested boxes and unlock the secret inside. As each thrown switch and decrypted code reveals another intricate enigma, breathtaking sights and eerie sounds weave an irresistible atmosphere of suspense. All the more amazing for being the debut effort from Fireproof Games, The Room beautifully blurs the line between entertainment and artistry.
I first downloaded The Room a couple of years ago, but for some reason, I found the controls tricky to navigate. However, when I revisited the game a few weeks ago, I had no such difficulty. I think the simple answer is that my iPad skills improved! This time round, I found the game easy to navigate and challenging to complete, and subsequently downloaded The Room 2 and 3.
All three of The Room games are unique; although they are clearly related to each other, each is also original, and different from any other game in the App Store. The thought, creativity, and skill that the Fireproof Games team has put into each episode of The Room is extraordinary and incredibly impressive! The artwork is outstanding, and makes the game beautiful to look at, let alone to play.
Each of the three Room games can be played as a stand-alone game, but simply for enjoyment and entertainment, I recommend playing the three of them from start to finish.
The clues offered are helpful without being too obvious, and I was certainly glad to have them! I'm sure the Room games have excellent re-play value, so a challenge in the future will be to play them without resorting to the clues.
Thank you, everyone at Fireproof Games!
The most honest review 8 years on
When this game works like it should, it is by far one of the best puzzlers out there. However there are still bugs which the developers even though have said they’re fixing clearly haven’t in the 8 years that this has been available. As you can see by the version history, the last update was for ios9 4 years ago! Yet the main bugs still haven’t been fixed. Chapter 3 photo puzzle doesn’t work just crashes the app. Btw the answer is “sigil”. It’s the word you’re meant to get from the photo with the eyepiece if it actually worked. The other bug is that on finishing chapter 4 and clicking continue to epilogue, again just crashes the game and the only way to try and get to the epilogue is to redo the whole of chapter 4 again only for it to just crash again. If you’re going to leave this game on the App Store, fix it. Otherwise remove it

This has now been fixed. All the best!
