Thoroughly Enjoyable, as Always
I’ve liked every game in this series - the puzzles are challenging, without being ridiculous. I like the variety of puzzles and the accompanying hint system, which is perfect at pointing you in the right direction if you’ve missed something obvious (“There’s a paper on the floor?! I totally missed that!”); forgotten something relevant (“That’s right - that symbol is totally in the area I haven’t been back to for a week in real time.”); or just aren’t great at this particular flavor of puzzle (“Oh... I guess that is the same shape on bottom? Really? Well, okay.”) It’s amazing for nudging in you the right direction without assuming you’re an idiot. Only once did I have to check online for something I just could not find and that was more a result of trying to play in sunlight and not being able to see that part of the screen well enough.
I completely enjoy the very kinesthetic nature of moving the puzzles around in space and the magical and entertaining way they unfold. I like the meta-plot of the null and the Lovecraftian lurking horror feel. They’re not written to be deep and detailed, but the terror of what you can’t quite see works very well in this setting and attempts to over-explain would hinder rather than help.
Entertaining, though sadless, not endless. If you like Japanese puzzle boxes and Lovecraft, this will probably be your jam.
100%, A+, 10/10, Two thumbs up...
This was a thoroughly enjoyable installment in The Room series! It was a challenge, but not so difficult that I felt annoyed or wanted to give up. The intertwining of so many rooms was hard to keep up with, but that was what made it so interesting! Each time I got into a rut, I would have an “a-ha!” moment, realizing I just needed to go to another room and try again there. The moments requiring the eyepiece were much more varied than usual, which added to the entertainment, rather than a detracting obstacle. As always, stunning graphics, and I absolutely LOVED the mechanic of breaking the sigils/glass to enter the rooms, it was both beautiful and satisfying, a really excellent use of fantastic visuals. I also really admired the way everything scaled between smaller models and larger rooms, without losing any of the beautiful visual qualities, and feeling very realistic in scale. I downloaded this as soon as I saw it and finished it in around 2 days, I couldn’t put it down! I can’t wait for more, I kind of wish I had paced myself! I never buy any games because of the abundance of free ones out on the market, but The Room was the first-ever (and only) exception to that rule when it first came out, and I never hesitate to purchase the next installment, I am never disappointed. Stellar job!!
Great, BUT before you buy...
Old Sins is yet another great game from Fireproof and took me about 4 hrs to finish. The big thing is I feel it is a bit smaller of a game and also it being 5 dollars makes it a dollar more than The Room 3, it's predecessor. I also felt this game had less exploration and was more of a straight line gameplay. I also feel that Fireproof really missed out on more endings with all the unused space in the doll house they could have added harder ,but optional, puzzles to get a different ending. Would I say buy it, yes BUT, here is what you need to know. Play The Room 1-3 first. I felt this was a bit of a black sheep in The Room universe that leaves big questions from The Room 3. These are, what was the games true ending, what happened to the craftsman, was Grey Holm really destroyed, and what are those Martian structures. I would love to see a Room game that continues that storyline, but that is just me. I'm give 5 stars because it was fun, however I would like a return to more classic games and maybe a smaller but free lite version without a story for people new to the games to get them in. Overall I think I will buy The Room 5 when it comes out, unless it is more than 5 dollars.
Thanks Fireproof, but I know you can do better.
