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.
Help! The Room has entrapped me!
I can't stop playing this game. I've become enchanted by it mystery. It grabs hold of you and takes you down a blurry rabbit hole of occult and alchemical bewilderment. Similar to the atmosphere of games like Myst, The Room creates this air of haunting and mystical enigma. Constantly stringing you from one clue to the next, expect players to think critically and for themselves. The narrative is vague but creates something of a hook to keep the motivation to continue down the spiraling mechanisms of its strictly touch based and requires you to interact with the objects; lending to immersion and creating a tangibility to the room and objects of the game. I should give would be players a tip before you begin. This game uses multi touch gestures every now and again for some of the contraptions. Don't forget to experiment with all the tools and movements possible. Some things are not as they appear at first glance so always take a second look. Take your time too. There's no reward for rushing through this masterfully crafted game. I cannot recommend this game if you're not interested in solving puzzles that require more than a few taps and simple mechanics. This is a thinking mans game. Don't miss out on this series. It's one of the best games I've ever gotten on my iPad.
Enjoyable problem solving
I was one of the generation that grew up on Riven and Myst so I was definitely intrigued by these games
I enjoyed playing The Room due to its many multitask puzzles. There were quite a few times that I just stared at the screen in an attempt to figure out my next move. I enjoy the type of game that makes you think, rather than just shooting and killing everything in sight.
My only complaint is the hint icon that would help you along if you got stuck but usually I was a couple steps ahead of it already. Not saying it did not come in handy sometimes, but it was a bit of a pain because it seemed it was every move you made it was giving you a hand to help.
I was a little disappointed that it ended as quickly as it did, because I was able to solve it in a little over eight hours, noncontinuous because I was at work. Still, it was a very nice game.
I am going to check the reviews on the remaining games before I decide to purchase. I hope they get harder as they go or it really will not be worth my time in buying them. Good luck if you decide to purchase this game. It is definitely madefor somebody who think outside the box
