The Room Review for iPad

Here are links to the full walkthrough of The Room App by Nerdr:

The Room App Review, iPad

This game is simply amazing.  5/5 and a clear BUY.  Yes, it is expansive at a high price of $4.99, but I don’t regret purchasing The Room.

The Room App is created by Fireproof Games and Fireproof Studios Ltd.

Graphics – Simply stunning graphics.  When the sundial table opens up you’ll be blown away.  Crisp HD on the new iPad 3, with smooth animations and movement.  5/5 points.

Sound – The Room contains atmospheric music that adapts to the chapters as the game flows.  Beautiful sound effects from the various cogs and dials of the puzzles.  Flawless would be an understatement, from the whirring motors to the clack clack of the instruments.  5/5 stars for The Room sound effects.

Replayability – I authored a 5000 word complete guide for all chapters in the game here: The Room App Game Guide and then replayed the entire game THE SAME NIGHT just for fun.  It’s that good.  The next day I deleted the game to make space on my iPad 3.  4/5.

Fun – The puzzles in The Room are always possible and never too difficult.  You’re never stuck for more than about 5 minutes.  The balance is just perfect.  Seriously, the puzzles in The Room are about as carefully balanced as I’ve ever seen.  You’re never permanently stuck on one part, the hints and clues are FREE.  This is not a freemium “give them impossible puzzles so they pay $0.99 for 5 hints” app.  This is polished, this is amazing.

Length of The Room – The Room game on iPad comes to about 3 hours of fun for a playthrough.  For $4.99 this is short.  Don’t let the price per hour stop you, the game is simply stunning and in another class.  The polish, the time taken to make everything just perfect is staggering.  You’ve never seen anything like The Room.  This is why The Room has 300 5 star reviews on the App store right now and not a single 1 star.  NOT A SINGLE 1 STAR.

Story of The Room App – The story surrounds a mysterious note and a box.  No spoilers here!  The story is fantastic and progresses the journey at just the right pacing.

Conclusion – The Room app is genre defining.  It’s just so completely polished and atmospheric words can do it no justice.  Yes, it is expensive at $4.99, but the price is worth the squeeze for the finest puzzle gaming experience you will have this year.  Is it worth 5 $0.99 junk apps to play The Room for 3 hours?  I say yes.

The Room – Nerdr awards The Room 1st prize: Puzzle Game of the Year.

Welcome to the complete The Room guide and walkthrough for iPad, iPhone and Android.

When you first start The Room app you will see the tutorial page.  Tap the screen to begin.  Swipe your finger on screen to move to the envelope on top of the mysterious box.  Double tap the envelope and slide the letter out of the envelope.

You came.

I knew your curiosity would get the better of you.  Please excuse the mess.  My housekeeper abandoned me shortly after the rest of the world.

The answers you seek are inside this box; along with something else.  Something they said could never be built.  It is the only one in existence, and it is the key to incomprehensible power.  This safe was constructed to keep it from lesser minds.  I have every faith in ou solving its mysteries.  You always were the smart one.

With the enclosed key I gift you one parting favor.  Keep this eyepiece with you always.  Without it, you are as blind as the rest.

The stakes are higher than you could possible imagine.


Tap the key to collect it and start your The Room puzzle journey!  It is a small brass key with an animal motif.  Nerdr.com.

Rotate the lid of the tub to align the keyhole as it says and drag the key into the keyhole.  Rotate the key and open the lid.

Inside the tub you will find the curious eyepiece and a letter.  Feed me and I shall survive, Give me drink and I shall die.  Answer and solution is on the next line.

Answer to “Feed me and I shall survive, Give me drink and I shall die.” is Fire!  zoom out of the top of the table and swipe to the box legs.  Notice that they have a symbol on them.  Find the fire symbol, then pinch and zoom in to it.  Fire is the answer because wood feeds it, and water puts it out.

Push the fire symbol in to reveal a peculiar old key.  Take a closer look at this key and you will see you can turn it.

Move to the box sides and you will see a tiny sliding component on some of the sides.  Move the small sliding compartment to reveal a keyhole.  This is what the key fits into.

On the “fire” leg side enter the key to reveal the ornately engraved metal plate.  The end can be used as a wrench.

Move to the side of the box with the plate on it.  It says “The world renowned TALISMAN Est. 1807, guaranteed thief and fire proof from Bespoke safes for the gentry.  It is from Guildford in England.   Notice the small star screw on the right side.

Attach the wrench to the screw and rotate anti clockwise to loosen and show the lens!  Fit the lens to the eyepiece and it will reveal the hidden markings on everything…scary stuff guys!
