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.

  1. I bought it for $1.99. Is there an update or bigger version, since you mention $4.99?

    Beautifully absorbing game… had no idea what the “goal” was other than to open boxes, find tools, read notes… finished it. WANT MORE.

  2. I have rebooted my iPad, deleted the game app and it is still frozen in chapter 2 at the chest site where there is a map. Please help me fix this.

  3. When I said I deleted app, of course I loaded it again.
