Brilliant and engrossing. The Room is stacked full of brain teasing puzzles from wall to wall and will have you constantly searching every corner to find out how to solve the next task. The look of the game is very pleasing and is complimented fantastically by a very atmospheric sound track all of which is tied together nicely with an intriguing storyline. The only thing that is stopping me from giving this a full 5 is that I found it to be a little short but in no way should this put you off buying this gem of a game. Full Review

Truly unique I've been after a game to satisfy my taste for the mysterious whilst offering genuinely difficult puzzles that test your ability to think outside the box. The Room has an eerie atmosphere carried along by a captivating yet subtle soundtrack. I truly admire this games creator's for their ingenuity and originality. Modestly fulfils my need for the creepy side of entertainment whilst really getting those neurons firing. Round of applause for this one. 10\5 without effort Full Review

I'm kind of blown away. I've been playing lots of escape room games, but this one has no contest. Capturing storyline and great graphics. Love the 3D navigation which opens up so many more options, as well as putting you deeper into the game. But most impressive was the intricacy of all the machinery. I can't even imagine the work put into that. Fantastic! I never thought I'd actually purchase a game. Ever. But this was so incredibly worth it. I just finished it and I want to play it again! Can't wait to play Room 2. Full Review

Mind bending-ly brilliant! I've waited for a game like this for a long time!! It's amazing, one of the best gaming apps I've ever played. You savour every puzzle you tackle, resist the use of the hint button no matter how hard it gets and relish at the accomplishment of solving it. Even better is the fact that there's a story to it, and I'm definitely getting the Room 2 soon. 10/10 Buy this game, you won't regret it. Full Review

Brilliant. Thoroughly enjoyed this game. Graphics, tasks & puzzles are superb. Only thing was I seemed to have unearthed a bug during one of the chapters. Checked the walkthrough and it wasn't working as it should so I emailed for help and got a reply within hours! Though I started the chapter again as advised it didn't work but an uninstall & reinstall solved it. Finished the game and the epilogue. Great game and great support. On to The Room Two methinks ... Full Review

Fantastic game Loved the graphics and the overall of this game. Just wish it was more then 4 chapters. I have bought and played the room and the room 2 and on my way to get room 3. The biggest negative to this game is it is just way to short... Beautiful game though. I'm amazed at how the game is thought through and transforms like it does into boxes and puzzles and keys and its absolutely an amazing game just really should be thought into being alot longer..especially since it isn't a free game Full Review
Amanda Ruckey Published date: September 15, 2016
Amazingly Addictive! I do not review many games, but this one has definitely earned it. It is absolutely beautiful and challenging. It reminds me of puzzles you would find in the game Myst but way more intricate. It has an eerie atmosphere that keeps you engaged and curious. It did seem a little short considering I finished it within a day, however, not having to deal with ads and It being offered at such a low price, made it a worthy buy. Full Review
Mr Murray Published date: October 16, 2016
Curiouser and more curiouser Working through the first levels I feel pleased to have started. It is a charming and creative game. It is best suited for larger screens, darkened rooms, patient players, good processors and those who base gaming success on more than fastest times and points. It's challenging but not frustrating. I do find frequent references and symbols to a particilar mythology disconcerting though. Full Review
Thomas Lindsey Published date: January 8, 2017
Top Of Its Genre This game defies description. It is so well thought out, well-conceived, and well-developed. This sounds, and music, and whispering throughout the game really add good bit of mystique throughout. The puzzles themselves are very interesting, and challenging. It helps to have some hints here and there, and it definitely helps in a way that you don't have to find a walk-through. Easily one of the best games I've ever bought. Full Review
Bre Tranchese Published date: January 1, 2016
Phenomenal game This game is amazing! Awesome graphics, great creepy sounds..... makes you think and a great challenge! With the sound effects....sometimes you cant help but look around...as if someone else is there! Very engaging. .....i finished it to The room 2 in 1 day, but only because I had the day off and couldn't put it down! 10 thumbs up! Waiting for 3 on the 11th and hoping 4 is in the works! Great job!

I HAVE NO WORDS I was looking for a game to play after RÃ©publique stopped downloading for me. I remembered in that game they talked about this game. I've heard about this game but never tried it. This is one of the best puzzle games I've played can't wait to play two. I purchased it while still playing one awesome game. If fireproof was to make a game action game with these type of graphics and puzzle solving the creators of rÃ©publique will have a serious competitor on its hands. Bottle line loved it. Full Review
Ranjit Kumar Published date: September 12, 2016
Brilliant concept & stunning graphics! The game will transport you into this virtual world of puzzles that its so easy to forget that you are actually playing this on a mobile. The clues may not be the toughest to solve but keeps you hooked until you complete the game. The only short coming that I think of is that the game is too short and didn't last beyond one weekend!Fortunately sequels to the game are already available. Full Review
Wanda McAndrews Published date: January 5, 2017
I can't believe the graphics! It is so addictive! Who thinks up these things? And I am only on the first book... I don't want to stop until I am done with a chapter. Update: I finished this one and started on the next one The Room 2 but not as intrigued as this first one! But I will keep playing because these developers have amazing minds! This game is tops in my opinion! Full Review
Amy Muriel Published date: February 22, 2018
Amazing game - by far the best escape game I've played! I wish it was longer as I've completed it within a few hours total. Looking at value for money though it is well worth every penny for what you get out of it! Highly enjoyable, addictive and challenging whilst still making sense. Graphics are the best I've ever seen on a mobile game app. Please make more levels ðððð I'm gutted as I can't download the second game just yet. Back to the old free escape games for me and they just don't match up now! You've well and truly set the bar ðð loved it! Full Review
Mackenzie Kincaid Published date: January 10, 2016
Engaging and absolutely gorgeous This is the most beautiful, fascinating game I've ever played. I finished the whole thing in a couple hours, but every moment was amazing and I was only sad that it was over so soon. Also, I would pay SO MUCH money for actual models of these boxes and devices for my home. Minus the creepy otherwordly voices and things obviously. Full Review
Rachel Bicket Published date: August 18, 2017
Just Finished this. Positive a 4.8 It was fun exciting when I got things right then seen cool graphics. Loved that part and the story was good too. Although the Negative part was It was hard in some parts such as the first keys on the piano there were no clues for people who cannot read music notes. I had to cheat for the first keys b4 the app clues. I read that many people asked for the same answer. Otherwise Excellent. Full Review
Audrey Chong-Schmidt Published date: December 2, 2017
Great puzzles that requires more than random tapping on the screen when stuck, though random tapping does help in locating somethings that you otherwise might miss. I rarely pay for games. This game is worth it. First played in 2015, played it again Dec 2017.. enjoyed it just as much the second time around. Clues are all there, just need to take time to figure it out. Controls are intuitive, so more than just clicking, try rotating, sliding or pushing buttons etc. Full Review
Alex Sutcliffe Published date: March 17, 2017
Bought this game and I'm not sure why, curiosity mainly. Had a 5* rating so took the plunge. Fantastic game, I played the whole thing through and was so enjoyable. Yes there are free games out there but this one is so well thought out, looks beautiful and is fantastic immersive. My only wish there was more to it. I finished the whole thing in about 3 to 4 hrs. But 79p on 4 hrs entertainment is pretty good. I have since found parts 2 and three. But all more expensive than the previous...... Full Review
Justin Kapr Published date: January 1, 2017
Beautiful, elegant and mysteriously intriguing. An absolute MUST for puzzle adventurers. Spoiler alert. Do not read further. My Galaxy S6+ does not properly use the gyro feature thus making it impossible for me to solve the Chapter 2 orb puzzle. I am changing my 5 star rating to a 1 star rating until resolved. Thank you. Full Review

An excellent game in every way. A three part series that was nailed on the first try. People say it's short but it takes a good amount of time to complete. Challenge yourself to not use hints as they can feel like cheating. I put it of for years after seeing it but glad I played in 2018. I will play the other two. Detailed to perfection and visually stunning. Full Review
Dizee Dee Published date: January 8, 2017
The best puzzler I've ever played If you like interactive brain teaser puzzles then you must try this one. Very well crafted, great graphics and good story line. It's quite hard to put down once you get started. This will keep you on your toes, anticipating the next chapter. Makes you think outside the box. I'm gonna play The Room Two & Three then come back to this one if the next one hasn't been released yet. Good job developers! ð Full Review
John Iwantschak Published date: June 13, 2016
CAN'T GET ENOUGH! This game has got me hooked! Really teaches you to look outside of the box.... To get in the box! ð 11/10! It's that good!! ***EDIT.... I wrote this after completing chapter 3, then I completed chapter 4... END OF GAME! Then you move on to Epilogue. God knows how long that will take! Anyways, took me about 3 hours to complete the game without epilogue. *** Full Review
James Carson Published date: February 27, 2017
Somewhat like the old 'click the item/find the clue' puzzle games, but way more awesome with sexy 3d graphics and complex (but fun) puzzles. The steampunk-esque mechanical contraptions in the game are so intricate that you are drawn to solve the puzzles just to see what happens next. Combine this with the dark, foreboding storyline and you have one hell of a game!! My only problem is, I have to buy 'the room 2' now to see what happens!! :D Full Review
Leigh Rostron Published date: February 6, 2016
Fantastic Love the atmosphere of this game. The sense of mystery pulling you deeper, the feeling of wonder as you discover the next stage in the puzzle. Touch controls mostly feel intuitive, and the solutions to the puzzles never felt like they were obscure or forced you into pixel hunting. The few occasions I got stuck I found the hint system helped me out without just telling me the solution. Very well put together game. Full Review
Grant Wilson Published date: May 3, 2016
Best app game for puzzles I really enjoyed playing this game on the S7, better than just clicking on items find those boring. Took me a long time to find this app game. Anything that need to think things through are the best. Worth the small investment much better than in app purchases. I completed it in 90 mins off and on using the hint on the game now and then. This is my first review, looking forward to playing the rest of The Room Games hopefully more will be made in the near future. Full Review
Mightie Mousie Published date: August 20, 2016
Warning: ADDICTIVE!!! I thought, "It's free. Why not?" Silly me. I devoured this free one, then promptly bought the next one... then the next. I have NO regrets. They truly put a tremendous amount of work into these games. I would have given all three five stars but there is an aggregating object manipulation/viewing angles issue, but aside from that these three games are excellent. Great fun, extremely addictive. Full Review
Damien Walczak Published date: November 24, 2017
Amazing concept and storyline with a fitting atmosphere. There are similar concepts but NOT similar games. The developers have spent time and effort into creating a truly unique experience. I was disappointed by the size of the content, completed the game in less than two days, but was left wanting more. I purchased "The Room 2" and will hopefully continue to be enthralled. Full Review
tertyree Published date: November 11, 2016
Can't resist buying all 3 Wonderfully addicting and so pleasant to look at with beautiful graphics. Each game increases in difficulty as the story deepens. Offers hints, but only after the game has given you time to figure out the next step on your own. Each game costs a little more than the last, but only because of the increasing depth and brain power required to make these games as challenging as they are. Well worth it! Full Review
MrItsoneOclock Published date: February 18, 2017
Just brilliant, 5/5 The puzzles are very in-depth, it's amazing how even the tiniest details are connected to each other. Every piece you solve just seems to flow so fluidly from one to the other. The graphics are incredible as well, quite realistic. And the controls are intuitive, very well thought-out. Just a tad bit too short for me, even with the epilogue--I want more!! That's how much I loved it. Good thing there are two more sequels! Hurray! Full Review
Allison Rossi Published date: February 19, 2017
The sheer detail that went into this game is insane. I rarely buy games, but this has been well worth it. I've only been completely stumped once, and it turns out where I was tapping wasn't quite "right" - no big deal. Either way I could easily spend 30min-1hr a night playing this before bed. Very fun! Full Review
Adam Taylor Published date: May 27, 2016
Probably one of the most amazing games on mobile. I've never seen a more detailed game on mobile, and even console games and pc games of the same genre would be hard pressed to meet the depth of this game's detail, and it's entrancing story line. I truly enjoyed this game, and do not regret spending money on it at all. I don't think I've ever been this satisfied with a mobile app purchase. Try this for less than an hour, and if you aren't sucked in, get your money back. Yet, if you like this genre, I assure you - you won't be disappointed. Full Review
Gabrielle Striker Published date: April 11, 2016
Amazing I had no idea that a game like this, that you can play on your phone, could be this great. I know I'm late to the game here (no pun intended), but this was so good I had to rate it. I rarely rate apps, games or otherwise. This was just the right amount of challenging but not frustrating, was engaging, intriguing, looked great, music set the perfect tone. The app ran perfectly and I had no issues with performance at all. 10/10. I can't wait to go download 2 & 3!! Full Review
B. Denney Published date: August 31, 2016
Wow--The best game in its league! I love most point and click puzzle games like this, but this one is stunning and far more brilliant than I anticipated. A lot of time and painstaking detail went into this and it shows. The only note I had an issue with was that I could not mute the music and just hear the sounds of the game, which were equally as amazing as the graphics. Not a big deal and totally worth it. Don't hesitate to buy this game!! Now--I'm off to the sequel :-D Full Review
Jason Onken Published date: December 21, 2016
Best brain Puzzle Game on Play!! Seriously, worth the price! I have rated CSI, Agent Alice, Tetris, Bejewled, and other hidden search. BUT hands down BEST puzzler game. 3D graphics, have to turn keys, open drawers by pulling out, shift left or right device to along images, open puzzle boxes, use a Cryptex to move objects or open. And has a interesting story line. Worth every penny. Full Review
Mitchell Hove Published date: February 2, 2016
I don't know what to say This app is different from other puzzle solvers. It offers unique and intuitive puzzles that are different and challenging. The game is never to hard and just needs some thinking to get through. I also think that this game looks superb for a phone game. As a game developer I know the amount of effort that can go into a project like this, and I commend you on a well done work. There aren't enough good games out there as there should be, this is a prime example of what aspiring developers should strive for. Full Review
Christopher B Published date: August 21, 2016
I love the graphics and riddles thus far just having bug with GT3 My Galaxy Tab 3 - 7 inch & it resets everytime I am in a certain spot in game. I left email for developers see what happens. Hope bug gets fixed bcus looks very entertaining otherwise. Would give more stars but kinda dissapointed getting to second phase and cannot continue. Full Review
Taylor Ales Published date: December 20, 2015
Easy but fun Probably the best puzzle game I've played. the over all concept/storyline is great and graphics are flawless. My only complaint is I finished the game (and the epilogue) in less then an hour of total game play. Even though it's short there are lots of puzzles and they're enjoyable. I would say its worth the download. Full Review
Published date: January 11, 2017
Neat graphics but wont save game Id love to give this 4 or 5 stars but although I bought game at first install, when I go to quit it says I can't save a game in "Free play" mode? I own it. WTF? Too tired and battery is low. If this cant be resolved I'll have to use the refund button and I really dont want to... The game and graphics are excellent and Id like a fighting chance to solve it. Help please. ðThankyou 5 stars Full Review
Published date: November 16, 2017
I took a chance and bought this to see if I could wrap it head around puzzle games. While my brain could do with a bit of work, this game certainly was very enjoyable! Sat down and played through to the end in one sitting, then got the sequel! Fun little game, certainly different pace for me, great graphics and the controls lend themselves greatly for use on a mobile platform! Full Review
Ian Sara Published date: April 5, 2016
Wow I very rarely write reviews but felt compelled to with this game. This is the most intriguing, creative and fun game I have played from an Android device. Like people have said previously, the puzzles are not frustratingly difficult, but can still present a challenge. There is a "clue" feature to help if you're stumped. Graphics are great and the storyline around which the puzzles are created for draws you in. Can't wait to try out the sequel's. Full Review
