Reviews

“If you enjoy a good puzzle, Rooms is a fantastic take on a familiar concept.”
7.5/10 – Lawrence Sonntag, Inside Gaming Daily

“Rooms: The Main Building requires a lot of cleverness and mental flexibility, and the satisfaction you gain from unraveling its puzzles is substantial.”
7/10 – Chris Watters, GameSpot

“From my experience, a good puzzle game makes the player feel clever. It challenges and satisfies in equal quantities, and rarely feels frustrating. Rooms: The Main Building does all of this, and is genuinely addictive as a result.”
6/10 – Jamin Smith, VideoGamer

About the Game

Rooms is set in a dark and mysterious house called ‘Rooms Mansion’, the game plunges you into a virtual world based around 100 challenging sliding puzzles with a twist. In each room or level, you must think carefully and strategically navigate your character to the room’s exit by sliding sections of the room, the same way as a slide puzzle. Your character can walk from tile to tile, but remember that only the tile that your character is standing in can be moved.

In this parallel world you need to use an amazing array of unusual items and devices, including telephones that teleport you from one side of the room to the other and explosives, to break through brick walls or other obstacles. And watch out – some rooms are filled with water and will need to be pumped out!

After escaping each puzzle you will be rewarded with four golden puzzle pieces that are required to secure your way home.

The solution is only a doorstep away. Getting there is the easy part. Finding a way home will be the adventure.

OMIGOSH ROOMS IS FINALLY ON STEAM

Well, folks, a long time ago I bought Rooms on Big Fish Games because coincidentally it was the featured game of the day the very first time I saw the site. This was back when the shovelware developers were on the casual PC market bandwagon before they all moved to making iPhone clone games. Somehow, bizarrely, in the sea of match-3 and hidden object games there was what I now consider to be an All Time Indie Classic, Rooms: The Main Building.

Rooms was also released on Nintendo DS where it was largely ignored because of no marketing (that I know of), and despite me stumbling upon the game at B.F.G., it was definitely not getting the attention it deserved on PC. Furthermore, after B.F.G. was hacked all those years ago, it really put me off wanting to install their client again since Rooms was basically the only reason to do so. But now I don't have to worry about it because Rooms is on Steam!

I don't know if Rooms would be in my all-time top ten, but it is certainly my number one favorite puzzle game ever. As much as I love Portal and the Popcap games, I like Rooms even better. Take it from someone who owns almost a thousand Steam games: this is one of the best.

What I liked:
- It works, I didn't come upon any bugs so far
- The graphics are pretty

What I didn't like:
- Having items explained to me by Mr. Book
- The levels are far too simple

Recommended for beginning puzzle solvers only.
