  • Summary: Your adventure begins when an invitation abruptly arrives at your doorstep and diverts you to an entrance of a world filled with mystic beauty. Getting there is the easy part, coming home will be the adventure. In this new world, you’ll need to reach the exit of each of the 100+ rooms by sliding pieces of the rooms along a 2-D plane, forcing you to use all of your ingenuity to escape. Your character can move from room to room as long as there’s a path that isn’t blocked by a wall or obstacle. As you continue the adventure, you’ll encounter several tools that will introduce new elements. Use teleporters, wardrobes, hydrants, and other objects to navigate your way through. Blending the simple gameplay elements of classic brain-teasers with a mystical adventure and an art style all its own, Rooms: The Main Building delivers a mystery filled adventure that will leave you stunned.

  1. These puzzles may not be pretty, but they've got the brains to make up for it.
  2. Stick with it and you'll find a unique puzzle game that's quirky enough to redeem most of the bad bits. [Issue#204, p.96]
  3. There's a lot of content and novel concepts in this game, but you'll need to look past the cheesier elements and muddy presentation to love what's underneath.
  4. A lovably scrappy puzzle game that's brimming with ideas but hampered by clumsy execution. [June 2010, p.56]
  5. Rooms has some value if you're into puzzle games, but it's mediocre at best. If you're seeking a fix to your intellectual craving, there are plenty of other games better suited to the task.
  6. 50
    The few interesting mechanics that are mixed into Rooms' slide puzzles just aren't enough to make it entertaining from start to finish, and the coolest modes are locked from the start.
  7. Maybe this would've worked as a downloadable, budget-priced distraction, but as it stands, there's very little reason to bother with this one.
