    The Room on Switch is the definitive experience when it comes to controls and visuals and the only real flaw is the fact that holding the Switch for a touch only game is not as comfortable as holding your iPhone or iPad with weight and the battery life is obviously not great on the Switch.

    The Room offers up a unique take on puzzle solving, with its intricate, ornate boxes and intriguing mystery. The touch controls and the game's beautiful, tiny details make the experience enjoyable on the Nintendo Switch, even if it's not too different from its mobile version.

    Touch and investigate the enigmatic box solving ingenious puzzles that will trap you with the help of their environment and difficulty. I never thought that the mixture of theological and scientific fields would work so well.
  4. The Room has a nice and deep puzzle mechanics. And puzzle mechanics are easy to learn and fun.

    Ideal for a very wide audience, demanding at the right point, embellished with a stimulating plot, as long as you do not expect a new milestone of the genre, The Room will entertain you, thanks to a design of the puzzles really successful.

    For all this, this version seems like an excellent contact with the original work but always keeping in mind the shadow of what could have been and how powerful it would have been to enjoy a more complete version, something that Switch has accustomed us to with revised versions of recent classics.

    Sure, the game isn't quite the innovative title it was in 2012, but the puzzles are still challenging enough to leave the player feeling like they've accomplished something once they finish the epilogue. It's a worthwhile addition to the Switch's library, and fans of other escape-the-room titles will get a real kick out of it for the few hours it lasts.
