An Amazing Artistic Puzzle 5/5
I bought this game 5 years ago while in college. I had to delete it because my schoolwork was eating up all my space. I found it again today and started replaying it and it is just as much fun as the first time'
Puzzles are great, trying to break free but must keep going!
Gereat game, I can’t stop playing.
I wish more games were like this 5/5
I downloaded this game back in 2013, i will play it, uninstall and reinstall it like a year later to play again because it is that good. I wish more games were structured this way, its a great puzzle game with no ads or in game purchases, and great graphics and game play. It’s simple and clean and a dream overall game. Well done devs. I do feel like its important for me to share a small bug, in the third chapter there is a section where you have to put a picture in front of a small camera and then put your lense on so you can decipher the message. The problem i have is every time i try to put on my eye glass and look through the small camera my game crashes, even though its a bit annoying its ok because when ever i get back into the game the message is there so i dont get stuck at that part.
It was fun while it lasted. 4/5
It was challenging. It didn’t last very long though. I wanted more.
Fabulous puzzle game 5/5
Great mind-challenging game. Makes you really think deeply about your next step. Nice graphics too. And full of surprises! Quite enjoyed it.
Really challenging for a change 5/5
It’s hard to find actual challenging games.. most are too easy, but this one is so far really gets that noggin workin!
THIS GAME IS IMPOSSIBLE!!!!! 1/5
THE SECOND CHAPTER!!!! THERES NO WAY TO BEAT IT!!! I WAS LOOKING FOR A GAME LIKE THE ROOM 2!!!! THAT ONE IS ACTUALLY POSSIBLE TO BEAT,
What a lovely and engaging experience 5/5

After finally finishing all the Myst games I went searching for more immersive puzzle worlds. I found the Room series and have enjoyed every minute of it. This game introduces you to the multiple layers of puzzle boxes. They are delightfully rendered and just difficult enough to be a good challenge. I thoroughly enjoyed the 1st Room.
Game crash 4/5
Great game but, when I use the lens to look at the photo the game crashes and the screen go black. I have to close the game and reopen to get it back.
Great Game minus the weird whispers 5/5
The music is okay. But the whispers got annoying. I could do without that.
The Room 1, 2, and 3. 5/5
Enter a world seldom seen, or even thought of by most. Follow the trail left behind by the first seeker. Using deduction, imagination, and quite often, clues, which you will need, you will be led into another world where you will forget the, perhaps, false one you live in. Leave your cares and worries behind. To make this journey, it will take utter concentration. If you are brave, fortuitous, and persevering, you will be rewarded. I have also found that after a spell, making the journey again can be a fresh challenge. So jump in and enjoy. GOOD LUCK!
Too short for the money 3/5
Good puzzles, but I expected more levels for the price. I would suggest the developers put all the rooms together as a package and discount the price for it.
Great game recommend highly. 4/5
Some of the 3D controls are not very responsive. Great game though.
Can’t stop playing this game!
Love but I think it’s broken :( 4/5
I believe it’s on chapter 3... When I try to use the goggle to look at an image, the screen just goes black, and I’m pretty sure I need to see this to proceed.
also, I’ve completed the game years ago when it came out, I had purchased at least a couple of the games as they were being released and yet I’m being charged again, I’m not sure who to go to with this issue...
Played them all. 3/5
You should have stopped after 3. The original got me hooked, #2 was a touch disappointed, but I accredit that to the sophomore slump. #3...... WOW!!!!!!!! The best game ever. So I tried Original sins with the highest expectation, and it is SOOOOO BAD I mean, so bad, that I’ll never play another The Room game again. You ruined something beautiful with that mess. You’re lucky you get 3 stars. It’s ONLY because #3was so terrific!
So beautiful 5/5
i started with Room Two. Every detail is executed with such a precise and loving eye to the materiality of surfaces and textures and things. I almost hate to solve a level because, without the pressure of time to beat, you can linger over the beauty of the objects and the artful cleverness of the intricate puzzles. I loved this experience.
Great for a rainy day!
Mind blown. 5/5
Fun twists, exciting victories, bring on the next round. Nice job!
By Mr. Protocol
For my taste, an ideal pace and level of difficulty. LATER: Under iPadOS 13.4, when you look through the eyepiece to examine the photograph, things work unless you’re wearing the eyepiece. If you are, the screen goes black and the game freezes until you press the iPad button to leave the game. If you then re-enter the game, the screen is still black, but tapping the screen finally backs you off and lets you continue.
I am not much of a puzzle player but started with a The Birdcage and was led here by all the popular reviews. I am hooked! Having HINTS is a real brain saver. There is nothing more frustrating than being stuck and not progressing but the hints help a lot.
Amazing graphics and sound. Play with headphones to pick up all the nuance sounds.
Hours of exploring 5/5
Its so much fun—I’ve rediscovered it during the Corona times. Its like a brand new puzzle each time I come back
Needs an update! 5/5
Fireside developers, The Room is having issues with the latest iOS. Portions of the game that play videos, such as when you closely inspect the photo of the mansion with the eyepiece on, now just show a black screen.
In spite of this I’m still attaching a 5 star rating because your games are just that good, and this was the beginning of a truly epic franchise. That said, please come back and fix the problem so the game still runs as intended! Even today, it’s still a game I go back to play again from time to time!
Fun so far only level one digging it! 4/5
By Ken balls
Fun looking forward to next level
Nice game. Very MYST like 5/5
Totally enjoyed the room but far too short! Going to download #2 now. Worth the money and this coming from someone who never pays for apps.
Excellent puzzler 5/5
Finally playing this after years of being without an iPad. It is so, so much better than all the free-to-play junk out there.
The Best. Game. Ever. 5/5
Followed shortly by The Room 2, The Room 3, and The Room,Old Sins, in whatever order you choose. It’s probably a good thing that there aren’t more, or I’d never get outside!
Great game, graphics wonderful 5/5
By Maida P
Playing this game on the IPad, after playing on the mini-iPad
I previously owned and liking it so much more! Keeps you interested and not too difficult that you want to stop playing.
Great game 5/5
This is a great game, it keeps my 66 year old brain active
Got through to the end chapter (the epilogue) and it just goes to a black screen when it tries to start it. Wonderful :/
I really like the series played all of them,
The only thing is the hints kinda give the answers away a bit quickly.
To some people the puzzles are too easy but at the same time it looks great and the stories are interesting.
Hope to see a new version in the future like this one!
I can’t stop playing. I feel as though I am entrapped in the search for the Null Element! Though I lead with trepidation, I find my self enthralled with solving the next puzzle. Much like a good novel, unable to put it down but disappointed that you have completed it too quickly instead of savoring each moment!
Worth $0.99 but incredibly short 3/5
Aesthetically great. Puzzles were tons of fun. Disappointed that I ended up finishing all of the puzzles in about and hour and a half.
It never gets old 5/5
I bought this game when it first came out. And it is still just as absorbing as it was all those years ago.
I followed up by purchasing every subsequent ROOM. Still completely thrilled.
As a matter of fact, it’s the only game/set of games that I’ve ever bought since Myst.
Love it and you will too.
It Crashed - big time! 2/5
I was working on a room and when a message came into my iPad, the program seized up and I had to delete it, work my way through the previous rooms in order to get back to the place where it crashed. NOT happy - though, I gotta say, if it were less engaging, I’d just delete it and go looking for another puzzle game.
Mesmerizing mechanics 5/5
I have played all four currently existing The Room games. I just came back around to start a second time through them.
The Room starts out the series with a gentle, yet chilling, ambience. Each cracked piece of the puzzle draws the player deeper into the well-spun web of mystery.
At the lowest price and with the shortest and easiest gameplay, this introduction to the Null labyrinth has the perfect balance to spur players to purchase The Room Two. You will want to see what puzzles and perils come next!
The Room 5/5

KEEP EM COMMING...Waiting for the next game.
Great game, but has bugs on latest iPad and iOS 13. 5/5
When it gets stuck, just exit the game and then open it again.
It’s ok. 4/5
Would love to play but... 1/5
By Adawg 71
App crashes every time I try to play it on my new iPad
To short but great 5/5
Finished whole game in one day
Totally beyond the beyond! 5/5

I have never played a game so enthralling, mysterious, and filled with some of the most complex puzzles as I have seen in The Room. The graphics and animation are just superb.
This is one highly addicting game. I look forward to the next two Room games!
NO IN APP PURCHASES 5/5
This game is already the best I hope the make more, WOW.
Beautiful, complicated, and ultimately incredible 5/5
I love this game so much. It’s a wonderfully complicated game that presents many challenges that really make you think.
A part won’t load 3/5
I just recently bought this game and I’ve been working and am now stuck on chapter 3. In order to get a code I need to look at the photograph with my eyepiece, but every time I do that my screen goes black and I can’t see anything and I have to close the app. Wish I could have rated higher :/
A very relaxing puzzle game 5/5
Save this for when you need to kill time, like a traveling on a plane. Challenging but not totally frustrating with an excellent hint system should you need it.
Screen goes black in chapter 3 3/5
Started playing again after finishing game a few years go. Was going well but then screen went black in chapter 3 when looking through eyepiece at old photograph. Tried restarting iPad but this didn’t fix it. I have iPad Pro 2018 running iOS 13. Please fix!
Fun and challenging 5/5

The game really makes you think to solve the puzzles and when you do it is really satisfying. Highly recommend!
