First off, it’s not a bad game. Secondly, it’s no “The Room.” If you like “The Room,” like I do, then you may like aspects of this game. Here is where the game goes flat though:
You will find yourself tapping and swiping around the screen, hoping to randomly come across the next riddle. “The Room” does a SIGNIFICANTLY better job helping you move along seamlessly and still being stumped from time to time. In this game, I was stumped usually because I didn’t either zoom in further on the riddle, couldn’t swipe it the correct direction, or the most annoying reason... because when you use your lenses to see hidden features it won’t show you the hidden features until you have zoomed onto the specific area. Here is an example of that: you know there is a word somewhere that is a solution to a code, so you put the lens on and search the room... no hidden code. You zoom in and out of everything and no code appears. Then you take a hint and it says you have to zoom in on some super specific area you would never actually figure out, it’s still not there... so you take off the lens and put it back on and boom, it appears. Really? I search for 5-10 minutes with the lens on and it only appears after you replace the lens? Plus you have two lenses, so you find yourself not only tapping everywhere around the screen constantly, but also putting on and taking off multiple lenses. Here is my advice to any purchasers... if you have finished all of “The Rooms,” maybe give it a shot, if you have limited money and are deciding between apps then let me help you solve this one... buy “The Room,” or something else.
As for the contraptions and riddles... some are stupid and simplistic, some are good and interesting and some you would never guess in a million years. Sooooo. Yeah.
