Review: Rooms: The Main Building (Nintendo DS)

 

So, did it make the cut, or did it only have a nice concept?

Rooms: The Main Building is an enjoyable puzzle game for the Nintendo DS. Above all else, it is fun to play and features plenty of content on top of a great creation tool. Puzzle veterans might find it a bit too easy, and the lack of Wi-Fi is a bit...

Rooms: The Main Building First Impressions

 

We were easily sucked into the world of Rooms, an intriguing sliding puzzle game with a twist.

Rooms: The Main Building

 

Remember the tile slider puzzle you had as a kid? The tiles were in a 4x4 board and each tile had a number, from 1 to 15. There was one missing tile in the bunch and that allowed you to slide the other numbers around while you attempted to put them in...

Rooms: The Main Building - ds

 

Sliding doors.

The slide puzzle: crutch of every tired, lazy or creatively bankrupt game designer. Used to bulk out countless adventure games, these pictorial conundrums - in which you slide tiles one by one around a bordered play area while attempting to arrange...

Rooms: The Main Building- NDS

 

Though Rooms is a little rough around the edges, its puzzle premise is solid- it's just been done so much better before, making it hard to recommend over something like Professor Layton. It's not as if the DS isn't inundated with these sorts of games -...

Rooms: The Main Building- NDS

 

Its flaws will likely put off all but the hardiest of puzzle fans, but ultimately this is the exact audience the game was designed for. Rooms: The Main Building is certainly an interesting addition to the genre, and while the DS already plays host to a...

Rooms: The Main Building- NDS

 

If Natsume could go back in time, they'd probably want to tidy up the muddy visuals which make it hard to see important details and ditch those daft story segments. Plenty to get your head around though. Add in the clock quietly ticking urging you on...

Rooms: The Main Building- NDS

 

There's just not enough here to sustain a whole game, a problem exacerbated by the ruinous presentation, lacklustre graphical assets and fractured storyline layered on top.

Rooms: The Main Building- NDS

 

Overall, the gameplay of Rooms: The Main Building trumps the presentation issues. It's fun, and it's easy to pick up and let go at a whim, making it a great portable title.

Rooms: The Main Building- NDS

 

Rooms: The Main Building requires a lot of cleverness and mental flexibility, and the satisfaction you gain from unraveling its puzzles is substantial. With plenty of good puzzles for only $29.99, Rooms is worth a visit for anyone seeking a cerebral...
