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.

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- 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.

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 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...
