Welcome to The Room, a physical puzzler, wrapped in a mystery game, inside a beautifully tactile 3D world.
"... something of a thriller, The Room doesn't want you to feel safe... what it revealed to us in that time was pretty powerful. The Room knows exactly what it wants to do, which is dish out intrigue, mystery, and unease."
"...the music pulls you in, the secrets hold you... the mystery is heightened courtesy of some outrageous production values... Each detail is fully realized... this thing is a looker."
Touch Arcade Preview, August 2012

I’m gonna go out on a limb here and say that The Room was the best iPad game to be released in 2012. And by go out on a limb, I mean “agree with every iPad owner on the planet, as well as Gamezebo’s own Best of 2012 list). The box within a box within a box provided more puzzlers per second than any game I’ve had the joy of encountering; the only complaint being that there isn’t more of it. Read more »

This year, it’s The Room and Hero Academy. Read more »
