Rooms: The Main Building Tips

Check out our strategy guide for Rooms: The Main Building, which includes explanations of all of the items and room types you'll find, and a walkthrough for the mansion and Rooms Street puzzles.

HOW TO PLAY

The game is broken into two parts: the Mansion rooms (slider puzzles), and Rooms Street (point-and-click puzzles). The goal of the game is to find the four golden puzzle pieces so that you can escape the strange universe. To do this, you'll have to explore the three rooms off of Rooms Street: the Subway Station, Rooms Hotel, and Antique Shop. 

You'll notice, however, that these rooms aren't accessible right away. Before you can play these levels, you'll have to acquire some items by visiting the mansions and playing until you've opened all the chests and taken what's inside.

Mansion I's items correspond to Rooms Hotel (first floor). Mansion II's items correspond to the Subway Station. Mansion III's items correspond to Rooms Hotel (attic), and Mansion IV's items will help you in the Antique Shop. So, expect to play through the game in that order. Play each mansion stage first, then exit out to Rooms Street once you've got all your items to go and grab the puzzle piece.

Rooms Street
Map: Clicking here transports you to the Mansions where you play the slider puzzles. From the Mansion screen, you can click Close to return to Rooms Street.

Menu: Click here for a choice of the Options screen (where you can adjust things like screen resolution and whether to play in windowed or full mode), or Main Menu.

Trash Can: When you discard an item from your inventory, it ends up here in the trash can. You can add an item back into your inventory by clicking on the trash can and selecting the item you wish to carry again.

Special Exits: There are three exits off of Rooms Street: Subway Station, Hotel Rooms and Antique Shop. Read the walkthrough for more information on how to access and beat these special rooms.

Final exit: This exit will appear after you've found the fourth and final puzzle piece. You can pass through it at any time to end the game, or keep playing the Mansion levels.

If you pick up more items than your inventory slots can hold, extra items will be stored in the trash can on Rooms Street.

Mansion Screen

  • You can travel to each of the four mansions by clicking on them along the top. New mansions will appear as you clear the previous one.
  • A white pointing hand and "You are here" message tells you what room you're currently playing. To select a different room, click on it with the mouse.
  • Progress follows a linear path, as indicated by the grey dots. You can't play a room unless you've cleared the one before it. Sometimes the path will branch off into multiple directions. Some of the rooms are optional at first, but you'll need to pass them all eventually if you want to get the good ending.
  • Sometimes a path will lead to a chest. Make sure you open all of the chests, because they contain important items for finding the puzzle pieces.
  • Some rooms will be locked at first, and the game will give you a message such as "Beat Mansion IV, Level 1 first." This means that you can't access this room until you've advanced to Mansion IV and beaten the first room there. You'll have to keep playing until you've done that, then double back to play the older room, which will now be unlocked.
  • Click on the Replay buttons to re-watch the cutscenes between your character and the book. Sometimes these contain important clues.

Room Screen

Clock

  • If you're playing in timed mode, the clock will count down to show how much time you have left to complete the level. When time is about to run out, a gate will start to close over the exit gate. When this happens, you have only a short amount of time left to finish.

Tassle

  • Click on this to hide or show the menu buttons.

Help button

  • Click once and your cursor will turn into a "?". Click on any element in the puzzle (such as wardrobe, clock, ladder) to learn more about it. To get rid of the "?" click the Help button again.

Show BG button

  • Hover your mouse over the "Show BG" button and you'll see the background tiles without ladders and other obstacles.
  • Click on the "Show BG" button and you'll see an outline of the grid that you have to fill in. Tiles that are filled in are in the correct spot. Squares with question marks show tiles that still need to be filled in.

Menu button

  • From here you can Restart Level (try the same level again from the beginning); Select Level (takes you to the Mansion map screen), Option (adjust screen resolution, etc.), go back to Rooms Street, or go to the Main Menu. This also pauses the game.

Map

  • This takes you to the Mansion screen if you want to try a different room.

Restart Level

  • A shortcut for starting the same level over again.

Using items

  • To use an item, click on your character to open the inventory. Click on the item you wish to use and select "Use it," then click the item on the object you want to use it on.

Puzzle Piece Levels

  • These special rooms, Subway Station, Rooms Hotel and Antique Shop, are all accessed from Room Street.
  • There's really no point in visiting the puzzle piece areas until you've opened all the chests in a particular mansion, because only then will you have all the items you need.
  • Items you can interact with by either picking them up or using an item from your inventory on will be highlighted by a white silhouette when you scroll your mouse over them.
  • Click anywhere on the screen to move your character there.
  • You can click on ladders and stairs to move up or down them, even though they don't get highlighted.

MANSION ROOM ELEMENTS AND TYPES
Doors

  • There are three types of door in Rooms: locked doors (must be opened with a key that you find somewhere in the level), two-way doors that can be opened from either side (appears as a door with a knob on either side), and one-way doors (door with a knob on one side only) that can only be opened from the direction of the doorknob.

Explosive

  • If you have a candle in your inventory, touch this crate of explosives to blow up the wooden barriers that are blocking exits.
  • If you're in the same room as an explosive when it goes off, you'll die. Once you've lit the explosive, make sure you quickly exit the room by walking out, climbing a ladder, etc.
  • Sometimes simply walking to another room isn't enough – you have to use your mouse to move yourself to the farthest corner of the room away from the explosive, or it still might get you.
  • If an explosive is in the same room as a wardrobe, you can light the explosive then use the wardrobe to transport the explosive to another part of the room as a means of destroying inaccessible barriers.

Hydrant

  • Use the hydrant to pump water out of one room and into another. You can only pump water if the room with the hydrant in it is located above a water-filled room.
  • You can pump the water in three directions: 1) "rightward" - pump water from the room below into the room to the right of the one you're in). 2) "leftward" – pump water from the room below into the room to the left of the one you're in). 3) "here" – pump water from the room below into the room you're currently standing in.
  • If you choose to pump the water to "here," make sure you have an escape plan, whether it's quickly climbing a ladder or walking to another room or using a telephone.

Mirror rooms

  • When one mirror room is slid, the other mirror room will slide in the opposite direction - unless one of the rooms is blocked, in which case it will not move.

Subway stops

  • The Underground symbols let you call the subway to move horizontally between any two rooms on the same horizontal plane. As the tutorial says, you can only use the subway if the rooms are along the same horizontal line as each other.
  • When two subway stations are aligned in the proper horizontal manner, the lights on either side of the subway sign will be lit up.

Telephone rooms

  • The red telephones are actually teleporters. If you make a call on one, you can teleport yourself to any other room where there's another active teleporter.
  • Inactive teleporters are a slightly duller shade of red than active teleporters. You cannot make calls on these teleporters, however you can travel to one by making a call from an active teleporter.

Wardrobe rooms

  • Wardrobes allow you to switch the contents of the room you're in with the contents of another wardrobe room while you yourself stay put. For example, if you switch your room's contents with another wardrobe room that has a ladder in it, then the ladder will appear in your room.
  • Broken wardrobes are burnt-looking versions of normal wardrobes. You can't use this wardrobe if you're in the same room with it, however you can switch the contents of a room with a broken wardrobe in it if you're in a different room and using a normal wardrobe. When this happens, however, the broken wardrobe will be transferred to your room as well along with the room's other contents.

Water-filled rooms

  • You'll die if you attempt to enter a water-filled room unless you're wearing a fishbowl.

Whirl-Round Clock / Spinning Rooms

  • The number of pendulums on the clock indicate the number of times you can spin the room before the clock breaks. After the clock breaks, you get no more spins.
  • Click on the diagonal arrows to spin a room (left for counter-clockwise, right for clockwise).
  • On rare occasions, it's actually not beneficial to spin the room right away, but rather, you'll need to slide it a few times first. However, all levels must end with the spinning rooms in the proper upward position.

MANSION ROOM INVENTORY ITEMS
Candle: You must have this item in your inventory in order to light explosives.

Cell phone: This is an inventory item that will send you to any teleporter in the level from wherever you are, as opposed to having to be in the same room as a red telephone.

Fishbowl: Wear it on your head to pass through water-filled rooms unharmed.

WALKTHROUGH - MANSION ROOMS (WARNING: SPOILERS)
Here's a walkthough for the mansion and Rooms Street levels. Wherever possible, I've included the solution that leads to a "perfect" score, where all of the tiles are in the proper order to complete the background image. In a few cases where I couldn't find the perfect solution, I've noted down a solution that will get you to the gate, but just not with a perfect score. I've marked these as (IMPERFECT).

Explanation of instructions

Walk = move the character one space in the direction specified (i.e. "walk left" means walk to the room on the left. "Walk left twice" would mean walk left through two rooms, and "walk all the way left" means walk left until you can't walk anymore.

Slide = slide the room in the direction specified.

Climb = climb up or down a ladder in the direction specified.

Get = click on the object specified to add it to your inventory.

Use = use an item - either one that's already in the room (such as use telephone), or an item from your inventory (use fishbowl, use cellphone).

Unlock = Click on a locked door to unlock it - you'll automatically walk through it as well.

Pump = Use the pump to pump water into a room, I will specify which direction to click on (Righward, Leftward or Here).

Sometimes when you use a cellphone, wardrobe or subway there will be more than one possible room to select, represented by small icons. I've indicated the correct icon to click on by stating "upper" or "lower."
