Rooms: The Main Building
Nintendo DSOverall, 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. I'm not sure how well the Wii version compares to the DS, but if you've been looking for a decent puzzler to pass the time, I'm sure you could do a lot worse than Rooms: The Main Building. Goofy name aside, it's a challenging effort and definitely unique on a system that already has its fair share of puzzle titles, and that's really saying something.
Nintendo DSRooms : The Main Building est un jeu de réflexion tout à fait approprié pour la DS. Le concept est original et nous invite à trouver la meilleure solution pour sortir un individu piégé dans une sorte de taquin géant. On lâche le soft difficilement mais on regrette que les niveaux se terminent aussi rapidement. Malgré sa durée de vie limitée, Rooms constitue une bonne surprise et se veut accessible à tous les publics.
WindowsRooms: The Main Building isn't the most accessible puzzle game, and it's not the kind of title you'll breeze through. By the same token, though, its thoroughly unique concept and absolutely ingenious level design are impossible to ignore. Expect lots of head-scratching and restarting of levels and feelings of exasperation before you've finished – but the challenge is also what makes conquering a level that much more rewarding.
Nintendo DSThe few interesting mechanics that are mixed into Rooms' slide puzzles just aren't enough to make it entertaining from start to finish, and the coolest modes are locked from the start. The Wii and DS versions may be $30 budget titles, but even that seems grossly overpriced when the same game is available on the PC for less than $10.
Nintendo DSIf we dissect the game to the level of the ideas we find some interesting concepts with which something good can be made. On the condition that further though goes into how they get attached to other good ideas to make for an interesting end product. The end result here, however, certainly isn't anything to write home about.
WiiOverall, I think that Rooms shows great promise, but simply does not lend itself well to the Wii format, maybe the DS version is an improvement but those are rooms that will stay locked until another day.
Nintendo DSRooms: the Main Building is a puzzle game that is just boring. Puzzle fans who have puzzle-fan friends are the only players who can be entertained by this game, utilizing the room editor and the sharing ability. If you don’t like puzzle games and they frustrate you, run away from this game as if a hungry dinosaur is chasing you.
