Doors & Rooms is a tricky game and one that will test your brain to its limits. From a presentational point of view the game looks great. There are around 100 different rooms and while some do share similarities, for the most part they are all pretty well detailed and you never really think that the game looks ugly. This escape game genre is getting more and more populated with each month, but so far Doors & Rooms is head and shoulders above the competition in terms of visuals and overall presentation.

The idea behind Doors & Rooms is that you are trapped in a room and you need to escape. At first it really is as simple as just opening the door and walking out, but each room after this gets trickier and trickier. You will need to have your wits about you as you figure out what you need to do. You see when you leave one room you just enter another one with a door that again needs to be opened. You will need to figure out how to open that door. Will you need a hammer? A secret code? Who knows, but it is up to you to figure it out.

From a game play point of view it’s hard to really put this into one category. There actually seems to be a genre called escape games that is getting more and more popular, and I guess that you could easily say that Doors & Rooms fits into that, but I think that describing it as just that is doing the game a disservice. As well as being an escape game it is also a puzzle game and it to me at least it had the feel of one of those old school point and click adventures.

There are around 40 levels in the initial release, and I’m sure there will be future updates with brand new rooms for you to escape from. One of the things that I love is the way it is like you are playing against the developers trying to crack there puzzle to escape the room.

For what sounds like such a basic game Doors & Rooms is fiendishly addictive. This is one of those games that you will sit down with the intention of just doing one or two rooms, but then find you have spent an hour playing this. One other thing I forgot to mention was that this game is FREE !!! so what are you waiting for? Go and play this game!
