Rooms: The Main Building is a single player puzzle game for Nintendo DS/DSi that challenges players to find their way out of a confusing world of more than 100 2D rooms that are inexplicably jumbled into tiled segments. The game utilizes a sliding tile game mechanic to move through these settings, as well as a set of special items like ladders or phones that can be overlaid on the play area to bypass problematic areas. Additional features include a level editor, and the ability to share levels with other players over a Nintendo Wi-Fi connection.

Rooms Like None You Have Ever Seen
In Rooms: The Main Building players walk into a mystery like none they have ever experienced. An invitation abruptly arrived at your doorstep diverts you to the entrance of a world that is physically scrambled, yet filled with mystic beauty. In that world, you need to reach the exit by sliding the pieces of rooms in the same way as a slide puzzle. At the same time you must use fantastic devices to navigate through each of these rooms. The solution is only a doorstep away. Getting there is the easy part. Finding a way home will be the adventure.

Gameplay
Rooms: The Main Building is a point-and-click puzzle game that utilizes the classic sliding tile puzzle mechanic to challenge the player to move through a gameworld made up of more than 100 rooms that have been inexplicably rearranged. To escape these rooms players use the DS stylus or their finger to click on the blank areas next to the section of the room that your character is in. This shifts your character to that section. But think ahead and plan accordingly to avoid problem areas or circumstance that may block your path. In addition to spatially oriented thinking, special items can also help you through your journey. For instance, use a ladder to climb vertically to a new room section, or teleport to entirely new areas or rooms via one of the mysterious telephones available throughout the game. These items and more can be found at various spots in the play area, or in the central area connecting rooms, know as "Rooms Street." Here you can also interact with non-player characters and get a better understanding of how this jumbled world came to be.

Share Your Rooms
Nintendo DS/DSi players of Rooms: The Main Building can not only create their own game levels, but also share their creations via a Nintendo Wi-Fi connection. Be a part of the Rooms: The Main Building community and see if you have what it takes to solve challenges created by players across the globe.

I had hoped for more variety and enjoyment from this game. After playing a few times it became very repetitive and boring. Each screen is very similar. However, the difficulty level does increase. Not worth the money.

Unique puzzler with great music! March 29 2010
By AlexJouJou - Published on Amazon.com
Fun:   
I play a lot of puzzle games. While I generally prefer the match 3 sort of games this one appealed to me as it reminded me of a puzzle type I played a lot when I was little. This game is just like that game that used to come in Cracker Jacks. It had a bunch of squares with one missing so you could shift all the little pieces around to try and get the picture to come out right. Sometimes you have to work and re work to get it perfect and even the simple ones can stump you for a while. I can't tell you the number of hours I wasted doing these types of puzzles! Probably not as many as I put into my DSi but that's beside the point.

The graphics on this are pretty good. The people look like 3D models on top of a non 3D environment (reminds me of Glory of Heracles). I'm not an expect so don't know if they are 3D but that is how they appear. The puzzles are very fun and quite clever and do get progressively harder. There are pieces that remind me more of a platformer or action game as well (although not too many which is good because I could not be any worse at those types of games..my kids consider me quite pitiful!)

The music is great so far -- very unique and suitable for the game itself. There are a few sound effects that are neat as well.

The only issue I could see is that some of the graphics are quite small. I am playing it on my new DSi XL but feel like on a DS Lite it might be really tough to see some of the items and pieces of rooms.

Overall it got 5 stars from me for not only reminding me of a favorite childhood pastime but for being unique in a puzzling world where we get so much of the same or, even worse, lame and insipid games that are either too hard or too easy. If Elmo were here he would be asking "which one of these games is not like the other" to which you could heartily respond Rooms: The Main Building. If you are awaiting Puzzle Quest 2 pick this one up in the meantime. It will do nicely to pass the time!

A worthy challenge for puzzle fans April 5 2010
By Julie - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase Fun:   
I love puzzle games but I'm not that great at slide puzzles so I took a gamble on "Rooms" based on the first two reviews. When I received the game, I found out it's much more than a slide puzzle. It isn't just a matter of sliding tiles into their correct positions. This game has plenty of little "helpers" like transporters and a train. The latter involves lining up two railway depot tiles horizontally and the player can travel between tiles without moving them. These add variety to the puzzles. There are at least 4 mansions to clear (I'm only at the beginning of number 3). The puzzles graduate in difficulty but the change isn't so radical until you get to the 4 to 5 star puzzles. Even then I just take a little more time to reason out what to do. If you like more of a challenge, there's a time challenge mode too and a trophy room to display bragging rights to your friends! If you're like me and aren't a genius at slide puzzles, don't let this prevent you from considering this game. Its biggest drawback: I can't get anything done because I keep playing it! This game is positively addictive.

A winner in my book! March 30 2010
By M.D. - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase Fun:   
I just got this game yesterday and let me tell ya, its already got me hooked! I'm already into the 2nd mansion (there are 4 in all plus a bonus one). If you like the "slider" puzzles (there were a few on the Professor Layton series), then you'll like this game because that's basically what it is, but with a little "magic" added to it. Just when you think you got the puzzle finished and find that your stuck, you look it over again and get that "a-ha!" moment and then figure out how to move the rooms around again to get out of the rooms! Its easy to catch on to and a fun storyline to watch! I definitely recommend this game for people who like puzzles!

Worth the $ I paid! March 28 2011
By Gaming Mama - Published on Amazon.com
Fun:   
I was at a local game store that was having a buy 2 / get 1 free deal on used games. So I grabbed ROOMS...not really knowing much about it. What a nice find! I am really enjoying this game!! There are 4 levels with multiple puzzles in each level. Some are pretty easy....and some take multiple restarts to figure out. You have to slide rooms around to find keys, open doors, sometimes drain water out of rooms so you can enter them.....in the hope that you can ultimately enter the room with the exit door so you can get to the next level.

PROS: Background music is nice. Makes you feel like you are on some kind of spy mission :)
It's great that you can always click on the "?" if you forget how to do something.
Some rooms are easy, but it is fun on the harder ones to think a few steps ahead so you don't get stuck.
If you DO get stuck, or you die (by drowning or blowing yourself up)....you can restart the level.

CONS: Haven't really found any yet.
