Rooms

Rooms - 01/10/07 11:07 AM

Puzzle Adventure Game, with MOVING ROOMS.



Move ROOM itself & character, use several items, and finally escape through the exit. This game is made by Handmade Game, game maker group of Korean University Students.

Graphic & Music are really excellent. When you play it, you could see what I mean. Especially, player character is filmed(!) by the real actor with Blue Screen, and you could experience very unusual thing from her movement in game.

Difficulty is... very high. First stages are so-so, but it became very difficult after the middle of the game. You must use item properly, not only move rooms. Combination of those 2 aspects makes game interesting & difficult at once.

Bad Thing... This game doesn't have SAVE. Rookie player could take around 3 hours till the end, and without save, player could suffer too much. And interface is little bit uncomfortable, to use Arrow Key & Mouse at once.

This is excellent puzzle adventure game, with moving Rooms & Character. But it's sad that this doesn't have SAVE, even if it has high difficulty.

Thanks Mrkwang.

It sounds interesting and original. I wish it had a save though. Finding 3 hours of uninterrupted gaming time around here would take an act of God.

I really enjoyed playing this game however I can't get past the 4th room.

Is this download the full game or just a Demo?
I think the students did a fine job with this.
Hmmmmm.......can't figure out what picking up all the newspapers do.

That's FULL GAME. 13 rooms total, as I know.

Originally it's WEB GAME, but there happened TOO MUCH TRAFFIC, so they make it download at now.

Newspaper has some brief hints for new objects, or something more.

I am curious as to why this game slipped by Chief to add to the Free Games Galore section?
Chief, you out there?

GreyFuss -- have you read your own post??? Didn't it strike you as well, more than a little rude?

Wasn't trying to be rude. Just curious.
I will reword it.

Thanks, I appreciate the info on the game. I'm downloading it right now. As for playing it for 3 hours, that's not going to be possible for me either.

Hello fellow Boomers,

I finally played the game last night. I enjoyed it very much. I didn't finish it, I'm hoping when I go back to it later that I can just pick up where I left off.

The graphics in this game is excellent. If they are students and they're this talented good for them, I hope they keep going making games. thumbsup

I did get killed off quite a few times, but I'm glad you could just pick up from where you left off instead of having to start from the beginning. I think that is a big put off for games that do that.

Re: Rooms - 01/30/07 03:23 PM

Thanks Tigger for the d/l info. wave

Glad to hear you enjoyed the game StarLite. I hope you can pick up where you left off. Mr. Kwang's review says there are no saves.

It's good to know the dying isn't awful laugh I don't mind dying as long as I can just pick up where I left off laugh

Re: Rooms - 01/31/07 11:20 AM

looney4labs, I love your avatar, I love animals myself.

I got killed off quite a few times. I've walked out of a room onto the black screen and died there and I also drowned a couple of times. But yes when you die you are given the option of starting over from the stage you left off. I like games where you have to figure things out, it's keeps the old mind active.

Playing these adventure games I told my husband I think if I were locked in room somewhere I could probably escape.

I find that when I'm watching tv. I'll start telling the guy in a movie to do something based on what I would do in a game. That's pretty bad. But at least these games keep you thinking, which is good exercise for the brain.

Thanks, Starlite. My avatar is Solo, my lab dressed for Christmas. I really do need to change that soon, or else just consider myself ahead of the power curve for the 2007 season.

I give advice all the time to folks on t.v. They listen about as well as my kids.

Did you go back to finish the game yet?

Re: Rooms - 01/31/07 01:01 PM

Bit of news about the game The Room. If you right click you can forward to where you left off. I tried this and play the level, of course got killed. Hope this helps.

I didn't finish the game yet. I can't play very long because of my disability, that's why I could never play the game 'D', I think that's what it's called. I should give it a try and see if you at least start from the stage you left off at. It looks like it might be that type of game.

Starlite, I'm sorry. I missed the info in your post about getting back to where you left off. Thanks for coming back to let us know.

Have you gotten further in the game?

Mr. Kwang, thanks for the update. It's always great when there is a new and improved version wave

Re: Rooms - 02/05/07 11:29 AM

thanks may just try getting the new version but I am Really enjoying the game smile

Right clicking just gives me the flash options of forward etc, not sure if it takes me to the games I was in before!!

would have preferred a patch, no biggie to me as I have unlimited d/l's through an 8 gb line.. but for those who don't, it is a bit of a killer to start again!!
Posted by: StarLite Moon

Re: Rooms - 02/06/07 10:46 AM

Actually, I cheated a bit. oops

I restarted the game and did the right click forward and went to the spot where I left off and replayed that area. Maybe by doing that you may not get your prizes. I'll have to replay it again sometime. I've had to take a couple of days off from the computer. I've been spending my time watching tv.

Re: Rooms - 02/08/07 10:44 AM

Hi, looney4labs, is your avatar Solo when he was a puppy, he looks so cute. smile

As for The Rooms, I guess I should say no I didn't finish it. I couldn't figure out how to get out of some of the rooms so I just did the FF to the end, which I know is a bad thing to do thumbsup

It's nice to see people with talents putting them to good use. In my game I use a lot of unknown artist's work which I will credit them fully for. It's a good way for unknowns to get their work and name out. Well I'm off

Re: Rooms - 02/08/07 11:13 AM

Hi ya, Starlite, Yes, that is my Solo boy the first week we had him--8 weeks old and 10 lbs.

I understand about that not sitting thing--my son has back problems and sitting is the worst.

It's great to have folks pulling together artists of all kinds and giving them a way to display their works.

I'm looking forward to seeing it. wave

Re: Rooms - 02/08/07 01:27 PM

Starlite, I have used your technique to practise the later rooms and so far I can get to level 12. 13 has me beat... looking at the website someone has done it, but maybe I just haven't invested enough time in it yet!! I would suggest practising each of the later ahrd stages until you can write down your moves then use them next time you do the whole game in a run smile

Looney, you will Love it if you play it!!

I can sympathise with your son. Yes sitting is the worst. Last Feb. I was bedridden for 7 weeks. I could only get up to go to the bathroom. My poor husband who is also disabled with a back problem had to take care of me. Actually that last bout I had gave me the story for Roanoke. Another story, another time.

A plea to game developers, please remember the disabled who can't sit very long when you make your games, we need save options.

Re: Rooms - 02/10/07 10:46 AM

Password Save ability added to [Rooms].

Not sure we could praise him about adding more ability in this freeware game, or blame him for not adding it for the first time.

Eh... Let's praise him. smile

Great game, especially with the passwords. I'm stuck at room 13. Is this the last room [say it ain't so]. More Rooms, please.

Cat in the Hat, I like the passwords too. I don't know how many levels there though.

He's thinking about making commercial version of [Rooms], with longer play time & more rooms. Nothing is fixed until now, anyway.

Re: Rooms - 02/20/07 11:34 AM

I believe 13 is the last one... cry haven't cracked that one yet...
Posted by: Cat in the Hat

Re: Rooms - 02/21/07 04:09 PM

Wow. Sorry to hear that I'm at the end of the game, but level 13 may take me as long as the other levels combined! I hope they add more levels.

Re: Rooms - 02/21/07 06:34 PM

Thanks for the info, Mr Kwang. I haven't gotten to the 13th level yet, but I have enjoyed the ones I've done. wave

Well, that is good news. We thought there was only 14.
