Rooms: The Main Building
Make room for this one in your game collection!
This is one of the oddest and most intriguing games. The mechanic is totally different from any other game BFG sells. The developers definitely have an attitude -- the commentary in the game is edgy, tongue in cheek. The game is tough, but doable. It's been available for over 3 years, but if you haven't tried it, check it out!

This is a different kind of game, and I was ready to play something different. The game starts out easy, and gets progressively more difficult as you move on. One of the good things about the game is that they explain when something is different in a room, and how to use it.
This is a game that made me really think at times. I love the HO games, but I like them because a good number of them are rather 'mindless', and I play to relax.
If you like puzzles, you won't be disappointed in this game!

you will love it.
I have this game on my nintendo ds and have no problem with the visual as far as game enjoyment. It's basically a moving block puzzler but so much more...(your character moves within the rooms too#. Your goal is rearranging the different rooms to try and excape through the "door" room. Each room has different objects in them to make it possible for your character to travel or gain entry into other rooms, the challenge is getting your character into and out of them and also the rooms themselves rearrange like a sliding puzzle. It is simple game operation but challenging enough to keep your intrest for hours at a time. It has great replay value too. It never gets boring with all the objects and scenarios that are introduced. Lots of levels and a few different locations to explore with a great storyline #good humor) and objects you must obtain to go further in the game . It also has challenge to finish in less moves giving you gold rating. A great strategy game WITHOUT having to battle monsters so you can stay relaxed with great satisfaction in solving each level. It is a very unique gameplay and I hope they keep developing more of this kind. I highly recommend.

WISH THERE WERE MORE LIKE IT!
I was sorry to see this great game end! It is different and challenging, which makes it fun. You know there's a solution, you just have to find it in your brain. Unlike other games where you have to find a certain object, here you have to find the solution, which leaves you with a real sense of accomplishment when you solve a level.. I wish they would make a sequel or that there were more sliding puzzle games like it. This is definitely an untapped market. If anyone knows of a similar puzzle, please let me know! Thanks!

Would love to have more like this!!!

HOURS of play, excellent challenge
I really love a game that makes me think. Sometimes I do get a bit overwhelmed with this one, but as someone else said - the challenges start our easier, and as each new element is added they explain how it works. This game REALLY requires the ability to imagine future results and you try to get through to the final room with a door. I am currently in the stage where I need to explode through a wall but simultaneously need to get out of the exploding room in time not to 'end myself'.
When you get tired of the HOG or simpler puzzles, come and workout your brain.... prevent Alzheimer's here!! :D
Highly recommend. (Prepare for some frustration, AND great satisfaction!!)

The ultimate sliding puzzle game
You either like sliding puzzles or you don't. If you don't, this game is not for you. But if you do, this game is the ultimate. With variations involving keys, subways, teletransporters, mirrors, one sided doors, explosives, and ladders, you wil have the time of you life.

This game is nice if you want something different. It's similar to the iPhone game Dooors (which is free). Wish they would have made the screen bigger. There really was no need to have so much worthless framed space and have the game in a 5" x 2" area. Need to include a way to skip the tutorial.
