100 Rooms. Mind-numbing logic puzzle games, try them!
Sep 24, 2012 8:32 AM –
100 Rooms is a puzzle game where you must escape from a different room on every level. Each puzzle is different; sometimes you have to find items and combine them, on other occasions you just have to complete actions in a certain sequence and so on. The puzzles have a logic about them that is truly challenging, so if you’ve previously been a fan of similar games such as 100 Floors, 100 Doors or 100 Gates– this will be right up your street!
Tested on: HTC One X
Pros & Cons:
- Plenty of levels to work through!
- Earn coins via mini-games!
- Busy community of solvers who post solutions!
- Very similar to other games, so not for everyone.
100 Rooms is a game incredibly similar to the likes of 100 Floors, which we reviewed a while ago. The premise is simple- each level requires you to solve a puzzle of some kind in order to progress. The point of 100 Rooms is to escape each room by opening the door. Each room is unique and offers a very different challenge from the one before.
You explore by tapping the left, right up and down arrows on screen, plus tapping items to pick them up. You can combine items by highlighting them and this often leads to discoveries which help solve the puzzle. For example, using a key on the locked door or an axe on some wooden boards to get at what is behind them. I did find some levels terrifically tough- especially those where you have to move in certain directions in a set order, or collect a very specific numbers of things. Much of gameplay is trial and error.
These kind of games always get lots of online attention, especially from addicted gamers hungry for solutions. Subsequently, it doesn’t take long to find forum and blog posts which give you the hints you need. While this is clearly cheating- it does help if you’re pathetically stuck! The other way of getting hints is buying them in-game using coins. You can earn coins by playing the mini games. These appear in the lobby screen and get you to quickly identify silhouetted images in a set time. The more correct images you select the more coins you win.

These games are very popular in the Google Play Store and iOS, so I think you probably already know if you like these kind of brain-teasers.
I think the game takes the position that you already love this style of puzzle game so doesn’t beat around the bush with simplistic early levels. From the first room it is very tough and you’ll rely more and more on hints as the game progresses. If you’re completely new to the genre, this might overwhelm you a little. That said, if you’re a veteran of such games, this will leave you as engrossed and as mentally taxed as anything else you’ve played.
The graphics are very simple, but that is part of the games charm. Essentially you have still images of different room views and close-ups of found items. You can occasionally zoom in a little to view things closer, but the game will automatically let you do that if you tap on an area.

The game features very minimal sound- just the odd click here and there.
