Rooms: The Unsolvable Puzzle – Game Play
This begins as a seemingly simple puzzle game. With the protagonist Anne, finding herself trapped in a huge mansion. With a maze of rooms behind many doors to navigate through!
You are given a quick tutorial in the first few rooms. With the help of a friendly lantern, who pops up with tips and hints. Including showing you how to use objects like telephones as teleportation devices, that will come in handy escaping a room.
However, the game quickly moves up a notch getting more tricky! You soon have to think ahead before you slide the rooms up or down and left or right. To get Anne to the door to escape the room.
With strategic use of old-fashioned phones. And later, even more useful, mobile phones to teleport. You can move Anne to the right room. And get her to the door. Or if the door is padlocked, help her to get the key, to unlock the door and escape. Other useful items include ladders, so that you can navigate up and down.
There is also an overall challenge, which you solve by connecting each room correctly. As this will connect the pieces of a certain item. That will help you discover the underlying story of the mansion’s owner, the Toy Maker.
Rooms 1 How to Play
To ensure each room is connected properly, therefore allowing Anne to escape the room. You have to check that each section is in colour. Rooms that not in the right place will appear in black and white.
You can only move a room when you are actually in it. Arrows will show you the options available to you to move. Point and click on the arrow to move the section Anne is in. And it will slide her to a new place.

Tip: Think ahead, to make sure the sections are in the right place. Before you, for example use a phone to teleport. Then you’ll have the right space free to move the next room to the right place!
