I simply cannot rate the iPad game “The Room” highly enough. It’s intriguing, dark, and beautiful. And it has a spooky ambience that makes it perfect for us Halloween lovers.

The premise is that you, the user, are in a dimly lit chamber that looks like the attic of a creepy gothic church. In the middle of the room, on a table, is an intricately designed, mysterious box. And you have to figure out how to unlock and open it.

That’s all I should say. Telling you more–i.e., describing all the amazingly cool things that happen when you do unlock a box–would be spoiling the mystery. I don’t want to rob you of the game’s visual surprises.  I can tell you that it’s very satisfying each time you crack the code.

An extension for the app was just made available a few weeks ago. If you have an iPad, trust me…you should get this game. It’s the perfect way to spend an overcast fall afternoon.
