So vast is the puzzle genre that it’s perfectly possible to group together more ‘traditional’ takes like Tetris and Threes with a more expansive effort like The Room, which attempts to add an air of mystery to the physical-based brain teaser. Though we’ve since been treated to what’s arguably a superior sequel with The Room 2 (and, indeed, The Room Three is nearing release at the time of writing) we’d recommend anyone new to the franchise start off at the beginning, unlocking the layers each box by piecing together the game’s string of visual clues at their own pace, safe in the knowledge there are two more games to take on afterwards.
