Contrary to popular belief, it's not true that the Inuit culture has more than a hundred words for snow, but it is true that the Japanese language has roughly fourteen symbols and words for the English word 'perfection'. I bet you're all enthralled at this little piece of trivia, so to avoid contentious discussion let's now turn our attention to Room Perfection, a lovely, albeit brief, escape game from Gam.eBB, creators of the Dismantlement series of puzzle games.
Using your mouse, click on items and discover clues to solve the various puzzles around a very small and cleanly decorated room. You'll even encounter the odd mini-game or two. Navigate the room by clicking on the small, gray arrows to the left and right of the screen, and click on items to collect, use and zoom in on.
Room Perfection is a short and sweet game, with puzzles that are generally logical and with easily grasped outcomes. There are, however, a couple of puzzles that are out of the ordinary and may temporarily confound. But for all its pointing and clicking delight, this is a game that leaves some questions unanswered. For instance, there's a bomb with more than one way of being detonated, and its inclusion in the game can hardly be construed as anything other than random. Perhaps it serves as a reminder of the Dismantlement games, but who knows? Oh, and while we're on the topic of the bomb, you may want to know that this is a timed game. You've got thirty minutes to find a way through the door before the bomb goes off. Heh! As if we need a whole half hour to escape a room. Total underestimation of the powers of the JIG community.
For its compactness, and clean and orderly graphics, Room Perfection is a really nifty escape game, with puzzles that will barely raise a sweat. But because it is compact, clean and orderly with a bomb's potential to make it all but, this is a game that provides a simple and thoroughly enjoyable diversion. I wouldn't say 'perfect' but totally and most definitely a gratifyingly good game to play.
