The Room Three
Did we miss something on diversity?
Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.

What’s It About?
In THE ROOM THREE players try to prove themselves to the mysterious Craftsman by solving all manner of puzzles, from the cubes that will be familiar to legacy players of the game, to new types of brain teasers that still involve tapping, swiping and squeezing the screen. The game starts on a train, but you'll quickly find yourself in other locations fueled along by vague, cryptic hints. As you solve the puzzles, you'll create objects that often help you in the next part of the adventure. For example, a handle you find as the result of one puzzle may combine with a control panel in the next puzzle. When players get stuck, there are hints to help them along.
Is It Any Good?
Puzzle games in the app store don't get much more solid than those in the previous two installments, but this third in the series is likely the best one yet. The puzzles themselves are well designed and challenging, but the game doesn't punish you if you're unable to figure them out, offering timed hints to keep you moving (though it wisely doesn't force these on the player). There are even multiple endings, which adds replay value. Occasionally, the lack of a map is frustrating, since there are more locations to navigate, but it's definitely not prohibitive. It's a game with depth and variety that will engage older kids and adults, but likely will be too challenging (and perhaps frightening) for young children.
