    "I have never played an escape/puzzle game this satisfying in a long time. Everything down from the graphics to the levels had me on the edge of my seat. I personally prefer playing this game when it's dark and quiet to get most of the experience"

    "I have been a fan of The Room games for years now and after playing The Room 1 & 2 to death, I couldn't wait to try out The Room Three when it was released. This game totally sucked me in and I couldn't put it down till I was able to figure out how to escape! This game also has an extremely simple to follow user interface so if you are new to gaming this game won't be hard for you! Now, go get lost out in the The Room!"

    "I absolutely love DOOORS. I love the concept of escape rooms but I have severe anxiety that prevents me from leaving the house much. This game does an incredible job of recreating the puzzles I've read so much about from real escape rooms."

    "I love scary room escape app games and have been looking for a good one that is challenging. Slendrina:The Cellar is a good one in that you have to find 8 missing old books than try to escape. So it is much more than just an escape game and this makes it more challenging."

    "A really creepy game featuring the concept of an escape room. The graphics aren't all that great but I think that just adds to the atmosphere of the game. Best of all it's free, so if you love to give yourself a good scare there's nothing to stop you from trying it."

    "This is not a good search result because it is only one game and not a 'best' list. Someone searching for this would want a list of several best room escape app games and not just to land on one game. This looks like an interesting single game and I would be interested in it but it would not have been the solution I was looking for with that search query."
