Argh, I know the feeling. Felt like that especially during the last chapter where the easy solution just didn't hit my eye :-)

If you want to know - just tell me which three you found :-)

Just found it. Took me a while. Thanks, it kinda bugged me that I'd used a little trial and error to solve that puzzle.

Yeah, I tried that left and right, up and down... nothing happens.
it's the top part of the table, where you can see the stars at night etc..
I flipped a plate with a hole in it, and there is a hole in the middle of that table. There are like 4 bars when I use the eyepiece, but can't' move them at all.

Anyway I see quite a majority of people asking for clues and hints. Just my humble opinion, The Room is not really a difficult game. You just need to have patience and a keen eye for observation. Take your time, use the spyglass and think out of the box (no pun intended)

*** Spoilers ***

Actually the tilting should be it. There is something like a grill on the table where two stars are underneath. Tilt the device to one side (left or right) until one of the stars moves to the middle. It gets locked there, then the other way to bring the second to the middle. When both are in place, the will glow in green and a box will open where you will find a handle to put into the hole you already mentioned.

Hope this works!

That would be something - to be able to play with that box in safety

Feeling the same way here: For what it's worth, the hints were not always helpful, but the game itself can really be solved just by calm observation. No trial and error. I really hope there will be more to come!

Just finished this today and I thought it was a fantastic experience. The polish and attention to detail was just stunning.

That being said, I did get stuck on a few occasions and the tips are usually very vague.

This game was worth every penny and turned out to be one of the most enjoyable experiences I've ever had on an iOS device, the integrated mechanics and control systems were just so well thought through and the amount of bespoke effort required to make it work as well as it does deserves nothing but applause.

Terrific game.
