Wow what I freebie, I'm presuming it's to celebrate the launch of the room 2 but sheesh giving it away, makes me think slightly about paying full price for the second one (even though ill be picking up the room 2 at midnight I get a funny feeling about this sale) hmmmmm I hate the App Store pricing strategies and hope for a day when dev's don't need to give the games away.

One of the best iOS games of all time.

Awesome freebie! Puzzleboxes feel so at home on iPad touchscreen. And it's not too long, get it and give it a try, you'll get hooked and finish the game before you realize it

I think giving away a game to promote the sequel is a pretty nice move. Usually it's the other way around - and the worse: the previous game is premium and the next game succumbs to freemium madness.

I got to ask, I know it says no iPhone 4 support but lately I've been playing games that's say that but perform nicely on the device. So how does it play on iPhone 4?

Edit: nvm, thought this was the Pocket version

Nice! My girl recommended it to me but at the time I had an old iPhone. I'll be able to play it now.

Is definitely worth getting once it does go free (late tonight)! Great game! I'm one of the early adopters and I definitely got my money's worth out of this one! Very much looking forward to the sequel.

I can't wait to try this whenever It finally shows free as it seems like something I'd enjoy, but I've never tried it. If I like this the ill have to look at the room 2 which I suppose is the whole point of the promo lol.

I saw in the App Store game details it mentions how it's now free to download and play, the first level is available and the others are iap's.

I'm not too familiar with this game, but is that new?
