Wii | Puzzle | Hudson Soft | 1-2 Players | Out Now
Each room contains a sliding puzzle that you must solve using the Wii Remote's point-and-click capabilities. To move from one square to the next, you simply point at an item or a spot for Mr. X to travel to and he'll carry out the actions whenever possible. To move square, you move your cursor towards the exterior and if there's space to move, then arrows will appear that can be clicked to slide it in a given direction. But don't expect to just walk wherever you want, as many levels impose multiple restrictions on you. Some squares feature their own gimmicks that lend itself to a challenging experience, such as one-sided doors, ladders that allow you to climb up or down to a different area, border frames that prevent you from moving a certain way, and so on.
Solving puzzles isn't the only part of the game, though. Much of the game is focused on solving the mystery of this special place, going to different locations via Rooms Street. As you progress through the game, new areas will open up for you to explore and new items will be discovered. There's also 12 different achievements to aim for, a multiplayer Battle mode, a puzzle editor, and two unlockable modes. So far, Rooms: TMB has been a slightly-impressive affair and I'm confident that the game will only improve as I continue playing. Stay tuned for a review here on Wiiloveit!
