Top 10 Mobile Games Of 2013

10. “The Room Two”

Maybe it should have been subtitled “Another Room.” Actually, that’s pretty dumb, so never mind. This sequel to Apple’s Game of the Year for 2012 had players trying to escape instead of opening boxes, but otherwise stuck pretty close to the eerie atmosphere and puzzle-based gameplay that made its predecessor so successful.

If anything, maybe Fireproof Games played it too cautiously with “The Room Two.” But that’s life in sequel-land. Give people more of the same and some will grumble that you didn’t blow their minds again. Make too many changes and others will complain because it wasn’t what they expected.

Regardless, “The Room Two” was still miles above most other mobile puzzle games in terms of design and execution, and that’s what counts.
