If you didn't own an iPad when the excellent 3D puzzler The Room [$0.99 (HD)] came out in September of 2012, you were out of luck as it originally launched as an iPad-only title. Thankfully, developer Fireproof Games released a pocket-sized version for the iPhone and iPod touch just a few months later, appropriately titled The Room Pocket [Free], which allowed a broader audience to enjoy a really fantastic game. Well, if you're still iPad-less then you're probably aware that the game's sequel The Room Two [$0.99], which launched this past December, was similarly released as an iPad-only title. A sad day for small iOS screens.

However, as Fireproof had previously revealed to us, a pocket-sized release for The Room Two was in the works for "early 2014." The developer has confirmed to Pocket Gamer today that the official launch date for The Room Two for iPhone will be this Thursday, January 30th. Great news, as that's only about half the time iPhone and iPod gamers had to wait for the pocket edition of the original game. And, as is evident from our 5 star review, The Room Two is a worthy sequel to the original, and deserves to be played by as many people as possible. Keep an eye out for The Room Two on iPhone later this week.

Update: Fireproof has clarified in the comments below that The Room Two will be coming to iPhone by way of a Universal update rather than a separate "Pocket" edition like the first game. Awesome! So don't keep an eye out for a new app later this week, but instead for an update to the existing version of The Room Two.

    YES

    It probably won't be free like the other one, just because...

    • Pray For Death

      The first one was only free to try, you had to pay to unlock the rest of the game.

        Oh I didn't know

      Why would it be free? Devs spent a ton of time and energy on these apps. They have families to feed and mortgages to pay for. I'll gladly pay whatever they ask from me. I remember paying $60 for video games on consoles. The least I can do is pay $50 a week on iOS games.

    Is it on the ipod too?

    • rewind

      Lol probably not, nothing works on the iPod touch anymore.

      • bigjack66

        Yeh! What's the difference between the specs of an iPod compared to the iPhone apart from the phone bit obviously?

      • dancj

        I believe iPods generally have half the ram of their iPhone counterparts.

      • bigjack66

        Really! Wow thanks for the info.

    • galaxy124

      Ofcourse it will run on the iPod touch 5.
