Alchemy Stars 1.5 Year Anniversary A Little to the Left: A Cozy Organizer’s Dream Primitive – A Stone Age Survival Shooter Starship Troopers Extermination Is A Bug Filled FPS Warhaven Global Beta Test Results

Every so often a game comes out either a full-price AAA or small indie title. For example, later this year is Choo Choo Charles for PC and next year on console. Then we have the survival game set in a furniture store which upset IKEA. Now we have what looks like a new take on the Resident Evil franchise. However, it’s not like you ever expected. So, without further ado let’s introduce Save Room.

You can see the homage to Resident Evil by loading up and starting a new game. Upon starting those games you got the menacing voice saying Resident Evil for example and now we get similar with this game. We also get a very similar score to games in the iconic Capcom franchise. This is also a puzzle game where we have to rearrange the inventory which looks very much like Resident Evil 4

Save Room And Is It A Hit Or Miss

The reviews on the Xbox store in the UK are fairly positive and on Steam it has a total of 872 reviews with 97% saying Overwhelmingly Positive. From 84 recent reviews, 97% rated it as Very Positive. The question is, am I adding to that 97%. So, let’s find out

Gameplay

It’s straightforward in terms of gameplay. You have an inventory space and try to rearrange items to make it fit. Something we’ve probably all done in the Resident Evil games multiple times. There’s really not a lot more to say except it works and now a gameplay mechanic is its own puzzle game. To sum it up, developer Fractal Projects combined Tetris with the inventory section of Resident Evil 4.

Graphics

Nothing special and in all fairness, it doesn’t need to be. It looks similar to Resident Evil 4 but different enough not to be a complete replica. Nonetheless, the similarities are clearly evident. It’s clean and does a job. It’s a game that isn’t needing photo-realistic visuals. Though some more polished visuals would have been appreciated though it seems they wanted to mirror the feel of the original Resident Evil 4. So let’s compare it with the game. Below is the original Resident Evil 4

Now look at Save Room

Audio

You’ll hear clicks as you move items, so it’s pretty similar to what you get in Leon’s inventory on Resident Evil 4. The music would fit nicely into a Resident Evil game or any game with a similar feel. It’s not as stunning as say God of War Ragnarok, however, that’s not exactly essential. However, something a bit more awe-inspiring would have been nice

Story

There is no story to speak of. You complete a puzzle and move on to the next one

To Conclude

It’s not a long game, you have a series of 40 puzzles, and once done you get thanked for playing and back to the main menu you go. It’s possible to beat and get all trophies/achievements in a good couple of hours. Thankfully it’s cheap around £3.99/$3.99 on the Xbox store at present and around the same price on. PlayStation. Steam is cheaper as well for the UK. So, it works well and does the job it sets out to do. It’s only really worth it if you’re a fan of the genre. If you hate puzzle-based games but huge Resident Evil fan it’s not really going to offer you much.
