The Room Two was launched last week on Android, and though some of you may have already started chewing on this devilishly difficult and gorgeous puzzle game, there may be many that are simply stumped at a particular point. We're going to walk you through the solutions for the first two chapters to get you on your way. Keep in mind that these are some significant spoilers. Don't read ahead unless you're well and truly stuck! You can also make use of the in-game hints in the top-left.
