Hmmm... Well, it took me over a half an hour. But I'm not that smart, and this is the first time I've completed a game like this. (Back in the 90s, I spent an hour or so clicking around in Myst. With the exception of Solitaire and Minesweeper, that's the extent of my gaming experience.)

i got the first two pieces of the square (top-right and bottom-left), but have not even figured out where the puzzles are for the last two.

Probably spent 5-10 minutes on it so far.

8 minutes here. It took me a while to figure out what 4 digit code to type in. Of course, once I saw it I felt stupid for not seeing it earlier.

Don't try to bend the spoon. That's impossible. Only try to realize the truth.

There is no spoon.

Yes I had trouble with the spoon for sometime too. Took me around 10 minutes to solve the entire puzzle. Very nice ! Kind of reminded me of "saw"

Hint: The spoon can bridge gaps

I had a different problem with the spoon. I was playing while using headphones for sounds. When I put the spoon to its "proper" use, the sound F/X was at an, shall we say, uncomfortable volume.

I got a lot of the items, but could never figure out where to use some of them, I tried pretty much every location to click on, so I am lost.

I got as far as the box too... it plays some kind of video which eventually points to a spot on the wall... Frustrating is the word for it. Some places that you have to click is so small, so unfair, that it is *not* fun.

OMG....it's over--finally....this is ridiculous....you get that secret code from a hint on the webpage you are directed to when you use the URL written on that note(even if you find it, you'll wonder--why on earth did they have to choose this as the code).....this game must have been designed by someone tripping on some shitty substance

Nevermind on my box question, it looks like this one went beyond the extreme to make it even fun. Kind of like jumping out of the pool when playing Marco Polo. Fish out of water!

The thing that I find funny about these type of games, is that way back in 1981-82 I wrote a text based game in Basic called "Get In" which was about getting into a house. Kind of the opposite.

Any other cool Room games that you know of?

Why would you want walk-throughs?
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
