    It was quite good. Some enigma are hard to figure it out and after searching a few days, I had to watch the solution. It is definitely not as intuitive as the "paradox" from the same studio, which I greatly recommend !

    This is a very good and scary game. It makes me think seriously with my every move but at the same time it's cool whenever i finish every task. The sound effects is very real.

    Incredibly well made. Although it’s not my most favorite cube escape, this was still really up there on the list because of how well the game was made. I absolutely adored the additions of how you could interact with things. The graph bit where you had to find a point and travel there by changing the direction and moving forward was also a nice touch, along with the book and how you had to look at one thing and figure it out gradually. Very well made, I have no doubt paradox will be just as good if not better.

    Fun, challenging and have no clue what's going on but completing the missions and puzzles have been satisfying. Great developer with many games and for free too. Had fun and am excited to try all the other releases.
  • Won’t let me click the “To Be Continued” button at the end May 13, 2020

    By litlboche
    I know this a little dramatic but I couldn’t necessarily finish the game. There was a glitch at the end where I couldn’t click the “To Be Continued” button. I would really like to be able to finish it because I’m trying to complete every one of the games and I was already stopped by this glitch. I know I technically finished the game but my OCD is just kicking me in the leg. I give a 4 star since this game is just amazing. I would give it a 5 star but I really want to finish the game. I already tried resetting the level and it still doesn’t work.

  • Ink bottle glitch Aug 5, 2020

    By Bluejay1013
    Update: Still can’t finish. Made a mistake in order of navigation of points on radar with no way to correct & no way to get the next cube. After 3 attempts just deleting this chapter. Watching the walkthrough to see how it comes out. Hopefully “Paradise & Paradox” chapters are better thought out. Too bad, still love the series, but disappointed that developers didn’t foresee this. *************************** Love the series, but very frustrated with the ink bottle glitch. Took the ink bottle in part 2 early in the game which apparently caused something to break & after watching the walkthrough (tried the hints) no fish would appear. Restarted part 2 waiting until after getting the pearl to take the ink bottle. Tried a couple of different settings on the radar, now I’m stuck again because I can’t change the settings & get the black cube or octopus. Again checked the walkthrough & found I can’t change the settings on the radar. OMG, have to reset again. Really! DEVELOPERS, Please fix so the ink bottle doesn’t mess up the settings & freeze the radar. Will reset again because I love the Rusty Lake game, but I’m soooo frustrated.

    The game is amazing overall, but I cannot finish it. I made it though the first room, but then when I have to direct the angler fish, the fish doesn’t move in any direction whatsoever. I got the ink from the squid, but now it won’t even let me place the ink in its spot. I’ve tried everything from the walkthroughs to the hints and according to both, I’m doing the right thing, but they do not work when I try to do them. The game is still amazing in every way, but lessens it’s goodness by this simple broken puzzles.

  • Unfixable glitches and poor touch detection - too frustrating Nov 22, 2020

    By Soulsmear
    Interesting visuals and subject matter (or it seems to be interesting) can’t make up for bad gameplay. When the controls don’t work, it’s frustrating but you can forgive it. But when you encounter a game-breaking and ending glitch after you’ve been playing for a long while, well, that’s an insta-delete. If it hadn’t been free I would be a bit more upset. Either way, I don’t think it’s worth your time.

  • Can't Finish May 14, 2017

    By Warriorcat28
    Look, I love these games, but there's a glitch in this one that makes it impossible to finish. With the part with the fish, the fish WILL NOT swim in the right direction towards the tube. I have watched video walkthroughs to see if I'm doing it right, yet the fish WILL NOT swim right. They change directions every so often, but no matter what I do or when I reset the app, it won't work. Please fix.

  • Broken app Feb 22, 2018

    By Whishuwerehear
    These games are really fun when they work but this one is broken. When I try clicking on the compass like the hint says, nothing happens. It did respond for one click and then nothing. I’m deleting it. If I see that this is fixed I’ll gladly download and play again but as it stands this is a broken toy on a shelf.

    It's a fun point & click. At the time of writing it's ad-free and for free. It is mostly of medium to easy difficulty, although one puzzle really hat me stumped. It is short but since its free I cant complain.
  • Amazing Series May 21, 2019

    By Jerk butt
    There are too many people giving this game low scores because they think there is a glitch preventing them from progressing. Trust me, these aren’t glitches. I was stumped on a couple of the same things mentioned, but I stuck with it and realized I was missing something. This is an amazing series, and this episode is one of my favorites. So ignore the reviews claiming they can’t finish because of what they believe are glitches and keep trying to figure out what you might be missing if you get stuck

    Good game! Quite hard, kind of scary and mysterious. Would be nice to have a puzzle-by-puzzle hint system rather than just a YouTube walkthrough. I'll try the other games!
  • Engaging, haunting Feb 12, 2019

    By Certified Vampire
    While the controls were a little clumsy, the game itself was extremely good. The puzzles required attention to detail. They seemed to be simple – dragging the player into the trap until they could not just put it down, compelling them to work their way out. Even the help was not hopeless spoiler. For that matter, the game itself leaves one wanting more! I really cannot wait for the next installment. Bravo, Rusty Lake! (And what the hell was with that shark?)

    I lovingly hate this game! Rusty lake games are imaginative, unique, puzzling, dark, thought provoking and addictive. I have played quite a few of the series now but this one drove me insane. I've had to watch YouTube walk throughs for help on this one and a few others. I have learned a lot about myself via these games - I'm impatient, don't like asking for help and I'm quite stupid! These games are great but I've had enough of feeling dumb now 🤣

    All of the other Rusty Lake games are fantastic. This one has a glitch though where tentacles appear and then disappear and you can’t fill a bottle you need to progress. Very frustrating. Buy one of their other games instead.
  • Can’t take the key Oct 22, 2017

    By seahorsemonkey
    I cannot seem to take the key from the the little box on the table, I’ve tried tapping and swiping at it but it will not go into my inventory which seems to be halting the story and I can’t progress :(
  • Frustrating Oct 22, 2017

    By mykall57
    The game is fun all in all but the I can’t use the microscope no matter what I do. Hope they fix that and every other bug I haven’t been able to even come across
  • Hints 👎🏻 Jun 1, 2019

    Disappointed that there are now hints. Wish there was some way to toggle them off, but I couldn't find an option.

    Would rate it higher if you could pay to get rid of the obnoxious ads.
