    Each cube escape game seems to get a little better: more interesting, more involved, more “Oh my!”... IMO, this one took it up a couple more notches with greater puzzle interaction, greater depth of story, greater length, and, of course, an extra helping of “I can’t believe that just happened!”. For me, it was insanely fun, and even though there were a couple things I didn’t quite understand, I still managed to get through it without any help, so I’m feelin’ like I’m ‘on top of the cave’. To boot, the end of this one leaves you with an ominously creepy feeling about what’s coming next. I can’t imagine how they’re going to top this one, but fortunately, I don’t have to, cuz I’m getting ready to download the next one. I’m already savoring the anticipation😋.

    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.

    Great puzzle escape game with a good difficulty level. the puzzles were challenging and satisfying solve to solve. Other than a sections mentioned below, I never had to resort to guesswork (although I did use several clues). and the puzzles felt reasonable and engaging. Great game, would highly recommend! ***spoilers*** one minor drawback is that a couple times in the submarine I couldn't figure out how to find the next coordinates, so I just guessed until the coordinates locked. even after completing the game, I'm not sure what I missed that was meant to give me the next coordinates. I never figured out how to use the shell or or empty ink bottle, and I couldn't figure out how to open the box on the table with map and ink bottle, even after looking at all the clues related to this area. would be interested to know what the proper solution was. I also never figured out the Morse code thing. I played without sound, but it never looked like the box actually activated.

    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.

    Creepy and challenging. I didn't find this too easy which was great, but I did have to look up once what my next move should be...but if you need a hint it's good that you can get it. Like the other Cube Paradox the graphics/story are wonderful. A delightfully macabre game

    I downloaded this game because I've almost finished the whole series but got stuck on the first puzzle where you have to get the spider to destroy its web to set the fly free. I watched the YouTube tutorial (made by the developers of this game), was doing what they were doing, but the spider still kept going to the fly and killing it. I would have loved playing this game, too. Oh well. I love some of your other games though, they are amazing: fun, unnerving, and pretty creepy. Thanks for reading

    When I try to get the black cube from the claw machine those wheels from the compass room stop working. I have checked my coordinates and depth 1000 times and when I pull the lever it just works 10 secs then stops. Please fix this.

    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.

  • 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.

    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 🤣

    I do recommend. However 1 Star lost cause of too much repetition. I endorse say 3 levels to complete a task but 6 is too much. Overall, well done. Thanks.

    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?)

  • Can’t click to be continued Jun 25, 2020

    By 4754sage
    I love this game so much! It’s so fun and intriguing but when I finished the game it said “to be continued”, and I couldn’t click it which makes me sad because I would love to finish it. I don’t know if it’s because they are still working on the continued part or if it’s a glitch? This would definitely be a 5 star game if there wasn’t that to be continued part.

    I love these games, but I'm disappointed that the spider puzzle isn't working for me. No matter where I click, the spider still goes and eats the bug. Am I doing something wrong, or is it the game?
