  • Surreal logic puzzles Oct 30, 2016

    By Don Coyote -><-
    I've enjoyed the Cube escape games (even the very short ones - they «were» free), and this installment of the Rusty Lakes mystery was the best so far! They all have very strange, dreamlike, at times spooky and/or creepy, Twin Peaks inspired elements, some dark humor, and great puzzles. This one in particular had a nice balance, and the quest to get perfect meals adds replay value (a couple of the ingredients are somewhat difficult - but I was able to get them all. See end of my review for a vague hint). Definitely unsettling (I'm glad I'm a vegetarian), and I'm still befuddled as to exactly what's going on in the series, though I've followed the order of the games from their website), I can't wait to explore the next games of Rusty Lake. [ingredient hints: sometimes you have to do something more than once. Also, the king does not amount to one, that owl might be hiding something! Shocking that poor chick made me want to throw up. Good luck!]. ;)

    Babaal vai Babaal xD. I thoroughly enjoy the game. It's worth 5 star as per the story line and simple but tricky puzzle and the game flow. Also mentioning the graphics plus the voice over intro / outro is somehow unique and loved it. I felt like watching some mystery horror drama flims (the vibes ) ;) ________________ Keep making such stuffs dear team ♡♡

    At first I was hesitant to buy this game, I worried that it wouldn't be worth the money, but it proved to be an incredible game. I spent around four hours finishing it and it's definitely worth the money because it keeps you busy and it's so interesting. I was never bored, it's a fantastic game and keeps your mind working. I've played every single Rusty Lake game, and they've never disappointed me once. I love the little elements of horror sprinkled in. What perfection. The voices, the graphics, the soundtrack, the characters, the storyline. All your games are so artfully crafted. The mystery of rusty lake is an incredibly interesting one and this game was just another great addition to the collection. I want to say keep up the good work to all the people working on these games because they're just amazing and probably the best thing I've ever played, so good job on that. I love you guys!💓💞💕

    Excellent game. Macabre storyline, as always, but so beautifully done. Definitely worth the money.

    And its so hard to rate each game separately, as they all feel as 'one' and are all brilliant in their own way...I love the weirdness, the horror, the creepiness, the characters, the creative puzzles, the story reveals, etc. etc.....this game/series is something very special and everyone should at least give it a try...their earlier games are FREE to try out and see if it's your cup of tea..but I'm betting most won't be able to put it down and want to keep discovering more about the mystery of rusty lake....that's exactly what happened to me and here I am having downloaded all their games which includes buying the premium new ones which are well worth the price with the longer stories. My only regret is I didn't get on board with this thing sooner! An absolute mind-bending masterpiece. David Lynch would be proud.

    Yet another amazing piece from the Rusty Lake story, I definitely got my money's worth, even if it is a bit shorter than expected. Love the twist at the start, when you first figure out what your main objective is!

    If you like point-and-click puzzlers or room escape games, this is one of the best in the App Store. There are some mild horror elements, but if you've played the free Cube Escape series from these developers you'll know the levels of violence that you can expect. (And if you haven't played them, you really should. They're all phenomenal.) As always the artwork is lovely, the soundtrack and voice acting are perfect and add to the experience rather than distracting from it. There are one or two puzzles that really take some logical leaps (the deer in the hat?) but there are countless free walkthroughs online if you really get stuck. If you don't catch everything the first time through you can replay it to get a better result, with a prize that can be used in another game. I can't recommend this game, and everything in this series, highly enough!

    I love all the rusty lake games, however after paying for this one it's a little disappointing as I finished it as quickly as the free games and it didn't feel particularly special in comparison.

    Welcome to Rusty Lake Hotel. Five dinners will be served to our guests and you're in charge of making sure each meal is worth dying for. You're sent to help gather the ingredients for each meal and notice the meat required happens to correspond with one of the 5 guests each night. Solve puzzles, riddles and search for clues in order to gain the proper tools to "gather fresh meat" from the guests. I heard about this game on the CoOptional Podcast. When Dodger described the premise, I immediately knew I needed to play it. This game did not disappoint. It is well worth the money and I'm intrigued to find out its part of a series of games which are free to play. If you like slightly creepy, macabre things and enjoy puzzles, pick up this game and give it a go. You won't regret it.

    It's okay but like the cube games before, makes very little sense and has no real plot other than solely to be strange and esoteric horror. If the point is to murder all the animals and literally every room has a knife, why can't I use it for that purpose? Other adventure games have far more logic behind the puzzles tying into a plot or sequence of events. The payoff isn't much more than random sinister scenes of horror.
  • First Rusty Lake fail Jul 12, 2020

    By Mike in Rome
    I am a big fan of the Rusty Lake puzzles, but Hotel is the first "premium" game I tried / paid for, and unfortunately the first with a significant bug. I solved the first room, Mr Deer, without any trouble, but I missed the rosemary and didn't realize that it would affect the number of stars earned. (Suggestion: instead of calling ingredients "optional" maybe let players know that it's desirable by adding a star on the menu page.) I reset the game so I could go back and get the rosemary - the game restarted but then will not progress beyond the opening sequence and The Lobby. I tried resetting several times, even deleted and reinstalled the app, but the same problem every time - the game is stuck in the opening Lobby. I deliver the local delicacy to the guests, and then - nothing. The phone doesn't ring and the game will not progress. And no way to get help from the developer, unless I leave a negative review like this. I regret buying this game.

    A very fantastic and at the same time frustrating mystery puzzle game wherein you should really look harder on finding clues to get all three stars on all objectives. With such stunning and detailed animations, this truly deserves 5 stars.

  • Only frustration of the game Jun 2, 2020

    By SiouxsieQue42
    I love the Rusty Lake games, but now I see the frustration expressed in another comment. The optional stars require things done in a certain order; otherwise you must reset. The developer responded with this was inaccurate, but I’m not sure it is entirely inaccurate. (Spoiler alert) If I went from carrot to Room 1, I wouldn’t be able to get 3 stars, if in Mr. Rabbit I used the knife on the hand not Mr Owl’s forehead, I miss an item. I hope I phrased that in a way that it doesn’t ruin the experience for someone else. I love the games but it is annoying having to reset the entire game, rather than just resetting the specific day. I’ll keep trying and hopefully I’m wrong.

    I loved playing rusty lake hotel, but i didnt like the ending, can u make mr owl say"thank you for this dinner, why dont you join" and then mr crow, the bat and the frog chef come and then they eat you, still though, i recommend 100% for you to play
  • Not as good as the free games Sep 3, 2019

    By zingo curmudgeon
    I’ve played all the free games so finally tried this paid game. While I think the game is worth the small cost, it’s somewhat disappointing. The logic puzzles in “hotel” seem simpler and more straightforward than in the free games. What’s frustrating is how much the ordering of events is relevant to getting a top score. The result is that beating the game involves a lot of rote repetition to order your actions optimally. This makes the game last longer but at a cost of tedium, particularly because the ordering is arbitrary and not clued in any way. In particular there’s at least one instance (2nd guest meal if done in correct order) where an item is required twice in order to get a perfect score - but one of the two actions makes the item unusable. So those two actions have to be done twice, for no reason other than arbitrary choice. (If the item remaine available to be picked up again, ordering wouldn’t matter.)

    It was really enjoyable to play it through. However, i didn't manage to get 3 stars for any of the meals, and it is not that exciting to play it again just for the stars.
  • Redoing rooms is confusing May 3, 2021

    By pevensen
    If you miss a clue and do the rooms out of order it seemed there is no way to recover and get all the stars unless you restart from the beginning, but you added the ability to replay a room. It’s confusing, however, when you get an "optional" ingredient and it says “it’s too late”. It seems like it ignores the ingredient but it actually adds it to the recipe and appears if you redo that room. You should change that message and flow to show that it is saved and you can use it to redo the room.
