    Not much to add to what others have said - all games by RL are awesome. Just adding my vote for hints: the walkthrough is great but it gives the solution, whereas I would appreciate the opportunity to figure it out myself. I recall one RL free game where you had the option to watch an add to get a hint (not a solution!) - I wish this we're added to the paid versions as well. Keep up the great work, RL team!

  • Enjoyed thoroughly, BUT... Jul 19, 2018

    By Lou in Louisville
    First, I want to say thank you to the hardworking developers that have allowed me to enjoy countless hours of fun, creative thinking, a little frustration at times, but overall a truly enjoyable gaming experience. I first completed all of the FREE cube escape games and loved every single one. I don’t usually spend money on games but I had to for Rusty Lake because I knew the type of game it was going to be and it didn’t disappoint. Definitely worth the money. But - in my opinion, and I see others have felt the same, some of the mini games and puzzles were either too easy or just plain hard and I had to consult the walkthrough. My favorite part of the game are the mini games and I kept waiting for that really fun one like all the cube escape ones had. But anyway, I love the game, love the whole Rusty Lake story, and look forward to buying the next one (which I’m gonna do right now). Again, if you are looking for a fun and exciting game that will keep you engrossed for hours - this is it. I suggest trying some or ALL of the FREE Rusty Lake cube escape games first so you can get the feel for what kind of game it is and how to play it because it’s unlike any game out there. Thanks for reading!!

    Already 5 stars and I've not even started playing. I don't need to. I know already. Played all the free games, they got me through lockdown, I DM'd the guys to ask about donating and they don't have that option... just said feel free to download the premium games so that's what I'm doing. I know it's 5 stars without even playing the game. RUSTY LAKE ARE THE BEST. Still wish I could donate a small sum. Like £20 to show my appreciation Please let me know if you you can please do that?

  • Another great game from Rusty Lake Jan 15, 2018

    By Suzsho
    I normally don't like things that are creepy and bizarre but Rusty Lake has such a wonderful and unique way of presenting things... with their terrific graphics and deadpan humor... it all becomes delightful. I actually had moments of gasping and laughing out loud... no small feat for a computer game. Like many others, I started with the Cube Escape series, an incredibly generous free offering (thank you RL!), and have been a fan ever since. This game is another great one! I also wish it were longer because it's so good. The playing level is not too hard overall for experienced gamers but I did need help at a couple of places.... mostly with a couple of the mini games (like the vegetable patch) because I just couldn't grasp the logic and got frustrated with so much trial and error. (There's a handy in-game walkthrough for each level.) Aside from that, I had a ball living in this moody world for a while, and solving all the different puzzles. Really fun! Thanks, Rusty Lake!

    I enjoyed this one quite a bit, but it did touch a little too much on my squick factors with some stuff (the outhouse, for instance). I'm used to there being a degree of that in these games, but it felt a little excessive in this one. Other than that, it was an interesting way to tell the story and left me wanting to continue to the next chapter after I completed each one!

  • Trust the negative reviews, this is disappointing Jul 18, 2020

    By anastasiakowa
    I loved the Cube Escape series but was reluctant to purchase the Paradise based on some of the reviews. I decided to try it because I thought “how different could it be when I really liked all other games by them?” Well this one is truly the least favorite of mine. Like others said, there is a lot of going back and forth and again and again on the map. The puzzles look like they were developed without much thought. I just kept randomly clicking on some of the puzzles because they were underwhelming and I still was able to solve some of them that way. Some same graphics were used from their other games... all the voice overs even for the female characters were recorded by males for some reason....storyline was not captivating to say the least. I LOVED their games such as Roots and Paradox and I’m not sure what happened here... like all the captivating storyline and thoughtful puzzles they used to have were not present, and this game really focused on stabbing and killing different animals and bugs crawling out of peoples noses.... and that’s basically it. I’m hoping the developers take this into consideration for the next games.

  • Three hours, three dollars lost May 4, 2018

    By JonnyMFBravo
    I just got done playing this game, and said “I can’t believe I just spent that much time on that nonsense.” Granted— the imagery is really cool, and the story is creepy and fun. I experienced zero glitches or bugs, and some of the puzzles were fun. I love a good mental challenge. BUT, many of the puzzles just sucked. Without giving too much away, there are puzzles that are easy to solve but require you to walk back and forth across the entire map. There are puzzles that require you to just click around the entire screen (and move items to VERY SPECIFIC places) just to see what happens. And there are more than a few puzzles that will require you to look them up online, or else spend countless hours just trying to figure out what the eff these people are trying to get you to do. Save your money and time. It’s a shame, because this game was fun and well-made while it was progressing, but obnoxious at a lot of sticking points. I shouldn’t have to look up walkthroughs to figure out what a game is even trying to get me to do.

  • Holy cow. Literally worst game I’ve ever played. Sep 4, 2018

    By Kehebeisbsj
    “Game” is nearly unplayable. Dull, ugly art (same monotone dude voices every weird cardboard character, monotonously. He also rips off the Twin Peaks Black Lodge method of backward-forward recording. There are like two things to interact with and like three bare “settings”); story makes no sense (there’s a leech in grandma’s nose? I pour wine into the goat’s bucket, which he then drinks? There’s a random totem pole/leech-juicer that somehow gives you a key?); gameplay is virtually nonexistent (there’s a whole lot of nothing while guess what your next nonsensical convoluted move has to be). It was so bad I couldn’t get through the second “chapter”. It all strongly feels like an underdeveloped “apps 101” class project that the creator was too high to do effectively. Holy cow. This thing is so bad. I want to save others from wasting money on it. I would give it zero stars if I could.

  • Only play if you’re ready to get totally hooked Sep 13, 2018

    By schchgfth
    I have never written a review for ANY app or game, but I have to make an exception. Rusty Lake is one of the coolest and most immersive worlds I’ve entered in video games. A true return to the early 2000’s style of point and click(my favorite games as a kid) mixed with original animation and modern storytelling. Not only that- the game is truly difficult, but in a way that makes sense all the way through. Once I finished this game, I was so hooked I immediately downloaded another. I lost a few days playing all of the games in an attempt to piece together the whole story. Every one, even the beginner ones when the production value isn’t quite as polished, are crazy addicting and so fun to play. I had a great time and don’t regret one moment spent playing them. They are, in a word, amazing.

  • Grotesque and Macabre puzzles Aug 29, 2018

    By RoninOtter
    Imagine if Myst was designed by the creator of Salad Fingers. You would have this game. Dark, twisted and sometimes nauseating, the game is definitely on the fringes of what might be considered “fun,” but somehow manages to hold onto a measure of charm throughout. The game’s brain teasers tend to be pretty easy for the most part, as the majority of them have fairly simple logic that’s easy to work out with persistence. A few are genuinely tough, and others are far enough out of left field that they will take a little while to figure out just on their oddness alone. Still, it kept me busy for a couple hours which is easily worth the reasonable pricetag. NOTE: Don’t buy it if you don’t like leeches, bodily fluids, cartoon vivisection, or being responsible for the deaths of cute little animals. This game is pretty gross at times, and that was a bit off-putting to me, but your mileage may vary. However that hasn’t stopped me from wanting to buy another one. I liked the storytelling, despite how oppressively dark it is, so I’m encouraged to check out more from the title. My only objective complaints: -the navigation through the woods is cumbersome and can be a factor that slows down progress unneccessarily -the voice acting leaves *much* to be desired (however, Grandma showing up in random places and sounding like a man legitimately made me laugh aloud.)

    Great game. Some of the puzzles were kind of tedious or too amiguous. I had to look up walkthrus a few times. However, overall the game was engaging and most of the puzzles just require some thought and exploration. I don't regret buying it.

  • Nice puzzler for a day... Feb 26, 2018

    By Maestro Mitch
    This is a well constructed game that doesn’t have too many impossible puzzles. Most everything you can figure out with a few minutes of playing around. Some of the puzzles have very clever layers of difficulty. Click everything and consider minute details if a solution isn’t immediately apparent. Art design and music are well done and VO work adds to the creepyness... my only content complaint is that the creepiness depends on some grossing out events that had me going “Really?” in some parts. Overall, well done however. I will look for more offerings from this developer. I may go again to gain more achievements, the game doesn’t make it clear that achievements are there to be earned.

  • Great games! Dec 30, 2018

    By AlbatrossQ
    Paradise is another solid entry in the Rusty Lake series. Puzzles vary widely - while often you’ll be looking for lock combinations, the ways you’ll find them really run the gamut. I was consistently surprised. Difficulty varies - you'll probably get stuck a few times - but it never feels impossible. The Rusty Lake games are well balanced. It's worth noting that a lot of iOS point and clicks have unwieldy interfaces - Rusty Lake does a great job avoiding that. You never feel bogged down by the UI. My only real issue with these games is the sound. I’m sorry to be critical - they’re a small studio! - but, for me, the voice acting is a distracting part of an otherwise good series. They could also probably use trigger warnings (ie, images of self harm) across the board. Tread with caution if you are sensitive to this kind of imagery. Overall, though, these are really nice, super varied games with creative puzzles - if you're into ye olde pointe and clicke adventures or escape rooms, you'll probably like this series.

    Its okay. 10 levels, same map. Not a lot of things to click on....feels like a lot of guessing fetch quests strung together. A couple bugs, like audio issues playing over and over forcing player to restart game. Relatively easy gameplay....dont understand all the 5 star reviews....its not a perfect game and especially for the $$$

    Can't move forward....stuck on Plague 7....Hail....because I am unable to get the branch off the tree no matter how many times I use the snow globe. I have watched the walkthrough. You are supposed to select the snowglobe and then click the branch and snowballs fall and knock the brach down. Nothing happens. Snowballs fall but branch stays. I have also reset the level and replayed, no luck. And I uninstalled/reinstalled....no luck

  • Beautiful but respect the age rec Aug 19, 2018

    By TLT1994
    As others mentioned, the game is intriguing and beautiful. However, there are some disturbing aspects that are worth knowing about before playing, especially if the player is a child or sensitive adult. You will need to kill and bait animals and tolerate some creepy absurdity as you navigate through levels. Parental guidance and common sense are recommended. I played each level before my child and then I played it with her, so I knew when/how to monitor her exposure. This was an effective way to address our feelings and keep her from seeing the more disturbing imagery (eg, man-fly killing rabbit and removing heart). Otherwise it's a fascinating game.
