  • Another brilliant piece of storytelling by the twisted minds at rusty lake Feb 27, 2017

    By Dubs1
    The puzzles are more compact this time around, but it doesn't make them any easier - they always seem to find the perfect balance of challenging and thought provoking very nicely. The story adds so much information to the rusty lake series which I loved every moment of...this one is probable less scary, but it can be very disturbing at times which I always love. The story ties a lot together from their previous games, so recommend playing those first and you will understand this so much better and give you that 'ooohhhh - no way!' factor/reaction. Plus, once you 'beat' the game there's extra secrets/content with some REALLY challenging puzzles, but it's always satisfying and worth it...plus these guys are nice enough to put a link in the game right to a walkthrough if you ever get stuck...another brilliant story told rusty lake style, and I can't wait for their next game in the series which they say will be out sometime soon!

    I really enjoyed this. I've been playing these games in what I think is the right order, but this one stood out because of the variety and sense of scope. Most of the puzzles felt solvable without any outside help apart from perhaps the very end! Very twisted but that's what to expect from this developer...

    I’ve played most of the rusty lake games and this one is my favorite so far. I plan on buying all the rest of their games after this. I see people putting these games down and I just don’t get it. Everything about the games is, at the very least, more interesting than most other games of this genre. Great stories, artwork, puzzles, etc. Also, thanks a lot to the developers. It’s really good of you to have put out so many great (and 100% free) games. I respect that a lot and will continue to support you in the future because of that fact. I don’t mind paying, though. I’ve played for free for a long time now and I appreciate that. The games are fantastic. If you have doubts about buying the games, there’re plenty to try out for free to get the feel of how the mechanics work. And not just 1 or 2 levels, full games. That’s a rarity anymore.

    Rusty Lake games never disappoint. They're all well paced with puzzles that are ingenious enough to engage - though I cheated using the walkthroughs a couple of times. I'm looking forward to their next, I have played them all.

    In all fairness I’m writing this review before having finished “Roots.” I am a little over halfway through, and am parceling out the remaining chapters like pillow mints, one or two a day to make the experience last - and that ain’t easy, kid. “Roots” has everything...and more. Superb puzzles that feel organic in moving the story along. And what a story - replete with well-crafted characters whose motives and emotions are so bizarrely human. And all achieved without dialogue, only through unique artwork and audio effects. Perhaps it is inaccurate to think of “Roots,” (or any of the Cube escapes) as devastatingly dark comedy, but I do chuckle while I shudder. And the gleeful anticipation I had before playing this game could’ve led to disappointment. But I really should know better than to worry about a letdown when Rusty Lake’s involved. Silly me.

  • Love the game... if I could only play it. May 16, 2018

    By Grey_Lyn
    I absolutely love this game. However, I can’t get into my “settings”, without the screen turning black and the app crashing. I can’t do anything, I.e let my screen go into sleep mode, look at another app, etc) without the game crashing. Once I start the game back up, it’s wiped clean. Last night I was at puzzle 24, I believe, pushed through the hours of the night to finish it (in fear of it losing all my save files).. only for it to randomly crash on its own and start me from the beginning.. all. Over. Again. If it would allow ppl to save their progress and not wipe it whenever it wants, I would give it 5 stars. Because it’s an amazing game.. but I can’t keep restarting the same game over and over again and dish out hours upon hours of redos.

    I played a lot of Rusty Lake quest series and this is by far my least favourite one. Since it's a paid game I thought it would be even greater than the rest, but I found it way worse. Each episode was was short, no twists, mostly point and click without thinking, nothing you'd expect from them. Any one of their free games is more exciting and elaborate. I'd like to support the developer for more great content, but not with this. Would not recommend buying and honestly wish I'd get a refund 😑

    Ominous feeling and vibes through the game, I've probably played all the games int the wrong order, but this was the real champ, I had to consult the walkthrough many times as I'm quite lazy and get annoyed when I'm stuck. But I like the game very much! Controls could be better..

    I really enjoyed the game, played it all on one go, with the help of some walkthrough along the way. However, although I watched the walkthrough for the final one, it doesn't make sense to me. *SPOILER* The clues are clear, but when it comes to entering the numbers, it seems there are some flaws in the logic of it.

    Loses a star for final puzzle. They really screwed that one up. They need to update the game to fix that. Otherwise a pretty decent game

    Nice quirky game with a good feel, I read some reviews before hand its got a homley feel and game is quite easy to play the puzzles are quite simple the only reason for four stars is that I think it will be quite sort but worth the effort and money for more like this

  • STRANGE Dec 21, 2016

    By DelleeComeOn
    Many conflicting feelings after completing this game. I have to say after playing the whole thing, I found the game itself enjoyable, but the story disturbing. It didn't bother me though, it was just sometimes too depressing and unpleasant. But it might bother others. The game itself was okay, as it was long and it did in fact have a story. But I found the puzzles, for the most part, too easy. Definitely not as good as the Cube Escape series. The Cube Escapes were more surreal, scary (not just disturbing), and had harder to solve puzzles that were more fun. Oh well, I guess you can't get everything in one game.

  • Escape the room type game, eh. May 11, 2019

    By Ncadmin
    At the heart of this game is Escape the Room type puzzles. It’s probably the best of them if you like those games. I particularly don’t. It’s strong points are that it’s got a back drop macabre storyline where the story does move forward in the background as you proceed and while many of the puzzles are different than most and more interesting, it’s still ridden with click-fest mentality bordering on ridiculous room entities such as wood planks that slide up and down a window but aren’t removable but they slide freely as if they’re magically there. You also have puzzles where you need a combination and all you have to do is click some wall picture to get it. To me, that’s not a puzzle, it’s a click-fest. Some are more clever than that but the pattern is there. Escape fans will delight while old-time adventure gamers will turn their noses.
