Creepy, challenging, awesome!

I LOVE puzzles, escape rooms, all things requiring use of my brain. I recently discovered escape room apps (I know, where have I been the last decade) and although I truly don’t have time to fit one more thing into my life... well, let’s just say sleep has suffered. My kids, 5 and 8, and I now play at least 1 “room” before their bedtime story, so I have downloaded 15-20 apps. Most are easy enough my kids can do 90% on their own, and some are so insanely void of any challenge that “free” is more than they are worth! I have played a few without the kids, because they require more adult help than is fun for a team effort. Even those didn’t take very long to finish.

That all said, this game has a lot of challenges packed into one game/room, some had me STUCK for a bit... running in circles over and over, trying to figure out what the HECK was I missing?! The mixed media aspect made it especially interesting, and it was pretty creepy. I don’t like creepy, but this game was really fun. My favorite of this kind so far. This is only 1 of 2 I’ve played so far, that I would actually pay for! I can’t wait to check out some of their others. Thanks so much!

Amazing series.

If you have any doubts about buying this game or any others in the series, I can tell you it’s worth it. Seeing the developers succeed and have these very well executed finished products has been a treat. The mini movie they produced to go along with the game is even free, and it’s amazing how they got everything to scale and found spot on actors. The dedication the devs show to the mini movie is the same dedication they show to the games. That dedication is something you don’t see every day. I’ll follow the content they produce as they continue to bring out piece after piece of this great story series. I wish the developers all success and hope they keep making great things for a long, long time.
You’ll definitely want to play them all and uncover the mysteries of Cube Escape. This one is just as quality as all the others, and I highly recommend playing. Challenging, but not overly so. A point and click game where you’ll have to think as you play, but not something infuriating. Good luck solving the mysteries!

Greatest series of phone games I’ve ever played

I don’t normally write reviews, but in case anybody was having doubts about purchasing this game, or any of the other paid games that Rusty Lake has come out with, DO IT. As a huge fan of the cube escape series I didn’t hesitate for a second to purchase the rusty lake games. I preordered Paradox. Let that sink in. I loved these games so much that I preordered a phone app. There has not been a finer line of games to hit the App Store since Smart phones have been around. The short film that they made to go along with this latest game is absolutely superb as well. The developers of this entire series deserve more recognition than I could ever give. I will recommend this string of games to friends, family, acquaintances, and anybody who takes the time to listen to me blather on about this series.

As long as these developers produce games, I will support every single thing that they put out, regardless of whether or not they deviate from the original games and take a new route.
