REVIEW: Cube Escape: The Lake (game)

Guess who’s been playing lots of Cube Escape games in the past week? Me, that’s who.

Most of the games are really short, and all of them are free. From the look of things, they can be played in any order, although there’s some serious crossover between some of them. They’re all weird, and some are darker than others. I’m currently playing one where you can die if you don’t solve certain puzzles fast enough (Cube Escape: Case 23), but most of them allow you to complete the puzzles at your own pace.

Anyway, be prepared for lots of short reviews. Here’s the first one I played: Cube Escape: The Lake.

In this game, you’re in an abandoned cabin on an island in Rusty Lake. All you have is a knife, a fishing rod, and some other items.

This was one of the weaker entries in the Cube Escape/Rusty Lake series. I couldn’t figure out the logic behind the safe combination puzzle. I was only able to get through it with a walkthrough. The mirror clue was fairly helpful, but beyond that I couldn’t figure out why the safe combination was what it ended up being. The ending was very sudden and didn’t add much to the overall Rusty Lake story, as far as I could tell.
