  • " Rusty Lake has been enchanting players with its odd (in a good way) sensibility and approach to puzzle games, and now the developer is ready to release another game, Cube Escape: The Cave. I know that for most of you, the name Rusty Lake is enough to make you go and grab the game, but for those who haven't played a Cube Escape game yet, this series of puzzle and escape room games has great puzzles to solve but, more importantly for me, a lovely sense of dread that you can't easily replicate. "
    - Tasos Lazarides, TouchArcade
  • " Long-time fans of the series will find Cube Escape: The Cave a worthy entry, expanding upon elements of the overarching narrative. A less coherent story and confusing puzzles can frustrate, but overall polish and creepy atmosphere helps to elevate The Cave above those aspects."
    - Christian Valentin, Pocket Gamer
  • " Cube Escape: The Cave is the ninth entry in the Cube Escape series and the eleventh game set in the Rusty Lake universe. Like its predecessors, The Cave offers a steady stream of challenging escape the room puzzles presented in a surreal yet still matter-of-fact setting."
    - Jillian Werner, GameZebo
  • " De puzzels van The Cave zitten goed in elkaar, wat het al de moeite waard maakt om te spelen. Wat de Cube Escape-serie echter zo bijzonder maakt, is de onheilspellende sfeer die continu aanwezig is. De combinatie van de muziek en de grimmige omgevingen zorgen ervoor dat je altijd op je hoede bent, zonder dat je jezelf druk hoeft te maken om schrikmomenten."
    - Lars Paymans, Iphoned.nl
  • " App van de week Cube Escape: The Cave heeft een lekker tempo met korte puzzels die samen weer een groter geheel vormen, en heeft dankzij zijn specifieke tekenstijl en mysterieuze muziek steeds een onheilspellende, drukkende sfeer."
    - Floris Poort, Nu.nl
  • " Cube Escape: The Cave takes place at an as-yet unexplored area of Rusty Lake. Players of the previous games will recognize the point-and-click adventure style. There’s all-new hand-drawn artwork that you can explore, too. Your time will dive deeper into the “detectives” storyline as well as the over-arching plot of the Cube Escape games as a whole. It’s a ton of fun to see items and characters from the other games as they reprise their roles in a brand new setting with fresh puzzles."
    - Rob LeFebvre, AppAdvice
