  • " The Cube Escape formula is familiar to others in the series, and others in the genre, but that doesn’t stop Cube Escape: Theater from being an engaging experience. The puzzle style uses similar mechanics, but each puzzle is still a nicely crafted challenge that is neat to see take shape towards a solution. The storyline in Theater presents a familiar cast of characters, but in an all new situation for continued intrigue that can also act as a stand along story. The best part of all of these games is that they can be played as one time experiences, but you gain extra knowledge from the overall series. Cube Escape: Theater is only about an hour at most, but you do lose track of time as you become immersed in the puzzles and story."
    - Trevor Sheridan, AppleNApps
  • " I've talked repeatedly about how much I enjoy the eeriness of Rusty Lake's Cube Escape series, and the just-released Cube Escape: Theater [Free] continues along the same vein, which is nothing but good news to me. Cube Escape: Theater is the eighth in the Cube Escape series and continues from where Cube Escape Birthday [Free] left off. The opening scene of the trailer with the red curtains reminded me a lot of the famous giant scene in David Lynch's Twin Peaks (one of my all-time favorite shows), although the tone of this trailer is less threatening and more inquisitive - though no less peculiar and with an uncanny tone running through."
    - Tasos Lazarides, TouchArcade
  • " If it's weird, unsettling, and, yes, makes you jump a little bit, then you know all is right with the world and you're playing a Rusty Lake game. Cube Escape: Theater proves that despite the lengthy library in the series, the developers are still coming up with creative ways to play with puzzles and recurring story themes. If you haven't played the other Cube Escape games, then you're likely going to be lost as to any conceivable plot here... while still enjoyable solely as an abstract, mind-warping puzzle, Theater makes no effort to explain anything that's going on to newcomers, though, let's face it, some of the regulars are still probably a little pleasantly befuddled by now too. One of the series' weak points has always been how precarious it teeters on the line between "fun and ambiguously creative" and "just plain unintuitive" when it comes to the otherworldly logic that needs to be applied to some puzzles. Theater is a little better about stringing hints and subtle direction throughout than some of its predecessors, but you'll still be mystified from time to time as you try to figure out either what the game wants from you, or simply how to achieve it. It's a stylish game, of course, and beautiful in a morbid sort of way, and jump scares are less used in favour of striking imagery, though still present depending on your tolerance. It ends with a "to be continued", however, so don't expect this strange ride we're on to come to a conclusion just yet."
