Rusty Lake Paradise App Reviews

0 add

Enjoyed thoroughly, BUT...

First, I want to say thank you to the hardworking developers that have allowed me to enjoy countless hours of fun, creative thinking, a little frustration at times, but overall a truly enjoyable gaming experience. I first completed all of the FREE cube escape games and loved every single one. I don’t usually spend money on games but I had to for Rusty Lake because I knew the type of game it was going to be and it didn’t disappoint. Definitely worth the money. But - in my opinion, and I see others have felt the same, some of the mini games and puzzles were either too easy or just plain hard and I had to consult the walkthrough. My favorite part of the game are the mini games and I kept waiting for that really fun one like all the cube escape ones had. But anyway, I love the game, love the whole Rusty Lake story, and look forward to buying the next one (which I’m gonna do right now). Again, if you are looking for a fun and exciting game that will keep you engrossed for hours - this is it. I suggest trying some or ALL of the FREE Rusty Lake cube escape games first so you can get the feel for what kind of game it is and how to play it because it’s unlike any game out there. Thanks for reading!!

If you like the other Rusty Lake games, do NOT DOWNLOAD THIS

A waste of money, not similar to the other Rusty Lake games. This game lacks the puzzles that the other ones do, replacing it with mindless wandering around without any challenge. 0/5 Stars. Attempted to get a refund 5 min after beginning to play.


I never bought a game in my life and I bought this. So worth it. Puzzles weren’t too hard and if they are you can use a walkthrough. I was stuck on the bones for about a month but I was over thinking it came back to it and it was easy

I need more Rusty Lake

Loved it, the beautiful graphics and the sheer creepiness is in all Rusty Lake glory. Could do less with certain puzzles, but great game and cool story.

Intriguing and captivating

I don’t even like playing games on my phone, but I love puzzles, detective stories, and mysteries, and Rusty Lake is just mysterious enough to intrigue me! I’ve solved every one, and cannot wait for more! When???!!!!!!!


Absolutely wonderful game! Hints are provided during the walkthrough if you get stuck. Can’t wait to play the remaining games.


Not a fan.

Omg, sick

The game isn't just wonderfully weird. It's so bizarre with a Wickerman feel (original, not Nicholas Cage). Wonderful puzzles, very challenging.


Very nice game !!

It’s a masterpiece.

Brilliant and epically twisted challenges and puzzles. Very satisfying.

Among the best

I have 75 games on my iPhone but this ones got to be the best. I didn’t just get this app today either, I’ve had it for about 6 weeks. It doesn’t get old the 2nd or 3rd time through.

4.5 Stars

My favorite game! 10/10 recommend. If I could give this 4.5 stars I would, I enjoyed everything about the game except I thought the ending could have been a little better, i felt like it could have either been weirder or more explanatory. It just wasn’t satisfying.

Awesome GAME!!!

When I first started playing this game I thought it was going to be lame...but once I got into it, I love it. I love the challenge and the suspense I am going to play it over it

Great fun...until...

The puzzles are great fun and super engaging...until I got to the middle of plague 9 when the app crashed and reset all my progress for the entire game. Ugh.

strongly recommend

Great game! I am a big fan of Rusty Lake! All of the previous ones are fantastic and the new one is the most difficult but the best! I am so thankful to the game designers for their smartness and endeavors, that provide me with such a wonderful experiences!

If David Lynch made a video game...

This game is amazing. Never once before have I been so drawn into the world of a cell phone game. It plays out like a film in which you are the main character. It really pushes your mind to get past all the puzzles, but the clues are there. Hard to find the words to describe the experience. Incredible job.

Not stupid, just cant make it work!

I landed on the deer-hunter island. Found all the parts, but NOTHING would open the box. Watched walkthroughs. No help. Stuck at level one. I’m better than this. $2.99 down the drain.


This is the first game I download. I really loved it! Lynchian story, keep you engaged, and well done!

Ice skating

I tried over and over but I couldn’t finish because of the stupid ice skating! I got her to hit all for poles to crack the ice. And even with the walkthrough it was no help!!! I now each level is supposed to be harder but come on after she skates over all of them she is still not coming

So absorbing

Lately I was into ‘the silent age’ kinda games and I saw ‘rusty lake paradise’. First I loved the drawing style then little things really got me, like eerie shadow woman, twinpeaks-like voice, pagan motives. Some little puzzles were a little bit irritating, but I loved playing this game. Also after all the game level was not so easy, but not impossible to solve. Thank you 😇

Good game!

Very creepy. Very cool. Beautiful art and interesting themes. Some of the puzzles were too difficult to solve on my own but that just makes it a better game.


I enjoyed half of the game, but the other half is just disgusting. I don’t find human poop, green booger coming out from old lady, and giant fly amusing at all. Deleted.

Great game!


Crazy good! Loved it!!!

Great great game. Needed a couple hints along the way and the help was spot on.

I almost never review apps...

But I had to this time. This game is so wonderfully creepy and dark and bizarre! It’s challenging without being completely frustrating. I’m looking forward to trying the other Rusty Lake games out after I finish this one!

Weird but derivative and simplistic

The game play is different, I’ll give it that, but the only way you engage with the UI is by tapping a million times based on clues from riddles with frankly arbitrary logic. Plus the narrative is an uncreative cross between David Lynch ripoffs, Wicker Man and the Plagues of Egypt. I really wanted it to be better but it just fell short. The end of the game was pretty predictable and disappointing, but the middle sections weren’t all bad and provided some entertainment.


This game and all the others by Rusty lake are amazing, and I’ve played them all. Please make a new game soon!

I love Rusty Lake games more than anything

I’m not joking. It’s my favorite brand of games. I absolutely adore every single one of them. I’ve played all of them to date whether it be on my laptop or phone. I’m obsessed. I will pay good money for more games. Please. Please, make more games. They’re unlike any other games I’ve ever played. Imaginative, artsy, dark, weird, creepy, fun, interesting, mind-twisting. Amazing.

Great fun

Spooky puzzle solver. A little frustrating at times but if I just stepped back and slept on it I could usually figure out the next step. There are walkthroughs available if you are impatient! I was surprised to learn that I only found about 1/2 of the ‘achievements’ when I finished! Great use of my money. Have fun!

Not up to Rusty Lake usual quality

I’ve enjoyed playing the Rusty Lake games and their originality. I decided to pay for this game since the others were free and I owed them that much. I didn’t feel like this was worth the money though. I got tired of traversing the same paths over and over. And I really got tired of having to play several of the games multiple times in a row to progress. That’s just a time waster. There are no in game hints - just a link to the walkthrough.

Wonderfully creepy....

Loves this game! It’s so weird and cool, I couldn’t get enough of the story

Pretty good!

The game is great, and I was at the last plague before everything reset. I had reset the level a few minutes before because I messed up on the arrow, and then I did it again so I pressed reset. It reset everything. I’m sad, of course. But four stars from me!

Love rusty lake!!

I absolutely love the rusty lake games. All of them!! They’re challenging and strange and I love the somewhat creepy strangeness of the games! I hope they come out with a lot more because I’ve played and beat them all (the cube games too)!!!

Three hours, three dollars lost

I just got done playing this game, and said “I can’t believe I just spent that much time on that nonsense.” Granted— the imagery is really cool, and the story is creepy and fun. I experienced zero glitches or bugs, and some of the puzzles were fun. I love a good mental challenge. BUT, many of the puzzles just sucked. Without giving too much away, there are puzzles that are easy to solve but require you to walk back and forth across the entire map. There are puzzles that require you to just click around the entire screen (and move items to VERY SPECIFIC places) just to see what happens. And there are more than a few puzzles that will require you to look them up online, or else spend countless hours just trying to figure out what the eff these people are trying to get you to do. Save your money and time. It’s a shame, because this game was fun and well-made while it was progressing, but obnoxious at a lot of sticking points. I shouldn’t have to look up walkthroughs to figure out what a game is even trying to get me to do.


I really enjoyed playing this game but absolutely hated the killing of the animals and stabbing them and removing their hearts and such. Very disturbing. I would have given given it five stars otherwise but the fact that they encourage and find animal abuse and death to be fun and entertaining caused me to rate this game low. I would much rather kill adult humans in a game then animals so maybe the next game they can improve in this area.

Creepy and Fun

Looks awesome and I enjoyed all the puzzles. Just challenging enough to make it interesting but not so bad you don’t get to unravel an excellent story. Love it!

Wasted money.

I can’t even get past the first plague. I’ve reset the game, uninstalled it, reinstalled it and nothing happens when you put the leech in the tikis mouth. Disappointed, looked like an interesting game.

Ok puzzle game

Pretty short for the money.

Such. A. Good. Game.

I play a lot of story puzzle games and this one has been by far one of my favorite. I love the odd story line and the simple but good graphics. The puzzles aren’t insanely hard but some aren’t too easy either. Worth the $3.

Best game 4ever!

Just purchase it! Totally worth!

Seriously can’t brag on the Rusty Lake games enough

I absolutely adore every single game from this developer. The puzzles in this one are tough, but still fun to solve and the story is awesome. I love how the developer intertwines all their games through a common plot and original characters.

Totally weird and awesome!!!

Loved it!

Challenging and fun

I had to get hep on a few levels but I really enjoyed the challenge.

You'll get sucked in

Fun, clever, user friendly. Easy to pick up and get right to where you left off. Creative puzzles. I rather enjoyed and look forward to more.


This game. This game. This game is a masterpiece. The series is a masterpiece. The plot, the art, the music, and especially the gameplay all merge together to create a stunning atmosphere. I can’t understand why people call it “macabre,” it really isn’t that dark to me. However, that might just be desensitization at work. One of my favorite series ever, keep up the good work!

Love This Game

This game and all others from the Rusty Lake developers are addictive and amazing adventures. The graphics, storylines, and puzzles are terrific. I can’t wait for the next one to come out!

Macabre but logical

To say this game is macabre is an understatement. If you can get by cutting open animals & people to progress and snot & blood in almost every chapter this is the game for you. Very logical to play but now that I am on the 7th plague I am finding bit a bit boring.

I love this series!!

A few months ago I discovered and obsessively played through the previous games in this series and got hooked on the puzzles and eerie storyline. This new installment kept that obsession going! I love seeing this story unfold and I have so many more questions now! The puzzles in Paradise are even better than others, and I can’t wait to see how they continue!


Started with the Cube Escape series. I was blown away. I decided to purchase all 3 of the paid apps by Rusty Lake. If you like creepy, challenging, thought provoking puzzle games, these are for you. Do not hesitate to purchase this. I can’t wait for the next game. Keep up the good work guys. Nothing out there compares to these games. Thank you.

Was good but there is a bug

In the hail section, I can’t get the twig off the tree. I use the snow globe, which emits hail to hit the twig, but it just keeps resetting. Very frustrating and useless at this point. Norm
