Disturbing Content / Subpar Format

I’ve played every game in the Rusty Lake series. This one just went too far. I felt gross playing it, to be honest. Also, the shorter, multi-level format made the gameplay feel too easy.

Puzzles Were Ok; Save Feature Not Reliable

The puzzles were overall good, but some were impossible to get on your own. And the story line was too gruesome (I play to escape; this had too much gory drama). I sure would not recommend it for a child. But one of the most frustrating parts was the fact that each episode failed to save, so you had to do the puzzles all over. Try the latest Rusty Lake; it was much better.
