Another brilliant piece of storytelling by the twisted minds at rusty lake

The puzzles are more compact this time around, but it doesn't make them any easier - they always seem to find the perfect balance of challenging and thought provoking very nicely. The story adds so much information to the rusty lake series which I loved every moment of...this one is probable less scary, but it can be very disturbing at times which I always love. The story ties a lot together from their previous games, so recommend playing those first and you will understand this so much better and give you that 'ooohhhh - no way!' factor/reaction. Plus, once you 'beat' the game there's extra secrets/content with some REALLY challenging puzzles, but it's always satisfying and worth these guys are nice enough to put a link in the game right to a walkthrough if you ever get stuck...another brilliant story told rusty lake style, and I can't wait for their next game in the series which they say will be out sometime soon!

From a Cube Escape Enthusiast...

This game is worth every penny. It is much longer than RL's other pay to play: Hotel. This was charming, dark, and definitely added some interesting bits to the Rusty Lake lore. It was creepy but not scary, and the puzzles were interesting. I wish that it would've been a little scarier, but it did not ruin the experience. My only real complaint is that when you do the bonus content afterward, you get nothing for it. I was under the impression that collecting the medals would get me some lore but it didn't give me anything.
I still consider this game money well spent, and I recommend playing the Cube Escape games as well.

Unique & Intentional

I've played nearly every escape game the App Store has to offer, including the wretched 'hidden object' ones.... The Rusty Lake/Cube Escape collection is by far the most thought provoking. I love that there is an actual storyline that ties them all together. I want a game that will bend my brain without being impossible and for that, this one is a winner! I have never payed for a game, but after playing all the Cube Escape games, I couldn't NOT see what Roots was all about. Money well spent. The unique characters and well thought out, yet, simplistic design made the game extremely enjoyable. Can't wait to see what you guys do next!
