Cube Escape: Harvey’s Box: Complete Walkthrough Guide

Cube Escape: Harvey’s Box
By: LoyaltyGame B.V. (Rusty Lake)


This is a complete step-by-step walkthrough guide with hints, tips, solutions and answers for the fourth Rusty Lake game, Cube Escape: Harvey’s Box. Feel free to ask for extra help in the comments section.


1. Pick up the spoon and tape.


2. Turn right. Pick up the tape from the dominoes. Solve the dominoes puzzles and then take the piece of paper to get a clue.




3. Turn right. Open the two matchboxes to get a match and another piece of tape. Strike the match against the closed matchbox to light it.



4. Look behind the fruit for another piece of tape.


5. Turn right (or just go back from the fruit) and take the safety pin. Then add all the pieces of tape to the ones on the wall. You now have a complete music sheet.



6. Looks like we now have to use the music sheet to figure out how to play music on the comb. The way I did it was I first played every note once to see what it looked like. Then I took a screenshot of that. I then compared that to the song sheet and matched them up to get BBDDBB#GABDBA#GA. Press the comb in that order to get a silver key.


7. Use the silver key to unlock the locked box. Take the knife, cigar and paper with a clue on it.



8. Go back to the jar of fireflies and use the knife to open the jar. Tap on the jar again and they’ll fly out onto the wall. You now have to use the clue to solve the puzzle. It says:

Every row and column must have three flies and three larvae. You can never have three of the same in a row. So it should look like the photo below. Then take the three fireflies that light up.


9. Go back to the fruit. Tap the holes so the thorns sticking out of it match the drawing on the pieces of tape. Then use the knife to cut it open. Look inside and keep tapping until you find a box. Open the box and you’ll find yourself back in the same box as before. But some things have changed.




10. Something is tearing a hole in the box. Help it out by using the knife on that spot. A pigeon will poke its head through! Tapping it makes musical notes come from its mouth. Tap it five times and pay attention to the five different notes that it sings.


11. Turn back to the wine glass and fish. There’s now a crow, too. Match the crow and fish to the drawing you found and put the cigar in the fish’s mouth. If you haven’t lit the match yet, strike it against the matchboxes. Then use it to light the cigar.

12. Now, you need to mimic the notes the pigeon sang. Tap lower on the wine glass to fill it or empty it a bit. Each level of wine will make a different sound when you click the top of the glass with the spoon. Do it in the order shown below and everything will vibrate.






13. Turn and find a rope hanging from the top, with the pigeon staring at you nearby. Place the safety pin in the two holes in the wall, then pull the rope down to the safety pin to tie it to it.


14. Look up at the top of the box. A dark figure will appear. To complete the game, you need to quickly use all three fireflies on him. Then tap the black cube!



Congratulations! You escaped Harvey’s Box! Try the next game in the series, Cube Escape: Case 23.

    How to put wine in glass??

    1. Mariusz

      Hi. I’m interested too because tapping on the wine glass doesn’t fill it.

      1. Mariusz

        Ok, got it. First you need to put crow and fish (together with lighting up the cigar) in their positions.

    2. Brittany

      Make sure the fish and the crow are in position, (with cigar lit) then a sound will be heard (so you know you did it correctly) if you touch the stem of the glass it should fill you keep clicking it to make the wine go up (there is no way to go back down until you keep clicking up) then use the spoon above the top line to make the sound.

      1. Alastair

        Can you please explain in more detail? They match the paper and the guide but nothing is happening. Literally every comment here makes no sense because everyone is forgetting the important details

        1. claude

          Hi sorry for late reply, but it took ages for me to figure it out!! You can change the fish’s leg position. Make sure that matches up and it should work

    3. Kim

      Make sure crow’s head is in the right position.

  2. Molly

    For some reason, no matter what device I play this game on, the string will not come down. Anyone else have this issue? Won’t work on Android or desktop.

    1. chris

      Drag it

    2. SomeRandomRustyLaker

      First you want to pin the safety pin on the box, then drag the rope down an it’ll tie itself to the pin.

      1. Alastair

        What box??? Where?????

      2. Maya Ig

      1. A_person

        You need to have the fireflies equipped; it won’t work if you don’t have them equipped

  7. Fae

    Thanks for your help, really useful. The ending of the game gave me a heart attack though! So scary!

  8. Lia

    What piece of tape do you use to help you cut the fruit?? I can’t figure it out

    1. harvey weinstein

      fish and chip and nobbin in the rain

  9. Camille Riz

    Bonjour, je n’ai pas le poison dans le verre mais j’ai fait le reste, comment faire?

    1. Stacy M

      Tapotez simplement sur le corps du verre et assurez-vous que la cuill╬ô├╢┬úΓö¼ΓöÉre n’est pas s╬ô├╢┬ú╬ô├«├ëlectionn╬ô├╢┬ú╬ô├«├ëe. Aussi d╬ô├╢┬ú╬ô├«├ësol╬ô├╢┬ú╬ô├«├ë si cela n’a pas de sens, j’utilise un traducteur.

      1. Andy Gordon

        Nothing happens when I tap the glass, has anyone had this problem and fixed it?

        1. Small_Keeby

          Did you tap on it with the knife?

  10. Timmy

    So I already went in the fruit until I found this and I need to get back in there but it keeps saying it locked and I don’t want to restart it

    1. Sandra

      had the same problem, it let me get out of the fruit without using the knife but now its locked

    2. Sandra

      just realized you can take the knife to the side of the box, you don’t need to get anything from inside the fruit you just have to go through it I guess

  11. Ann Known

    How do you get B# if its not on the comb?

    1. Waylon

      This one is written a little confusingly. It’s for the NEXT note, I believe (without scrolling back up) it was G#

  12. Z

    ItΓÇÖs #g

  13. Red

    Once you “unlock” the fruit by having the thorns at the correct lengths (L-R: none, long, long, short), you can open the fruit by using the spoon, if you don’t have the knife yet.
    You only get to go through once, regardless of which implement you use to open it, so enjoy the trip!

  14. Adasyn

    Okay so I’m stuck on the cup with wine. After you make the first 4 notes is it supposed to fill back up automatically like cause if I do all 5 like the photos and then I go where the rope is it isn’t there what am I doing wrong

    1. Adasyn

      Also how is a fruit potato thing locked

  15. Luminka

    I’m stuck on the fruit. I could open it without using any tools, but now i can’t get past it no matter what i do. Tried clicking the fruit multiple times. I’m playing on a website, so that might be the problem. Googled it and it seems like no one else had this problem.

    1. A_person

      You don’t have to open it again, there is nothing more you need from it

  16. Kiteo

    Quickest ending ever to a game. While quickly tapping with the fireflies, I saw the flash of a cube as I tapped and then The End; I probably would have made that a bit differently.

  17. Emily

    Nothing is happening when I click on the glass with the spoon what do I do

  18. Michael

    You have to put the crow’s head straight, with his right arm (the one on your left) touching his beak and the other arm as if he’s raising his hand to ask a question. The cigar must be lit with the match that you can light with the matchbox. Position the fish’s right leg crossing his other leg. Then you will be able to change the wine level.

  19. Mary

    I got the shadow figure with wings to appear at the end (used the fireflies and it’s just staring at me now), but the black cube will not appear no matter where or what I click.

  20. Jazz Mobius

    I have the rope tied to the safety pin and there’s a white feather on the floor, no matter what I tap on nothing happens…

  21. Amy

    I can only play one note on the glass help
