Cube Escape: The Cave: Complete Walkthrough Guide

Level 2, The Submarine:

You can also watch my video for the rest of the game here:

1. Pick up the shell and the empty ink bottle from the table. Also, look at the picture of the castle that tells you “depth = 40.” There’s also an arrow pointing left with a 3 on it and an arrow pointing down with a 2 next to it. There’s also a map with some coordinates. The hotel is at 6, 3 — so 3 left and 2 down becomes 3, 5.





2. Tap on the machine in the center of the room. Change the depth to 40, the X to 03 and then the Y to 05. The red light will turn green.


3. Go left and place the green diamond in the slot. What this does is make the sub move. You can move up to 5 squares at a time on the map by moving the dial to a number and then pulling the lever. But first, look at the map and make note of where the sub is and where the target is.


4. Go back right. Turn the handle above until the depth meter says 40.


5. Then go to the compass and turn it in the direction you want to go. So first, set the compass to North and the dial to 5. Pull the lever by the diamond and the sub will move closer to the target.




6. Go back to the compass and turn it to West. Change the dial to 4 and pull the lever to get the sub to the target.




7. Now there’s a white cube floating near the grabber. You need to use the grabber to, well, grab it. Then drop it through the tube and press the big red button to suck it into the sub. So the first step is to move the grabber one tick left, then pull the lever down to grab the cube. Pull the lever back up, then move the cube all the way to the right, pull the lever down again to release the cube, and press the red button to suck it in.




8. Now find the cube and pull the lever.


9. Find it again and pull the lever. Then tap the TV screen.



10. Solve this puzzle by lining up the pieces of the picture. Then tap the parrot to get the white cube.



11. Place the white cube in the slot by the diamond to power it up again.


12. Now go to the window and you’ll see a fish. You need to use those two movable objects to direct the fish to the pipe. Then pick it up from the big bowl.



13. Keep catching the other fish. I’ll show video of it later, but the positions of the two objects in my photos should be enough to help you.



14. Keep going. And don’t miss out on the jump scare!




15. The two fish at once is trickier but not too bad. You need to send one to the button and one to the pipe.

Can you say what the rule is for the cell puzzle under the microscope? I did the first level by accident. Not sure how it works.


in part 2 what the rule of puzzle ( extracting ink from squid) ?


You need to have all the suckers turned pink. When you click on a tentacle it goes up two suckers and one on the adjacent(s) tentacles. You progressively work your way until all’s pink (took me quite some time).


The thing with these is that the start with only one when you get one to much. For example: You habe one black left and klick on the tentakle to make it full. It will turn into one because you normally get 2 pink sockets when you klick the tentakle there is one too much that will be added at the end.


Awesome walk through! I was able to get about 3/4 without the help but when I needed it this was perfect! Thanks!



You go to 3,5 because the clue says go 3 left and 2 down from the castle, which is at 6,3.


Go down to 50 depth and there is a stone with some symbols. Not sure what to do with them, or what letters to use for morse code.


You have to have unlocked the black cube first. Then, when you get the part where you can type in the Morse code, you have to guide the angler to the tiny fish using the words up, down, left, and right in Morse code. After that, the angler will flash some Morse code back at you and it will say “ink” in Morse code. Not sure what to do after though.


I am up to the fish, do you know the order to have them all balanced out?


Trial and error works well for that: find the set of two that’s heaviest (down further) and remove one and replace it with one from the lightest set, see how it goes, repeat. Should arrive at the good balance quite fast.


You need to navigate the submarine to the flashing green light using the compass and the thing that makes the sub move. When there you will can pick up a white cube from one off the rooms.


For some reason I can’t add the elixir to the bottle. Can someone tell me what I’m doing wrong ?


How do you pass the square things on part 1. I’m Completly lost.!

Cube Lover

I think you should do the the things which is needed in the book. And it draws you the shape.


I’m at the part in the submarine where I have to go to the x y location, but i’ve gone too far! Do you know how I can go back?


I let the stalactite drip incorrectly. How can I reset it?


for some reason there’s no black box near the grabber


So I think they’ve updated the game since you last posted and now there’s a new part and I’m completely stumped, can you please help?


How do you take the cubes out of the machine? It won’t let me do it


Do we not have to save the girl in the final room.
You save Dale by giving him the golden cube. Do we not need to save the girl in the other room?


Please post video solving of octopus tentacles. Thanks


Why when I go ti the second point in the submarine I don’t have energy


Did you get the cube at that point? And were you able to solve the puzzles with the shell and ink? I suspect you can’t move the submarine until all those are done.


I have the white and back cubes, got ink from the squid into the bottle, burnt the 6 fish to reveal owl. But now I’m stuck and don’t know what to do next. If I put owl into the letter dials, nothing happens. And I can’t place the ink bottle on its stand our on the map. Am I missing something?


Make sure you typed OWL not OWI


Ok. So I figured out the pattern to get the squid ink. The only thing is that first you’ll have to set it up so that only the first suckers are popped up (basically a cleared board as there is always one of them open). This may be a bit confusing so stay with me.
I labelled them tentacle A, B, C, and D from left to right.
-tap tentacle B
-then tentacle C
-then tentacle A
-then tentacle D TWICE
-then tentacle B
-and finally tentacle A
That should work assuming that you were able to clear the tentacles.

Checked your video. You are amazing. But how do you record your internal sound and voice over simultaneously? Wish to record some similar walkthroughs. Thanks
