Cube Escape: Paradox – Complete Walkthrough Guide

Cube Escape: Paradox
By: Rusty Lake


Cube Escape: Paradox is the latest addition to the Rusty Lake franchise of quirky room escape games. It’s the tenth Cube Escape game and thirteenth Rusty Lake game. It can be tricky, so this walkthrough guide should help you if you get stuck. Feel free to ask for extra help in the comments section.

Walkthrough:

Chapter 1 Page 1 | Page 2 | Page 3 | Page 4 | Page 5 | Page 6 | Page 7 | Chapter 2 | Achievements

You can watch my video for Chapter 1 or continue below for my step-by-step guide.

61. The dots now form a new shape. It looks like the clock, so drag the mass to the clock.

62. The next shape looks like the typewriter, so drag it there.

63. The next shape looks like the TV, so drag it there.

64. The next shape looks like a door, so drag it there.

65. The next shape looks like the mirror, so drag it there. Then examine the mirror. Tap each of the black dots and your reflection will turn into the silhouette.

66. Now you have to solve a labyrinth puzzle where you sort the memories in your head so you can escape. The way this works is you tap the circle to zoom in on yourself and then tap on the circle by the framed image of your mind to zoom back out. You can watch my video for it or continue below for screenshots.

67. First, pull the yellowish square to the right of the one you’re in and then zoom in. Run to the shadow and tap the circle next to him to make him disappear.

68. Run to the right to get to the yellow square and then get near the picture frame and then tap the circle again to zoom back out.

69. Now, move the squares so the pink is to the left of the yellow one you’re in and the blue one is to the left of the pink one. Tap the circle and head left into the pink one. Take the elevator up (interact with the birthday celebrators here to get an Easter egg) and go left into the blue square. Take the elevator down and stand near the picture frame again. Tap the circle again to zoom back out.

70. Next, pull the gray hexagon patterned square to the right of the blue square. Drag the square with the gear in it over the gray one. Then tap the circle and make your way up the two elevators and to the picture frame. Tap the circle.

71. Keep the gray box under the gear box. Then drag the brown square with a bit of pipe coming up from the ground to the left of the gray square. Tap the circle and make your way to the brown square. Tip over the glass of liquid. Then tap the picture frame again.

72. Drag your square over the gear square and then tap the circle again. Pull the lever to open the pipe’s valve and suck all the water down into the gear room.

73. Drag the gray square to the right of your square and drag the gear square to the top of the gray square. Drag the other pipe room to the right of your square and then tap the circle again. Make your way through to the gear room and pull the lever to suck all the water through the pipe into the next room. Tap the picture frame again.

74. We’re almost done. Drag the pipe square under your square and then the burgundy square to the left of that one. Tap the circle. Take the elevator down and get in the submarine. Go down underwater and then left to a man at a desk. You’re at the hotel? Open the curtains and tap on the picture frame to zoom back out.

75. Move your square to the nasal passage and then tap the circle. Go right and take the elevator down. Then head right and out of your head.

take the cigar and continue to burn the drawings, then cut the sheet with scissors and overlap it at the top, use the typewriter to enter the letters found, after having repeated for another two times you will get the code 910 to be selected on TV . at that point go where there is the screen and move the face according to the direction of the eyes, you will receive a shred of fabric to be put in the case 23. I hope I have been helpful to you

then enter the codes you find in case 23 in the order of the letters DBAEC with the corresponding symbols, you will get a cassette, put it in the recorder and the parrot will fly away, you will get the third cube and the cabinet below will open

Does it take long to get to the next part of the face puzzle coz I’ve done it for ages and no luck I have tried moving the face in opposite direction to eyes only when it tells you “the other way” and doing every time but it goes on forever can anyone help

The first movement is in opposite direction , you dont have to wait she say “move my face”.
When she says “the other way” you start the puzzle again. All the movements is in opposite direction.
I think they are like 10 movements in total.

Setting the hour hand at 1 and minute at 8 or 9 (or hour and minute hand vice versa (sorry, I don’t remember)), opens the third drawer below the clock. This gives a key which opens the cabinet near to the cryptic machine near the TV. There’s a hat inside it, which then taken to the mirror and put on the head, gives another symbol. I don’t what’s the use of it till now. And I don’t know what the symbols in the name files mean too.

You have to move the box with the gear underneath the box with the wine glass first so the pipes are lined up so the water has somewhere to go. I was stuck on that too.

Is there any kind of synopsis of the story of all the Rusty Lake games so far? I’ve played them all but there are so many that it is hard to remember how they all fit together to get us to this point. Like I feel like we’ve learned a lot about Dale and Laura’s respective backstories and their connection but it is almost impossible to remember by now.

Hi
I have got to the wall and I only have 3 statues I picked up the crow and woman and when I got to the wall there was already one in there (maybe I did it inadvertently) I have been back and forth but I can’t find another statue, I’ve been to all the crosses, can anyone help me please cos I’ve got the next chapter and I’m not sure I can play it unless I’ve first finished chapter 1.
I don’t know what the statue in the wall was it’s in the bottom right side of the wall
Many thanks in advance

The same thing happened to me except I went to the X with the woman first, got nothing from it. Then I got the crow statue, then the man. When I went back to the woman statue it still didn’t show. I didn’t buy Chapter 2 but it does suck that I can’t finish the game. (Ignore how late I am lol)
