Review: Rusty Lake Cube Escape Paradox Chapter 1

I realised I haven’t actually done a game review for a while but I love the Rusty Lake series and so when the new one came out I had to play it.

Rusty Lake Cube Escape Paradox is the tenth in the cube escape series and the first chapter is completely free with the option of paying £1.99 to get the second chapter.

They arrived yesterday and we’ve had a few goes at them, they’re all very quick games even with the three rounds on two of them, so I thought I’d include mini reviews on each, I could do a more detailed one on any of them if you’re interested though. The games I got were Exoloding Kittens, Love Letter and Sushi Go! None of them are the most recent but they’re simple and I’m a sucker for nice art on games.
