Good but too short. I get what they were going for with playing the game twice but to be honest even then it’s too short. Unlike Rusty Lake Hotel, Paradise, and even the white door this game feels way too short for a new game. I hope it gets updated soon because it was really fun to work with someone to figure out the puzzles instead of looking up a guide. 10/10 game but should be longer.

Best co-op game I’ve played. My little sister and I loved this game! We live in different states and constantly are trying to find games we can play together and we loved this one! How we have to work together to find each others solutions! It was an amazing experience! I hope for more games like this in the future!

So worth it!. My husband and I played this game and it was so much fun! I wish the game was longer because we could have sat and played it all night! How clever and fun this game and idea is! I hope they develop it more and make different modes and such! Highly recommend!

Rusty Lake win per usual. I always played the other Rusty Lake games with my partner and so we were *thrilled* when a co-op was released. It was so fun to play together and lived up to our expectations. Don’t think it took us much more than 2-3 hours total to play. This series brings us joy😌💜 For sure worth the $2.99!

Can’t Help Comparing This to Previous RL Games…. ….and while not terrible, there is something missing for me. I get the interactive play is an innovation, but the puzzles were fairly easy and obvious. I feel that TPW is not as boring as The White Door, but these last 2 RL offerings sacrificed the surreal feel of their predecessors in exchange for a load of gimmicks. I know my opinion is not the majority, but I feel it should be stated. Am still a RL fan, but have been disappointed in the 2 latest games while still applauding the attempt at novelty. Am hoping further games return to earlier standards.

Another Wonderful Rusty Lake Game. There aren’t enough stars to properly rate this newest offering from Rusty Lake. The concept is unique, two players with different screens working together to solve puzzles. The timing of the game is great, and even though the two devices are not communicating, the game is very cohesive and well coordinated. The game was less challenging than some other rusty lake games, as well as a little less dark, but all the same I would recommend. Just make sure you know how to communicate well

nice co-op game. if there’s 10 for the rank of difficulty, this game is the 6 or 6.5. Not too difficult to solve it, the most difficult thing is tryna have a good cooperation between two ppl. we have to discuss the detail of hints for each others. This game is worth 100% your time and your money lol

BEST CO-OP PUZZLE GAME. Worth the money!!!! Me and my friend played this in one go and we enjoyed every bit of the game! It was very fun and at the same time quite challenging. The puzzles will make you think but also easy enough to be solved. I like puzzles like this that’s not too hard on the brain but also not too easy and it’s in the middle. I like the thrill too!! Fair share of horror vibes. Please developers, make more co-op puzzle solving games like this, I beg you!! This is too good! I just love the concept and everything about this. A MUST DOWNLOAD GAME if you’re into solving medium level puzzles with a bestie. PLEASE MAKE MORE CO-OP PUZZLE GAMES :)) thank you for this! If you’re reading this to see if it’s with paying for. This is your sign, DOWNLOAD IT NOW—you won’t regret it.

Super fun w/ my daughter. I couldn’t wait to play this game! I grabbed my daughter this afternoon to play this flash masterpiece by Rusty Lake. Given I’ve played all their games, I explained the quirky logic and creepiness to her so she would quickly enjoy the game. She did. I did. What fun! We were able to finish as the Butterfly in 2 hours. I started in the past and she was in the future. At first, i felt bad she wasn’t experiencing the room but then the game switches where the past operates the box and the future is in the room. So clever! We want to try it again as the bee for fun! Thank you Rusty Lake developers for a terrific co-op game! Please make more!

Nobody does it like Rusty Lake. If Escape Rooms needed a definition, that would hands down be Rusty Lake. The graphics, details, the eerie music make the game so difficult to put down. It’s got just the right amount of creepy to make it down right addicting. I’ve paid and played all the Rusty Lake games, and I was so sad when I finished all of them. So when I saw that Rusty Lake finally came out with with a new game, I’ve never double-clicked my lock button so fast. This new co-player game was ingenius. I’m doing long distance with my girlfriend so we’re really limited on how we spend time together, but with The Past Within we had so much fun. I especially was amazed at the new 3D graphics and I LOVED LOVED LOVED that the characters and themes from past games were also in the Past Within as well. Rusty Lake, please don’t stop what ya’ll are doing and I can’t wait for the next chapter.

Really should have read co-op more closely. I pre-order all of the rusty lake games and did the same with this one excitedly waiting….only to discover I had not closely read the “co-op” note. Please be aware before you pay for this that you CAN NOT PLAY WITHOUT ANOTHER PERSON. Not really something that interests me, but my fault for not carefully reading. Hoping to save others like me from wasting their money on a game they can’t play. ☹️ But five stars because Rusty Lake is a great series. I hope the next release is single player. We aren’t all teenagers.

Co op?. I’ve always loved rusty lake. I look for new games a lot or trying to find something that measures up but never does. I bought this game expecting it to be single player cause it’s always been single player. I like playing by myself. And now I’ve wasted money on a game I can’t play at all. I even thought I could try to play on and just do both paths separately. But I’m assuming both stories connect somehow. It’s not fair honestly. Why couldn’t y’all having given us an option? Waste of money dude

Scary as **** but worth it. Me and my friend played this, some parts were really scaring but laughing it out with a friend made it also really fun. I don’t really like things that are too scary but this was really fun, so if you think about not playing it because it’s scary, reconsider, it’s so much fun!!! And great story. Not only that, but the puzzles in this game are tricky and fun too!

Amazing as always. I’m a big fan of the cube escape series, and I love the idea of co-op for this game!!! Had a lot of fun playing with my friend. I’m excited to see the next project they have. I’m sad to see other reviewers complaining about the co-op aspect. If you don’t like that, then you can just not download the game…

Holy Bonkers!. This game was so simple and complex at the same time. This is the first co-op game I throughly enjoyed and so did my friend. This game is definitely worth the purchase and I’d encourage you all to play through it. My friend and I can’t wait to see what else they come up with. Beautiful little story as well! (Btw, there’s some kinda creepy images if you get scared easily but it’s not bad)

Absolutely Brilliant!. The creators of Rusty Lake did it AGAIN! They created a game that has put all others of it’s kind to shame. Honestly, this long awaited game did NOT disappoint. You guys ROCK! I hope that you continue to do what you do BEST! I love the two player feature that puts you and your partner experiencing this one-of-a-kind game together without in order to help solve the puzzles and tell the story. It’s like room Escape but better since you and your partner can literally play on different platforms without being together and have so much fun doing it. Rusty Lake is my game obsession and love replaying the different games over again! Thank you Rusty Lake creators for all your hard work! 🫶🏻

Worth the money!. I was looking for a fun game play with my friend and we stumbled upon this masterpiece. We decided to purchase this game and oh boy were we surprised. The storyline and animation was amazing! It kept my friend and I entertained for hours as we tried to overcome puzzles. I would definitely recommend this game to everyone. I would love to applaud the creators for their amazing game-building abilities!

Pretty Amazing as Expected. Though not as challenging as other Rusty Lake games (and maybe a bit shorter), the concept was unique and advancing through the game still felt rewarding as each of us unlocked clues for each other. I was lucky enough to have a family member play along in the same room. I am sure that made it a little easier. Either way, we loved it.

Amazing and Dark. I just finished this in a single sitting with my wife and it was incredible! Using blind cooperation to solve puzzles and dive deeper into the story was fantastic. We wish the game didn’t end and just kept going. Hopefully another title like this comes out cause we cannot wait! Thank you very much.

Rusty Lake for Two. I'll start by saying I've been obsessed with the entire Rusty Lake library for years. I pretty much only play point & click puzzle adventure games and Rusty Lake is at the very top of my list of must-play games. With that being said, I've tried to convince my husband that even though he's not as into puzzle games as I am, that he would love RL -- from the Twin Peaks vibe to the deep, twisty family lore, it's right up his alley if he'd just give it a try. Well, cue The Past Within. We're constantly looking for co-op/2-player games, from video games to table games, and good ones are harder to find than you'd think. We played The Past Within twice, all in one day. He couldn't stop talking about it and when I woke up the following morning, I found him playing Seasons on the couch, already having downloaded the entire series of games. He puzzled his way all the way through, and now he's just as excited and anxious for the next installment as I am! The Past Within was an ingenious take on multiplayer co-op puzzling, and was just as fun & entertaining for a Rusty Lake & puzzle-obsessed nerd as it was for a newbie to the genre. The communication aspect was always fun, never frustrating, and sharing the unique experiences each of us was having was a blast. Amazing work to the Rusty Lake team, thanks for another beautiful game! Fingers crossed the wait for the next game won't be long 🐦

Amazing coop game for long distance. My partner and I played this while we both are away from each other. We tried the lite version and fell in love and purchased the full version and it is probably the best game I have played on a phone. Highly highly recommend for any pair of people!!!

Please make more!!!. My gf and I both love mystery games and this is such an enjoyable experience for both of us while being in a long distance relationship. I wish there were more games like this for us to play together without being in the same room.

Escape Room in an App. I have been playing Rusty Lake games for years now, but this co-op game is very close to being in an actual escape room communicating with your partner. My wife and I enjoyed our afternoon working through this game so much we decided to do it a second time swapping sides and picking the other option. Love how it ties to the other Rusty Lake games.

OMG. So me and my girlfriend were playing the demo and she really wanted me to pay for this game and I though I’m not going to pay any money but as you can tell I did 😂this game has been so stressing and fun we have gone trough this game so many times just because we like it. So take it for me it is worth it and it’s crazy the way that the people created the game you do not need to be online like call of duty you just have to be at the same time and to me That’s crazy

Great game to play with friend!!!!!. I’ve always been a huge fan of rustic lake and this is definitely one of their best work! Me and my friend don’t live in the same country now and it was so nice to play this game together and have some good time👍 highly recommended!!!!!!

Another amazing and beautiful game. I love Rusty Lake everything and this is another victory. It’s not a super long play, but still engrossing. But if you are a Rusty Lake fan, you already know it’s going to be awesome. I played alone using two devices and it was still really fun. Now I have to go back and replay all the other games.

Rusty Lake did it again!. They made an excellent two-player game with signature Rusty Lake qualities: complex plot and on-point continuity for long-time fans, but also enough novelty and originality to interest anyone who wants to play it as a stand-alone (although I’d highly recommend all of the series)!

The best co-op game I have ever played!. This game was completely worth it. I have never played a better co-op game in my life, and the fact that it’s on mobile makes it just that much better. I never leave reviews on games, but I honestly feel like everyone should play this game. It is honestly just that good, and worth so much more than the money that it cost. The light version I cannot speak for, but the main version is definitely worth your money. I never pay money for mobile games either so that’s a lot.

oh my god 😱⭐️! masterpiece.. oh my god. like my title said, it is a MASTERPIECE. The detail, the thought, the design and emotion is the best. The co-op idea is so fun! Me and my mom were doing it together and had the best time. I would really hope soon you guys would make more co-op games because I will 1000% be playing them. Great job 👏

Had fun, love Rusty Lake. I was waiting for a new Rusty Lake game, big fan of the games. So happy when I saw this new one released! Played with my husband on the couch together and we both had a lot of fun. I recommend being in the same room as the other person playing. We tried being both the Bee and the Butterfly but didn’t notice any difference, so not sure what the point of each was? Going to try the Lite version next to see the difference there. Overall happy with this new release and excited to be back in the Rusty Lake realm.

Short co-op game. I was disappointed. It is not challenging and takes about an hour or two aside from the back-and-forth communication time to play with a partner. The puzzles only require good communication, yet I am not interested in playing puzzle games with partners. Communication challenges aside, these are not difficult puzzles. I love Rusty Lake games and wish there more to this game. On a positive note, excellent graphics and ease of gameplay with a typically strange RL storyline—thank you!

One of the best games !. This game is one of the best games to play either with your significant one or a friend it def interesting and just the art and the meaning is such a crazy experience you should definitely buy this game ! It’s worth it !!!! You’ll love it !!!

Made My Wife a Fan. I’ve been playing Rusty Lake games for a very long time. I talked my wife into being my partner for The Past Within. She agreed and is now completely won over. The design is ingenious, and worked flawlessly. It also gave our communication skills with each other a good test…a definite plus! Bravo…

Amazing experience. This was absolutely amazing me and my brother played the lite version first and we decided we needed to keep playing 10/10 would recommend to any and everyone my only wish is that there is another game like it

Best Phone Date W/ My Wife!!!. Easily the best game for $6 we played through in an hour or so and it was the best adventure we had. Usually we stay away from the phones when were together but when she stumbled across this game it was a great time for the both of us! ^ Best 2player fun date idea we need more scary games like this!

Played with my sister, had a blast!. My sister and I really enjoyed playing this game! The fact that we did not need to connect in anyway really helped us continue to stay engaged without technical issues. We had to communicate and describe our situations, and it made for some really fun moments! I’m so happy with the game, and I will likely share it with friends of mine!

GREAT game!. Husband and I played this for our date night, and I love that it was good for our communication skills and team work. Also, huge bonus is being able to play in reverse roles or another scenario. Great job on this one, we had a great time and I'm so glad I saw this on TikTok!

Absolutely incredible!. Hands down the best co-op puzzle game I’ve ever played. Great little story line and super clever mechanics. Got to play both sides through and they are equally as exciting even if you know what’s happening from the other perspective. Loved every second of this!

Very well made!. the puzzles took a little time at first, but i enjoyed how creepy the game felt as we’d progressed through it. i have only played the butterfly mode, but it made for a wonderful experience and will most definitely play again!

I absolutely love this game!. I have played every single Rusty lake game that there is and this one might be my favorite so far. I absolutely loved the multiplayer factor of it seeing as I always played the games with my sister. This game series is fantastic and I would recommend it to anyone over 11 years old. I adore this game series so much. The price is very much worth it even though it is only 4$.

Love it for our Long Distance Relationship. My partner and I have played all of the Rusty Lake games and absolutely love them. I love the theme a little more than she does, it’s a bit creepy for her, but so much fun for me. We’re long distance which made playing this one together so much more special. We give it ALL the stars!

Makes for a fun date night!!. Now, I played this with my sister over the phone, but we both agree that playing it with your significant other as a date night would be fun! We are very familiar with the rusty lake games so we kind of knew what to expect and it took us a good hour and 45 minutes to finish! Definitely worth a download!! It’s got the creepy factor and it’s decently challenging. The art is so good and the the overall lore of the games are just so unsettling, which makes for a great experience!

The Past Within. This game was amazing! It was somewhat easier than the others before it, but with the co-op communication gameplay it was still fun. I’ve been playing this series with my mom for a good couple years (since I was 10 I believe, I would use my phone and AirPlay it to the TV) and we were both really excited to find that we could now play a game together together. We played the first run through in about 2 hours and the second in about 1 or 1 and a half.

Unique co-op experience and perfect addition to the Rusty Lake series. I’ll start by saying I absolutely love every single Rusty Lake game. I’ve played them all at least twice, my favorites even more. Like many of you, I’ve been eagerly awaiting a new game. Also like many of you, I was super bummed when I heard it would be a co-op game. I typically play games when I want alone time. That being said… I kept an open mind and convinced my husband to play it with me. We had SO much fun. I filled him in on a little bit of the back story and it was so fun to hear him audibly gasp at different elements of the game and creeptastic moments that I’ve gotten so accustomed to. I don’t know how it would be playing online with a stranger, but if you have someone in your life who you trust and who is intelligent and can think outside the box do whatever it takes to convince them to play with you. You won’t be disappointed. My only complaint is that I wish we could have many more chapters/installments because I can’t wait to play more! We were able to beat the game in one sitting. Thanks Rusty Lake! I love this unique addition to my favorite series!

Excellent. This was a good time. I don’t mind that I spent a couple bucks on this, as it was worth it. You do need a buddy to play with, but they offer a Discord server if you don’t have someone, which is cool. I have only played it once so far, but I look forward to playing it again, as the puzzles and experience will be different.

Fun and new game experience!!!. Me and my sister just tried this game and it was fun i think the 2.99 was worth it honestly we tried the lite version first then bought this i hope they come out with more games like this!

Having trouble with the download…. Hi there! Love your games so much and was so excited to download the latest, but I’ve been running into a problem. When I try to download the app onto my phone, it stops downloading less then halfway through. I don’t know if it’s on your end, mine, or the App Store’s. I really want to play the game but I can’t even access it :( help!

Wow, good game!. My friend and I had an awesome experience playing this game. We got stuck on some of the puzzles and had to google the answer to some of the puzzles, but overall it was a very fun experience trying to find the solution to these things. The storyline was immersive and incredibly easy to follow, it kept me waiting for the next thing to pop up. I always thought there would be a jumpscare around every corner, but there never was and I am incredibly thankful for that. The game was advertised to be 2 hours, yet we spent around 6 hours on it, so atleast we got our money's worth haha. A lot of people are complaining about the co-op being required but it's the base premise of the game. It's executed incredibly and it's so fun to play this game with friends! 10/10, would recommend

Me and my friend LOVE THIS GAME!!!!. I don’t usually write review about game but I have to say: this game is AMAZING!!! Me and my best friend tried the demo version first, and after finish it, we decided to buy the full version of this game. We spend about 4 hours to finish and it really worth the money. We LOVE this! Thanks to the creators 🥳 We really hope that you will have more games like this.

Had so much fun. I was reluctant to buy a game on the App Store but this game is very much worth it. I sincerely enjoyed solving the puzzles and it gave me a excusable opportunity to yell at my friend. Take it from someone who’s broke and barely spends money buy the game and play it on a weekend when you have nothing else to do. 🙂

Hate the co-player format. So hard to find someone who speaks the same language and is in the same time zone! Plus I play games to tune out and be alone. I don’t want to have to play with someone. Met a couple of people on Discord who have ghosted me. Can’t find anyone to play with it (and just wish I could play it on my own terms and in my own way)

My favourite game. My partner and I just finished the game and we chose the butterfly. It’s such a well thought out game. Idek what else to say other than you must play it! I love it so much. ^_^ Thank you to everyone who worked on this!

Best game I’ve ever played. Honestly the most well thought out and put together game I have ever played, the puzzles aren’t so easy that the game goes by quick but also challenging enough to stop and make you think, best purchase I’ve ever made

Great Game. It was a really fun and a well made game definitely worth the money and would recommend but the ending was a little anticlimactic.

Great game!. My daughter and I played today. I really enjoyed it. It was like an escape room from my lounge. We did butterfly , if we chose the other would the game be the same? We will play again! Thanks for creating.

Just brilliant!. Rusty Lake can do no wrong! For those critical of the price, just a reminder of all the Rusty Lake games you played for free ; )

Quality. Rusty Lake never fails to excite, amaze and to bend the players brain into weird, new shapes. TPW gives us the usual quality and challenge of game play, but this time we get to share in the delight. Just, brilliance.

Amazing!. Loved this game so much and about to replay with the bee! I need more 😂

Too short. Excellent game, but too short for the price. I would expect more than an hour game play for $4.49.

Absolutely love it. But definitely need more levels. I absolutely love this game. But I’m very disappointed that there’s only two levels. Please look into creating at least another 3 levels of each past and future.

Things better when shared. Absolutely incredible. Love the more 3D game play and using swiping not just tapping to solve puzzles. Loved being able to share it with a friend.

amazing. best game i’ve ever played in my life

Great little game worth a few bucks. Great concept

Since I was a kid. This game is everything.

Great game! More 2 player games pls!!!. It was very hard but also very interesting and got me surprised many times!

fun. really is a lot of fun i guess the only thing i would want is more chapters besides that had a lot of fun.

Wish it was longer. Good fun

Really amazing. Pretty cool cooperative game.

Top-Tier Game. This is the worst game i've never played because i don't have friends.

Two player game was SO FUN!. amazing and support Rusty Lake forever

So Addictive!. The only down side is waiting for the next one, especially now that the stories are starting to mesh together. Another great game Rusty Lake team, thank you!

Can there be a 1 player version please?. I was so excited to see a new Rusty Lake game, having played every single one. Downloaded this without reading the description, because after so many iterations I know the quality is good and don’t need to know the story line until I start to play. Finally had time to sit down today and start playing to find out I have to play with another player, there is no option not to :( Hopefully a single player version might be available in the future. Otherwise I look forward to the next instalment.

One of the best games. I’ve played all the episodes of rusty lake games. This was really different and the puzzles were great. Thank you and waiting for the next episode! :)

Amazing. Rusty Lake never misses. Another masterpiece… I only wish it would’ve been longer. Can’t wait for the next one!

Fantastic Co-op Game. Fantastic Co-op Game

Fun but too much $. It was a fun game to play through, but short for $4/person. Not really worth the money. We played through in about an hour, and I expected more content for a game we’re paying for.

Loved it!!!! Wish there was more!!!. Amazing!!! We loved this so much. We only wish it was longer!!! Would be a ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ if there was more!!

Not worth $8. Played for about an hour - keep in mind BOTH players need to buy the game. So it’s an $8 game, for one hour.

Fun but too short for 4$. It was fun but too short for 4$.

Amazing. This game has wonderful animation and is super fun to play. Takes about 1 hour, totally worth the money. Puzzles are hard to find but once found are easily solvable with lots of communication. Great sound design. Props to the creators. My girlfriend and I had a lot of fun playing.

D’un fan.. désolé. Je donne un 3.5 … le jeu est encore de toute beauté mais cette fois beaucoup trop facile. Il s’installe aussi une certaine redondance. Après 2.5 ans d’attente… Il reste que la jouabilité à 2 de cette sorte est une nouveauté pleine de potentielle, bravo pour ça!!

SO MUCH FUN!. best rusty lake game yet! (and that’s a high bar!!!)

So fun!!!. me and josh both like this game SOOO much! It took us 2.25 hours of problem solving fun! The game made sense once we got the hang of it :) thanks!

SO FUN!. My boyfriend and I played this game as a little date night in, and it was just like a virtual escape room! Totally worth the money, but I wish there were more chapters.

the easiest Rusty lake game. unlike usual, this game focus on interaction between two people, the difficulty is relatively much lower, but u can still be proud of yourself as the achievement of thinking. the last play impress me really much, this game is worth it.

Rusty lake has yet to let me down. Another smash hit. Incredible addition of a new 3D animation that allows both players to take turns navigating the old Rusty lake style combined with a new style. Constantly kept both my brother and I engaged, there was never a moment when either of us were stuck or bored waiting on the other player. It was constantly moving at pace, such clever puzzles to work through together, and requires A LOT of communication and teamwork. My only complaint: I WISH IT WAS LONGER. I got excited seeing chapter 2 after a thrilling chapter 1, but that was it!!! 😭 can’t wait for the next instalment. Two years was worth every second. Finished it in two hours. Incredible.

Fantastic. Another wildly inventive, creative game from Rusty Lake that makes old-fashioned turn-based co-op work surprisingly well.

10/10. So fun, make another one:)

Honestly amazing and clever. Fun to do, really well done with the co-op and impressive that there isn’t even a need to sync up devices, as well as an interesting plot that gives you the chills. I hope Rusty Lake makes more co-op games because I seriously loved this. Worth every penny!

Fun Co-op Game. This game is fun to play with someone, and it shows how important communication is.

Amazing new experience. This was mind blowing. The team really stepped up their game between samsara and this one. It’s not as challenging as a typical escape room game as it’s more focused on cooperation and the pleasure of discovering next steps rather than going crazy trying to solve a difficult puzzle (which is also fun but could be frustrating as a coop). Anyways, we just did butterfly in one setting and cannot wait to tackle the other one tomorrow. Thank you again!

Great game. I fricking love the games created by these people and this game has got to be the coolest I’ve played in a long time. I was spooked a little bit and ran from my screen but I was brave and finished the game with my partner and we did it! Woohoo

Refreshing!. I love how unique and creative the puzzle is. The idea and slightly eerie aspects are there and it is quite fun and long! Co-op in puzzle games is also an not so often thing to occur with great storyline parts, and this game showcased it perfectly.

The game crash after instructions :(. Hi there! The game keeps crashing right after the instructions. The chapter 1 title appears and then, the game closes. I am playing on an Ipad, never experienced that with your other games. Hope you’ll find a solution! Thank you for your amazing games

Too short. I loved the co-op aspect if this game and I hope there will be more like this in the future. It was so good and it left me needing more, I wish it were longer.

Enjoyed it, but.... My friend and I really enjoyed it! It’s very carefully crafted, the visuals are very nice, it’s just that the ending is a little bit anti-climatic and left us with more questions than answers. It’s the price of a large coffee you’d finish in an hour anyway, so it’s not a big deal if you don’t end up being obsessed with it:)

I love it!!. Played for 4 hours non-stop with a stranger! What a great premise. The other player is in a different timeline and you communicate what you see in your time and try to solve puzzles. We had some struggles but finally made it to the end! Now if I can find someone to play with me once more I can play the other timeline!!! Bravo Rusty Lake! This was a masterpiece and I hope and pray you make more of the 2 person player games!! ( I’ll be happy with some of NEW games from you!! )

Loved it. It’s hard to describe but it was really good I want to know if you’re still making more please still make more also I have a question is the same tree in the end the same tree as the one in birthday cube escape

Enjoyed it very much. Please add more chapters!!

Awesome. Weird content but awesome game. Hoping for more!

The past within. This game was absolutely fantastic. I had never played anything like it!!!

Fun, and Simple!. I played this game with my husband last night and we had so much fun! I loved being able to communicate with him to solve the puzzles, and I liked that it wasn’t too hard to beat either. The replayability is great - we haven’t done our second play through yet but we will soon! My only issues with the game are that it’s a little short, and that I wish the ending was more interesting, but overall definitely worth the $8 in total for the game!

So worth it. The value for a few dollars is honestly so worth it

Awesome game. Amazing game. Played it with my girlfriend. Please create more!!

The Past Within couple edition. This game truly is a masterpiece after playing the demo absolutely fell in love with the dynamic and group work that had to be done. I played this with my long-distance boyfriend, and this experience truly made us learn how to bond with each other a lot better. Overall the graphics and the storyline was truly amazing. The developers really put in time and it shows thank you for this experience. I highly recommend this games for couples or even just a duo bond !

Enjoy with a child. Spent an fun afternoon with my daughter deciphering the puzzles. Thank you…

Love it. I told this game over three times and it’s all good I played this game it’s the best

Awesome!. I’ve played all of the Rusty Lake games so far and they never disappoint! This was a great game and I hope they make another like this as it is great to play with friends in different places. Played both parts in one sitting and would continue to play!!! Great two-player puzzle game and definitely worth the price!

Ok.. Could be longer. Liked the thrill.

AMAZING!. My partner and I have such a hard time finding games to play together and this so awesome and quick! We will be playing the other version tomorrow because of how much fun we had. Hopefully will get another game like this soon!

Great game. Well worth the 4 dollars. Very fun coop game that last roughly 3 hours. Definitely makes you think critically and required good teamwork.

Brilliant, lots of fun with a friend!. The effect of the game works great without need for internet connection, we had a lot of fun. Thanks for another great game, I would say this one has puzzles that are definitely beginner friendly as well. Totally recommend, great art and story as always! -A & L

excellent. just completed this start to finish with my bf. super fun experience. such a fun game

Amazing game♥️. This game it’s amazing. Please play it, the best 3.99$ of my life, I swear !!

F. Game was fun one part we were stuck with no instructions but otherwise it was supper fun👍👍👍👍

Amazing story telling.. This game is next level. 11/10

Love it. Wasn't as long as I think it would be. Typical rustylake style. Love the bond of Rose and Albert. Wasn't so hard at all. Definitely worth the price and worth the two years I have been waited :)

Amazing brain teaser. Not only are the graphics cool, but the storyline is thrilling and intriguing. The Co-op mechanisms make for an awesome partner game and bonding experience. 10/10 would recommend for anyone who likes puzzles. This is a super cool idea for a game. Thank you for creating it!

Fun. Nice design as usual, but a little too easy compared to usual Rusty games. Fun with the co-op twist. Was nice to have a new game at hand, can’t wait for more!

What a scam. Apparently you need to read the fine print… this game tries to force you to play with other people… there should be some kind of warning because it is useless to people like me. Couldn’t even play it once. Don’t waste your money .

Fun mysterious adventure. This game was such a joy to play with my 10 year old son. We both felt challenged and excited as the story unfolded. I especially love the cooperative emphasis and the story telling. We look forward to playing more games from Rusty Lake!

THE GAME IS AWESOME. Fell in love with the game literally me and my girlfriend finally found something like this wish and hope there is more development for more chapters and a more to the story line but over all beautiful and awesome game

This game was awesome!. The game play is just perfect it’s really quite a bonding experience, you have to try it with a loved one or similar, it really brings you close in a weird but cool and sweet way.

What an amazing game. At first my girlfriend didn’t wanted to play it with me, but when we started it was a nonstop everynight till we got to the end of it, absolute master piece, gonna give it a try in the bee mode now. 10/10 👍🏻

Cool game!. This game was truly something different. I played it with my significant other and although it became frustrating at times, we both enjoyed it very much. Impressed!

Fantastic!!!!!. This was such an engaging and unique game! Definitely surpassed my expectations. I wish there was a longer version and more content! I would happily pay for it!

Great Game!. This was such a fun experience to have shared with my boyfriend! The puzzles were challenging but they weren’t too difficult to the point that we would have quit out of frustration. Can’t wait to play more Rusty Lake games!

One of the best games !. This game is one of the best games to play either with your significant one or a friend it def interesting and just the art and the meaning is such a crazy experience you should definitely buy this game ! It’s worth it !!!! You’ll love it !!!

Please make a part 2!!. Me and my roommate loved this, it was a lot of fun. Such good coordination with the player 1 and 2 and not even being connected online with one another on the game. Great work, please make a second!

👍👍👍👍👍. Me and my wife loved this game. We love to go to escape rooms and challenge our teamwork skills. This was the perfect game to do just that and we didn’t even have to leave the house. Please make more like this!!

Rusty Lake is the best!!!. As a longtime fan of Rusty Lake games and lore, I was eager to play this as soon as it came out - and was not disappointed! The graphics, music, and story were all on par with previous installments, and the co-op element added a fun new twist. Recommend to anyone who’s a fan of puzzles or escape rooms.

Co-op madness!!. My girlfriend and i got recommended this game through a friend and mentioned the “no connection” needed, my intreat only grew with this information. The concept behind this game is pretty deep and i am very impressed with how immersive it is. Communication is definitely key with this one!!

awesome. this game was so freaking awesome, it was definitely worth the 3 bucks 😂! I wish it would’ve been longer but overall it was amazing!!!! very fun and mysterious and spookyyyyy i love spookyyyyyyyyy

More Scenarios. I loved this game but I kinda wished there was more scenarios to choose from and more complicated and complex chapters, me and my friend finished 2 chapters in under 60 minutes and we wished there was more to play.

Great for couples and friends!. Me and my girlfriend played both routes, it is absolutely amazing. I would recommend it for anyone that likes to solve puzzles and play with friends!

Great game. One of the best puzzle co op game I ever played and I enjoyed every last bit of it thanks to everyone who worked on it and I hope there be more chapters to play in the future Much love and respect Thank you and have a great day / year to whom read this review 💙

Fun way to connect!. If you’re a fan of other Rusty Lake games, you’ll love this! It’s a great way to enjoy the gameplay with other people. The story moves quickly and is fun to work through with a friend. Worth the $3 for sure! :)

My only disappointment came when I beat the game.. This game is so fun. A great way to spend an hour or so (even longer if you explore both roles and modes) with a friend. Easily worth the $2.99. Strongly recommend.

Unqiue co-op!. I was really impressed with this game, I can honestly say that I have never played a co-op like this. Working through puzzles together with my wife made for a great weekend date night!

Great game to play with friend!!!!!. I’ve always been a huge fan of rustic lake and this is definitely one of their best work! Me and my friend don’t live in the same country now and it was so nice to play this game together and have some good time👍 highly recommended!!!!!!

Such a fun play!. The Rusty Lake team have really taken it to the next level on this one. The collaborative play worked great for us sitting across a table from each other both on iPads.

Another incredible Rusty Lake experience. This is the best co-op experience I’ve had with my wife in gaming. I cannot recommend this enough. The puzzles are great, the atmosphere is unsettling, and the past is not dead. It’s not even the past.

DAYUMMMMMM. I love this so much. I think that it was too easy and short. The co op and 3d 2d experience was great. The way that both players got to experience 2d and 3d makes me really happy. I like the way that the puzzles work and GAH DAM albert is so fine. Thank you for giving us this beautiful masterpiece Rusty Lake devs 🙏

Amazing Experience!. What a game! Loved everything about it. The music, story, puzzles and the challenge. The ability to play this coop added another challenge to the game and was really fun to figure out with my girlfriend. Thank you for the experience!

The best escape game ever !!. It is the best game ever !!! I’ve never played any game like this before .. I started to play with cube : seasons game and I started download all the games and I can’t wait to download the other ones !! Thank you so so much whoever created them ..

Best game for multiplayer. Me and my girlfriend really enjoyed playing this game. You need a lot of communication from both players to pass the game. Definitely would recommend it.

Absolutely amazing. I have played all of the Rusty Lake games and this one has reached one of my favorites. I played with my boyfriend and I’ve never had more fun. Definitely worth the money!

It’s so fun. Me and my sister were playing it and we really enjoyed it. We really hope you make another game like this it would be so fun!

That’s the end of genius in a special way. Only Rusty Lake can make such a game that engages all your emotions and thoughts It challenges you so intelligently I love the idea of ​​this group Please continue, I look forward to more games

Can’t open the “Discord” in any browser or app.. Rusty Lake is one of my ALL TIME FAVORITE deleopers exsisting. I have completed every one of their titles; until now. After downloading and purchasing ‘The Past Within’, I discover it can ONLY be played co-op, Whitehall is novel and refreshing…..but, whenever I click on the “DISCORD” link, I get a message saying the app required could not be found. Tried it with multiple browsers to no avail. Glad I only paid $2.99 for it.

Rusty Lake Did it Again!. I LOVE Rusty Lakes games. I can’t believe they’ve done it again! And honestly, this is my favorite game so far. The co-op format is so cool. My husband and I had so much fun playing together. Can’t wait to see what is next!

Even better than expected. I love these games. I was hesitant to play this with someone else but it really added to the fun. We wished it were longer!

Very Interesting. My boyfriend and I both played this game together and worked as a team and it gave us a bond to have fun and play a game together! This was by the best thing invented! Would love to play more types of these games!

Great concept. My 16 year old daughter and I played this together and we loved it. It was a little short but worth the price, I’d say. I’ve always loved Rusty Lake games and this one took it up a notch.

Amazing as always. Just got done playing it with my sister. What a great addition to the rusty lake story! Loved the new 3D mechanic, it added a new uneasy feeling to the world. 10/10 phenomenal work everyone!

Amazing!. This was such a fun game, beautiful art & I love the fact you have to play with another person. Highly recommend! Definitely will be purchasing more games from Rusty Lake!

So much fun!. My girlfriend and I played together and had a blast! It can get challenging at times, but it’s well worth it. I highly recommend this game. I also love the art style and overall vibe. Well worth the 3 bucks.

Amazing. It made me and my girlfriend cry, I would have even paid 50 dollars if i knew it was going to be such an impressive experience. 100% recommended, and my respect to the creators.

Amazing game. This game has surpass my expectations. However, I wish it was more than just 2 chapters. The game challenges both players and maje them work as a team. I hope the developers add more chapters to it.

Perfect for 2 players looking for puzzles and Fun.. It was a wonderful experience and I really hope they make a sequel or another similar game. Me and my friend really enjoyed playing this game. Good luck on your next project.

Great game!. The directions were very direct and me and my boyfriend were able to figure it out in an evening and we had a blast. Great game for a fun little date! 10/10 would buy again!

Very intuitive game. This game had me and my friend occupied for hours. The art style is wonderful and gives off A very good vibe. Must play, the price tag might make people a bit hesitant but I can assure you it is worth it.

I get a battery instead of the fuse, and my friend got 3 coins…. I played the butterfly mode with my friend. I was playing the future, and she’s playing the past. She got 2 coins by playing chess twice, and 1 in the letter. Meanwhile, I got a battery instead of a fuse. So we stuck there. I suppose we have to start again, since the situation haven’t changed after we both updated the game.

Fun and new game experience!!!. Me and my sister just tried this game and it was fun i think the 2.99 was worth it honestly we tried the lite version first then bought this i hope they come out with more games like this!

A MUST !. So worth the $2.99, tried with a partner & we were so into it. Wish it was a bit longer only because we were hooked on it. A must try !

AMAZING GAME. I never leaver leave reviews because i don’t care enough to but this game deserves one! This kept me occupied for a good three hours and i get bored easily. I would definitely say this is worth the $3 and the time. Get this game!

My favorite game series never disappoints. Rusty Lake games quickly became my favorite series when I found them when searching for good escape type game. This entry has very refreshing new gameplay while honoring the games and storyline I love.

Excellent game but super short. I gave this five stars because it’s pretty awesome, easy enough to play with my kiddo but takes good communication. My only complaint is it’s way too short! For the price though ($3) it was awesome :) need way more chapters or maybe a prequel!!!

Wish it was longer 😩. Definitely buying a part 2 or a dlc of this

I love this game. I’ve played all the rusty lake games, and I love them. I didn’t have a friend to play with so I played it myself with my iPad and my fun and had so much fun. Thank you for the wonderful games!
