If you find yourself stuck, check out our Cube Escape: The Cave strategy guide for help!
1. Time Is On Your Side
There is no need to rush things when playing this game. The goal is to complete all the puzzles but there is no timer in each puzzle and there is no reward for finishing any of them quickly. The game is geared towards playing for the sake of experience so enjoy the mystery and play at your own pace. If you are struggling to complete a puzzle, take a breather and come back to it later. You might just need a break in order to get a fresh set of eyes and see the puzzle from a different perspective.
2. Check Everything Out
The simplicity of the graphics adds to the complexity of the game because it becomes more difficult to figure out which parts of the puzzle are clickable. Clicking on an interactive piece will either solve the puzzle or have an effect that will get you on the path to solving the puzzle. Since you can’t tell which pieces are interactive, just click on everything you can and hope to get lucky.
3. Taking Items With You
Some of the interactive pieces in the game are actually items that you can carry with you. These may be useful in solving puzzles in other rooms of the cave but there are also those that do nothing. Since you only have a limited number of slots for items, it would be best to pick things up only when you have an idea what to use them for. You can always pick them up later on once you know where to use them.
4. Double Back On Solved Cases
Interactive pieces don’t only affect things in the same room. There are times that they also trigger things in other rooms. This is why you should always take time to check back on previous rooms to see if anything was triggered in them. Sometimes there would be additional puzzles to solve as a result of a trigger from a different room.
5. Checking Out Guides
If you have been playing the game for a while and are itching to find out all the answers, then you may opt to read a walkthrough of the game. There are several walkthroughs available online even if the game is fairly new. This tip is not for everyone since other players prefer to experience the puzzles while others want answers fast.
