  • One of the BEST games ever Apr 28, 2020

    By Lou in Louisville
    No exaggeration either. The characters are endless, each unique and with their own special sounds, are the cutest of any game I’ve played, of course, after the characters in Samorost 3 - by the same developer. I can’t even describe in words how well this game is made. It boggles my mind that those developers, whose heads popped out of the jack-in-the-box, came up with the ideas in this game. It’s unlike any game I’ve ever seen or played. It’s so unique, imaginative, beautiful, creative, and I could go on and on. It took me all day to complete the game and it was so much fun the entire time. I laughed out loud so many times. I can’t get over how well done this game is!!! It’s THAT GOOD. This game (and Samorost 3) are my favorite games of all time and I highly recommend them if you are looking for a great game with hours of play time. I’ve played every game by Amanita and I’m eagerly awaiting Creaks. Thanks to the devs for making the absolute best games out there!

    Great design, great creativity applied while putting the game together, great to look at, good puzzles to wake those rusty corners of brain :D

    Can I just say that whoever came up with the idea/plot and visuals of this game are absolutely whole heartedly talented people!!!! The way you figure out the puzzles and the different worlds and different creatures... I could just go on and on. Figuring out the puzzles really put your brain to work while giving you a sense of actually playing a game at the same time. Wow. I definitely recommend it you guys. I bought the bundle pack and am currently on Machinarium, so Samorost will be last. Can’t wait to see more from these developers. (An under the sea version would be to die for, give me a cut if you use this idea please lol -no but seriously.) Ana

  • Best game I've played May 21, 2017

    By SamC2005
    I just finished the app games and wished they were more. This app really capture my attention, thought provoking and keep my desire to keep playing. The attention to detail animation, cool graphics, fun puzzles and strategy games keeps me playing and feel good about myself when I successfully attain each level. I'm not one who spends a lot of time on apps but this app is great! Even my 8yr old son loves it. It's definitely for all ages. More levels please .. I'll miss these little things of friends... woo hoo! Very nice creation and looking for forward to more apps from this company.

    I got this because I enjoyed Machinarium, but this game is just bizarre. The controls aren't great on mobile and the "puzzles" are really just guessing randomly until something works, not much logic to it. The visuals are nice I suppose. Overall I really don't get all the positive reviews. Really just boring and frustrating and I won't be finishing it, glad I got it for just $1.

  • Not for Me Feb 27, 2019

    By hAMImono
    I tried very hard to like this game. It is so visually appealing and seemed like it would be calm and lovely and fun. The first time I opened it, I was frustrated because I just didn’t understand what to do. I gave it three more tries on different days and got through a few levels but ultimately just kept going up and down the same branches feeling trapped . . . and that no option was left for me to move on. Frustrating. Many seem to like it so I must be missing something. I guess this game is not for me . . . deleted.

    I love Amanita Design games with my all-time favorite being Machinarium. So I bought this game and one other one offered by them, but they don't work on my Chromebook (Machinarium works fine). Emailed the developer and after several weeks they finally replied that they don't support running this game on a Chromebook (even though Chromebooks run Android apps and Machinarium works perfectly). Android Nougat is Android Nougat. It shouldn't be available for me to download if it doesn't work.

  • Super frustrating Nov 9, 2017

    By Allnamesartaken
    No instructions, no hints, end up running up and down the same brand 50 times. The creatures do next to impossible this one time and then are scared of their own shadows the next. I'm collecting keys and see a key but my monsters are scared of the scorpion and apparently only one of my creatures is useful, the rest are just there for moral support and would stand there and watch the useful on get eaten. I can't reason with them. I have buyers remorse.

    Funny, interesting at times, the duck part was good. I had just finished samorost 3 which was great and I also loved machinarium which I played a long time ago. I was a bit underwhelmed with this. Nevertheless, it was a quality game, with the amanita signature elements (attention to sounds and music and weird humour). The animations at the end of part 8 onwards were a bit zoomed and to the right of my screen, I have a redmi note 8 pro. Overall a trusted team, I buy their games happily.

  • Fascinating Jul 15, 2017

    By BelugaSnuggles
    Loved this game. It was fascinating and puzzling in a very good way. Only thing I could see being added is an into that explains what you are doing a little better. I was sort of confused at one point and stopped playing for nearly two years before I picked it back up again.

    Later edit: I bought the game and unfortunately it's not working at all (I'm using a Huawei P30 Pro). I wrote an email to the developer and it took some time to get a reply and they offered a refund. Unfortunately I was not able to play the game, so I only gave it a 4* rating overall, taking into consideration the feedback. Too bad it did not work. I played the Amanita's other games and they are great. I'm sure this one is also.

  • Amazing art, great gameplay! Jul 24, 2017

    By minsilvestre
    I loved the art style throughout this game! Everything gave you the feeling of being back in a childhood fairy tale. The gameplay was fantastic as well! Every puzzle was intuitive and interesting enough to keep me playing the game. All over a great game and a good time.

  • Cute Dec 14, 2017

    By Djdixhdnjakakdoekenjririfj
    It’s a cute, but somewhat lacking game. Atmosphere and art is phenomenal but gameplay is pretty bland. Not worth a ton of money; wait for a sale. Mechanarium is better imo. I suggest considering that instead, if you haven’t played it already.

  • Wait, where is my save? Mar 26, 2017

    By Dancer10903
    I was super excited to play this game but I think it needs more clear menu icons and choices. HOW DO I SAVE?? I got the game today and it seriously is such an amazing concept with beautiful graphics. I played until I was half way through finding the keys and then I went to do homework. I got back and I was back at the beginning! I really don't want this to happen again because that it one of the most frustrating things in a game. Also, the sounds of the characters are a bit loud. Overall, I want to play this game for as long as I can but I don't want to risk my save being lost. I'd really like some clarification on how to save or an update if it doesn't exist. That's why I'm giving it 4 starts for now. Great job!! EDITED: it's about a week or two later and honestly I'm so annoyed. I really want to play this whole game but I'm always sent back to the very beginning when I was at part 6. Can anyone help me maybe tell me why this is happening or can you guys maybe try to improve that? Once that is fixed I would love this game but right now it's just frustrating and I can't play because I know I'll be sent back again.

    Though I loved this game, the drawings, humor, etc I am stuck that even a walkthrough, that I have used too many times, I can't get past it, very frustrating , does not make sense, if it weren't for the walkthrough , I would have not have made it to the place I am stuck, having to do things over and over and over, so sad

  • Good game but how do I turn the sound off! Jun 9, 2017

    By Kmae888888
    Great game but I just want to turn off the sound! Cant find it anywhere!!! This will ultimately ruin the game for me if It is not possible. I like to listen to books while I play and this makes it impossible.

  • Interesting but frustrating Jan 7, 2015

    By Jk-Dubb
    I have enjoyed playing the game but can't past the second level (5 keys) because I don't have dexterity with my fingers. I have played the game for hours trying to get past that level. I have deleted the entire game off my system to start over 3 times and each time I get stuck in the same place. I really want to give this game a shot, but if I can't get past the singing birds, I think I will have to just delete the game altogether. The only reason I'm frustrated is because I know what needs to be done, but because of a disease, I'm unable to get my fingers to react the way I have to have them to win this level. Visually, this game is gorgeous - and the music is beautiful so far as well. I just hope I can continue playing!

    This would be a great app if there were continuous play. It gets stuck, I follow designers' advice to uninstall and reinstall, I start all over, it gets stuck again. Very frustrating.

  • Just bought it, already HATE it !!!!( !!! ) Jun 20, 2019

    By Chrstphre
    Another one of these extremely incomprehensible games with too much animation, zero logic & designed merely to frustrate The player into complete madness ! Every game should start off insanely easy to give The player The encouragement to continue to The levels where playing actually begins, instead of immediately urging them to quit. $10 already forgotten, deleting this monstrosity right now!

    By Janieword
    What game are you guys playing? This is terrible. It won’t do anything and there is no explanation of what in the world the game is about. I hate that I paid for nothing. Would be nice if the game actually did something. First board and nothing happens no matter where I tap. I want a refund!
