  • 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!

    The best of all Amanita work so far. The objectives are clear, puzzle are killer, yet, guides you just enough so that you can figure most of them out by then. The visual are great! Need a tablet to fully enjoy them though. That's just the nature of phones these days, we are just gonna learn to accept some things (I don't want my phone to be any bigger than a Galaxy Note please!). That's NOT a critic though!Just an observation. But, if you hate Amanita games back then, it won't change your mind.

    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

  • Please make more! Dec 28, 2017

    By Plumsteadplayer
    I've had this game for over a year but this is the first time I persisted and got all the way thru. Yay, me! Now I'm sorry it's over. It is absolutely charming and one I'd happily share with my grandkids. Seniors like me aren't too keen on the mostly gruesome and gory adventure/escape games. Amanita seems to get that with Machinarium and Samorost. The challenges are pretty intuitive in what you need to do, although some walkthrough help was needed to see just how to do. But all are doable. Will return to this someday in the future. But please make more! And can you make Samorost 1 & 2 playable on iPads, please?

    Awesome game. Art direction is incredible and the puzzles are fun. Music is great too! I recommend headphones but keep in mind you might some puzzles require trial and error and there are parts where that results is repeated sound effects. Can get just a little too tough in places but those are few and far between. Amanita are friggin' great!

    I want to rate this game higher as loved it on steam. No full screen support is a bummer though I don't like the big black bars on the sides. Checked the full screen apps menu to try and force it, the game doesn't show up in that menu

    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.

    My son and I have been working through Aminata's collection. This game is cute but the puzzles are definitely more random than Machinarium. You spend a lot of time clicking on things until you find something that works. Not as interesting as Machinarium or as cute as Cuchel. Skip it.

  • 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.

    Game is breathtakingly beautiful but unfortunately it doesn't work on brand new and updated Android (Samsung s10). It crashes on a screen with little spider (Part 2). I've tried to reinstall it but with no luck.

    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.

    Decent game, not as good as machinarium. but game locked up loading last level and now can't progress. Don't really want to uninstall and replay the whole thing again.
  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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!

    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!
