  • Fun, but too short and bad hint system Aug 4, 2019

    By MahewaJT
    This game has great graphics and I love the tone. The puzzles were interesting and generally well done. There are two main drawbacks for me. First, I think the game is too short given it’s price. Second, I think the hint system, which is crucial for a game like this, has a terrible flaw. Generally I don’t care that you have to play a mini game to access the walkthrough. The problem is that it shows you the walkthrough for the area you’re in, regardless of where you might be in the chain of puzzles. So you might have access to 6 or 7 areas and not be sure where to go next. You’ll have to go to each area, play the mini game, and hope there’s something you can actually do there. This also means that you will sometimes bypass the actual puzzle accidentally because the walkthrough for the area you’re in just has the final solution to another area’s puzzle.

    Artwork, music, ambience was fantastic. Only thing which I didn't like was that there is no way to cancel an action. Like if I accidentally clicked on a point where I didn't want the player to go then it will stop only when it has reached the end of that action. There were few quips like this which made the gameplay a little frustrating at times. The hint and walkthrough system was very good.
  • Best Mobile Game Review Dec 4, 2020

    By Knfprty134
    Firstly, I’ve owned this mobile game for many years now, and I deeply recommend it. Here’s why. The visual art and animations are all hand drawn and portrays a beautiful world of robots living in a giant mechanical city. Clearly the artists were very passionate. The story is short, as is the game. But it’s a story fit for that world. The puzzles are the one of the most impressive parts of the game. Each and every puzzle is incredibly unique as well as increasingly difficult. The game will make your brain turn. You have to play the puzzles to see what I mean. Pair this with one of the most captivating soundtracks in that I’m wholly convinced of this games’ setting. It can’t be described except but having you experience it along side every other aspect of the game simultaneously. And that’s the beauty of this game. The game itself. It’s a masterpiece in my review. There’s an overflowing amount of art is this game in how every different piece of art (graphics, music, puzzles, story) meshes together perfectly to create a great game. I’ve played it many times and still have fun trying to figure out the puzzles. I would gladly pay more for this game to support the developers and artists. So for this price, there’s not even a question. Buy it. Experience it. Why not?

    This is honestly one of, if not the best game I've ever played on my phone. Everything is really well done, the story, the graphics and especially the small details and animations that keep you immersed in the game. The price really is friendly when you consider the effort given to the developing of the game. Truly an amazing job.

    This is a good puzzle solving game. A little hard to be honest , but they provide a hint page. However They literally show you how to solve all the puzzles step by step on the hint page, Kind of takes away from the game in my opinion. But on the flip side there are puzzles with zero hints what so ever, so u have to access the walkthrough page if u really want to move solve them . Also to acces the walk through is annoying , i played that mini game like 3 dozens times. I doubt you can complete this game on the 1st go without using the walk through. Even tho the hints are vague at times. I tried solving all the puzzles without the hints i got pretty far in each puzzle , but i got stuck at the end in a lot of them. And its always for the same reason, i overlooked an item i missed (because items blend in to the surroundings way too good, need to give em a shine of sparkle) i cant recall how many times i walked passed something i needed because it was camoflaged into the background, lol. Good game. Def recomend samorost 3 as well. Puzzles are a little easier to solve there.

  • Even Better Than I expected... Jun 24, 2019

    By jacobyte84
    It’s kind of difficult for me to pull the trigger on a game that costs money these days. There are so many free apps and games out there that I rarely see any value in it. This game is different. I was immediately drawn to this one by its beautiful artwork and animation. It’s like a steampunk-style creation with incredible graphics, a neat little story somehow told with no language, and scores of puzzles that you have to solve with virtually your own brains (though hints and blueprints can be acquired if you really get stuck). My six year-old daughter and I have a blast huddling together over my phone playing together and working out the puzzles with tiny clues often overlooked, and the story progresses at such a steady pace that you just can’t help but get absorbed by it. I would buy this game again and again without hesitation and I would recommend it to anyone.

    One of the gold nuggets of mobile games. Some puzzles require you to think little harder, use the hint or even watch a walkthrough video, but it's nothing too crazy. It has really nice feel to it, that atmosphere is what makes it such a great game. Definitely worth 5 stars.

  • Best game ever; frustrating on iPhone May 7, 2017

    By Mithrandir1
    I've been doing puzzle games since Zork; I've probably played hundreds. I love a good story and difficult solving. Machinarium is my favorite game of all time--killer music and environmental audio, gorgeous visuals, clever puzzling (the garden entrance puzzle may be the best ever). Plus, it has walkthroughs if you just get stumped and can't figure out where to go next. I've played through this probably four times, but always on a computer. On a tiny iPhone 6 screen, it's nearly impossible to see every clue or manipulate every control. The bomb puzzle nearly requires a magnifying glass, and several others had such specific click zones it took dozens of tries for an otherwise easy puzzle. This is really not the fault of the developers--they've built a lush, rich environment, densely packed with visual clues. There's probably no way to make the work on an iPhone. iPad, maybe. Computer, definitely.

    Glitch in the game? During the stage of the game when i am searching for oil to put in the oil can for the wheelchair bound robot, i enter the doorway next to the musical band but i am glitched to the wrong side of of the bridge. I cannot then cross the bridge without slipping on the oil and falling off it thus restarting all of the puzzles i had already completed.
  • LOVED. until... May 13, 2017

    By Outtatune...
    this was a solid 5 star until the arcade level. ok, the spider game to unlock hints was retro and cut, but having the *entire game* riding on how well i can play space invaders without a joystick has totally ruined it for me. (also having the game on the left and controls on the right is just poor design. have been killed wayyyy too many times because i was looking at the arcade game screen on the left and missed the button conveniently located on the opposite side of the screen.) so, yeah, if i wanted to play hours of space invaders i'd go back to the 80's and get usable controls! am going to see if my husband can beat it because i've invested so much time, but there should be an option to skip this nonsense, or play a different game, or an actual puzzle, or find a coin someone else dropped, or pretty much *anything* but this...was excited to buy your other games, but now, not so much...

  • Looks great, but some real problems Feb 12, 2018

    By Canavansbackyard
    On the plus side of the ledger, I absolutely loved this game's graphics and found the storyline cute and engaging. Machinarium is, however, plagued by some significant problems. Game play is occasionally hampered by poor touch screen control — the pleasure derived by puzzle games lies in their ability to stimulate the mind; they shouldn’t rely on the user tapping exactly the right pixel at exactly the right millisecond, as too frequently happens in this game. More critically, gameplay can be completely blocked by any of various bugs. My own progress came to a shrieking halt about three-quarters of the way through (not an inconsiderable investment of my time) after encountering one such documented bug.

    Great game! However, every time I switched apps or turned the screen off, the touch controls stopped working. A cursor appeared and it seemed like the game thought I was using mouse and keyboard/a gamepad. Restarting the game fixed the problem though. OnePlus 7, Android 11.

  • True work of art! Oct 15, 2019

    By GadgetMojo
    Beautiful concept, all 3 games are wonderful in their own way. I haven’t tried Chuchel yet but I’m betting it’ll be just as good. Machinarium is probably my favorite of the three, but only by a small margin. These guys are so talented, each game is completely unique in feel, sound and graphics. Never seen anything like it. Like a good film, they create a complete “feel” and immersive experience. Some puzzles are difficult, but it feels like you’re actually solving the puzzles (which are often a game within a game) with your mind and not just eyes like most “puzzle” games. “The Room” series are definitely worth a try but these Amanita games are a whole different territory. A joy for/in every sense. Thank you Amanita people!! :-)

  • Awesome, but.. Jul 29, 2020

    By Magcayers
    I love the game, it's super cute, the puzzles can be really hard to figure out what you're supposed to do sometimes but the walkthrough is helpful. Only problem is I can't finish the game because the radio in the big tower won't play the song, I can't hear it even when I wear headphones, only the background music. I've watched walkthroughs so I know I'm doing the right thing but the sound won't play and also when I go to use the little instrument with the keys outside they don't push down, and if they do I can only push them down once and then they get stuck there, stopping me from being able to play the notes. Gah! It's awesome in every other aspect. EDIT: I closed out of the app completely and reopened it, that seemed to fix it. Yay! Ending is kinda short tho I wish they went back and saved that little alien guy or whoever he was

  • Battery glitch Mar 17, 2017

    By The end of my game
    Hello developers. I found a marvelous glitch that was broke my game completely and forced me to restart. If you never get the money and just continue forward through the game without buying the battery you get stuck in between the garden and the guard at the door past it. He needs a batter for his kid and I can't go back to get it. I didn't save because I didn't know you could. This is mostly my fault but I would bet money on this not being the first time this has ever happened to someone. Thanks for listening please fix this story trap. Also I'd like to say I love this game and please continue development

  • Breathtaking graphic work Jul 1, 2018

    By Catbrain1951
    The game has some bugs that are likely to result in the end of the game you are playing, although the smooth, detailed graphics in themselves make it an enjoyable game. If you are satisfied only with the reputation of completing it, you will probably not want to get this game until it has been tweaked on a number of the levels. If you play it for the enjoyment of the creativity of the graphics and the challenge of each complex part, then you are likely to love the ride. Just be warned of likely speed bumps until later versions are released.

    This was such an awesome change from the typical games online! The art work is fantastic and fun! The details give something new to see ever time you play it, which is part of the challenge trying to find usable things in the midst! Steampunk admirable!!! I was addicted to playing to the point if sadness when I beat it. Their love story and adventures NEED to live on in new episodes! You would have a devoted player here if their story continued! I'm cravymore levels!!!
  • Too many bugs Feb 6, 2018

    By temp.qiqqqo
    I’ve heard a lot good reviews before I downloaded it to my iPad. Then I found that maybe the game itself has a unique style, but the experience of playing it is terrible. And I’m sure it’s not my device’s problem since mine is the new iPad Pro and I’ve played many other games while none of them have any issue. 1. The music and sound effects disappeared for many times and restart the game won’t even fix it 2. The whole screen got stuck when I tried to solve a puzzle and went back to normal once I stopped trying. So I have to give up and delete this game because I couldn’t move forward anymore. 3. The controls are very difficult. If you want to use some of the equipments you’ve obtained, you have to place them PRECISELY where they belong and sometimes even try several times for it to work. I still think this is a good game and I assume it might work better on PC or Mac. But please fix these bugs in this iOS version. Look forward to seeing its update.
  • Beautiful world in artwork and concept Jul 16, 2017

    By Klars622
    I wish this game was an animated movie or short and not just a game. A robot city with thieves, an underdog hero, and a love story is wonderful. That said, as s puzzle game, I found Machinarium to be too difficult. Puzzles come in two forms: First is the set of steps you must preform as the hero. Walking around the city, collecting items and performing tasks. These are never obvious (hence a puzzle) but to the extreme. The discoverability of what's possible is frustrating; you end up touching everything in view to see what it does or doesn't do. This gets old quickly. The second form are the mini puzzle games you must complete. Zero instruction is provided and sometimes it feels like your reading the developer's mind to know what to do. I wish this game had been developed with variable difficulty in mind.
  • Not my Favorite by Amanita... Mar 17, 2021

    By Hanlin
    I loved Creaks and Pilgrims, but I did not like Machinarium! The puzzles were way too difficult and hard to figure out on my own and the mini game hint system got so monotonous I found myself wanting to delete the game without even finishing! There were some parts of the puzzles that I don’t see how anyone could figure it out without the walkthrough or being one of the designers. Who knows, maybe I’m just incompetent, but Idid finish the game and then deleted it to never play again! I’m not sure I want to pay for any other Amanita games, but I will say this: the graphics and story are one of a kind and beautifully done! Just take it easy on the complexity of the challenges for those of us more casual players.

    this was a solid 5 star until the arcade level. ok, the spider game to unlock hints was retro and cut, but having the *entire game* riding on how well i can play space invaders without a joystick has totally ruined it for me. (also having the game on the left and controls on the right is just poor design. have been killed wayyyy too many times because i was looking at the arcade game screen on the left and missed the button conveniently located on the opposite side of the screen.) so, yeah, if i wanted to play hours of space invaders i'd go back to the 80's and get usable controls! am going to see if my husband can beat it because i've invested so much time, but there should be an option to skip this nonsense, or play a different game, or an actual puzzle, or find a coin someone else dropped, or pretty much *anything* but this...was excited to buy your other games, but now, not so much...

    Sweet game, but ugh, the controls on Android are too frustrating. I want a mental challenge, not operational frustration.

    On the plus side of the ledger, I absolutely loved this game's graphics and found the storyline cute and engaging. Machinarium is, however, plagued by some significant problems. Game play is occasionally hampered by poor touch screen control — the pleasure derived by puzzle games lies in their ability to stimulate the mind; they shouldn’t rely on the user tapping exactly the right pixel at exactly the right millisecond, as too frequently happens in this game. More critically, gameplay can be completely blocked by any of various bugs. My own progress came to a shrieking halt about three-quarters of the way through (not an inconsiderable investment of my time) after encountering one such documented bug.
