  • 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.

    I gotta say, Samorost 3 absolutely blows this game out of the water. The puzzles in this game are more obtuse, less inspired, and less fun. That being said, still a 4/5. Art is beyond beautiful, theres so much heart and soul in these little robots. Animation is fantastic, so smooth and full of life (ironically since nothing in this game is alive). Its worth $5 for the spectacle alone

  • 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?

    The music, art, puzzles and hints in this point & click adventure game are for the most part amazing. The three problems I have with it are: 1 - Some things you interact with look like they're a part of the background too much. It's good for immersion but not for a puzzle game. 2 - There's an annoying high pitched noise in the elevator. I had to turn off the sound for that part. 3 - Controls and hitboxes are pretty bad. This is what makes the first issue problematic. Definitely worth the money.

    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.

    There's a bug in the game. The robocat after I snatched its tail and it jumped off the roof, it was NOT electrocuted on the iron fence. I have already solved the circuit puzzle and I can hear the buzzing sound. There's electric current on the fence because I got electrocuted when I touched it, but the robocat just ran over it. I know I did the steps right, I even checked the walkthroughs on YouTube to see if I missed anything. This is frustrating because I can't move forward. 😔

  • 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...

    There's little to no actual plot and the game itself is honestly too confusing, but the walkthrough "book" is just as annoying to use because you have to do a mini game almost everytime to even use it. I finished the game completely but I'm just disappointed.

    Non-functional app, with refund request made immediately, in less than 30 days, upon discovery that a glitch barred the game from moving forward. No refund issued, inexcusable considering that the developer is aware from other users. It's not understandable why this wasn't taken care of.

  • 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.

  1. Use your brain to solve puzzles in this award winning indie game that will put your wits to the test
  2. Challenge yourself by helping Josef the robot save his beloved, Berta, from the Black Cap Brotherhood gang
  3. Beautiful graphics and soundscape are brought to you by the same creators of Samorost, Botanicula, and CHUCHEL

    I loved this game on my PC, the drawings and music are beautiful. Puzzles interesting and wornderful. However, an app keeps shutting down every single time when a cat chases out the mouse from street musicians pipe... This happened already 5times and it happens exactly after this move.. It's such a shame, hope it could be fixed After re-installing the game bug was fixed and I could enjoy the game fully. Very intersting and enjoyable game!

  • 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.

    The game has unique artstyle. Levels are built around story which is interesting to follow how it unfolds. There is not only main character but also many others that appear through story oftenly. This is not only a puzzle, but great adventure game. Now when it comes to puzzles they are kind of ok. Some parts are weird and confusing, however puzzles are a lot better than puzzles in Samorost 3.

    Cool game, but I don't think it was designed for a phone. Can't see some of the puzzles and some items meant to be picked up are almost invisible. Try on a tablet or laptop.
  • 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.

    Way too hard. I'm a seasoned gamer and love point and click but this takes the piss. Got a part wrong where you have to construct the radio to give to the wrench. I didn't Inspect the drain before giving him the radio. Can't go back so have to start over again. Can't be fuc#ed!

  • 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.

    Sorry to be negative. Cool haunting graphics, music that is evocative, but not a whole lot of control. By the second scene, there was pretty much nothing happening - I tried to extend the robot to be taller, and nothing happened. I pointed to indicate movement, but nothing happened. So I'm just tapping around on the screen randomly, hoping to accidentally trigger the robot to do whatever is next in its script. Not exactly a puzzle game, as I'm not really thinking or controlling. Pixel 4a 5g.
