More than a point and click game, but shorter than a traditional puzzle game, Mechinarium relies heavily on its stylized graphics to woo the player. The puzzles are less intuitive than most games, and the creators chose not to use “easy pixels” to highlight important items. This made Mechinarium more challenging than most. It was worth the effort. The story comes through near the end, and I’m glad I stuck with it. Be prepared to think outside the box.

I adore Amanita Design's games, this one is no exception.

Machinarium is a wonderful example of non-verbal story telling, telling a heart warming story through imagery and game mechanics. Sometimes the puzzles are a bit obtuse in a standard point 'n' click kind of way, so I will admit to looking up walkthroughs a couple of times but that might be my own failing.

I can't post much about the story without spoilers, so I'll just recommend that you get immersed in the wonderful visuals and try to play this in one sitting if you have the time because it's quite lovely.

This game is more like a puzzle game than a point and click adventure game.

- Story
- Puzzles
- To open inventory was a little buggy

+ Good art and good mechanical art
+ Really like the point and click of it where logic is the idea

Nice art style but the game is made in Flash, it really should have been re-released using a proper game engine by now.

+ Charming and incredibly well realized art style
+ Many character that, while voiceless, ooze personality
+ Great soundtrack
+ The puzzles are mostly engaging and well realized

+- Positioning and manipulating the protagonist is an interesting mechanic. While in some parts this is used appropriately there are times when it feels like pointless busywork, and you'd rather have the character just walk and reach by himself when you click a hotspot.

- Some of the puzzles are too self-contained, it feels like they just took a puzzle from a magazine and dropped it there

2 years it took me to complete this game, without cheating. Bought: 12/25/2012 - Finished: 9/25/2014
It is the best puzzle/adventure game I have ever played so far. The music, sounds, and art style of the game are all professionally done. The story isn’t much, but enough to keep me satisfied throughout. The only con i can think of is the handling is sometimes floppy. I recommend this game to those who have a lot of headache medicine, and those who have a fetish for puzzles like I do. Good Job, I hope the developer continues his work. Overall, 9.5/10

This is a fantastic adventure game. Fun story, amazing artwork, great puzzles, and no hand holding. Highly recommended.

A really pretty and charming point-and-click adventure with puzzles which are tough without just being stupid and illogical. The's hand-drawn steampunk art is really great to look at, and the thought bubbles instead of speech make for no reading in the entire game other than signs in-universe, and the hint system is pretty cool, giving first a basic hint then giving you a full solution after playing a minigame - however I'd still recommend using an online walkthrough as 1) the minigame is rather slow and 2) the minigame-like puzzles, however fun, will certainly get you stuck the most, and are not detailed in the in-game walkthrough.

If you like point and click adventure games this is definitly worth playing.
The atmosphere and flow of the game is great. The story is good. The puzles aren't to hard, nor do they not make sense at time.
I got about 5 hours of gameplay.

Im a huge fan of point and click adventure, I thorougly enjoyed this game as it reminded me of gamestyle I enjoyed most grwoing up. Graphics and sound/music is stunning, hoping to see more games from this developer. However i felt the end was lacking a bit, still definately worth playing

A funny game with a good plot, creative puzzles and a few tricks up its sleeve. Honestly, this was a random surprise, but it turned out to be a good one.
