This, has to be the most compelling story I've ever played through in a game. One of the best, most charmingly clever, point & click titles I've ever played, a masterpiece of a game. The rustic hand drawn graphics are genuinely exquisite and really help disguise the click areas of this game. Features a really touching twisted fate mecha-folkstory, of a young robot living in a steam-punk dystopian wasteland, trying to save an enslaved princess robot. The only dialog between the characters are small animated scenes inside thought bubbles, which I think is a cool way help tell a story without literal or verbal ques. The music is beautiful, very original and thought provoking, it really helped set the tone. You'll come across the occasional puzzle here and there and they're are some tough ones, but none are too frustrating. Unlike many titles in this genre, Machinarium consistently had me at an "aHa!" moment, great game 10/10

Just WOW! If you like a good adventure game with lots of things to explore, some hard puzzles and beautiful artwork, then Machinarium is your game.

Without a single spoken word the story line is set very well in a world where machines have feeling too. The ambiance is amazing and the puzzles very original. You just gotta love the main character and the creative ways he finds to defeat the bad guys. The humor in the game is great too.

For me this game could have lasted for several hours (days, weeks!) more, without ever boring me. The game also offers a unique hint system, so there's no need to search the internet to be able to advance in case you're stuck. I recommend not using it too often though, because the game is much more fun by solving everything yourself.

If machines ever take over the world, I sure hope this is what it will look like. The downside? Maybe the fact that there's no Steam achievements. Really can't think of anything else. This game is a must-have & must-play!

Excellent point and click adventure! Artwork is beautiful too! The game runs like if was built for the web instead of being installed in a PC so the only options you have are screen size and sound but it run fine regardless of your PC hardware.

Machinarium, игра от именитой чешской студии Amanita Design, имейным вдохновителем и основателем которой является небезысвестный Якуб Дворски, автор маленькой, но очень "домашней" и доброй дилогии Samorost.

Главным действующим лицом на этот раз является забавный робот, имени которого мы, правда, не знаем, да и какое это имеет значение... Жители "заводного города", из которого был изгнан наш маленький друг, общаются на своем языке, но не спешите думать, что для понимания местных обитетелей вам придется выучивать местный алфавит и грамоту. Остроумные анимированные вставки сделают все за вас. Сюжет довольно прост, но от этого не менее интересен. В городе N объявилась шайка бандитов, которых хлебом не корми - дай что-нибудь сломать, испортить или украсть. Вор должен сидеть в тюрьме! Хулиганы должны получить по заслугам, так ведь? Кроме того, у нашего героя с ними личные счеты...

Machinarium все же квест старой закалки, с пиксель-хантингом, инвентарем и комбинированием предметов. Другое дело, что игра не слишком длинная, так что от переизбытка всевозможной всячины брюхо главного героя, куда тот складывает все найденное, страдать не будет. А вот некоторые задачки вкупе с разнообразными мини-играми заставят не раз и не два почесать затылок, а то и крепко призадуматься. К счастью, авторы избавили нас от утомительного чтения гайдов и поиска прохождения на просторах Интернета. Система подсказок встроена в саму игру, правда, для получения доступа к "солюшену" необходимо сыграть в простенькую аркаду.

Machinarium - добрая, забавная, уютная адвенчура с фирменным визуальным стилем, причудливыми героями и, конечно же, счастливым финалом.

Machinarium is an adventure game created by well-known indie developer studio Amanita Design located in Czech Republic and directed by Jakub Dvorsky, author of peculiar Samorost dilogy.

This time we take the role of small, funny and cute robot and even though we don't know his name and origins it doesn't matter at all. Denizens of mechanical city speak their own language but don't think you'll have to learn their ABC or grammar in order to understand, the game did the hard job for you. Witty and funny animated cutsceses uncover the details and let you know what the characters wish to say. Storyline is simple, yet quite interesting! We got three gangmembers who have always been a pain in the ♥♥♥♥ of law-abiding citizens, stealing, robbing, extorting... These must be punished for their evil deeds. Besides, our protagonist has it private this time - his lady is in danger...

Machianrium is an old-timer kind of adventure with pixel-hunting, inventory and item combining. On the other hand, the game ain't that long and robot's iron belly where he keeps the stuff he finds won't be overburdened. Can't be sure about your brain overload though, thanks to some puzzles being quite tricky and lots of mini-games included. Thankfully, authors thought it through and introduced a hint system. All we gotta do is to play short side-scroll shooter to unlock it.

Machinarium is kind, cute, cozy and stylish adventure game set in oddly-wonderful world, tenanted by grotesque characters and finalized by happy-ending.
