Definitivelly recommended game. Interesting story without a line of dialogue. Everything is done trough animations and it's pretty obvious what game wants you to do.

But the puzzles, on the other hand, some of them border on intelligence test: someone will find them easy, some hard or even impossible.

Graphics are pretty good and suit the game perfectly altho it's a flash game.

Soundtrack is something worth paying extra. You do have a couple of songs in game files (.ogg if i'm not mistaken) which i listened to even when i finished the game. And i did it twice.

Story(potential spoiler) is about two robots who get separated and boy needs to find the girl. I think that's spoiler free.

Try it out, and i think you won't regret it.

Nice game, but unfortunately no Linux version.
And looks like it is written in Flash. Why would you want to do this?

Nice art style, but be warned this game is Flash based.

The interface and gameplay is slow and clunky. When you right-click the mouse you get a jarring Flash player context menu, and your save game files get stored in a temp cache folder... so if you clear your history, or run some cleanup utility, you will lose your progress!

I would love to see this game polished up and re-released under a proper game engine.

I'm going to recommend this game, but only barely.

Pros:
- Absolutely beautiful. One of the best games I've ever looked at
- Fun aesthetic, neat world that they built, characters are enjoyable
- Logic mini-games inside the game were super fun (but I like that sort of thing)

Cons:
- Puzzles were completely unintuitive, and that almost killed the game for me. I like not using hints in puzzle games, even if it takes a long time. Hints (or a detailed walkthrough which I resorted to in the end) are straight up mandatory.

OH! Use the cat on the digeridoo! DUH! (Actual thing in game.)

In the end, I'd still say but it; it's totally worth the experience, but sweet merciful crap, find a walkthrough.

Adendum: After another playthrough, I've come to like it a lot more. I just had to get over my frustration. It's awesome; totally get it. Oh, get the bundle with Botanicula; that game was just fantastic.

When there are so many much better modern adventure games there is no reason to buy junk like this, no matter how cheap the price.

Puzzles are nosensical. Lots of random clicking everywhere on the screen. Problems with save games.

At this point this game has been critically aproved but I feel like leaving a positive review anyway. Normally I'm not a fan of point and click adventure games but Machinarium has sold me on the idea of them. Great art design, captivating world, and imersive story that unfolds without even a single word being spoken all build something greater than the sum of their parts. If you like point and click adventure games Machinarium will make a great addition to your collection; If you don't it might just change your mind.

This is a very cute and clever little puzzle game. It's not long but at $10 I think it's worth it. If you ever get lost or confused the walkthrough is IN the game. You have to play a little 8bit shooter game to get it which I thought was very cool. I found this game through StumbleUpon and liked the demo enough to buy it.

This game is amazing! The soundtrack is really well done, as is the art style. The puzzles are challenging but not impossible and the game has a hint system built in...a lovely little story too. Can't reccommend this gem enough

the game has a great bit of charm to it, the puzzles are fun but challenging, the music is a real treat in certain parts of the game and sets a great mood, but the art style is really what sells the game. cute and quirky but some how also dark and mysterious at times, if you enjoy puzzle games or strange cute things you will love this game.

Not the best adventure or game of this genre (to me, the best still remain The Day of the tentacle), but definetly a worthful experience, following the stream of "the neverhood chronicles" in terms of interface and simplicity (unfortunatley, nobody has been brave or crazy enough to do another game using clay).
Puzzles are kinda straightforward but never usual.

If your looking for a mind bending puzzle, here it is! This game i've played hours on end is truly fit for a portal player. With insanely different graphics from portal, there is still a puzzling aray of awsomness. If your on a look out for a interesting, mind blowing indie , Machinarium is for you.
