One of the best point-and-click adventure games I've seen, along with Monkey Island series, The Longest Journey series, Syberia series, Broken Sword series, Discworld, Full Thortle, and Broken Age (I may have forgot some.). Brilliant art design and story, with a futuristic sci-fi touch. Definitely a must-play if you enjoy this genre...

Note: Do not make the mistake of comparing Machinarium with Botanicula or Samorost series (which are the other point-and-click adventures of Amanita Design), and coming to a conclusion about Machinarium. Trust me, they are as different as possible.

I'm not really a fan of point and click adventure games but this game was fun to play through it. The whole game revolves around you solving puzzles to continue forward. Some of the puzzles were a challenge to solve but when you do solve it without hints you feel really smart lol.

What got me to buy this game was the art. And my I was impressed. The music is also fantastic.
I got this game on HumbleBundle, but if I didn't, I would tell my past self to buy this game FULL PRICE.
Totally worth it. Entertaining point and click adventure game.
I had so much fun playing it.

8/10

One of the best Point-and-Click Adventures ever. I love the hand-drawn artwork of every scene (at leastI think it's hand-drawn). But what I love about Machinarium is the storyline, it keeps you going and you just want to see what's in the next scene. Highly reccomended and a good game to play offline.

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 to 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
