Amazing game! took me about 8 hours to beat. I love the graphics and the music some parts were very hard but I got through them, I didn't like the ending a lot kinda felt like it could have used more but I give this a 9/10!

This game has very original challenges that are not too difficult, in a wonderful atmosphere. The likeable protagonist puzzles its way through an interesting city to save the day and get back with his robot friend. Very much recommended.

I got it when it was on sale, I actually feel guilty for not paying the full price, such awesomeness. It took me a well 5 hours to beat it, I figured 90% of the steps by myself. I wanted to keep playing even more escenerios after the ending, although that is a solid A+ ending though, so sweet.

Great puzzle game that I beat in about 5 hours. The puzzles take some thinking and I enjoyed myself the whole time I was playing it. One or two puzzles I skipped by using a walkthrough because I was playing it just for fun and didn’t want to get stuck past a couple of minutes of trying.

10/10

The game was pretty short. I have under 6 hours on it. It was on sale and I feel the $4 was worth it. I enjoyed the style of the game, but needed to use the in game guide a lot. I was finally getting the hang of it but then the game was over. Some puzzles were tricky but if you think through them you should be ok. Overall an enjoyable afternoon!

A beautiful adventure. Mellow music, beautiful art and the hint system is very smart. It's a tough game but the fact that the puzzles are room by room makes it feel less punishing than many other point&click games. Well worth the purchase.

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
