I'm writing a review for this now because I know the 3rd is coming sometime next year. I absolutely love EVERYTHING that Amanita games comes out with. Despite how short this game is, every minute is a fantastic experience. Everything is so charming and so much heart is put into everything they do. Definitely recommend everything from Amanita.

Wish it was longer so that i could have played more! It is a short game but quirky, funny, addictive and visually sweet. Great buy when it's on sale.

Short version: 73%
Samorost 2 has astonishing art style and fun puzzle/adventure mechanics, but it is too short even for the budget price range.

Long version:
Amanita Design, in a sense, is a one–trick pony company that makes surreal, textless, and speechless point ‘n’ click puzzle games. Luckily, said trick is a seemingly endless imagination, reflected in each of their products; Samorost 2 (the sequel to their first game which is freely available on their web page) being no exception.

This incredibly short room-by-room type point ‘n’ click game has an almost childishly simple story: the protagonist’s dog gets kidnapped, and he travels to another asteroid to save his pet. But Samorost 2 isn’t really about the plot; the real content is the creativity. There is more of it present in the alien landscapes (and all the little details they are filled with) than in many large-budget AAA titles. And Samorost 2 manages to present it all under an hour, leading to a really concentrated experience. Sure, it has its price too, but if you like games a little more on the artistic side, then Amanita delivers yet again.

Samorost 2 is pretty cool. People will go on and on about it, out-snobbing each other with cries of BURRR THIS IS A FLASH GAME IT SHOULD HAVE BEEN ON NEWGROUNDS, REAL GAMES FOR HARDCORE GAMERS ONLY PLEASE!!!!, but ignore them. They're dumb.

I love the way Amanita Design makes their games - a lot of love clearly went into the worldbuilding. You're a little man in his PJs exploring floating mushrooms that have been uprooted from the ground and left in space! Your spaceship is made out of a discarded can of weenies! There's a sewage tank and the water stains look like a pastoral farmscape! So many little beautiful details that are worth the price of admission alone.

I'm not so much a fan of the puzzle-solving. Most of the puzzles are fine and are nice little breaks from the art, but sometimes they are a bit of a pain when trying to decipher context clues in a small Flash window. (FYI, this game was released ten years ago and it holds up well, though it's hard to see things sometimes.) Sometimes, there's areas that you need to click on that weren't clickable before and the game doesn't bother to tell you whether or not they're activated. It's not a perfect system, but it's fine.

Samorost 2 is uneven but overall fine. If you want something with more difficulty, check out their games Machinarium and Botanicula. There will be a sequel for this one coming out very soon, too.

Great little point & click adventure with some awesome art design. Cool puzzles to figure out that won't stop you from enjoying the short little story. Game can be beaten fairly quickly but definitely worth playing at least once. After playing this I'm really looking forward to the third game.
