While I quite like some of the artistic style, this is not a point and click adventure game. You just move your cursor around the screen until you find something you can click on. Couldn't recommend it. Great music though.

The first two Samorosts were my favorite games growing up. I played them countless times and never tired of them. They still hold up incredibly well, probably because of their innovatively designed (sometimes mildly disturbing) backgrounds and the puzzles that feel fresh every time I experience them. Even when I know exactly what to do after my thousandth play, I'm excited to push slugs around and mix questionable drinks for intergalactic cab drivers.

It's a short point and click puzzle game that's more about the artwork than the puzzles, what more to say?

Recommended, but buy it on sale because it's less than an hours gameplay and it doesn't scale to modern widescreen displays.

Holy balls sack mom, this gaym is awsome. Straight through, it is fun as hell and never so difficult that it feels cheep like most point-and-click adventure games. Awsome art style and so much fun all the way through. Can't agree with default price, but on sale this is an amazing value.

You play an white pyjama suite dressed hero who has to rescue his dog with his tin rocket can and get home again.

Short, nice, cute, weird, charming characters, story, graphics and sounds..
Fore- and background fauna & flora are sometimes interactive.
Puzzles are solved by scanning the area for interactive locations, items & creatures, picking them up & combining them with other interactive elements.

Some of the elements are sometimes very small to detect & easily missed.
Level codes instead of saves.
Replayability.
Short.

It's like those wonderous & adventurous stories you read/heard as a kid, with heroes & sweet sidekicks you learned to love. Special. Sweet. Guaranteed it will sometimes turn a smile on your face. Highly recommended at a sale.

Played for 1.4 hours so far and am completely hooked! The point and click cause and effect type game play gets you using your head a bit. It's not too difficult and the puzzles are fun with a bit of comedy. Really like the odd art work too!

Samorost 2 is gorgeously whimsical. From the character designs and animations to the landscapes that range from what appears to be grunge sewers to a Lewis Carrol like forest. The narrative, to rescue your stolen dog, is formulaic at the beginning but the 2nd half of the game, the struggle to return home, leads the story away from the classic archetypes into it's own moments of brilliance.
The best thing about Samorost 2 is that it also doesn't have ridiculous puzzles, as with so many flash or adventure "point n click" games. Samorost makes sense, which was refreshingly original.

It isn't long which is the biggest flaw, but a game that wants you to keep playing, is always easy to recommend.

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.

Most of what makes this game great is its style. It is a very simple point and click adventure game with no dialogue and its puzzle are mostly just a small roadblock to getting to the next area and seeing the new scenery. You can play the first Samorost here for free: http://amanita-design.net/samorost-1/

That should give you some idea of the style (though the second game is longer, rather more polished and with more sensible puzzles). The demo for Samorost2 is here: http://amanita-design.net/samorost-2/

Samorost 1 is free-to-play at the developer's website, HERE, along with several other short adventures.

I really love games by Amanita, with Botanicula currently being by favorite. They're quirky, they're cute, and they're fun to figure out.

The Samorost games contain my favorite character, the space gnome, but be aware that the first two are very short, and among the first created by the company. (See the full rundown of release dates on Amanita's wiki HERE.) The earliest titles were made to be browser-based flash games, which is why the Samorost 2 playing area takes up a smallish area of the screen (if you have your destop set at 1920x1080, anyway.)

The game will open up full-screen with a black background, but if you hit the Esc button, it will play windowed. Gameplay itself consists of finding clickable areas, then figuring out the correct sequence -- and sometimes timing -- to allow you to progress.

There are seven levels to complete, and as you start each one, you will be given a level code so that you can return to that area if you need to turn off the game, or just feel like revisiting. You can find the walkthrough HERE, and the level codes are the first thing you'll see, so no worries if you don't want spoilers. ;)

In closing, Samorost 2 is a short, fun romp through one of Amanita's earliest games. I personally would not pay full price for the game unless I was buying directly from the developers in order to support them, and recommend getting it on sale. Definitely looking forward to Samorost 3!

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.

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.

Highly recommend this Point & Click adventure!

It is short, sweet and nasty and from the makers of Machinarium and Botanicula. Nice sound and at minimum (if you know it all) about 30mins, but took me well over an hour, even with the occassional cheating, I must admit.
I found Machinarium easier than this one, but it hasn't got such a sad ending than the former.
You got no hints as in Machinarium and this time you are a little dwarf on your mission to save your dog from alien abuse.
Some people rightly complain that too often objects seem to fall out of thin air rather than having an understandable mechanism behind it (unlike Machinarium and the first half of Samorost2).

Intelligent game, not only for kids - but a must buy for the own kids. Funny and witty and not too expensive for showing support to an Indie Game. - If people spend big Dollars on cheap Multiplayer Map Shooters (which act as nothing but cash cows for the big brands).

One of Amanita Designs earlier games. Their great talent of sound/music immersion and telling a story without a single word said/written ever present.

It's super short, but remember that the first part of the Samorost story is free. If you enjoyed the first, you'll certainly enjoy the second!

Very short, very charming. It's worth the hour if you've played other Amanita games and like them.
