I’m kind of in love with Machinarium. That really sets the tone for the whole review, doesn’t it? The thing is, I’m exactly the kind of person that a game like Machinarium is targeted towards. I love adventure games, and being an indie...

At the beginning of the game, you’re dumped unceremoniously into a scrap pile (you play as a little robot dude that is moderately cute, the furthest left robot in the screen above) with little or no introduction. The story then slowly builds...

In the world of Machinarium you play as a robot who will overcome some challenging puzzles to free other robots, free yourself and stop “bad” robots from blowing up a tower. All of this puzzle solving is set in a uniquely stylized mechanical...

When Machinarium was released almost two months ago, I thought it looked promising—a hand-drawn point-and-click adventure? That’s right up my alley. Unfortunately, it was released the same week that Uncharted 2 and Brutal Legend came out,...

After its real peak in the lighter half of the nineties the point and click genre felt almost instantly out of date. It was hit by a kind of grass-is-always-greener philosophy and where the FPS genre was green the point-and-clicks were like trying to...

Machinarium is a beautifully designed puzzle based game. The quality of the art, background, and animation is second to none. Machinarium is a Flash based game so it doesn’t require a high end computer to play it, which is a big plus. It’s...

DaveOK, so here was my situation: It was a Thursday lunchtime, I had just finished all my work for the day, and I had 15€ of credit on my steam account. Flicking through the new releases page, I noticed the pretty, hand drawn front page of...

There was a time when theory-based point-and-click adventures were held in the same esteem as the triple-A, guns and explosion-laden affairs that are loved so dearly now. Now, however, games that are 'uneventful', but thoughtful and amiable are...

There’s nothing like waking up after being unceremoniously dumped into a heap of scrap only to find your head and limbs have gone missing amidst the filthy debris. Making a crummy situation worse, mechanical hooligans have strapped a large,...

At last the long-awaited Machinarium has arrived, a new point and click adventure from the independent game studio, Amanita Design, based in Prague. It awakens the classic adventure gaming feeling from the early 80’s, when inspiring games like The...

If Osmos were an adventure game, it’d probably be a little something like this. Every scene and interaction is heavily reliant on the ambience that flows throughout the entire game: it’s slow, steady, monumentally sad and absolutely wonderful. The...

By Destructoid on 90

Machinarium may be the best adventure game I've ever played. I don't know if I outright prefer it over the motion-controlled glory that is Zack and Wiki, or the wacky time-travel-laffs of Chariots of the Dogs, but I do know that if you're...

Machinarium caught my eye from the first time I saw it due to the art style and the complex and classic feeling of the puzzles. It seemed so simple, yet so deep. Like many indie games, the passion that was put into it was clearly evident. I even...

A solid puzzler with a mute and lovable protagonist..Machinarium was a puzzler that was released last year, but I only recently had the chance to play it in its entirety. When the game first booted up I was excited at the prospect in front of me, a...

Adventures erfreuen sich stets großer Beliebtheit, gleichen sich meistens jedoch wie ein Ei dem anderen. Gegenstände werden gesammelt, Rätsel gelöst und Dialoge geführt. Böse Zungen würden behaupten, dass es in diesem...

International Review By Level 7 on 80

Machinarium är ett indie-äventyrsspel av den gamla skolan och är utvecklat av Amanita Design. Du pekar och klickar med musen, löser pussel och kombinerar olika saker du samlat på dig. Genren som många har...
