What's New in Version 2.0.3
* hotfix of backward compatibility with older iOS 7 and iOS 6 equipped devices
This game has beautiful graphics but is just so tedious it's not enjoyable.
Half the time you can't figure out a task it's because you had the right idea but your click/tap didn't work, the other half of the time it's because the tasks are ridiculously illogical. Someone has a blocked didgeridoo.... Well obviously you require a mechanical cat to unblock it....so stupid.
Some of these puzzles are so stupid the game has its own inbuilt walkthrough... but you can't just access it, oh no.... When you are frustrated with some idiotic puzzle, you will have to play some tedious, crappy little mini game to look at the walkthrough, only to find, half the time, it is no help at all....
There are mini-puzzles and games which are hard and enjoyable, but the main tasks for progressing the story are fairly ridiculous, get ready to just randomly click everything and apply every item in your inventory to everything on the screen..... So tedious....
At no point did I get much enjoyment from this... I never thought "oh wow, that was really clever" I just thought "That was so tedious and stupid...are these developers just trying to annoy people?"
Great graphics, terrible game design
Fantastic work by Amanita Design.
Machinarium is a very enjoyable and charming game. The puzzles are tricky, mostly relying on simply looking to find the inventory objects and figure things out. And when you do look, you have to admire the gorgeous hand-drawn style of the graphics, which are accompanied by a great soundtrack. There are also several nostalgic nods to the arcade games of days past.
Amanita Design has now released Botanicula for the iPad as well, which I didn't hesitate to download. Both games are costly as far as apps go, but both are worth the investment.
A tough but enjoyable point and click adventure
I've played point and click adventure games since the early 1980's and this one is one of the best I've ever played. The graphics are beautiful and the puzzles are hard but logical - my advice is stay observant to details in the locations, because clues and solutions are spread around. The sound design is atmospheric and the music is unobtrusive. The animations are simple but humorous. I'm actually sad to have finished it! I hope they create more games like this. I'd give it six stars if I could.
