  • Conclusion: Playing Machinarium, I sometimes felt that I was at odds with it. I was infatuated with its beauty and craft, yet infuriated when its artistic qualities clashed with its basic mechanical design.

  • Excerpt: Amanita Design has made several short Flash games before, but Machinarium is their first full length adventure. In Machiniarium, you play as a robot who was captured and dumped for trash, in several pieces. Unfortunately, a gang of bad robots took your girlfriend and have locked her up.
  • Pros: Very creative art style; lovely music; simple point and click adventure game play; some puzzles are very challenging; Mac/Linux versions
  • Cons: One bug required changing the display size to complete the puzzle; has only 2 fixed resolutions; seems a bit short
