Summary: Although this is a very interesting game, I won't rate it 5 stars because of the inability to save your progress. It simply annoys me to no end that I have to start the game from scratch each time I play. I've updated my adobe flash settings and I'm still unable to save this rather interesting and unusual game.
Summary: This is quite a nice little puzzle game with a different theme and cast of characters. The graphics are beautifully done and the story line follows fairly logically. The puzzles can be challenging at times, and it is very nice to have the hints section integrated into the game and done so in an amusing graphic arts manner; and even better yet that you have to work to get at the hints so that they do not become too much of a crutch.
Summary: Original Review: Beautiful graphics, quirky gameplay. I'd have loved this game, but I came to a mini-game towards the end of the game that requires you to shoot 33 enemies without getting shot once. This is NOT why I play adventure type games. And there is no way to skip it, so I was deprived of the joy of finishing this lovely game. Edited Review: I am editing this after completing the game.
Summary: Machinarium is great exercise for the old gray matter. Moving from scene to scene requires completing a puzzle. Some are tough, but most just require common sense. Graphics are somewhat unusual, not your typical adventure game style, but refreshingly amusing. You can tell the folks who created this game had a wonderful sense of humor, and were able to weave their humor into the game. I especially got a kick out of the walkthrough pamphlet..
Summary: This game was unique and fun to play. Although the story line is somewhat short, most of your time will be spent trying to figure out what the heck you are supposed to do. This game challenges your mind through patience and puzzles. It can be easy to get frustrated at times. It is however a fun game and I always get a rewarding feeling when I finally figure out what to do.
Summary: Very fun and interesting game. I really enjoyed the humor exuberated by the main character with his many mannerisms. Watch him when as he is idle (don't move your mouse) for many surprises. The only downfall of this game is it is too short. Five hours without a walkthrough, which did come with the product, is less than what I expect for this caliber of game. Outside of that, I hope for a sequel that is eight times longer. I consider a 40-hour game in my challenge range.
Excerpt: Im not usually a fan of point and click games, but a friend recommended this to me and after seeing the artwork for it, I just had to try it. What is it?

Excerpt: Machinarium is a little gem of a game. I downloaded, played and completed it very quickly. It is one of the best point and click adventure games I've played in a long time. What it is Developed and produced in 2009 by Amanita design. Machinarium is their first full length, point and click, one player, adventure game. I found this game by chance whilst scouring various game sites. looking for freebies.
Summary: - Graphics: Superb hand drawn graphics with the kind of loving attention to detail which have made the games of Amanita Design famous. Quite an astonishingly gorgeous use of flash that you wouldn't notice (except if you right click you only get the context menu!). - Characterisation: Simply crafted and instantly recognisable character types. The charm oozes out of them despite lack of dialogue, even the "bad guys" have something endearing about them!
