Unmechanical Review (PC)

Softpedia
5 October 2012
  • Conclusion: The contrast of the character with the surrounding environment is quite obvious: here we have a small robot, touching on humanity with its vulnerabilities, in a world where everything is huge, overwhelming and … mechanical. It's like the game puts players in the “shoes” of this little robot that's just trying to find its place in an uninviting atmosphere.
  • Pros: Addictive gameplay with challenging puzzles, Beautiful graphic presentation, Captivating electro soundtrack
  • Cons: Almost zero replay value, Abrupt ending, No manual saving

(PC Review) Unmechanical

The Entertainment Depot
6 September 2012
  • Summary: Unmechanical is an interesting curio of a game: it offers a nicely satisfying set of simple puzzles with a fairly adorable protagonist, but in an experience that’s much too short and with too little payoff for the ideas it introduces. The physics engine is decidedly solid, and the atmosphere easily carries the day, with its implications of vague horror (for robots, at any rate) and audiovisuals that help draw you in and become invested in this journey for freedom.

  • Conclusion: Unmechanical is a puzzle games that offers a pretty, but all too familiar experience of solving difficult puzzles in order to advance through a subterranean underworld. Easy and minimalistic controls make the game easy enough to pick up for gamers of any skill level, but some of the more complex puzzles may put them off or force them to seek out solutions. If it’s a challenge you seek, Unmechanical will give it to you.

Review: Unmechanical

New Gamer Nation
23 August 2012
  • Conclusion: Final Verdict: Unmechanical is an above-average physics puzzler that is brought up quite a few notches by the commitment to great visual design and a terrific use of atmosphere. It's a short but fun experience that uses the mystery of the unknown to great effect.

  • Excerpt: "Unmechanical", possibly a strange name for a game where a robot is the lead, or is it? A 2.5D side-scroll puzzler focused on a cute little robot who finds himself all alone in a mechanical underworld. The objective is, you guessed it, escape the underworld. That seems to be the plot and the titles point of origin, a robot who wants to escape the mechanical.
  • Pros: Variation, Easy to pick up, Nice vibe
  • Cons: Not motivating, No in-depth story, 3 - 6 hours of playing

Unmechanical Review | Time Well Spent

Dealspwn
11 August 2012
  • Conclusion: The Short Version: Unmechanical provides four wonderful hours of mechanically-perfect puzzling, trapping you willingly in its gorgeous labyrinth for the duration. Despite a couple of issues and a slight lack of real innovation, Unmechanical joins the wealth of fantastic student projects that evolved into excellent games, and provides an experience that's more polished and balanced than any number of big-budget titles I could mention. It's time (and money) well spent.
  • Pros: Compelling, mechanically nigh-perfect puzzling, Brilliantly-designed and balanced puzzles, Devastatingly handsome
  • Cons: Poor signposting, Doesn't innovate (you'll have seen many of these puzzles before, only worse), Unsatisfying resolution
