    It's a lovely game, and for the most part it works quite well. I consider my time with it well spent, even if a few tweaks could have made These Robotic Hearts of Mine much more atmospheric.

    Clever, inventive, and moving, this short but sweet puzzler is not soon forgotten.

    It feels important, and interesting to complete a level. The story, and how it is presented is pure brilliance. If the game had been longer, and had some variation to the gameplay it would have shone even brighter.

    These Robotic Hearts of Mine is a story-focused puzzle game where players try to get all the hearts in a level upright.

    These Robotic Hearts of Mine is a beautiful and poetic melding of narrative and gameplay, creating something far more inspiring than either could achieve in the process; sadly the game's open format makes it hard to engage completely, meaning many may miss out on (or not care for) this deeper experience.

    Love is perplexing, challenging, and confusing. Thus, the cold, calculating puzzles should complement the emotional relationship parable. Hazelden wants it to work. We want it to work. But the sad truth is that in this instance the two simply don't have enough in common. Sometimes love just isn't enough.
