    Samorost 3 is the fruitful culmination of a 13 year old journey by Amanita design. And it is an absolute masterpiece by any standards.

    Samorost 3 is a work of art, I like to think. Right from the first challenge I fell in love with the game and I enjoyed how the world is presented. Take my word for it, some of the wacky creature designs are sure to bring a smile on your face.

    Gorgeous and joyful adventure, a game that makes that warm, fuzzy feeling while you're playing it, Samorost 3 takes you on a surreal intergalactic voyage full to the brim with outlandish landscapes and characters.

    Samorost 3 is an excellent point-and-click adventure game for those looking for a slow, surreal experience.

    Third part continues where it had ended long time ago – it was sufficiently long ago for Amanita to make completely new and unprecedented features. Just a pity they show their best cards too soon. [Issue#262]

    Samorost 3 is as frustrating as it is beautiful. It takes some interesting ideas, a gorgeous environment, and a fantastic soundscape and applies them to a gameplay formula that doesn't work quite as well as it should. And with its short playtime and weak motivation, there's not much reason to embark on a journey in this world.

    Finally a game as good as Machinarium. Great puzzles, awesome visuals and music.

    The story is a heartwarming fairytale for both old and young.
    If you have kids you can "read" the story to your children as a bedtime-story.

    It's easier to get help when in stuck (by solving a puzzle) than in Machinarium.

    Amanita designs spirits the player away once again to a world of cosmic shroom trips.

    Stunning art, clever puzzles with unique mechanics, and an incredible soundtrack.

    This game joins Machinarium as some of the best adventure games to come out since the late 90s. Do yourself a rock solid and buy this game.

If you liked other games like Machinarium and previous Samorost, don't miss this one, highly recommended.
    PROS: music and sounds above all, terrific ambient, puzzles are good, no languages requested to be played, trumpet is a fantastic idea
    CONS: sometimes you need to stay near to things to take or move it, i'd have like more objects to use

    Rarely does a long awaited sequel to one of those things that I love feel "worthy" its name. This one does, however. Every part of whatRarely does a long awaited sequel to one of those things that I love feel "worthy" its name. This one does, however. Every part of what originally appealed to me about Samorost is elaborated on in this game. The visuals are nicer, the music is grander, the story is more epic, and the puzzles are slightly better.

    This is actually the first Samorost game that feels like it is meant to be taken seriously. I realize that this could be interpreted as an insult to Amanita Design, but even though I have nothing but love for Samorost 1 & 2, I will be honest about that I always felt as though they were more like a "showcase" of the studios capabilities, and lacked a fully thought through story and pacing. Compared to its predecessors, this game feels -complete-.

    Samorost 3 still doesn't strike me as grand of an adventure as Machinarium was though, and this is probably due to the fact that it doesn't have any ambition to describe or develop the personality of its characters. This is the third game I play as the little white Samorost gnome, and I still have no idea who he/she really is. But that's okay. Because this game is clearly NOT about its characters. It is all about the environment, and it does a brilliant job of conveying the feel of that environment in every possible way.

    The puzzles range from child level to medium, and I think that's a fairly good level for this particular game to be at. This is because the game is completely driven by my desire to see the next environment, and therefore I do not want to be stuck in the same place for too long.

    It seems to me that Amanita Design are still searching for that last piece of the puzzle that will enable them to create a masterpiece, and I believe that piece is dramaturgy. Just like their prior games, the story does not have any highs or lows, and the crescendo at the end is just about to dull to make me go over the edge emotionally. Like I said, this game is all about the environment, so It's okay for the story to flat-line, but in the future I'm hoping to see Amanita Design make a true masterpiece that has that last missing puzzle piece of dramaturgy.

    Well worth the short time it takes. I'm sure it will inspire you!

    This game is just awful. Is overly noisy, with sounds made by a 1 year old.

    This game is just awful. Is overly noisy, with sounds made by a 1 year old.
    The goals of the puzzles are not clear. You have to randomly click everywhere until you hit something. Even watching the solution you don't know what the point is.
    The graphics are the only good thing.
