    However you choose to play Machinarium, puzzling it out on your own or with a walkthrough in hand, the important thing is that you do play it. It's a feast for the senses and a treat for your brain, and there's nothing else on the Vita like it.

    It seems pretty clear to us that Machinarium is destined to end up being viewed as a timeless classic and added to all those lists and recaps of classic point and click games. It’s just so staggeringly lovely that we can only recommend you get it as soon as possible.

    Machinarium on Vita is an elegant version of a great game, adapted for the platform with a good deal of thought and care

    A great game, probably in my top 3 point and click adventures I've ever played, and it translates nicely to the vita. The only minor problemA great game, probably in my top 3 point and click adventures I've ever played, and it translates nicely to the vita. The only minor problem is that through most of the game you're expected to rely on visual queues to figure out what to do and some people may have trouble with that due to the small screen. It's really not too bad though. The puzzles are as tricky as they are varied so it's fun to play and never gets old all the way through. The music and visuals work really well in unison and are likely to haunt you long after you play. It almost reminds me of a David Firth animation except not quite as dark. Overall I adore the game.

    For a game that has no dialogue apart from a few grumbles, the story of this game is heart warming and shown really well. The visuals lookFor a game that has no dialogue apart from a few grumbles, the story of this game is heart warming and shown really well. The visuals look crisp on the Vita, and the puzzles range from simple to incredibly difficult. Unless you check a guide for some clues you will be stuck for hours on just 1 puzzle! Full Review »
