  1. One of the most beautiful games to hit home computers in a long time.
  2. One of the greatest PC games that we've tried so far this year is a puzzle game mixed with stunning graphics. A truly robotical adventure that's meant to be one of this year's GOTY without any doubt.

    Remakes and IP revivals may be raking in the big bucks at the moment, but this artistically unique original is the game that really deserves your love and respect. [Nov 2009, p.106]
  4. Therefore, Machinarium can be considered a very successful adventure game, which I recommend to any player, be it or not a passionate of the genre.

    Machinarium is a successful mix of unique audiovisual atmosphere and traditional point-and-click adventuring. While the character control is a bit flimsy, beautiful hand drawn graphics and funny puzzles make it a true gem among indie games. [Feb 2010]
  6. But the puzzles themselves are nearly an unmitigated joy.
  7. Old school graphic adventure that doesn't pull its punches with either the puzzles or the gorgeous art.

It is completely flash based with great music plus a cute and funny story. It's amusing, clever, witty, stupid, fun, easy, challenging, and frustrating all at the same time. Throw some retro 80s gaming into the mix and you've wrapped up an enjoyable adventure. Expand

    Definitely not a game for people with short patience. Hard puzzles, but not impossible, that make you think before making your next move, andDefinitely not a game for people with short patience. Hard puzzles, but not impossible, that make you think before making your next move, and not randomly clicking your way to find the exit as fast as possible. Beautiful artwork and backgrounds, good soundtrack and likable characters with a simple story to tell. I got on steam for $3 and it definitely paid off.
    The only reason I find to not give this game a 10, is that sometimes, depending on your graphic settings, the game just froze and the animation crashed. But despite some minor glitches, it's a gem hidden in a sea of mindless "point'n'clicks".

Поскольку весь мир роботов состоит из механизмов, то будьте готовы к обилию шестеренок и стрелок! Скучных и долгих диалогов в игре не будет. Краткая и понятная мысль будет запечатлена в «облачке», которое мы привыкли видеть в комиксах Expand

Cela dit, pourLe petit étron indé foireux du jour sonne creux comme une gourde en fer blanc... ça fait toc toute cette ferraille en solde ! Cela dit, pour un jeu qui se passe à la décharge, ça ne lui fera pas loin pour aller à la poubelle... tiens, il doit y avoir une benne pour toi, petit robot mongolo, vas-y ! fais comme chez toi...

    Quoi, ça ? ça, c'est le broyeur où on met en pièces détachées les **** robots mongolos dans ton genre, celui des jeux (?) d'aventure à cliqueurs à la mords-moi-le-noeud... si on aime se faire chier, il paraît que c'est l'idéal. Contre la constipation.

    En plus, sur le PC, là, il est même pas en plein écran, cet étron indé de mon cul ! c'est tout en 2D de toute façon, comme une vieille daube du siècle dernier, tu le crois ça ? et la musique plaira sûrement aux ascenseurs mais c'est tout...
