It paces slowly through a lunar landscape made of pictures of tree-stumps and moss, roughly yet stylishly pasted together in some ancient copy of photoshop, while you're solving silly puzzles to the sound of calming psychedelic jazz, glowing somewhere in the background.

    This game and its creators came from the era of flash games back in the early 2000s, which weren't really to be taken very seriously, and in my opinion, Amanita Design are one of the true pioneers of the indie game movement. I remember playing Samorost 1 in a browser window, being blown away by why someone had created such a beautiful "joke". I think that was the first time I saw art that actually resonated with me on some deeper spiritual level.

    Granted, I'm too nostalgically attached to this game to see all of its flaws, and it probably isn't as appealing to the audience of today as it was back when. I suggest you try Amanitas later success "Machinarium" if you want to play a game that is more up to speed concerning gameplay quality. But art-wise, few games have ever made such a lasting impression on me as Samorost 1 & 2 did.

I lost a couple of diopters playing it on my iMac. Expand

A lot of the "puzzle" solving boils down to pixel hunting for that one tiny, unmarked place on the screen which you have to click to make the next step happen. I'd be amazed if this was even playtested. I give it three stars instead of zero stars, because there are a couple of gleaming nuggets of cleverness to be found within this turd, if you have the patience to play it. Expand

    I honestly don't understand why other players seem to like this game.

    Playing Samorost 2 can be simplified as time sent doing three things:
    I honestly don't understand why other players seem to like this game.

    Playing Samorost 2 can be simplified as time sent doing three things:
    * Watching the player character walk, crawl, or climb slowly from one place to another.
    * Randomly clicking around the screen until something happens.
    * Raging about having to go back and collect more manatee farts (yes, seriously)

    The graphic style is nice, and the music is good.

    Compared to the first Samorost game, this one's puzzles are noticeably less logical, so any thinking that might have been required has devolved into mindlessly clicking everything. Samorost 2 also feels more drawn out, the last puzzle making it painfully so.

    Samorost 2 is an example of how flash games age poorly and glitch on the latest Microsoft Windows release. Most of the Amanita games in mySamorost 2 is an example of how flash games age poorly and glitch on the latest Microsoft Windows release. Most of the Amanita games in my Steam library are problematic like this.

    Past that, Samorost 2 is a one of those boring click-all-the-pixels games that are pretending to be a puzzler.
