    It's the same beautiful game we've appreciated on PC almost ten years ago and on the other platforms, now also on Nintendo Switch but without any sign of change.

    While this incarnation of Machinarium doesn’t offer anything different from the other versions already out there, it’s still a fine port of an award-winning point-and-click adventure. Even after nine years, Amanita Design’s brilliant little odyssey still looks, plays and feels fresh thanks to a quirky soundtrack, those instantly recognisable hand-drawn visuals and an approach to environmental puzzles that strikes the right balance between obtuse and tantalisingly obvious. True, the lack of any additional content makes this a hard sell for anyone who's already played it elsewhere, but if you’ve never had the pleasure of joining Josef on his mechanical adventure, there’s arguably never been a better platform on which to try it.

    A cute point&click adventure with gorgeous graphics in the style of Czech cartoons. Challenging, but fair.

I love the art, puzzles are (mostly) well designated, sometimes its funny and cute. Just maybe its a little too short and some puzzles are more like mathematical challenges, which can be a bit frustrating. Expand

Some of the puzzles are really hard, but the game always gives you the solution if you beat a little mini-game (loved that feature). Probably the best part about it is that every room you enter, you have NO clue what’s about to happen—you may use a tube to suck black sludge out of a kitchen sink, or it could be even more absurd than that, but it’s always good fun.

    Sometimes items on the screen are too small (I played on a Switch Lite), but that’s to be expected for a game developed on PC. In addition, some of the puzzles are really challenging, although they are possible.

    Still, a very fun game, and an easy recommendation.
