    It's very well designed and it can help those without programming skills with their first steps in this world. It also does its job with very well implemented touch controls, but it will not be a significant challenge to players who already have programming skills and its 38 levels might feel too short.

    As a puzzle game or an introduction to programming, Human Resource Machine does a really good job, although everyone might not prove up to the task.

    Human Resource Machine is a good game, bordering on great. It's just missing a few little tweaks.

    All of the great things about the game, the music, the cutesy indie art design, the concept, and the humor…all overshadowed by a difficulty curve so steep that Lance Armstrong couldn’t bike up it if he was in his blood-doping addled prime.
