    A heavily stylised game based on programming is hardly destined for universal appeal, but those who do fall into its niche will find plenty to love about Human Resource Machine. Whether you are unfamiliar entirely with computing, or a professional in the field, the charm on the game's surface is such that it's impossible not to fall in love with the cute characters and hilarious dialogue, even if it's all over a little too soon.

    The puzzles may get too complex at times, but Human Resource Machine is a game anyone with an interest in challenging puzzlers should play.

    An interesting and painless way to dip a toe into the world of computer science without actually having to get your feet wet. [Issue #19 – January/February 2016, p.23]
