A little robot who’s been thrown out to the scrap yard behind the city must return and confront the Black Cap Brotherhood and save his robot-girl friend.
The game is broken and will not play and Amantia has ignored my requests for support. The game freezes in the prison scene. This problem has been well documented and has occurred before. It was reportedly "fixed" but people still continue to have problems. Beware this company as they are just looking to make a quick buck from gullible Linux users.
For point&click fangirls 7 seems like blasphemy but I have my reasons and I'll tell you about it, don't you worry.
-Puzzles feel logical while still weird and refreshing
-Story and the world is complex if you think about it
-Art style (it's one of those love it or hate it)
-Misses memobrable characters
For me the game was way too gray and too quiet/depressing all the time. I didn't feel any sympathy for the "mainbot".
Machinarium es un juego flash que básicamente se juega haciendo clicks para interactuar con nuestro entorno de diferentes maneras e ir resolviendo puzles (algo complicados a veces); creado por Amanita Design.
En Machinarium, tomamos el rol de un robot que ha sido exiliado de la ciudad, la cuál es habitada únicamente por robots de diferentes formas y funciones; debemos regresar a salvar la ciudad de la Hermandad Black Cap, a los responsables de la ciudad y a tu amiga.
Los fondos y los personajes están dibujados a mano en 2D, así como las animaciones; no hay diálogos en el juego, sino que los personajes se comunican a través de cuadros de comics con animaciones (bastante simpáticos a veces, te llega a sacar una sonrisa); la música es bonita, muy acorde a la ambientación.
Ganó el premio Excellence in Visual Art, en el 12º Independent Games Festival anual; y no es dificil encontrar que tiene calificaciones excelentes.
Although I'm in love with the art and the music, I can't stand adventure games where the puzzles are not logical. You will find yourself using a lot of trial and error in this game unless you look up the solutions online. If you're OK with that then it's truly worth your while. I'm glad I played it but now I'm happier listening to it's soundtrack.
One of the best puzzle/adventure games I have played. I found my self sitting back taking in all of the great cartoon artwork and the soundtrack suited the game perfectly. The puzzles definitely have you thinking for a while, the animations were smooth and game play for this game was perfect. I highly recommend anyone who is looking for a well made puzzle/adventure game or just a great game in general.
Adventure games are my favourite genre and I have to say Machinarium is one of my very favourite I've ever played (i.e. ever since early 90's!).
It is a brilliant, challenging and at the same time simple in its context game with no voices or text. Love it!
I only withdrew a point because it's written in Flash.
