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.
This game is beautiful. The artwork was breathtaking, the music was perfect, and the puzzles give nearly a perfect degree of challenge (though parts of the game are on the easy side). This brought me back to the old point-and-click adventure days, while still transporting me into the robot-ruled junkyard of Machinarium.
The length leaves you wanting more, though. It is not a long game (though a couple of the less obvious parts of the game may fill up some of that lack of length!)
A really, really enjoyable game that ows much to the classic graphic adventures. Not too difficult and not too long to be suitable for people like me, who have very limited time to play.
I considered giving this a 9, because of the flash implementation. Flash offers easy cross-platform support, but it takes a huge toll on the performance. Even this slow-paced game without many moving parts on the screen was occasionally a bit too slow on my 2005 Athlon 64 3800+ (single core). Heavier games were played 20 years ago on 386's.
Still, I give my highest recommendations. There aren't many games like this.
Nice adventure game with a very good atmosphere. The graphics, sound and control are excellent. The game itself doesn't even need English/reading skills, it is almost nonverbal and is playable by small kids or non-English speakers.
The only thing that I can criticise is that some puzzles are very time consuming; Sometimes it's a pixel hunt, sometimes there is a lot of walking (which is slow). Also sometimes it is needed to repeat an action multiple times to get a result, this really kills some fun.
