Going into this game, I was reluctant. After having a bad experience with many online flash point-and-clicks, I had no idea what to expect. But believe me, this was no flash game. The outstanding visuals and logical yet fun puzzles immersed me in the oil-filled, rusting city.
However Machinarium makes up for this with an incredibly helpful hint-system. And since every-little-thing that you accomplish is so satisfying, it is still fun to look-up a walkthrough and just watch the character and scenery interact.
The visuals alone are enough to make you want this game, but when you through some of the most atmospheric music (a new soundtrack for EVERY ROOM), brilliant puzzles, some hilarious comedy, and some clever 'level'-design on top, you got one big-ass oil-flavoured wedding-cake. If you enjoy text-games, puzzle games, visual games, or even RPG games, you are bound to enjoy this. Pick it up for only £6.99 on the app. store (for computer) or buy it on their website, a great deal, considering how long the game is. My final thoughts are; poor art-team.
