Review of Machinarium by debudding

Stars - 40

Perfect atmosphere


This was an excellent game which excelled notably in its use of music and graphics to create an immersive and affecting atmosphere. Although not a massively in-depth adventure game, it still manages to deliver a lot within its modest gaming framework. The only things that really let it down were: A lack of any dialogue or in-depth interaction with other characters and sometimes you are requires to click things in a particular way to get them to work (notably an elevator lever which doesn’t work unless you tap it at the stem of the lever, a problem which left me spending hours trying to work out what I was missing when in fact I had it right, I was simply clicking the wrong part of a lever.) Also, at one point a glitch left me stranded on a puzzle for some time. However, the game provided a really enjoyable experience outside of these minor frustrations. A worthwhile play in my opinion which deserves a solid 4 stars on account of its outstanding atmosphere.
