Machinarium for iPhone

Editors' Review

by   / June 10, 2014

Machinarium is a game that transports you to a surreal and desolate world where you have to guide your robot character safely to the completion of your quest. The object of your journey is not immediately apparent when you begin playing, but it slowly becomes clear as you work your way through various levels.

Pros

Puzzles within puzzles: To complete each level, you have to figure out what the puzzle is and then solve it. There also is a comic-book like walk-through of each stage that you have to solve. Most of the challenges in this game revolve around utilizing the tools you have at hand and being resourceful, and completing tasks in the proper order, which can be a puzzle on its own sometimes.

Slow reveal: When you first start playing this game, you really have no idea where you are or where you're trying to go. But little by little, as you complete more levels and enter more complex areas, patterns begin to emerge that give you clues as to your ultimate goal. This slow reveal makes the game even more interesting and compelling to play.

Cons

Touchy controls: Even when you know what you want to do in this game, it's not always easy to accomplish it. That's because the controls can be a bit sensitive, and sometimes object placement needs to be incredibly specific to elicit the proper reaction, which can be quite frustrating.

Bottom Line

Machinarium costs $4.99, and it's a great experience from both a gaming and visual standpoint. While it can be a bit frustrating to get the hang of things at first, if you stick with it, you'll quickly find yourself hooked and losing track of time. If you're looking for a new distraction, this is a good choice.
