Wonderful and beautiful
by Jennie Morgan, USA - Nov 16th 2009

This is what a game should be - challenging, beautiful to look at, great music, delightful story and characters. Well worth the money and time.

Sally's Quick Clips Icon
Frantic and Fun
by Peter Wallerich-Neils, USA - Nov 16th 2009

This game is amazing! It's a classic match-3 tile game, but plays off its own unique mechanics to give it a new feel. Fast-paced and entertaining... And such a good price!

Machinarium Icon
for a rainy day
by Jouni Kantola, Italy - Nov 11th 2009

We played one rainy weekend this game together with my wife and eight year old son. Its breath taking graphics, cool ambient soundtrack and fun puzzles totally enchant us to the rusty world of Machinarium. Now that our little hero bravely solved the somewhat 30 hotspots and flew away with his robotgirlfriend, we miss them a lot. Machinarium is indie gaming at its best that I can warmly recommend - it crowns rainy weekend like Neil Gaimans comics.

Machinarium Icon
Unique and beautiful
by Hanna Grapenfelt, Sweden - Nov 5th 2009

I tried the demo, but immediately realised I had to own this game so I could fully immerse myself in it.

This is without a doubt one of the visually most stunning games I have ever played. The world that's been put before us is incredibly rich in detail, and just an absolute joy to look at. The visuals reminded me a little of the French movie, The Triplets of Belleville. Just gorgeous.

The robot handles very well, and is irresistibly adorable in his actions. The puzzles are challenging and offer a wide variety of types and challenges. Sometimes you have to collect an item in one room to use in another. I dare say even the most avid puzzle solver will find something to scratch their heads about. But don't worry, there are hints available (and even a cheat book if you are completely stuck).

This game offers a complete experience; visual beauty, immersive locations, challenging puzzles, hours of fun gameplay. Easily worth every penny. You don't believe me, try the demo.

Campfire Legends - The Hookman Icon
I loved it also
by michelle Scholze, USA - Nov 5th 2009

I thought this game was really fun. Way better than most hide and seek games. I agree with the last reviewer the end came too fast but I would definitely buy this game again if they came out with a sequel.

Chicago 1930 Icon

by Jonathan D Wilson, USA - Nov 3rd 2009

this could be a great game, but the interface is so difficult to work with play is simply painful.

The Tudors Icon
Interesting, but graphics are week
by Laura Fowler, USA - Nov 3rd 2009

I only played it for the demo time. I enjoyed the variety of puzzles and hidden object. I found the graphics grainy, but serviceable.

Machinarium Icon
An aestheticly mindblowing game
by Jessica Simmonds, England - Nov 3rd 2009

This game is simply beautiful. It completely steps into a world of its own by showing hand-drawn looking characters and environments. The puzzles themselves are challenging and make you incorporate broader problem-solving skills beyond the one scene that you're playing through.

Exceedingly well thought out and definitely worth buying the full game.

Subway Scramble Icon
At a "casual game" price, this might be a winner
by Dylan McNamee, USA - Oct 31st 2009

Based on my playing of the demo, this is a pretty game with decent replayability, but it's more like an offline version of a fun Flash game, the kind of thing that goes for $1-5 on the iPhone, or up to $9.95 on a desktop machine, but at $19.95, it leaves a little to be desired. For that price, I'd expect a level editor, or some other value add. That's just me, though. 3 stars for a quick fun game, -2 for value.

Princess Isabella: A Witch's Curse Icon
Not the usual Hidden Object game
by Sara McEnhill, USA - Oct 30th 2009

I'm often bored by Hidden Object games, but even the Hidden Objects in this game are worth it, as the objects are meaningful (some pieces are used in other puzzles). This game has fun - and sometimes challenging - variety of puzzles, and at no time did they feel tedious or pointless. And the puzzles didn't feel "tacked on", but fit into the story being told. The game felt like it was over too quickly, which is a GOOD thing because it means I was having fun and was disappointed to have it end. This is an excellent casual puzzle game that can be played in a few hours.

Machinarium Icon
An amazing game!
by Kevo H, Scotland - Oct 28th 2009

It looks amazing, it plays amazing, it's just so unique!!

Has several difficult puzzles to work out and worst case scenario you can you the blue print cheat book at any time.

Look forward to a sequel being made.

Campfire Legends - The Hookman Icon
I loved it
by Tini Eckardt, Germany - Oct 24th 2009

I played this game last night and really enjoyed the atmosphere. I hope there will be mor campfire legends. For me the game could be much longer - the end came to fast.

Commander: Europe At War Icon
All time greats are great all the time
by Dale Duncan, USA - Oct 23rd 2009

This is almost a clone of Panzer General. This was one of the all time great strategic games. Only addition would be a scenario where the western allies could fight Soviet Union after defeating Axis. Great job guys.

Gangland Icon
Wait to buy
by RN, Canada - Oct 21st 2009

A little pricey. $20 would be resonable. The game did crash twice in 3 hours of play. A fantastic concept and game play. I'll wait for a patch and the price to drop a little.
