Umm - how do you update the 1.01 version to 1.2? If you click on the download link, it seems you just get the 1.01 demo. :-(

Machinarium is hands-down, the best game I have played in a decade. I just finished it a couple days ago, and I am seriously jonesing for more of the same -- I'd already played Samorost 1/2. This game is stunningly GORGEOUS. The art is meticulously done, the characters are insanely cute, and everything about the game is pure eye-candy. However, the only thing perhaps better than the art is the soundtrack, which I find unequaled in any other game I have ever played. Even the little "jazz trio" in the middle of the game plays a perfect notion of "robot jazz": Not swung, yet also not dry. Although the soundtrack is the perfect atmospheric accompaniment to Machinarium, the fact that an "improved" version is sold with the game is a testament to its high quality. The puzzles are complex, but not impossibly so, as long as you have enough patience to truly immerse yrself in them. In terms of difficulty, I'd say that they're a bit easier than the puzzles in the original Myst or Riven. I enjoyed Machinarium more than Myst in part because I could survey each scene without losing my orientation in first-person navigation. I have a couple of extremely minor quibbles with gameplay: Dragging the robot's head up and down gets tiresome on the mouse-finger, and there is actually one dead-end in the game (so be sure to save!) It would also be nice to have the ability to transport saved games between computers. These points are very minor, though, and shouldn't deter anyone. In sum: The puzzles are very good if you are a patient person, and the music and artwork are second to none.

I got Machinarium as part of the last MacUpdate bundle. I am not someone who typically enjoys "puzzle games". I didn't like the Myst series. I like puzzles that are easy to medium in difficulty, and I absolutely hate sitting there staring at something, totally lost. If you are like me, then you may be surprised that I still recommend getting Machinarium. However, I also recommend finding a good online walkthrough to reference when you get stuck. Why do I recommend it? This game is so well drawn and so cute that I really wanted to finish it, even though it meant resorting to the online walkthrough more often than not. I still look back and think "I never in a million years would have gotten that solution without the walkthrough". I'm not sure if that's typical of puzzle games or not, since I don't often play them. So, even though I'm a twitch gamer (Grand Theft Auto and CounterStrike are some of my favourite games), I enjoyed playing through this game. It's like playing the main character in a cartoon movie. I also enjoyed the darker, steampunkish setting.

How come this is a demo version that came with the promo. I thought it was supposed to be a full version.
