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.
