Not a big fan of game.. that said, this game is totally different from normal ones and the graphic is gorgeously done! The storyline is very unique - a touch of environmentalism, which i love! This is my first game from Amanita Design. Definitely gonna try out the other two! Highly recommended👍🏻
This game as with all hanged made by amanita design is simply awesome. It is really very hard but also extremely fun! Need I say more.
Difficult to play on phone screen, frustration takes you out of the magical world created. Tiny details covered by fingers, too fine to control. Feels like game not made for phone, just imported. Beautiful but wasted money because poor UI ruins UX.
This game is simply the most beautifully crafted game. The graphics are a wonderful piece of art. Truly. But this game is also a bit complicated to get through and at times, not exactly intuitive to figure out the puzzle. I’ve had to use the walkthrough online to get through a good chunk of these tasks. Still a great game though!
I love the look of this game but the puzzles were way too complicated for me. I could figure out that I was supposed to do something, but couldn’t guess what. After I used a walkthrough for a hint I was fine, but needing to do that repeatedly was not fun.
Played this with my five year old daughter as a partner on a trip. What a blast, beautiful and magical, one of the most enjoyable games I've played in years ... was sad it ended .. hope they build more.
Really enjoyed this game. It leaves one with such a serene sense. Something symbiotic about the scenery, the music, and the quest...
So fun and beautiful. The puzzles are amazing
Buyer beware. Make sure your device is compatible with this game before hitting that purchase button. This is the first and only app I've come across that still allows you to purchase it, even if your device isn't compatible. You literally open the game and get a dialog box telling you about the incompatibility issue, and it's left at that. You can not do anything else and you're most likely stuck with a useless game and out $4. This is unethical programming. The fact that they allow you to buy it but then stick you with a dialog box is unreal. You shouldn't be able to download it period, as pretty much every other app in the AppStore blocks you from doing if your device is incompatible. The programmers know dang well that most who buy, but can't play, will not know how to get a refund or just won't go through the effort. The makers of the game still get their money all while a useless game is given to you. This isn't some 99cent game, so this is messed up that they are okay with this. I can't review the game at all and really was looking forward to playing it. I am only reviewing in hopes that others do not get screwed over and sucked into this nonsense. I usually do not need to check if my device is compatible because when you click to purchase/download, it's always told me I can't because my device isn't supported. Shame on you, makers of this game for not going the extra step to block incompatible devices from purchasing your app. It's not even a hard thing to make happen, but they would rather take your money and hope you don't want to go through the annoying effort to get a refund.
Gorgeous game! The sound design is mind blowing, and the graphics are hand drawn worlds that take you away from this one while you play.
Impossible to navigate unless you are high on shrooms or have a cheat guide. It's not at all intuitive, super frustrating. 2 stars because it really is beautiful but otherwise don't do it!
I picked this up at work recently (campus librarians get a lot of downtime) and beat it in a day. The art is gorgeous, every character and creature is adorable, the ability to interact with almost everything had me showing the game to all of my friends and touting how absolutely precious the entire game is. The puzzles can be a bit difficult and require some explanation, but honestly, it's rather in flavour for the game, as you're going through alien worlds anyway, so why not make everything alien? Really glad I picked this up, and will definitely be getting more games from this developer!
Too frustrating just deleted it.
This is one of the best game I have ever played! Amazing story, graphic and music! Beautiful! It's a little bit confusing at the beginning, but once you get into it you really cannot stop! Anyone cannot figure it out is because you are lack of patience! Also you really got to listen to what every character says to you even they don't speak human language! Absolutely love this game and thank you Amanita!
This is billed as an exploration adventure (with a few puzzles along the way). What it really appears to be is a puzzle game with no real exploration adventure at all. And, the puzzles lack any reasonable logic. So the game becomes a random trial & error experience with little-to-no redeeming satisfaction. Never got past the three opening areas, and finally lost the desire to continue the 'game'.
Don't know why, there's no sound when wearing a Bluetooth wireless headphone...
I am so frustrated with this game right now. Like a previous reviewer, my game glitched in the underground cave where you add an ingredient to a pot to create a bomb. I did what was required...but no bomb. Black creatures just kept singing and singing. I exited game and went to 'saved worlds' screen to reenter and all icons were of the scene at the very beginning of the game - identical. Not sure what would happen, I clicked on the highest numbered one, hoping it would return me to my most recent location. Nope. Back to the very first world. EVERY saved world icon brought me back to the first world. I don't feel like going through all those puzzles again! I loved Botanicula and Machinarium. I would really like a refund for this game. So disappointed.
but otherwise a glamorous and multi-layered game
I really enjoy the interaction. I'm not through the adventure yet. Im sure I will get stuck a time or two. The sounds and music are wonderful. This app is not stuck on language. It manages to avoid language and understanding in a creative universal way. Love it...
I am not kidding. Everything about it is spot on, the non-violence, the design, the characters, the music, even how it ends is precious. It's niceness is infectious, and although it may sound a little too much for a game, I'm sure that if more games were like Samorost the World would be a better place.
really pretty to look at but zero momentum. got bored pretty quickly.
Absolutely loved this game - the beautiful landscapes in each planet, the catchy & charming soundtrack, the quirky puzzles and the spunky little gnome - loved it all! :)
I liked Machinarium and loved Botanicula, but this was my favorite of the three. Make a sequel, please!!
This beautiful game shows an interesting world full of life. I like its idea of using music to communicate with everything. The puzzles are designed well, though some are difficult and I had to use walkthrough for help. In short, you will experience a journey like fairy tale, which will strengthen your love of this world.
I LOVE this game. The graphics are awesome, the puzzles are challenging, and you have a book to unlock with various puzzles to get hints that aren't too obvious, so it doesn't ruin the experience. I can't WAIT to see what Amanita Design comes up with next. I have played all their games. Brilliant.
Graphics, music, story, everything was very beautiful
Great art and sound design, but bad puzzles. Many of the later puzzles seem to require trial and error or logical leaps that aren't explained. The game is further hampered by optional puzzles which are not differentiated in any consistent way from the mandatory puzzles. The reward for solving an optional puzzle is a song which you'll never listen to. These puzzles make the mandatory puzzles harder because it's never clear if the puzzle you're stuck on is necessary to progress or a fun diversion. Even if you loved Machinarium I wouldn't waste your time with this.
This also doesn't work on my iPad since it's too old, bummed out since I'm a huge fan of your games
This is the worst game I have ever played. It is a complete waste of time and money.
I don't normally play puzzle adventure type games, but this one looked interesting because the developer is named after a type of psychoactive mushroom. It's a nearly perfect game. The bizarre, psychedelic worlds are beautiful. The sound effects never cease to amuse. The music is well placed and powerful. My one complaint is also a warning: the save/load section in the menu is not marked as such and I accidentally loaded a previous save and lost a good chunk of progress. I swore I was going to deduct a star because of the frustration (they should really have some kind of warning or something), but I just couldn't bring myself to do it. This is a five star game. I just downloaded Botanicula and it's also pretty awesome so far.
No instructions so checked the user page on the developers site. Some helpful hints but no real instructions. What the user guide describes is only partially helpful because it does not match what is in my game. There is no settings icon on the first screen. Even if the icon was there you cannot get back to the first screen to use it. The Lore book is less than helpful. The game is beautiful and would be fun if it i could use it.
I played the iPhone edition and my review reflects that experience. First, as other reviews have noted, the graphics, animations, and storyline are off the hook in this game - absolutely gorgeous (and the gnome is too adorable for words). For me, the puzzles were extremely challenging - I could usually figure out the gist of what I was supposed to do, but often needed a walkthrough to get the details. That is probably a reflection of my own inexperience, though. My only real complaint is that the graphic elements on the iphone are sometimes so small that they are difficult to manipulate - when they are smaller than a fingertip, it's hard to see what you are doing. Not unexpected, but occasionally frustrating. All that said, this game was well worth the purchase price for the hours of enjoyment I got out of it!
Stunning and original, the landscape and creatures of this game are so vivid and well developed. I did not find this game short at all and throughly enjoyed playing it through.
The atmosphere is astounding, it makes you feel as if you are in the different planets the gnome goes to. It's such an odd and wonderful game and the work that was put into it really shows how passionate the creators are about their work.
A cute story/puzzle. It was fun figuring out the puzzles. I sometimes, though, have gone to the hints sooner rather than later and this game has a perfect hint system! No words, just rough diagrams that are puzzles themselves but you won't have much difficulty figuring them out. I don't think I could have done all of the puzzles without any hints.
Hi dear I wish you to add Arabic language Thank you
This was actually a very engaging little game. It was kind of short, but that's okay; it worked for the story. The puzzles were always at the right difficulty level, and if they were too hard, you could always look in the red book in your opinions menu. In the book it would tell you how to solve it, but in a vague enough way that it was almost a puzzle in itself. That's why I don't understand all the complaints about difficulty and puzzles being too obscure. Firstly, when u think about it, all the puzzles were perfectly logical. And secondly, am I the only person who ever figured out to use the red book?! Seriously though. This is a really amazing game on so many levels. Buy it. And wear headphones.
My mom used to play the game and by the view of the way she plays is amazing the physic,graphics are amazing I like it I will download it 🙂
I'm very sorry for my purchase, it's very short and I solved it under one hour and not as good as machinaruim.
One of the best games I've played...I don't understand why others say they couldn't save their progress.... I had no problem saving any stage of the game...I loved it from beginning to end..I'm buying every game they have out now and will be waiting and watching for the next new game...well worth the money...Great game...
I thought my device was supported but apparently my device is older than I thought. I would like a refund, please. It's a shame because I love this series and was really looking forward to playing it. 😞
Important: check your device's compatibility before buying! I adored Machinarium so I knew I had to try Samorost. It was just as fun and just as challenging, and even prettier. Congrats, guys!
So I was stuck on the part with the dancing cave dwellers making the bomb. They keep dancing and dancing, but our little gnome never joins in and it never ends. They just eventually stop dancing, no bomb is made. I know it's supposed to happen because I got frustrated and googled a walk through, and it turns out this is a glitch that happened to others and the game developer acknowledged it and blew it off. If you don't intend on fixing it, give me my money back. This is unbelievable and if it were in any other kind of store, would be unacceptable! You can't sell half-assed products in the real world. I'm a process engineer who works on writing code, I understand mistakes are made and are hard to find, but just blowing it off and allowing some users to spend money on a game that becomes obsolete mid way through is just lazy and shows how much the company really cares about its customers versus how much money it gets.
The storyline, the graphics, the music, the clever and challenging missions. This is in my top 5 favorite games of all.
Played it, disappointingly very short. The story is not as beautiful as Mechanarium. Not as great, enjoyable or as charming as Mechanarium.
Amazing visuals and rewarding puzzles.
I wish it just went on and on! I played it twice through and now Im just waiting for more? Hurry and develop a new one!
Samarost is beautiful and fantastically interactive. It makes me happy that other people appreciate the cheerful oddness. I want to meet them. Machinarium and Botanicula are two of my other all time favorite games. Please keep making them, we appreciate it!
Like the rest of the games by Amanita Design this game has beautiful graphics, a unique soundtrack and is both challenging and enjoyable. If you liked Botanicula or Machinarium you'll like this one.
