A beautiful robot puzzle game.

Machinarium is a puzzle adventure by the independent Czech gaming powerhouse Amanita Design. Set in a lush, dystopian world full of broken robot parts, your job is to guide a robot through a series of increasingly difficult puzzles. The gameplay is simple but fun (though challenging for younger kids). Machinarium is more of a thinking game than an action game although there are a few action sequences throughout. In addition to the game’s world-class animation, the app features evocative sound design that helps bring it to life.

*Note: there are bouts of mild robot-versus-robot violence.
