Machinarium is a point-and-click adventure game filled with fun and devious puzzles, released in 2009 for PC & Mac. Set in a richly detailed world and filled with charming characters, the game features a little robot hero who’s been thrown out to the scrap yard behind the city and must return to confront the Black Cap Brotherhood and rescue his robot girlfriend. Featuring dozens of beautiful hand-drawn environments and a meticulously crafted musical score, Machinarium is a visual marvel and a pleasure for the senses.
When the PS3 version was released, Amanita Design called it the best version of the game. In it, they added lots of new features — like the ability to zoom in to get a closer look at the scene, magnetic hotspots, Trophies and more.
The Vita version makes no compromises. In fact, it’s even better! It includes all the enhancements from the PS3 version, but the developers have added some new features to complement PS Vita’s capabilities. You can now control the game not only with the system’s analog sticks and buttons, but also directly with your fingers on the touch screen and rear touch panel. Amanita Designimproved the zoom feature too, so it’s more convenient to play the game in a portable capacity.
The graphics, music and sounds are presented at full quality, and everything runs smoothly and looks as beautiful as ever on Vita’s gorgeous 5″ OLED display. For the best audio experience, put on some nice headphones so you can fully enjoy the award-winning soundtrack by Floex.
Amanita Design also integrated PSN leaderboards: see how quickly you can finish the game, and how your time stacks up against the rest of the world (compete for the best scores in Machinarium’s minigames, as well).
Machinarium will be available on PS Vita for $6.99.
