Gremlin joins forces with a unique group of organic companions and makes his way from the top branches of a plant, down to the roots, solving puzzles as he goes. Can he save the world from the evil black spiders without learning to speak Botula?

Got the game yesterday from Steam. Was worth it for the price (8 Euros), but I found it way too short... and too easy. Machinarium had better puzzles, I think.
It was however fun to play and watch - for the price I definitely recommend it!

I don't get the way too short part. duh It took me plenty of time to play especially for the price, since it's not priced to be a full 20 hour+ adventure game. If you don't peek at a walkthrough and if you try and get all the cards and not miss one interactive object in each scene, the game is quite a decent length. It's a game meant to be savored.

Well, it took me 2 hours, I got almost all of the cards, haven't peaked in any walkthrough... I'm not complaining, like I said, for the price I recommend it - but that's how it was for me smile

Wha-hoo! That's a very organic and fun review, Gremlin! The only thing I would add would be that it is also available for the Intel Macs.

I've been through the game several times and am still short 2 critter cards. I'm going to replay it again soon.

Well, here I go being grumpy again. I didn't really care for it all that much. I'm not terribly fond of having to go from room to far away room to get an inventory item and I'm not nuts about mazes. If that second leaf map made any sense to someone else, it didn't to me. It was cute but I tired of it pretty quickly. Honestly, I liked Samorost 1 and 2 much better.
