We are getting feedback from people experiencing some troubles with Machinarium on their iPads that it doesn’t work properly or that they found a bug. First of all thanks for the feedback, it’s really helpful! We are sorry for the bugs. One update is already on the way and another one is in the works. Also here is a couple of advices for those who have more serious troubles with the game:

1. If you bought the iPad2 version of Machinarium and you have only iPad1, please contact Apple App Store support for refund or wait until you update your iPad to iPad2 or iPad3.

2. If you bought the iPad2 version of Machinarium and the game is crashing even you have the iPad2, please do the following, it should help:
Double-tap the home button to see the list of running apps. Press and hold on Machinarium icon and in a moment a little circle with a – in it will appear on every app. Tap the circle on all the apps in the bottom bar to completely close them. Then start the game again.

3. If the above doesn’t help, try to restart your iPad:
Press and hold the Sleep/Wake button for a few seconds until the red “slide to power off” slider appears, and then slide the slider.
Press and hold the Sleep/Wake button until the Apple logo appears.

If u r on an iPad n u double tap “home” as u advised to fix bugs it only enlarges the screen. That’s how an iPad works! I can’t even get past the part of getting his arm n leg!!! Very frustrating n there r no instructions to help so u have no idea if the game is bugging or if u r! I want a refund n am so disappointed.

hi cindy, you should probably check the walkthrough – the one in the game or on youtube (just look for machinarium walkthrough on youtube). also if you close the game (push the home button) and then double push the same button, it will open the bar with running apps. It works, try it. Of course you need iPad2 – that’s the one with cameras on the front and back side of the tablet.

I am using the iPad 2. I am on the second screen and get the robot to place the cone into the paint. I already did what you proposed above but still doesn’t work. All it keeps doing is eating the cone. I like the concept of this game but if I get very frustrate I’ll drop it and won’t recommend it to anyone. Please help really like to do puzzles.

i have iPad 2 and was playing the game now I’ve closed it down but the music is still playing…what do I do to get music off? I already double tapped the home button and the game is not still open.

I own an iPad 2 and have not been able to get the game to work. It crashes after the first image is posted. I’ve tried uninstalling and re-installing as well as the recommended option to double tap the home screen and close any other running apps. I want to play this game but if not resolved, I will want my money back

6. Becky
September 11, 2011

I can’t see any way to return to the start page of this game, it seems that you can save multiple game files but there doesn’t seem to be a way to start a second game? Each time I close it down I just come back to the first game I started when I open it up with no option to load a different/new game.

What about reseting the iPad? Does it helps? http://www.maclife.com/article/howtos/fix_crashing_apps_your_iphone_and_ipad

Remember, iPad has operating system how we remember it from PC era, it’s just not so visible for ordinary people. Reseting the system helps to clear memory leaks which can be in the system itself or other apps. It does not have to be problem with the Machinarium. The game is just huge and requires the memory which may be unavailable.

I wish to report a bug in the water reservoir. Found a 3 valve handles, tried to fit them onto the valves and 2 of them disappeared altogether from my inventory list before I managed to solve the puzzle. Really frustrating as I am deep into the game and had no previous saves. Hope you can look into fixing the bug. :(

Is there a guide? I have tried all the recommendations that you have suggested and I still can’t get this game started!!!!!!

Hi, i installed this game but it crashes right after starting a new game. Over and over again. What should i do. Uninstalling it and then reinstalling will cost me money i guess.

Dont get this the wrong way, I really like the design and gameplay of Machinarium and i bought it for the Mac. The One Thing i couldnt stand was the roaring fan of my MacBook. When
you announced the iPad Version, I thought: Great! It will be hard work to Code everything in ObjC but finally a smooth experience with a great input method and usability.
And now this? A “cheap” Adobe Air port?
I would have gladly spend more (10$) than the current price for a (tehnically) decent piece of software.

For anybody needing help with puzzles, there are lots of good walkthroughs on the web. Try this one http://www.justadventure.com/Walkthroughs/TallyHo/Walkthroughs/Machinarium/machinarium.htm or just Google it: http://www.google.com/search?q=machinarium+walkthrough

If you want to get to the initial screen so you can create a new game, you can follow these steps:
1) If you’re playing the game, press the home button to go to the Home screen.
2) Double-press the home button to bring up the row of apps at the bottom of the screen.
3) Press and hold on the Machinarium icon in the row of apps until it starts to wiggle.
4) Press the red delete icon in the upper corner of the Machinarium icon to quit the game.
5) Press the home button again.
6) Restart the Machinarium app by pressing its icon on the Home screen.

Hope that helps!

ps. Developers: that’s really annoying – you should add a “start new game” button to the menu!

Hi there,
really nice game, but since i’ve closed the app last time it’s not possible to resume. All slots are full, but it’s not possible to load one. Restarting the iPad2 didn’t work, too. It’s only possible to start a new game which is very annoying.
Please help!!!

@tomas Re: ObjC, This comment by ‘trevorde’ (left on http://www.tuaw.com/2011/09/12/daily-ipad-app-machinarium/) addresses your complaint wisely (IMHO).
“If they were to do so [rewrite it in Objective-C] the only things they could reuse would be the artwork and sounds. All the animations and interactivity would have to be rewritten. This is a huge cost in terms of time to market, development, testing and support. What they have done is to take a pragmatic, business decision which will maximise (sic) their return on investment. Further, the work they have done will also be used in releasing Android and PlayBook versions.”

There are so many artistically beautiful and technically great Apps in the AppStore and it dont seems like they have a problem with the revenue from the AppStore and since Machinarium was very popular before, it was clear that they will get in the Top10 very quickly. There is also the undeniable fact that iOS users are more likely to pay for their Apps and I would argue that they could have made twice as much money on this platform than on all the others combined.
And btw. Playbook,really?
To say that iOS is the cause of the crashes and all this blabla is simply a lie and I am suprised that Apple allowed this bullshit in the description of the game. The only time you should have to restart your ipad is when you update it.

31. Jan
September 22, 2011

The game is beautiful to look at and I don’t mind the lack of clues etc. I’ve got the basic idea and managed to get to the point where the little character has to extend and jump up to an overhead pole and get along it to pick up a piece on the other side. Only problem is s/he won’t jump up. I’ve been back to the book and looked about ten times to see if I’ve missed something. It’s getting really boring!

Okay I would like to start again but that doesn’t seem to be an option. I’m just stuck at that point. Either there is a bug or I just haven’t got what it takes. How the hell would I know? but I’ve got better things to do.

So I give up.

Got the umbrella from the lady but now the robot won’t use it from inventory. I’ve watched several walkthroughs. Already downloaded recent update. Did the double press iPad home button and minus to close the game. Turned the iPad completely off. He still won’t take the stupid umbrella and I want to keep playing because this is fun and I love the graphics and music.

33. Alicia

I really liked this game! Great graphics, cute story. A little hard to catch on at first but then, I don’t really play video games – more of a bookworm girl. Other than a few small issues (already resolved) I had no problems with it and plan to show it off to all my friends!

Looking forward to seeing more games like this in the future. (preferably without the smoking prisoner for those of us little robots with asthma….)

I give up – I’ve deleted and reinstalled about 10 times – the simplest thing this little guy will not do . Very frustrating . I can’t even leave a comment in the app store anymore !!! Please fix the freezing and that he will not take the item after holding it on his head for 10 min. Ridiculous !

I just love all of your games and have played them years ago on your website. They are tricky and it needs some time to find your way thru.
Unfortunatly I found a bug, when little Robot is in jail and makes the cigarette, he gets the larger arm from his inmate. As I tried to reach out to the next room this arm disapeared and can not be found anymore.

Yup, me too…stuck in the reservoir with the three red handles found and attached but try to move on to check that the water flow has stopped and surprise surprise!! Two of the three handles disappear and that’s the end of that. Can’t move on if I can’t stop the water flow!!! Hoping an update soon appears cause I’d love to carry on an see the little guy reunited with his girl….best regards. MS

September 29, 2011

Ok, here’s the thing. Everything has been working fine until I was in the furnace room. I followed the walk thru and open up the control box, ur,HELLO? There is NO CONTROL in the box. Nothing is inside the box, its blank. And knowing that I need to adjust the control to proceed, I won’t be able to continue the game. What shud I do? If it cannot be fixed then I would like my MONEY BACK. It’s very very disappointing now. Please help me fix it.

40. Jason
September 29, 2011

Love the game. Only issue that I would like fixed is for the game to flip when I rotate my ipad2. If I’m holding it but have to sit it on my stand and have to rotate the ipad2 to do so, the game does not rotate.

Can you send an update to fix, please?

I look forward to more of your games!

41. Monica

I’m stuck in the furnace room too…. I get picked up by the crane and then it just holds me, suspended in the air and won’t let me swing to platform… I have prev got past this point and reverted back to this stage as later on the bug in the cells ate my broom so I restarted as I couldn’t get it back to knock cell guard off his chair. ( poss another bug?) very frustrating!

October 2, 2011

Hi! I had a lot of fun playing this pretty game! I downloaded it Friday the 30th for my iPad and finished it last night – I could barely put it down, it’s so pretty and mood-influencing. I did get frustrated a couple of times trying to get the game to acknowledge correct actions, for example getting the sweet cook robot to do what she’s supposed to do with the hose (final step) took a million tries, a break too calm down, and a million more tries. It happened again later when I needed to do it again and also on a few other scenes. Someone less persistent than I would probably have given up. it seems like in each case the area to which you’re supposed to drag the hose isn’t large and/or “sensitive” enough or something (am not a programmer but seems that it has to work like that). It didn’t crash but it did freeze up a couple of times. Closing and re-opening the ap worked fine.

Thank you for designing such a pretty, fun game with so many kinds of puzzles. Can’t wait to see what else
you’re working on!

47. Sandi
October 2, 2011

I also had the trouble with the crane like Joanne describes. I had to close the game and re-open it to reset the scene. Adding a way for him to get free would be helpful. I also remembered that getting him to take a few objects was tricky. The “help” manual was very helpful, in most cases.

guys, just wanted to say THANKS for a killer game. Machinarium is wonderful. I completed the whole thing in 3 days as I was hooked. The visuals and sounds are stellar. Hats off to the team who made it come to life. I really wish you had other games for the iPad as I am hooked. Thanks again. I find myself unable to play other games now, so please come up with a new game as soon as you can!

Great game but stuck on last level with the musical puzzle. Have tried the same combination as stated in the walkthrough but stairs don’t rise up. Seems to be a problem with the game i think. Frustrating as it’s the last part of the game. :(

51. Mousey
October 3, 2011

Ok, I’ve tried the game over again for the third time and still can’t get passed the three red keys to turn the water off…I’ve collected and attached all three then two dissappear without turning the water off. What kind of game are we dealing with? I won’t try a fourth time, just want my money back or reinstall the game!!!!

it seems loads of people are getting frustrated when they get stuck and dont know what to do, isnt that the fun of it people??? discovering the answers and working out the puzzles?? I’ve finished this game on pc and it was so much fun and very challenging too but that’s what this game is about, the puzzles are very clever and unique so dont give up people!
It’s a shame that its such a memory hog and requires a ipad2 only, hopefully you can address most of these bugs too. good luck.

I’m essentially completely stuck at this point in the game. There doesn’t seem to be anything I can do.

October 28, 2011

iPad2 has significantly more RAM (512 MB vs 256 MB) and a faster CPU (dual core A5 vs A4) than the 1st generation iPad, which makes a ton of difference for large games like Machinarium. As even iPad2 owners need to close up background applications to get good playability, it appears impossible to optimize the game enough to fit within the original iPad’s HW constraints.

Fantastic game. Beatiful art, fun music, and addicting gameplay. Couldn’t put it down.
I found a bug in the old style video game where you must shoot 30ish bad guys. On the screen where there are 4 choices for going down, when I went down the leftmost one, my guy became stuck in the wall of the below screen. Since I was stuck in a wall, I had to power off to get game working again.
Other than that issue, no other problems. Really looking forward to what you create next. Do u have a mailing list?

Game crashes after first scene every time – just switches off and when you go back starts again… Frustrating as looks like it would be a great game… So disappointed.

Frst, let me say I enjoyed the game – triggy puzzles with such great attention for detail!

However the game is advertised in multiple languages including German which is not the case! Even so the language doesn’t matter in this game, it is confusing the customer and should be changed in my opinion.

Stuck on the maze level inside the robot, nearly at the end and the bloody thing gets stuck between screens when you move from top to bottom. Shame no one knows how to product test. Can you please sort or refund my money. Really pissed off, can’t finish game without this part.

After a couple of hours of gameplay I lost all sound. Tried closin the app, turned my iPad2 off&on, still no sound. Everything else seems to work.

Minor bug : after the robber’s card playing room is flooded you can go back to the bar. When you peek through the door with the window the water will suddenly disappear and the robbers are playing cards again.

Thanks Laurent! That worked! Everyone kept talking about the amazing soundtrack.. Was very frustrated that I could not get any sound. Reloaded app, turned iPad on and off numerous times. Argh! This game looks so complex and yet they managed to reverse the programming for sound with the iPad mute button. Funny.

On the back alley stage I have played the instruments in the wrong order and cannot get the radio to be thrown down. Is there a way of doing this or is there a level reset so I can try again? If there isn’t a level reset button is this coming in an update as it is really going to ruin the game if I have to start from the beginning again.

139. Flora
March 31, 2012

I purchased this game for my new iPad 3, and not only is there no sound, but the game has completely frozen on the second screen and will not start over when I close out the app. Looks like it will be so fun to play, but it appears that I either need to be able to uninstall/ reinstall or a patch needs to be installed in a future update. Kind of a bummer since I paid full price and got a whole five minutes out of it. Please fix!

140. Flora
March 31, 2012

Update: okay, after trying the steps that you’ve listed above–closing out all other apps and restarting my iPad–the game is now working. Same with the sound if I plug headphones in. I might rerelease those instructions above for people who are new to iPads with the iPad 3 and who are just discovering your game. Between the old date (September of last year) and the first couple of sentences, I didn’t see a
Reason to read the whole way through that statement the first two times I visited this page ( and I don’t seem to be the only one). Maybe at least put a title in bold above it that says “read through the following to troubleshoot”, or something, to make it a bit clearer.

Now that it’s working, it’s a real pleasure to play. Really cool game–

I’m at the very end of the game on top of the tower. I know I have to play the tones on the musical box to get the stairs to slide out. I played the tone, even getting the cheat sheet to look up the sequence 1-4-2-3-5-2-3. I did that sequence but nothing at all happens. Any ideas? I can be reached at anniebamalucy@charter.net I sure would appreciate the assist. Btw… I’m playing this on an iPad2 and this is the first problem I’ve had.

Looking forward to a Machinarium 2!

To the whole team who put this app together: I have worked in several apps highly praised by Apple, a few top 10s in their categories, an app of the week, etc. and I know all the work that goes into doing something like this. I was introduced to the app by one of my developers and I’m amazed at the quality of the app from all perspectives (story, game play, art, sound, user experience). I have gone about 5 scenes into the story and I can’t wait to go all the way through. This app is an inspiration to all of us who are trying to create new experiences on these devices.

Too bad about the iPad 1 and I’m sorry those reviews have taken some of the thunder of this app but you should all be very proud stil.

Great job!

I bought this from an IPad 1. Does not work. (Which the SW tells you AFTER you have bought the game try to play it.)
Nothing in your advertising talks about hardware requirements (IPad 2).
You should clarify this in your advertising and/or simply not allow it to load if an IPad 1 owner places the order.

I give up on this game. I’ve watched the walk through videos and it still is impossible. Cursor/item placement is very picky and it is almost at some places when using my finger. After watching the videos I realize that the whole game is pointless. A total waste of my money.

Hello! First I want to thank you for creating such great games. Machinarium is my favorite of them. It looks magnificently .But it could look much better on iPad 3. I have not bought the game for the iPad because it does not support Retina. I wish you to add her support, I am sure that no one I want to.This is justified by the costs.

My problem is a bit odd … played the whole game and got to the mind game at the end where you have to shoot the red guys in the robot’s brain. I got the key, got the gun, but it won’t shoot. I have restarted it twice and still nothing. I get to the guys but nothing happens. Is there something else I am supposed to do? How do I make the gun actually shoot? I hate to sound stupid but I don’t see anywhere to click to make the gun shoot and tapping the screen does not do it. A little help please .. I want to get past this part.

200. Kathy

I just updated to iOS 6.0.1 on my iPad 2, and now I can not start Machinarium. I get a popup window requesting my Apple ID username and password which I submit, but the app does not come up. So, I deleted it and tried to download again. Now, I am being asked to pay for the app again. A window says my account is being accessed from a new computer or device, but it is not. Would you please help me get the app I have already paid for? Am I going to have to reload all apps every time there is an iOS update? Thank you.

I bought and installed on the iPad mini. Really enjoyed the game but it just keeps crashing! Had to constantly save every time I achieved something. Finally decided to re-install to see if that fixed it,. No success and no saved data so am back at the start and it keeps crashing still. I give up! I would like either a fix or a refund. Such a shame!

I am also getting stuck in the game shooting at the red guys, my little guy is stuck and cannot move, sort of between screens….reading through the comments at least three others have had the same problem…… If I close and start again, won’t I have to start from my last save? And at least one person said they still freeze in the same place after doing this anyway…..also it doesn’t appear to be possible to exit this game and re-enter mid way through like most of the other puzzles….it’s just stuck there…….

Many thanks for this article. I would also like to state that it can always be hard when you find yourself in school and starting out to initiate a long credit rating. There are many students who are merely trying to make it through and have a long or favourable credit history are often a difficult thing to have.

I’d like the ability to flush all memory so I can start with a pristine game, no “Resume” and no slots. My workaround for now is to delete and re-download the game.

“I am using IPad4 IOS 7 Beta 5. The Game isn’t rotating while i rotate my ipad. It takes up half the screen. Right and left area is cropped.”
Same issue on IOS7 beta 6, the screen is cropped and doesn’t rotate in landscape mode.

I purchased it for both mac desktop and my iPad retina.
Desktop app works fine.

But on my iPad it plays the game in portrait mode and not landscape.
So it actaully cuts parts of the world off.

Any idea what I need to do?

I tried reset ect. But same deal over and over.

Please help I can’t play it.

Love the game, however like others I’m running iOS7 beta 6, and are having issues with cropping of the screen to the left and the right which means that I can’t proceeds past the second screen. Please investigate.

I can duplicate the ios7 beta 6 issue as previously reported. I didn’t test on earlier beta releases.

It hasn’t worked right through all the iOS 7 betas. I reported the portrait mode problem on twitter a while ago to you guys. I tries to display the landscape mode in portrait and cuts the game off.

It’s getting really slow on iOS 7. It’s very hard to play now… Is there an update coming soon?

I have an iPad 4 running iOS 7. The second screen of the game is cropped left and there is no light pole for me to proceed past this screen. Warn your potential customers using iOS 7 that there is a bug that needs to be fixed on your App Store display! I want my money back if this isn’t fixed very soon, otherwise this constitutes fraud!

Ever since the iOS 7 update, it has not played in landscape mode. It cuts off parts of the game. I have downloaded all the machinarium updates- but nothing has helped. :(

Hi, I have IPAD2. I bought Machinarium 1 Year ago ago on my former ipad2 I played it. All was fine. Now I have a new IPAD 2. The Appstore is not showing the download Button (ICloud) . I also cannot rebuy it. There is no button. If I try to install it from iTunes it syncs with Ipad2. It shows the Icon on homescreen saying “INSTALLATION” After that the app completely disapears. In Itunes i can delete it and try again. Same way…it says Installation. After that disapears from Homescreen. Please help

On the screen where a jailer robot is shooting at a target with a gun, I am able to knock him over and steal the bullets, but when I am back in the tunnel underneath him I am no longer able to move left or right. I just seem to be stuck in the tunnel unable to do anything.

I am stucked in the defusing the bomb room. When i enteredbit the wacuum cleaner was alreday near the chandelier.
I’ve tried to move it following the instruction i found on a walkthrough list
I walk to the switch on the left side of the screen and pull it down 4 times but the wacuum doesn’t move and i cannot take the scissors and proceed.

Do you have any suggestion? Is it a bug or am i doing something wrong?

Thank you

I have exactly the same issue as in the 240th comment. I believe to pull the switch down 4 times means to do it consecutively without stopping. On PC we just use the mouse to drag switch up and down 4 times. But on iPad, the only way to make the switch move is by tapping at it. And each time I tapped on it, the robot only moves the switch once and then stand by. I try to tap on the switch with very high frequency. But the robot would only do once -> standby -> do once -> standby, never continuously.

I hope the team pay attention to us. I love this game and I’ve come so far. Please fix it and let us rescue Joseph’s girlfriend and they will live happily together ever after

I am on the lift on the city wall. There is gas in the engine and the star puzzle has been solved (red levers on top, gray levers on bottom) , however, I am not able to lift the lever to take me up. I have an iPad 2. I’m just wondering if this is a known bug. Thank you!

Same as 240+241: vacuum cleaner on exiting elevator already under the chandelier, and seems turned off, not humming or anything. cord doesn’t seem connected, dissapears under carpet, and the electricity box on the right can’t be cicked, everytime i exit to the bathroom. moving lever down doesn’t do anything. whether 4, 8 times in a row…. the cleaner won’t move.

Bummer, Seems to be a bug, i have the iphone version bought a few days ago… runnng it on iphone 5s iOS 7.1.1

244. miwubai
May 11, 2014

UPDATE: on the forum found a comment identical problem: SOLVED:

i was following a ‘walkthrough’ and i think after te update of the software the order changed:
as soon as you come out of the elevator the electricity is off, and the FIRST step is to put it on, clicking in the middle of the lower two corners of the electricity box next to the batroom door. if you miss, or are not in handreach of the box, you’ll end up going into the bathroom… so this makes finding the right spot to click tricky!

now i can continue!

Hi, I couldnt move with an object while I was saving a dog so I just started the game from the beginning (nothing worked, neither restarting iPad). Now I got out from the lift and I’m really angry because. I can’t move with a robot (it’s the thing you have to get to the other room)!!!!

Current rev is great. The highlighting of inventory objects when they’re active really answers some of the complaints about the fairness of the play.
It looks like saved games and slots are stored using Game Center as the cloud. I’d like to save my achievements but delete my last game and all my slots. The closest I”ve found to that is to delete all Game Center data when uninstalling and re-installing the software–and that loses all my achievements.
Nonetheless, I might go ahead and do it, as I’m not competing with anybody.
I’d also welcome an option to switch to Czech, as part of learning a little Czech, beyond “Dobry den” :)

I have an I-pad 2 and it won’t let me combine items in the jail cell level. It’s very frustrating as I paid $5 when I saw that it had good reviews…
