The fifth episode of the Submachine series. This time we go back to the very first submachine ever built - historically speaking. It was created by an unknown scientist in the early 20th century. This is the place where it all started.



Rated 3.5 / 5 stars

not a classic, but good

I don't think that this was as good of some of its predecessors, but it's still a solid installment in the series.

The cool things about the game were the same as usual: great ambiance, the trademark graphics, creepy music, cyberpunky setting, and cryptic puzzles that I must say were more challenging then the other SM games.

Some of the letdowns that I had personally were: the relatively short length of the game, especially coming off of SM 4; and most of all, the lack of any intrigue. Like I said before, a vital part to this game that motivates people to play is the mystery surrounding submachine--I kept playing through this one hoping to find some creepy letter from Mur, or gain new revelations into the crystals or submachine, but there wasn't anything like that to be uncovered.

All in all, it's still a good game and I'm eager to play the next one cuzzz I have nothing to do tonight, so yeah I'll go do that. I'm still wondering where this whole storyline is you have some masterplan, or are you making it up as you go along?

When i completed episode 2 i was left wondering about the crystal. And this game told me about them. Awesome!

2nd Favorite

Loved this one too, although the notes sometimes were less than helpful and occasionally even confusing. But it was still fun, although the key cards got really confusing at the end there. Too many combos for too few cards. Hard to keep straight which ones were which.

Once again...

Another great game from the Submachine series! Can't wait to play six! I loved the ending, it got me hooked to find out what happens next! The music is perfect for this game as well. Keep up the amazing work.

Old-School Submachine!

The dark atmosphere of Submachine 4 continues in this one, but in a more rusty, bricky way... awesome!
