Submachine 4: the Lab

Submachine. The game in which with every puzzle solved, every chapter finished you fall deeper and deeper into mystery. Fourth chapter takes us to the heart of the submachine, the place where all questions will be finally answered. Or were finally answered. Once again it's time to ask youself - is it possible that you're too late?


Top marks in all catagories.

Beautifully crafted, awesome atmosphere and engrossing gameplay. This game has it all.

Frustratingly, i got stuck with where to put my tiles. The walkthrough wasn't helpful. Any hints? Random clicking got me nowhere.

Once again

you've given us a GREAT puzzle game. I love it. Keep up the freaking aMAZing work.

One comment I did want to make though: I feel like Submachine 4 has a lot more abstract items and stuff that, without the walkthrough, it would be near impossible to figure out. I mean, the hammer and screwdriver were self explanatory - but an orb? I thought maybe the next game could use more "household"-type items that users will know better what to do with.

Otherwise, GREAT game. You're incredibly talented.

there was a note about the orb and what to do with it exaclty. Find it, charge the laser, break it. :P

but in some way you're right,. I';; keep an eye on that.

Amazing Game!!!


what more can i say??? nothing really, this game is amazing and everytime you fetch a new one out you out do yourself even more :)

something i noticed though, there is actually 22 hidden blue balls hahaha ;)

anyway again like ive said the game was awesome and i look forward to the next installment that you fetch out


two words: the wii

this game was pretty cool, and very challenging, for me at least. the only that would make it better is if it was wii compatible.


Have played all the Submachine games, but this one is probably the best.

Loved the atmosphere, was missing in the third one compared to the creepier second one. Good use of 'other' people to make you think others had died exploring the areas. I really liked the way it tied in with the previous games and the secret area added a unique personal touch.

All these games are clearly well thought out and I hope to see another, though the ending seems ambiguous as to whether that will happen.

Sequel or not, keep up the atmospheric adventure games!
