Thought I would post to say that Machinarium on iOS currently has the ability to switch the language from the menu:
3  Machinarium / Machinarium iPad Version(s) / Re: Retina Display Support for iPad 3 (New iPad)? on: April 23, 2018, 05:57:34 pm
Hmm... Well, it seems Retina is a somewhat confusing term where the most important criterion is pixel density, or how many pixels per inch a given screen has, rather than the overall resolution. For example, the iPhone 4, the first Retina display, had a resolution of only 960 x 640. And on my old 4S (has the same resolution as the 4), Machinarium doesn’t display full screen—there are little horizontal bars running the length of both the top and bottom of the screen:

It's similar on my iPhone 7 Plus, but the bars are on the sides:

And I also have an iPad 6...the display size is 9.7”, and Machinarium has those black bars on the top and bottom of the screen:

So my assumption is that you’re referring to a similar issue, and perhaps those black bars on the top and bottom are even thicker when playing on a 12.9-inch iPad Pro, and maybe even with black bars on the sides as well. If so, I believe that's just a limitation of the game itself; even the PC version of the game looked like that when the game was released initially, as the maximum resolution was 1250 x 790. The developer explains this in more detail in this post:

Hey Jérôme. I'd asked Lukas from Amanita Design about this the other day and he'd said that Amanita is "planning to have some sort of collector's edition, but [they] haven't really decided about its final form yet". So stay tuned to Amanita's official Twitter or Facebook page and hopefully we'll hear more about the specifics before too long. :)

Thought I would add to this lovely Schulz thread by posting this silly mash-up of Peanuts and Stranger Things called...

Minit is a peculiar little adventure played sixty seconds at a time. Journey outside the comfort of your home to help unusual folk, uncover countless secrets, and overcome dangerous foes, all in hopes of lifting a rather unfortunate curse that ends each day after just one minute.
Here is the launch trailer:

And here's another trailer that shows some of the actual gameplay:

The official site has links to purchase the game:

I'd describe Minit as sort of a timed point-and-click game. It is definitely one of my favorite games of the last few years. Smiley

Just thought I would post to say that it seems the app is no longer available for purchase, at least on the U.S. store.

Ah, the iOS Notification Center...it does get in the way, yep. However, I’ve found that you can still grab an item and use it, even with that annoying pull-down tab thingy appearing and getting in the way. So the issue goes back to my earlier observation: you’re attempting to use the item on the wrong screen. Yes, you do use an item on that screen, but it is not that particular item. I guess I could give you a hint, but that might spoil it. :)

I was playing through the game again just now on my iPhone, and noticed one part (not 7, though) where I had an item in my inventory but couldn't use it because I wasn't on the screen where it needed to be used. Is it possible that's what's happening to you, Lala?

Ooh, good topic. Smiley

Let's see...

I love 'Budoar' from the Samorost 2 soundtrack. And also 'The Bottom' and 'Nanorobot Tune' from the Machinarium soundtrack. From the Samorost 3 soundtrack, my favorite is 'Going on an Adventure'.

Sorry I hadn't responded sooner...I've been sick as a dog lately.

Yeah, I agree with you that something is wrong. On my phone, I'm seeing that the inventory bar (as well as the menu options along the bottom) has the ends sort of clipped off when I click on the puzzle, though I can still see enough of the edge of the bulb to be able to tap on it and bring it down:

I'm thinking perhaps the reason why it's not totally cut off for me might be because I have a giant-sized iPhone 7 Plus with the bigger screen (and yes, I know you have an Android device, but I don't think that matters here??).

Now, even though you can't see the bulb in your inventory, I'm wondering if tapping your screen way up in the upper-left corner might allow you to drag it down anyway?
If not, there might be one last way to get to it by enabling cursor mode. To do this, you'll need to navigate to the SETTINGS window; it's the little gear icon located along the bottom of the screen after opening the main menu.
The default is TOUCH INPUT, which has no checkbox in the little circle:

If you tap on that circle, a checkmark will appear in it to indicate that you've switched to CURSOR INPUT. The rectangle here shows the slider bar which controls how fast the cursor moves, or tracks, when moving it with your finger:

I'd try to then roll up your cursor as far as you can in that upper-left corner, even past the edge of the screen, if you follow me, so that you can then grab the invisible bulb and drag it down. Then you can switch back to touch input and continue the game.

Edit: An interesting find! I tried enabling cursor input on my phone just to kind of play around with this, and I found that it fixed the inventory bar so that it's no longer clipped when the puzzle is clicked on. :) So hopefully that will also work for you. (And just a heads-up, but it's possible you might have to repeat this once you've gotten that last and final bulb.)
