When everything is working right, it's hard not to think of the human body as a fine-tuned machine, with all its different parts working in concert to get you through the day. That's the premise behind Homo Machina. Each everyday bodily function is run by a crew of factory workers, and it's your job to help them complete their tasks. These jobs are puzzles that test both your brainpower and your reflexes. Some are simple, and some are much more complicated.

The catch is that you never quite know what you're getting into ... literally. There's very little in the way of hints or instructions throughout the game, so many times you're left on your own to figure out exactly what you need to do to progress. In spite of this, Homo Machina is a fantastic game that not only teases the mind but also encourages you to think about and learn more about the fascinating functions of the human body.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
