CLARC is an isometric, grid-based puzzle game with fast-paced arcade elements. It features comic style visuals in various different graphical themes, from the inside of a chaotic factory to the surface of Mars to the interior of an intruding enemy spaceship where you think, run, and fight through heaps and heaps of carefully designed puzzle and action areas.
Our hero, Clarc #37, is a simple, hard-working maintenance robot, living in a decaying nuclear missile factory. Ever since the old supercomputer has disappeared, the rest of the facility has fallen into utter chaos. The discovery that diesel has thrilling effects on robotic circuits lead to a fierce shift in priorities: Every robot has since been focusing on drinking instead of working. Everyone except Clarc. So when a less-than-peaceful spaceship enters the stage to disarm and dismantle this out-of-control doomsday device of a partying factory, Clarc is the one to save the day. He has to overcome his programming to rescue his fellow robots and, of course, his newfound friend, the lovely atomic bomb, Clara.

I've had this game on the Ouya, iOs and now PC and it's about as great as puzzle games get. The characters are lovable, the story is fun and it looks great. The music is catchy and does not get annoying and graphically it's beautiful.
Most importantly though, the puzzles, the controls, the feel of the game is perfection. It's very challenging, but extremely rewarding when youread more succeed. Failure is quickly erased for another chance and there is no time spent sitting around. You're right back into the game and right back into trying to figure out the mysteries of the puzzles.
The locations are varied and the dialogue is humorous, without being overbearing. You owe it to yourself to check this out. It's an absolutely fantastic gem.

A very good puzzle game. The nature of puzzles are varied so that you don't get bored easily. Sometimes you need to use your creativity to solve puzzles. At some stages, killer robots will appear. To deal with these killer robots, you probably need to move around your robot a bit quickly. Other than that, the pace of the game is very relaxing. According to some review sites, thereread more should be 25 stages. I so far finished 8 stages. It took me about four hours to reach this stage. Then the length of the game should not be that short. Graphics is pretty nice. If you are a puzzle game fan you won't be regretted to buy this game.

This looked like it had a lot going for it when I picked it up and for the first few levels I indeed had an enjoyable time. However, the puzzles pretty soon became a case of same old, same old (admittedly it must be difficult creating yet another brainteaser based on the same limited dynamic), but later on some were so irredeemably awkward and irritating that any pleasure I wasread more still having quickly dwindled. The music also began to grate and it became clear that the story (what there is of it) had been tagged on as little more than an excuse to break up the puzzle solving monotony. Perhaps its because the character you play as is a mechanical as opposed to living thing, or simply that the game was ultimately too thin and quickly overstayed its welcome, but as of this review it has been relegated to the 'have another go if I haven't got anything better to do' pile, which is both a disappointment and a shame as the initial impressions were good.
