KimberlyShapik: The QuestWhy do the baddies always seem to strike at peaceful little sisters who are minding their own business? Shapik: The Quest, a darling point-and-click adventure by Pavel Podberezko, starts out in just this manner. Now you and your faithful bee companion must set out on an adventure to rescue her.

Click to walk or to interact with your environment, and watch your cursor for changes that indicate an interactive area. It's important to note that sometimes you have to walk to a different part of the screen before you'll be able to click certain hotspots. It will also occasionally be up to your bee to get to things out of your reach, so experiment until you find your way to the next level. The developer lists inspiration from Machinarium, though Samorost deserves a nod as well. The visuals and artwork are lovely, and the soundtrack enchanting. Though short, Shapik: The Quest is a wonderful way to sidetrack your day.

In level 8, I didn't see any drawings on the right side (or the left side). I had to brute force the dials. I couldn't see the final correct solution but I recall that

the leftmost one was horizontal. I'm not sure which way it was pointing, but I think it was 3 clicks from the way they started.

barbara, to find the hint for the dials:

The clue for how to set these is just to the right of where your character stands during this puzzle.

On the very right of the machine is a dial with a blue mark pointing upwards. It's faint and small. Follow this left a bit and there are 4 drawings of dials in a row (you want the bottom one) and this gives you the correct settings.

This game was lovely.

Even though it was undoubtedly heavily inspired by Samorost, not just in the visuals but in many of the sound effects, it still managed to have its own personality. A really, really cute one.

About level 8, I see them now, thanks sonicscrewdriver. I was looking on the wall of the whole cave, not the walls of the machine. (But I would have sworn I looked at every pixel of that whole screen and didn't see anything like the dials ...)

For those still having trouble with the dials

they should have the blue part of the switch pointing, from left to right, East West East North.

Or 1 click, 3 clicks, 3 clicks, 2 clicks.

Cute game, but annoying to play. Having to walk to specific places to even be able to interact with some things wouldn't be bad if it would walk all the way to where you clicked rather than walking partway there and stopping so you have to click again and again.

Tenzhi, I was annoyed by that too. The other part that bothered me was the three-color buttons on level 8:

There was no logical reason to require me to enter one of the codes before the other, so I wasted a bunch of time trying to enter 3-1-4, trying out various interpretations (count the first click, don't count the first click, etc.) until it seemed to accept it; and then I wasted some more time trying to enter 4-2-5 before giving up in frustration and reading the walkthrough, only to find out that you have to enter 4-2-5 first.

The furnace scene was a bit cryptic, and I thought I had to leave the other bug in the cage behind, but it was a very lovely game! 4/5

I am in LOVE with this game, it is so beautiful! I especially liked that it is not predictable and that you have to find the right way on your own.

Some point and click games are "self-walking", Shapik is amazing! I managed to finish without the walkthrough, bug thumbs up to Pavel - the creator!

I'm excited to play more games with Shapik!
