About this game

**Winner of Excellence in Innovation by the International Mobile Gaming Awards**

Program little office workers to solve puzzles. Be a good employee! The machines are coming... for your job.

Human Resource Machine is a puzzle game for nerds. In each level, your boss gives you a job. Automate it by programming your little office worker. If you succeed, you'll be promoted up to the next level for another year of work in the vast office building. Congratulations!

Don't worry if you've never programmed before - programming is just puzzle solving. If you strip away all the 1's and 0's and scary squiggly brackets, programming is simple, logical, beautiful, and something that anyone can understand and have fun with! Are you already an expert? There will be extra challenges for you.

From the creators of World of Goo and Little Inferno. Have fun! Management is watching.

5/5 if not for the screen rotation bug. Screen auto-rotation is too sensitive and activates too often, flipping the screen upside-down. Also, there is no setting to turn off music and SFX. A game to teach programming, so it's heavily based in math and logic. Even if you have programming experience, it's still fun to play but will not be as challenging. However, trying to solve the optional optimization challenges (for size and speed) makes it more interesting. You can't backup your progress (I think), so it makes this more re-playable for me.

This is a delightful and addictive game that I already had on PC. Unfortunately, on the mobile version, the tiles are tiny and difficult to read. Also, the size & speed optimization challenges (which account for 90% of the gameplay) are harder to find in this version. Make sure you talk to the boss to see them - without them the biggest challenge is reading the tiny tiles!

I enjoy this game but it's genuinely infuriating at times with it's half baked faux vertical screen orientation support, you can't change/mute the volume (who listens to music?), and how you can't control the inputs for testing. I'm testing my alphabetizer code for issues when outputting the first word, but I've gone some 30 attempts without running into that scenario. Let me use one of predefined inputs or continue using a previous input set and I'll instantly increase my rating.
