Samorost 1 is short point-and-click adventure game. The goal is to help the little space gnome save his home asteroid from collision with another asteroid by solving diverse puzzles. It is a standalone Flash Player game.

The download contains executables for Mac OS X and Windows. Although the game was released in 2003, this version is dated 2010, presumably reflecting the use of a more recent version of Flash.

You can also play for free at the author’s web site. There are other mini games that can be played on this site for free.

The game sort of "works" in OS X 10.12. You can run the app to play the first section, but then it doesn't load the next. If you have Flash Player installed you can load the second section into that or your Flash-enabled web browser to play the rest ... or simply play it in the web browser from the website.

Amanita Design do make some great looking and sounding games, with some very clever ideas, but they are a bit too linear and sometimes it is difficult to know what you're supposed to be doing - sometimes you have to click on something only a few pixels wide.

It would be great to see them make something along the lines of the Monkey Island-type point-n-click adventures where you have a bit more freedom (although the solutions in those too were too obscure at times).
