From my testing, here’s what you’ll need device-wise to run Machinarium smoothly:

- 2GB RAM
- Adreno 400 series GPU
- 1GB free storage space
Flagship phones with Snapdragon 865 can max out the graphics and resolution beautifully. But midrange chips can still run it fine if you lower settings a tad. Just be sure you got enough storage!
