Game Information

Available on:PCAug 31, 2016

Developer: Garage 227

Publisher: 1C Company

Genre: Platformer

Robots can have a heart!

Left to fend for himself after mankind abandoned the doomed planet Aurora, robot Kramer 227 must find a way to harvest energy and rescue his robotic friends before Aurora crashes into its sun. In his journey, Kramer will probe the planet itself and overcome challenging obstacles, all while trying to conserve his limited life energy to power himself and his friends on their way to safety.

Kramer will gather and share energy with his fellow robots, helping them escape dire situations and predicaments. He will have to jump and explore every platform in every corner of the 20 extensive levels to find all of his friends. Energy is running low on Aurora, so Kramer will have to collect batteries or use generators to recharge, as every action drains his power. Various power-ups collected along the way, such as jetpacks, energy spheres and temperature regulators, can help him on this crucial journey.

Shiny is an average platforming title that despite its various issues, can result in a fair bit of fun.

An uninspiring story, bugs and performance issues and frustrating gameplay makes Shiny a game I just cannot recommend for anyone.

With breathtakingly haunting audio and some nostalgic gameplay, Shiny is a wordlessly emotional story with a sympathetic hero that has all the potential to be a great experience.

In the end, I can’t help but feel as if Shiny could have been so much better than it ended up being. While its soundtrack does a very solid job of engrossing you in its established world, the aesthetically unpleasing presentation takes away from this emotional adventure. Some sluggish controls can usually be forgiven as well, but when a game relies this much on perfect planning and careful thinking, the gameplay has to be impeccable for it to work accordingly.
