Action-platformers are by no means a rare sight in gaming, but Tyler: Model 005 looks to offer something different as it takes us back to the 1950s and lets us loose as a robot.
Tyler is a miniature robot who’s been powered down for many years, until one day an uncontrollable thunderstorm sparks him back to life. He must figure out where his creator is and what has happened to his home during the time that’s passed. In the way though are rats, spiders and a multitude of other obstacles to overcome and puzzles to solve in this 3D platformer. Light is the source of his power, so should Tyler become overwhelmed by too much darkness, he’ll power down again.
As such a tiny robot, many everyday items are huge in comparison, with things like chairs and stairs impeding progress. To deal with the enemies, Tyler can handle a variety of weapons, such as boxing gloves, a bolt-blade and cherry bombs. Upgrades are earnable too, providing a little added help for the journey ahead, whilst a wide assortment of outfits can be worn by our little robot.
