Platform games on the Xbox One haven’t been as frequent as I would have liked. Who doesn’t love running through levels, bouncing on enemy heads, avoiding traps and pitfalls, while finding secrets in the level design. Well with Garage227’s new platform game you can experience all those things once again. Are you ready for Shiny?

Available right now for £7.99 from the Microsoft Store, Shiny will have you playing as a robot that is trying to single-handedly save his friends and the doomed world. Over twenty levels of fun are promised with jumping, jetpacking, and energy sphere-ing, all against an amazing looking world. Shiny is all about saving lives, rather then taking them through bloodshed and violence.

But is it any good? Well, our review is live and should be checked out prior to you hitting the big purchase button. If you don’t fancy reading, then make sure you check out the trailer.

Game Description

SHINY – 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 about saving lives, so it contains no blood or violence. Enjoy non-violent, platforming action. Explore 20 extensive levels.
