About

Earth is being reconstructed and that's bad!
Gizmo is a Saturday-morning 3D platformer inspired by 90s classics of the genre.

All humans have been put to sleep except for the ingenious Doctor Bolt who is reconstructing the planet into a fully mechanised one! The only problem is that this has taken a long time and he ought to be stopped. Earth is now one huge construction site built by Dr Bolt's population of robots!

Collapse into canister form and roll around Arctic Base 4, bouncing off robot heads and slamming into droids at high velocity.

Find the transmission beacons among the pipes and platforms, listen to Dr Bolt's broadcasts and discover what's behind that giant locked door.Features
  • One level and a TON of stuff to do in it! You can either take your time and finish the level normally or you can collect all the hidden beacons, kill all the enemies and smash all the barrels.
  • We love high skill ceilings and Gizmo is no exception. For skilled players there is a secret door that will start to close after 60 seconds, leading to a bonus area!
  • And of course, you're timed throughout the whole thing. Gizmo has a surprisingly high level of finesse when speed running and there is a ton of moves and surprising ways of navigating the world that can shed off those valuable seconds!
  • Fully customizable controls so you can play how best suits you.
  • 3 Achievements!

--------------------

There is so much we wanted to do with Gizmo. We love the old platformers from the 90s and felt there weren't many new ones that captured the same feeling. We didn't want an open world, we wanted designed, structured levels with clear progression.

It turns out it's too much work for us to do on our own, but rather than wasting the project away we decided to clean up what he had and put it on Steam! We believe this is only a slice of a larger game.

We want a full platforming game! 25+ levels, different themes set all around the world exploring Dr Bolt's bizarre version of Earth.

When developing this concept level, we dreamt up the larger picture first to give the game more depth and direction. This example level stands alone, but presents a lot of the ideas about the characters and setting that belong in a larger game.

Anyone that's familiar with Milo-Games will know that we also want boss fights.

Gizmo reviews and comments

It'S A short shorty game, a demo come on, but it makes you remember the old platform games with a smile. Advisable to try it as it is free and enjoy the time it lasts.

The game Has only one level and it is the only minus. For 1.5 hours I have accomplished all the achievements and enjoyed the Speedranersky gameplay, the game weighs a little, it is worth trying everyone, even if the platformers is not yours.

Great little game for free. It looks like a demo, if a full version comes out, it will be a real pleasure! We have fun QQ minutes with a small robot very keen, the decorations are very nice and the challenge of the secret room adds a very fun speedrun side. I recommend of course!

That's a demo, a one-level demo. But I'm literally very delighted with the demo. Mega recommended for those who like the classic platform. It is very well polished and easy to play, the most remarkable thing is to get the 3 complete objectives. I Didn't get it yet, but I'm so glad I played this game.

Free and not particularly long, so actually a no brainer. Don't Talk about trying it out. All in all, it has succeeded well. Only the pinpoint Jumps, some of which are required, I perceive as a design error. Here is my Video for the Achievement "Total Meltdown." Oh, my "Total Shutdown," I had the Meltdown at the first Attempt. ^^ https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YgwfKWQig7s&t=3s

This cute little 3D Platformer, is actually (according to the Developers) more of a tech demo. If you want to fill around 30 Minutes and like to have such Games, you should like the short Gaming Experience. If You don't like Platformer, don't have Frustration (Keyword: Last Section) or pay worth to a Story (non-existent), however, Gizmo is in The wrong Place and should invest half an Hour elsewhere. Verdict: Short Pleasure for Fans of Platformer runs

A Good platformer, a little bit Complicated-THAT one thing (lighthouse?) could not first find passed without a thing (beacon) then already with the 3-th time already probably found =) and it was still difficult to get into the room without Chekpointtov and for the time it took me the most Time (from the time I passed it). For a Long time I could not understand where it was necessary to jump from the 3rd platform, it is good that the beam orange noticed and thought to jump there, but I did not get it from the first time, but come on, the passage left 1 hour. So little time has gone and amused me
