Skinny is a beautiful platform adventure game based in a future where strange thoughtful robots inhabit the earth. You will be given a series a missions to accomplish using your special robot abilities including a grappling hook and wall climbing legs. The story line is slightly surrealistic and the problems the characters are encountering are specific to the reality of their existence.
One of the main objectives of the game is collecting batteries for the energy depleted robots who are trapped in various locations. Navigating the landscape requires hitting switches to open gates. Secrets located in special locked areas can be accessed by finding the keys. There are globes located throughout the game which save your progress when broken.
Most of the switches are on a timer which means you must figure out what they do and quickly access that part of the game before the switch returns to its original state. The artwork and animation is unique and fluid. The backgrounds are interactive and vibrant. Added touches and special effects such as electrical arcs and fluttering birds are nicely done.
