A shocking good time. Very addicting, yet very frustrating. If you die, you start from the beginning of the map. You can't go slow or the evil bot will kill you. You can't go fast or you will miss a jump and die. Either way, you're going to die eventually lol.

Hardcore platforming goodness right here. Mechanic Escape is fast-paced and fun. You control a little TV-lookig fellow who has to jump, fall, swing from "vines", shoot itself from cannons, and float on air curents, all while dodging tons of environmental hazads and giant robot nemeses my sons and I dubbed Factors. At the same time, you're trying to pick up as many of your little TV friends per level as possible. There are fifty small and five large TVs to collect in each level.

Almost every level requires a bit of trial and error, and memorization of all the little ins and outs and change-ups of the layout. Luckily, it rarely gets too frustrating because the levels are so short, with each taking around a minute to complete. So even if you die, you're usually only seconds away from getting back to where you were. The game starts out fairly easy, but the difficulty increases steadily. A nice feature is that normally if a level is too punishing (and there are some that have taken me dozens of tries) you can skip trying to collect all the TVs and just take the straight route through to make it easier on yourself.

On top of that, the game has a delightful art style, with crispy, bright graphics. This is a great game to take in short bursts of maybe 30 minutes or so at a time, because there's really no story, and you can just pop in and complete a few levels then shelf it for a few days before coming back. Highly recommended for anyone who enjoys a challenging platforming.

Nice physics, gameplay and music. If you have patience, you can complete all levels with gold stars.
Achievements are easy to unlock and will come as the game progresses.

In this semi-hardcore platformer you assume the role of Mech, a tv on a mission to save his friends and escape the ruthless machines. It's a very simple platformer with basic controls, you move around and jump. At first the controls felt a bit "floaty" but it only took a couple of minutes to get used to and after a few levels it felt really solid. You speedrun through the levels and collect tvs, it's a great and simple concept.

The levels are really well made and even if I missed some collectibles along the way it didn't really bother me. Since the game is so fast paced I didn't mind retrying a level a couple of times until I could collect everything.

The downside to this game is that it feels abandoned in a way. It times your run on each level but there's no use for it really. The lack of leaderboard is a dissapointment because it has the potential to offer some real good competition and replay value. The other thing are the achievements, they are just one big grind. I'm not surprised that the most rare achievement is "Die 1000 times" because you probably won't play the game again after you finish it. There's no reason to keep collecting all the tvs either after the third chapter because at that point you already got the achievement for the collectibles. But then again, not everyone is obsessed with achievements (Don't judge me!).

So if you enjoy platformers, you like to go fast and you're not too obsessed with the lack of achievements and leaderboards there's a good chance you will enjoy this game!

I got this game for free but I definitely would pay for it! Fun, challenging, nice scenarios and many levels! Buy it, it's totally worth it. Though leaderboards would be a nice add and some different achievements too (like getting all golden stars).

10/10

I got this game in a bundle, and I didn't expect to enjoy it so much!
A speedrun platform with ultra response controls, nice animations, nice music, challenge balanced and a lot of fun!

Mechanic Escape is a 2D platform that knows how to tantalize the player with a good level of difficulty. Also, the price is very competitive and the fun is guaranteed.

Nice casual platformer that focuses on trial and error. The controls are tight and the level design is very good. The difficulty curve feels just right and the achievements tied to the game are on the casual side.

The game gives you a solid 4-6 hours of content with 3 extra unlockable outfits as you progress through the game. I'd say $5 is a fair pricepoint seeing as several other platformers within that range can be completed in less time.

4/5

Pre-Release Review
I've played an hour of Mechanic Escape (video link below) and completed the first world (20 out of 80) levels and I can say this is a solid platforming game. The controls are tight, the graphics are wacky, some great level design in some places (some annoying designs in others) but overall this is a great platformer, especially for the price. The difficulty was ramping up nicely towards the end of the first world, supposedly the rest of the game gets pretty hard. If you enjoy platformers, this is worth every cent. You can watch my gameplay here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=M_w5aqVFwNw
