Jack writes -"Lifeless Planet has very few game mechanics. Of course simple ones are walking and jumping that can be improved upon with the use of the jetpack. This can help navigate the environment and solve certain puzzles. Another would be the robotic arm you find later in the game that helps you reach certain controls that you usually wouldn’t be able to. This does, however make up the entirety of the game mechanics that may upset a considerable amount of people. Due to the nature of the game and its exploration the focus on the mechanics are minimal and whilst still important, the story is most important."
