Rustyard is a puzzle-assisting game released April 2, 2009. The gameplay is quite similar to Onekey, as the goal is to help a robot to reach the finish by manipulating the objects around him rather than having direct control over a particular character.


Controls

PC Mouse Left Click Mouse - Used to interact with various objects in the environment.
Up Down Left Right Arrow Keys - Used to move the game area.

Levels

Rustyard has twenty-eight levels. The goal of each level is to have the robot reach the finish safely without losing all of his lives. Depending on the level, the player has to use their mouse to move certain objects or clear obstacles so that there would be clear path for the robot to take.

Level 1

The first level introduces basic mechanics to the game, such as controlling conveyor belts and moving platforms and blocks with the mouse. The player also learns in this level that the robot can move up the stairs in order to reach the end.

Enemies

  • Walking robots - The first sort of Robots the player can encounter in game. In order to activate them, the player need to insert a coin into the walking robot.
  • Handle robots - Those robots are special robots. The player can pick them up and place them elsewhere. The area where the player can drag this robot to can be restrained by electric fields.

Hazards

  • Lasers - Lasers can kill the robot instantly. The player has to turn them around so the robot won't be hit by a laser.
  • Crushing machines - Those machines will crush everything that is dropped on them. Once you drop a robot onto it, the machine will produce a block. Pay attention, this also affects the protagonist..

Interactive objects

The player can interact with certain objects that can help move the robot in the right direction to the finish.

  • Fuse - Introduced throughout all levels, the player can have the robot pick this up and earn bonus points.

Trivia

  • The game has many similarities to the movie WALL-E; which was a movie produced by Disney and Pixar.
    • The world around the robot is composed of heaps junk and garbage.
    • The robot is trying to get to a power house, which is similar to WALL-E heading back to his broken-down truck.
    • The handle bots look similar to M-O (Microbe-Obliterator).
    • The crushing machines have similar jobs as the machines that push garbage out into space on the Axiom, known as WALL-A (Waste Allocation Load Lifter - Axiom class) robots.
Spoiler
Also, in the end of the game, the robot's girlfriend has a similar purpose to Eve.
  • The "face" of the robot character in the game is an electric plug.
  • On February 23, 2010, Heather Stancliffe announced that Rustyard was nominated in Mochi Games for the Flash Gaming Summit 2010.
  • The concept, that the player that can't control the character, but the objects around the character, is similar to the concept of Sandman, Scribble, and Onekey.
  • The game's music sounds like a ballad or a sad song.
