Defunct is an indie adventure game with a focus on flow, speed and an engaging world. You are a broken robot that accidentally falls out of a giant cargo ship onto a post-human Earth, now inhabited by robots. You have to get back to your ship before it’s too late! You are equipped with a Gravitize engine. It is used to create a separate gravity around yourself; this is the main source of your speed. Use this in downhills to accelerate. But be careful, using it uphill will slow you down. In addition to this the world is full of different speed boosts such as Enerjuice, which you can pick up and use to go faster.

Review from Steam

Defunct is a fast-paced indie adventure platformer set in post-human Earth. Fun, bite-size experience with simple mechanics and satisfying gameplay. I recommend picking it up at a good discount due to its short length.
Pros:
- Cool art style;
- Enjoyable gameplay;
- Decent optimisation;
- Good controls;
- Time trial mode;
Cons:
- Mediocre soundtrack;
- Short campaign;

really goood would recommend

It's simply too short to buy at full price. For a dollar though? The way that the game handles the feeling of speed is probably worth the price of entry. Strictly not enjoyable to "100%". Play the game, play it a few times, pretend the air is flowing over your mechanical helmet.
