Tinykin is a puzzle game where you play Milo. You have landed on Earth in 1991 but are tiny. To survive you catch hundreds of mysterious Tinykin who can use their powers to create ladders, bridges and explosions to help you find a way home.

Play is like the Pikmin games. You need to collect enough of the right kind of toy helper creatures to move obstacles and solve puzzles in your path. As you do you explore cities of ants, beetles and other insects built inside a giant house. You find a skateboard to get around quicker and can jump, grind and even hover around the house.

The world is full of characters to meet. Each one you speak to tells you their story as you piece together what has happened to the world. As you go you collect upgrades to improve Milo's bubble-pack, build out the Ardwin Museum and complete Ridmi's mysterious machine.

Rated PEGI 7 for Mild Violence.

Skill Rating

8+ year-olds usually have the required skill to enjoy this game. Players need a combination of timed running and jumping skill as well as puzzle solving for how to use the creatures they collect. This makes it skew older than games like Pikmin. That said, it can be a good first step into a 3D platform game because of the help from your creature-friends.


Tinykin usually costs £19.99 to £21.59. 


There are no additional in-game purchases, loot boxes, adverts or subscription costs.
