-->OHNO! LYLE'S KITTY HAS BEEN STOLENED\\
AND NOW HE MUST JOURNEY THROUGH THE\\
WONKED OUT LANDS OF THE CUBESECTOR TO\\
RETRIEVE HIS MEOWMEOW COMPANION!

''Lyle In Cube Sector'' is a freeware {{metroidvania}} made in 2006 that [[XMeetsY plays like a cross between]] ''VideoGame/SuperMetroid'' and [[SuperMarioBros Super Mario Bros. 2]]. You work with [[CrateExpectations cubes]]. With the right upgrades, you can throw them at enemies, [[DoubleJump use them to propel yourself higher]], and make them materialize in your hands. You must use these abilities skillfully in [[{{Magicant}} the cube sector]] to find your cat.

!!This work contains the following tropes:

* BossArenaIdiocy:
** Klobbur's arena's ceiling is made of blue cubes, one of which doesn't get destroyed when it lands, just so you can hit him with it.
** [[spoiler:Psychovyle]]'s arena's floor crumbles every time he uses his super ground pound.
* {{Breaking Out}}: The second boss.
* CheckpointStarvation: there aren't any. While there is a teleportation room next to the starting location, various areas and in particular the second and third boss are far, far away from any of these.
* {{Collision Damage}}: Wait for cubes to stop bouncing before you touch them.
** The latest version makes bouncing cubes harmless.
* DefeatEqualsExplosion: The bosses all go out in explosive ways. [[spoiler:Psychovyle's death explosion actually propels Lyle out of the pit the two fell in after the final boss fight]].
* {{Drought Level Of Doom}}: The gauntlet before the last boss, although it has gold cubes containing CP-restoring powerups scattered about and two gold cubes with HP and CP powerups at the very end. [[spoiler: If you enter the next room and immediately turn back, these will respawn]].
* {{Excuse Plot}}
* {{Grimy Water}}: Green toxic waste will kill you instantly, [[ConvectionSchmonvection as opposed to the red lava, which just does one point of damage]].
* {{Ground Pound}}: [[spoiler:Psychovyle]] uses these and does a particularly powerful one when you hit him.
* {{Impaled With Extreme Prejudice}}:
--> CAUTION: LARGE POINTY THING
* {{Improbable Weapon User}}
* {{Item Get}}: You get a brief description of what you can do with an item.
* [[InsurmountableWaistHeightFence Insurmountable Waist-Height Cube]]: Why can't Lyle climb over the blocks he would otherwise have to kick?
** Because his head is too big to fit through the gap.
* [[KickTheDog Kick The Cat]]
* NintendoHard
* {{Retraux}}
* SpikesOfDoom
* TacticalSuicideBoss: Most of the bosses tend to have an attack that winds up biting them.
** Klobbur would be invincible if he didn't ram the walls and drop a cube from the ceiling for you to kick/throw into him.
** Buggzy is the Breakout boss mentioned above and would also be unhittable if he didn't shoot a bounceable green shot.
** [[spoiler:Psychovyle]] smashes the floor with enough force to damage it with the super ground pound he does when you hit him with a cube after stunning him. Even more ridiculous, he runs directly into the electric beams that stun him.
* [[WidgetSeries Weird American Thing]]
* {{With This Herring}}
* {{Video Game Cruelty Punishment}}: Don't attack the cow or the baby bird any more than is necessary to get their respective powerups. They fight back.
