Tropes that appear in this Video Game:
- Almighty Janitor: Jack Plummer starts out as a mere janitor of The Corporation. He becomes the first experiment of the "New Breed", becoming so much more.
- Mega Corp.: Known as The Corporation. It has taken over every facet of life.
- Ms. Fanservice: Jack Plummer meets Juana, a member of the Resistance, who is not shy about showing off a lot of skin.
- Obviously Evil: The Corporation has a logo resembling a big, evil-looking winged skull. It also has posters saying "Power And Control," as well as "The Corporation Is The Sun Of Your New Life!" plastered all over the place.
- Opera Gloves: Juana, a member of the Resistance, wears these.
- La Résistance: Jack Plummer eventually joins up with a group opposing The Corporation. This group is called the Resistance.
- Propaganda Machine: The Corporation makes use of this. You'll see more than one poster saying "Power And Control," as well as "The Corporation Is The Sun Of Your New Life!"
- Rebel Leader: The Resistance has one, and his name is Marcus.
- Sequel Hook: Jack goes after the magnate guy, and on the final level, in the very end, we see a car fly away. The ending cutscene shows Jack just standing there, and then Marcus, the resistance leader, comes with his car, says it's over Jack, let's go, they go away, and then the staff roll goes by. However, a sequel has never been made.
- You No Take Candle: There is quite a bit of broken English in this game. The company FUN Labs is Romanian, so they might not have native English speakers on hand.
