Go To
Haydee is a Metroidvania Indie Game with Third-Person Shooter and Platformer elements, developed by Haydee Interactive and released September 26, 2016 on Steam for 15 dollars.

You control Haydee, a very scantily clad cyborg woman making her way through a series of progressively difficult and grueling challenges within an Elaborate Underground Base, trying to escape.

Haydee contains examples of the following tropes:

  • Ambiguously Brown: It's hard to tell if Haydee is just tan, or if her skintone is an ethnic thing.
  • The Blank: The robot-half of Haydee gives her a featureless face-mask helmet thing.
  • Boom, Headshot!: Mooks take twice as much damage from headshots. The Slasher bots are also staggered by them, a vital tactic to avoid damage.
  • Colour-Coded for Your Convenience: Each zone has a Color Motif that alludes to its theme. The White Rooms are the Video Game Tutorial, the Green Rooms are platforming-based, the Red Rooms have a lot of pipes, the Yellow Rooms are flooded with Deadly Gas, the Blue Rooms are underwater, and the Black Rooms are pitch black and swarmed with enemies.
  • Cyborg: Haydee is literally half-robot, half-human, with tight-fitting plastic plates completely armoring her upper-body and absolutely nothing below her waist.
  • Deadly Gas: The Yellow Rooms are flooded with this, so the player must have a gas-mask equipped to navigate in it.
  • Life Meter: Haydee's health bar is built into her, displayed on the back of her head in a similar style to Dead Space.
  • Male Gaze: The camera focuses on Haydee's assets at every opportunity.
  • Mecha-Mooks: All of the enemies are combat drones.
  • Mercy Rewarded: Killing less than 50 bots earns you the "Mercy" achievement.
  • Metroidvania: The game is mostly platforming, exploration, and trying to strengthen Haydee and her arsenal.
  • Mighty Glacier: The Walker enemies are slow, but their club hands pack a punch.
  • Minimalist Run: Sticking to the pistol throughout the entire game will get you the "Oldschool" achivement.
  • Ms. Fanservice: Haydee, of course; she's curvaceous almost to the point of parody and the game's camera milks it for all it's worth.
  • Multiple Endings: Based on the player's choices, the game can end in three different ways. They can either unsuccessfully escape in the "Escape" ending, go rogue and take control of the facility in the "Master" ending, or have the whole incident restart in the "Backup" ending.
  • No-Damage Run: Beating it without taking any damage will earn you the "God Mode" achievement.
  • One-Hit Kill: The Walker enemies can one-shot you if you happen to be playing on Hardcore without the body armor equipped. Similarly, walking directly into an armed mine is instant death regardless of health, armor or difficulty.
  • Pants-Free: Everything under Haydee's waist is completely exposed.
  • Save Token: The little red diskettes. Hardcore mode, in addition to its other restrictions, also reduces the number of resources you can find, which include said save diskettes.

How well does it match the trope?
