In this adaptation of the movie of the same name, you take the role of robot Number 5. Having recently become self-aware, Number 5 has to escape from the laboratory. To do so, he has to find several hardware and software upgrades that give him new abilities, like jumping and firing a laser gun. He also has to evade capture by security personnel and other robots. Once he has escaped from the lab, he has to survive on the outside by evading wild animals and his human and robot pursuers.

The game combines action and adventure elements. In the lab, you can search for and pick up items and use them to find your way to the exit. Once outside, you have to jump and shoot to survive.
