Yooka-Laylee 

 

I am grateful Family Friendly Gaming was offered a digital download code for Yooka-Laylee on the Xbox One. This video game is in the style of Banjo-Kazooie. We have a small bat that is on the back of a larger lizard. The level design, concepts, and even the sounds remind me of Banjo-Kazooie. This should come as no surprise since many of the people that worked on Yooka-Laylee also worked on Banjo-Kazooie.

It is neat to see old styles of games come back into fashion. Yooka-Laylee looks better than a Nintendo 64 video game. There are some long loading times though. Yooka-Laylee also contains violence, skeletons, ghosts, ghouls, and more. The sounds made while text is scrolling on the screen is such a throw back to the Nintendo 64 video game. I hoped for some voice acting personally.

Books are the main theme in Yooka-Laylee. The bad guys steals everyone's books to find one book. We collect Pagies, and quills while we play Yooka-Laylee. Pagies unlock new worlds, and quills are used to purchase upgrades for the characters in Yooka-Laylee. These upgrades are generally some new skill that unlocks parts of the levels previously inaccessible.

The game play areas are very large and impressive in Yooka-Laylee. I liked going around and finding all of the different things to do. It can take some time to beat each of the worlds in Yooka-Laylee. The modes in Yooka-Laylee are Main Adventure, Rextro's Arcade, Solo, and 2P. Coins that are found in the levels can be used to play at the Arcade. Yooka-Laylee has a retail version for the millions of gamers in the physical copy movement.

If you have wanted a new game like Banjo-Kazooie then you will get into Yooka-Laylee. Expect some difficulty though. It took me time to figure out how to do certain things. I learned to be careful with my special skills in Yooka-Laylee since they can be drained quickly. I also learned to get new skills and come back to certain worlds later. Yooka-Laylee is modern retro with mild violence, and other issues. Overall I enjoyed my time with this game.
