Yooka-Laylee is an all-new open-world platformer from key

creative talent behind the Banjo-Kazooie and Donkey Kong Country games.

Reformed as Playtonic Games, the team is building a spiritual successor

to its most cherished work from the past!

Playtonic’s new heroes, Yooka (the green one) and Laylee (the

wisecracking bat with big nose) were conceptualised from the ground up

for stellar platforming gameplay, created by the same character artist

behind the rebooted Donkey Kong family and legendary N64 heroes Banjo

and Kazooie.

Using an arsenal of special moves like Yooka’s tongue grapple and

Laylee’s tactical sonar shot, the buddy duo will explore vast and

beautiful game worlds in their effort to thwart corporate creep Capital B

and his devious scheme to absorb all of the world’s books… and convert

them into pure profit.

Players will solve a huge variety of puzzles and platforming

challenges in search of Pagies, the golden bounty used to unlock - and

expand - new playgrounds, each jammed to the gills with oddball

characters and hulking bosses, many of whom communicate via a collage of

burp and fart noises.

Yooka-Laylee was funded on Kickstarter in June 2015, raising an

incredible £2.1 million from more than 80,000 backers. Yooka-Laylee was

fully funded in 40 minutes and reached £1,000,000 in less than 24 hours.

Yooka-Laylee remains the most funded UK games Kickstarter ever and the

second most successful UK Kickstarter campaign outright.

Its a good price but how well does it play? Ive seen mixed reviews.
Terrible game... Frame rate is gash. Should be free.
Agreed. Bought for my son to play but he didn't like it and said it was too hard. Tried it and found it to be extremely frustrating and just not much fun. Traded it in for £10.
Loved it but then I'm a big fan of Banjo Kazooie, well loved it until my son took his PS4 back off me.

Yes it is hard, the worlds are massive and some of the puzzles difficult. I had to Google some on how to do them. I just about got everything from the first level after many hours of play but nowhere near completed this. Will have to beg him to lend me it again

Well worth £9.99.
