The music is comprised almost entirely of annoying earworms that will play over and over on a loop in your brain forever. And the gobbledegook character voices will either annoy or delight, depending on your level of tolerance for it.
Smile-inducing, beautiful levels, albeit ones that do adhere to classic video game tropes. Yes, there's a desert. Yes. There's a forest. And yes, there is an ice level. Still, you'd have to be a withered, empty husk of a person not to love this.
If we're being picky, then Yooka can be a little fiddly at times and certain levels are more frustrating than others. Overall, though, this is a charming 2.5D platformer with a puzzle-filled hub that serves as an elaborate level in itself.
Hours and hours of jumping, rolling and tail-whipping to be had, as you strive to collect all 48 bees in Queen Phoebee's Beettalion. Impossible Lair is a very polished game too, its alternate level states also adding to the game's longevity.
Not exactly the most creative of lists, the majority of tasks involve collecting all of the Beettalion, all of the coins, purchasing all of the Tonics (which will cost you thousands upon thousands of quills), and find every secret. Dig in for the long haul, then.
