Re: Yooka-Laylee Collector’s Boxie

Still no more news about this, unfortunately. If anyone here pre-odered this and paid with Paypal, you still have a bit of time to lodge a Paypal dispute to get your money back. I did that a few weeks ago and Paypal ruled in my favour (not surprising, when the seller didn't reply at all) so I got my...

Re: Yooka-Laylee on Switch - first impressions (by first-timers!)

Also I keep coming across the name "Penny" in the game (graffiti on the rafters of Yooka-Laylee's ship, the green letters in Hivory Towers spelling it out, the high score name in Rextro's arcade machines), so I wonder if this has some significance to the story that I'll find out later, or...

Re: Yooka-Laylee on Switch - first impressions (by first-timers!)

If you like the music of Moodymaze Marsh, just WAIT for world 5. That music blew me away. You were so right, the music in this world is amazing! :D The main theme is great on its own, but then I love the pirate variation when you go sailing around. And the music for both Rextro's arcade game, and t...

Re: Secret Pirate Treasure (possible spoilers)

I found the 3rd world one first, then the 4th world one, and so figured there was one in each world and went searching for them all. I thought they might have had something to do with the Toybox secret so I was disappointed to go back to secret I.N.E.P.T. just to have the character tell me "Sti...

Delightful Details

Since so much work goes into all the aspects of creating a game, I thought I'd start a topic where we can marvel at any small details found in the game that you thought were amusing and deserve to be pointed out so that other fans of the game who might have missed them can appreciate them too, and t...

Re: Lessons Playtonic might learn from Yooka-Laylee...

Could I add one that's more specific to the game? Please tone down the "Press button, start time limit, go through hoops" challenges. They are fun occasionally , but I thought everyone learned from Superman 64 that there is such a thing as too many hoops. World 4, and especially 5, were gr...

Re: Yooka-Laylee on Switch - first impressions (by first-timers!)

You know, there was a lot for me to hate in world 4. Especially when I had one last blasted token left. I strongly encourage you guys to use the Hunter tonic on World 4 if you're in a similar boat! I really enjoyed most of Capital Cashino (except that blasted Hurdle Hijinx - still haven't even pass...

Re: Lessons Playtonic might learn from Yooka-Laylee...

Covered in your point 1 about more testing, but more specifically I think in future they should set up some focus groups made up of gamers (in Yooka-Laylee's case I'm sure there would have been backers who would have gladly participated for free) to test game aspects like the Rextro mini games to se...

Re: Yooka-Laylee on Switch - first impressions (by first-timers!)

The Hurdle one specifically was the WORST one before. There was a glitch where if you tried to move over more than one row too quickly, it would "reset" the cooldown for moving over, preventing you from moving for up to one second. Try to move over AGAIN during that 1 second cooldown, and...

Re: Yooka-Laylee on Switch - first impressions (by first-timers!)

I agree whole-heartedly about getting both pagies at once. It's just tedious, otherwise. And also, for you guys that never played the original Rextro games... be grateful. Be VERY grateful. I hate that dinosaur with a passion that cannot be ended... Oh gosh, they used to be WORSE!?! I'm up to the s...

Re: Bugs & Glitches - Switch Edition

I played Yooka-Laylee for the first time today! :D I don't know if this is a glitch or if something just went wrong with my Switch (overheated?) but when I was in Tribalstack Tropics battling the minions to rescue the explorer skeleton lady, a black screen with an error message appeared saying some...

Re: Yooka-Laylee on Switch - first impressions (by first-timers!)

I'm really enjoying the game, don't really have any complaints except for one small thing that would make fighting the bosses less tedious if you die - it would have been nice if you were given the option to skip the dialogue scene before the boss if you've already gone through it once, so that whe...

If you like the music of Moodymaze Marsh, just WAIT for world 5. That music blew me away. Oh good, I look forward to it! :) Out of curiosity, how is everyone playing the game in terms of expanding vs. moving ahead? My current playthrough I'm doing each world, and then only expanding after I've hit ...

Re: Bugs & Glitches - Switch Edition

Updated! I've decided to start putting the newer bugs up at the top of the list so that there is some kind of order going on... it was seriously just haphazard before. I may go back and add the date the bug was added to the list next to each one moving forward as well. Thanks for all your work keep...

I'm still slowly playing my way through the game for the first time. I got to Moodymaze Marsh today and I love the music in that level! I love the Tribalstack Tropics music too but because we heard it so much during the Kickstarter campaign it wasn't a surprise when I actually played the game the wa...
