It seems that Captial B's goons have been hard at work trying to tear this game down, so i figured I would embrace the love for this game and start a thread that lists all the good qualities. Feel free to join in. If you got gripes, grab up one of the threads pooping on it instead.

So onward to spoilers:


I think I'll start there but I love a lot more from it and I hope you do too. Feel free to add in the love.

Overall I think it's a really enjoyable game. In addition to your list, here are 3 more things that stood out to me as particularly enjoyable moments that made me actually laugh out loud. They all have to do with the pagies.



Also, the last 3 transformations. Those were really cool. :D

The Moodymaze Marsh and Capital Cashino bosses were really cool. Both felt much more platformer-y than most of the remaining game. Also, that one point in dialogue where Quack winks at Capital B and he gets it all wrong. That was pretty hilarious imo.

Haha. Good point, FF. I might have jumped the gun.

Good to see a positive thread for once. That "mixed" reviews on Steam is annoying, because I just know most of the points are going to be complete irrelevant, whiny nonsense.

FF, I loved the DK pirates. In Diddy's Kong Quest when they slide down the ropes was awesome.

Hopix, thanks for joining in! Did you play yet? If there's parts you loved, feel free to share!

I bet I will be boo-ed at...

But I really loved Yooka-Laylee's platforming and frankly, I regret there wasn't more areas like Gloomy Gem Grotto and the Hivory Towers slide that really tested my skills.

I actually would love the addition of a special world entirely around using abilities to their maximum potential or at least, the addition of more sections like these.

I really, really, REALLY hope the update will not nerf those areas...


Frankly, Yooka-Laylee is easy and forgiving as is. Not that I necessarely want it to be truly hard per see and I loved the exploration but well, I actually appreciated the presence of such areas greatly and it made me wish for more of them in this style.

I agree, Gloomy Gem Grotto was very difficult for me, but I appreciated the challenge. That section really felt reminiscent of some of the most challenging platforming sections in old N64 platformers.
