The rebels established Playtonic GamesAttracted through Kickstarter in excess of $ 3 million and quiet for two years did what, what were the masters, – 3D-platformer about a hilarious couple of small animals, stuffed with Hochma on the gaming industry. The design of the characters and locations – a special “British.”
It can not be confused with one of the current projects, sources of inspiration – daredevils with the N64: Banjo-Kazooie (1998) and Banjo-Tooie (2000).
In the story Yooka-Layleethe main villain Capital B begat simple business plan – to steal all the literature of the world and remain the only player on the market.
In the hands of the Rogues and got some magic book that belonged loafers Yuke (European Green Lizard) and Layla (purple bat).
But it and the magic that page and take a running start – vanish into thin air! Cartoon tandem does not intend to turn a blind eye to the blatant theft – using dapper businessman Trauzera, sells techniques and contraband pants, they penetrate the plant Capital B, spiked with portals to go in five fantastic worlds.
Purely in mood and environment of locations vary widely: sunny jungles, pirate port, gloomy swamp … But the gameplay from level to level is unchanged – jumping on platforms, fights to die from one-two punch minions, ingenuous puzzles and various tests on time and wit, the reward for serving Pagies. Page – the keys to new worlds and expand old ones.
To avoid falling into the clutches of boredom, I advise you to alternate locations with a jog along the “hub” – the good game condescendingly refers to the free passage. The main thing is to buy up at Trauzera tricks, or to experiment with what will not.
Over time, Yuka possess a couple of cunning techniques – be able to absorb the properties of objects (language touched cannonball – freely walked past a powerful air flow) and miss with the stalks of fire, ice and other natural berries, for a short period to turn a mediocre reptile dragon.
Do not lag behind and Layla – its sonar is useful in the puzzles, and the ability to fly, dragging his friend, greatly expand the horizons of the game. Variability pleases, although it is clear that most of the time Yuka – brute force, ramming tail enemies and just that banging the ground, Layla prefers to dismiss the language in conversations with NPC.Rare Rare .
In Yooka-Laylee extremely convenient layout – many movements and stunts, but they are memorized quickly.
With the Xbox 360 controller, on subjective sensations, play more pleasant than with the DualShock 4. sharp criticism from the media has undergone camera work: someone does not wait for the patch of the first day, someone,
I suspect not very good friends with acrobatic arcades – after all the twenty years have passed since the release of Super Mario 64 and Banjo-Kazooie . As for me – the camera control and abuse from scratch.
Cavils were also subjected to a simple “bosses” (well, come on! Because platformer before us), sound monosyllabic sounds heroes (what do you expect from the successor to Banjo-Kazooie?)
And no maps. The latter – from the category of complaints of PaRappa the Rapper Remastered , moved on PS4 without gameplay revisions, and perceived by modern players are too hardcore.
But, as befits an ambitious project from modest studio, Yooka-Laylee is not without drawbacks. In the winter kingdom offers spread brick by brick needle – then that you fully appreciate how awkward physics destructible objects in the environment.
A phrase that circle Capital B repeats in his den? First they laugh, but the farther away – the more annoying. The mini-games in the arcades and rides on the trolley to be called too successful – they quickly lose interest.
