Scott Clark and I, do a review for Yoku's Island Express.

About Yoku’s Island Express:

Yoku’s Island Express is the debut game from Stockholm based, independent developer Villa Gorilla, which is comprised of just 3 people and headed up by veterans Jens Andersson (Starbreeze, LucasArts, Collecting Smiles) and Mattias Snygg (Starbreeze). Both have a solid AAA pedigree, and have previously worked on The Darkness, Chronicles of Riddick, Syndicate and Colors! 3D.

Yoku the dung beetle has arrived on Mokumana Island to take over the role of postmaster and he’s ready for the easy life, soaking up the sun and delivering parcels on a tropical paradise!

However, an ancient island deity is trapped in a restless sleep - and it’s all down to Yoku to traverse the island using a unique blend of pinball mechanics, platforming and open world exploration, in an amazing adventure to help those in need!

Flip and bump our pint-sized protagonist around the stunning hand-painted island on your quest to rebuild the post-office and wake an old god from its slumber.

Yoku’s Island Express is out now on Xbox One, PlayStation 4, Nintendo Switch™ and PC for just £15.99 / 19,99 € / $19.99.
