Yooka-Laylee and the Impossible Lair - 2D Platforming Gameplay | PAX West 2019
Oct 23, 2019Even with plenty of superb 2D platformers releasing in recent years, Yooka-Laylee and the Impossible Lair easily belongs alongside the best the generation has to offer thanks to excellent level design and platforming that is evocative of past classics from the genre.
Oct 3, 2019Yooka-Laylee and the Impossible Lair is, at its worst, an enjoyable 2D platformer. Some of the level design is a tiny bit pedestrian, but the dynamic duo have a versatile moveset that helps make rolling around levels fun. Where this game shines is in the sum of its parts. The individual levels might not be outstanding, but combining those with alternate versions and a light and engrossing overworld make the whole package that is Playtonic’s second game a thrilling one. They might not have regained the crown from Retro Studios in the realm of Donkey Kong Country-like games, but they certainly retained the googly eyes.
Oct 11, 2019Yooka-Laylee finally succeeds in bringing the platformer to the next level. With an original structure, made of puzzle and reverse narration, this new episode brings a fresh OST and some great ideas, while being sometimes too difficult or unprecise. A really good game for nostalgics and newcommers.
Oct 8, 2019Yooka-Laylee and the Impossible Lair is a great homage to the Donkey Kong Country series, mixing its 2D mechanics with a 3D worl map to explore. The last level is always accessible to try out, but the collectibles you will find along your journey gives the game a tiny feels of an RPG. With so many secrets to fond across both the levels and the environment, there are plenty interesting things to look out in PlayTonic's second game.
Oct 6, 2019Having to backtrack through stages to eventually reach and tackle the Impossible Lair would be more tolerable if the final encounter wasn't such a steep difficulty spike, but in truth it's likely you'll tire of its routine platforming well before that disappointment sets in. The Impossible Lair is definitely a better attempt at capturing the magic of platformers than Yooka-Laylee's first crack at it, but it's still not remarkable. If you're itching to return to a bygone era, then The Impossible Lair might scratch it. Just don't expect much beyond that.

Dec 21, 2019I’m having so much fun with this game. I did not expect it to be this good. The platforming levels are like top-tier Donkey Kong CountryI’m having so much fun with this game. I did not expect it to be this good. The platforming levels are like top-tier Donkey Kong Country levels. The overworld is kinda like 2D Zelda - providing some really welcome breaks between the intense platforming levels, while still being intellectually stimulating and enjoyable. It a mix which, for me, puts the game above Donkey Kong Country. The game is honestly beautiful on Switch. Certainly one of the best looking switch games and it runs at a solid 60fps, which only makes the super-tight controls even better. And the music! So so good!
I waited for a sale to buy this one and I really didn’t need to. The game is certainly worth the full price.… Expand

Nov 4, 2019Wow! This game gets really close to be a real DKC (Snes style) successor. I definitely recommend this one! The exploration of the overworld isWow! This game gets really close to be a real DKC (Snes style) successor. I definitely recommend this one! The exploration of the overworld is awesome and it have some good levels too.
I wish only to suggest a few things for the next one:
1 - Make two playable characters like in real DKC (Diddy and Dixie) (For the next one I suggest some cliche like Laylee was kidnapped and Yooka and his cousin will search for her)
2 - Implement an way to exit the level that you already have finished without losing the Trowzer coins
3 - Design the level to have only one checkpoint (several checkpoints like Rayman origins style is getting boring)
4 - Instead of 5 generic Trowzer coins in each level, put only two Trowzer coins per level with bonus level challenge to acquire each one (DKC style again)
5 - Include some boss levels in the overworld (the player have to beat the boss to gain access to new area, no more paywalls)
6 - Include a secret world where you have spend the Trowzer coins to play new levels (paywalls only in the secret world)
7 - Put a single special coin in each level (like a DKC coin in DKC2 and DKC3). Make it an extra... maybe an 4th slot reward only.
Follow those steps and your game will be the GOTY… Expand
Oct 9, 2019I love the first game, seriously! But this is one of the worst games i have ever played:
-First of all, the story. The story is bad, sinceI love the first game, seriously! But this is one of the worst games i have ever played:
-First of all, the story. The story is bad, since a lot of boring new characters appear and the humor that characterized the first installment doesnt appear at all.
-The graphics are pretty nice but the 30 FPS are not tolerable.
-The gameplay is generic so dont expect too much.
-Dlc and general gameplay. Is broken! And the DLC add more frustration!
Dont buy this game! :P… Expand
