This game is super slept on! The impossible lair as a boss is very creative and the game makes excellent use of a hub world. DKC fans absolutely need to check this out.


It's a decent Donkey Kong Country inspired game, but is left dissapointing as a sequel to the first Yooka-Laylee game.


I never played the first game and I'm not sure if I ever will--but this one is legitimately good


This game is a bunch of pretty good ideas but badly executed. I got all 48 bees and I still felt overwhelmed by the impossible lair and I probably won't beat it, exactly what I did with the first Yooka-Laylee game. I really appreciate someone trying to do a Donkey Kong Country-like game, there aren't many out there. But this game unfortunately does some confusing things, I did not feel encouraged at all to use the whole Tonic system since you use quills to buy tonics, after you already found them in the overworld, but using good Tonics makes you get less quills, what is the sense in this? I can't really explain how I feel about the controls, it's not bad but it's not great either, maybe the lack of a run button made me feel this way. The actually good stages come very late into the game and many players won't ever play them, the same with overworld puzzles. Those first couple of stages aren't impressive, but overworld exploration is nice. In the end I just preferred Kaze and Wild Masks as a DKC-like game, the level design is much better. I hope Playtonic gets to do a better thing with a inevitable third game in the Yooka-Laylee series, let's wait and see.
Edit: David Wise's soundtrack is awesome.


This IP is better as a Donkey Kong rip off than a Banjo Kazooie rip off. Nothing much to say here. It's a solid 2D platformer.
