Review Yooka-Laylee And The Impossible Lair - A Delicious Mix Of Donkey Kong And Zelda
Lair today, Kong tomorrow
It’s possible to beat Yooka-Laylee and the Impossible Lair in under half an hour. Now, hold on a minute. Before you make a beeline for Amazon to start pricing pitchforks (it’s about £25 for a good one, if you’re asking), let us clarify. We said it’s possible. But there’s no way you’ll be able to manage it right...

Guide Best Feel-Good Nintendo Switch Games
I see a ship in the harbour
We've updated this list with a couple more feel-good games to help get you through any New Year blues. Enjoy! Blue Monday. No, not just a kick-ass New Order song, but the name coined by marketers for the third Monday in January (or the first, or the second — all January Mondays it seems!), which is purportedly the...
About The Game
Yooka & Laylee are back in a brand-new platform hybrid adventure!
They must run, jump and roll their way through a series of challenging 2D levels, face a puzzling Overworld and rally the Royal Bee-tallion to take down Capital B and his Impossible Lair!
- Each level offers beautiful, rich visuals with detail and depth. Yooka, Laylee and a whole host of colourful characters (good and bad) are realised in stunning 2.5D
- The overworld isn’t just a hub to hop from level to level, it provides a whole separate gaming experience! Explore and unlock more 2D levels by completing objectives and puzzles, rescue Royal Bees and find collectibles.
- Alternate Level States! Think you’ve got a level figured out? Try it in its alternate state! Flip switches in the overworld to create new landscapes.
- Bee-at the Impossible Lair! Players are free to tackle Capital B’s Impossible Lair at any time; however, they may find it too much of a challenge without the help of the Royal Bee Guards.
Yooka Laylee & The Impossible Lair is the 2D platforming game of the decade. The gameplay is indescribably tight, combining classic Donkey Kong Country gameplay with 2D Zelda world exploration and puzzle solving for a brilliant, unique experience that evokes classic Rare titles of the past while doing something completely new. Its platforming "feels" more like Donkey Kong Country than even the new entries in the DK series such as Tropical Freeze — it has that distinctly English humour and is brimming with that oh-so-particular "soul" the Donkey Kong series has been missing! Please keep 'em coming, Playtonic!
Surprised by how good it is! <3 Loved it
