Digital Deluxe Edition

Yooka-Laylee Digital Deluxe is the ultimate platforming package, including an exclusive digital manual and art book, plus the game’s incredible soundtrack!DIGITAL MANUAL & ART BOOK
Yooka-Laylee’s 24-page digital manual and art book features exclusive details on the characters, worlds and challenges set to feature in the highly-anticipated platformer revival! Oh, and there are a few excellent puns in there too, if you’re interested.

The digital artbook includes never-before-seen concept art and in-development images offering an insight into the creation of the game. Marvel at the post-it note origins of serpent salesman Trowzer! Say ‘wow’ as you discover that Dr. Quack used to ride a tank! A must-have for fans.SOUNDTRACK
Yooka-Laylee’s mouth-watering (ear-leaking?) soundtrack combines three of gaming’s greatest composers, the legendary David Wise (Donkey Kong Country, Diddy Kong Racing), equally esteemed Banjo-Kazooie composer Grant Kirkhope (Viva Piñata, GoldenEye 007) and the award-winning Steve Burke (Kameo: Elements of Power). This is one musical performance you definitely don’t want to miss!

Explore huge, beautiful worlds, meet (and beat) an unforgettable cast of characters and horde a vault-load of shiny collectibles as buddy-duo Yooka (the green one) and Laylee (the wisecracking bat with the big nose) embark on an epic adventure to thwart corporate creep Capital B and his devious scheme to absorb all the world’s books… and convert them into pure profit!

Using their arsenal of special moves, our heroes will tackle a huge variety of puzzles and platforming challenges in their search for Pagies, the golden bounty used to unlock — and expand — stunning new worlds, each jammed to the gills with oddball characters, hulking bosses, minecart challenges, arcade games, quiz shows, multiplayer games… and much more!KEY FEATURES:

Yooka Laylee is a Spirit preserved Successor of Banjo Kazooie (Year 2000) There is a lot of Love and Detail inside with 5 Worlds that you can expand and collectible barem such as: Pagies (Sides) or Quills you are a boredom busy Yooka Laylee offers even A wonderful Soundtrack by Grant Kirkhope, David Wise and Steve Burke. All in all A Good Game Since I Can Only Insulate

A really wonderful Loving game:-) If you are not only into Murder and Manslaughter, but also like to play Jump and run and collecting Games and Do so with beautiful Music, this is just right here. The Voices here are for extra in a squeaky language. But that doesn't detract from the Game. If you know Games like Banjo Kazooie (N64), Mario World 64 or Spyro, then you will love this Game:-) Always like;-)

The Game is really top who was Fan of the old Collecting jump n runs Will love the Game here it plays out just like back then in beautiful Graphics and the same humor of the Developers. It's just Fun to explore the individual Worlds all completely. Also the Music is absolutely Top in the Game and worth it all times I can warmly Recommend this Game for Fans of the old Banjo Games but also Beginners have their Fun while exploring the Worlds. Clear Buy recommendation.

In itself, it's a very nice Game and also lurks me to my Childhood with Banjo-Kazooie. Unfortunately, the Control is just cruel, especially when Flying, and the Difficulty of the individual Levels is very different. Some Parts of the Worlds are totally simple, others take the full Fun of the game Within a few Minutes. It destroys the Desire for a 100%ous Drum game. Unfortunately, that's why I have to give the Game a Thumbs down. But If you don't have a Problem with poor Control and a high Level of Frustration Tolerance, I can recommend it.

After finding the Game yesterday by Chance here at Steam, I thought to myself, "I have to have that!" And that's Usually rare with me. An old Jump and Run Fan of the Nineties awaits but here a Game with lovingly designed graphics, With funny Characters, some neat challenges and a Soundtrack that just gets under your Skin. There is a Lot to explore and discover and I myself am still quite at the Beginning. Another really successful Thing is that this Game is not a Case linear. So, on balance from me, a clear Purchase recommendation.
How excited I was when I learned about this game, how disappointed I was when it was released.

5/10. Go buy A Hat In Time instead.
