Yoku's Island Express is a quirky open world pinball platforming game coming to Nintendo Switch this year
I've always loved when different genres collide and even more so when they aren't destined to or feel natural at first. The concept of a pinball platforming game for example, was always such a curious case of game design almost gone wrong but surprisingly, it works really well.
Yoku's Island Express, a pinball platformer for Switch, reminds me of Momonga Pinball Adventures on iOS and Android. Using a cartoonish look, it surprised and delighted me with some clever mechanics.
We even gave it our coveted Gold Award. Sadly, due to the nature of iOS gaming, you can no longer get the game on Apple's platform and that's such a shame.
Yoku's Island Express takes the concept even further by being open world. You roam the island using your newly found skills to unlock new areas while bouncing around the scenery. It looks gorgeous too:
Look out for it this year on Switch.
