Amiga Power
An excellent - you could even say stunning - coin-op conversion, though the lack of size and depth (it doesn't have as much to it as, say, Rainbow Islands) keeps it from the top rung. We have seen worrying inconsistencies between versions too - some boxed copies have been so bugged as to be unplayable, while others seem fine.

ASM (Aktueller Software Markt)
Bei Toki hat der Käufer das Glück, ein aufwendig designtes, mit vielen Ideen angefülltes Spiel in die Hand zu bekommen, wie es in seiner Komplexität und Perfektion nur die großen Ableitungen japanischer Software-Firmen produzieren, die sich diesen Aufwand leisten können. Und nicht nur das: Die exzellente Programmierung der französischen Ocean-Abteilung (!) hat den ganz speziellen Reiz dieses so typischen Actionspiels erhalten und bringt den Spieler damit in den unverfälschten Genuß eines der genialsten Spiele der letzten zwei Jahre!

Amiga Action
Toki has been at the arcade for quite a while now, and I'm surprised it has taken this long to find its way onto the Amiga. But it's here now and what a game it is. On first impressions it is almost identical to the arcade version, with the graphics and sound being almost perfect. As for the gameplay, well, as anyone who has played the arcade version will know it is totally great and grabs hold of you from the first seconds of play. Ocean have done themselves proud and hopefully all of their future products will keep up this standard. A first class product if ever we saw one.

What's there is brilliant, if only there was more of it.

Computer and Video Games (CVG)
Toki was a fun coin-op to play, but suffered from a severe difficulty problem - the whole thing was dead tough, and overly frustrating to say the least. The Amiga conversion is stunning in it's audio-visual aspects, but unfortunately suffers from a similar problem. The graphics are little short of coin-op perfect, and the jolly, boppy jungle-style track is a treat to the ears. But after about half an hour of play, you just want to sling the joystick through the nearest window! All credit to Ocean France for a spot-on conversion, It's simply that the arcade original is too frustrating to be entertaining for any great length of time. More experienced arcadesters may well enjoy Toki, but your average joystick jockey will be pulling their hair out by the roots before long.

ACE (Advanced Computer Entertainment)
As coin-op conversions go, Toki is one of the better ones. The graphics are identical to those of the coin-op, as is the sound, but the gameplay seems a little harder than I seem to remember. In fact, it is the overt difficulty that marrs Toki's playability. The lack of variation between levels is admittedly kept to minimum, but the lack of progress can be very frustrating and even off-putting. Still, Toki is a fine conversion and while it's hardly award-winning stuff, fans of the coin-op should go ape over it.

Amiga Joker
Fassen wir zusammen: Es ist Ocean zwar gelungen, das Wunder von „Pang“ zu wiederholen und ein Amigagame zu fabrizieren, das sich von der Coin Op Vorlage (fast) nur insofern unterscheidet, als man hier kein Kleingeld einzuwerfen braucht, aber für einen Hit hätten die Jungs noch ein bißchen am Spieldesign feilen müssen. Für eine Extraportion affenscharfe Action reicht‘s allerdings auch so dicke!

Après l'excellent Ghosts'n Goblins, le genre des run and gun se pare d'un nouveau membre qui fait honneur à ce type de jeux de plates-formes atypique. Avec son héros plutôt original et loufoque, Toki parvient sans mal à nous offrir un soft où nos réflexes sont mis à rude épreuve, et où la progression par l'échec sera le lot de chaque joueur tentant l'aventure de notre cher primate. Malgré des niveaux assez courts, la difficulté du soft parviendra sans mal à vous tenir en haleine quelques heures durant tandis que les musiques particulièrement inspirées et les décors fourmillant de détails et de vie vous feront oublier votre dur labeur.

Power Play
Unverhofft kommt oft: Sechs ausgedehnte Levels voll abwechslungsreicher Jump'n'Run-Kost verlocken immer wieder zu einem Spielchen. Der Bildschirmausschnitt ist zwar etwas klein geraten, dafür stimmt der Rest. Das Scrolling ist in Ordnung, und grafisch sticht Toki die Konkurrenz locker aus. Der Spielablauf ist erfrischend witzig wie ausgefeilt. Allein die heikle Kollisionsabfrage sorgt in Kombination mit dem harschen Schwierigkeitsgrad anfangs für das eine oder andere Frusterlebnis. Fans des Spielautomaten werden jubilieren, alle anderen Geschicklichkeits-Freaks sollten angesichts dieser rundum geglückten Umsetzung schon mal 80 Mark lockermachen.
