Official Description (Ad Blurb)

Yoku has arrived on Mokumana and he’s ready for the easy life, soaking up the sun and delivering parcels on a tropical paradise!

However, an ancient Island deity is trapped in a restless sleep - and it’s all down to Yoku to traverse the island using a unique blend of pinball mechanics, platforming and open world exploration, in an amazing adventure to help those in need!

Flip and bump our pint-sized protagonist around the stunning hand-painted island on your quest to rebuild the post-office, and wake an old god from its deep slumber.

Key Features:

OPEN-WORLD PINBALL ADVENTURE: Coupled with its unique pinball platforming play style, Yoku’s Island Express offers non-linear gameplay that gives you the freedom to choose your own path across multiple questlines.

WELCOME TO MOKUMANA ISLAND: Seamlessly Explore multiple regions of the island, including tropical beaches, lush jungles, snowy mountains, mysterious caves, and steamy hotsprings!

UNLOCK THE AMAZING NEW ABILITIES: Help the friendly locals and earn a range of fantastic new power-ups! Vacuum explosive slugs and wake up sleepy villagers with the Noisemaker!

CAPTIVATING STORY: Meet a cast of unforgettable characters across multiple storylines - whilst uncovering the islands deepest secrets. And maybe rebuild the post office too!

EPIC BOSS BATTLES: Get ready to take on giant bosses using Yoku's trusty ball to 'deliver' the final blow.

BEAUTIFUL ARTWORK: Feast your eyes on the breathtaking hand-painted artwork created by games industry veteran artists.
