Yono and the Celestial Elephants is more than just a Zelda clone. It offers a steady stream of puzzles that gradually increase in complexity providing you with a satisfying challenge. The comforting art style adds to the experience, especially to the characterisation of the different inhabitants that feature in the world. Then there is the endearing and thought-provoking story that helps to give the game its unique charm.

Yono and the Celestial Elephants is a memorable and charming journey with a story that'll actually make you think. Although it suffers from a mostly unchallenging campaign, this is one adventure that you'll definitely be happy to experience.

Yono and the Celestial Elephants, while simplistic in design, hides a curiously metaphysical tale behind it. Those looking for a Zelda-lite adventure might be disappointed by its straightforward approach and lack of upgradability, but those who are willing to give its lighthearted and deliriously cute tale a spin will find a worthy game to play.

If you are looking for an entry level puzzle adventure for your kids, I highly recommend Yono and the Celestial Elephants. With the stunning aesthetic and simple game design, they should have no problem becoming immersed. If you’re looking for something along the lines of a new Zelda, you’ll likely be disappointed in the fighting that’s offered. If you just want to relax with some puzzles and beautiful visuals though, with a chicken in tow, you’ve found the game for that. And I’d be remiss if I didn’t mention this was created by a single person.

Yono has its fair share of flaws, such as its framerate, poor NPC visuals and severely lackluster combat, but it’s still a small package containing an elephant-sized amount of cuteness and charm. If, somehow, you’ve already grown tired of Breath of the Wild but you’re still itching for Zelda-esque adventures, Yono can be a little interesting stopgap for you. Unrelated, I’m not a big fan of Amiibo whatsoever, but I definitely wouldn’t say no to a Yono one. That little thing is just too darn adorable.
