Rextro, a polygonal Tyrannosaur, pops up on each world to host an arcade challenge, unlocked by locating that world’s Play Coin. Beat it and you’ll earn a Pagie; top the leaderboard and you’ll get another. The games themselves are deliberately oldfashioned in approach – many play like extended Mario Party minigames – but in several cases that simplicity belies a frustrating challenge, usually thanks to clumsy controls. All are available to play from the menu and support up to four players, and it’s here that the better games come into their own. A capture-the-flag variant, a rudimentary kart racer and a scrap over quills in an icy arena prove surprisingly diverting – even if you might wonder whether Playtonic’s limited resources might have been better spent elsewhere.
