Sometimes, all you need to know is the hook. In Yoku’s Island Express the hook is simple: pinball plus Metroidvania. You play as a small beetle, the titular Yoku, who’s taken over an island’s post office role. Far from just delivering packages though, the bulk of your journey will be spent uncovering an ancient prophecy and saving the island’s denizens from disaster. And you’ll do so by bouncing around the world like an enormous pinball table. An enormous, incredibly elaborate pinball table, with flippers popping out of the ground to launch you high in the air, or lengthy ramps that whisk you away to new areas. It’s just delightful, though be warned that this game requires a low-end graphics card with at least 2GB of RAM to run.
