Yoku's Island Express is an "open world pinball adventure" with multiple regions to explore including tropical beaches, lush jungles, snowy mountains, mysterious caves and steamy hot springs, according to the developer's description. Along the way, players will level up to gain new abilities and find some "fantastic new power-ups". Get ready for an epic adventure packed with boss battles, gorgeous artwork and much more.


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.
