One of the most anticipated indie games on the season is Yoku’s Island Express, a pinball platformer shown last year that splices that the pinball gameplay seen in titles like Sonic Spinball with a Metroidvania-style open globe. Programmer Villa Gorilla and publisher Team17 released a brand new trailer for its title that goes on the skills players will have the ability to use in-game.
The first ability that the trailer shows off would be that the Noisemaker, which can be a party whistle that’s Yoku’s horn. This whistle is what is mainly utilised to interact with items inside the game’s universe. Next up is your Fish, which Yoku comes across throughout his trip and can be utilized to float underwater.
Finally, there is the Slug Vaccum. This pops up slugs found across the island and can be utilized to split rocks and detect new places. Yoku’s Island Express’ gameplay is currently fluid and fun at it core (it even made our Best Indie Games of E3 2017 record), so that I curious to find out how these different abilities will truly spice things up in-game.
You are able to take a look at the new trailer below.
