Boomerang. At first glance you may think that TY doesn’t seem to do anything original: it has a hub, a bad guy, around fifteen levels, collectables which you must collect to unlock new areas. My favourite video game genre is the platformer, so I’ve played a lot of the likes of Crash Bandicoot, Spyro the Dragon, Sly Cooper and Ratchet and Clank over the years.
My One Big Highlight
While Rainbow Cliffs is a great level to visit, it wasn’t until I visited Snow Worries that I realised this game was going to be something special. Among the largest environments, it has you sliding down a snowy hill, with ice. You then have to make your way up the mountains, while exploring every nook and cranny – and avoid falling! Oh, and the soundtrack is awesome too!
Elephant In the Room
While they did try to spice things up with some minor plot twists, the story follows the usual “the evil bad guy wants to take over the world and you have to stop them" plot. It didn't help that I wasn't too impressed with Boss Cass as the main villain. I've seen better in a platformer.
