Apparently, I've become a bit of a digital pinball snob because it took me way too long to embrace the idea of pinball working as platforming game. Once I gave it a chance, Yoku's Island Express immediately sucked me in to its charming postal adventure.

It's rare for a game to hit my completionist triggers at the same time as it provide a relaxing escape from the stresses of more urgent games. I loved casually exploring every crevice of each of the pinball puzzles presented to me as I made my way across the island. The characters I met along the way only added to overflowing my joy tank. Thanks for the bouncy happy place, Yoku's Island Express.
