Pinball-platformer Yoku’s Island Express is free on the Epic Store

Yoku’s Island Express, released in 2018, is a “pinball-themed platform-adventure” about a beetle tied to a ball who is also a postman who cannot jump, but instead travels through a lush, lovely game world via flippers, bumpers, and launchers. It sounds weird, but it comes together surprisingly well in “a beguiling game of modest brilliance,” as we said in our 85% review.

“Yoku’s Island Express carries itself with a carefree charm from title screen to credits and beyond, its cheerfully mellow vibe ensuring that any moments of potential frustration just melt away … In its unassuming way, this is a remarkable achievement for a debut, combining two of the oldest types of game into something that feels daisy-fresh,” we wrote.
