The mix of action adventure and jump & run comes from the development studio Playtonic, which largely consists of former Rare employees. The lovable duo has to face the archenemy Capital B, who apparently is up to something. Among other things, he plans to enslave a colony of bees. A special feature of Yooka-Laylee and the unreachable hiding place is the mix of different perspectives: While the upper world appears in a 3D robe, the actual levels are held in 2D or 2.5D. You can also unlock an alternative version of each section, which increases the replay value significantly.

With the current campaign in the Epic Games Store, you can grab a total of twelve games over twelve days. The offer changes at 5:00 p.m. German time and is available 24 hours a day. To get access to the free full PC versions, all you need is an account with the download platform. Note that you have to link the PC games to your profile within the one day promotional period. Then you can play the full version permanently.
