About Yooka-Laylee and the Impossible Lair

About this game

Join heroes Yooka and Laylee as they return for a new platform hybrid adventure in Yooka-Laylee and the Impossible Lair. With this Steam PC key, you'll follow the quirky duo on a new mission to stop arch-nemesis Capital B.

HE'S AT IT AGAIN!
That dastardly villain Capital B is up to no good, his latest evil masterplan is to use a 'Hivemind' device to enslave an entire kingdom of bees. With the help of Queen Phoebee and her Royal Beetallion, you'll lead Yooka and Laylee into CB's 'Impossible Lair' in an attempt to thwart his evil plans.

2.5D IS THE PLACE TO BE
Enjoy a new yet retro perspective in Yooka-Laylee and the Impossible Lair. Unlike the original Yooka-Laylee title, you'll explore 2.5D platform levels - each offering beautiful, rich visuals with detail and depth.

A NEW HUB
Head to the 3D Overworld, another new feature in Yooka-Laylee and the Impossible Lair, which is much more than just a hub to hop from level to level. Explore and unlock more 2D levels by completing objectives and puzzles in the Overworld, rescue the Royal Beetallion bees and find collectibles.

ALTERNATE STATE
Once you've mastered a level, go back and experience again with a range of alternate level states. Flip switches in the Overworld hub to create new landscapes - hook up electricity, submerge them in water, freeze or flip them upside down for radically modified challenges!

KNOW WHEN TO STRIKE (OR STING)
Feel free to tackle Capital B’s Impossible Lair at any time, but be warned as you may find it too much of a challenge without the help of the Royal Beetallion. Help free them by completing levels and add them to your defenses when planning your attack on Capital B’s traps!

YOUR OFFICIAL YOOKA-LAYLEE AND THE IMPOSSIBLE LAIR STEAM PC KEY GIVES YOU:

  • Rich visuals and colorful worlds to explore
  • 2.5D platforming levels with a 3D Overworld hub
  • The latest installment in the adventure platformer series
  • Developed by key creative talent behind 'Donkey Kong Country'

"Despite a strong game structure change and the presence of 2.5D levels, Yooka-Layle and the impossible Lair has nothing to envy to the previous chapter."

The sequel to Yooka-Laylee is now isometric/2D instead of 3D. The music is fantastic, the visuals are beautiful. The game is challenging, but not unfair. The story is ... there, it's not really important. It's clearly strongly inspired by the Donkey Kong games and that's a good thing. Controls are good and the game has very little bugs.

Solid platformer. If you want a challenge you must try this. The impossible lair lives up to its name and I prefer this game to the first. Very reminiscent of Donkey Kong. Overworld reminds me a bit of DKC3 and there are secret exits in some levels.

An excellent homage to the old Donkey Kong Country games, and a lot better than the original Yooka-Laylee

I really loved the game. It reminds me of the donkey Kong country saga in SNES. So a new way to revisit and enjoy one of the best platformers is latest years.
