Plot: Say hello to Yoku the Dung Beetle, a new hero who has arrived on Mokumana Island to relieve the resident pterodactyl postmaster, or Pterodactyl, as he’s known, of his duties. He’s ready for the easy life, soaking up the sun and delivering parcels on a tropical paradise! However, Yoku will quickly discover that an ancient Island deity is trapped in a restless sleep. And a host of colourful, quirky islanders are plagued by quakes and storms brought forth by its nightmares. It’s all down to Yoku to traverse the island using a unique blend of pinball mechanics and open world exploration. In an amazing quest to help those in need! Flip and bump our pint-sized protagonist around the stunning hand-painted island. On your quest to rebuild the post-office and wake an old god from its deep slumber. [Source: Amazon]
