    The return of a classic game that used to "eat" our coins like crazy back in the late 80's. This new edition of Toki retains all the charm of the original as well as its difficulty. The new art makes it fresh and playable again, but the lack of any kind of extra content left us wanting more.

    Although the lack of extra content and option is alarming, Toki still is a great game, and the new visuals make it more enjoyable than ever.

    A beautiful remaster of the original Toki, with the same great elements and flaws of the 1989 arcade. Short, difficult and fun. We love the retro-collector edition, which includes a wooden cabinet replica.

    Almost 30 years later Toki returns with a remake as challenging and fun as ever, but with a renewed audiovisual section that will delight all types of players.

    Toki is amusing for a few hours, before the poor level design and the repetitive combat system comes to light.

    Toki looks better than ever and plays great if you don't get stuck at a bad respawn point. When you die a bunch you need to start the game all over again and you can't save either. It's a shame because saving would make this retro game so much better.

    The retro appeal is lost, the mechanics aren’t updated for modern times, and it offers nothing of historical or archival value. Frankly, I have no idea who Toki’s intended audience is – someone obviously loved it enough to dig it up and give it a fresh coat of paint, I’m just not sure why.

    TOKI remake is a game that you love, or hate. Like the original.
    The1989's game had its problems: a general slowness in the movements of the ape, with a difficulty not-so-well balanced. The Microids release shows love to the original, preserving merits and defects. The new visuals are excellent, you feel to "play a cartoon". It's simple: If you loved the old TOKI, probably you'll love the new TOKI. For me, it deserves an "8/10".
    P.S. I bought the (Retro)Collector Edition, easily one of the best collections seen around. Stickers, comic, small wooden case, and the game cartridge, for 40,00€ circa. That's a great value.
    The digital delivery version ISN'T so great, so... I advise you to put money on retail.

Sadly there's no additional content (extras, save states, original graphics option, etc) for this remaster, but only the arcade experience in different difficulty levels.
    It's a nice game you'll love if you liked the original and the amazing physical edition with a wooden arcade cabinet for the switch is certainly a welcome addition.
