Summary

Super Lucky's Tale might be a title to get older gamers all misty-eyed with nostalgia, but it stands out thanks to some thoroughly modern features. It harks back to the days of the N64, the golden age of 3D platform games with weird, wacky and inventive level designs. While the charming feel to the game looks backwards, however, owners of the Xbox One X will be able to play the game in a native 4K resolution at 60 frames per second.

Translation: whichever sort of Xbox One you're playing it on, it will look silky smooth.

The first Lucky's Tale was an Occulus Rift game which you played from a floating viewpoint, so you might be wondering what the developers have done to keep things interesting on a flat display. The answer, straightforwardly, is that they've gone for a richer, more interesting level design that enables players to really dust off that 3D platforming skillset.

In the game, the ever-optimistic and lovable Lucky is out to help his sister rescue the Book of Ages from Jinx, a mysterious villain attempting to re-shape the world to unknown ends. Along the way, you'll mix it up with the likes of Kitty Litter, Kooky Spookies, farming worms and misplaced Yetis.

If you're looking for charm, platforming and puzzle solving, you'll find all three in spades in Super Lucky's Tale.
