Ayo The Clown is a great character in a very accessible and fun platformer. Started off a bit rough, you have to unlock the most basic of actions ls like jumping, attacks are timed power-ups. After the initial drawbacks, the game does open up into a solid platformer with huge levels full of secrets and alternate paths. Boss battles and power-ups mix the action up but it only goes so far before it all gets repetitive.

Gaming since the Atari 2600, I enjoy the weirdness in games counting Densha De Go and RC De Go as my favourite titles of all time. I prefer gaming of old where buying games from a shop was a thing, Being social in person was a thing. Join me as I attempt to adapt to this new digital age!
