A 2D platformer in which a cartoon scarecrow called Stitchy embarks on a journey to regain his stolen corn from a group of fiendish Tooki, Stitchy in Tooki Trouble plays out as a smooth and fun adventure but does feel a touch samey in gameplay as you enter the latter sections and brings nothing new to the table in terms of features or gameplay. 

That said, if you are a fan of titles such as Donkey Kong Country and early Crash Bandicoot, you’ll definitely get along well with this funky scarecrow.

I was a big fan of the simple story setup and cute intro as well as the extremely smooth (60 fps) visuals and art style.

Each world is broken up into ten stages, 9 standard platform levels and a boss fight as well as an extra stage not required for story progression that can only be unlocked by collecting a certain amount of totems scattered around each stage – much as in the Donkey Kong Country games.

Stitchy has a very solid and responsive control scheme, whilst he can jump and perform a ground attack, there are no bonus pick-ups or side activities beyond the stages, bosses and the occasional mine cart level. 

Whilst this does make the game somewhat formulaic, it’s a very solid formula. The platforming is tight, the bosses are fun and the stages do have visual variety. I’d also like to give a big shout-out to the music, which changes on each stage and is really welcomed. The large selection of tracks is a treat as it does add variety in a game that kind of needs it.

"Right, I’m off before I make any corn jokes"
