Critic Reviews for Yono and the Celestial Elephants

I was pretty impressed how much depth the game actually had overall, considering its flat beginning.

Yono and the Celestial Elephants may look like a children's game but its artistic style should not be the basis for judgment, this is a game that can feel surprising and its approach to actual issues and relevant topics will resonate with many players beyond the younger demographics. Where Yono falls short, however, is on the too simple challenge posed by its puzzles and on its somewhat disappointingly short lifespan.

Yono and the Celestial Elephants, while simplistic in design, hides a curiously metaphysical tale behind it. Those looking for a Zelda-lite adventure might be disappointed by its straightforward approach and lack of upgradability, but those who are willing to give its lighthearted and deliriously cute tale a spin will find a worthy game to play.

Yono and the Celestial Elephants combines interesting story and fun gameplay into a title that is fun for everyone. While many won't find anything in the game particularly challenging it still remains an entertaining experience.

Yono and the Celestial Elephants is an adorable Zelda-like about a woke elephant doing his best to help people, zombies, and robots co-exist.

All in all, Yono and the Celestial Elephants is a game that is acutely aware of the great titles that it draws inspiration from, even it falls a little short in its well-meaning execution.

The straightforward design might not be for everyone, as no great challenge is nestled in Yono's escapades. This is an easier game that's perfect for those who want to sink into a contemplative cartoon world or maybe kick back and play an easy-to-comprehend game with their kid.
