A labour of love that few are likely to appreciate – but if for some reason you did want a hand-drawn remake of Toki then this is your lucky year.

Toki isn't a perfect game -- hell, I'm not sure it's even a great arcade game. But it really hit me in the nostalgia-feels. It's a fantastic remake from a technical perspective, even if it's totally lacking in extra features. If you like good old-fashioned arcade games, you can do a whole lot worse than this one. Just make sure you temper your expectations, as a lot has changed in the gaming landscape in the 30 years since its original release.

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 retrocollector edition, which includes a wooden cabinet replica.

The new Toki is exactly the same old Toki. A rather hollow experience for 2018 players.

Toki is an absolutely beautiful remaster, with fantastic hand-drawn backgrounds, brilliant character animation and impressive boss designs. Aesthetics only go so far, though, and while the game itself is fun to play (if a little cheap with its deaths at times) the reality is it's an arcade game at heart. As such, its six stages won't last you too long, especially if you're the target audience – someone who remembers Toki back in the day and has continued to play platformers for the three decades that followed – and once it's done there's no real replay value.

Toki is a visually successful remaster of a game dear to a lot of quite old gamers. It hasn't changed a lot, which can be good for arcade pasionnates but frustrating for those who are not receptive to the proposition, and offers nothing more but it's fine.

Toki is back in a remake of the arcade classic which now lands in the Nintendo Switch and it brings with it a marvelous audiovisual rework that gives it a gorgeous overall presentation. It's also clear that this remake is mostly targeting its original audience, as little else seems to have changed, including a difficulty level that is all but inaccessible for more recent players and a lack of additional gameplay components.

If you enjoy the old-school nature of Toki and are willing to explore every nook and cranny, then this is a remake very much worth your time

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

Toki is a true to form remaster of the arcade classic with updated graphics, music and that ever growing death tally.
