Sumatra: Fate of Yandi from Ratalaika Games and Cloak and Dagger Games is an old-school inspired point and click adventure game on PlayStation. Check our Sumatra: Fate of Yandi review!
In Sumatra: Fate of Yandi from Ratalaika Games and Cloak and Dagger Games is an old-school inspired point and click adventure game on PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 5 in this cross-buy release. You’ll be playing as the titular Yandi, who has to cut logs in the jungle for a living. Unfortunately, one day there’s been some heavy rain, and when he’s trying to place some hooks on one log, there’s a landslide. He’s caught by this and ends up being thrown into the river. He luckily manages to get on top of a log that floats down the river, which saves his life!
With Sumatra: Fate of Yandi being a point and click adventure game, you can certainly expect lots of pointing and clicking in your future! You’ll move a cursor on the screen with the left analog stick, using the right one to move the cursor at a slower pace. You can press the X button to interact with objects and characters. You can also press the Circle button to observe things to get some extra insight. At the top of the screen is your inventory. Any item you collect will be added there, and you can use said items with other stuff on the screen or use items with each other. The Circle button can once again be pressed when hovering over an object to examine them.
Along with a game’s story, the puzzles you’ll have to solve are a big part of the point and click experience. To give you an idea of what type of puzzles you’ll run into – but without spoiling too much of the game for you -, here’s an example for one of the puzzles you’ll have to complete. A woman you meet needs you to collect some water for her. While she does have a bottle, it is full of holes, which is not good for transporting water. If only you could, say, find some tape that you could use to plug the holes for the bottle, you’d be able to solve her problems! The tape will be found inside of a small box with a rusty padlock, so if you give it a good whack with something – like, say, a shovel – you should be able to gain access to its contents.
Sumatra: Fate of Yandi has a full trophy list with a Platinum trophy for your troubles. There are a handful of trophies you’ll need to watch out for, but the rest will unlock as you progress through the game’s adventure. The trophies are split into six Bronze trophies, a hearty eleven Silver trophies, and seven Gold trophies, and once they all pop, you’ll find yourself with a new Platinum trophy in your collection.
Sumatra: Fate of Yandi is a fun, old-school infused adventure game that pays homage to the classics such as the Monkey Island series and other games from the LucasArt archives. It’s one that you can probably complete in around 3-4 hours at most, depending on your experience with adventure games, with trophy hunters probably deciding to get the support of a trophy guide to cut that time in half. Sumatra: Fate of Yandi is out on PlayStation 4 with a budget price of $6.99.
