Leilani’s Island offers some adorable beatdowns courtesy of its cute heroine, with players able to help her kick, roll, and smash her way through the nasty wildlife and machines attacking her tropical home in this Warioland-inspired platformer.
Leilani appears to be taking some cues from Sonic as well, as she is capable of a powerful, speedy roll that will plow through anything that means to give her trouble. This roll can also be used to break down walls, bounce off ropes, and let her get around in ways she might not otherwise be able to.
This isn’t her only ability, as picking up items will let her get bigger and stronger, let her deliver a powerful kick that can send enemies flying or knock items out of her way, or float around in a bubble. These powers are used for more than just combat, as Leilani can also use them to find new routes through each stage, or solve puzzling environmental setups.
