What Is Ayo The Clown?

Ayo the Clown is a platformer all about the crazy adventures of the titular Ayo. Players will take on the role of Ayo as he searches for his dog Bo, who has mysteriously disappeared. This “not so average” clown will embark on a journey that takes him across eight unique regions. Players must fight against larger than life bosses and hordes of enemies all while utilising classic clown-based weapons such as the water balloon and balloon sword. Here is some of what you can expect when Ayo the Clown launches next month:

  • Make your way across unique platforming stages each with their own distinct theme
  • Come up against huge bosses and a bountiful supply of enemies that will stop at nothing to ensure Ayo fails
  • Utilise interesting weapons such as a tank, helicopter, dinosaurs, toy hammers, balloon sword, water balloons and more
  • Make the most of Ayo’s crafty skills such as wall jumps and head stomps
  • Complete plenty of side quests as you search for your missing dog
  • Find all the collectibles scattered across each stage
