Toki Tori is a small chick who hatches just in time to see all of the other eggs being mysteriously taken away and scattered all throughout the world. You work through the Forest Falls, Creepy Castle, Slime Sewers and Bubble Barrage to find all the eggs and return them to safety.
In each level, you move around the 2D environment, crossing platforms and bridges and up and down ladders to reach and collect every egg. You unlock different abilities, such as a Bridge-Builder, which you can utilise to bridge gaps otherwise impassable, Telewarp which allows you to move to certain close spaces, and the Freeze-o-matic, which allows you to get past enemies. All of these have a limited number of uses in each level, so careful and thoughtful deployment is essential.
The game was originally released on the Gameboy Colour, and then remastered on other systems. A sequel, which replaced the tools with abilities, was also released:
- Toki Tori (2001) GBC, (2008) Wii, (2009) iPhone, (2010) PC and Mac, (2011) Playstation 3, (2013) Wii U, (2015) 3DS, (2018) Switch and (2020) Android.
- Toki Tori 2 (2013) Wii U, Pc and Mac, (2016) Playstation 3, and (2018) Switch.
Toki Tori 2+ is an enhanced version of Toki Tori 2 with extra levels. The latest major release was the Original Toki Tori, which was remastered for the Nintendo Switch in March 2018.

This accessibility report is based on the latest release, the original Toki Tori remaster for the Nintendo Switch. Other versions and releases will differ in the accessibility features they sport.
There aren't any difficulty settings, but each level is either classified as Easy, Hard, or Bonus, and you need to beat every previous level before unlocking the next. You can enter rewind mode by holding down a button, which allows you to go back to before you made a mistake and correct it.
While all text is high contrast, some of it is rather small and as a consequence difficult to read. The eggs you need to get are bright and are easy to see, and the background is generally devoid of movement. However, some moving foreground elements cover your character, such as waterfalls, which can distract from the gameplay.
While you can mute sound effects, music, or both, there is no adjustment of the volume of either.
