Casino Park YKTTW Discussion
A Videogame Setting in a level where everything is casino-themed.
Casinos. A place of gambling and neon lights. But it also turns out that they make good Videogame Settings. These tend to be wacky. And big. A level filled with giant poker chips, playing cards, roulettes and the like. Most likely as platforms, or hazards. Slot machines usually have an effect on gameplay. Most commonly found in platformers. Seems to be present regardless of the Periphery Demographic's age. They could also be more realistic, but if it's really grounded in reality, just don't bother. A Sub-Trope of Wackyland. May overlap with Pinball Zone, Toy Time and possibly Amusement Park. May also be related to Viva Las Vegas and The Casino. Not to be confused with Golden Saucer, although one may be present within.
