The Kartos Challenge is a challenge where Yooka and Laylee must ride Kartos on a track to collect the required number of gems in order to receive a Pagie. Kartos can shoot cannonballs out of his mouth to destroy Corplet Drones or barrels. If the duo collides with a wooden barrel, then the duo will lose three gems. If the duo gets burnt by Mr. Blowys' flames, the duo will lose five gems. If the duo falls off the railroad track, the duo must restart the challenge.
