Super Mario World 2: Yoshi's Island

released on Aug 05, 1995

Super Mario World 2: Yoshi's Island is a platform video game acting as a prequel to 1990's Super Mario World. The game casts players as Yoshi as he escorts Baby Mario through 48 levels in order to reunite him with his brother Luigi, who had been kidnapped by Baby Bowser's minions. As a Super Mario series platformer, Yoshi runs and jumps to reach the end of the level while solving puzzles and collecting items. In a style new to the series, the game has a hand-drawn aesthetic and is the first to have Yoshi as its main character. The game introduces his signature abilities to flutter jump, produce eggs from swallowed enemies, and transform into vehicles.

Great game even if I don't enjoy certain things as much as I did back then. Great music, just wish there was more variety. Finished the game with 85 lives even after dying several times on a few of the later levels. I feel like the scoring system could have been reworked so there was more incentive to try for a high score, 100%ing every level just to get an extra one isn't as appetizing as it was when I was a kid with free time haha. Final boss is GOATed.

Review in progress:
One of the best 2D platformers ever made, along with Super Mario Bros. 3 and Super Mario World. Lacks the difficulty of SMB3 and the secret exits of SMW, which is a shame. Like with other Mario games, boss battles are still too short and easy.

The sheer level of fresh creativity with every level is shocking to say the least

Lindo! Delicioso!
O melhor plataforma de SNES na minha opinião.
Tudo nele é bom. Até o irritante choro do bebê Mario é perdoável.

best art style in any old school 2D nintendo game its beautiful

Best of the 2D Mario games without contest
