Yoshis Island DS
Sequel to the seminal Super Famicom platformer with child like cartoony crayon squiggles and cheery colours making for a bright and breezy platformer. The key as before is to not lose Yoshis passenger for too long so the punishment of instant death is lessened encouraging exploration for the hidden coins and areas. The attributes of Yoshis passenger also come into play with Peach able to slow down falls Mary Poppins style with her brolly and Mario can rebound eggs off walls for tactical shots at seemingly unreachable targets. The double screen DS is put to good use - sometimes only the bottom screen can be used to see the enemy masked up top as in the clever clash with the ghost in the mirror.
