pleasant game for those rainy afternoons
This is actually a fairly addicting puzzle game. Yoshi, not the same as Yoshi's Cookie, was released back in the NES's final days and didn't receive much notice. Okay so it got SOME notice, mostly just to compare it to Tetris (something that seems to happen to many puzzle games).
Compared to other puzzle games, I think Yoshi stands up quite well. It's a fine puzzle game. I can't think of anything else to say. Okay, I'll tell you a story.
I wanted this game REALLY bad when it was first released. So I went to Delaware with my mom, and we bought the game at a store called Woolworths, which is now out of business (in fact, I think the whole company is out of business). Before they went out of business, they reduced the price for all their video games, and in doing so, made many gamers very happy. Unfortunately, this game was still pretty expensive which made the trip to Delaware not as satisfying as we had hoped. But I still bought Yoshi that day. Sorry for boring you.
Good Tetris like game
This is a pretty good game, much like Tetris. There is an original concept though, because little monsters drop down like blocks. They drop down, you do not turn them, instead Yoshi is at the bottom of the screen holding up four plates (to collect the monsters), and you move him around, and pivot these plates to collect the monsters. Its not that simple though, the only way to kill these monsters is to capture them into egg halves that drop down. First get a lower half of an egg, drop a few monsters onto the half egg, then drop the top half of the egg. Then the eggs, squeeze together killing the enemies! Like a verticle Tetris!
