Chachi Says Console Review: Yoshi’s Woolly World!

Welcome to another Chachi Says Console review! This time we are taking a look at the newly released Yoshi’s Woolly World. Now a lot of people will judge the adults that buy and play This game based on looks alone and you’d be right. The game looks like a basic kids game but completely worth the judgements. I got the edition that came with the yarn knitted Yoshi amiibo for 60 dollars. I also bought the pink one for the fiance because yarn knitted yoshi is something everyone needs!(also this took my total amiibo count up to 2.) Let’s get to Chachi Says Console Review: Yoshi’s Woolly World!

yoshiGame: Yoshi’s Woolly World

Developer: Nintendo

Platform: Wii U

wolly-620x350Object:

Collect the stolen yarn to recreate all of the Yoshi from Craft island.

Game Play:

Magikoopa Kamek is back and causing havoc on Craft island this time. He has disassembled tons of the yarn Yoshis and is trying to escape with the yarn for his own evil uses. Travel across the different sectors of craft island and defeat the legions of shy guys, koopas and magically enhanced enemies courtesy of Kamek. Much like Yoshi’s Island you collect lots of items per level, 5 flowers, 5 yarns, 20 stamp gems and 20 hearts per level to star it and unlock a bonus level for each sector.

The level layouts are that of Yoshi’s island and the story is the same minus the potential for a crying baby Mario which in my opinion makes the game much better. The controls in the game are exactly the same except for the fact that it is on a different controller. The game play in general is exactly the same as Yoshi’s Island which is where my problem with the game lies however it gets made up with the incredible graphics of the game.

On each level you collect gems that can be used to buy power ups at the beginning of each level to help you along the way.  Every so often you unlock more that help you specifically with the world you are playing. things like pit rescue, unlimited watermelon, and ability to withstand lava damage are just a few examples.

The amiibo do not do much for the actual game other than allowing you to add another yoshi to your screen giving you double the Yoshi. You can also scan in other amiibo for Yoshi themed mario, samus, Toad, etc etc. The list goes on. Like other amiibo you can use the yoshi in a variety other games for cool effects. i used it in Mario Maker to create a yarn yoshi mushroom.

Sound and Graphics:

This is where the game gets super creative. The background, enemies and all interactive objects in the game are designed to look like it’s hand made. The graphics in this game are incredible. There are a lot of objects that look as if they were merely arranged and filmed for the game. The idea in the graphics style is what got me interested into the game from the beginning and most likely what the selling point of the game will always be. Well, that and you know, Yoshi! The sound is classic Yoshi noises and backing track round out the experience into a new crafty way. The sound effects and music mesh well with the game play

1280x720-jA6Overall:

Overall, the game play/story leaves a little to be desired because it seems to be essentially Yoshi’s island but the graphics and sound more than make up for it. A wonderfully creative way to display a game for both the old and new audience alike. All in all an enjoyable experience. I give it a 4 out of 5.
