An Adorable Adventure; Yoshi’s Island

As a Christmas present, I received a 3DS from my mom. I don’t remember why I wanted one in the first place, but it was all I could talk about. I also received two games; Luigi’s Dark Moon and Animal Crossing New Leaf. I spent hours playing Animal Crossing and didn’t devote my time to anything else. Eventually, I got sick of the game and set my 3DS aside for some time. Lately, I have made it a goal of mine to use my 3DS more. Yoshi’s Island is a game I have been slowly playing through until completing the game yesterday. Here are my initial thoughts.

Yoshi’s Island takes place immediately after Super Mario World where a stork is delivering baby Mario and Luigi to new parents. Kamek thwarts this plan by kidnapping the stork and baby Luigi. Yoshi now with little baby Mario attempt to rescue Luigi and the kidnapped stork. Personally, I could care less about the actual story. I care about the levels and the ease of playing the game.

I will say some of the levels were incredibly fun. In the Brave the Bumpty Blizzard level, Yoshi slides around and encounters penguins to interact with. The tropical world 3 levels are another one of my favorites from the game.

Yoshi’s Island doesn’t offer a lot of rewards for replaying the game. I mean now that I have completed it, I probably won’t play it again for some time. I could collect all the coins, but there’s no incentive for me to do that. Unless I could unlock additional content? It’s not worth it.

If you’re 3DS is collecting dust on a shelf, I do recommend picking this game up. It’s adorable, cute and a relaxing game to ease into picking up the 3DS again. Now I’m incredibly excited because the next game on my shelf to play is Legend of Zelda Ocarina of Time and it’s my first time playing. I can’t wait.

  1. My 3DS has been collecting dust lately too. I have been playing Ocarina of Time off and on for the last couple of months, but I just can’t get into it. This game sounds adorable though. Maybe I’ll see if I can track a copy down.


  2. I need to get some more games for the 3DS. It’s such a great platform to play games with my daughter since there are so many kid-friendly options! Right now we are playing through Pokemon XY, and we got her Pokemon Moon for her birthday (which I am SO excited about haha!) I really hope enjoy Ocarina of Time! I have so much nostalgia wrapped up in that game it’s ridiculous. 😀


    • I’m looking forward to starting it because I never grew up with Nintendo games so I like that I get to replay them and they’re remastered! I still haven’t beat Pokemon X yet. On my list is Kirby Planet Robobot and Pokemon Sun or Moon to purchase.
