Super Mario Kart, Super Mario RPG: Legend of the Seven Stars, Super Mario World and Super Mario World 2: Yoshi's Island are the four Super Mario games that are included in the 21 pre-installed games line-up of Nintendo's Mini SNES Classic console.

A 1995 game, Super Mario World 2: Yoshi's Island was originally made by Nintendo for the SNES platform. Yoshi can be seen taking Baby Mario through the 50 echelons in order to hook him up with his brother Luigi. Luigi had been abducted by Baby Bowser’s underlings. Yoshi can prance about and he handles conundrums with ease and also gathers certain objects of use in this game. This is the first game with Yoshi, the dinosaur, as the major character. This game is superb to play and will raise the hearbeats of gamers everywhere.


Shigeru Miyamoto was busy tinkering away with Super Mario World when he got the brilliant idea of making Yoshi the next hero of the game. Miyamoto’s pet aversion were other Yoshi games. So he decided to make this one which went on to win acclaim and praise from all quarters. It has Mario-like graphic details. A hand-drawn cartoon style prevails in this game which is in fact the opposite of the game Donkey Kong Country. Miyamoto added lots of magic stuff onto this game’s platform. An extra microchip comes with he game’s cartridge which allows for a whole lot more visual display features.

Release Date

The game was released in North America on October 4th, 1995. In Japan, it gained entry on August 5th, 1995. As for Europe, it got the game on October 6th, 1995. The game was lauded wherever it got launched and in all three cultural spheres of the globe, it was appreciated by fans and gamers alike.


Mario is just one of two brothers whom the evil Magikoopa Kamek kidnapped. Mario was lucky in that he ended up on Yoshi’s island. Yoshi decides to take Mario to his parents. Kamek meanwhile sends in his evil forces to get hold of Mario. Mario is shown as a vulnerable infant unless a certain star is stolen which wil make him invincible. Yoshi uses eggs to attack the enemy forces which are strong and merciless. Yoshi even has the magical ability to change from a dinosaur into odd military vehicles all the better to inflict massive damage on the enemy. Yoshi has to keep Mario close to his bosom and never let him go no matter what.

Game Play

A 2D side scrolling platform, this game has Yoshi escort Baby Mario to his brother Luigi through all kinds of difficult and precarious terrain. There are six worlds that have to be traversed. Luigi has been kidnapped by a Magikoopa named Kamek. In each echelon, Yoshi takes on a different hue. Yoshi uses his long tongue to trap enemy entities and he chews them in order to spit them out. If he swallows these enemies, they become eggs. Both options are available on the game’s platform. Both alternatives allow Yoshi to attack the obstacles in his way. Yoshi has a maximum carrying capacity of half a dozen eggs. Yoshi eats watermelons and uses their seeds as missiles. Finally, he can do flutter jumps which are another feather in his cap and also accomplish ground pounds. The ultimate goal all along is to guard Baby Mario from the evil entities. Yoshi has a limited number of lives which get subtracted each time he is mortally hit by an enemy entity. Along the way, Yoshi gets to collect stars and flowers as well as red coins. These are all grist for the mill.


It was one of those games which are an instant hit with the gamer crowd. The game won near global acclaim. In the mid-90s, it proved to be the best platform game of all time. A big game, it was the most beautiful as regards graphics and visual effects. It received a score of 33 out of 40. The sheer size and playing potential of this game won it many accolades. It was after all the brainchild of a decade of single-minded hard work, dedication and devotion. Some called it a work of art that transcended any graphic designing that might have gone into it. The variegated features of this game make it an interesting thing to manipulate although in a vicarious manner. It sold well over 4 million copies at the time of its inception. Great praise was shown for this game. It was called a healthy challenge and something which lent easy accessibility. The console platform has never seen a game of this ilk. Some of its special effects were simply magical in their intensity and beauty.
