First of all, Yoshi fans, dont expect a sequel to Yoshis island or even anything similar to Yoshis story because youll be very disappointed!
Yoshis island is more of an arcade game in the sense that the aim is to complete 2 levels with the best score possible. What, only 2 levels? You say.
Yoshi touch & Go is structured around 2 levels, the first of which sees baby Mario falling from 1,000 yards up in the air, here the player must use the stylus to draw a path of clouds to ensure baby Marios safe arrival to the ground. There are various enemies flying around as well as spiky traps ready to pop one of Marios 3 balloons keeping him afloat. The skill is then to draw a safe path through the various traps while drawing circles around enemies and coins which then encapsulate the item into a bubble which can be thrown at baby Mario to increase his points and as a result, meet as better Yoshi latter on. Blowing on the DS will allow every cloud drawn to blow away if mistakes are made.
On reaching the ground, a Yoshi, based on your score will rescue Mario and take him to the 2nd level. Level 2 sees the player take control of Yoshi, the controls and very similar to level 11, only the stylus is used once again. Yoshi must now fire eggs, by tapping on enemies, circle enemies and coins and finally make it to the finish line.
New styles of play can be unlocked to increase the life of the game such as Marathon where level 2 will continue until Yoshi gets hit. There is also a brilliant multiplayer where Yoshis race against each other in order to reach the finish line or survive the longest.
Many of you may now be put of by the 2 short levels, however Yoshi touch $ Go is one of the best games available on the DS and simply beating high scores and selecting different styles of play, as well as the multiplayer see this game lasting for quite a while. Even after intense play, youll find yourself playing this game months and even years later because of how addictive it is!
