This month i’ve been feeling like everything around me is cute, cuddly and woolly, and it’s all down to the latest game we’ve been reviewing on the Wii U as part of the Nintendo Family Bloggers – Yoshi’s Woolly World.
The game is a beautiful puzzler, full of colour and cuddly yarn filled enemies.
Jacob and I absolutely love this game, and we especially love that we can play it together as two Yoshi’s helping each other out to finish the level.
In the game you jump around and flutter between platforms, collecting yarn balls and tossing them at enemies as you go.
You can find yarn balls inside big sewing boxes dotted around the place, and also make yarn balls from your enemies instead of eggs as Yoshi usually does.
As well as shooting your yarn balls at enemies, Yoshi also needs to throw them to create platforms, or sometimes to find secret entrances and hidden rooms.
Each level has tons of collectables to find as you play. If you can find them all you can unlock bonus levels.
One of the funniest parts of the game is when Yoshi suddenly unravels, and then knits himself into an accessory like an umbrella, or a mega Yoshi. It’s exciting when it happens to see what Yoshi is going to change himself into.
Another great feature is the really cool way Yoshi’s Wooly World can use Amiibo’s.
The new Woolly Yoshi Amiibo is definitely my favourite Amiibo so far, he’s gorgeous.
However in the game, if you have other Amiibos like Bowser or Mario, you can change your in game Yoshi to change into one of those.
Mario Yoshi is the funniest we think, as it’s hilarious seeing Yoshi with the plumbers curvy little moustache.
I so wish I could knit as we had such an amazing box of crafting things sent to us from Nintendo with a copy of the game, including some yarn and knitting needles. I’ve even been on Youtube trying to learn as I would love to make a cuddly Yoshi of my own, but to be honest I’m getting nowhere. I will get there eventually though, I’m not giving up
Yoshi’s Woolly World is a really fun game, whether playing alone or with a friend. I like the way that if you want you can power through the level as fast as you can and progress onwards. Or you can take your time and try to find every single collectable and hidden area. It’s really up to you.
Thanks so much to Nintendo for our awesome Yoshi’s Woolly World Bloggers box.
