As we already told you, these days we are playing with Poocky & Yoshi’s Woolly World, the new super kawaii game for Nintendo 3DS. Thanks to Nintendo Italia, we had the chance to try the game, and it immediately became our new obsession: it’s so fun, one level leads to another! Today, we bring you with us in the marvellous world made of wool of Yoshi and Poochy: ready for a new adventure?
Welcome to the Woolly World
Our adventure starts here, in the island where the colourful Yarn Yoshis live, one different from the other. The peace of their village is disturbed by the evil Kamek, who transforms the poor Yoshis in wool balls. Luckily, some of them manage to escape and they get on the trail of their friends. Our task is to help Yoshi to find all of the wool balls and defeat the huge enemies Kamek bring up along the way.
How to play
Poocky & Yoshi’s Woolly World is a classic platform game, that is a videogame in the style of Super Mario Bros., also with tubes to enter hidden rooms and carnivorous flowers. This world however is all made of wool (and felt, beads, buttons…) and, thanks to his sticky tongue, Yoshi can undo knots revealing secret passages, transform enemies into balls to throw and make woolly platform on “skeletons” of wire. He can also become bigger and acquire special powers in mini-scenes you can access during the game. Yes, it’s as fun as it seems!
The game has two modes: classic and mellow. Of course, we have chosen the latter, because we are really terrible at this kind of game and because in mellow mode we can play with the adorable Poochy puppies, that can find hidden passages in the game better than us. Thanks to their help, it’s easier to find the wool, the beads and all the various objects we must collect in each level! Nevertheless, it’s still a bit complicated to understand what we have to do and we had to play some levels more times before completing them, and this is good because we love an easy win but not too easy!
