Back in the day there was not a lot of diversity to the puzzle genre. In fact most thought they needed to drop something from the top to the bottom. The same items would match and vanish. Yoshi comes from that era. We have four rows and must match two of the same objects. The cool feature in Yoshi is swapping the rows at the bottom. Mario is at the bottom and he swaps the plates. This is done to match two vertically. I noticed two horizontally, and diagonally did not produce matches. Maybe the technology was not ready for that.
There are a variety of different objects families can match. I liked matching two of the egg pieces since it hatched a little Yoshi - who quickly vanished. A game is over in Yoshi when the player stacks a row all the way up to the top. The one aspect parents need to be aware of with Yoshi is addiction. It is easy to get addicted to this game. I know I can do better next time. Oh no I am late for an appointment. Please be careful that playing Yoshi does not create real world problems in your life.
Yoshi has a
nice color scheme and some fun little music. The game play can take some
getting used to at first. Once you do it feels pretty natural. Yoshi is
an above average game for families.
