Yoshi's Wooly World

Three-dimensional platformer for the whole family developed by Nintendo. Yoshi’s Wooly World is set in a world made of yarn. We play as titular green dinosaur Yoshi, one of the main mascots of Japanese company, and the game expands on concept of Kirby’s Epic Yarn. We received a classic platformer in 2.5D, in which our hero is followed by running eggs, which can be shoot at various targets or parts of a scenery. Thanks to the world being made of yarn, many objects can be ripped up to unlock new paths and secrets. Yoshi’s Wooly World offers a cooperation mode for two players. Each three-dimensional location is made of virtual yarn, and every character resembles a handcrafted puppet filled with cotton.
