Review: Yoshi’s Crafted World
Yoshi’s Crafted World
I bought Yoshi’s Crafted World immediately after the release on March 29th 2019. Weeks prior, while browsing the Nintendo Shop, I downloaded the free demo and was instantly charmed by the child-like art style, adorable Yoshi noises, and engaging gameplay. The levels are uniquely themed with stylistic cardboard constructions and vibrant colors. I’ve been playing the game quickly on my first run through, with plans to return to previous levels to collect all the smiley flowers, coins, and hearts that I can. Although, I’m afraid I will not be able to 100% the game… the “Be Afraid of the Dark” level in Shadowville is filled with creepy clown dolls chasing you around with giant axes. I ran through the level quickly, managed to grab 5/14 smiley flowers, and have no plans to return to that hellscape.

Yoshi can model a variety of costumes to protect the player from damage. HOWEVER, the rarer the costume is the more endurance the costume has. So I don’t see why you would choose the “normal” bottle cap over the “super rare” Gator Train Car, unless there’s a secret achievement for beating the whole game as a Yoshi wearing a bottle cap?
This game is incredibly fun in two player mode! Be warned, however, of the chaos of two Yoshi occupying the same space. Hazards including accidental swallowing, pushing, or jumping onto your gaming companion. We give Yoshi’s Crafted World a well deserved 8 out of 10. Super cute game, highly recommend!
