And, the treasure of Jewelry Land, 12 gems had been plundered!!! Who could be responsible? Could it be that evil Koopa Clan?

Overview

One of only a few games for the SNES Super Scope light gun, and one of the best. The game had a nicely done 1st person engine, in which you took Mario's place on Yoshi's back, hitting enemies as they came across your path. The music was original. However, the game generally sounded flat and there wasn't a whole lot of variation between sounds. The control was a strong point. In the single player mode, Yoshi went along his own path, but you controlled his jumping using the extra functions button on the Super Scope. In two-player mode, the second player took control of Yoshi, and commanded is jump function as well as his limited mobility. Other than that, fire away.
