One day, it just happened... Something terrible came to pass at Yoshi's Island. The world became locked in a picture book! The Super Happy Tree was stolen, and this weakened all of the Yoshis. This foul crime could be the misdeed of none other than Baby Bowser!

At a remote edge of the island, six fresh eggs hatched. They seemed to be okay. Said one Baby Yoshi to the Little Yoshi, "Oh my! This is such a big problem for us, so newly hatched. What are we to do? We should all talk about this!"

After much discussion, they hatched a plan. By eating lots of fruit, they would be filled with happiness. With all of the Yoshis happy, certainly the world would return to normal. So off they went, headed for the last page of the picture book, the castle of Baby Bowser. When they got there, they would reclaim the Super Happy Tree!

Sunny woods, dark caves, and soaring mountains are just a few of the areas that Yoshi and 5 of his (brothers I guess you could call them) search through in their pursut of the Super Happy Tree, which the dreaded Baby Bowser stole. Loosely based on the Super NES classic Yoshi's Island, Yoshi is now back and with more moves on his side, he can walk, run, swim, leap, flutter, and fire eggs with snipper like precision. Besides an array of new attacks, Yoshi has a few buddies that help along the way.

      Miss Warp - Around each stage are 4 Miss Warps who, save your
progress, and if you have awakened some of the other Sleeping Beauty's, warp
you to the following number indicated on each Miss Warp's stomach. (EX
Jumping on 1 will take you to Miss Warp 2, 2 to 3, and 3 to 4.)
      Poochy - Hidden items are this dogs specialty. Whenever you meet up
with him, follow him to where he stops and pound the ground. Try, try again,
if you don't find anything your first pound, Sniff (R Button) around to pin
point the exact location.
      White Shy Guy - A White Shy Guy will bring back a lost yoshi making
this rare guy very valuable.
      Black and White Yoshi's - Deep Underground is where a certain Black
Yoshi is rumored to be hidden, while White Yoshi is somewhere dangerously
High. Both Yoshi's have a tremendous appetiet and can even stomach chili


The adventure all takes place in a storybook, which has questionable graphics, compared to the N64's abilities. The Rumble Pak was still new at the release of this game however it was a key element in the game-play experience, because at parts during the game you'll be able to find things otherwise impossible without it. In addition the game is very responsive. With the lightest touch of the Control Stick Yoshi can unleash his amazing new abilities for everyone to see.
