    A tetris-like Yoshi and Mario game.

    This game is pretty good, especially since it was made in 1991. The graphics are awesome (I played it on my SP and it has color) but the sound is just a repeated track. You can choose from one of 3 repeated tracks, thoug... Read Full Review

What Gamespot Users have to say about Yoshi

    An under-appreciated and under-the-radar puzzler classic.

    To start off, as of May 7, 2004, there has been only one other rating for this game: 2.4. I could not even begin to address how this rating was achieved. While simple, this is a fantastic puzzle game for children and adu... Read Full Review

    A bad Tetris clone

    This is another puzzle game that yet again, clones Tetris. You play as Mario or Luigi who are trying to stack enemies from the previous Mario games onto plates to make them disappear. You can also stack two halves of an ... Read Full Review

    The concept behind Yoshi is solid but the execution is not quite there.

    Yoshi is a falling-blocks puzzle game developed by the creators of Pokemon for the original NES. It works on some levels but certain design decisions seriously limit re-playability. Gameplay is centered around four ki... Read Full Review

    Unless you really liked the original Yoshi game, don't waste your time.

    I have had two different types of Yoshi games over the years. The original and a remake that someone released for the TI-86 Graphing Calculator, they are incredibly close to the same except with some graphical difference... Read Full Review

    Yoshi is what could have been called Mario Tetris.

    This is a very simplistic game, comparable to Tetris in gameplay. There are dropping top and bottom eggshells and dropping creatures that can land on four different spots. The player's job as Yoshi is to switch arou... Read Full Review

    An Amazing and Highly Addicting Action Puzzle Title...

    Yoshi is another falling piece puzzle game in the vein of Tetris and Dr. Mario. While it fails to live up to the ridiculously high standards of Tetris that make it such a timeless classic, it surpasses Dr. Mario on every... Read Full Review

    He got his own game?

    I own this and actually had some fun with it, but let be honest and say that this was neither a complicated game or that compelling. Tetris Attack took the Yoshi profile and made something with it. This one focused o... Read Full Review
