Gobble 'em up and spit 'em out to reach new heights or take out craftwork creepers like paratroopas, piranha plants and shy guys! It's time to get crafty.

Yoshi has never been more adorable than as a toy knit from yarn. His entire environment is made from materials like felt, yarn, cloth and cotton, creating a gorgeous HD world that looks good enough to touch. Instead of eggs, Yoshi tosses yarn balls at enemies. He can incapacitate a Piranha Plant by muzzling it with a piece of coloured string. Or he can even use the yarn to knit together background elements.
A new set of Yoshi amiibo figures, made out of a knitted material, will launch alongside Yoshi’s Woolly World. Among other uses, tapping one of these yarn amiibo to the Wii U GamePad while playing Yoshi’s Woolly World will make another Yoshi appear, allowing players to control Double Yoshi. The Yarn Yoshi amiibo will be available in three colours: green, pink and light blue.
Yoshi's Woolly World is a spiritual successor to well know SNES classic. just like in the original game offers interesting and unique art-style, this time whole world is made out of yarn. This offers very interesting possibilities as you can modify the environment. The only downside is the difficulty level as this game is clearly meant for younger players. Nevertheless, it's very entertaining.
So after great reception of Kirby Epic Yarn, we finally got a sequel, which is about Yoshi. For 3DS, there are no doubts that graphics are really, really good and pretty and art direction is great. Everything in this game really looks like wool. In this regard it's perfect 10/10. However, this game doesn't do it for me. It is good and all, but the music feels lifeless and boring, because of great lack of upbeat tunes like in Mario games. Stages are pretty big and easy, but as further the game goes it gets more challenging, so at least it is not as offensively easy as Kirby Epic Yarn, which was far from epic in that regard. Also, there is nice change of pace with Yoshi turning into different vehicles. If you liked Yoshi's Island, then there is no reason NOT to get this game, you will love every second of it, because it is fixed version of it, WITHOUT the baby, which was major flaw of it. If you're not a fan of YI, you should still try it, because it is nice little game with great graphics and not that bad platforming.
