[REVIEW] Yoshi's Woolly World (Wii U)

Yoshi's Woolly World
Played on: Wii U
Genre: 2D platformer
Developer: Good-Feel
Publisher: Nintendo

The original Yoshi-based adventure game, Super Mario World 2: Yoshi's Island, was an excellent late surprise in the SNES library. Released as Nintendo's focus was already shifting to the Nintendo 64, it was a breath of fresh air with its highly innovative platforming mechanics and fresh pencil-like art style. Yoshi's Woolly World takes that game's legacy and runs with it, and while it doesn't offer a lot of innovation this time around, it's the kind of sequel fans of the original game would undoubtedly sign for.
