Yoshi Touch & Go makes full use of the Nintendo DS' touch and dual screen features you can even use the in-built microphone to blow clouds off the screen! A suitably hectic multiplayer game for two players is part of the fun too! Yoshi came, he 'saur and he conquered&
Structured in an old arcade game type, where getting 'High Scores' are the main point of playing the games. There are different modes that you can show off your skills (by getting the highest score, going the longest distance, clearing in the shortest time, etc.) One simple mistake will lead you to the Game Over.
The game may sound a bit repetitive and boring, but actually it's not. It's highly addictive, really challenging and fun. Very easy to get the hang of the control but a large amount of time should be invested to master it. Very easy at the beginning(Endless Mode), but becomes incredibly difficult and fast as you progress. Overall, a very well constructed game on a simple creative idea.
I have got most of the great DS games, from Meteos, Super Mario Kart, Advance Wars, Kirby, NIntendogs and Tony Hawk. But the one keeps making me come back to play again is definately Yoshi!
The game itself is very well done and addictive once you get the idea behind it. Don't quit after just getting used to the controls, because that's where fun begins. Otherwise you will end up thinking that it's a Tech Demo. There is a pretty deep game beyond that point, and you will find yourself trying to beat your last score by doing something you've never done before. It's one of those games you keep coming back to from time to time to try do something different.
There isn't really much of a story to this-just help baby mario get back to the stork. This does indeed sound very childish, but i assure you, that the story is not the focus of this game.
Graphically, it is pretty static. It doesn't really show off the full potential of the DS like Mario 64 DS does. But the game is nice and colourful, and there are no real glitches. The environments tend to fairly similar in appearence, but this doesn't spoil the game.
The gameplay is what marks this game as "unique." Using the stylus (the touch screen pen) you can draw a line of clouds to walk over (this can be either over pits, or to get you to a higher position to reach an item. It can also be used to slow you down temporarily to pick off enemies before heading back into the action.) You can throw your eggs, like little bullets at the enemies, or into the air to collect items. Finally, by drawing a bubble around an enemie, you can trap him and drag him into you. This makes the game remarkably interactive.
This gameplay is set between two real modes. One where you play on the back of Yoshi, and two where you have baby mario falling through the sky. There are some extra features such as a time attack mode, where items give you time, and you see how long you can survive. And another where you have to rescue baby luigi from some witch like creatures.
I would definitely say that this game is aimed predominantly at children, but because so much is sometimes required of you, youngsters might get frustrated with it. However, this is still a great game for adults alike, and i would highly recommend to anyone this game.
