Review: Yoshi’s New Island

Platform: 3DS
Developer: Azrest
Website: www.yoshisnewisland.nintendo.com
Australian classification: G

It’s not hard to immediately dismiss Yoshi’s New Island as a thoughtless kid’s game. The chalk-inspired art style looks like the wall of a nursery, the soundtrack sounds like a toddler’s nightly lullaby and the introductory cut-scene starts out by telling you babies come from storks. The short journey does contain some of the more alluring platforming elements from the 1995 original, but you’re probably better off just pulling out the SNES and playing that one over again instead.
