Yoshi's Crafted World.jpeg

Yoshi's Crafted World is a game available for the Nintendo Switch and developed by Good-Feel. It is a platformer with a diorama aesthetic similar to Yoshi's Woolly World. The mechanics of the game offer players the ability to play a level backwards after running through it once, as well as the option to complete bonus objectives for additional rewards.

Gameplay

Yoshi's Crafted World plays somewhat similar to previous Yoshi games. The player controls a Yoshi. This Yoshi can eat enemies to produce eggs and then throw those eggs to defeat enemies and discover secrets. Yoshi also has access to a flutter jump which will keep him in the air for as long as it is continued. The main difference from previous Yoshi games is the 3D environments and the way egg throwing works. In previous entries, the player would aim the trajectory of the egg with the cursor and the egg bounce around. In Crafted World, the player aims with a cursor directly where the player will hit. The game is also built much more around environment puzzles.

Like other Yoshi games, there are many collectibles scattered in the stages. There are two main collectibles being the Red Coins and the Flowers. Red Coins are hidden around the level either with Fly Guys or among the regular coins.

In Crafted World, co-op is improved upon with the Yoshi now able to ride on each other or they can both stand on the ground.

The Yoshi on the back aims the eggs while the Yoshi giving the ride moves around.
