A Lot or a Little?
What you will—and won't—find in this game.
Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that this is an innovative Game Boy Advance game because it challenges kids to look at the world inside the game differently. Because they have to tilt the Game Boy in different directions to play, kids will stretch their perceptions of how the world of game operates.
Is It Any Good?
It's rare for a player to make it through a mission the first time, since each challenges kids to think about how to best use the tilt mechanism. Sometimes kids will need Yoshi to jump onto a pendulum and then get it swinging high enough by moving the GBA back and forth, so that Yoshi can leap to reach something. Other times kids will navigate Yoshi's ship by controlling the water with the tilt mechanism.
This is a great GBA title because it requires kids to look at the world differently --literally -- as they tilt Yoshi's world to change its gravity. The missions vary greatly and show off the incredible innovation of the designers as they present numerous ways to use the tilt sensor. If you own a GBA, don't miss this topsy-turvy ride!
Did we miss something on diversity?
Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
