How the game is played


The gameplay of Yoshi's Island DS is much the same as the Super Nintendo Entertainment System game, but with some small add-ons. The player moves Yoshi through many stages. Yoshi has to get through these stages by not getting hit by enemies or losing the baby he is holding.



Yoshi's Island DS received good scores from lots of video game websites, including IGN and GameSpot who gave separate reviews of the game of 8.0 and 9.1.[2][3]
