Yoshi takes control over the game
Even the most proficient gamers all around the world must have been once excited for playing the Mario game. It’s almost like their gaming experience started with the Mario. It had been a trendsetter for the side-scrolling platform games. A free download of our Super Mario world 2 rom will take gaming to the next level.
The victory of these games had encouraged many other companies to come up with their very own 2D platform games. Starting from the very first game in the series it kept on evolving with more advanced features. The graphics continued to entertain the fans of Mario games.
When the advanced gaming consoles have been invented, the creators started coming up with versions that are supported in those consoles. The Super Mario world 2 rom is the sequel of the famous Super Mario World.
The sequel name as Super Mario World 2: Yoshi’s Island released in 1995.
This game was developed by Nintendo just like its prequel for the Super Nintendo Entertainment System. In this game, hand-drawn style of graphics was implemented instead of the computer pre-rendered graphics.
This style was initiated by the creator Shigeru Miyamoto. After its first release in Japan, it was released worldwide after two months. The special effects of this game were powered by Super FX2 microchip.
Just like its prequel, this game is an immediate hit. It holds a selling record of over four million copies worldwide. Especially the new design of this game has garnered so many positive reviews encouraging the developers.
Some critics called it as one of the most loved SNES of all time and referred it as a masterpiece. Later, the game was rereleased several versions to support the advanced consoles. Those consoles include the Game Boy Advance, Nintendo 3Ds, and the Wii U virtual console.
The idea of creating a sequel sprouted up on the creator Shigeru Miyamoto’s mind while he was working on the Super Mario World itself. While he came up with the new character Yoshi, he decided to make it the sequel’s hero.
This sequel had been under the development for nearly four years that served well on improving the game’s features by including a lot of magic tricks. They included an extra chip in the game’s cartridge to enable the rotation of the game and also for the other special effects that include changing of the game’s sprites.
This game is enriched in graphics and it can be noted in various scenes like the fall of the drawbridge in one of the scenes.
The plot and gameplay
Just like its prequel, this game also contains a strong and intriguing storyline. Since the previous game had introduced this character Yoshi to support the Mario and Luigi, the Yoshi became the main playable character in this game.
The game progresses as the Yoshi takes the Baby Mario through around 48 challenging levels. He has to handover him to his brother Luigi as he was imprisoned by the villain Kamek. Each level passes with Yoshi solving the challenging puzzles and destroy the enemies coming his way.
Each level consists of a different colored Yoshi. And at the end of each level he will hand over the baby Mario to the other Yoshi. And that Yoshi will take control of Mario from there until the end of the level.
It continues through all the forty-eight levels. Yoshi confronts the enemies by using its tongue to capture them and put them in its mouth. Just like the previous game, it can use the shell to shoot the enemies. In addition to that it could swallow them to turn them into an egg. That egg can be used for an attack at a certain angle that would even bounce off walls to attack the enemies on the other side.
Well, the Yoshi can carry up to six eggs at a time. In this game, Yoshi would also eat watermelons on its way to shoot the seeds at the enemies. The creators have introduced a flutter jump in this game that would enable Yoshi to jump to a long distance by kicking on the mid-air. This jump can also be used for a downward attack on the enemies.
Mission of the Game
The mission of this game is to safely escort the baby Mario to his brother Luigi. And when Yoshi is attacked by an enemy, the baby Mario will fly in the air wrapped in an air bubble. As he slowly floats away on air, a timer will run and if Yoshi fails to recover Mario within the timer stops then he loses a life as Mario is captured by the Koopas.
Initially, the timing to save the baby Mario is ten seconds and the Yoshi could collect stars to increase the timing count on the timer. When Yoshi accidentally falls into the pits or come into contact with sharp spikes or lava, he will lose a life then and there.
And all through the game Yoshi would encounter several obstacles and enemies that increase the difficulty level of the game gradually. As much as the difficulties, there are lots of additional power-ups available in this game just like the Starman.
Super Baby Mario
When Yoshi collects the starman on certain levels, the baby Mario will get transformed into a Super Baby Mario that is undefeatable for some time.
When it happens, the players can take control of that Super Baby Mario and cross the certain distance of the level without difficulty. On certain places that can’t be passed, Yoshi turns into a helicopter or a digger for a short period and cross that area.
In super Mario world 2 rom, each world consists of eight challenging levels. And the players would confront boss villains in every fourth and eighth level of a world. Each level consists of twenty red coins and five flowers. The red coins are hidden throughout the level.
Players try to land on the open flower jumping through the end gate. They do that because they get to play bonus levels. There they would collect extra lives and some bonus items that are used to facilitate the gameplay.
For example, a magnifying glass will help the player to find the location of the red coins that are hidden. Depending on the number of flowers and red coins a player manages to collect throughout the level and the number of stars remaining, their final score is calculated.
If a player completes all the levels in the world with a total score of 100 then additional two levels are unlocked in the world. The character Yoshi gained a massive response among the gamers.
And the Yoshi Island was almost considered as the successor of the Donkey Kong Country game. The fame of Yoshi led to several other games that used Yoshi as the protagonist.
At first, the Nintendo’s ‘Yoshi‘s story’ failed to attract gamers on contrast to the expectations. Then Nintendo came up with several other spinoffs based on Yoshi. But most of the games that followed the Yoshi’s Island somewhat failed to uplift the ability of Yoshi in their games.
For example, Artoon came up with a sequel to the Yoshi’s Island titled Yoshi’s Island 2. The game was based on the same story as the Yoshi’s Island game that the Yoshi has to escort the babies. Here, a lot of baby characters were added that incredibly suppressed the ability of the Yoshi when compared to the babies with special powers.
This game is not a multiplayer like its prequel. Its unique hand-drawn graphics, the intriguing storyline, and the sublime gameplay made it a real masterpiece. Critics have been praising it for years.
Again the real success behind the game was the captivating character, Yoshi. It also holds the record of being the last 2D game designed for the home consoles. It remained so until the creation of New Super Mario Bros. that has been developed fourteen years later for the Wii virtual console.
