Beating Yoshi’s Woolly World!

As I mentioned in my Gaming Week in Review (2/05- 2/11) post, Michael and I┬árecently beat Yoshi’s Woolly World for the Wii U! We had left off on World 5-6 the last time we played, and we thought we were almost through with the game.

As we approached the boss, though, we knew that couldn’t be the end of the game. I mean, no way a boss named Snifberg the Unfeeling was the final boss!

He is kinda cute though…

Sure enough, after we beat Snifberg, Kamek appeared and showed us that he had one more trick up his sleeve. After swirling his little wand around, World 6 appeared, and Bowser’s face was stamped right on it! We knew we were getting down to business!

World 6 pulled out all the stops when it came to trying to kill us! This spiderweb level was tricky, but man were those kissing spiders SO CUTE! Seriously. A little heart appears above their heads when they kiss. I’m sure they put that in the game just to distract you so you will fall off of the web and die, but whatever.

Aww!

There were several other tricky levels to overcome on the way to Bowser.

This level in particular was a real pain! You have to hit each colored statue with a specific Shy Guy.

Finally, it was time to face Bowser! If you’ve played Yoshi’s Island, this scene will probably look familiar to you. Bowser is basically a big whiny baby that Kamek is looking after.

He throws a temper tantrum, and the first phase of fighting begins.

After whooping his butt, you think it’s over…

But then Baby Bowser gets absolutely humongous! I actually had a blast playing this part. It was so much fun to lob giant pieces of yarn at him!

After hitting him a few times, that’s it! Bowser goes back to being a little crybaby, and the game is over.

Of course, there is a bunch of replay value for this game. Collecting all the hidden yarns in each level will unlock more Yarn Yoshis, and collected EVERYTHING in every level will open up additional (way harder) levels in each world.

Overall, my husband and I loved this game! It was adorable, every level was so well crafted and the characters never looked better! The game held just the right amount of platforming challenge. This is a game I could play through multiple times and still really enjoy!
