Beating Yoshi’s Woolly World!

As I mentioned in my Gaming Week in Review (2/05- 2/11) post, Michael and I recently 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.


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!

  1. Congrats on beating the game and guiding us through your journey with it!

    Woolly World is a really underrated gem. It’s an excellent platformer, and one of the best sidescrollers Nintendo has ever put out.

  2. I’ve been playing through this co-op and I have to say it does a great job of creating a low stress fun experience. My significant other loves the presentation and the “easy” mode. Excited to get to the boss.

  3. Congratulations to you two! It’s such an adorable game! I haven’t collected all of the extra stuff, but I also enjoyed my romp through the cute well-crafted woolly world. The final boss was fun as is usually the case in Yoshi’s games!

  4. Yay!! You finished the Yoshi game!! I almost thought not to read this post just so I wouldn’t have any spoilers when playing it myself.. but hey..!!! I was really curious about what you had to say about it! The kissing spiders.. heeheeehee.. I know I probably will not get back to playing this until around summer time with my boys.. so I cannot wait to play it again!! All the Yoshis are too cute to resist!! Are you going to go back and collect everything now?? I love all the colorful yoshis!!! 🙂

    1. Haha! I tried not to give too many spoilers! I figured talking about fighting Bowser wasn’t really a spoiler since most people probably figured Bowser would be the final boss! I think I’m actually going to play Poochy & Yoshi’s Woolly World first and see how that is, then do another playthrough and try to collect everything in this game. Some of those yarns are really tricky to grab, but I love all the different Yoshis too! 🙂

      1. Yeah, actually you didn’t really spoil anything! I did assume that Bowser is the last guy to fight! Let me know how Poochy is! He is such a cutie and I wish I owned him! Yoshi games have really tricky parts and I always get frustrated… my kids have to help me a lot in it!! LOL. Sad, I know!! But I cannot resist all the Yoshis!!
