Super Mario World 2 - Yoshi's Island (USA) ROM

Game Description & Reviews:
With the astounding success of Super Mario World, a Super Mario World 2 was invetible. However, not many people were expecting this. Yoshi's Island stars, of course, Yoshi - the lovable and popular riding dinosaur from SMW. Baby Mario and Baby Luigi have been separated, and the Yoshis have taken it upon themselves to reuinte the twins. Little do they know, Baby Bowser and his lackeys have nasty plans in store for the plumbers and their dino friends.
The game certainly plays differently than the previous game. It's Yoshi's job to protect Mario. Instead of dying or losing health when hit by enemies, Baby Mario simply flies off Yoshi's back in a bubble and a countdown begins. If Yoshi doesn't get Mario back before the countdown ends, Bowser's minions kidnap poor Mario. The gameplay is so unique and varied. There's the typical running and jumping you'd expect in a Mario game, but you can also "shoot" eggs as projectiles to hit enemies or activate switches. Many of the game's puzzles rely on skilled egg tossing. There are also plenty of secrets to be found in every level.
The levels are varied, and the bosses in each world are inventive and unique. The game has an especially charming atmosphere. The graphics look hand-drawn in crayon, and the soundtrack is bubbly and very catchy. It's pretty much a perfect game, so everyone should experience Yoshi's Island.
Out of all the snes games I have played, this is one of the few that really impressed me along with Super Mario Bros 3, Super Mario World, Donkey Kong Country Series, A Link to the Past, and Super Mario RPG. This game features the Yoshi's as you try to return Baby Mario back to his brother and defeat Kamek. Just about everything about this game is fantastic. The gameplay is very praiseworthy giving you all of Yoshi's abilities such as the tongue, ground pound, flutter jump, and egg throwing and making. The content is also amazing giving you eight levels and eight worlds leaving for a lot of gameplay. Each level is so well made, you can tell a lot of effort went into them. The music is also nothing short of amazing. The catchy tunes are perfect to go along with the great levels. Overall, a great game and I suggest you play it now.
Mario is a baby. he must ride on Yoshi to save his brother from baby Bowser. Eat enemy's to make them into eggs, then throw them at other bad guys, or you could just jump on them. This game is very challenging despite its simple game play. It also has some really fun bosses.
This game is the sequel to Super Mario World, but there aren't very many similarities to gameplay as you would assume.
You play as Yoshi, and it's your job to get Baby Mario back to his home. Baby Mario rides on your back through these levels, and if he falls off you only have a certain amount of seconds to retrieve him. There are several worlds and courses, similar to those in Super Mario World only the layout is immensely different as well as all of the courses. Each course is SO different, I haven't found any that are similar to the original Super Mario World. In a way this was cool, as it was an all new game, not derived from another. But on the other hand, it would've been nice to see Super Mario World truly continued, as this felt like a whole new series.
The gameplay is good, but DIFFICULT. Much more difficult than Super Mario World, but yet it was fun, in it's own way.
