Product Description

Oh no! It looks like your granddad was right--things really were better in the old days. At least they were if you liked 2-D platform games, and Yoshi’s Island is indisputably one of the best ever made.

Yoshi’s Island goes back in time to recount the touching story of the various Yoshis' attempts to unite Baby Mario with his parents. You don’t actually control the Italian plumber-to-be but instead his dinosaur pal, who has the curious ability to eat his enemies and then immediately turn them into eggs, which he can then fling at more enemies.

Since Yoshi isn’t particularly fast and can float in midair for a few seconds after making a jump, the whole dynamics of the normal Mario gameplay have changed, but the same incredible attention to detail and endless imagination that mark all of Nintendo’s best efforts are still here in full effect. In fact they’re joined this time, after the rather plain-looking prequel, by some wonderful pastel-shaded graphics that were jaw-dropping when the game was originally released in 1995 and still manage to impress now.

As with the other Super Mario Advance titles, this game also contains a four-player version of the original Mario Bros. arcade game, making it even more of a bargain than it already was. --David Jenkins,

Product Description

One of the most memorable games of all time comes to the Game Boy Advance! In this picture-perfect port of the Super NES classic Super Mario World 2: Yoshi's Island, the unlikely duo of brave Yoshi and baby Mario must together brave the beautiful yet treacherous wilds of Yoshi's Island. Richly varied gameplay, brilliant graphics and precision control perfectly meld in an adventure you won't be able to put down!

5.0 out of 5 stars Another great SNES game brought to Game Boy Advance November 29, 2002
I have been a proud owner of a Super Nintendo for over 10 years now. The first game I ever got was Super Mario World and played it hours on end day after day. Then last year my friend gave me Super Mario World 2: Yoshi's Island for my SNES. I found myself playing through the night. Now thankfully this game has been ported from the Super Nintendo to the Game Boy Advance. Ever since the original Mario game on the NES, the Mario games seem to keep getting better and better.
In Super Mario Advance 3: Yoshi's Island you are Yoshi and you go through the levels with Baby Mario sitting on your back. If you get hit by an enemy then you lose Baby Mario and he starts to cry, but you have 10 seconds to get him back. If the timer runs down to zero, he is kidnapped and you lose a life. As Yoshi you can "eat" the enemies and they become eggs which you can shoot at other enemies and at bonus clouds that hold coins, stars or flowers. Every red coin that you get that is hidden throughout each stage it worth one point to your score. Each star you collect adds one second to your timer. And each flower gives you 10 points. If you collect all 5 flowers in a stage you get an extra life, similar to collecting the Yoshi coins in the first Super Mario World. You can earn up to 100 points for each level (50 for all the flowers, 30 for all the red coins, and 20 for all the stars). If you get 100 points for each level in the game, you can unlock secret levels that are really awesome!
There are many great, challenging stages in this game. In all, there are 48 levels in the whole game, only half as many as Super Mario Advance 2. After you beat each stage you jump into a hoop and a light starts going around the hoop. If it lands on a flower you get to play a bonus game, if not you just advance to the next stage.

5.0 out of 5 stars Mario's back (again) November 6, 2002
Remembering Mario from looong ago on the NES, I thought I was growing quite tired of seeing him on every Nintendo system that's been released. However, I did need a platform game to make the 45 minute train ride into work bearable, so I picked this up as a rental from my local BB chain and returned home, slapping it into my trusty GBA.
Hours (and I mean hours) later, I ran down two sets of rechargeable NiMH batteries on my GBA and looked up at the clock to see it was 2am (lol) and I had been playing it for 5+ hours straight. Be warned this game is very difficult to put down, I have occasionally missed my train stop and had to catch another one going the opposite direction.
Now that, by definition, are the qualifications for a great game. Get it, you won't regret it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Probably the best Mario game January 9, 2005
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I've found this game comparable to Super Mario Bros. 2 for the NES: while the gameplay in the sequel is basically similar to the gameplay in the previous game, there are so many new features, and especially such a different, strange new world, that the second game feels nothing like the first. And, of course, SMB2 and Yoshi's Island are both much better than SMB and Super Mario World, respectively; the latter two games are vastly overrated. SMB was a wonderful herald of a new generation of platform games (Pitfall was the prototype in this genre, so SMB wasn't entirely original, but it was definitely far, far more advanced than Pitfall), but by itself it wasn't a very good game. The graphics were poor, even for the NES, and the game was laughably easy to beat. Super Mario World was also rather easy, and felt like nothing more than a remake of SMB3.

But I digress. Yoshi's Island is an excellent game, far better than any Mario game before it, certainly, though it plays completely differently from its predecessors. I can only express disgust, real, honest-to-goodness disgust, at the reviewers who complain that this game is too difficult; I see now why most new games are so easy to beat and will barely amuse a competent gamer for more than a week. I for one am tired of games that can be beaten in a few hours and Yoshi's Island provides a challenge sorely lacking in games today.

Good game, good challenge, and the GBA version plays very well. Fortunately not dumbed-down for the masses, either.

4.0 out of 5 stars One of the best games ever! September 16, 2002
By A Customer
I remember, back about seven years ago when this game originally came out on SNES, my friend bought it. Every day we would go over to his house after scool and take turns playing levels until we eventually beat the game. The game storyline is basically that baby koopa has taken Luigi hostage, and Yoshi carries Mario around while making his way to Koopa's castle to save Luigi. The game takes a while to beat, so this wont be one of those games where you buy it and then wish you hadn't blown all that money for two days. This has been my favorite of all the Mario games ever made and i give it a 5 star rating for the complete fun you get out of it!

5.0 out of 5 stars Packed With Surprises June 26, 2003
By Rudy
"Yoshi's Island: Super Mario Advance 3" is based on the Super NES game "Super Mario World 2: Yoshi's Island", which was one of the best Super NES games. The GBA version of this game includes not only this game, but also the classic Mario Bros. arcade game, which can be played by up to four players using the link cable.
The story of this game begins when a stork is up to deliver two little baby brothers to their parents. Suddenly, Kamek appears and takes the babies, but one of them, Baby Mario, accidentally falls. Kamek then leaves, taking the baby with him. Baby Mario falls on Yoshi's back. He seems to know where his brother is. Now you, as Yoshi, are responsible to pass through all the levels until you get to the place where Baby Mario's brother is. With Yoshi's abilities of throwing eggs, eating the enemies, and flying in midair, you will need to pass through more than 45 levels in this game. You'll need to be careful, though. If someone or something hits Yoshi, Baby Mario will be stuck in a bubble and start crying.
You'll have hours of fun playing this game. It's packed with fun and surprises. If you manage to collect all the stars, red coins, and flowers in each level, you will unlock secret levels. I reccommed this game to anyone. So, if you don't have it, you should buy it. It is really worth the money.
