There are two difficulty levels. You can switch difficulty at any time (even in the middle of the level). The levels are the same either way. It's just if you change to mellow mode your yoshi can float fly forever which gives you a way to avoid falling to death and sometimes to skip whole parts of a level. My five year old who is not very good with games can slowly go through the level with mellow mode on. My eight year old who played Epic Yarn when he was 4 could have played this well back then too. So it's hard for me to give an exact age. I can definitely say that younger ages will need parent/sibbling help at points even with mellow mode. Mellow mode or not, you can take these levels at your own pace. There is rarely anything that forces you to move (except transformations, which are too quick, but I won't ruin any of them for you).
The graphics are gorgeous. Epic Yarn was really flat compared to this which instead feels like a whole world crouched. Everything is made out of yarn, felt, and cotton balls. Backdrops are obviously hanging fabric, buttons are everywhere, and balls of yarn littler the landscapes. They did a great job of making everything look and animate wonderfully.
Hidden areas make very good use of the crochet theme. Often there is a string tied in a bow. If you grab that string with your tongue, it will unravel a whole crochet item and reveal a hidden area.Read more ›
The game is a great stress release to help lighten up your mood when you're feeling in a rut after some bad gaming with the more darker games(Alien:Isolation,Evil Within ,etc,etc.)either due to online team match ups,boss battles or just having messed up. Like with most Nintendo games yo have co-op if you want to play with a partner or just the single player if you're by yourself but once again you do need at least a pro controller if you're going to have someone play with you. At the end a great new Nintendo game has come out for fans and families to enjoy until the next game which by the way comes out in November(Mario Tennis Wii U) and December(Xenoblade) so until then let the fun and entertainment continue.
The levels are pretty average, mostly taking advantage of the art and design instead of cleverness and creativeness. Most of the levels are similar with one or two things added here and there so it isn't exactly the same. A lot of the good things are only in very few levels and should be implemented more. Most of the game's levels are predominantly a left-to-right style compared to the previous games that had more versatile levels that isn't locked to left-to-right. Me and my fiancee played through two worlds and nothing in the stages stood out to us. We both agreed that the best thing about this game is not the gameplay itself but rather the side content and features.
There are five 'yarn' bundles in each level. If you collect them all in the game, after the game you'll be able to stitch them together to form a new Yoshi that you can use. For example, you can unlock a 'cow' Yoshi that will be black and white with a pink nose! You can then slowly collect these 'skins' that you can use whenever you want.Read more ›
