– Three Yoshi variations
– Pink Yoshi: inflated with a GamePad/Wiimote shake
– This can take Mario even higher than the flying suit can
– Pink Yoshis don’t help in horizontal movement
– Large surface area useful for collecting a bunch of airborne coins
– Gold Yoshi: shake the controller to light up the immediate area
– Also stuns nearby enemies
– Gold Yoshis show up in the Fire Snake Caverns
– Blue Yoshi: can shoot bubbles
– Can ride the adult version of Yoshi in numerous levels
– Yoshi can still eat breaks
– Collect five to fill a meter
– This rewards Yoshi’s rider with a power-up
– Camera pans out a bit in co-op
– This helps you see hidden star coins and pipes that you normally wouldn’t come across in single-player
– Boost Mode: Place up to four floating platforms at a time
– Use the GamePad touch screen in Boost Mode to pop friends out of bubbles, stun enemies, make it easier to reach the flagpole, manipulate environmental objects, swat Paratroopas
– Turn on Boost Mode by powering up the GamePad – that’s it
– Players will go through pre-selected packs of levels in Boost Rush Mode
– Collecting coins makes the auto-scroll faster
– Limited amount of lives given at the start of each pack
– Dying doesn’t reset the clock

About The Author
Jeremy Hardin
Jeremy's love of gaming, especially Nintendo started in the late 80's when his parents bought him and his older brother an NES. Many hours were spent playing Mario and Duck Hunt. Eventually Jeremy graduated to bigger and better games and systems, like the SNES, GC, Wii, 3DS, and finally to the Wii U. Ask him what the defining moment of his childhood gaming was and he'll answer, "the day I beat Zelda 2." To this day that game holds a special place in his heart. His favorite types of games are platformers. Jeremy started blogging for NintendoFuse in October 2010. He started off as a lurker on the forums who won a free copy of And Yet It Moves on WiiWare. From there he realized he liked the forums and the site and wanted to remain a part of it. He was brought on board shortly thereafter and has helped post news and reviews for the past couple of years. Currently Jeremy has taken a step back to focus on family and school. He assists in minor back-end site maintenance from time to time.
