ONM Remembered – Pack-In Week, day 2

“Pelt the Mystery Ball to the right of Miss Warp 1 to expose Surprise Balls that lead you to a Warp Vase.”

from Yoshi’s Story Player’s Guide (pack-in with Official Nintendo Magazine issue 68, May 1998)

Guides! Walkthroughs! Dinky little maps to help players get all the melons because– man, was that really the true challenge behind the game? Having a selective diet? There’s no way in hell those Yoshis are getting constipation, but balance it out, fellas – both your food groups and your game design.

I do love these guys. If there’s one thing Yoshi’s Story was good for, it was delightfully strange enemies that skirt the line between cute, abstract and grotesque.
