Poochy & Yoshi's Woolly World is the latest game featuring these two cute and cuddly characters. Out now on the Nintendo 3DS, the game includes all the stages from Yoshi's Woolly World for Nintendo WiiU as well as a load more content and exclusive Poochy levels. And, being on the Nintendo 3DS, you can now play the game wherever you like. And, of course, you can use your amiibo to unlock new features or play with skills from Mario, Donkey Kong and others.

Just as in the original game, most of Yoshi's world is made of yarn... as are most of the Yoshi's as the nasty villain Kamek has used his magic to turn them to wool. By travelling through the different levels and worlds, Yoshi must set off to rescue his friends. There are hidden doors (revealed by unravelling the wool) and secret areas where Yoshi can be knitted into a different form (such as the umbrella Yoshi below).

We asked our resident gamer J to take a look...

Poochy & Yoshi's Woolly World is like Yoshi's Woolly World but it is a bit different. There is a Yoshi theatre where you watch a short video and answer a question about it to get gems.

In the Yoshi Hut you can choose to play as a different type of Yoshi, or you can create your own Yoshi. There are two things you can do when you create your own Yoshi. You can choose easy mode or professional mode. In easy mode you can choose a craft material or choose a design for Yoshi's whole body. In professional mode you can choose separate colours and patterns for every part of your Yoshi. This is a great, fun new feature.

In the Poochy Hut you can play mini games as Poochy. You have to try to complete missions and collect the Poochy pups. Sometimes when you complete the level you will get a Poochy Gold Dash. This means that all the gems in one game of Poochy Run are gold.

If you play the levels in mellow mode you can choose to use the Poochy pups. You can throw the Poochy pups like yarn balls, but they also help you to attack enemies. They also show you secret areas and bark when there are yarn balls nearby. There are also power badges that you can use. You can choose whether you want to use the Poochy pups and you can switch to this mellow mode during a level.

I enjoy this game lots and I give it 10 out of 10.

Younger brother D adds:
In Poochy & Yoshi's Woolly World, there are adorable Poochy Pups who help you find secrets, hidden areas, and loads of coins. Don't forget to do the Poochy Gold Rush where you try to get as many coins as you can as Poochy.

So, the verdict is that this is a great, fun, and exciting game. We love how the Poochy Pups make an appearance, and help to make levels easier to complete, and enjoyed designing our own Yoshi's. If you enjoyed Yoshi's Woolly World, you will love this. And if you're looking for a fun, entertaining platformer full of cute and cuddly characters, look no further - Poochy & Yoshi's Woolly World on Nintendo 3DS is for you!
