Super Mario Advance 3 – Yoshi’s Island

Play Super Mario Advance 3 – Yoshi’s Island for Gameboy Advance GBA Online Emulator

Yoshi’s Island is up there with the best of the best when it comes to Mario style platformers. It has beautiful graphics sprite graphics, great sound effects, simple yet effect controls, and crisp, fluid gameplay. With the possible exception of Super Mario World, it is my favorite Mario platformer.

While the story is not really the focus of the game, it is there and is different than most mario games. You play as yoshi who is minding his own business when a baby gets dropped on his back. As it turns out this is mario and he’s been separated from his brother Luigi and you need to go on an adventure to reunite them.

Your main attack is eating/squashing enemies but you also can throw eggs. Gameplay never gets stale and while it starts easy, some levels can be pretty damn challenging.

A special note about the music. Its catchy and atmospheric and keep in mind that is an old 2D sprite game. The music is pretty lo-fi but its so well written that you dont even notice. It has seriously some of the best music in any nintendo game. Once again, not a statement said lightly as nintendo games have arguably the best music in any video games.

All in all, I highly reccomend this game. I say, if you’ve never played it, and you like this kind of game, buy it before it becomes impossible to find!
