(Yoshi no Cookie)
Yoshi no Cookie is a fast-paced puzzle game based upon the massively popular Tetris game. The object of Yoshi Cookie is to align cookies (rows or columns) of the same type and clear off the screen. Unlike other games in the genre, cookies appear from the top and side of the screen, and the player controls a cursor that can slide entire rows and columns of the yummy biscuits. The game comes in three flavors - the Action Mode is a straight on 'time-limit' game where every single cookie must disappear. The Puzzle Mode is about solving puzzle-stages within a limited number of moves and features no less than hundred levels (ten rounds made of ten stages) - A password is kindly offered at the end of each stage so the player can always return where he left off. Finally, the frantic VS Mode gets two players to 'puzzle-fight' head-to-head (or against a computer opponent) and features popular Mario characters such as Princess or Bowser. Each character comes with his own strengths and abilities, and they all balance each other out. Interestingly more characters can be optionally unlocked later in the game.
Released on July 09, 1993 in Japan for 6600 Yen.
