Console: Gameboy Advance
Ported from the SNES, Yoshi’s Island: Super Mario Advance 3 brought the absolutely gorgeous platforming adventure starring multi-colored Yoshis and one crying Baby Mario to a handheld. Amazingly, the game’s hand-drawn look carried over well to the GBA’s small screen. It played like a charm, too. In terms of SNES era platformers, Yoshi’s Island was one of the most complex in terms of design, with multi-part levels and secrets aplenty. Yoshi’s Island for GBA didn’t miss a beat, and we’re grateful for that.
