With so many shooters crowding the marketplace, it’s refreshing to see Minimum take the low-fi route through Steam Early Access.

I have and will continue to have a place in my heart for Nintendo. In fact, my first console was a Super Nintendo. The video game market has changed drastically since the early '90s and it seems like what once was platinum is more so along the lines of silver now. Nintendo has always been...

There haven't been many 2D side scrollers lately but Yoshi's Island DS (or Yoshi's Island 2) help revive the genre. A remake of Super Mario World 2: Yoshi's Island for the SNES, you get four more babies to carry around with you. Instead of just Baby Mario, you get the baby forms of Peach, DK, Wario and Bowser, each with there own special abilities. Peach can ride on certain wind gusts when you open her parasol, Dk can bash threw certain walls and can climb vines, Wario can use his giant magnet to attract coins and Bowser can breathe fire. Unfortunately, you only get Baby Wario and Baby Bowser for a little while. Also, when you get hurt, the babies will float in a bubble until you retrieve them. If you don't, some Kameks will come and take them away. While they're in this bubble, they cry and some of their cries are extremely annoying. Other than babies, Yoshi can turn into certain vechicles like a driller and a helicopter. What is great about being on the DS is that one part of the level is on the bottom screen while the other part is on the top. Instead of just going through a level to beat it, there are many collectibles along the way. There are five flowers, 30 little stars and 20 red coins to collect in each level. Also, there are baby coins that only one baby can collect, depending on the picture on the coin. At the end of the level, a little spinner wil spin and if it lands on a flower, you get to play a minigame. wHat I still love is that for each level in a world, you are a different coloured Yoshi. A bad thing that the developers did was that they didn't use the DS to its full potential, there is no use of the touch screen at all. Still, this a very good game none-the-less.
