Yoshi’s Crafted World is a charming, whimsical video game available for the Nintendo Switch. The player, as Yoshi the dinosaur, moves through a world made up entirely of craft supplies, such as popsicle sticks, pipe cleaners, milk cartons, and cereal boxes. The gameplay is pretty straightforward—Yoshi must jump from platform to platform, all the while collecting various objects, throwing eggs, and eating his enemies.
This game is beginner-friendly as well as kid-friendly, and is a great choice for anyone who is looking for a calm, relaxing video game experience. The co-op mode makes it fun and easy for two people to play together, and works well even if the two players have very different levels of gaming ability. But the real star of this game is the scenery. The game designers clearly went to a lot of effort to make each object look like a child’s art project, and the results are adorable.
