Poochy and Yoshi’s Woolly World Review

When Yoshi’s Woolly World came out on Wii U in 2015, its well-hidden collectibles seemed at odds with its often breezy platforming–most of the challenge was in finding its secrets, so opting to forgo them made some stages too basic.

Its compound formula is appealing on paper, but for a while, Ever Oasis falls short of its potential.
