Forgotten Videogames: Yoshi’s Safari

Pushing the console to the limits of its graphical abilities, this offbeat shooting game made exclusive use of Nintendo’s super scope light gun peripheral, and was played entirely from Mario’s first-person perspective. Saddling up for adventure, players hopped aboard Mario’s dino pal Yoshi on a quest to save the royal family of Jewelry Land from King Koopa and his Koopalings. Not only having to blast everything in sight, Yoshi’s Safari featured numerous platforming elements. These included having to jump to avoid obstacles, and the ability to select from branching paths. In this video, http://www.Watchmojo.com takes a look back at the most fascinating and forgotten Mario adventure ever, Yoshi’s Safari.

The Future is BInary  – Some games are better than you think. Welcome to WatchMojo.com and today we’ll be taking a look at Nintendo’s all-but forgotten on-rails shooter/platformer, “Yoshi Safari” for the Super Nintendo Entertainment System.

Pushing the console to the limits of its graphical abilities, this offbeat shooting game made exclusive use of Nintendo’s super scope light gun peripheral, and was played entirely from Mario’s first-person perspective.

Saddling up for adventure, players hopped aboard Mario’s dino pal Yoshi on a quest to save the royal family of Jewelry Land from King Koopa and his Koopalings.

Not only having to blast everything in sight, ‘Yoshi’s Safari’ featured numerous platforming elements. These included having to jump to avoid obstacles, and the ability to select from branching paths. These would not only change the level’s layout, but lead to encountering different enemies, mini-bosses and prizes.

With Yoshi’s head always visible to the player, players would be cued into the dino’s emotions through face gestures, especially when you accidentally, or intentionally shot him in the back of the head.

What’s interesting is that this is the last title to feature Bowser’s seven children for over a full decade. It is also the only game in which you’ll see King Koopa put on armor equipped with cannons.

Adding to its thrills and replay value, gamers are given a code upon completing the game. This unlocks hard mode, complete with colorful level overhauls and a new story that references the fact that events are repeating.

While not a regular Mario game, this title is a blast and worth playing. From its fast-action twitch gameplay to its hybrid-platforming, it is a unique one of a kind gun-toting Mushroom Kingdom experience.
