During a vacation in Dinosaur Land, Princess Toadstool gets kidnapped
and a spell is cast on the inhabitants of the island. When they stumble
upon Yoshi™, a young dinosaur, Mario™ and Luigi™ learn that Bowser™ is
responsible for the terrible misdeeds. Now, Yoshis are trapped in
magical eggs that Bowser has hidden throughout seven castles. Many
hidden paths aid Mario in making his way to Bowser's castle, completing
74 areas, and finding all 96 exits. Discover items, including a feather
that gives Mario a cape that allows him to fly and a flower that lets
him shoot fireballs, in layers upon layers of 2-D scrolling landscapes.
You can even ride Yoshi and swallow your enemies!
