You might not remember or even have heard of the original Yoshi, which appeared on the NES and Gameboy. It’s a simple puzzle game featuring enemies from the Mario series.

In the game enemy tiles will fall from the top of the screen in pairs and land in four stacks. By switching the stacks, you can control where the falling pairs land. Getting two of the same enemy in a row on one stack will make them disappear and score you points. It’s a little like Tetris, as the goal is to keep the stacks from getting to the top.

Well, now that it’s on the Wii U eShop, and for a miniscule 30 cents… what do you have to lose on trying it now? Three whole dimes out of your pocket?
