Yoshi Topsy-Turvy (released as Yoshi's Universal Gravitation in Europe, Australia, and Japan) is a title for the Game Boy Advance developed by Artoon and published by Nintendo. It takes place in the present, unlike many other games in the Yoshi series. It was released on 2004 in Japan, and a year later in the United States. This was one of only a few Nintendo games to feature gyroscopic controls built into cartridges, some others being WarioWare: Twisted! and Kirby Tilt 'n' Tumble.

Story[edit]

Bowser and his armies were attacking Yoshi Island, causing chaos and disorder to the inhabitants. In response to this, a spirit named Hongo attempts to seal Bowser and his minions in his book named Forbidden Pop-Up Book to stop Bowser's destruction, but Hongo fails and accidentally seals the entire island in the book. Yoshi starts panicking, but a spirit named Spirit Who Loves Surprises explains to Yoshi that he must talk with Hongo and convince him to bring Yoshi Island back to normal, because spirits don't have enough power to defeat Bowser, who was hiding in a cave at the final chapter of the book, The Tale of Bowser's Cave. He also says that he was fired because he didn't know how to keep secrets. Yoshi gets mad, and as proof of his apology, the Spirit Who Loves Surprises gives to Yoshi the power to tilt the entire world and explains how to use it, but Yoshi accidentally hits the spirit with a boulder. Yoshi manages to convince Hongo to restore Yoshi Island under the conditions that Yoshi must defeat Bowser, because if he restore Yoshi Island with Bowser, he will attack Yoshi Island again. Now Yoshi must satisfy each one of the Yoshi Island Spirits. By doing this, he will receive Happiness Medals and the spirits will allow him to battle with Bowser.

Yoshi finds the Spirit of Cuteness, which explains to Yoshi that Bowser attacked Eggland and transformed every Eggling into apples. When Yoshi swallows an apple, it is revealed that the apple is really a Eggling. After completing four chapters and satisfying some spirits, Yoshi must complete a level where a Fake Bowser tries to attack him; it turns out that the Bowser is actually being controlled by the Spirit Who Loves Surprises. Yoshi gets mad, but the Spirit Who Love Surprises apologizes for frightening him and says that he was just testing him to see if he is ready to battle with the real Bowser. After completing this level, Yoshi must complete two more chapters. When Yoshi has satisfied every spirit of Yoshi Island, he can battle with Bowser.

After completing the spirits' missions, rescuing the Egglings, and defeating Bowser, the spirits celebrate Yoshi's victory, and Hongo is very grateful for Yoshi's heroism. He makes a meal for Yoshi, but Yoshi still isn't happy. He then uses his magic to bring Yoshi's Island back to normal and Yoshi back to its original state. Yoshi eats the meal with the Egglings, who will never forget Yoshi's deeds. In the end, the Spirit Who Loves Surprises returns to work with Hongo.

Gameplay[edit]

An in-game screenshot where tilting is used.

This is the first Mario and Yoshi game in which gravity plays an important role. By tilting the Game Boy Advance left or right, the game world tilts accordingly. There are only three levels of tilt: normal, left, and right. Fine-tuning of the level of tilt was not present. When the world is tilted, Yoshi can walk on walls, and many items such as Chime Balls and enemies like Spikeballs roll downhill. The player can also make some objects go upside-down by continually changing the tilt direction.

To go to the next area, Yoshi must touch a ring made of stars. If Yoshi touches one, he cannot go back to the previous area because there is no ring to take him there. At the end of the level, Yoshi must touch a large star to win a Happiness Medal and go to the next level. Some areas require Yoshi to transform into a different form to collect items and reach the end of the level.

Depending on what level of the game players are at, the spirit who give the mission and the requirements for finishing the level change. Every level has a task given by one or two spirits, to increase the difficulty.

The game features a Bonus Games mode, in which Shuffle Mode, Shuffle Mode EX, and other minigames can be played, as well as an Eggling Book. At the end of every level, there is a Bonus Chance!, which is a chance to play a Bonus Mission!. If Yoshi completes a Bonus Mission!, he wins 50 Coins.

Throughout the game, Yoshi will find twelve different enemies which drain his health meter if he touches them. Yoshi can swallow hearts to restore one point of his health meter; a larger heart completely restores Yoshi's health meter. These enemies play important roles in the game; missions given by the Spirit of Power involve defeating a certain number of enemies, and missions given by the Spirit of Kindness involve not defeating enemies. Unlike in other Yoshi games, Yoshi farts after eating an enemy instead of making eggs.

If Yoshi completes the task given by the spirit, he wins a Happiness Medal. If Yoshi completes the level with a much better score than that required, he wins a Gold Medal.

Chapters[edit]

Modes[edit]

Story Mode[edit]

During Story Mode, Yoshi must travel trough eight chapters. This includes fifty courses, a mid-boss and Bowser at the final chapter. In each chapter, a spirit will set Yoshi a task. Such tasks can include collecting coins, defeating enemies or rescuing trapped Egglings from Apples. Within the courses, Yoshi must avoid twelve different enemies which will drain Yoshi's health meter upon contact. An empty health meter will cause Yoshi to lose a life. He can swallow hearts to restore his health meter. Yoshi will be rewarded with a Happiness Medal at the end of a course if he successfully completes the tasks given by the spirits. Gold Happiness Medals are given if Yoshi completes the task to a very high standard.

Yoshi's Transformations[edit]

Throughout the game, Yoshi may transform into a unique object. These transformations are obligatory to complete certain areas and to collect certain items.

Image Name Description
YTT-Yoshi Sprite.PNG Yoshi Yoshi in his normal form. He can lick up enemies or apples, Flutter Jump, and use gravity to tilt objects around him. He has an eight-point health meter. If Yoshi runs out of HP, he will lose a life.
YTT-Ship Yoshi Sprite.PNG Ship Yoshi Yoshi can float above the water and will continually move forward. The water level can be changed by tilting the console left or right. If Yoshi touches the ground and there's no water where he is, he won't be able to move, but if the water touches him he can move again. Getting held back by an object may cause Yoshi to go off-screen and he will lose a life.
YTT-Balloon Yoshi Sprite.PNG Balloon Yoshi The first transformation encountered. Yoshi will becomes a hot-air balloon and slowly float downward. By tilting the console left or right, he can drift to that corresponding direction. Coins, spikes and other obstacles are usually found on the way down.
YTT-Ball Yoshi Sprite.PNG Ball Yoshi Yoshi becomes an invincible bouncy ball. By tilting the console, Ball Yoshi will bounce and move in that direction. If Yoshi comes into contact with a concrete block, it will crack and ultimately break. Touching an enemy in this form will defeat it.
YTT-Boat Yoshi Sprite.png Boat Yoshi Similar and a little faster than the Ship form, Yoshi turns into a boat. This form has two paddlewheels which turn and allow Yoshi to move. Yoshi can jump using A Button and the player can change the water level by tilting the console to the left and to the right. Obstacles such as Spikeballs and walls are found along the route Yoshi takes. If he is held back by an obstasle, he will lose a life if he goes off the screen. This transformation is only encountered twice at Chapter Six.

Enemies[edit]

Image Name Description
Boo YTT.png Boo Boos only appear in four missions, and will follow Yoshi if he isn't looking at him. If Yoshi is looking at him, he doesn't move and shields his face. A smaller version of these enemies also appear in Chapter Six.
Fat Guy YTT.png Fat Guy Fat Guy is a fat version of Shy Guy. Yoshi can't defeat this enemy. When he jumps on their head he bounces back.
Fly Guy YTT.png Fly Guy Fly Guys are pretty much the same as Shy Guys, except that they have the ability to fly. They fly with the propellers attached to their head. They also appear holding Coins that Yoshi can collect with his tongue.
Goonie YTT.png Goonie Goonie is a bird enemy that can only continually fly forward. It can actually fly in other directions too, upward and downward, but that's only if the console is tilted. If Yoshi jumps on one's head, it doesn't damage them but Yoshi can stand on their heads to reach certain locations.
YTT-Gusty Sprite.png Gusty Gustys are ghosts that continually fly forward, just like Goonies do. They usually appear in groups.
YTT-Mace Guy Sprite.png Mace Guy Mace Guy is a Shy Guy with a mace and he continually spins. He only appear in seven missions, six of them in Chapter Six and one in Chapter Five.
YTT-Piranha Plant Sprite.png Piranha Plant In Yoshi Topsy-Turvy, Piranha Plants cannot be defeated by Yoshi and lack the ability to move. If Yoshi goes into one of them, it holds him in it's mouth for about three seconds and then spits him out.
Raven YTT.png Raven Ravens are black birds. They can walk on walls and aren't affected by gravity.
Shy Guy YTT.png Shy Guy Shy Guys simply walk forward, as they normally do in most of their appearances. They can be defeated by being jumped on or consumed by Yoshi.
YTT Spikeball.png Spikeball Spikeballs are round, spike-covered enemies that are always sleeping, but wake up if the player tilts the console. When the console is tilted, the enemy rolls to the left or the right, and if the console isn't tilted he falls asleep again. Spikeballs are actually used as weapons to defeat enemies that Yoshi can't bring down on his own, such as Tap-Tap.
Tap-Tap YTT.png Tap-Tap Tap-Taps are spike-covered enemies that cannot be defeated by Yoshi. Just like Shy Guy's, Tap-Tap's simply walk forward and take away most of Yoshi's power if they touch him.
YTT-Rainbow Tap-Tap Sprite.png Rainbow Tap-Tap Similar to Tap-Taps, but appears to be more colorful. This enemy only appears during the battle against Bowser. During the second phase, whenever Bowser gets hit by a Bomb, he will slam against the ground. This causes several rainbow-colored Tap-Tap's to fall from above. These Tap-Taps will roll along the ground, moving whichever way the player is tilting. They will cause Yoshi harm if he comes into contact with them.
YTT-Unnamed Spike Creature.png Spike Creature This unnamed enemy only appears four times in the game during Chapter Six. He seems to be a purple enemy with a black eye, thin legs, a large purple nose, and a green torso.

Items[edit]

Image Name Description
YTT Coin.png Coin Coins are scattered throughout the courses. They are a lot more common during the Spirit of Greed missions. Collecting 100 will give Yoshi an Extra Life.
YTT-Bomb Sprite.png Bomb Bombs are often seen attached to parachutes, floating down from an upper part of a course. Tilting the console will affect the direction that the Bomb is falling. Once it hits the ground, it will explode and can defeat enemies and harm Yoshi. During the battle against Bowser, several Bombs without parachutes will fall to the ground during the first phase of the battle. These will roll along the ground in accordance to the tilt. They flash red after a few seconds, and will explode shortly afterwards.
YTT-Heart Sprite.png Heart Hearts are common items. If Yoshi eats one, he will restore one point to the Health Meter.
YTT-Big Heart Sprite.png Big Heart Big Hearts are much less common than ordinary Hearts. Eating one will fully replenish Yoshi's Health Meter.
YTT Apple.png Apple Apples are Egglings cursed by Bowser. If Yoshi swallow one, he rescue the Eggling from Bowser's curse. These apples are very important at mission given by Spirit of Cuteness.
YTT-Gold Happiness Medal Sprite.png Gold Medal Gold Medals are given to Yoshi if he gets does a better job than the required by the Spirits. An example of this, if he swallow more apples than the required by the Spirit of Cuteness, he wins a Gold Medal.
YTT-Silver Happiness Medal Sprite.png Silver Medal Silver Medals are given to Yoshi if he does a job near the required by the Sprits. An example of this, if he swallow a amount of apples approximate to the required by the Spirit of Cuteness, he wins a Silver Medal.

Objects[edit]

Image Name Description
YTT-Bolder Sprite.png Boulder An object which Yoshi is able to move by tilting. Bolders usually appear in places where spikes are found. Yoshi is able to ride atop a Bolder to safely cross the spikes. On other occasions, a Bolder may appear near a line of enemies. Yoshi is able to guide the Bolder and send it rolling into the enemies, thus defeating them.
YTT-Cannon Sprite.png Cannon Cannons can be found throughout miscellaneous courses. Yoshi can use them as a method of traveling from one place to another. Tilting the console will affect the direction the cannon tilts. Yoshi can enter in one by jumping at its top. The cannon fires automatically after a few seconds.
YTT-Chime Ball Sprite.png Chime Ball Chime Ball's function the same as the boulder, but when it rolls over a Chime Note, a Note appears.
YTT-Chime Note Sprite.PNG Chime Note When a Chime Ball rolls over a Chime Note, the Chime note produces a Note.
YTT-Coin Basket Sprite.png Coin Basket A green basket with five coins. These coins can be collected by tilting the console left and right repeatedly, making the basket go upside down.
YTT-Coin Farmer Sprite.png Coin Farmer When the player tilts the console, the Coin Farmer spills coins all over the place, allowing Yoshi to collect them.
YTT-Ferris Wheel Sprite.png Ferris Wheel
YTT-Green Lift Sprite.png YTT-Old Lift Sprite.png Lift
YTT-Note Sprite.png Note A Note appears when a Chime Ball roll over a Chime Note. Yoshi can use them as platforms. They slowly rise, but if Yoshi is standing in the note, it won't move.

Reception[edit]

Yoshi's Topsy-Turvy received mixed reviews. As of August 8, 2006, the game’s overall review score was 6.2/10 based on GameRankings collection of reviews.

IGN’s Craig Harris noted that the use of the star rings to travel through areas made the game seem rigid as some areas only lasted for seconds. He said that the characters were irritating, the storyline was stupid and the gameplay barely resembled other Yoshi games. They also caused the reviewer frustration when used in ways that made it seem like the developers were making sure players learned to pay attention. He also said that this game is the worst game that Nintendo published to the Game Boy Advance, the tilting concept makes everything feel forcefully clumsy, and that the level design is "all over the quality spectrum, from somewhat challenging to ridiculously stupid". He gave the game a 5/10, or "Mediocre".

GameSpot’s Justin Calvert stated that the adventure was fun and clever when it began, but after a while, the graphics, sounds and gameplay mechanics became repetitive. He said that the game is very short, and that he had little reason to keep playing after meeting the bare requirements for beating the game. He also commented that the areas which require transformations to complete are the most enjoyable in the game. He gave the game a 6.6/10.

1UP.com’s Jeremy Parish stated that the game felt like it had been designed around the motion sensor, unlike WarioWare: Twisted! where it felt like the sensor was designed to fit the game. He felt that the game was sub-par, with choppy tilt-sensing technology thrown in. He gave the game a 4/10.
