Eggy Pop

Eggy Pop is a two-player minigame in Yoshi's New Island. Its name is a pun on the name of the American rock musician Iggy Pop; this is actually the second reference to Pop in the Super Mario franchise, the first being Iggy Koopa. The minigame is a remake of Egg Toss from Yoshi's Island DS. The objective of the minigame is to pop as many balloons as possible within one minute. A Yoshi starts the minigame in a castle-like area with an Egg Plant nearby. Balloons also appear at various intervals, and the player who gets more points at the end is the winner.

The points are given as follows:

  • Blue balloon: 20 points
  • Red balloon: 5 points
  • Yellow balloon: 10 points
  • Coin: 10 points
