Yoshi's Cookie[edit]

In their debut title Yoshi's Cookie, a puzzle game, Yoshi Cookies enter from either the top or side of the screen as Mario, dressed as a baker, pulls a lever. The plot of the game, in a fashion similar to Tetris or Dr. Mario, is to clear them out as Mario continues to fill the screen with more cookies. This done by pressing the A button and shifting an entire row of cookies. Once a row is, either horizontally or vertically, filled with the same kind of cookie, it is cleared from the screen. The Yoshi-shaped cookie acted like any kind of cookie.
