Mob

The enigmatic multiplier. Mob is capable of creating an infinite number of clones of himself, the catch is that each clone is slightly different, so he is constantly having to spend proper time with all his clones whenever their seperate from them, otherwise proper cooperation in emergencies isn't alway reliable. Most of his time in the tower is spent as much with group therapy and glee clubs as is with actual training. He's managed to get up to sixteen, and got his first soprano.


I don't have time for video games anymore: they've lost most of their charm anyway, everything has to be so badass nowadays. I think any animator would appreciate this one though. I came out around the same time Donkey Kong country did, which was considerred the visual tour de force at this time, but now looks dated. Yoshis island on the other hand still looks great today; bold flat design with bold rough outline and painterly color style. It's a testament to how strong artistic design will stick around while technical prowess one-upped in a month. They made a sequel. Unforetunatley it doesn't have the same roughness that made the other one so charming; it's too clean. More comically cute babys though; I thought the original design for infact bowser was hilarious

I love the mobs, very good idea. I love Yoshi's Island!! That game has some of the most beautiful graphics ever, everything is squishy and made of crayon! Ahhh I want to play the new one.

Cute hula girls.

The yoshi's island ds isn't as nice as the original, unforetunately; the lines aren't as bold or rough and the music is as catchy. Also little things in the presentation were missing from the original; like the clever boss battles and the way the show the next yoshi take off from the goal line once the babies been passed on.

The game itself is still a ton of fun, and the baby swap actually makes it a lot more excitingwithout convoluting it.
