Super Mario Advance 3 (Yoshi's Island) is a Platforming game. Platform games task you with getting from point A to point B. The world you journey through is usually based on different levels, and populated with enemies, switches and lifts to be negotiated. As you work through each level you pick up various collectables that accrue score, special abilities and access to hidden areas.

Keen to capitalise on the success of Super Mario Advance 2 (Super Mario World) GBA, and now towards the end of the life of the SNES, Nintendo released Yoshi's Island. This was later brought to the GBA as Super Mario Advance 3.
Yoshi's Island is in many ways a direct follow up to the critically acclaimed Super Mario World. But here, perhaps due to the success of Sega's Sonic the Hedgehog, the focus is more on action and less on exploration. The worlds and levels have more of a linear progression to them, and accordingly the open map of Mario World is replaced with a scroll with a single path to follow.
