Metroid: Samus Returns: The return of the 2D side-scrolling platformer

Owen Hughes runs down the best 2D scrollers...

Yoshi’s Woolly World

Platform: Nintendo Wii U, Nintendo 3DS

Sometimes, you just want to play a lovely platformer where the peril is mild at best. When Rayman Legends is getting you down because of those bloody green gits and their stupid stilt-walking friends, don’t worry. Yoshi has you covered.

The story takes place on a knitted island filled with Yarn Yoshis with levels that are virtually impossible to die in. Spending time in the woolly world is a pleasure. Developed by Good-Feel, the gorgeous aesthetics are a perfect harmoniser and it is highly recommended as a single console co-op game. This is the very embodiment of a cosy comfort game.
