Help Mario run his cookie factory while feeding his pal Yoshi! Match a line of the same cookies horizontally or vertically to ship them off screen; clear away all the cookies to advance to the next level, but don't let the cookie stacks fill the screen!
Clearing 15 of the same kind of cookie makes a Yoshi Cookie appear. Yoshi Cookies act as "wild cards," and will match with any other cookie.
In addition to the standard single player game, VS. Mode allows two players to compete. Clear your screen of cookies first or fill your opponent's screen to win!
Bullet-Proof Software was originally developing a SNES puzzle game with the working title of Hermetica. After a meeting with Nintendo staff, the game was rethemed with Mario characters, and Nintendo gained the rights to develop and publish both NES and Game Boy versions of the game.
