Yoshi's Cookie (ヨッシーのクッキー Yosshī no Kukkī) is a puzzle video game made for the NES, Game Boy, SNES, and the Wii Virtual Console.
Yoshi's Cookie is also a backdrop for Puzzle Mode in Tetris DS and a battle stage in Mario Kart: Double Dash!! (named Cookie Land).
There were multiple versions of the game released. Nintendo R&D1 developed the Famicom (NES), and Game Boy versions in 1992. There was also another version developed by BulletProof Software and published by Nintendo in 1994 for the Super NES. The game was released the following year in Europe.
Yoshi's Cookie was also available on the Nintendo GameCube game Nintendo Puzzle Collection, featured along with Dr. Mario and Panel de Pon (aka Tetris Attack, Pokémon Puzzle League or Puzzle League overseas), which was only released in Japan, but was planned to come to the rest of the world at one time.
The Super NES version of Yoshi's Cookie slightly changed Yoshi's appearance compared to his sprites in Super Mario World. The appearance in Cookie features a bigger head and shorter neck. This look was next seen in Super Mario World 2: Yoshi's Island and Yoshi's Story. The SNES version also reused some of the sprites (namely Mario's) and backgrounds from Super Mario World, as well as from Yoshi's Island, which was released after the SNES version of the game. National, a brand of Panasonic, released 500 copies of a special version of Yoshi's Cookie, titled Yoshi's Cookie Kuruppon Oven de Cookie, which celebrated the release of the Kuruppon Oven. The game has an "adventure mode" where the player controls Yoshi on a map. As of October 2010 a copy of the game costs 157,500 yen, approximately $1,924 USD.
The Game & Watch Gallery 3 released for the Game Boy Color in 2003, Yoshi's Cookie gets referenced. For the modern version of Egg, the game was redesigned to a Yoshi's Cookie look.
