Welcome to episode ten of Retrograde! This week for Retrograde the team mix up an omelet using a dash of love, a pinch of smile, and a half-dozen trapped suffocating enemies in eggs as we play Super Mario World 2: Yoshi’s Island.

Join me, Jack Marshall, and my co-hosts James McFadyenLysanne Fisher and Anthony Hobday as we float on air for the Super Nintendo classic Yoshi’s Island.

In the show we discuss our recent trip to the Eurogamer Expo in London before sliding in and chatting about the amazing game that is Super Mario World 2: Yoshi’s Island, or – if you’re Lysanne – the terrible rip-off that is Yoshi’s Island.

So; swallow an enemy, lay an egg, then hurl that egg into space… whilst listening to the Retrograde team’s latest podcast episode.
