General Commentary and Game Overview
Occasionally, you stumble upon a fangame that really makes you wonder "what in god's name was going through this guy's head when he made this?"

Welcome to Yoshi, Dead and Loving it! Yes, exclamation mark included. I don't know what to feel anymore.

This is going to be brief, it's less of a game and more of an experience, as they say.
Pros Hilarious
High level art
The sheer absurdity of some of the things
Cons Everything else
2 / 10
Where do I start? You're Yoshi, you're going from left to right, occasionally getting Dragon Coins from SMW to boost your life count, avoiding enemies and getting weird masks that do nothing (as far as I can tell).

The game itself is poorly made and nothing to cry home about. HOWEVER, everything surrounding the engine and mechanics is what makes this shine as something truly worth playing, at least for a brief moment. You'll see the likes of Freddy Kruger, Jaws, a Nintendo Gamecube, and other unlikely cameos on your quest to be the best dead Yoshi ever and to enter a house.

Spoiler Alert: you cannot enter the house. The game rejects you from doing so, you're forced to go to the left instead and accept defeat as a *crowd boos you off*. I wish I were joking, but that's seriously how the game ends.

Objectively poor quality, but great for a laugh. The final boss (Boshi, as it were) finally decides enough is enough at the last minute of the battle and whips out Majora's Mask and... it's literally poorly cropped from the box art. That is perfect comedy, right there.

I won't spoil much else about the game's visuals, aside from the fact that they're just awe-inspiring for all the wrong reasons. Amazing stuff.

The music's mostly just your typical MIDI horror garbage you might find on a MIDI site in 2002, but the real crowning sound here is the weird prepubescent wail that Yoshi makes whenever he dies. WHO MADE THIS SOUND? It's so amazing, I wish I could find out. I swear it was in another Mario game about... soccer of all things, if memory serves. I wonder if they were made by the same guy, or better yet: which one came first?

HELL no. Not in a million years. It's hilarious but that's about it. It's not even really a game!
Final Words
2 / 10
Make no mistake: this game is hilarious.

But it's also really, objectively bad.
