Things I Like: Hookbill the Koopa (Yoshi’s Island)

Koopa troopas are perhaps the most famous and most beloved Mario enemies in the whole series. So this was neat to see Kamek use magic to make a monstrous koopa troopa for Yoshi to fight.

The battle is all about your shooting accuracy. After a couple of eggs to the face, Hookbill will start to weaken.

And a good STOMP! And he’s done with. While not my favorite boss in the game, Hookbill was pretty close to the top.
