Written by peach freak or peachfreak90@hotmail.com Version 5.50 Welcome to the official FAQ of Yoshi/Peach Coins Hunting! That's what this FAQ is all about, and I hope this will help you. Good luck hunting! If you have any questions or help on a specific coin, email me at peachfreak90@hotmail.com or IM me at sonicdoommario on AIM (closed list, email me if you want to be on it). If you have a question, I will add an Asked Questions list. A note about emailing me: DON'T EMAIL ME FOR HELP ON THE FOREST OF ILLUSIONS 3 AND 4! Most of these questions have been asking for help on those 2 levels, and I have posted the question on this FAQ. Also, sometimes this game's message board asks this question frequently too. This also applies for the Chocolate Island 3 problem too, so don't ask me about that either. Table of Contents 1. Revision History 2. Asked Questions 3. About These Coins 4. Coin Walkthrough 5.

Asked Questions =================== Questions: I'm stuck in the Forest of Illusion with the circle that has no dot on it. 2 levels keep taking me to that thing, leading to Forest of Illusion 2 and the Forest Ghost House. How do I get past this? In Forest of Illusion 4, just after the half way mark, there is a blue pipe in the air. Do whatever you can to get in the pipe, and then once you get on top of it, enter it. The key is right there, and just stick it in the keyhole. In Forest of Illusion 3, there is a green pipe and a yellow pipe at the end. Make sure that you are at least Big Mario/Luigi first, and enter the green pipe. Spin dash on the blocks inside to get to the key, and from there, take the key and put it in the keyhole. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Questions: I have three questions to ask you. First where are all the switch plates? And second I'm stuck on Chocolate Island 3 and I can't get out so what do you have to do? And finally is there any hints that I should know about? Thank you for your time. Answers: 1. On Chocolate Island 3, instead of hitting the exit goal you see, get on the lower platform and fly past the goal. As long as you are in the air, you should be above another platform. Hit the three blocks and collect the 1- UPs, and then hit the exit goal. 2. Yellow Switch Palace: Beat Yoshi's Island 1, and the new path will take you up to it. Green Switch Palace: Go to Donut Plains 2. In the area with all of the pipes hanging from the ceiling, enter the smaller green pipe on the ceiling. You should be in a new room. Go to the right and you will find 3 blocks above a Koopa Shell. Spin Jump to destroy the blocks, and be careful you don't hit the shell. Grab the shell, get back out, go left where the blocks are forming stairs, and then kick the shell to hit the highest block. When you hit it, a vine will head north from the block. Climb the staircase of blocks, climb the vine, and at the top, shove the key in the hole. Red Switch Palace: In Vanilla Dome 2, after the room where the brown blocks are forming a roof, jump onto the block out of the water. Instead of going right, he left, and we will see the brown blocks we just saw. There's a P-switch there. Grab the P-switch, move it to the left off the blocks. Hit it, jump across the first gap, and then drop yourself in the second one, where there's dry land and water. Grab the key which is on the land, and then take it down to the keyhole in the water, avoiding enemies. Blue Switch Palace: In Forest of Illusion 2, before the exit, go left and stay at the bottom. When you do find this, you should see a Yellow "!" block. Hit it and grab the Mushroom if you need to, and then head left. Grab the key, go left some more and shove it in the keyhole. 3. There aren't too many secrets in the game. Check the pipes, finish all 96 exits, and beat all levels with the 5 Yoshi Coins from them. Hope this helps! ------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Question: I have a question for Mario advance 2. You know how when you get to Star Road after you win the first game there what do you do because there is nowhere to go after that? Answer: You mean Star World 1? If so, once you start the level, drop down to the Yellow Bricks below you, and down here, go all the way right until you get to a wall. From here, Spin Jump, keep going down, and you'll eventually get to the Key and the Keyhole. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Question: I am stuck at the front door of Bowser's castle. How do you defeat him? Answer: For the Front Door: At the start, there are four doors to take. Take door #2, it's the easiest room out of all. Climb onto the age and go all the way right, dodging all of the flames and enemies until you get to a door. Once you get to a door, enter it. In here there are doors labeled 5-8. Enter the last door, it is the easiest. In this room is a green "!" block with a feather and all there is are platforms and Chargin' Chucks. Get past of them and enter the door at the end of the room. Now, you will be in this room if you took the Back Door. Hit the red "?" block and use the light to get through the rooms, dodging all of the Mecha Koopas and getting past gaps. Enter the big door at the end. To defeat Bowser: As you see during the battle, Bowser will throw 2 Mecha Koopas at you. Stomp on one of them, pick it up, and kick it in the air, and hopefully it will hit Bowser's head. Do this 5 more times to win. Hope this helps! ------------------------------------------------------------------------------- ==================== 3. About These Coins ==================== Yoshi coins are found in the original Super Mario World game (SNES), and now they are in this remake. In the previous version, most levels didn't have any coins at all. There are at least 5 Yoshi Coins in each level in this game, and collecting 5 will give you a 1-up. If you happen to collect a sixth one, or possibly a seventh, you still get credit for earning a 1-up. Once you collect 5 from each level, and then when you clear the level where you needed no more coins, a scene will happen, and the optional-to-grab Peach Coins will appear in their positions. Like I said earlier, happy hunting! ==================== 4.
