    -VERSION HISTORY-
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------
    This is currently Version 1.4 of the Croco FAQ/Walkthrough for Super Mario
    World 2: Yoshi's Island, Created 8/18/2001.
    
    Version 1.4 - Created 8/18/01
    Since this is the FAQ I probably get the most requests to update, I like to
    humor my readers every once in a while and give them what they want. This
    update includes Levels 4-1, 4-2, and 4-3, as well as some revisions on Extra 3.
    
    Version 1.3 - Created 2/15/01
    Happy New Year! I guess I'm a little late, as I am with this update. Guess I
    wasn't going to finish up World 3 soon :). Anyway, Levels 3-8 and Extra 3 are
    here now, and from now on each of my updates will include 3 levels each (this
    means only nine more updates to go! wooo!).
    
    Version 1.2 - Created 12/21/00
    After two quick updates, I started on some other FAQs, but I've come back to
    this FAQ for another update, due to popular demand and me being such a nice
    guy. Aren't I nice? Yes, I know I am. So, bet you're wondering what's new?
    Three new levels are covered, levels 3-5 to 3-7. Why didn't I finish all of
    World 3 like I usually would? Unfortunately, a leak in a wall soaked my SNES
    and TV and I haven't gotten a chance to play it again since. Fear not, I will
    be able to play it again shortly. I'll try to fill in these last to levels in
    World 3 soon.
    
    Version 1.1 - Created 10/7/00
    OK, so I'm just a tad late on my updating, but don't you worry, it's all worth
    it. I've added levels 3-1 to 3-4 in this update, complete with every item, 1-Up
    and hidden area. Also, several other sections (such as Enemies) have been
    updated, so enjoy looking around.
    
    Version 1.0 - Created 9/30/00
    I've got the first version up today, with Worlds 1-2 covered entirely. Also up
    are Parts 1, 2, and 4, which are complete for the most part. If you need help
    with Worlds 3-6, don't worry, as I plan to update soon.
    
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    UPDATE NOTICE: Today's update includes Levels 4-1, 4-2, and 4-3, as well as
    revisions of Extra 3. Also here are additions to the Enemies and Special
    Objects sections.
    
    NEXT UPDATE: The magic eight ball says "Check Me Later"

         Perhaps one of the best games of the 16-bit era, Super Mario World 2:
    Yoshi's Island is a very unique game. At first appearance, it may seem a tad
    cute, but the challenge and fun involved will please the most experienced
    gamers.
         After Super Mario World came out, gamers were hoping for more Mario World
    games, much like the trilogy on the NES they had loved. However, it had been
    years after the original came out and there was still no sign of a sequel. But
    of course, Nintendo greats Shigeru Miyamoto and Takeshi Tezuka, after several
    false starts, managed to get out a sequel near the end of the SNES's life.
    Gamers were ecstatic about the sequel, yet when they plopped the cartridge into
    the slot they discovered that Yoshi's Island was a very different game indeed.
         Despite the "2" in the title, everything in the game was not anything like
    Super Mario World. Instead, it was a whole new style of play. Along with tricky
    platforming were collectible objects, and if the player wanted to see it all,
    they'd have to collect every last item. Also, the game starred Yoshi, not
    Mario. Although the changes were drastic and this wasn't the Mario World
    everyone thought it would be, the game received praise, and that praise is
    well-founded.

         "Oh no!" I mumbled to myself as I looked at the release date info in front
    of me. Ogre Battle 64 wasn't coming out until October! I had recently thought
    it was coming out in mid-September. Now this large, ominous gap filled my game
    playing schedule as well as my new FAQ Projects. What to do? I had already
    taken a break, so I couldn't take another one. Then, like a bolt of lightning,
    I got the idea to work on another FAQ from the days of yore, which would fill
    up the time before Ogre Battle arrived. But what game? I looked through my
    stash of N64 games. Nah. None of them would do. Then I thought "How about an
    SNES game?" It immediately came to me that a Yoshi's Island FAQ, would be
    great, as it was one, if not the favorite game of mine back in the early
    nineties. "Excellent" I muttered as I began work on the largest Yoshi's Island
    FAQ around.
         Hey, that was pretty good. Sounded like a nice little story. I'm pretty
    talented, aren't I? Yep, I know.
    
    
         - - - - - - - - - - - - STORY/CHARACTERS - - - - - - - - - - - -
    
         The story for Yoshi's Island isn't exactly the best thing one could think
    up, but it sets the stage well for baby Mario and Luigi, as well as giving
    Yoshi the starring role. Here's the story in my own words, followed up by the
    Story from the opening scenes of the game itself.
    
    -CROCO STORY-
    
    Kamek, evil magikoopa and caretaker of the new-born Bowser (successor to the
    throne), had heard of news from afar. A pair of twins had been born... but
    these were no ordinary twins. Kamek foresaw a grave future if he did not
    dispose of them (or at least keep them locked up tight... the story must be
    suitable for all ages, ya know), and they could cause great trouble for Bowser.
    
    We all know these twins as Mario and Luigi, plumbers extroadinaire. We also
    know that they've defeated Bowser countless times, so Kamek is pretty smart.
    
    Anyways, the twins were just being delivered by the stork (hmmm... perhaps this
    story is a little TOO suitable for all ages) as he flew across the night sky.
    Kamek knew this was his only chance. He hopped on his broom, and zoomed out of
    the castle. He had to do it quickly... and quickly he did. A bit too quickly.
    As he raced by, he snatched up one of the babies, but didn't get a firm grip on
    the other. He dropped it, and it plummeted down to the sea below. Kamek did not
    realize this right away.
    
    The baby (Mario), luckily was falling not towards the ocean but Yoshi's Island,
    home to all the Yoshi's. Even luckier, the fall was cushioned by a soft Yoshi
    back. Yoshi, who was taking a walk, was surprised to see the baby, and didn't
    know what to do with it. He decided to take it back to his friends. The other
    Yoshies weren't too sure what to do either, but baby Mario seemed to know. He
    wanted to get his twin (Luigi) back from Kamek's clutches and arrive at his
    home safely. A special bond (and a map) allowed Mario to know where to go. The
    Yoshies decided to pitch in and help take Mario on his adventure - or should we
    say, the Yoshies' adventure.
    
    -GAME STORY-
    
    "A long, long time ago..."
    
    "This is a story about baby Mario and Yoshi.
     A Stork hurries across the dusky, pre-dawn sky.
     In his bill, he supports a pair of twins.
     Suddenly, a shadow appears in a gap between the clouds and races toward
     the stork with blinding speed."
    
    "SCREEEECH!!!"
    "THE BABIES ARE MINE!"
    
    "WOW!!!"
    
    "Snatching only one baby, the creature vanishes into the darkness from
     whence it came.
     The second baby falls undetected towards the open sea..."
    
    "OH NO..."
    
    "Meanwhile, here is Yoshi's Island, home to all Yoshies.
     It's a lovely day, and Yoshi is taking a walk."
    
    "HUH?!?"
    
    "Suddenly, a baby drops onto his back.
     The baby seems to be fine. This is very fortunate!
     Wha-? Something else fell with the baby...
     Let's take a peek...
     It looks like a map. Maybe the Stork was using it?
     But Yoshi can't figure it out.
     Yoshi decides to talk to his friends."
    
    "AAAAAAAAAAKK!!!"
    "Kamek, the evil Magikoopa and kidnapper of the baby quickly dispatches
     his toadies when he realized the other baby was missing."
    
    "Yoshi heads leisurely back to the other Yoshies, unaware of the danger
     at hand.
     Kamek's forces are actively searching the island.
     Will these two children ever be reunited with their parents?"
    
                                    *   *   *
    
    "This paradise is Yoshi's Island, where all the Yoshies live. They are all in
    an uproar over the baby that fell from the sky. Wait! The baby seems to know
    where he wants to go. The bond between the twins informs them where the other
    one is. The Yoshies decide to carry the baby to his destination via a relay
    system. Now begins a new adventure for the Yoshies and baby Mario."
    
    -CHARACTERS-
    -Yoshies: The Yoshies are the inhabitants of Yoshi's Island, and have decided
    to help baby Mario in his quest. The Yoshies come in a variety of colors and
    are all helping out. Yoshi, the main Yoshi, is green.
    -Baby Mario: Baby Mario, after escaping kidnapping from Kamek, fell down to
    Yoshi's Island. All he wants to do is get home, and the Yoshies are willing to
    help him out.
    -Kamek: The evil Magikoopa is the supervisor of Baby Bowser, heir to the
    throne. In order to make his masters life easier, he tried to capture the Mario
    Bros. to prevent future interventions. However, he missed Mario, and now he's
    sending all his forces in order to capture him.
    -Baby Bowser: Actually, Bowser isn't the heir to the throne, he's already King.
    He's a tad young to be destroying mighty empires, so Kamek watches over him
    until he's old enough. However, just because he's young, it doesn't mean King
    Bowser isn't a tough opponent.
    -Baby Luigi: Mario's brother, captured by Kamek.
    -The Stork: He was delivering the Mario Bros., but was captured along with
    Luigi.
    -Mario's Parents: They're eagerly awaiting the arrival of their children, but
    wonder why they haven't come yet.

           - - - - - - - - - - - CONTROLS & PLAY - - - - - - - - - - -
    
       The controls in Yoshi's Island are somewhat similar to most other
    side-scrolling platformers, but Yoshi has a bunch of unique attacks that you
    won't see anywhere else.
    
    ~STANDARD CONTROLS~
    
    D-Pad: The D-Pad will move Yoshi around. Press Left or Right to go in the
    corresponding direction. By pressing and holding Up or Down, you can scroll the
    screen in that direction so you can see things normally out of view. If you
    hold down Left or Right, Yoshi will run.
    
    A Button: Press it once to grab onto one of the eggs that follows you around.
    The cursor will move up and down. When it gets at the desired location, press A
    again to launch an egg. Hold Up to aim an egg straight up. If you press L or R,
    the cursor will stop moving until you press it again. If you wish to cancel a
    throw once the aiming has begun, press Y.
    
    B Button: A tap on the B Button will make Yoshi leap into the air, complete
    with a "boing" sound effect. When in the air, hold B to have Yoshi do the
    Flutter Kick, which will keep him up in the air a little while longer.
    Sometimes he'll gain a boost in elevation, too, but this usually doesn't
    happen. To do the Ground Pound attack, jump into the air, then press Down. With
    this move, Yoshi can smash through dirt or pound down posts.
    
    Y Button: Pressing the Y Button once will activate Yoshi's tongue slurp, which
    is useful for gulping down enemies, grabbing eggs, and sometimes other things.
    
    X Button: No purpose.
    
    L and R Buttons: While aiming in the egg aim mode (press the A Button), press L
    or R to stop the moving cursor. Press it again let it start moving again.
    
    -Alternate Controls-
    You can change the control style on the World Map screen. The button is right
    next to the score button in the bottom row. The change is only small, but can
    help you fire eggs faster.
    
    ~GAMEPLAY~
    
    Stars: While Stars are collectible items needed to get 100%, they also
    represent sort of a life meter Yoshi, or should I say baby Mario has. You start
    out with 10 stars, and can collect more through flowers, clouds, boxes, or
    items. When Yoshi gets hit by an enemy, baby Mario goes flying off his back.
    Each star counts as a second Yoshi has to retrieve baby Mario. If the timer
    reaches 0, Kamek's toadies come and take baby Mario away, resulting in the loss
    of a life. If you rescue baby Mario while the number is in the red zone (0-9),
    the stars will slowly replenish until they get back up to ten. They will not
    replenish above 10. This is a rather ingenious and unique life system.
    
    Coins: Coins, like in other Mario games, are collected. Once Yoshi gets 100,
    he'll get an extra life. That's all they're used for. Some coins are Red Coins
    in disguise. Red Coins look exactly like normal coins (except for a slight
    reddish tone that is very hard to see), but add to your total score at the end
    of the level.
    
    Eggs: Eggs are Yoshi's primary weapon. Yoshi can collect eggs either through
    egg blocks or enemies. To make an egg, eat an enemy, then press down to
    transform it into an egg. Up to six eggs can follow behind Yoshi at a time.
    Yoshi can throw the eggs at super-high speeds to knock out enemies, collect
    coins, or get items (flowers, buckets, etc.). The eggs come in several colors
    as well. A green egg will not give you anything when it hits and enemy/object,
    a yellow egg will give you a coin on contact, a red egg will give you two stars
    on contact, and a flashing egg will yield a Red Coin. By banking eggs off of
    walls, you can upgrade there color to the maximum of red.
    
    Collectible Items: To unlock the bonus games and bonus levels, you much get a
    perfect 100 on every level in that world. To get this high score, you must
    collect 5 Flowers, 20 Red Coins, and 30 Stars and make it to the end of the
    level. Collecting the items is one of the most fun parts of this game.
    
    Bonus Ring: At the end of each level, Yoshi will jump into a bonus ring. The
    ring is made up of stones and flowers. Each flower you collect in the level is
    put onto the ring at the end. Therefore you can have a 0% (no Flowers) to 50%
    (5 Flowers) chance of hitting a flower. If you do, you'll get to play a bonus
    challenge, where prizes can be won.

              - - - - - - - - - - - ENEMIES - - - - - - - - - - -
    
       There are a ton of enemies that Yoshi and Baby Mario will run into on their
    journey. Some are easy, some are tough. Here's the list of all the baddies on
    Yoshi's Island.
    
    -Shy Guy: Difficulty: Easy             Abilities: Walking
              Defeat: Eat, Stomp, Egg      Speed: Slow
      Shy Guys are the basic enemies on Yoshi's Island, sort of like the
      Goomba in Mario Bros. Shy Guys come in an assortment of colors, but
      there's no difference in them. They walk around slowly, and don't do
      much else. Other than taking up space, they're basically just easy
      eating targets. When you shoot an egg at them, they'll start rolling,
      destroying any enemies they come in contact with.
    
    -Singing Flower: Difficulty: Easy             Abilities: Walking
                     Defeat: Eat, Stomp, Egg      Speed: Slow
      Singing Flowers are happy little guys that act much like Shy Guys.
      They sing a song as they walk around, and are a tad more mobile than
      Shy Guys. Still, they don't pose much of a threat and are good targets
      for eating. If you shoot an egg at them, it'll go right through them
      continue on.
    
    -Piranha Plant: Difficulty: Medium Easy   Abilities: Eating
                    Defeat: Egg               Speed: N/A
      Piranha Plants are more formidable foes of the earlier levels. They
      are quite good at hiding themselves, remaining a tiny plant until
      their prey gets near. Then they turn into an enormous, chomping plant
      that'll eat anything that comes in their path. Their biggest weakness
      is that they're immobile. If eaten, Baby Mario will fly away while
      Yoshi is trapped in the Piranha Plant's mouth for a few seconds. Even
      worse, Yoshi will drop all of his eggs, and must pick them up before
      they disappear. They can't be eaten, and the only way to kill them is
      with an egg. If they're in their small form, an egg will pass right
      through them.
    
    -Flying Shy Guy: Difficulty: Easy        Abilities: Flying
                     Defeat: Eat, Egg        Speed: Fast
      Flying Shy Guys have little helicopter blades on their heads, and
      either hover around an area or quickly zoom down, then back up into
      the sky again. Usually, they carry items such as 1-Ups or Stars.
      Because of their blades, you can't stop them. An egg will pass right
      through them.
    
    -Hopping Shy Guy: Difficulty: Easy           Abilities: Hopping
                      Defeat: Eat, Stomp, Egg    Speed: Medium Slow
      Hopping Shy Guys are a little more jubilant than the normal variety.
      Instead of just walking, they down hops (complete with flips) down
      the path. The only pause after each jump, then hop some more, never
      stopping. Other than this, they're exactly like normal Shy Guys.
    
    -Chomp: Difficulty: Medium        Abilities: Ground Smash
            Defeat: N/A               Speed: Medium
      The Chomp is one of the larger enemies you'll encounter. You can spot
      them far off in the background, but as you approach them, they'll leap
      high into the air and come crashing down onto the land, making a
      bottomless pit. Watch for their shadows so you can avoid them.
    
    -Nipper: Difficulty: Medium Easy   Abilities: Hop
             Defeat: Eat, Stomp, Egg   Speed: Medium Slow
      Nippers generally dwell in caverns. As plants, they sprout from seeds,
      but can grow very quickly. The will usually float down from the sky as
      mushroom spores, then when they touch the ground, will turn into their
      normal form. The spores can be eaten (they will not produce an egg) or
      shot, but if stomped, Yoshi will get hurt. Their adult form is easier
      to defeat, as it can be stomped. They will often chase after you, even
      dropping from ledges above. Shoot an egg at them and it'll go right
      through them, and spitting them into other enemies will destroy
      both.
    
    -Lantern Ghoul: Difficulty: Easy          Abilities: Walk
                    Defeat: Eat, Stomp, Egg   Speed: Slow
      Lantern Ghouls inhabit caves and dark areas. They're pretty much the
      Shy Guy of the underground world. They walk around slowly carrying
      lanterns, which will also help you see if the cave is dark.
    
    -Falling Wall: Difficulty: Medium Easy    Abilities: Fall
                   Defeat: N/A                Speed: Medium
      This is really more of a trap than an enemy, but I'll put it in here
      anyway. Falling Walls, found in the castles, look like any normal
      wall. But when you approach, they fall down onto the round, crushing
      whatever's standing there. It's easy to avoid if you keep an eye out
      for it, but if you get crushed, you'll be in for some trouble.
    
    -Spiked Ball & Chain: Difficulty: Medium  Abilities: Spin
                          Defeat: N/A         Speed: Medium
      Another trap, the Spiked Ball and Chain is pushing around a central
      axis by a group of Shy Guys. It moves at a medium pace, and can
      usually be avoided easily, unless you must stand in the spot for a
      while. Some of them come with another Ball & Chain attached to the
      other end of the first.
    
    -Bouncing Burt: Difficulty: Medium        Abilities: Bouncy Jump
                    Defeat: Egg               Speed: Medium
      Bouncing Burts, the smaller cousins of Burt the Bashful, like to
      bounce and jump around a lot. They can jump very high, and prefer
      to travel in pairs (to play leap frog). It's best to take them out
      quickly with an egg, which will upgrade one level on contact.
    
    -Small Lava Flame: Difficulty: Medium Easy    Abilities: Jumping
                       Defeat: Eat                Speed: Medium
      Small Lava Flames live in lava and jump out every once in a while.
      They don't get very high, but they can be a threat if you don't watch
      out for them. If eaten, they serve the same functions as if you had
      eaten a Fire Watermelon.
    
    -Blargg: Difficulty: Medium                    Abilities: Leap
                         Defeat: N/A               Speed: Medium Slow
      OK, if you're wondering where I got the name, I call the Nep-enuts'
      lave-swimming cousin the Lava-enut, and this is a smaller version of
      them... so it makes sense, right? No? Who cares. Who's writing the
      FAQ here? That's what I thought. Anyway, Mini Lave-enuts aren't a big
      threat if you keep moving. They attack those on low bridges of
      platforms over the lava, and will lunge out of the lava trying to hurt
      you.
    
    -Gargantua Blargg: Difficulty: Medium              Abilities: Charge
                       Defeat: N/A (Hurt w/ Egg)       Speed: Medium
      Whoa! This is a big enemy, rivaling the size of the bosses. Like its
      sea-faring cousin, the Nep-enut, these will rise out of the lava to halt
      anyone who is coming through. It will also chase after any
      trespassers if they manage to get by. By throwing an egg at it, it'll
      go back into the lava to hide for a little bit. Be quite and cross the
      lava then.
    
    -Flowerbed Shy Guy: Difficulty: Easy          Abilities: Walk
                        Defeat: Eat, Stomp, Egg   Speed: Slow
      This Shy Guy is exactly like its friends, but it has learned that
      camouflage can help. It'll sit in a Flowerbed, waiting for anyone to
      come running into it. If they don't, it'll get up and walk around with
      its disguise of flowers on. One stomp will rid it of its disguise,
      another will defeat it.
    
    -Stilt Shy Guys: Difficulty: Easy           Abilities: Stilt Walk
                     Defeat: Stomp, Egg         Speed: Slow
      Even these guys are faster than the normal Shy Guys. They walk around
      on stilts, and that's basically it. One stomp will rid them of their
      stilts, though, and they'll just be normal Shy Guys. However, in their
      stilt form, they're a much bigger (or should I say taller) nuisance.
      You can't eat them; a tongue lash will only knock them back (you can
      push them into pits this way). While an egg can defeat them instantly,
      a couple stomps does best.
    
    -Cave Bat: Difficulty: Medium Easy          Abilities: Fly
               Defeat: Eat, Stomp, Egg          Speed: Medium
      Cave Bats live in caves and hang out of the ceilings until someone
      comes around. When someone does, they take off, flying in an up and
      down motion, making it harder to avoid than the normal enemy. If spit
      out, they simply fly away.
    
    -Rolly Bugs: Difficulty: Easy               Abilities: Roll
                 Defeat: Eat                    Speed: Medium
      Rolly Bugs hop around happily, and will turn into little balls when
      you come near. They're completely harmless, and can be used to take
      out other enemies or to grab items with danger.
    
    -Fuzzy: Difficulty: Medium                  Abilities: Dizziness
            Defeat: Eat, Touch, Egg             Speed: Medium Slow
      Fuzzies are the most annoying enemy in the game, and mere contact with
      one makes Yoshi incredibly dizzy (or drunk... or both). This dizziness
      causes the world to sway up and down, and your control over Yoshi is
      difficulty. This makes falling into pits or running into enemies very
      easy, and even when the effects wear off, going back to the normal
      controls with little notice can put you in danger. Take them out from
      a distance with eggs and don't risk it.
    
    -Tap-Tap: Difficulty: Medium Easy           Abilities: Walking
              Defeat: Tap-Tap Contact           Speed: Medium Slow
      Tap-Taps are little, green-nosed spiked balls that walk around with
      a big smile on their face (they know that they're nearly invincible).
      The only way to kill one is to make it bash into another Tap-Tap.
      Fortunately, they usually travel in groups, where eggs and shells can
      easily make them do this. This normal kind of Tap-Tap will walk off
      ledges.
    
    -Red-Nosed Tap-Tap: Difficulty: Medium Easy   Abilities: Walking
                        Defeat: Tap-Tap Contact   Speed: Medium Slow
      Red-Nosed Tap-Taps are just like their friends of the Green-Nosed
      variety, but they are a tad smarter. When they come to the end of a
      ledge, they'll turn around instead of dropping off.
    
    -Mini Milde: Difficulty: Medium Easy        Abilities: Walking
                 Defeat: Stomp, Eat, Egg        Speed: Medium Slow
      Mini Mildes are pink, round enemies that walk around happily. The
      only real difference between them and Shy Guys is that when stomped,
      they create a burst of air that'll shoot anything near it away
      (enemies). You can even stomp more than one at a time! Talk about
      efficient!
    
    -Big Flower: Difficulty: Medium Easy        Abilities: Petal Shot
                 Defeat: N/A                    Speed: Immobile
      Big Flowers are happy, humongous plants that have the strange ability
      of launching their petals into the air. To rid it of the deadly
      petals, pound the ground or eat them. When it comes time to launch
      them, it won't have any.
    
    -Slime: Difficulty: Medium Easy             Abilities: Ceiling Drop
            Defeat: Eat, Stomp, Egg             Speed: Medium
      Slimes live on the ceiling, waiting for an intruder. When one passes
      below it, they drop down in an attempt to take it out. When they're on
      the ground, the move around frantically.
    
    -Bandit: Difficulty: Medium                 Abilities: Mario Snatch
             Defeat: Stomp (x3)                 Speed: Medium Fast
      Bandits are menacing minions of Kamek that will run by Yoshi quickly
      and snatch Baby Mario off his back. If you want Mario, you'll have to
      catch them. It takes three stomps on the head to destroy them, and in
      groups, these guys are real pains. If you shoot them with an egg,
      it'll be upgraded a color on contact.
    
    -Water Spitting Fish: Difficulty: Easy      Abilities: Water Spit
                          Defeat: N/A           Speed: Immobile
      Water Spitting Fish just stay in one place, spitting a high stream of
      water out. This water is like a temporary wall, which is more annoying
      than difficult.
    
    -Bullet Bill: Difficulty: Medium Easy            Abilities: Cannon Shot
                  Defeat: Stomp (Cannon: Ice), Eat   Speed: Medium Fast
      Bullet Bills fire themselves out of cannons to try and stop Yoshi. One
      quick stomp on its head will not only defeat it, but give Yoshi a
      boosted jump. To take out the cannon, use an Ice Watermelon.
    
    -Koopa: Difficulty: Medium Easy             Abilities: Walk
            Defeat: Stomp (x2), Eat, Egg        Speed: Medium Slow
      Koopas return from previous Mario games, and they're pretty much the
      same as they were before. One stomp makes them fly out of their shell.
      The shell can be spit or kicked at rather high speeds, and the Koopa
      can be eaten for eggs.
    
    -Para-Koopa: Difficulty: Medium Easy        Abilities: Fly
                 Defeat: Stomp (x3), Eat, Egg   Speed: Medium
      Para-Koopas are basically Koopas with wings. They fly in an up/down
      pattern. If stomped, they revert to the normal Koopa form, but if
      eaten or shot with an egg, they're the same as a normal Koopa.
    
    -Batter Boy: Difficulty: Medium             Abilities: Hit Eggs
                 Defeat: Stomp (x3)             Speed: Medium Slow
      One of the two different types of Baseball Boys, the Batter is skilled
      at using his bat, and if any eggs come flying at him, he'll
      immediately whack them back where they came from. Getting hit by an
      egg smacked by a Batter Boy will rocket Yoshi backwards, which is
      potentially dangerous.
    
    -Pitcher Boy: Difficulty: Medium            Abilities: Throw Eggs
                  Defeat: Stomp (x3)            Speed: Medium Slow
      Pitcher Boys, one of the two types of Baseball Boys, throw eggs at
      high speeds. Getting Hit by an egg will rocket Yoshi backward. They
      sometimes start out with some eggs at their disposal, sometimes they
      don't. It takes them a while to wind up, giving you time to dodge (or
      position where they throw the egg).
    
    -Cactus Plant: Difficulty: Medium Hard      Abilities: Spit Mini-Cactus
                   Defeat: Freeze               Speed: Immobile
      Cactus Plants are big, green, spiky plants that spit out high-speed
      Mini-Cacti. It takes them a second to aim, so use this time to dodge.
      They can be stunned by eggs or spat enemies, but freezing them will
      get rid of them for good.
    
    -Cave Mouse: Difficulty: Medium Easy        Abilities: Walk, Jump, Steal
                 Defeat: Stomp, Eat, Egg        Speed: Medium Fast
      Cave Mice aren't aggressive and won't attack anybody who comes into
      their cave, but they do enjoy stealing eggs from you. They move rather
      quickly, jumping sometimes.
    
    -Skull Mouse: Difficulty: Medium Easy       Abilities: Hop
                  Defeat: Stomp (x2), Eat, Egg  Speed: Medium Fast
      Skull Mice, much like the Cave Mice, live in caves. This type hops
      around pretty quickly, so time your jumps carefully. It will take one
      stomp to destroy their skull, which will turn them into a Cave Mouse.
    
    -Gusty: Difficulty: Medium                   Abilities: Fly
            Defeat: Stomp, Eat, Egg              Speed: Fast
      Gusty are clear, cloud-shaped enemies that zoom across the screen for
      a second, then disappear. Because of their speed, they do pose a
      threat, but you should have time to react in most cases. They're great
      for stocking up on eggs, as in a Gusty area an endless supply will
      come.
    
    -Nep-enut: Difficulty: Medium              Abilities: Charge
               Defeat: N/A (Hurt w/ Egg)       Speed: Medium
      Nep-enut (the word Neptune with the second syllable spelled backwards)
      is the behemoth of the watery worlds, bearing a striking resemblance
      to the Lava-enuts of the lava worlds. They rise out of the water, and
      charge at any intruders unless shot with an egg, which causes them to
      retreat to the depths once more.
    
    -Boo Buddy: Difficulty: Medium                Abilities: Follow
                Defeat: Egg (when turned around)  Speed: Medium
      Boo Buddies are essentially the ghosts of Yoshi's Island. They are
      quite shy, and when you face them, they cover up their eyes and stop
      moving. When you turn around, they follow you. Keep them away by
      facing them. They're vulnerable when they're faces are revealed, so
      bounce an egg off the wall to get a star from them.
    
    -Boo: Difficulty: Medium                   Abilities: Follow
          Defeat: Egg (when turned around)     Speed: Medium
      Boo are larger versions of Boo Buddies. Nothing more. This makes them
      easier targets.
    
    -Boo Chain: Difficulty: Medium                Abilities: Follow
                Defeat: Egg (When turned around)  Speed: Medium
      Boo Chains are a Boo followed by several Boo Buddies. They all follow
      you as one, and simply take up more space. If you are skilled, one egg
      can take care of them all.
    
    -Ghost Blobs: Difficulty: Medium Easy      Abilities: Scare
                  Defeat: N/A                  Speed: Medium
      Ghost Blobs patrol either the ceiling or floor, and every once in a
      while spring up in a frightened pose. While this pose won't hurt you
      unless you run into the Ghost Blob (you can even stand on top of them
      before they do it and not get hurt), it is something to watch out for.
    
    -Ghost Shy Guy: Difficulty: Easy           Abilities: Hover
                    Defeat: Eat, Stomp, Egg    Speed: Medium Slow
      Ghost Shy Guys are just creepier versions of the standard Shy Guy.
      They float around instead of walk, and aside from being a tad faster,
      there's no difference.
    
    -Fire Chain: Difficulty: Medium Hard       Abilities: Rotate
                 Defeat: N/A                   Speed: Medium Fast
      Fire Chains can be quite a nuisance. There's a smaller version, and a
      double-sided version. It's quite hard to avoid the double sided one,
      making getting by these things a bit of a challenge.
    
    -Balloon Boo: Difficulty: Medium           Abilities: Fly
                  Defeat: Egg (x3)             Speed: Fast
      Balloon Boo are very rare creatures that fly above the ground in
      erratic patterns. If shot three times, they explode and leave a Switch
      that makes coins and/or blocks appear.
    
    -Blindfold Boo: Difficulty: Medium Hard    Abilities: Fly
                    Defeat: N/A                Speed: Medium Fast
      Blindfold Boo are similar too Balloon Boo, but are a bit slower and
      can't be destroyed. Watch out for them. They tend to stay near the
      ground.
    
    -Lakitu: Difficulty: Medium                Abilities: Spike Drop, Fly
             Defeat: Eat, Stomp, Egg           Speed: Very Fast
      Lakitu are returnees from the Mario Bros. games. They fly very quickly
      at the top of the screen, a hurl Spiked Balls at Yoshi at high
      velocity. Simply eat the cloud to get rid of them, or stomp the Lakitu
      and use the cloud as transportation. They almost always will come back
      after a shot period of time.
    
    -Toadie: Difficulty: Easy                  Abilities: Steals Mario
             Defeat: Eat                       Speed: Medium
      Toadies will always grab Baby Mario when the timer reaches 0, but in
      certain areas they'll swoop down and grab him the second he gets
      loose. Don't worry, they won't take him, but just make it harder for
      you to retrieve him. Lick the bubble or eat the Toadie to make them
      go away.
    
    -Catching Cactus: Difficulty: Easy           Abilities: Cactus Catch
                      Defeat: Eat Thrown Cactus  Speed: Immobile
      Catching Cactus look like normal cacti, but they toss a mini-cactus up
      into the air. Eat the mini-cactus to make it slump down (so you can
      get by it). Look what you did. Now it's sad.
    
    -Outline Shy Guy: Difficulty: Medium       Abilities: Chase
                      Defeat: N/A              Speed: Medium
      Outline Shy Guys will chase you when you've transformed into a train
      and are on the tracks in the background. It's usually rather difficult
      to avoid them.
    
    -Cannon: Difficulty: Medium Hard           Abilities: Fire Cannonball
             Defeat: Egg                       Speed: Medium
      Hmm... ever seen a walking Cannon? These special types of cannons walk
      around, momentarily pausing to fire a cannonball, which bounces down
      the path. Shoot these guys with eggs as soon as you see them.
    
    -Gusty Wind: Difficulty: Medium Easy       Abilities: Fly (On Path)
                 Defeat: Stomp, Eat, Egg       Speed: Medium
      Gusty Wind are small, air-bubble creatures that somewhat resemble
      smaller, more round versions of the Gusty. They fly up and down on a
      pre-set path. A quick tongue lash will grab them into your mouth,
      where you can eat them quickly.
    
    -Round Cactus: Difficulty: Medium Easy     Abilities: Drop, Block
                   Defeat: Egg                 Speed: Immobile
      The Round Cactus, a happy little blob with an "O" on its chest, falls
      from the sky at the most inconvenient times, usually blocking the
      path.  To get him out of the way, fire an egg at him. He'll roll away,
      and if it runs into anything, a bunch of coins will pop out.
    
    -Wall Lakitu: Difficulty: Medium           Abilities: Spike Ball Throw
                  Defeat: Stomp, Eat, Egg      Speed: Immobile
      Wall Lakitu are basically immobile variations of their flying cousins.
      They pop out of holes in the background walls, and throw Spiked Balls
      at you. Stomp or eat them before they get a chance to.
    
    -Flashing Shy Guy: Difficulty: Easy         Abilities: Take Off
                       Defeat: Eat, Egg         Speed: Medium
      Flashing Shy Guys look intimidating at first, but they're really
      rather harmless. After standing around for a couple of seconds, they
      fly off into the sky. That's it.
    
    -Missile Shy Guys: Difficulty: Medium      Abilities: Missile Drop
                       Defeat: N/A             Speed: Immobile
      Missile Shy Guys work in large groups. They hang out above the ceiling
      where a missile-maker of some sort supplies them with missiles. They
      pass it along until they reach the spot where Yoshi is, in which case
      they drop it. To startle them and make them drop the missile, pound
      the ground (and you get to see the sad Shy Guy who dropped it :).
    
    -Land Goonies: Difficulty: Medium          Abilities: Run
                   Defeat: Eat, Stomp, Egg     Speed: Fast
      Land Goonies run at high speeds across the land. They resemble their
      flying cousins, just without the wings. Stomp or eat them.
    
    -Bubble Flower: Difficulty: Medium Easy    Abilities: Spit Bubbles
                    Defeat: Eat, Egg, Stomp    Speed: Slow
      Bubble Flowers resemble their Singing friends, but these have
      specialized in spitting bubbles. Hitting a bubble will knock Yoshi
      back (and high up into the air if he jump on one), and if he eats one,
      he can spit them himself (though the bubbles won't defeat many
      enemies).
    
    -Sumo Shy Guy: Difficulty: Medium Easy     Abilities: Walk/Run
                   Defeat: Eat, Egg            Speed: Medium Slow, Medium
      Sumo Shy Guys are gigantic variations of their normal kin. When eaten,
      they'll produce a large egg. When a large egg is thrown, the moment it
      touches the ground it has the same effect of a POW block (turning
      enemies into stars). If you jump on a Sumo Shy Guy's head, it'll speed
      up in a frantic frenzy.
    
    -Monkey: Difficulty: Medium Easy           Abilities: Jump, Climb
            Defeat: Eat, Stomp, Egg            Speed: Fast
      Monkeys are a common enemy in World 3, appearing in many of the jungle
      settings. If they get a chance, they'll steal Baby Mario (similar to a
      Bandit), but they'll usually just hop away when you get close. To get
      rid of them, stomp them once, then run through the side of them. You
      can also eat them in even less time.
    
    -Throwing Monkey: Difficulty: Medium        Abilities: Throw Object
                      Defeat: Eat, Stomp, Egg   Speed: Immobile
      Throwing Monkeys hold onto the sides of trees, and occasionally drop
      an object (either a Mini Cactus or Missile) at Yoshi. The easiest way
      to beat them is to eat them, but be forewarned that if you eat them
      after they pull out an object, it'll fly out of their hands and
      possibly at you.
    
    -Watermelon Monkeys: Difficulty: Medium        Abilities: Spit Seeds
                         Defeat: Eat, Stomp, Egg   Speed: Fast/Immobile
      Watermelon Monkeys are like one of the two kinds previously mentioned
      (they either run around or hold onto a tree/vine), but they come with
      a Watermelon and aren't afraid to spit a few high-speed seeds at you.
      Defeat them like any other Monkey, just be more cautious when
      approaching them. Once the Monkey is disposed of, you can slurp up the
      Watermelon, although it won't yield as many seeds.
    
    -Swinging Monkeys: Difficulty: Medium      Abilities: Swing
                       Defeat: Get Hit         Speed: Medium
      Swinging Monkeys are groups of several Monkeys that grab onto each
      other and make a swinging Monkey chain. If they touch you, one Monkey
      will grab Baby Mario and run. The good thing, though, is that the
      Monkey Chain will be destroyed.
    
    -Jumping Fish: Difficulty: Medium Easy     Abilities: Jump, Swim
                   Defeat: Eat, Stomp, Egg     Speed: Medium
      Jumping Fish patrol certain waters, jump out randomly to attack
      anybody above. A quick stomp will get rid of them, and even if their
      jumping a stomp will work. A variation of this kind will continually
      jump forward, or back and forth in a sem-circle pattern.
    
    -Spear Shy Guy: Difficulty: Medium Easy    Abilities: Block, Walk
                    Defeat: Eat, Egg           Speed: Medium Slow
      Spear Shy Guys are pretty much Shy Guys that can't be attacked from
      the front or above. Their spears prevent you from stomping them, and
      their shields prevent you from attacking from the front. Sneak up
      behind and eat/egg them or you'll have some pesky enemies to avoid.
    
    -Cannibal Shy Guy: Difficulty: Medium Hard   Abilities: Dance
                       Defeat: Eat, Egg          Speed: Medium
      Cannibal Shy Guys are funny little creatures, natives of World 3 like
      the Spear Shy Guys. They, however, prefer to dance around instead of
      patrol. Their dance makes them move in a strange pattern, making them
      a bit harder to get by than the Spear Shy Guys. Also, their spears are
      much longer. You can tell when they're near by their chants.
    
    -Watermelon Seed Shy Guy: Difficulty: Medium Easy   Abilities: Spit
                              Defeat: Eat, Egg          Speed: Immobile
      The Watermelon Seed Shy Guy appears in only one level, and even then
      he doesn't really serve much purpose. When you jump on it's head,
      it'll flatten out and spit out Watermelon seeds at any nearby enemies.
      Cool, definitely, but rather useless.
    
    -Cheep Cheep: Difficulty: Medium Easy      Abilities: Swim
                  Defeat: Torpedo              Speed: Medium
      Cheep-Cheep, one of the few underwater enemies, generally mind their
      own business, but if they catch sight of you, they'll charge. Fire a
      torpedo before they get the chance.
    
    -Bloober: Difficulty: Medium Easy          Abilities: Swim
              Defeat: Torpedo                  Speed: Medium Slow
      Bloobers inhabit the ocean depths that you explore in the submarine
      transformation. They're slower than Cheep-Cheep, and tend to calmy
      float around instead of attack you. They just get in the way. Clear
      them out with some torpedos.
    
    -Puffer Fish: Difficulty: Medium           Abilities: Expand
                  Defeat: N/A                  Speed: Slow
      The Puffer Fish lives in the deep sea as well, simply floating in a
      single spot, not minding submarine Yoshi passing by. However, if it's
      attacked (i.e.- shot with a torpedo), than it'll puff up to more than
      twice its normal size and try to hurt Yoshi. Just be sure to be on the
      lookout for them when you fire the torpedos.
    
    -Froggy: Difficulty: Medium                Abilities: Jump, Slurp
             Defeat: Eat, Egg                  Speed: Medium
      Froggies hop around jungle areas. It's hard to predict when they
      will jump next, so always be on your guard. Sometimes they lash out
      their extra-long toungues to grab Baby Mario from Yoshi. Eat them as
      soon as you see them to prevent any harm.
    
    -Giant Crab: Difficulty: Medium            Abilities: Scuttle, Claw
                 Defeat: Egg (x3)              Speed: Medium Slow/Medium
      Giant Crabs live in the lush jungles of World 3, and will slowly
      scuttle along. If they happen to spot Yoshi in their path, they charge
      and use their claw (which grows to a large proportion) to try and bash
      Yoshi. They have very tough skin, and it'll take three shots with eggs
      to defeat one.
    
    -Fake Flower: Difficulty: Medium           Abilities: Drop, Roll
                  Defeat: N/A                  Speed: Medium Fast
      Fake Flowers somewhat resemble more evil-looking versions of the
      collectible Flowers, signified by their evil grimaces. When
      approached, they drop down from the sky and roll at Yoshi. Don't be
      hasty and immediately think it's a real Flower or you'll pay the
      consequences.
    
    -Cactus Piranha Plant: Difficulty: Hard    Abilities: Spit Mini-Cactus
                           Defeat: Egg x3      Speed: Immobile
      The Cactus Piranha Plant spits three Min-Cacti at a time, each going
      a different distance, than pausing for a second. It will take three
      eggs to defeat this mean guy, or more conviniently, three watermelon
      seeds.
    
    -Harry Hedgehog: Difficulty: Medium Hard   Abilities: Growth (Spines)
                     Defeat: Eat, Egg          Speed: Medium Fast
    
      Harry the Hedgehog only populates one level in World 3, but you'll be
      thankful as it's a rather menaceing foe. You cant stomp it, and
      whenever you come close to it, it'll grow enormous spines on its
      otherwise tiny back. They're also pretty fast, so defeat these guys
      quickly before they can stick you.
    
    -Catfish: Difficulty: Medium               Abilities: Swallow
              Defeat: N/A                      Speed: Medium
    
      The Catfish is a large enemy that lives in water (duh). This guy pokes
      his eyes out when you come near, then retreats to the lake to get
      momentum for his attack. What's his attack? Swallowing you hole. If
      you see this guy in the water, don't go in or there's a chance he'll
      eat you. Him eating you results in an automatic loss of life.
    
    -Bubble Guy: Difficulty: Medium Easy       Abilities: Walk, Bubbles
                 Defeat: N/A                   Speed: Medium
      Bubbles Guys are cute little purple creatures that walk around
      frantically, and can only hurt you by running into you (they don't
      seem to do this intentionally). Much like Bubble Flowers, these guys
      can spit bubbles. However, they will only do so if you stomp on them.
    
    -Tunnel Boo: Difficulty: Medium             Abilities: Spit, Extend
                 Defeat: N/A (shrink with egg)  Speed: Medium Slow
      Tunnel Boos inhabit small tunnels, and if you don't have full eggs,
      will spit out Shy Guys. Since they take up the entire tunnel, the
      only way to get by them is to shoot eggs at them, causing them to
      scooch back. Enough eggs (usually 6) will get them back far enough.
    
    -Room Boo: Difficulty: Medium              Abilities: Spit, Grow
               Defeat: N/A (shrink with egg)   Speed: Immobile
      Room Boos are very similar to Tunnel Boos, except they large rooms.
      To shrink their immense girth, you must throw eggs at them. Five egg
      shots is enough to get over.
    
    -Path Piranha: Difficulty: Medium Hard      Abilities: Chomp, Patrol
                   Defeat: N/A (stun with egg)  Speed: Medium
      Path Piranhas patrol fixed paths, and when they encounter you, will
      swallow Yoshi for a few seconds. An egg will cause them to stop
      briefly, but there usually isn't enough room to get by them. It's best
      to just be patient and let them pass.
    
    -Scuba Lakitu: Difficulty: Medium          Abilities: Spike Drop
                   Defeat: Stomp, Eat, Egg     Speed: Immobile
      Scuba Lakitu are just like normal Lakitu, but they are found in
      shallow waters. They duck down to hide then splash out to throw a
      spiked ball at Yoshi.
    
    -Ravens: Difficulty: Medium Easy           Abilities: Run
             Defeat: Stomp, Eat, Egg           Speed: Fast
      Quoth the raven: "these guys are easy to beat, but eating them won't
      give you an egg... they're pretty fast too."
    
    -Mad Butterflies: Difficulty: Medium       Abilities: Fly, Anger
                      Defeat: Eat              Speed: Medium (Fast when angered)
      Mad Butterflies remind me of the caterpillars from Super Mario World in both
      appearance and attitude. When you just walk by, they're nice and happy. But
      stomp their heads and they burst out in rage. You can eat these guys fairly
      easily.
    
    
    
    ________________________________________________________________________
    
               - - - - - - - - - - - ITEMS - - - - - - - - - - -
    
       Here's a list of all the items you can collect in the Bonus Challenges. To
    use them, enter the pause screen. Along the bottom bar are three squares. If
    you have any items, they will appear in these (scroll over to find more). Press
    A to use them. They will come in handy, so stock up.
    
    +10 Stars: This is an incredibly handy item, and is especially useful
       when you're at the end of a level and are short a few stars. Just
       select it, and you'll immediately get ten more stars. Unfortunately,
       this (and any other item) can't be sued while fighting a boss).
    
    +20 Stars: The +20 star item is just like the +10, but it'll instead
       give you 20 stars.
    
    Full Eggs: This is another handy item. In many situations, you may run
       out of eggs but need an egg to get some out of reach item. Simply
       go to the menu and select the eggs, and it'll fill you up to the
       maximum of six eggs.
    
    Cloud: The cloud is a more tedious method of gaining stars, but
       depending on the number of enemies on the screen, can gain you more
       stars than normal. The cloud item will transform any enemies on the
       screen into clouds, which, when shot with an egg will burst open
       with 5 stars. In certain circumstances, something special may occur
       (See Part 4, Section B).
    
    POW Block: This is yet another way of gaining additional stars, but like
       the Cloud item, will also get rid of enemies. With the POW block,
       however, you won't need to waste eggs as any enemies on the screen
       will turn into a star. This means less stars than with the
       Cloud item, though.
    
    Green Watermelon: The Green Watermelon is the basic watermelon. When
       used, you'll get a limited amount of watermelon seeds to spit out at
       enemies. It's also useful for destroying dirt or hitting "?" Clouds.
    
    Red Watermelon: The Red Watermelon is a very nice weapon. When you use
       it, a powerful stream of flames will burst from Yoshi's mouth. Use it
       to defeat enemies, activate ? Clouds, or melt ice blocks.
    
    Blue Watermelon: The shiny, Blue Watermelon is the last of the bunch.
       It's powers are similar to the Red Watermelon's, except that when it
       touches an enemy, they freeze. Yoshi can then stomp then and they'll
       shatter. While it can't destroy ice blocks, it can take out some
       of the foes the Red Watermelon can't.
    
    Magnifying Glass: If you're having trouble locating the Red Coins
       (although you shouldn't with this FAQ), switch on the Magnifying
       Glass. Any coins that are Red Coins will appear in their true form
       (when they're the color red). This is helpful in knowing which coins
       you should go after and which you should leave be.
    
    ________________________________________________________________________
    
          - - - - - - - - - - - SPECIAL OBJECTS - - - - - - - - - - -
    
       Special Objects are places and things found around Yoshi's Island that Yoshi
    can interact with in some way. All of the Special Objects have a purpose, but
    exactly what they do and how they'll help/harm you is explained in this
    section.
    
    -Purple Yoshi Block: The Purple Yoshi Block is a square block that is
     the same design of a Yoshi Egg, but colored purple. When Yoshi jumps up
     and smashes it from underneath, it'll grow into a much larger block,
     allowing Yoshi to access new places he couldn't reach before.
    
    -Small Arrow Ball: The Small Arrow Ball is very bouncy. When Yoshi jumps
     on it, he'll bounce. If you press B when he's on it, he'll rocket up
     into the sky. A Small Arrow Ball will allow Yoshi to jump twice as high
     as he normally could.
    
    -Large Arrow Ball: Large Arrow Balls have the exact same purpose as a
     Small Arrow Ball, but you can jump four times as high as you could
     normally (twice as high as the Small Arrow Ball).
    
    -"?" Cloud: This cloud with a question mark is sort of like the ? Block
     of Yoshi's Island. When shot with an egg, these clouds will either
     burst open with some special item or lose their wings and fall to the
     earth, causing some change in the environment. It's almost always
     helpful to throw an egg at these. Those that contain stars will be
     referred to as "Star Clouds" in this FAQ.
    
    -Outline Stairs: These are activated by shooting certain "?" Clouds.
     They appear only as an outline at first, but are transformed into
     stairs if the cloud is shot.
    
    -Egg Block: Egg Blocks will give you eggs. A green Egg Block is filled
     with an infinite amount of green eggs, and up to the max of six can be
     knocked out. Yellow or Red Egg Blocks, when smashed, will turn into an
     egg of the corresponding color.
    
    -Star Tulip: These gargantuan tulips float in the air, and are more than
     just pretty flowers. When an egg, enemy, or shell is thrown into the
     top of them, they'll shoot out eight stars for you to collect.
    
    -Rotating Platform: These contraptions are made up of four platforms
     that rotate around a central axis. One kind rotates by itself, while
     another requires Yoshi's weight to get it moving.
    
    -Growing Flower: The growing flower is very helpful in reaching high
     places. The seed for the large flower resides in a "?" Cloud. When
     shot, it'll fall to the ground and a flower will soon sprout out of the
     earth. Climb the leaves on the side to go up it.
    
    -Pipes: Pipes, like in all other Mario games, will lead you to another
     area, which is usually underground. Some pipes don't allow you to enter
     them.
    
    -Enemy Pipe: While the word "enemy" makes it sound like this contraption
     is bad, it is actually intended for good purposes. When Yoshi is low on
     eggs, an enemy will hop out of the pipe. Yoshi can then eat it to get
     an egg. Up to six enemies will come out, depending on how many eggs
     Yoshi needs.
    
    -Face Block: If you're new to the game, it's a good idea to hit the Face
     Blocks. When hit, they'll give you helpful hints and information.
    
    -Chomp Rock: The Chomp Rock is a large boulder that Yoshi can push
     around. It can plow through almost any enemy, so its quite helpful as a
     shield for Yoshi, especially when going downhill. If the rock is up
     against a wall, stand on the one side to get it to start rolling.
    
    -Transformation Bubble: When Yoshi touches one of these, he'll transform
     into the vehicle shown on the bubble (See Part 2, Section F for
     Transformations).
    
    -Balloon: Balloons carry items, such as Coins, 1-Ups, and Keys.
     Sometimes three balloons join together to carry a crate. Shoot them
     with an egg of lick them with your tongue to get the item. They float
     to the left slowly, so it shouldn't be a problem.
    
    -Middle Ring: The Middle Ring is a ring of stars located somewhere in
     the middle of the level (some levels have none, some have more than
     one). When you jump into it, you will start at that point (rather than
     the beginning) if you die. As a bonus, you get 10 stars.
    
    -Blockers: These things look like two pinball flippers, but their
     purpose is different. Instead of knocking you into the sky, they allow
     you access from one way, but not the other.
    
    -Posts: Posts are abundant in Yoshi's Island. They stick into the ground
     and can be pounded down for a number of reasons, usually to find any
     Red Coins that may be hidden inside of them.
    
    -Secret Cloud: A Secret Cloud is actually the same thing as a "?" Cloud.
     The difference is that a secret cloud is not readily visible. To make
     it appear, Yoshi must either run over it or push a Chomp Rock/Snowball
     over its location. Sometimes only one of the methods works.
    
    -Crate: Crates contain a special item, usually either six Stars or a
     Key. To break them open, do a ground pound attack.
    
    -Switch: The red switches will make a hidden warp available when
     stomped, indicated by a flashing red arrow. Stand under the arrow and
     press down, as if you were entering a pipe. This will lead you to a
     bonus area.
    
    -Bucket: Buckets come in two forms: one that spins around when shot,
     releasing five coins. The more helpful type will fall down into the
     water/lava beneath it, providing Yoshi a safe ride across.
    
    -See-Saw: These are very large versions of See-Saws, that work the same
     way. When you stand on one end, the other rises. Quickly dash to the
     other side to reach new heights.
    
    -Locked Door: A Locked Door leads to a new area, or possible a
     Mini-Game. Find the key to unlock it.
    
    -Key: Use the Key to unlock the Locked Door.
    
    -Flower Pot: Flower Pots can be broken if they're dropped off a ledge,
     and contain coins or sometimes a key.
    
    -Egg Flower: The Egg Flower is a strange flower that produces eggs.
     It's basically a way to get a refill on eggs. It'll spit them out of
     the top, and if Yoshi wants the eggs, he must catch them.
    
    -Donut Lift: The classic Sky-object from Mario 3 and Mario World, the
     Donut Lift makes sure you don't dawdle. If you stand on one for more
     than a brief moment, it'll plunge into the sky below. Keep moving and
     jumping so they don't fall.
    
    -Guided Platform: Guided Platforms are like any other platform, but they
     follow an outlined path that you can see. They come in different colors
     depending on the speed they move. Green is slowest, Yellow is medium,
     and Red is fast.
    
    -1-Up Balloon: This is a very uncommon item. If eaten, Yoshi will get an
     extra life. If touched, he'll get hurt.
    
    -Arrow Globe: The Arrow Globe is a round, spinning ball with an arrow on
     it. When Yoshi jumps on it, it begins moving in the direction that it
     is pointed. Use it to cross bottomless pits or get to a very high
     location. The blue variety will wear out soon after it has been used.
     To transport it, keep it in your mouth (eat it).
    
    -Roller: I can't think of any better name for this spinning... things.
     See? You can jump on top of them, but if you stand there, it'll roll
     and you'll fall off.
    
    -Ghost Platform: Ghost platforms are platforms on a ghosts head. They
     move in strange patterns and usually fairly quickly.
    
    -Spike Switch/Spike Platform: Spike Platforms are all nice and safe on
     one side, but on the other spikes rest. A Spike Switch will control
     which side faces up.
    
    -Poochy: The faithful canine Poochy can run through anything: lava,
     spikes, enemies, you name it. He can also jump high, and you can jump
     off his back, giving you more than double the height of a normal jump.
     To control him, just tap the direction you want to go. If he's going
     too fast, just tap the other way to slow him down.
    
    -Super Mario Star: This star bounces around, and when touched, Baby
     Mario will take command. With the star, Baby Mario has a bunch of
     abilities. First of all, he's invincible, and touching any enemy will
     make them explode. Second, he has the power to float with his cape,
     slowing decents (hold B). Finally, he can run up walls. The only
     problem is that this form doesn't last very long and you'll have to
     find a constant supply of Super Mario Stars if you want to keep the
     form.
    
    -Falling Blocks: These are large, gray-colored blocks, that fall to the
     earth, crushing anything beneath it and providing extra height to those
     above it. They also play the role of collapsing bridges, as many times
     you must run across a bottomless pit as these descend.
    
    -Arrow Cloud: When shot with an egg, the Arrow cloud will fire the egg
     at a high speed in the direction it's pointing. Sometimes the arrow in
     the cloud moves, and you'll have to time it right (wait until it is one
     position before the desired position until letting go).
    
    -Lava, Spikes, and Spikey Rocks: These red, tan, and blue/gray objects
     are very dangerous, as one touch will automatically defeat Yoshi.
     Approach with caution.
    
    -Lava Log: Jump on these, and they'll slowly move across the lake of
     lava that they float it.
    
    -Teetering Log: These logs are held up only by the pointed end of
     another log. Stand on one side for too long, and it'll fall.
    
    -Timed Platforms: These are big, red objects with a number on them. The
     number represents how many times you can jump on them before they
     disappear. They subtract a number each time you jump off.
    
    -Mama Duck: Mama Duck waddles around with here babies following behind
     her, which can be only one to quite a few. When you stomp her, she
     loses cotrol of her babies. If you grab them, they'll serve as
     boomerang eggs. When thrown, not only will they come back, but they'll
     go through objects (as opposed to eggs exploding on contact), making
     them much better than the normal egg. However, their distance is
     limited, so for far away objects you'll still need eggs.
    
    -Swinging Platform: These platforms swing around a central point, which
     is identified by what looks like an egg block. Jump on it as it comes
     around. It's speed will remain constant.
    
    -Platforms Blocks: These checkered blocks, when hit, will transform into
     platforms that move either up and down or left and right. It's always
     beneficial to activate these.
    
    -POW Block: POW Blocks are very powerful and will turn any nearby enemies into
     Stars for you to collect.
    
    -Timed Platforms: These platforms are small and allow you to step on them, but
     only a certain number of times. The number on the platform indicates how many
     times you can step on it before it disappears.
    
    -Balloons: Balloons will gradually float higher. You can use them to hitch a
     ride to area above you. Another kind of balloon can be blown up and you can
     ride it horizontally as it lets out air and becomes smaller.

          - - - - - - - - - - - TRANSFORMATIONS - - - - - - - - - - -
    
       One of the coolest aspects of Yoshi's Island is Yoshi's ability to transform
    into cool vehicles. The vehicles offer a quick and beneficial mode of
    transportation. The goal while in vehicle form is to make it to the Yoshi Block
    at the end, but also to collect any items that you can get while in that form.
    To prolong the period that you're transformed, go through another
    Transformation Bubble.
    
    Helicopter: The Helicopter is the only transformation that allows Yoshi
       to fly. It doesn't have any special features, but flying is pretty
       helpful in itself. It can move quickly, but it turns around slowly
       and does not change altitude easily.
    
    Mole Tank: The Mole Tank is the underground transformation. The Mole
       Tank can dig through dirt, collecting coins and items buried their.
       It moves slowly, but can also drive up walls and on the ceiling.
    
    Train: Although the Train can move along the ground, its main function
       is to ride along tracks in the background. In the foreground, it can
       move fairly quickly. The unique function of the train, though, is to
       go into the background and ride along the tracks, collecting coins
       and items there. As a transformation, it rate low, but is needed to
       collect items in several levels.
    
    Submarine: The Submarine is the only transformation with a weapon, and
       the only one that can travel underwater, too. It's not very fast, and
       it maneuvers poorly, but the torpedoes it shoots homes in on enemies
       and takes them out quickly.
    
    Car: The Car is the speediest of the land transformations, and is used
       to zoom across the countryside. It's special function is to rise
       high above the ground on stilts, collecting items above and avoiding
       enemies below).

            - - - - - - - - - - - MINI-GAMES - - - - - - - - - - -
    
       In many of the levels, you may come across a locked hut. Inside is a special
    mini-game, but you must find the key to get inside. Once you do, the Bandit
    inside will challenge you to a game of skill.
    
    -Throwing Balloons (4)-
    This is one of the more common, but less fun Mini-Games. Yoshi and the Bandit
    toss a balloon to each other as it continues to grow. When it gets to big,
    it'll pop, and whoever's holding it loses. To toss it back, Yoshi must perform
    a sequence of button presses (for example A, B, Down, Left). After he presses
    the four correct buttons, he throws it to the Bandit. There's also a timer, and
    if you fail to press the buttons fast enough, you must start over. The best
    strategy is to hold it until it's about to pop, then toss it to the Bandit.
    However, you can also take the hot potato strategy and just try holding it for
    the least amount of time possible.
    
    -Throwing Balloons (6)-
    This version of the balloon toss plays exactly the same as the Balloon Toss
    (4), but is a tad more challenging. Instead of a sequence of four buttons you
    must press, there are six. Also, the timer is a bit longer.
    
    -Popping Balloons-
    Popping Balloons is a fun Mini-Game, but is more luck-oriented that the others.
    The room is filled with several levels of balloons, and one contains a prize.
    You must go around the room popping the balloons (by doing the ground pound)
    and find the right balloon before the bandit. Just be as quick as you can and
    hope for the best.
    
    -Gather Coins-
    In Gather Coins, a cannon is placed at the top of the screen, moving back and
    forth across the room. Every few seconds, it'll shoot a coin out. Whoever grabs
    it first gets the coin. Whoever has the most coins at the end wins. Yoshi has a
    huge advantage over the Bandit with his extra-long tongue that can grab coins
    right after they shoot out. Another good strategy is to bounce off the Bandits
    head, not only delaying him but giving you enough height to grab the next coin
    when it first comes out.
    
    -Watermelon Seed Spitting Contest-
    This is one of the more challenging games, as it requires the most skill. The
    room is filled with pots that will bring out watermelons. Once collected, Yoshi
    can spit the seeds at his opponent, slowly depleting his life meter. The
    opponent hides behind the walls, however, only coming out to try and spit at
    Yoshi. Hit him as soon as he comes out, then watch out for the seeds he spits.
    If you see a Red Watermelon, quickly spit out your remaining seeds and grab it,
    as one hit with that baby will kill your opponent.
    
    ________________________________________________________________________
    
         - - - - - - - - - - - BONUS CHALLENGES - - - - - - - - - - -
    
       The Bonus Ring at the end of every level decides whether or not you get to
    participate in a Bonus Challenge. The more Flowers you collect, the better your
    chances. If the roulette-like ring lands on a Flower, you'll get to play.
    Unlike the Mini-Games, the Bonus Challenges are games of chance rather than
    skill.
    
    -Flip Cards-
    This is one of the better games for items. A 3x3 grid of cards is set up (the
    center being the Exit card). There are three types of cards: Items, Toadies, or
    Kamek. Select a card and shoot it to see what it is. If it's an Item, you'll
    get that item. If it's a Toadie, nothing will happen. If it's Kamek, you lose
    the game (including all the Items you received). It's best to exit after you
    get two items or one really good item. If you manage to get every item without
    overturning Kamek, you'll get a bonus 10-Up.
    
    -Scratch and Match-
    Scratch and Match is the basic 1-Up game. There are seven square tiles, and
    like a lottery card, can be scratched to reveal a prize. If a Baby Mario is
    unveiled, it's good. A Toadie is bad. You get three scratches to uncover as
    many Baby Marios as possible. If you uncover one, you get a 1-Up, two, you get
    a 2-Up, and three, you get a 5-Up.
    
    -Drawing Lots-
    The Drawing Lots game is quick and simple. There are six squares. Three contain
    items, and three are Kamek. You win the item if you select it, you lose if you
    get a Kamek.
    
    -Match Cards-
    This game is by far the best of them all, as you have a good chance of getting
    a bunch of items and a 10-Up. All it requires is a decent memory. When the game
    begins, you get to see where all the cards are, but are quickly turned over. If
    you can match two of the same card, you'll win the item. The last match is
    always a 10-Up instead of the cards it appeared as before. It's best to
    remember where the best items are, and get them first. If you can remember
    where four matches are (eight cards total), you'll have a good chance of
    winning. If someone else is around, have them remember where some are, too.
    
    -Roulette-
    Roulette is the only game that you can lose something in. When it begins, you
    bet a certain amount of lives (you can't bet your last life, though). Then you
    start the wheel, then stop it. On the left are multiplication and addition
    signs. On the right are numbers 0-3. The equation you land on is what you get
    (example: you bet 5 lives, and the cursor lands on + and 2, so you get 5+2 or 7
    lives). If you get x2 or x3, you'll get a bunch of extra lives, but if you get
    x0, you'll lose all the lives that you bet. Getting x1 or +0 will give you back
    your lives, while +1, +2, or +3 will give you a few extra lives.
    
    -Slot Machine-
    The Slot Machine is the hardest Bonus Challenge to beat, and even if you do
    win, the lives you get aren't that numerous. It's basically like any slot
    machine; you control when it stops spinning. Getting three 7s will give you a
    5-Up, three Eggs will give you a 3-Up, three Cherries will give you a 2-Up, and
    a Shy Guy, Star, and Watermelon (in that order) will give you a 1-Up.

       Shy Guy
    Mini-Games: None
    Transformations: None
    
    -Level Walkthrough-
    This level is pretty easy to find everything, but I'll walk you through it just
    in case. Run through the fields, and you'll soon see a Flower above. Stand on
    the rock to the right of it to jump to it, or shoot an egg at it. Continue
    through the field until you come to a floating platform. Above is a "?" Cloud
    and an Outline Stairs. Shoot the cloud to make the stairs appear, then go up.
    There are six Red Coins up here, as well as a Flower. Jump over to the platform
    behind it and a Flying Shy Guy will fly down. Eat him or shoot him to break
    open the "?" Cloud he carriers, which contains stars. Go back down the stairs
    and stay on the ground. Shoot the lower Piranha Plant, then go into the pipe
    behind it. You're now underground. In this cave are 2 Flying Shy Guys carrying
    Red Coins, a Star Tulip, and six Red Coins in the line of Coins above. There's
    also a couple balloons, one carrying coins and another a 1-Up. Use the Chomp
    Rock to collect the coins above and to reach the exit. When you come out of the
    cave, go to the left to collect the third Flower. Head over to the right where
    a Rotating Platform is. Jump down below it and collect the four Red Coins and
    Flower there (you don't need to kill the Piranha Plants). Jump back out and
    continue down the path. Shoot the cloud above the Shy Guy Pipe to release the
    stars within. Further down the path is another "?" Cloud which contains a seed.
    Shoot it and climb the Flower. Go over to the left and shoot the "?" Cloud in
    the air. In it is a Flower. Grab it and jump onto the Rotating Platform. Above
    it are the final two Red Coins. Jump to the ledge on the right and push the
    Chomp Rock down the slope to clear the path of enemies. When it stops, look
    upward to find a cloud which contains stars. Collect them, then head to the
    exit.
    
    -Item Locations-

     *A Flying Shy Guy to the left of the stairs holds a "?" Cloud
      containing Stars.

    ~LEVEL 1-2: WATCH OUT BELOW!~
    Type: Normal          Difficulty: Easy          Yoshi Color: Dark Red
    No. of Coins: 96      No. of Stars: 25          No. of "?" Clouds: 5
    Enemies: Shy Guy, Singing Flower, Piranha Plant, Flying Shy Guy, Chomp
    Mini-Games: None
    Transformations: Helicopter
    
    -Level Walkthrough-
    The second level starts out in a field, much like the first. However, things
    will soon get hectic as the Chomps in the background will have fun with target
    practice... and you're the target! Watch for shadows and don't dawdle in any
    place for too long. The first Flower is down the path a ways, right after the
    pair of Shy Guys and right before where the first Chomp comes crashing down.
    Right after the Flower are a few coins, two of which are Red Coins. Further
    through the field is a "?" Cloud. Don't stand underneath it, because this is
    where a Chomp drops. Shoot it to uncover a Flower. To the right of this area
    four more Red Coins in the plain where quite a few Chomps drop. When you reach
    the two posts, you're safe from Chomps, and even better, a Star Cloud is above.
    Continue through the Blocker and activate the Middle Ring. Above the Shy Guy
    Pipe are four Red Coins. Shoot an egg to reach them, then shoot another egg
    through the wall on the right to get to the Arrow Ball. Jump up and in the next
    area, head right, up, left, up, and right (if you go left instead of the last
    right you'll find a second Middle Ring). You'll soon come to a Helicopter
    Bubble. Transform, the head to the right. Beneath the first floating island are
    two Red Coins and a Flower. Go inside the second floating island from the
    bottom to reach another Flower, then head up and to the right (follow the
    arrows) into a tunnel that contains three Red Coins. It may take you a few
    tries, but just concentrate on getting the items. When you've gotten them all,
    hit the Yoshi block on the ground near the entrance to the latter tunnel. Head
    over to the pipe, but before entering, jump up above it to find two more Red
    Coins. The next area starts off with a "?" Cloud, which contains a Flower. The
    last three Red Coins are above the level's only Piranha Plant. Head to the
    exit, and watch out for Chomps!
    
    -Item Locations-
    ~Stars:
     *A Star Cloud is situated between the two posts after the Chomp Zone.
     *The Middle Ring after the Blocker will get you 10 more stars.
     *There's a second Middle Ring in the top-left corner of the tunnel
      maze.
    ~Red Coins:
     *Two Red Coins are in the first line of coins (in the Chomp Zone).
     *Four more Red Coins are in the second line of coins (in the Chomp
      Zone.
     *Four Red Coins are above the Shy Guy Pipe (after the first Middle
      Ring). Shoot an egg up to get them.
     *Two Red Coins are under the first floating island in the Helicopter
      Zone.
     *Three Red Coins are in a tunnel at the top-right corner of the
      Helicopter Zone.
     *Two Red Coins are above the pipe exiting the Helicopter Zone.
     *Three Red Coins are above the level's only Piranha Plant.
    ~Flowers:
     *The first Flower is in plain sight after the pair of Shy Guys.
     *The second Flower is hidden in a "?" Cloud in the center of the Chomp
      Zone.
     *The third Flower is under the first floating island in the Helicopter
      Zone.
     *The fourth Flower is in the second floating island. Enter from
      underneath.
     *The fifth Flower is in a "?" Cloud immediately after you exit the
      Helicopter Zone.
    
    -1-Up Locations-
     *Run along the very bottom of the Helicopter Zone. At the very right is
      a Hidden Cloud which contains a 1-Up.
     *A Flying Shy Guy near the fifth Flower zooms down holding a 1-Up. Grab
      him to get it.

    ~LEVEL 1-3: THE CAVE OF THE CHOMP ROCK~
    Type: Underground     Difficulty: Easy          Yoshi Color: Blue
    No. of Coins: 122     No. of Stars: 26          No. of "?" Clouds: 4
    Enemies: Piranha Plant, Shy Guy, Nipper, Lantern Ghoul
    Mini-Games: Throwing Balloons (4)
    Transformations: None
    
    -Level Walkthrough-
    As a nice change of pace, this level goes underground into a deep, dark cave
    full of surprises. Go down the pipe at the beginning of the level to enter.
    You'll come into a cave, and a Chomp Rock will start rolling behind you. Head
    to the right (don't worry about the Chomp Rock. It won't hurt you). After the
    first post is an easily-visible crate. Smash it to get six stars. Over to the
    right some more is a second post surrounded by dirt. Do the Pound move to get
    rid of the dirt, then pound down the post to find a Red Coin. Continue on and
    you'll come to a small pit with Nippers inside. Above in the coin-filled-sky
    are four Red Coins. Soon afterwards you'll enter an area with several tunnels
    leading further underground. At the bottom of the leftmost tunnel is a Flower
    and two Red Coins. The second tunnel turns branches into three tunnels.
    Starting at 12 and going counter-clockwise, the first tunnel leads to the Key
    Hut, the second leads to a Flower and two Red Coins, and the third leads to
    four Red Coins and a Star Cloud. Collect all the items, then go above this
    tunnel to find the Middle Ring. Over to the right more is a prime
    mushroom-growing area. Above the mushrooms is another Flower. Over more to the
    right are several tall posts, and those who pound them will find two Red Coins.
    Above these posts are two items floating by on balloons: a crate (filled with
    stars) and a key (to the Key Hut). Shoot them both down with eggs, then head
    back to the Key Hut to play the nice Mini-Game, Throwing Balloons. When all is
    done, head back past the posts and through the tunnels (two Red Coins are
    before the enemy pipe). On the right part of the dirt area is a Flower. Shoot
    through the dirt to get it. Further down the path are two posts. Pound the left
    one down to unveil a Hidden cloud. Shoot it to make a Switch appear, and stomp
    it to find out where to go. Take the warp to a coin-filled Bonus Area. After
    you exit, push the Chomp Rock down the path so you can jump on it and reach the
    area above, which has three Red Coins and the final Flower. Now all you have to
    do is get out of the cave and to the end of the level, which isn't much further
    now.
    
    -Item Locations-
    ~Stars:
     *The crate at the level's beginning contains six stars.
     *A Star Cloud rests at the bottom of the rightmost tunnel.
     *Another crate flies up in the sky attached to balloons after the
      tunnel area. Shoot the balloons with eggs to make it come to earth.
     *Don't miss the Middle Ring above the right tunnels.
    ~Red Coins:
     *A Red Coin is hidden in the second post in the level (the one
      surrounded by dirt).
     *Four Red Coins are found in the air after the second post (above the
      pit full of Nipper Plants).
     *Two Red Coins are found at the bottom of the leftmost tunnel.
     *Two Red Coins are found at the bottom of the left branch of the
      right tunnel.
     *Four Red Coins are found at the bottom of the right branch of the
      right tunnel.
     *Two Red Coins are in the group of three posts where the Nipper spores
      land.
     *Two Red Coins are found after the ones previously mentioned, before
      the Lantern Ghoul pipe.
     *Three Red Coins are found in the chamber above the second Chomp Rock
      (push the Chomp Rock over to the opening and use it as a step).
    ~Flowers:
     *The first Flower is at the end of the righmost tunnel.
     *The second Flower is at the end of the left branch of the right
      tunnel.
     *The third Flower is found above the mushrooms after the tunnel area.
     *The fourth Flower can be found in the right section of the dirt.
     *Look for the final Flower in the chamber above the tunnel before the
      exit, which can be reached by jumping from on top of the Chomp Rock.
    
    -1-Up Locations-
     *At the very beginning of the level, shoot the Piranha Plant on the
      right. Jump over to where it was, and a Hidden Cloud will appear.
      Shoot it to receive a 1-Up.
     *In the dirt area, shoot the upper left portion of the large patch of
      dirt of the right. You may hit (or reveal) a cloud behind the dirt,
      which contains a 1-Up.

    No. of Coins: 169     No. of Stars: 30          No. of "?" Clouds: 3
    Enemies: Bouncing Burt, Falling Wall, Spiked Ball & Chain, Small Lava
             Flame, Lava-enut, Mini Lava-enut
    Mini-Games: None
    Transformations: None
    
    -Level Walkthrough-
    This is the first time you'll face a boss, but don't worry, he's not that hard.
    This level is filled with traps and deadly lava, so watch your step. Start by
    running down the long hallway (watch out for falling walls), and be sure to
    pick up the Yellow Eggs along the way. When you get to the Small Arrow Ball,
    jump up above, then drop down into the room below (with the pair of Bouncing
    Burts). Grab the Flower on the other side, then jump back up. Continue and drop
    through the Blockers, then grab the Flower to the left. Now head across the
    lava pit. The six coins surrounding the large island where the Falling Wall is
    are all Red Coins, and you can find another above one of the platforms.
    Activate the Middle Ring before the pipe, then enter it. In here, run by the
    Spiked Ball & Chains (don't miss the Star Cloud, though) and shoot the "?"
    Cloud above the lava to make a bridge appear. Run across, collecting the three
    Red Coins there along the way. Jump onto the See-Saw on the other end and
    collect the Flower that's barely above the lava and the one that's high above
    in the air (on the left). Collect the two Red Coins above it, too. After the
    See-Saw is a Rotating Platform to either side of it are Red Coins (don't worry
    about the Mini Lava-enut beneath it, he's too slow to be able to hurt you).
    Head over to the right, past the Shy Guy pipe and the Locked Door. Wait by the
    lava lake for the Lava-enut to rise, then shoot it. This will give you enough
    time to get across. Hop over it, but don't miss the six Red Coins that are in
    the air. On the other side, push the Flower Pot off the ledge to find the Key.
    Run back across the lava lake (shoot the Lava-enut again if it's needed) and
    use the Key on the Locked Door. You'll now be in the final hallway. In the
    first door are four Piranha Plants. Kill them all to receive Flower. At the end
    of the hallway is a Middle Ring, a Star Cloud, and a red door that leads to the
    boss.
    
    -BOSS: Burt the Bashful-
    Burt the bashful, like all of the bosses, is a giant-sized version if the
    common enemy (thanks to Kamek's magic). Burt is embarrassed quite easily, and
    that's his weakness. He'd be incredibly embarrassed if his pants fell down, so
    he always keeps them up to his neck. So, as strange (and sick) as it may sound,
    Yoshi has to get off Burt's pants. This is rather easy. Just shoot eggs at him,
    and his pants will slowly lower. duck down in the little pits to avoid being
    hurt, and collect eggs from the Egg Flower. It's best to run under him at the
    start so you can duck in the pit that's close to the Egg Flower. After a six
    shots with eggs, Burt will be destroyed.
    
    -Item Locations-
    ~Stars:
     *A Middle Ring awaits at the end of the first lava area.
     *A Star Cloud awaits above one of the Spiked Ball & Chains after you
      take the pipe to the second part of the level.
     *Right before Burt the Bashful is another Middle Ring.
     *There's also a Star Cloud right above the previously mentioned Middle
      Ring.
    ~Red Coins:
     *Six Red Coins await on either side of the Falling Wall Island in the
      middle of the first lava lake.
     *A Red Coin can be found above the first lava lake.
     *Three Red Coins are above the Outline Bridge.
     *Two Red Coins rest above the See-Saw.
     *Two Red Coins can be collected if you ride the Rotating Platform after
      the See-Saw.
     *The final six Red Coins float above the Lava-enut's lava area.
    ~Flowers:
     *The first Flower is guarded by two Bouncing Burts after the first
      Arrow Ball.
     *The second Flower can be located right after the first, underneath the
      level's only Blockers.
     *Flower three is on the right end of the See-Saw, barely above the
      lava.
     *The fourth Flower is on the left end of the See-Saw, high above in the
      air.
     *Find the fifth Flower in the Piranha Plant room that's connected to
      the hallway leading to Burt. Kill all of the Piranha Plants inside to
      get it.
    
    -Hidden Stuff-
     *In the first area, look at the ceiling after the first Arrow Ball.
      Every once in a while you'll see a cracked block. Shoot it with an egg
      to make it crumble. Now, jump up and run along the top of the ceiling.
      Although you can't see what's going on, there's a long line of coins
      up there. Run both ways (you can jump over any more blocks you run
      into) to collect a couple of 1-Ups worth of coins.

    ~LEVEL 1-5: HOP! HOP! DONUT LIFTS!~
    Type: Sky             Difficulty: Medium Easy   Yoshi Color: Purple
    No. of Coins: 57      No. of Stars: 25          No. of "?" Clouds: 3
    Enemies: Flowerbed Shy Guy, Flying Shy Guy, Singing Flower, Shy Guy
    Mini-Games: None
    Transformations: None
    
    -Level Walkthrough-
    This level is a bit trickier than the previous few, mainly because it's
    self-scrolling and there's a couple tricky jumps involved (if you want to get
    all the items). Follow the screen along until you come to a rotating platform.
    The coins on either side above the lowest coins are Red. Scoop them up, then
    jump over to the platform on the left. Wait for it (be patient) to go down and
    get the Flower. Another Rotating Platform to the left has two Red Coins
    positioned at the very bottom of the semi-circle of coins. After this area,
    there's a self-rotating platform. Get on it and start moving it over to the
    left. Along the way you'll collect two Red Coins, and a Flower awaits at the
    end. When it stops, jump up to the platform above and grab the Red Coin from
    the Flying Shy Guy. On down the path more is a Star Cloud, then the level
    begins to scroll upwards. Don't fall behind or you'll die. A Flower is above
    the red platform in the middle of the first ascent, and soon after is the
    level's Middle Ring. To the right of the Middle Ring is a Self-Rotating
    Platform. Go across the chasm, and collect the five Red Coins and the Flower
    along the path. The level will continue to scroll upward, and you'll come
    across two cross-shaped coin formations along the way. The center coin in both
    is a Red Coin. In the middle of this second ascent, Flying Shy Guy will zoom
    down with a Star Cloud. Grab it before he flies away. At the top of the ascent
    is another Star Cloud. Now the level will begin to scroll to the right. A
    Flying Shy Guy carries a Red Coin, but then you'll be forced onto Donut Lifts.
    Hop so they don't fall, and shoot the Flower enclosed in the dirt with an egg.
    Under the last row of Donut Lifts are five Red Coins. Let the Donut Lifts drop,
    then jump off after you collect the coins. The end of the level is right ahead.
    
    -Item Locations-
    ~Stars:
     *There's a Star Cloud right before the ascent, above some Donut Lifts.
     *The Middle Ring is at the middle of the ascent (to the left).
     *On the second half of the ascent, a wily Flying Shy Guy will drop down
      with a Star Cloud in his paws. Grab it before he flies away.
     *At the top of the ascent is a final Star Cloud.
     *Behind the Goal Ring, you'll find a Hidden Star Cloud.
    ~Red Coins:
     *There's two Red Coins on the first Rotating Platform, at 9:00 and 3:00
      (if it were a clock).
     *There's two more Red Coins on the second Rotating Platform, at 4:00
      and 8:00 (if it were a clock).
     *A Flying Shy Guy above the first Self-Rotating Platform carries a Red
      Coin.
     *Ride the Self-Rotating Platform and you'll get two Red Coins along the
      way.
     *Ride the second Self-Rotating platform and you'll get five Red Coins
      along the way.
     *On the second half of the ascent, look for two cross-shaped coin
      formations. In the center of each one is a Red Coin.
     *At the top of the ascent and a little to the right is a Flying Shy Guy
      that carries a Red Coin.
     *Below the final Donut Lifts are five Red Coins. Let the Donut Lifts
      fall and you can grab them (do two at once).
    ~Flowers:
     *The first Flower is between the first two Rotating Platforms. Wait for
      the moving Platform to move onto it, or shoot an egg at it.
     *The second Flower is found at the end of the first Rotating Platform's
      path.
     *The third Flower is on the first half of the ascent, in plain view
      (it's next to the red platform).
     *Look for the fourth Flower at the end of the second Rotating
      Platform's path.
     *The last Flower is surrounded by dirt at the end of the level (above
      the Donut Lifts). Shoot an egg to get it.

    ~LEVEL 1-6: SHY GUYS ON STILTS~
    Type: Normal/Underground   Difficulty: Easy       Yoshi Color: Brown
    No. of Coins: 55           No. of Stars: 28       No. of "?" Clouds: 6
    Enemies: Stilt Shy Guy, Shy Guy, Lantern Ghoul, Piranha Plant, Cave Bat
    Mini-Games: None
    Transformations: Mole Tank
    
    -Level Walkthrough-
    This level is another pretty standard level. Start by moving over to the left,
    where a huge mountain will block your path. Use the Large Arrow Ball to spring
    up to the door on the cloud. Inside, pick up the eggs, and shoot the Flashing
    one at one of the Shy Guys to release the coin within (it's best to do this
    now). Now go back outside and go into the pipe. You'll tumble down into a cave.
    Make your way to where the Lantern Ghoul pipe is, then look up to find a Large
    Arrow Ball being held up by a balloon. Shoot it down, then bounce up. In the
    long line of coins are four Red Coins. Instead of reaching the ledge, fall down
    near the wall to drop onto a Flower. Bounce back up and take the yellow
    platform out of the cave. Don't jump off when you emerge. Ride it up to the
    top, where three Red Coins wait. Now you can jump down, where a Middle Ring,
    Star Cloud, and several Stilt Shy Guys are located. A little ways down is a
    tulip flower, and a post. Defeat the Stilt Shy Guys first, then pound down the
    post. Follow the coins to a Flower and a Red Coin. Over the next hill is a pit.
    Destroy the Piranha Plant on the left, then grab the two Red Coins and the
    Flower in between the posts (pound them down). Now, shoot the "?" Cloud above,
    and a Switch will drop. Activate it, then warp into the hidden area on the
    right side of the pit. Inside is another "?" Cloud. Shoot it to reveal to Mole
    Tank transformation. Use this to dig through the dirt. The leftmost and
    rightmost coins on the top are Red Coins, but your main priority should be
    reaching the Yoshi block. You can always collect the coins with eggs later. Use
    the pipe to go back up when you're done. To the right of the pit, jump on top
    of the face block, and jump into the air to reach the fourth Flower. Now
    continue down the path and into the cave. In here, use the red platform to
    rocket to the top of the mushroom area. Up here, aim an egg at the line of
    coins to make a couple bank shots and get the Flower and six Red Coins up
    there. Jump back down and head over to the right. Hit the "?" Cloud to make the
    seed drop. There's two Red Coins above the flower. Bounce on the Large Arrow
    Ball to go outside. A final "?" Cloud out there contains five more stars. It's
    just a few steps away from the finish now.
    
    -Item Locations-
    ~Stars:
     *After you exit the first cave, a little ways down the path is the
      Middle Ring.
     *Right next to the Middle Ring is a Star Cloud.
     *A little ways past the Middle Ring is a Star Tulip.
     *After exiting the second cave, a Star Cloud is right above.
    ~Red Coins
     *Shoot the Flashing Egg found in the cloud door (bounce up from the
      Large Arrow Ball at the level's beginning) at an enemy to get a Red
      Coin.
     *In the first cave, the line of coins that you follow while bouncing
      off the Large Arrow Ball contains four Red Coins.
     *After exiting the first cave, stay of the Guided Platform and at the
      end of the path are three Red Coins.
     *One Red Coin resides next to the level's third Flower, which is under
      the first post.
     *In the pit with the Piranha Plant are two Red Coins.
     *In the Mole Tank area (shoot the "?" Cloud above the pit and trip the
      switch), collect the coins on the top right and top left. You may want
      to get to the Yoshi block first and then get them with eggs, but you
      have plenty of time.
     *In the final cave, go to the top (via the red platform) and shoot an
      egg at the line of coins to get five Red Coins.
     *At the far right of the second cave is a grouping of coins, two of
      which are Red Coins.
    ~Flowers:
     *The first Flower is found on the right side of the first cave. Bounce
      off either the Large or the Small Arrow Ball there to reach it.
     *The second Flower is after the exit to the first cave. Pound the post
      underneath the Star Tulip, then run to the right to find the Flower.
     *The third Flower is in the pit after the second. Pound down the posts
      to reach it.
     *After the pit, jump on the Face Block to reach the fourth Flower
      sitting high in the air (or use an egg).
     *The last Flower is at the top of the second cave (reach it by riding
      the red platform). Use bank shots off the walls to get it (aim at the
      line of coins).
    
    -1-Up Locations-
     *At the beginning of the level, use the Large Arrow Ball to reach the
      top of the mountain. Over to the left is a Hidden Cloud, which
      contains a 1-Up.
     *A 1-Up balloon rests after the Bonus Ring at the levels end. Eat it to
      receive the 1-Up.

    ~LEVEL 1-7: TOUCH FUZZY, GET DIZZY~
    Type: Normal/Forest   Difficulty: Easy          Yoshi Color: Red
    No. of Coins: 79      No. of Stars: 25          No. of "?" Clouds: 5
    Enemies: Fuzzy, Rolly Bug, Tap-Tap, Red-Nosed Tap-Tap, Piranha Plant,
             Big Flower, Flowerbed Shy Guy, Mini Milde, Singing Flower
    Mini-Games: Gather Coins
    Transformations: None
    
    -Level Layout-
    
    Rolly Bug Area ---> Dirt Area ---> Fuzzy Area ---> Bridge Area ---> Goal
    
    -Level Walkthrough-
    This level introduces some of the more bizarre characters in Yoshi's Island,
    but still isn't that tough to finish. The first Flower is easily visible
    between two logs near the start of the level. The easiest way to get it is to
    spit one of nearby Rolly Bugs into it. Continue down the path, and use a Rolly
    Bug to destroy the line of Tap-Taps marching up the hill. Soon you'll come to
    an area filled with yellowish dirt, and a Mini-Game Hut. Right above the Hut is
    a Flower, surrounded by dirt. Sure, you can waste eggs, but why not use the
    Watermelon that's hanging on a nearby vine to shred through the dirt? Collect
    the Flower and pick up the Flashing eggs to either side of it (the best enemy
    to use them on are the Tap-Taps a little further down the path). Shoot the dirt
    above the Flower, and you'll uncover a "?" Cloud which contains the Key to the
    Hut. Enter and play the Gather Coins Mini-Game. Exit the Hut and continue on.
    In the dirt past the Tap-Taps are two Red Coins. After the coins and the Shy
    Guy pipe is the Middle Ring. Stock up on eggs, then jump down the opening in
    the ground (collect the Flower) and enter the Fuzzy area. Try not to hit any
    Fuzzies, as you'll get very dizzy. While this probably won't mean doom in this
    stage, it is annoying and may prevent you from getting items for a while.
    There's a Green Egg Block up ahead, so don't be stingy with the eggs. At the
    beginning of the Fuzzy area are three Red Coins. In the middle of this area is
    a small pit with a Flower in it. Right past it is a Piranha Plant with two Red
    Coins above it. Also in the middle is a Star Cloud. Near the end of the Fuzzy
    area is a long patch of coins, with a Flower above the center. Shoot an egg at
    it to collect it. When the Fuzzies stop coming, you'll see an island with two
    Mini Mildes on it. After it is a Star Cloud. Enter the next area, where some
    sagging bridges will let you collect two Red Coins (both before and after the
    log in the center). To get the three Red Coins under the log, pound the bridge
    and it'll collapse. To find the last few Red Coins, stand on top of the log.
    Get out an egg and aim straight up, then fire. A Small Arrow Ball will fall
    down. Use it to bounce up to a hidden area. Up here, go to the left. There's a
    Chomp Rock here, but it's right up a against the wall. Stand on the very right
    edge of the Rock, and it'll begin to slowly move. Once it's away from the wall,
    get on the other side and push. Soon it'll activate a Hidden Cloud. Shoot it
    for a Growing Flower to grow. Climb up the leaves to the clouds above, where
    four Red Coins and a Star Cloud wait. Jump back down and enter the pipe to exit
    the hidden area, then head to the nearby exit.
    
    -Item Locations-
    ~Stars:
     *The Middle Ring after the dirt area will boost your Star score by 10.
     *In the middle of the Fuzzy area floats a Star Cloud.
     *After the Fuzzy area and before the final bridge area is a Star Cloud.
     *Up in the clouds (see Hidden Stuff) is a Star Cloud.
    ~Red Coins:
     *The two Flashing eggs above the Mini-Game Hut in the dirt area contain
      Red Coins. Shoot them at the nearby Tap-Taps to get them.
     *In the dirt past the Mini-Game Hut are two visible coins. Shoot
      through the dirt with eggs or Watermelon seeds to get them, as they
      are Red Coins.
     *Near the beginning the Fuzzy area are three Red Coins.
     *Above the Piranha Plant in the Fuzzy Area sit two Red Coins.
     *Under the first and third bridges in the bridge area are two Red
      Coins.
     *Pound the second bridge in the bridge area to get the three Red Coins
      underneath.
     *In the hidden area (see Hidden Stuff) are four Red Coins.
    ~Flowers:
     *The first of the Flowers is in between two logs in the Rolly Bug area.
      Shoot an egg at it or spit a Rolly Bug into it to collect it.
     *The second Flower sits happily above the Mini-Game Hut.
     *The third Flower is in the opening in the ground that is the entrance
      to the Fuzzy area. It's actually harder NOT to collect this.
     *The fourth Flower is easily seen in a small pit in the Fuzzy area.
     *The fifth Flower is high above the path of coins at the end of the
      Fuzzy area. Shoot an egg up to grab it.
    
    -1-Up Locations-
     *A Flying Shy Guy will appear above the Mini Milde island (after the
      Fuzzy area) with a 1-Up. Grab it before he flies away.
    
    -Hidden Stuff-
     *To reach the hidden area that contains four Red Coins and a Star
      Cloud, head to the final bridge area. Stand on the log in the center
      and take out an egg. Aim straight up, and fire. A Small Arrow Ball
      will come falling down. use it to reach the hidden area. However, the
      items that you want are up in the clouds. To get there, head to the
      left and stand on the right edge of the Chomp Rock. It'll roll over,
      eventually hitting a Hidden Cloud which contains a seed that'll plant
      a Growing Flower that will give you access to the clouds.

    -Castle Layout-
    
    Roller Area ---> Sewer Area ---> Spike Platform Area --->
    Arrow Globe Area ---> Boss
    
    -Level Walkthrough-
    The first area is filled with Red Coins, so grab any that you can see. There's
    two above the first Roller, two under the Self Rotating Platform's starting
    position, two above the second Roller, six above the third Roller, and finally
    one last one high above the third Roller (jump up near the wall). Right to the
    left of the last coin mentioned is a Flower, too. Now enter the pipe at the end
    of this area and enter the sewer area. Jump on the Ghost Platform in the center
    as soon as you can, and grab the Flower at the very top center. Then leap over
    to the left and go into the room, where another Flower awaits. Finally, flutter
    jump over to the other side and enter the room to fins two Red Coins, a Middle
    Ring, and a Star Cloud. Now go back into the sewer area and enter the pipe on
    the bottom left. Now you're in the Spike Platform area. Run over to the very
    right to get the fourth Flower. Head back to the green Spike Platform and use
    it reach the path above (there's a Star Cloud here). Go to the very top of the
    room, and hit the red Platform Switch. Now jump to the bottom, and use the
    now-turned-over red Spike Platform (which has three Red Coins above it, by the
    way) to get to the Rotating Platforms. Above it is a pot. Push it off the ledge
    to get the key inside. Jump out of the top of this enclosed area and head to
    the right. On top is the last Flower, while under it is a door that leads to
    the next area. Run across the Spike platforms to collect two Red Coins and
    reach the door. Inside, use the Arrow Globe to get to the top of the room.
    Activate the Middle Ring, then enter the Boss door.
    
    -BOSS: Salvo the Slime-
    Salvo the Slime is harmless. In fact, he can't hurt you at all. Only his little
    slime buddies can (and the lava at the end of the arena). Shoot an egg through
    his slimy body to knock part of it off. Some of those little parts will turn
    into Slimes, which you can eat to get more eggs. Keep shooting eggs at him and
    eventually he'll be so small that he'll disappear. Victory!

    Enemies: Bullet Bill, Cave Bats, Spiked Ball & Chain, Tap-Taps
    Mini-Games: None
    Transformations: None
    
    -Level Walkthrough-
    Trust me, you'll be thinking the exact opposite of what this level's called
    once you've played it. This is one of the most difficult levels in the game.
    It's a self-scrolling lava world, and the only way to get past the fields of
    magma is to ride the reckless Poochy. If you want to complete this level, you'd
    better get used to controlling Poochy. Tap the direction you want to go in, and
    if you don't want to go fast (this is common in a self-scrolling level like
    this), just tap the opposite direction, and keep switching to stay in
    relatively the same place. OK, now onto the level. Shoot the Star Cloud at the
    beginning, then head over to the end of the screen to get the level to start
    scrolling. Along the opening stretch are a bunch of Cave Bats, which can be
    easily eaten for eggs. After you cross the first field of lava, you'll see
    another Star Cloud. Not far after another Star Cloud will come into view (if
    you think this is a lot, this is just the beginning of this level's Star
    Clouds). Right after the third Star Cloud is the first Flower, and then you'll
    reach a hill. On the way up, there's a Star Cloud, and on the way down is a
    Flower in a pit. Have Poochy jump down into it to get it, or fire an egg. At
    the end of the hill is a drop off and a Bullet Bill cannon. Stomp the incoming
    Bullet Bill and use the momentum to jump above it (follow the row of coins, why
    includes six Red Coins), where a - guess what? - Star Cloud awaits. Continue to
    follow the line of coins and you'll run into a Flower. During this leap
    downwards, you must use the flutter jump to give Poochy time to find your
    position (so you can land on him). Next is another hill, and a bunch of bats
    will fly by to replenish your egg supply. Above the hill is a Star Cloud, and
    on the way down there's two Red coins in a pit of lava (use Poochy or eggs to
    get them). At the end of the hilly area is another Flower. Next is the tough
    part. A Spiked Ball & Chain spins right above the lava, and you not only have
    to get under it, but get under it when the screen scrolls far enough so you can
    get out of the way. If you duck, you can avoid the spikes in most places. Under
    the SB&C itself are three Red Coins, and right past it four Red Coins, a
    Flower, and two Star Clouds. The final part of the level is a drop down to the
    goal. Jump off Poochy and follow the line of coins (all five are Red Coins) to
    it.
    
    -Item Locations-
    ~Stars:
     *Star Clouds galore! They're everywhere in this level, and all easily
      visible. Any "?" Cloud you see is a Star Cloud. To reach the 30 star
      target, get the Star Cloud at the level's opening, the one after the
      first lava field, the one on the hill, and the one above the Bullet
      Bill cannon. There's also one on the Cave Bat hill, and two after the
      Spiked Ball & Chain at the level's end.
    ~Red Coins:
     *There's six Red Coins in the line of coins above the Bullet Bill
      cannon. Bounce off Bill's head to reach them.
     *On the Cave Bat hill, there's a small pit in which two Red Coins lie.
      Ride Poochy into it or shoot an egg to get them.
     *Under the Spiked Ball & Chain are three Red Coins.
     *After the Spiked Ball & Chain are four Red Coins.
     *At the end of the level is a row of five Red Coins leading to the exit.
    ~Flowers:
     *The first Flower is found after the third Star Cloud, above the lava.
     *The second Flower is on the other side of the first hill, in a small
      pit. Ride Poochy or shoot an egg to get it.
     *The third Flower is at the end of the line of coins above the Bullet
      Bill cannon. Bounce off the Bullet Bill to jump over the rock
      formation.
     *The fourth Flower is at the end of the hilly, Cave Bat area.
     *The last Flower can be found after the Spiked Ball & Chain, right in
      the air. Shoot an egg if you're too scared to risk jumping.

    Type: Normal          Difficulty: Easy          Yoshi Color: Green
    No. of Coins: 251     No. of Stars: 27          No. of "?" Clouds: 2
    Enemies: Koopa, Para-Koopa, Tap-Tap, Big Flower, Flying Shy Guy, Shy Guy
    Mini-Games: Popping Balloons
    Transformations: None
    
    -Level Layout-
    
    Koopa Area ---> Poochy Area ---> Crushing Block Area --->
    Flower Area ---> Balloon Area ---> Falling Block Area ---> Goal
    
    -Level Walkthrough-
    The level begins in a area filled with Koopas and Falling Blocks above a
    bottomless pit. Keep moving until you see a pipe on the right side of one of
    the islands. Go down, and grab the Super Mario Star inside to transform into...
    da da dah daaah!... SUPER BABY MARIO!!! Run up the wall and into the room with
    a bunch of coins. At the bottom is another star. Replenish your powers with it,
    the run up along the right wall. Keep running, over the coins (unless you want
    to collect a few) and past the star, then drop down into the opening. Keep
    running, and at the end of the path is a Flower. After you get it, warp back up
    the pipe. Above it and to the right a little bit is another Flower. Stand on
    the tall Falling Block to get it. Keep going left, and collect the four Red
    Coins above the Falling Blocks, then stand on the last Block to fall into the
    two Red Coins below it. Warp down the pipe ahead to enter the Poochy Area.
    Inside, jump on Poochy and tap right to speed across the field and over the
    spikes. When you get to the tall mound, let Poochy jump, then jump off of him
    to clear it. On the other side are four Red Coins and a Crate containing a Key.
    Head back and warp up the second pipe. Go through the Middle Ring and then
    bounce off the Large Arrow Ball. You'll now be in the Crushing Block area,
    where a bunch of Falling Blocks will fall down to the earth. Don't get stuck
    under them, or you'll die. At the top is a Flower, which you should grab before
    a final Falling Block covers it. Head over to the right, and stand on one of
    the gray blocks to either side of the Big Flower. As it falls, eat or shoot the
    Flying shy Guys to collect the four Red Coins they have. If you miss any, you
    can always go back up and try again. When you've got them all, head down to the
    right where a bunch of balloons will float overhead. Two crates are among the
    carried objects, each containing six stars. When the balloons stop, quickly
    head over to the right and grab the Flower near the wall, then get out of the
    way of the Falling Blocks above. Use them to climb to the top of the wall,
    where you'll see more Falling Blocks. Jump across them in the air, and if they
    haven't fallen too far, you can reach the final Flower above. Right to the
    right of it is a Hidden Cloud containing five Stars. Drop down through the
    Blockers, then run across the Falling Blocks, collecting the six Red Coins
    strewn about. The exit is just ahead, and the Mini-Game hut (which you can play
    Popping Balloons in) is right before it.
    
    -Item Locations-
    ~Stars:
     *A Middle Ring is found right after you leave the Poochy area.
     *Two crates (containing six stars each) float above the ground in the
      balloon area.
     *A Star Cloud is found right to the right of the last Flower (a Hidden
      Cloud).
    ~Red Coins:
     *Six Red Coins are near the end of the Koopa area (where you start
      out), four above the Falling Blocks (get them before they fall) and
      two are below (grab them when the block falls).
     *Four Red Coins are at the very right end of the Poochy area. Ride
      Poochy to get them.
     *Four Red Coins are carried by Flying Shy Guys that float beneath the
      first Big Flower. Stand on one of the Falling Blocks to drop by them.
     *Six Red Coins are along the final long set of Falling Blocks.
    ~Flowers:
     *The first Flower is found inside the first pipe (in the middle of the
      Koopa area). Grab the Super Mario Star inside and continue going right
      (you'll eventually turn around), and just follow the path to the
      Flower.
     *Flower two is right after the first pipe, above a tall Falling Block.
     *The third Flower is on the top of the Crushing Block area. Grab it
      quickly when you reach the top or a final Falling Block will cover it
      up.
     *The fourth Flower is to the right of the Balloon area, against a wall.
      Grab it before the Falling Blocks above cover it up.
     *The final Flower can be reached by jumping across the Falling Blocks
      high in the air. Go fast and you can reach it.
    
    -1-Up Locations-
     *Right after the second Flower you'll see a "?" Cloud under a block. To
      get it, slurp up a Koopa and spit it out onto the block before it. The
      shell should hit it.
     *Right at the end of the Balloon area, a Flying Shy Guy will float down
      for a couple seconds. Grab the 1-Up he carries before he flies away.

    Starting Area (Field Area) ---> Super Baby Mario Area --->
    Baseball Boy Clouds Area ---> Cave Maze 1 ---> Cave Maze 2 ---> Goal
    
    -Level Walkthrough-
    The Baseball Boys are unique enemies, and you'll get to meet them for the first
    time in this level, as well as Cactus Plants and Cave Mice. Head down the
    tunnel at the beginning, and fire at the "?" Cloud. The barrier in front of you
    will move down, and right on the other side is the first Flower. Further down
    the path are four Cactus Plants. Above the first one are two Red Coins, and two
    more Red Coins float above the second. Burst open the cloud above the third to
    get a 1-Up. Nothing is over the last one. At the end of the path is a Shy Guy
    pipe and a "?" Cloud. Stock up on eggs and shoot the cloud to make a Growing
    Flower grow. Climb up and head to the right and up the chamber. At the very top
    are two Flying Shy Guys with Red Coins. Jump down the opening to the right,
    then head down the stairs (there are two Red Coins on the way down). Drop off
    the end and shoot the Arrow Cloud to get the  Super Mario Star out of its
    prison. Collect it, then follow the arrows and over the spikes that were
    impassable before. Right after the spikes is a Middle Ring. In the "?" Cloud
    behind the first Pitcher is a Flower. Destroy the Pitcher with three stomps or
    any remaining Super Baby Mario power, then collect the prize. Above the second
    Pitcher are two Red Coins. At the end, there's three coins above deadly spikes,
    which require some slick thinking to get. Toss an egg at the Pitcher on the
    spikes, then jump and dash over to behind him. When he throws, he'll throw the
    egg right through the coins, collecting the Red Coin there. In this next area,
    bounce up to the ledge on the Large Arrow Ball. On the very bottom left is a
    Middle Ring. Climb up on top of and through the insides of the square
    formations to reach the top. Inside a few of the formations are a Red Coin, a
    Star Cloud, and a flower. Search around to find them. To help you get to some
    (and the exit), bounce on the Large Arrow Ball on the middle left (above the
    Middle ring's cave). Now you'll enter the first Cave Maze. At the first branch,
    head upward to find a Red Coin. Head back and go down. At the next branch, go
    left to find a Flower. Take the last route to exit the cave. Soon you'll come
    to the second Cave Maze. at the beginning is a "?" Cloud. Shoot it to reveal a
    Mole Tank transformation. Tunnel through the dirt to find three Red coins. Now
    you'll come to the maze. Head to the right first. For this path head to the
    right at every branch. On the first branch, go to the end to find a Red Coin,
    and do the same for the next branch down. The third branch down, go right and
    you will find a 1-Up. Head left to find a Red Coin in between two Tap-Taps,
    then head back up to the top and take the left path. For this side, head to the
    left at every branch to find an item, then go down. The first left branch will
    lead to a Crate, the second will lead to nothing, the third to a Red coin, and
    the last a Star Cloud. Head right on the final branch to enter a large room
    with a Star Tulip in the center. Spit the nearby Shy Guy into it to reap the
    rewards. Then drop down below it. Outside,

     *One Red Coin can be found above the second Pitcher in the Baseball Boy
      Cloud area.
     *At the end of the Baseball Boy Cloud area is a Pitcher standing on
      Spikes, with a Red Coin behind him. Throw an egg at him, then leap
      over the mound and behind him. When he throws, he'll hit the cloud,
      getting you a 1-Up.
     *In the area which the second middle ring is in, search inside the
      floating formations to find a Red Coin (it's in the middle-left part).
     *Find one Red Coin in the Cave Maze 1 by going up at the first branch.
     *At the beginning of the Cave Maze 2, burst open the "?" Cloud and use
      the Mole Tank transformation to collect the three Red Coins in the
      dirt.
     *In the Cave Maze 2, there are Red Coins (one each) at the end of the
      following paths: right, right; right, down, right; left, down, down,

     *The fourth Flower is in the first Cave Maze. Go down, and left to
      locate it.
     *The fifth Flower can be found below the lowest Piranha Plant in the
      final, hilly area of Cave Maze 2. Drop out the opening and shoot and
      egg off the wall to hit it. This is hard because you'll be bouncing
      on a Arrow Ball at the time.
    
    -1-Up Locations-
     *Above the third Cactus Plant is a "?" Cloud containing a 1-Up.
     *At the end of the Baseball Boy Cloud area is a Pitcher standing on

    Transformations: Mole Tank
    
    -Level Layout-
    
    Gusty Area ---> Dirt Area ---> Cave Area ---> Chomp Rock Area ---> Goal
    
    -Level Walkthrough-
    This level starts off in a lush Forest, then takes the underworld of Cave Bats,
    Lantern Ghouls, and Mole Tanks. The first thing of interest is a Red Coin found
    after the group of outline coins. A little ways down the path is a Flower above
    the first pit. After this is a Star Cloud, above the smallish hill. The last
    coin in the following row is a Red Coin. Continue to find a "?" Cloud in a pit.
    Shoot it to uncover a Flower. After the Flower is a line of coins, one of which
    is a Red Coin (above this is a Star Cloud). Now, warp down the pipe and enter
    the Dirt area. The level's Middle Ring awaits in here, as well as a Lantern
    Ghoul pipe. Maximize your egg count, then start your way through the dirt (by
    shooting eggs to clear it). After the first wall of dirt are two Red Coins.
    Near the end of the dirt area are a bunch of thin dirt walls. In between a
    couple are two Red Coins. At the end of the Dirt area, Cave Bats will begin to
    swoop down. Replenish your egg supply, and destroy the large section of dirt
    (behind the left side of the dirt is a Star Cloud). Head out into the Cave
    area, and down the "steps". Above the steps is a Flying Shy Guy carrying a Red
    Coin. There's also one underneath the Flying Shy Guy. In the first cave are
    three clouds. The first is a Star Cloud, the second makes a coin appear, and
    the third contains a Flower. Jump down below to collect the Super Mario Star,
    and run down the path, destroying the Bats and Land Goonies. In the line of
    coins is a Red Coin. When the power wears off, go down and to the left. In this
    massive dirt area, shoot an egg diagonally up to form a staircase. Climb up to
    the top. In the middle of the top is a Flower. Also in this dirt area is a Star
    Cloud (the lower middle area) and a "?" Cloud (the middle left area) containing
    a Switch. Hit it, the enter the secret area to the left. Inside are ten Red
    Coins guarded by an angry Nep-enut, so be sure to come prepared with eggs. Head
    out of the big dirt area and to the left now. in the dirt near the Watermelons
    is a Star Cloud. Cross the pit proceeding it and shoot the "?" Cloud to uncover
    a Mole Tank. Head into the dirt area to the right and go towards the Yoshi
    block above. When you transform back, grab the key. Head back up to where the
    Super Mario Star power ended, and use the falling Chomp Rock to reach the
    Mini-Game Hut (you will play Throwing Balloons). When you finish, head back
    past where you picked up the key and shoot the dirt above to let the Large
    Arrow Ball drop. To the left of where you bounce up is a Flower. Now, simply
    head to the right, pound the dirt to get to the Chomp Rock, and start pushing
    it. It'll protect you all the way to the end of the level.
    
    -Item Locations-
    ~Stars:
     *After the first Flower, look for a "?" Cloud containing stars.
     *After the second Flower, look for a "?" Cloud above a line of coins.

      dirt near the end.
     *After the Dirt area, look for a Flying Shy Guy carrying a Red Coin
      while going down the "steps". Underneath him is another Red Coin.
     *Right after you change into Super Baby Mario, you'll come to a line
      of coins on the ground. One is a Red Coin.
     *In the large dirt area (after the Super Mario Star), clear out the
      dirt on the left to find a "?" Cloud. Inside is a switch. Stomp it and
      warp down into the secret area on the left. Inside are ten Red Coins.
    ~Flowers:

      jump to the left to find the last Flower.
    
    -1-Up Locations-
     *After the first Star Cloud, a Flying Shy Guy will float down with a
      1-Up in hand.
     *When you transform into the Mole Tank, head to the left instead of the
      right. You'll into the pit and underneath the ground. At the end,
      you'll emerge in a cavern where a 1-Up balloon floats. Just wait for
      the timer to run out and you'll be safely transported back.
    
    -Hidden Stuff-
     *In the last (the highest) of the three rectangular dirt patches at the
      beginning of the level is a "?" Cloud. Pound the dirt to uncover it,
      then fire an egg at it to make the Switch inside fall to earth. Stomp
      it, and to the left (between the two logs) all the outlined coins will
      turn into coins.

    -Level Layout-
    
    Lava Area ---> Staircase Area ---> Boo Area ---> Bigger Boo
    
    -Level Walkthrough-
    This level isn't very big, but getting through it will still take some time. In
    the Lava area, bounce eggs off the walls to destroy the Boos and collect stars.
    Above the first row of blocks that materialize when you hit the switch is a
    Flower. At the end of the Lava area are four Red Coins in groups of two. Enter
    the pipe to go to the Staircase area. In here, shoot the "?" Cloud furthest
    right (as far as you can go) and enter the door that comes out of it. Inside,
    defeat the two Boos and a Flower will appear. Head back out and shoot the "?"
    Cloud to the left. A staircase will appear (also shoot an egg at the coins
    beneath it to collect three Red Coins). Climb it and go to the left, where eggs
    and a Star Cloud wait. Jump onto the yellow Guided platform above it, and
    collect the coins along the path (two of which are Red Coins). At the end of
    the path, jump into the upper path. Follow it down, then jump down the opening
    and to the right. Trip the switch, then jump down and go to the right. Shoot an
    egg at the line of coins to collect them and the Key inside the "?" Cloud. Now
    head down to the left. Jump onto the yellow Guided Platform again, but this
    time go into the locked door at the end of the route. Inside is a room filled
    with Boos. Destroy them if you'd like. There are four Red Coins in the middle
    of this room, three Red Coins in the top/middle portion, and a Flower in the
    top/right portion. Head into the pipe in the top/left portion to exit. Smash
    the crate blocking the path (collect the stars), then ride the yellow Guided
    Platform one last time. This time, the stairs you created before are gone, and
    you can jump into the middle path. At the start of the path is a Middle Ring,
    as well as a Flower. Hit the switch and run across the bridge of blocks, then
    go into the pipe at the end. Now you're in the Boo area. The first group of two
    coins are Red Coins, as well as the third. In the middle of the room is a block
    in the ceiling that's cracked. Break it apart with an egg, then jump into it
    and head to the left. Fall down at the end and go into the door. Inside, shoot
    one of the Balloon Boos three times to make a switch fall down. Stomp it and
    jump up to the upper left part of the room to collect a Flower (this room will
    also be filled with coins!). Leave the room and head to the end of the Boo
    area. At the start of the next room is a Middle Ring. It's just a little ways
    to the boss now.
    
    -BOSS: Bigger Boo-
    Bigger Boo doesn't look too intimidating at first, but soon he'll grow into a
    gigantic foe that'll take up nearly half of the room. Fortunately, Bigger Boo
    suffers from the fear that all Boos have, and will turn transparent when you
    face him. Eat the Bats that fly by to make eggs, then turn away from Bigger
    Boo, wait for him to materialize, then bounce an egg off the wall and hit him.
    Five hits will destroy him.

    Mini-Games: None
    Transformations: Train
    
    -Level Layout-
    
    Lakitu Sky Area ---> Lakitu Ground Area ---> Goal
    
    -Level Walkthrough-
    In this level, you'll be introduced to the pesky Lakitu. In most cases, eat his
    cloud as soon as he appears to get rid of him. When the level begins, pound
    down the first post to find a Red Coin. At the end of the first Teetering Log
    is another Red Coin. Stock up on eggs from the Egg Flower above the dirt, then
    continue on. The last coin above the fourth Teetering Log is a Red Coin. Now,
    you'll come to several long stretches of dirt. Above the first is a Flying Shy
    Guy with a Red Coin. After it is a "?" Cloud in the air, which contains a
    Flower. Following the Flower is a Star Tulip. Spit one of the Shy Guys, or even
    better a shell into it to collect the stars. Continue on and through the
    tunnel. Right outside the exit of the tunnel is a Star Cloud. In the air here
    is a line of dirt, with coins above it. Two of them are Red Coins. Either send
    a few eggs through the dirt or clear the wall of dirt on the right side and
    jump up to the line from the dirt "stairs" surrounding the crate. Try not to
    hit any shells, except when clearing the dirt around the crate. Do so with
    shells and eggs, then push the crate over to the platform to the right (there's
    two Red coins above it). If you accidentally shot the dirt away to the right of
    it, stomp the right side and the key will fly to the left. Pick it up, the
    shoot an egg through the dirt to the right to collect a Flower. Above this
    Flower is a Star Cloud. Continue, and right before the Catching Cactus is a Red
    Coin. Eat the Mini-Cactus that is being thrown, then jump over the Catching
    Cactus. Enter the Locked door to the right of it and transform into a Train.
    The only collectible item on the tracks is a Flower. Head to the top, then take
    the middle path to get it. Exit, and push the Chomp Rock over to the right to
    provide a step up to the door. Now you'll be in the Lakitu Ground area. At the
    beginning of the area are two Red Coins, and just beyond them two Quick Flying
    Shy Guys (each with a Red Coin) will float down for a second and quickly leave.
    There's also a Star Cloud in this beginning section. Now, head to the right,
    and bounce up the Small Arrow Ball. Before the Bubble Flower are two more Quick
    Flying Shy Guys. Grab the Red Coins they carry fast. Right after the Bubble
    Flower is another one. Right after this guy is a "?" Cloud containing a Flower,
    and right after that is a Star Cloud. When the Round Cactus falls from the sky,
    knock him away and pound down the posts underneath him to find a Red Coin. Now
    you're near the end. Bounce up to the "?" Cloud between the raised ground and
    break it open to uncover a Flower. Also here is a Star Cloud, a Red Coin, a Red
    Coin in the post, and a Flying Shy Guy carrying a Red Coin. Continue to the end
    (don't go into the gray-colored bush, a Bandit lurks there).

      wall of dirt away first) to collect them.
     *Above the platform (where you push the crate to) are two Red Coins.
     *There's a Red Coin right before the Catching Cactus.

     *At the end of the Lakitu Sky Area is a Chomp Rock. Instead of pushing
      it to the right, push it to the left. A Hidden cloud will appear on
      the little wooden pole at the end. Shoot it to receive a 1-Up.
     *Pound the posts under the level's first Round Cactus to find a Hidden
      Cloud. Inside is a 1-Up.
    
    -Hidden Stuff-
     *In the Lakitu Ground area, head to an elevated area (a Small Arrow
      Ball, where the first Bubble Flower is). Stomp Lakitu when he comes
      down, and use his cloud to fly up to the top left corner of this area.
      Pound down the post here two times (no more!), then enter the small
      cave. A Hidden Cloud is inside. Shoot it, and stomp the switch. Use
      the remaining elevation of the post to jump above the cave, and warp
      into a Hidden area. This place is filled with coins.

    -Level Walkthrough-
    Despite its title, this level isn't really much of a maze. At the start, head
    right, collect the yellow eggs, then pound down the dirt (near the left wall).
    Soon you'll come to an opening on the left. Go in to get two Red Coins.
    Continue pounding down the dirt along the right wall, and you'll come to
    another opening, this one containing a Flower and two Red Coins. Follow the
    path down, and go to the right. Shoot an egg at the Arrow Cloud to clear the
    dirt away and collect a 1-Up. Head into the area that was just cleared away,

    Wall Lakitu Area ---> Car Area ---> Goal
    
    -Level Walkthrough-
    This level is the only level to feature the Car transformation, which is
    actually quite fun to use. Right near the start of the level are two egg
    blocks, one red and one yellow. Instead of collecting them, use them to jump up
    to the ledge above. Up here is a Flower. There's also a "?" Cloud. Before
    shooting it, pound down the post and collect the Red Coin hidden in it. Now
    shoot the "?" Cloud, and it'll form a bridge. As you cross, three Flying shy
    Guys will drop down carrying Red Coins. Quickly grab them. The area up ahead is
    filled with Wall Lakitus, so be careful (you may want to use a Sumo egg to rid
    them from the area and get some stars). At the beginning of this area is a Star
    Cloud, and further down is a Red Coin. Proceed to the very end and make your
    way to the Rotating Platform. Above it is a Star Cloud, and to the right is the
    key to the Mini-Game Hut you passed earlier. Play the Gather Coins mini-game,
    then head back to the egg blocks that you came up on. Head down the path until
    you reach the first dirt mound. Jump up and to the right to find a Flower. In
    the right post underneath it is a Red Coin as well. Continue down the path
    until you reach the Bullet Bill cannons. Wait for them to fire, then start
    pounding down the posts. Watch for them to begin firing again, and at that
    moment get out of the way. Inside the posts are two Red Coins. Pounding them
    down will also let you get to the next part of the level (and a Middle Ring).
    Enter the door underneath the Middle Ring. Inside, walk over to the very left,
    and use a Sumo egg to destroy the Tap Tap. Now you can reach the Flower it was
    guarding. Enter the door to the right of the Flower, and head into the pipe. In
    this place, quickly run across the Falling Blocks, and if you're fast enough,
    at the end you'll be able to reach the two Red Coins on the high ledge. Go into
    the next pipe, and pound down the posts to the right of the Big Flower to find
    a Red Coin. To the left of the Big Flower are five posts. The middle (third)
    one contains a Red Coin. Bounce off the Large Arrow Ball here and to the right.
    You'll land on some Clouds. Jump to the leftmost one, the leap all the way to
    the leftmost side of this area. Over here is a Hidden Cloud on the wooden pole.
    Shoot it to uncover a switch, then follow the arrow. In this area, pound the
    dirt in the second from the left column and you'll go through a Flower. Go into
    the pipe at the bottom and you'll come back to the Post Area. You'll drop down
    onto a platform that has two Red Coins above it. Now head back to the right,
    and you'll come a cross a Flying Shy Guy with a Red Coin. Get it. Then climb
    the stairs to the top of the raised ground. up here is a Star Cloud and a post
    containing a Red Coin. Jump over to the left posts surrounding the Star Tulip
    cave and pound it all the way to the bottom to find a Red Coin. In this cave is
    a Star Tulip, as well as two Red Coins underneath it. Now head back to where
    you fell down from the pipe and go down into the Wall Lakitu area. In here are
    several clouds, some containing co

    -Level Walkthrough-
    The level begins in a Lava-filled area. Above the posts that bob in the first
    section of lava are two Red Coins. Above the second set of posts in the lava
    are three more Red Coins. Jump on the second Guided Platform and follow it down
    its path to go through a Flower. Now jump across the dropping Platforms (above
    the yellow one is a Red Coin), and to the Middle Ring at the end of the lava
    area. Enter the pipe, and take the Arrow Globe to the upper left corner of the
    Spike area. Go into the pipe here, and morph into the Train. Take the upper
    path to reach a Flower (the only collectible item in here). Leave the Train
    room and take the Arrow Globe across to the upper right corner of the Spike
    area, collecting the three Red Coins in the middle. Go into the pipe to come to
    a dark tunnel. In this tunnel, the bottom left path leads to the Missile Shy
    Guy area (your first destination), the bottom right leading to a Red Coin, and
    the upper right leading out. Enter the Missile Shy Guy area, where a Star Cloud
    awaits above the Shy Guy pipe. If you want to make the Missile Shy Guys drop
    the bomb, pound the ground. Further down the path is an easily visible Flower.
    Shoot an egg through the dirt to get it. Near the end of the hallway is a small
    line of dirt with a Red Coin above it. At the end of the hall is another Star
    Cloud and a pot. Push the pot off the ledge to the right to get the key, then
    head back to the tunnel area and through the upper right opening. In here,
    shoot the "?" part of the Spiked Log & Chain to raise it, then run underneath
    it. Enter the pipe and go into the next dark tunnel. The upper left path leads
    to a Middle Ring, the upper right path leads to two Red Coins and the exit, and
    the lower right path leads to a room with two Bouncing Burts (destroy both to
    get a Flower). Head to the exit after you collect all the items, and get past
    the Spiked Log & Chains by shooting the circular "?" at the top. Underneath the
    second Spiked Log and Chain is a Flower. Right past this is the Arrow Globe
    area. Take the Arrow Globe up through the coins to collect three Red Coins,
    then head to the top. Destroy the single spikey patch at the top to find a "?"
    Cloud. Shoot it to unveil a door. Enter and you'll be in the Bandit area. In
    this room are four Red Coins and a Middle Ring at the top. The key to the door
    in the lower right corner is in the pot in the upper left corner. Watch out for
    Bandits. Enter the door, and go through the Middle Ring. Down the path a bit
    more is the door leading to the boss.
    
    -BOSS: The Potted Ghost-
    The Potted Ghost lives in a pot, so he can't move without the aid of his Shy
    Guy buddies. He also can't hurt you, but the blue flames he spits out can.
    Whenever you get the chance, push the pot over to the right. You're stronger
    than the two Shy Guys, but if you let them be, they'll move the pot over to the
    left, leaving you less and less room until eventually you're forced into the
    pit. To win, keep pushing until the Potted Ghost spits out the three blue
    flames (his chomp attack won't hurt you, it'll only knock you back). Wait for
    them to dissipate, then push some more. Eventually, you'll push the Shy Guys
    and The Potted Ghost into the pit on the right, clearing this level and this
    world.

    Mini-Games: None

    -Level Walkthrough-
    This is by far my favorite level in the game, due to its fast pace and overall
    fun. You'll need to memorize what to do and have quick reflexes if you want to
    beat it. When you begin the level, head over to the left and down the pipe.
    Inside are two Star Clouds and two crates. Get them all to fill up on Stars, as
    these are the only ones in the level. Head back up and stomp the first switch.
    Quickly dash up the stairs, and onto the first platform (red, like all the
    rest). You'll shoot up into the air, and go to the left. When you see the
    second switch on some blocks above, jump up. The longer you can avoid hitting
    it, the better. When the platform comes back around, jump back on it. It'll fly
    across the sky, where you'll collect four Red Coins. Skip the first Large Arrow
    Ball and continue across the blocks to the right. Soon you'll reach a second
    Large Arrow Ball. Bounce off of it to go through the first Flower, the run over
    to the left to hit the switch. On top of these blocks are four Red Coins, so
    don't miss them. After the switch is tripped, head back to the right and onto
    the next red platform. Duck down to fit under the blocks, and jump over the
    Piranha Plant to collect a Flower and two Red Coins. Repeat the process on the
    next platform. The platform after the second Piranha Plant will take you
    through the air and through two Red Coins. Jump off at the end and hit the
    switch next to the Large Arrow Ball. After the life of the blocks has been
    renewed, bounce up and over the taller column of blocks, collecting the two Red
    Coins and the Flower on the top. Fall down the other side and land on the right
    side of the next red platform. By standing on that side, you can jump on top of
    the blocks at the end of the path. Bounce off the Large Arrow Ball here and
    collect the Flower and two Red Coins at the apex of the leap. Instead of
    jumping on the next red platform, wait for the switch power to run out. If you
    don't you'll run into a wall of blocks. When they disappear, jump on and take
    the platform to the goal.
    
    -Item Locations-
    ~Stars:
     *At the beginning of the level, head to the left and into the pipe.
      Down here are two Star Clouds and two Crates.

     *After the second switch, you'll fly through the air and through four
      Red Coins.
     *To the right of the third switch are four Red Coins.
     *Above the two Piranha Plants are three Red Coins (each).
     *After the second Piranha Plant, the red platform will jump rocket
      through the sky, passing through two Red Coins.
     *After the fourth switch, you'll bounce over the wall, and at the top
      of the jump are two Red Coins.
     *After the fourth Large Arrow Ball (the second after the fourth
      switch), you'll leap into two more Red Coins (next to the Flower.
    ~Flowers:
     *The first Flower is after the first leap through the air. Bypass the
      first Arrow Ball and instead go to the second one to the right of it.
      You'll leap up into the Flower.
     *The second Flower is above the first Piranha Plant.
     *The third Flower is above the second Piranha Plant.
     *The fourth Flower is at the apex of the Large Arrow Ball bounce (after
      the fourth switch).
     *The final Flower is at the apex of the second Large Arrow Ball bounce
      after the fourth switch.

    -Level Walkthrough-
    The first level of World 3 is filled with vibrant scenery and a new cast of
    characters, to make the locales more unique. This level will introduce you to
    the jungle, where the Monkeys reign supreme. The first item in this level is
    found inside the first post. Ah, but it isn't a Red Coin, but a Hidden Cloud
    which contains Stars. Underneath the first tree in the level is a Red Coin, and
    above the first pit is a Flower. Immediately before the second post in the
    level is a Red Coin, and above the post is a Star Cloud. Pound down the post
    itself to find a Red Coin. After this post, jump off the end of the log to the
    right to reach the second Flower and the Red Coin beneath it. At the end of the
    forest area is a Red Coin. Now head to the muddy slopes of the Lake Area. Under
    the first Missile-dropping Monkey is a Red Coin, and not far after is a Middle
    Ring. Hop down the slope and into the lake (at this point, look at the "1-Up
    Locations" section of this level to find a few 1-Ups). Above the second and
    third small islands in the water are Red Coins. A Flower also resides above the
    Lake, as well as a Red Coin underneath it. Continue to the eastern shore of the
    lake and grab the Red Coin above the posts, and pound down the third post to
    find another Red Coin. Between the third and fourth posts is a Star Cloud. Now
    you'll reach the Vine Climb, a vertical ascension amidst a grouping of vines,
    although you'll never actually climb the vines yourself. A little ways up and
    on the right side is a "?" Cloud containing a Flower, and above the third
    Piranha plant is a Red Coin. Now continue on into the Jungle Area. Above the
    first pit are two Red Coins, and above the third to last pit in this section is
    another Red Coin. Enter the second part of the Jungle Area, where a Red Coin
    resides in the first post. There's also a Red Coin under the first chain of
    Swinging Monkeys. After the second pit is a Red Coin, as well as one under the
    first Teetering Log. The final Red Coin floats underneath the second chain of
    Swinging Monkeys.
    
    
    -Item Locations-
    ~Stars:
     *Pound down the first post to find a Hidden Cloud. This is a Star
      Cloud.
     *Shoot the "?" Cloud above the second post to get some extra stars.
     *There's a Middle Ring near the start of the Lake Area, right before
      the steep, muddy slope.
     *On the eastern shore of the Lake, there's a "?" Cloud between the
      second and third posts. It's a Star Cloud.
    ~Red Coins:
     *The first Red Coin dangles beneath the first tree in the level.
     *Before the second post you'll come across a Red Coin.
     *Pound down the second post to find a Red Coin.
     *Under the second Flower (after the second post) is another Red Coin.
     *At the end of the Forest Area, there's a line of coins, one of which
      is a Red Coin.
     *At the beginning of the Lake Area, look under the first Throwing
      Monkey to find a Red Coin.
     *In the lake, above the second and third islands are Red Coins (two
      total).
     *Under the third Flower (which is above the lake) is a Red Coin.
     *On the eastern shore of the lake is a Red Coin.
     *On the eastern shore of the lake, pound down the third post to find a
      Red Coin.
     *Above the third Piranha Plant in the Vine Climb is a Red Coin.
     *There's two Red Coins above the first pit in the Jungle Are.
     *Above the third to last pit in the first part of the Jungle Area is a
      Red Coin.
     *At the beginning of the second part of the Jungle Area is a post.
      Pound it down to get a Red Coin.
     *Under the first group of Swinging Monkeys is a Red Coin.
     *After the second pit, there's a Red Coin.

     *The second Flower is after the second post. Jump off the log to the
      left.
     *The third Flower is above the lake, easily visible.
     *You'll find the fourth Flower on the Vine Climb. It's in a "?" Cloud
      on the left side (about halfway up).
     *The last Flower is above the first Teetering Log in the Jungle Area.
    
    -1-Up Locations-
     *When you first arrive at the water of the Lake Area, swim over to the
      left part (near the muddy embankment). Jump out of the water and do
      the pound move. Press and hold left as you do this, and you'll go
      underneath the ground. Continue over until you surface. Jump up and
      out of the water and use the Large Arrow Ball to jump up above the
      trees. In this area, you'll fall down a series of Donut Lifts while
      six Shy Guys carrying 1-Ups fly by. Don't be shy about using eggs, as
      there's plenty to grab on the way down. Six 1-Ups will be very handy
      in the future.

    No. of Coins: 44      No. of Stars: 23          No. of "?" Clouds: 4
    Enemies: Mini Milde, Spear Shy Guy, Cannibal Shy Guy, Tap-Tap, Piranha

    Transformations: None
    
    -Level Layout-
    
    Native Shy Guy Area ---> Floating Platform Area ---> Mountain Climb --->
    Mountaintop Area ---> Goal
    
    -Level Walkthrough-
    Level 3-2 is a somewhat sort trek through the jungle, up a cliff, and across a
    mountaintop. There isn't anything to collect until you reach a couple of Spear
    Shy Guys patrolling under a rock. Behind them are three Red Coins and a Flower.
    Wait until they turn around, then eat/shoot an egg to clear them out. After
    this rock is a clearing in which several Cannibal Shy Guys dance. A Flying Shy
    Guy will fly down above them, so be ready to grab the Red Coin that it carries.
    There's another Red Coin on the ground. Also in the Cannibal Shy Guy's clearing
    are two "?" Clouds. One contains a Key and the other is a Star Cloud. Continue
    down the path and you'll soon enter a rocky area. After the first Tap-Tap is a
    Flower and a Star Tulip. Keep hopping to the right and you'll come across a
    Swinging Platform. To the right of it is a Middle Ring. Jump on the Swinging
    Platform, and ride it to the top. Activate both Platform Blocks, and use the
    left one to reach the four Red Coins above it (you may want to wait until you
    swing around again). After you've collected these, use the right platform to
    reach the area above (and a Flower). Climb up the rocks until you reach the
    Rotating Platform. Above it are two clouds. One contains a Flower, and the
    other activates the stairs. Take the stairs up and you'll reach a second
    Rotating Platform. To the left on the ground is an Egg Flower and two Red
    Coins. Jump back to the Rotating Platform, and ride to the top. From there,
    jump (and maintain your height by fluttering) a far as you can to the left.
    You'll enter an area inside the trees, where four Red Coins and the Mini-Game
    Hut wait (you'll play Throwing Balloons). Exit when you finish, and head to the
    right of the Rotating Platform where two more Red Coins wait. Above the
    Cannibal Shy Guys is a Flower, and above the Piranha Plant a Flying Shy Guy
    will fly down with a Red Coin. Finally, above the second set of Cannibal Shy
    Guys on the mountaintop are two Red Coins. Now simply head for the goal.
    
    -Item Locations-
    ~Stars:
     *Above the first Cannibal Shy Guys is a Star Cloud.
     *After you pass the first Tap-Tap, you'll come across a Star Tulip.
     *To the right of the Swinging Platform is a Middle Ring.
    ~Red Coins:
     *Near the beginning of the level is a overhanging rock with two Spear
      Shy Guys patrolling underneath. Wait until they turn around, then
      eat/egg them to grab the three Red Coins under there.
     *Above the first group of Cannibal Shy Guys, a Flying Shy Guy will
      swoop down with a Red Coin. There's also another on the jungle floor.
     *Above and to the left of the Swinging Platform are four Red Coins.
      Smash the Platform Block there so you can reach them.
     *Head to the left of the second Rotating Platform to find an Egg Flower
      and two Red Coins.
     *Standing on the second Rotating Platform, jump to the left. You'll
      emerge inside the trees, where four Red Coins hide behind the leaves.
     *To the right of the second Rotating Platform are two Red Coins.
     *Above the Piranha Plant on the mountaintop is a Flying Shy Guy. Grab
      his Red Coin before he flies away.
     *Look above the second group of Cannibal Shy Guys on the Mountaintop
      to find the last two Red Coins.
    ~Flowers:
     *Near the beginning of the level is a overhanging rock with two Spear
     Shy Guys patrolling underneath. Wait until they turn around, then
     eat/egg them to grab the Flower under there.
     *After the first Tap-Tap and near the Star Tulip is a Flower.
     *The third Flower is located above the swinging Platform. Use the
      Platform block to reach it.
     *The fourth Flower can be found above the first Rotating Platform in a
      "?" Cloud.
     *Look for the fifth Flower above the first group of Cannibal Shy Guys
      on the mountaintop.

    -Level Layout-
    
    Nep-enut Lake ---> Helicopter Lake ---> Submarine Lake --->
    Froggy Area ---> Jumping Fish Area ---> Goal
    
    -Level Walkthrough-
    This level is filled with water, and you'll even get a chance to dive deep
    below with the Submarine transformation. From the start of the level, continue
    to the shore of the first lake. In each of these lakes is a Nep-enut, which is
    best to subdue with an egg. Above the first Nep-enut is a Flower. On the land
    after it is a Star Cloud. Above the second Nep-enut are two Red Coins, and in
    the third Nep-enut's lake is another Red Coin (it's under the trees). Go up the
    hill after it and above the left slope is a Flower. Five Red Coins and a Star
    Cloud await your long voyage across the fourth Nep-enut lake, and a Star Cloud
    will greet you on the other side. This marks the end of the Nep-enut Lake,
    signified with a Middle Ring. In the Helicopter Lake, there's a Star Cloud
    behind the first Watermelon Monkey. Continue over to the very right of the
    level, and go under the rock that the door rests (it's in the "?" Cloud) on to
    find a Red Coin. Then enter the door and eat all three of the Spear Shy Guys to
    receive a Flower. When you come out, grab the Helicopter transformation bubble
    to the left and fly through the rocks to the Yoshi Block. Enter the door to the
    left, and you'll be in the Submarine Lake. Collect the Middle Ring, then plunge
    down to the transformation bubble. The only item in this long stretch of water
    is a Red Coin to the left of the first Spiked Ball & Chain. Soon you'll reach
    the end of the Submarine Lake and surface. Activate the Middle Ring, then head
    to the right. Under the two Flying Shy Guys is a Red Coin. Following this is a
    two-level bridge, where after the second Giant Crab is a Red Coin. There's also
    a Star Cloud above it. To the right a little more is a Flower, easily seen
    underneath the bridges. Jump up on the platforms (to the left of them is a Red
    Coin), and head down the first opening. At the bottom, on the very right end of
    the water, is a Red Coin (destroy the Giant Crab first so you can get up more
    easily, and where it stood is another Red Coin). Head back up and go down the
    stairs to the right, and you'll run into a Red Coin. Enter the door at the
    bottom. In the Jumping Fish Area you just entered are several items. Above the
    first bridge are two Red Coins, as well as a Flower. There's a Star Cloud after
    the Flower, too. Finally, after climbing the stairs, pound down the post to the
    lowest bridge and you'll find a Red Coin. Now you can run to the Goal.
    
    -Item Locations-
    ~Stars:
     *After the first Nep-enut Lake, there's a Star Cloud.

     *At the very end of the Nep-enut Lake area you'll find a Middle Ring.
     *In the Helicopter Lake area, after the first Watermelon Monkey you'll
      see a Star Cloud.

      right through a Red Coin.
     *In the Jumping Fish Area, above the first bridge are two Red Coins.

    -Level Walkthrough-
    Prince Froggy's Fort is unlike any other castle. This one is flooded by water,
    and you'll definitely be taking a dip before you reach the Frog Prince. In the
    Outside Area (at the beginning), head down the path until you reach some Spikey
    patches (the blue/gray spikes that can be cleared with eggs). Underneath one of
    the lower right patches is a "?" Cloud, which when shot will lead to a
    Submarine area. In these waters are two Red Coins. Exit, then head to the right
    and into the Castle. Above the first Jumping Fishes are two Red Coins. Enter
    the first door and look around to find three Red Coins and a Star Cloud (in the
    door in this room, defeat both Giant Crabs to receive a Flower). Exit back into
    the main passage and continue to the right. Above the first Spiked Ball & Chain
    is a Red Coin, and beneath the second is a Flower. There's two Red Coins
    beneath the third Spiked Ball & Chain. Enter the door just beyond to find three
    Red Coins, then go back out. Further in the ruins you'll find a Self-Rotating
    Platform. Ride it across the river and you'll be able to reach some items
    above, including a Flower, a Star Cloud, and later on two Red Coins (underneath
    the fourth set of Missile Shy Guys). At the end of the Castle Ruins area is a
    Middle Ring. Now head into the Crab Tunnel. When you come across a Giant Crab,
    run back to where there's an opening in the wall. Lure the Crab back, and jump
    over it. In the middle of the tunnel are three Red Coins. Continue through the
    tunnel, out the door, and into the Slime Tunnel. Shoot the "?" Clouds to make
    bridges across the spikes (watch out for Slimes!), but before you shoot the
    third, shoot the Flower right above the spikes. Not far after you'll come to a
    Self-Rotating Platform (and before it a Star Cloud). Ride it across the spikes,
    and be sure to collect the Flower that comes up along the way. Enter the door
    at the other end, and you'll come to a Middle Ring. Leap up the steps, and
    you'll be right outside Prince Froggy's Room.
    
    -BOSS: Prince Froggy-
    Prince Froggy is much like any other Froggy you've encountered thus far.
    Surprisingly, Kamek will not turn him into a gigantic Frog, but will instead
    shrink you so you can be a quick snack for the Prince. The battle takes place
    inside his stomach (yes, it really does). Stand in the exact middle (above
    the... um... "excrement" tunnel) and you'll avoid the acid drops that fall
    down. Every once in a while Prince Froggy will eat a Shy Guy, which will come
    down. Slurp it up and shoot the egg at the uvula (what's it doing in the
    stomach? who knows) to hurt Prince Froggy. Soon he'll get an upset stomach and
    he'll... um... "excrete" you out. It must feel good going through there.

    ~LEVEL 3-5: JAMMIN' THROUGH THE TREES~
    Type: Jungle          Difficulty: Medium        Yoshi Color: Purple
    No. of Coins: 211     No. of Stars: 48          No. of "?" Clouds: 7
    Enemies: Monkey, Throwing Monkey, Watermelon Monkey, Gusty, Shy Guy,
             Cactus Piranha Plant, Flying shy Guy
    Mini-Games: None
    Transformations: None
    
    -Level Layout-
    
    Dirt Area ---> Rotating Platform Area ---> Rocky Area --->
    Treetop Area ---> Monkey Area ---> Goal
    
    -Level Walkthrough-
    This level takes you through the trees and above dangerous pits in the depths
    of the monkey jungle. The first part of the level takes place inside large
    fields of dirt, that you'll need to clear out of the way with eggs or
    watermelon seeds if you want to proceed. After the second Egg Block is a Star
    Tulip. The Mini-Cactus' pot, found after the dirt wall, is good for spitting
    into it. Speaking of beyond the next dirt wall, that's where two Red Coins and
    a "?" Cloud containing a Flower are. Continue on until you reach the third Egg
    Block (there's a lot of these, aren't there?). In the dirt to the right is a
    Hidden Cloud, which contains five stars. Soon the path will be totally blocked
    by dirt. Shoot eggs to get through it, as well as to collect the Flower, Red
    Coin in the coin line above, the Red Coin in the coin line below, and a Star
    Cloud in the dirt right underneath the upper coin line. Now continue on to the
    next area. When you come to the first two Rotating Platforms, collect the two
    higher coins, as they are Red Coins. There's a Middle Ring right after the
    third Rotating Platform. Over the pit of spikes are four more Red Coins,
    between this level's fourth and fifth Rotating Platforms. After the Shy Guy
    pipe, there's a tiny hole in the ground. Jump into it and you'll make a Hidden
    Cloud materialize. Shoot it (this is hard, but try to shoot as straight down as
    possible) and five stars will pop out. Just beyond this point is a post. Grab
    the watermelon from the Monkey to the left, then pound down the post four times
    (no more!). Spit a watermelon seed to the left and you'll get the Flower. Next,
    go to where the Monkey was, and below it are four Red Coins. Now continue to
    the exit of the area, but you'll see a Flower right before it. Bank an egg off
    the wall to collect it. You'll come to an area where you jump across treetops.
    Above the first Cactus Piranha Plant are two Red Coins, and there's two more
    above the second one (as well as a 1-Up carrying Flying Shy Guy). When you get
    to the end of the treetops, you'll see more below. Right below where the second
    Cactus Piranha Plant was are two more Red Coins. If you continue down the lower
    treetops, you'll enter a new, bonus area. Here shoot the Hidden Cloud that the
    arrow points to and us the Red Switch to go to the platform that takes you
    across the sky, collecting coins, stars, and possibly five 1-Ups. When you're
    done, go back to the end of the treetops. To the right is land, and in between
    the Throwing Monkeys and the trees is a Star Cloud. To the very right is a
    Switch. Hitting it will allow you to get the outlined coins, whose path you
    should follow to continue through the level. After passing the second tree high
    in the air, drop down to the rocks below. You'll see a Flower below, and you'll
    only have to shoot an egg to get it. Climb back up on top of the tree and over
    the stone wall. When you reach the land below, you'll be near the goal.
    
    -Item Locations-
    ~Stars:
     *Find a Star Tulip after the second Egg Block in the level.
     *Find a Hidden Cloud in the dirt wall after the third Egg
      Block in the Dirt Area. It's a Star Cloud.
     *Hidden in the dirt of the Gusty part of the Dirt Area is a Star Cloud.
      It's right underneath the upper group of three coins.
     *You'll come across a Middle Ring after the third Rotating Platform.
     *After the Shy Guy Pipe in the Rocky Area is a small hole. Jump in it
      to reveal a Hidden Cloud, and shoot it to uncover a Star Cloud.
     *In the Monkey Tree area after the treetops, there's a Star Cloud.
     *In the bonus area in the treetops, there will be two Flying Shy Guys
      carrying Star Clouds.
    ~Red Coins:
     *Under the "?" Cloud in the level are two Red Coins.
     *In the Gusty part of the Dirt Area, there are two groupings of three
      coins, one high in the dirt and one low. In each of these groups is 1
      Red Coin. Shoot eggs to get them.
     *There are two Red Coins between the first and second Rotating
      Platforms in the level (the higher coins).
     *There are four Red Coins between the fourth and fifth Rotating
      Platforms, both in the higher and lower groupings of coins.
     *After the post in the Rocky Area, there's a small opening going down
      that leads to four Red Coins.
     *In the Treetop Area, there are four Red Coins, two above each of the
      Cactus Piranha Plants.
     *The lower treetops below the second Cactus Piranha Plant is home to
      the final two Red Coins.
    ~Flowers:
     *The first Flower is in a "?" Cloud, located behind the dirt wall after
      the Star Tulip.
     *Look for the second Flower in the Gusty part of the Dirt Area, easily
      visible in between the dirt.
     *In the Rocky Area, grab the watermelon from the Monkey and pound the
      post that's there down four times. Spit a seed to the left to get the
      Flower.
     *Also in the Rocky Area, the fourth Flower is near the exit. Bank an
      egg off the wall near the end to get it,
     *The final Flower is under the second tree in the air (with two
      Missile Throwing Monkeys). Jump down to the stone platform below, and
      you'll see a Flower. Shoot an egg at it to get it.
    
    -1-Up Locations-
     *In the bonus area, found to the very left of the lower treetops on
      the Treetop area, shoot the Hidden Cloud that the arrow points to,
      activate the switch, and ride the platform around. You'll come across
      five Flying Shy Guys with 1-Ups.
     *In the Rocky Area, jump to the left of where the four Red Coins are.
      In the tiny opening is a Hidden Cloud, containing a 1-Up.

    ~LEVEL 3-6: THE CAVE OF HARRY HEDGEHOG~
    Type: Cave            Difficulty: Medium        Yoshi Color: Brown
    No. of Coins: 381     No. of Stars: 33          No. of "?" Clouds: 8
    Enemies: Harry Hedgehog, Cave Rat, Lantern Ghoul
    Mini-Games: None
    Transformations: Mole Tank
    
    -Level Layout-
    
    Outside Cave Area ---> Cave Area ---> End Area ---> Goal
    
    -Level Walkthrough-
    The Cave of Harry Hedgehog isn't a large level, but it'll still take you a
    while to get through it. Being a cave level, there are many different ways to
    go and paths to take. You begin outside the cave, in the regular lush Jungle.
    Watch out for the Monkeys, and jump onto the trees above the starting point.
    Flutter jump over to the tall trees near the entrance to the cave (on the
    ground), and you'll come to a higher cave entrance. Before you enter, grab the
    four Red Coins outside. When you enter the cave, a Flower will greet you. Grab
    it and drop down below. To the right you'll find a Key, then go back to where
    you dropped down and bounce to the top using the Large Arrow Ball. Where you
    land is a Star Tulip, and you'll need to shoot an egg so it bounces off the
    ceiling just right to get the stars inside. Continue right and drop down into
    the main cave area. Move to the right until you see a "?" Cloud above a
    mushroom. Shoot it to make stairs appear, and climb them. In this high,
    Mushroom-filled area there's four Red Coins, a Flower, and a Star Cloud. Jump
    back down and go right until you reach a Chomp Rock. Push it down the hills and
    all the way over until it runs into the wall. Use it as a step to get up to the
    level above. From here head left, and shoot the "?" Cloud to make a Flower
    grow. Jump up it and go over to the left, where a Mole Tank bubble is (the two
    coins to either side of it are Red Coins, by the way). When you transform,
    you'll drop down far below. When you hit the ground, head left through the
    tunnels. The four coins on the bottom are Red Coins, and don't miss the Flower
    in the middle (though it'd be kinda hard to). When you reach the end, jump off
    the Large Arrow Ball, getting rid of the yellow egg block (so you don't have to
    transform anymore), but first head to the right before jumping to the top.
    You'll come across a Star Cloud, and at the end a pipe. Enter the pipe and
    shoot the "?" Cloud to make a Switch appear. Hit it and run through the coin
    field. Right before it runs out, hit the switch at the other end, jump to the
    top, and dash back to the left. Grab the Flower at the end, then collect coins
    until time runs out. Exit the pipe and head back to the Large Arrow Ball.
    Spring up above, and jump to the right. On the floating island there's a Middle
    Ring and a Star Cloud. To the right of the floating island, be sure to grab the
    Flower and the three Red Coins when you jump to the floating mushroom (don't be
    afraid to fall if you have to, you'll just have to go back to the Large Arrow
    Ball). From the mushrooms above, follow the line of coins (four of these coins
    are Red Coins) to the Key Door on a lower mushroom. Enter and you'll be in the
    End Area. Right above the entrance is a Hidden Cloud, but before you shoot it,
    go out into the open and look up. You'll see another cloud. Shoot it to make
    stairs appear, then go back a shoot the Hidden Cloud. A switch will appear, and
    when you climb the stairs with it activated, you'll find a bunch of coins. From
    here simply go right and you'll come to the exit
    -Item Locations-
    ~Stars:
     *If you take the upper entrance from the Outside Cave Area, the Large
      Arrow Ball inside will take you to a Star Tulip. Bank the egg off the
      ceiling (stand just to the right of the Star Tulip and aim up) to get
      it in.
     *When you see a "?" Cloud over a mushroom in the higher part of the
      first half of the Cave Area, shoot it to make stairs appear. Above is
      a Star Cloud.
     *Bounce off the Large Arrow Ball after the Mole Tank tunnels to get
      high above the level, then go right to get to the floating island.
      There's a Star Cloud here.
     *Also on the floating island is a Middle Ring.
     *Below the floating island you'll find a Star Cloud.
    ~Red Coins:
     *If you jump from the treetops to the higher entrance at the beginning
      of the level, you'll find four Red Coins.
     *When you see a "?" Cloud over a mushroom in the higher part of the
      first half of the Cave Area, shoot it to make stairs appear. Above are
      four Red Coins.
     *To either side of the Mole Tank bubble are Red Coins (two total).
     *In the Mole Tank tunnels, the bottom row of four coins are all Red
      Coins.
     *Between the floating island (where the Middle Ring is) and the
      mushroom to the right are three Red Coins.
     *Follow the line of coins from the high mushrooms to the Key Door to
      get three Red Coins.
    ~Flowers:
     *The first Flower is right inside the higher entrance to the Cave
      Area. Jump from the treetops outside to reach it.
     *Look for the second Flower from the stairs that you create from the
      "?" Cloud above the mushroom in the first half if the Cave Area.
     *Flower 3 can be found in the Mole Tank Tunnels. It's quite easy to
      see.
     *The fourth Flower sits inside the enemy pipe at the very right end of
      the Cave Area. Go inside and hit the switches, then race to the top
      to grab the Flower in time.
     *The last Flower is in between the floating island and the high
      mushrooms. Grab it as you flutter across.

    -Level Layout-
    
    Lake Area 1 ---> Lake Area 2 ---> Post Area ---> Catfish Lake Area
    ---> Goal
    
    -Level Walkthrough-
    This level has a ton of water in it, and most of the time you'll be trudging
    through it. You start out in the water, and you'll need to head right. After
    the first island is a Star Cloud. Soon after you'll see a Rotating Platform.
    Use it to get out of the water and start it rotating. Soon you'll come to a
    Flower under the first group of Swining Monkeys. At the end of the Rotating
    Platform line is a rocky island. The small pit on top contains a Hidden Cloud.
    Shoot it with an egg and a Switch will appear. Hit the switch and follow the
    arrow that's to the left. You'll warp to an underground chamber filled with
    water, and you'll need to transform into the submarine. There are five Red
    Coins to be found there. When you exit the Submarine area, go on to the next
    area, Lake Area 2. Not far from the entrance is a Star Cloud, and right after
    the first island is a Flying Shy Guy that drops down for a few moments with a
    Red Coin. Continue through the waters until you pass the first Crab. There's a
    "?" Cloud here, and shoot it to make a Growing Flower appear. It'll take you up
    to an Egg Block and even better, a Flower. Right after this Growing Flower is
    an area with missile Throwing Monkeys, and in the middle of this area is a Star
    Cloud. Continue right until you see another "?" Cloud. Shoot it and another
    Growing Flower will appear. Climb to the top and jump up to transport Yoshi to
    a treetop place. There are four Red Coins above the first part of the treetops,
    as well as a Flower at the end. Jump over the pit with the coin arrow (the coin
    at the very point of the arrow is a Red Coin) to the second part, where a Star
    Cloud and 1-Up await. Drop down the pit at the end to return to the Lake Area
    2. To the left are some trees, as well as Fake Flowers. Above the second Fake
    Flower are two Red Coins. Continue on and you'll come to the Post Area. Bounce
    off the Large Arrow Ball to the place above. Begin pounding down the tall post.
    There are Two Red Coins in the top area, and a Flower in the second. Pound down
    the post all the way now and go right and up to find a Middle Ring. Now
    continue on to the next area, Catfish Lake. Above one of the first lakes are
    two Red Coins. Continue on until you reach some rocks with Fake Flower s above
    them. Go underneath these rocks and swim to the right (don't worry about the
    Catfish, just move fast) to find a Red Coin and a Flower. Also here is a "?"
    Cloud containing a key, and the Mini-Game Hut is right next to it! Enter to
    play a quick game of Popping Balloons, then continue through the Lake. This
    second half has water with coins just above the surface. To safely get these
    coins, skip an egg across the water (just shoot one at the water and it'll
    start skipping). The first and last of these lakes contain Red Coins,
    completing the set with the final two. At the end of the Catfish Lake Area is a
    "?" Cloud. It forms a bridge, and you can go back left to get a 1-Up nestled
    between two large rocks. Right past the "?" Cloud that forms the bridge is the
    Goal.
    
    -Item Locations-
    ~Stars:
     *After the first island in Lake Area 1, there's a Star Cloud.
     *In Lake Area 2, there's a Star Cloud near the entrance to the area.
     *After the first Growing Flower, in a vine-covered area with Throwing
      Monkeys, there's a Star Cloud up above the lake.
     *In the treetops (access them by activating the second Growing Flower),
      jump across the pit with the coin arrow to reach a Star Cloud.
     *In the Post Area, near the exit to the Catfish Lake Area, there's a
      Middle Ring.
     *Early on in the Catfish Lake Area, you'll come across a Star Cloud.
    ~Red Coins:
     *Near the end of the first area, jump in the small pit in between the
      rocks to find a Hidden Cloud containing a Switch. It'll show you the
      way to a Submarine area, where five Red Coins float in the waters.
     *Near the beginning of Lake Area 2, a Flying Shy Guy holding a Red Coin
      will swoop down for a few seconds. Grab the coin!
     *In the treetops (access them by activating the second Growing Flower),
      there are four Red Coins over the first section of trees.
     *Also in the treetops, above the large pit is an arrow made of coins.
      The coin at the point of the arrow is a Red Coin.
     *Near the end of Lake Area 2, there are two Red Coins above the second
      Fake Flower.
     *When pounding the tall post, go into the first level you come to to
      find two Red Coins.
     *Look for two Red Coins above one of the first lakes in the Catfish
      Lake Area.
     *In the middle of the Catfish Lake Area, go under the stone before the
      Fake Flowers, and swim to the right. You'll find a Red Coin along the
      way.
     *Near the end of the Catfish Lake, above the first and last lakes with
      coins just above the surface, shoot an egg across the water to collect
      two Red Coins.
    ~Flowers:
     *Where the firstchain of Swinging Monkeys is, there's also the first
      Flower (above the lake where you use the Rotating Platform).
     *After the first Crab in Lake Area 2, there's a "?" Cloud containing a
      Growing Flower. Climb the Flower's leaves to the second Flower.
     *At the end of the treetops' first part (right before the coin arrow)
      is where you can find the third Flower.
     *When pounding down the tall post, go into the second level you come to
      to find the fourth Flower.
     *In the middle of the Catfish Lake Area, go under the stone before the
      Fake Flowers, and swim to the right. You'll find a Flower along the
      way.
    
    -1-Up Locations-
     *In the treetops (get to them by growing the second Growing Flower,
      found just a little ways after the first Growing Flower), jump across
      the pit with the coin arrow to more trees. Above these are two clouds,
      one containing a 1-Up.
     *In the Post Area, jump as high as you can off the Large Arrow Ball at
      the beginning, and soar onto or over the posts on the hill. On the
      right side of these posts is a Hidden Cloud, containing a 1-Up.
     *Above the Catfish Lake, you'll see a Cloud nestled between two large
      rocks in the air. At the end of the Lake, shoot the "?" Cloud to form
      a bridge, then go back to the cloud. Shoot an egg straight up to get
      the 1-Up inside the cloud.

    Outside Area ---> Pipes Room 1 ---> Egg Bank Room ---> Pipes Room 3 --->
    Central Room ---> Piranha Pipes ---> Naval Piranha ---> Goal
    
    -Level Walkthrough-
    Naval Piranha's Castle is overflowing with water, and you'll need to navigate
    the intricate pipe system if you want to face off with the big plant itself.
    Enter the castle and proceed past the Tunnel Boo. After making your way through
    the first set of Flippers, head to the right and up to find the first Red Coin.
    Go back down and continue to the lowest part of the Pipe Area 1, where a small
    water-filled chamber houses two Red Coins. Continue on down the steep slope,
    dodge the Piranha Plants, and enter the Egg Bank Room. Here you'll need to bank
    eggs off the walls and skip them across the water to collect items. Four coins
    under the entrance are Red Coins. On the middle island, bank an egg off the
    wall to the left to get three Red Coins, and to the right to get two Red Coins
    and a Flower. At the end of this area, behind a Piranha Plant, is the second
    Flower. To the right of this are three more Red Coins (quite a few in this
    room, huh?). Exit the room and go down another slope and continue right to find
    a third Flower not to high above the path. Soon you'll come to the Central
    Room. Kill the Cactus Piranha Plants, then jump through the Middle Ring. From
    this room, go up and to the right. The room up above holds a Flower. Now head
    back to the Center room and dive into the water at the bottom. Head left and
    you'll start going down a passage. Make your way past the Scuba Lakitus, Room
    Boos, and Piranha Plants to find a large room. At the top are three Red Coins
    and a Star Cloud. Go back to the Central Chamber and continue down the path to
    the right. You'll now be in the Piranha Pipes area. Use the bank shot you
    learned earlier (shoot an egg off a wall onto the surface of the water, if you
    forgot) to defeat the Piranha Plants. After the second Piranha Plant are two
    Red Coins and a Flower. Now you're near the boss. Stock up on stars from the
    Star Tulip right before the entrance to the boss' chamber, then enter.
    
    -BOSS: Naval Piranha-
    Naval Piranha looks intimidating at first, but all you need to do is land three
    shots on the bandage that sits on a vine beneath the platform you're on. The
    bank shots you learned earlier were just practice for this, the real test.
    Naval Piranha will sometimes charge at you, and at this time (and a little bit
    before and after) the bandage cannot be hit. To replenish your eggs, let the
    Nipper spores Naval shoots land. If you manage to hit the sore spot three
    times, you'll win.
    
    *TRICK - There's an easier way to beat Naval Piranha. If you stand on the very
    left edge of the white pebble platform, then throw an egg at Naval Piranha,
    you'll hit Naval while he's still a tiny, normal Piranha Plant, killing him
    without any trouble at all.
    
    -Item Locations-
    ~Stars:
     *In the middle of the central room, there's a Middle Ring.
     *Get into the water in the Central Room, swim to the left, and head
      down the tunnel. In the large room at the end, go to the top to find
      a Star Cloud.
     *A Star Tulip awaits right before the door to Naval Piranha. Hard to
      miss.
    ~Red Coins:
     *After the first set of Flippers, head to the top-right corner of the
      first Pipe Area to find a Red Coin.
     *In Pipes Room 1, head to the lower-left part to find two Red Coins.
     *Use the egg banking technique to skip the eggs off the water in the
      Egg Bank Room to collect twelve Red Coins... or just jump down into
      the water and swim to them.
     *Get into the water in the Central Room, swim to the left, and head
      down the tunnel. In the large room at the end, go to the top to find
      three Red Coins.
     *Make your way past the Piranha Plants near the end to find two Red
      Coins.
    ~Flowers:
     *Use the egg banking technique to skip the eggs off the water in the
      Egg Bank Room to collect the first and second Flowers.
     *The third Flower is down the second steep slope, right above the
      normal path.
     *From the Central Room, go up and to the right. You'll come to a room
      with a Flower in it.
     *Make your way past the Piranha Plants near the end to find the fifth
      and final Flower.

    ~EXTRA 3: MORE MONKEY MADNESS~
    Type: Jungle          Difficulty: Hard          Yoshi Color: Green
    No. of Coins: 81      No. of Stars: 10          No. of "?" Clouds: 2
    Enemies: Flying Shy Guy, Monkey, Watermelon Monkey, Toadie
    Mini-Games: None
    Transformations: None
    
    -Level Walkthrough-
    This level is quite difficult, as you must navigate Rotating and Self-Rotating
    platforms above pits with monkeys spitting watermelon seeds at you, walls
    blocking your path, and Flying Shy Guys taunting you with hard-to-get Red
    Coins. It's short, but definitely hard. Hang around at the start of the level
    for a Flying Shy Guy to drop by with a Red Coin. Also at the beginning are two
    Star Clouds. The line of coins nearby has two Red Coins, and the second post
    also holds a Red Coin. Look above the first red platform for another Red Coin.
    Between the first and second rotating platforms are two Red Coins. To get by
    the second Rotating Platform, wait for the monkeys to spit their seeds, then
    drop down to the lowest platform and then quickly up to the other side. There's
    a Flower and two Red Coins here. Between Rotating Platforms three and four (and
    two tall posts) is a Flower that can be easily gotten with an egg shot. In the
    many coins after this platform (watch out for the watermelon seed! eat the
    monkeys as soon as you can!) are three Red Coins. At the end of the ride, shoot
    an egg at the Flower in front of the post. The fifth Rotating Platform has a
    Red Coin around it, but you'll need to move incredibly fast (and be good with
    your tongue) if you want to grab the Red Coin the Flying Shy Guy has on the
    other side. On the other side of the wall at the top is a Flower. In the two
    long lines of coins after the fifth Rotating Platform, there are four Red Coins
    (two in each line). Now you'll be near the goal... but don't finish the level
    yet. Two Flying Shy Guys will drop down with Red Coins, and there's a Flower
    behind the Goal Ring. Finally, you'll notice you still don't have enough stars.
    You'll need to use a +10 Star item to meet the score.
    
    -Item Locations-
    ~Stars:
     *Two Star Clouds wait at the beginning of the level.
     *Jump up and offscreen to the right of the wall near the first Flower to get
      into a secret area with two Crates and a Star Cloud.
    ~Red Coins:
     *At the beginning, a Flying Shy Guy will swoop down with a Red Coin.
     *Two Red Coins rest in the line of coins at the start.
     *Pound down the second post to find a Red Coin.
     *Above the first red platform, you'll spot a Red Coin.
     *Two Red Coins rest between Rotating Platforms 1 and 2.
     *Behind the wall above Rotating Platform 2 is a Red Coin.
     *In the field of coins and Watermelon Monkeys that you ride through
      with Rotating Platform 4 are three Red Coins.
     *A Red Coin waits in the coins around the fifth Rotating Platform.
     *A Flying Shy Guy drops by the right side of Rotating Platform 5 with
      a Red Coin. Be very careful while getting it, but don't dawdle.
     *After Rotating Platform 5, each of the two lines of coins you'll come
      across has two Red Coins.
     *Two Flying Shy Guys will drop in with Red coins right before the Goal
      Ring.
    ~Flowers:
     *Behind the wall above Rotating Platform 2 is the first Flower.
     *Look between Rotating Platforms 3 and 4 to find a Flower. It's
      easiest to get with an egg shot.
     *After riding the fourth Rotating Platform through the treetops, shoot
      an egg at the Flower near the post.
     *Behind the wall above Rotating Platform 5 is the fourth Flower.
     *The last Flower is behind the goal ring.

    Plains Area ---> Pipe Area ---> Bullet Bill Cannon Field ---> Fuzzy Area --->
    Super Baby Mario Area ---> Goal
    
    
    -Level Walkthrough-
    This level starts out in the middle of a field. As you make your way through,
    you'll encounter several Goomba and Koopas. A Flower is in plain view when you
    come across the first group of Para-Koopas. Right after the Flower is a long
    line of coins following a rising hill. The first and last coins in this line
    are Red Coins. Soon you'll come to the Pipe Area, where you'll be surrounded by
    pipes. The first pipe you encounter will spurt Shy Guys. Defeat the Piranha
    Plants nearby, stock up on eggs, get some 1-Ups (see Secrets section), then go
    on further into the Pipe Area. A Star Cloud floats in between two pipes just a
    little ways down the path. Continue down to uncover a Cactus Piranha Plant.
    Defeat it, then go down the pipe in front of it. The cave you'll emerge in
    contains six Red Coins and a Crate near the end. Beware of Shy Guys and Bandits
    hiding behind the crystals. When you emerge from the cavern, a Star Tulip will
    be just to your left. Press on and you'll come to a place filled with Bullet
    Bill Cannons. Bounce off a Bullet Bill from the first cannon up to the small
    ledge above to find a Hidden Star Cloud. Jump back down and check in between
    the first two cannons to find a Red Coin. Go all the way to the right and down
    below the first cannons through a narrow passage. Along this path you'll find a
    Flower, three Red Coins, and an Ice Watermelon which you can use to freeze even
    Bullet Bill cannons. Jump back up to the top and to the path going higher than
    the first two cannons. In the pits between the cannons here are Red Coins (a
    total of two), but watch out for the Para-Troopas and Bullet Bills that are
    flying around in there. Continue on into the next area and hit to Middle Ring.
    This area is filled with your friends from World 1, Fuzzies. This time,
    however, there are pits you must navigate over while dodging the Fuzzy ones. In
    the large section of land in the Fuzzy Are, there's a small hole in the ground
    that contains a Flower. If you hit a Fuzzy here, get to the land formation (if
    you're not already on it), because trying to navigate the area with a pit below
    while dizzy is NOT safe. Get through this area to find another Middle Ring.
    Continue through this area, past the Enemy Pipe and down below. You'll soon see
    a star above you bouncing. To free it, shoot the dirt blocking your path with
    an egg. It'll drop down and you'll transform into Super Baby Mario. Start
    running up the wall to the left and through the first coin line to uncover a
    Red Coin. Continue running across the walls and ceiling and you'll eventually
    cross a Flower. Continue running until you get to a drop-off. Here you'll want
    to jump towards the masses of coins above and activate your parachute to float
    through them. Each of the individual coins is a Red Coin (total of three), so
    target those. There's also a Flower up here. If you miss any, drop down and
    shoot eggs up to collect what you missed. The end is just a hop, skip and a
    jump away from here.
    
    
    -Item Locations-
    ~Stars:
     * Star Cloud: After the Enemy Pipe is a "?" Cloud in between two suspended
      pipes. Shoot an egg up between the pipes to break it open.
     * Crate: Found at the end of the underground cavern you can warp to from the
      pipe in front of the Cactus Piranha Plant.
     * Star Tulip: After emerging from the underground cavern, you'll find a Star
      Tulip to your left.
     * Hidden Star Cloud: Bounce off a Bullet Bill from the first cannon to the
      ledge above to find a Hidden Star Cloud.
     * Middle Ring: At the beginning of the Fuzzy Area.
     * Middle Ring: At the beginning of the Super Baby Mario Area.
    ~Red Coins:
     * 2 Red Coins: Found in the long coin line going uphill to the Pipe Area.
     * 6 Red Coins: Located at the end of the underground cavern you can warp to
      from the pipe in front of the Cactus Piranha Plant.
     * 1 Red Coin: Find this in between the first two Bullet Bill Cannons.
     * 3 Red Coins: You can locate these three Red Coins in the passage under the
      first two Bullet Bill cannons (go to the right of them).
     * 2 Red Coins: In the pits in between the Bullet Bill cannons past the first
      ones.
     * 1 Red Coin: In the first coin line you go through as Super Baby Mario.
     * 3 Red Coins: Found interspersed in the masses of coins near the end of the
      level. These are the coins separated from the large packs.
    ~Flowers:
     * Flower 1: The first Flower is found near the first Para-Koopas you encounter
      in this level.
     * Flower 2: Look for this Flower in the passage under the first two Bullet
    Bill
      cannons (go to the right of them).
     * Flower 3: In the Fuzzy Area you'll find this Flower. Look in a small hole on
      the big land formation.
     * Flower 4: After the run across the ceiling as Super Baby Mario, you'll come
      to a small cave featuring the fourth Flower.
     * Flower 5: The last Flower is found in the big groupings of coins near the
    end
      of the Level.
    
    
    -1-Up Locations-
     * At a certain point in the Fuzzy Area, the ground changes from land to
     platforms. When you reach this point of change, a Flying Shy Guy will drop by
     with a 1-Up in tow. Shoot him down with an egg or grab him with your tongue,
     but be extra careful not to hit any Fuzzies while doing so.

    -Level Walkthrough-
    You'll start the Level off outside in a single screen area with tons of Pipes.
    Shoot the Piranha Plant on the far left and go into the pipe it was on. Down
    here you'll have a chance to get a 1-Up. Wait for the arrow to point up and
    left before shooting an egg at it. It will hit the Koopa and shoot its shell,
    eventually hitting them all and scoring you a 1-Up. Go through the Flippers and
    start heading down the path. Two Red Coins are found on the way, and when you
    reach the stairs, you'll find three more on the way down. Continue right to
    come into a part of the cave filled with Lakitus and enemies. Hit the POW Block
    in the center to turn them all into stars. Above the POW Block is a Star Cloud.
    Go to the right and bounce off the Large Arrow Ball, but don't go higher than
    the small entrance to a tunnel mid-way up the wall. Inside you'll find a Crate
    and a "?" Cloud concealing a Flower. Now drop back down to the Arrow Ball and
    bounce all the way up and to the left. Here more Wall Lakitus will appear, but
    bounce off the Small Arrow Ball to hit another, hidden POW Block. Go to the far
    left of this area to find two Red Coins. Now head down the path to the right. A
    short ways down you'll see a Switch on some gray dirt. Jump up and hit the
    switch to make a warp appear right beneath it. Go in to come to a tall shaft
    that contains a long, twisting line of coins you need to collect while falling
    down. There are five Red Coins in here. After years of playing this game I've
    been able to get all the coins (both red and normal) in one drop, but it'll
    probably take you several tries if you haven't played so much, and even if you
    have. When you emerge from the area, simply go back and hit the switch again.
    Jump after the point where you emerge is an area with a "?" Cloud to the left,
    a Flower to the right, and a Koopa. While Nintendo probably wanted you to shoot
    the Koopa, thus sending its shell in one of the directions, you can get both by
    simply jumping from the dirt where the switch is found over the posts. Go into
    the next area, slurp up the first Koopa you see, and immediately spit out the
    shell. Follow it and the enemies its hit to watch it sail over a pit and into a
    tiny chamber containing a Flower. To the left of the Flower chamber is a pipe
    under some stairs. Float under to the pipe to collect the Red Coin on top, then
    go inside to find another Red Coin and the Key to the Mini-Game Hut. Warp back
    out of the pipe and continue to the left to find the Mini-Game Hut. To the
    right is the Middle Ring. Continue on to find another cave (Lakitu Cave 2).
    There are two Red Coins near the entrance. Go into the main section of the cave
    and slowly make your way down, collecting the three Red Coins along the way. At
    the bottom of the cave is a Star Cloud. Directly to the right is a pit of
    spikes, and to the right, a Flower. To get to the Flower, you'll have to hover
    over the spikes to the ledge near the end. With the low ceiling, this may look
    impossible, but it's quite doable. Now continue to the right to find a few
    Arrow Clouds. One po

    ~Stars:
     * Star Cloud: Look for this above the first POW Block.
     * Crate: Found in a small tunnel after the first Large Arrow Ball. Bounce up
      halfway and go into the tunnel midway up the left wall to find this.
     * Middle Ring: Found right after the Mini-Game Hut.
     * Star Cloud: This is found at the bottom of Lakitu Cave 2.
    ~Red Coins:
     * 2 Red Coin: Follow the path at the beginning of the cave and you'll come
      across two Red Coins.
     * 3 Red Coins: On the first set of stairs you come to, there will be three Red
      Coins.
     * 2 Red Coins: To the far left of the area with the second, hidden POW Block
      (right above the first POW Block area).
     * 5 Red Coins: These are in the tall shaft you go to by hitting the Switch.
     * 1 Red Coin: This is above the pipe to the left of the Mini-Game Hut, under a
      small section of stairs.
     * 1 Red Coin: Go into the pipe mentioned above to find a Flying Shy Guy with
      another Red Coin.
     * 2 Red Coins: Found at the entrance to Lakitu Cave 2 (where the bats fly
      down).
     * 3 Red Coins: In the main part of Lakitu Cave 2.
     * 1 Red Coin: Shoot the Arrow Cloud near the end when the one near the coin is
      pointing to the upper left to get the final Red Coin.
    ~Flowers
     * Flower 1: Found in a small tunnel after the first Large Arrow Ball. Bounce
    up
      halfway and go into the tunnel midway up the left wall to find this.
     * Flower 2: Look for this in a posted-off area after the switch. You can get
    to
      it by jumping from the dirt the switch is on over the posts.
     * Flower 3: In a tiny chamber under the Mini-Game Hut. Spit a shell from the
      start of the area to have it sail in and collect the Flower.
     * Flower 4: Float under the low ceiling above the spikes in Lakitu Cave 2 to
      reach the fourth Flower.
     * Flower 5: Shoot the Arrow Cloud near the end when the one near the Flower is
      pointing to the upper left to get the final Flower.

     *If you start the Level out by going down the far left pipe, you'll have a
      chance to get a 1-Up. An Arrow Cloud is waiting below. Wait for the arrow to
      point up and left before shooting an egg at it. It will hit the Koopa and
      shoot its shell, eventually hitting them all and scoring you a 1-Up.
     *Jump from the dirt that the switch is on and over the posts into a place
    where
      a Koopa patrols. The left "?" Cloud contain a 1-Up.

    -Level Walkthrough-
    This level features balloons, balloons, and more balloons. When you start off,
    you'll be near a series of Timed Platforms with balloons that float upward. Hop
    on one of the Balloons that rises near the start of the pit to a small platform
    on the left wall above. A Flying Shy Guy will drop by with a Red Coin. Head
    right and you'll find four more Red Coins right near the top. At the very right
    you'll spot a Flower under the platform. Float down to it then hitch a ride
    back up on a balloon. Continue on to the right to come across a few Teetering
    Logs. To the left of the first is a Red Coin, and above the second log are two
    more. After the third log is a pipe going up into a Helicopter transformation
    area. Break open the "?" Cloud to unveil the transformation, then take it up to
    the top to collect the three Red Coins above the Cactus Piranha Plant, as well
    as activate the Middle Ring. Go back down the pipe and ascend the Timed
    Platforms. To the left of one is a Red Coin. At the very top of these is a
    Flower. Jump to the right of where you find the Flower to get to a platform
    with three eggs. A Flying Shy Guy will swoop down here with a Red Coin. Go to
    the right and the climb will continue upward. Quickly jump behind the first
    Cactus Piranha Plant and snag the Red Coin from the Flying Shy Guy. Up a little
    ways is a switch. Hit it and follow the blocks it makes all the way to the left
    to find a Flower. Jump to the right to collect a Red Coin and to find a Star
    Tulip. To the right is another Cactus Piranha Plant. Defeat it then go behind
    it to find a Flower in the air. Shoot an egg to collect it. Now go on to the
    next area (where a Middle Ring greets you). This place splits into two paths:
    one that goes above, and one below. If you fall down from above, you will end
    up below. To get a 100, you'll need to take the upper path, but following the
    lower path will yield you a Crate, a Star Cloud, a ton of Coins, and several
    chances for 1-Ups. To travel the upper path, shoot the dirt holding up the
    Large Arrow Ball at the beginning of this area. Bounce up to get to the top.
    Blow up the balloon by jumping/stomping on the... um... balloon blowing-up
    thingie. When the balloon is at full size (you won't be able to blow it up any
    more), jump on top and let it take you for a ride across the sky. Try to
    collect the coins along the way, but don't risk falling for any as none are
    red. About halfway through the trip you'll come across a Flower. When the end
    is coming up a 1-Up will come near. At the very end there is a small line of
    five Red Coins. Jump to the ledge at the end. Here three Shy Guys with 1-Ups
    will float down. The goal is just to the right.

      by the switch to uncover the third Flower.
     * Flower 4: This is behind the third Cactus Piranha Plant in the level, right
      before the next area. Shoot an egg to get it.
     * Flower 5: This is found at the end of the horizontal balloon flight.
    
    
    -1-Up Locations-
     *After the second Flower, you'll come across a large grouping of Koopas. Hit
      the stationary shell with an egg and watch it go to the right. Jump on top of
      the Para-Troopa to make it lose its wings (if you didn't hit it with the
      shell). The shell will rebound and come back, hitting the rest of the Koopas
      and scoring you a 1-Up.
     *If you make it all the way to the Goal riding the balloon, you'll be rewarded
      by three 1-Up-carrying Flying Shy Guys.

       - - - - - - - - - - - - ADDITIONAL TIPS - - - - - - - - - - - -
    
       Here are a few helpful tips that you can use throughout the game.
    
    1. Use Enemies as Eggs: Enemies, when spit out of Yoshi's mouth, provide 
    pretty much the same functions than an egg has. They can burst open "?" Clouds,
    activate a Tulip Flower, or collect out-of-reach Flowers. Then can't shoot
    through dirt or grab coins, but they're helpful nonetheless. Keep an enemy in
    your mouth as a seventh egg or to help conserve your egg supply.
    
    2. Bounce Eggs for Rewards: When an egg bounces off a wall, it upgrades a color
    (green to yellow, yellow to red). An upgraded egg will shoot out coins when it
    breaks (comes into contact with an enemy), or in some cases, stars. If you have
    green eggs, bouncing the egg off two walls will increase its color and get you
    more stuff.
    
    3. Flutter Jump: Although it doesn't look like it, the Flutter Jump actually
    gives you a little extra height. In many situations, an item (usually a Flower)
    is barely out of reach from a jump. With a Flutter Jump, you can usually reach
    it.
    
    4. Bring Baby Mario Closer: When Yoshi gets hit by an enemy, Baby Mario will
    many times fly far away, sometimes even out of reach of Yoshi's tongue. In
    these cases, you can throw an Egg at Baby Mario's bubble to bring it closer.

           - - - - - - - - - - - - SECRETS - - - - - - - - - - - -
    
       Ha ha! Here are some ultra-top-secret-super-classified secrets from Yoshi's
    Island that'll get you everything you want out of the game.
    
    1. Play Mini-Games (Including 2-Player!)
    This is the biggest secret in the game, one that allows you to play any of the
    Mini-Games anytime, and also play Throw Balloons (4) and the Watermelon Seed
    Spitting Contest in 2-Player. If you'd like to find out how to get this secret
    through the game, go to Level 5-4. Head into the door to the left of the start
    of the level. Inside is a Chain Chomp, the only one in the game. Pause the game
    and use the "?" Cloud item, and a door will appear on the left side of the
    room. Enter and a face block will tell you what to do. If you're too lazy to do
    all that, you can enter the following code anytime, regardless of whether or
    not you've visited the Chain Chomp or even 5-4. On the World Map screen, simply
    hold Select and press X, X, Y, B, and A. The Mini-Game screen will pop up, and
    you can choose whatever you want to play.
    
    2. Infinite 1-Ups: Level 4-1
    There are several situations in the game where you can get a bunch of 1-Ups,
    but the easiest and most profitable is the 1-Up trick in Level 4-1. Enter the
    level, and proceed to the area where the Shy Guys pop out of the pipe. Kill the
    Piranha Plant on the pipe to the right, then grab a Koopa Troopa with your
    tongue. Stand on the right pipe and shoot an egg. Now spit the shell into the
    area between the pipes, where it'll bounce back and forth between the pipes.
    The Shy Guys will continually jump out, each producing a higher tone when
    defeated until you get a 1-Up. But wait, each Shy Guy hit after this will yield
    another 1-Up, leading to infinite 1-Ups.
    
    3. Infinite 1-Ups: Level 1-7
    This is another great 1-Up trick, because it's easy and comes sooner in the
    game than the one in level 4-1. To begin the 1-Up process, slurp up a Rolly Bug
    then head toward where the Middle Ring is (be sure to have less than six eggs).
    Go stand on the enemy pipe just tot he left of the Middle Ring and spit the
    Rolly Bug against the wall. It'll bounce of of it, jam against you, and stop.
    Next, jump off the pipe and move far enough away so that enemies can emerge.
    The Rolly Bug will try to come towards you, and in doing so will smash the
    enemies that jump out of the pipe. Just like a turtle shell, after a while
    you'll start getting 1-Ups for this.

    Before you send me stuff, however, make sure you read this first:
    1. Please look at the FAQ before you send me questions! I made the FAQ for a
    reason. It was so you could look at it, not so you could find my e-mail address
    and ask me what you want to know before you glance at it. Be sure to check the
    walkthrough to see if it can answer your question(s) before asking me.
    2. When e-mailing me, put the words "Yoshi's Island" or similar phrasing into
    the title. That would help me a lot.
    3. Feel free to send me stuff I could use for my FAQ, but don't send useless
    info that I would never need. If you send me something, be sure to include a
    name that you want me to put you down as in the Credits section. If there is no
    name, than I can guarantee your work will not show up here. Not all work will
    accepted.

                               -CLOSING STATEMENT-
    
        Even though there was Mario World, the Donkey Kong Country Series, Final
    Fantasy III, Chrono Trigger, and Mario RPG, Yoshi's Island is still probably my
    favorite game from the SNES era. It's just so incredibly fun, challenging, and
    it never gets boring. I love playing it over and over again, and hope that
    every else will too with the help of this FAQ. I'll leave you with this:
    Dangit, Nintendo, why'd you have to change the Yoshi's into the little kiddie
    wusses they are in Yoshi's Story (no, they weren't kiddie wusses in Yoshi's
    Island... wanna fight about it?)? Oh well, there's always hope in the future.
    Ta!
