- Mini Editorial -

This guide is for the select few who can actually appreciate what 
Nintendo did with Yoshi's Story for the N64. They made a game that 
toddlers can enjoy AND a game that older gamers could enjoy. But for 
some strange reason almost no one has caught on to this, they all say 
it's too easy. HA! I say, have you collected all of the melons?! Have 
you even tried? Do you EVEN know what I'm talking about? I didn't think 
so, this guide is for showing all of the melons, hearts, heart fruit, 
coins, and all of that other stuff, it's also a way to get a good High 
Score! Well, let's cut to the chase...

Version 1.1

Revision History: 
 
June 15th - Basically, I changed lots of mistakes, fixed a few sections, 
and added a Code List, which has the locations of Black Yoshi, White 
Yoshi, Purple Yoshi, and all of the White Shy Guys...plus a few other 
goodies. 

March 21st - Well, I changed the font. Spellchecked everything...that's 
it.    

God knows when - This is the first version so there aren't any!

1) Basics
-------------------------

-Story Mode-

Story Mode is what you would call the 1 player part, well actually 
everything is 1 player but that's beside the point. Each world is 
represented by a page in a six page book, the book being the game of 
course. Each page has 4 levels, regular 2D, side-scrolling fun. You can 
only play 1 level per page in one game. So an entire game is six levels, 
pretty short you must admit. 

At the first page you can select any of the four levels, after that it 
takes a Star Fox 64 like path. In each level there are hearts, if you 
collect one you can pick one more stage in the next page. Collect all 
three in a world and you can select from any of the four levels in the 
next page. When you first buy YS (like I did) I would suggest going to 
all of the levels because then you can play them all in Trial Mode 
(we're getting to that soon). I try to avoid Story Mode because of the 
terrible singing (you'll see)  and the fact you can only play six levels 
per game. This is why I usually only play....

-Trial Mode-

In this mode you can play any levels you have completed in Story Mode. 
Try playing them all in a row, whew! Doesn't seem so short now does it? 
=) There are 24 levels in all, and that should be your goal. What the 
creators intended this to be is a mode to get High Scores. You can do 
that, but I usually play this all of the time because there's absolutely 
NO singing, sucky endings, dumb level branching, or crazy pop up books! 
Amazing, isn't it? :)

-Practice Mode-

This mode takes you to an "almost level level." It teaches the basic 
techniques of the game. There are melons here, but I don't *think* you 
can get 30 of them, who knows?

-Controls-

Jump: A

Flutter Jump: Hold 'A' while in the air, to make it even longer press 
'A' after you hear his grunt

Lick: 'B' - you can use the control stick to make it go diagonal, up, 
down, or the default, sideways.

Stomp: Press down on the control stick while in the air

Sniff: 'R' - use this to look for hidden places in the ground and/or 
air.

Throwing Eggs: Press 'Z' to bring up the cursor and then press 'Z' again 
to launch an egg, the egg will not go beyond the "X." Control the "X" 
with the control stick, you can make it go as far or as close as you 
want. 

Walking/Running: Use the control stick, there is really no need to walk 
as far as I know.

Ducking: Press down on the control stick and Yoshi will duck, good to 
use in tight situations. You can walk while in this mode, ever so 
slowly.

-Throwing Eggs-

When you throw an egg it will stop at the "X" so be sure to control the 
"X" with the control stick. When an egg hits a wall or the "X" it will 
explode and cause a small radius of fire, it looks like fireworks. This 
explosion can defeat baddies, blow up blocks, and pop bubbles. Of 
course, a direct hit with an egg will do the same. The radius of the 
explosion is caused by how healthy you are, so if you're about to die it 
is very small, while if you're 100% the radius will be large. Remember 
this.

-Sniffing for Secrets-

Some levels have lots of secrets in the ground while others do not. 
Press 'R' and the camera will zoom in and Yoshi will start sniffing, 
walk around and when Yoshi starts to rapidly sniff you're getting close 
to a spot. When an "!" appears over his/her head move VERY slowly until 
Yoshi starts to hop up and down and wave at you, stomp there to find a 
secret. It may be coins, a melon, fruit, a bubble, switches, or even 
maybe a Heart.

-Mini Games-

In most levels, you will face a Mini Game. In all of them, if you win, 
you get seven melons. 

Track Meet:
Run to the end to win, your path it usually full of things to hinder 
your way. The chomp window above shows you the amount of melons you will 
get at certain times...kinda.

Special Delivery:
Remember playing that old Charlie Brown game on the SNES where you had 
to balance a bunch of pizza boxes? Same thing, just harder. For most of 
the game. this is a piece o' cake! But the last few 
levels...well...they're a @#$%^&!

Long Jump: 
This is REALLY hard if you haven't mastered the flutter jump, otherwise 
it's pretty easy. 


--------------------------------------------
2) Tips, Tricks, and Secrets
--------------------------------------------

This is going to be a numbered list

1. If you fall off a platform over a bottomless pit, flutter the best 
you can and you might be able to get back on the platform or at least on 
solid ground. I've saved myself a lot of lives this way.

2. Conserve your eggs, Egg Blocks are spread far apart. Instead of using 
an egg to defeat a baddie try a hop, or a stomp, or a lick, try 
everything. 

3. There are two different colored Yoshi's that are hidden in Story 
Mode, Black and White. They like all fruit, all shy guys, their 
explosions from eggs are really big, and last but not least, they like 
peppers.

4. While Super Happy be careful of where you pound the ground, you 
wouldn't want to turn Shy Guys into fruit therefor losing the possible 
points you couldn't got from them!

5. Yoshis have their favorite fruit, although I only eat melons (cough, 
cough! Take a hint people!). All Yoshi's love melons as well. 

Green - Water Melons
Yellow - Bananas
Red - Apples
Pink - Apples
Blue - Grapes
Light Blue - Grapes
Black - Anything, including peppers
White - Anything, including peppers

All Yoshi's like melons too, plus you get a 100 point bonus

6. If you find any White Shy Guys, take it to the end. It serves as a 
1-up of sorts.

7. You can use Bomb-ombs as eggs, plus they bounce off walls like the 
eggs in Yoshi's Island. They explode on contact, just don't tow them too 
long, or they'll "explode on contact" on you!

8. Going for the best possible score in Trial Mode can be a difficult 
task, especially because everything counts. Here is a table for your 
pleasure!

Fruit...... The points you get here are from the fruit you get. This 
            score should always be around 1395 because of the melons.

Enemies....This is the amount of points from enemies, there are many
           tricks for getting this high, mainly for Shy Guys.

Coins......You get one point per coin, collect as many as possible. When
           you get a heart fruit you get coin letters.

Hearts.....100 points per heart, three per stage. 300 points.

Melons.....100 per melon, 3,000 points!

Yoshis.....100 points for each Yoshi that is still alive, 600 points 
max.

9. Here is the Shy Guy trick I was talking about above. If you eat a Shy 
Guy you  get 1 point, if you eat a Shy Guy that is your favorite you get 
three points. If you hop on or egg a Shy Guy you get 2x as many points, 
six points if it's a favorite. Destroy many Shy Guys with one egg and 
you get tons of points!

10. I forgot to mention, favorite Shy Guys are the same color as your 
Yoshi (Red likes red, Blue likes blue, etc.). You can change the color 
of a Shy Guy by pounding the ground near it, blue, green, yellow, and 
red (not the order). Black and White Yoshi's like all Shy Guys, 
including black.

3) The Guide
----------------------

When you find a melon I will list it as (number goes here)

When you find a Heart I will list it as (Heart # "number goes here")


It's off to the guide now! Remember, all of this is melons, no grapes, 
watermelons, bananas, apples, or peppers!

NOTE: Some of the math doesn't add up right, but I played each level 
while writing these and they all seem to add up in the game...weird!

*Page 1*
Beginning

Description: 
This page in just a training ground for the later levels, it focuses on 
mini-games and pounding for melons, which includes sniffing. 

Level 1-1: Treasure Hunt

Description: 
A very straightforward level, you'll meet Poochy for the first time too!

Guide:

Go forward and hop on the Shy Guy, stomp around here for two coins. Fill 
up on eggs at the Egg Block and pop the bubble with a melon (1). Take 
care of any offending Shy Guys and jump to the upper path, take care of 
the two Shy Guys who are carrying melons - (2) and (3). 

Go to the lower path when the straight path forks, defeat the Blue Shy 
Guy who is carrying a melon (4). Go to the upper path and there is a 
melon in the ground, sniff around (5). Wake up Warp 1 by jumping on her. 
Stomp to get past the Pak. E Derm and then use the "!" balls to go up a 
steep wall, a melon (6) will drop down. Since you ate six melons in a 
row you will get a Heart Fruit. 

Grab the coins around the Pak E. Derm and stomp on the upper path, there 
is a melon (7) that will come out. Fall down, collecting the coins as 
you go, and run past the "?" Block. Go to the lower path and collect the 
two melons the Shy Guys are holding (8) and (9). Go back to the "?" 
block and hit it. 

Finish the race and you'll get 7 melons (10-17). Collect the heart fruit 
and a giant "Y" of coins will appear, collect them and run ahead, don't 
forget to wake up Warp 2. Grab the melon (18) the Blue Shy Guy is toting 
and grab the next Heart Fruit, before the Message Block is a melon in 
the ground (19).  Hop into the vase.

If you want some major points go to the upper path after Poochy and 
shoot an egg at all of those Shy Guys. If you're looking for fruit then 
pound on Poochy's stake to release him. He will rocket off, follow him. 

He will stop between two blue background things, sniff around and pound 
for a melon (20). He will stop a short while later, before a Yellow Shy 
Guy. Pound again (21). And again before the 'in front of your face 
Heart' (22). Jump at the heart (Heart # 1) and run after Poochy. 

Go to the upper path, where Poochy is going, and pound before the heart 
to find two melons (23) and (24). Grab the Heart Fruit. Pound when 
Poochy stops under the heart for a platform that lets you get to the 
Heart better (Heart # 2) and some coins. You don't really need it, but 
Poochy won't go on if you don't, ok, so he will *eventually.

Follow him downhill and he will stop between two blue things again, 
pound for yet another melon (25). Wake up Warp 3 if you want to. You 
will see a Mystery Ball in a bubble, break it open to find a Heart 
Fruit. Use the eggs to kill all of those Shy Guys for MAJOR points. 
Stomp where Poochy stops to raise a platform that lets you get to the 
"?" Block better. Hit it and five coins will come out, chase them down 
and you get a melon (26).

Follow him down the lower path to find two more melons, they are above 
bushes, you'll know when you get there - (27) and (28). Before the path 
goes up he will stop again, pound there for a platform. Jump on it and 
shoot an egg at the blue block, grab the Heart (Heart # 3). When Poochy 
stops between two blue things, again, stomp (29). Only one more to go. 
Follow Poochy as fast as you can, when the path straightens a melon will 
fall out of nowhere (30). There we go!

High Score Tips: Sniff throughout this level, there are tons of coin 
hordes, especially around Pak E. Derms and the paths Poochy ignores.


Level 1-2: Surprise!!

Description:
Another straightforward level, the only "surprise" are the balloon 
baddies near the end of the stage. 

Guide:

Go forward and defeat the Wiggler by jumping on each section, you'll get 
a melon (1). There is another floating above a yellow pipe not far from 
here (2). Fill up on eggs at the egg station, and run past the spider. 
Aim correctly and burst both bubbles, they both hold melons - (3) and 
(4). Go forward to a tree with Shy Guys on it, pound the ground and when 
they fall out egg 'em all for lots 'o points! Pound where there are 
arrows pointing different directions for a melon (5).

Pop the Mystery Ball in the bubble to reveal a switch. Trigger it and 
hop up the clouds it creates, get the Heart (Heart # 1). When you jump 
you'll probably hit the Wiggler, that means another melon (6). Grab the 
Heart Fruit and collect the line of coins, wake up Warp 1. Pound the 
ground right in the middle of the tree to get another melon (7). Beyond 
the pipe is another wiggler which means another melon (8). 

After a Message Block there are some blue blocks, bust them open and 
then hit the Mystery Ball. Go down the vase. Complete the Special 
Delivery game to get seven melons (8-15). Grab the Heart Fruit, collect 
coins, and hop down the vase!

Do a bit of backtracking and collect the melon above the wiggler, then 
defeat him - (16) and (17). Go ahead now, collect the Heart Fruit in the 
bubble and then go to the yellow pipe. Either wait for the effect to 
wear off or don't get it at all! Get on the yellow pipe and stomp, a 
Heart will appear (Heart # 2). When the Shy Guys come pouring down take 
them out too. Keep running until the page flips.

Now, run forward and push the Mystery Crate out of the way so you can 
stomp it for a melon (18). Collect the Heart Fruit and run to the next 
crate, egg it and defeat the Air Bag for a melon (19). It's useful to be 
Super Happy because you don't lose any eggs. Stomp the next crate to 
find another melon (20). Only 10 more to go! Hit the Mystery Ball in the 
bubble to get a raising platform ghost thingie, press up and collect the 
Heart (Heart # 3) and the coins.

Get the Heart Fruit in the bubble and stomp so all of the Shy Guys and 
bubbles get out of the way. When you see a crate jump to the ledge, push 
the 2nd crate ontop of the 1st one for two melons - (21) and (22). Use 
the blue platforms to get to the next section, hit the crate with an egg 
and defeat the Air Bag (23). 

Stomp the crate and get a melon (24). Get the Heart Fruit. The next part 
is simple, hit the mystery ball in the bubble to get a platform guy. Go 
up and collect the coins, two Fly Guys are above and they BOTH have 
melons, grab them - (25) and (26). Go forward and collect the penguins, 
they are handy for taking on the Air Bag in the next crate (27). Go to 
the mystery ball in a bubble, knock it to the right side with your 
tongue. Bust it open and collect the five coins, they will be easy to 
get since they will all fall into the little aclove (28). Continue and 
kill the Air Bag (29) and then the Mystery Ball behind the vase has a 
melon (30). Good job!

HighScore Tips: There are lots of coin hordes around here, sniff around!


Level 1-3: Rail Lift

Description:
This is the first stage with moving cloud platforms and large portions 
of pits, be careful. The long switch chain at the end can be confusing, 
at the first time, if you don't have this guide. 

Guide:

Go ahead and fill up on eggs, you'll need some. Make your way past the 
Shy Guys on Stilts by using the "!" balls. You won't see any melons for 
awhile, but the first one is carried by a Blue Shy Guy (1). The next one 
is found in a mystery ball (2), don't worry, it has a parachute on it. 
Pound on the "-->" sign to find another melon (3).

Hit the melon in the bubble with your tongue over the ground and break 
it with an egg, it drops without a 'chute (4). When you get to some "!" 
balls by a steep wall look up using the control stick, you will see a 
Mystery Ball high in the air. Break it to reveal a switch, hit it. Use 
the "!" balls that appear to get to a bunch of clouds with a Bee (Bee 1) 
and a Heart (Heart # 1). Hit the switch and follow the clouds to the 
next part. A Fly Shy is carrying a melon (5). Go to the next page.

Pound where Poochy is for a melon (6). Get the Heart fruit and hop on 
the cloud and get the melon below it with your tongue (7). Drop down to 
the ground and get on the cloud that is circling a line. Hit the red 
switch with an egg to open the line. You'll get three melons along the 
way: (8), (9), and (10). Go to the next section.

Complete the almost too easy Special Delivery for 7 melons (11-18). Grab 
the melon by the line (19). Hit the switch with an egg so the track 
opens and the ball goes away, hit the bubble for a Heart (Heart # 2). 
Another melon is in a bubble (20). If I were you I would just ignore the 
next Mystery Ball, but don't forget about it. Hop on the clouds and take 
a ride, if you fall it means death. There are four easy melons along the 
way (20-24). At the end jump and get the Heart (Heart # 3).

Put your "X" right on the switch and let the egg go, the cloud will come 
to you. Along the way are another four melons, and the first one will 
trigger a Heart Fruit (25-27). You can get them even easier, with that 
long tongue and all. At the end is a melon in a bubble (28). Use Warp 4 
to get back to Warp 3, go to the bubble I told you to ignore. 

Hit it and trigger the switch, run over the clouds and get on the cloud. 
Hit the switch and the second you think you can get to land, jump! Hit 
the next switch and let the cloud come to you, when it gets at the high 
point jump to land, quickly run to the red pipe, there are two melons 
waiting for you - (29) and (30).
 
Level 1-4: Tower Climb

Description:
The first vertical stage, lots of cannons, platforms, clouds, and best 
of all, melons.

Guide:

Run over to the right and fill your energy with the power flower. Hop 
onto a helicopter pad and fly up to the ledge with the Egg Block, load 
up your eggs. A ledge over it has a melon (1). Keep going up until you 
see Ms. Warp, run to the right of her to trigger some melons for later. 
Across from Ms. Warp is a tunnel with a melon at the end (2). At the top 
collect the five coins from the "?" Block to get a melon (3).

I usually try to avoid the umbrella, so jump over it. Flutter to a far 
ledge for another melon (4). Jump to the left and you will land on a 
ledge with an apple, stomp here for a melon (5). Drop down for the two 
melons you activated earlier - (6) and (7). Fall and flutter to the 
melon in a bubble blow the egg block ledge (8). Drop down, and past the 
blue blocks is a place where there are two cannons and a lucky fruit, 
pound here (9). 

Fall and hold right, you will fall on a ledge. Pound here for a melon 
(10). Enter the wooden door. There are three melons in this room (10-
13). Follow the path until you get to a Mystery Crate, bust it open and 
head down the pot. Complete the easy mini-game for 7 melons (14-21). 
When you re-appear use the "!" balls to go up to a ledge with a coin on 
it, there is a melon in the ground (22). At the top is a Heart (Heart # 
1).

Fall down to where Poochy is, there are two melons here. One on the 
ledge with Poochy (23) and one on the Ledge above the Egg Block, with 
the single coin. Use the "!" balls to reach the narrow exit above.

Use the Tulip to go to the upper clouds, three melons and a Heart await 
(Heart # 2)  (23-25). Fall down and land on the ledge with Ms. Warp # 3, 
enter the door. Jump above a cloud and hold up while fluttering, you 
will soar high. Along the way is a Heart (Heart # 3) and three melons on 
clouds, one to the left, the right, and at the end (25-29). Then the 
final one in a bubble before the pot (30).  


*Page 2*
Cavern

Description:
The 2nd page's theme is underground stuff, lava, and pipes. Pretty 
varied. The first stage is a cave, the 2nd a lava world, the 3rd a pipe 
level, and the 4th a water pipe level.

Level 2-1: Bone Dragon Pit

Description:
Well, it's basically an underground cave stage. 

When you see three nippers, pound on the white spot for a melon (1). 
When you defeat the hordes of nipper spores and nipper you get a melon 
(2). Go up the hill and defeat the Bone Dragon for loads of coins. When 
you get to a melon on a spore be careful, jump and lash out the tongue 
so it hits the melon and NOT a nipper spore, you don't want it going 
down the brink (3)! Pound where Poochy is for a Heart (Heart # 1). 

Before the blue blocks there is a white light on the ground, pound for 
some platforms. Follow them to an Egg Block and a melon (4). Go forward 
and get the Heart Fruit in a bubble, break open the next bubble for five 
coins, when collected they yield a melon (5). After Warp 2 is a melon as 
well (6), and a Bone Dragon that can be difficult to hit. After walking 
a few feet Lakitu will drop in, reply with an egg and use his cloud to 
reach a vase above.

Enter it with full eggs, defeat the Sub Boss for three melons (6-9). 
There is a tenth melon in the white space when you drop back down (10). 
One of the rock creatures is guarding a melon in a bubble (11), and 
another melon is in the ground before the vase. You guessed it, it's in 
the white space (12). Hop into the vase.

Fall down and destroy all of the blue blocks with eggs, in the next room 
are two melons - (13) and (14). In the side is a room with two melons in 
bubbles - (15) and (16). Go below the "platform makers" and follow the 
path to a ledge with a bubble, hit it to reveal a switch. Hit it and 
collect the Heart (Heart # 2). Use the platform makers to go to the very 
top path, fall down the shaft and hold left. Enter the vase.

Complete the easy special delivery mini game for seven melons (16-23). 
Exit the mini game. You will see some coins and a white light, shoot an 
egg into this to get a melon (24). The rest of the melons are in this 
next room, either in the platforms with white lights on them or in 
bubble above a platform (25-30). The 3rd Heart is won from a Sub Boss in 
a room after this room (Heart # 3). 

Level 2-2: Blargg's Boiler

Description:
The first time for lava, if you fall in you die (who didn't know that?). 
It can get kinda tricky because many bubble hold melons and if you miss 
them when they fall out they fall into the lava...

You can get past all of the Blargg's in this stage by hitting them with 
an egg. After running for awhile you will come to a bubble with a melon 
(1). After that there is a Heart below a bone, get on the bone and when 
it sinks you will collect the Heart (Heart # 1). The 2nd melon is 
carried by a Fly Shy (2). Shortly after that is a message block, pound 
near it for another (3). Another Shy Fly is carrying a melon (4). If you 
miss and eat him the melon will go into the lava!

Jump and get the cursor so that it will hit the bubble and Blargg, while 
fluttering in the air shoot it for a melon (5). The bone platform right 
after that has a melon below the coin (6). Eat the Heart Fruit and 
follow the trail of coins, two melons are floating in the air on the 
long stretch - (7) and (8). The 9th one does NOT have a parachute, 
better catch it (9)! I suggest getting below it and pushing up when you 
lick. 

Go to the end and warp through the pot. Hit the bubble and collect the 
coins for a melon (10), if you don't get them in one smooth jump they'll 
go into the lava and be lost. There's a melon in the ground below the 
hovering coin (11).  Hop on the ball and ride it over the lava, you'll 
get a melon at the end (12). Pound near the Egg Block for treasure (13). 

This next melon can be difficult to get, it's right over the lava in a 
bubble without a 'chute...just aim carefully (14). Behind the Blargg is 
a Heart, when he goes down shoot an egg at it (Heart 2). Behind the bone 
above the Heart is a melon in the ground, near the bananas (15). Another 
melon here is difficult to get, it has a parachute but it is dangerously 
close to the lava and you are on collapsing bones...(16).

If you haven't guess it yet, there is ANOTHER MELON IN THE GROUND (17) 
by the Egg Block...Nintendo went a little crazy with this melon in the 
ground thing! The next part is the toughest part yet, there are three 
Shy Flys carrying melons above the air while you are riding the ball. If 
you miss the melon falls into the lava, aim VERY carefully. (18-20). 

When you get to the end pound below the blue pipe (21). Enter the pipe 
and complete the Mini-Game for seven melons, pretty easy really (22-28). 
Go down the exit pot. Go to the left and be careful of the wandering 
Blargg, get the melon he is guarding oh so well (29). Go back to the 
right and get the Heart by standing on the collapsing bone (Heart # 3). 
Pound near the exit for the final, easy melon (30). 


Level 2-3: Jelly Pipe

Description:
Very original, also very short. At the first part jelly hinders your 
path, stomp and it will go down some.

Guide:

There are two ways of doing this, I think this way is more 
straightforward and easy.

Run forward and fill up on eggs and energy via the power flower. Hit the 
"?" Block from underneath ten times (getting a coin for each time) for a 
melon (1). Pound the ground on the jelly so you can get under the 
spikes. Go down and push the Mystery Crate against the wall, jump on it 
and flutter to the top. Get the Heart (Heart # 1) and the melon in the 
ground near it (2). Go back down and stomp the crate (3). 

Drop ALL the way down, take a right. When you see the blue slime that 
you can't see through look at the section to the far left, stomp so you 
can see a melon (4). Push the Mystery Crate into the slime and a melon 
will pop out (5). Ignore the exit and look above the message block, 
there is a "!" ball there, use it to get to the top. Shove the Mystery 
Crate up there into the slime (6). Follow the path right for a melon (7) 
and a pot, hop on in.

Defeat the Sub Boss for a Heart (Heart # 2). Go back and exit through 
the hole, or use Ms. Warp. Go back until you get to the place where you 
fall forever, the first time hold left and flutter to the opening, fall 
down this separate shaft and hold right for a melon (8). Drop down and 
get into the tunnel. Go forward and collect the melon in the bubble (9) 
and head downwards. Hit the mystery ball for five coins, collect them 
for the 10th melon (10). 

Head left but ignore Poochy, use the platforms to go up above the 
mystery crate. Along the way is a melon (11). Push the mystery crate, 
you will see some boos along the way. Hold down so they go up and above 
you, collect their melon (12). Push the crate down the platforms and 
when there is dead space push it all the way down, right into the goo 
(13). Pay Poochy a visit and stomp where he is for some blue platforms, 
follow them up. Before jumping up to where the Heart is, stomp for a 
melon (14). 

Jump and flutter up there for another melon in a bubble (15). Get the 
Heart (Heart # 3), it requires an egg because of the blue blocks though. 
Use the "!" ball and get up, go to the right, this place should look 
familiar. Get the Boo's booty (16). Hit the blue blocks and get ready 
for a load of melons. By following the path you will collect five 
melons, from bubbles and boos (17-22). Get the Heart Fruit and run down 
the platforms and hit the blue blocks to get to a room with three 
bubbles, three melons (23-26). Go down and get the melon from the boos 
(27) and go right to the dead end, pound here (28). Go left to find a 
crate on a ledge, push it and fall down the shaft. Push it to the other 
crate for two melons (29) and (30). 

  
Level 2-4: Torrential Maze

Description:
Currents of water will push you down tunnels and you must fight them to 
collect the tricky melons. At first you won't get much, but at the end 
you get bunches of them {melons}.

Guide:

Go forward and load up on eggs, hop up the blue platforms and turn 
right. Push the two crates together to get two melons (1) and (2). Hop 
on the copters and ride them up to collect a melon (3). Turn a sharp 
left to avoid the spikes on the ceiling, go up there and collect the 
Heart in the aclove (Heart # 1). Jump and flutter up to the tunnel above 
it, go in.

Wait for a ghost platform to appear where you are and when it does 
QUICKLY climb up and jump over the wall. Below the platform makers is a 
melon (4). Ride 'em up and then switch over, collect the two melons that 
come floating down (5) and (6). When you get to the top jump over the 
barrier and land on a ghost, aim your tongue down to lick a melon (7). 
Before the ghost vanishes jump up and into the hole, now turn the page. 

Here you must jump over gaps that lead to death, but the problem is the 
water. Every few seconds water will come gushing out and try to knock 
you over, time it right and don't mess around. Ignore the crate and jump 
up the platforms to go to the upper level. Shoot all of the blue blocks, 
the last one will hold a switch, trigger it. Push the crate across the 
clouds and down the hole, it will land in front of the one you ignored. 
Push 'em together - (8) and (9)! 

Reload your eggs and continue, I would bust the melon in the bubble 
because one time I bounced off of it and went "bye bye." At the end is a 
tunnel, go into it and flip the page! Break open the blue blocks and 
push the crate over the edge, it will fall into the goo (10). Push the 
2nd one into it as well (11). Lots of melons from crates, huh? Fall down 
the path and watch out for the purple things, water will be pushing you 
along and the control is now somewhat erratic. At the end are two 
bubbles, pop them and climb the "!" balls that appear. At the end is a 
Heart (Heart # 2). 

Now go back down and go to the end, get the melon in the goo (12). When 
you appear push the crate over the edge and it will connect with another 
one, the result is two melons - (13) and (14). Turn left and keep going, 
go to the upper left hand corner of the screen. Fall down the shaft by 
the "!" ball, hold right to enter a vine room. At the bottom is a melon 
(15). Now go back down the shaft, follow the blue platforms and "!" 
balls to a copter, use it to go up the shaft to find a melon (16). 

Go back to where you got melons 13 and 14, turn right instead of left 
now. Go down and follow the path to some brown platforms, look up and 
jump on the ledge. The ledge with three coins has a melon in it, sniff 
around (17). Fall down and hit the "?" Block, collect the coins that go 
to the right so they don't get away. The others will bunch up to the 
right. Collect them all for a melon (18). When sliding down hop on the 
next ledge and pop the bubble (19). After falling down a tunnel hold 
right to get to  room with some goo and a melon (20).

Fall all the way down to come to a new room, a melon is in the red glop 
(21). Hop onto the ghosts and get to the thin piece of wood, jump up to 
get a Heart (Heart # 3). There is another aclove like that with a melon 
in it (22) but it requires swift fluttering or a nice ghost. Use a ghost 
(or a flutter) to scale the wall, throw an egg where Poochy is to reveal 
a Tulip. Shoot yourself at the top and flip the page.

Eat both Fly Shys so when you get a Heart Fruit and stomp you don't 
accidentally eat the fruit they turn into. Shoot an egg, collect the 
melons, get the Heart Fruit, do one big stomp and collect all eight 
melons (23-30)!

Summit

Description:
Sky and snow levels

Level 3-1: Cloud Cruising

Description:
At the first part you will need to advance higher by using the snakes, 
everytime you hop on them they change directions. For example, if you're 
going up and you hop and land on them they will start going down.  

Guide:

This stage is sooo easy. Hop on the blue snake and collect the three 
melons in a row (1-3). The 1st cloud (the one to the very left) has a 
melon, stomp for it (4). Hop on and ride the pink snake, switch to next 
one. When switching to the 3rd one collect the melon in the air (5). 
Ride the 3rd snake up to collect two melons (6) and (7). Hit the bubble 
for a Heart (Heart # 1). Hop on the next blue snake and ride it to the 
very right (if you're having trouble avoiding the Shy Flys, try an egg), 
fall down and enter the pot.  

You'll get to a place where TONS of Shy Flys will charge in at you, 
destroy them with eggs to get five melons (8-12). Don't worry if you 
don't get them all in one pass, they'll be back shortly. Make sure none 
of the fruit they're carrying falls into the middle, you wouldn't want 
to accidentally eat them! If one does, go left or right and come back, 
they should disappear. Head into the pot to turn the page again. 


Hop up the clouds and enter the pipe, pound one of the clouds for a 
Heart (Heart 2). Go back out to where the dragon is, don't bother 
collecting any melons though, you'll come back here soon. Along the 
course you'll see a switch pad, hit it with an egg and go up the 
platforms that appear, go into the pot. Wait a second or two and another 
pad will come, hit it and jump on EVERY cloud that appears. By the time 
you get to the top and collect the Heart (Heart 2) and all the melons, 
you'll have collected 10 melons (12-22). Go down and down the pot, 
you'll appear at the dragon. Use him to cross the sky and collect the 
rest of the melons they are in bubbles and in mid-air. If you need any 
eggs eat the bees that come your way (22-30).


Level 3-2: The Tall Tower

Description:
A big....um...tower! :) Near the end you'll find lots of spiked balls, 
and your good ol'e pals the Ravens. 

Guide:

You may want to turn the volume down a bit on this one (ew...nasty 
music!) to save your sanity. I won't go into details, but before you get 
to the pot, you should have collected nine melons (1-9) and a Heart 
(Heart # 1). The next 'grueling' test is the leaf, hop on and go to the 
next platform, pound for a melon (10). get on the next leaf and ride it 
to a Mini-Game! Complete the easy Track Event for seven melons (11-17). 
Use the leaf to get a Heart (Heart # 2) before hoping in the vase.

Collect the two melons and then follow the path to find two bubbles side 
by side - (18) and (19). Hit them both for two melons - (20) and (21). 
You'll find a melon in a bubble (22) and anther one in the air (23). 
Soon you'll come to a TeeHee butterfly, behind it are some platforms, 
sniff around and pound (24). Use the Heart Fruit's powers to get past 
the Shy Flys, springs, Ravens, and all of that other nasty stuff. Soon 
you'll come to a large spring, jump and follow the coins to a Heart 
(Heart # 3). Behind the spring are some platforms, use them to get up 
the large balls...uh...yeah. There is a melon above one (25). Keep 
going, and hop on the play dough looking platform, to the left is a 
melon (26). This next part can be tricky, but it's easy anyways. When 
the Raven is at the bottom of the ball, hit the "?" Block a few times 
and a melon will come out (27). Another melon in a bubble (28). Get past 
the balls and a large spiked ball (too many balls!!) and get on top of 
the sign, stomp for a melon (29). The final melon is in a bubble before 
the end...yay (30)!  

Level 3-3: Poochy And Nippy

Description: 
Every game needs a snow level! Well...it's kinda like a snow level...

Guide:

Run forward and get on the see saws. Look up and climb the "!" ball for 
a Heart (Heart # 1). Run some more and be prepared for four Fly Shys 
that are gonna come in, defeat them all in one egg for a melon (1). 
Complete the easy Min-Game for seven melons (2-8). Collect the Heart 
Fruit and run as fast as you can forward and hop on the logs, shoot at 
the blue blocks, since you have un-limited eggs you won't waste any! A 
Heart will appear (Heart # 2).

Collect the 2nd Heart Fruit from the Fly Shy and collect the coins, go 
to the log with a bubble near it. Hit it and lash out your extra long 
tongue to get the melon (9), all while teetering on a see saw. Go into 
the vase. There is a melon in a bubble above a blue pipe (10). Collect 
the five coins from the nearby "?" block for another melon (11). Yet 
another melon can be found by pounding where the Power Flower is (12). 
Go to the path that Poochy is on, go through the vase.

Pound on the Power Flower for another melon (13). A nice Red Shy Guy is 
carrying a melon, grab it (14). Beware of the constant downpour of bombs 
from the goonies, if you get hit once you could very well get hit again. 
A Shy Fly teases you with a melon above (15). Push the crates together 
for two melons - (16) and (17). Go through the vase that Poochy is by.

This next part might get a little confusing, hop on the shortest row of 
blue blocks. Look to your left and shoot the block that Yoshi is looking 
at, a melon appears (18). Destroy the top block on the right, and then 
the new top one. Kill the Shy Guy that appears and destroy the new top 
one, a melon appears (19). A melon is being toted by a nearby Shy Fly, 
aim carefully (20). Before going into the vase that Poochy is near, 
pound where the Power Flower is (21). 

This next part is easy, push the crate all the way to the other side 
where the finish line is. When a goonie is coming stop pushing and it's 
bomb will go slightly in front of you! You reward is a melon (22). Pound 
on the Power Flower for another melon (23). Hop on a goonie and take a 
ride, going to the left that is. Along the way will be three melons in 
bubbles (23-26). Or...you could get below them and flutter jump up and 
hit them with eggs, you'll get them anyways. Go on the path 
where...Poochy is!

Going down the natural stairs you will see a Flower Power, yeah, you 
guessed it pound it (27). Collect the masses of coins and hop on a 
goonie. Above you'll find the rest of the melons and a Heart (Heart # 3) 
(28-30). 

Level 3-4: Frustration

Description:
It's another snow level. The only part where frustration will occur is 
at the end when you try the mini-game!

Guide:

Hop on the giant wheel and turn it by running, hop over the gaps and 
make your way across the gorge. Along the way you'll find a melon (1) 
and a Heart (Heart # 1). At the end is a staircase, follow it to some 
teeter totters. Here you will find two melons - (2) and (3). At the end 
are lots of blue blocks, the uppermost one has a melon too (4). You will 
once again meet the Shy Flys, kill them all with one egg for a melon 
(5). Next is a race, hit the "?" Block and hop in the wheel, along the 
way you will find three melons, plus the seven for the race and that's 
10 melons (6-15)! Go through the exit.

Go to the upper path and it will make a melon on the lower path appear, 
just be careful of the two worms (16). Before hopping up the wall pound 
for a melon (17). Avoid the penguins and push the melon in the bubble 
over safe ground and then pop it (18). Break the blue blocks and then 
the bubble for a Heart (Heart # 2). 

Collect the penguin ammo and then get the melon AND the Heart Fruit in 
the bubbles (19). While Super Happy break the blue blocks and get the 
melon, it's easier this way because of the worm (20). Another melon is 
found above the red pipe (21). At the end of the path is a bubble with a 
Heart (Heart # 3) and a melon in the ground (22). This next mini-game is 
the hardest and most insane yet, here's a few tips: Before the paths 
split make the melons completely straight so you don't have to run 
forward or backwards, after he passes wait a few seconds, get it leaning 
forward and run to the end (23-29). Pound where Poochy is for the last 
melon (30).

Jungle

Description:
Tropical Jungles with all kinds of weird stages. I think this is where 
Nintendo went insane from the cute, fluffy stuff. 

Level 4-1: Jungle Hut

Description:
A large hut place with many side areas where you collect melons.

Guide:

Very Non-Linear stage here. From the start go right and into the hut. 
You can find three melons in blue blocks, instead of wasting eggs on 
them all just stand on top of them and sniff (1-3). One will also appear 
if you get all of the coins (4). And a fifth one can be found in the 
back of the hut (5). Go back to the beginning. 

Go to the left, all the way until you get to a hut. There is one in the 
back (6). Stomp for a Heart Fruit if you want to. In the hut you can get 
four melons, three from bubbles and one for collecting all of the coins 
(6-10). Go back via the lower path.

Make your way to the right until you get to some blue blocks, break them 
open and go through the pipe. Flutter jump to the roof of the hut, a 
melon awaits you (11). Head into the hut. Four melons can be found in 
bubbles (12-15). Go up the platforms to the right to go up a pipe and 
get a Heart (Heart # 1). Hop up and right to another hut. Four melons 
can be found, three in blocks and one for collecting the coins (16-19).  
This hut has a ton of Gabons so be careful, lots of balls are rolling 
all over the place! Go back to the main section via the lower path.

Hop up on some platforms to discover a tulip, use it on the upper right 
hand corner to get a Heart, where you will arrive above another Heart 
(Heart # 2). Flutter jump to it (Heart # 3). Flutter to the upper 
section and go left towards the hut. Five melons can be found here, two 
in bubbles, two by themselves, and one in the back (20-24). Just be 
careful of the chomps, they can come out of no where and surprise you. 
Go back to the main section.

Jump up to the next platform and go up the green pipe, this is the final 
hut. Climb to the top being careful not to touch any spiders. At the top 
is a switch, trigger it and grab the rest of the melons. Be careful, 
they only last a limited time! (25-30).

Level 4-2: Jungle Puddle

Description:
They should've named THIS level frustration, the last section with the 
blurps can be VERY frustrating indeed.

Guide:

Go forward and over the platforms, bust open the first bubble for a 
Heart (Heart # 1). Dive into the water and collect the three coins, a 
melon will appear (1). Jump out and get the bubble for another (2). Get 
back on land and pop open the bubble and collect all five coins that 
spill out (3). Get back into the water and dive deep for a water melon 
(4). Go back on land and go to the trio of Mystery Crates, stomp the 
middle one (5) and push the last two together - (6) and (7). 

Follow the line of coins from the Heart Fruit that drops down until you 
see another melon in a bubble (8), which is your cue to dive deep into 
the water and snatch the Heart (Heart # 2). Near Warp 2 is another 
bubble melon (9). Go on land and find the switch, hit it and many coins, 
plus a melon (10), will appear. Collect them all and hop down the vase, 
it's time for some cussing!

Go forward and eat the melon in plain site (11). Push the crate on top 
to the one on the bottom, be VERY careful when doing this... - (12) and 
(13). I bet you just got ate by that fish! After walking a little bit a 
blue fish will replace the red one, this one spits water and attempts to 
knock you into it's mouth. Hit the bubble and get the coins that come 
out (14). Then go back and jump into the water, head down the pipe.

Complete the pretty tough mini-game for seven melons (15-21). The next 
three melons are in bubbles (21-24). Then one is in the ground shortly 
after an Egg Block. Then run and quickly push the crate to the other 
one, this one really tests your patience because that @#$%^&! blue fish 
is spitting water and you're pushing the crate at about .01 inches a 
second, move around a little and you can push it a few feet if you're 
good. At the end you get two melons - (25) and (26). Then another bubble 
(27). Pound the ground for another (28). That's funny...I completed the 
stage...ah, who cares....hehe...


Level 4-3: Piranha Grove

Description:
What, you think they can have a Mario (related to Mario games at least) 
game without Piranha Plants?! Blasemphy! 

Guide:

Get up the blue platforms and collect six eggs, use them to defeat two 
piranhas and get four  melons from bubbles (1-4). Reload and go to the 
Mystery Crate, push it to the next, defeating three piranhas (5) and 
(6). Flip the page!

At the second log stomp for a few platforms up to a Heart (Heart # 1). 
By Warp 2 stomp for a melon (7). After that get the melon that floats by 
(8). Another one (without a parachute) is in a bubble (9). Go to the egg 
block and reload, stomp for a melon (10) and hop on the platforms. Ride 
them up to another bubble (11). Defeat the piranha and hit the "?" Block 
a few times (12). Get the Heart Fruit and motor it to the next log and 
stomp (13). Defeat all the piranhas you can, they are very annoying. Get 
on the platforms and go even higher, stomp on the next log (14). Ride 
'em up!

Hit the bubble for a Heart (Heart # 2). Hit the next log (25). Jump and 
follow the coins down. Head down the vase.  Defeat all the plants and 
stomp for a melon (16). Reload your eggs and head for the balls, a melon 
in a bubble awaits (17). Get on the last ball and roll to the "?" block, 
hit it and collect the coins that spew out (18). Another one is in a 
bubble (19). Get the Heart Fruit and kill everything you see!

Hop on the ball and ride it down the spikes and stuff, hop into the vase 
at the end. Defeat all of the piranhas before taking on the Mini-Game, 
easy melons (20-26). The other three are in melons, the final one by 
Warp 4. The Heart is also along the way, hit it with an egg (Heart # 3) 
(27-30).


Level 4-4: Neuron Jungle

Description:
I don't wanna know what Nintendo was drinking when they made this level. 
Neurons are those big, multicolored creatures that help you "reach new 
heights." Oh brother...

Guide:

Go forward and enter the pipe. O.K...Go straight to two Red Neurons, 
pound one down to collect the Heart (Heart # 1) and then go down and 
load up on eggs. Jump on the Purple Neuron and collect the melon (1). Go 
to Warp 1 and stomp near the "<--" sign to get another melon (2). Return 
to the Blue Neuron, go down to a purple one and get the melon (3). 
You'll see a big Blue Neuron going back and fourth, get on top of him 
and hop left, a melon will drop down (4). Continue left to find another 
Neuron, stomp him down to reveal a path, follow it. The small island 
with a "-->" sign on it has a melon (5). Above the vase is a melon in a 
bubble (6), hop down the vase.

The trick to this Mini-Game is not to swim, but to flutter jump from the 
top of the posts. Still, it *might* be possible to swim to the end, but 
I've never succeeded that way (7-13), exit. Follow the path forward 
until you see a "?" bubble, hit it to reveal a switch. Activate it and 
stomp the nearest Neuron, collect the three melons that appeared (14-
16). Go past the fallen neuron to find a path, go left to find a melon 
in a bubble (17). Head right and stomp the Red Neuron, get the Heart 
with a well aimed egg (Heart # 2). There are two paths to take, they 
both have a melon at the end - (18) and (19). There is a melon above an 
Orange Neuron, before the vase (20). 

Hop in the wooden boat (you don't have to though) and go through the 
river, near the end of your ride is a melon (21). Reload your eggs at 
the Egg Block and go to the long stretch of land. Pound before the 
Purple Sea Cactus for a melon (22). The next platform has a bubble in 
it, pop it and get the five coins for a melon (23). After that there is 
a bubble moving over a big pile of sea cacti, two eggs will do the trick 
(one to pop the bubble, another to collect the Heart) (Heart # 3). Hop 
in the water and take a swim, but watch out, some of the cacti will fall 
down on you! You'll spot a melon, on your way, too (24)! Follow the coin 
line to a dead end, pound for a melon (25). Defeat all of the frogs in 
the next area, so they won't interfere. Hit the "?" Block a couple of 
times and a melon will pop out (26). 

You'll come to a huge structure that is absolutely CRAWLING with frogs, 
defeat them all while collecting the coins, the central island has a 
melon (27) as well. Use the boat to do the next part, it is better 
because if you get hit you don't fall down the cliff (underwater cliff, 
that is). You'll get a melon in the air (28) and another is carried by a 
Shy Fly, aim carefully (29)! The last melon in this level is triggered 
by collecting all of the coins in the stage, which is rather easy 
because none of them are in the ground, they're all in the air and such 
(30).       


*Page 5*
Ocean

Description:
The first two levels are water based and the last two are land based

Level 5-1: Lots O' Jelly Fish!

Description:
Yep, it's true. Lots o' Jellyfish! Check out all the crevices too, there 
are melons and other items hidden there.

Guide:

Go ahead and hop into the pipe! Swim until there is a wide open spot, 
it's at the top (1). Swim into the crevice almost directly under it, 
you'll get another melon (2) and a Heart (Heart # 1). You'll find two 
crevices, each has a melon - (3) and (4). Dive into the next one to find 
three melons together (4-7). Get the Heart to the left (Heart # 2). Go 
down and right for two more - (8) and (9). Another one is in a corner 
when you enter, it's hard to miss (10). Swim through the horizontal red 
pipe.

Avoid the Snorkel fish and get to the other pipe. Go straight to find a 
melon under a Jelly Fish (11). Swim awhile and go down another crevice 
to find the 3rd Heart (Heart # 3). A tunnel above has a melon at the end 
(12). Find the yellow pipe and go in. Win the pretty easy Mini-Game for 
seven melons (13-19). Go down the vase. Two melons are among the sea 
cacti - (20) and (21). Make a third in one of the tunnels (22). You'll 
find a yellow pipe soon. Go backwards and pound to get a melon (22). Get 
ready to be assaulted by Shy Flys! You should find the rest here (23-
30).

Level 5-2: Lots O' Fish!

Description:
The traveling takes place underwater, but the bulk of the melons are 
through pipes that lead above ground.

Guide:

Swim forward and then up to meet a green pipe. Go to the "<--" sign and 
stop, jump on the platforms that appear. Break the blue block and push 
the two Mystery Crates together - (1) and (2). Pound near Poochy to get 
another (3). Follow the path until you get to an octopus, collect the 
melon in his poisonous tentacles (4). Go down the pipe near him. You'll 
get seven melons from the fish that come to you, and if you defeat them 
all you get a Heart (Heart # 1) (5-11). Exit.

Swim up until you reach a red pipe, go up it. Sniff by the bees and hit 
the blue block and the switch. Get the gobs of coins and the two melons 
-  (12) and (13). Exit back into the nice cool water. Swim diagonally 
down to find another squid with a melon (14). Follow the path and dive 
down to get to a green pipe by a clam, enter it.

Get the melon the Shy Guy is carrying (15) and then stomp on the "<--" 
sign for a switch, hit it for two melons - (16) and (17). Swim left for 
a Heart (Heart # 2), when you collect it three melons will drop down 
(18-20). Swim by the path and you'll meet another squid (21). Go up the 
final, blue pipe. 

Pound near Poochy for another melon (22). Get by the Hornet's nest and 
shoot at it, you'll get another melon (23) and probably get whacked by 
the hornets. Complete the simple Mini-Game, here's  a hint if you're 
stumped though, sniff to get past the bees (24-30). Hit the bubble 
before you gobble down the melons and you'll get a Heart (Heart # 3). 

Level 5-3: Shy Guy Limbo

Description:
Here, Shy Guys have Limbo sticks and you must jump over them. How low 
can YOU go?

Guide:

This might sound weird, but go forward and then come back. Wait for the 
Lakitu to come by, dodge his shots and he'll drop down some melons. Go 
back when he gets near the bottomless pits, go back and wait for him to 
come back. Keep doing this until you get five melons (1-5). Now go 
forward. Go past all of the Shy Guys and grab the melon in the air (6). 

Hit the bubble in the hole for another melon (7). Go to the "!" balls 
and jump near the lucky fruit, a bubble will pop out of thin air. Hit it 
for a melon (8). When you are on the last "!" ball, jump high and put 
your tongue up, you'll grab onto another one. Go into the pipe. Do the 
VERY EASY Mini-Game for seven melons (9-15). 

Follow the coins down. Collect the five coins from the bubble in the 
valley for a melon (16). Pound in the middle of the valley for another 
melon too (17). Get the bubble above the pit for a melon, don't worry, 
it has a parachute (18). Follow the path past the Shy Guys and hit the 
switch, it will trigger a Heart (Heart # 1). Go down the pot. 

Run down the path and collect the melon from the bubble (19). In the 
middle of the Limbo Shy Guy, pound for a switch. Hit it and jump up the 
clouds that appear. At the top are two melons in bubbles - (20) and 
(21). Kill the Lakitu and get the melon from the Shy Fly (22). Another 
Shy Fly of course, has a melon (23). Also, pound on that platform for a 
melon (24). And the platform after the one with the lucky fruit has a 
Heart (Heart # 2). 

When you get on the path again you will be greeted with four Shy Flys, 
take them all out in one shot for a melon (25). Ok, run a little bit and 
then jump onto the clouds above the ground. Head left for a melon in a 
bubble (26) and then right for a Heart (Heart # 3), pound on the cloud 
furthest to the right  for a melon (27). A bubble with a melon is below 
the clouds as well (28). Drop down to the main path. A Shy Fly has an 
easy (29) melon, and the final one is in a bubble (30).

5-4: Shy Guy's Ship

Description:
Another Shy Guy related stage, Shy Guy Ships make many appearances. They 
will blast three Bomb-ombs at Yoshi, in some places this is bad because 
when they explode it will destroy the flooring!

Guide: 

This stage took me awhile to figure out, so here it goes...

Go forward until you reach a bunch of pipes. Avoid the Bomb-ombs the 
best you can while jumping in-between each pipe, a melon will appear 
(1). Another one is in above a pipe (2). The next three are clearly 
visible above pits (3-5). Walk forward, after the third "!" ball is a 
melon (6). Collect the Heart Fruit and climb the 3rd "!" ball, the 
longer tongue will help you get to the hidden "!" ball above it, another 
melon is up there (7). 

Go forward and jump over all the Shy Guys on Stilts, when the ground 
drops after the pepper stomp for a melon (8). Go forward to get to a 
neat area, make sure the bombs-ombs DO NOT blow away any blocks you're 
standing on. Stomp the 4th block for a melon (9) and knock the 3rd one 
out with an egg for a Heart (Heart # 1). Just make sure you don't knock 
out the blocks you're standing on. Go to the next block section. Knock 
out the 2nd block and a melon will fall to the lower section (10). 
Quickly jump out because by now Bomb-ombs are flooding the lower 
section, if they blow the flooring will collapse and you'll go "Bye 
bye!"

There is nothing to be found in the 3rd section except an Egg Block. Get 
the Heart fruit in the bubble, it can be useful in the next part. Avoid 
the Stilt Guys and pound around for two melons - (11) and (12). Go right 
and go into the next page. A Shy Fly flies above a cloud, kinda. Hit it 
with an egg so the melon lands on your cloud, make sure it doesn't go 
down the cliff (13). Go down the 2nd blue pie. Complete the easy Mini-
Game for seven melons (14-21). Follow the path down, go down the clouds. 
At the end is a dead end and a melon (22). Go back and get on a goonie, 
you'll get two melons from Shy Flys - (23) and (24) and a Heart (Heart # 
2). Get on the next land part.

Pound and hit the Shy Guys with a egg for massive points. Pound before 
jumping on a blue block for another melon (25). Jump on the 1st blue 
block to collect another melon (26). Stomp on another block for another 
melon (27). Hit one of the blocks with an egg to get a Heart (Heart # 
3). Before land starts up drop down (on a goonie...unless you wanna die) 
and collect a melon in thin air (28). Before Warp 4 is a melon in a 
bubble (29). Pound directly behind the pot for the last one (30).

Finale

Description: 
All castle based on various themes, the first three have INSANELY 
difficult mini-games which I will even explain in-depth. When you beat 
each stage you go to the showdown with Baby Bowser.

6-1: Mecha Castle

Description:
This level focuses on gears, cliffs, boingy things, traps, crushing 
walls, and more!

Guide:

Jump on the giant pendulum (it looks like an upside down hammer) and use 
the control stick to rock it back and fourth. When it gets to it's 
highest point, yank it back, eventually the wall will go up and you can 
move on! Go forward and when you see two apples, duck! Two large knives 
will come out from the ceiling/floor, pop the apple bubbles and jump on 
the staircase with the pepper. Jump on EVERY stair and a melon will 
appear (1). Next, you will find ourselves on a platform with two bubbles 
on either side, pound for a melon (2) and pop the "?" bubble (3). 

Above the lucky fruit bubble is a "!" ball, climb it to the top for a 
Heart (Heart # 1). Move on to a bubble that is floating around, hit it 
for a melon (4). Leap going until the only way up is in the form of a 
"!" ball, pop the bubble for a melon (5). To the left of the Egg Block 
are two smaller gears and one large gears, if they suck you down into 
the crevices you'll be killed, even when you're super happy!

To the left is a melon (6), wait for the Heart Fruit, collect it and 
follow the coin line up. At the top you have two ways, take a left. Hit 
the bubble and hit the switch, run as fast as you can to the right, 
collecting the melon (7), collecting the coins, avoiding the Shy Flys, 
and maneuvering the gears. When you get to a pair of "!" balls, climb 
them before time is up to reach a 'secret' place (not really secret, 
just a different path with the melons)!

Carefully load up on eggs, the Black Shy Guy can be a pain in the ass, 
so just do your best. The bubble contains Warp 3, and I suggest you get 
her, just in case. A bubble holds a melon (8), right before another 
Black Shy Guy holding a spiked mass of granite. Fall down the hole and 
hold right, if you're quick you won't get hit. Now, you have to get out 
via a similar passage, but a BSG (Black Shy Guy) is right above you. To 
do this, you must use the control stick quickly, and dodge the BSG and 
get the melon as you jump out (9). 

Grab the Heart Fruit in the bubble and pass the two BSG's, the second 
one has a melon above him (10) and another melon is not far from here, 
it's in a bubble (11). Jump up (you may need to flutter to aim 
correctly) and shoot the BSG outta the sky! He'll go away, and another 
will come to replace him, as normal. While he is retrieving his spikes 
thing, run under him, flutter under the second platform with a BSG and 
land on solid earth...all in one move. Grab the Heart (Heart # 2) and go 
down the pipe. 

I'll explain these barrels, they were in Yoshi's Island too, so you may 
not need any explaining. If you see Yoshi disappearing it means he will 
fall off the ledge, just push up and he climb back on, if he goes down 
on the screen, push up as well, but try not to go too low. O.K, below 
the 1st barrel is a melon (12) which will trigger a Heart Fruit. Collect 
every single coin you see and a melon will appear on one of the ledges 
(13). Below it is a barrel over a "seemingly bottomless" hole, but it's 
not. Fall down to find Warp 2 and a melon (14). Go up the rising log to 
find a Heart (Heart 3). Jump up to go back to the main path.

O.K, here's some more tutoring. These strange devices are on the ceiling 
and floor, when they come up or down they slam against each other, 
trying to crush little Yoshi. Just wait on the barrels, while staying on 
it, and look for patterns. When you see an opening, flutter through it! 
Just follow the path collecting the melon (15). Go up the barrels that 
are over a REAL cliff, use the "!" balls, and get on the barrel. If you 
jump and hit the spikes, you'll prolly die (you'll fly off and miss the 
barrel, then fall down the cliff) unless you can flutter. Before the 
next 'crushing walls' there is a small patch of ground, right next to 
them. Pound for a melon (16). Hop down the pot and away we go!

Follow the path up to find a melon (17), and then go up the "!" balls 
while avoiding the knives, at the top is a melon (18). The path splits, 
take the left. Use the Tulip to go up the shaft, there are two melons 
along the way - (19) and (20). Grab the melon above the "?" block (21), 
and listen up. This Mini-Game tests your ability to flutter while 
avoiding knives, gears, and other nasties. Here is the path:

-4 knives in a row, on the ground
-Two saws ending in a large path of them, flutter to avoid
-Run under the first two BSGs, but go under the third and do an about  
 face to avoid the third one, jump between him and the block...!
-This next part is the hardest of all, you have to jump over a knife, a  
 saw, stop for a break, over another knife before it gets you, and a
 saw...whew!
-A long series of gears
-A final BSG, run under him
    
    (22-28) 

This is the hardest Track Game in the entire game, and if you get hit 
just ONCE, it might cost you the race. 

You'll return to the beginning of the section, just run back to the fork 
in the road and take the right, go up to find Warp 4. Stomp near the Shy 
Guy to find a melon (29), ride up the platforms while carefully avoiding 
the knives to find the final melon (30). If you want to save time, get 
the last two melons and then go to the Mini-Game. 

Level 6-2

Description:
This level is the shortest level in the game (I think), but it's tricky 
melons more than make up for that. This level's theme is cliffs, and 
falling down them ;)

Guide:

Go to the right and eat the Shy Guy for energy, then go left. Avoid the 
blades by ducking, running, and ducking. At the end are some Shy Guys 
for your puny flower. Use the "!" balls to climb through the blades, 
look before you leap, but don't wait too long! At the top is "?" bubble, 
DO NOT POP IT YET! We'll come back to that...in a second. Go forward and 
collect the melons on the strings (1-4). Now, come back, and pop it. Hit 
the "?" Switch and run as fast as you possibly can, try not to get hit 
either. Hit the switch before climbing the "!" balls that appear. At the 
top are two melons - (5) and (6). Enter the wooden door.

Hit the strange bat creature with an egg to get a key, you need this to 
go onto the level. Exit and go right to a yellow pipe, enter it. This 
next part is tricky, but I think it's easier if you DON'T get the 
umbrella, it's all up to you. By the time you get to the bottom, you 
should have collected a bunch of melons (7-11) and a Heart (Heart # 1). 
Go down the red pipe to get back to beginning. Bomb the BSG to move on. 
Now, you can enter the locked door (you have the key, dum dum!) :)

Run under the BSG's, but you'll have to fool the 3rd. Break the bubble 
to get a melon (12). I'm not sure if you really want to get the Heart 
Fruit, it has a strange effect on the BSG's (you'll see...hehehe), but 
if you want a High Score then go for it! There is a melon in a bubble 
near the end of this section, too (13). When you enter the next phase, 
jump up and get the Heart with an egg (Heart # 2). At the middle you'll 
meet up with a 'platform guy' who will help you collect the melons, but 
do try to avoid the saws, they can easily knock you off into the cliff. 
You'll get bunches of melons as well (14-20). Enter the door...

Climb the Egg Block and look up, jump and break the (very well) hidden 
bubble to get a switch, pound it and two melons will drop from the sky - 
(21) and (22). Ignore the Mini-Game and go forward to Poochy, pound for 
a melon (23). The Special Delivery is rather hard, because the blocks 
come down ONE AT A TIME...!

Here's how to collect them all: Stand in one place, you'll get about 
four of them. Keep them steady and you should be able to collect them 
all, it takes practice and UP MOST precision. 

You shouldn't have any trouble getting past the air thing, hit the 
bubble for a Heart (Heart # 3). Collect the melons from the Mini-Game.
(24-30).

Level 6-3: Ghost Castle

Description: This place is crawling with ghosts, and in terms of 
collecting melons, this is the hardest level in the game. 

Guide:

These ghosts are triggered by making noise (i.e. running, egg throwing, 
stomping) and will attack when they hear a lot of it. But most of the 
time they will miss their target, so unless they get close just ignore 
them. The first melon lies in a bubble (1) which is right next to a "?" 
Block with five coins (2). After some obstacles you will come to a blue 
pipe, hop down it to find a large cavern. The first step has a melon in 
it (3) so sniff around. Return to the ghost castle. 

Ignore the green pipe and the strange pink block, but don't ignore the 
melon before Warp 1 and the wooden door (4). Upon entering the door you 
will have stumbled across the main area of the level, all of the other 
sections are found here. We'll go to the hardest part of the level 
first: Pop the "?" bubble and climb the "!"balls that appear, you'll 
collect a melon on the way (5). At the top is a green pipe, enter it. 
This is the last Mini-Game in the game, and it's @#$%^&*! tough, so 
listen up. When you get to the first BSG make sure your load is steady, 
go forward a little but make sure it leans backwards, run back and he 
will drop his block, quickly jump over him...that was the easy part!! 
Now you must get past another BSG, but this time you're on a play dough 
platform, which makes you go backwards. Do the same as before, but be 
very careful with your load (6-12). 

You'll fall into a large, open cavern. Sniff sniff on your way back to 
find a melon in the ground (13). You'll return to the main area, like I 
said. Go across the room to find a yellow pipe, enter it find a room 
with a key in it, grab it and go back into the pipe. Go to the regular 
door at the top, on the right side, it has a bubble in front of it 
(which contains Warp 2), enter the door. You'll find loads of melons 
(14-18) in here, four in the air and one in a block. Just be careful of 
the little boos above! When you exit you will come to the cave, which 
leads to the main area...again. Go to the top door on the left side, 
this time, the regular one. 

Go all of the way to the right to find a dead end, or is it...? Wait a 
few seconds and some ghosts will come to lend a hand, just hop on to 
gain some footing! After the Block Boos you'll come to some land, look 
up to find a "?" Block. When a whole wave of boos come in just pound 
that sucker and you should get a melon (19). At the top of the next 
shaft is a melon (20), and then you will reach a dead end. Pound for a 
switch, trigger it and climb the "!" balls, head right to find a bunch 
of blue platforms. At the end is a Heart (Heart # 1) and another switch 
to refresh it. Go all the waaaayyyy left now, to some more Boo Blocks. 
Before reaching the final doorway you will find two melons in mid-air 
and one in a wooden island in a spike sea: (21), (22), and (23). Hit the 
last bubble for a 2nd key. 

Instead of coming to that one cave you will be falling down a looong 
vertical cave full of coins! Get them, at the bottom is a pipe which 
will lead you to the start, it's a short walk back to the main area. Now 
that you have two keys you can enter both locked doors, so open the one 
on the right side of the room! Head towards the "?" Block, face away 
from the Boo Block and then look at him when he's under it, knock it a 
few times for a melon (24). After the play dough section platform there 
will be a bubble with a melon (25), then you will face a large spiked 
field. Get on the yellow block and stomp for a Heart (Heart # 2), on the 
other side of the chasm is a bubble (26), be sure to use the Boo blocks. 
When you exit you will return to the familiar cave, go back to the 
crossroads...

With your last key, enter the final door on the left, be sure to stock 
up on eggs, too. Making it past the first two BSG's is easy, but the 3rd 
requires some skill. Jump up into the air, flutter, shoot at him, and 
when he drops his block wait until he picks it up and then JUMP!...did 
you make it? Good. After a series of play dough platforms there is a 
melon hanging in the air like there should be (27). You will meet up 
with a 4th BSG, just wait for him to pick up his block and then run. 
Shoot out all of the blue blocks to find a Heart (Heart # 3) and a melon 
(28). This next section can prove difficult the 1st time, but you will 
catch on soon. Just run past them, duck, past, run, run, lick the melon 
(29) and run to the door! You'll be in that vertical cave again, but at 
the bottom, stomp to find a melon (30). 

Level 6-4: Magma Castle

Description: For avid explorers, this place is a dream come true. Lava, 
fire, and magma rivers make up this stage, and some buzzsaws and cuterly 
stand on their own near the end. This walkthrough may be short, but the 
level is actually quite large, it's just that the melons come in 
bunches. Also, there are no Mini-Games to screw around with, so you can 
cheer now! And as the more observable have noticed, this is the 
***last*** stage in the game...

Guide:

Go backwards to find a door, enter it. Wake up Warp 1 and then leave, go 
forward from the start to find a red dragon, jump on him and he'll carry 
you through the lava sea. Near the end you'll have to deal with 
fireballs, Fly Shys, and a strange blue creature. You'll also get some 
melons (1-3). Through the wooden door you'll find a large open room. 
Watch out for the lava falls, if you get hit it will cost you a lot of 
energy! You can tell when they're about to spew when you see some smoke 
comes out, so pay attention. Go across the blue platforms, on you're way 
you'll find a melon in a bubble (4). Go up the ramps, at the top is a 
yet another (5). Go right to refill your energy and eggs, then go right 
to continue. Break open the blocks for two melons - (6) and (7). 

Go up the tunnel, since you're invulnerable (from the Heart Fruit) you 
won't have to worry about being hit and/or losing eggs. At the top is a 
bubble with a melon (8), which leads to an aclove with another bubble 
that spews coins (9). Break the blue block and drop down, break that 
block before the lava gets you for a Heart (Heart # 1). Go right towards 
the lava pipe and look up, lash out your tongue to collect the melon 
(10). 

Go up the platforms to get to the top, load up on eggs and fall down the 
shaft, go enter the door. Kill BOTH slugs to get a key. Don't worry, if 
you run out of eggs just exit and use a Tulip to go to the Egg Block. 
But, they will have regained their energy back...but not to worry, if 
you can kill one and then come back it will still be dead. Once you get 
the key exit and use the Tulip on the left to go up the shaft. 

Go left and you'll spot a melon (11). When the river of lava comes, jump 
and flutter INTO the tunnel, run all the way left and you'll just make 
it before the lava comes. Go up the tunnel and you'll see an arrow of 
coins pointing up, shoot an egg up there and a melon will come down 
(12). Run right and jump up onto the upper level, go along the path to 
find a pot, jump in! You'll appear in a room, follow the path and drop 
down into a passageway, you have two ways to go: The pipe, or right. Go 
down the pipe. Go all the way right to activate Warp 3 and get a Heart 
(Heart # 2). Drop down into a large room with lots of Attack Sacks. 
There're seven Mystery Crates, you can push six of them together which 
will net you lots 'o melons (13-18). Quite an impressive array of coins, 
eh?

There is a small tunnel in the southeast corner of the room, at the 
bottom is a en exit...after dodging some Attack Sacks and collecting 
three melons (18-21). You'll see a bouncing bubble, egg it (22)! You're 
pretty close to the pot now, so just go a few feet to the left to find 
it again, go down it. Instead of going down the blue pipe, head right. 
After dodging some buzzsaws you'll see another melon in a bubble (23). 
Go past the play dough platforms and a spiked ball, past the lava pipes, 
to come to a swinging spiked ball with buzzsaws all around. Duck, when 
it goes by, and get the melon (24). With the Heart Fruit's power go all 
the way left, avoiding the pit, to find a buzzsaw and a dead-end. Go 
past the saw by ducking and a melon will appear (25)! Go back to that 
pit, fall down it.

The last challenge of the level pits you against Fire Guys with huge 
flame throwers, just follow the path with them, it might take awhile, 
but you'll get to the end O.K. with two melons - (26) and (27). At the 
end pound on the pepper for a melon (28). Wake up Warp 4 and use her to 
warp back to Warp 1, go left and pound under the coins for a melon (29). 
Go in the locked door (you got the key, ya know) and kill the bats with 
eggs, when they're all vanquished you'll get a Heart (Heart # 3).       




---------------------------------
4) The Enemies
---------------------------------

Shy Guy
These little guys go back and fourth trying to hurt you, some carry 
fruit too.

TeeHee ButterFly
They fly back and fourth. Jumping on them makes you bounce pretty far 
too! Don't eat them when they're blue, Yoshi doesn't like them (and 
you'll lose a few petals).

Pak E. Derm
You can't get by them unless you stomp on the ground. 

Spider
They are on their webs and try to knock into you, avoid the best you 
can.

BulletBill
Some even try to aim at you, these are very pesky because you are 
usually on a small platform above a bottomless pit, just pray you can 
avoid them. Eat them for eggs.

Airbag
In 1-2 you find that some of the Mystery Boxes contain giant pink 
balloon creatures. Hit the "X" on their throats twice with eggs and they 
will shrink and reveal a melon.

Blargg
These guys are in 2-2, just shoot an egg their way or wait for them to 
go back into the lava. 

Bone Dragon
Two stomps to the head or two eggs to the head will defeat them, they 
give up lots of coins, too.

Nipper Plant
Found in 2-1, they are created when a nipper spore hits the ground. They 
can be hard to spot. Just swallow.

Big Boo
If you look at them they will cover their eyes and won't attack, look 
the other way and they charge. Ok now, who on the planet earth doesn't 
know that?!

Bumpty
Remember in Yoshi's Island how those pesky penguins would bump into you 
and knock you off a cliff? Same deal, 'cept they won't do that because 
they're easy to avoid.

Shy Fly
They hover back and fourth in the air, they always carry a melon or 
fruit of somekind. The trick is to get their item and not them, because 
when they're over a cliff a wrong shot could send the fruit down the 
gulley!

Raven
An exact copy from the original, but they're somehow more dangerous this 
time. Watch your flower. 

Frog
Again, like the original. They try to slurp at you...yeah..that's it.

Chomp
After the original these are a big disappointment, you can find them in 
level 4-1. They go back and fourth, kinda easy to avoid. Too bad...

Gabon
These can also be found in level 4-1, they throw spiked balls at you. 
Careful, if you're standing on a hill and you jump over them they'll 
come rolling back down!

Eel
This electrifying creature can be found in all sorts of watery places, 
it's not one that's dangerous, it's 10 or 11 that's dangerous!

Bomb Berry
Found in level 4-2, they sprout and fall into the water. Avoid them. If 
you don't know what I'm talking about they are the fruit that look like 
prickly pears.

Piranha Plant
Knock them down with an egg. If you don't know what creature I'm talking 
about you don't deserve to be playing videogames! =0

Piranha Sprouts
A newbie, they fly around and try to lick you up. If successful you will 
become small and unable to throw eggs for several seconds. Speaking of 
eggs, they die when hit with one.

Snorkel Fish
Only one exists, it circles the room homing in on YOU. Be careful.

Shy Guy Sub
These guy's rule, unless they hit you with one of their homing 
torpedoes.

Clam
These guys are very dangerous, when they open up bubbles will push you 
into a trap that you can barely get out of. Wait until they're done and 
then swim by.

Spiny Fish
They swim back and fourth, shouldn't be a problem.

Goonies
A braintumor causing "AGAIN!!!", just like the original. Hop on and take 
a ride. Beware, some of them carry bombs.

Shy Guy's Ship
They launch Bomb-ombs at you, can be dangerous over blue blocks.

Bomb-ombs
If you don't know what they are, take a screwdriver, go to the bathroom 
and get into the 'tub, this is gonna be messy!!!

Attack Sack
Very, very sick name...sack...anyways! =) They are very large balls 
(surprise, surprise!) that attack you...big teeth!

Bat
In 6-2 one gives you the key you need, just hit it with an egg!

Blind Boos
Since they are blind they can't see you, but they can certainly hear 
you. Don't make too much noise or they'll come flying. 

Fire Guy
These Shy Guys carry huge torches and they're pointed in your direction! 
Just look for an opening and run!

Yellow...Worm!
These seldom few are in level 3-4, wait until they go by and then follow 
them.

Black Bomb Shy Guy
He will swoop in and drop bombs

Black Shy Guy (BSG)
He will wait until you're under him and then drop his big...whatever the 
heck that thing is at you.

Blurp
Without a doubt the most frustrating baddie in the game, he will pop out 
of the water and swallow you in one gulp! Tread carefully. 

Blue Blurp
Same as the other one except he shoots water at you. 

Jellyfish
The blue ones go up and down. The red ones follow you. Greenies stay in 
place. Some have items in them. 

Sea Flower
They guard fruit (namely melons) with their stinging tentacles.

Limbo Shy Guys
Have a party, how low can YOU go? 

Fireballs
In level 2-2 they will jump out and clobber you when you least expect 
it.

Lakitu
They're baaaaaaaaack!!! Some drop spikes, others drop rocks, some even 
spurt out streams of water.

Slime Boo
To get these guys in the slime, try a stomp!

Hornet's Nest
Hornets nests are always fun, especially when there are few rocks laying 
around. Eggs won't do, but try walking by them while sniffing.

Fuzzy Wiggly
Jump on each section, causing it to turn blue, and you'll get a melon!

Birdie
They fly at you in swarms

Blue Blobs
They are only in level 2-4, they are on vines. Just be careful where you 
jump.

Purple Spike Creatures
Look into level 2-3, there they are! Easy eggs, easy eggs...I need help 
mentally!!!

Sea Cactus
They are in some water levels, try to avoid your best. This is what 
clams try to blow you into.

---------------------------
5) Bosses
---------------------------

Triple Bone Dragon
You must kill one with six eggs, the other you must stomp on their 
heads. Don't miss with the egg one, you must have a successful hit with 
each egg or you must go back and reload. 

Sluggy Buggy
Throw an egg in front of them so the explosion hits them, do this three 
times.

Cloud "N" Candy
Gotta love, "N" just keep licking her...sick!

Inviso
Um...just hit him with eggs. You know it's there when you see the 
"predator invisible" move. You know, when the air gets all wiggly...?

Cloudjin
All you have to do is...egg him!

Don Bongo

All you have to do is...egg his lip!! HOW MANY TIMES DO I HAVE TO TELL 
YOU!?! =)

Baby Bowser

The end boss of the game! Not to mention one of the hardest! The higher 
the castle level (6-1, 6-2,
6-3, 6-4)the harder Bowser will be. There will be more Green Ghosts, 
Bowser's aim will be a lot better, he'll take more hits,
and a lot more Bomb-ombs fall down. At first Bowser will laugh at you, 
then he will jump on a Green Ghost and ride up high
above your head. After awhile he will start spitting fireballs at you. 
Be careful, his aim is nothing to sneeze at. Bomb-ombs will
parachute down, ready to cause trouble. Lick one up and you will be able 
to use it as an "egg"! You will notice that the ceiling
is made of spikes. When no ghosts will interfere with your shot, and 
Bowser is in the right spot, shoot the bomb-omb up at the
ceiling. When it hits the spikes one or two will fall down, damaging 
anything it touches. Aim it right so that Bowser is hit. He
will fall off the ghost and jump back on again. In 6-3 and 6-4 there are 
so many ghosts that doing that is almost impossible!
The ghosts block your shot! 

After four or five shots he'll fall down. Even though Bowser is just a 
baby, now, he's still a lot bigger than Yoshi. He will then
jump and try to butt stomp Yoshi. Bomb-ombs will continues to rain down. 
Eat one or two and shoot them at the prince (he's
not a king yet, you know). This can be hard because before he jumps he 
might shoot a fireball and then you will have to avoid the fireball AND 
Bowser. Plus all the Bomb-ombs running around. Shoot your "eggs" as soon 
as you can because if you don't they'll turn red and explode, on you! 
The bombs bounce off the wall, (like the eggs in Yoshi's Island) so bank 
shots are capable. If your having trouble eat some of the fruit off the 
Super Happy Tree. There's even a heart fruit on there! After a few hits 
he'll go down.

Note: I wrote that Bowser thing a long time ago when I was "!" 
crazy...!;)

6) Items
------------------------

Egg Blocks
Like the original, hit them to get eggs. You can carry half a dozen at 
one time.

Message Blocks
Hit them and they will either a) remind you how to a move or b) give you 
a tip about the area (i.e. "Be careful of the tooties!!!"). Yes, that 
was made a up example, you nut.

Mystery Balls 
These are found in bubbles, egg them and see what happens. Coins may 
come out, a switch, a melon, maybe even a Shy Guy. 
"?" Blocks
Hit these and either coins will come out or it will trigger a Mini-Game.

Mystery Crate
Push them against another one to get two melons, stomp on a lonely one 
(try standing on it and sniffing to see which one). In 1-2 some of them 
hold Air Bags.

Bee
Swallow this and you will get eight points and all of your petals back.	

Switch 
Hop on them and see what happens. Coins may appear, hearts, melons, who 
knows...

Pipes
Some lead to other areas, they are usually just for landscape.

Hearts
There are three of these useful items in each level. Some are right in 
front of your face while others are hidden quite well. If you don't 
collect any in Story Mode, then in the next page you will only be able 
to select ?-1. Get one and you can select ?-1 and ?-2. Get two and it's 
?-1, ?-2, and ?-3. Get all three and it's all of them...ok?

Heart Fruit
These can be found in hidden areas. One will parachute down when you eat 
six of the same fruit in a row. They are worth eight points AND they 
make you Super Happy! This is what you get: Invulnerability, longer 
tongue, a better jumping ability, un-limited eggs, larger egg 
explosions, bubbles break and Shy Guys turn into favorite fruit.

"!" Balls
Get your tongue to touch them and you will automatically hop onto them. 

Vases
Same as pipes, except they always work.

Umbrella
I usually try to avoid it because it's hard to control and replaces your 
flutter move.

Leaf
Hop on and take a ride!

Helicopter Plants
...um...hop on and take a ride!

Melons
These can be found in bubbles, rewards for mini-games, mini bosses, in 
secret ground caches, or just plain hard to spot/reach to areas. There 
are just enough in a level to finish it, look in the guide to find out 
where they are.

Bananas
Grapes
Apples
These are littered all over the stages

Lucky Fruit
Before the game begins you must choose the lucky fruit, they are worth 
extra points. If the first fruit you see is an apple and it's the lucky 
fruit and then the next game the lucky fruit are grapes then the apple 
will turn into a bunch of grapes...whew, long sentence!
