Dino Smash is the first level of Dino Desert in Yoshi's Crafted World. It is a desert level with its main gimmick being that Yoshi wears a triceratops skull on his head to break blocks and defeat enemies.
The level begins with an arrow sign pointing to a triceratops skull that Yoshi can wear. A wall of breakable dirt blocks is found next, with Shy Guys around it and Coins inside and above it. Next is a tall Shy Guy Tower carrying the first Smiley Flower. After more Shy Guys, Yoshi finds five Item Balloons each carrying a Heart. Next, Yoshi must ground pound multiple dirt blocks, having to lose his triceratops skull in the process, to reach the first Checkpoint Bell.
Yoshi is blocked off by some dirt blocks, which are smashed by a Skall Heyho on the other side. After an Egg Block, a red Time Cloud appears. Yoshi must hit three Shy Guys, each carrying Blue Coins to earn a Smiley Flower. After a Winged Cloud with hearts, a blue Time Cloud above five bone platforms appears, making apples appear around the platforms. After a bridge of dirt blocks above ground, Yoshi reaches a pillar of dirt blocks with another triceratops skull on top. Once a Skall Heyho smashes the blocks, Yoshi can wear the skull. Yoshi can is then required to break through more dirt blocks to reach the second Checkpoint Bell.
Next, Yoshi reaches a large set of dirt blocks, in the formation of a castle. Shy Guys are found inside and around it. Afterward, Yoshi must break through four small stacks of dirt blocks each with a Bon-Bom on it. Next, Yoshi must ground pound down through more dirt blocks and break through another wall of them. Five Item Balloons with hearts are found before a large mud pond that Yoshi must cross. Yoshi must traverse small pieces of ground, some with dirt blocks, along with Shy Guys and Bon-Boms in the way. After crossing the pond, Yoshi finds a large set of dirt blocks with many Shy Guys. A spring is found at the end, propelling Yoshi to the path to the goal.
The fence on the flip side is shown to be brown as opposed to light blue on the front side. Both areas where Yoshi had to ground pound down some dirt blocks now has a spring and the dirt blocks removed. The light-blue Poochy Pup is found in the dirt block castle area, at a wall. The black Poochy Pup is found right after the first Checkpoint Bell, shortly after the light-blue Poochy Pup. It pokes out from two holes in the background. The pink Poochy Pup is found at the top of the tall Shy Guy Tower, in place of the first Smiley Flower.
Three more Smiley Flowers are awarded for collecting at least 100 coins in the level, completing the level with 20 hearts, and collecting all 20 Red Coins.
