Overview[edit]

Front side[edit]

To start, there is a Shy Guy walking over a bridge, then a Piranha Plant with a few coins. There is then a stump and two koala cans with a magnet attached to the higher can. Yoshi must detach the magnet, then attach it to the lower can to get up. He must then walk into the foreground. To the left is a Shy Guy, then a bridge with a Rhinono on the other side. There is a hidden Winged Cloud over the Rhinono Yoshi can hit to reveal coins and a Smiley Flower over the bridge. The Rhinono will then follow Yoshi to the right, where it must pop the balloons in Yoshi's path. Ahead of this, there are a few Shy Guys as well as a few coins, including one Red Coin. There is then a platform with a rope above it. Below this platform is a hidden Winged Cloud. If Yoshi hits it, several coins pop out, including a few red coins.

Yoshi must then climb up the rope to get to a Shy Guy and a Winged Cloud containing five hearts. There are then some Shy Guys bouncing on balloons. There is a Winged Timer Cloud nearby Yoshi can hit to reveal Blue Coins over a long line of balloons. If he collects all of them before time runs out, a Smiley Flower appears. After the balloons is the pipe dispensing Shy Guys, with a rope Yoshi must climb down to get to a Shy Guy and two alligator heads which chomp down one at a time. Just after this is a Checkpoint Bell.

After the checkpoint, Yoshi must take a bridge into the background. To the left is a hidden Winged Cloud Yoshi can hit to make some coins appear. To the right is a giraffe cart Yoshi must push ahead. He is soon blocked by a small bridge of paper towel rolls, with an arrow made of coins indicating a Ground Pound. Here, Yoshi can climb up the giraffe cart and hop to the left to find a Piranha Plant and a small group of coins, with a red coin in the center. Yoshi must now Ground Pound the paper towels, then push the giraffe cart ahead, defeating some enemies along the way. At the end, Yoshi must hop onto the giraffe cart, then onto a large structure of a giraffe. To the right is a Winged Cloud above a sitting Shy Guy. This Winged Cloud contains five more hearts.

Yoshi must then follow the giraffe's neck into the background, where there is a Rhinono waiting for him. Once again, to the left is a hidden Winged Cloud Yoshi can hit to make coins appear. To the right are blocks the Rhinono can break to reveal an Egg-Plant. There is also a present box nearby, on a stump close in the background. This present box contains many coins, including one red coin. Up ahead is a Winged Cloud Yoshi can hit to reveal some coins as well as two red coins. There are also ropes Yoshi can climb to find more coins. After this, there are some balloons the Rhinono falls through to end up in a hidden compartment, where there are coins and a Smiley Flower. After a while, there is another rope. To the right is a hidden Winged Cloud containing many red coins. At the top of the rope is a Checkpoint Bell.

After this checkpoint, there are a few more balloons Yoshi must use to hop over a Piranha Plant. Next is a section with three koala cans, three balloons, two Piranha Plants, a magnet, and a pipe dispensing Shy Guys. Once again, Yoshi must attach the magnet to a koala can to get up. To the left, on a separate koala can, is a Smiley Flower. To the right is another Winged Timer Cloud. If Yoshi hits it, it reveals dozens of Fooly Flowers behind, circling in circles. There is a Smiley Flower hidden among them. After this, Yoshi must Ground Pound a stack of blocks.

Here, there is a large balloon blocking Yoshi's path. In the background, there is a Rhinono and a Baby Rhinono separated by a broken bridge. Yoshi must find the three bridge parts in this area to repair the bridge and reunite the Rhinonos. Yoshi should start by crossing into the foreground, where the first bridge part can be seen hidden behind some bushes. After this is a rope Yoshi must climb up to find another bridge part. To the left is an Egg-Plant. Below is a group of Piranha Plants with the third and final bridge part. Once Yoshi has collected all three bridge parts, he must head back to the broken bridge and toss the parts at it to repair the bridge, reuniting the Rhinonos. To show their thanks, the Rhinonos pop the large balloon blocking Yoshi's path. Yoshi should now head into the background where the repaired bridge is to find a hidden Winged Cloud he can hit to reveal coins and the last Smiley Flower.

Next is a Winged Cloud containing five hearts, as well as a set of five alligator heads which chomp down at intervals. Finally, there is a bridge which takes Yoshi directly to the goal.

Flip side[edit]

The Baby Rhinono and its parent can still be seen, safe in the background together.

  • The cyan Poochy Pup is in the section after the Fooly Flowers, between the Piranha Plants where the magnet usually is.
  • The black Poochy Pup is riding the first Rhinono that appears.
  • At the location of the paper towel bridge, in the background, the pink Poochy Pup is seen hopping between two alligator heads.

Collectibles[edit]

Smiley Flowers[edit]

  • Smiley Flower 1: To the left of the first Rhinono, there is a hidden Winged Cloud Yoshi must hit to reveal the Smiley Flower as well as some coins.
  • Smiley Flower 2: Yoshi must hit the first Winged Timer Cloud, then collect all the blue coins that appear before time runs out to reveal the second Smiley Flower.
  • Smiley Flower 3: In the hidden compartment, where the Rhinono falls after popping the balloons.
  • Smiley Flower 4: Before the second Winged Timer Cloud, to the left atop a separate koala can.
  • Smiley Flower 5: Yoshi must hit the second Winged Timer Cloud, then find and hit the Smiley Flower hidden among the Fooly Flowers.
  • Smiley Flower 6: Once the bridge is repaired, Yoshi must head into the background and left to find a hidden Winged Cloud. Hitting it reveals coins and the last 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. In the flip side, three are awarded for bringing all three Poochy Pups to the goal, and one more for doing so within three minutes.
