Poochy's Magma Run is the second level of Sky-High Heights in Yoshi's Crafted World. It is a lava-themed level that features Poochy.


Front side[edit]

The level begins with a lava geyser with a Winged Cloud in it. Hitting it makes six Coins appear. After some Shy Guys and a Tap-Tap, another spot with two lava geysers appears, with one having a Winged Cloud that spawns more coins. Directly after that is an Egg Block above a platform that sinks when Yoshi steps on it. Soon, a larger pit of lava is found that Yoshi must traverse, with a Gargantua Blargg. After that, Yoshi must move across more platforms that sink when stepped on. After that is the first Check Point.

Right after the first Check Point, Poochy appears. Yoshi must get on him to reach a high ledge. Yoshi can then ride Poochy through a trail of coins and Tap-Taps, along with a Fat Guy. Next, there is a high ledge that is a sinking platform. Yoshi can stand on it for some time to reach a Smiley Flower. After that is a set of breakable blocks, with Fat Guys on it. Yoshi can ground pound one to ride Poochy through the rest, then riding him through lava to get some coins. Next, Poochy can go across some lava geysers to reach a pool of lava. Yoshi must ride Poochy under an alcove, then get up to a high ledge without him, reaching the second Check Point.

Soon, Poochy swims through lava in the background after being left by Yoshi. Yoshi must get past some lava geysers and Tap-Taps, with an Egg Block in the middle. After this, Yoshi reaches a large pool of lava with a Gargantua Blargg. Yoshi must traverse the lava across platforms based on Skeleton Goonies, with lava geysers in the way. Poochy stops behind a rock, and continues swimming in the background when Yoshi passes it. When Yoshi reaches the end of the lava pool, Poochy returns. Yoshi must then ride him through a large pool of lava with lava geysers and Skeleton Goonie platforms, along with the option to hit a blue Time Cloud that makes a trail of Blue Coins appear along the way. After this, another lava pool appears, with lava geysers that Poochy hops across. Right after this is the goal.

Flip side[edit]

Poochy no longer appears in the level. The background on the flip side is revealed to be purple, as opposed to orange on the front. Extra Skeleton Goonie-shaped platforms are added, so Yoshi can get across the first lava pit without Poochy. The light-blue Poochy Pup sits on a platform directly below another, between two lava geysers. The black Poochy Pup swims beneath the bridge of breakable blocks. It can be acquired by bouncing an egg off a wall at it. A small spring is added after a high ledge, in case the player wants to go back. The pink Poochy Pup is found at the second Egg Block. It can be revealed by standing on the sinking platform long enough.


Smiley Flowers[edit]

  • Smiley Flower 1: At the first spot with a Gargantua Blargg, Yoshi must hit a Winged Cloud to make it appear with several Coins.
  • Smiley Flower 2: Shortly after the first flower, Yoshi must find a hidden Winged Cloud between some coins. Hitting it makes the flower appear with some more coins.
  • Smiley Flower 3: After the trail of coins and Tap-Taps, Yoshi must stand on a sinking platform for some time, then ride Poochy through lava to reach the flower.
  • Smiley Flower 4: At the second lava pool with a Gargantua Blargg, a blue Time Cloud is found. Yoshi must eat five apples that appear to get the flower.
  • Smiley Flower 5: When Poochy reappears, Yoshi can hit another blue Time Cloud to make a trail of Blue Coins appear along the pool of lava. Yoshi must collect them all to get the 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.

  • Blargg Rock: Behind the sinking platform near the third Smiley Flower.

Found on the flip side:

  • Tyrannosaurus 1: Found right near the light-blue Poochy Pup's location, propped against a volcano.
  • Tyrannosaurus 2: At the first pool of lava with a Gargantua Blargg, peeking from behind a volcano in the background.
  • Tyrannosaurus 3: After the first Check Point, behind some rocks.
  • Tyrannosaurus 4: After the set of Tap-Taps and a Fat Guy, in the background behind a volcano.

  • Pteranodon 1: Found after Poochy is first found, at the start of the trail of coins.
  • Pteranodon 2: Peeking from behind a rock at the spot with the third Smiley Flower.
  • Pteranodon 3: At the second lava pool with a Gargantua Blargg, right after the blue Time Cloud.
