Poochy's Tape Trail is the fourth level of Yoshi's Crafted World, and the first level of Go-Go Land. Five Smiley Flowers are required to play this level.


Front side[edit]

The level begins with two rolls of tape which Yoshi must unroll, along with a few Shy Guys and Fly Guys. Afterwards, the first Makimaki appears, followed by a few more in the next area. This eventually leads to some Shy Guys in a hedge, along with the first Check Point. Yoshi must then climb a spiral tape trail with more Makimaki, then navigate another tape trail with more Fly Guys. The path then splits not long after, and Yoshi must navigate overlapping tape trails to proceed to the area where Poochy presides. After traveling with Poochy for a while, the second Check Point follows, along with another tape trail. The path then splits again multiple times, and Yoshi must travel across multiple tape trails in the foreground and background to allow Poochy to proceed. Afterwards, Yoshi and Poochy must travel on one final roll of tape to the goal.

Flip side[edit]

After the clear screen, the course flips around, revealing the Poochy Pups, which then run out into the level. Yoshi is given the choice to find them, or go back to the world map. The Light-Blue Poochy Pup is found on a teal-shelled snail made of tape. The Black Poochy Pup hops from two boxes on an island in the background, near the second Message Block. The Pink Poochy Pup sits behind a bush next to a stationary Shy Guy, near the frog prince.


Smiley Flowers[edit]

  • Smiley Flower 1: Just above and to the left of the third Makimaki. To collect it, Yoshi must stun said Makimaki after it has completely unraveled its roll of tape, then jump over to the left to reach the platform the Smiley Flower is situated on.
  • Smiley Flower 2: Just before the first path split, Yoshi must hit a Time Cloud, then hit all Shy Guys in the background with Blue Coins before time runs out to claim the Smiley Flower.
  • Smiley Flower 3: At the first path split, Yoshi must take the furthest path from the camera, then travel on the tape roll that tunnels through the frog prince structure to obtain the Smiley Flower.
  • Smiley Flower 4: After the third set of Makimaki encountered by Poochy, there is a patch of pink dirt that Poochy must tunnel through while facing left, allowing him to reach the Smiley Flower and give it to Yoshi.
  • Smiley Flower 5: Just before the sixth set of Makimaki encountered by Poochy (and just before the second Check Point), Yoshi must jump off Poochy just at his maximum jump height from jumping over a ledge to collect the Smiley Flower.
  • Smiley Flower 6: Just after the second Check Point, Yoshi must hit a high-up Time Cloud, then collect all Blue Coins that appear before time runs out to collect the Smiley Flower.
  • Smiley Flower 7: At the final fork of tape trails just before the goal, Yoshi must go all the way left on the path closest to the camera, throw an egg at the roll of tape over to the left, then travel further left to obtain the 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.
