Puzzle Panic

From the Super Mario Wiki
Puzzle Panic

Puzzle Panic is a minigame in Super Mario 64 DS. It is the last one of Yoshi's minigames. It is a more difficult version of Puzzle Panel, but it is absent in New Super Mario Bros. while Puzzle Panel returns. The background music is different from Puzzle Panel, being the Lethal Lava Land and Shifting Sand Land theme.


It involves the player attempting to match the touch screen picture with the top screen picture. The screens are made of many panels that have Super Mushrooms on the front and Cape Feathers on the back. To match the two screens, the player must touch a panel with the stylus to make it turn around. However, flipping around a panel makes the surrounding panels flip around as well, adding a challenge. Also, as the player completes levels, the puzzles take more flips ('turns') to complete. If the panels are flipped correctly, similar to Puzzle Panel, the two Yoshi statues on the left and right blasts off and the player advances to the next level.
