Puzzle Panic is the last of Yoshi's minigames in Super Mario 64 DS. It is a more difficult version of Puzzle Panel.

The background music is different from Puzzle Panel's, being the Lethal Lava Land and Shifting Sand Land theme.


The gameplay is almost entirely the same as that of Puzzle Panel: The player must match the Touch Screen picture with the top screen picture, and both pictures are made of panels with Mushrooms on the front and Cape Feathers on the back. However, Puzzle Panic starts with a larger grid of panels than the previous minigame. Touching a panel with the stylus causes it to flip over, along with the surrounding panels. If the panels are flipped correctly, the two Yoshi statues on the left and right blast off, and the player advances to the next level. Later levels take more flips ("turns") to complete.

In-game instructions[edit]

This mini-game takes the Puzzle Panel to a whole new level. Put on your thinking cap. You're going to need it.
