Ride the Stars
Ride the Stars is the second level of Outer Orbit and the thirty-seventh level overall of Yoshi's Crafted World. Another outer-space level, Yoshi must ride comets, hop along planets, and ride rockets all the way to the goal.
The level starts out with a space-themed Shy Guy, then another Shy Guy along two swinging UFOs. Yoshi then enters a large plastic bottle, which he then quickly drops out of. There is then a trail of comets or shooting stars Yoshi can ride on or follow. Nearby, there is a small, purplish star in the background. Yoshi can hit it to reveal a Smiley Flower, which he can then hit to collect. Around this point, space-themed Fly Guys start to appear. After a small space shuttle, there are three comet trails. The bottom trail lets Yoshi pick up three Red Coins. The middle trail lets Yoshi pick up six regular coins. The top trail leads to three Fly Guys, then a Smiley Flower. Shortly after this is a Winged Cloud containing five hearts.
Just after this Winged Cloud, there is a Fly Guy moving between two swaying planets: a smaller, orange planet and a medium-sized, brownish planet with a ring. There is a Winged Cloud above the bigger, brown planet Yoshi can hit to reveal a UFO to the left, which drops down suddenly. Hopping onto this UFO drops down another UFO, which Yoshi can then hop on to drop down a smiling crescent moon with the third Smiley Flower. There are three red coins between these two UFOs. After all this, there is an Egg Block, then a mobile with four objects. Three are modeled after planets, while one is a small rocket with a red coin inside and a space-themed Bazooka Heyho on top. Just after the mobile is the first Checkpoint Bell.
After the first checkpoint, there is a long section with trails of comets and shooting stars. Along the way, there are three red coins and a Winged Timer Cloud. Yoshi can hit the Winged Timer Cloud to flip the screen, revealing three spinning yellow UFOs, with three flowers below each. Most of these flowers are Fooly Flowers, although one hidden among them is a Smiley Flower. Yoshi must locate and hit it in the given time to collect it. After this comet section, there is a second mobile, with a Smiley Flower in the rocket and a Bazooka Heyho on the other side. Above the Bazooka Heyho is a Winged Cloud containing five hearts. Just after this mobile is another mobile. To the right is a juice bottle rocket with an Egg Block. In the background, Yoshi can spot two Fly Guys, one of them holding a red coin. By defeating them both, a star drops down and some coins appear. The second Checkpoint Bell is also seen in the background.
After passing the second checkpoint, there is one last long comet section. Near the start, there are four red coins and a Winged Cloud Yoshi can hit to reveal several coins surrounding a Smiley Flower just below. Ahead of this is a small space shuttle platform with an Egg Block and a Winged Cloud containing five hearts. In the background, a juice bottle rocket can be spotted with a present box. This present box contains multiple coins as well as one red coin.
Near the end of this section, where the goal arrow is, a separate trail can be spotted, guiding comets and shooting stars up to the left, rather than ahead to the right. If Yoshi rides the comets up the separate trail, it takes him to a separate planet with the seventh and final Smiley Flower. Near the very end of the section, below the trails, there is a paper plate UFO with three red coins. At last, after riding one last comet trail, Yoshi reaches a prepared rocket. Once Yoshi boards this rocket, the Cybos holding it in place release hold, launching it past a few waves of coins to the end of the level, where Yoshi simply needs to walk to the goal.
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 and thirty seconds.
