Seesaw Scramble (written See-Saw Scramble in the British English version) is the third level of World 2 in Yoshi's New Island. The level features many seesaws which the player must use to cross pits as well as posts that, when ground pounded, cause an adjacent post to rise. In a later part of the level, the player enters a volcanic range where they must avoid Fire Wanwan Dosun that are launched from the background.
At the start of the level, there is a seesaw above a pit, followed by a platform with two blue posts and an Egg Plant, with a group of coins above the Egg Plant containing the level's first Red Coin. Further ahead, there is series of seesaws and Item Balloons that drop missiles, Needlenoses and coins. There are also platforms with Koopa Troopas whose shells can be thrown under tight spaces to collect items, including Smiley Flowers. A series of green posts lead Light-Blue Yoshi to a Winged Cloud that spawns stars. After an Egg Block the first seesaw when on the bottom left part spawns a row of coins, while there is a Winged Cloud above a second seesaw that spawns a Smiley Flower. Afterwards, there is an area where Light-Blue Yoshi has to adjust a pair of red posts so he can overcome a high ledge, though below a platform in between the red posts is a hidden Winged Cloud that spawns stars and to the top of the leftmost post at its highest contains a hidden Winged Cloud that spawns coins and Red Coins when activated. At the top after using the red posts is a Whirly Gate that leads Light-Blue Yoshi into a Jackhammer Yoshi course. Here, the Yoshi must drill through a series of stone blocks as he descends an underground tunnel, after which it is transported out onto a grassy field right before a Checkpoint Ring.
In this section of the level, Light-Blue Yoshi must avoid Fire Wanwan Dosun that rain down into pits and break through breakable blocks. Before going up several platforms is a hidden area behind a wall that contains coins and red coins. Up the several platforms has a field with Shy Guys and an Egg Plant. Below the Egg Plant reveals a platform where a hidden Winged Cloud gives stars and a Warp Pipe that leads to a bonus room where coins and a Spring Ball are located. where Light-Blue Yoshi must use two successive solid seesaws over a pit to reach a ledge where the Goal Ring is located.
Smiley Flower 1: Immediately after a series of three wooden seesaws, there is an area with two green posts and a Koopa Troopa. The post on the left blocks a narrow opening to the level's first Smiley Flower. The Yoshi must first Ground Pound the post into the ground, then launch a Koopa Troopa shell through the opening to collect the Smiley Flower.
Smiley Flower 2: Shortly after the first Smiley Flower, Light-Blue Yoshi will encounter two solid seesaws over a pit. Above the second seesaw is a Winged Cloud which produces the second Smiley Flower when activated.
Smiley Flower 4: Just after the third clock in the Whirly Gate section, Jackhammer Yoshi encounters several stone blocks that it must break through in order to collect it
Smiley Flower 5: After a field with two Shy Guys and an Egg Plant in the Fire Wanwan Dosun area, there are two solid seesaws that lead to the Goal Ring. If Light-Blue Yoshi tips the second seesaw to the right, two rows of coins spawn ahead. Tossing an egg in the direction of these coins will reveal a hidden Winged Cloud which, when hit, produces the fifth Smiley Flower.
