Layout[edit]

Using the Blimp Fruit at the base of the tree.

The player starts at the base of a large tree. Moving around to the bottom of the planet, the player can find a Yoshi Egg and break it open to release Yoshi. Having Yoshi eat one of the Blimp Fruits around the tree will cause him to inflate and begin floating upwards. Using a chain of Blimp Fruit as the player floats up, the player can climb to the top of the tree and use a Launch Star to reach the next planet.

The next, log-shaped planet is a two-dimensional platforming segment full of horizontally moving platforms. On the side of the log the platforms are moving from, the player can use two Blimp Fruits to move through a path with a ? Coin and get over a ledge to the next half of the segment. Here, the player has to make use of Blimp Fruits and collect five Star Chips while avoiding thorny flowers to form a Launch Star leading to the final planet.

The Trunk Wheel Planet is another two-dimensional platforming segment and the player starts above the Power Star they need to reach. Falling down a deep hole, the player will then need to use Blimp Fruit to float back up, avoiding Thorny Flowers and Paragoombas to reach the Power Star above.
