Under Siege is the second level of Hidden Hills and the forty-seventh level overall of Yoshi's Crafted World. This is one of the only levels in the game, besides boss levels, with no flip side to explore. This level uses mechanics from Skulking Around.


To start, Yoshi must get onto a long, magnetic platform lifted by a magnet. As Yoshi is brought higher up the outside of a skyscraper, more searchlights appear. If Yoshi is caught in the beam of a searchlight, it turns red, and a Li'l Marcher pops out of a hole in the skyscraper. As soon as Yoshi gets onto the long, magnetic platform, he can run to the right edge to find a Smiley Flower. Just after this, near the left edge, there is a Winged Cloud Yoshi can hit to reveal a second Smiley Flower. Next, to the right, is a trail of four Red Coins, then a trail of three regular coins and a 10-Coin on the left.

Once Yoshi reaches the Winged Cloud containing five hearts, the long magnet shakes before the magnet detaches it, dropping it out of sight. Here, Yoshi must board one of the two smaller magnetic platforms. Just above the middle magnet is a hidden Winged Cloud containing another Smiley Flower. To the right, there is a window with a hole in it, where a present box can be seen. This present contains several coins, including one red coin. In the middle is a Time Cloud between two moving spotlights. Hitting it reveals five apples nearby. If Yoshi can eat all of them in the allotted time, he is rewarded with a Smiley Flower. Yoshi must then board one magnetic platform as the other two drop.

There is a Winged Cloud flying from the background to the foreground. If Yoshi hits it with an egg, it reveals another Smiley Flower which continues to rotate. Once Yoshi makes it past two moving spotlights, the platform he is riding is once again dropped, and he must ride the magnet until he reaches the top of the level. When he does reach the top of the skyscraper, Gusties start to appear. Yoshi can follow them to the left to find one last Smiley Flower, then head right to get to the goal.


Smiley Flowers[edit]

  • Smiley Flower 1: As soon as Yoshi boards the first magnet, he must run to the right end to reach the flower.
  • Smiley Flower 2: Just after the first flower, Yoshi must run to the left end to spot a Winged Cloud he must hit to reveal the second Smiley Flower.
  • Smiley Flower 3: Once the magnet holding the long magnetic platform locks in place, Yoshi should jump on it to discover a hidden Winged Cloud containing the third Smiley Flower.
  • Smiley Flower 4: There is a Time Cloud along the way Yoshi must hit to reveal five apples. Eating all of them in the given time makes the flower appear.
  • Smiley Flower 5: There is a circling Winged Cloud along the way Yoshi must hit to reveal yet another Smiley Flower.
  • Smiley Flower 6: Once Yoshi reaches the top of the level, he must follow the Gusties to the left to find the last Smiley Flower.

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.


  • Shrunk Plastic Yoshi 1: Near the start of the level, above the second Smiley Flower, through an open window.
  • Shrunk Plastic Yoshi 2: Shortly after the first craft, just before Yoshi boards one of two magnets, plastered on the right side of the skyscraper.
  • Shrunk Plastic Yoshi 3: Plastered in the middle of the skyscraper, just above the Time Cloud.
  • Shrunk Plastic Yoshi 4: Shortly after Yoshi boards the last magnet, the craft is seen hanging through a broken window on the right.
  • Shrunk Plastic Yoshi 5: To the left at the top of the level, between the final Smiley Flower and the goal arrow.


Once Yoshi gets off the long magnet, he should hop onto the left magnet. Sprout can soon be spotted in a hole in a window, symmetrical to the present box.
