Level Layout

Area 1

Yoshi starts the level near a staircase which the player must go up; then he can continue going right after getting to the top to find more stairs to go down. After that, Yoshi must then jump over a spike pit, collecting Red Coins along the way. Yoshi will find a room inhabited by four Piranha Plants and a flower. A chain is nearby which must then be traversed using Baby Donkey Kong , he will then find a Middle Ring and then access Area 2.

Area 2

After entering Area 2, Yoshi will have to use rubber balls to bounce to a higher area, then jump over a gap and use the Arrow Lift to get past a slew of enemies. Once he gets past them, he can grab a key from the vase. Afterwards, Yoshi goes down a huge drop, and uses the Arrow Lift to continue again until he nears a door. The door will lead back to the area he began in, and Yoshi must use the Stork Stop to continue, switching to Baby Mario. Yoshi must then jump into a narrow path, encountering a Middle Ring, a bunch of enemies, and spikes. At the end, Yoshi must break another vase to get another key. Yoshi must then jump across a long abyss to get to a locked door. The player must then enter the door to access area 3.
