Gilbert the Gooey's Castle is level 1-8 of Yoshi's Island DS. It is also the first scary castle of the game. It is the first appearance of Gooey Goons.


The level begins near some lava, so the player will have to use the bridges nearby to navigate the level. After avoiding some Ball 'n' Chains, Gooey Goons and some lava patches, the player will have to go down a nearby pipe to advance. Inside the new area, the dinosaur will have to avoid some Gooey Goons and lava to reach the Middle Ring. Nearby is a Stork Stop, an Egg Block, and a wind gust. Following that is two doors, one of which is locked, and the other one which contains a treasure area containing a Character Coin. Yoshi, paired with Baby Peach, will have to ride the wind gust to obtain the key to the locked door. Yoshi will have to avoid a few enemies, including a Super Big Blargg, while backtracking to the door. A pipe leding to another secret area can also be accesed there. When near the door, the player should open it, revealing a Haunted House-themed area infested with Gooey Goons.

BOSS: Gilbert the Gooey

After Yoshi, arrives in the room, Kamek uses his magic to turn the standard Yellow Gooey Goon into a massive monster with 20 colorful balls of goo. Gilbert the Gooey is an extremely easy boss. You will need to avoid his attacks which involve him rising up and down and swaying left and right. Swallow the goo-balls on his face and either spit them at him or make eggs with them. After all 20 have been swallowed, Gilbert is defeated.
