Red Coins 6 and 7: To the right of the ‘?’ cloud are 3 stone platforms. The 2 outer platforms will fall after Yoshi steps on them. Use eggs or Koopa Troopa shells to reach the coins below for 2 red coins.

Flower 2: Jump across to the breakable block and make the stone block to the left fall. Do NOT jump on to the stone block next on the right because it will block access to the flower.

Red Coin 11 – 13: When you get to second Metal Shy Guy, turn him into a Metal Eggdozer and follow the path of carnage from the safety of the platforms above and through the flippers to gather 3 more red coins.

Red Coin 14: Head right and under the stone platforms for some gold coins and one red coin.

Star 26 – 30: At the end of its run, the Metal Eggdozer will drop down and burst a ‘?’ cloud, releasing 5 stars.

Red Coin 14: Collect the coins to the right for a red coin.

Flower 4: This is above the bouncy ball to the right.

Red Coin 15 – 20: Go through the warp pipe and run as fast as Yoshi’s stubby green legs can carry him to pick up all of the coins before they get buried under fallen boulders.

Flower 5: As above, run the gauntlet to the end, grab the flower and then hop back on to the safety of the warp pipe to prevent Yoshi getting squished.
