Special World

Go to star world 5 with a cape and make a brick platform and fly until you see a rock cage and get into it go to the end put the key into the hole and tadaaaaaaaa you got the special world it really hard so bring 2 capes.



Feed Yoshi ten apples and he'll hatch a power-up (depending on what color he is). A green Yoshi hatches a mushroom, blue hatches a cape feather, red hatches a fire flower thing, and yellow hatches an invinsible star.

Sneak In Bowser's Back Door

Is the front door too hard for you? Well there's a secret exit to lead to his back door. On the 2nd level of the Valley of Bowser when you reach the half point of the level and go into the pipe, keep going and avoid the wings. Once the first moving floor moves up, jump up and move to the left across the screen. (you will be over the screen!) Eventully you'll make it to the key and keyhole. Then destory the Valley Fortress to get to the back door. There turn on the light to get past ninja kitties and lava to get to Bowser.

Donut Secret 1

In Donut Plains 1, if you already have the green power switch you should be able to find the Donut secret 1. Toward the very end of the Donut Plains 1, there is a tall green pipe. Jump over it. On the other side, there is a little red thing that will enable you to walk up the stack of green squares. At the end of the green squares, there are a bunch of pipes. Between those pipes, there are the key and keyhole that lead you to Donut Secret 1. Donut Secret 1 takes place in the water, so watch out for new water villains!!

Quick Lives In The

This is a very simple and early way to get lives: once you pass "Yoshi's Island 1 you can go up to the "Yellow Switch Palace". Once you're there enter the level. Hop on the "P" switch and collect all the coins you can. Then press start and select "save & quit" then load the same file and you can repeat this. I've gotten about 120 lives using this.

2 Ways To Get Easy Lives

1: go to donut plains 1 and go past the checkpoint thing and jump over the hole and go through the green tube on the ground then get the feather then run up the tubes and once you get to the top quickly press a and still holding b and just stay and collect coins. (every 100 coins you get one life). 2:go to donut ghost house with the cape and run towards the edge but turn around before you fall off and run back just after the box jump up but just so the cape trails behind you and get to the ledge. Run to the other end of the ledge and fall off go through the door and finish the level. Then you unlock the special level thingy go to the level then once your on yoshi go to either side and go back to the level select screen and go back to the same level and junp into the same one you dot yoshi from and an egg will appear and break open and a green mushroom will be there. (only works if you have yoshi).

Easy Way To Beat Donut Plains 2

When you get to donut plains 2 you go until the second green pipe on the top and jump into it (you can do the other thing that was posted)then you have this football throwing guy jump over him and keep going then there will be this case jump over that and go into the pipe then when you come out you'll be at the end. TADA!

Key 1- Ups

When you find a key in one of the game levels, use it to unlock the secret goal first. Then, go back and play the level again, but this time, carry the key through the main goal. The key will turn into a 1-up mushroom! Use this trick as many times as you like to get extra lives.

Up To 20 Free Lives

On star level 2, where you get the little yellow yoshi there is sort of a glitch. Whatever it is, it can give you up to 20 lives. First make yoshi big by feeding him the annoying red turtle thing the lakuta throws. Go to the end of the level where the finish gate is and cross it , but if you want the lives you need the red turtles following you and also the lakuta make sure they are all in the screen. Then just cross the gate as you normally do. Note: for up to 20 lives you need to do it right you might get 3 or 5 lives first, to know if you did it right there should be a banner that reads, "15 up".

Yellow Switch Palace

If you want to get to the Yellow Switch Palace, you'll have to complete Yoshi island #1. When you get there, there's a button that says "P". Press that and coins will float around. Try and collect a lot then go into the pipe. Just keep walking and jump on the yellow button with a ! mark on it. You will unlock the yellow boxes with a ! mark. Each one has a toad inside!

Many Points From The Bosses

If you need points, follow this tip. First you have to defeat any Koopa Boss (except Bowser), then press the up button, and instead of your time bonus by X50 it will be X200!

Easy Lives

Unlock the level Forest Of Illusions 4, go back to it and jump and get the extra life, push start, then click back.


If you get a power-up and you get another one, it'll stay in a frame on top of the screen. Once you get hit and turn into a kid, the power-up above will start to drop and you'll have another chance. Note: When it drops, get it or it'll go away. Make sure you don't get a lower power-up after you had a higher one, like have a cape feather as a back-up and exchange it for a mushroom.

Vanilla Dome Secret 1, 2, and 3
