Yoshi’s Island

How do you get past the Bigger Boo’s fort level? I always get stuck on it.

Games Guru: I assume you are having trouble with the magically transformed BIGGER BOO. (If this is not correct, please let me know what part of this level is giving you problems.) Here’s the deal with the BIG BOO: Use ricochet shots. Look away from him so he floats toward you, then fire shots into the walls so they bounce off and hit him as he approaches. Five shots should just about put him down for good.

  1. psst there’s a brand new yoshi’s island game coming to the nintendo 3DS!

    • I have the GBA version and man, it’s tough to collect all stars, flowers, and red coins!

    • I Love the final battle of Baby Bowser! He talks funny: “What kind of gween donkey is
      dat? Wooks wik fun! Me wanna riiiiiide! Mine! Mine! I love it when he gets huge; he
      reminds me of what you get when you cross a T-Rex from Jurassic Park with Barney,
      the pink dinosaur

  2. How could I ever get this game for DS? I have never played it before and would like to;
    this game sounds cool.

    • Not only do I want the DS version, but the GBA as well; both games sound AWESOME! :-)

      • i have it for N64 & its gr8

      • I’ll bet that you can get the GBA and DS versions for cheap on Amazon.com!(used though!) :-)

      • Actually, I think Ebay is selling them for cheaper.

      • I could try to get those GBA and DS versions of Yoshi’s island with some 25-26 dollars.
        (I thought I saw the DS version selling for as little as $16.99 and the GBA version selling for as little as $8.99 on Ebay possibly!)

    • Hey guys, this game is cool. I like it because I looked up the GBA and DS versions up
      on Wikipedia and this game is cool. I also have a Mario songbook with Yoshi’s island Main theme and Yoshi’s island athletic theme in it; I play those songs and I sure like them! :->
      P.S. Please tell me about the athletic theme and Yoshi’s easter egg hunt; I wonder what this is all about?

    • Actually , I take that back; the GBA version is cool; I will get it.

  19. are there any cheats for this game

  20. how do you beat the last level on world 2

  21. GO, YOSHI!

  22. baby bouser goes out-cold then,bouser comes and you beat him til he goes out-cold then,kemak makes bouser BIG!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  23. I beat the game P.S. not the bonus levels P.P.S. ask me anything!!!

  24. if you are running out of lives all the time, go to the level with those cotton creatures that make you dizzy. press b to pick up one of the round guys, don’t swallow. Then, go to the pipe the shyguys come out of. Get the round guy in between the pipe and wall, and he will just jump straight up and down. Then, press b to pick up a shyguy, and launch it from in front of the pipe so it goes right over. 1up every time you launch a shyguy. You can do it repeatedly until you feel you have enough lives.

    Only works for GBA game.

  25. i beat the game, but it took me like, two or three years…now all i ever do is yoshi’s island easter eggs and the bowser castle where you fight bowser…

  50. Ultimatepokemonmaster,i dont know, but yoshi is weaker than mario,so perhaps mario is tougher than yoshi,so the goombas that mario attacks will explode.(P.S. Do you have super mario 64 ds? The goombas explode no matter which character you use.)Ok,Bye!
