    GOLD YARN LOCATION: This one is easy to find. After crossing the water, you’ll find lava blocks. Launch upward to reach two lava blocks to the left. Send your friend right after landing on these two lava blocks to collect the yarn over a deadly bed of spikes.

    A hidden gem is found on the far right corner of the level. Avoid the green bubbles launched by the security cat – they’re deadly. Cross the lava blocks and step on the bomb block to the right of the question-mark sign. You’ll drop through two fake blocks to find the gem below.

    Use the orange spring to reach the out-of-reach cloud blocks. To the right you’ll find a tricky gem – get this one by quickly running over the fan block, but avoid dropping down into the lava block against the right wall. Step through the cloud to fall into the gem.

    To get past the water, set off the bomb blocks, then jump left to the lava blocks. Touch them with a double-jump to send yourself careening toward the wall of lava on the right, which will in turn shoot the friend to safety on the left.

    Ahead, you’ll find the first toast block. These toasts will spawn one toast enemy at a time. These little living pieces of burnt bread will chase you down, but don’t have all the abilities of a cat guard. Jump over them and run!

    The toast has one deadly ability – fire won’t hurt them. They’ll keep going while they’re on fire and burn your friend alive. Also, you’ll want to avoid getting caught between two pieces of toast. No one wants to be a friend sandwich.


    To reach the second gem, step onto the ice blocks on the left corner and leap to the higher lava block. The lower block will send your friend onto the platform on the right. The upper block will bounce the friend into another lava block and bounce him into the gem.

    GOLD YARN LOCATION: Another simple yarn. This one can be collected once you find two water blocks near a series of spikes on the walls and ceiling. Jump onto the lava block to the left, then use the fuzzy moving platform block to reach the yarn.

    To get to a secret level, look for a red shrimp creature with one eye. After bouncing through the path of lava blocks, you’ll find a room with spikes on the ceiling and two bomb blocks covering two lava blocks. Use the second of these lava blocks to leap into the brown block overhead. It’ll push the friend into a blue portal, taking you straight to the secret portal.

    Don’t miss the hidden gem behind the tree cut-out to the right of the blue portal.


    GOLD YARN LOCATION: Easy! Wait for the brown blocks to move into a position where your friend can double jump onto one, then you’ll have no problem getting to that sweet yarn.

    Avoid the lava blocks in the spike path. Up the moving platforms, you’ll find a gem underneath some cloud blocks to the right of water. To get the gem, squeeze through the fake brown block to the right of the lava. Just beware falling into the lava and shooting into the spikes.

    Yet another gem is hidden after jumping up the clouds. Before using the lava blocks to go up, you’ll find a bomb block over four brown blocks. Let the bomb block explode, then drop into the fake brown blocks and run right to find a hidden gem.

    Past the running gem cat, you’ll drop down near a lava block. To the right are two more gems guarded by cats. Use the lava block, then double-jump to the lava block embedded in the way to get another gem and use the portal to reach the exit. Simple as that.


    To get across the water, you’ll need to free the fuzzy moving platform. Grab the glowing block and jump, releasing [RT]. These floating blocks will hover where they are left. That’s an important detail to remember, but for now it just needs to get out of the way.

    A hidden gem is located above the water, after bouncing between two lava blocks. You’ll reach two cloud blocks, with a bomb block above three lighter colored blue blocks. These three light blue blocks are fakes, hiding a gem.

    GOLD YARN LOCATION: Found in the top right corner, protected by a laser block. Simply navigate the ice and don’t fall into the water.

    A tricky gem can be collected around the upper left corner. Grab the floating block and jump with it, leaving it up in the air.


    Use the lava block just right of the entrance to bounce through fake blocks. Use a double-jump to reach an early gem.

    Reaching the right corner, you’ll encounter the first rocket lift block. As long as you stand on the gray platform, the lift will rise straight up. Stepping off the lift will cause it to slowly fall.

    To cross the water, touch the bomb blocks to free the boat. Then hold [RT] near the water to draw the boat to the friend.

    GOLD YARN LOCATION: Easy! After sailing across the water in the boat, jump onto the orange spring on the ice blocks. You’ll fly into a portal, and out into the collectible.

    The last challenge consists of two floating fuzzy blocks and a cat guard sending over poison bubbles. One useful thing to note of the fuzzy blocks
