Basic 1-2 Warpless:


  • The major notable trick in this level is referred to as the "1-2 skip," which entirely bypasses the second screen of 1-2
  • Though very precise, the trick is easily attempted multiple times in succession and can be grasped by a new player with a little bit of practice.
  • The recommended method for performing this trick involves spitting a flower enemy (Crayzee Dayzee) into the wall and bouncing off of it as shown in the GIF.
  • After landing 1-2 skip, you go a bit to the left so you can have right momentum when you clear the wall.
  • You have to jump over the second pit or you will fall in and lose time.
  • Be sure to have an extra egg to shoot the pihranha plant near the end, saving a bit of time not collecting the red coins.

1-2 Skip: Spit Method

Spit Method
  • You set up the flower spit by touching the left side of the wooden post closest to the wall as shown in the video.
  • Then jump onto the post while holding right and jump when you are in about the middle of the post.
  • Hold B the entire time.
  • When Yoshi is about directly over the red arrow, release forward and press Y at about the same time.
  • If you did it on the correct frame, you will continue holding B and be able to easily flutter over the ledge.

1-2 Skip: Perfect Jump Method

Perfect Jump Method
  • This 1-2 skip method is performed by combining a perfect jump with an extended flutter.
  • The trick is simple to understand, but hard to execute: you must bounce on a Shy Guy and then immediately perform a first-frame jump off of the wooden posts.
  • If executed correctly, Yoshi will flutter much higher than usual.
  • A second flutter can then give Yoshi just enough height to go on top of the level, and skip the entire middle section.

Optimal Second Screen

  • You can opt out of 1-2 skip and complete the 2nd screen when just starting out.
  • For the jump under the flower, just press and hold jump at the red arrow sign and the auto flutter will get you on the ledge.
