The player will first enter Farfall through Sky Town. At the ledge on the far left, where a red bird sits, the protagonist should continue off the edge, where they will descend into the area. Ultimately they will land on the ground where two sets of breakable blocks lie. The divebombing ability is necessary to advance farther.
Many of Farfall's screens have white backgrounds with pink clouds. Solid layers are typically grey.
Farfall is mostly made up of two columns, and as a result, much of its travel involves going downwards. When the player breaks the rocks, they can choose to enter the left passage or continue falling through a spiked passage.
- A heart is found behind a heart door by going through the spike passage and requires the yellow energy boost to obtain.
- The player can pop a set of balloons clockwise, causing a heart to appear.
- A Blue Orb is found behind a heart door if the player falls all the to the very bottom of Farfall via the spiked passage. This powerup increases the number of crystals found in pots.
- A golden orb can be acquired after defeating the blue rock boss.
