Back-and-Forth Road (おせば ひらくみち?)is the fourth main area in Hey! Pikmin. This area features several iron blocks, and most of them need to be pushed in non-trivial ways, including pushing them in the opposite direction as expected, pushing them only partially to reach hidden areas, and needing several Pikmin to drag a large block.
At the beginning, the player can call some Red Pikmin that are jumping on some Seeding Dandelions. After that, Olimar will encounter some Red Pikmin, trying to push an iron block. Those obstacles are omnipresent in this level, and need to be pushed in order to progress in the area. Some time after this, the player will meet some Yellow Pikmin, that are required in order to access the first treasure, the Stopped Doomsday Clock. After walking some time, the player needs to push an iron block, and to place it right under a doorway, in order to access the second treasure, the Smile Detector, which is buried. Not so long after this, the player has to solve a little puzzle to reach the Independence Monument. To do this, the player has to break a dirt block with a Pikmin to reveal a doorway, then, Olimar has to push an iron block to create a path towards the door. On the other side, the player has to push a huge iron block and kill a Crested Mockiwi in order to go through a door that leads to the last treasure, and the exit.
