 A WORD FROM THE AUTHOR
 ¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯
"Super Mario 3D World makes everyone else look like they got HD all wrong."
                                              - Official Nintendo Magazine, 93%
"Super Mario 3D World is marvelous, and its constant variety and fantastic
light-hearted co-op gameplay proves Nintendo still knows how to tweak their
Mario formula in fun new ways."
                                                     - Jose Otero, IGN.com, 9.6
"Super Mario 3D World is a game of exceptional craft, of painstaking focus on
the minute details that are integral to making it feel special."
                                                   - Mark Walton, GameSpot, 9.0

Super Mario 3D World marks Nintendo's first stab at a 3D multiplayer Mario game
and hands-down, it's the best Wii U game yet. This guide aims to inform you of
all the positions of the Green Stars and stamps and the best player to play a
level. It's a game you should pick up if you're a Wii U owner, especially if
you love platformers. Have fun!

 NOTES
 ¯¯¯¯¯
1. Captain Toad and Mystery House levels are listed as the last level of every
world.
2. The term "Cat Climb" is used. It means that you climb the wall as a cat.
3. This guide will not cover the locations of 1-Ups and powerups for now. It
will be included in the multiplayer guide to obtain maximum points, but for now
it's not yet included.
4. If somehow you don't understand where you are supposed to be to get the item
after seeing the Green Star alert, consider reading the previous paragraph as
some Green Stars are in bonus areas.
5. Keep in mind some of the enemy names listed aren't their official names.

 Super Bell
 ¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯
This new powerup takes platforming to new levels. It allows Mario and his
friends to turn into furry felines that make the game easy for beginners, yet
requires a lot of skill to master. Jump, claw and meow your way through levels
with this powerup.

 Double Cherry
 ¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯
Boost your firepower with this special fruit! It creates an exact copy of your
character that mirrors the original's every move, including getting powerups
and using them! One will disappear if you get hit, but keep collecting them to
see how many Marios or Luigis there can be on screen! (And to test how powerful
the Wii U is)

 Beam/Light Box
 ¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯
This new powerup murders ghosts, Boos and shows you how dark areas look like!
Shine it onto a ghost and before long, they'll disappear! Reveal secrets and
find your way in the dark with this powerup.

 Cannon Box
 ¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯
Shoot cannonballs and kill enemies when you're in a hurry. This new powerup
helps you destroy baddies and pulverize bosses, especially when you charge your
shots.

 Coin Box
 ¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯
Earn coins for walking and moving around and earn even more when you run and
don't stop. Earn extra lives as you go along and gain coins galore!

 Propeller Block
 ¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯
Fly up hard-to-reach or otherwise impossible-to-reach spots with this over-the-
top (pun intended) powerup.

 Super Mushroom
 ¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯
Get extra protection and grow up so you won't die when you get hit. This is one
of gaming's most recognizable powerups and it returns in this adventure.

 Mega Mushroom
 ¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯
Grow Hulk-sized with this powerup and stomp on everything you see for a limited
time! Now this is what I call awesome!

 Fire Flower
 ¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯
Another one of gaming's most loved powerups, the Fire Flower lets you shoot 2
fireballs at a team to burn Goombas and other enemies alive. Ouch! Goes
perfectly with a Double Cherry to double firepower.

 Tanooki Leaf
 ¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯
One of the most popular powerups in Mario's extensive arsenal, this leaf turns
Mario into a racoon/bear that can float and spin his tail to kill enemies.

 NOTE ON THE MAP
 ¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯
I don't know where else to put this, so I'll put this here. The flagpoles on
the map differ on its completion status. The Bowser flag means it has not been
beaten, a Green Star at the top of the flag means all the Green Stars have been
collected and the flag will have different symbols depending on the last
character to complete it. The flag will also be gold if you hit the top of the
flag in the level itself.

Green Stars: 3
Stamp      : Cat Mario
Difficulty : 1/5

Woohoo! Welcome to World 1-1! As you gain control of your character, you have
some space to move around and get used to the controls. The game allows you to
move in any direction you want, but once you press X/Y/x/y/1/Z and run, then
you move in one of 8 directions. The game also has a slightly different running
system, you gain a quick burst of speed after running for a short while.

So, once you're used to the controls, head north and hit the sole ? block to
get a Super Bell! It turns your character into a cat, allowing you to climb
walls, claw enemies and run around on all fours. Oh, and did I mention it's
really cute? It's almost purr-fect!

You'll see an enemy approaching you - that's a Goomba! If   .----NEW ENEMY----.
you've been out of that rock for that last 25 years at all, | Goombas return! |
you should recognize this little guy. He's armless, most    | Goombas are the |
likely brainless and you'll see him a lot. Just jump on him | main soldiers   |
or scratch him or burn him (if you've got a Fire Flower) or | of Bowser's     |
do damage in any way you want and he dies.                  | army. It dies   |
                                                            | to a jump, a    |
OK, now proceed eastward and go through the Clear Pipe.     | Koopa shell or  |
Then, go through the Clear Pipe northeast once you exit to  | an attack of    |
climb to higher ground. Hit the wide ? block here to get a  | any kind.       |
second Super Bell, which goes to your item storage that is  '-----------------'
accessed via the - Button.

--- GREEN STAR ALERT ---

Now continue eastward and head into the Clear Pipe going up. As you go past it,
tilt up on the Control Stick/D-pad to go up and get the Green Star, the primary
collectible in this game.

As you exit, use either the wall to climb as a Cat or use the stairs to the
east to go up to higher ground. Here's a new mechanic: Goombas going through
pipes. Either defeat them all before proceeding or just jump over the gap to
head to the next platform. Then, head towards the cannon to be blasted over
to the next area.

--- CHECKPOINT FLAG ALERT ---

Once you land, hit the Bowser flag in front of you. That's a Checkpoint Flag,
if you die you will return here. But it does not save your progress in the game
so if you return to the Map screen or quit the game, it won't save where you
are.

--- GREEN STAR ALERT ---

The tree north of where you land has a Super Bell if you climb it, but the
particular thing of notice here is that you should chase and tag the bunny up
on higher ground. Once you tag it, it will leave a Green Star for you.

--- STAMP ALERT ---

Next, head into the Green Pipe you see along the wall to the north. You will
arrive in an area with a Clear Pipe forming a T-shape. Head into the hole
through the bottom and arrive on the area above. Collect the glowing blue
thing that you see. That's a stamp. There's one per every normal level. This
one in particular is a Cat Mario stamp. You use stamps as a template of sorts
to post on Miiverse. Exit through the Green Pipe in the corner.

As you exit, climb the tree in between the pipe you entered the room and the
one you just exited. Climb it and jump towards the platform towards the north.
Here, there's a giant green clock you can collect to obtain a 100 extra seconds
on the timer. You then want to chase and tag the big bunny, who gives you a 
Mega Mushroom to make you grow Hulk-sized.

--- GREEN STAR ALERT ---

Rush towards the bridge eastward when you see a pile of giant bricks on the
ground, jump then press ZL/ZR/B depending on your controller to ground pound
and smash through the bricks. Head east and get Green Star #3. Now, go into
the Warp Box to return to the surface.

Either use the Clear Pipe or climb the wall with a Cat Suit to head to higher
ground. Now head North and climb the stairs. At the top, build up some speed if
you're not a cat and long jump to get to the top and get as points as you can,
or if you're a cat just chill because you can just climb up the pole. Anyway,
that's all for World 1-1!

As you exit, a path will form to 1-2 Koopa Troopa Cave.

Head northeast and you will spot a new enemy - the Koopa    .----NEW ENEMY----.
Troopa. The original soldiers of Bowser's enemy, they were  | Green Koopa     |
replaced as the main soldier in 1985 in Super Mario Bros    | Troopas are     |
because they were considered too hard. Anyways, jump onto   | propelled out   |
the Green Pipe northeast to proceed.                        | of their shell  |
                                                            | when jumped on, |
Head into the Clear Pipe towards the east and on higher     | which you can   |
ground you try out one of the game's new features - hijack  | hijack their    |
Koopa's shell! Carry it with X and run around soon enough   | shells! Haha!   |
you'll be in it, moving around and killing enemies!         '-----------------'

Anyway, as you jump down, you can take the Koopa shell here, carry it towards
the gap between the walls that have Clear Pipes towards the north. Release it
and if you timed it right, you can get infinite lives after the 8th jump and
each consecutive jump after that. Your life counter's limit in 1110, which is
displayed as Crown crown crown or triple crown for short. You won't be able to
do it in one try though, because there's not enough time to do it with the 500
second timer limit.

--- GREEN STAR ALERT ---
--- CHECKPOINT FLAG ALERT ---

Then, head east and into the cannon to be blasted towards a new area. Here, use
the clouds to your advantage and get the Green Star. I then recommend using the
clouds to climb up towards the ceiling and then east to get an extra 100 on the
timer. Then, head through the Clear Pipe and hit the Checkpoint Flag just east.

North of the flag, hit the wall precisely north to hit an invisible block. Then
jump on top of it and jump precisely in the middle to get a Fire Flower, a
classic Mario item. 

--- GREEN STAR ALERT ---

Head east and use the purple blocks as stairs to climb onto the platform above
and into the Mystery Box. Defeat both Koopas in under 10 seconds and a Green
Star will pop out of the panel just north.

After you exit, just continue heading all the way east and into the cannon to
be blasted to the next area.

--- STAMP ALERT ---

This clear pipe has coins if you navigate it properly, so be sure to take the
correct path when playing with friends. In the inbetween area here, jump along
the northern wall to hit an invisible block. Jump on it and hit it again, rinse
and repeat a third time to head to a new area. Enter the Clear Pipe in the wall
to obtain a Gold Coin stamp.

--- GREEN STAR ALERT ---

Don't fall! Head east and when you see the stack of Goombas, ground pound when
you're precisely above them to steal their treasure - a Green Star! There's
nothing else of interest, so head into the Green Pipe, climb the stairs and
we're done!

As you exit the level, it will form a path to 1-A Chargin' Chuck Blockade and
the Toad House.

--- SECRET EXIT LOCATION ---

Keep a Cat Suit as you proceed through the level and just a few steps past the
pipe leading to the level's Stamp, use the Cat Suit to climb up to the north
wall. You will then find a red Warp Pipe that transports you straight to World
2!

Piranha Plant, head northwest and hit the POW block to      '-----------------'
destroy the blocks above it and revealing a Green Pipe. Enter it.

--- GREEN STAR ALERT ---

In here, hit the P-Switch to reveal a bunch of blue coins. Collect them all
before the time runs out to reveal Green Star #2. If you're having trouble, try
to memorize the patterns coming in next time, or have friends help out. Also,
being a cat is recommended. (That sounded weird) Once all the coins have been
collected, a Green Star will pop out of the panel. Exit through the pipe.

--- STAMP ALERT ---

As you exit, either Wall Jump or Cat Climb the shaft to get the Cat Goomba
stamp. Continue climbing and use the POW blocks near the group of Cat Goombas
to proceed, or climb the tree east.

If you used the POW blocks, Cat Climb the wall north, then Cat Climb the tree.
After that, scratch the gear as a cat until as high as possible before climbing
the pillar as fast as possible. Then, head into the Smiling Glowing Cloud to be
blasted to the sky above.

--- GREEN STAR ALERT ---

Hit the ? Block in the sky area to get a Starman and be invincible for a period
of time! Use it in conjunction with the speed-up pads here to defeat all the
Piranha Plants. At the end, jump to get Green Star #3.

Head north until you meet the Giant Piranha Plant. It takes .----NEW ENEMY----.
2 hits to finish it off and head into the Warp Box that     | Giant Piranha   |
appears after defeating it.                                 | Plants take 2   |
                                                            | hits to kill.   |
And we're done with 1-3! If you want to obtain the Golden   '-----------------'
Flagpole, you need to be a cat. The Cat Goomba produces a Super Bell after its
defeat, so no worrying there. Anyway, COURSE CLEAR!

The path will then open up to 1-4 Plessie's Plunging Falls and 1-5 Switch
Scramble Circus.

Green Stars: 3
Stamp      : Plessie
Difficulty : 1/5

Welcome to Plessie's Plunging Falls! You'll be controlling a mythical creature
known as Plessie in this level and advice: much easier in single-player. You
use the same controls, Control stick/D-pad to move and A/B/2/a/b to jump.

The Gold Rings are worth 3 coins each, so collect as many as possible. Also,
you will meet a new enemy! I don't know their name yet, so .----NEW ENEMY----.
help will be appreciated! A simple bonk on the head kills  | ??????????????? |
them and gives you some extra height.                      '-----------------'

--- GREEN STAR ALERT ---

Stay in the middle and use the speed-up pad and press A when you hit the ramp
to get the first Green Star. Just continue heading north, if you decide to veer
right and jump on the enemy to get launched up on to solid land and hit the Red
Coin Ring to obtain a 1-Up or a powerup.

--- GREEN STAR ALERT ---

But after the path divides into two and rejoins, veer left and head straight in
to the waterfall on the far left as the path splits a second time to obtain
the second Green Star.

Also, as the path rejoins, you'll find a Starman waiting to be collected. Yeah!

--- STAMP ALERT ---

Going after Green Star 2 means missing out on the Stamp. You need to play this
level twice. Choose the rightmost path instead of through the waterfall and
follow the winding path and you will see the Plessie stamp. Collect it.

--- GREEN STAR ALERT ---

Continue forward stay in the middle lane once you pass all the enemies and the
ramps. Plessie will then jump off the ramp and angle it correctly to collect
the third and final Green Star.

Once it's been cleared, the path will open to 1-F Bowser's Highway Showdown.

1-5 Switch Scramble Circus makes you turn all the blue ? tiles into yellow !
tiles to proceed. It doesn't matter which way, but you can't step back onto
them or else they will turn back to a blue ? tile. Understand? OK, let's go!

NOTE: The tiles' official name are flipswitches, but I will be referring to
them as tiles.

As you complete the first set of tiles, you will meet a new .----NEW ENEMY----.
enemy called the Biddybud, returning from 3D Land. They're  | Biddybuds are a |

                                                            | on them to kill |
You will now meet a new enemy - Bees. They fly and home in  | them.           |
on you once you're spotted, but a simple bonk kills them    '-----------------'
too. Here, you will also be introduced to the Roulette      .----NEW ENEMY----.
Block, which spins quickly showing a variety of items such  | Bees home in on |
as the Mushroom, Starman and Fire Flower. Whatever you hit  | you once you're |
is what you get, simple enough.                             | spotted.        |
                                                            '-----------------'
Anyway, proceed and turn all of the tiles yellow, using the jump pads to your
advantage. Once you finish, be careful, there's a swarm of bees on the other
side. Instead of heading straight for the Warp Box, you might want to do some
thing else first.

--- GREEN STAR ALERT ---

Use the left jump pad and Wall Jump or Cat Climb the shaft to obtain Green Star
1!

--- CHECKPOINT FLAG ALERT ---

Head north and hit the checkpoint flag along the way. Now the puzzles start to
become more challenging. It's a grid of tiles with fences and Biddybuds as
hazards. What I recommend is doing the outer circle first before moving inwards
to make it more easier.

Once you're done, the wall will explode allowing you to proceed.

--- GREEN STAR ALERT ---

Use the Jump Pads to proceed north here, but as you go up you will notice a
Mystery Box with Biddybuds around it. Enter it and destroy the northwest-most
block to obtain Green Star 2.

Once you exit, hit the Red Coin Ring to the east and collect all 8 red coins
to get a 1-Up or powerup.

--- GREEN STAR ALERT ---

As you proceed up, you will come to a new area with moving  .----NEW ENEMY----.
row of tiles in the middle with a Magikoopa and a Green     | Magikoopas are  |
Star. I recommend doing the outer circle and stay in a      | wizards that    |
corner until the row of tiles come, allowing you to obtain  | poof balls of   |
the Green Star. I recommend a Fire Flower or Super Bell to  | magic that hurt |

and fall to your death.                                     | on the head     |

Use the Clear Pipe and head into the cannon. Launch just    '-----------------'
slightly before the rings all line up to get 12 coins. Flip all the tiles to
lower the platform and get a chance at the top of the flagpole. BUT, there's
one last thing.

--- STAMP ALERT ---

Wall kick off the north wall to get the Super Bell stamp. That simple. Now, on
to victory!

Once you complete this level, the path to 1-F Bowser's Highway Showdown will
reveal. Also, the slot machine will appear.

In this level, learn how to use the soccer ball bombs to your advantage. You
will need this skill in this level, so get used to it first.

--- GREEN STAR ALERT ---

Run into the Green Star Ring you notice towards the northwest. It will make 8
green coins appear. Collect them all to make Green Star 1 appear.

Use the moving platforms to move towards the next area. Use the soccer ball
bombs the machine-thingy produces and kick it towards the gray blocks. Under it
is the Bowser stamp.

Now Cat Climb the wall and go above this cubby hole of sorts and as a cat,
scratch the gear, quickly Cat Climb the walls and head east to obtain the next
Green Star.

Proceed northeast once you're back down and as a cat, take down this Goomba
stack and take the Green Star.

Now, either use the soccer ball bombs to destroy the wall of bricks or just Cat
Climb it. Now, use the Warp Box to meet the boss - Bowser in a purple Cadillac-

Anyways, proceed eastwards and beware of the Conkdor here   | the head kills  |
as you pass by it. You'll need to cross above the sand and  | them.           |
hit the ? block to obtain a Super Bell.                     '-----------------'

--- GREEN STAR ALERT ---

Get onto the trio of blocks and climb the wall here to obtain the first Green
Star in between a circle of coins.

Use the jump pad as you proceed east and climb the platforms, killing the
Conkdors as you go along. After the 2nd Conkdor, you will notice a green block
along the wall. Cat Climb all the way to the top and enter the golden pipe.

Hit the golden P-switch and...

So money does rain from the sky! Collect as many as you can, after that, exit
through the pipe.

--- CHECKPOINT FLAG ALERT ---

Proceed east and activate the Red Coin Ring, collecting all the red coins to
obtain a 1-Up or powerup. Proceed east, then up the slope past a group of 6
Conkdors (just run past them) and trigger the Checkpoint Flag here.

Head north, carefully passing by the moving platforms. There's a Roulette Block
just past that and then, you have to navigate the narrow pathways with Conkdors
coming in for the kill.

--- GREEN STAR ALERT ---

Just run past them and hopefully, if you don't stop, you'll make it past the
Conkdors just fine. Past that, you'll see a Conkdor surrounded by 4 gray blocks.
Get him to destroy the northern block and get the second Green Star.

Just west of the Conkdor climb the sandfall (get it?) to get an extra 100
seconds on the clock. Also, one of the blocks to the northeast is a Coin Box.
Hit it as many times as you can and it will become a Coin Box - the faster you
run the faster the coins come!

--- STAMP ALERT ---

Proceed eastward and you will see the goal pole to the north. Collect the stamp
here first, but for now proceed towards the east.

--- GREEN STAR ALERT ---

Captain Toad is being harassed by a Conkdor! Kill it and he'll give you a Green
Star! Waahoo! Too easy!

Anyway, proceed back to where you found the stamp, run north and boom! You're
done for now!

The path will then open to 2-2 Puffprod Peaks (location at least) and 2-3
Shadow Play Alley. Also, you will be asked to set up Miiverse.

Hold on there! You need 15 Green Stars for this level, which you should have
plenty to spare if you've been following my guide.

Green Stars: 3
Stamp      : Goomba
Difficulty : 1.5/5

Welcome to Puffprod Peaks! You'll need the GamePad to play this level because
it is used to make platforms move using the touch screen and blow on platforms
to push them along.

As you begin, move forward and use the GamePad's touch screen to raise the
purple platform or alternatively Cat Climb the wall behind it. Head northwest
and use the touch screen to raise the platforms again. Do you see the two
platforms you can raise. Raise the northern one, the one further away and drop
down to the hole below.

--- STAMP ALERT ---

Use the touch screen in this room again to raise the        .----NEW ENEMY----.
platform and obtain the Goomba stamp.                       | Galoombas are   |
                                                            | a stronger kind |
Anyways, exit using the Green Pipe. I forgot to mention     | of Goombas that |
that raising the first platform will reveal the Mini Goomba | require 2 hits  |
species of enemies. They're smaller and won't kill you, but | to kill.        |
instead hang on to you and slow you down.                   '-----------------'

--- GREEN STAR ALERT ---
                                                            .----NEW ENEMY----.
Proceed onwards and use the touch screen to extend the      | Mini Goombas    |
blocks and create stairs to proceed to the top. Extend the  | don't kill but  |
platforms in a zigzag pattern like this:                    | slow you down.  |
                                                            '-----------------'
    G                     Follow the path and once you get to the top, either
                          wall jump off of the left wall or Cat Climb to obtain
 '------.     .-------<   the first Green Star.
        '-----'.------>
        .------'          --- CHECKPOINT FLAG ALERT ---
 >------'
 <------.                 Move towards the east and hit the Checkpoint Flag
        '------.          here before proceeding towards the north.
               '------<
               .------>   In this next section, you will blow on the GamePad's
        .------'          microphone to move these platforms in their set path.
 X >----'                 So, do exactly just that to raise the platform and
                          proceed to the next area using the Warp Box.

In this next area, continue using the GamePad mic to blow the platforms. The
Mini Goombas here will get blown away, which is a nice little touch. In the
next section, there are 3 parallel platforms. Don't blow to let the first one
reach the end of its path, blow to use the second one and the transfer over to
the third one, let it return and use the Cloud Cannon to reach a bonus area.

--- GREEN STAR ALERT ---

Obtain the Starman and run through this area to obtain a 1UP as you kill all of
the Galoombas. Don't forget to jump at the end to obtain the second Green Star.

--- GREEN STAR ALERT ---

Proceed as usual and again use the touch screen to extend the platforms. You
will notice that under the third platform there is a track. Blow on the mic to
make a platform come and fetch, let your character drop and use the platform to
obtain Green Star number 3.

Use the blow platform and extend the second platform before going to the third
one to be back on solid ground.

Proceed west and do the usual affair, use the blow platform, extend the touch
platforms and GOAL!

Once you finish the path will open to a Pipe with a Toad House and 2-4 Really
Rolling Hills.

Green Stars: 3
Stamp      : Piranha Plant
Difficulty : 1/5
Best player: Luigi

Welcome to 2-3, one of the levels Nintendo's really proud of, because boy I've
seen numerous videos and screenshots of it!

This level is more of a side-scrolling level than a Full 3D one, but it's one
of my personal favorite levels in the game. Proceed east and you'll see a
potted Piranha Plant that you can grab. Take it and it takes the role of Yoshi
- it eats everything in sight!

--- GREEN STAR ALERT ---

As you proceed east, you'll come across gaps in between pillars. In the second
gap proceed south, towards the screen, to obtain the first Green Star. See, you
are using shadows to find secrets in this level, which I think is a really neat
idea.

Proceed east once again and you'll come across the annoying fuzzies. They're no
longer annoying (in this level) because your Piranha Plant devour them whole!
Yeah!

As you proceed right, if you're still is possesion of a potted Piranha, there's
a second one. Guess what yours does? It eats it and obliterates it! That's kind
of... disturbing, but OK...

--- CHECKPOINT FLAG ALERT ---

Proceed right and you'll come across a new enemy - the      .----NEW ENEMY----.
Venus Firetraps! Your potted Plant buddy will eat them too, | Venus Firetraps |
so no worries for now. Continue towards the right and you   | shoot fireballs |
will then come across the Checkpoint Flag.                  | but they stay   |
                                                            | in one place so |
Hit it and you'll have to say goodbye to your buddy. Drop   | they're not too |
him and go through the Super Mario Bros. 2 style door.      | hard.           |
                                                            '-----------------'
Now you're playing in the shadows, just like the silhouette levels in DKCR.
Continue right and you'll come across another potted plant to help you along
the way. Just past the fuzzies there's a Super Bell hanging out in the air so
grab that if you need one.

--- STAMP ALERT ---

Be careful of the giant Piranha Plant here. Your smaller one won't eat it, so
you'll have to jump on it. Don't lose your cat powers, because you'll need it
to obtain the stamp. Use your scratch attack to claw through the bricks under
the Piranha Plant to obtain the Piranha Plant stamp.

--- GREEN STAR ALERT ---

As you return to the light world, proceed right and blow on .----NEW ENEMY----.
the Pink Fuzzies (that's what I call them). Use the GamePad | Pink Fuzzies    |
to knock them out for a few moments. Go into the Mystery    | can be knocked  |
Box behind it. Press the P-Switch and go under the stairs   | out with a blow |
to get the second Green Star.                               | of the mic.     |
                                                            '-----------------'
--- GREEN STAR ALERT ---

Continue proceeding east, past the moving platforms. Bypass the door and go
into the hole in the wall. You'll find Captain Toad being harassed once again.
Proceed south and destroy the Bowser cutout and approach the Captain to get the
third and final Green Star.

Now return to the door, exit and GOAL!

The path will then form to 2-4 Really Rolling Hills.

Welcome to 2-4 Really Rolling Hills! This level has changed quite a bit since
it was first shown off, from changing from 2-1 to 2-4, to changing names from
Mice Hills to Really Rolling Hills and many other minor details in the level.

Anyways, as soon as you head north you'll meet a new enemy  .----NEW ENEMY----.

Use the Clear Pipe just north of the rolling hill and Cat   '-----------------'
Climb the wall north. Up there is your first Green Star.

--- STAMP ALERT ---

Immediately south of the first Green Star is a switch only Mario can trigger.
Stand on it as him to obtain the level's stamp - Small Mario.

Proceed east towards the rolling hills with Galoombas and mice. There's a red
coin ring in this area if you wish to collect a powerup or 1-Up. Immediately
east of where you enter, there's a crate containing a baseball that you can use
to defeat the Galoombas and mice if you wish and under one of the rolling hills
towards the southeast has a 1UP if you crawl under it.

--- CHECKPOINT FLAG ALERT ---

You can Cat Climb the wall to the east and a load of coins will appear as you
run but once you're done playing around, head north and hit the Checkpoint Flag
here.

Once you're done, head north and then east towards the Green Pipe in this area
to proceed to the next section.

Take the top route and once the path rejoins, Cat Climb the wall to the east to
access a hidden alcove where a load of coins await.

--- GREEN STAR ALERT ---

Enter the warp pipe below where you're standing and activate all of the floor
tiles here by stepping on them. Doing so will cause the level's second Green
Star to spawn. Exit and proceed east.

--- GREEN STAR ALERT ---

You will then come across three rolling wheels. Drop in between any of the gaps
to come to an underground area with the level's last Green Star. Use the pipe
to return and then enter the pipe next to it.

And we're done with this level! After hitting the flagpole the path will spawn
to 2-A Big Galoomba Blockade.

You will see a curious item as you enter the level - a Cherry! That's a new
powerup in the game that was put in accidentally by a programmer, but the team
liked it so they made a powerup for it! Anyways, the Double Cherry makes a
clone of your character that follows your every move! Doubles firepower and
doubles the challenge too!

Anyways, a note before we proceed - careful not to lose too many clones as the
level's stamp and one of the Green Stars requires 4 and 2 people respectively.

Proceed towards the northwest corner and jump to hit an invisible block that
contains a Fire Flower, which paired with the Double Cherry is ****ing deadly.

--- GREEN STAR ALERT ---

Proceed east and hit the leftmost crate to the left of the Clear Pipe to get a
second Double Cherry. Now destroy the top-right crate to get the level's first
Green Star.

Use the Clear Pipe and then the Green Pipe to proceed to the next area.

--- GREEN STAR ALERT ---

As you proceed forward, use your firepower to destroy all   .----NEW ENEMY----.
these new soldier like enemies (feel free to inform me of   | Soldier-like    |
their official name). Anyways, proceed forward and if you   | enemies walk in |
followed my advice of at least 2 characters on screen, use  | a line and die  |
the seperator to split up your clones and step on the 2     | after 1 hit.    |
panels to spawn the level's second Green Star.              '-----------------'

--- CHECKPOINT FLAG ALERT ---

Use the rightmost Clear Pipe to proceed to the next area. Proceed north and hit
the level's Checkpoint Flag as you go. Use your firepower here and destroy all
of the soldier-like enemies. Be sure to collect the Double Cherry that one of
them leaves behind to spawn the third clone.

Proceed to the easternmost corner of this sloping area and jump just in front
of the purple block to get another Double Cherry for backup.

--- STAMP ALERT ---

Move towards the western edge of this area and get one of your clones atop the
leftmost ? block. Now get another clone to hit below that and continue doing so
until you spot the level's Stamp. Oh and the rightmost ? block contains another
Double Cherry.

There's also a Red Coin Ring in this area if you wish to use it, but once all
your business is done proceed north. You will then come     .----NEW ENEMY----.
across a Fire Bros., easily killed with a fireball. Once he | Fire Bros shoot |
is dead, a Green Pipe will spawn which you enter to         | fireballs but   |
proceed to the level's final area.                          | are killed in a |
                                                            | single hit.     |

In the final area, if you have at least 3 clones and yourself, step on the 4
platform and get it to rise to obtain the level's third and final Green Star.

Now you can proceed to the goal and we're done with this level! The path will
now spawn to 2-F Bowser's Bullet Bill Brigade and also the world's slot
machine will open up.

There's not much I can help you here, so just grab a Fire Flower from one of

Just past the first tank section in between the Venus Firetraps you will find
the level's first Green Star.

Proceed onto the second tank section. Destroy the crate on the second tank to
obatin the level's second Green Star.

--- STAMP ALERT ---

On the third tank, destroy the crates to make way for you to climb the level's
stamp - Boom Boom.

You will then come across the Green Pipe, but halt! If you still have the
Cannon Box, use it to shoot at the wall behind the pipe to obtain the level's

Best player: Peach

Proceed into the Mystery Box and you have to successfully grab the treasure of
each of the Mystery Boxes to proceed to the next one. What's the treasure you
might ask? A Green Star! There are 5 Mystery Boxes in total!

First: There are two Galoombas here. You should not have any trouble at all
defeating them in time, so this is an easy grab. Defeat them all to get ---
Green Star 1 ---.

Second: There are two Koopa Troopas. You should not have any trouble either,
just be sure to avoid the Koopa shell if you accidentally kicked it. Defeat the
two to get --- Green Star 2 ---.

Third: There are two Cat Goombas. A Super Bell will spawn if you defeat them
along with --- Green Star 3 ---.

Fourth: Now it starts to get a tiny bit challenging. Defeat all 4 Conkdors to
obtain --- Green Star 4 ---. Tip: Collect the Super Bell in the third one to
make this one a bit easier on you.

Fifth: The 5th Mystery Box contains 2 Fire Bros. Defeat both of them while
avoiding their firepower to obtain the level's fifth and final Green Star -
--- Green Star 5 ---.
                                                           
So, that's all for this level - an easy 5 Green Stars to 
obtain. Now, onwards to World 3!

Difficulty : 2/5
Best player: Toad

Welcome to the frozen park! The walkthrough is coming soon, .----NEW ENEMY----.
but here's a tip: You need a Propeller Box that is located  | Snowmen leave   |
behind a tree just after the first (short) ice section.     | a snowball when |
                                                            | they die, ideal |
--- GREEN STAR ALERT ---                                    | for hitting     |
                                                            | other enemies.  |
Proceed towards the south after obtaining your Propeller    '-----------------'
Block and then towards the east. Kill all the Biddybuds necessary to enter the
alcove and obtain the first Green Star.

Continue to proceed east and then north towards the long ? block. Hit it to
obtain a Tanooki Leaf! This powerup enables you to float after a jump, just
like Peach without losing speed. As a result, it kind of makes wearing this as
Peach kind of redundant.

As you proceed east, you'll come across a Goomba in a skating shoe. You can
kill it and hijack the shoe! This is obviously a tribute to the famous Kuribo's
Shoe is Super Mario Bros. 3.

--- CHECKPOINT FLAG ALERT ---

Proceed east and hit the Checkpoint Flag before proceeding. There's a Red Coin
Ring in the middle of the next ice section but get the shoe first, it's tough to
walk in a circle on ice. Remember: it's not a platformer without slippery ice
physics.

--- GREEN STAR ALERT ---

Proceed back to solid land and you'll notice a bunny with a sort of green color
glowing around him. After him! He has the level's second Green Star. After you
tag him he'll give you just that. It's much faster and easier to catch him as
Toad.

--- STAMP ALERT ---

Just after the second Green Star, you'll come across another ice section.
Either slowly manuever your way around the narrow ledge to obtain the stamp or
use a skating shoe (if you still have one), whichever you prefer, to obtain the
Para-Biddybud Stamp.

--- GREEN STAR ALERT ---

You'll see the level's exit pipe, but hold on - if you had followed my advice
of using the Propeller Block, use it to fly up near the wall behind to reach a
hidden alcove located precisely in the center to obtain the level's third and
final Green Star. You can also climb up the tree next to it, wall kick off the
wall and float back to safety if you have a Tanooki Tail or Cat Climb the wall
as a cat.

Use the pipe, climb the ice stairs and go for the goal! The path will now form
to 3-2 Chain Link Charge and 3-3 Shifty Boo Mansion.

Green Stars: 3
Stamp      : Cat Luigi
Difficulty : 2.5/5
Best player: Peach

As you enter the level, hit the second ? block and get the Super Bell. Believe
me: it does wonders.

Proceed east and you'll see why: there ate gates that can be climbed with cat
powers, which immediately makes this level much easier.

--- GREEN STAR ALERT ---

You'll soon come across 2 moving gates with a narrow platform in between. Step
on it and then Cat Climb the grate to its right to obtain the level's first
Green Star.

--- GREEN STAR ALERT ---

Continue to proceed east and you'll soon come across a Warp Box. Don't go into
it! Just east, there are some grates that get in between you and the level's
second Green Star. It's much easier to do this as Peach.

--- STAMP ALERT ---

Anyway, proceed up this area, being careful of the grates that try to push you
off the platform. If you have the Cat Suit, the stamp is easy to get. Simply
climb the Clear Pipe to obtain the Cat Luigi stamp, but if not, ground pound
the cloud above it to obtain it.

--- GREEN STAR ALERT ---

Immediately after, if you're a cat, use your scratch move to activate the gear
and raise the wooden platform a short ways ahead. Rush towards it, Cat Climb it
and obtain the level's third and final Green Star.

The next section involes more grates that try to push you off. It's really not
that hard since it's basic platforming skill and I recommend taking out the
Biddybuds if you're having trouble.

And we're done with 3-2 Chain Link Charge for now! You can use the Cat Gear to
raise the platform and go for the goal, but you'd have to be a Cat to do that
anyways and the cat climbs the flagpole, so I really don't get the point.

Anyway, after that the path will form to 3-4 Pretty Plaza Panic.

Welcome to the first of many Boo Houses! Very tricky level and has a lot of
secrets, so be prepared to get both your eyes and instincts working at full
power!

The full guide is coming soon. Here are the locations of the collectibles.

Green Star 1: Go into the Boo painting you see when the stairs split.
Green Star 2: In the library area, stand on the left on one of the bookshelves
and when one of the shelves retract it will reveal a hidden alcove.
Green Star 3: In the last area, jump on the couch and have it take you to an
area with the third and final Green Star.

Stamp: Just after GS1, go on the couch and have it rise up to help you get it.
