    World 1 - 1					     **w1-1**
    
    Time: 500 seconds
    
    Head west, climb the platforms, and there is a mushroom between two
    blocks. Shortly after that, there is the first star coin. After that,
    there is some more music notes and a hit-able question block, it
    has a fire flower in it, if you haven't already lost your mushroom.
    Continue heading west, there is a block above some platforms that
    you can hit multiple times for multiple coins, after that, you get
    the block collecting tons of coins.  There is some music blocks
    along the route, and then the mid-point. Continue heading west you
    will see more music notes, and the second coin surrounded by bricks.
    Just after, there is a brick in the ground, ground pound it, and you
    will enter a secret area. Inside...? Found out yourself. Once
    outside again, you should be able to use this same pipe to go to a 
    secret area above the clouds, hit the P block and run and collect the
    third star coin. If you want more coins after falling, which I'm sure
    you do, head to the left of the pipe you just came out of, and there 
    will be another brick on the ground.  Ground pound it, and get those 
    lovely coins. Above the platforms just to the left of the ground 
    brick, is another brick that will net you more money than Bill Gates. 
    Head to the right, and soon you will be at the end.
    
    World 1-2					     **w1-2**
    
    Time: 500 seconds
    
    Head right, hit the pow block, jump up and to the right, so some
    coins fall down, collect them, and run into the pipe. Once you hit
    rock bottom, use a ground pound, and collect the coins. Continue
    to the right, where you have to jump a gap, and there will be lots
    of bricks and two POW blocks.  Hit the first one to expose a big
    coin.  Hit the second one to gain access to the star coin. Continue
    heading east, you'll see some platforms going up, go past those,
    you'll see some going down, go past those. There will be a POW block
    go ahead and nail it. Head down and start throwing some fireballs
    into the pipe if you got the ability to do so. Out pops a giant
    mushroom. Stomp those grounds east like you own the place. Past the
    midway point, all the way till you find another star coin. Just to
    the right of the platforms heading down, is some bricks, hop up on
    them and continue to head right. You'll find a POW block, go ahead
    and use it. Then take the pipe up.  Here, hit the POW block again,
    and jump up on the solid blocks, and run to the flag.
    
    World 1-3					     **w1-3**
    
    Time: 500 seconds
    
    Slide down and take out the two Goombas.  Over the pit, is some
    blocks.  One contains a leaf (if you're big), head up into the trees
    nearby to collect some more coins. Continue heading to the right
    past the two Goomba pipes, you'll hit the mid way point. Shortly
    after is a red circle, head into it, the eight red coins will
    parachute from the sky to the right, so keep an eye on the sky. After
    that just to the right is a star coin behind a brick wall, if you
    still have the raccoon leaf then you can smash through it. There is a 
    pipe on the tree to the left of where the red circle is that takes
    you to a secret area, where another star coin is. Fail or succeed, once
    you fall back down, head to the right to continue, shortly after you
    fall, you will find the flag for the end.
    
    World 1-Castle 1				     **w1-c1**
    
    Time: 500 seconds
    
    So we got some creepy lookin "dry" characters.  Deal with them as you
    see fit, and head up. Eventually you'll run into a red circle.
    Collect it if you must, then if you want the star coin head left.
    If you go right, you'll be stuck and you'll have to redo the level.
    After the star coin, is the mid-point. Continuing up you'll come
    across another star coin with a "dry" piranha plant nearby. After
    the coin, there is some green moving platforms creating a circle.
    Follow them up, and there is the boss door. Well if this doesn't
    scream SNES! For those familiar with this, you know what to do. For
    those who aren't, simply hit the blocks under the triceratops. Done!
    
    
    Secret to Cannon level: Through the hole in the right side of the 
    room with the roulette coin block.
    
    World 1-4					     **w1-4**
    
    Time: 400 seconds
    
    Shortly after the start, you will find your first star coin.  Also
    our first gold ring, turning everything gold. It is only for a limited
    amount of time, so make it count. You'll eventually come to a blue
    pipe sticking out of the clouds. Head up there and to the right,
    you'll find the second star coin of the level. You'll land right next
    to the mid-point. Shortly after that you'll come across a red circle,
    use it if you want. The last coin will be on a parachute. Shortly
    after that, you'll come across four sets of bricks. These bricks have
    a hidden block between the bottom two sets.  It'll spawn a stalk, so
    climb the stalk on up, and hit the P block.  Climb up to find the
    third star coin. Once you go back down, and head right, there will be
    another gold circle. Go ahead and use it, then shortly after that
    little gold collection bit, is the end flag.
    
    World 1-5					     **w1-5**
    
    Time: 500 seconds
    
    Head all the way to the right and past the pipe to make some coins
    appear once you collect them, head down the pipe. Head to the right,
    there will be some cheep cheep swimming around a block, if you're big
    you'll get a Fire Flower, it is useful under the water. A little 
    further to the right, and you'll get a star coin. Further still is a 
    gold pipe, head in and you'll see your next star coin.  Be careful
    however, because there is a jet stream that will drag you down, it is
    do-able, but be careful.  When done head up the green pipe. You'll
    come right out next to the mid-point. Continue past the circling
    cheep cheep, and the blue follower cheep cheep. You'll see some more
    cheep cheep in a half circle, (the other half is under the screen)
    there is a little nitch in the top right, go up there to find a 
    secret spot to find the third star coin in the level. Drop down and
    continue to the right.  You'll reach a dead end, go up the pipe.
    Up and out, head right up one and then two blocks and then finally
    the flag.
    
    World 1-A					     **w1-A**
    
    Time: 500 seconds
    
    How to get here: Spend 5 Star Coins
    
    From the start head to the right, you'll see a door blocked off by
    bricks. Ground pound till you reach the bottom. You'll see a star
    coin floating there for you to take. Head out the other door and head
    into the pipe that you see. Once you're shot out continue to the
    right. You'll find another pipe that'll launch you up to a mid-point.
    From the mid-point, head back to the left, and wall jump up and over
    to the left of the green pipe. At the bottom, head to the right and
    drop down the one way hatch. At the bottom you'll find a gold circle,
    hit the Koopa to get lots of coins. Continue to the right, and you'll
    see another gold circle. Continue to the right, and you'll find yet
    another pipe to launch you. Continue to the right and head down. 
    You'll see a star coin, head to the left, but not so much the door
    bars you from getting the star coin, just enough to let the other
    door swing back up. Continue going down, you'll see two plants to
    the left, take out the closest one, and head down into the pipe.
    Upon entering you'll see a gold circle, grab the golden Koopa, and
    throw it at the plants ahead to get so much gold, then exit. When
    you exit, head to the right, you found your flag for the level.
    
    World 1-Castle 2				     **w1-c2**
    
    Time: 500 seconds
    
    You got a rope above your head, use it to shimmy to the right. Stop
    and time your movements with the stuff that falls, or comes up from
    the lava. The rope will end, there is a brick, if you're a big guy
    it'll be a leaf.  Continue right and you'll find more rope. You'll
    find a star coin, there is a small platform that will come up from
    the lava, but you better be quick, it doesn't stick around long. A
    little further to the right is a platform with a dry bones on it.
    Just past this platform is some moving ones that alternate going up
    and down.  Breeze past those, and you've got yourself a mid-point.
    After the mid-point is a one of those brick coin helmets that spew
    out more money than any one person would know what to do with. Jump
    on the rope and head right, you'll run into a thwomp so be careful.
    Past that is another, and then a rope. Use the rope to reach the 
    next platform. You'll come to another leaf if you're a big guy and a
    rope just after that.  Dodge the thwomp and once you do that, you'll
    see a huge thwomp.  Guess the other ones could have been thwimps, eh?
    Any ways, there is another star coin, and a set of blue doors. All the
    way to the right of those doors is a secret item. Head in when ready.
    First Koopaling, he'll charge you right at the beginning of the
    fight. Dodge him or jump on him if you can successfully plant one on
    him. He'll get into his shell, dodge it.  The walls will close in.
    Now if this isn't your first Mario game, then this isn't your first 
    rodeo.  Proceed as usual. If this is your first rodeo... I mean Mario
    game, then just jump on him when he pops out, and dodge the shell,
    three times. Once finished you'll get a key. Proceed to the next
    world.
    
    World 2-1					     **w2-1**
    
    Time: 500 seconds
    
    Head right, if you're big the question block will merit you a fire
    flower. About a third of the way in, you'll find a red circle. The
    coins will parachute between the right and left of where the circle
    is. A bit further will have some alternating platforms with a 
    piranha plant under then, to the right of this is the mid-point.
    After the mid-point there is a gold pipe, head in to get a gold
    flower. This turns you gold and allows you to shoot gold, continue
    to the right, you'll see a star coin, but just continue blasting
    things into gold. Go up the pipe, and come out still blingin.
    You'll have two sets of revolving platforms after you've gotten past
    those you'll have the flag and lose your bling.
    
    World 2-2					     **w2-2**
    
    Time: 500 seconds
    
    Head to the right and you'll eventually find a gold ring. You should
    already know how to use this, a little further is a star coin. You'll
    jump over a fairly large platform and then mid-point. Further to the
    right you'll jump over another large platform and a red circle is
    a little further. All the coins are doin normal coin things. There
    will be a free guy under the hammer brother. Head up when you're
    ready. Once you're at the top there will be a star coin to the left.
    All the way to the right is the flag.
    
    World 2-3					     **w2-3**
    
    Time: 500 seconds
    
    Head right and into the pipe, you're gonna want to ground pound so
    you don't get smushed by the moving wall. Continue to the right,
    grab the beetle if you must, you may need something on these 
    revolving platforms. Once all the way across You'll have a 
    trampoline and the mid-point. Get the items above you, and continue
    to the right. Try to use the beetle to the top right on the POW
    block.  It'll get rid of the bricks and open up the second pipe.
    Use the bottom of the two pipes and head left and down past all the
    piranha plants. You'll find a star coin, now head through the little
    door and into the pipe. Out the other side, grab the beetle and head
    to the top left of the block cluster, there you'll find a POW block.
    Let the beetle do its job and collect your next star coin. Shortly
    after is a red circle. Collect the coins if you want, after words,
    see the block cluster to the upper right?  Use the moving platforms
    to gain a little speed and climb up there, continue to climb and
    you'll get the third star coin. Use the green pipe that you land
    next to and it'll launch you. Once outside, run to the right and
    jump and run some more, and you'll get to the flag.
    
    World 2-A					     **w2-A**
    
    Time: 500 seconds
    
    How to get here: Spend 5 Star Coins
    
    Continue to the right, riding the platforms, eventually you'll come
    to a platform that heads to the left, hop on it and it'll bring you
    to a star coin. Ride the platform back to the right, and soon
    enough you'll come to another star coin, be ready to run and jump
    to get the star coin. Just after that is the mid-point. Continue to
    the right, and ride the platforms, once you're on a really long one,
    be ready to jump for the flag.
    
    World 2-Castle 1				     **w2-c1**
    
    Time: 600 seconds
    
    You've got some alternating platforms above you, so head up that
    way. Your first star coin is to the left. Further up there will be
    a giant dry bones and a coin block, the good kind.  Just past that
    is the mid way point. Continue going up and you have a door on the
    left. Inside that door and all the way to the top left is another
    star coin. Exit through the door. Continue your journey up, up and
    beyond to find two "dry" goombas and some not so nice spikes from
    the ceiling. You could wall hop here on the left side, and towards
    the top is... you guessed it the third star coin.  Head into those
    orange red doors. Again another SNES classic among us. Dispatch
    them quickly!
    
    World 2-Ghost House				     **w2-gh**
    
    Time: 400 seconds
    
    We have ourselves some tricky blocks in this level! You try to hit
    the block and it dodges. You'll come to a door, head in. Once
    through a giant boo that looks like it was from the Casper movies
    will appear you can look at it to keep it at bay. Pretty soon you'll
    find a star coin. After that one and just a bit further you'll be on
    a platform that requires weight to go down, go down and you'll get
    the next star coin. A bit further will result in a red circle, the
    coins do normal things, no commando coins this time. Further still
    is a really wobbly platform just after that is the door out of here.
    Head down the flight of stairs ignoring the doors, because they are
    all fake, the real door is behind the pressure platform. Once it is
    down, head in. There you have it, you found the flag.
    
    World 2-4					     **w2-4**
    
    Time: 500 seconds
    
    Head right you'll find a random block.  Hit it and take what it 
    gives you, further still is a question block with a star in it.
    If you're big, gain a little speed and hit down to get past the
    block. Just above you and to the right is a star coin. At the top
    and to the right of the pyramid is the mid-point. Continue right
    until you see two rows of coins heading down, there is a pipe there,
    head in. Out the other side and on the platform run and dash to the
    flag.
    
    World 2-B					     **w2-B**
    
    Time: 500 seconds
    
    How to get here:A little way beyond the second Star Coin you will 
    see two pillars. On the left side of the pit, there is a hidden 
    block containing a beanstalk. Climb up to find the secret exit.
    
    So, the thing to be careful about here is the commando bobombs. 
    You'll see a star coin in bricks, use the bobomb to get the coin.Just
    after that is the mid-point. Just after the mid-point, you'll see
    some cannons.  After the second one, and high into the air is a star
    coin. If you have a tail, fly up there, if not, try to gain some
    speed and jump from the cannon to a bobomb to reach it. Just after
    that there is a red circle with commando coins, just continue to the
    right, and you'll see all the coins. Just after that, you'll see
    some cannons, use the bobombs to get to the top of the flag pole.
    
    World 2-5					     **w2-5**
    
    Time: 400 seconds
    
    Head right but watch out for the bow wows, which are the main enemies
    in this level. Eventually you'll reach the mid-point. Shortly after
    the mid-point, you'll find a boomerang brother, then a red circle.
    Four of the eight are just below the platforms, the other four are
    gonna be parachuting in. Then the flag with a boomerang brother.
    
    World 2-Castle 2				     **w2-c2**
    
    Time: 500 seconds
    
    There is a "boat" waiting for you.  Hop on and it begins to move.
    You'll have some uninvited guest drop in shortly after the ride
    begins. The ride ends every time you jump.  Which is a good thing...
    Soon enough you'll see your first star coin. Then some Thwomps will
    drop straight into the lava. Mid-point. Hop on the new "boat", the
    question block you see before you contains a trampoline.  Collect it
    so you can collect the next star coin. After that coin, there is a
    red circle. Then there will be a red pipe, that pipe will contain
    the next star coin.  Once you poop out, you'll be next to the blue
    doors that contain the Koopaling.  On the far right is a secret
    item, if you need it, collect it, then head in. So this fight has
    the Koopaling surfing the arena on a giant Bow Wow. I think this
    has been done before. He can surf it under ground, so nail him when
    he comes back up. He can also go straight up off the screen.
    Instead of curling up in his little shell, the Bow Wow will get red
    and run around. Three hits and it's the end of the battle. Collect
    the key and head to the next world.

    To the right, again, just past the barrel you'll find a gold circle.
    Watch out for the cheep cheep when they jump from the water. A bit
    further and you'll see another barrel, above these three barrels is
    a star coin. Chances are, if you don't have the leaf, you're going to
    need to strategically jump onto a cheep cheep and collect the big
    coin. Just to the right of that is a platform, the block on the
    far right will have something pop out of it, smash it to have coins
    shower down from the nearby pipe. A littler further more and you will
    find the mid-point. Where the rotating platform is you can see a
    question block, once the piranha plant heads back in bounce off the
    pipe, and collect the next star coin. A little tiny bit further and
    you have another gold circle. A little bit further and you will see
    some pipes and two barrels in between these pipes. The second barrel
    has behind it the third star coin, just stand on it, and it'll lower
    itself. Another gold ring right after the third star coin. At the
    very end is a pipe hop on in, out the other side you can run and
    jump for the flag.  There are a few jumpin cheep cheep if you can't
    make it there on your own merit.

    Time: 500 seconds
    
    Head into the red pipe. Out the other side, be careful of the whirlpool.
    Soon enough you'll see a star coin in a whirlpool. Careful when
    trying to obtain it. Shortly after that, you'll see a pipe in which
    you can shoot some fireballs into. You'll see some multicolored pipes
    then the mid-point. You'll see a yellow pipe, it has a green platform
    above it moving side to side. It also has two jet streams on the
    left and right sides of it, hop in there. Inside you'll find the
    next star coin. Down in the bottom right is a pink exit pipe. After
    the exit there is a P block, hit it and collect the coins. Careful
    however, because there is three homing cheep cheep that will chase
    you, so unless you have a fire flower or two, you're going to want
    to swim to you are sick of swimming. A little further and you will
    find the third star coin. Soon after you will find the blue exit
    pipe. Jump up and to the left if you want a free guy. Then run to
    the right for the flag.

    Right away notice the poison water below you. If caught in a spider
    web, it will disappear when you jump. Use the webs to cross some of
    the levels poison waters, you'll see a red exclamation block, hit
    it and then head to the yellow pipe just to the left. Here the middle
    block has what you want.  Hit the thing that pops out, hurry to the
    left to get the first star coin, then hurry back to the safe land and
    exit via the yellow exit pipe. Soon after is the mid-point. If you
    head up from the mid-point, you'll find a red circle and four webs.
    Each web will have two of the eight red coins. Continuing to the
    right, you'll find a two spiders and some webs, and to the top right
    is a gold pipe, head in there, jump on the spider if you need help
    getting into the gold pipe. Again another timed event for that second
    star coin. If you don't have the leaf, you may want to time it just
    right with the spider to get it. Once you leave, there will be a few
    webs, that is where the third star coin is. After collecting it, head
    up, when you can't go up any more, head to the right, and you will
    find the flag.

    How to get here: Spend 5 Star Coins
    
    Head into the pipe. With the current dragging you away, you wont
    have much freedom to do things.  When the path starts to split
    stay towards the top, it'll take you to a star coin. After this you'll
    come to a pipe, head on in. Head down the little hole that's in the
    bottom left, continue to the right, you'll see a switch in the top
    and a star coin at the bottom.  Hit the switch and hurry to collect
    the star coin. Continue to the right, you'll see some cheep cheep
    circling a question block, the contents of which are a starman. Head
    up through the top, and you'll pop out next to a mid-point. Head up
    the pipe right by the mid-point. More currents, they'll push you up,
    then to the right, stay low and you'll run into a red circle. If you
    have a gold flower, head to the top, you can find a pipe that is
    blocked off with bricks. But continue to the right, you'll find
    another star coin. At the end of the ride, you'll find a pipe, head
    into it and on the exit, run to get to the flag.

    If you're big, the question block will supply you with a fire flower,
    because those are just super useful in the water. Head into the pipe
    and upon exit, head up be careful of the dry fish. You'll see some
    spiked edges, but just to the right of one of these spiked spots is
    a star coin. Shortly after that is the mid-point, just keep going up
    the middle and don't deviate from the middle. Continue going the
    only possible way, and try not to get smashed, I'm not rewriting the
    beginning of this level for you. You'll come across a red circle.
    The coins are in a jet stream, lucky you. You'll be pushed to one 
    side, simply head up (or down if you're on the left side) and let
    the jet stream push you, if you missed any coins, hurry and go up
    or down to collect the remaining coins. After all is said and done,
    there will be more spiked squishers near you. There will be a little
    reprieve in the middle till the screen catches up. When the crushers
    do their thing and retract, head on up and exit via pipe. When ready
    head into the double doors. Again, take out the triceratops the only
    way you know how.
    
    Secret to the Cannon: Near the beginning, when the giant spikes 
    appear, there are two small square blocks that move up and then 
    separate in opposite directions. As Mini Mario, follow the right 
    block and go into the small pipe. There's still a way to go to 
    reach the exit - just be careful to avoid the dry fish and make 
    your way up.

    So just after the caterpillar is a gold brick helmet and a floating
    crate. A little further still you will find a red circle. Four of
    the eight are to your left, the other four will parachute to the
    right and across the poison water. Shortly after you will find your
    first star coin. Continue till you can't go any more and go through
    the red pipe. Upon exiting you will find the mid-point. This part of
    the level you will have rising poisonous water, so keep the high
    grounds in mind. Soon enough you will see the next star coin under
    the ground, you'll want to be quick when you obtain it. Just after
    that is the third star coin, gonna have to wall jump, but jump back
    on a floaty if you don't think you can make it through before the
    poison rises back. Head above the land mass and enter into the
    green pipe, that'll bring you to the flag.

    How to get here: Instead of going up in 3-4, head down timing things
    with the poison to reach the pipe.
    
    Head to the right, and collect the mini-mushroom. Then head to the
    right and head into the yellow pipe. Continue to the right, being 
    careful to not hit anything.  You'll eventually come across a pipe
    at the top, head in. Hop on the bullet bill and when you reach the
    end just drop. You'll land next to the mid-point, head in to the
    pipe when ready. You'll see a red circle, no the coins don't do any
    thing crazy this time around. Try to hit the P-switch, it'll make
    things a little easier. Eventually you'll find an exit pipe. If you're
    looking for Star Coins head into the red pipe at the beginning instead
    of the yellow one.

    More of them tricky blocks, continue to the right. When your 
    entourage is done taking you over the cliff, head into the door.
    Hop on the platform and ride it up, don't jump to the next one
    just yet there is a star coin at the apex of this ride. Then once
    you come to the next platform jump to it, and do the same for the
    last one.  The last one will take you up to a set of doors, head
    into the top one. With two platforms and a red circle, the platforms
    will stay next to each other till the walls expand, so too will the
    coins. The last coin you're going to have to take a leap of faith
    to obtain. Head into the door, upon exiting you have platforms with
    some ghost who may or may not love you. They will take you up to
    the top, you can find a couple of doors and the next star coin. The
    door we want is directly to the right of the star coin. Once you
    go through the door, you will be on some platforms, take the biggest
    one straight to the top it will have a door there. Once out side
    do the Mario thing and get to the top of the flag pole.

    Head to the pipe and head in. If you're lucky enough to have a
    golden flower, blast the bricks above the pink pipe and head in. If
    not, don't worry about it, you're not losing out of the star coin.
    Continue until you have to go up at an angle, be careful of the 
    rolling boulder. You'll see a star coin, continue till you see a 
    boulder coming at you, it'll smash through the wall so you can have
    your precious. If you hit the P block follow the coins. Where they
    end you'll see a yellow pipe, head in. You'll find the next big
    coin, but it moves away from you.  It doesn't like you. But you have
    to deal with the bloopers then it'll stop after the long line of
    pipes. Head up the yellow exit pipe. Mid-point to the left, after
    you hit it, run to the right you'll see a red circle, the coins
    here swim, so have fun with that. Continue on up you'll be chased
    by a few bloopers, take them out if you have the means too, if not
    continue till you see some boulders, that'll take care of your
    problem. But the giant one will also open up the last star coin for
    you. Continue till you get to the yellow exit pipe. You have found
    the flag for this level.

    So, head to the right, watch out for the saw blades that are jutting
    out of every spot. Once you've reached the end, head up.  You'll
    find a star coin to the left, timing is everything.  Continue going
    up and you'll find a door, head in. Mid-point. Continue to the right
    and a giant buzz saw will begin to chase you.  Dodge it, after that
    little fiasco is the second star coin. A little bit further and you
    have to deal with a few more saw blades, you're going to have to be
    quick and nimble to get past them, leaves help. After you get past
    those you'll see the blue double doors. So this Koopaling brings
    the levels suggestive theme to the battle, water. She'll whistle
    and the water level will rise. Avoid her while the water is this
    high. Cheep Cheep will go from one pipe to the other. Then the water
    level will lower. She may whistle and some more cheep cheep can 
    appear. But with the water level this low, try to hit her. Three
    times. After that collect the key and proceed to world 4.

    Yes the tiny goombas will hinder progress. So don't let them get on
    you. If you get one on you just jump repeatedly. Dodge the rolling
    boulders there is an indent in the ground for the second one, if
    you are a little on the slow side, you could make use if this handy
    dandy bunker. Continuing we have a star coin, and a rope.  If you're
    not gutsy then shimmy across the rope and ignore the star coin. A 
    tad bit further and you have a boulder taking out your foes, eat 
    that! After that you have the mid-point. To the top right, you have 
    a star coin. You'll see two question blocks, stay on them tll the 
    boulder comes past you. As you head up, there will be more boulders
    coming down. Dodge them by use the platforms, at the top of the 
    mountain and to the top left is a small secret tunnel with the 
    third star coin. To the right is where there is a gold circle. Hit
    one of the turtles and let er rip. Slide down the hill after it, so
    that way when it hits the dead end it's not going to hurt you. Stay
    till the boulder passes and continue to the flag.

    Right away you see a star coin, but you can't get it just yet, a
    little further down you'll see some bricks you can ground pound
    through. Then head left to obtain the coin. Continue to the right
    and you'll come across a red circle. The coins don't do anything
    special. Stay on the low end, and head into the green pipe, right
    next to the blue one. You'll be launched, once you're done here,
    head down and you'll land next to the mid-point. A bit further and
    you'll see a pipe in the sky, run on the platform below it and
    jump to obtain a star coin. Just past this, you'll see a question
    block and a brick, out pops a mini-mushroom, chase after it because
    you'll eventually see that to obtain the last star coin of this
    level, you're going to need it. Just after that is the flag.

    Go to the right and ignore the first door you see, instead head up
    the stairs to find a second door, that's the one to use. Head down
    and quickly jump back up, silly boos tricks are for kids! As the
    wall begins to separate hurry down the stairs, at the bottom, the
    first door you see is a fake you'll see two question blocks, jump
    on them and then jump up and to the left, since this whole shin dig
    is now moving to the right. You'll find the first star coin. Head
    back down, and the scene will go to the left again, so you'll find
    a red circle, collect the coins and then you'll get an arrow going
    down, do as it suggests. Once you've reached the bottom, follow it
    to the right, you'll find a blue P block, hit it. Follow the coins,
    if you hurry and scale the floors, you'll get the second star coin.
    Continue to scale the floors and you will come to a door. That is
    your exit. Get up to the flag pole.

    How to get here: When the screen goes back to the left and then 
    starts going right again, you'll see two ?-Blocks. Jump off to 
    the right as the wall pushes you, and wall-kick up to reach the 
    hidden door above.
    
    Head into the near by pipe. You'll eventually see a star coin. To get
    it, just climb over it, then follow the little glowy enemies. A little
    further, and you'll find a red circle, four coins are stationary, the
    other four will parachute on in. Just after that is the mid-point.
    Take the first pipe you see for some extra coins. Other wise, continue
    to the right where you'll see some bricks going down, ground pound
    them and slide down, you'll come to a stop, and above you will be a
    star coin. Head up then to the right you'll see a star coin, just
    wait on the donut till it drops, then quickly hop off once you have 
    the coin. Just after that is a pipe to which you can leave the area.
    You found the flag for the area.

    Well continue to the right, and before you know it you'll find the
    first star coin. Further still past many many piranha plant pipes,
    you will see a set of piranha plant pipes that point down with some
    coins between them going vertically (thats up and down for those of
    you who don't know what that means), there is a free guy up there,
    just wall/pipe jump up there. Then just to the right you'll find
    the mid-point. Jump over the tall pipe then there will be a small
    one take out the plant inside, then head inside. Hit the beetle and
    send it on its way, follow it, and be quick, otherwise you'll
    botch up your attempt to get the next star coin. But if you're 
    skilled in the Mario way, you can wall jump to get it. Out the other
    side of the exit pipe, there is a gold circle to the right. After
    you've gotten a bit more richer, there will be some pipes with
    piranha plants in them, take them out, or just hop over them, you'll
    see the third star coin for the level. Just after that is the flag
    for the level.

    You have a platform below you rising, let it take you up. Eventually
    it will reach a point of no return, and a "dry" piranha plant will
    ride with you, no one rides for free... just above you will be a
    beetle, hit it and throw it at the free loader. Before you get rid
    of it, there will be two more dry piranha plants, use it to dispatch
    them and collect the star coin. You'll eventually make it to a door
    head inside. Mid-point! Enter the other door, and another platform
    will appear below you it too will make you rise. You have a fireball
    pipe to the left, then another to the right. You'll have a beetle
    to work with. Collect it, and wait for the dry plants to show up,
    take em out with the beetle. You can collect another star coin. At
    top of the ride is another door, head in. Jump in the portal and
    be launched higher than Syria's space program, which is non
    existent as of the writing of this, and head into the double doors.
    A set of rotating platforms this time, easy peasy, take them out.

    How to get here: Enter the pipe to the left of the Giant Dry Piranha 
    Plant near the end of the stage. Wait for the Dry Piranha Plant to 
    retreat, or use the Starman (collected by throwing fireballs into 
    the right-hand pipe halfway up) to destroy it before climbing inside. 
    Go up the pipe in the next room to find yourself at the secret flag.
    
    Follow the coins down the rabbit hole, Alice. Hit the POW blocks
    along the way, you'll come to one with a track above it, in a half
    circle, don't hit the POW blocks here yet, get the star coin above
    them. Just past this is the mid-point. Continue to the right and up
    the platforms, but move left, you'll see a giant one of them black
    critters, just past him is a pipe. Inside is a star coin, once you
    have obtained it, head through the pipe on the right. You'll land
    right next to the big ugly mother heffer, continue to the right
    taking whatever platforms you need to take. Eventually you'll have
    to go up, then head to the right. Instead of going to the pipe that 
    you see, wait for the big ugly on the right to go into the left hole.
    Then climb up the wall on the right to obtain a star coin. Then head
    back down and into the pipe. You've found the flag.

    Just to the right of the starting point there is a gold circle.
    slide down the hill till you stop, you'll find a star coin. Just
    after that is a red circle, the coins will parachute in. After the
    coin brigade, is the mid-point. Just after that you'll find the
    second star coin. Climb up the slippery icy platforms, once at the
    top you'll find a P block, hit it and coins appear, slide down the
    slippery slide, and jump to the first land mass you see to the
    right, as it is the only way to obtain the third star coin. Once
    down on solid ground, there will be a giant piranha plant, take it
    out or jump over it, and climb the ice sculpture and get to the
    flag.

    place by the equal one, and a bunch of coins going in a vertical
    line. Ride the right one down and jump up to the left one as
    quickly as possible to obtain a star coin. Continue to the right and
    you'll run into a gold circle yet again. You will then continue to
    the right and you will find your mid-point. Shortly thereafter, you
    will find a red circle, the coins won't do anything fancy, but you'll
    need to do some fany thumb dancing to get all the coins. You'll find
    another balance bit just after this, and you can see more platforms
    above it, head up there and you'll find another star coin. Continue
    to the right, and use the balance platforms to get up to the flag.

    First off, I'd like to suggest a fire flower here if you can. Head 
    into the pipe, and take out the giant follower fish. Stay towards
    the top, and you'll see a gold pipe, head in. You'll find the first
    star coin here, jump in the air and ground pound above it, it'll
    make you sink a bit further to obtain the golden precious. Upon 
    exiting, head right, past the follower fish who will try to eat you,
    and the coin box to find a mid-point. Head up at the split to find
    a red circle, the coins are in a line, pretty hard to mess that up.
    Except the last one doesn't like you and tries to swim away. Is it
    worth chasing?  Well is it? Head down when you're done giving the
    last coin a hard time. You will see your next star coin, get it.
    What's that?  You can't?  Go a little further to the right and head
    up.  Then swing down to grab it, ignore the question blocks. Go 
    back to the top and out to the question blocks, get the star and
    head to the right. Once at the end, head up the green pipe. Run to
    the right and get that flag.

    Head to the right, avoiding the boulders, you will come to a point
    where you can see moving platforms above you and they will drop
    boulders, so be careful and time it out. You'll see a star coin, 
    after obtaining it continue to the right where you will see a 
    boulder being pushed up from the pit. Avoid the boulder and the
    revolving fire poles. Because it's mid-point after that. You have 
    some giant and small boulders, watch out. Another of the star coins
    is down by a giant boulder. Go a bit further past the boulders that
    fall from the sky and just past the revolving fire pole is a red
    pipe, head in. Inside you have to be fairly quick to dodge the
    boulders and get the third star coin. Once done, and you haven't
    died, drop down and head through the green exit pipe. You'll have to
    deal with more giant boulders, so don't go running like you don't
    have a care in the world in this next part, dodge, and time it.
    Once you're past the boulders is the double blue doors and a secret
    item on the right by the wall. Collect it if you want, and then
    go through the doors. He was my favorite in SMB3, anyone remember
    that one?  One of the best in my opinion. Any ways, this Koopaling
    will materialize boulders from his wand, dodge 'em, jump and hit him.
    He will go down to the bottom then off screen, where he will come
    out of a pipe at the top of the level. Rinse and repeat. Collect 
    the key and proceed to the next world.

    and get the star coin. Just to the right of this spot is a gold
    circle. Then the mid-point. After that is the next star coin, 
    surrounded by ropes. To the right of that you have a red circle.
    The coins rotate around the two tight ropes above it. A little
    further is a gold circle between two tight ropes. And then the flag
    to signify the end of the level.

    Time: 500 seconds
    
    When you begin to move towards the stage's exit, you will be visited
    by the Lakitu, you know, they throw the spinies. But by continuing
    to the right, you'll find a gold circle, it'll make it so instead of
    spinies they will through lovely coins at you, as if they love you.
    Either take this opportunity to get as close to the exit as 
    possible, or collect the coins they toss at you. You'll eventually
    come to a star coin, and a gold circle above it. Just past these
    objects of interest is two sets of question blocks, in the blank
    space between them, is a star. Make your enemies fear you. Soon 
    after is the mid-point on a rainbow road. Continue on, and you'll
    find another gold circle. The only way you'll really be able to get
    it is by killin a Lakitu and using it's cloud. Further down the road
    is a red circle, the coins parachute in. You should continue to the
    right and you will find the end.

    Time: 500 seconds
    
    Jump into the nearby pipe and it will launch you up into the sky.
    This is how Super Mario Galaxy begins... no not really. Any ways,
    there will be a gold circle upon arrival. Hit the turtle and slide 
    after it. Jump to the next land mass, and you'll see another gold
    circle. Once you've gone through, slide down till you hit the mid
    point. You're going to want to go down the third pipe for the star
    coin. Then head into the second pipe to be launched higher. You're
    going to need some mad jumping skills here, I know it looks too far,
    but it really is do-able. Once you've reached the big pipe, get in
    and it'll launch you. Once you land, you can then get into the other
    pipe and launch over the spike strip.  There you will find a gold
    circle. Launch the turtle and slide after it. I know you seen it, we
    will get to it. Once at the end of the fun ride, hop not one, not
    two, but three pipes and take it.  You'll be launched to the just
    seen star coin. Then finish going across the pipes to get to the
    flag.
    
    World 5-Ghost House				     **w5-gh**
    
    Time: 400 Seconds
    
    How to get here: Above and to the right of the third Star Coin, 
    you'll find a rope. Right in the middle of those coins you'll find 
    a hidden beanstalk by jumping up. Climb it and  continue to the 
    right to find the route to the secret flag.
    
    Climb up and to the right, stay up high. When you reach the end where
    there is a door, you can jump down and get the star coin, then climb
    back up to the door. Continue to the right, ignore the first rope
    you see, nothing good up that way, up the second one you will find
    a star coin. Head back down, then up the next rope you see, you'll
    find some stairs on the right, climb them to obtain the third star
    coin of the level. For a free guy, after you follow the coins from
    the last star coin, climb down the rope, climb up the next one and
    you'll find some coins, hit the invisible block right by the window.
    Climb down and to the right, you'll find a door, head in. You'll see
    a big boo to the right, above the platform is some hidden blocks, hit
    them and climb up them to find a door. This door leads to the flag
    of the level.
    
    World 5-A					     **w5-A**
    
    Time: 500 seconds
    
    How to get here: When the second pendulum swings to the right, jump
    as high as you can to hit a secret beanstalk. The beanstalk is 
    directly below the opening in the ceiling. Alternatively, use 
    Raccoon Mario and fly up. Head right from there, and when you reach
    the large Boo, open the door to the upper-right. Climb the pole and
    swing on the rope to reach the flag.
    
    You're on a boat you land lubber, soon after starting there is a
    gold circle. Save the Koopa for after you get the circle, lots of
    coins to obtain. Toss him to the deck. A little further is another
    gold circle. You'll come across a third gold circle. After the circle
    you'll find a star coin. After the star coin is a fourth gold circle.
    Just after that, you'll find the mid-point, and another gold circle
    just above it. You'll come across a fifth gold circle on a small
    platform, stay up there because another star coin is two platforms
    away. Stay up there to obtain a sixth gold circle. Just above the
    flyin Koopa is a seventh gold circle. Shortly after that is the third
    star coin. After that is an eighth gold circle. The ride will come
    to an end at the flag of the level. To get to a secret area that
    will bypass all the levels up to the castle, use the trampoline on 
    the ground and hit the bricks to make a bean stalk appear. Use the
    trampoline to get back up where the bean stalk is, and climb it.
    Then head right and jump gracefully till you reach the end.

    Time: 500 seconds
    
    Use the music notes to reach the grate then head through the door.
    So if you weren't motivated enough before, you should be now, you
    have magma rising below you. Climb the platforms up the grates watch
    out for the torches from the sides. Once on the big grate on the
    left side, you can ride it straight up. There will be a star coin on
    the left. It will rotate so be prepared to move. After the star coin
    there will be a red circle, you can attempt to get it if you'd like.
    But that magma is catching up fast! But once past the torch, you can
    stick to the left and climb up the grating to reach a solid platform
    which holds a door, head through, once through there is the mid
    point. Then exit the room via door dos (two) on the right. Magma
    will begin to rise, so you're going to want to be quick, just watch
    out for the torches. Eventually you'll come to a grate, hold on for
    the ride of your life. You'll have to hop off once you get close to
    some spikes, but hurry to the top, and you may be able to get
    another star coin that is to the right. That magma is back again,
    besides that minor detail, head to the left of the moving grate and
    at just above that torch you see is the third star coin. The
    platforms merge again, and the door you seek is before you. Take out
    them pesky triceratops.

    This level has moving mushroom platforms. You land on one, and it
    either shrinks or grows. But about a fourth of the way in, you'll
    find a gold circle. Past some koopas and some of those mushroom
    platforms you'll find some solid ground, where you'll find a star
    coin. A little further you'll find the mid way point. More to the
    right you'll find a red circle, the coins parachute in. After they
    slowly fall away from you, there is another star coin. Then keep
    heading to the right where you will find some mushroom platforms
    and some parakoopas, if you have enough speed you can make it to the
    top of the flag pole.

    Climb up to the platform at the top, and jump into the red pipe. 
    Head to the right, and be careful of the bullet bills. After about
    the fourth cannon you'll find the mid way point. Two more cannons
    later you can find a red circle. By the time you see the giant
    bullet bill you be able to get another star coin. But after the
    giant bill, you will find the flag pole

    Time: 400 seconds
    
    So from the start you see some coins going down, proceed to follow.
    Hit the koopa and make him hit all of his friends. Once you head
    down you will see a rotating platform, continue to fall. There will
    be a red circle, nothing fancy. Go to the right, and down, there
    will be more moving platforms. Continue going to the right, you will
    find the mid-point. Continue to the right, eventually you'll come to
    a classic SMB revolving platform.  Carefully move it to the right.
    Avoid the gapping jaws of giant piranha plants. Once you can get off
    there will be another star coin. Head up the pipes and that will be
    where this level ends.
    
    World 5-Castle 2				     **w5-c2**
    
    Time: 600 seconds
    
    You're going to have to skillfully wall jump to get up on this 
    platform here on the right, if you have a leaf, you can gain
    momentum and fly up to it. Careful when you reach the next moving
    grate, as there will be spikes you have to jump over and then latch
    onto the moving grate again. At the end of the ride you have the
    mid-point. There is a star coin at the bottom with a protruding
    grate that you can latch too. When ready head on over to the moving
    grate. There is a red circle here too, none of the coins are freaky.
    At the end of the ride continue moving to the right. You'll find
    another moving grate which will head into the lava, but not before
    letting you have a chance at the star coin. Hop up to the smaller
    moving grate and take that till you can jump to a solid platform.
    Head all the way to the right, past the double doors and collect the
    secret item, which shouldn't be so secret by now, then head through
    the double doors. You will see some dry piranha plants and a pipe.
    Head into the pipe and shoot yourself Donkey Kong style up through
    them. So our Koopaling this time jumps on the chains above, which
    is where he will shoot you from, you pick the pipe under him and
    launch yourself up and make him fall off. Club him the only way
    Mario knows how too, rinse and repeat. Although his last hit, if 
    you let him get back up into the rafters, may be a little tougher.
    Timing is key. Once defeated collect your key.

    Time: 500 seconds
    
    So this time around we have rocks falling. Dodge them and continue
    to the right, or use the environment to your advantage, by standing
    under bricks. About a third of the way through you'll find a star
    coin. Shortly after you will find a red circle. Some are stationary
    others are crazy for parachuting in this madness. Use the beetle on
    the next platform on the POW block to claim a free guy, then get
    over to the mid-point. Hit the question block button to get the
    platforms appearing, so you are technically on the games time now.
    Just dodge the incoming rocks. You'll eventually come up on the next
    star coin. Keep going and you will find the flag pole.

    Hitting the switch will cause the platform to move to the left, to
    reveal some coins. Head to the right, and hit the switch to get the
    platform to fall. Then head right through the one way, and climb up
    to get the first star coin. Once back down to the bottom, go through
    the door on the right. Here we have a fairly large Boo just sitting
    there, hurry to the right and enter the door, you'll pop out under
    the door you went in, hit the switch and follow the arrow to the
    left. Once all the way back don't go through the door, instead make
    the boo fly away from the switch, hit it, and climb the stairs that
    appear.  Head through the door, and collect the star coin, then head
    up to the platform that you just fell from. Hit the switch and then
    go through the door to the right. Just climb till you get to the
    flag.

    Time: 300 seconds
    
    How to get here: When you get the third Star Coin, keep wall-kicking
    upwards. You'll eventually reach another door. Go through that to 
    find the hidden flag.
    
    Head towards the pipe and head in. You'll fall and die, game over.
    No, but you should.  Continue to the right, and you'll find a star
    coin at the top, continuing you'll find another star coin. Continue
    to the right, you'll eventually find a red pipe to go in. You found

    Time: 500 seconds
    
    Collect the coins and fall down into the hole. You will now be on a
    moving boat that alternates. Shortly after starting this little ride
    you can jump up and grab a trampoline.  Soon after that you will 
    have the tiny goombas all over you but there is a star coin just to
    the right of that little goomba cage. Collect the trampoline when
    the ride is done and position it just under the hole, hop up there
    and get into the red pipe. There is a gold circle here, and a few
    POW blocks.  Go through the circle and hit the POW blocks when the
    piranha plants pop out. This will turn them into gold coins to
    collect. When done, head through the pipe, when outside of the pipe,
    go to the mid-point. Jump down to the little boat, and let the
    current take you where you need to go. Eventually it'll take you to
    a star coin surrounded by bricks. Once the ride stops, the magma
    starts rising. Grab a bobomb and throw it at the star coin incased
    in the rock wall to the left. Shortly after that, you'll see a green
    pipe on the left, head up there. Now head to the right, and up the
    flag pole.

    find a solid platform, just south east of it is a star coin. You'll
    come to the end of the screen with a pipe, head in. Upon exiting,
    you'll find the mid-point. Hop on the moving platform, and you'll
    eventually find a red circle. Just past the red circle is another

    Time: 500 seconds
    
    Jump into the very emphasized pipe, continue to the right, but be
    careful, because the mushroom platforms grow, and shrink, which may
    make things a bit tougher. After you see one of the Flame Brothers,
    there will be a star coin, you should be able to stand on the
    mushroom and duck to obtain the coin. After that, you'll find the
    mid-point. Just after the mid-point, you'll find a red circle. The
    coins will parachute in. You will eventually come up to a yellow
    pipe next to a fire brother, go inside it. Inside, you have two fire
    brothers, a star coin, and a gold circle.  Get the gold circle, and
    those fire brothers will throw gold coins. When done, head through
    the exit pipe on the right. Upon exiting the pipe you will find
    another gold circle.  When ready head to the right, and go inside

    You can put the torch out by hitting one on the bottom. Head on up
    stay in the middle of the two torches, head further up. Hit either 
    the left one, or the right one and continue to go up. You will see
    a row of four torches, two more ot the right, take them all out.
    Hurry back to the left and scramble to the right to get a star coin.
    Hop on the platform and work your way up, avoid the fire. You'll 
    come to a platform, hop up there and get to the mid-point. Hop on
    the platform and continue to move up, extinguishing torches as you
    head on up. Duck at the triple torch, you'll live. At the end of 
    the ride, you'll see your double doors. Eliminate the triceratops.

    Head right once you're done with that. You'll have boos moving
    platforms around, so be careful when moving about.  Eventually 
    you'll reach the mid way point. Just after the mid-point is a red 
    circle, all the coins are stationary. Soon after that, you'll find 
    another start coin, gonna have to wall jump for that one. Then 
    you'll reach a boo that will control your only mode of 
    transportation.  Just stay with it, and eventually you'll come to 
    the flag.

    This level is loaded with Bowser statues that will shoot fireballs.
    So be careful with those. Traverse across the rocking platforms, 
    dodging all along the way.  Eventually you'll reach the mid-point.
    Soon after you'll see a star coin. Get the boulder to roll to the
    left to get it to smash below and get the coin. Shortly after there
    will be another star coin between two boulders. Simply either make
    them both go to the left, or, if you're really skilled, make the
    bottom platform raise enough that you can jump up between the two.
    After that, there will be four Bowser statues, only two of them
    fire at you. Time it just right and climb up till you can jump to
    the flag post.
    
    World 6-Bowser's Castle				     **w6-bc**
    
    Time: 700 seconds
    
    This is it, the big guy. Let's do this. You'll come up to a torch
    below moving back and forth, be careful with it. Dodge the lava
    things. Keep going and eventually you'll have to go up. So do so,
    but watch out for the torches.  There is a coin helmet to the right
    after you get all the coins out. Once at the top, head to the right
    where you just have to dodge some torches. At the end is a door, 
    head in. Here, hop on to the green platform, and head on up with it,
    there is magma that rises so be careful. You'll reach another door,
    head in. Mid-point, you'll see the Koopalings in the background
    on Bowser's clown-copter, keep moving forward, but when you see the
    clown-copter's eyes glowing fast, get behind a wall. Eventually you
    will come to another star coin. If you're un sure about how to get
    it, just stand on the donut at the top (middle or right preferably)
    and let it fall, get back on the platform  to the left, and wait
    for the Koopalings to do their thing. Hit the P switch and then run
    and collect the coins.  Run to the giant green double doors, no
    secret this time! Head in.  Mid-point, head right. Eventually you'll
    start to ascend, dodge the fireballs SMB3 style, and you will be
    stuck in a room with Bowser himself. He'll be able to throw some
    spiked hammers at you, and shoot fireballs, but what we want is for
    him to jump so you can hit the switch. Too easy? Yeah, I thought so
    too. Climb the platforms heading up. The Koopalings show up, and
    they do some SNES stuff, Bowser comes back as a giant. Continue to
    climb platforms till you reach a solid one, dodge his attacks, watch
    his eyes, that's where he'll strike next. Once on the solid ground
    he'll shoot fire at you, dodge it by wall jumping off the nearby
    wall. After he fails to toast you, he'll roar and make the magma 
    rise even higher, so jump from platform to platform avoiding his
    attacks, only this time you also have to dodge some Bowser statues
    that shoot fire, have fun. Eventually you'll come to another solid
    platform, he'll blow fire at you again... twice. Then he'll roar,
    and the magma will rise. Same thing, only slightly different. The
    Bowser statues will shoot blue flames which can make slight
    movements. After that hit the giant switch at the top of the solid
    platform. Watch the stuff that transpires after all of this.
    
    You'll unlock new worlds, lets go deal with them now.

    it to the mid point. Just past the mid point is a gold circle. So
    hit the koopa and make it go and hit the other enemies below you.
    Just after that, you'll find a red circle and a yellow pipe.  Head
    down the pipe. Before you do anything rash... the question block on
    the right has a gold flower, collect it, and turn those bricks into
    gold you Midas you. As you fall, you'll find a star coin. Once you're
    satisfied with how things went, head on up through the exit pipe on
    the right. When out, just a head a bit further to the right, and you
    have your flag for the level.

    Head into the pipe. Again, it is a water level so you may want to
    have a fire flower at the ready. About a quater of the way through
    you'll come across a star coin. But you need to go straight for it
    other wise it'll get blocked off and you wont be able to get ahold of
    it, not with out a chance of being smooshed. Continue going to the
    right and up and you'll eventually make it to the mid-point. Just after
    the mid point is a red circle. All the coins are stationary, so just
    be quick about it. Coninuing you'll see the puffers kinda behind some
    moving platforms, they will fall or rise, when you get close enough
    to them.  Behind the top one you'll find another star coin. Soon
    after all that nonsense with the puffer enemies, you'll find a pipe
    going up, head in there and head towards the flag.

    and above the star coin is a fire pipe. Fill 'er up with fire balls
    if you have em. Further to the right, is a switch, stand on the
    donut and it'll fall beneith you landing you on the switch. The pipe
    to the right will spew coins, then it'll go to the left one, and
    alternate back and forth and end on the right one. A littler further
    you'll see a beetle, you can have it hit the blocks there, and then
    collect it to hit the POW block right by the pipe. Exit through the
    pipe when ready. As soon as you exit, you'll see the mid point, and
    a POW block, exit on the right when ready. You'll notice another star
    coin within your first few steps. Just get on the platforms that are
    going down and jump till you can get to it.  But hurry, the screen
    is rushing you. Continue to the right, you'll see some beetles, use
    the top one to hit the POW block for another star coin. Continuing
    on from there, ground pound the next POW block you see, then wait
    for the earth to move.  You'll see another fire pipe, fill 'er up,

    Thwomps. You can ground pound after the Giant Thwomp for a star coin.
    You'll see a pipe after all this stuff, don't go in just yet, further
    to the right you'll find another star coin. Once in and out of the
    pipe, you'll find a mid-point, nail it, then go into the pipe. We
    have another wave of destruction coming from the left, so run to the
    right be careful, also be careful on the rotating brick platforms.
    Past all this crap and the dry critters, you'll find the blue double
    doors.  If you can fly, gain speed and fly out to the left and up.
    You'll find a suprise. Then head into the blue double doors. Darn
    Koopalings... you'll fight another, the arena has alternating platforms
    that go up (floor) and down (ceiling), just be cautious, and hit him
    when you get the chance. Three times, like before, and you can get the

    platforms coming out of the the pipe at the top.  Wait for the
    opportune moment to hop on.  Ride it, be be on the edge, you'll find
    another star coin at the top by the pipe.  Just after that is the
    mid-point. Continue to the right where you'll find a few moving

    start moving. You'll find your first star coin soon after it starts
    moving. You'll be able to head up if you pay attention, once up top,
    you'll find a butt load of gold coins, when ready, head to the right

    you are above the star coin, because you're going to fall straight
    down into water. Head to the right, and you will see a hallway with
    coins, follow the coins. A giant boo will appear and follow you.

    circle, and then a Lakitu pops out. Take him out, then you can ride
    his pimped out cloud.  Ride it up and you'll get a star coin. Just
    after that you'll find the mid-point, and after that is a red circle.
    All the coins are stationary, but there is a Lakitu seeking revenge.
    Steal his cloud and head into the yellow pipe just below the rainbow
    platform. Boom, another star coin. Upon exiting, just follow the
    shrooms, don't bounce too high, you'll find another Lakitu and a
    star coin. Steal his ride and collect it. Who said stealing wasn't
    profitable? Further to the right is none other than the flag to

    coin, is the mid-point. Use the moving platform and head to the right,
    be careful to not touch the poison. At the next spot where you see
    the moving platform, you can go up, but if you do, you'll miss out on
    a star coin, which can only be accessed from the bottom. Just after
    that is a red circle.  Use the vine to collect the coins, and jump
    off towards the right to obtain the last few. Soon you'll see a vine

    you'll see some spiders. After they drop, the second one has a star

    Them darn brats are back, so take cover when they start to do their
    little game on you. There is some wall to take cover behind as you
    shimmy across the rope. You'll find a star coin soon enough, but be
    quick about obtaining it. Take cover in the little alcove till the
    Koopalings flash the screen, then hop down and continue to the right.
    You'll see some saws, and a cover spot, below this spot is another
    star coin.  Take cover, hop down on the left, climb back up from the
    left, and take cover again. They will fly away after this bit, that's
    assuming you are still heading right... if not they're stickin around
    and you should just stop.  You'll come to a door, head in. Guess what?
    You found the mid-point! Continue to the right past all the jumping
    saws and you will find a door, head in. The kids are back, keep
    moving to the right, while taking cover as they light up your life.
    On the moving platform, you'll see a large wall which you can take
    cover on, but just past that a star coin will appear, but you have to
    be quick, because this gravy train waits for no one. Eventually
    after getting on two more trains, you'll find the giant double doors.
    Look familiar, don't they? headi in side. Mid-point, head right.
    Climb up, then dodge the fire balls. And so, we reach Dry Bowser,
    apparently the Koopalings brought him back to finish you off. Wait 
    for the opportune moment to run beneith him and hit the switch. Is 
    he done for yet?  No. Climb up the platforms and head to the next 
    area. This is just a rehash of the last time you challeneged him.
    Just keep climbing. His eyes will turn blue when he is ready to swing
    at you. So if you don't remember how to beat Bowser, just go take a 
    look, go ahead, I'll wait. Congradulations, you won... again.
    Although, that is one of the weakest Bowser/Dry Bowser fights in the
    series. Both of them.
