       Game: Super Mario Sunshine
    Version: US Version
     System: Nintendo GameCube
      Genre: Platformer
    Players: 1 Player
    
    OK...
    Now that my Final Fantasy X stat ubering urge has died down,
    and the appeal of Warcraft III is loosing it's hold of me,
    I now am fully focused on Super Mario Sunshine (US Version).
    
    My goal for this guide is to document
    "How to obtain all of the Shines"
    in the game: Super Mario Sunshine (US Version)
    
    I have tried to make this guide as "spoiler free" as possible.
    
    One day, I plan on documenting where ALL the Blue Coins are located
    and how to get them.  This will take some time to document.
    
    This is a living guide and will be updated many times.
    I would like this guide to become a "High Level of Play" document
    with the most detailed Table of Contents possible.
    Not just a "How to beat the game" guide.
    
    Enjoy!

     ====================================================================
     2 - Tips, Tactics, Techniques, and Trivia
     ====================================================================
    
     In this section, I go over gameplay elements and questions that may
     come to mind.
    
        ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
        2.A - Introducing, the Residents of Isle Delfino
        ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
    
        You will find two new creatures on the Isle of Delfino, never before
        seen in a Mario game.  The first is the "Pianta" creatures.  They
        are the big pudgy creatures, and dress much like Hawaiians.  You
        will  encounter the Pianta creatures right away, in the game, on the
        Delfino Airstrip.  Next, is the "Noki" creatures.  They are smaller
        then the Piantas and usually dress in sea-shell attire.
    
        ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
        2.B - What Are All the Different Nozzles, that I Can Use? 
        ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
    
        There is the 2 standard nozzles, one is the Spray Nozzle the other
        is the Hover Nozzle.  The Spray Nozzle is Mario's main weapon and
        cleaning tool, while the Hover Nozzle is used for making jumps
        easier as well as getting extra length on them too.  Then there is 2
        other nozzles you will find later on in Mario's adventure.  One is
        the Turbo Nozzle for propelling Mario across the ground faster, and
        the other is the Rocket Nozzle for blasting off Mario up into the
        sky above.
    
        ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
        2.C - Useful Nozzle Tricks
        ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
    
        In this Section I'll go over some tricks for Mario's Nozzles that
        may not be apparent at first.
    
           --------------------------------------------------------------------
           2.C.01 - Speed Swimming
           --------------------------------------------------------------------
    
           When in water, you can make Mario swim a little faster by selecting
           FLUDD's Hover Attachment and holding down the R TRIGGER while you
           tap the A BUTTON.  After about 4 to 5 seconds, release the R TRIGGER
           and then quickly press and hold it back in, all the while tapping
           the A BUTTON.  Repeat all steps as necessary.  If you have the Turbo
           Nozzle, swimming in this manner is definitely not necessary.
    
           --------------------------------------------------------------------
           2.C.02 - Spin 'N' Spray
           --------------------------------------------------------------------
    
           This is useful for a few things in Super Mario Sunshine.  Chose the
           Spray Nozzle, then spin the control stick around in a 360 rotation
           and tap in the R TRIGGER.  You can add a jump to this technique too.
    
           --------------------------------------------------------------------
           2.C.03 - Rocket Blasting from within the Water
           --------------------------------------------------------------------
    
           If you need to use the Rocket Nozzle, and Mario is in a body of
           water, then this is what you have to do.  Charge the FLUDD until the
           Rocket Blast is almost ready to engage, then quickly press and hold
           the A BUTTON.
    
           --------------------------------------------------------------------
           2.C.04 - Spread Spraying
           --------------------------------------------------------------------
    
           Click the R TRIGGER, all of the way in.  Then press the A BUTTON.
           This will make Mario do a back-flip and his Spray will go into a 
           big Spread.  Not too useful, but can help to clean-up faster.
    
        ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
        2.D - What's the Deal with the Colored Coins?
        ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
    
        Get any color of coin to gain some Life on your Life Meter.
    
           --------------------------------------------------------------------
           2.D.01 - Gold Coins
           --------------------------------------------------------------------
    
           If you can acquire 100 Gold Coins in any level you will get a Shine
           for your effort.
           It's easier to get 100 Gold Coins in some Episodes then in others.
    
           NOTE: You will NOT get a Shine for acquiring 100 Gold Coins in 
           Ricco Harbor's Episode 2, if you have already gotten the Shine
           for acquiring 100 Gold Coins in Ricco Harbor's Episode 4.
    
           Also, acquire 50 Gold Coins to score a 1-UP!
    
           --------------------------------------------------------------------
           2.D.02 - Blue Coins
           --------------------------------------------------------------------
    
           The only use for Blue Coins is to buy Shines with them, at the
           Boathouse.  This is the building with the "M" Teleport to the level
           of Ricco Harbor.  There are tons of different ways to obtain these
           Blue Coins, good luck.
    
           --------------------------------------------------------------------
           2.D.03 - Red Coins
           --------------------------------------------------------------------
           
           These Red Coins come into play during certain Episodes.  You have to
           collect them all to receive the Shine for that particular Episode.
           Sometimes you may have to Ground Pound on a Red Switch to make the
           Red Coins appear within a certain level.
    
        ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
        2.E - Info about the Secret Red Coin Stages
        ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
    
        Come back to any "Secret" Episode after you have finished it once,
        by retrieving the Shine.  From within the Secret Stage, you will be
        presented with a Red Switch.  Ground Pound this Red Switch, then get
        all the Red Coins within the time limit to enjoy another Shine.
        You will also get to use FLUDD in these stages!
    
        ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
        2.F - Where's Yoshi, and How Do I Get Him?
        ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
    
        Yoshi will be at your disposal after you obtain the Shine in the
        level Pinna Park - Episode 4: The Wilted Sunflowers.  You must chase
        and spray Shadow Mario around Delfino Plaza until you get him to
        surrender the egg to you.  Now you can ride Yoshi in Delfino Plaza
        as well as in all levels that require his help, such as in the level
        Ricco Harbor - Episode 8: Yoshi's Fruit Adventure.

        ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
    
        The first level.  Located within the Delfino Plaza Statue. Slide on
        down the trail and into the once peaceful, Windmill Village.
    
           --------------------------------------------------------------------
           3.C.01 - Episode 1: Road to the Big Windmill
           --------------------------------------------------------------------
    
           Follow the road all the way to the beginning of the bridge to the
           Big Windmill.  Start by going to the first tight-rope, just past the
           3 line of palm trees.  Get to the other side of the tight-rope, and
           get back on the main road along the wall.  Go all the way to the
           mill-wheel and jump on one of it's spokes to get to the other side
           of it.  Again, follow the road to the slime/mud on the ground.
           Clear out a pathway up to the beginning of the bridge, that leads,
           to the Big Windmill.  Watch out for those big balls of slime/mud.
           Spray the lump of mud on the ground, by the bridge, to make a
           Piranha Plant come up from the slime/mud.  Take this Piranha Plant
           out by spraying him in the mouth, when it's open.
           Get the Shine, get happy.
    
           --------------------------------------------------------------------
           3.C.02 - Episode 2: Down with Petey Piranha!
           --------------------------------------------------------------------
    
           Go to the Bridge locations as in the previous episode, and now cross
           the newly fixed bridge.  Travel up the path of the Big Windmill,
           while avoiding the balls of goop rolling down at you.  Get to the
           roof-top of the Big Windmill by using one of the Windmill's Blades.
           Petey Piranha will break down the roof, making both Mario and
           himself fall down inside the Big Windmill.
           
           Spray Petey Piranha when he opens his mouth until he gets full and
           falls down.  Then do a Ground Pound on his belly-button.  Repeat
           this until you get your Shine.
    
           --------------------------------------------------------------------
           3.C.03 - Episode 3: The Hillside Cave Secret
           --------------------------------------------------------------------
    
           Get back to that bridge again, but don't cross it all the way.  Go
           to the middle of the bridge and jump off, toward the Hillside Cave,
           down to the tight-rope below.  Jump on the platforms and tight-ropes
           to get to the grass that's underneath the cave.  Do a back flip or
           use the tight-rope to get up to the level of the cave, and then just
           hover on in. Get ready for your first "Secret Stage" with no FLUDD
           to help you.
    
           --------------------------------------------------------------------
           3.C.04 - Episode 4: Red Coins of Windmill Village
           --------------------------------------------------------------------
    
           There are 5 Red Coins floating in the sky and on the roof-tops of
           Windmill Village, and 3 on top of the wall.
    
           --------------------------------------------------------------------
           3.C.05 - Episode 5: Petey Piranha Strikes Back
           --------------------------------------------------------------------
    
           This is a pretty challenging episode.  First, go down the road and
           into Windmill Village.  In the back of Windmill Village, up the
           cliffs, is where you'll find Petey Piranha for the second time.  To
           get up those cliffs, well... you have two options.
           
           Option 1: Get to work, and clean up some mud/slime until you find a
           Pianta.  Clean him off, and talk to him.  He will offer to throw
           you.  Sometimes he'll actually get you on top of those cliffs.
           
           Option 2: Go to the roof-top of the building where the tight-rope
           was connected to the Shine's platform in the previous episode.
           There you'll find a new tight-rope going in the opposite way,
           towards the cliffs of Petey Piranha.
           
           Now see those pink puffy enemies?  Those guys are the key to taking
           down Petey Piranha, in this Episode.  Just let one attach to your
           FLUDD and spray him at Petey Piranha to wake him up.  Now, chase
           after Petey Piranha and use those same pink puffy enemies to bring
           Petey down to the ground.  Then fight Petey Piranha as you did in
           Episode 2.
    
           --------------------------------------------------------------------
           3.C.06 - Episode 6: The Secret of the Dirty Lake
           --------------------------------------------------------------------
    
           This is referring to the lake below the Big Windmill.  You need to
           get into the small cave to get the Shine in this episode.  The water
           of the lake will hurt you, if you fall in, in this episode.  Go to a
           high point on the road to the Big Windmill and hover down to the
           logs or cave.  Prepare for another Secret Stage.
    
           --------------------------------------------------------------------
           3.C.07 - Episode 7: Shadow Mario on the Loose
           --------------------------------------------------------------------
    
           This is fairly simple.  Chase Shadow Mario around while spraying him
           until he surrenders a Shine.
    
           --------------------------------------------------------------------
           3.C.08 - Episode 8: The Red Coins of the Lake
           --------------------------------------------------------------------
    
           Wow, this is a little hard.  There is 1 Red Coin on the lake, the
           rest are on the tight-ropes and platforms above.  Try to get the
           Rocket Nozzle, located by the Hillside Cave, to greatly help out.
           A neat trick is to spray the Water Bug enemies, and then bounce off
           of them as if you just did a Rocket Blast.
    
           --------------------------------------------------------------------
           3.C.09 - 100 Gold Coin Strategies
           --------------------------------------------------------------------
    
           Episode 8 is the best place to accomplish this task.
           
           Stomp Pokeys in their upright position to get 3 coins instead of 1.
           
           Use the "Spin 'N' Spray" technique, I described above, to water all
           of the flower buds on the ground to receive bundles of coins.
    
           When the Pokey Flower-Head enemies pop up, out of the ground from
           the flower buds, try to spray them against a wall to get 3 coins
           instead of the 1 you get for jumping on top of it.
    
           Defeat all those Blue Flower-Head enemies by spraying at them first,
           to stun them, and then jump on them for 1 coin.
    
           Get the coins in the tree tops by spraying the trees leaves.
           Also, defeat all those Blue Flower-Head enemies in the trees.
    
           Get the coins on the lake surface.
    
           Get the coins on the tight-ropes above the lake.
    
           --------------------------------------------------------------------
           3.C.10 - Blue Coin Locations
           --------------------------------------------------------------------
    
           There is a Blue Coin floating in the sky of Windmill Village.
    
           In Episodes 3-8, go to the top of the Big Windmill, at the location
           where Petey Piranha was at in Episode 2.  Jump on top of the newly
           perched Pokey to receive a Blue Coin.
    
           In Episodes 5-8, before the first tight-rope in the level, use the
           palm tree on the furthest right of Mario's starting location to get
           on top of the wall to the right.  Then do a Triple Jump on up to the
           pillar.  There you'll find a dirty Pianta. Clean him off and he'll
           hook you up with a Blue Coin.

           --------------------------------------------------------------------
           3.C.11 - Secret Red Coin Stages
           --------------------------------------------------------------------
           
           Choose Episode 3, then go to the Hillside Cave and Ground Pounce on
           the Red Switch.  You have 1 minute.  Set your FLUDD to Hover mode
           and go up the moving platforms.  Get the 1 Red Coin on the way up.
           There are 4 Red Coins on the moving blocks, one in each corner.
           Hover, Hover, Hover to get them.  Last 3 Red Coins are located out
           in space on the spinning stars.  Jump from the multi-colored cubes
           to get enough height to your jump, then use FLUDD to Hover to the
           spinning stars.  Good luck.
    
           Choose Episode 6, then go to the Dirty Lake Cave.  Avoid getting the
           Turbo Nozzle at all costs!  There is 1 Red Coin on this first set of
           Pink Blue flopping blocks.  1 is on a spinning star next to a 1-UP.
           You can completely Hover across the pit from the multi-colored cube.
           1 is on the yellow slab where the red bumpers are at.  2 are on the
           multi-colored cube, that goes up like an elevator.  The last 3 are
           on the last set of Pink and Blue flopping blocks.  Hover like mad to
           obtain these.  Good luck.

        3.D - Ricco Harbor
        ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
    
        The second level. Located within the Boathouse.  Home of all the
        beautiful Bloopers...
    
           --------------------------------------------------------------------
           3.D.01 - Episode 1: Gooper Blooper Breaks Out
           --------------------------------------------------------------------
    
           There is the normal way to do this, and there is the short way to do
           this.  You want the short way right?
    
           From the start, go straight ahead up the ramp and onto the boat.
           Punch through the vertical gates with the B BUTTON, and kick the
           horizontal gates with the A BUTTON. Navigate to the boat's
           smoke-stack.  Get on top of it by doing a back-flip and hover till
           you lift-up enough.  When on top of the smoke-stack do another
           back-flip and hover towards the thin floating metal platform. Run
           down to the end of the thin metal platform, then jump off to the
           left, down below to the pink gate.  Then head for those colorful
           boxes and pull on that tentacle hanging out.  Do this by pressing
           the B BUTTON and pulling backwards on the control stick.  Now,
           get ready for Gooper Blooper.
           
           Here is one of the simplest ways to beat Gooper Blooper.  Just spray
           his face.  Then, when he slams down his tentacles, jump one of his
           front 2 tentacles to paralyze it.  Then press and hold the B BUTTON,
           to grab it, and yank it off by pressing backwards on the control
           stick.  You can break off more tentacles if you like, but you only
           need to break off this 1 only.  Now spray his face completely, until
           it's all clean. When he slams down his other 3 tentacles again, run
           in and grab his mouth with the B BUTTON and snap it back at him by
           pressing backwards on the control stick. You're done with round 1.
           In the next round, he'll spit out goop around him. Clean-up some of
           the goop, to have a path-way to his mouth, and repeat what you did
           in round 1 to defeat him.
    
           --------------------------------------------------------------------
           3.D.02 - Episode 2: Blooper Surfing Safari
           --------------------------------------------------------------------
    
           Head to the right, toward the logs, from the start location.  Jump
           on the logs and onto the platform where the Bloopers are.  Pick a
           color and surf, while following the coins.  Enter that opening that
           the coins lead to.
    
           Now you have to finished this obstacle course within a certain
           amount of time , on your Blooper.  Pick a color and ride as fast as
           you can by pressing the control stick forward.  Press the A BUTTON
           to jump.  If you're fast enough, the Pianta at the end will tell you
           how cool you are and grant you a Shine.
    
           --------------------------------------------------------------------
           3.D.03 - Episode 3: The Caged Shine Sprite
           --------------------------------------------------------------------
    
           There is the normal way to do this, and there is the short way to do
           this.  You want the short way right?
    
           From the start, do you see that ramp to the boat on your right?
           Good, DO NOT go that way.  Instead do a double jump and hover to
           the first boat with the gate on top.
    
           Navigate to the boat's smoke-stack.  Get on top of it by doing a
           back-flip and hover till you lift-up enough.  When on top of the
           smoke-stack do another back-flip and hover towards the thin floating
           metal platform, where the hook is moving back and forth above.
           There you go, you just saved yourself a bunch of time.
    
           Grab onto that hook and then jump on the gate across the way.
           Punch the gate to get to the other side, then go on.  Keep following
           those arrows.  Take out the 2 Bloopers right next to each other.
           Bounce on all the spring boards all the way up to the Cage.  Fall in
           the Cage from the top to snag your Shine.
    
           --------------------------------------------------------------------
           3.D.04 - Episode 4: The Secret of Ricco Tower
           --------------------------------------------------------------------
    
           It's best to have the Turbo Nozzle for this mission, and you also
           need the Rocket Nozzle.
    
           From the start, go to the left and get the Turbo Nozzle.  Jump into
           the water and use the Turbo Nozzle, with the R TRIGGER, towards the
           submarine.  If you don't have the Turbo Nozzle, then just swim
           regularly.  Go past the submarine, and jump onto the platform with
           the red box holding the Rocket Nozzle.  Now swim back past the
           submarine and to a little boat in the water, next to all the goop.
           Rocket Blast from the water to the land.  The tower is above, just
           like in the cut scene.  Rocket Blast your way on up, until you get
           into the Ricco Tower entrance.  A new Secret Stage is presented.
    
           --------------------------------------------------------------------
           3.D.05 - Episode 5: Gooper Blooper Returns
           --------------------------------------------------------------------
    
           Gooper Blooper strikes back... oh wait, that was the last level.
           This is faster going then the first encounter with this guy, but the
           battle itself is just a little more stressful.
    
           Go straight ahead, up the ramp, onto the ship.  Punch through the
           gate both times, and head for the Pianta on top of the ship.  Do a 
           right turn where the little piece of gate sticks out from the ship,
           like a plank over water.
    
           Jump on the moving gate-like platform, which is swinging by a chain,
           and then jump off it and hover to the big platform with the arrow on
           it.  Then jump and hover to the next big platform with the arrow.
           Next jump onto another gate-like platform, and then jump to the big
           gate with the Pianta.  Talk to the Pianta, and he will throw Mario
           over to the helipad, where Gooper Blooper resides.
    
           Here is one of the simplest ways to beat Gooper Blooper.  Just spray
           his face.  Then, when he slams down his tentacles, jump one of his
           front 2 tentacles to paralyze it.  Then press and hold the B BUTTON,
           to grab it, and yank it off by pressing backwards on the control
           stick.  You can break off more tentacles if you like, but you only
           need to break off this 1 only.  Now spray his face completely, until
           it's all clean. When he slams down his other 3 tentacles again, run
           in and grab his mouth with the B BUTTON and snap it back at him by
           pressing backwards on the control stick. You're done with round 1.
    
           Next round, Gooper Blooper will spit out goop, all over the helipad.
           Just clean up the goop and repeat the process as before.  If you
           take awhile with him, he may start to spin around, using his
           tentacles spread out like a helicopter.  Just fall down into one of
           the holes, with the gate at the bottom, to avoid this maneuver.
    
           --------------------------------------------------------------------
           3.D.06 - Episode 6: Red Coins on the Water
           --------------------------------------------------------------------
    
           Head to the right, toward the logs, from the start location.  Jump
           on the logs and onto the platform where the Bloopers are.  Pick a
           color and surf, while gathering the 8 Red Coins.  2 of them are
           hiding near the beginning, off of the regular path of coins.  You
           must jump for the 1 Red Coin at the end of the course.  Get the
           Shine when you get all 8 Red Coins.
           
           --------------------------------------------------------------------
           3.D.07 - Episode 7: Shadow Mario Revisited
           --------------------------------------------------------------------
    
           This is fairly simple.  Chase Shadow Mario around while spraying him
           until he surrenders a Shine.

           3.D.08 - Episode 8: Yoshi's Fruit Adventure
           --------------------------------------------------------------------
    
           This episode requires that you have Yoshi by obtaining the Shine
           within Pinna Park - Episode 4: The Wilted Sunflowers, and that
           you've also jacked the Yoshi Egg from Shadow Mario in Delfino Plaza.
    
           Take the man-hole right from the beginning, and head for the
           location of where Gooper Blooper was in Episode 1.  Near there is 2
           canisters that are connected with some pipe.
           
           Get to the top of one of these canisters.  On top of both of the
           canisters is a big button.  You must do a Ground Pound on the button
           that is in the "up position".  One canister will have the button in
           this position, and the other in a "down position".  When one
           button is Ground Pounded to the "down position", then the other
           button on the other canister will go into the "up position". A
           different fruit will come out of the pipe each time the button is
           Ground Pounded to the "down position".
           
           Wait until a leafless-pineapple comes out of the pipe and then kick
           it over to the Yoshi Egg.  A Purple Yoshi will hatch.  Take him over
           to the back wall with the arrow, where the Fish enemies are hopping
           out of the water.  Use Yoshi's Juice Spray to turn the Fish enemies
           into platforms.  Use a platform to travel over to the first
           suspended metal platform.  Jump off the metal platform to your left,
           toward the tree on the rocky wall.  Spray the fruit down off of the
           tree and feed it to Yoshi.  Yoshi will become Pink.
           
           Get back on the metal platform and Juice Spray more Fish enemies, to
           turn them into a new type of platform that floats upwards.  Use the
           new type of platform to get up to the top suspended metal platform,
           where the Shine resides.  Use Yoshi's Juice Spray to wash away the
           yellow/orange slime/mud and get your Shine on.

           --------------------------------------------------------------------
           3.E.01 - Episode 1: Dune Bud Sand Castle Secret
           --------------------------------------------------------------------
    
           Easy to find, a little bit harder to do.  Just spray that Dune Bud
           in the middle of the beach, until it bursts, to make a sand castle
           appear.  Go through the door of the sand caste and have fun in the
           Secret Stage.
    
           --------------------------------------------------------------------
           3.E.02 - Episode 2: Mirror Madness! Tilt, Slam, Bam!
           --------------------------------------------------------------------
    
           There are 3 mirrors at the back of the level, that you will need to
           get on top of.  On top of them resides some enemies that you will
           need to dispose of in a special way.
    
           To get to the mirrors, go all the way to the back of the level,
           until you get to a Dune Bud, tucked away in a cove.  Spray on that
           Dune Bud to make some sand stairs rise, that Mario can climb up.
           Get to the tight-rope near by, at the top, and hope on to get to the
           first mirror.  Implore similar tactics to get to the other mirrors.
    
           When on top of a mirror,  spray one of enemies until he gets to the
           edge and starts to loose his balance.  Then go to the opposite side
           of that enemy, as he's still loosing his balance, and Ground Pound
           that opposite edge.  This will fling him off of the mirror.  Do this
           until every last one of those guys is evicted from your mirrors.
           Doing this will get you paid 1 Shine.
    
           --------------------------------------------------------------------
           3.E.03 - Episode 3: Wiggler Ahoy! Full Steam Ahead!
           --------------------------------------------------------------------
           
           This is a pretty fun Boss battle.  Spray the Dune Buds, till they
           burst, as Wiggler runs by.  This will tip him over.  Then jump on
           his belly and do a Ground Pound, where the Red Arrow is pointing.
           Repeat as necessary.  When Wiggler falls into the water, try to do a
           double jump or triple jump + dive to get on his belly, by pressing
           the B BUTTON in the air.  Try different ways to get on his belly,
           when he's in the water, if you would like.  At last, when your final
           Ground Pound is initiated, enjoy your Shine.
    
           --------------------------------------------------------------------
           3.E.04 - Episode 4: The Sand Bird is Born
           --------------------------------------------------------------------
    
           Get all the way up the hill, to the back of the level.  Now slide on
           down the brownish trail, and bounce and/or hover to the hole in the
           Sand Bird Tower.
    
           This is a Red Coin Collecting Stage in disguise.  Quickly get the
           Red Coins on both of the Sand Birds wings, then rush to the tail and
           pick up the 1-UP on the cloud.  Get the rest of the Red Coins on the
           tail and on the head.  The Sand Bird will try to be tricky and turn
           on it's side shortly after.  Try to get on the side of his tail or
           neck, when he does this.  After he turns back to normal, you're home
           free.  Jump onto the top of the tower to gather your last Red Coin
           and the Shine.

           3.E.05 - Episode 5: II Piantissimo's Sand Sprint
           --------------------------------------------------------------------
    
           This guy isn't so fast if you use the right tactics.
    
           While running, use the B BUTTON dive slide to gain speed.
    
           Back-flips and/or triple jumps, are needed for getting up the
           mid-section cliffs.
    
           Go to the back of the level where the Dune Bud, that made stairs,
           once was. Do wall jumps up to the green hills, and then run and jump
           to the flag to get your Shine.
    
           --------------------------------------------------------------------
           3.E.06 - Episode 6: Red Coins in the Coral Reef
           --------------------------------------------------------------------
    
           The Coral Reef is to your left as soon as you start the episode.
           But, before you run off to get your Red Coins and Shine.  I suggest
           you go to that island directly behind you and get the Turbo Nozzle.
           This helps greatly with getting the Red Coins that are following the
           schools of fish.
    
           Go to the Coral Reef and dive for Red Coins, within it.  Also, get
           the Red Coins that are following the schools of fish using the
           Turbo Nozzle, if you have it.

           3.E.07 - Episode 7: It's Shadow Mario! After Him!
           --------------------------------------------------------------------
    
           This is fairly simple.  Chase Shadow Mario around while spraying him
           until he surrenders a Shine.
    
           --------------------------------------------------------------------
           3.E.08 - Episode 8: The Watermelon Festival
           --------------------------------------------------------------------
    
           This episode can frustrate the unlucky peeps out there.  There is a
           Watermelon Festival going on and the Islander with the biggest
           watermelon wins a Shine.
    
           Located the biggest watermelon isn't too hard. The biggest
           watermelon in the episode is located at the back of the whole level,
           where the flag was for the race with II Piantissimo. Getting it down
           to the hut and over the bridge is the hard part.

        The fourth level.  Get here by basting off from the cannon within
        Delfino Plaza.  This level is a great big amusement park.  What a
        great theme for a Platformer game.
    
           --------------------------------------------------------------------
           3.F.01 - Episode 1: Mecha-Bowser Appears!
           --------------------------------------------------------------------
    
           This is a pretty story driven episode.  Chase Shadow Mario up
           through the Pinna Park entrance, and then to the water, to begin the
           enjoyment.  Shadow Mario has a surprise.
    
           Ride the Roller Coaster and pick up the missiles that appear on the
           track.  This happens automatically.  You can shoot these missiles
           with the R TRIGGER.
    
           First off, Bullet Bills will chase you down the track.  You can
           either shoot them with a missile or just spray them with your FLUDD.
           Mecha-Bowser is your main target here though, so concentrate your
           missiles on him as much as possible.  After Mecha-Bowser takes a few
           missile hits from you, you'll see a story event as well as a Shine.
     
           --------------------------------------------------------------------
           3.F.02 - Episode 2: The Beach Cannon's Secret
           --------------------------------------------------------------------
    
           From the start, go to the right along the sand.  Bullet Bill enemies
           will be flying at you on a direct intercept course.  Dodge them or
           spray them, as run further in that direction.
    
           You will soon approach the culprit, that is shooting all those
           Bullet Bills at you.  His name is Monte Mole.  When you get close
           enough, he will start to throw Bob-omb enemies at you, from out of
           his Beach Cannon.  Spray a Bob-omb enemy to paralyze it, then grab
           it with the B BUTTON, and toss it back at Monte Mole, by pressing
           the B BUTTON again.  After a few tosses, back at Monte Mole, you
           will win the battle, and open a way to another Secret Stage.  Jump
           on in the Beach Cannon, and try not to panic while inside.
    
           --------------------------------------------------------------------
           3.F.03 - Episode 3: Red Coins of the Pirate Ships
           --------------------------------------------------------------------
    
           This one can take some time to do.  Basically, start out by heading
           for the Pirate Ships.  There is 1 on the way there and 2 actually
           above the Pirate Ships, in the air.  The rest are around the green
           gates.  Using the palm tree near the Yoshi-Go-Round, is a good way
           to get to the green gates by hovering.  You can knock all those
           Electric Koopa-type enemies off by punching them, if you're
           vertical, with the B BUTTON, or kicking them with the A BUTTON, if
           you're horizontal.  But this is not necessary, just run through them
           for a shockingly good time if you'd like.  The last Red Coin and
           the Shine are above the 3 Electric Koopa-type enemies, that are all
           in a line, on the green gates furthest toward the Ferris Wheel.  If
           you seam to be missing 1 Red Coin.  It's probably the one below that
           very same green gate, as it is out of view.
    
           --------------------------------------------------------------------
           3.F.04 - Episode 4: The Wilted Sunflowers
           --------------------------------------------------------------------
    
           Head on over to the right, where you battled with the Monte Mole and
           his Beach Cannon.  There you'll find some sad Sunflowers and some
           big eggs.  Apparently the eggs are causing all the sadness, so spray
           them.  The eggs will reveal themselves as big turtle-like enemies.
           Run in front of them and then quickly run away from them, to make
           them jump at you.  Stay in the sand area, and when they hit the sand
           they'll get stuck upside-down for a few seconds.  Ground Pound them
           on the belly to exterminate them.  When all the big turtle-like
           enemies are defeated, the Queen Sunflower will give you a Shine.
           
           Yoshi's Story, is now activated to happen, so you can unlock him in
           the game.  Just check out the next sequence.
    
           --------------------------------------------------------------------
           3.F.05 - Episode 5: The Runaway Ferris Wheel
           --------------------------------------------------------------------
    
           This episode is kind of hard, due to Sunshine's Camera Engine.  You
           must navigate Mario to the back of the level, and to the back
           Ferris Wheel.  Just go straight ahead right from the start, all the
           way to the gazebo where the pineapple is located.  Run past this
           gazebo and down to the back of the level where all the water is
           falling down.
    
           The climb is a tough one, but you can do it.  Try putting the
           camera all the way in, as close as possible to Mario.
    
           Use FLUDD's Hover Nozzle to manipulate the rotating gates.  Near the
           top, you must knock off all the Electric Koopa-type enemies, off of
           their gates, by punching them with the B BUTTON.  Get to the top and
           kick off the Big Blue Electric Koopa-type enemy, from his gate,
           this time using the A BUTTON.
    
           The Shine then goes up to the top-most platform of the Ferris Wheel.
           The Ferris Wheel also slows down, at this point.  Jump on one of the
           Ferris Wheel's Cars.  It's easiest to jump from the right-side,
           facing the Ferris Wheel's back-side.  Travel on up to the top-most
           platform and claim you well earned Shine.
           
           --------------------------------------------------------------------
           3.F.06 - Episode 6: The Yoshi-Go-Round's Secret
           --------------------------------------------------------------------
    
           Go to the Yoshi-Go-Round and check it out.  There is an Orange Yoshi
           missing from it.  The Pianta will tell you that it broke.  Time to
           find the real deal.
    
           The real Orange Yoshi is located near the base of the Ferris Wheel,
           right behind the big tree with the drippy nose.  The Orange Yoshi is
           still in his egg, of course, and you must get the right fruit to
           hatch him.  Go find the fruit that he wants and come back.  When you
           hatch him, then take him on over to the Yoshi-Go-Round to enter yet
           another Secret Stage.  Partake in the excitement.
    
           --------------------------------------------------------------------
           3.F.07 - Episode 7: Shadow Mario in the Park
           --------------------------------------------------------------------
    
           This is fairly simple.  Chase Shadow Mario around while spraying him
           until he surrenders a Shine.
    
           --------------------------------------------------------------------
           3.F.08 - Episode 8: Roller Coaster Balloons
           --------------------------------------------------------------------
           
           The Roller Coaster entrance is located across the bridge of the
           gazebo, with the pineapple.  When on the Roller Coaster, wait until
           you get a missile, then fire it at the pink balloons.  Sometimes you
           can hit 2 or 3 balloons with 1 shot.  Good luck.

        ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
    
        The fifth level.  Located down the pipe on the rooftops, above the
        Statue of Delfino Plaza.  This level is the equivalent of a classic
        Mario Ghost House.
    
           --------------------------------------------------------------------
           3.G.01 - Episode 1: The Manta Storm
           --------------------------------------------------------------------
    
           This one is kind of challenging.  Go up to the fluorescent-green
           slim/mud and talk to the Hotel Manager.  Shortly after, a Manta
           (sting-ray type creature) will appear.  Spray it to make it split.
           Spray the split parts to make them split, until you destroy all of
           the split parts of the Manta.
    
           Use the coins in the huts and in the trees.  You will probably need
           them for life.  Also, don't be left with an empty FLUDD.  You will
           run out of water a few times during this battle, refill often.

           --------------------------------------------------------------------
    
           Head on up towards the Hotel Delfino, and talk to the Hotel Manager.
           He will take you inside.  In the middle of the lobby is a pillar
           with Pink Boos flying around it.  You must spray the Pink Boos to
           turn them into platforms.  Jump on the platforms until you reach
           the top.  On the 3rd floor, jump into the Big Boo Statue's mouth,
           and into another Secret Stage.  Good luck.
    
           --------------------------------------------------------------------
           3.G.03 - Episode 3: Mysterious Hotel Delfino
           --------------------------------------------------------------------
    
           Head on up towards the Hotel Delfino, and talk to the Hotel Manager.
           He will take you inside.  Go up to the third floor and into the open
           door that leads to the spa area.  You can't get into the spa, but
           just jump all around the floor until you find a loose tile.  Mario
           will fall through to a room on the floor below.
    
           In this room is a painting on the wall, spray it until it fully
           reveals a picture of a Boo.  Jump through the painting into the
           next room.
    
           In this room is a French/Japanese type door.  Spray all 4
           parts until you make a picture of Boo.  Step on through to the next
           room.
    
           Here you'll see some more Pink Boos.  Spray them to turn them into
           platforms.  Then jump on up to a room on the next floor.
    
           In this room, spray the shelves to make them open up a new path-way.
           Go through to the next room.
    
           In this next room is a funny looking tile on the ground.  You know
           what to do.  Fall on down to the next floor.

           pineapple.  Leave through the door.
    
           Go downstairs and get hatch Yoshi.  Then take Yoshi up to the third
           floor.  Take the open door in the corner by the spa.  Jump on the
           bed in this room to get into the ventilation system above.
           
           Yoshi can eat all the Boos up here.  Stomp on the cracked floor
           tiles until you find the one that leads to the spa, where the Shine
           is at.  Grab el Shine.

           --------------------------------------------------------------------
    
           Head on up towards the Hotel Delfino, and talk to the Hotel Manager.
           He will take you inside.  Head to the door near where the Yoshi Egg
           was at in Episode 3.  Talk with the Pianta standing in front of the
           door.

           spin the slot machine.  Get all fruit icons for an assortment of
           fruit to come out.  Grab the chilly pepper and then throw it into
           King Boo's mouth.  Now grab another fruit and throw it at him.

           3.G.06 - Episode 6: Scrubbing Sirena Beach
           --------------------------------------------------------------------
    
           This episode aint that fun.  You must clean-up the beach and also
           the entrance-way to Hotel Delfino, within a time limit.
    
           Run down the beach first, while wiggling the control stick from left
           to right, as you spray.  Don't worry about too many of the little
           specks of slime/mud, you can still get the Shine if the area is NOT
           100% clean.
    
           Next, go to the entrance-way of the hotel, and don't forget to clean
           around the hunts.  You may need to refill FLUDD in one of those
           bird-baths.  Your Hover Nozzle isn't as effective as you'd like it
           to be, in this episode, but you may need to use it sparingly here.
    
           When Sirena Beach is clean enough, the Hotel Manager will give you a
           Shine.
    
           --------------------------------------------------------------------
           3.G.07 - Episode 7: Shadow Mario Checks In
           --------------------------------------------------------------------
    
           This is fairly simple.  Chase Shadow Mario around while spraying him
           until he surrenders a Shine.
    
           --------------------------------------------------------------------
           3.G.08 - Episode 8: Red Coins in the Hotel

           Head on up towards the Hotel Delfino, and talk to the Hotel Manager.
           He will take you inside.  This episode is much like Episode 3.  Run
           through the hotel collecting all the Red Coins.

        The sixth level.  Look up into the sun will standing in the pillar of
        light, within Delfino Plaza.  Prepare for a lot of climbing.
    
           --------------------------------------------------------------------

           --------------------------------------------------------------------
    
           Time for a climb.  Travel to the top of the level, while spraying
           all the graffiti painted on the side of the cliff.  This will make
           platforms come out that you can use to climb on.  Get to the top and
           fight Monte Mole again, as you did in Pinna Park.
    
           --------------------------------------------------------------------

           Secret of Noki Bay.  Spray the cliff tiles to make them indent into
           the cliff.  Wall jump through-out the indent and navigate over to
           the next cliff tile.  Repeat again.  You only have a limited amount
           of time to navigate through the indents.  At the end you will, once
           again, fight Gooper Blooper.  Defeat him and then fall down into the
           Tricky Ruins to get your Shine.
    
           --------------------------------------------------------------------
           3.H.03 - Episode 3: Red Coins in a Bottle
           --------------------------------------------------------------------
    
           You will be put in a bottle right from the start.  A trick you can
           use is to press the Y BUTTON for the "Look Around View", and still
           control Mario around.  This comes in handy every once in a while.
           Watch your Life Meter constantly, and get Gold Coins to refill it.
           Get all the Red Coins to get the Shine.
    
           --------------------------------------------------------------------
           3.H.04 - Episode 4: Eely-Mouth's Dentist
           --------------------------------------------------------------------
    
           Time for another climb.  You must transverse the cliffs of Noki Bay
           yet again.  Go all the way to the top where you uncorked the
           waterfall in Episode 1.  Talk to Grandpa Noki, then jump into the
           waterfall.  Get ready to battle Eely and his nasty mouth.
    
           Control Mario around like you did in the bottle, and get Gold Coins
           when your Life Meter is low.  You can also pop air bubbles and
           let Mario breath in the air to restore your Life Meter.  Clean all
           of Eely's teeth when he opens his mouth.  After all are clean, one
           tooth of his will fall out, and you get a Shine.
    
           Noki Bay is now back to it's normal refreshing clean self.
    
           --------------------------------------------------------------------
           3.H.05 - Episode 5: II Piantissimo's Surf Swim

           Get up to the platforms, where II Piantissimo stands.  It's another
           race to the flag.  Jump on the platforms towards the flag, then jump
           down into the Noki Bay.  Speed Swim with the R TRIGGER while tapping
           the A BUTTON, towards the flag.  You'll win and get your Shine with
           no problem.
    
           --------------------------------------------------------------------
           3.H.06 - Episode 6: The Shell's Secret
           --------------------------------------------------------------------
    
           Wow, this is a little tuff.  Take to the tight-ropes.  Jump over the
           electricity.  Get all the way up to the top, and jump in the Shell,
           for one of the hardest Secret Stages yet.
    
           --------------------------------------------------------------------
           3.H.07 - Episode 7: Hold It, Shadow Mario!
           --------------------------------------------------------------------
    
           This is a little harder then normal.  Chase Shadow Mario around
           while spraying him and be ready to do a lot of wall jumping.  Near
           the top, he'll jump back down where he started.  Follow him down and
           repeat the process.  Eventually he'll surrender a Shine.
    
           --------------------------------------------------------------------
           3.H.08 - Episode 8: The Red Coin Fish
           --------------------------------------------------------------------
    
           Go on up to the top, and jump into the waterfall, again.  This is a
           Red Coin level, where the Red Coins are all attached to a fish made
           of Gold and Red Coins.  The fish swims around and you must chase
           and touch him, to receive your Red Coins.
    
           It's best if you use the "Look Around View" tactic, by pressing the
           Y BUTTON and controlling Mario around.  This comes in handy during
           this whole episode.  Get all the Red Coins = Shine.

           3.I.01 - Episode 1: Chain Chomplets Unchained
           --------------------------------------------------------------------
    
           There are 3 Chain Chomplets, with fevers, in this episode.  You must
           spray them to cool them down, and then fling them into the middle
           water-hole with the palm tree island.  Do this by pressing and
           holding down the B BUTTON then pulling back on the control stick.
           Also, move the control stick to the left and right to aim the fling.
           When the last one is in the water-hole, you'll be granted a Shine.
    
           --------------------------------------------------------------------
           3.I.02 - Episode 2: II Piantissimo's Crazy Climb
           --------------------------------------------------------------------
    
           Whoa! he actually beat me this once and only time.  If you crash
           into II Piantissimo while doing the dive slide, you're history.
    
           The best way to beat this guy is to NOT take his same path.  Take
           the left-most path in the level, while doing the dive slide.  Do a
           triple jump right near the end, to get over the cement wall.  Then
           run up the tree to the flag.  You get Shine...
    
           --------------------------------------------------------------------
           3.I.03 - Episode 3: The Goopy Inferno
           --------------------------------------------------------------------
    
           There is 2 ways to do this episode.  I prefer method 2.  Get to the
           Mayor, located on top of the golden mushroom, and clean him.
    
           Method 1:  Go to the hole with the gate at the bottom, located at
           the back of the level, near the hot spring pool.  There is a Pianta
           standing near it.  Ground Pound the bottom of the hole to get down
           to the underside of Pianta Village.  Transverse until you get back
           up to the village, near the golden mushroom.
    
           Method 2:  Go to where the water-hole is that you used in Episode 1.
           Splash water up on the goop by running in and out of the water.
           Make yourself a little trail, then do a double or triple jump
           towards the golden mushroom, while hovering.  You can also use the
           little mud enemies to bounce off of their heads.
    
           When you get up near the golden mushroom, jump and hover on over to
           the big tree, in the middle of the level, and jump on up on it's
           platforms.  Then jump and hover on over to the golden mushroom, and
           clean-up the Mayor.  He'll then hook you up with a Shine for saving
           his life.
    
           --------------------------------------------------------------------
           3.I.04 - Episode 4: Chain Chomp's Bath
           --------------------------------------------------------------------
    
           This is easy, but may not seam like it.  It just takes a little
           patience.
    
           Spray the Chain Chomp until he is completely cooled-down.  Then grab
           his chain-tail, by pressing the B BUTTON.  Then just leave him alone
           by putting down his tail, and heading for the back of the level.
           Pick up a water-barrel near the hot spring pool, and then head on
           over to the hot spring pool, staying on the dirt path.   When the
           Chain Chomp comes by, let him have the water-barrel, by pressing the
           B BUTTON.  He will be completely cooled-down with this one barrel.
           Then grab his chain-tail and pull him into the hot spring pool area.
           DO NOT fall into the hot spring pool, instead, go around it and pull
           the Chain Chomp's head into it.  There you go, jump on his head and
           grab your Shine.
    
           --------------------------------------------------------------------
           3.I.05 - Episode 5: Secret of the Village Underside
           --------------------------------------------------------------------
    
           This episode can be difficult.  It involves getting Yoshi and then
           falling onto a mushroom below.  Then jumping from mushroom to
           mushroom.
    
           First, cross the bridge.  See what kind of fruit that the Yoshi Egg
           would like to have, then head on up to the little fruit tree.  The
           tree is located on the big chunck of rock, covered in grass, that
           overlooks the Hot Spring.  If you go to the Hot Spring and face
           towards the beginnig of the level, then you'll see what big chunck
           of rock that I'm talking about.  Get the fruit, and then take it to
           the Yoshi Egg.
    
           Ride Yoshi over to the swing that's close by.  You'll see one of
           those pits, with the movable gates at the bottom, near there.  DON'T
           fall into the pit, just get on the side of it furthest from the
           bridge.  If you're looking towards the beginning of the level, both
           that pit and the bridge should be on your right side.  Take Yoshi
           and do a jump of faith off the cliff of the level.  You, more then
           likely, will land on a purple pink mushroom.  You can get down to
           some of these mushrooms by jumping off other parts of the level, but
           this is the best place for me.
    
           Now just jump from mushroom to mushroom, using Yoshi's Peddle Jump.
           You eill soon get to some yellow/orange slim/mud.  Wash it off with
           Yoshi's Juice Spit, and jump down the hole.  Get ready for a weird,
           yet easy, Secret Stage.
    
           --------------------------------------------------------------------
           3.I.06 - Episode 6: Piantas in Need
           --------------------------------------------------------------------
    
           This episode is basic as can be.  You have 3 minutes to clean the
           infernal goop, and wash off all the Piantas 'till they sparkle. If
           you'd like, after you've freed all the Piantas and washed them off,
           talk to each one to receive a ton of Blue Coins.  Talk to the Mayor
           at the beginning of the level, to get your Shine.
    
           --------------------------------------------------------------------
           3.I.07 - Episode 7: Shadow Mario Runs Wild
           --------------------------------------------------------------------
    
           This is fairly simple.  Chase Shadow Mario around while spraying him
           and avoiding his infernal goop.  He leaves a trailer behind him, so
           periodically wash the trail as you are concentrating on spraying him
           also.  He will soon surrender his Shine.
    
           --------------------------------------------------------------------
           3.I.08 - Episode 8: Fluff Festival Coin Hunt
           --------------------------------------------------------------------
    
           This one takes a very long time.  Be prepared to search everywhere
           for these Red Coins.  At least there is some relaxing music and a 
           festival going on.  You will also need to ride the Fluffs to get
           above for your Red Coin hunting extravaganza.  Spray them to make
           them a bit bigger, so they don't descend so fast.
