===============================================================================

Hello and welcome to the Super Mario Sunshine FAQ/Walkthrough. This text
document will provide you will a full walkthrough for all the episodes for all
the areas, and also where to all the shines and blue coins.

I bought Super Mario Sunshine on it's day of release (4th October 2002 in the
UK) for a cool 40 quid, and needless to say I loved it. I didn't really enjoy
Super Mario 64 for the N64 (not sure why; however after playing this I'm
tempted to pick it up again and give it another go) so I wasn't quite sure if
I was going to enjoy this one, but I really did. It's just a very fun game to
play, as just around all Mario's are. And as you may know, it's freaking HARD
in places, proving that this game isn't just for kids. For example my mate Rob
kicked his GameCube console across his bedroom because he was got frustrated on
one of the special stages. =D

I hope you are enjoying this game as much as I did, and I hope this guide
becomes of use to you in one way or another.

 2.01. Story
=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=

This is the story of Super Mario Sunshine. Note that these are lifted
directly from the game's manual, and is not my own words.

--

Close your eyes and imagine... soothing sunshine accompanied by the sound of
waves gently breaking on the shore. High above, seagulls turn lazy circles in
the clear blue sky. This is ISLE DELFINO.

Far from the hustle and bustle of the Mushroom Kingdom, this island resort
glitters like a gem in the waters of a southern sea.

Mario, Peach, and an entourage of Toads have come to Isle Delfino to relax and
unwind. At least, that's their plan... but when they arrive, they find things
have gone horribly wrong...

According to the island inhabitants, the person responsible for the mess has
a round nose, a thick moustache, and a cap...

What? But... that sounds like Mario!?

The islanders are saying that Mario's mess has polluted the island and caused
their energy source, the Shine Sprites, to vanish.

Now the falsely accused Mario has promised to clean up the island, but... how?

Never fear! FLUDD, the latest invention from Gadd Science, Inc., can help
Mario tidy up the island, take on baddies, and lend a nozzle in all kinds of
sticky situations.

Can Mario clean the island, capture the villain, and clear his good name? It's
time for another Mario adventure to get started!

=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=
 2.02. Characters
=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=

These are the characters of Super Mario Sunshine.

-----
Mario
-----

Mario is back in another adventure, this time in a different land and with a
new ally in the form of the FLUDD pack. He sets out to clean up the polluted
Isle Delfino, and to find out who has done it and why they are impersonating
him.

-----
FLUDD
-----

Created by Professor E. Gadd of Luigi's Mansion fame, the FLUDD pack is a
water shooting device that Mario uses to aid him throughout this adventure.
FLUDD is an acronym for something, but I cannot remember what. :/

--------------
Princess Peach
--------------

Peach, tired from her many years of being kidnapped my Bowser, comes to Isle
Delfino with Mario for a holiday. Until Mario gets framed of course. Played.

----------
Toadsworth
----------

Peach's steward. Does nothing but sit like a pretty boy and moan occasionally
in this game. Rumours going around the Mushroom Kingdom say that Toadsworth
can breakdance and down a pint in 4 seconds, however these are unconfirmed.

------------
Shadow Mario
------------

The game's baddy, who is impersonating Mario (and isn't doing a grand job as
he is somewhat blue and transparent) for some unknown reason. Armed with a
paintbrush, he has polluted the entire island with paint and slime.

---------------
Piantas / Nokis
---------------

These guys are the residents of Isle Delfino. Pianta's are the large guys with
the trees growing out their skulls, and Noki's are little shrimps. Talking to
these during the game often provide helpful information.

=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=
 2.03. Basics
=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=

Here is a quick explanation of the game basics of Super Mario Sunshine.

---------------
The overall aim
---------------

You play as Mario in a full 3D world, and your aim is to collect Shine Sprites.
By collecting more Shines you open up more areas within Delfino Plaza, and
eventually you get to go into the last area and fight the final boss. You don't
have to get all 120 shines to complete the game, you just need to complete the
first 7 episodes in all the different areas of the game. You get Shines by
completing episodes within the areas, and by during other events in the plaza.

---------------
Gameplay Basics
---------------

Within the game there are different things to collect. Shine Sprites, the main
item as mentioned above, is used to open new levels and proceed through the
game. There is also coins. The regular sort are gold coins, which recover
health and give you a 1-Up Green Mushroom when you get 50. There are 240 blue
coins hidden everywhere in the game, which can be traded in for Shines ten
at a time. A list of their locations can be seen toward the end of the guide.
The last sort of coin are red coins, which feature in certain episodes and
once you collect all eight, the shine sprite will appear for the taking.

You have a life meter in the top right of the screen, which when fully depleted
means you lose a life and you have to start the episode over again from the
start. The other thing that appears on the screen is your water level. More
about this is discussed in the next topic...

-----
FLUDD
-----

The FLUDD pack is a water backpack that is used to aid Mario in this adventure.
There are different types of nozzles you can use with it for different
purposes. You also have a water meter in the bottom right corner of your
screen. You use water when you use the FLUDD pack and once the water is gone,
you cannot use the FLUDD. You can restore your water level via getting into
a body of water and pressing the R button and it will fill back up (or you
can collect bottles of water). You have two nozzles at a time; one is always
the squirt nozzle. You start with the hover nozzle as the alternative, which
can be replaced with another nozzle collected from a nozzle box for a short
amount of time (until the end of the episode for example). Here are the
different nozzles you can get -

Squirt Nozzle
-------------
This is the standard nozzle and is always available for you to use. It is
just like a hose that is used for cleaning and to douse objects. To use it,
press the R button and use the analog stick to direct it. You can run while
squirting by pressing the R button down slightly, and to aim better with the
squirt nozzle, go into first person and then aim with the analog stick and
use R to squirt. Other moves can be seen in the Controls & Moves section
below.

Hover Nozzle
------------
This is the default alternative nozzle, and by pressing the R button Mario can
however for a short amount of time. This is great for long jumps and squirting
objects on the ground.

Rocket Nozzle
-------------
You will need to collect this, and note this isn't available from the start.
Press and hold the R button to build up the power, and by releasing Mario
will blast up into the air.

Turbo Nozzle
------------
You will need to collect this, and note this isn't available from the start.
By pressing and holding down the R button you can dash away at high speed
across land and water. You can also jump while using this nozzle. You can keep
going as long as you have water in your tank.

--------
Swimming
--------

When in water, you can swim by holding a direction and pressing the A button.
To go toward the surface, press the A button whilst not pressing any direction.
To dive, press the B button. Also in water the life meter will change to an
air meter, which will decrease over time. When you run out of air, Mario loses
a life. To refill this meter, either get to the surface for air or collect
coins.

-----
Yoshi
-----

Yoshi, first featuring in the epic Super Mario World, is back in this game
and now in 3D! You hatch Yoshi's from eggs. To do this, you have to bring them
the fruit as shown in the thought bubble floating by the egg. Once you do that
the Yoshi will hatch. When you ride Yoshi, a Juice meter will appear in the
bottom right corner to replace the FLUDD water meter. This decreases slowly
over time, and when you spit juice. You can refill this meter by eating more
fruit. If the juice meter runs out, the Yoshi will disappear.

To spit, use the R button. It works in the same was as the FLUDD's squirt
nozzle. Yoshi's hate water and if touched, the Yoshi will disappear.

---------
Guidebook
---------

Pressing the Z button during gameplay opens up the Guidebook. This is a map
and a log of the Shines that you have collected. You can move the curser around
with the analog stick, and you can select objects on the map by pressing the A
button. There are the different areas to select (the ones that you have
visited so far), information about the Noki's and Pianta's (select their
images) and you can see your total shines and such by pressing the Shine sprite
image on the right labelled 'TOTALS'. Also when highlighting the different
areas you can see your highest coin score and how many blue coins you have
collected from that area at the bottom. To exit, press the Z or B buttons.

------
Saving
------

There are four different ways you can save your game - You can press Start
and save there, and you are prompted to save when you collect a Shine, a
blue coin or a new nozzle.

=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=

Here are the controls for just Mario -

Control Stick          - Move Mario

C Stick                - Move camera

A button               - Jump

B button               - Talk / Pick up object / Dive

-------------
Mario's Moves
-------------

Here is a list of Mario's moves -

Sidestepping
------------
Pressing and holding down the L button and using the analog stick left and
right makes Mario sidestep. Useless, but slightly funny.

Triple Jump
-----------
When running or moving, press A to jump then press jump with Mario touches the
ground for another two times (so overall three jumps) makes Mario perform a
triple jump, which is a very high jump.

Ground Pound
------------
Whilst in mid air, pressing the L button makes Mario perform a ground pound.
This is great for smashing into enemies or objects, or to land from a high
place without being hurt (if you do the move just above the ground).

Side Somersault
---------------
Holding the analog stick to the left or right and pressing the A button makes
Mario perform a side somersault. This is higher than a normal jump.

Wall Jump
---------
To jump off walls, when at a wall press the A button to jump away from it.
You can do this again from the wall opposite, so it can be very useful to scale
up to the top of adjacent buildings.

Swimming
--------
When in water, you can swim by holding a direction and pressing the A button.
To go toward the surface, press the A button whilst not pressing any direction.
To dive, press the B button.

-----------
FLUDD Moves
-----------

Here is a list of moves you can perform with the FLUDD pack (with the squirt
nozzle) -

Water Slide
-----------
Squirt some water head of you using the FLUDD pack and then slide onto it
by pressing a direction and then the B button. Hold up and Mario will now
keep sliding ahead at a very fast speed. This is great when you need to get to
places quickly (for some of the blue coins, this move is essential).

Sprinkler Squirt
----------------
Circle the analog stick and press the R button to cover the surrounding area
with water.

Back Somersault
---------------
When squirting, pressing the A button makes Mario perform a back somersault.

R button               - Spit juice

Z button               - Access Guidebook

You can do most of the same moves when riding Yoshi. Also, holding down the
A button after jumping means Yoshi can hover temporarily. Very useful!

=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=
 2.05. Power-ups
=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=

Like in all Mario games, Mario can collect items and power ups that will aid
him in his adventure. There aren't many in this game, but here is a list of
them all.

Shine Sprites - Collecting these opens up new areas and brightens up Delfino
                Plaza. There are a total of 120 shines to collect.
Golden Coins -  Collecting gold coins restores your life gauge. Also by getting
                50 coins you get an extra life. Bonus!
Blue Coins -    Blue coins, found everywhere in the game, can be traded for
                shine sprites at 10 coins a sprite. There are a total of 240
                coins in the game.
Red Coins -     Red coins, found only in certain episodes, get you shine
                sprites. Collect all 8 within an episode and the shine is yours
                for the taking.
Water Bottles - These add water to the FLUDD's water tank. A small bottle will
                replenish half a tank, and large one will fill up the whole
                tank.
1-Up Mushrooms- Often hidden, these add a life and fill up your life meter
                and your FLUDD tank.
Fruit -         Mario can kick and carry fruit, and it has many uses during
                the game. If Yoshi eats some, then his fruit meter replenishes!

                                3. WALKTHROUGH
                              ------------------
===============================================================================

This is the walkthrough and is the main feature of this FAQ.

• The walkthrough is presented with Delfino Plaza and its shines, then each
  of the games areas and their episodes and shines. This is for easy
  referencing, and you don't have to follow this order. The beauty of Super
  Mario Sunshine is that it's not that linear, and that you can complete
  whatever episodes in what order.

• In each area is the eight episodes, followed up the two secret shines and
  then the 100 Coin shine.

• The 100 Coin Shine walkthroughs are non-linear, showing all the coins that
  are in that particular episode. This gives you the freedom to choose what
  coins you want to go for. After each points is a number in brackets; this
  shows you the amount of coins found in that point. At the end is the total
  estimated coin amount for that episode.

• Throughout the walkthrough (and other sections like the Blue Coin List for
  that matter) I say terms like high jump, tall jump, double jump etc. When I
  say that I am referring to one of the taller jump techniques that is required
  throughout the game - like the Side Jump, Back Flip and Spin Jump. To find
  out how to execute these jumps, go to section 2.04.

=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=
 3.01. Delfino Airstrip
=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=

After the opening sequence, you start on the airship and you have to clear
away this mess. Head down the airstrip around the coloured paint (you can
talk to any characters with the B button) to where the Pianta's are at the end.
Collect the FLUDD pack that is next to the surprised yellow Pianta. A movie
will now play, giving you an introduction to the FLUDD pack and how to use it.
After the movie, try it out on the M graffiti on the water tank to your right.
Use the first person mode for easier aiming (press the Y button).

After you have mad a mess around, jump into the pool of water and fill up your
tank with the R button. Go back to the mess on the airstrip and spray the
mass of slime located in the center of it until it a slime covered piranha
plant emerges! Spray him when its mouth is open three times and he is done for.
For better aiming, go into the first person view (Y button) and take him down.
Once he is defeated, the mess clears away and you can collect the games first
shine!

After this, a cutscene will cut in showing you that Mario is being held
responsible for messing up the island. It is your job to clear it up, and to
find out who is behind all this!

-------------------------
Returning to the airstrip
-------------------------

Once you have completed the game (defeated the last boss) then you can return
back to the airstrip area. Collect 10 coins from around the plaza and go to
the bell tower next to the blue coin hut (South West corner) and talk to the
dancing Pianta next to the boat. He will take you to the airstrip. There, go
onward and left to the nozzle boxes. Collect the turbo nozzle from the gray
box and ground pound the red button to start the red coin challenge (2:00
minutes). Race down and through the doors of the building round to the opposite
side, and you will get the first coin as you go through (1). Follow the coin
trail into the sea, and keep following it, where the coins will be found
above the first boat (2); above the second boat (3); near the end of the
runway in the sea (4); around the buoys (5); under the bridge (6); and on last
two are found on the runway (7,8).

Once you have all eight coins, then the shine will appear on the runway.

Blue Coin
---------
There is a blue coin located in the building. Enter it, then locate the ice
cube and melt it, where the blue coin will be revealed. Note that this counts
as part of the total for the Delfino Plaza blue coins.

=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=
 3.02. Delfino Plaza
=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=

------------------------
At the start of the game
------------------------

After the cutscene, you start your mission to clean up the island. You may
notice that half of the plaza is covered in shadow; the more shines you
manage to get, the more lighter it becomes.

Go onward along the market stalls, and turn right at the corner, where you
will come across an area covered in brown slime. Start clearing this away,
and spray the lump of slime in the middle when you come to it. You will also
encounter enemies here, coloured blobs that appear from the slime. Either jump
on them or spray them to kill them. When they flash white, they are about to
jump at you, so be aware of this. Once you have sprayed the mass of slime
enough, another piranha plant will come out from it. Like before, spray him
in the mouth three times and he is over and done with. Remember to keep an eye
out for those coloured blobs too.

The Grant Pianta Statue will arise again, carrying the Shadow Mario! He will
kidnap Princess Peach and run off. Chase after him - go round the corner and
along the market stalls the see him. It is vital that you spray and run at the
same time to finish him fairly quickly (run and hold down the R trigger lightly
to do this). Keep chasing and spraying, and after enough watering, he will
drop the Princess. Approach him, and he will run back to the statue. Go back
there and he will paint an M on the statue itself. Spray this to activate the
portal to Bianco Hills; jump in to enter!

------
Events
------

• 3 Shines - The boathouse to the west is buried under the slime. Defeat the
  piranha there (6 squirts to the mouth this time) to unlock the entrance to
  Ricco Harbour, and the Blue Coin trading shop.

• 5 Shines - The lighthouse next to the beach is submerged under more slime.
  Defeat the piranha here (again, 6 squirts) and the entrance to Gelato
  Beach is unlocked.

• 10 Shines - Go to the cannon at the North West shore and follow Shadow Mario
  to Pinna Park. Unlocks the said area.

• 20 Shines - The entrance to Noki Bay will open up. This is located in front
  of the Shine Gate, where there is a beam of light on the Shine mosaic. Stand
  on here and look at the sun in the first person view to enter the level.

• 30 Shines - Shadow Mario will appear by the blue coin hut, holding a
  turbo nozzle. Chase and spray, then collect the nozzle after and save.

• 30 Shines - Shadow Mario will appear on the rooftop behind the jail /
  courthouse holding the rocket nozzle. Chase and spray, then collect the
  nozzle and save after.

• Completing Pinna Park Episode 4 - Shadow Mario will appear in the plaza,
  holding a Yoshi Egg (behind the grand Pianta statue). Chase and spray him.
  He will leave the egg behind once he is defeated. Make him hatch (give him
  the fruit displayed in the thought bubble (the fruits can be found on the
  eastern market stalls) and then you can save the game and use Yoshi!

• Completing every Episode 7 - Upon completing all Episode 7's in all the
  levels opens up the entrance to Corona Mountain. The area will be flooded
  at this time, so use the umbrella to the left of the Shine Gate and hover
  over to the green ledges behind the Shine Gate to reach the cave, which leads
  to the Corona Mountain area.

------
Shines
------

1
  Go onto the beach in the East of the plaza. Go to the upper section of the
  beach (near the lighthouse) and spray the ground around there. A shine image
  is hidden on the beach and one it is sprayed enough a shine will appear at
  the green stacks out to sea next to the lighthouse.

2
  Go to the lighthouse and go out to sea, where there a loads of green stacks.
  Hover between the tops of each and enter the pipe at the end to enter a
  special stage. Here you have to slide down to the bottom of this giant slide
  to get the shine. Remember you can jump as you go, so do this on some of the
  gaps. Also when you reach the chequered stairs area halfway down that goes
  left, take a sharp turn left just as you reach it otherwise you will mostly
  likely fall to your doom. Collect the shine at the bottom to finish.

3
  Go to the island out to the east of the beach (it has a tree and a beach on)
  and locate the golden bird that circles round the island. Spray this bird
  until to turns into a shine, which is located on the green stacks next to the
  lighthouse.

4
  Enter the cafe to the left of the Shine Gate and talk to the Pianta inside.
  You have to smash all the crates here within 30 seconds. Simply leap above
  them and ground pound. You can take more than one out at a time by ground
  pounding in the middle of two crates that are side-by-side. You will receive
  the shine when you complete the challenge.

5
  Once you have done shine 4 (above) re-enter  the cafe and talk to the Pianta
  again where you can reattempt the challenge. However this time the crates are
  stacked up on top of each other and you can use a side jump or back flip to
  get onto the top of the stack of crates, then ground pound them all. Once
  you have done all four stacks, the shine is yours.

6
  Once you have got the turbo nozzle, equip it and smash through the doors of
  the building to the left of the Grand Pianta statue, where a shine is located
  inside.

7
  Once you have got the turbo nozzle, equip it and go to the jail / courthouse
  building in the North East of the plaza, and smash through the doors between
  the two Pianta's to enter a special stage. Here, use the turbo nozzle and
  race onward. Jump over the gaps as you go. Make sure that you jump at the
  very end of each ledge (look for the red line as an indicator). On the final
  jump, you need to jump at the _very_ last minute to get the shine.

8
  Clean the bell in the tower to the left of the Grand Pianta statue. To do
  this climb onto the nearby rope and bounce up to the building next to it,
  and on the ledge spin jump and hover onto the top of this small tower. From
  there you can clean the bell by going into first person and spraying it. The
  shine, once you have cleaned the bell, will appear inside the tower. To get
  it enter the manhole that is on top of the building opposite the tower and
  walk underground across and into the tower.

9
  Go to the west side of the plaza, to where the river meets the sea. Here, at
  the arch, is a hole in the ceiling (there is a coin there if you look). You
  get into this hole by riding the boat that comes through here and jumping up
  into it. You will then enter a special stage. You have to get 8 red coins
  in this pinball board like game. You through the arch and go right, into the
  base of this chute and jump on the ejector there to be boosted up into the
  play area, on the right. You then fall into one of the compartments, and go
  round the back and appear at the start again. However if you miss the
  compartments you will fall straight to the bottom, fall, and lose a life.

  You will get three coins on the way up the chute. There are coins in the
  top box, the two opposite each other at the top left and right, and also
  at the bottom left and right compartments, making up the 8 coins. The bottom
  central one (the one with loads of pins above it) has no coins. You can
  influence where you go here fairly easily, making this stage much easier.

  To get to the bottom compartments, launch out from the ejector directly in
  the middle and don't touch any directions. You will land on the pins in the
  center of the board, and from here, you can hover over to the left or right
  bottom compartments. Holding left after launch lands you in the top left
  compartment, and holding right lands you in the top middle compartment. To
  reach the top right compartment, you need to hold right and then hover over
  after launch. Once you get all eight, then the shine will appear in the
  central lower compartment. Don't press an directions after launch to land
  on the above pins, then drop down and collect the shine.

10
  Clean the bell in the tower to the right of the Great Pianta Statue. Get
  the rocket nozzle and equip it, then go over and rocket up the tower and land
  next to it. Spray and clean it, and then get onto the top of the tower (you
  may have to rocket from a nearby building to do this) and then rocket up
  on top to get the shine that is high above.

11
  Rocket up onto the top of the North East lighthouse with the rocket nozzle.
  Now rocket up again whilst on top and at the highest point, ground pound and
  if done correctly you should smash the top of the lighthouse and release the
  shine. Now rocket up again to collect it.

12
  Rocket up to the shine in the Shine Gate using the rocket nozzle and clean
  it to release the shine. Now rocket onto the top of the Shine Gate and rocket
  up again to get the shine high above.

13
  Get a normal golden coin and go over the cafe area that is to the left of
  the Shine Gate. Use the umbrella tops here to bounce up on to the cafe
  rooftops, where a Pianta is standing. Face him straight on and talk to him,
  where you have to pay one coin for him to throw you. He will chuck you
  directly behind him and into a building, where a shine sprite is located.

14
  Equip the rocket nozzle, and go to the North West of the plaza. From the
  cannon, swim out to sea along the cliff and rocket up to the trees above.
  Go across the trees to reach a ledge with a pipe - enter this pipe to go to
  a special stage. In this special stage  you have to collect eight red coins.
  However there is no way to refill your FLUDD tank, so you need to conserve
  water as much as you can. Here are the locations, and a handy ASCII map to
  give you more of an idea where to find them -

  1 - Spray the burning Pianta that is running around the trees and boxes area,
      and then talk to him.
  2 - On the small block to the side of the area (see map for location.).
  3 - Go to far corner and fall down the hole next to the watermelon block. The
      coin is down here (see map for location).
  4 - Go to the tallest block (4 on the map) to make the red bird fly away.
      Now go onto the top of the tree closest to this block and go into first
      person view and spray the bird until it changes into a red coin.
  5,6-Labelled B on the map, these are black enemies that you need to spray
      with water from a far to startle, then jump on their bonces to get the
      coin. There are two in this area, check the map for locations.
  7,8-Labelled P on the map, these are pink enemies that when you jump on them
      give you a coin. There are two in this area, check the map for locations.

  +--------------------------------------+

  The shine will appear once you have collected all eight red coins, on the
  block to the right of the diagram above (next to the 4 on the diagram).
  Remember not to waste much water throughout and you will be fine here.

15
  Completing the game (defeating the final boss that is at the end of the
  Corona Mountain area) rewards you with a shine. See the end of the
  walkthrough if you are having trouble with this one.

16
  100 Coin Shine. Like throughout the levels in the game, collecting 100 coins
  here bags you the 100 Coin Shine. Thankfully, this is one of the easiest
  areas in the game to get 100 coins in, and also has 2 methods. One is just
  getting the coins from the plaza itself, and the other (a more cheaper way)
  is to get them from the airstrip. I will go through both methods and you
  can decide with is better for you.

  METHOD 1
  --------
  An absolute must in this level is to explore the sewer system fully.
  When you begin the area, there is a sewer lid right in front of you (in front
  of the Bianco Hills / Pianta statue). Butt slam it to enter the sewer, then
  follow these directions - (Note at any point you get confused, follow 
  Squit100's fantastic underground map on the Super Mario Sunshine FAQ list on
  GameFAQs) -

  Forward, then left, the next right, round the corner. Collect the 9 coins in 
  this area, then go north to another area with 9 coins. Go back to the last 
  area, and exit straight ahead. Take a left, right at the end, round the
  corner and collect the coins. Go back round the corner to where the sewer
  lid is, and go straight on. At the end go left round the corner, then the
  next right. Check the area for 9 coins, then another one that links to it
  for another nine. Now back to the straight, carry on down it. Turn right and
  collect the line of coins further up. Then go back, and escape from using
  the sewer lid at the corner. 

  Now make your way to where the cannon is where you go to Pinna Park. Next to 
  here is a another sewer lid, enter it via butt slamming. Walk down it
  to get 9 coins that are in a line. Now exit at the next lid, where you should
  be on a building next to a crate. Drop down the side nearest the sea. Run
  down towards where the cannon is - except on the way stop after you hover
  over the canal gap, where there is a another sewer lid. Enter it, and walk
  down it. Turn on the next left, and left again, and go straight ahead.
  Collect the coins to the end of the passage, then turn 180 degrees, and turn
  down the next left for another line of coins.

  Now make your way out of the sewer system, and to the beach next to the light
  house and market stalls. On the beach there is an umbrella on it with no one
  underneath it. Stand there, then take a few steps to the sea, then a few
  towards the lighthouse. Butt Slam, and if you are in the right position, you
  should go into a secret sewer. Here are 8 coins and an extra life. Overall,
  by searching through all the sewer system you will get most of the coins you
  need. (99)

  To get the final coins, walk out to sea from the beach and collect the 6 
  coins. 

  SHINE LOCATION - It's located over the platform in the sea, opposite the
  Pianta statue, you will see it. To get to it, swim out to it, then either use
  the rocket FLUDD pack, or get on one of the boats that come near by, then
  hover onto the platform.

  METHOD 2 - (NOTE - THIS CAN ONLY BE DONE AFTER THE GAME IS COMPLETE)
  --------
  This method involves going into the airstrip to get the 100 coins you need
  for the shine. To start off, you need 10 coins for the boat to the airstrip.
  The easiest was to find 10 coins is to either get them from the underground
  system, or by going to the beach opposite the market stalls. Here, go out
  into the sea to collect the ring of six coins and root the secret sewer
  place for coins (the location is described near the end of method 1).

  Once you have your 10 coins, make your way to the airstrip (the boat near the
  blue coin trade hut and speak to the dancing Pianta in shades). 

  There, run and collect the grey FLUDD pack over on the left. Using the speed
  pack, follow the trail of gold coins down towards the building and through
  it. When you are through the other side, stop and look down the runway. You
  see an obscene amount of coins and orange baddies. Collect the line of coins.
  Then kill all the orange baddies, by jumping on their heads, and be sure to
  collect the coin they each leave behind (there are 14 baddies here, 14
  coins). 

  Now you will resume that coin path to the right of those water tanks. Using 
  the speed pack, follow the path of coins, until you come back onto the
  airstrip. If you miss some coins (which you are bound to) repeat the path or
  go swim for them. You can also get another 2 coins by washing the M
  signatures off the tanks on the airstrip. (144)

  SHINE LOCATION - On top of the tall water tank on the airstrip. To get there,
  side jump or back flip onto the smaller tank next to it, then side jump or
  back flip onto the tall water tank.

  OVERALL COIN TOTAL - 144

  (Note - After collecting the 100 coin shine on the airstrip, you will return
  to the plaza, and you will still have the same amount of coins. So if you
  want to max out the coin record for the plaza to 999 coins, just repeat
  getting the coins from the airstrip).

17
  I recommend that you stock up on lives before attempting this one, because
  it takes a while and is quite tough. Hatch and ride Yoshi over to the canal
  mouth on the west side of the plaza, and wait until a boat goes out. Jump on
  the boat, ride it over to the island and jump across onto it. While you wait
  for the next boat, grab a fruit from the tree to keep Yoshi going and when
  it arrives jump across onto it. Ride it over to the girder structure by
  Grand Pianta Statue (it is still out to sea, of course) and eat the fruit
  here to keep Yoshi alive. A final boat will eventually come round the other
  side, which will take you to the island off the eastern coast. Spit Yoshi's
  juice out at the moving yellow slime on the pipe, and enter.

  Out of the frying pan, and into the fire (or however that saying goes). If
  you thought that getting here was tough, then you will have a hard time here.
  In this special stage, you have to ride the lily pad down this river channel
  and collect the red coins as you go. You move the lily pad in the same way
  as you would normally, but remember that you are constantly going in the
  direction of the water flow. It's very hard, and there is a high chance that
  you will miss most of them. Thankfully, once at the end you can get back to
  the start area via the red sides of the channel. This takes a while as you
  will have to walk back (otherwise Mario will most probably kick the bucket)
  but it's worth it to get an extra shot of those few coins that you missed.
  After you get all eight of the red coins (and after a few trips back and
  forth, I imagine) then the shine will appear at the end. Phew!

To unlock this area, chase Shadow Mario at the start of the game after you
have stopped him from kidnapping Princess Peach.

------------------------------------
Episode 1 - Road to the Big Windmill
------------------------------------

Head up the path, and on the decent, slide down on your belly and collect the
coins as you go. Use either the rope or the log to cross the river. Now jump
down onto the path to the right and follow it round the white dividing wall.
A simple jump to the head will dispose of those weird bouncing enemies you may
encounter. At the end of the path is a giant wooden wheel that blocks your
way; jump on the green ledge and then onto one of the parts that stick out
to ride over it to the other side of the wall. Carry on following the path
and you will encounter more brown slime; take a left at the edge of the lake
and clear the slime away to reach the origin of those slime balls; another
pile of slime. Spray this until a piranha plant comes from it. Again, spray
him when the mouth is open and keep an eye out for those coloured blobs. After
three mouthfuls of water, he is defeated and a shine is left for you to
collect!

-----------------------------------
Episode 2 - Down with Petey Piranha
-----------------------------------

Follow the path and cross the river. The door through the dividing wall on
the right is now open, so proceed through it. Go onward and tackle the slime
here. Go left and head toward the giant windmill (so you are going past where
the last piranha boss was located) and at the bridge, jump and hover over the
gap. Take the twisting path that goes up and around the windmill. Spray the
slime on the ground to clear a way for you, and avoid the slime balls as they
roll down (they cannot be destroyed, so just be out of their way). When you
get nearer the top, gaps will be in your way - jump and hover over the first
two. On the third, with vines also in your way, jump and hover out away from
the windmill, around the vines and back onto the path. Carry on a little to
the end of the path.

Talk to the Pianta if you want, and then jump onto one of the platforms on
the end of the windmill propellers. What a view! Ride it to the top and jump
to the top of the windmill, where Petey is sitting. The roof caves in, and you
have to fight him inside the windmill!

When he opens his mouth, continually spray it will water until he fall back.
Jump onto his stomach and perform a ground pound to injure him. Do this three
times and he defeated. If you don't deal with him when his mouth his open, he
will spew out a load of slime, which you don't want. Also watch out for the
small coloured blobs as you go. After he is defeated, he leaves behind a shine
left for the taking.

------------------------------------
Episode 3 - The Hillside Cave Secret
------------------------------------

Head up the path and cross the river. Go right through the archway in the
dividing wall, and turn left to the small side of the lake that's left of the
bridge. Jump onto the rope here and travel across it. Head across all the
platforms and ropes to the ledge at the opposite side. Go across the ledge and
do a backflip/side jump onto the rope above, then into the cave in the hill
next to here. You enter a special stage.

Jump up the moving blocks (stay in the middle as much as you can) onto the
green platform at the top. Ground pound the right nail three times for a
1-Up Green Mushroom, and the left one for a coin. On the orange blocks, take
your time when crossing them - you may find it useful to adjust the camera
angle to a suitable position here. At the large rotating blocks after, pop the
camera to an angle over head to you can see Mario all the time, and move past
each block as it goes underneath. Jump onto the stars as the point is facing
you, and be sure to collect the 1-Up Green Mushroom above the second star.
Run and jump off the point of the star and go get the shine!

-----------------------------------------
Episode 4 - Red Coins of Windmill Village
-----------------------------------------

You will have to get eight coins to get the shine here, and note that it only
takes place on the left side of the dividing wall (the one will the buildings).
Go up the path and cross over the river. Go to the left, where the two
buildings are, and jump up the ropes that are in between them and collect the
red coin (1). Jump up to the top rope and head right on the roof, where there
will be another red coin (2). Jump over to the propeller platform, then over
onto the top of the dividing wall, and grab the coin on the arch (3). Run
across the top of the wall and get the coin in the archway next to the bells
(4). Continue to follow the wall round and you will reach the very top area,
and go across to get another red coin at the end (5). A whirlwind enemy might
bother you at this point; to avoid its attacks, jump as soon as you hear it
spinning.

Head across the rope and jump over the red wheel along the way, and there is
a red coin on the other side (6). The next red coin is situated between the
two sails next to here; jump and hover over to the nearest sail and land on the
plank that is attached underneath. Now jump and hover over to the plank on the
other sail, collecting the red coin along the way (7). Note that you can move
the wooden plank by spraying the sails with water, so if you are having trouble
do this. Now jump and hover over to the building with the two towers, then
wall jump between them to get the level's final coin (8). The shine will appear
on the tallest platform, which is next to the river. To get here, jump over to
the tallest tower on the building and take the rope attached up.

--------------------------------------
Episode 5 - Petey Piranha Strikes Back
--------------------------------------

Head up the path and over the river. Stay in this area (on this side of the
dividing wall) and head to the edge, by the cliff wall, where a mass of slime
is. Clean it all up to free a trapped Pianta. Clean him off, then stand behind
him and talk to him so he throws you up to the cliff ledge above. Clear the
slime, and go right to the small ledge and jump up to the higher left ledge
and onto the one above. Clean this area of slime, and go to the fence at the
top. Run into one of those pink creatures; it will stick on your nozzle, and
you can fire these when pressing the R trigger. Go to the part of the fence
that's broken (the middle) and fire it at the sleeping Petey opposite in the
first person view.

He will wake up and take off to the area behind you. To defeat him, spray
water or fire one of the pink things at him when he is hovering still to make
him fall to the ground. Now approach him and do the same as you did the last
time you fought him; spray a continuous flow of water into his mouth when its
open, then ground pound his stomach as he lies there. Watch out for his new
moves though; a headbutt and a tornado projectile. These are easy to dodge,
but I still recommend that you keep at a reasonable distance to avoid getting
hit. Once you ground pound him, he takes off again. Do this three times and
he's a goner, leaving a shine for you to collect.

----------------------------------------
Episode 6 - The Secret of the Dirty Lake
----------------------------------------

As always, head up the path, across the river and through the doorway in the
right wall. Go onward here and left a little to the lake, and jump on the lilly
there. Face backwards and fire water out of the standard squirting nozzle to
move the lily across the lake. You are going to the cave that is behind the
windmill. The lilies will disintegrate after a short while, so board another
that is nearby. When you get to the cave, head across the logs and high jump
into the cave, and enter the special stage.

Walk ahead and observe the blue and red platforms. They alternate in rotating,
so jump onto one of the colours as it has just finished spinning, then onto the
opposite colour as that has just finished spinning and so on to get through
this section. Jump and over the spinning star (collect the 1-Up Green Mushroom
on the way) and wall jump off the blue wall onto the cube. If don't manage it,
then use the orange pad by the arrow below as a means of getting back up.
When the cube takes you across, stay in the middle of it at all times as it
rotates (no jumping is advised here). Jump off at the yellow area once it ends,
then head past these triangles when the one nearest just passes you. The cube
after will take you up, and like the other one, it will rotate as it goes.
Stay in the middle to avoid falling to your doom. Try and grab the 1-Up Green
Mushroom on the way also (it arrives at the left hand side - look out for the
shadow).

The last section is more of those alternating, rotating red and blue platforms.
Start off with the red platform when its close enough and when it has just
done its rotation, and work your way over. Don't rush and don't worry about
backtracking if you are stuck and you will do fine. A shine awaits you at the
end.

-------------------------------------
Episode 7 - Shadow Mario on the Loose
-------------------------------------

Very easy. Simply chase him and squirt water while doing so until he falls.
If you manage to lose him, then check on top of some of the buildings on the
left side of the divide - he sometimes goes up there, and listen out for his
music when you are close. Approach him when he is felled, and shine it up!

-------------------------------------
Episode 8 - The Red Coins of the Lake
-------------------------------------

This red coin episode is on the right side of the dividing wall this time,
the one with the windmill and the lake. Head up the path, across the river
and through the door on the right in the wall. Go onward to the lake and left
a little, and go on to the lily. Take the lily out into the lake and grab
the coin above it (1). Head back to where you came from, and go to the other
side of the bridge and go across the ropes and platforms across the lake.
Get the red coin on the way (2). At the other side, go onto and across the
green ledge to just past the arrow signpost, and jump onto the propeller
platform nearby. Cross the rope and grab the coin here (3). Jump off about 
halfway onto the propeller platforms to the left (next to the trees) and get
the red coin on the rope here too (4).

Side jump or back flip back onto the long rope and continue to the platform
at the end. From this point onward, you may be bothered by those whirlwind
enemies; jump just when you hear them spin to avoid their attack. Anyway, carry
on up another rope for another coin (5), and left at the end across the small
rope. At this platform covered by the Pikey, either lure it out so it lies
flat ready for a good ground poundin', or skip out this platform by hovering
straight over to the rope on the left that connects to it. Go across this
rope for a coin (6), and the final rope of this circuit has a coin situated
high above it (7).

To get the final coin, do high jump and hover over to the platform nearest the
windmill. The coin is over this rope here (8). The shine appears in the alcove
in the face of the windmill. From here hover over or travel up the windmill
then use one of the propeller platforms, then hover across to the alcove to
get this shine. Phew!

--------------
Secret Shine 1
--------------

Complete Episode 3 - The Hillside Cave Secret first, then enter reattempt it
again. The special stage will now have a red button, and when ground pounded,
a red coin challenge will begin, giving you 1 minute to get all eight coins.

Grab the coin on the left as you go up these moving blocks (1). Four coins
are now situated at the corners of the orange blocks area; use the hover
nozzle to easily make it across to each one (2-5). The remaining three coins
are on the three stars either side of the cube area; perform a high jump and
hover over to each one (6-8). Once you have them all, the new shine will
appear at the end of the level.

--------------
Secret Shine 2
--------------

Complete Episode 6 - The Secret of the Dirty Lake first and do the level again.
In the special stage, ground pound the red button to start a red coin challenge
where you have to collect all eight red coins in 1:30 minutes.

Hover over and collect the red coin that is above the red platforms (1) and
get the next one above the spinning star (2). Hover over to the cube, and to
save time, you can jump off earlier and hover to the other side as it moves.
Collect the red coin in between the triangles (3) and proceed on to the cube.
As it ascends, watch the shadows to determine the locations of the next two
coins (4,5). The final three are at the last area of blue and red platforms -
two are at opposite corners, and the other in the middle (6-8). Use the hover
nozzle to make this part easier. The new shine will be at the end once you get
them all.

--------------
100 Coin Shine
--------------

The best episode to get 100 coins is on Episode 8 - The Red Coins of the Lake.
This isn't that tricky to get coins in, and it's very possible to more than 80
coins before going up the rope system that is over the lake.

• Around the level are baddies disguised as plants. They are hidden in the 
  ground on their own or in a circle of plants, and when you approach them they
  spring up and attack you. Jump on them for one coin, but better still, spray
  them into a wall to get 3 coins. They are located around the buildings by the
  river, or around the grey dividing wall. (10+)

• Around the level you may notice a circle of plants with pink leaves. After
  you have disposed of the baddies disguised in those circle, stand in the 
  middle and do a 360 spray. This will spray all the plants so they open up, 
  and when they all open up, you will receive 6 coins. There are 3 circles 
  before the dividing wall, and 2 after it. These coins are essential to 
  get. (30)

• Spraying one of the beehives gives you a coin after it falls (the beehive
  is located on a tree after the dividing wall). (1)

• Getting Yoshi and eating the bees at the beehives at the location above
  earns you a coin per bee. There are 3 to a beehive, 2 beehives, 6 bees.
  To get extra coins, fire Yoshi's spit at the beehives until it falls. This
  will add another coin, and a load of bees will follow you. I think its best
  to run around in circles and tap B so you avoid the bees better, but there is
  still a chance that you will get thrown off still. There are about 10 bees
  here but you need to collect the coins quickly as they disappear fast. Now do
  that same with the other bee hive on the other tree to get more coins. Yay.

  Yoshi is found at the start of the level to your right; make note of what
  fruit he wants, then go to where the beehives are and there fruits on the
  ground around that area. Grab the fruit he wants and go back to the egg to
  get Yoshi. Be sure not to go into any water when you are riding him...
  but you knew that, right? Thanks to 'Standwielder_Jotaro' (a.k.a - Zaro)
  for this information. (30)

• Spraying the tall propeller platforms around the dividing wall may give you a
  coin - not all of them do though. Spray the rotor part until it spins really
  fast and until a coin appears on top. (2+)

• There are black enemies with yellow petals on top. To kill these, spray them
  from a distance when they are not buried in the ground. When they are dazed,
  jump on top of them to get a coin. (3+)

• There are several standing caterpillars (Pikey's) around the level - wait
  until they fall over and then jump on them - this results in a coin per
  baddie. (2+)

• After the dividing wall there are several trees, with black baddies on them.
  Some of these trees have a coin on top them already, whereas some others you
  have to spray the centers to get a coin. There are 5 trees that produce the
  coins here (5)

• The following load of coins are located on top of the lake, in sets of 4.
  On set is on the right side of the lake, another is to the right of the 
  windmill, around the back is another set, and on the left side of the
  windmill is another set. These are easy coins to get and I HIGHLY recommend
  that you collect them. :P (12)

• There is a line of four under the mesh like bridge over the lake (on the 
  way to the windmill). To get under there, bounce off one of the ropes below.
  (4)

• Over the lake is a system of ropes that connect some of the high platforms
  together, with many of the ropes having coins above them. To get up there,
  go to the ledge on the right side of the lake (where the first special stage
  level in this world is) and use the nearby platforms and ropes to make your
  way up there (towards the big windmill if that helps). There are 25 coins
  here, but they are tricky to get (especially with those ANNOYING wind
  baddies that tend to knock you off the platforms), so I would advise you to
  seek out the other coins first. (25+)

• SHINE LOCATION - It's on one of the windmill platforms next to the grey
  dividing wall. APPROX COIN TOTAL - 160+

 3.04. Ricco Harbour
=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=

To unlock this area, get three shines and head over to the boathouse to the
west of Delfino Plaza, which is buried under the slime. Defeat the piranha
there (6 squirts to the mouth this time) to unlock the entrance to Ricco
Harbour, and also the Blue Coin trading shop.

-------------------------------------
Episode 1 - Gooper Blooper Breaks Out
-------------------------------------

Run ahead to the ramp that leads to the red and black ship. Do a high jump
and a hover onto the mash cage ahead, and collect the four coins here. Go
onward to the arrow signpost, and to the ledge that's right of it. Jump over to
the moving platform that is carried by the crane, and get off at the other
side. Jump onto either meshed wall and climb to the top. Jump on to the
ceiling to hang from it, and swing right, then onward and head through the
door at the far left, by hanging on to the door and pressing the B button -
you will now flip through to the other side. Hang onto the ceiling again,
and drop down onto the ledge ahead and below.

Hover onto the moving platform and then onto the platform after with Pianta's
on. Jump down onto the yellow submarine next to here, and spray the jumping
enemies to turn them into stepping stones, enabling you to cross over to the
other side safely. Collect the three coins here. Wait until the crane assisted
platform next to here is low enough, then jump onto it and ride it up. Jump
under the mesh, collect the coins and drop down onto this area here. Dispose
of the three octopuses by jumping on their noggins and refill your water tank
at the fountain. Head down this area toward the coloured crates that are at
the end, and grab the tentacle that is sticking out one of them with the
B button. Hold on to it and pull it back until it snaps off, to reveal the
cause of the oil in this area - Gooper Blooper!

To defeat this oversized Blooper, wait until it attacks you with its tentacles
and grab one of them shortly afterward before he withdraws them. Drag it back
until it snaps. If you having trouble grabbing hold of them, then you can
jump on the tip of it to flatten it and hold it still for a short while.
Snap off its tentacles at the front, then spray the oil around its mouth to
clean it off. Grab hold of the cork in its mouth and pull it back until he is
injured. If you get hit while you do this, then take out another tentacle or
two and try again.

After hurting it and pulling the cork out, it will come back and spit some more
oil out. Clean away the oil if its in the way, and repeat what you just did
to say goodbye to Glooper Blooper! He will leave a shine in his wake.

----------------------------------
Episode 2 - Blooper Surfing Safari
----------------------------------

Turn around and head across the logs to the left and onto the wooden platform.
There is a choice of three bloopers here; the green one of the slowest,
medium is average, and the pink is the fastest. I recommend that you choose
the green blooper for now, so you can get used to the controls and
handling, so choose a faster blooper later when you feel more comfortable.
Anyway, to ride one, simply walk into the one of your choice. You automatically
accelerate; to go slightly quicker hold Up, and to go slightly slower hold
Down. The A button allows you to jump. Another thing to note is that when
you hit an obstacle, you die instantly, so watch where you are going.

Anyway, following the coin trail to reach an oil surrounded cave at the other
side of the area. Inside is a racing course, where you have to race against
time to get a shine. Jump onto a blooper and away you go. Remember not to
touch any walls or obstacles, and that going on dry land slows you down to a
crawl. The course itself isn't that hard; after the first corner watch out for
the two rectangle blocks (the first is on the inside of the corner so take the
outside), watch out for the moving block on the forth corner and the large
rectangle that is on the straight after that, and use the dry land at some
corners (notably the last area of twists and turns) if you are going to fast.
There is also a shortcut you can try out - after the revolving walls and the
two ducking blocks, after you go round the corner you can jump over the wall
that is ahead. Be sure to jump when you are still on the water, and not on
the land just before the wall otherwise you're brown bread. ;) Check the
below ASCII for a better insight into this short cut.

                    --------
   ----------------/        \----

Simply completing the course gets you a shine. If you having real problems,
then change the colour of the blooper that you are riding. You will get the
shine when you return back to the starting area.

----------------------------------
Episode 3 - The Caged Shine Sprite
----------------------------------

Go right onto the grey ship. Get to the other side by either riding the crane
across underneath, or by a high jump and hover onto the girders above. On the
other side, dispose of the octopus and jump on to the moving platform. Jump
on to the mesh wall and climb up to the door at the top (watch out for the
yellow spider as you go) and flip through to the other side. Jump on to the
crane when its arrives, and onto the mesh opposite, where you climb right and
up to another door which you flip though. Jump onto another crane, and jump of
at the other end onto the platform. Take the two octopuses out and take the
platform at the end upward to the blue girder system on the right.

On the girders, follow the sign posts and squirt the octopuses off as you come
across them. At the end is a somewhat clear white girder that extends to the
roof of a building; go across and destroy all the crates to the right. This
reveals a manhole cover, so if you fall off the girders later you can take the
sewer from the manhole at the start or by the red and black bridge up to here.
A handy shortcut. Anyway, head back to the blue girder system and turn right
and go onward to the arrow signpost and a crate. Use this crate to jump onto
the crane. Ride it to the opposite side and jump onto the mesh wall. Head
through the two doors and you will reach a platform. Go across the girder here,
and jump over the gaps as you go. If you fall between the gaps then wall jump
to head back up.

At the end of the girder are two octopuses. Go left and you will notice a
nozzle box; this gives you the rocket nozzle, which you don't really need
at this point (and the hover nozzle is more useful in a moment) so just ignore
it. Use the white trampoline here up to the girder above, and go left at the
end and up another two trampolines. Now follow the girder round and take the
final two trampolines up and into the yellow cage, when the shine is being
held.

-------------------------------------
Episode 4 - The Secret of Ricco Tower
-------------------------------------

Head onto the red and black ship ahead, and jump on top of the mesh cage. Go
onward and use high jumps to reach onto the ship's black funnel. From here,
turn towards the tower to your left and perform a high jump and hover over to
the plank that is nearest the tower entrance. It is easily makeable, trust me.
Now jump across and enter the tower, where a special stage will begin.

This stage is constructed mainly of rotating platforms. Stay on the middle of
them at all times (so the edge is in the middle when you cross over) to avoid
falling off to your doom. When jumping between them, make sure that the angles
are near enough flat to make it easier. After this wall jump between
the two walls to bag your ass a 1-Up Green Mushroom. The green cogs after are
treated the same as the other platforms - stay in the middle as much as
possible. However these move from side to side slowly, so make sure that they
are close enough before jumping.

The nails on the green platform contain just a few coins, so I wouldn't bother
ground pounding them. The final stretch consists of those rotating platforms
that you saw at the beginning, but at somewhat horrendous angles. Follow the
plain of staying in the middle and you should be alright. You may find
adjusting the camera angles will help you on some of them. The shine, as per
usual, is at the end of the level.

-----------------------------------
Episode 5 - Glooper Blooper Returns
-----------------------------------

Glooper Blooper is back for another ass kicking in this episode. This first
thing you have to do is head over to the helipad, where he is located at. The
easiest and simplest way to get there is by swimming. Jump into the drink on
the right side of the red and black ship and swim straight onward past the
yellow submarine, where you will come across the base of the helipad. Head
across the logs here and grab the rocket nozzle in the middle. To use the
rocket nozzle, hold down the R trigger until it has fully charged and let go
to be propelled straight upward. Do this standing where you are and you will
hang on to the mesh ceiling above. Collect the coins if you happen to be low
on health, and make your way to either end and flip through the door with the
A button to arrive on the helipad.

Glooper is the same as when you first fought him, but with a new attack up his
sleeve; he spins around in circles, swinging the tentacles along also. Simply
jump over these to avoid being hit. If you forgot how to beat him, then here
is what to do - wait until it attacks you with its tentacles and grab one of
them shortly afterward before he withdraws them. Drag it back until it snaps.
If you having trouble grabbing hold of them, then you can jump on the tip of
it to flatten it and hold it still for a short while. Snap off its tentacles
at the front, then spray the oil around its mouth to clean it off.

Grab hold of the cork in its mouth and pull it back until he is injured. If
you get hit while you do this, then take out another tentacle or two and try
again. After hurting it and pulling the cork out, it will come back and spit
some more oil out. Clean away the oil if its in the way, and repeat what you
just did to say goodbye to Glooper Blooper! Another shine for the collection!

----------------------------------
Episode 6 - Red Coins in the Water
----------------------------------

Another Blooper surfing episode, however this time you have to collect eight
red coins on the waters of the harbour within 2 minutes! Go over to the
wooden Blooper platform behind you on the left, and choose the Blooper that you
most prefer. Remember that green is slow, yellow is of a medium speed and
pink is the fastest. I recommend that you take green, as you will have more
control of the Blooper to collect the coins with (they are quite easy to miss)
and you will have more than enough time anyway.

As you being, look out for the start of the coin trail to your left, near the
green buoys. Follow this trail to earn three of the red coins. Now the trail
disappears at this point; so head right to the far end of the area, where the
the trail appears again, with a red coin on the edge of where a group of green
buoys are. The next four are - inside the supports of the platform next to the
oil surrounded cave; in midair next to the yellow submarine; under the red
platform that is next to the red and black ship; and in-between the two small
boats next to the grey ship at the start of the level.

Once you collect them all, you will see the shine appear at the Blooper
platform, then you gain control again straight after, so be aware of this.
Surf back to the platform and jump into the shine itself to complete the
episode.

----------------------------------
Episode 7 - Shadow Mario Revisited
----------------------------------

You will have to chase and spray Shadow Mario around the level here, like all
other Episode seven's. He will run onto the black and red ship ahead of you,
then onto the funnel and up to the blue girder system. Remember to run and
spray at the same time (lightly press the R button as you go) to make this
episode easier. Once you have stopped him, talk to him and collect the shine
he leaves behind.

-----------------------------------
Episode 8 - Yoshi's Fruit Adventure
-----------------------------------

NOTE - You will need to have completed Episode 4 of Pinna Park before you can
complete this episode. You can still enter, but Yoshi will not be there, so
you cannot go further. Once you have completed that episode and got the Yoshi
Egg from Shadow Mario in the plaza, then you can attempt this episode.

Enter the manhole here and exit at the last manhole at the very end, where the
market stalls are. Look at the Yoshi egg next to the stalls, and the fruit will
be a Durian (a brown spiky thing). Head back down this area where there will
be a fruit dispensing machine on the edge (it has 'Fruits' written upon it,
and has a yellow tap). Double jump off the building opposite (or one of the
fruit tanks) and hover onto one of the fruit tanks, then ground pound the tank
with the higher nozzle to make a fruit pop out the tap. If it's not the one,
then hover over to the other side and ground pound there to dispense another
(they alternate sides each time you ground pound the nozzle). Only three fruits
at a time will be dispensed, so either wait until the fruits already out
disappear, or chuck them into the sea and keep going until you get a Durian.

When you get one, kick it over to the Yoshi Egg to hatch him. Ride Yoshi to the
edge by the market stalls, where the fish are jumping up. Spit juice at one
when it's at its lowest point to turn it into a platform that will take you
over to the metal platform on the other side. At this platform, go left onto
the ledge and eat the fruit on the tree to change Yoshi's colour. Now go back
onto the platform and spit at the next jumping fish. It will still turn into
a platform but will travel vertically instead, making your ascent up to the
highest metal platform here far easier. Make your way to the platform at the
top and spray the yellow slime on top of the mesh cage to dissolve it. Dismount
off Yoshi and enter the cage to get the shine.

--------------
Secret Shine 1
--------------

Complete and replay Episode 2 - Blooper Surfing Safari, and go to the cave to
enter the race course. This time complete the course under 40 seconds to
win the secret shine. I would take the yellow or pink Bloopers (which are
faster than the green Blooper) and remember to use the shortcut and tips that
I have supplied in the Episode 2 walkthrough (scroll up a few times bucko :P).

--------------
Secret Shine 2
--------------

Complete and replay Episode 4 - The Secret of Ricco Tower, and re-enter  the
level's special stage. Ground Pound the red button to start the red coin
challenge - you have 1:30 minutes to complete it in. The first and second coins
are above the second and forth rotating platforms. Use the wall jump between
the two walls to get the two red coins at the very top. The fifth is situated
in the middle of the green cogs - hover over to get this one. The last three
are all above the final bunch of rotating platforms - he second, forth and
fifth platforms to be exact. Remember that you can use the hover nozzle
throughout and it will be as easy as pie! The secret shine appears when you
collect all eight.

--------------
100 Coin Shine
--------------

The episode I will be covering here is Episode 3 - The Caged Shine Sprite. 
This is one of the hardest, most annoying levels to get coins on, as they
are spaced out everywhere, and there are those wind enemies that knock you off
platforms in certain places. I would really advise you to cover ALL the points
below. (NOTE - When I refer to the blue girder system, I mean the blue girders
that are located over the water around the yellow shine cage).

• When you start, there are some crates behind you to the left. Smash them all
  to get 3 coins (3)

• Ground Pound the sewer cover (one near where you begin) and totally explore
  the sewer system. It's very linear, so no need for directions. Make sure you
  jump up all the exits and they are lined with coins. This will earn you 38
  coins - very easy to get and THEY ARE ALL ESSENTIAL. (38)

• At the red and black boat located next to the tower surrounded by girders,
  do a side jump / back flip on to the tall black funnel on the boat. Look
  towards the yellow cage area, and you will see a moving crane that moves a
  platform in an arc. Hover onto the top of the crane and stand on the tip to
  get 8 coins. Then travel to the base of the crane to get another 4 coins.
  (12)

• Next to the big oil slick in the middle of the level is an orange platform
  with a blue arrow on it. Dive under this for four coins. (4)

• There are plenty of white octopuses in this level (they are on the blue
  girder system that's high up in the level in various places). Just explore
  the blue girder system to find them. Jump on them to get 1 coin, and if they
  are hanging under girders spray them to drop them off. (17+)

• At the grey ship (located next to where you start the episode), there
  are girders suspended over it. Side jump / back flip on it and collect the 8
  coins. (8)

• To the right of the tower (surrounded by girders) and to the left of the
  fountain is a white girder high up ish with 7 coins on it. To reach here,
  work your way up the blue girder system, or boost up there with a rocket
  nozzle. (7)

• On one of the lower levels of the blue girder system, nearest the tower, you
  will find a grey arrow sign and a red arrow sign. Beyond that is a moving
  hook so travel across that and climb the mesh after it. At the top, hop of
  the girder behind and travel to the end for 2 Coins. After these, do a 180
  turn and run back, round the corner, then to the end. Here, drop down to the
  side (look before you drop) for another 2 coins. While you are doing this, be
  hasty as those annoying wind baddies will pester you. (4)

• Between the yellow cage and the grey boat (the one near where you started
  the episode), a few levels up the blue girder structure is a gap with
  two vertical girders in it. Between the two vertical girders are 7 coins, and
  using walls jumps between them to collect them. (7)

• When you reach the first springboard on the blue girder system (it will have
  arrows either side and a red nozzle box nearby) there is a girder that goes
  along side it (its RIGHT next to the yellow cage). At the end of this girder
  is 4 coins. (4)

• After jumping up the first springboard, run about halfway along the girder
  and look to the right - there is a girder below that you can drop down to.
  Jump down to it, then follow it round the corner, straight along and right
  at the end. Here is a line of 4 coins vertically going down off the end,
  which you will need to drop down and collect. (4)

• Near the edge of the level (the red flagged barrier out in the sea) are
  two lines of coins high up. There are two sets of 4, side by side. Use the
  rocket pack to collect the coins. (8)

• At the tower surrounded by girders use a rocket pack to get up the platforms
  surrounding it. One of the platforms has two coins on, then from the top of
  the tower use the rocket pack again to collect a vertical line of seven
  coins. (9)

• SHINE LOCATION - Next to the fruit dispensing device (near the fountain and
  helipad). APPROX COIN TOTAL - 120+

 3.05. Gelato Beach
=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=

To unlock this area, get 5 shines and head to the lighthouse next to the beach,
of which is submerged under more slime. Defeat the piranha here (like Ricco
Harbour, it needs 6 squirts to the mouth and the entrance to Gelato Beach is
unlocked.

Note: Within this area, the large circle of sand that is connected to the beach
      is what I will refer to as the 'Spit'.

---------------------------------------
Episode 1 - Dune Bud Sand Castle Secret
---------------------------------------

Turn left 90 degrees and wade through the water to the large circle area that
is sticking out of the beach (the spit). From here, head onto the beach and
spray the first dune bud that you come across (small green leaves). Keep
spraying it until a sandcastle appears on the spit behind you. Now head
through the door of the castle quickly before it melts to reach a special
stage.

Run across the path of sand quickly, as they dissolve away whilst you are on
them, and jump across the gaps as you go. Take a breather at the green
platform, and ground pound the bottom left nail three times to receive a 1-Up
Green Mushroom. The others have coins. Go across the next path of sand blocks,
where you will reach a giant sand castle. Head through the arch and go to the
top via the blocks from behind. At the top, on the backend is a 1-Up Green
Mushroom, and the level's shine is at the front.

--------------------------------------------
Episode 2 - Mirror Madness! Tilt, Slam, Bam!
--------------------------------------------

Head onward and collect the trail of coins on the beach, which leads to a 
beach hut. Go round behind the hut and jump up to the ledge, where the bases
of the three mirrors are. Go left along the ledge just a little, and jump over
on to the tree next to here. Make your way across the tree tops to the first
mirror, with a single cataquack on it.

To get the giant cataquack off the mirror, then squirt water at it until it
goes to one of the edges, and tries to retain its balance (stands on one leg).
When you have done this, quickly go to the opposite and higher side of the
mirror and ground pound there. If you did it correctly, then the cataquack
would have been launched into the air, and off the mirror. There is no contact
needed for doing this.

With the first mirror out of the way, take the tree tops left to the top of
a wooden platform, and over another three to a mirror with two cataquacks on
it. Again, lore them to the edge and ground pound the opposite side. There
really isn't any difference despite you against two; just concentrate on one
at a time (however try and get them to be on the same side, otherwise you will
upset the balance).

After the second mirror, head over to the ledge in the middle of the tower and
go round to the other side to reach the third and final mirror, this time with
three cataquacks on. There is no difference here either, just stick to the
plan. After all three mirrors are done, the shine will appear on this spit
on the beach. Shine get!

-------------------------------------------
Episode 3 - Wiggler Ahoy! Full Steam Ahead!
-------------------------------------------

The giant Wrigger that was sleeping on the tower just woke up, and he isn't a
happy bunny. He will charge around the beach in a set pattern, until you
flip him over. To do this, you will need to spray one of the dune bugs to
they pop up as he goes over them. Once he has been flipped over, you then
ground pound the section that has an arrow above it. He starts on the left
side of the beach to begin with. I would use the dune bud nearest to where you
begin the level (it has a Noki standing beside it). Use the same dune bud
again on the second phase as he circles around it, making your job easier.

On the third phase, he gets quicker and goes around more of the beach area.
Use the dune bud that is nearest the beach hut as he circles around this one.
Be quick after though as he lays down on the water (hover over the water to
get there faster). Once you have defeated him, then the shine will appear on
the spit on the beach.

---------------------------------
Episode 4 - The Sand Bird is Born
---------------------------------

Head up to the ledge after the beach (where the base of the tower and the
three mirrors are) and spray the dune bud in the cave at the back, to form
a set of stairs leading up the green area above. Follow the path, take a left
at the junction, and keep going to reach the top of level (a brick area,
surrounded by ropes). From here is a trail of coins leading down the slope,
toward the tower. Slide down and follow this coin trail, jump onto the pink
trampoline and into the hole in the top of the tower to enter a unique special
stage...

Wow! You are riding on top of the sand bird, which is circling around a tower.
You have to collect 8 red coins in this episode, 7 of which are on the bird
itself; two per wing, one in the middle, and one on the head and tail. Some
are in the air, too. Just watch your step here, you don't want to be falling
off now. After a short while, the bird will rotate round to its side. The
best way to stay on the bird is stay on the edge, and slowly walk across onto
the side as it rotates. Otherwise you can use your hover nozzle to stabilise
yourself. After a short while again, it will rotate back in to an upright
position.

Various clouds will pass you by too. These hold items like Blue Coins and
the odd 1-Up Green Mushroom. I would try and avoid getting most of these
(bar the blue coins, which you can get now or later - see the Blue Coin listing
to see the amount here). You can jump on these clouds and wait _ages_ for the
bird to come around again, but there is little point. When the bird reaches the
top of the tower, make sure that you have collected all 7 of the red coins
and hover over, where the final 8th coin is. The shine will then appear next
to here also.

----------------------------------------
Episode 5 - II Piantissimo's Sand Sprint
----------------------------------------

In this episode, you have to race to the top of the level (the bricked area
surrounded up ropes) against II Piantissimo. Approach him on the beach when
you want to begin racing. You will have to get up to the flag within 35 seconds
to win.

Head onward and jump onto the ledge at the back of the beach, and wall jump up
the cave at the back of here to reach the grassy section. You can cut across
the grass here to the top (but don't go on the steep parts otherwise you will
slide down) and touch the flag to win. It's fairly easy. If you are having
trouble, then before approaching II Piantissimo go up the ledge behind the
beach hut and jump and hover over to the ledge in the cliff where there is
a rocket nozzle box. You can use this to jump over the large gaps, and so
could provide some help. Once you win, he hands over the shine.

---------------------------------------
Episode 6 - Red Coins in the Coral Reef
---------------------------------------

Head left across the beach and enter the water. Swim along to the coral reef
(the rocks under the water; left of the Surf Cabana hut out in the sea).
The swimming controls by the way, is the A button to swim, and the B button to
dive. Six of the coins are situated in the rock channels; swim though all of
them to locate them. The last two are with schools of fish that swim outside
close to the reef. Apart from drowning, there is no other dangers in this
episode, so its very straight forward. Once you have all eight red coins, the
shine will appear on the rock above the reef.

-----------------------------------------
Episode 7 - It's Shadow Mario! After Him!
-----------------------------------------

Chase Shadow Mario, and spray him while doing so. Simple stuff. If you manage
to lose him, when he is on the ledge behind the beach. Pot Noodle's are very
_very_ tasty, might I add. </plug>

-----------------------------------
Episode 8 - The Watermelon Festival
-----------------------------------

The aim of this episode is to get the biggest watermelon over to the hut that
is to the west of the beach (the hut out on the sea). As you might have guessed
the biggest watermelon is located at the top area of the level (the bricked
area, surrounded by ropes). Make your way up there. To roll the watermelon,
simply walk into it and it will be pushed away from you. Take it across the
thin linear walkway (in the direction of the hut you are taking it to) slowly
so that it stays on there. When you reach the gap, push it down the hill and
onto the beach; as soon as you push it slide down as well, as try and get to
the beach before the watermelon does.

The watermelon should survive the fall (it always has done when I do it). When
you get to the beach, spray all the nearby cataquacks away. Not content on
pissing you off, they will also try and flip the watermelon into the air as
well, so it's essential that you keep these guys at bay. Slowly roll it across
the beach toward the walkway that goes to the hut, and take regular stops to
spray the cataquacks. When you reach the walkway to the hut, roll it across
_slowly_ toward the hut. When you get there, you are awarded your shine!
If the watermelon pops along the way, then go back to the top area, where the
watermelon will regenerate so you may attempt it again.

--------------
Secret Shine 1
--------------

This can be found in Episode 1 - Dune Bud Sand Castle Secret. Go to the far end
of the area, and up the ledge to where the bases of the mirrors and tower are.
Next to the base of the trampoline and a Pianta that talks about the sand bird
is a dune bud. Spray this and go down the stairs that are revealed, and spray
the wall to uncover an image of a shine sprite. Keep spraying it until a shine
comes from it, which you can collect at the very top of the level.

--------------
Secret Shine 2
--------------

This can be found in Episode 1 - Dune Bud Sand Castle Secret. Make sure that
you complete the episode first, then enter the special stage via the sand
castle. Ground Pound the red button that is on the platform after going across
the first sand path section to start the red coin collecting challenge,
of which you have 1:00 minute to complete it in. You will collect three of the
coins as you go across to the giant sand castle, two on the front corners (on
the orange blocks), one underneath the arch of the sand castle, and the final
two on the two opposite towers on top. 

Make sure that you make good use of the hover nozzle (as the sand blocks
dissolve, remember?). Once you have collected all the red coins, the shine will
appear on the green platform in front of the giant sand castle.

--------------
100 Coin Shine
--------------

The episode for this one is Episode 8, The Watermelon Festival. Getting the
100 coin shine in this level is tough, so get all the coins that are here.

• When you start, turn around and run to the island in the sea that has
  several large palm trees on it. Climb each tree to get four coins off each
  one, then use the swing that is hanging off one of the trees. Squirt the
  nozzle so that you collect the five coins in the swings path. (17)

• On the main beach area and on the large green ledge just up the mountain
  (the one with the three large mirrors) there are lots of round red baddies
  with beaks walking around. If you spray one of them, it will be dazed, then
  quickly jump on it to get a coin. Do this with all these on the beach and
  the green ledge with each you 26 coins, so it's an essential you do this
  one. (26)

• There are seven coins under the juice smoothie place (the hut in the water).
  Just get to the back of it and dive underneath it. (7)

• Popping the watermelons will earn you coins. To pop them, run them into
  wall or off a cliff. Once they are popped, collect the coin, and go back to
  where it was before - another will grow in its place, and you can pop it
  again and again to get coins. After about 7-10 times, you they will not
  produce any more coins. You find one on the west of the beach (near the
  juice smoothie place), one next to the fruit shack on the beach, and the
  last one is located at the very top of the area (its the biggest watermelon).
  To get there, Get to the ledge where you have the three mirrors and spray
  the bud in that alcove to create a set of stairs. Go up them, take a left
  at the turn and follow the path up. (25+)

• On the beach there is a fruit shack, (located on the right side of the beach)
  and under the ceiling is four coins. (4)

• On the right side of the area is a ledge in the mountain side, with six coins
  with a red nozzle box. To get there, use either the rocket pack or hover from
  the nearby green ledge.

• At the top of the level (where the biggest watermelon is) there are bouncy
  ropes where green birds hang around. Spray them under they turn into turn
  into coins. (8)

• By the left most mirror is a wooden umbrella / shack type thing (it has a
  beehive underneath it). Get on top of it and use a rocket nozzle pack to get
  the eight coins that are in a vertical line above. (8)

• At the top of the level where the biggest watermelon is, follow the path
  that heads in the direction of the juice smoothie place. At the end of the
  path drop down and collect the two coins. (2)

• At the top of the level where the biggest watermelon is, side jump / backflip
  onto the ropes around that area, and follow the rope in the direction of the 
  juice smoothie place. Jump up to the taller ropes and at the highest one, is
  4 coins lined up for you to collect. (4)

• SHINE LOCATION - Where there is a weird circle shape that comes from the
  south west part of the beach, you will find your shine.
  APPROX COIN AMOUNT - 110+

 3.06. Pinna Park
=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=

To unlock this area, get 10 shines and head to the North West shore and go to
the cannon there. Follow Shadow Mario via the cannon to unlock Pinna Park.

---------------------------------
Episode 1 - Mecha-Bowser Appears!
---------------------------------

Go onward, up the steps and though to the entrance to the park. Follow Shadow
Mario that is ahead to the pool at the far end of the area, where a cutscene
will start. What you have to do is ride a rollercoaster around the track, with
Mecha Bowser being more or less in the middle. You have to fire rockets at is
head (which are collected while you are on the roller coaster. However he fires
bullet bills which follow the track line in front of you and behind you. You
can spray these with water to destroy them before they hit you. You can tell
when they are coming as they leave a trail of smoke as they go.

At the section of track that Mecha-Bowser throws flames at you, you can squirt
water into his mouth to douse them. After about 4 hits to the noggin, Mecha-
Bowser is down for the count.

-------------------------------------
Episode 2 - The Beach Cannon's Secret
-------------------------------------

Simply go right across the beach to the cannon at the end. To get there in a 
flash (and to avoid an onslaught of bullet bills) then squirt ahead of you
then dive into the water with the B button and slide all the way there.
When you get there, the attack will change from bullet bills to Bob-ombs.
Spray a Bob-omb to neutralise it temporarily, and pick it up and throw it at
the cannon. Do this three times and the creature within the cannon will be
destroyed. Now enter the cannon to reach a special stage.

Jump (there is a gap present!) on to the green and white platform ahead, and
observe the platforms ahead. When a platform goes dark it will disappear, so
make your way across and whenever a platform that you are on starts going dark
get onto another platform ASAP. Afterward go to the crates further on to the
right and ground pound the central one to get a 1-Up Green Mushroom. Head
back to the tower like structure and bounce up the orange platforms to the top
(stay as vertical as you can, as travelling too far means you could fall down.

At the top, there is a line of red platforms that disappear one after another.
To get across, watch and wait for the one at the other end to disappear. Wait
one second, then run and jump forward. The blocks will regenerate under you,
and you will get a headstart so you can reach the otherside easily. If you fall
then go back to the tower and head back up. After you get past, you will have
to do it again to get to the shine. Use the same tactic of waiting for the
final platform to disappear, wait one second and jump onward to get a headstart
and to make it fairly easily. DON'T go and get the 1-Up Green Mushroom, as its
_very hard_ to do so. Collect the shine at the end to complete this episode.

-----------------------------------------
Episode 3 - Red Coins of the Pirate Ships
-----------------------------------------

Enter the park. Go right, and follow the signs to the pirate ship ride.
Go up the stairs and collect the first red coin on the edge (1). Jump on the
first pirate ship as it goes right to collect the coin on the right side (2),
and head over the other pirate ship as it swings left to collect the coin on
the left side (3). Jump and hover over to the green mesh platform at the other
side of the ride afterward. Go to the side where the door in the platform is,
and do a tall jump upward and hover straight above you so that you hang onto
the mesh platform above. Grab the red coin here (4) and keep going to the
door that leads into the mesh box ahead (press the A button). Grab the blue
coin (you may as well as you are here) then go out the side door, and climb
onto the top of the box to get another red coin (5).

Now head back down to the first mesh platform (the one with the electric
enemies underneath) and ground pound those guys off. Ground pound the door at
the end and swing across, and collect the coin as you go (6) then enter the
door (press the A button). Head through another door above you. Go under the
mesh path that leads upward here, and swing across to the end where a coin is
(7). Be sure to press the A button under each of the enemies as you go to
knock them off. Head back down and go across the mesh path from the top now,
and collect the final coin at the top (8). The shine will appear next to here
also.

---------------------------------
Episode 4 - The Wilted Sunflowers
---------------------------------

Head right across the beach to where the "Yoshi eggs" are. Spraying one will
awaken and reveal the enemy, who will chase you and jump onto you. As you see
it's shadow on top of you, then move away and ground pound it's stomach as it
is stuck in the ground (be sure that you do this on the sand - he doesn't sink
into the ground whilst on grass). This will revive one of the sunflowers. Do
this with all the eggs here to get a shine.

------------------------------------
Episode 5 - The Runaway Ferris Wheel
------------------------------------

Enter the park. Head onward and left to the pool (where Mecha-Bowser appeared)
and go right, taking the orange path that leads to the section behind the
Ferris Wheel (there is water running down the walls). Jump onto the blue mesh
wall on the right (onto the side closest to the wall) and jump onto one of the
green panels. Climb left to the far panel and go up to the top and then spray
with the hover nozzle. The panel will flip and you will land upon it. Now
quickly hover over and through the other panels left, so that you arrive at
the blue mesh box at the far side. Climb on top, and ground pound the door.
Climb on to the side wall, go through the door, climb up and right and hit the
enemy off the other side. Now go back through the doors and hang on to the
other side and take off the enemy on the other side.
Head round back to the other side again (the side which Mario is _looking_ at
the wall) and climb right to the end. Spray the green panels with the squirt
nozzle and climb onto them as they come forward, and remain on them as they
go back again. Climb on top here, and climb the mesh here and knock all the
enemies off. Climb back and onto the green panels again, and spray with the
squirt nozzle so they come forward. Go up onto the blue mesh now (the side
that those enemies were on) and go left. Climb onto the ceiling mesh and
head up through the door (with the A button). Use the rope ahead to bounce up
to the mesh door above, and flip the door round (the A button) so it takes the
enemy off, resuming the Ferris Wheel back to normal speed.

To get the shine, go one of the sides and hover onto the one of the carriages.
Ride it to the top and jump off, then collect your well earned shine. Phew.

---------------------------------------
Episode 6 - The Yoshi-Go-Round's Secret
---------------------------------------

Enter the park. Go right, through the orange arch and up the path, and go up
to the ledge behind the weird tree on the right. Check the fruit in the Yoshi
egg's thought bubble, and collect the fruit that's displayed there. Go round
the park and look for it; check the ledges and round poles for them. Once you
have it, then take it back to the egg and it will hatch. Now ride Yoshi up
the path, where there is a structure with a pineapple underneath it. Eat this
and Yoshi will turn orange. Now go back to the park's entrance and go left
now, to where the Yoshi-Go-Round is. One of the Yoshi's on this attraction is
missing, so ride Yoshi into the gap (make sure he's coloured orange) and you
will enter a special stage.

Go ahead and run over the blue and yellow boxes as they rotate. Stay in the
center as much as possible. Watch out for the central yellow box, as that
rotates very fast. Go onto the brown platform after, and ground pound the nail
furthest away for a 1-Up Green Mushroom. Jump onto block as it comes past,
and make your way over to the central blue blocks, then ride it round through
the arch to the other side and go over the blocks again to the area afterwards.
You can ride the central blue block round fully to get a 1-Up Green Mushroom.

Afterward take the orange block across to the orange block area ahead. Go left
and use the moving block to get across the gap, jump up the step and wall jump
up to the top. Go right (if you were facing all the orange blocks) and get onto
the vertically moving block. At the very top, do a high jump to the block
below (and ahead) then proceed onward to the shine.

------------------------------------
Episode 7 - Shadow Mario in the Park
------------------------------------

Enter the park, and chase and spray Shadow Mario until he falls over. Standard
stuff here.

-----------------------------------
Episode 8 - Roller Coaster Balloons
-----------------------------------

Enter the park. Go right through the orange arch and follow the path up to
where there is a wooden bridge, and take it across to the roller coaster.
Talk to the green Noki here to begin this mini game. It's like in the first
episode; you ride a rollercoaster round it's track and fire rockets. This time
the targets are balloons - 20 of them to be more exact. You will have to pop
them all within 3 laps of the rollercoaster circuit also. Some overall advice
is to aim slightly below the balloons to hit them, and that you had more than
one at once (as the rockets go through balloons and keep going), and if you
are at the right angle in certain spots this is possible. Some more particular
advice is to fire the first rocket at the balloons to the left (far away,
between the buildings) and that you can only really hit the 3 balloons after
the first dip using either the rocket you collect when going up the hill and
the one after that, so use these two for those particular balloons.

Overall, it's quite a hard task. Replay the level several times to learn where
most of the balloons are positioned, and you should do it eventually.

--------------
Secret Shine 1
--------------

Complete Episode 2 - The Beach Cannon's Secret first then re-enter the episode
and enter the special stage. Ground Pound the red button for the red coin
challenge to start, which you will have to complete in 1:00 minute. There are 6
coins in the first area alone - one in each corner, and two more or less in
the middle. Remember that the platforms here disappear once they go dark and
use the hover nozzle to aid you. After head up the tower of bouncy orange
platforms and collect the one at the top (7). The last one is at the other
side. Again, wait until the last platform as gone, wait one second and jump
forward, then run onward to get to the other side in time. Remember that you
can use the hover nozzle to help you over if you are a bit lax (8). The shine
will appear on the other side.

--------------
Secret Shine 2
--------------

Complete Episode 6 - The Yoshi-Go-Round's Secret first, re-enter the episode
and enter the special stage. The red button is after the rotating blocks at the
beginning (ground pound the nail furthest away on this ledge three times for a
1-Up Green Mushroom before doing so though). You will have 2:00 minutes to
complete this. There are two coins in the blocks area here; one under the
left blue arch (1) and the other under the left black arch (2). Proceed to the
orange blocks area at the end of the level afterward. Two coins are in the
wall jumping column (3-4), one above the brown brick block in the corner (5),
two on the level below the vertically moving block on opposite sides (6-7)
and the last above the vertically moving vertical block - you will need to
jump up quite high to get it (8).

--------------
100 Coin Shine
--------------

Hmm, a cheap method this, but it makes it a lot easier. The episode for this is
Episode 2 - The Beach Cannon's Secret. 

In this episode, there will be bullets coming from the cannon aimed at Mario.
As they are coming towards you, spray them to make them explode and release
their coin stash. There are three types of bullet that will be fired from the
cannon -

Black linear = 2 coins
Fires in a linear path that doesn't change direction. Very common.

Purple homing = 2 coins
These ones home in on you, so watch out. These are also very common.

Golden bullet = 8 coins
These are rare, but hold lots of coins. Always spray these.

It's best to stay in one position and spray them as they come towards you.
Then quickly collect the coins they release (as they disappear quickly) and
return to the position you where last, and repeat. Going too close to the
cannon means he will stop firing and throw walking bombs instead, so stay at a
reasonable distance (but not too far away). This will not take long at all, and
the bullets will not stop coming so you can get 999 coins in this episode.

SHINE LOCATION - It's located at where you start the level.
APPROX COIN AMOUNT - 0 to 999

=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=
 3.07. Sirena Beach
=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=

Unlock the Yoshi Egg in Delfino Plaza (completed Episode 4 of Pinna Park), and
hatch the egg and mount Yoshi. Get onto the rooftops opposite the Grand Pianta
Statue and using Yoshi, eat the fruit blocking the red pipe. Enter the pipe to
go to the Sirena Beach area.

---------------------------
Episode 1 - The Manta Storm
---------------------------

Go up the ledge here, right and up the central stairs to the top, where there
is a large square patch of electric slime. Talk to the Pianta standing in front
of this, and the giant paper-thin Manta will arrive. First off, don't touch
any of the electric slime unless you want to lose health. You can still clear
it away like regular slime, so do so as you go. You cannot touch the Manta's
either. The aim here is to spray the Manta until it divides, and keep spraying
it so it divides smaller and smaller where it will just vanish. Use the
rotating spray (rotate the analog stick and spray while doing) clear away those
Manta around you. Once all the Manta are at the smallest size, then they will
turn red and focus their attention to you. Again, rotate and spray to get those
around you until they are all gone. If you are in need of health, then clean
away areas of slime to uncover coins. Once you have defeated the Manta then
the hotel will rise again and the Shine will be above the central torch.

------------------------------------
Episode 2 - The Hotel Lobby's Secret
------------------------------------

Go up the ledge, up the central stairs up to the hotel and talk to the Pianta
standing in front of the door to enter. Ignore the white Boo's, and go forward
and spray the pink ones that are around the central pole. Doing this will
turn them into platforms temporarily, so climb up them to get to the 2nd floor.
Get onto the side flooring and spray the pink Boo's here also, and again, climb
up to the floor above. At the top floor, hover over into the Boo mouth at the
top of the pole to enter a special stage.

Jump onto the path on the right, and jump on and dispose of the three enemies
ahead. Jump into the three brick blocks from underneath to get a 1-Up Green
Mushroom, and then jump up to the path above. Use the flying creatures as a
means to get over the gaps ahead, and then wall jump up the section afterward
(clearing away the blocks as you go). Run across the path of sand blocks to
the end where its safe (ignore the path that goes lower down). You can ground
pound the column of watermelon blocks at the end to get a 1-Up Green Mushroom.
To progress, then ground pound the second block across and head down the
passage and onto the green cog. Stay in the middle as it goes across as it
heads over to the mass of sand blocks. Head straight over the top (watch the
gap in the middle) and onward to the shine after it.

------------------------------------
Episode 3 - Mysterious Hotel Delfino
------------------------------------

Enter the hotel. Go onward to the stairs but don't go up, and instead go left
and enter the bathroom. Go to the end cubicle and stand on the back, then jump
straight up here to enter the room on the floor above. Go into the other part
of the room and spray the painting on the wall until a Boo appears on it, then
jump through it to enter the room next door. Go to the end of the room and
spray the shutters on the left so they all show an image of a Boo - they will
then open up, allowing you to progress. Go through and spray the pink Boo's
and use them as platforms and jump through the hole in the ceiling. In the
room above, spray the cabinet at the side and enter the next room, then ground
pound the lightest tile to go down into the crate room below. Ground pound the
crates until you find a pineapple, then pick it up and exit the room via the
door. Jump down the middle to the first floor and give the pineapple to the
Yoshi Egg in the corner to hatch him.

Ride Yoshi up to the third floor (take the stairs) and enter the room at the
back with the open door, and use the bed to spring up into the hole in the
ceiling. In the attic, get to the bottom right corner (so you are above the
pool room of the third floor) and eat all the Boo's that are in your path.
Take the outside edge round to get to this corner, then ground pound through
the cracked tile to enter the pool room. Collect the shine to finish.

----------------------------------------
Episode 4 - The Secret of Casino Delfino
----------------------------------------

Enter the hotel. Go onward and down the passage next to the left bathroom and
talk to the Pianta there to enter the casino. Inside head over to the left
side of the casino to where the giant slot machine on the wall is, and start
spraying the panels. Line up the panels so they produce three 7's, then go
over to the giant slot machine on the opposite wall. Here a spray spins all
three of the panels, so you have to keep going until you get three 7's. Once
you get triple 7 on both wall slot machines, then the curtain in the center
will pull up, to reveal a grid of question marks. Spray these panels to uncover
an image of a shine sprite. It gets harder when you get only a few remaining,
so stand as close as you can and aim carefully. Once they all show a shine
sprite, the grid will move to show a pipe. Go down this pipe to enter as
special stage.

Move the camera to an overhead position before starting (it will make this
stage a lot easier). Progress past the two cubes and take the cube over to the
next area when it comes over to you. At the other side you will have more
cubes to get past - cut the corners of the gaps by jumping over the corners if
you need to (like when you going to be crushed). There is a 1-Up Green Mushroom
on the right hand side, which can be reachable with a high jump. Get on to the
rotating cube at the end when it comes over, and stay in the middle while
riding it to avoid falling off. Jump on to the wooden stake at the other end,
and make your way across the others a rotating platform at the end. Again, stay
in the middle to stay on. You will need to perform a high jump on an edge to
collect the 1-Up Green Mushroom that is above here as it goes. Use the cube
at the other side to ride over to the shine at the end of this stage.

-------------------------------
Episode 5 - King Boo Down Below
-------------------------------

Enter the hotel, and then to the Casino area. Go onward to the roulette wheel
(ignore the side coins just before here, only collect the middle one) and 
ground pound the purple panel to be taken down below to fight King Boo!

King Boo will throw normal Boo's your way (jump on these guys) until you
spray water at him, where he will spin a slot machine. Once you have dealt
with the slot machine outcome, spray him again to have another go on the
machine. Here are the different possible outcomes that you could receive. To
injure Kong Boo then go to the Fruit outcome below (at the end).

?          - Random enemies. It's best and is easier to avoid them until they
             disappear. However you can kill them to get some coins.

Coins      - Payday for Mario! You receive some coins.

Koopa -      Those weird rounded enemies appear. There are three different
like         types - the normal sort that wobble around and chase you (jump on
enemies      these guys), the flying sort (spray them and jump on them) and
             the ones on fire (avoid and run away! Use the moving sections to
             gain get increased speed). Either defeat these, or run away from
             them.
 
Random     - If you get random outcomes (example: two coins and a ?) then you
Slots        get hampered by loads of water bubbles. They are harmful to touch
             but when sprayed, they leave water bottles behind which will add
             water to your FLUDD tank.

Fruit      - This is the one you want. Once you get this, fruit will be
             littered around the area. Grab a chilli (long, red and horizontal)
             and throw it at King Boo to set his tongue alight. Now grab any
             fruit and throw it at him to injure him.

Also note that you can stop the different floor sections temporarily from
moving by ground pounding the purple panel in that section. Once you have
injured King Boo three times (see the fruit outcome above), he will be down and
out, and the shine is yours.

----------------------------------
Episode 6 - Scrubbing Sirena Beach
----------------------------------

Clean away 95% of the electric slime on the beach area within 3 minutes to earn
your shine. The best tip that I can offer here is to run and spray at the same
time (hold down the R trigger lightly) and while you are doing so, move left
and right to create a sweeping effect. Clear away all the major sections, then
go after the smaller bits that you left behind. It's not too hard if you do it
this way. Once you are done, then clean off the four dirty Noki's here (two by
the front sunbeds, and two left of the central torch) to receive four blue
coins! (you may as well as get them whilst you are here). Note that if only 
two give you coins, then you must have cleaned off them in the first Episode
and got the coins then. Once you are done cleaning, then talk to the Pianta
one the beach next to where you began to get the shine.

----------------------------------
Episode 7 - Shadow Mario Checks In
----------------------------------

Enter the hotel, then chase and spray Shadow Mario. He will go up stairs,
round to the base of the stairs going up, then run around that same floor,
then down below to the ground floor by jumping down through the hole in the
center. He will then repeat this (so he basically only goes up one floor).
Watch out for the imitation Shadow Mario's as you go, which are really Boo's
(you can tell them apart as they are more clear and lifeless).

----------------------------------
Episode 8 - Red Coins in the Hotel
----------------------------------

Enter the hotel and ground pound the red button ahead. You have to collect
8 coins that are located all around the hotel within 5 minutes.

Grab the first one ahead of you (1), then enter the toilets in the right corner
for the second (2). How head into the toilets opposite (the one in the left
corner) and go to the end cubicle and jump up through the ceiling and to the
room above. Spray the Boo painting on the wall and jump through and collect the
coin at the end (3). Exit out the door and go left to where a coin is in front
of the lamp (4). Head up to the next floor, where another coin will be more
or less central (5). Now head up the attic (go into the room with the open
door, jump on bed and into ceiling hole) and go to the left corner where a
cracked tile is - ground pound here to enter the room below. Spray the Dolpic
poster on the wall and jump through and get the coin here (6). Go back to the
room just and ground pound the lighter floor tile into the room below (the
crate room) where a coin will be in the doorway (7).

Exit through the door and go to floor 3 and enter the attic again. Go to the
corner opposite where you went last (if the last one was top left, then this
would be bottom left) and ground pound the cracked tile to enter the pool room.
Grab the final coin here (8) and the shine will appear in the bottom floor
lobby.

That was the quickest route to all the coins, and if you follow that
walkthrough you should get the shine no sweat. If you are confused about some
of the coin locations, then below are maps to the 2nd and 3rd floors, with the
coins marked by a number (number decided by the order they are collected
according to the walkthrough).

Secret Shine 1

Complete Episode 2 - The Hotel Lobby's Secret before hand, then replay and
enter the special stage. The button is found just after the wall jump section,
before the path of sand blocks over to the melon area. You will have
1:30 minutes to complete this challenge.

There are three coins on route across the sand path - the first requires a
jump then hover, the second is at ground level and the third requires you to
perform a high jump in to it). Get onto the watermelon block area, where a
the forth coin will be at the end. Go back and ground pound the second
watermelon block across to the passage below. Go down the steps to the bottom
one, and hover round the steps to the area under them on the other side (where
the ice cubes are). The fifth coin is here. Hover back round to the steps again
and ride the cog across to the mass of sand blocks. I recommend that you
high jump off the cog to the coin at the front (its high up), and the final two
are on either side of the sand blocks. The shine will be located at the end.

--------------
Secret Shine 2
--------------

Complete Episode 4 - The Secret of the Casino Delfino, and re-enter it's
special stage. Move the camera back (it helps to see what you are doing) and
ground pound the red button, and you have 1 minute to get all 8 coins. The
first is in the center of this area here (1) and the next is high up on the 1st
cube ride over to the next area, which requires a high jump (2). You will need
to do another high jump in the center in this second cube area (3) and there
is another high up on the ride over to the giant stakes (4). Three coins are
above the stakes here (5-7) and the final coin is above the rotating platform
afterward, which is quite high up and requires a high up from one of the edges
to get it (8). Now take the cube over to the shine at the end.

100 Coin Shine
--------------

I will be covering Episode 4 - The Secret of Casino Delfino. I will cover it in
sections, and I will use some ASCII art to make things easier too. Remember
that once you enter the hotel you cannot go to the outside again, and if you
enter the casino you cannot return back to the hotel.

  OUTSIDE
  -------

• There are three crates to the far left of where you begin - smash all three
  to earn a coin and an extra life. (1)
• Outside the hotel entrance are huts to the left and right. The right hut
  has one coin inside it's ceiling and the left hut has two under the ceiling.
  (3)
• In the middle of the area is a stand thing on fire - put out the flame to get
  one whole coin. You earned it. (1)
• Putting out all the torches either side of the hotel entrance earns you
  seven coins (and one blue coin if you haven't got it already). (7)
• There is a ledge halfway up the hotel outside. Do a spin jump and then hover
  to get up there (..just) and then at the front put out the two torches to get
  a coin from each. (2)

  OUTSIDE COIN TOTAL - 14

  INSIDE HOTEL FLOOR 1
  --------------------

• To the left and right of the entrance are two lines of four coins. (8)
• In the center of the floor are four torches - by each of these is a coin. (4)
• Hose all the ten torches on this floor to receive a coin each from them.(10)
• On the west side of this floor is a Pianta at a desk. Go behind him to find
  two coins. (2)
• Spray the plant in the ladies toilets to receive a coin. (1)

  Here it is just a maze, so make your way through it (it's not that hard, so I
  don't think that ASCII will make much of a difference). Also directions wise,
  where you start is north.

• Top Left (6)
• Center (4)
• Middle right (4)
• Near the bottom left (4)

  ATTIC COIN TOTAL - 18

  OVERALL OUTSIDE AND HOTEL COIN COUNT - 114 

  SHINE LOCATION - The middle of the first floor hall

  While I'm here I'll cover the Casino too, ja?

  CASINO
  ------

  Remember, once you come in here, you cannot go out.

• There are a set of slot machines on the left. Butt slam the top of each
  machine to get a different amount of coins...
  6 produce 1 coin each
  1 produce 3 coins
  One spews out a blue coin. So that's a total of nine coins. (9)
• There are a set of slot machines on the right. Butt slam the top of each
  machine to get a different amount of coins...
  6 produce 1 coin each
  1 produce 3 coins
  1 produce 5 coins
  So that's a total of nine coins. (14)
• Spraying the left fountain gives you one coin. (1)
• There is a slot machine on the right side of the casino, where to spin the
  dials you have to spray into the golden hole. The dials then spin and you get
  a prize (which comes from the same golden hole). The prizes are as follows-
  3 Ghosts = 1 Ghost
  3 coins  = 3 Coins
  3 sevens = End slot machine
  Once you get three sevens, the slot machine is unusable. But as you can have
  unlimited goes until then, you can get up to 999 coins, but I wouldn't risk 
  it. 

  CASINO COIN TOTAL (WITHOUT SLOTS) - 24
  CASINO COIN TOTAL (WITH SLOTS) - 24 to 999

• TOTAL COIN TOTAL (ALL AREAS WITHOUT SLOTS) - 138

 3.08. Noki Bay
=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=

After getting 20 Shines, go to the center of the plaza and in front of the
shine gate by the water is a light shining down on the shine image on the
floor. Stand on this image, and go into first person view and look at the
sun in the sky to enter Noki Bay.

--------------------------------
Episode 1 - Uncork the Waterfall
--------------------------------

Go across the floating platforms ahead of you to the platforms that go round
the stem pillar. Go up here and onto the suspended gold platform. Squirting the
jug opposite will make this platform rise, so do so and then jump on to the
ledge and go right. You can spray the brown box on the wall here for a coin.
At the gap spray the paint of the wall to reveal a ledge, so take it across,
then spray off more paint above for another ledge to appear. Head across.
Clear away all the paint here, including the dolphin shaped one on the wall
to reveal another platform. You need to get up here via the suspended platform
on the left, where like before, you will have to spray the jug opposite to
rise upward. Go right across the gaps and up the higher path, cleaning away
paint as you go.

Clean off more paint on the wall, and wall jump between the left wall and the
newly created ledge to the area above, which is covered in more paint. Clean
it away as you go, and refill your FLUDD tank at the pool by the cliff wall.
Wall jump off the cliff and hover over onto the higher ledge to the left and
keep going until you reach the cannon. Spray the Bob-omb's thrown out by the
cannon and then throw them back as they are disabled (throw at edge to reach)
three times to destroy the cannon, uncork the waterfall and earn a shiny shine.

------------------------------------
Episode 2 - The Boss of Tricky Ruins
------------------------------------

Go ahead across the white floating platforms ahead to the ledge on the far
side with the purple Noki. Talk to this old fool then spray the brown box in
the cliff above to reveal a series of passages in the cliff face. Wall jump up
the passage here, then go right, up, right again then up to the area above.
Head up the ledge on the right, and jump on all the Octopuses to kill them.
Spray the brown box on the wall here to reveal more passages in the cliff face.
Wall jump up and make your way round to the end, where you will arrive
at the cliff top, where none other than Glooper Blooper will greet you!

If you have fought against Glooper Blooper in the Ricco Harbour levels, then
you should have no problem here as it's the same thing. Defeat the three
octopuses before you start fighting. Wait until it attacks you with its
tentacles and grab one of them shortly afterward before he withdraws them.
Drag it back until it snaps. If you having trouble grabbing hold of them,
then you can jump on the tip of it to flatten it and hold it still for a
short while. Snap off its tentacles at the front, then spray the oil around
its mouth to clean it off. Grab hold of the cork in its mouth and pull it back
until he is injured. If you get hit while you do this, then take out another
tentacle or two and try again.

If you need health at any time, then climb up of the trees here were there
are coins on top. Another thing to bear in mind is to stay away from the edge,
especially when pulling the tentacles, otherwise you will mostly likely fall
off, and then you will need to get all the way back up here again. When you
have defeated him, jump down the hole that he was sitting on to reach the shine
room. Clean the two giant jars in the walls to get 2 blue coins (you may as
well as do this now while you are here) then collect the shine.

---------------------------------
Episode 3 - Red Coins in a Bottle
---------------------------------

This is where you are inside a bottle, collecting red coins. It acts as sort
of practice for the underwater episodes later in this level. To rise use the
hover nozzle, and when you are low on oxygen, collect a normal golden coin to
replenish it. It's easier to list the red coins that write a walkthrough to
this episode -

• At the top of the bottle
• Halfway down the bottle, at the side
• Halfway down the bottle, at the side
• Above the large vertical line of coins (easy to spot)
• Suspended above the bottle's bottom
• On the bed, by the arrow signpost
• In the alcove in the rock formation on the bed
• On a rock behind the rock formation on the bed

The shine will appear in front of the rock formation (on the bed of the
bottle).

--------------------------------
Episode 4 - Eely-Mouth's Dentist
--------------------------------

Take the rope up to the ledges ahead, and go left to the waterfall's source
(where the cannon was located in Episode 1), where the old purple Noki will
be waiting for you. Talk to him, then jump down into the waterfall to go under
water. Dive straight down, and dodge the toxic bubbles as you go until you
reach the eel at the bottom. Go inside his mouth and switch to the squirting
nozzle, and start cleaning the black teeth until they are clean and white.
He will close his mouth at some point and spit you back out. At this point,
you will be in need of restoring your oxygen tank, so go to the sides and
grab the coins of the ledges. While you do this he will spin around, and when
you are done his mouth will open up again, so repeat. Keep doing this until
his teeth are clean (it will take a while, but it's the easiest way). When his
teeth are clean he will retreat and leave the shine on the seabed.

--------------------------------------
Episode 5 - II Piantissimo's Surf Swim
--------------------------------------

Go up the rope ahead of you up to the ledges, where II Piantissimo will be
waiting for you. He will race you to the flag on the far side of the level
(by where the long chute in the cliff face is). Simply go straight to it;
jump and hover in the direction of the flag, and use the platforms and hovering
as much as possible to get there. It's fairly easy - just don't go round the
houses like the other guy does. When you get there, touch the flag pole to
finish, and he will give you a shine for winning.

------------------------------
Episode 6 - The Shell's Secret
------------------------------

Go left across the while floating platforms to the brown bouncy end one and
use it to get onto the platform above. Go onto the rope _above_ to the
platform opposite, and take the rope connected to that platform across to
the stem on the other side, and onto the rope connected to the stem. Bounce up
to the platform above. Get onto the small rope and bounce up and when at the
highest point use the hover nozzle to get over to the purple shell, or the
rope that it is connected to. Enter the shell to enter the special stage, which
is perhaps the longest in the game.

Wall jump up and out of the glass case, and onward across the two rotating
platforms. Ground pound the nail in the far corner three times to get a 1-Up
Green Mushroom. Wall jump off the right wall and onto the moving platform,
then across the other two. Climb up the pole, jump off at the top and onto
the rope by the slope. Bounce off the rope onto the ledge on the right, and
wall jump off the dark side wall up the ledge above, and again for the one
after that. To get onto the area above, you will to go to where the gap is
at the side and wall jump off the orange wall, then the dark wall and up onto
the platform. You will need to jump off the orange wall at an angle, and at
about halfway across to make it. Pretty cool, wasn't it?

Go round the corner and across the two rotating platforms. As will all these,
stay in the middle to avoid falling to your doom. Ground pound the right nail
to get another 1-Up Green Mushroom. At this moving tower structure, get onto
one of the ledges with nothing above it and side jump across to progress
upward. After another rotating platform, the shine is yours!

----------------------------------
Episode 7 - Hold it, Shadow Mario!
----------------------------------

As per usual, chase Shadow Mario and spray him as he goes. This will take you
longer than the other Episode 7's as he takes a long trek up the right green
cliffs. Stick at it and he will fall, rewarding you with a shine as always.

-----------------------------
Episode 8 - The Red Coin Fish
-----------------------------

Head to the old Noki in purple at the waterfall's origin (take the rope ahead
to the cliffs above like you have done before) and talk to him, then dive
down into the waterfall to go underwater. Dive down a little and you will see
a mass of floating coins. This is the red coin fish separating, and if you
follow it they will come together to form a fish like structure, with eight
red coins. When it's like this, simply swim into it to get most of the coins
easily. When it separates again, either wait until it comes back together again
or go after the coins then. You don't really need to worry about air much
either as there are more than enough gold coins to take you through. Overall,
very short and easy. The shine will appear at the crater at the bottom of this
area.

--------------
Secret Shine 1
--------------

Go to just about any episode and make your way to the area on the far left
(left of the hidden cliff passages that you use in Episode 2). This is an open
area, with a cave at the far wall. Here, wall jump up until you enter the
alcove on the left, which leads to a passage through the rock. Follow it to the
end and when you arrive at the other side, go left along the thin ledge and
enter the black hole above. This will send you far up the top of the cliff.
Here, climb up onto the top of the tree and enter first person mode. Locate
the golden bird that flies around this area and spray it until it transforms
into a shine, which can be collected below.

--------------
Secret Shine 2
--------------

Complete Episode 6 - The Shell's Secret and reenter it's special stage. Get out
of the glass case and go across the two rotating platforms. Before activating
the red button here, ground pound the far nail in the corner three times for
a 1-Up Green Mushroom. Now ground pound the red button where the red coin
challenge will start, giving you 1:30 minutes to collect all eight coins.

The first is high up on the platform (1), then head up across the moving
platforms where the second coin will be above the second one across, with a
high jump needed to reach it (2). Climb up the pole and jump off at the very
top and hover over to the coin in the air (3). Get onto the rope and bounce
up high, then hover over to the flat top of the slope. Go left for the next
coin (4). Go right across the top to the ledge, up the next ledge and get the
coin in the air there (5). Head up the next ledge, and go round here to the
gap and wall jump and hover from orange wall in to the next coin (6). Wall jump
off the orange wall again and hover over into the ledge opposite, then go round
the corner and grab the coin in midair with a high jump (7). Go across the
white rotating platform here, then perform a high jump on the one after to get
the final coin (8).

The shine will be located at the platform after the next white rotating
platform.

--------------
100 Coin Shine
--------------

There are three methods for this level, one for Episode 2 - The Boss of Tricky
Ruins (Method 1), one for Episode 6 - The Shell's Secret (Method 3) and one for
Episode 8 - The Red Coin Fish (Method 2). Episode 8 (method 2) is MUCH easier
and quicker to get the 100 coin shine with, but involves an underwater section
which some people may detest doing, so the two other methods is there. Do which
one is better for you.

METHOD 1
--------

I will be covering Episode 2 - The Boss of Tricky Ruins. This is another tough
area to get 100 coins in, with some horrid coins to get. You can miss some
coins from the list, but I would aim to get them all. (NOTE - Here I refer to
green platforms, on the far right of the level is a system of green ledges and
such - I'm referring to them).

• When you begin, look to the left and you should see a line of white floating
  bobbing platforms, each having one coin on. There are five platforms, a
  bouncy platform and another white one after that. Collect the coins off the
  first five platforms, that bounce up into the air to collect the line of ten 
  coins. After that, drop down to the next white platform to get another
  coin. (16)

• In the boat hire place (next to the waterfall), smash all the crates in and
  around it to get yourself a healthy seven coins. (7)

• Next to the boat hire place is a boat (fair enough). Get in it, and if you
  look out to the water you will see a large oval of coins. Moving the boat
  using your squirt nozzle, direct yourself to them. Remember not to touch the
  water as it is polluted. This is annoying to direct the boat, but keep at it.
  (20)

• Where the waterfall is, dive under to the left of it to see a line of coins
  going down to the seabed. Follow and collect these coins (a total of ten) and
  there is an extra life at the bottom also. Beware of the fish mind.. (10)

• To the right of the waterfall there is a giant stalk thing with platforms
  that go all around it. At the top of it, go to the ledge above and to the
  right is a red arrow sign that's pointing to the right. To the right is a
  brown tile on the wall, which when you spray reveals an alcove. WITH A COIN!
  (1)

• If you continue up the green ledges, you will see an arrow pointing left.
  To the right of this is an alcove, with a brown tile next to it - spray the
  tile to create an alcove, with a coin. (1)

• When you get high enough up the green ledges (I would say that the sign and
  two alcoves covered in the last point is a good place) hover over to the
  bunch of green ledges to the far right. When your there, use a mixture of
  side jumps, back flips and hovers to get to the very top ledge. Collect the
  rocket nozzle box and use it to get the vertical line of coins above the
  highest ledge. (9)

• Hmmm... Now brace yourself, 'cos this is long. Where the old noki is in the
  level (to the left of the boat hire), spray the tile above him to reveal a
  maze that you have to go through. Using wall jumps, take the right route
  until you get out. Now go left until you reach an arrow on a ledge slightly
  below you. Drop down to that ledge and below to the left, is a platform that
  sticks out. Jump down to that. Enter the alcove, and travel down the tunnel
  inside it. At the end, spray the tile on the wall to make the wall push back.
  Now wall jump this long vertical gap. Enter the second hole to the left.
  Follow the tunnel and drop down the chute at the end. There is now an alcove
  to your right and on the adjacent wall, an alcove with two tiles. Hover to
  there, then fall down the right hand side to get back to the tile that pushes
  the wall back. Squirt the tile, and wall jump again. Now enter the 3rd hole
  on the left, follow the tunnel and drop down, then make your way back to the
  tile that pushes the wall back again. Squirt and wall jump again, but this 
  time the second hole on the right (near the second and third holes to the
  left). Follow it to the end and drop out the end. Now go left and fall so
  that you are at the very bottom of that long vertical shaft. Now wall jump
  to the hole on the left, and follow the tunnel through, at the end there is
  an alcove to the top left - go in. You will be propelled up to the very top.
  Climb the tree ahead and get the coin from the top of it. I would advise that
  you should do some of this as there are a lot of coins to be had here... so
  if you find this too hard or whatever, then go to the base of the shaft and
  wall jump to the left hole at least. (65)

• Go to the maze where the old Noki is, and at the top go right. There will be
  three octopuses here, so jump on their heads and collect the coins after they
  are gone. (3)

• After the first maze, spray the tile that is located to the far right of it.
  This will reveal another maze, with four alcoves (4 coins) along the bottom
  and 4 alcoves (3 coins) along the top. The bottom ones can be gotten to via
  side jumps or backflips. The top alcoves are harder to get, however.. jump
  out of the maze at the top, then hover at the level of the alcoves and
  manoeuvre yourself into the alcoves. This takes up time, so you *might* have
  to redo the maze activation, but take your time. (7)

• At the end of the second maze, you will run into that big octopus boss again.
  There are three small octopuses here also, so jump on their heads to get
  coins, then climb the trees. On the top of each of the two trees are five
  coins (although you may want to save them in case you get hurt by the boss).
  (13)

• When the boss has been disposed of, jump down the tunnel it was sitting on.
  At the bottom, spray the jars that are within the walls to get a coin (and if
  you haven't got them already, a few blue coins too). Also get the six coins
  around the shine spite - BUT DO NOT GET THE SHINE HERE!! When you are done,
  you can exit via the gap in the wall opposite the main jar wall. You will
  arrive by the waterfall. (7)

• SHINE LOCATION - Travel up the green ledges, to where the arrow sign and two
  alcoves are. Here, look out to the level and you will see a giant shell with
  a flag on top ahead of you. Now jump and hover over to it. Get to the top,
  and  cross the rope that connects the two shells together. At the end of the
  rope is your shine. SHINE GET!

• APPROX COIN TOTAL - 159+

METHOD 2
--------

This method covers Episode 8 - The Red Coin Fish. This is easier and quicker
than the other three. A huge thank you for thaMANSTA and Anton Fors for
notifying me about this method. You can get over 100 coins from the 
underwater section alone, so if you wish you can skip straight there.

---
These are points before going underwater to where the red coin fish is-
---

• Where the waterfall is, dive under to the left of it to see a line of coins
  going down to the seabed. Follow and collect these coins (a total of ten) and
  there is an extra life at the bottom also. Beware of the fish mind.
  Also, DO NOT touch the water fall as you will go to the underwater section
  and so because of this, you may not want to do this point. (10)

• In the boat hire place (next to the waterfall), smash all the crates in and
  around it to get yourself a healthy seven coins. (7)

• Hmmm... Now brace yourself, 'cos this is long. Where the old noki is in the
  level (to the left of the boat hire), spray the tile above him to reveal a
  maze that you have to go through. Using wall jumps, take the right route
  until you get out. Now go left until you reach an arrow on a ledge slightly
  below you. Drop down to that ledge and below to the left, is a platform that
  sticks out. Jump down to that. Enter the alcove, and travel down the tunnel
  inside it. At the end, spray the tile on the wall to make the wall push back.
  Now wall jump this long vertical gap. Enter the second hole to the left.
  Follow the tunnel and drop down the chute at the end. There is now an alcove
  to your right and on the adjacent wall, an alcove with two tiles. Hover to
  there, then fall down the right hand side to get back to the tile that pushes
  the wall back. Squirt the tile, and wall jump again. Now enter the 3rd hole
  on the left, follow the tunnel and drop down, then make your way back to the
  tile that pushes the wall back again. Squirt and wall jump again, but this 
  time the second hole on the right (near the second and third holes to the
  left). Follow it to the end and drop out the end. Now go left and fall so
  that you are at the very bottom of that long vertical shaft. Now wall jump
  to the hole on the left, and follow the tunnel through, at the end there is
  an alcove to the top left - go in. You will be propelled up to the very top.
  Climb the tree ahead and get the coin from the top of it. I would advise that
  you should do some of this as there are a lot of coins to be had here... so
  if you find this too hard or whatever, then go to the base of the shaft and
  wall jump to the left hole at least. (65)

• To the right of the waterfall there is a giant stalk thing with platforms
  that go all around it. At the top of it, go to the ledge above and to the
  right is a red arrow sign that's pointing to the right. To the right is a
  brown tile on the wall, which when you spray reveals an alcove. WITH A COIN!
  (1)

• If you continue up the green ledges, you will see an arrow pointing left. To
  the right of this is an alcove, with a brown tile next to it - spray the tile
  to create an alcove, with a coin. (1)

• After the first wall maze, spray the tile that is located to the far right
  of it. This will reveal another maze, with four alcoves (4 coins) along the 
  bottom and 4 alcoves (3 coins) along the top. The bottom ones can be gotten
  to via side jumps or backflips. The top alcoves are harder to get, however..
  jump out of the maze at the top, then hover at the level of the alcoves and
  manoeuvre yourself into the alcoves. This takes up time, so you *might* have
  to redo the maze activation, but take your time. (7)

• Where the octopus boss was (the highest green ledge), there are two trees.
  There is a coin above each of these trees. (2)

• Where the octopus boss was, jump down the tunnel there. At the bottom,
  spray the jars that are within the walls to get a coin (and if
  you haven't got them already, a few blue coins too). Also get the six coins
  around a green mushroom. When you are done, you can exit via the gap in the 
  wall opposite the main jar wall. You will arrive by the waterfall. (7)

• APPROX TOTAL COINS - 100

---
These are points underwater where the red coin fish is. To get here, touch
the waterfall.
---

• There are columns all around the edge of this area - some have either 6 or
  7 coins on. There are a total of 6 columns here, be sure to get them. (38)

• At the far end of the level near the bottom is an open area surrounded by
  large alcoves. There is a large group of these alcoves, with a row of coins
  within them (either a row of 3 or 6 coins). Be sure to collect these. (36)

• The fish, of which is made of normal and red coins, is located swimming 
  around where the alcoves described above are. Just swim into them to collect 
  them. Sometimes the fish will sort of explode, where the coins will be spread
  out massively. When this happens just go after the odd coins nearest until
  it returns to its original fish shaped form. A nice idea is to go from above
  diagonally into the fish, meaning that you get a load at a time. The red
  coins don't add to your total so be sure to use no effort collecting them.
  (30)

• SHINE LOCATION - Where the open area is surrounded by alcoves, is a short
  column by the areas edge. It is floating above this column.

• APPROX TOTAL COINS - 104

• APPROX TOTAL COINS (BOTH AREAS) - 204

METHOD 3
--------

This is yet another method, submitted by Luc Bloom. This one takes place on
Episode 6, The Shell's Secret. He found that this was the easiest to work on
(I haven't tried it myself however) to get the 100 coins. The following is
his own wording. Thanks for submitting this, Luc!

• Behind you, from where you start, there is a path of 50 coins in the water.
  EASY!
• Then underneath the waterfall, 10.
• Optional, very easy crates at the panda's beachhouse: 7.
• Wall-jump into the wall cave at the left end of the bay, 21.
• Now comes the tricky part: Onto the spring, up the cliff. Jump across to the
  green area beneath with the 1-up mushroom behind a boxing glove on a spring.
  Halfway, use your hover nozzle to enter another cave. You can also reach
  this cave with the rocket nozzle, standing on the green area with the 1-up
  mushroom. You can also reach this cave by wall-jumping all the way to the top
  after you've sprayed the grey tile near the bottom of the cliff. Coins in
  cave: 19.
• Other area's like the wall puzzle, the post-squid-cave and water-spray-caves
  still contain some coins but hey, when it's done, it's done!

• APPROX TOTAL COINS - 107+

=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=
 3.09. Pianta Village
=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=

Once you get the rocket nozzle in the plaza, collect it (it's behind the
Grand Pianta Statue) and use it to get behind the Shine Gate. Once behind it,
use it again to get on top of the shine gate, where there will be a red pipe
that leads to the Pianta Village.

-------------------------------------
Episode 1 - Chain Chomplets Unchained
-------------------------------------

Go onward across the bridge and take the path ahead until you reach the base
of the giant central tree that is in the middle of this level. At the base of
this tree is a pool. Squirt away all the lava from the surrounding paths, 
and wait until a chain chomplet arrives. Spray at it until it cools down and
turns into it's original black colour, then grab it up its chain tail quickly.
Pull it back and aim it at the pool at the base of the tree, and let it go
and it will be fired into the pool. Do this with all three of the Chain
Chomplets to get the shine, which can be collected from the top of a nearby
mushroom.

---------------------------------------
Episode 2 - II Piantissmo's Crazy Climb
---------------------------------------

Go over the bridge and approach II Piantissmo here. You will have 30 seconds
to get over to the tree at the far left of the level, where the flag is on
a platform. To get there quickly, waterslide across the paths until you reach
the base of the tree (spray water ahead and dive into it, then hold the analog
stick forward). Climb up the tree and go right onto the platform and touch the
flag pole to finish. You will be rewarded a shine for winning when the other
guy arrives.

------------------------------
Episode 3 - The Gloopy Inferno
------------------------------

You will get your FLUDD pack taken away from you from the get go, and the aim
of this level is to get to the stranded mayor on the golden mushroom in the
middle of the level. Go over the bridge, and go right and round the outside of
the level to the back, where there is a pit and a Pianta standing next to it.
Fall down the pit and ground pound the door to go under the village, which
you have to get around via the mesh. Follow the mesh path ahead, avoiding the
enemies as you go until you reach a hanging panel. Climb down onto it, and
press the B button to hit it and move it across to the next mesh section.
At the other side when it stops, jump off with the A button and WAIT until it
has fallen down before continuing (otherwise you run the risk of climbing back
onto the panel and then falling to your doom).

Carry on down the mesh path and drop down onto the spring at the end. Jump onto
the mushroom and go across the rope. Go left here to get a 1-Up Green Mushroom
at the end, and then back again and go right onto the red mushrooms. Go across
the rope and onto the red mushroom with a small green one on top of it. Use
this to bounce onto the mesh wall. Go through the door and then up onto the
top here to get another 1-Up Green Mushroom, then back down and through the
door again. Go up and hang off the ceiling and go across to another hanging
panel and take it across to the other side. Wait until it drops, and go onward
to the gate in the ceiling. Press the A button here to go through and back up
to the top side of the level. Wall jump out of this pit, and go across the bare
islands in the lava to the wooden structure. Climb up here and collect the
FLUDD pack.

Before going to the mayor, there are three blue coins you can collect only
in this episode with the FLUDD pack, so you might as well as get them now.
There is signature on the floor where the FLUDD pack was - that's one blue
coin. Now drop down and clean up the lava at the front of the level (opposite
the starting bridge) where a giant signature is hidden. Spray this for the
second coin. To get the last one, go over to the far right over the level where
a Pianta is running around on fire. Douse those flames and talk to him to get
the third coin. Now head back up the wooden structure, and spin jump then
hover onto the top of the golden mushroom. Clean the mayor off then talk to
him to receive your shine.

------------------------------
Episode 4 - Chain Chomp's Bath
------------------------------

Head across the bridge and go right to the giant Chain Chomp. Press the B
button at the base of the chain tail, where the nail is, to release him. Grab
one of the water barrels next to here, and then head over to the far left 
corner of the level, where the hot spring is. Leave the barrel on the
T-Junction that is to the right of the pool, and wait on the rounded fruit
tree opposite the hot spring (if you don't then the Chain Chomp won't come
near). When it collides into the barrel he will instantly cool down, when you
then go over to it and grab its chain tail. Pull it to the hot spring (go round
behind it) and it will fall into it. The shine will then appear on top of the
Chain Chomp.

-------------------------------------------
Episode 5 - Secret of the Village Underside
-------------------------------------------

Go over the bridge and look at the thought bubble coming from the Yoshi Egg.
Remember the fruit and go to the far left corner of the level, to the rounded
fruit tree opposite the hot spring. Collect the fruit that Yoshi needs and
take it back to the egg to hatch him. Ride him back over the bridge and
float over the mushroom below to the side, where there is a trail of coins
above it. Now hover across the rest of the mushrooms until you reach the
mushroom with the 1-Up Green Mushroom on. Here, spit slime onto the yellow
slime on the platform next to here to dissolve it. Jump over to this platform
and enter the hole to start the Special Stage.

This stage revolves around the concept of throwing Pianta's to get around. To
get thrown, talk to the Pianta. Make sure that you are in line with the place
that you wish to go to, as the Pianta will throw you directly behind where you
are talking to him, so make sure that you are dead on before talking.
Go ahead to the open area. To get the 1-Up Green Mushroom, stand so that you
are facing the 1-Up Green Mushroom, and are in line with the two arrow sign-
posts and the Pianta. Talk to the Pianta and you will thrown into the mushroom.
Talk to Pianta on the edge to get onto the platform opposite. Talk to the small
Pianta when it's at the edge to go over to the small rectangular platform on
the opposite side.

Talk to the Pianta here when it's at the edge, face on, and he will throw you
up onto the platform above. Talk to the Pianta here to get over to the opposite
platform again - however if some of those enemies get in the way, jump on the
nearest ones and get at the correct angle and talk. For the last Pianta, stand
on the rectangular box and wait for him to walk to the left side (the side
closest to the area where the shine is) and talk to him when he is halfway
across (he doesn't stop) and you will be thrown over. Collect the shine.

----------------------------
Episode 6 - Pianta's in Need
----------------------------

Here you have to find, rescue and clean 10 villagers trapped in the slime
within 3 minutes. Go right after crossing the bridge and spray the three
puddles here (two on the T-Junction and the other to the left of the mushroom)
to uncover 4 Pianta's. Go right to the right section where there is a puddle
as the base of the mushroom with another Pianta. Waterslide down the far right
path and get to the puddle at the back, which is to the right of the hot spring
for the next Pianta. Go past the hot spring and round the corner where there is
a puddle on the path. Go left here and under the bridge overhead where another
puddle is. Follow the path here (as if you were heading back to the giant
bridge at the start) and there will be a puddle on the way. The final puddle
is in front of the pool at the base of the central giant tree.

Once you have rescued and cleaned off all 10 Pianta's, the timer will stop. Now
go back and talk to all the Pianta's that you have just rescued to get EIGHT
blue coins! If you repeat this episode again after then they will give you
eight 1-Up Green Mushrooms instead. Pretty sweet. To get the shine, go back to
the very start of the level and talk to the mayor.

----------------------------------
Episode 7 - Shadow Mario Runs Wild
----------------------------------

As always, follow Shadow Mario around and spray him as his goes. The only
thing that you should watch out for is that he leaves a trail of lava slime
as he goes about. Talk to him once he is defeated for a shine.

------------------------------------
Episode 8 - Fluff Festival Coin Hunt
------------------------------------

Firstly, go left and drop down onto the giant mushrooms below, and head across
them to the mushroom next to the yellow slime platform. Here, jump and hover
over to the mesh wall on the right and climb on top of it. Go to the end and
hover over to the platform opposite and collect the first red coin (1). Now
drop down onto the giant mushrooms below and head back to the start of the
level (use the green mushroom to bounce back up). Go over the bridge, and as
soon as you get off the bridge do a tall jump and hover onto the large tree
leaf that hangs here, and collect the coin (2). Drop back down to the village
and go over to the large grassy area on the left side of the village, where the
third red coin is in the middle (3). Go over to the hot spring in the far left
corner of the level and get the coin in the bowl (4), and then go under the
giant tree next to here and grab the coin from next to the bee hive (5). Now
go opposite the hot spring to the rounded fruit tree, where a coin is hidden
underneath it (6).

Now head over to the right side of the level, where the group of crates are.
Ground pound them until you get the next coin (7). Now head back over to the
rounded fruit tree and jump over to the mushroom opposite. From here, jump
and hover over to the platform on the side of the central giant tree. Keep
going round and up with tall jumps and hovers until you reach the rocket
nozzle box. Collect it, then head over to the giant tree in the far left corner
(next to the hot spring). Climb to the top and head across the leaf that heads
toward the giant central tree. Here, jump and rocket over to the closest leaf
of the giant central tree and head over to the center, where there is a wooden
structure. Hover onto the top of this and collect the final coin (8).

The shine will now appear on the cloud far away in the distance! Go onto the
leaf that is pointing in that direction and wait until a piece of fluff appears
here, hovering over the tip of the leaf. If you watch it when the wind blows,
it you go over to the cloud. Get onto one and when the wind blows you will
be flown over to that cloud, where you can jump over and collect the shine!

--------------
Secret Shine 1
--------------

Complete Episode 5 - Secret of the Village Underside and re-enter it's special
stage. Ground pound the red button to start the challenge, where you have 1:30
minutes to complete it. It is very hard this one, as you have to be at the
right positions for throwing before talking to the Pianta's, and you are
against the clock to boot. Stand next to the Pianta in the open area (so that
you are in line with him and the two sign posts, and facing in the coins
direction) and talk to him to get thrown into the coin and the 1-Up Green
Mushroom. However you may find it quicker to bounce on the Pianta three times
to get this first coin (1). Get thrown up the pink Pianta on the edge and
collect the coin on the box (2). Get thrown over by one of the Pianta's here
to the rectangular platform ahead, then thrown up to the platform above.

Jump onto one of the sides and hover over into the two coins on each side (3,4)
and then hover over the rope suspended in midair behind here. Bounce high up
off this rope to get the coin above (5) then go over the platform that the
rope is connected to and high jump to get the coin above here (6). Hover over
back to the enemy infested area and get the Pianta to throw you back over,
where the last two coins are. These can both be reached by high jumps (7,8).
The shine will then appear on the long block here. Phew! Although the way I
have wrote it makes it sound not too hard, it really is very difficult and it
took me loads of attempts to get this secret shine. Good luck!

--------------
Secret Shine 2
--------------

Go to Episode 8 - Fluff Festival Coin Hunt and get onto the top of the giant
central tree (get the rocket pack from the ledge below and rocket from the
leaf of the giant tree in the far left corner of the level). Rocket up to the
tall wooden structure in the middle, and go into first person view and spray
the sun to reveal an image. Once it is fully sprayed then the shine appears
for the taking.

--------------
100 Coin Shine
--------------

Here I cover the first episode - Episode 1, Chain Chomplets Unchained. This is
VERY hard to get the coins on, and you have to cover all the points in this
list... good luck.

• When you begin, waltz over the wooden bridge and make your way over to the 
  base of the big tree on the left (where there is a large patch of grass).
  Go west from here to see two crates (two coins), then over the path west for
  three crates (two coins), west again for another two crates (two coins) and 
  lastly, west again, another two crates, another two coins. (8) 

• In the center of the level is a HUGE tree (you cannot miss it - lol). At the
  base of this tree there are loads of crates by the pond. Smash all eleven.
  (11)

• On the far right hand side of the level is a LARGE AMOUNT of crates, ready
  to be butt stomped. (20)

• Around the level are tall mushrooms that are on fire. Put these out with the
  FLUDD pack, then butt stomp it in the center to release a bunch of coins to 
  collect. They all have eight coins to be collected after you ground pound
  them...

  South of the sauna, on a higher ledge.

  Left of the level, jump from the big tree in the bottom left of the level.

  From the big southern tree base, head towards the two mushrooms in the north
  east. Get up the blue box ahead of here, and look in the direction of the big
  tree on the left - you should see the mushroom. Now climb the tree and hover
  onto it.

  Go right from the center pond, over the path to a slope. Travel up it, and
  get onto the small mushroom. Then do a side jump / back flip then hover to
  the  burning mushroom ahead.

  Go east from the sauna, and it's there on a higher ledge.

  From the center pond, to the north of it there is a smaller mushroom and then
  a bigger mushroom next to it, of which is alight.

  I would *for sure* do all the burning mushroom coins. (48)

• At the hot spring (at the base of the big tree in the top left), is a giant
  Pianta head and arms made of stone. Butt slam it's nose to get nine lovely
  coins and a blue coin. (9)

• Butt slam the DIRECT middle of the sauna bowl to get thirteen coins! (13)

• SHINE LOCATION - Over the sauna bowl, of which is near the tree in the far
  corner from where you begin. APPROX TOTAL COINS - 110

=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=
 3.10. Corona Mountain
=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=

Once you have completed all the Episode 7's (the ones where you chase Shadow
Mario around) in all seven areas, then you return to Delfino Plaza and the
whole place is flooded! Swim over to the left side of the Shine Gate and
use the umbrella tops to bounce up and then hover over to the green ledges
behind the Shine Gate. Make your way up then follow Shadow Mario into the
cave, which will take you to Corona Mountain.

Change to the hover nozzle and go across the platforms ahead when the spikes
are withdrawn. Now hover over to the burning platform ahead and douse the
flames by hovering over the platform. However watch out, as after a while the
flames return again, so never spend too long standing on these types of
platform. Go onward past another spike platform and collect the 1-Up Green
Mushroom from the platform after it. Hover over the gap here when it's safe
and collect the blue coin from the rock here. Progress past the final set of
fire and spike platforms to reach a large rock area.

Refill your FLUDD tank via the fountain on the left, and ground pound the
crate on the right for a 1-Up Green Mushroom. Now this next section of this
level is quite tricky. You have to command the boat to the island of rock on
the far side. Jump onto the board and face backward and spray with the squirt
nozzle to go onward. Move left and right accordingly to go in the opposite
direction. The boat will sink even with the slightest of touches, so keep it
as far away from pillars and rocks as much as possible. Use the fountains
halfway across if you are in need of a refill. At the end at the island of
rock are blue coins that surround it; I recommend that you get these later
and just get onto the island.

Pop open the rocket nozzle box and equip the rocket nozzle, and then stand
under the shadow of the cloud in the middle of the island and rocket straight
upward (you can go through the bottom's of clouds). Put the camera back to
an over head view to get a better picture of the action, and make your way
up the rest of the clouds. They move in patterns toward the top. If you are
low on water, then fall down to the bottom and get the rocket nozzle again to
completely fill your tank. At the very top go onto the dark cloud to reach the
final boss.

After the cutscene, the boss battle will begin. There are five sections tagged
onto the main area here, each with a symbol on. If you rocket up here and
ground pound at the highest point, then it will smash on impact, and the
section will collapse, so quickly head back onto the main area and continue
before you are taken down with it. If you are a little late then you may be
able to get back up with a last minute rocket blast. Bowser Jr. will fire
Bullet Bills at you as you go. Ignore them. To avoid them, as you approach
the section where you ground pound he will fire them and they will be close
behind. Build up the rocket nozzle before getting there so that you launch up
as soon as you arrive to miss the onslaught of Bullet Bills.

The other danger in this boss fight is Bowser. He will try and scorch you will
his flame breath before you reach each section. Either stop and wait for them
to stop, spray his mouth or what I do, is just walk straight though them.
As you long as you have got enough health you will be fine - if you don't get
hurt by anything else in the battle then you may as well as do this. Once you
have ground pounded all five sections round the main tub area, then the whole
place will collapse and the battle will be over. Enjoy the ending! At the
end you can save your game (you get a Shine for completing it). Now fully
complete the game get the rest of the shines! :D

===============================================================================
                              -----------------
                                4. BLUE COINS
                              -----------------
===============================================================================

This is a list of all the Blue Coins in the game from each area. There are
30 coins in each area (apart from Delfino Plaza and Corona Mountain, with 20
and 10 coins respectively), meaning there is a total of 240 blue coins to
collect in the game. With these coins you can trade them in for shines (10
coins per shine). To trade them, go to the building in the South West of
Delfino Plaza (the small building that the Ricco Harbour enterance is at) and
talk to the racoon at the counter. Happy hunting!

  Once you have completed the game, go to the Delfino Airstrip by paying the
  boat guy next to the left bell tower 10 coins. Once there, go onward and
  collect the turbo nozzle on the left and break through the doors of the
  building on the opposite side. Inside, spray the ice cube to reveil a blue
  coin.

2-3                                                                     [ ] [ ]
  There are crosses on the walls of the Grand Pianta Statue and the left bell
  tower wall. Spray and water slide to each one for a coin at each end.

  Douse the flames of the burning Pianta that is to the West of the plaza (he
  is either on the beach or outside the courthouse area).

  Go to the bell tower to the right of the Grand Pianta Statue. Jump into the
  sea and swim to the back and hover up into the window. The blue coin is
  inside.

6-8                                                                 [ ] [ ] [ ]
  Three blue coins are in the sewers. However, they are all in different areas
  to each other - one in the West (under the sea); one behind the shine gate
  where the green ledges are; and one in the center of the plaza, in front of
  the shine gate. Enter all the man holes and make your way to these areas and
  you should find them.

9                                                                           [ ]
  Clean off the Shadow Mario signature behind the crate that's resting on the
  shine gate.

  Episode 1 - Go behind you when you begin and hover over to the boat. There
  is a coin next to here.

2-3                                                                     [ ] [ ]
  Go up the right green cliffs up to where the second jug pulley combo is.
  There at the side, drop down and hang off the edge and shimmy left to the
  end. Spray here to reveal an alcove with a blue coin. Now carry on going to
  next side of the cliff (take a stop off at one of the alcoves here otherwise
  Mario will get tired and fall) then wall jump up the column at the end, where
  there is a blue coin at the top. 

4                                                                           [ ]
  Head back up to the second jug pulley combo, but instead head up to the ledge
  above (the same level as the wheel) and climb along the ledge. Again, squirt
  at the end to reveal an alcove containing a blue coin.

5                                                                           [ ]
  Go up the green ledges on the right side of the level. Head up and go across
  to the stone ledges on the far right and use the blue spring up and then use
  high jumps up to where the rocket nozzle box is. Use the rocket nozzle up
  from this ledge to get the blue coin high above it.

6                                                                           [ ]
  See Coin 5 - There is a coin in the alcove above the Rocket Nozzle box. It
  is important that you get this one after coin no. 2 as you get fired out
  back to the area below once you collect it. 

7                                                                           [ ]
  Episode 1 - Go to the boathouse in the corner of the area (next to where the
  waterfall should be) and dive under water next to here and follow the coin
  trail down. At the end of this coin trail is a blue coin. Watch out for the
  fish here though. =\

8                                                                           [ ]
  Episode 2 - Head left across to the cliff face and reveal the hidden
  passageways there (like what you have to do normally in this episode) and
  head straight up (ignore the turning) then hover out and left to get the
  blue coin in the middle of these passage ways.

9                                                                           [ ]
  Episode 2 - After the first set of passage ways (see above) and before
  heading up the second set (to the right) there is a Shadow Mario signature
  on the right wall (on the same ledge as where the three Octopuses are).

10                                                                          [ ]
  Episode 2 - Reveal the second passage way set and wall jump up the top
  part of it. There is a blue coin in the alcove above; back flip out and then
  hover into it (or over the alcove then drop down and hang onto the edge then
  climb in to get it).

11                                                                          [ ]
  Episode 2 - After heading up the first set of passageways in the cliff, head
  left and down onto the ledge with the arrow signpost on. Drop down onto ledge
  below and take the passageway here to an alcove to the left. At the end,
  spray the wall tile to make a long vertical shaft to appear. Note that this
  is the basis of the next few shines. From here wall jump up to the first
  alcove on the left, then spray the upper alcove for a coin.

12                                                                          [ ]
  Episode 2 - Head back to the shaft (see coin 10) and wall jump up to the
  first alcove on the right, where a blue coin is.

  Episode 2 - Head back to the shaft (see coin 10) and wall jump up the second
  alcove on the left, then follow the passage round and go down onto the ledge.
  Spray the wall on the left for an alcove containing a blue coin. From here,
  look to the adjacent cliff wall and below for an alcove with 2 brown squares.
  Fall and hover over to this, then spray the right square for coin; now jump
  across to the small ledge opposite and spray the top here for another blue
  coin.

16                                                                          [ ]

  Episode 2 - Head back to the shaft (see coin 10) and wall jump up to the top.
  Head up the stone ledges to the wall of brown squares; the bottom left and
  top right squares have blue coins.

19                                                                          [ ]
  Episode 2 - Go to the very bottom of the tall vertical shaft (far left of
  level) and wall jump up the alcove on the left. Follow the passage through
  to come out to an alcove; head up into the black hole (which shoots you up
  to the very top) then come forward and drop down the front of the cliff (the
  same side as the alcove you were just on). You will land onto a ledge; here
  spray the wall on the left for a blue coin.

20                                                                          [ ]
  Episode 2 - Go up the right cliffs to where the cannon was in the first
  episode and drop down the cliff and hover over into the alcove below for
  a blue coin. You can also melt the ice cube with your FLUDD pack for a 1-Up
  Green Mushroom.

21-22                                                                   [ ] [ ]
  Episode 2 - in the shine room, spray the two large jars in the wall to get
  two blue coins.

23                                                                          [ ]
  Episode 6 - Go to the far left of the area (take the white platforms across)
  where a blue coin is located above the water.

24                                                                          [ ]
  Episode 6 - Go onto the top of the shell - To get there, go left across the
  while floating platforms to the brown bouncy end one and use it to get onto
  the platform above. Go onto the rope _above_ to the platform opposite, and
  take the rope connected to that platform across to the stem on the other
  side, and onto the rope connected to the stem. Bounce up to the platform
  above. Get onto the small rope and bounce up and when at the highest point
  use the hover nozzle to get over to the purple shell, or the rope that it is
  connected to. Now perform a high jump to get onto the top of the shell,
  and then hover over into the alcove the opposite cliff face for a blue coin.

25-26                                                                   [ ] [ ]
  Episode 6 - There are two O's; one by the boathouse, and the other more or
  less opposite. For this you will _need_ the turbo nozzle to get between the
  two (I have done it without it, but doing so is HARD). To get it, head up
  the right cliffs and go to the area next to the waterfall. Here, drop
  down and hover into the alcove below to find the turbo nozzle box (usually
  a blue coin and an ice cube resides here, but its a different story for this
  episode). This will make the two O's very easy indeed.

27-30                                                           [ ] [ ] [ ] [ ]
  Episode 8 - Enter the underwater region. There are tall columns in the
  corners of this area; at their very tops are blue coins (surrounded by yellow
  ones). There are a total of four to collect.

  At the end, ride the boat out to the island platform (where the clouds hover
  above). There are nine blue coins that surround this island; use the boat
  to collect them. Its hard to do (as the boat is a pain to manoeuvre) but it

                            6. SECRETS AND UNLOCKABLES
                          ------------------------------
===============================================================================

------------------
The Sunglasses man
------------------

This Pianta, found in various locations, can give you a pair of sunglasses or
even a Hawaiian shirt according to how many shines you have. If you have 30
shines or more, talk to him and you get a pair of sunglasses (this dims the
screen). Once you complete the game (defeat the last boss) then Mario gets to
wear a Hawaiian shirt (and looks like a drug dealer).

-----------
Bubba Proof
-----------

You can prevent Bubbas (the red fish that drag you underwater in the most
annoying of fashions) by carrying fruit with you when swimming. Instead they
just follow you around (and sometimes even pass through you). Thanks to jelly
soup for contributing this to the GameFAQs cheats page.

---------------------------------------
Accessing Pianta Village from the start
---------------------------------------

You get enter Pianta Village from the start by climbing up the shine gate (as
the entrance to this area is through a pipe on top of there). When I mean
climbing, I mean wall jumping up in the middle, then at the section before the
top you perform a tall jump out then hover back round and climb onto the top
of the shine gate. There isn't any real point in doing this, but it may
interest you.

------------------------------
Skip Episode 1 of Bianco Hills
------------------------------

Well not skipping it, but you can miss the shine and go onto Episode 2. Go and
do Episode 1, and when the shine appears, ignore it and head up the path to
the windmill. Carry on as you would do in Episode 2 - head onto the top of
the windmill, face Petey etc and get the shine. Now you have just done Episode
2 and are going onto Episode 3, without doing Episode 1! Nice!

-----------------------------------------
Strange goings on at the plaza bell tower
-----------------------------------------

Here are two strange events that I have discovered whilst messing around at
the bell tower in Delfino Plaza (the one to the right of the Grand Pianta
Statue). These are just strange occurrences and I doubt they have anything to
do with gameplay or any secrets.

Use the rocket nozzle to get next to the bell of the bell tower, and you can
hear strange cracking noises.

The other one is to stand on the building that is next to the bell tower (it
has the banana on) and have the rocket nozzle. Now position yourself so that
you can see into the inside of the tower - stand so that Mario has his back
turned to the tower and that you are in the middle between the banana and the
tower. Now press L to change the camera view to behind Mario and that should do
it. Once you have it, use the rocket pack to boost up, and you will see a
rocket nozzle pack _inside_ the tower. Strange, huh?

                                   7. FAQ'S
                                 ------------
===============================================================================

=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=

Q. Why is Delfino Plaza all dark?

A. At the start of the game when you have little or no shine sprites the area
   is dark. However the more shines you get the lighter the place gets. When
   you get around the halfway mark or when you complete the game then the area
   is fully lit up.

=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=

Q. Where is the Yoshi egg in Gelato Beach?

A. The egg is located only in Episode 6 - Red Coins in the Coral Reef, on the
   spit. Fruit can be found in the beach hut on the right side of the beach.

=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=

Q. How do I unlock Yoshi?

A. Complete Episode 4 - The Wilted Sunflowers in Pinna Park. Once you have
   done the event in Delfino Plaza, Yoshi egg's will appear throughout the
   game.

=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=

Q. Where is Yoshi in Episode 8 - Yoshi's Fruit Adventure of Ricco Harbour?

A. Yoshi is located in the far left corner, by the market stalls. HOWEVER if
   you haven't got Yoshi yet then he isn't going to be there (see the above
   question for details how.
