    Congratulations on making it to the second half of the game.  Most casual
    gamers would have just stopped after beating the final boss fight for the first
    time, but you knew there was more.  And there is! 120 more stars.  So much
    more, in fact, that you might even need a guide to get through some of the
    harder parts.  Yes, Green Stars can be tough to find, since you always have to
    be on the lookout for that signature glow that lets you know where to find 
    them.  Fortunately, this walkthrough will help you track down those stars that
    are hidden far out of view, or even some of the ones that turn out to have been
    in plain sight all along.

    About Green Stars, Terminology [.04] -=

    First off, there are a few requirements for accessing the Green Star quest.  
    You have to get 120 power stars in total.  Once you do, Lubba will tell you to 
    talk to the green star Lumas on board your ship.  They tell you the second 
    requirement; you have to beat the final Bowser battle again before the quest is 
    unlocked.  Once you beat the level and finish the end credits, you will be 
    treated to a brief cutscene of Green Stars falling across the universe and 
    settling in each galaxy the next time you start up the game.  And so the 
    journey begins.
    
    Each galaxy's guide will be prefaced by the number of green stars it contains,
    and which of those are found in the same level.  For instance, if the first two
    stars are found in the same level, then either one can be gotten by selecting
    "Green Star 1" or "Green Star 2" from the star selection screen, since it will
    take you to the same place with the same setup.  If you missed the first and
    have moved on from the area it was located at, you can still get to the second
    and not have to restart the level and waste any time.
    
    There are a few rules as to where stars are located.  They are always out in
    the open, not hidden in things like boxes or balloons or snow sculptures.
    If you are in a level that ends with a boss fight, the star will always be
    found before you make it that far.  Finally, the first two green stars in every
    galaxy (with the exception of the Cosmic Cove and Space Storm galaxies) can be
    found in the same level, as explained in the previous paragraph.  This holds
    true for galaxies with only two stars.
    
    To get all these stars, I used Luigi.  He has a bit of an edge over Mario in
    jump height, which made a lot of the stars easier.  However, he also recovers
    more slowly from being knocked down, and has about a half-second of lag when
    you start moving from a cold stop, which can be deadly in galaxies where you
    have to be constantly moving (specifically Flip-Out Galaxy).
    
    I will occasionally use different terms to refer to enemies and game features
    to use them as landmarks so you can orient yourself.  Some terms I'll pull from
    the game booklet, and others I'll just make up so you know what I'm talking
    about.  I'll write some of them down here, on the off chance that you're a
    hardcore enough gamer to make it this far but don't know the terminology in the
    Mario universe.
    
    ===============
    
    Checkpoint Flag- the little black Bowser flag that turns to an "M" or "L" when
    you hit it to save your progress at that point if you die.
    
    Launch Star- The large orange stars that you spin to fly long distances to
    reach a new area.  Launch stars that are created by paying Lumas to transform
    are pink.
    
    Mini Launch Star- The smaller reddish stars that you spin to launch you a short
    distance, usually up into the air a bit or to a nearby area.
    
    Teleporter- The small blue shining circles you spin in that warp you to a
    nearby area where you have to defeat a bunch of enemies within a time limit.
    
    Sproutle Vine- The green vines that you slide along when you jump onto them
    
    Thwomp- The huge angry rectangular stone slabs that move up and down trying to 
    crush you
    
    Whomp- The huge angry rectangular stone slabs with arms and legs that chase you
    and try to body-slam you.
    
    Piranha Plant- The spiky red Little Shop of Horrors plants that try to bite you
    
    Paragoomba- Winged Goomba
    
    Koopa- Green turtle that retreats into its shell
    
    Chain Chomp- Giant black rolling balls with pearly white teeth
    
    Flutter Jump- Yoshi's hovering jump
    
    Dismount- Pressing Z and jumping off of Yoshi to gain extra height
    
    Grapple Daisies- The floating flowers that Yoshi can latch onto with his
    tongue and use as a grappling point.
    
    Power Star- The golden yellow stars that are the first ones you get in any
    galaxy

    Sky Station Galaxy [1.1SSG]
    --=--=--=--=--=--=--=--=--=
    Contains three stars, the first two in the same level
    
    -Star 1
    The first star is on the other side of the building at the start of the level,
    on the wall above the green pipe.
    
    -Star 2
    After the first Checkpoint Flag, make your way to the Launch Star past the
    rising yellow platforms.  The star is just behind the white fence on the right
    side.
    
    -Star 3
    Once you make it to the first Checkpoint Flag in the gravity cylinder, head all
    the way to the rear.  Get on the rightmost moving platform and ride it up until
    you reach the area with the Teleporter.  The star is above it.

    Yoshi Star Galaxy [1.2YSG]
    --=--=--=--=--=--=--=--=--
    Contains three stars all in the same level
    
    -Star 1
    At the rear of the area where you get Yoshi for the first time is a raised 
    green hill sticking out of the ground with the Comet Medal on top of it.  The 
    star is above the coin.  Get yourself on top of the hill and Flutter Jump as 
    high as you can, then dismount straight into the star.
    
    -Star 2
    At the end of the first section near the giant orange fruit that turns into a
    star, go over to the right.  The volcano has a little crater on its right side
    with the star in it that you can Flutter over to.
    
    -Star 3
    In the final area, make your way up to the original power star.  Use the 
    grapple daisies to go further up and to the left, and Flutter up to the green 
    star in the top left corner.
    
    
    --=--=--=--=--=--=--=--=
    Spin-Dig Galaxy [1.3SDG]
    --=--=--=--=--=--=--=--=
    Contains three stars, the first two in the same level.
    
    -Star 1
    When you fly over to the second area, consisting of a two-sided planetoid that
    you have to drill back and forth between, go over and stand on top of the red
    metal circle platform.  The view should zoom out, and you'll see the star on 
    top of the red fence at the front of the screen.  Back flip onto the fence 
    where you see the shadow of the star and jump up to claim it.
    
    -Star 2
    Located in the third area, the red and white donut-shaped ring around a black
    hole.  The star is above a Paragoomba hovering over a set of yellow platforms. 
    Triple jump to get it.
    
    -Star 3
    In the second area, the 2D drill zone.  As soon as you bounce your drill off 
    the slanted floor and shoot sideways into the next room, you will see the star 
    above your head.  Get hit by the yellow monster to lose your drill, then do 
    some back flip wall jumping off the dirt to reach it.

    Fluffy Bluff Galaxy [1.4FBG]
    --=--=--=--=--=--=--=--=--=-
    Contains three stars in the same level
    
    -Star 1
    Directly above you as you land in the galaxy.  Go grab a Cloud Suit and use the
    tree near your landing spot to give you some extra height to start off your
    climb through the air.
    
    -Star 2
    Climb the three-cloud staircase to the top of the cliff.  Kill the piranha 
    plant near the tree and stand in its spot.  Switch to first-person view and 
    look out along the cliff wall to your right.  You see the star off in the 
    distance?  Good.  Refill your cloud supply, use the tree to jump off in the 
    right direction, and leap over to the star, making platforms as you go.
    
    -Star 3
    At the very end, after the Toad Captain tells you about the mischievous monkey,
    stand on the wooden platform and look to the left of the mountain.  There is a
    green peak with the star on top.  Jump and cloudify a path to it.

    Rightside Down Galaxy [1.5RDG]
    --=--=--=--=--=--=--=--=--=--=
    Contains two stars in the same level
    
    Star 1-
    In the area with the Checkpoint Flag where the game switches from 2D to 3D, the
    star can be found in the top right corner of the 2D room.  Long jump from the 
    3D space into 2D to build enough momentum to reach it.
    
    Star 2-
    After you switch back from 3D to 2D, make your way past the Thwomps trying to
    crush you.  Jump on top of the rightmost one and leap off to the right when it
    rises up to reach a hidden alcove with the star high above the floor.

    Flip-Swap Galaxy [1.6FSG]
    --=--=--=--=--=--=--=--=-
    Contains two stars in the same level
    
    Star 1-
    On the second set of flip tiles, use a triple jump from the solid ground to
    reach the star (it helps to have the red tiles up)
    
    Star 2-
    Past the Checkpoint Flag, in the second Chain Chomp rolling area.  Look up to
    find it.  Use a triple jump or a backflip/spin, but remember that spinning in
    midair will switch the platforms over.

    Star 1-
    On top of the back left parapet of the castle at the start of the level.  Stand
    on the platform with the Mini Warp Star and long jump off the back.  Use the
    high jump from the lava burn to propel yourself onto the rear wall.  Wall jump
    and spin your way to the top of the parapet.
    
    If you don't want to lose any health, use BluesEclipse's solution:
    "Get on top of the Thwomp, then back flip and wall jump spin to make it onto 
    the roof.  Once you're there, just follow the wall to the star".

    -Star 1
    On the puzzle block you start on, the backside has a trampoline leading to a ?
    box.  The star is above the box.  Carefully use the trampoline to wall jump off
    the side of the box and land on top of it, then jump up to the star
    
    -Star 2
    Located after the Checkpoint Flag, in front of the upright plank of wood. Run 
    to the end of the path and wall jump off of the vertical plank into the star 
    before the buzz saw cuts it down.  If you can get there fast enough, you can 
    turn and back flip onto the wall to gain enough height.  If not, then try 
    triple jumping as you approach it, hitting the wall at the top of the third 
    jump.
    
    If you miss and the wall is cut down, DetroitDJ offers this solution:
    "Go past the remaining circle piece, and start to run back towards the star.  
    Jump twice and triple jump off the top of the circle to gain enough height to 
    spin into the star".
    
    -Star 3
    As you move on past the second star, you should see this one under a board in

    board in front of the buzz saw and wait until the floor falls down enough to 
    reach the star.

    When you get into the second cannon, the star will be in the extreme upper left 
    of the cannon's range.  Clever.

    Melty Monster Galaxy [6.1MMG]
    --==--==--==--==--==--==--==-
    Contains three stars, the first two in the same galaxy
    
    -Star 1
    Just above the first Warp Star.  Use the blue stars to fling yourself at it, 
    but watch out for that Hippolavamus (heh... see what I did there?)
    
    -Star 2
    Once you make it back to the area with the giant magma waterfall, use the first 
    tornado to shoot yourself into the star, in the nook at the upper left corner.  
    You should see its shadow on the lava.
    
    -Star 3
    Near the end of the rock maze, on the platform where you have to use the rubber 
    fences to reverse your direction.  It's off the right side of the platform next 
    to the second rubber fence.

    On the first gear past the Winged ? Block, it's at the very top of the stone's 
    rotation.
    
    -Star 2
    In the large box where you have to change the direction of gravity with the 
    green arrow.  The star is at the top right corner of the box's outer border.  
    Wait until you shift gravity to reach it.
    
    -Star 3
    At the very end, get on a gear and ride it past the Power Star out into the 
    open air, where the green star is waiting just as the gear starts to fall.

    -Star 1
    When you climb the ramp up to the platforms that retract into the wall, the 
    star is underneath the third and final platform at the bottom of the gap.
    
    -Star 2
    At the very top of the fortress.  Get on the Whomp's head after it tries to 
    body-slam you and balance on it as it gets back up.  Jump off to claim the 
    star.
    
    -Star 3
    Out beyond the extended cloud platforms with the silver star on them over the 
    pool of water.

    In the second underwater cavern with the light-shy tentacles, the star is 
    behind a twisted stalactite (or stalagmite.  What do you call it when it is 
    connected at both the top and bottom?) on the left side of the room.  (Oh, 
    right, they're called columns. Duh.)
    
    -Star 2
    When you swim into the Warp Star at the end of the first section, just fall out 
    of it.  You'll land on a ledge, with the star on the right side behind a wall.

    star is in the bottom right corner of the lowest level of lava.
    
    -Star 2
    When you get Yoshi after the gravity cylinder, you can see it off in the 
    distance beyond the rope bridge.  Either jump and Flutter your way over to it, 
    or just bring some clouds with you from the gravity cylinder.

    Using the concept of Mario as a map of the area, the first star is under a 
    green square right above his ear.

    The second star is under a green platform on the left side of the area, on his 
    elbow.

    Take the left fork when the track separates.  On the center ramp with the coins 
    and 1up, it's above the mushroom.  Carefully roll down the ramp and jump off at 
    the end.
    
    -Star 2
    At the end of the track, just before the green circle platform, the star is off 
    the track in a gap on the right.

    water, the star is above the start of the path.  Use a careful triple jump to 
    reach it.

    Do a long jump off the back of the final platform where the Power Star shows 
    up.

    -Star 1
    On the right side of the wall next to the starting warp pipe.  Wall jump back 
    and forth between the first two red and blue walls to get up to the 1up 
    mushroom on top, and fall off the side into the star.
    
    -Star 2
    In the very last section, it's on the right side of the wall jump walls at the 
    very top before the Power Star.  I would recommend going all the way up to the 
    top and smashing the crystal to kill the Cosmic Clones so you have some time to 
    breathe and orient yourself before getting it.  But mostly just to kill those 
    darned dirty clones.  God I hate them so.

    Well, that's it.  You've gotten all the green stars, and unlocked the final 
    galaxy.  But your challenge is far from over.  I'm sorry to tell you, but if 
    any of these stars gave you trouble, then the final two hundred forty-second 
    star is going to have you beating your brains out.  Remember to wear your wrist 
    strap so you don't throw the remote at your TV in frustration.  Speaking of Wii 
    remotes, I would recommend you get a second player to help you get the last 
    star.  I hate to admit it, but that's what I ended up doing the first time.  
    Afterward, sit back, relax, and bask in the glow of your achievement.
