Star Coins

  • Star Coin 1: Near the start of the level there is a block enclosure that houses the first Star Coin, the only way to get inside it is to have the Bomb Spike throw a bomb at you and blow it up.
  • Star Coin 2: Immediately before the checkpoint there will be a coin formation right on the two moving platforms. Directly above the formation is a hidden block that unveils a beanstalk that will lead you to the second Star Coin.
  • Star Coin 3: Near the very end of the level instead of taking the pipe to the exit wait for the elevator to go below it and the third Star Coin will await you
