Chopwood Cavern (or World 1-2) is the second level of Goldleaf Plains in Newer Super Mario Bros. DS. It takes place in an underground cave with many logs.


Star Coins

  • Star Coin 1: Near the start, this Star Coin will be in plain sight. Just jump on the moving platforms to reach it.
  • Star Coin 2: After the first two Piranha Plants, use a Brick Block near the top of the screen to get to a secret area above. This little area will have the second Star Coin.
  • Star Coin 3: You'll need to be Super Mario or up to get this Star Coin. Immediately after the checkpoint, go down a green Warp Pipe at the bottom of the screen. This will lead you to a room where you must ground pound through a bunch of Brick Blocks. Along the way, you could stop ground pounding by pressing the up button, and get some Coins. After a bit, you'll have to stop to get the third and final Star Coin.

Secret Exit

This level features a secret exit, which'll lead you to an Item House and a shortcut to Ropeblast Tower. This secret exit is pretty easy to get. After the third Star Coin (or just after the checkpoint), go into the red Warp Pipe in the group of green Warp Pipes. You'll then find the secret exit.
