Cloudbolt Chasm (or World 7-4) is the sixth level of Cirrus Heavens in Newer Super Mario Bros. DS. Like the other levels in this world, it takes place in the sky, but this time in a thunderstorm with blood-red rain in addition to autoscrolling. Thunder Clouds make an appearance here.


Star Coins

  • Star Coin 1: This star coin is surrounded by indestructible Wood Blocks. Let the thunder cloud above you zap the wood blocks, opening up the way to the first Star Coin.
  • Star Coin 2: Also located right under indestructible wood blocks, let the thunder cloud zap the wood blocks again to open up way to the Star Coin.
  • Star Coin 3: Throw fireballs at the Piranha Plant blocking a yellow Warp Pipe, then enter it to find not only the third and final Star Coin, but the secret exit as well.

Secret exit

See the instructions for the third Star Coin. The secret exit comes within the third Star Coin room.
