Star Coins

  • Star Coin 1: Near the start, this Star Coin will be in plain sight next to a Big Dry Bones. You must carefully use the wrap-around feature to go from the left wall and appear on the right, without hitting the Big Dry Bones.
  • Star Coin 2: After the first few Big Dry Bones, this Star Coin will be in plain sight on the left of the screen. Simply run and jump to the right wall and you'll reach it.
  • Star Coin 3: At the end, this Star Coin will be in plain sight. To get it, you must first activate a ! Switch at the top of the level, then go back down and use the Red Blocks to activate a ? Switch. This ? Switch will destroy some Stone Blocks, which'll allow you to get the Star Coin.
