Star Coins

  • Star Coin 1: Near the start of the level, there's a red Warp Pipe and blue Warp Pipe over a pit, with both of them pushing the player away. There are two ways to get this Star Coin: the easier method requires the Hammer Suit; the player must use it to sesist the oncoming Air Current, then drop down into the pit and grab the Star Coin. The second method is difficult, but is possible, and can be done with any powerup. The player must walk slowly on the ledge parallel to the end of the red pipe facing you, then press the swim button only once just upon passing the large magenta anemone, allowing you to drop past the currents and get down to the Star Coin in the pit.
  • Star Coin 2: After the checkpoint, there'll be a section where you're continuously being pushed down by Air Currents. Try to stay in the middle of this area, while avoiding the Cheep Cheeps. After some of these Cheep Cheeps, there'll be a section where the sides of the stages try to pull the player towards them, but the middle still pushes you down. Stay in the middle, and you'll reach the Star Coin.
  • Star Coin 3: After the second Star Coin, there'll be a section where you're being pushed right while avoiding Mega Cheep Cheeps. After you see a sign pointing up in this section, quickly get up into a space in the ceiling. This'll lead you to the third and final Star Coin.
