Star Coins

  • Star Coin 1: You need a Hammer Suit for this Star Coin. 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. If the player were to use the Hammer Suit (other Powerups won't work), they could slowly walk on the ground, then jump while they're in the Air Current. This'll allow them to enter the pit and grab the Star Coin.
  • 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.
