Icecrack Citadel (or World 5-Towernsmb2.png) is the tower and the third level of Moonview Glacier in Newer Super Mario Bros. DS. It contains Bob-ombs and ice blocks that can be broken. Bowser Jr. is fought at its top.

Icecrack Citadel is unlocked by completing the normal exit of Everfrost Hole or Blizzard Bluffs. Completing it will unlock Snowstorm Ridge and a Star Coin Sign blocking Precarious Byway.


Boss Battle

Bowser Jr. retains his charging attack from his last four fights, but will also speed up and jump as he takes damage. Just like in the last four towers, damage equal to three stomps will defeat him. Keep in mind that bombs will fall from the ceiling, and Bowser Jr. can fall on his back from their explosions.

Star Coins

  • Star Coin 1: Grab a bomb and blow up the blocks on the right with it at the starting area.
  • Star Coin 2: In the second area, there will be a Warp Pipe blocked by some blocks that can be destroyed with a bomb. After destroying the wall, Mario can crawl through to a chamber where he has to bump a Bob-omb to an ice wall that is blocking the way to the Star Coin.
  • Star Coin 3: Just before the boss area, Mario can blow up the wall to the left with another bomb and enter the pipe that is in that area. When he goes through, Mario will pop out outside the citadel, where the third Star Coin is, on an ice platform. Mario has to watch his footing getting the Star Coin here, as the platform is slippery and falling off will cause him to hit the ground hard and die.
