Ropeblast Tower (or World 1-Towernsmb2.png) is the tower and the fourth level of Goldleaf Plains in Newer Super Mario Bros. DS. It takes place in a dark tower with many tightropes and Banzai Bills. Bowser Jr. is fought at its top.

Ropeblast Tower is unlocked by completing Snailicorn Grove or the secret exit of Chopwood Cavern. Completing its normal exit will unlock Wiggler Woods, and completing its secret exit will unlock World 1-Cannon.png.

Star Coins

  • Star Coin 1: This Star Coin appears right at the start of the level. Simply stand still on the tightrope over it to fall down and get it.
  • Star Coin 2: You need to be Super Mario or up to get this Star Coin. Near the start will be a Star Coin under some Brick Blocks. Simply ground pound the Brick Blocks and get the Star Coin.
  • Star Coin 3: After the checkpoint, there'll be a Banzai Bill. Carefully use it to jump up into an area to the right of the screen. Enter the door, then jump across the tightropes to get the third and final Star Coin.

Secret Exit

This level features a secret exit, which'll lead you to World 1-Cannon.png. At the end of the room where the third Star Coin is found, jump up over the wall to the right. Run right, then enter the hidden door. This'll lead you to an outdoor section, and at the end of this section will be the secret exit.

Enemy Count

Note: Respawning Banzai Bills don't count.
