This page offers an overview of Flipswitch Galaxy. Flipswitch Galaxy is located in the Terrace dome and is available when you have collected 7 Power Stars.

Painting the Planet Yellow

The main objective to get the Power Star for this level is to turn each of the blue panels yellow. You do this by stepping on the tile which will then change to yellow. However if you step on a yellow tile it will turn back to blue. All panels need to be yellow for the Power Star to appear.


This section offers a list of enemies in this level.

  • Electric rails – Electric rails are the first hazard you will encounter and will be damaged if you touch them. You will need to avoid the electric rails by jumping over them or wait for an opening as they move around the platforms.

  • Spike Traps – Spike Traps are spiked platforms that move in a set pattern around the planet that can block you from flipping the Flipswitch Panels. You can jump on top of the traps to help you reach a certain panel without affecting other panels you might have already flipped. Just try to avoid the spikes on the sides.

  • Jump Beamer – Jump Beamer is a stationary enemy which will fire a laser in a circular pattern. You can avoid this by simply jumping over the laser as it approaches you but just be careful when attempting to multiple hazards at once. They can’t be destroyed and only act as an obstacle while you complete the puzzle.

Use the Jump Beamer to reach the Power Star.
