This page offers an overview of Good Egg Galaxy. Gusty Garden is located in the Bedroom dome and costs 24 stars to unlock.

Whenever you do a different star, the galaxy will alter or new planets will be available. Each star challenge will have its own section with a guide on all of the enemies in that level.

Bunnies in the Wind

The goal of this level is to make your way across the galaxy to reach the Bunny Maze and then chase the Star Bunny to earn a Power Star.


  • Goombas - Goombas will simply run at you and try to damage you by touching Mario. To defeat them, spin attack them then run at them to kick them away, or just jump on their head.

  • Piranha Plants - Piranha Plants will try to bite Mario. They have a fairly large range, so you’ll have to be quick if you want to defeat the plant before it bites.

  • Spiny Piranha Plants - The Spiny Piranha Plants require a little more work to defeat than the standard Piranha Plants. You’ll need to spin attack on their head when they try to bite you and slam their head into the ground. Then, when you’ve stunned it jump on its head to finish him off.

Jump on its head to defeat it!

  • Monty Moles - Monty Moles will throw spanners at Mario and retreat quickly underground when you approach. You won’t be able to jump on their heads, instead, you’ll want to either shoot them with some Star Bits or groundpound close to them to make them dizzy and then you can jump on them.

  • Slurples - Slurples will latch onto Mario’s head, slowly draining life from him as though he is being suffocated. Mario’s movement speed will also be reduced whilst they’re attached to his head. To get rid of them, either spin or shoot star bits at them.

  • Flipbugs - The Flipbugs in this level won’t attack you since they’re scared of normal Mario. You can spin attack them or jump at them to defeat them.

  • Thorny flowers - Thorny flowers will prick you if you go near them. You cannot spin attack or jump on them. The only way to get rid of them is to spin a coconut or a green bulb sprout at them.

  • Petapeta - They are only visible when Mario isn’t moving and if he moves, the Petapeta will be invisible. The Petapeta can be located if it’s invisible by looking out for footprints. If you spin attack where the freshest footprints are, you’ll be able to hit the Petapeta, making him visible and incapacitated. Jump on the incapacitated Petapeta for a bunch of Star Bits.

The Dirty Tricks of Major Burrows

During this level, you will need to make your way over to Major Burrows’ planet so you can defeat him in a boss fight!

New Enemies

  • Undergrunts - Undergrunts are a type of mole that burrow around planets. To defeat them, you’ll need to groundpound in their vicinity and then when they’re stunned, jump on their heads.

Groundpound the area near the Undergrunt to stun them!

  • Wigglers - When wigglers are yellow, they move slowly. But if you jump on their heads, they’ll turn red and move very quickly. If they run into you, you’ll be damaged. To defeat them, you can either spin to incapacitate them and then jump on them, or jump on them twice in a row.

  • Boulders - Boulders will essentially just run over Mario if he’s in their path. To break them, you need to spin attack their ruby core, which is easier said than done!

Other Enemies

  • Montys
  • Wigglers
  • Slurples
  • Flipbugs
  • Thorny flowers
  • Monty Mole
  • Goombas
  • Piranha Plants

Boss Enemy - Major Burrows

When you arrive on the new planet, you’ll find Major Burrows chasing after a Star Bunny. To help out the Bunny, you’ll need to groundpound near the mole to stun it. Then, spin attack him to damage him.

Major Burrows will now begin to chase you! You can’t jump on its shell as it is spiky and will damage you. You’ll need to wait until he emerges and then groundpound near him to stun him again. Spin attack him again to damage him some more.

In his final phase, Major Burrows will be angry and red. He will burrow and speed around faster than before. You will need to stun him again using a groundpound, however, don’t try to spin attack him though as he will run at you and damage you. Instead, as he’s running at you, groundpound again! This will stun him and make him run away from you. Quickly chase after him to spin attack him - he will only run for a short period and then he’ll burrow into the ground and you’ll need to repeat the process again.

Major Burrows is just a big boss version of the undergrunts.

There is also a Daredevil Comet version of this boss fight.

Gusty Garden’s Gravity Scramble

During this level, you’ll need to make your way through the Gusty Garden galaxy to get to the gravity blocks. Then, to succeed you’ll need to make your way across the blocks to get to the Power Star.

New Enemies

  • Gold Chomp - The Golden Chomp acts like a regular chomp and can only be killed using a Rainbow Star. The Golden Chomp in this level is actually a Hidden Star Level.

  • Big Amps - Big Amps are large electrical orbs that will electrocute you if you touch them. There are a fair few in this hidden area that are rotating around the caged Green Star.

Other Enemies

  • Goombas
  • Piranha Plants
  • Monty Moles
  • Flipbugs
  • Boulders
  • Slurples
  • Thorny flowers
  • Petapeta

The Golden Chomp is hiding a hidden Power Star!
