This level is only available when there is a Cosmic Comet in orbit of Honeyhive Galaxy.

Cosmic Race

Once again you meet your speedy nemesis, Cosmic Mario! This time, you’ll need to race him in Honeyhive Galaxy. You’ll need to perform a few backflip jumps to complete this level though. When you reach the waterfall, you’ll need to jump onto the small brown block and face away from the cliff to backflip onto the ledge. You’ll then need to do the same thing again when you’re on the next platform. This can be tricky, but the Cosmic Mario also stumbles at this section, so you have a little room for error.

Reminder: Backflip jumps are performed by crouching using ZL and jumping using A/B.

When you reach the higher platform, run down and jump into the hollow tree trunk. You’ll remember this little slide area from your run through of other levels in Honeyhive Galaxy. From there you’ll need to perform a jump from the big brown block onto the higher platform. You can either backflip again or triple jump.

Finally, you’ll need to jump across the platforms to reach the Power Star. Make sure you avoid the honey covered patches as they’ll slow you down.
