This page offers a guide on It’s Shadow Mario! After Him!, which is the 7th episode in Gelato Beach.
Spray Shadow Mario
Tip: If you lose sight of Shadow Mario, use high up platforms to get a better view of the beach! The palm trees, mirrors and tops of the cliff are great viewpoints!
In this episode, you’ll need to chase Shadow Mario around and spray him using the spray nozzle on your FLUDD pack. Shadow Mario will run quite fast in this episode and will perform a lot of fancy jumps in an attempt to get away from you. Your goal is to just keep up with him and spray him with water wherever possible. He will run around the entire map, including up on the tops of the cliffs and around the towers - make sure you’re ready to perform some fast jumps to keep up with him!
Luckily though, there’s no time limit in this episode, so you can take as long as you need to spray him with the necessary amount of water needed to defeat him in this level. The Shine Sprite will spawn near where you defeat him.
