Right at the beginning you’ll meet a Conkdor. Trick it into missing you then jump on it’s head, too easy. Claim the Super Bell from the nearby ? Block then climb the back wall to Green Star #1 . Continue right through the sand pits and passed some more Conkdor. You can climb the wall here to find a Gold Pipe which leads to a room with a Gold P Switch . Pressing this causes coins to fall down the gap in the room, but you can jump back and forth across to collect a bunch of them.

Climb the back wall to find a Star (left). Climb another wall further on to find a Gold Pipe (right).

Back through the pipe, continue right to the Red Ring and run circles around the Conkdor collecting the Red Coins for a Super Bell . Dash up the ramp or defeat the Conkdor as you climb to the Checkpoint Flag. Move across the moving platform to a Roulette Block then past all the Conkdor on the narrow walkway. When you reach the Conkdor at the center of four blocks, trick it into smashing them to reveal Green Star #2 .

Have the Conkdor destroy the bricks (left) for a Star (right).

From here, run up the sandfall to the left to find a Green +Clock and a ? Block before proceeding. Cross over the raised platform, grabbing the Stamp along the way to find Captain Toad being chased by a Conkdor. Defeat the Conkdor to be given Green Star #3 then dash through the weaving bridge to the Goal Pole.

You will find the Stamp (left) in the open on the way to the Goal Pole. Defeat the Conkdor attacking toad for the final Star.
