This level will test your patience and timing so it’s likely you’ll die a few times, just don’t get discouraged and take a break if you need to. At the start wait for blue Beep Block to change over to the pink one then cross to find a Double Cherry inside the blocks. Cross over to the next platform and claim another Double Cherry before crossing the mismatched bridge.

Start on one color then time your jumps to the middle section and all the way across. Watch out for the Boomerang Bros. since you need your clones to hit the P Panels in the back for some coins. Step onto the pink Beep Block then time your jump over to the blue one where another Boomerang Bro awaits. Defeat him then work your way to the back side where Green Star #1 rests on the blue Beep Block, be sure to time your run then enter the Warp Box.

Use clones to activate the dual P Switch (left) for coins. Jump across the Beep Blocks to reach the first Star (right).

Hopefully you still have some clones as you defeat another Boomerang Bro and find another Double Cherry . Ascend the stairway of alternating Beep Blocks and grab another Double Cherry if you don’t have at least 4 clones. At the top use the Checkpoint Flag and the Multi-Vator that needs 4 players to raise up to the Stamp .

Get four clones into the multivator to reach the Stamp.

Likewise, you can summon other characters in with other controllers or use a Cat Suit. Make your way down the opposite end of Beep Block steps to another Warp Box . In this final area you’ll encounter two more Boomerang Bros, defeat them then claim the Green +Clocks and another Double Cherry before entering the pipe. Hit the P Switch in this room then collect all the Blue Coins to spawn Green Star #2, this is obviously easier with a bunch of clones.

Back outside, you’ll face the hardest part of the level. You need to slide all the way down the slope but the Beep Blocks will force you to jump back and forth. Try to keep at least 2 clones alive by the time you reach the bottom. Hit both P Panels at the bottom to get Green Star #3 then defeat the Boomerang Bros. on your way to the Goal Pole.

Enter the Warp Pipe and collect all the coins (left) for a Star. Use clones to activate the P-Switch before the Goal Pole for the final Star (right).
