This level introduces the Spikes, an enemy that stands still throwing spiked rollers that need to be avoided. At the start head up the steps and deal with the Spikes and Galoombas. Use the ? Block to find a Super Bell , an indicator to climb the wall a little ways back to find the Stamp . Head up the ramp then into the pipe where you need to step on a bunch of Switch Panels while avoiding spiked rollers from the Spikes. Once completed, Green Star #1 appears and you can return to the outside.
