World 5-3: Backstreet Bustle

Jarrod Garripoli

Welcome to another level that has a short 100 seconds timer, so you will need to be quick. Additionally, this level has Multi-Vators in it, so that means there will be Double Cherries present. Of course, if you’re playing in multiplayer with other people, this becomes a little easier. Despite the Double Cherry and Multi-Vators, though, a Cat Suit will also work, as the walls aren’t that high.

(1 of 2) Ground Pound this spot to get the first Green Star

Ground Pound this spot to get the first Green Star (left), Four characters are needed to get to the second Green Star (right)

As soon as you start the level, look to the left and you should be able to spot a broken floor tile. Once you do, Ground Pound it to reveal Green Star #1. Straight ahead will be a ?-Block, so hit it to spawn a Double Cherry, then ride the Multi-Vator across the blue lava. From there, you can find another Double Cherry in one of the ?-Blocks to the left, as well as one more to the right. This will put you at a total of four characters, so as long as you don’t get hit, you can use all of the Multi-Vators.

(1 of 2) You can simply drop down here to grab the third Green Star

You can simply drop down here to grab the third Green Star (left), You will need Toad in order to get the Stamp in this level (right)

Take the “4” Multi-Vator on the left side to the upper ledge, where Green Star #2 is waiting, then you can drop off to collect Green Star #3. You will need Toad in order to collect the Stamp on this stage, as the button on the right side requires using him. A good idea is to collect all the Green Stars in one run, then replay the stage again with Toad to get the Stamp. Once you’ve collected everything, go ahead and touch the Goal Pole.
