World 5-Toad: Captain Toad Plays Peek-a-Boo

Jarrod Garripoli

You will have another adventure here with Captain Toad, with this one involving those blocks that require either the touchscreen (when playing handheld) or the cursor (press L or R to bring it up). Head through the door, then ride the glowing block upwards and dash across the Donut Blocks to Green Star #1. Turn the camera and move down the ramp, rotating the camera more here until you can see a bunch of doors. Take the left one to reach the second level with Green Star #2, then enter the right door by the star to reach a thin ledge that is hard to see without moving the camera.

(1 of 2) It’s easy to fall off this thin ledge after dropping from the door

It’s easy to fall off this thin ledge after dropping from the door (left), You can use the flashlight on Toad’s helmet to defeat the Peepas (right)

Now head down the wooden path and drop off to the area where you see another star. Follow this path, being aware of the Boo that will appear (Captain Toad’s helmet light can defeat the Boo), and move the block there out of the way, allowing Toad to drop to another area with two more blocks. Step on the first one and raise it, then move to the second one and raise it. Things will come full circle here, as you will want to be standing on the one block you just moved out of the way. While standing on it, move it to grab Green Star #3, then wait for it to return to its original position.

Go through the passageway and try to use Toad’s light on his helmet to clear out some of the Peepas. Collect Green Star #4, which was in the middle of the ring of Peepas, then head up the ramp. Follow this all the way to the end, moving quickly to avoid the Big Boo, and ride the donut block down to Green Star #5, ending the level.
