Another adventure with Captain Toad! This one is a bit trickier than the last but still completed easily.

Head through the door then ride the glowing block upwards (tap it on the GamePad) and dash across the Donut Blocks to Green Star #1 . Move down the ramp and turn the camera so you can see the doors. Take the left one to reach the second level with Green Star #2 then the right one to appear at an area higher up. Now head down the path, using the glowing block to reach an area with two more. Step on the first one and raise it, then move to the second one and raise it. It comes full circle when you use the original block to raise up and reach Green Star #3 .

Move the glowing block back now and go through a path underneath the ramp to reach Green Star #4 . Head up the ramp now and dash across the Donut Blocks to reach Green Star #5 . Don’t mind the Big Boo, it can’t catch you and once you’re over top the final Green Star just turn to face him.

This time around, you’ll be using the gamepad as well as normal controls. At the top, drop down the dougnut block to reach the final Star (right).
