Take the pipe to the next World, or so you think. Another fun house descends to spoil your progress. At the right side of the room is a ? Block with a Double Cherry , grab it then ride then gondola.

Boss: Motley Bossblob

He doesn’t look to intimidating to start, but Motley soon surrounds himself with metallic blobs. Avoid the large jumps and stomps that he uses to attack you. After the final large ground pound Motley turns into Blobs and his clown form is revealed. Grab the Double Cherry that pops out and go after the clown, but if you can’t reach him at least smash the blobs. If you smash all of them then the clown will be left without blobs, but hitting him summons a fresh batch of them. Motley will jump more and more after you hit him but it’s easy to avoid then counter.

When the boss breaks up (right), jump on the clown to damage him.

When the boss breaks up (right), jump on the clown to damage him.

After three hits Motley goes down and the Green Star is yours!
