Super Mario 3D World + Bowser's Fury

World Crown-Mystery: Mystery House Marathon

Jarrod Garripoli

You will have to plow through a total of 30 challenges in order to fully complete this level. If you fail at all, whether in not obtaining the Green Star in time or losing a life, then you have to start over from the very beginning. Remember that you have ten seconds to complete each room, as well as collect the star. Once you get the Cat Suit, it’s best to keep it until the end, as it will prove useful in a few rooms past the required ones.

  • Green Star #1 - Defeat three Koopa Troopas.
  • Green Star #2 - Jump across the swinging platforms, with the star being a jump away from the final one
  • Green Star #3 - Toss two Brolders onto P Switches, step on the third yourself.
  • Green Star #4 - Grab the Fire Flower and light all four torches.
  • Green Star #5 - Avoid the Peepas by jumping until you reach the Green Star.
  • Green Star #6 - Break a box in the top-right corner.
  • Green Star #7 - Defeat a Goomba and six Mini Goombas.
  • Green Star #8 - Toss a baseball down after the Para-Biddybuds pass.
  • Green Star #9 - Defeat the Hop-Chop at the far end and Ground Pound on the Springboard to reach the top of the platform.
  • Green Star #10 - Thwomps will reveal the lighted path, just ride a Thwomp up top.

  • Green Star #11 - Quickly enter an Ice Skate and ride past the Walleyes.
  • Green Star #12 - Grab the Super Bell and hit the P-Switch on the right side, then quickly climb back to the left side.
  • Green Star #13 - Climb the walls that have the arrows on them for the fastest ascent. There is a spare Super Bell at the glowing point near the top if you Ground Pound it; get it after grabbing the star.
  • Green Star #14 - Time your leap on the Beep Blocks then climb to the Green Star.
  • Green Star #15 - You must quickly ascend, resting only for a brief second between climbs.
  • Green Star #16 - Spin Jump into the center or climb the wall after the Fuzzies pass.
  • Green Star #17 - Dash straight after the Rabbit. You can use the cursor/touchscreen to freeze the rabbit, if necessary.
  • Green Star #18 - Grab a baseball and use the Jump Panel while moving right. Release at the top of your jump to hit the P-Switch.
  • Green Star #19 - Run around the wheel to rotate it, then claim the Green Star from the center.
  • Green Star #20 - Let the Bullies dash at you, then knock them off balance into the lava.

(1 of 2) The Cat Suit helps a lot with the Bullies

The Cat Suit helps a lot with the Bullies (left), as well as making some challenges shorter than usual (right)

  • Green Star #21 - Use a Ground Pound on the ?-Blocks to make a bridge to the next one, until you can reach the star. If you have the Cat Suit, climb up to the top left block at the start to save time.
  • Green Star #22 - Use Dash Panels to boost your speed and essentially run in a straight line, leaping as necessary.
  • Green Star #23 - Bounce from Piranha Creeper to Piranha Creeper to the top. A Cat Suit could help if you mess up.
  • Green Star #24 - Use the bomb to blow up the wall on the right, then touch the Switch Panels from right to left.
  • Green Star #25 - Grab one Piranha Plant and have it eat everything, then destroy that Piranha Plant.
  • Green Star #26 - Run along the wheel, as it turns, until you can grab the star.
  • Green Star #27 - Make a dash up the blocks since Bullet Bills will destroy your path. A Cat Suit can bail you out here too if you mess up.
  • Green Star #28 - This one is tricky. Leap over the spiked rollers from left to right as you cross to avoid falling on the Donut Block bridge.
  • Green Star #29 - Give Boom Boom a single hit right at the start and wait for the Green Star since you must wait through the death animation.
  • Green Star #30 - Sprint through the area, it’s a straight shot. Grab the Stamp along the way.
