The Goal Pole is right there and with 100 seconds to claim it, this level appears to be simple – that is until the Goal Pole starts running away from you. Chase after it to a Dash Panel in the corner, make the leap and sprint across the Donut Blocks for Green Star #1 . Turn the corner and leap the gap then over to a Dash Panel that should boost you enough to reach the Stamp island.

The first Star is out in the open (left). The Stamp is behind a Walleye (right).

Run past the Walleye then continue, leaping over Donut Block gaps. At the end of the last Donut Block chain is Green Star #2 , quickly grab it then dash past the Walleyes. Make another leap at the end to cut some time off, you could even end up in front of the Goal Pole at this point. Climb up the Donut Block steps and grab Green Star #3 before timing your fall on the Goal Pole.

At the end of the last Donut Block chain is a Star (left). Climb up the Donut Block steps and grab the Star (right).
