World 02

World 2-Castle: Bowsers Bullet Bill Brigade

This level slides along with or without you so keep pace! Climb atop the first vehicle and hit the blocks for a Fire Flower . Defeat the Blocksteppers and cross over to the third vehicle where the blocks reveal a Cannon Box that you need to keep for the rest of the level if possible. Hit the Red Ring and if you get all the coins you’ll receiver another Fire Flower . Ahead is another chance to get a Cannon Box by breaking the Bullet Bill Cannon. After the first wave of tanks you’ll get a chance to defeat some Piranha Plants that guard Green Star #1 – note that you can shoot the star. Climb up the next tank and break the crate ahead for Green Star #2 .

Destroy the Piranha Plants for the first Star (left). Break the crate on the next tank for another Star (right).

More Blocksteppers are in this area but if you charge up your shot you can take them all out at once. The crates on the next long stretch tank block off the Stamp but it’s easy enough to collect. Continue along to the final tank and shoot the back wall to reveal Green Star #3 – this star is only collected by breaking the wall with a Cannon Box so you must make it this far with one. Jump into the pipe for the boss fight.

Hop up and grab the Stamp (left). Destroy the wall behind the Warp Pipe for the final Star (right).

Boss: Boom Boom

Boom Boom spins around the room violently but it’s simple enough to jump on his head. Doing this causes him to slip into his turtle shell and bounce around the room. Dodge this attack then jump on him again, but this time he retreats to an invisible turtle shell. Follow the thin outline to dodge then jump on Boom Boom one final time.

Avoid the boss when he spins and jump on his head when he stops to damage him.

Claim the Green +Clock and cap the Goal Pole to free the Sprixie Princess and reach World 3.
