World Castle

World Castle-5: Trick Trap Tower

There are two very tall towers that you’ll be climbing in this level. Climb up the steps at the beginning and ride the lift up and around to a Super Bell in the ? Block . Ride this next lift up then jump off around the left side so you can move around this platform to Green Star #1 . With the Cat Suit, climb up from here to a Cloud Platform where the Stamp is located.

Jump off around the left side to find a Star (left). With the Cat Suit, climb up from here to the Stamp (right).

Continue to climb up to the top of the tower and you’ll encounter three Magikoopa. Defeat them to reveal Green Star #2 then ride the gondola to the Checkpoint Flag and the second tower.

Defeat the three Magikoopas for a Star.

You need to get all 5 Key Coins to unlock the Warp Box and you’ll want to get them in order. Start climbing past the first enemy, using the Jump Panel to grab Key Coin #1 . Continue around the corner defeating more enemies to find Key Coin #2 and then Key Coin #3 up the Jump Panel. Climb the ramp here and break the blocks at the lower part of the wall. Slide under them to the right to find Green Star #3 then climb up to Key Coin #4 . Use the last Jump Panel to reach the top then loop around Key Coin #5 grabbing as you run back down the tower.

The final Star is in a hidden area beneath some blocks as you head up the tower (left). Once you have grabbed all of the key coins (right) race back down the tower.

You’re doing this because Fuzzies will start to rush from the top down to crush you and this gets you a head start. Slide down the ramps when possible and reach the Warp Box quickly where you’ll be able to find the Goal Pole.
