|I nearly super-cleared world 9 in like an hour... it was surprisingly not that hard. I almost got both coin stars on the same run, but died before getting to the last red coin. Once I figured out you can easily kill the bees by short-hop ground pounding, and learned the best methods/shortcuts to take to get to each section, it was a cinch. there's a red block here so I guess I probably can't get the last star until I find the wing cap switch.|
Then I went to world 11, the candy/toy land, and 100% completed it. This level is really good. it has a nice mixture of open-area BK style, with some verticality, and some tough platforming over bottomless bits. There was a penguin slide race here that is really easy to fall off of, but is also really short. there's a star that just floats up and down in front of a giant target and you gotta shoot to it with the cannon... There's a giant toy robot that you climb up on to get one of the red coins and a star... The one red coin I was stumped on for a while was the one inside the toy plane, but I managed to find it eventually.
Then I went to world 13, the lava cave world... I immediately went for a coin hunt because I couldn't immediately tell where any of the stars were... This level is alright. it has a bunch of lava rivers that join together into a lava lake... Some tough platforming over lava that is very forgiving... Lots of bullies and bats and scuttlebugs... Some of the bullies make it really annoying to get to certain platforms.. There's a shell riding section that I gave up on for now, and still a few other stars I have yet to find.
Then I went to try out the 3rd Bowser level... it's really fun! The star path has some really tricky jumps you have to make by jumping while sliding down a slope to use that momentum to get across. I gave up at the Bowser path for now...
Other than the stuff I'm missing, all I have left is world 12 (the train level I think), world 14 (the factory level?), and the rest of world 15 (the space shuttle level)... I'm now at 89 stars.
