|I 100% finished up world 7, the desert world. that koopa race was really hard, I had to keep practicing until I could climb the big pyramid steps efficiently enough and even then you still have to be quick at the easy parts and long jump a lot.|
I got through most of world 10, the ice mountain world... but I couldn't figure out how to bring the baby penguin back to its mom. there's also another star that I have an idea where it is but I didn't bother trying yet. this level has a few bottomless pits between the main areas that you gotta long jump between.. finding the red coins here was a nice challenge.
Then I went and beat the 2nd bowser level. it's a retro SMW style castle.. there are ceiling climbing parts where you gotta avoid those electric orbs that have a really unpredictable pattern, and also lava and bullet bills.. usually you can cheese through it by lava hopping... in fact that was the ONLY way I ever managed to get passed the skull raft part.
The optional star path has another climbable ceiling with an electric orb, and no ground or lava below. at first I thought you had to climb it and avoid the orb the whole way through to get to the star, but later found out you can just jump ontop of the ceiling. then there's a couple of really hard long jumps onto tiny platforms that have spikes on the side of them. spikes work like lava... oh and the boss glitched out on me.. the big bully just killed himself while bowser was talking and I automatically cleared the level after that.
Tried out all the 3rd tier levels. there's a toy level, a candy level, a lava cave level, a factory level, and a spaceship runway level... that runway level was the only one I made any progress in so far. I got the coin stars there pretty easily. I love the verticality in this level and the fact that there are no bottomless pits. it's another one of those BK style levels.
