|I just spent like 5 hours on this game today... After going to get the Got all the remaining stars that I could find. Now at 118..|
Cloudrail Station was kinda fun... although it has even more bees than Music Land, it's a lot easier to explore than that level... In the middle is a train on some big train tracks you can walk on... and there's some kinda big floating platforms with enemies and coins hidden in cloud dust... and there's also giant floating flowers and thwomps that act as elevators... The 100 coin star was stupidly easy... The red coin star was a bit tricky though.. the rest was a bit tough but went really well.
Finished the Lava Cave level... I managed to get into that shell surfing tunnel after a few more tries, and on my first attempt of getting through there, luckily I managed to get to the star... there was a really insane metal cap part where you had to lava-hop up a tower with a lava waterfall inside it...
Then I did all I could in Bob-omb Factory... this is the hardest level in the game easily... It's ridiculously easy to fall off due to an enemy/boulder ambush or just sloppy playing.. and the 100-coin and red coin star here is fucking nuts... This one part you have to hop across an insta-death acid pool using only tiny lopsided drums as platforms, and the drums sink when you're standing on them.. I kept having to double-jump in place while carefully turning mario and the camera around so I could get set up for the next jump...
The last star in bob-omb factory... "Engine leak" or something.. I have no idea how to get.. There's a sign that says there's a hidden entrance into this level from Gloomy Garden, but gives absolutely no other clues besides that... Also when I selected this star, there were some extra flamethrower obstacles that weren't there before.. but that might just be because all the previous stars I got on this level were when I selected the first star, and I kept getting other stars besides the first one.. so that flamethrower stuff probably means nothing and was supposed to be there on the other stars I got.
Then finally... The spaceship runway level... there were some really weird stars in the basement section of this level with just some simple platforming rooms over insta-death pits.. I had an unusually high amount of trouble on the first star, the "follow the glittery path" one.. the rest weren't too much trouble though.
Then I went and beat Bowser, and got his star... the star at the end of the bowser fight warped me back to the hub, except now it's nighttime out, there's Galaxy music, and Princess Peach is there where Yoshi used to be at the beginning of the game. Also a bunch of Toads are standing around the hub and have different things to say... one of them gives me a hint about the last secret star that I'm missing... "the pipe to the top of the star tower lookout is hidden somewhere very windy."
You can't go into any levels during this part of the game.. the only thing you can do is grab the 2nd last secret star which is at the area where the 3rd level pipe used to be... and that warps you out and back to the normal version of the hub...
I know that when you get 120 stars, you have to go back to that postgame hub area and look up at the stars from that star island to get to the extra levels... but now I'm stuck at 118 stars and have no idea where to find the last 2.
