Completed the Moon Kingdom
Screenshots dump part 16:
The Darker Side level is just a big gauntlet of different platforming challenges with no checkpoints. In the middle, there's a sphinx you gives you an extra heart and a bunch of money for answering his questions correctly. I only died a couple times, once at the fork flinging part (cuz I shook the controller by accident), and once at that crazy laser ring part. The rest of was mostly easy.
That ending was really great... some really sad music starts playing as you climb up the giant moon building, and Cappy talks to you about how fun this journey has been...
Now I'm just trying to find all the art moons, and using the Toad hints to find the 1-2 other moons that I'm missing in some levels.
wtf I'm completely stumped by this art showing the town part of Luncheon Kingdom. It just shows to pictures that have no differences...
actually, it does have a difference. I had to look up a guide before I noticed it... wow how did I miss that?
most of these art hints aren't very hard, just a matter of recognizing the level and then searching around... the one in Lost Kingdom had me a bit stumped for a while, just because it's such a generic close-up of the ground.
Most of the moons I was missing in Sand Kingdom, were just stuff that I never checked again because I assumed I had fully completed those areas.
This is weird... the bird and Toad aren't giving the hint for moon #68 in Sand Kingdom... I have no choice but to check a guide for this one. Oh... I see, it's because one of them is from the guy who is touring around to all the kingdoms in a taxi. I last saw him at the moon, and then he said he was going to the Mushroom Kingdom... I haven't been back there yet because I'm saving the Mushroom Kingdom cleanup for last, so I can end the game with seeing Peach at her castle.
Also I had to look in a guide for the last couple Dark Side art moons. One of them, I didn't even find the picture itself. I suppose I should've counted the pictures and made sure I found them all.
Also I needed a guide to find the art moon showing the different moon phases... I never noticed that the Cloud Kingdom boss battle arena had moon phase designs on its floor.
A lot of these moons that I was stuck on previously, I figured out on my own very quickly the next time I went to try and find them. I found the rest of the Mushroom Kingdom moons, and talked to Peach one last time (she is finally back in her normal pink dress now)... and I confirmed that I can get all the Toadette moons now... but damn I'm still missing 3 purple coins in Mushroom Kingdom somewhere. I looked around for a bit... I'm definitely not giving up on this. now I'm only stuck on these last 3...
I'm definitely going to find these last 3 purple coins on my own eventually. I didn't need to use a guide to find any of them so far. I've managed to find ALL the purple coins in every other kingdom without a guide... Now I just have these last 3 in Mushroom Kingdom left to find... Mostly it's just a matter of going through every section of the level again and being more thorough with the camera... Then there's just talking to Toadette a bunch of times, and grinding coins to get to 999 moons.
