Super Mario Galaxy 2 Walkthrough Part 12: World Four Hidden Stars
In Full Bloom
Do all you can to get to the planetoid that we discussed earlier in World Four Stars.
Click the link above if you want a more advanced walkthrough, but here is a little review. Go to the giant spinning coin and wall jump to the big pipes. Jump past the plant and get to the rising and falling pipe. Long jump across the chasm, and then go past the Whomps. You will then need to backward somersault to the Star Launcher.
Then you will get to the point with the turtles, and grab the spin drill. Start drilling on one side and hit a turtle on the other. When all three are killed, a Star Launcher will open. Take the Launcher to the next area, and then jump to the yellow platforms until you get to the Star Launcher.
This one Star Launcher will pause at another Star Launcher, don't use that Star Launcher. What you need to do is let yourself fall to the planetoid. You will then have to run on the whole planetoid until flowers start to grow. Keep running around until the whole place is covered with flowers. You will then have a vine sprout up, and you can take it until you reach the Star.
The Chimp's Score Challenge
This one isn't necessarily a hidden star per se, but it is another one of those that you have to receive a special message in order to attempt. It may come rather late
Okay, this game gives you two minutes to do some damange on all the enemies here.
You should probably go off to the left and bounce on the enemies in a row, if you can. You might actually waste time if you go back for the coins. You'll also waste time if you get hit, but I really shouldn't have to tell you to avoid that.
You should be able to go to the left area and get that guy in the middle, and all the coins around him.
I usually take the mini-Launcher and get to the dandelion thing, and then make sure I get all four of those guys. If you think you are fast enough, then go in the corner to take out some guys and wall jump up to the next level.
You can then jump across the bubble launchers to defeat more guys. Use the mini Launcher and watch out for the guy near the trapeze. Get the coins there and take the trapeze.
Now, if you don't have much points, here is where you can really sizzle. Just go in the circle and hit them three times in a row. By the way, the ? coin in the middle is good for a lot of free points.
Hopefully, you should get 10,000, and the Chimp will give you the star as he promised.
If you don't think that you will make it by the end of the level, then you probably Go to Starship Mario and start it again. That, or just lose the life and start again.
