Super Mario Galaxy 2 Walkthrough Part 15: World One Prankster Comet Stars
Sky Station Galaxy
Peewee Piranha's Speed Run
Okay, this is one of those times, where you have to do this level again, but fast, fast, fast. You have only thirty seconds, and time gets extended by grabbing the clock along the way. For example, go through the green pipe and grab the timer above it.
When you get to the other side, grab the timer on the way to the big crystal, and shatter it. Then you should jump through the hole and get to the Star Launcher.
You will be in that area with the giant rolling cars that want to crush you. Go on and either dodge or do the backwards somersault to get over the first one, but get that extra timer. You definitely want to backwards somersault on that second one, as there are two timers that you can get a hold of here. Go ahead and get them, and then take the Star Launcher.
This last part is about hitting this Pee-Wee Piranha creature in the backside. Three times, and then hitting him again. There are about four timers that you can take to do this. It really isn't that difficult.
Yoshi Star Galaxy
Spiny Rainbow Romp
Okay, this is one of those timed trials that I found most difficult. The trick is to take out all 30 the spiny creatures in the 60 seconds allotted. That is once every two seconds, you have to work quickly.
The first rule is take out the four right at the beginning. You can then go to right side and take out more, and take out more on the way back. Then you should head to the center of the area and get a rainbow star, and then head to the area in the water, and get the only other rainbow star along the way. Take out all the rest before the time runs out. You will note how the rainbow stars increase your speed, but the mud must be jumped over as it will slow you down.
Yes, there are other ways of doing this. Just study where the spiky things are and get them.
And yes, this is one of these levels that you have to keep doing until you get it right. If you find that the time is about to run out, and there are way too many Spiny creatures left, you can simply return to the Starship Mario and start again. That, or lose a life and start again.
Diggaleg's Daredevil Run
Okay, I guess I should say "don't get killed here", but that is pretty obvious. The worst way you can get hit is when he fires those drill things. You can try and meet the drills halfway, or jump on them while spinning the drill and destroy them that way. If they touch you, you are dead, so just keep on doing this.
Eventually, you will hit him three times and get the star.
Purple Coin Flip 'n' Sprint
This one I found difficult, but not impossible. You have about Three Minutes to get 100 purple coins.
The key is to minimize movements. For example, the first few can be done without "flipping" at all. You have to flip when it comes to getting the two on the end, and then go around the circle to get 15 for now. You will find a 1UP here, and you should get it. After all, you will probably fail in this level. Just keeping it real.
You will then have to do another flip, and then jump through an electric area. This one can be done with a normal jump, but time it if you are going to spin. Sometimes, I've been known to spin, and then that flipped things up, believe me. You will cross another electric fence, and then an area with many electric fences. You will need to take this area fast, and you should have 31 by the time you are done. I highly suggest getting the two coins on the tile by the stair, and then backwards somersaulting up the step.
Go into the ring and get 39 total. This next part involves beating a Chomp. I found that the first one was easy, as a simple flip can knock it out entirely. Go ahead and get the circle for 52 coins.
It gets harder in the next area when others get involved. You may need to keep flipping back and forth to get what you need. You will then be at 79 when you are done.
Then it is all about getting them in the electric comes by. Be sure not to do any spinning if you are just trying to jump over the electircal bolt as it comes across. Made that mistake way too many times.
On the last few tiles, I wouldn't even flip them, just jump normally between them.
You should get the last purple coin on that area, and it is yours.
You might find that it is very easy to run out of time, especially in the area with the rolling Chomps. If you find that you are not going to make it, then you will have to Return to Starship Mario, and then try it again. That, or lose the life and begin again. Yeah, there are no checkpoint flags here.
Bowser Jr.'s Fiery Flotilla
Fiery Flotilla Speed Run
Okay, this is like one of three times that you are going to have to defeat Gobblegut, again. At least you will start the level with this, but you will only have two minutes.
I am going to give you my same advice. Hit him in the three back areas first three times, and then go for the front. The real time waster is just to make him attack, so you need to hit him hard, and fast. When the three soft spots in the back are taken out, then go for the front on his next attack.
