Super Mario Galaxy 2 Walkthrough Part 16: World Two Prankster Comet Stars
Puzzle Plank Galaxy
Purple Coin Shadow Vault
You will notice that these are all from the area where the green pipe was, right by the Luma that had the Hidden Star.
This is simply about getting all the purple coins here in under a minute. I found that this one isn't too difficult if you pick up the coins in batches of four at once. You can run through them and possibly get them all at once, but it is easy to skip.
Of course, the game had to make it hard, and you will have a lot of Cosmic Clones come after you. The key is to start in one corner, and work your way around, making certain that you do not double back in any way. So you can start in the left corner, work your way up, move to the right on tile, work your way down, and so on. Just get the coins, and the Star will appear. You will be able to collect so many Star Bits after that too.
Hightail Falls Galaxy
Hightail Falls Speed Run
Okay, this is all about the speed here, as you only have three minutes. You will need to run to the bridge and get on Yoshi. Watch out for the meteors.
You then need to ignore the kissing thing, get the coins, and then get the Dash Pepper. Run and run until you get to the Star Launcher.
You will then be taken to the place where you need to get up here, and fast. Remember that going to the right will get you to the Star Launcher.
You will then be at the place where you must quickly go across areas before they fall in. Speed is the key here too.
From here, it is about getting across the slides and avoiding meteorites. Eventually, you will get to the area with the spindles, and it is then all about just using the Dash Pepper to get to the star. Hopefully, you will have about a minute left, which is good for three or four good tries.
Boulder Bowl Galaxy
Rolling Crabber Romp
Okay, this Galaxy is somewhat simple. All you need to do is take the Star Launcher to the other planet and kill all 30 crabs there.
Of course, you only have sixty seconds to do it, and, by the time you get there, five seconds have already passed.
All you need to do is use the Rock Mushroom, and it should be very easy to clear all those nasty crabs out of the way. They tend to group up, too. The harder ones are going to be the ones at the end, as it will be harder to target them.
Just get all 30, and you will be given the star. It might take a few tries, but nothing more than you are used to.
Bowser's Lava Layer
Lava Lair Speed Run
Okay, this is just like last time, but way faster. You only have 30 seconds from when you begin, but you must add on time by going through the obstacles.
You need to get the first Timer as you go to face the wizard. Beat him, and use the pull star to get to the other side. Quickly go across the lava crates and get that timer there, and then quickly ground pound that until you are on the other side.
You will notice that the area here has lava with crates floating across them. You could leap across with a long jump to get to a crate, but it might be better to get hit in the lava just for sheer speed. Go on and burst through the crystal on that Star Launcher, and go to a new place.
Pick up the timer on the way to the spinning mean tiles floating in lava. You should probably go to the area to the right of the second tile and get that other timer. Jump to the next tile, and then take out the hammer brother. The Mini-Launcher he makes will take you up, and you will automatically snag the green timer in the process.
Now, you see that spinning thing admist the flame? On the hub of it is a timer that you will want to grab, believe me. Then go and ground pound that one thing, and you will be at another level.
Jump from tile to tile, and grab the timer at the end. Get past the Whomp, and then make certain you go to the left to get the timer here too. Every little bit helps.
Get past the second Whomp, then grab the timer there. You will then be at that point where those chomer things eat away the floor. I try and take this a little slower, as one false step could kill you! There are two timers here, and one is floating on a tiny island in the midst of the chompers. Make sure you get both, and keep going.
You will then have to travel on a pink bridge, which will give you access to the next timer. Go ahead and get it, and take out that pesky wizard while you're at it. By the time to get to the next pink bridge, you will need to leap over the energy things here, and grab the last timer. Very quickly make your way to the Star. You should get it with some seconds to spare.
