- SHY GUYS VS. POW
Once entering the pyramid, go down the vase on the left and come back with the POW Block. Drop down the right side. When you land, you'll see tons of Shy Guys. Use the POW Block to get a lot of points.
- DEFEATING TRYCLYDE
The three-headed snake basically spits a non-stop barrage of fireballs. However, these fireballs cannot travel through Mushroom Blocks. In that case, stack up a barrier of blocks. Then, super jump over them and chuck the left over blocks at Tryclyde. You may need to use some from your barrier if you run out. Hit him 3 times and he's out of commission.
These stages are A LOT harder than the previous ones. Get ready for a quick change in difficulty, and a lot of bomb throwing and Beezo-dodging.
There aren't really any caves yet, but there are later. This stage actually takes place a lot in the air.
- WARP TO WORLD 5
Want to skip World 3 all together? Go into the secret cave (by jumping down the waterfall) and create a door beside the vase. Hop in the vase while in Subspace to warp straight to 5-1!
- SHORTCUT TO BIRDO AND FIFTH ACE COIN
Once climbing the vine, you can take a shortcut to Birdo (and collect the last Ace Coin) by using Luigi or Peach to make a running jump left. You'll reach a door. Inside, blow up the wall. Get the Ace Coin, then jump atop the two blocks on the left wall. Super jump up-left and run over the hill to get to Birdo.
This one has a lot of underground, bomb action. The start is difficult, due to annoying Beezos, but just keep running!
There is a lot of bomb usage in the underground area. You'll come to a part where the way out is the bottom level. There are four walls to destroy. Start by using two bombs from the top level to dispose of the first two walls, then use the two bombs from the bottom level to finish the final two. If you do it any other way, you may find it very difficult.
