How do you beat Super Mario 64 ds?

Course 1:Bob-omb Battlefield

Star 1:Big Bob-omb on the Summit

This Star is pretty easy seeing as how it's the first in the game. Simply

follow the marked path to the mountain. There are arrows pointing the way

so you shouldn't get lost. Start going around and around the mountain,

avoiding the cannonballs along the way. Once you reach a hole in the wall,

jump into it to use a warp to get near the top of the mountain. Walk to

the top and face King Bob-omb. As Yoshi, you need go eat the Bob-ombs he

throws then spit them into him again. King Bob-omb will bounce around

the summit for a few seconds before he keeps attacking you. Repeat this

process twice more to claim the Star.

Star 2:Footrace with Koopa the Quick

Another simple Star. First off, Koopa the Quick is standing near the start

of the level. Talk to him to start a race to the top of the mountain.

However, you must be Mario to start the race. Find the Mario Cap in the

level or just start as Mario and then begin the race. Follow the same

path as the previous Star to reach the top of the mountain. If you beat

Koopa the Quick then you win a Star. Koopa the Quick gets to the top in

about 1:30:00. Try to beat that.

Star 3:5 Silver Stars!

There are 5 Silver Stars wondering about the level. You need to get them

all. One is above the tree near the beginning of the world, another is

held by a Goomba near where the Red Coin Star appears, another is being

held by another Goomba half-way up the mountain. The 4th is on Chain

Chomp's chain and he is merrily running around the level so its a pain to

catch him. The last Star is in the middle of a ring of flowers near the

center of the level. Once you have all 5 Silver Stars the real Star will

appear right near where you began the world.

Star 4:King Bob-omb's Revenge

You need to head right back to the top of the mountain again to face King

Bob-omb once more. You can't be Yoshi for this task, however anyone else

will do just fine. The battle is a bit different this time around. You

need to pick up King Bob-omb from behind and throw him anywhere except

off the mountain. Do this three times (What an easy battle) and another

Power Star will be yours.

Star 5:Mario Wings to the Sky

You need to have activated the ? Red Switch in order to complete this

level. Make your way to the island in the sky as Mario. Once there, grab

the Wing Cap from the ? Red Block and hop inside the cannon. There are 5

Coin Rings going higher and higher near the cannon. There is a Secret in

the middle of each. Aim for the middle coin in the first ring and fire

away. If you did it properly you will have gotten all 5 Secrets and a

Star will appear on the ground. If you didn't, fly back to the island and

try again and again until you succeed.

Star 6:Find the 8 Red Coins

As the title of the Star says, you're out to find all 8 Red Coins to get

a Star. Here are their locations:

Red Coin 1:Head forwards from start until you reach some rotating

platforms. The Coin is atop of them.

Red Coin 2:In the field with many Goombas there is an odd shaped rock.

The Red Coin is ontop of it.

Red Coin 3:It is above the post Chain Chomp is chained to.

Red Coin 4:Head across the tilting bridge and take a left to find some

poles. The Red Coin is near these poles.

Red Coin 5:There is another Red Coin near #4.

Red Coin 6:In the big field with flowers, near the giant gatepost is a

little path leading under it to your next Coin.

Red Coin 7:Just past the gatepost is a steep hill. Halfway up the hill

you will find the next Red Coin.

Red Coin 8:The tree on the floating island has a Red Coin floating just

above it.

Nabbing all 8 Red Coins will make the Star appear near where you got Red

Coins 4 and 5.

Star 7:Behind Chain Chomp's Gate

Head right on over to Chain Chomp's area. You see the post he is attached

to? You need to Ground Pound it 3 times to release Chain Chomp. Do it

quickly before you get hurt. Releasing Chompy will make him destroy the

nearby gate that was once guarding the Star.

100 Coins Star

Grabbing 100 Coins isn't too challenging. There are many wooden posts in

the world and running around it several times spits out 5 Coins. The Red

Coins are also valuable so collect those too to boost your total. There's

also 45 Coins in the sky if you need them. Don't get the Star in the sky,

otherwise its a pain nabbing it!

~Course 2:Whomp's Fortress~

-----------------------------

Star 1:Chip off Whomp's Block

-----------------------------

Follow the path to the top of the Fortress. Be sure not to fall off into

the empty void! At the very top you will have to face King Whomp. Make

him fall over then quickly Ground Pound his back. Do this three times

and he will reveal your Power Star.

Star 2:To the Top of the Fortress

Simply said in the title. Just head to the top of Whomp's Fortress. The

top has a new tower so you will need to climb that around to reach the

Power Star at the top. Some of the platforms around the tower are

retracting into the wall and jutting out time to time, so be sure to

make your jumps carefully.

Star 3:Shoot into the Wild Blue

Head into the shallow water and follow it across to reach a Bob-omb

Buddy. Talk to it and he will open up the cannon for you. Hop inside and

aim at the multi-platform level straight ahead of you. Aim for one of the

back pillars and blast away. If you hit it correctly, you will land on

the platform where you can slide down a pole and claim the Star. If you

missed, you're probably dead.

Star 4:Red Coins on the Floating Isle

Once again, you're up to the task of collecting another set of 8 Red

Coins. Here they all are:

Red Coin 1:Head along the path until you reach those three things that

come in and out of the wall. The Red Coin is above them.

Red Coin 2:Its above the second Thwomp on the stairs. Get on top of him

to hitch a ride up to it.

Red Coin 3:After the stairway you will come to a Pirhana Plant. The Red

Coin is located right behind him.

Red Coin 4:Right near the collapsing bridge there is a thin ledge with a

Red Coin in the middle of it.

Red Coin 5:Once you reach the spinning platform, stand on the end until

you pass through the Red Coin.

Red Coin 6:Punch the plank at the top of the fortress to create a bridge

to the floating islands, and a Red Coin.

Red Coin 7:On an adjacent island near Red Coin 6.

Red Coin 8:Near the group of three Pirhana Plants on the bottom level is

the final Red Coin.

Once you have all 8 Red Coins, the Power Star will appear near where you

begin the world.

Star 5:Fall onto the Caged Island

Climb to the top of the tree right next to where you start to make an

owl appear. Hang onto him as he flys into the air. Control him over to a

very, very tiny island high above the sky. Drop off of him correctly and

you will claim the Power Star inside easily. Miss and it isn't going to

look pretty down there. You can hang onto the owl for a long time, and

he will gradually get lower and lower, making the timing for the fall a

bit easier for you.

Star 6:Blast Away the Wall

Head into the cannon in the Fortress. Aim to the right and you will see

two corners of walls. Aim yourself at the one furthest from the cannon

and blast away. If you hit the corner, you will break it off revealing a

Power Star. Head up the Fortress until you reach this piece of wall then

simply walk into the Star.

Star 7:Switch Star of the Fortress

The Switch Star is on the lowest level of the Fortress so don't go

climbing around the place. Once you pass an area with several bricks,

break one of them to reveal the Switch. Press it to make a Star appear.

Hurry around the ground level of the Fortress and grab it.

100 Coins Star

This Star is insanely easy. There is a little over 200 Coins in Whomp's

Fortress and you only need half of them. Simple stuff. There's a Blue

Coin Switch near the cannon, all the red coins and some posts you can

destroy for more Coins. An easy Star indeed. Don't forget about the

floating islands. You can find some more coins lurking up there.

you enter the room it is in. This is best done with Yoshi who has six

rabbits outside of the castle. Once you collect the eight rabbit, he will

hand over the Key to the White Door, which you can enter and claim a

Castle Secret Star for.
