Star Coins: World 1-Castle

This is our Star Coin guide for World 1-Castle in New Super Mario Brothers Wii and tells you our strategy for defeating Larry Koopa.

Star Coin #1 - Work your way through the spinning gears until you see the first Star Coin. Use the tall spokes on the gear to launch yourself into the first Star Coin.

Star Coin #2 - Just past the Midway Flag you will see the second Star Coin covered in blocks. You need to let the spiked block fall from the ceiling to break apart the blocks. Then let him rise before jumping in and getting the Star Coin. You have plenty of time to make it out right away but you are so safe from the falling block if you're worried about your timing.

1UP - Right after Star Coin #2 there are 2 large blocks flanking a stone structure with 15 coins inside. Jump to the top of this structure and the 1UP is hidden in the middle on the 2 coins.

Star Coin #3 - You are going to travel through some more spinning gears until you get to a large gear the size of the entire screen. There will be a green pipe in the bottom right of the screen. You need to ride the gear down below the red platform and then jump onto the pipe before getting killed by the lava. In this secret room hit the P-switch and then run across the new bricks to wall jump up to the Star Coin. Don't push your luck if you miss the jump the first time as the P-button will reappear to give you another chance.

Boss: Larry Koopa - There is a hidden powerup between the 2 standard bricks right before the door to Larry. Larry will fight you the same way. Throwing magic directly at you and jumping high. The change is that the floor is going to rise and lower in sections. I find this actually makes it easier on you as when Larry is in shell form he gets trapped in the low sections making it easy for you to be ready to pounce as soon as he is back in Larry form. 3 hits is the magic number to end this battle and finish World 1.

I had difficulty making the wall jump, so I went back to get a Helicopter in World One. After getting the coin, I got the power-up fireball and defeated Larry. Could not have done this without your help!!
