Star Coins: World 1-Tower
This is our Star Coin guide for World 1-Tower in New Super Mario Brothers Wii and also tells you the perfect strategy for defeating Larry Koopa. Coming into this world with a Propeller Suit from 1-1 or the Red Mushroom House is going to make it a LOT easier.
Star Coin #1 - As you work your way up the level Mario will come to the first area where large stone move in and out of the side of the level. Once above this Mario will reach the second platform that is swinging on chains. Ride the platform to the left side of the screen and jump into the area with the Star Coin. If you miss it can go back down the right side and try again.
Star Coin #2 - The very next section will have 3 moving platforms. You need to jump off to the right where the Skeleton Koopa is. Then wall jump or propeller yourself into a hidden area in the ceiling. This contains the second Star Coin. If you miss this there is no way back down and you'll have to do the level again.
Star Coin #3 - Right after the Midway Flag you'll have a random powerup box. Above this is yet another swinging platform. This time we need to go to the right again and either Propeller up or wall jump up to a second swinging platform. The Star Coin is in here.
Boss: Larry Koopa - There is a powerup to the left of the enterance if you need it. Larry Koopa is going to do a basic straight line magic attack followed by a high leap. You just need to land on his head. Once you do he will go into shell mode and bounce back and forth on the floor 3 times. Then it's back to his same attack pattern. Hit him 3 times to defeat him.
