"Cosmic" ground pound

While doing a spin in midair, use a ground pound immedietly after spinning to produce what I call a "Cosmic" ground pound. It has a slight homing ability, so therefore, extreme targeting is no longer required. Hope this Helps kill all of those cosmic jerks.

2P Freeze

You know that with a Second player, you can shoot star bits (as well as pick them up) and control Mario's jumps with A. Also, if you hold A over an enemy, the enemy will be paralyzed and won't be able to move. This works with Goomba-type enemies, as well as other enemies. You can also freeze small Bullet Bills, boulders, and the green disappearing platforms.

999 Starbits in Space Junk 2: Kamella's Airship Attack

Just find as many starbits as you could then on the airship that has the koopas for the bridge to go down, Go to the right of the airship and pound on the cage thing. LOTS OF S-BITS!
Keep repeating until you max out at 999. Then beat the boss, get the star. And look at that! JACKPOT! If you keep doing this kind of thing over 30 times, hopefully at the observatory you will max out at 9999 already.

Amazingly Easy Star Bits

Go to the Sling Pod Galaxy and there's that spot with all the flying bombs, pull stars and star bits? You know that place? Good. Anyway, there's a whole lot of star bits where there's a floating bomb army, so use the pull stars to get through. Then, once you're in the next sticky web wad, use your cursor to collect lots of star bits. I only completed this Galaxy once, because it's really hard you need good aim. Anyway, fifty star bits give you life, and so if you keep running your cursor over the star bits, you get lots real easy. There's a 1-up farther up there, too.

Beware of Bouldergeist

A lot of people have trouble with him, so here's some of his pros. and cons.

Pros: He can rebuild himself, he can make big rock hands to crush you, he can control rocks.
Cons: It's very easy to tell what his attack is, three hits brings him to his true form, he fires what can lead to his defeat, his attacks are easily dodged.

In his first form, he has two attacks. One is to make a line of sharp rocks appear. You can see that it's coming when shadows form on the ground. When they're up, star spin to break them. His second attack, the key to beating him, is to throw rocks. He has three different types of rocks. Gray rocks, which do nothing but hit the ground if you move out of the way, gold rocks, which gives coins (aka health) when they don't hit you, and black rocks, the most important, which brings a bomb boo onto the field. Star spin near it and make it hit Bouldergeist. Three times and he'll show his true form. And keep in mind that when any of the rocks hit you, you get hurt. In his true form, he'll run away from you and drop bomb boos in his path. Grab one and hit him, and he'll be in his rock form again, only now with two large hands. Two hits breaks the rock hands, much like himself. He has two new attacks, and he'll add an extra line of rocks. One new attack is that he'll punch you with one hand. He won't turn around while punching, so it's easily dodged. Another thing is that he'll raise his rock hands and bring them down to crush you. Just stay out of the shadow and you'll do fine. Rinse and repeat and get that star.

Cosmic Race Hint

When you are in the Honey Hive Galaxy, when you have to race the Cosmic mirror of yourself, you can try this. I never could get the boost to work for me, so for people with a little slower timing such as myself, take the higher path. You can jump over to the second back flip site, and be ahead of your cosmic counter-part. It worked several times for me.

Dreadnought Galaxy Secret Star Help:

Mostly considered the hardest star in the game, the garbage challenge takes no prisoners.

When you arrive on the planet, go to the bottom of the platform and go into the green pipe. Talk to the robot and accept his challenge.

You have 30 seconds on the clock to blow up all the garbage with bomb ombs.
However, they take around 7 seconds to explode.

You can go to the dispensers and walk into the bomb to pick it up. Shake the wii remote to throw it. (Throw it whilst jumping for better distance)

The way to do it though, is to:

1) Throw each bom-omb onto the yellow dots.
2) Put the bombs in order so the explosions can chain into eachother.
3) Go from left to right.

Good Luck, If You Complete This You Will Have Completed The Biggest Challenge!

Easy Star Bits

Make sure you have a bit of patience, and quite a few lives, not that this is too hard. First off, pick Mario or Luigi. now, go to either:

Gusty Garden Galaxy:
Go to the third star, and go below the island you first end up on. kill the two crawling underground enemies, and once they both died, make sure you get 20 star bits from each of them, totaling 40 star bits. now, go back above and smash the crystal containing a few S-bits. take one of the floating pink weed thingies, and MAKE SURE YOU GET ALL OF THE ? COINS IN THIS LEVEL!!! once you've progressed through the level by collecting all of the ? coins, killing all enemies that pop up along the way, and collecting all the star bits, make your way over to the vine that takes you to the launch star. OMG! you may have noticed that a rainbow star is in its path. once you collect it, make your way to the large rolling boulders and destroy them. Once you have destroyed a few of them, and collecting all the S-bits they dropped, destroy the remaining BROWN boulders by smashing the red jewel on it, with a spin attack. ignore the golden one. Make your way through the rest of the level, and collect all remaining S-bits, gaining almost 300 S-bits every trip!

Hurry Scurry Galaxy:
This one is a lot simpler, and faster. Go to the galaxy, and once there, DO NOT move Mario/Luigi, or the camera. instead, use your star cursor on the Wii remote to collect all of the S-bits that are along the path. once they are all collected (17 every time), either jump/longjump across the gaps, or run the whole path, to the 1-UP Mushroom. once collected, kill yourself. Repeat, until you cannot go past 999 S-bits. DO NOT exit the level., as you will not acquire the S-bits you collected. instead, complete the level by collecting the Power Star at the end.

Hope this helps all the people trying to gain 9999 S-bits, and happy S-bit hunting!

Easy Star Bits

Need more star bits to feed Hungry Lumas? Go to the Sling Pod Galaxy (it is a Hungry Luma galaxy which requires 400 star bits to unlock), and you can get a massive amount of Star Bits by grabbing them all and then dying (the star bits come back!). But you should be okay since 50 star bits= 1 extra life.

Do until you have gotten as many Star Bits as you need!

Finding Luigi

Luigi will sometimes get lost in a galaxy. Toad will give you pictures of where he is.

The first picture is in the Good Egg Galaxy. He is at the top of the Mushroom house. To get there you must go to the otherside of the first planet, and go in the pipe. You must find a second yellow pipe in the house which will transport you to the Lop of the Mushroom house. Luigi will then give you a star!

The second picture is in the Battlerock galaxy. He is by the first star, but underneath a platform. You must manouver a bullet bill to break the cage open, giving you a GREEN star!

Green Stars

In the game, there are three green stars that are found in addition to the regular ones. Once you have all three, a green launch star will appear near the garage (it will not appear until you have all three). It launches you to a small planet, where three minigame galaxies can be accessed (These are harder than normal). The locations of the green stars are:

Dusty Dune Galaxy - Episode 2 - Feed a hungry Luma under the planet you blast to after defeating the red Pokey.
Buoy Base Galaxy - Episode 1 - Have a torpedo follow you into a caged warp pipe near the edge of the tank while underwater.
Battlerock Galaxy - After you save Luigi, he will eventually go here (the Mailtoad in the front of the ship near Princess Rosalina will notify you) and he will be trapped. Follow the course until the end, and get a Bullet Bill to follow you to a caged Luigi under the nearby platform.

tips on luiges purple coins at the toy time

I was always stuck here, so here is some help.


First get all the coins on the green blocks. Then go straight until there`s five purple coins one space away from the block. Get them. then keep going near luiges head until you found five more purple coins one space away from the block. Get them. Now go right until you find a yellow place. Get the coins there and proceed down to Mario`s right foot but, DON`T GO ON IT!!! Just go to the place where you have to long jump to get the other purple coins. Get them and you should have 100. If not, try this....

Go to a hole anywhere on luige and get the coins above it with the long jump.
