Super Mario Sunshine

I am stuck on the sixth level of Noki Bay. Whenever I try jumping on a moving block, it will be too far away.

Games Guru: I’m not exactly sure where you are in the level, but here are some ideas: If you’re near the old fisherman’s grandson, try looking for a rope coming out of the platform. That will help to take you across. You may also need to use your wall jumping and backwards high-jumping abilities.

    I need THREE more blue coins to win the entire game! THREE MORE BLUE COINS!

    First you have to un-chain chain-chomp. Then Grab a barrel of water and start hoppong with the water to the area of the spring (Towards the back of the ‘world’) As soon as chain-chomp is some what near you jump and throw the barrel at him. If you hit him he will turn a dark blue color and be safe to toutch. Grab the back of his chain and drag him into the spring. Remember, he will only be blue for 10 seconds or so, so once you hit him you have to get him into the spring fast! I hope this helps!

    to superdude: To get to Bowser you have to go inside Corona Mountain (the volcano). In order to get inside here you must complete stage 7 of all the worlds. Basicly you have to defeat al lof the shadow marios. Once inside the mountain you have to jump accross a line of fire and spike platforms and steer a mud boat (first introduced in Nokia Bay) throught the lava and use a rocket nozzle to jume up the clouds to Bowers tub. And no, there are no creepy pictures sneaking up on you at the last second but you have to fight Bowser and Bowser Jr. at the same time which makes it alot harder. Let me know if you have any more questions.

    Oh yha, when the shine sprite comes out the top it floats above the shine gate out of reach for jumes or the hover nozzle.

    I already beat the game and I have a faster meathod to use then koopatroopa27:

    From what I can remember you can clean the shine gate (and get on top of it for that matter) by doing a series of spins and backflips. However you can not get the shine sprite until you get the rocket nozzle. I can not quite remember how you do it but it only works from the back where the waterfalls are. But if you work on it you should be able to work it out. But you should enjoy this small amout of frustration while you can because it triples when you get to Bowser.

    Hey Gamego40 –

    To shoot the Shine Gate, do a lot of levels until you can get the Rocket Nozzle in Delfino Plaza. Climb Corona Mountain until you get to the small pond, then use the Rocket nozzle to launch up to the top of the Shine Gate.

    Now, I haven’t played this game for a while, so this next part might not work, just so you know:

    Go into the Warp Pipe on top of the gate and do a level. Beat the level, and when you come back out the pipe, you should have the Hover Nozzle again. Jump off the Shine Gate, and activate the Hover Nozzle when you are directly in front of the giant Shine Sprite. Use the nozzle to turn around and land on the shelf directly underneath the hanging Shine Sprite. From there, you should have a clear shot. A regular Shine Sprite should pop out of the giant one when you are finished cleaning, but I don’t remember where it lands. And as always…

    Play On.

    keep working on it.

    I found it much easier to win this level if you use the move spinning top (thats what I call the move) all you have to do is start running in circles and then press the R button you will spin like a top and water will go everywhere

    I hope this helps

    Here’s how to get to rooms in the Delfino Hotel: Just go into the left bathroom in the lobby and jump up where there’s a leak. You will then be in someone’s room.

    I can NOT beat the Hotel level where you have to spray every bit of goop with water in less than four or three minutes! any suggestions?

  16. To beat Peaty the pirana plant strikes back is when he is flying use the camera and shoot him with water.
