Super Mario Galaxy 2

Where is the Comet Medal for Wild Glide galaxy? I have looked all over and can’t find it.

Games Guru: Get the Comet Medal by flying through the five red gates. Also, get the power star by going through the Sun Gate.

I’m stuck on the first Bowser’s Castle and could use some tips on how to beat the dragon.

Games Guru: I assume you mean Bowser, who gets really big near the end of the level.

Jump over the shockwaves that Bowser throws. You’ll see that Bowser likes to hit the planet to cause havoc and shake things up. Worse are the meteorites he sends at you. Ground pound when Bowser throws those meteorites. This will launch them back at him. But wait: He’s got another weapon! Watch out for the flame breath, which you have to avoid until the fire goes out on the planet’s surface. Hit him twice more with ground pounds, and he’s done for.

How do you get past 109 stars? I’m stuck and can’t get comets for more stars. Help!

Games Guru: I think you have to get all the comet stars. I think you can also talk to the Purple Luma for help. There’s a hungry Luma outside the terrace area. Give him 20 star bits for a comet to appear.

What is the second part of the Grand Star circle?

Games Guru: I’m not sure what you mean about the second part. Grand Stars give Starship Mario power and reveal Portals going to other worlds. When Bowser swallows one in the final battle, he gets really, really big.

Are there any codes on High Falls Planet on World 3 and the Boo Mansion Planet?

Games Guru: I’m sad to say I can’t find any for you. Some Nintendo games can be like that, though, with codes.

Which level has the most star bits? I am trying to save them for the next hungry luma.

Games Guru: I find that it’s easy to get star bits in the Sweet Mystery Galaxy. Also, the second star run in Melty Monster Galaxy is good.

I have gotten 119 of the 120 stars. I cannot figure out how to do the last star, the mystery star on the Boo Moon galaxy. Can you help me please!?!

Games Guru: Boo Moon is so cool and creepy. When you’re upside down on those pink platforms, follow them — really quickly as they appear, and avoid the ghosts. You’ll find that star at the end of them. You’ll have to kind of jump up while you’re upside down, which is hard. But you’ll get it after a few times.

      use a second player for the majority, at the end, avoid or smash all the Hammer Bros., but you need to get the three Boomerang Bros. to beat it, at that point, another Launch Star will appear, launch to go to a small planetoid with Rosalina waiting for you. Talk to her and Star #242 is yours!!!!! Then Rosalina will join you on Starship Mario!!

  4. I didn’t finish but from wat i saw it was fun, more challenging, and HILATIOUS!!! 🙂 😀

  5. Cool but the first one’s better

  42. when can you get green stars?

    • Once you beat bowser, unlock world s and get every comet medal and star so you have 120 stars and them you beat bowser again and then its the credits but then it show rosalina telling a story to the lumas and then green stars are in every single level, hidden.

    • you have to get all 120 regular power stars first
