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.

    Waluigi’s Awsome!

  2. To: Tomare

    I can beat that first level really fast

    all you have to do is this

    when the manta first comes hover right over him until he turns in to two then battle on the big square and use your water spin (spin your control stick around quickly and then press R)

    To Tomare: No there is a much safer way. Go out as far in the ocean as you can, you can go farther in the water that the sting rays and still stand up to spray. You can spray them from here and not get hurt. When u get to the purple ones you can outr run them and they are easy to get rid of them about 20-30 at a time. This is the only way I got this done.

  5. to:rocker, firs of all go to the place u go to to beat bloper in episode one, and go on the house, jump from house to house until u get to the house with the hover nozle on it. get it and hover to the platform closest to the light house.then, hover to the light house. you’ll find the shine sprite at the end of a opstcale course. the catch? before u enter it, shadow mario steals F.L.U.D.D. PS: now can someone tell me HOW TO WIN THE THIRD EPISODE FOR SERINA BEACH, THE MYSTERIUS HOTEL!!!!!!

  6. How do you beat the secret of ricco tower?

  7. For The Siren Beach (hotel), the 1st shine involves electric mantas.

    Shoot water at random is your best option

  8. to shadow: you really think so? i mean it may not have that much action sense you clean grafitti to help u get blue coins, get alternet shines sprites, and get to other worlds easy, but there are alot of bosses. my cousin has ssbb btw

  9. this game is as awsome as ssbb!!!!

    To: superdude, wow I’m getting popular on this, everyones asking questions. Although I’m happy to help. These are just like mini chainchomps. (No thats exactly what they are) To stop them you must have good control of your F.L.U.D.D. so that when you are chaseing them you can spray out the goo from in front of you. Then when you are close to them you spray them with water to cool them off. Now the only diffrence between these and the bigger chain chomp (seen latter on in this world) is that instead of dragging these around by there chains you have to sling them. Once they are cool then you need to grabb their chains and pull back (grabb them by holding down A when you are near the back of their chains) while holding aim the toward the pond/lake thing by the large tree and release A to sling them. Remember that you only have a few seconds to do all of this so you may lose while trying to get it to work. When you are near the pond shoot them in. Once all of the chomps are in the lake a shine sprite will apper and go on top of a tree. Use your hover nozzle to grab it. Let me know if you need anything else.

  26. i love Mario games sooo much!!!

  27. superdude // May 18, 2008 at 6:02 pm // Reply

    to:WonThisThing, ok ty but heres a guestion i might need the answer to to do all that…. how do u win stage one for pinta village chane chomplets unleashed?

  28. Anoynomous // May 17, 2008 at 6:48 am // Reply

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

  29. S.King-

    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.

  38. To: Random person #1

    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?
