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.

    Hello, I am new to this site, but I have pretty much PWND this game. With all but blue coins remaining, I have 117 sprites with all the hidden ones revealed. If you need help, please contact me.

    if you get 100 coins at each place, you will get a shine sprite

    there is a secret star in the beach place. one of the weeds(when squirted) makes a ditch/tomb. squirt the flat wall all the way and watch the magic happen


  4. in almost every level there is a guy who says do you want one of my sunglasses (or something like that) if you get 30 shine sprites he will give you one P.S. if you beat the game he will give you a hawian shirt

    How do I get to the volcano? Where do I save Peach?

    • To save Peach, you have to go into the volcano. To get in the volcano, you have to get past all the levels where you run around spraying shadow Mario(the guy that looks like a blue version of Mario, but with a paintbrush).

      to get to the volcano and save peach;collect all the sprites in every stage up up to episode.[collect all of them if you want]

  7. the yellow stuff in the pipes is for yoshi. squirt it with juice.

  8. shadow mario is really bowser jr.

  9. Dear, I live fast,never die,
    this game is pretty fun,but also a bit of a challnge. I’m currently stuck, doing anything I can to figure out what to do on some levels,or getting mad when I have to redo a level over and over. I will say that if any of your friends have it and see if they’ll let borrow it or something like that.If you like a good brain teaser,surprizingly, this game is for you.

  10. Dear jw…,You get Yoshi by beating episode 4 of Pinna Park. To kill the eggs you squirt them. Then make them pound you (dodge!) in the sand then jump on them. Come back and squirt Shadow Mario.

      Dear Dooku,
      WRONG!!! What you do is you Collect 35 Shine sprites. Trust me. Beating level 4 of Pinna Park does nothing and i know because I have tried…

  11. watch chuggaconroy on utube he got 120 sprites!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  12. Oops, heh heh, I meant the Gelato Beach stage not the Ricco Harbor stage.

  13. How do you beat the level a sand bird is born? I tried looking on ign, but the way to get the 8th red coin wasn’t very helpful, in fact it made me feel less confiedent about getting it.It said that I have to ride the sand bird all the way to the top of the spire that it circles.This level is in the Ricco Harbor stage if that helps you understand what I’m talking about.Do not think I do not understand what the walkthrough is telling me to do, I just don’t think it is possible, if there is, tell me.

    • first of all get seven red coins then ride the sand bird all the way up the tower and the last red coin is on the tower.

    I am stuck on the levels Scrubbing Sirena Beach and Piantas In Need. How do you beat them?

    • mariofanatic64 // December 25, 2009 at 11:16 pm // Reply

      for ‘scrubbing sirena beach’, you have to spray all of the goop in the time limit.
      for ‘piantas in need’, you have to save and wash all the piantas in the time limit.

      • mariofanatic64 // December 25, 2009 at 11:18 pm //

        when the shine sprite appears, talk to some of the piantas you saved, im pretty sure they reward you.

  16. Action Trev, they are fire blobs(if you touch them, you take damage). You can clear them with Yoshi’s juice. Plus, once you clean the Shine Gate, a Shine Sprite will pop up. Get to it with the Rocket Nozzle.

  17. Wario World:

    The same means of beating the cannon apply in a Pina Park level. If you have beaten this level, beating “Uncork the Waterfall” should be easy.

  18. jw…., you get Yoshi after you get a certain number of Shine Sprites. The same rules apply for the Rocket Nozzle and the Turbo Nozzle.

  19. I have a guidebook for the game. I know how to get every Shine Sprite and blue coin. If anyone has questions, just ask.

      this is too much to ask, but i still need to get 40 more blue coins, and i don’t know where they are. could you post a list of blue coins for me to check each spot for them, that would be great, but its ok if you cant do it. i understand writing down 240 locations isn’t fun.

    to mario1,
    after the level starts go across the bridge, and turn right. make your way around to the back. a pianta tells you to go down a hole. fine with me!!! 🙂 come up out of the hole and hop through the spaces with no fire paint. jump up the platform to find… F.L.U.D.D.! walk into … him? and hop up another platform. there’s the mayor covered in flame goop. how is he not burned up?! :0 anyway, spray him to get your shine.

  26. how do you beat the level goopy inferno

  27. to sarazamthux you have to throw 3 peppers in his mouth after you throw each pepper you then must throw any other fruit but you might miss

  28. Action Trev // June 29, 2009 at 4:37 pm // Reply

    How do you get to Noki Bay and what the heck are those yellowish moving squiggly lines on some of the pipes in Delfino Plaza?

  29. marioman- you can actually kill those annoying ducks by bringing them over to the sand plants and spraying the plants when the ducks are in range. The level is a lot easier this way.

  30. how do u beat the game!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!????????????

  31. jtbethune // May 27, 2009 at 7:18 pm // Reply

    how do i beat the last level on the docks? i cant find out what to do. i cant find yoshi even though it says something about him on the name of the level?

    • Numero Awesome // February 16, 2010 at 10:21 am // Reply

      First thing’s first, jtbethune. You need to have a certain amount of stars to unlock things, which in this case is 35 shine sprites. Now when youhave sprayed shadow mario in isle delfino, you get yoshi for any level. Now when try to get the fruit for yoshi, you have to get on top of the Fruit tubs and find a durian (the kick fruit). The thing is that The durian has blocked other fruit from leaving. so when you start to ground pound on the tubs and the fruit doesnt come out, jump on the whell on the tubes and the durian will come out. If you need anything else, Let me know. I check this website daily.

  32. to maniac:

    Hover Nozzle off the Spiral path so that the hole with the Turbo Nozzle (gray block is behind the logs) and make sure you land only on the logs.
