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.

  10. I can’t get 200 coins to get to carona mountain

    • You don’t have to get 200 coins who told you that? You have to get past all of the levels where you just run around spraying shadow mario. There is one level like that on each area.

    • you dont have to get 200 coins. just get 6 shinesprites on each level and u will open the gate.also, if u triple jump on the side of the large shine gate, use the hover nozzle, u can get up without the rocket nozzle!

    redfred if you still need help on the manta storm tip wet them in the ocean so if you run out of water you can just reload

  14. hey boo or wonthisgame i need help on gooey inferno p.s. this is an s.o.s.

    • You have to get under the city by finding the right hole and ground-pounding in it and not falling off the mushrooms. Ugh, I hate that level.

  15. i need help on the level manta storm

    • My method (and Chuggaaconroy’s) is to stay in the Ocean, where you have an unlimited supply of water, and spray the manta constantly until it gets into their smallest forms and FLUDD tells you that they’re after you.

  16. hey boo im stuck on the beach canons secret plz help!!

  17. On carona mountain, the mud boat isn’t effected by lava at the slightest, but if it touches any of the walls, it explodes. Nintendo logic.(sigh)

    Technically it’s magma, not lava, since it’s still in the volcano.

    THIS GAME IS BETTER THAN 64!!!!!!!!!!!!

  19. I’ve never played this before, but a friend that goes to my school has it on his GameCube! Do you think there will be a Super Mario Sunshine 2?

    • Yeah there is, it’s called Super Mario Galaxy. Just kidding but it really sort of is. They have had one “Super Mario” platformer game for each home console since the Nintendo 64 (Super Mario 64) except the Wii because there was Super Mario Galaxy 2.

    best game EVER!

  21. in corona mountain if youre not very good using the boat try spraying bit by bit (by this i mean by just touching and releasing the button and taking your time also aim well enough so u stay in the river) it takes a long time but at least u dont fall in the lava and its worth it

  22. Have you ever got stuck on the high platform part?Well,my way is wall jumping twice at 70 degrees in a angle.

  23. Any tips for Noki Bay Level 6 After Mario loses F.L.U.D.D.?

  24. I have half of the blue coins but I cant find the rest and I keep on dying while trying to get the blue coins in Corona Mountain because the lava boat does not cooperate with me and I keep on hitting the rocks.Can anyone tell me how to get the blue coins in the mountain and where the rest of the blue coins are.

    • The blue coins are not really necessary to complete the game. They are always hard to get, but you can turn 10 of them in for a shine at that one lady’s house where the graffiti for the place with Gooper Blooper is.

  26. To get to noki bay, just look at the sun while standing in the middle of the big beam of light near the shine gate.

  27. how do you go to noki bay

    After you get 120 shine sprites and beat bowser, what does the final ending look like?

    To beat the second pianta village level try to master the sliding trick, which is press B then when mario touches the ground press A.
    It may take awhile but works great if you don’t crash into anything
    (even that guy your racing).

  31. I’m so happy! I finally got about half the shine sprites! It took so long but I did it! Any tips on beating the second pianta village level?

    Yeah you should get this game, because the older the game, the harder it is to find it in good shape.

    I have 115 shines and I can’t find anymore! I think I have one or two bluue coin shines, but where are the rest?

  34. Ha!!!! I have already beaten the game! A long time ago too.

    • Thank goodness! My friend can’t jump up the falling ground on the last boss. Can you tell me tips so I can tell him them? P.S. The platforms are the switches.

    • there is a lot of mario games like this mario 64 is one and there a couple more

    • what do you think the best mario game is i think there all good but you say your fave.

  35. I know everything that has to do with this game except the last level. please ask me stuff.

  36. Dude, i hear this game is awesome. Should i get it?

  37. help with the level with the big hot chainchomp in the pipe on top of shine monument.

      what you have to do is spray the chain chomp until he is blue and then run behind him and grab it’s ‘tail’ and drag it back to the bath. it gets hot again soon after so you have to do the spraying process over again
