Super Mario Galaxy

Do you have any tips for Super Mario Galaxy?

Games Guru: Here are two tips that can help you do well in this fun game.

— If you’re using the second player Wii-mote, experiment with your powers. You can activate stars, shake bushes for coins, help destroy boulders and much more.

— The bee suit lets you do more than fly; try climbing on honeycombs or anything fuzzy while wearing it.

  1. Luigi Quote: Eek! A ghost!

  2. After much searching, I think I have the answer about Super Mario Galaxy DS. There is a video someone posted on the internet, that shows a secret galaxy allowing the player to transfer the game to a nintendo DS, using nintendo wi-fi connection. But they faked the vidio so that it looks suprisingly real, so I think that’s how the rumer started.

  3. To halaswisscheese: I don’t think so it is probably just a rumor. The reason I don’t think so is because I have searched for it on nintendo’s website, I have searched for it on websites saying they know everything about this game and I have searched for it at places like ebay and game reatailers.

    To shadowroy64: The grand stars count like normal stars when you’r talking about the number of stars you have, so if you get the last grand star before the other 9 you will still have to get 9 more.

    I have 10 more stars left before I Fight Bowser. It says on the glass platform. I also have the red star.If I get the last grand star Before getting the 10 power stars, do I fight Bowser? Or do I just have to get 9 more stars? Or even 10?

  6. There are lives hiddin. find them!

  7. Daredevil commits are hard!!!

    • daredevil comets are the easyest but purple coin ones are hard….stupid quicksand and purple goo and black holes and other stuff

  8. to get unlimited lives, go to the garage, smash the block, Go in a dome ,repeat

    I have 121 stars as both Mario and Luigi, done it in 21 days. if anyone wants to know something, ask away.

  11. kopaka_nuva witch level do you go to to get yoshi??

  12. To anyone who needs help on this game:

    Ask me anything.

  13. to fredthefurrypotatoe:

    This is partly true. When you get all of the power stars including purple coin comets, you will be able to use a luigi head for your file icon,(because you also unlock super luigi galaxy) but you don’t have to make a mii called luigi.

    i have 70 some stars

    Hey, does anyone know if this works?
    If you make a Mii and call him luigi, then use him as a save file shape, you’ll get to start using luigi once you beat the game. It hasn’t worked with me.
    And the timed purple coin missions are annoying.

  16. Hiya! I’ll give you codes, game tips, anything! (Except the game itself. Hahaha!)

  17. I have 111 power stars but I can’t do snow cap galaxy.

  18. I pretty much beat this game.

  19. there is no ds game but they are making a super mario galaxy 2

  20. halaswisscheese // November 18, 2009 at 7:02 pm // Reply

    is it possible that you can get this on ds? i have 120 stars with luigi and mario

  21. Is there any order you have to do the bombing in?

  22. I have beaten this game 100% with mario and am still working on it with luigi. I havnt played in a while and need to get back into it. In my opinion, the hardest level in the game is Toy Time Galaxy Purple Coins. I beat that level 1 player, but if you do use 2 players, the second player can freeze the platforms

  23. To blow up the garbage you must move VERY quickly. Each bomb takes 10 secs to explode. the time starts as soon as you pick it up. If you place a bomb on each of the coin pad things you will be able to blow up all of the garbage in time.

  24. Is the game cool?

  25. I beated the center of the univers

  26. you beat bowser by waiting till he ground pounds then go over the red space. then his tail sets o n fire. hit it.

  27. Earthbounded112 // October 8, 2009 at 4:39 pm // Reply

    To beat bowser, try and find some familiar movements that the levels or he himself did before. Also, I got 100% on this game as mario and luigi.

  28. Earthbounded112 // October 8, 2009 at 4:37 pm // Reply

    In the bomb part try putting the bombs where the coin panels are.

  29. I can not beat BOWSER!!!!!!!!!!!! I have 60 power stars.

    I can’t get past the part where you are supposed to blow up garbage using bombs.

    listen to dis. if you go to an edge close to da water, for ex. the stick thingy that has a mushroom on top of it, Mario will look down and turn him around and do a high jump,try to get on top of it, he will do a special jump/dive.

  37. kirby,mariorock // August 20, 2009 at 1:09 pm // Reply

    you should realy try doing all the levels even if you are able to leave because there are all kinds of powers you can take or discover that you won’t get in any other galaxy.

  38. ya if you picked up the latest nintendo power it talked about all the new games at e3-smg 2 new super mario bros. wii and even a couple new zelda games. they even have a whole book on “great summer games”

    to Tip Seeker:
    on the first planet, when he turns into a rock, run behind him and spin his head. then it is like any other time with bowser. for the second planet when bowser becomes a spike ball, hit him with a green punching bag thing. then it is like normal. the third planet is like the other two times you faced bowser.
