World 6: Throwback Galaxy
Return of the Whomp King
This is a remake of an old classic Mario 64 level. The goal is to make it to the top of the tower where a Whomp awaits. You can quickly run passed most of the enemies on the way, just ascend while moving to the left.
At the top will be the mentioned Whomp, along with a floor symbol marked with a Bowser face. Lure the Whomp over to the symbol and wait for it to smahs into the ground. Jump on its back and ground pound it, revealing a long passage to the stage's boss, the Whomp King.
The Whomp King is similar to his smaller versions, but the main difference is that he can stun you when he slams the ground. To avoid this, jump as he lands to avoid the shockwave. Also, the king is much too large to simply jump on to. Use his feet as ramps to quickly reach his back and ground pount his symbol. After a few hits, he's yield and you'll gain yet another Power Star.
Silver Stars in the Whomp Fortress
The layout of this stage is the same as in the previous one. Instead of a boss, you'll need to collect silver stars to unlock a Power Star. Most of them will require the use of the Cloud Flower. The first silver star is near the start, in plain sight. The second can be found underneath a moving platform: use your clouds to safely grab it before falling, then make more to ascend back up. The third can be found by slading passed a Thwomp and making clouds around the area's perimeter.
The fourth star is hanging on a cloud above a pool of water. Remember, that if you fall into the water you'll lose your clouds. Carefully jump to the star and either jump back, or you can simply fall into the water, making your way back up the tower. For the fifth and final star, ascend the flagpole at the very top. There is a 1UP here you can grab, but you main objective is to use your cloud powers to leap forward. With all five stars, a Power Star will form, completing the level.
