You know a game is hard when it comes with a 'how to play this game' dvd

Up to 95 stars now and finding it very difficult now, a lot of the prankster stars are very hard. Had about 20 goes trying to get 100 purple coins on the Tree Trunk slide last night, and only managed completing it with around 85. Surviving it is hard enough!

I'm at around 115 stars now. Beat Block galaxy is ******* fast on the prankster comet, and Tall Trunk's slide for purple coins is silly difficult too.

Just want to get them out of the way so I can start hunting for green stars

i didnt find Tall Trunk too bad ... the Rainbow Slidey one on World S has been giving me sleepless nights though.

Hightail Falls speed run will be the death of me, of that I'm convinced. Either me or the Wii remote.

I think the hardest Speed Run I did so far was the Super-massive galaxy, had 1 second left on the clock when I finished that! It's the bit at the end with the wrigglers that ate up all my time, I think there was a quicker way through it that I wasn't spotting though.

Just did Tall Trunk comet. Wasn't too bad really. Took me under 10 attempts and finished with 105.

I managed it, finished with exactly 100. Now to try and do Beat Block galaxy...

Edit: Really don't understand, had about 5-7 goes on Beat Block early and was finding it murder. Just switched Wii on and did it first time without any trouble!

It's certainly tricky, are you doing it normal or the speed-run?

Got all 120 stars earlier and have now got the first 8 or so green stars.

Just normal... I got to the end earlier, with the comet medal, but I had some how missed one of the silver stars. I've been unable to duplicate that success. But at least I have my route sorted out.

I'll get it done. Or I'll never sleep again.

How are you finding the green stars? I'm finding my attention is waning a little, I've done the first 3 worlds or so.

A good tip is to switch to Luigi to pick up a few of them, as he can jump higher and a lot are placed just outside of Mario's reach.
