Cheating Dome presents: Super Mario 3D World for Wii U
5 Stamps are not collected in levels and appear to be portraits of the 5 main characters (including Rosalina).These stamps are only unlocked when you beat all levels with each character. For instance, if you beat every level with Mario, you will get the Mario Stamp. If you play the game with multiple players, they all count for this challenge so long as they touch the end flag. This means that the shortest way to get all 85 Stamps is to play the game once with three characters playing at once, then play every level again with Rosalina and the remaining character. You can get 5 Stars by your save profile in Super Mario 3D World. To get each star, complete the following challenges:
Beat Worlds 1-8
Get every Green Star in Worlds 1 through World Flower
Beat World Star, World Mushroom, and World Flower
Get every Green Star in the game
Get every Green Star, Gold Flagpole and Stamp (you must beat every world with every character, including Rosalina)
Alternate method: You can get more lives (about 900) if you toss the first shell through the pipe, so that it bounces back and forth on the lip of the lower pipe. As long as you are facing the right direction (East/West) the shell will bounce back and forth very fast. A modified version of the NES version of the classic Nintendo arcade game Mario Bros. called Luigi Bros. can be played from the menu screen of Super Mario 3D World. It is unclear how this game is unlocked at this point, but it will autmatically be unlocked early on Wii Us with New Super Luigi U saves on them. In it you can play as two different versions of Luigi simultaneously. Bring the Fire Flower power-up with you to the first level of Star World. Halfway through the level, after you finish your ride on the dragon, you'll spot two torches. You can light those torches with your fireballs, which opens a gate and produces a cloud. Ride the cloud up into the air and light the blocks you find there to uncover Link, gaining the second green star in the process. If the best power-ups are in the big box, the pattern is small-big-small-big. If the best power-ups are in the small box, the pattern is big-small-big. The Cat Suit is required for this cheat, so pick one up in World 1-1 Super Bell Hill and hold it in your inventory or wear it through the level. Near the end of the underground portion of the level is a pipe that splits into two paths, one with a loop with coins in it.
On the far side are three long ? blocks that are invisible against the rear wall. Use these to reach the upper path with a lone Koopa patrolling it. Above this Koopa is a hard-to-spot gap in the ceiling. Run up the rear wall to find a red warp pipe. This will warp you to World 2. The Cat Suit is required for this cheat, so have one handy in the inventory or nab it in the area. After exiting the underground portion (with the checkpoint flag) you will come out of a warp pipe with a clear mystery box. Run up the wall that it is touching to reach the top of the waterfall. After jumping across the poisonous water, there will be red warp pipe. This will warp you to World 5.
