World 2: Puzzle Plank Galaxy
The Puzzling Picture Block
This stage will require a high amount of ground pounding to reach various areas. First, move over the "H" shaped platform and ground pound the icon in the center. This will cause the structure to fall apart, crashing into the next area.
There are some Wiggler enemies lurking about, however defeating them is not necessary. Instead, move to the button on the bottom right and ground pound it to summon a launch star to the next planet.
Here, you'll notice a launch star way up in the sky, but no means to reach it. Move across to the edge of the planet and you'll wind up on the opposite end. Ground pound the columns to cause them to appear on the planet's other side. Move back to the planet's starting area and climb the columns to reach the launch star.
This next planet is covered in buzz saws that not only damage you, but will destroy parts of the ground. Move quickly across them and jump past any gaps that form. You'll arrive at several Mandibugs, who can be defeated with ground pounds. Continue ahead and you'll arrive at another launch star leading to the final area.
Move across the planet and locate the ground pound symbols scattered about. Your objective is to move the blocks to form a picture of a Mandibug. When it is complete, a Mandibug stack will appear. Ground pound it twice to defeat it and grab the Power Star it leaves behind.
Another stage in a stage. Start up The Puzzling Picture Block, but when arriving at the planet with the columns, search for a Luma. It requires 70 coins to transform. The best option is to locate Question Mark Coins that will yield several coins. There is also a nearby pipe with a mini-game that can award a large amount of coins. Once you have 70, feed the Luma and you'll be launched to a boss fight.
Bugaboom is like a large Mandibug, so you'll need to ground pound it. However, due to its size, it's not as simple as jumping on its back. Instead, grab the Cloud Flower and use it to get above the boss. The tree in the center even has a branch you can perch on to time your jumps better. After two hits, Bugaboom will become more aggressive: it will start flying and shooting projectiles. It is imperative that you stay in the air and get on its back. After one more ground pound, you'll be victorious and receive a Power Star.
