She mentions that Merlee in Flipside knows more, so go there next. Speak with her while behind the counter to learn the details of your next objective. It appears Bestovius, from Chapter has something called a "Training Machine" that she needs. Let's go pay him a visit. Visit Bestovius in Chapter Enter Chapter , via the red door from Flipside's tower and head to Bestovius's house at the end of the first section. Turns out, he's not willing to part with the Training Machine until he recovers an item from Watchitt in Yold Town.
Go see Watchitt in Chapter The quickest way to Yold Town is to use the Return Pipe, then re-enter the Chapter 1 door, and select the second chapter. Also remember that everyone attacks the same way: by jumping on an enemies head. Some Pixls can also be used to attack, as well as Bowser's fire breath. You will be using him more then anyone else do to his flip ability.
When on the ground, press down on the D-pad to use her umbrella as a shield, raising her defense to unheard of levels. You find Peach just after Chapter 1. Use her umbrella to get across long gaps safely and to defend against tough opponents. You find Bowser in Chapter 3. Bowser doesn't have much in the way of special abilities. Because of his size and weight he cant jump as high or run as fast as the other characters.
You're mainly going to use Bowser as an offensive unit. Use him to clear out rooms full of tough enemies. You can use his fire breath to light candles. Luigi joins you in Chapter 6. Luigi is just like Mario minus the flip ability. You'll use him a lot later in the game for his jumping ability especially in the Overthere. When you enter a shop, talk to the clerk. All prices are non-negotiable. Sell: sell items in your inventory. You have to sell the items at just below what they are worth items vary.
Store: you are allowed to store up to 32 items. You can reclaim these items at any shop. Pick up: withdraw stored items. Check points: the clerk will tell you how many points you have accumulated. After you earn a certain amount of points, you get a free item. For a complete list of cards, see section 6 - catch cards Cards can be obtained through finding them on the field this is the only way rare cards can be found , or by using a catch card or catch card SP on an enemy.
If it succeeds, that enemy will become its own card. Cards are always equipped, and never wear out. But what do they do? Simple: for every card you have of an enemy, your attack does double damage to said enemy. Even after you beat the game, you can continue and revisit old worlds. To revisit a world, simply go through its door on Flipside Tower.
If you have already obtained the pure heart from that world, you will be able to choose which level you want to visit , , , , ect. Doors are simple enough, walk up to them you do know what a door looks like right? Pipes are a staple of the Mario series. They are exactly what they sound like: a bit green, red, or blue pipe. To use them, jump on top of them and press down on the D-pad. Not all pipes are useable. Be careful though, as Piranha plants like to hide in them.
Bricks or blocks come in 5 types: Sand, item, brown, dimensional and multicolored!. Sand blocks are brown and look like they are made of bricks.
They can be destroyed by Boomer, or by hitting them from underneath jump into them. Sand blocks can sometimes hold hidden items. Item blocks are yellow and are marked by a question mark in the center. Item blocks are permanent, in that they cannot be destroyed.
All item blocks hold an item of some kind. The item can be retrieved by jumping into the block from underneath, or by setting Boomer on top of the block. Brown blocks cannot be destroyed and do not hold items. They can be identified by an X that crosses from corner to corner. Dimensional blocks appear as a yellow block with two arrows painted on it.
They will only appear in one dimension at a time. In order to see and use a dimensional block, you must be in the same dimension as it. If the block is in the wrong dimension and cannot be used, you can flip into its dimension and jump into it to make it change dimensions. They come in all sizes and colors, and perform a special task when hit. That task can by anything from opening a door to moving a pipe or making a chest appear.
