New Super Mario Bros.: 3-Ghost House
A ghost house on the beach? We have to deal with it one way or another. The item blocks will make items pop out to the left or right, instead of just appearing on top. The ? Switch will make stairs appear on a slope you can't normally climb (unless you're Shell Mario). The stairs only appear temporarily, so climb quickly. To the right of the first ? Switch is a door to the first Star Coin. Bounce off one of the pumpkins to reach it. There are several Boos in the level to make your life difficult. Once you hit the switch and go up the stairs, go to the left set of stairs while they remain to get the second Star Coin. Once you ascend the stairs on the right, go right. down, then left to reach the next switch. Go back up some of the stairs and drop through the gap to a door. Through that door is an item block that has several items cycling through it. If you get the shell, you can climb the stairs and use the shell to break through brick blocks on the right wall. This leads to the third Star Coin. The door at the top of the stairs leads to the goal.
