Cheats, Codes & FAQs
Control title screen
On the title screen, before you press Start, tap the different worlds on the main map with your stylus. They should show their animation as if you were entering them in the game. The sky also changes depending on the time of day on the system clock..
When you see a Mad Paragoomba, use Gloom or jump on it and knock it out of the sky. It will now be a regular Goomba, but red.
How to beat Boos 1
Ghosts fear the light. Use Rage and touch the Boo with your flames. This should scare him off. REMEMBER: This does not work on Big Boos or the blind-folded Boos.
How to beat Boos 2
When playing the bonus level before the Boss in Shriek Mansion or Bowser's Villa, do not poke the Boos. It works better to "rub", or scribble, on them instead.
How to beat Bowser
During phase one Bowser should sic the angry leader of the HammerBros. on you. Just hit him with Perry or throw other HammerBros. at him. During phase two, Bowser attacks you himself. Dodge his flames and hammers. To hit him, use Rage and touch him with your flames for several seconds. Each time you hit him, he changes his Vibes to change his attack pattern. To get more Vibe Energy, get him to ram himself at the Bowser statues on either side of the battlefield. The smashed statue should drop a large Blue Crystal. REMEMBER: To jump over Bowser easier, you can bounce off his head. You can also stand on the Bowser statues. During phase three, Bowser should grow giant. Dodge his attacks, and eventually he will slam both his claws down, dropping Bomb-ombs from the sky. REMEMBER: Avoid his claws when he moves them. You can get hit by them. To hit Bowser, pick up a Bomb-omb and hold it until it starts blinking. Stand underneath his head, then throw the Bomb-omb upward with perfect timing so that it explodes on his nose. Try throwing it immediately when it beeps for the seventh time. Every time you hit him, his attack pattern changes. When he gets down to one hit remaining, the Vibe Scepter should float up and a pastel-purple bubble will appear around Bowser's head. This is Bowser using Calm to recover his HP. To stop him, attack the bubble several times with Perry by jumping and using Y or B.
How to beat DryBones
No matter how many times you jump off a DryBones' head, it will keep re-building itself. To get rid of it, throw something at it or stand next to it and use Joy or Rage.
Purchase the "Natural Power" item from the Shop. If you need to refill the yellow bar below your heart, find a safe place to stand still with no enemies nearby that can harm you. Allow Peach to stand idle and do not use the touch screen or controls. The umbrella will cover Peach's head and the bar will refill.
Opening capsules easily
When you see the flying balls that drop coins when you throw something at them, you do not have to find something to throw. It is much easier to stand underneath it and use Rage.
