@Ralizah it's very obscure.... You have to consider multiple objects that aren't seemingly related or important and use them in a way that seems to not be meaningful or purposeful for a rediculously long time. It's almost as obscure as exploiting the jump rope glitch except the game EXPECTS you to figure out you're supposed to do this. And figure out it's actually doing anything at all. Makes me think the jump rope glitch is that actual intended solution

Also i would have some words about that jump rope screen but then sanya would ban me.

@NEStalgia I just looked up the moon in question to see what you were talking about. This sort of thing is the reason I'll never fully swear off outside help for games. I'd rather clear a game with some minimal level of help and actually enjoy it then complete it fully on my own and hate its guts for moons like that.

The jump rope is weirdly easy once you figure out how to consistently score 100+ on it. It's hard to explain.

@Ralizah yeah. I always feel like guides are cheating, but then i remember that this is Nintendo. Back in the 80s they kind of rigged it so the official guide or hint line was essential in some games, so it shouldn't feel broken.

I can't get to 49 consistently.... Did that once...

Ugh, the volleyball minigame! The skipping and RC race weren't a problem, but I'm not sure I can be bothered to try for 100+ in the volleyball. The only satisfaction I get is spiking the ball into the other guy's face...

@Krull Using co-op mode makes this challenge fairly easy. Just move Mario outside the court and use Cappy on his own. I‘d also recommend you stay in the centre as best as possible.

I've finished the main story. I've started to go back and collect any moons that I missed and the ones available after you finish the game.

I know I have every moon available prior to finishing the game....except for the damn jump rope one! My best is in the 60's I think but I can get into the 40's every time I try. I tried using the scooter and was worst. I don't think I'll ever get it! I had no problem with the volleyball though, I got that one on my second try, got to 102 or something and instantly quit! It wasn't fun, I did it all for the moon and I now have no desire to ever replay it.

I will agree that some of the well hidden moons seem impossible without looking at a guide. I had trouble with the binocular one on the Cap Kingdom! I knew it was something with the binoculars but I had no clue what.

Yeh, that volleyball mini-game really bites, just found it today - it's so tedious, it seems to take about 5 minutes just to get to 30. Not sure when I'll bother pursuing that one any further.

Can I send my Switch + game to one of you, so that you can complete all those stupid mini games for me? I pay in ogocoins.

@Octane I googled "ogocoins" and came up with search results for some weird 5 month old domain names. Explain yourself.

@Ralizah it more than likely means yer not going to get payed much for yer efforts thus ending in getting ripped off.

@Ralizah also the final bound bowl race. The gold one. Not a chance. Came in second but only after dozens of retires and intense physical hand pain. Races and such cause me to grip controllers until they stress creak...

@NEStalgia I just completed the bound bowl races today. The normal ones and then the longer hidden ones.

I hate those purple coins, though. I'm missing three in New Donk City and, for the life of me, I can't find out where they are. Also having a difficult time finding a bunch of moons in the Sand Kingdom...

@Ralizah mrrgrrgrr.... I got all bound bowls but the last long one. It's infuriating. So close, once, and then never again.

Really annoying moon? Diving from the big pot. It shouldn't be hard but the camera makes it hard, and hard to figure out what youre supposed to do. I got it in half an hour or so but having to warp and carefully line up over and over for a largely blind jump is just frustrating and i want even sure i was doing the right thing.

I'm missing 1 to 3 coins in most kingdoms. I got lost, post game, ndc, lunch, lake, cascade all purple coins but all others are missing 1-3 I'll never find.

Yeah sand kingdom was strangely hard to find all the moons considering it's near the beginning of the game. I bought a lot of toad hints.

Up to 807 moons. Most of the remaining ones are ones like jumprope i know i won't be doing.

@Ralizah There were a few in the starting area behind a ledge which I missed. I think... The last three were tricky.

@Ralizah rarely has a video game ever made be so openly angry as that bottom level games bullet bill thing. I have not made those jumps successfully once. Lost 2000+ coins trying. Actually screaming unpolite things at the screen. Giving up forever on that one.

Edit: the scooterless scooter run, too. All of it. I only get half way up the second section using every boost i can think of

@NEStalgia So you died 200+ times, huh? Well, it's not like anyone could ever say you didn't try. That moon can be a bit tricky. You absolutely need to have perfect timing on those platforms.

For the scooterless scooter one (lol), the triple jump is your friend for sections that involve scaling platforms. For longer flat sections, try combining long jumps with rolling. So, if there's a ledge and then a stretch of space you could triple jump up to it, long jump and then, without losing momentum, transition into a roll. Of course, you want to mash the boost button while you're rolling. It can be tricky to get the rhythm down. A lot of this game's platforming involves managing Mario's momentum.

I gotta say, I love the way Mario controls in this game. If they took out the BS motion gesture stuff, it'd be absolutely perfect.

althought this is 1 of the must get titles for switch, im not getting because im very poor in platforming jumping.. i will get more frustration than enjoyment out of this.

@Swordsman83 The core story related moons are really easy, though. There's not a huge amount of actual platforming required to complete the game.

@Ralizah between those sections I've died a few hundred times more than that. Back to 9999 after the final stage attempts again though. Only good part about it, you make money by dying

I admit i played 64 on pc with a Logitech pad the first time (bought ds version to play on 3ds afterwards)... But it was never worse than this for jumps to me. Yeah the sloppy camera was frustrating beyond equal though. Can't fault it though, it was the first game with a movable camera at all...

But yeah that bullet and scooter trail aren't going to happen in afraid. I did get both moons from the invisible platform piranhas though.

I may give up the last level too. I know i can do it, it's not that hard, and I'm near the end, but it's Soo frustrating doing the whole first part over and over only to die in the pokio segment on 5 seconds and have to start over.

@Swordsman83 nah the platforming is solid.... Were talking about the very very final post game stuff that's supposed to be excessively punishing. These in particular deny you the use of cappy....a key part of your move set. It would be like playing smash with a broken y button.... Only the game EXPECTS This. These levels are pretty much Mario Souls. Only absolute perfection works. Most players probably will never see them. You need, what 550 moons or so just to open it.... And then you need to finish another brutal gauntlet for these to appear.

Jump rope in the other hand is plain broken and is normal content

@NEStalgia

if i play just to clear story mode, its normal or "easy" but if i want to 100%, near impossible for me as my platforming/jumping is poorer than most people ?
