Skipping feels impossible but if you devote a little bit of time and practice, it's not too bad. Getting to 50 is the hardest bit in my opinion as you have to adjust to the rhythm changes. Once you get to 50, if you find the right rhythm, it's not too difficult to get from there to 100.

Contrastingly, I had the opposite situation regards the skipping. I could get to 40-50 every time, it just took me a lot of goes to get that little bit of luck I needed to get to 100. Weird! I once lost it at 98 as well. :x

The volleyball one is probably the most boring moon in the game.

One man should not have this much power in this game. Luckily I'm not an ordinary man.

The skipping is easy. I keep seeing people saying it's too hard, I don't get it, you literally just press a button to a rhythm. There is a glitch that does it for you though if you're really struggling. The volleyball is a strawberry floating bitch though. It's painfully slow. 2 player mode is definitely an easier alternative.

If you have very good natural rhythm or play a lot of rhythm-action I can see the skipping rope being piss-easy. It's hard for most people to be that consistent though IMO. I certainly found it pretty hard.

I think my best is 55 or something.

Do you need two people in two player or just take control of the cap

Now on 845 moons

Just take control of the cap and move Mario to the side out the way

Done, my god that’s an awful moon to get just slow.

888 moons now. Can see two left at the dark side of the moon and the skipping one :dread:

That puts me up to 891. What else do I have to do? Have all purple coins too

The skipping one is easily the worst moon to get. It's hard enough even starting it let alone doing 100. I tried it on the bike which makes it a bit easier, but it's a pretty gooseberry fool addition along with the crap volleyball one.

I don’t know what they were thinking with those moons.

They should have put them at 50.

I was thinking that, 50 would have been acceptable

Also got two on the same level in the dark side of the moon where you have to speed run and the floor disappears

I don't understand the struggle with the skipping rope moon. I think I did it on my 2nd try? There are much harder moons in the game.

Point in question, this one took me a few tries but it was fun as hell.

Agreed - I don't think the skipping or volleyball one's are that challenging. Some of the timed running and floor disappearing ones are more challenging in my opinion.

Overall I would say they pitched the level of difficulty in this pretty much spot on - but I would love a few harder areas in a sequel!

For me Super Mario 64 is still quite far ahead of this - three quarters of the moons are just simple 'red coins'. I would say that I preferred Sunshine more than this. The next mario needs to have a proper hub world rather than this stupid area hopping which totally jars the experience.

I never understood the love for sunshine. I only liked the levels without fludd

The fact that it took you a second try despite being the most boring thing in the game by far

I actually can’t believe you were able to get to 100 within two attempts. Do you have super human reflexes/rhythm?

I think you’re exaggerating a tad with the moons but there’s definitely too much filler and repetition in the moon count for me.

Personally Galaxy 1 and 2 remain king for me.

Having played Smash Bros against Jezo my answer to this is probably yes, he does
