The Flipswitch Galaxy is a small galaxy, having only one mission, in the game Super Mario Galaxy. The Galaxy is composed of 18 Flipswitch Panels which Mario must step on. After all of them have been turned yellow, a Power Star appears. The background is a scene from Super Mario Bros., as shown in the pictures. They periodically switch between variations of World 1-1 and World 1-2. Even though the level sounds simple, a Sentry Beam spawns out circle shaped lasers which can damage Mario. Some Flipswitch Panels are also covered with moving spiked platforms that can hurt Mario.

The galaxy can only be unlocked if the player has at least seven Power Stars.

Starting Planet[edit]

Mario in the Flipswitch Galaxy

The Starting Planet is the largest planet in the Flipswitch Galaxy and the only accessible one. It is covered in Flipswitch Panels (18 of them exactly) and several hazards such as spiked platforms and electrical barriers. The platforms and electrical barriers move around the planet creating hazards for Mario to dodge as he goes through them.

The only other resident of the planet is a Sentry Beam that releases laser shockwaves as Mario goes through the planet. Mario must flip all the Flipswitch Panels from blue to yellow and then, when they are all flipped, they will turn green. Once the Flipswitch Panels are green the laser-shooting Sentry Beam will turn into a trampoline and release a Power Star for Mario to get. The electric barriers and spiked platforms will also be deactivated.

Block Planets[edit]

Inaccessible Block Planets.

These breakable block planets are seen when Mario is flying to the galaxy and cannot be reached (except through hacking). These aren't really planets but rather Brick Blocks floating in space. Each of these blocks contain one coin.[1]

Mission[edit]

This galaxy consists of only the following mission.
