Follow Me, Bob-omb is the first mission of the Space Storm Galaxy in Super Mario Galaxy 2.


The player starts on two large glass spheres with Pull Stars in them, one of which is surrounded by Zap Balls. Using Pull Stars above the planet, the player can reach a Launch Star that will send the player to the next planet, which is a two-dimensional platforming segment around a cylinder-shaped planet. The player has to make use of vertically and horizontally moving platforms while avoiding moving electric rails. The Launch Star at the end will send the player to a large, clear planet where they need to lure a Bob-omb along the path underneath to blow up a barrier blocking the player from the Launch Star. The Launch Star will send the player to a long, half-cylindrical with Topmen. At the end of the planet are Pull Stars the player needs to use to navigate a field of Zap Nozzles and Zap Balls. The Power Star at the end is surrounded by an electric rail the player needs to move around.
