Lava Rock Lair, otherwise known as World 4-Castle Icon.pngCastle, is the final level of World 4 in Super Mario 3D World. It can be accessed after completing Spike's Lost City, and its own completion frees the orange Sprixie Princess who builds a Clear Pipe to World 5. 50 Green Stars are required to open the level.

Layout[edit]

The player begins the level on a raised platform, with a slope that leads to an area with a Brolder, a Goomba Tower, and some Brick Blocks. Lava Bubbles are then found, along with a rotating platform. After the rotating platform, a Red Ring and a Brolder can be found, along with two more rotating platforms. After the player goes through a Clear Pipe, the player arrives at a long pathway containing several Brolders, Goomba Towers, and Brick Blocks. At the end of the pathway, a row of Lava Bubbles can be found in front of a Warp Pipe that leads to Boss Brolder. Behind the Warp Pipe is a Hidden Block with a Super Mushroom inside of it. After Boss Brolder is defeated, a Warp Box that leads to the Goal Pole and the orange Sprixie Princess appears.

Green Stars[edit]

  • Green Star 1: The player must stomp on the Brolder from starting position and throw it onto a P Switch, then immediately go on the second P Switch adjacent to the first one, and cross the now dropped bridge to grab the star. In multiplayer mode, another player can be used to hit one of the P Switches.
  • Green Star 2: After going through the Clear Pipe that goes through lava, the player sees a Mystery Box. The player must throw stomped Brolders onto two P Switches and step on a third switch to grab the Green Star. In multiplayer, two additional players can also be used.
  • Green Star 3: After the Mystery Box, the player sees a Green Star off a ledge. The player must stomp on a Brolder and take to the ledge and then throw the Brolder off the ledge.

Stamp[edit]
