Morton's Lava-Block Castle, or Layer-Cake Desert-Castle Icon.pngCastle is the Castle level of Layer-Cake Desert in New Super Luigi U. It is unlocked by completing Spinning Sandstones and its own completion will unlock Huckit Beach Resort and Broozers and Barrels.


This castle begins near a moving platform with a Red Ring above it. A group of smaller moving platforms are found lowering into the lava. More moving platforms are found, along with a group of Brick Blocks. A moving platform with a Dry Bones on it is found, followed by one contains multiple Dry Bones. More moving platforms are found, along with a stationary platform. Several smaller platforms are found rising out of the lava. At the end of the area, the boss door is found on a platform. Morton serves as the castle's boss, and the fight is identical to that of New Super Mario Bros. U.

  • Star Coin 1: The first Star Coin is encased inside a box made of Brick Blocks; the player must jump on top of the box and ground pound in order to retrieve the it.
  • Star Coin 2: First, the player must get an Ice Flower to freeze a Dry Bones. To get the second Star Coin, the player must wait until the stone blocks are separated and throw the Dry Bones into the lava at the Star Coin.
  • Star Coin 3: The player must jump from the last stone block in the level over the door leading to the boss fight to collect the last Star Coin.
