Set high in the sky, this auto scrolling stage contains very little in the way of solid ground. Instead, players must use the backs of red Para-Beetles to progress through the level. In this way, it is similar to World 5-6 from the main game. Aside from the persistent danger of missing a jump and falling, there are few obstacles in the stage.
