Stone-Eye Zone, or Layer-Cake Desert-1, is the first course of Layer-Cake Desert in New Super Mario Bros. U. It features several Stone-Eyes and Sand Geysers, and various ice cream cones and a large cake are visible in the background. It is also the last course in Easy Pack.

Completing this course unlocks Perilous Pokey Cave and Fire Snake Cavern as well as a red Toad House. In addition, it also triggers the first instance of Nabbit and unlocks the Pipe Cannons used to get from world to world.

Layout[edit]

The course's main gimmick is the Stone-Eyes, which move in various direction (side to side, up and down, etc.) and sink into the sand/ground when Ground Pounded. Various palm trees can be used to reach higher places. Quicksand also exists to hinder the player and stop progress.

Star Coins[edit]

  • Star Coin 1: The first Star Coin sits in plain sight, and the player must leap off the Stone-Eye below to obtain it.
  • Star Coin 2: The player must use the Flying Squirrel suit to reach a Warp Pipe on the tree after the Checkpoint Flag; it leads to the second Star Coin.
  • Star Coin 3: Within a Sand Geyser, the third Star Coin can be collected by waiting until the geyser comes up, or when the Stone-Eye moves so the player can grab it while the geyser is up.
