Sunbaked Sand Castle is the third mission of the Dusty Dune Galaxy in Super Mario Galaxy. The mission involves climbing a large castle.


Mario running in Dusty Dune Galaxy.
The sand castle.

The player starts on a circular platform with a switch. Ground Pounding the switch will cause the platform to rise through a series of large Brick Blocks that can crush Mario if he is standing beneath one as it sinks into the platform, eventually leading to a Launch Star that will take the player to a disk shaped planet. Ground Pounding another switch will cause a structure to rise up and the player needs to collect five Star Chips around and on the structure, one of which is in a treasure chest the player needs to open by using a Green Shell. If the player needs to lower the structure, they can do so by Ground Pounding the switch on the opposite side of the platform. Upon collecting all the Star Chips, a Launch Star will appear that will send Mario to a small asteroid with coconuts and a giant prickly plant. Breaking it with a coconut will create another Launch Star that will send Mario to two small planets where the player needs to fight a Pokeynut on one by sending coconuts from the other to fight it. Defeating the Pokey will create a Launch Star that will send Mario to a large stone structure on the underside of the disk planet the player was on before with the Power Star inside. Breaking a crate will reveal a Warp Pipe that leads inside the structure. After the player spins to break the large block, the structure will begin sinking and the player needs to quickly move up the platforms to reach the Power Star before Mario gets crushed, breaking obstacles along the way.
