The Secret of Ricco Tower
From the Super Mario Wiki, the Mario encyclopediaJump to navigationJump to search
Ricco Tower is accessed by reaching the high narrow platforms surrounding it, which can be achieved in numerous ways. The quickest method involves reaching the lower port and wall jumping on the platform's supports to reach the top. The player can also use the Rocket Nozzle from one of the plaza roofs to launch themselves to the high platforms. Upon entering the Ricco Tower, Shadow Mario will appear to take F.L.U.D.D. away, as he does with all secret levels upon the player's first visit.
The player will start the secret course facing four long, rotating platforms. To cross them, the player needs to stay on the most level surface of the platform while jumping from one platform to the next. After the four rotating platforms is a stationary platform with two tall walls on either side, the player can reach a 1-Up Mushroom above by Wall Jumping. Afterward are three horizontally moving and rotating gear-shaped platforms the player has to jump between to cross to the next segment. The next set of platforms are several long, rotating platforms like those at the start of the stage. However, these ones are angled and turn in different direction, and the second to last platform is much larger than the rest. After the final platform is the stage's Shine Sprite.
