Tunnel to the Dark Side of the Moon is the twelfth course in the Story Mode of Super Mario Maker 2. It is set in the underground theme and in the Super Mario Bros. 3 style. It is posted by Mischievous Mole, and has a difficulty rating of 2/4 stars. Completing this course in Story Mode awards Mario 150 Coins.


The level begins with a Buzzy Beetle on the ceiling and a few Piranha Plants. Afterwards, Mario must enter a Warp Pipe to reemerge in an upside-down version of the level. Mario can jump and hit a ? Block containing a Super Mushroom. Mario can also jump onto the ? Block and jump again to earn a 10-Coin. After passing a single Cannon, more groups of Piranha Plants, and another Buzzy Beetle, Mario must enter another Warp Pipe to return to the rightside-up version of the level. Mario can backtrack to a previously unreachable ? Block containing a Super Mushroom, then use a Buzzy Beetle shell to defeat four Piranha Plants and earn another 10-Coin. Mario must cross another pair of Piranha Plants to enter a third warp pipe. He can backtrack to a previously unreachable ? Block and earn a 1-Up Mushroom, then cross some Hard Blocks to a Seesaw near a 30-Coin, where he must then enter a Warp Door leading to a Warp Pipe, which in turn leads to the goal. Optionally, Mario can run past the Warp Pipe to a Hidden Block containing a 1-Up Mushroom marked by Track.


"I think I tunneled all the way to the other side of the moon, because everything is upside down there! It's pretty neat but kinda disorienting. If you wanna slide down a slope, you gotta tilt Control Stick↑!"
