World 4-Castle is the castle and last level of World 4 in New Super Mario Bros. The boss here is a Mega Goomba.


Mario encounters the boss, the Mega Goomba

The player starts off on a ledge. They see a large swing move left to right, along with a ? Block containing a coin. The player sees coins floating in the air, as well as another ? Block, this time containing a power-up. The player now has to jump on another swing, which has a Dry Bones wandering on it. A Podoboo and another swing with a Dry Bones can be seen. If the player jumps when the swing is at its max height, they are able to get their first Star Coin. The player falls down, and sees a Dry Bones along with two ? Blocks, containing coins. Now, the player sees a couple of Thwomps. The player can take two routes from here, by either Wall Jumping while collecting coins, or jumping from platform to platform while avoiding a Thwomp. In the lone platform, there is an Invisible Block with a Starman inside of it, along with two visible blocks containing coins. The player sees a couple of Dry Bones and a Super Thwomp. If the player waits while the Super Thwomp is crushing the blocks, they can get their second Star Coin. The player finds a ? Block, containing a power-up. They then encounter more Thwomps and Dry Bones, as well as another Super Thwomp. The player collects some coins and find a Dry Bones here. The player is then at the midway point area, and can see a ? Block containing a power-up, a Podoboo, and another ? Block which contains a 1-Up Mushroom. The player is on a swing, and is near the last Star Coin. The player must jump from the swing to another, while avoiding a Dry Bones and many Podoboos. The player then sees a boss door, and has to battle the Mega Goomba. After the player has defeated it, they gain access to World 5.
