Bowser In The Dark World is the fifth level and first boss level of the games Super Mario 64 and Super Mario 64 DS.

Layout Edit

Mario starts out on a platform, connected to another larger platform with a Fire Dispenser and a Block Switch. After this, there is two moving platforms Mario must cross. If Mario goes up a rocky hill on the next platform, he will find another Fire Dispenser. If Mario goes to the top of this ledge, he will be greeted to a Ferris wheel of four platforms. If Mario falls, he will slide down a blue ledge. After the Ferris Wheel, another platform with a 1-Up and a trio of Goombas will appear.

If Mario makes his way up a bridge, he will find a long pathway with many crystals and Amps. Mario will then reach a platform with two yellow ledges coming out of the front and back sides. Going foward reaches a platform with two moving platforms. Finishing this will take Mario to a cross way. Going right will take Mario on a narrow path to a platform with an Amp and a Red Coin. Going left will take Mario to two seesaw platforms which roll depending where Mario is. If Mario jumps to small ledges next to the Seesaws, he can collect 1-Ups and a few Red Coins.

At the end of the seesaws, Mario may climb up some wood to reach the bottom of a slope. However, if Mario goes back the way he came from and jumps to the higher Seesaw, he can make his way to a Red Coin, and a Power Star in the remake. Of Mario presses a switch at the bottom of the earlier mentioned slope, the slope will turn into stairs which Mario must climb.

At the top, if Mario collects all 8 Red Coins, a star will be here. If Mario jumps into the pipe, he will finally meet Bowser. This area is no other than a large Octagon platform with Bombs on some of the corners.
