The Hightail Falls Galaxy is a galaxy in the game Super Mario Galaxy 2. It is the first galaxy in World 2 where Mario will find Yoshi. It introduces the Dash Pepper, which transforms Yoshi into Dash Yoshi. This galaxy has a lot of very steep walls that the Mario must steer Yoshi up. Yoshi uses his high-power jumping to clear long distances and high paths.

Silver Stars In Hightail Falls

This secret star is obtained by feeding the Hungry Luma thirty coins. After the Launch Star appears, the player needs to head to the new planet. There, five Kleptoads will be holding five Silver Stars, though there will be other Kleptoads as well. Yoshi can simply eat them, and the ones that are eaten with Silver Stars will drop the stars. The stars can be picked up by other ones though. Simply collect the five Silver Stars and the Power Star will appear.
