Morton's Lava-Block Castle, or Layer-Cake Desert-Castle Icon.pngCastle is the Castle level of Layer-Cake Desert in New Super Luigi U. It is unlocked by completing Spinning Sandstones and its own completion unlocks Huckit Beach Resort and Broozers and Barrels.


The player begins the level near a moving platform with a Red Ring above it. A group of smaller moving platforms are found lowering into the lava. More moving platforms are seen, along with a group of Brick Blocks. A moving platform with a Dry Bones on it appears, followed by one contains multiple Dry Bones. More moving platforms are encountered, along with a stationary platform. Several smaller platforms are found rising out of the lava. At the end of the area, the boss door is seen on a platform. Morton serves as the castle's boss, and the fight is identical to the one in New Super Mario Bros. U.

Star Coins

  • Star Coin 1: After following the eight red coins, hit the brick blocks surrounding the Star Coin to break them and get the coin.
  • Star Coin 2: After passing the group of Dry Bones, go on the platform covering the Star Coin. Wait for it to lower to get the Star Coin and jump right after to avoid death.
  • Star Coin 3: Wait by the sign with a right arrow until seeing small platforms. Run on those platforms and jump to the Star Coin above the door leading to the boss.
