Spike's Tumbling Desert is the first level of Layer-Cake Desert in the game New Super Luigi U.


The player begins the level near a ? Block. A pit of quicksand is then encountered, along with Spikes on rising and falling Brick Blocks. Two Spikes on the ground are then encountered, along with one on top of a ? Block. A Red Ring is then found. As the ground slopes upwards, three Spikes on Brick Blocks appear. At the bottom of a steep slope, a P Switch can be found. Two Spikes are encountered, along with the Goal Pole.

Star Coins

  • Star Coin 1: Jump on the first Spike and get the Star Coin while also avoid the spike balls they hold up.
  • Star Coin 2: The wall to the left of the fifth Spike has a secret passageway leading to the second Star Coin.
  • Star Coin 3: Activate the P Switch that cause the coins to transform into Brick Blocks. After that, jump on the second to last Spike and get the Star Coin.

Hidden Luigi image

Underground from the hill on the left of the P Switch, there's a modern Luigi picture in fossil form since it's underground doing a pose.
