Powerups in Mario Galaxy

You might have already heard about Mario turning into a bee and a ghost, but there's a couple of other original powerups available in Super Mario Galaxy. Here's the full list:

  1. Spring - Mario coils himself in a spring, enabling him to bounce around and up to higher levels.
  2. Ice - Mario freezes water as he runs over it.
  3. Fire Flower - Mario throws destructive fireballs.
  4. Star - Mario has invincibility for a while.
  5. Bee - As a bee Mario can fly a little.
  6. Boo - Mario can travel through closed windows.

If you'd like to see them in action, here's a video. The powerups are about 1 minute in.

There is some pretty good gameplay in that video. It also relieves me a little because I thought that all the courses would be space courses with tiny planets.

Holy crap. I really underestimated this game, it seems. I guess I was still mad about Sunshine and it being such a BS game. Anyway, I can't wait for Galaxy now and this trailer was the own.

Me too, Nintendoof. This'll calm my frustration from Brawl for a while. Heh, the Wiimote in the video had a Wii Jacket.

In the fireflower clip, those crates look exactly like the ones in Smash Bros.

In three minutes of video, there were so many styles of gameplay; a little Mario Kart, a little Mario Party, and classic platforming. A definite "must buy".

Reminds me of Banjo-kazooie when you can turn into a bee in click clock wood. Damn you microsoft. Why did you buy them! 347 million bucks wasn't enough.

The ice power-up sounds amazing, maybe Mario is playing the Jesus game?

I do. You need to have unlocked the floating island at the comet observatory. Go in the dome on the island. Choose second star. Talk to the luma. He will let you use a red star that lets you fly. Use it to collect 100 purple coins. After you've gotten them all you can use it anywhere in the observatory.
