This is how to beat super mario 64 with only 16 stars.
PLEASE either rate or comment on my instructables!
First start a new game and get eight stars if your choice. Now go and beat mean ol' bowser.
Step 1: More Stars!
Now go and get another 7 stars ( I got them from Lethal lava land and sand land).
Heres where things get tricky. grab the bunn in the basement but don't take the star. Pick him up and go to the door into the basement.
Now go to the door and drop the bunny into the front of the door. Mario should apear inside the door. get down on his knees and turn towards the bunny. Now put it down again.
You should be inside the room with bowsers door in it , with the bunny! Now do the same thing on bowsers door. Here's the link to a youtube video of it
Step 2: Bowser 2
Now you should be in bowers second room. Go beat bowsers sub level and jump into bowsers room.
Now go through it as you normally would. You have 2 keys! unfortunatley you're stuck in this room. no problem! Go to the sub level and exit level. You're out!
Step 3: This Is the Hardest Part
What you need to do is a backwords long jump. first do a long jump but hold Z and the stick backwords. As soon as you land press A again. repeat this up the steps like in the video.
Step 4: Endless Stairs
DO the same thing on the endless stairs, but to the side.
Like in this video
Beat bowser and... You're done!
Thanks for watching!
