Collecting this powerup isn't hard per-se...

...but I can't figure out how to do that and jump around these little bastards right after.

I hate this part, and with good reason; it all comes down to timing.

Essentially, you need to spam short bursts of Spacebar (small hops, not floaters or long glides) because once you get past the three little "goombas" (I really don't know what they're called), you'll reach a set of stairs which requires even more spacebar mashing.

Small hops

To get that extra, I advise using two short hops (after you come out of slide). After that, it really is timing though. I've tried to do this, and it is ridiculously hard and crazy (it's why I started using checkpoints)

Good luck!

What's wrong with this answer? – waifu Feb 27 '13 at 15:35
It's more about what happens after I pick up the power-up correctly, when the question is about how to pick up the power-up correctly and skip over the three "goombas". – badp Feb 27 '13 at 17:54
@badp No, actually, you need to "spam short bursts of Spacebar" to get that powerup. I added a picture to show that better. – BlaXpirit Jan 23 '14 at 10:42
@badp Y U NO ACCEPT – BlaXpirit Feb 1 '14 at 22:55
