I know this may seem obvious to many, but I have had trouble going up into pipes when I've used the Propeller Jump. Does using that move prevent you from going into a pipe, or am I simply not aiming well enough?

    Are you pressing up as you're directly under the pipe? – JohnoBoy May 17 '12 at 21:48
  • Yes. Does it have to be dead center of the pipe? – zr00 May 18 '12 at 2:25
  • No, not really. – Scribblenautical Jul 12 '12 at 0:55
  • If you are jumping, be sure to actually hit the pipe. – Scribblenautical Jul 12 '12 at 0:56

Yes, you can, and there are at least a few pipes that are really only accessible in this way, particularly in single player. Here's a video example of one such pipe (Note: this does contain something of an exploration spoiler):

As I recall, you can simply hold the up button as you propel yourself upwards, so I would suggest trying that. That was typically pretty consistent for me.

  • Thanks for the answer. I didn't watch the video due to the spoilers, but I believe you. – zr00 May 18 '12 at 19:31
