The secret to SWAYing...

Its called the Sway Throw. Use any character spin him around untill he gets some speed; and let go. Press both arms and he'll cling when ever he reaches a platform. Guaranteed to work after some practice and youll blow through all the levels in an instant.

Ok this would work....but wouldn't get you enough stars in some levels. And what about levels with obstacles all throughout the level....

actually thats the beauty of the technique you literally go OVER the obstacles and tend to land over the check point. About the stars, what I do is: I get to the check point and throw myself all over the map to collect as much stars as possible and then kill myself. Its a good way to reduce time in the level.

I found out this technique too and that's why I can cruise through all the levels. I don't care about stars, but I do care about unlocking characters, so in those levels I would be more careful. Otherwise, I'd jump whenever possible.

I call it the 'Sapus Tongue' technique.
