Hilltop Town (or World 4-A) is an alternate level in Sakura Village. This level takes place in a small town filled with lots of Japanese Houses. One of them holds the secret exit. Can you find it?
- Star Coin #1: Once you reach the first Mega Shy Guy, bounce off it's head to get on top of the dojo beside it and reach the Star Coin.
- Star Coin #2: After the second Mega Shy Guy, go into a hidden alcove to the upper left of it. This will lead you to a room with the Star Coin trapped in a Flip Block cage. Simply break through the Flip Blocks to get it.
- Star Coin #3: Right before the first and only Big Pink Shy Guy, go into a hidden alcove under where the Bounce Guy is bouncing. Go down a hidden Warp Pipe, and it'll lead you to the third and final Star Coin.
This level features a secret exit to World C, Sky City. After the first Mega Shy Guy, find the first giant ? Block, and go left to find a hidden alcove to swim under. Just be careful not to drop too low to avoid dying. This can be easier with a Penguin Suit (You can buy a Penguin Suit from Fallmart). Keep swimming, until you find a ?-Switch. Activate it to open the dojo gates, and reveal a hidden door. This door will take you inside the dojo, and you'll find the secret flagpole.
