Searing Sands (or World 2-8) is the fifth level of Rubble Ruins. It's home to the Angry Sun.

The level is divided into two main parts. In the first half of the level, Mario must deal with an Angry Sun whilst dodging Koopa Troopas, Fire Snakes, and Piranha Plants. Ice Flowers are a very common Powerup in this section.

After reaching the checkpoint, a Warp Pipe will allow access to the second part of the level. This part is an underground cave with many Spinies and Fire Bros.

Star Coins

  • Star Coin #1: Use the springboard at the beginning of the level, and once you see the Star Coin in plain sight, bounce off the springboard. Watch out for the Angry Sun.
  • Star Coin #2: The Yellow Switch is recommended for this Star Coin. Once the Info Block is reached, go to an alcove to the left of the first falling quicksand abyss, then go into the green Warp Pipe. The Star Coin is visible upon entering. Though you have to be careful, since Venus Fire Traps are everywhere.
  • Star Coin #3: Hit the right Brick Block that the second Fire Bro is guarding to reveal a P-Switch. Hit it, and follow the quicksand abyss of blue coins resembling an arrow. Upon entering, do a running jump to get the Star Coin.
