21-09-06, 21:53
I just started to play Mario Kart DS, Single Player Missions, Im on level 1.

I have completed levels 1-1 to 1-7 with at least 2 stars on each But I'm stuck on level 1-8 'Perform 4 Power-slide turbo boosts in 1 Lap'

How?...... I cant even do one.... all I can do is jump then slide but that dont count.... How do I do it.

I dont have the instructions as I bought the game 2nd hand without Instructions :o

Mission 1-8

Objective: Perform 4 power-slide turbo boosts in 1 lap!

Strategy: As Mario driving on Mario Circuit, you have to do 4 power slides in
a single lap around the course. If you don't know already, you can
power slide by hopping with R while holding Left/Right and
accelerating. When you start to slide, alternate between Left and
Right to see blue, then red sparks. When they are red, release for
a boost. Do this 4 times, preferably around each of the turns, to
fulfill this mission's criteria.

If you think that one was hard, wait til you get to the Mission where you gotta do 14 Powerslide Boosts!

BTW, if you get at least 1 Star Rank (better than A, highest is 3) on all missions, you can unlock Level 7.

I was stuck with that for ages, but once you get the hang of it, its quite easy :tmb:

I have mastered the power-slide turbo boots (bit of a mouthful :D ) now.

I am stuck on level 3-6 now 'Hit Monty Moles with shells 5 times'

The most I have managed to hit is 2, but I will persevere
