This achievement really proves that you're not just a clown, but the whole circus..Started laughing like I'd just lost my mind when I got it.

Remapping Control Stick Y- to Circle worked like a charm. Thanks to all for the tips :)

hard but not impossible. And you are glad to mastered this one :)

Tip: if youre relatively new, dont bother with the frame walk. Do the long jumps in the video. Make sure that the ship's sway is about even. good luck

Not the hardest achievement for this game but even with experience this can take you around 10-20 minutes, would not recommend frame walking

Best tip I can give is: turn off hardcore, pratice the double forward jumps, get the right angle of the wall and when you're doing good, go for it without save states. Took less time than I expected.

This one was fun! I didn't realize that it was possible to do cannonless.

Thanks for the vids. I really suck at wall jumping from a long jump so that wall walking was essential.

Omg i did it... My tip is: USE THE KEYBOARD!!!

YEEEEEAAAAAAH! Nailing that jump was so satisfying, if it wasn't for it being 2 in the morning i would be screaming in jubilation!

I found this fairly easy to do using framewalking with keyboard (Up arrow key). It's not very precise, it's a fast rhythm but not mashing. It's definitely not a frame-perfect rhythm.
Just swim up to a stone pillar, do a neutral stroke to get on and start pressing up in a fast rhythm. After a couple attempts you should grab the top of one of the poles and from there you're good. It's probably a lot easier this way.

Framewalking on dpad is pretty easy i did it in maybe 10 tries.

I have an 8bitdo Pro 2 that has a turbo assignment button. Mapped joystick-up to my controller's X-button, turboed that, and frame-walked it in two tries.

After having spent over an hour trying to do this the way in the video, I was able to get this one via framewalking in about 5 minutes.

Framewalking is remapping Analog Up to any other button, like L, and then tapping it repeatedly after pressing A once to swim against the pillar. You have to tap a bit faster than the tempo of the music.

Using the pillar with the 1up, aim directly in the direction of the land. Framewalk up. Once Mario seems to be going into the pillar near the top, press jump and he'll come out the other side. He'll start sliding down. Press jump again and he'll kick his way over to the platform with the star.
