It’s always great to see a game bring up previous levels in order to add some cohesion to the game and truthfully that’s how I felt when I landed on Alivel Mall (Staff Side).
Alivel Mall was a very cute stage that I really enjoyed playing on Twitch because I felt Smart(er than a Fifth Grader) when I was able to uncover all of the hidden elements to it and successfully do a run.
I’m happy to say that Alivel Mall (Staff Side) is equally as cute, though it does come with a bit more difficulty than Alivel Mall itself.
Quite frankly, Alivel Mall (Staff Side) has many more tasks to complete and while pretty straight forward, there are a number of steps that players can mess up and ultimately gain no Mission completion.
As someone who attempts to get all of his Missions completed in the first go, my heart was racing throughout this level. I must say, that’s on me as no one should feel the pressure to complete all the Missions in one go and I really hope you don’t feel the same way in your first run.
The following guide will take you through everything you need to know about the Alivel Mall (Staff Side) including how to complete all the Missions, get a Blueprint and find all the hidden Capsules.

1:55 Hole #1
3:02 Capsule #1
3:15 Hole #2
3:30 Waddle Dee #1
4:03 Capsule #2
4:41 Hole #3
5:10 Waddle Dee #2
6:05 Defeat Wild Bonkers with the Cutter ability
6:50 Waddle Dee #3
7:00 Wild Hammer Blueprint
7:35 Ice Cream #2
8:17 Capsule #3
8:31 Waddle Dee #4
8:56 Hole #4
9:25 Hole #5
9:50 Waddle Dee #5
10:18 Capsule #4
10:31 Ice Cream #3
10:50 Hole #6
As is with all other stages in the game, players will receive 3 Waddle Dees simply for completing the level! Quite straight forward and may be the only option for many players in this level as some of the other Missions can feel quite tricky.
SAVE THE HIDDEN WADDLE DEES
WADDLE DEE #1
The first Waddle Dee requires players to break down the bomb box in order to reveal a circle for the Ring Mouth ability.
Players must then head back to the location they were just in to fit through the circular hole to rescue the Waddle Dee.
WADDLE DEE #2
The second Waddle Dee requires players to become the Vending Machine in order to fit through a rectangular located shortly before.
To find the Vending Machine players must cut down the Yellow and Black rope located to the right of where the rectangular hole is.
Players will then be able to teleport back with the Vending Machine.
WADDLE DEE #3
Waddle Dee 3 is obtained after fighting the Wild Bonkers mob inside of a chest behind the gate.
Completing this fight will also provide players with the Wild Hammer Blueprint! Enjoy! 😀
WADDLE DEE #4
Waddle Dee 4 is located under a dirt pile shortly after the area with the clock.
Players will have to knock the clock off the wall by breaking the Cardboard Boxes to the right of it and using a Hammer on the wooden button.
Use the Ring Mouth Mouthful Mode to blow away the debris that is covering the red chest.
WADDLE DEE #5
The fifth Waddle Dee takes a few steps to complete.
Firstly, players must keep the Ring Mouth Mouthful Mode until they reach the spinning X’s. Take the first X to the right hand side where you can slip into the circular hole to reveal a water pipe.
Now become the Water-Balloon Mouth Mouthful Mode and take the X back to where you started so you’re heavy enough to smash into the ground.
The last Waddle Dee is located here.
TASTE TEST 3 KINDS OF ICE-CREAM
This part feels a bit tricky and by the middle of the level I was panicked that I wasn’t going to find all the Ice Creams I needed as they really have you on the edge of the seat until the very end.
I will say, it is pretty easy to find all these Ice Cream cones but some are trickier than others to locate.
The first Ice-Cream cone is located on the table next to a large Ice-Cream set piece that is actually a Cone for Mouthful Mode.
To the right of the clock are a bunch of cardboard boxes.
Players must destroy these boxes to reveal a hidden room that has an Ice-Cream sitting on the table.
Grab it before you smash down the clock.
The final Ice-Cream is hidden behind 4 Cardboard Boxes where players pick up the Cone Mouth ability.
DEFEAT WILD BONKERS WITH THE CUTTER ABILITY
This one is quite simple. Before players enter the door with the single red star above it, where the third Waddle Dee is located, players must have access to the Cutter ability to take down the Wild Bonker.
Players should note that they can use any form of the Cutter ability, so if you have an upgraded version you are still fine.
I strongly recommend always using upgraded versions as players are never gatekept from using them.
FIT THROUGH ALL HOLES USING MOUTHFUL MODES
This part is long Winded and takes some time to explain and get used to.
During Alivel Mall (Staff Side) there are a good amount of holes in the wall that will require players to take on Mouthful Modes to fit in correctly.
If you see a hole in the shape that you currently are not there’s a chance there’s a Mouthful Mode ability you do not see immediately.
Please let me know if you need screenshots and I will provide them, but all the locations are timestamped in the video above for assistance.
When players enter the area that has a bomb box to the right, players must head a bit to the left to locate 5 cardboard boxes.
Knock these cardboard boxes down in order to reveal the first capsules.
The second Capsule is located in a room behind the Vending Machine, players will have to destroy a good amount of Carboard Boxes in order to reveal it.
When players have access to Ring Mouth the first time using Mouthful Mode, from the clock, they will have to blow away some debris in order to reveal the third Capsule.
On the spinning platforms just before the Ice Cream Shoppe players will need to grab a capsule.
Players can either stand still on the platform and hover as soon as they get near this capsule or can strategically plan where to run to in order to get it faster.
