  • Unlock Cataur

    To unlock Cactaur, Unlock Glare Desert NOT GIRA GIRA. To unlock Glare Desert go to the normal difficulty and get to Jr. Street. Once you get there, get 100 coins and 5 purple coins and hope to get 3 mario heads. Once you exceed 800 points within both periods, when you move on to the next stage it should say you unlocked Glare Desert! Once you unlock Glare Desert go to it during Exibition mode. Have the ball with you and dribble around. Soon you will see a little sprout out of the ground that looks like a cactus top. Dribble on top of it a few times and it will pop up and run away. Win the match your in and it should say you unlocked Catctaur! He is very fast and i recommend him!
