Combination is the 11th Expert stage in Super Monkey Ball 2, and the 19th Expert stage in Super Monkey Ball Deluxe. It also appears as the 129th Ultimate stage with continues, and the 169th without.

In Story Mode, it appears as World 6-1 in both Super Monkey Ball 2 and Deluxe, and is given an 8 out of 10 difficulty rating.

Description

This stage consists of switches, wormholes, and revolving platforms. The goal is on one of the square platforms that moves back and forth between the 9:00 o'clock and 12:00 o'clock positions with respect to the starting platform.

Goal Tutorial

The square platforms revolve 90 degrees clockwise and counterclockwise in a checkerboard fashion around the center of the grid. The ones that have finished revolving clockwise will get lowered and begin to revolve counterclockwise. Similarly, the ones that have finished revolving counterclockwise will get raised and begin to revolve clockwise, and the cycle continues.

Main Strategy

When you start the stage, you land directly on top of a fast-forward switch. Hold up to go into the wormhole. Behind the upper wormhole is a small platform with a play switch. Turn around behind the wormhole. Land on the switch, and then land back onto the starting platform. You can collect the banana bunch that is behind the lower wormhole. Go back into the wormhole, and head straight for the closest square platform in the 6:00 o'clock position after they all stop revolving. Make sure you get onto the one that is heading upward if you can see the goal directly ahead in the distance. Stay on the platform by following it clockwise until it stops at the 9:00 o'clock position. As the platform lowers and levels with the goal, roll into it.

Fast Strategy

For an even greater challenge that will give you a better time, roll into the wormhole as soon as you start the stage, and wait in front of the rising square platform that is second to the right of the 6:00 o'clock rising platform. Once the platform is about to be level with the one on which you're waiting, go onto it, and head diagonally in the northwest direction, making sure you are rolling across the platforms that are going up; and enter into the goal. You have to try to enter into the goal without fumbling because, otherwise, the platforms will begin to revolve quickly, and you'll fall out.
