View Full Version : Easy way for 5 stars on Ristar

03-27-2009, 01:21 PM
Instead of going through all the levels until you get the 5 stars just make sure you don't die before reaching the first one in the first level. After you collect it just die and you will respawn back a little bit in the level. Just go to the same chest and get the star again. Rinse and repeat until you get your 5. Make sure that you are dying and not reloading the game, by dying it also makes the star respawn.

Thank you for the tip it helped a lot. This game is stupid.

doesn't work for me
I get the first star in the level bonus
but after dying there's no way to go there again
Is there a star in a different place ?

I get it, I thought it was the special star instaed is the simple yellow one

All of you make me want to pull my hair out. Ristar was the best game on the Genesis.

Lol I totally sucked at the game and therefore found it very irritating.

I can't even seem to find a yellow star in the first level? Exactly where is it?

Go right (only option anyway) and keep running and climb the first... wall.

Climb the next wall and grab the hanging ropes.

Then you'll see the roots. Whatever it is.

Grab them and run right. After that, climb some more roots, up and keep running right.

Drop down, keep running. You'll see the game want you to go down. Do that, avoid enemies as you continue.

Jump up, and start climbing (to your left)

When you reach the top, you can now see a chest, but its NOT that one.

Instead, run left, and you will find the correct chest, with the stars.

Thank you for this, I dunno if I could've done this without this thread :P

I wish I would of known about this before I got the achievement. This game was rather annoying, and playing through to get the 5 was not a fun experience.

I "cheated" and used this method to get it.
It was the last one I needed to watch the videos - for some reason I really wanted to watch them.

I really don't know why I bought this game, the Sega games I really like I have on cartridge anyway.

11-18-2009, 11:23 PM
