Bead Screen (World 5-5 or Beginner EX 5) is the 5th Beginner extra level and the 45th level in the game. In Expert Challenge Mode, this is moved to the Beginner extra stages so Partition could be added.


This stage has two platforms, along with small bead-like platforms. Rewind, reverse, play, fast-forward, and pause switches are on the first platform, and the second platform, on the other side of the beads, has the goal. When played, the beads will rotate wildly for several seconds and then form a straight path for  a few seconds, with speed and direction depending on which switch is on. Pressing the pause switch makes the beads stop.

Glitching outside of the skybox


The only goal in this level is a Blue Goal.

Blue GoalEdit

The Blue Goal is rather easy to reach to. Go onto the first platform. Wait for the beads to form a straight line, and then immediately hit the pause switch. Go through the beads and you've reached the goal!


  • It is possible to be launched outside of the skybox by one of the moving platforms.
  • This is the first instance where every style of switch appears in a floor.
  • The level can be beaten without using the pause switch if you are fast enough.
