DIG IT YOUR WAY!
Description of the level
You must dig in this no matter what, so if you want to beat it three times in a row you will need a shovel, hoe, or pickaxe. And you will need a mount, such as roc, reindeer, or pterodactyl. Grab a digging tool and hop on your mount and activate the switch near the top of the level. Now dig through the pillar of dirt and grab your starite!
Then again, like many other levels involving a switch, you could always get a engineer to flip it for you.
