  • Secret Rainbow Levels

    In order to gain access to the secret rainbow levels, you have to jump on the flagpole when the timer shows the correct time. If done correctly, you'll hear the original NES world-cleared-jingle followed by a firework and a rainbow. When you return to the world map, the entrance to the secret rainbow level will appear at the entry point of each world on the far left. Secret rainbow levels contain no enemies but hundreds of coins and eventually golden flower power-ups.

Secrets

  • Unlimited 1ups

    Same as Mario on the NES. Go to Mushroom World course 1, the place where the first star coin is. Stand on top of the stairs and wait for the koopa troopa. Go down to the second or third step and wait for the koopa to reach you. Jump on it lightly (not hitting jump when you hit it) and then it should bounce off the wall and Mario will keep jumping on it, allowing you to get 3 crowns in a few minutes. Note - If you try this as Golden Mario, the koopa will disappear after 25 hits.
