    Welcome to my walkthrough for a the second game of the series for the 
    Gameboy called Super Mario Land 2: 6 Golden Coins. I hope this 
    walkthrough helps out as much as possible. Below is nothing but major 
    spoilers on the game, so if you don't want to be spoiled, please take 
    a detour and hit the Back button now. However if you want to be 
    spoiled or need some help, please scroll down as far as you need to. 
    Consider this as your Spoiler Warning!
    READER'S NOTE: I'll be saying this again later down the walkthrough, but 
    this walkthrough only covers the Secret Goals in the game, and how to 
    find them.

         and submitted it to GameFAQS (09/14/05)
      B: |The Story Of Super Mario Land 2|
         Taken from the instruction manual:
         "DANGER! DANGER! 
         While I (Mario) was away crusading against the mystery alien 
         Tatanga in Sarasa Land, an evil creep took over my castle and put 
         the people of Mario LAnd under his control weith a magic spell. 
         This intruder goes by the name of Wario. He has been jealous of my     
         popularity since we were boys, and has tried to steal my castle 
         many times. It seems he has succeeded this time. Wario has       
         scattered the 6 Golden Coins from my castle all over Mario Land. 
         These Golden Coins are guarded by those under Wario's spell. 
         Without these coins, we can't get back into the castle to deal 
         with Wario.
         We must collect the 6 coins, attack Wario in the castle, and save 
      C: |What Is Super Mario Land 2|
         Super Mario Land 2 is a side scroll adventure game like any early 
         Super Mario game is. The only difference in this game is that 
         there is no Bowser and there is no saving the dingy princess. You 
         gotta knock out Wario who's taken over Mario's Castle. Your main 
         objective is to collect all 6 Golden Coins which will unlock the 
         main door of the castle and to take Wario out. It won't be easy 
         because you have to go through many levels just to accomplish this 
         task. But will Mario be able to do this, only you know that 
      D: |About This Walkthrough|
         Okay this is important. This is a special walkthrough, which is 
         used to help you get through the 7 Secret Goals of the game, 
         only. Keep in mind that the normal goals are not listed and won't 
         be. Also I made a checklist towards the bottom of the walkthrough, 
         so you can mark off which goals you have beaten. I hope this 
         helps out as much as possible. 
      E: |Control Configuration|
         I assume you have a basic idea of all the control combinations, so 
         here is the basic stuff:
         LEFT D-PAD: Moves left
         RIGHT D-PAD: Moves right
         UP D-PAD: Enters upside down pipes
         DOWN D-PAD: Crouches down/enters pipes
         'A' BUTTON: Jumps (press again to float Bunny Mario)
         'B' BUTTON: Runs/Shoots fireballs (as Fire Mario)/Picks up enemies
         START BUTTON: Pauses the game
         SELECT BUTTON: Does nothing
      A: |Before The Walkthrough|
         1. Although these can be found in any order, I decided to list 
         these Secret Goals starting at Tree Zone and going clockwise. 
         2. There is an exception, you must find the Secret Goal for Hippo   
         Stage everytime in order to go to Space Zone.
         3. When you find any new levels due to the Secret Goals, then you 
         leave that area, you must find the Secret Goal of said level each 
         time you want to go to any new level.
         4. Mario Zone doesn't have a Secret Goal, although I think there 
         is one. If you know, email me and you'll get full credit.
      B: |Tree Zone 2|
         TIME: 600
         STUFF REQUIRED: Bunny Mario
         LEADS TO: Tree Zone Secret Area
         Here's what you are gonna do when finding the Secret Goal to this 
         level. First off, you need to be Bunny Mario. Make your way 
         through the first section and head through the pipe. In this 
         second section, keep going avoiding the spikes along the way until 
         you reach the Midway Bell. Now from here, if you're Bunny Mario, 
         you can keep going onwards. If not, you need to go down the bubble 
         pit next to the Midway Bell (which I'll get to in a minute). 
         Follow the path avoiding all obsticles and power-ups. Keep going 
         until you see an area where the is a small gap (that only Small 
         Mario could walk through). Once there, head above that gap onto 
         the highest platform (you should see a Bob-omb Beetle). As Bunny 
         Mario, jump then float over to the nearby platform  on the other 
         side. If need be, jump on the Bob-omb Beetle if you think that 
         will help.
         Now if you aren't Bunny Mario, don't worry I can help on that. 
         Think back to the Midway Bell. At that point sink down into the 
         bubble pit, taking out the Cow Fishies. After that, fall to the 
         bottom and when down there, go through the pipe. When you do, hit 
         the ? Block and a Carrot will appear, so grab it and become Bunny 
         Mario. Now you can either continue in this area, or head back 
         through the pipe. It be easier to head through the pipe, but if 
         you wanna try going through the stage, that's on you. If you head 
         back through the pipe then just follow the instructions I already 
         gave to get to the point I described. Once there, jump and float 
         over to the pipe and go through it.
         Once through the pipe, drop down and follow the short path through 
         the door, and you will found the Secret Goal. By doing this will 
         open up a new path leading to Tree Zone Secret Area.
      C: |Hippo Stage|
         TIME: 700
         STUFF REQUIRED: Bubble Mario
         LEADS TO: Space Zone
         To find this Secret Goal is extremely easy. Actually it's not so 
         much of a "secret goal", but there are two goals nonetheless. What  
         you do is this. You know those hippos who snort out giant bubbles, 
         well get one of those bubbles to become Bubble Mario and make your 
         way to the end carefully avoiding all obsticles in the way or else 
         you'll lose your bubble power. Now once you get to the otherside, 
         you can either float upward or take the door on the bottom. If you 
         take the bottom door, it will take you back to the World Map. If 
         you float upwards and take the upper door, it will take you to 
         Space Zone, which is what you need to do. And that's how you find 
         the "secret" goal of this level.
         Keep in mind, as I said before, you must complete this level as I 
         have described each time in order to get to the Space Zone.
      D: |Space Zone 1|
         TIME: 700
         STUFF REQUIRED: Doesn't matter
         LEADS TO: Space Zone Secret Area
         To get to this Secret Goal, you will have look carefully to find 
         it. Make your way to the Midway Bell, and when you get there go to 
         the right of it a couple of feet, then jump up to reveal a hidden 
         block. Now jump on that block and jump up from it to reveal 
         another block. Jump on that block then jump up from it to reveal 
         another block. Jump on that, then jump (no, not to reveal another 
         block) to the right to a couple blocks. Now here's where it's  
         tricky. You must jump to the right from one block to another. 
         Don't worry about any coins if you miss any. But keep doing this 
         until you reach a platform which has the Secret Goal door. Go 
         through it and a new path will be made leading to Space Zone 
         Secret Area, thus completing this Secret Goal.
      E: |Macro Zone 1|
         TIME: 400
         STUFF REQUIRED: Fire Mario
         LEADS TO: Macro Zone Secret Area
         To find this goal, you'll have to work for it. You need to be Fire 
         Mario for this level, but if you're not, you will be. Make your 
         way through the first section avoiding the ants, and go down the 
         pipe. In this second section, walk forward a bit and you will see 
         a moving platform over some lava. Board it and take it to the 
         platform and jump off. Hit the ? Block for a Super Mushroom to 
         become Super Mario, then go through the small pipe. Now just go 
         through this level normally till you get to the Midway Bell. Once 
         you get to that point, keep going onwards. Along the way you will 
         find Carrots, so get them for extra insurance to help you out. 
         Keep going and you will see a moving platform on the lava, with a 
         staircase above it. Get on the platform, bend down to avoid the 
         spikes and get on the other platform on the other side. Be careful 
         of the Spiny Ant that's on the platform, but take it out. Also you 
         will see 5 ? Blocks above you and some enemies. Use the blocks to 
         take out the enemies. After that, continue on the next moving 
         platform (avoiding the spikes), to an area where there is a ? 
         Block. Take out the Bullet Ant, and hit the ? Block which will 
         have a Fire Flower in it. Get that to become Fire Mario then make 
         your way back to the staircase I mentioned earlier. Once there, 
         climb the stairs and get to where the 5 ? Blocks were. 
         Once there, jump up in 4 spots above there to reveal blocks, and 
         use those to shoot out the Fire Blocks. After that, jump up the 
         pipe. In this third section, just follow it to the end, avoiding 
         obsticles till you reach the door at the other side. Do so and a 
         new path will open up leading to Macro Zone Secret Area, which 
         will complete this Secret Goal.
      F: |Pumpkin Zone 2|
         TIME: 400
         STUFF REQUIRED: Super Mario or Fire Mario
         LEADS TO: Pumpkin Zone Secret Area 1
         To find this secret goal will take a little while to get to. First 
         you need to be either Super Mario or Fire Mario for this mission. 
         If you're Bunny Mario, that's fine for the time being. Make your 
         way through the first section the go down the pipe. Make your way 
         through this second section as well and go up the pipe. In this   
         third section, be careful of the Boo Buddies, and get the Super 
         Mushroom (if need be) and the 1-Up Heart, then make your way out 
         of this section. Now in the fourth section, make your way down the 
         row of blocks by spin jumping on them. Pick up whatever you want 
         and head down to the water, then continue onwards to dry ground. 
         Now at this point it looks like you could take two paths, but for    
         this mission, take the lower path. With that, swim over avoiding 
         the Cheep Cheep to the next platform. Just to the right of that is 
         another swimming area, with a gap in the floor. Swim down there in 
         the gap (don't worry, it's safe), then carefully continue your 
         way, avoiding the spikes, Mouth Pieces and Cheep Cheeps along the 
         way. Once to the other side, you will see a pipe with two blocks 
         on it. Now if you're Super Mario or Fire Mario, spin jump on the 
         blocks to destroy them. If you're Bunny Mario, just touch the 
         Mouth Piece to downgrade to Super Mario, then spin jump on it.
         After that, go down the pipe and in the fifth section, just make 
         your way through this section. There is some more Mouth Pieces and 
         a Crazy Cyclops down here. After all that, head through the door 
         at the other end and a new path will open up leading to Pumpkin 
         Zone Secret Area 1. With that, this Secret Goal is completed.
      G: |Pumpkin Zone 3|
         TIME: 500
         STUFF REQUIRED: Bunny Mario
         LEADS TO: Pumpkin Zone Secret Area 2
         This is another lengthy trek to the Secret Goal, and you need to 
         be Bunny Mario to find it. There's lots of different obsticles 
         here so be careful. Make your way to the Midway Bell. Once there, 
         keep going carefully past some Boo Buddies and spikes. Once back 
         on solid ground, keep going until you reach what may look like a 
         staircase going downward (you will see some Boo Buddies as you 
         make your way down it). Instead of going down it however, from the 
         top step, jump up and float over to the right and you will see a 
         pathway in the wall. Make your way onto that and keep going past 
         the Ghost Goombas and go through the door. Doing so and a new 
         pathway will be opened leading to Pumpkin Zone Secret Area 2, thus 
         completing this Secret Goal.
      H: |Turtle Zone 2|
         TIME: 600
         STUFF REQUIRED: Small Mario
         LEADS TO: Turtle Zone Secret Area
         To find this Secret Goal will be a bit of a challenge, so be 
         careful. For now it doesn't matter what you are, but eventually 
         you will have to be Small Mario to get through this. Now, from the  
         starting point, head right and get into the water. In the water, 
         sink down and swim to the right and then sink down even lower, and 
         keep swimming right. At the very bottom level just walk over until 
         you see a Bullet Bill Cannon and an opening at the top. Avoiding 
         any Bullet Bills that come out and swim upwards in the opening 
         gap. Keep going upwards, watch out for the Spike Squids, and head 
         up to the top. 
         Once at the top, jump out of the water and head left (watch out 
         for the Koopa Troopa) and keep going and you will see a small gap.  
         Become Small Mario and go through the gap and on the other side 
         make your way to the pipe and go up it. In this second section 
         will be difficult as it's completely in water. Slowly make your 
         way to the end of this section, carefully avoiding any and all 
         obsticles along the way. Once at the other end, go through the 
         door and a new path will be made leading you to Turtle Zone Secret 
         Area. Doing all this and you will have completed this Secret Goal.
      I: |Super Mario Land 2 Goals Checklist|
         In order to get a perfect game, you need to find all 32 levels. 
         Now below is a checklist of all those levels. Hidden amongst those 
         levels, 7 of them each have a Secret Goal (which I've already 
         mentioned beforehand). Below however as I said is a list of all 
         the levels you find. To help a little bit, I've compiled 
         a checklist of all the levels in the game. This list can be done 
         in any order you wish to do. Also to make it a bit better I would  
         suggest printing this section off if you want, so you don't mark 
         all over your monitor ^_^. Keep in mind, the number above the file 
         you select (the warp pipe) tells you how many levels have been 
         completed, and if it says 32, then that means you have a completed

      C: |The Disclaimer|
         Super Mario Land 2 was pretty much like Super Mario World, only 3  
         times smaller. It isn't exactly a huge favorite, but I didn't hate 
         it either. It was a decent short game for it's time, but that's 
         about it. It was different, storywise, which also opened the way 
         for a new series to take place (Wario Land), so I guess it had 
         it's moments. Why this walkthrough, well if I'm gonna make Secret 
         Goal FAQs for Super Mario World and Secret Stars FAQ for Super 
         Mario 64, I might as well make this FAQ. I made this walkthrough 
         the best way I can and I hope it helps out in every way possible.  
         Now here comes the important stuff you need to read.
         Ok, I'll make this quick and simple. This walkthrough is my work.
         I've made this walkthrough, describing the game the best possible 
         way I can. You can use whatever info you want, so long as you give 
         me credit and don't alter anything. All you have to do is email me 
         at StarFighters76@hotmail.com if you're gonna do anything with  
         this walkthrough. And to show that I'm not a complete selfish 
         bastard, if you have something you wanna add, email me and I will 
         give you full credit ^_^. This walkthrough, like many others are 
         intended for GameFAQs ONLY. You want it on your site, well you 
         better start emailing me. Failure to comply with this, and I will 
         be mad, among other things.
