Codes and Hints:

99 Lives:

Clear the Hippopotamus Zone and the Space Zone. Return to the 
Hippopotamus Zone, run into the water, and then to the left. Grab the 
prize worth 50 coins. Do this over and over until you've grabbed 999 
coins, then play the Bonus Game. Repeat this procedure until you have 99 

Beat Bonus Gme:

To get 3 extra lives every time on the bonus game, just wait until a 
heart is going into the left-hand opening, and press the button to drop 
the claw. The claw will automaticlly grab the heart when it comes back 
out the other side

Bonus Level:

After ringing the Midpoint Bell in the first stage of the Space Zone, 
jump up to find the hidden block located in front of the ringed planet. 
Continue working your way up-you will find more hidden blocks and you 
will get to the Secret Exit high above the normal goal.

Easier Game:

For an easier game, press SELECT at the pipe screen.

Hippo Level:

When you see the hippo, make sure the bubble comes out. Then go back to 
where you started and run to the hippo again. When you see the bubble 
come out (still running), jump in it and don't let go of the A button. 
You should be at the end in about 40 seconds.

Play the Demos:

At the title screen you can enter any of the following codes to play the 
demos. When a demo begins you will be able to control Mario.

Demo   Code
1      Up + Select
2      Up + A + Select
3      Up + B + Select
4      Up + A + B + Select</pre>

Note: None of these codes work for the million version seller.

Return to the Map:

To return to the map without dying, press START, then press SELECT.

Secret Exits:

There are at least seven secret exits in this game.

Space Zone level 1:

Touch the midway bell and move right until you get to a wall. Jump. Get 
on the other one. Keep going up then move right jumping until you get to 
a secret door with a star on top of it.

Tree Zone level 2:

You have to have bunny ears. Go to the end but don't go through the 
exit. Instead go left past the pipe then up the goo like thingy. Go all 
the way up and kill the bad guy. Then fly up and right. Go through the 
pipe and to the door with a star on top of it.

Macro Zone level 1:

Its kinda a shortcut to the boss. You need a fire flower. When you are 
on the platform where a ant with a missile throwing gun kill it. There 
is like somthing under it like a pipe that is facing up pand takes you 
down. Go up. But where the ant was. Somewhere in that platform are 4 
hidden blocks.  Look for them. When you find them go on top of them and 
shoot the blocks and go up a pipe. Then look for the door with a star on 
top of it.

Pumpkin Zone level 2:

You need to have a mushroom. Go to where there is water under those 
cyclop ghosts when you get to a hole go down and across the bad guys. 
Then break the blocks and go down a pipe. Then go to a door with a star 
above it 

Pumpkin Zone level 3:

You need to have bunny ears. After you pass where the blocks that go 
invisible go to a place where you down. Don't go down lnstead go flying 
up to the right pass through the bad guy and to the door witha star 
above it.

Turtle Zone:

Go down then up where its dry and let the turtle make you small. Enter 
the hole on the left and up the pipe. Go right through the bad guys and 
enter the door with a star above it.

Secret Life:

In the Hippopotamus Zone, get in a bubble and go to the beginning of the 
level and float up. You will see a ? box. Inside is an extra life!

See the Whole Map:

In the map screen, press and hold B until the entire map is revealed.

Tree Zone Secret Exit:

At the second level of Tree Zone, go up to the place where there is a 
long way down to the normal exit, and there are the green goo you could 
float on. Instead of going down to the normal exit, get the carrot and 
fly up and forward. You will see a passageway near the top. Go into that 
to find the secret exit.

Underground Bug:

Go to any long pipe going down in a level you've already passed, and go 
down it.  While still in the pipe, pause and then press SELECT.  Then, 
play any level you want. In most of the levels, Mario will fall through 
the ground and end up in a strange jumble.  Don't hit any ? blocks or 
grab any coins there, or the game will freeze. Very strange and funny!

Reviewied By: MMeevasin <Mmeeva@hotmail.com 
Score: 8/10

Mario, Nintendo's mascot and also one of the most famous videogame 
character ever returns to the Game Boy in his sequel Super Mario Land 2: 
6 Golden Coins. This game retains the classic Mario style, and is sure 
to appeal to any platform gamer, as well as any Mario fan as well.

Gameplay- The gameplay is quite excellent. It retains the clssic Mario 
style, and makes the game quite fun to play. The game itself is not at 
all very challenging, but as long as games have great gameplay, it makes 
the game enjoyable. And this game has great gameplay that will have you 
playing until the end of the game.

Story- The story of the game is a little weird, but true to the Mario 
style games. Mario's rival Wario has taken over Mario's castle while he 
was on some adventure. Mario must now search for 6 Golden Coins which 
will let him gain access back to his castle and reclaim it from his 
rival Wario.

Audio- The sounds on this game is nice, although not very great. The 
tunes are not very recognizable, and after playing through the game I 
tend to forget what the sounds and music sounded like. A little typical 
of Game Boy games, but they could have done much better on this game in 
my opinion.

Video- The graphics on this are very well done. Mario is easily 
recognizable, and many of the enemies are also nicely well done. One of 
the weirdest things about this game is Mario's powerups. When I first 
found the Rabbit Ears powerup, I was nearly in disbelief when I saw it. 
Although it was probably the most useful item in the game.

Replayability- The replay value on this game is about medium. I wasn't 
too tempted too play the game again. Only at times did I actually pick 
up the game and started playing again. If you are a fan of platform 
games this game may be a little too easy for you.

Over all it is a great game. The replay value is not all too great, but 
if you are a fan of the Mario games, you should go out and find this 
game. This is a good game to add to any Game Boy collection however, so 
if you can still find this game, consider picking one up.

These come with different numbers on them or none at all. The number on

7) F.A.Q.

Question #1 - "How many worlds are there?"

Answer: Six.


Question #2 - "Where do i use the coins?"

Answer: From the start of the overworld map, go up, then right into the 
large cave. Here you can play bonus games depending on the amount of 
coins you have.


Question #3 - "Help! Whenever i die i lose all my coins i've collected! 
How do i save?"

Answer: That's kinda the whole point of the game...you can't!

8) Bosses

There are a total of 7 bosses in the game, including wario. Here is a 
guide to them all, and how to beat them. If you have any additions 
contact me...

Boss Name <Zone>
Difficulty: 1-10

#1 - Three Little Pigs <Mario Zone>
Difficulty: 5
Description: 3 different pigs, all the same size. All have special 

This is one of the easiest bosses. First you will fight the "straw" pig, 
who is easy to beat. Just jump on him while he's rolling around and kill 
him. Then the second pig will come out, a bit bouncier than the other. 
Wait until the right time, then jump on him again, to defeat him. 
Finally, you'll meet the third pig who just may be on "speed". Defeat 
him the same way, avoiding his out of control body.

#2 - Hagatha the Witch <Pumpkin Zone>
Difficulty: 1
Description: Your average witch: Broom, Cackle, and black clothes\hat 

Almost too easy. Simply jump on her as she appears out of the different 
cauldrons. Three hits and she's down for the count! 'Nuff said.

9) Misc.


"While I 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 with a magic spell. This intruder goes by the name of 
Wario. He has been jealous of my popularity ever 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 into the castle to deal with Wario. We 
must collect the 6 coins, attack Wario in the castle, and save
