*******************
Section 2: Controls
*******************


---Single Button Controls---

A Button: Pressing 'A' makes Mario jump.  If you press and hold 'A' for about a 
second, Mario will jump the max height. This button also confirms menu 
selections.  In the water, pressing 'A' will make Mario swim.

B Button: The 'B' button has many functions.  Ironically if you just tap 'B' as 
normal or super Mario, nothing will happen.  If you have a cape, pressing 'B' 
will cause Mario to swing the cape.  Likewise, if you have a Fire Flower, 'B' 
will make Mario throw a fireball.  'B' also lets you grab shells, flip through 
grates, makes Yoshi lick, and cancels menu selections.

Start Button: The main use of the Start button is to pause the game, but you 
can also use it to confirm menu selections.

Select Button: On the map, the Select Button brings up the level completion 
checklist.  During game play, pressing the Select button causes the power up 
(if any) in reserve to drop down.

Up button (on the Directional Pad):  Pressing up during game play will make 
Mario look straight up and cause the screen to pan upwards.  Use the up button 
to enter pipes, gates, and to climb fences.

Down Button (on the Directional Pad): Use the Down button to enter pipes below 
you, dodge enemies, or to pan down.  If you press Down on a steep slope, you 
will slide down.

Left Button (on the Directional Pad): Makes Mario move left and enters some 
pipes.

Right Button (on the Directional Pad): Makes Mario move right and enters some 
pipes.

L (Shoulder) Button: Press this button to pan left or right (depending where 
you face).

R (Shoulder) Button: Press this button to spin jump or to get off Yoshi. 


---Multi Button Controls---

Run: Simply hold the 'B' button as you press Left or Right.  Running is very 
useful in many levels.

Carry an Item: Walk near an item while pressing 'B', and you will grab the 
item.  This works for 'P' switches, shells, and other small objects.  Holding 
any item will make you swim better in the water.

Climb/Jump off a Vine or fence: To get on a green vine or a fence, press Up 
when you are right if front of the vine.  To get off the vine, simply press 
'A'.

Yoshi sacrifice Jump: Like the name suggests, you can only perform this move if 
you are riding a Yoshi.  With Yoshi, jump, and immediately press 'R' when you 
are in the middle of your jump.  Now you will jump very high, but you will lose 
your Yoshi.  This move should be used rarely and only if you are about to fall 
down a gap.

Fly: To fly, you must have caped Mario or Luigi, and you cannot be riding a 
Yoshi.  Now get a good running start and run forward until you see your Brother 
throw out his hands.  Now press 'A' and continue holding 'B' and you will fly 
high in the sky.  To continue flying at level height, press Left every second 
while holding the 'B' button.  Flying is much easier with Luigi.  If you want 
to shake the ground when you land, just hold the Right (or Left) button while 
pressing 'B'.





***************************
Section 3: Items & Powerups
***************************


This section will describe all of the blocks, powerups and other objects found 
around this game.



Blocks/Bricks
-------------

Yellow Brick:

This is your standard brick.  You can easily recognize them because they look 
like a yellow block with two black dots on it (eyes).  Most of the yellow 
bricks are empty (they contain nothing), which means they spin if you hit them 
and they break if you spin jump on them.  Others contain coins, powerups, extra 
lives and many more.  Yellow bricks turn into Brown ones when they are hit and 
not empty.


Brown Brick:

This is another common brick that has angry looking eyes unlike the yellow 
ones.  These bricks are obviously brown, and are indestructible (they also have 
no coins/items).  Brown bricks are mostly placed in the level to help (or 
possibly prevent) you to access different parts of the level.  These bricks 
turn into coins when you hit a 'P' switch.


Blue Bricks:

Blue Bricks look just like yellow ones except they are blue instead of yellow 
(obviously).  These are also very useful as you can pick them up (they will 
start flashing) and use them to hit blocks in hard to reach places, kill 
enemies, and swim quickly in water.  Blue bricks are usually found in clusters 
and are not common to find.  Note that these bricks disappear in a short time 
after picking them up, so be quick!


Icy Bricks:

This brick is seen in only the icy levels and act just like Brown bricks.  The 
only difference is that they are slippery and they don't turn into coins when 
you hit a 'P' switch.


Prize Block ('?' Block):

Prize blocks are the same size of bricks, except they have a picture of a '?' 
on them that moves on the block.  These blocks are never empty and may contain 
coins, a stream of coins, or powerups.  These blocks rarely contain green vines 
or extra live mushrooms.


Note Block:

Note blocks are unique from other ones because they are white and very bouncy.  
This means that you can jump on them to jump up higher than usual.  Note blocks 
are usually used to help you reach higher ledges, but they also might contain 
powerups (never coins or vines).  These blocks are also indestructible but do 
not turn into brown bricks after they are hit.


Green Star Block:

This is the rarest of all blocks.  Only hit these blocks when you have thirty 
coins, because you will be awarded with an extra life.  If you have less than 
30 coins, they will only give you a measly coin.


Stone/Wooden/Other Blocks:

These blocks are found in castles, ghost houses and in other areas.  They 
compose the walls in the levels and are indestructible like the brown bricks.


Shifting Blocks:

Shifting blocks act like '?' ones with powerups, except they change every 
second (they shift from Mushroom to Fire Flower to Cape to Star).  Quickly hit 
them when you get your desired powerup, and grab it before it bounces away.




Powerups
--------

Mushroom:

Shrooms are your standard powerup.  Once Mario/Luigi touches them, they will 
grow twice their size (which gives you one piece of extra health) and will be 
able to break through yellow blocks easily.  If you already have a mushroom, 
your new one will go into your reserve box.


Fire Flower:

Fire flowers will only appear if you have a mushroom and from certain '?' 
blocks.  Once you get one, you get a third piece of health and will be able to 
throw fire balls.  Fire balls are useful for killing certain enemies and even 
work in water.  Mario's fireballs bounce lower than Luigi's.


Cape:

Capes are more useful than Fire Flowers, as they give you the ability to fly.  
They also let you whip enemies to kill them, spin yellow bricks near you, and 
even hover slowly to the ground.


Star:

Stars are the best powerup in the game, but they only last for a few seconds.  
Once you collect a star, you get impervious to all attacks and can kill enemies 
by running into them.  If you run into enough enemies within the Star's 
duration, you can get a crapload of points and even extra lives.




Miscellaneous
-------------

Key:

Keys are used for getting to secret exits in many levels.  Simply pick them up 
(you can use Yoshi), and put it in a keyhole nearby to get through the secret 
exit.


Green Trampoline:

These objects are very useful for getting to hard to reach places and possibly 
to secret exits.  Like the Key, you can pick them up or hold it in Yoshi's 
mouth.  To jump off of a trampoline successfully, press 'A' when the Trampoline 
is fully pressed down.






*********************
Section 4: Characters
*********************


This section will describe Mario, Luigi and other allies that you will be using 
throughout the game.



Mario:

The star of the game is back for another wacky adventure!  You will start out 
as Mario (you can switch to Luigi if you like though) and will be playing 
through many levels using him.  Mario is different from Luigi because he is 
faster, throws fireballs that bounce lower, and is harder to control while 
flying compared to him.  Use Mario when you are playing levels with few 
obstacles and more enemies and some castles.


Luigi:

Luigi is also in for another adventure helping his pal, Mario.  He is different 
from Mario because he jumps higher (though harder to control), throws higher 
fireballs, and flies better than Mario.  Luigi should be mainly used in shorter 
levels with lots of jumping and with cliffs and gaps (sky levels).


Yoshi:

Yoshi actually started out as a free dinosaur playing with his friends.  After 
the princess was kidnapped, Bowser trapped all of the Yoshis into different 
blocks.  When you first free Yoshi, you will get a message from him thanking 
you for freeing him, and he will be willing to help you on your quest.  Jump on 
Yoshi's back to ride him like a horse.  With Yoshi, you can lick, eat enemies 
and even step on spiky terrain.  You can fly with Yoshi, but you will fall down 
after reaching the highest point after takeoff.  If you get hit by Yoshi, you 
will jump off of him, and he will be running back and forth.  If this happens, 
quickly jump on him again before he falls in a gap.

There are four colors of Yoshi:


Green:  Your standard Yoshi with no shell bonus.

Red:  Red Yoshi is only available after you unlock him in Star World.  When 
this Yoshi eats any shell, he will spit out fire if you press 'B' again.

Yellow: Like the red one, the Yellow Yoshi is also only available after you 
free him in Star World.  With any shell in his mouth, Yellow Yoshi can stomp 
the ground causing the enemies around you to die or get stunned.

Blue: Blue Yoshis are my personal favorite on because he can fly for a short 
period of time with any shell in his mouth!  The flying is a lot more 
controlled if you have a Cape (you won't be erratically bouncing up and down).  
Sadly, this Yoshi is also available in Star World.






**********************
Section 5: Walkthrough
**********************


Here is the Walkthrough!  You may notice that the first few levels have more 
detail than the other ones.  The reason for this was that I tried to explain 
every new concept as I originally planned not to write the other sections.

This is the format of every level in the walkthrough:


+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
Name of level
-------------
Difficulty/10 | Recommended Brother (Mario or Luigi) | Number of Dragon Coins | 
Time of level (200, 300, 400, or Infinity)
Enemies: Listed here are all the enemies found in this level in alphabetical 
order.  Bosses are always listed last.


Here, I will explain a little bit about the level and how it compares to other 
levels in this world.  I may also recommend (or require) you to have specific 
powerups before you enter this level.

This will be the actual walkthrough for this level.  If you see three 
consecutive stars (***) that means that if you want to use the secret exit, 
stop reading here and go directly to the 'Secret Exit' section of that level.  
In a few levels, there are alternative exits (usually associated with a pair of 
wings).  These exits are depicted with three ampersands (&&&).

Secret Exit: 

If there is a secret exit it will be listed here. (***)

Alternative Exit:

If there is an alternative exit, it will be listed here. (&&&)


GO TO: The next level
+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++


Well, here we go!




=======================
World 1: Yoshi's Island
=======================


Yoshi's House (YH)
------------------
Difficulty: 0/10 | Brother: Luigi | Dragon Coins: 0 | Time: Infinity
Enemies: None


This is not really a level, but I put it here as a reference.

If you do not have a Yoshi, there is nothing you really can do but read the 
help block which says that Yoshi is out playing with his friends.  If you come 
here with a Yoshi, you can eat all ten apples on the tree to get a mushroom.

GO TO: Yoshi's Island 1




Yoshi's Island 1 (YI1)
----------------------
Difficulty: 1.5/10 | Brother: Mario | Dragon Coins: 5 | Time: 300
Enemies: Banzai Bill, Chargin' Chuck, Jumping Piranha, Koopa, Rex


This level is not that hard, but people new to this game might have some 
trouble dodging all of the Banzai Bills.

You will start on the ground next to a slanting cliff with a shelless Koopa 
sliding down to attack you.  Jump on it and you will see the first Dragon Coin 
near the top of the cliff.  Grab the coin and move forward making sure you 
dodge the Banzai Bill trying to ram you.  A lone Rex will walk from the right, 
so spin jump to kill it.  Continue walking until you see a flying '?' block.  
Hit it, grab the mushroom that pops out, then kill the two incoming Rex.  Run 
up the slanted green pipe to land on a cliff.  Keep running as you jump past 
the two Rex under the three slanted cliffs.  Jump on the third cliff to collect 
the second Dragon Coin near the top.  Run across the first bush to reveal a 
hidden mushroom.  Kill the Rex, but watch out for the Jumping Piranha in the 
yellow pipe.  Carefully jump across the pipe but ignore the help block.  You 
will see a blue pipe that is blocked by stone bricks and yellow bricks.  If you 
are super, spin jump to break the bricks below you, and enter the pipe.  You 
will find yourself in a secret chamber.  A mushroom is hiding out under three 
yellow bricks, so break them and grab it. (You really don't need it, but get it 
for the 1000 points)  Grab the six coins above you and get the third Dragon 
Coin under three more yellow bricks.  Now run into the green pipe and you will 
be blasted out of the chamber.  Don't touch any button while flying and you 
will hit the checkpoint before you land.

---Check Point---

You will see a yellow '!' block outline, because you cannot do anything to it, 
ignore it for now.  Keep walking forward and kill the three Rex trying to halt 
you.  Jump up the series of cliffs until you reach the top.  Grab the fourth 
Dragon Coin located there and slide down the cliff killing the Rex at the 
bottom.  Keep walking forward, but beware of the Banzai Bill trying to hit you. 
Ignore the help block, pick up the shell and throw it up at the yellow brick in 
the sky.  If you hit the brick, an extra life should come out and start to 
glide across the line of clouds.  Follow the extra life making sure you dodge 
the Banzai Bill, and grab it when it falls down.  Continue on your way, killing 
the two Rex that walk by, until you reach four bricks in a diamond shape.  Hit 
the '?' block (The uppermost one), and grab the Fire Flower that comes out.  
Kill the two Rex that walk by and hop on the short cliff to avoid the Banzai 
Bill.  Hop on the green pipe but don't get hit by the Jumping Piranha.  Grab 
the last Dragon Coin, kill the Rex, and jump down from the cliff.  A Chargin' 
Chuck will be snapping at the air.  Keep jumping on it until it dies, and pass 
through the End Marker to beat the level.  Congratulations! You finished the 
first level.

GO TO: Yellow Switch Palace




Yellow Switch Palace (YSP)
--------------------------
Difficulty: 0/10 | Brother: Luigi | Dragon Coins: 0 | Time: 200
Enemies: None


This is the Yellow Switch Palace, you are not required to complete this level, 
but I strongly recommend you to do so.

You will start next to a 'P' switch, jump on it.  The whole room will be filled 
with coins for a limited time, so jump back and forth and try to grab as many 
as you can.  You can get as many as 5 extra lives if you try hard enough.  When 
the coins disappear, run through the green pipe and jump on the large yellow 
'!' switch.  The message will tell you that all the yellow '!' block outlines 
will become real yellow '!' blocks; and each will contain a mushroom!

GO TO: Yoshi's Island 2




Yoshi's Island 2 (YI2)
-----------------------
Difficulty: 1/10 | Brother: Mario | Dragon Coins: 5 | Time: 400
Enemies: Chargin' Chuck, Jumping Piranha, Koopa, Monty Mole, 


This level is one of the easier ones, perfect for beginners.  I personally 
think that 400 seconds is too much for this level as I can easily beat it at 
40.

You will start on the ground with no immediate danger.  Walk forward, grab the 
shell, and jump to the upper cliff where ten Koopas are roaming.  Release the 
shell to kill all the Koopas, a lot of points, and an extra life.  As you walk 
forward, two '?' blocks and one '!' block will appear.  Hit the two '?' blocks 
for coins and get the mushroom from the '!' block.  Two more '?' blocks will 
appear, with a coin in the first and a Yoshi in the second.  Hop on the Yoshi 
and continue on your way.  The only new hint the help block tells you is that 
you can hop off the Yoshi by pressing 'R'.  As you walk forward, lick any red 
apples that pop up.  You can also run into the apples, and Yoshi will 
automatically eat them.  The long path ahead will have the first 2 Dragon Coins 
in the air, and two shelless Koopas trying to attack you.  Climb the flight of 
stairs at the end of the path and kill the Chargin' Chuck.  As you jump off the 
edge of the cliff, grab the third Dragon Coin.  Disregard the help block and 
run into the checkpoint.

---Check Point---

Hop across the two yellow pipes and hit the three '?' blocks.  The middle block 
will contain a Yoshi or an extra life (Depending if you already have a Yoshi or 
not). Jump across the cliffs, kill the Monty Moles, and hit the pair of yellow 
bricks to the right.  The second brick will reveal a plant that reaches the 
sky.  Climb the plant, jump on the line of clouds to the right, and grab the 
fourth Dragon Coin.  Jump off the clouds, and get the last Dragon Coin on the 
top of the short cliff that comes up.  Get the mushroom from the '!' block if 
needed.  Monty Moles will start to pop out of the ground at this point, so 
dodge them and go down the first blue pipe that pops up.  You will land in a 
cavern with 6 flying '!' blocks and 4 blue bricks on the ground.  Pick up the 
bricks and throw them at the flying blocks.  The third block will contain an 
extra life while the rest contains coins.  When you are done collecting the 
coins and the extra life, run into the green pipe and you will end up above 
ground from a white pipe.  Jump across the green pipe and release the 'P' 
switch blocked by eight yellow blocks by hitting the middle one.  Step on the 
switch, dodge the Chargin' Chuck and walk across the path of brown bricks that 
appear.  The End Marker will be at the end of the short path of brown bricks. 
Second level complete!

GO TO: Yoshi's Island 3




Yoshi's Island 3 (YI3)
-----------------------
Difficulty: 1.5/10 | Brother: Luigi | Dragon Coins: 5 | Time: 300
Enemies: Flying Koopa, Koopa


It is strongly recommended that you have already pressed the yellow '!' switch 
before you start this level.  If you do, 75% of the time you fall down, a line 
of yellow '!' blocks will save you from losing a life.

You will start near a series of cliffs with no immediate danger.  Jump up the 
series of cliffs and onto the brown platform.  When the platforms starts to 
rotate, jump to the small cliff with a green bush.  Grab the mushroom if needed 
and jump on the middle of the line of yellow bricks.  These bricks will retract 
into one block and back into five every two seconds, so make sure you jump in 
the middle every time.  The first Dragon Coin will be at the top of second line 
of retracting yellow bricks.  Hop on the second brown platform and jump on the 
cliff with two '?' blocks.  The first block contains a coin while the second 
one contains a Yoshi.  Hop on the Yoshi and kill any Koopas you see around you. 
Jump across the two white moving platforms.  When you land on the cliff with 
the red Koopa, kill it and slowly walk off the cliff with out jumping.  When 
you land on the yellow pipe, go down it.  You will end up in a secret cavern.  
Hit the 'P' switch and run across the line of brown bricks that appear.  At the 
end of the line, the second Dragon Coin will pop up.  Grab the coin and exit 
the cavern through the green pipe.  Back above ground, run through the Check 
Point, kill the Koopa and grab the third Dragon Coin.

---Check Point---

Hop above the line of yellow bricks and grab the Fire Flower from the '?' 
block.  Jump across the series of platforms until you reach the long line of 
retracting yellow bricks.  Be very careful as this line retracts vertically and 
horizontally.  As you proceed across the bricks, grab the fourth Dragon Coin 
above the second to last line of bricks.  Jump across the white platform and 
the three brown platforms, grab the final Dragon Coin and pass the End Marker. 
You are done with the third level!

GO TO: Yoshi's Island 4




Yoshi's Island 4 (YI4)
-----------------------
Difficulty: 1.5/10 | Brother: Luigi | Dragon Coins: 5 | Time: 300
Enemies: Guppy, Koopa, Pokey, Spiked Ball


This level is short compared to the other levels in this world.  It also has no 
Check Point.

You will start on a long cliff the shape of a mushroom with hopping Guppies 
swimming below you.  Quickly run past these and grab the mushroom from the '!' 
block before they hop to attack you.  The small green platform floating in the 
water will sink when you step on them, so quickly hop across this grabbing the 
first Dragon Coin sitting there.  Get the Fire Flower from the '?' block at 
next cliff and the second Dragon Coin in the sky above the second floating 
platform.  Jump across the series of platforms while dodging the Spiked Balls 
until you reach a small blue pipe.  When you go down the pipe you will end up 
in a place where many Pokeys reside.  Walk across this area dodging (or eating 
if you have Yoshi) all the Pokeys until you go through the pipe.  Back in the 
previous area, head LEFT until you see the third Dragon Coin above the water, 
grab it.  Now get the 'P' switch, step on it, and grab the star from the '?' 
block.  When the row of brown bricks appears, run across it grabbing the fourth 
Dragon coin.  Now run across the series of mushroom cliffs and sinking 
platforms.  As you run across, dodge the Spiked Balls and make sure you grab 
the final Dragon Coin.  When you reach the green pipe on the last mushroom 
platform, enter it to get to the final area.  At this point, just run into the 
End Marker ignoring the help block.  Congrats! You beat the fourth level.

GO TO: Iggy's Castle




Iggy's Castle #1 (IC1)
-----------------------
Difficulty: 2.5/10 | Brother: Mario | Dragon Coins: 5 | Time: 300
Enemies: Climbing Koopa, Fireball, Falling Log, Iggy


Here it is... the first castle and boss battle!  You really should not have 
much trouble beating Iggy, but I included some tips to help you if you do.

You will start on the stone ground.  Run up to the help block and read what it 
says.  Climb the fence above you, and start to head right, making sure you 
dodge or to kill the Koopas around you.  You can step on the Koopas on the same 
side of you, and you can punch the Koopas opposite towards you.  When you see 
the line of '?' blocks, hit the middle one to reveal a Fire Flower.  Because 
the space between the ceiling and the block is too small to fit through, you 
must use the 'P' switch to bring it down.  Step on the switch, and the Fire 
Flower will fall down when the brown bricks turn into coins.  When you get the 
Fire Flower, grab the first Dragon Coin near the large pool of lava.  As you 
keep moving forward, you will see the second Dragon Coin on the other side of 
the fence, ignore it for now and dodge the jumping fireball.  When you see the 
switch grate, press 'B' to flip to the other side.  Now you can go back and get 
the second Dragon Coin.  Head back right and hop to the other fence until you 
see another switch grate.  Flip and get the third Dragon Coin slightly towards 
the left.  Flip back and keep heading right until you pass the Check Point.  
Disregard the help block and enter the yellow gate to get to the second area.

---Check Point---

This area can be quite dangerous as you are automatically pushed forward and 
huge logs will try to smash you every few seconds. Move forward until you see a 
small pit.  Quickly get the Dragon Coin above the pit and duck to dodge the 
falling log.  The handy flying '?' block will contain a Fire Flower; grab it as 
it will be useful.  The last Dragon Coin will be above a line of retracting 
yellow bricks.  Grab the coin, disregard the help block and enter the red gate 
to fight Iggy.

Boss Battle: Iggy
-----------------

You and Iggy will be on opposite sides of a see-saw floating in lava.  Your 
goal is to push Iggy into the lava but not get pushed in yourself.  Jump on 
Iggy's head (or throw fireballs at him) as the see-saw tilts right.  If you did 
this fast enough, he should fall in the lava and die, but if he survives, you 
can keep pushing him towards the right as long as the see-saw is tilting right 
at the time.  Occasionally Iggy will throw fireballs at you, but they are slow 
and easy to dodge by jumping.  When Iggy finally falls into the lava, he will 
burn and die.  Congrats! You beat your first boss!  Now let's go to Donut 
Plains!

GO TO: Donut Plains 1





=====================
World 2: Donut Plains
=====================


Donut Plains 1 (DP1)
---------------------
Difficulty: 3.5/10 | Brother: Luigi | Dragon Coins: 5 | Time: 400
Enemies: BB Chargin' Chuck, Jumping Koopa, Jumping Piranha, Super Koopa, 
Volcano Lotus


This level tends to get annoying with all the Super Koopas flying around, so 
some people may have some trouble completing this level without getting hit.  
The BB Chargin' Chucks will also get on your nerves.

You start on the ground with no immediate danger.  As you walk forward, a Super 
Koopa with a flashing cape will charge at you.  If you jump (not spin jump) on 
it, the Koopa will lose its cape and a Cape will come out; grab it.  Two Super 
Koopas with yellow capes will charge at you.  These Koopas will not have any 
Cape if you jump on it, so you can ignore these.  Grab the first Dragon Coin on 
the top cliff.  Get the mushroom from the green bush if needed and kill the 
pair of BB Chargin' Chucks.  Get the cape from the next super Koopa and kill 
the Volcano Lotus on the top of the cliff.  Jump on the upper cliff, dodge the 
Super Koopa, and grab the second Dragon Coin.  Ignore the line of yellow bricks 
and jump up the blue pipe.  (Refer to Bonus Game #1)  Head left until you see 
the Check Point; break it.

---Check Point---

Go back right and enter the first blue pipe.  In this area, there are 600 
coins, but I do not recommend you to get them all as it will waste too much 
time and is hard to do.  Grab the Cape and run up the very tall pipe using the 
red triangle.  Start to fly across the area grabbing as many coins as possible 
until you reach the end.  Drop down and exit the area through the green pipe.  
Now run right and climb up the stairs making sure you kill the Volcano Lotus.  
The third Dragon Coin is in the sky, so grab the Yoshi from the '?' block, and 
fly to the upper right until you get the coin.  Fall down while moving right 
and grab the fourth Dragon Coin above the Volcano Lotus.  Kill the BB Chargin' 
Chuck above the three yellow bricks and dodge the four Super Koopas, but try to 
get the Cape from the first one.  The last Dragon Coin is near the green pipe. 
*** Because you did not get the green '!' switch, ignore the stack of green '!' 
block outlines and the help block.  Kill the Volcano Lotus and the BB Chargin' 
Chuck, grab the mushrooms if needed and run through the End Marker.  You 
finished Donut Plains 1, Congrats!

Secret Exit: 

You can only use the Secret Exit if you pressed the Green '!' Switch.  Run up 
the line of green '!' blocks and end up on a small platform.  Jump across the 
pipe and put the key in the keyhole.  You found the secret exit!  Good Job!

Donut Secret 1 (DS1)
--------------------
Difficulty: 3.5/10 | Brother: Mario | Dragon Coins: 6 | Time: 300
Enemies: Blurp, Flying Koopa, Guppy, Rip Van Fish


This is your first under-water level.  It may seem hard with all the fish, but 
if you get the Fire Flower from the Top Secret Area, you can kill all the fish 
with fireballs.  I find it strange that Mario can throw fireballs underwater...

You will enter the course from an orange pipe.  Swim forward, grab the five 
coins, and dodge the Blurp and the Guppy.  Kill the Rip Van Fish with fireballs 
and get the first Dragon Coin that is above the line of '?' blocks.  If needed, 
get the Fire Flower from the third '?' block.  Swim forward and enter the blue 
pipe that is hanging from the ceiling.  You will find yourself in a very tall, 
but skinny cavern.  Get the 'P' balloon in the '?' block in the middle and 
float up towards the left.  Get as many coins as you float up, and dodge the 
Flying Koopas that roam the place.  When the balloon runs out, get the second 
'P' balloon from the '?' block above the line of stone blocks.  Two Dragon 
Coins will be on either side of the cavern at the very top.  After you get the 
second and third Dragon Coins, exit the area through the orange pipe on the 
right.  Hurry, because time is not on your side.  If you missed a Dragon Coin, 
you can go back, reenter the blue pipe and try again.  Now, kill the Guppy 
hovering over a small pit to the right and swim down it to find the fourth 
Dragon Coin.  Keep moving right, get the Fire Flower from the '?' block if 
needed, and kill the Rip Van Fish that is guarding the fifth Dragon Coin.  Kill 
the fish, throw one of the blocks away and get the Dragon Coin.  Grab the 
second blue block to help you swim faster and get the Check Point right below 
you. *** 

---Check Point---

From here, swim forward, kill the two Guppies and the Rip Van Fish, but ignore 
the 'P' switch.  As you keep swimming forward, grab the sixth Dragon Coin above 
you.  Kill the sleeping Rip Van Fish and swim forward ignoring the line of 
brown bricks and the keyhole below you.  As you swim forward, kill all the 
guppies and the Rip Van fish and pass the End Marker near the arrow.  You beat 
your first all water level!  Good Job!

Secret Exit:

After the Check Point, swim forward killing the fish around you until you see 
the 'P' switch.  DO NOT step on the switch yet!  Instead, grab the switch and 
swim forward dodging the fish and grabbing the last Dragon Coin floating above 
you.  Soon you will see a line of brown bricks.  When you do stop, drop the 
switch and step on it to turn the bricks into coins.  Quickly swim through the 
line of coins and hit the '?' block revealing a key.  Swim out of the pit and 
put the key into the keyhole to end the level.  Nice job!  You found the secret 
exit!  Now on to the Secret Ghost House!!

Donut Secret House (DSH)

Difficulty: 4/10 | Brother: Mario | Dragon Coins: 5 | Time: 400
Enemies: Big Boo, Boo Buddy, Eerie


This is the Secret House!  It is dominated by Boos and Eeries, so always watch 
your step.  This level has no Check Point.  You should only get all five Dragon 
Coins only if you plan to use the secret exit.

You will start near a flight of stairs with no immediate danger.  Run up the 
flight of steps dodging the circle of Boos, until you are touching the tall 
brick pillar.  You will notice that there is a gap in the circle of Boos.  When 
the gap is facing to the left, jump through it, and stand on the ground.  Get 
the first Dragon Coin to the left when the Boos allow, then run to the right. 
Dodge the Eerie, and step on the 'P' switch that will be near the Big Boo.  
Jump over the Big Boo when it moves near you.  Quickly run up the second flight 
of stairs ignoring the yellow brick and the Dragon Coin below you, and enter 
the yellow gate.  From here, head left, grab the Fire Flower from the '?' 
block, and dodge the lonely Boo until you see another circle of Boos.  When the 
gap persists, jump through the middle of the circle then to the other side 
ignoring the '?' block.  Grab the five coins on the small platform, jump over 
the pile of yellow bricks and keep heading right.  Ignore the help block, the 
two Boos, and the yellow gate.  Jump onto the platform with the 'P' switch.  
Ignore the 'P' switch for now and climb up the series of brown blocks on the 
left wall to get the second Dragon Coin.  Jump back down and carry the 'P' 
switch to the right and step on it when you see the yellow bricks.  Quickly 
enter the yellow gate hovering over the three '?' blocks to enter the next 
area.  This area is dominated by Boos and Eeries, so be careful.  Head right, 
grab the third Dragon Coin and enter the yellow gate.  Now under the second 
flight of stairs in the first area, grab the fourth Dragon Coin and get the 
extra life from the yellow brick.  Reenter the second area through the yellow 
gate.  Back in the second area, head all the way right and bring the 'P' switch 
near the yellow bricks again. *** Hit the switch, run past the yellow gate and 
enter the blue gate on top of the platform.  Outside the house, run to the End 
Marker and finish the level.  Great Job!! You beat Donut Secret House!!

Secret Exit:

Step on the 'P' switch and hit the yellow brick right above the yellow gate.  
Quickly climb the plant that pops out and run right to see a blue gate and the 
last Dragon Coin.  Duck-slide under the blocks to get the Dragon Coin, then 
quickly jump and enter the Blue Gate to fight a Big Boo.  You will be standing 
on a cluster of blue bricks with two Boos and a Big Boo hovering over you.  
Pick up a block and hit the Big Boo to hurt him.  He will turn invisible and 
fly around.  Hit him when he turns visible and tries to scare you again (Even 
if he can't hurt you).  Repeat this once more to kill the Big Boo and beat the 
level.  Great Job!!  You beat the mini-Boss!  Now on to Star Road!

Difficulty: 2/10 | Brother: Luigi | Dragon Coins: 5 | Time: 400
Enemies: Buzzy Beetle, FB Chargin' Chuck, Spike Top, Swooper


This is you first automatic moving level, meaning that the level scrolls 
automatically.  This raises the danger of you being squished, so be very 
careful.  There is no Check Point in this level.

Kill the beetle that walks towards you where you start and get the mushroom 
from the '!' block and the coins from the '?' ones.  Dodge one more beetle and 
two swoopers and quickly jump on the yellow ground before it starts to rise.  
Kill the beetle and grab the Dragon Coin when you rise up.  Dodge another 
Swooper and get the Cape from the '?' block when you get off the moving ground. 
Quickly run across the gray ground before the yellow ceiling squashes you.  
Dodge more beetles and Swoopers and beware of the rising ground until you reach 
the second green pipe. *** Get the Dragon Coin near this pipe and run past the 
last piece of rising yellow ground.  Dodge even more beetles and swoopers and 
grab the third Dragon Coin.  From the flying '?' block, get the Cape.  The 
ceiling will start to fall and rise at his point, so be careful.  Dodge two 
more beetles until you see and grab the fourth Dragon Coin.  Quickly run across 
the yellow floor and get the last Dragon Coin near the blue pipe.  Dodge the 
pair of Spike Tops and exit the ground via green pipe.  Run to the End Marker 
to finish the level.  You finished the first automatic moving level!

Secret Exit:

Go up the pipe.  Get the mushroom if needed and kill the lonely FB Chargin' 
Chuck.  Go past the yellow bricks and get the blue shell.  If you have Yoshi, 
eat the shell and fly up above the fourth yellow brick to reveal a key and a 
hole.  Spit out the shell and bring the key into the keyhole. (By licking it)  
If you don't have Yoshi, you can throw the shell at the second yellow brick to 
reveal a green plant.  Hop across the series of blocks, climb the plant and put 
the key in the keyhole.  Good Job, you found the secret!

right you can easily get an extra life.

You will be above the floor on a long platform.  Step on the switch only if the 
shelless Koopa is on the right of the short platform below you.  When he kicks 
the shell, start to run after it. (Stay on the upper platform)  It will kill 
ten Koopas below you giving you an extra life!  Enter the green pipe and step 
on the huge green switch in the next area.  Now, the green '!' blocks will be

Donut Ghost House (DGH)
-----------------------
Difficulty: 2/10 | Brother: Mario | Dragon Coins: 5 | Time: 300
Enemies: Boo Buddy


This is the first Ghost House level.  It is not really hard, but the Boo 
Buddies might get on your nerves.  There is no Check Point in this level.  If 
you choose to go to the secret exit, you cannot collect all 5 Dragon Coins.

You will find yourself on an eerie-looking floor with tons of Boos flying above 
you. *** Ignore the help block and run forward making sure you dodge all of the 
Boos and the many gaps on the floor.  When the Boos are translucent, they 
cannot hurt you, but you cannot hurt them either way.  Get the Dragon Coin 
after the second gap on the floor and enter the yellow gate after the third 
gap.  You will see a Dragon Coin and a yellow brick under the flight of stairs 
in this area.  Because you cannot get them, ignore them for now and enter the 
yellow gate.  Now, you will appear the flight of stairs, so grab the Dragon 
Coin and step on the 'P' switch from the yellow brick.  Quickly run to the left 
and enter the blue gate on the platform.  In this area, hit the help block and 
read what is says.  Hit the '?' block to reveal an expanding line of coins.  
Navigate the line of coins away from walls, and blocks to get as many as 
possible.  Collect the coins and hit the green star block to get an extra life. 
Above the star block is the third Dragon Coin; grab it and exit through the 
yellow gate.  Now back in the second area, climb the stairs and enter the 
yellow gate.  Below the staircase again, ignore the yellow brick and enter the 
yellow gate above you again.  Again you will be in the same spot below the 
staircase.  Grab the fourth Dragon Coin and hit the yellow brick to reveal a 
green plant.  Climb the plant, grab the last Dragon Coin, and enter the yellow 
gate on the platform.  Outside the Ghost House, run to the End Marker and 
finish the level.  Congratulations!  You finished the first Ghost House!

Secret Exit:

You must have a cape to use the secret exit.  Go under the help block and fly 
up towards the left.  Try to dodge all the Boos and land on the very long 
platform above the level.  Run towards the right, dodging all the Boos until 
you fall into a large pit.  All four yellow bricks contain extra life, so 
carefully collect them and exit through the yellow gate.  The End Marker is 
right outside the Ghost House.  You found the secret exit!!

place to gather powerups and a Yoshi.  I guarantee you that you will come here 
very often.

Flowers while the two on the left contain Capes.  The middle block contains a

Donut Secret 2 (DS2)
--------------------
Difficulty: 4/10 | Brother: Mario | Dragon Coins: 5 | Time: 300
Enemies: Flying Koopa, Jumping Piranha, Koopa, Nip Nip, Spike Top


This is your first icy level, meaning that you will more than likely slip off 
the edge when you first try this level.  This level does not have a Check 
Point.  Yoshi is recommended to play this level easily.

You will find yourself near a help block and a '?' block.  Read what the help 
block says and use the Koopa shell to hit the '?' block.  Control the line of 
coins so that it does not hit anything for as long as possible; collect the 
coins when you are done.  Climb the ice cliffs and jump off the right side for 
the first Dragon Coin.  Use the trampoline to hit the yellow brick above it.  
When the green plant shoots up, climb it and jump off a small floating ice 
platform with the 'yellow brick.  Hit the brick, grab the star, and jump off 
the ledge tilting right to grab the second Dragon Coin and to avoid the pit 
below you.  Run through the Spike Tops, grabbing the third Dragon Coin near the 
tall cliff, and the fourth one to the left of the pit.  Keep running forward, 
climb any cliffs and kill all Spike Tops until you reach a cliff slanting to 
the right.  Carefully hop across the pipes, dodging the Jumping Piranhas and 
the Nip Nips until you see a green pipe sticking out of the ceiling.  Hit the 
yellow brick to get the mushroom if needed, but ignore the green pipe.  Fall to 
ground level, dodge the incoming Spike Top and get the last Dragon Coin.  Hit 
the green Koopa and kick the shell to kill four Spike Tops and get a lot of 
points.  Carefully jump up the slanted cliff and jump down the line of eight 
Koopas, getting an extra life.  Run forward and hit the End Marker.  Good Job! 
You beat Donut Secret 2!

Donut Plains 3 (DP3)
---------------------
Difficulty: 2/10 | Brother: Luigi | Dragon Coins: 5 | Time: 300
Enemies: Flying Koopa, Fuzzy, Koopa


This is another 'jumping' level, meaning there are less enemies and more 
obstacles and pits to fall in.  This level is quite short, but make sure you 
have a Yoshi as he will be very useful.

On the mushroom platform, hit the help block in front of you and read what it 
says.  Jump past the three rotating gray platforms and land on the tall, but 
small mushroom platform.  Get the Cape if needed and jump on the brown platform 
that follows a circular path.  The first Dragon Coin is on one of the gray 
rotating platforms.  Now eat the blue Koopa and start to fly towards the upper 
right.  Land on the line of clouds and follow the coins until you see the 
second Dragon Coin.  After grabbing it, hop to the ground and read the help 
block right next to you.  Kill the Koopa, jump on the moving brown platform and 
hit the 'ON' switch.  You will notice that the 'ON' switch will turn into an 
'OFF' one, and the path will change.  When you see the second 'OFF' switch, hit 
it, dodge the spinning Fuzzy, and grab the third Dragon Coin.  Now, back on the 
ground, run through the Check Point.

---Check Point---

Hop across the brown platform, making sure you dodge the Fuzzy, and get the 
Cape from the middle of the spinning gray platforms shortly after.  Jump on the 
stationary brown platform and it will start to move towards the right.  Dodge 
the Koopas, and grab the fourth Dragon Coin.  Ignore the yellow pipe and jump 
across the two sets of spinning gray platforms grabbing the Dragon Coin on the 
second set.  Hop across the orange pipe and the spinning gray platforms (Dodge 
the Fuzzy) until you land on a stationary brown platform.  Hit the green star 
block for an extra life and run through the End Marker.  You finished Donut 
Plains 3!  Only one level away from Morton's Castle!

Difficulty: 3/10 | Brother: Mario | Dragon Coins: 5 | Time: 300
Enemies: Koopa, Goomba, Flying Goomba, Para-Goomba, Jumping Piranha, Amazing 
Flyin' Hammer Brother


It is recommended that you have a Yoshi and two Fire Flowers before you enter 
this level.  The second half of the level is easier than the first.

Quickly run forward and kill the shelless Koopa (or the yellow shell) before it 
turns into a super shell.  Get the first Dragon Coin on the top cliff near the 
green pipe.  Hop across the pipes, dodge the Jumping Piranha, and you will 
encounter a blue Koopa.  Eat the Koopa and start flying across the level, but 
be careful of the rising green pipes.  Spit out the shell when you reach the 
line of yellow bricks and get the second Dragon Coin.  Break the bricks below 
you and get the Fire Flower from the middle '?' block.  Plunge down the blue 
pipe with the Jumping Piranha and you will land in a cavern with tons of Flying 
Koopas.  Dodge the first four Koopas and grab the third Dragon Coin above the 
line of Koopas above the large pit.  Enter the green pipe and you will be 
blasted out of the green pipe cannon.  Don't touch any button, and you will hit 
the Check Point near the tall green pipe.

---Check Point---

Jump across the pit and into the first ditch where a Yoshi is trapped in a '?' 
block.  The fourth Dragon Coin is in the second ditch and a shifting block is 
near the third ditch.  Grab the star and jump on the Amazing Flyin' Hammer 
Brother, killing it.  Quickly run across the long and bumpy ground ahead of you 
killing all the Goombas.  The last Dragon Coin will be at the middle of your 
run.  If you are fast enough and still invincible, you can jump across the huge 
pit, ignore the Amazing Flyin' Hammer Brother, and pass the End Marker.  Great 
Job!  You can now enter Morton's Castle!!!

Welcome to the second Castle!  The area after the Check Point is dangerous as 
you can get easily squashed.  Get two Capes before you attempt this level.

You will start on the stone ground with no immediate danger.  Walk forward, 
dodge the two jumping Thwimp, and get on the escalator.  Dodge the three Ball 
'n' Chains as you walk up the escalator, getting the mushroom and the first 
Dragon Coin on the way.  Enter the yellow gate when you reach the top of the 
stairs.  In this area, head left and dodge the Thwomps trying to squash you, 
and the pit of lava after the second Thwomp.  The second Dragon Coin will be 
located in the resting place of the third Thwomp; so grab it only when the 
Thwomp is on the ground trying to crush you.  The Dry Bones near the gate can 
only be killed if you hit it with a cape, but if you jump on it, it will be 
stunned for 3 seconds.  Enter the gate and jump through the Check Point in the 
next area.

---Check Point---

Here, many large stone blocks will moving back and forth slowly in a consistent 
manner.  When the blocks start to move left, climb up the staircase of stone 
blocks that will slowly appear.  Jump across the blocks and to the line of '?' 
above the Check Point when the blocks move right.  Quickly get the Cape from 
the middle '?' block and jump on the upper stone ledge when the blocks move 
left again.  Before the blocks move right again, grab the third Dragon Coin and 
land on top of the tower of small stone blocks.  With the blocks on the right, 
jump on the retracting 'bridge' and to the stone platform with the Dry Bones 
and the trampoline. Kill the Dry Bones and use the trampoline to jump up the 
gap when the blocks are moved towards the left.  A flight of stone stairs will 
emerge when the blocks move towards the right; climb it.  When you see the line 
of yellow bricks, hit the second one from the right to reveal a green plant; 
climb up it.  The fourth Dragon Coin will pop up when the blocks are on the 
right side.  Climb down the plant and hop up the vertical path on the right 
using stone blocks as support.  You must do this quickly and before the blocks 
move left or you will be squashed by the stone blocks.  Kill the three Dry 
Bones and get the coins out of the three '?' blocks.  Hop on the middle block 
and to the platform on the right when the blocks are moved to the right.  When 
the blocks move left again, quickly climb to the platform where you will see 
many yellow spikes.  Jump across the small stone bricks making sure you dodge 
the yellow spikes.  Grab the last Dragon Coin and hop on the platform with the 
red gate when the blocks move right.  Kill the Dry Bones, grab the Cape and 
enter the red gate to fight Morton.

Boss Battle: Morton
-------------------

You can kill this boss under 10 seconds if you act very quickly.  When Morton 
is on the ground, jump on his head to damage him. (He is not damaged by 
swinging your cape) Do this two more times to kill him and beat the castle.  If 
you don't step on his head quickly enough, Morton will climb up the wall, on 
the ceiling and try to crush you!  Run away from him if he does this and jump 
on him when he hits the ground.  Sooner or later you will jump on him thrice 
causing him to die.  You beat the boss!!  Now let's go to the Vanilla Dome!

Spiked Top, Swooper


This is the first level in the Vanilla Dome.  It is not too difficult, but you 
need to be very quick in the second area or you will die.

You will start near a flight of stairs.  Run down the stairs dodging the Spiked 
Top, the Swoopers, and the Buzzy Beetle until you see a flying '?' block.  Get 
the Fire Flower from the block if needed, dodge more Swoopers, and jump on the

pipe, breaking the yellow bricks below you.  You will get the first Dragon Coin 
and land on the stone ground.  Get the Cape from the sixth yellow brick to the 
left of the pipe and spin your way through the tower of bricks blocking your 
path.  Get the extra life on the first yellow brick on the left and walk right 
until you see the lone Buzzy Beetle and a '?' block under a staircase of red 
'!' block outlines. *** Ignore the block outlines for now, get the Fire Flower 
from the '?' block and walk forward.  Kill the flying Koopa, dodge the gaps and 
enter the green pipe on the right wall.  In this area, run up the small slope 
and grab the star from the '?' block.  Jump on the yellow stone ground, and it 
will start sinking.  Now RUN to the right, kill the Buzzy Beetles and the 
Flying Koopa, and grab the second Dragon Coin near the end.  Run through the

top.  Move the blue brick away and get the third Dragon Coin.  Dodge the Buzzy 
Beetle and drop down to the ground.  Get the mushroom from the '?' block and 
hop on the first red pipe.  Dodge the Jumping Piranhas as you hop across pipes. 
The fourth Dragon Coin is above the flying Koopa near the green pipe.  Jump u 
the steep slope and dodge the Buzzy Beetles at the top.  Fall down to the 
lowest level, destroy the green shell and slide under the brown bricks to get 
the last Dragon Coin.  Use the two yellow bricks to get to the middle level, 
kick the blue shell until you reach the arrow sign.  Follow the sign, dodging 
the FB Chargin' Chuck and the Buzzy Beetle, to get to the End Marker.  Great 
Job!  You finished the first level in Vanilla Dome!!

Secret Exit:

You must press the red '!' switch before trying to find this exit.  Climb the 
steps of red '!' blocks and hit the yellow brick.  Climb the plant that rises

This is quite a short level, but you can lose due to time if you keep falling 
down.  There is no Check Point in this level.

You will start on the ground.  Climb the cliffs towards the left, dodging both 
Koopas, until you see the pair of '?' blocks and green spring platforms.  Hit

Flying Koopa.  When you reach the gray platform above the Dragon Coin, drop

outlines to get the third Dragon Coin. *** Head back to the middle of the 
platform and climb up the series of cliffs until you see the green trampoline. 
There will be six flying Koopas flying back and fourth consistently with a 
small gap between them.  When the gap gets to the middle, quickly jump on the 
trampoline to get to the next series of platforms.  Here, grab the trampoline 
from the right and climb the series of cliffs until you reach the small 
platform hovering in mid-air in the middle of the course.  Drop the trampoline 
and jump on it to get the fourth Dragon Coin.  The last Dragon Coin can be 
easily reached by jumping to the far right.  Climb the series of platforms 
again, but this time, jump on the green pipe.  Hop up the four green spring 
platforms and enter the green pipe to the right.  In this area, run past the FB 
Chargin' Chuck on a high cliff and pass the End Marker.  Great Job!!  You 
finished Vanilla Secret 1!!

Secret Exit:

Nintendo tried to make the game so that you could only get to the secret exit 
if you pressed the blue '!' switch, but you can still get it if you have a 
cape.  On the platform near the top of the second plant, run from the right and 
fly towards the left.  Land when you see the green pipe sticking out of the 
left wall and enter it.  In this area, dodge the FB Chargin' Chuck and pass the

Enemies: Buzzy Beetle, Chargin' Chuck, Guppy, Spiked Top, Swooper


This level itself is not that hard, but getting all five Dragon Coins is.  Time 
can pose a problem when getting all five Coins.  Yoshi is useless in this level 
as you will lose him early on.  

You will fall into a small pool of water.  Swim to the right and quickly kill 
the hopping Guppy before it lands into the water.  Kill the Buzzy Beetle and 
fall into the large pool of water on the right.  Get the Fire Flower from the 
second '?' block from the right and kill the swimming Guppy trying to stop you. 
Keep swimming forward, killing all Guppies, until you see a lone yellow brick 
above the surface.  Hit the brick and climb the green plant that rises from it. 
Jump to the right and keep walking forward killing any Buzzy Beetles you see.  
Jump down the pit to get 7 coins and the first Dragon Coin.  You will again 
land into the pool of water.  Swim forward killing the Guppies, until you see 
the line of three '?' blocks.  There is a secret extra life hidden in the 
invisible block directly under the first coin.  Get the Cape from the last 
block, collect the coins and keep moving forward.  When you see the lone '?' 
block, hit it, get the Fire Flower, and jump on top of it. Jump to the right 
side and get the second Dragon Coin to the direct left.  Hop back on the right 
side and keep moving forward killing the Chargin' Chuck when it breaks through 
the yellow bricks and the Buzzy Beetle.  Run through the Check point near the 
large stack of yellow bricks.

Kill the Chargin' Chuck when it breaks through and get the star from the 
shifting block.  Slide down the slope getting the third Dragon Coin then step 
on the 'P' switch resting on the brown brick.  Run through the line of coins 
and get the fourth Dragon Coin on top of the cliff near the green pipe and the 
Fire Flower form the '?' block. *** This part of the level gets annoying as 
there are many Swoopers, Buzzy Beetles, and Chargin' Chucks.  So run across the 
last stretch of the level, dodging all the enemies until you pass the End 
Marker.  Nice Job!!  You beat the level!!

Secret Exit:

The only way to get the last Dragon Coin is to go to the secret exit.  Run all 
the way back, past the broken Check Point and to the left side of the ledge 
where the second Dragon Coin was located.  Keep walking to the left making sure 
you don't step on the 'P' switch.  Pick up the switch and keep moving.  When 
you pass the barrier of coins, step on the switch, quickly run left and fall in 
the second pit trying to get all nine coins.  On the left side above the large 
stone platform floating in water is the final Dragon Coin; get it. Grab the key 
from the same platform, swim down with it and put it in the keyhole below you 
making sure you dodge all the Guppies.  Great Job!!! You will be heading to the 
secret Red '!' Switch Palace!

Normal Exit - GO TO: Vanilla Ghost House
Secret Exit - GO TO: Red Switch Palace



 
Red Switch Palace (RSP)
-----------------------
Difficulty: 1/10 | Brother: Mario | Dragon Coins: 0 | Time: 200
Enemies: Koopa


Welcome to the Red Switch Palace!!  This is just like your standard switch 
palace, get an extra life in the first area and press the switch in the next.  
This level is easy, but the invincible Koopa may pose some slight trouble.

When you start, you will be right in front of a 'P' switch and Koopas are 
trapped between brown bricks.  Bring the 'P' switch on the brown brick and 
quickly step on it.  When you press the switch, quickly jump on the upper 
platform composed of brown bricks to avoid getting hit by the invincible Koopa. 
Run towards the right, jumping across platforms until you see the green pipe.  
When you get the extra life, spin jump to kill the Koopa Shell and enter the 
pipe.  You know what to do!  Run forward and press the red switch.  Good Job, 
now all the red '!' block outlines will turn into solid blocks!  The only 
downfall is that these blocks contain no power up like the other ones.

GO TO: Vanilla Dome 1




Vanilla Ghost House (VGH)
-------------------------
Difficulty: 3/10 | Brother: Luigi | Dragon Coins: 5 | Time: 400
Enemies: Big Boo, Boo Buddy, Eerie


This level is quite easy, but if you did not master jumping by now, you will 
have trouble in the second area with the green bubbles.  400 seconds is more 
than enough time to complete the level.

When you start, two Eeries will be floating towards you.  Duck down to dodge 
them and go to the spinning circle of Boos.  Get the first Dragon Coin under 
the platform and the Fire Flower from the '?' block above it when the gaps 
persist.  From here, walk forward and start hopping across the series of small, 
scattered platforms.  Dodge the Boos guarding some of the platforms and get the 
second Dragon Coin near the end of the run.  When you see the two lines of 
yellow bricks, lure the Big Boo up and drop down under the first line of 
bricks.  Keep hitting yellow bricks on the right side until you hit a green 
plant that will sprout up.  Climb the plant, jump on the platform and get the 
third Dragon Coin surrounded by four coins.  When you see the small gap in the 
platform, jump down it to hit the Check point near another Big Boo.

---Check Point---

Dodge the Big Boo and run into the middle of the circle of Boos when the gap 
persists.  Get the coins from the '?' block and the fourth Dragon Coin above it 
(when the gap is facing up).  Run out of the circle of Boos and enter the 
yellow gate near the right wall.  In this area, many large green bubbles will 
be bouncing about.  You cannot destroy these bubbles, but to prevent injury, 
you can spin jump on the top and bounce off.  Run forward, dodging the bubbles 
and hop on the upper platform.  Keep dodging the bubbles, jump down to the 
lower ground, and hop across the broken floor.  When you see three yellow 
bricks above a platform, stop and hit the middle brick to allow a 'P' switch to 
pop out.  Grab the 'P' switch and walk forward ignoring the yellow gate.  Grab 
the final Dragon Coin and the five coins in an arch.  Step on the switch and 
enter the blue gate to leave the Ghost House.  Run into the End Marker to beat 
the level.  Nice Job!!  You beat the Ghost House of Vanilla Dome!

GO TO: Vanilla Dome 3




Vanilla Dome 3 (VD3)
--------------------
Difficulty: 3/10 | Brother: Mario | Dragon Coins: 5 | Time: 400
Enemies: Blaarg, Buzzy Beetle, Flying Koopa, Guppy, Jumping Piranha, Koopa, 
Piranha Plant, Spiked Top 


This is the longest level in this world, so time will be a problem even with 
400 seconds.  Having Yoshi is strongly recommended as he will eat all your 
enemies.

You will start on top of a short flight of steps with no immediate danger.  
Head down and jump on the platform composed of four skulls in the lava.  As you 
start to float forward, dodge the Blaargs trying to eat you and your Yoshi.  
The first flying '?' and the stationary one contain a single coin while the 
upper flying '?' block contains an extra life.  When you land, ignore the Fire 
Flower from the '?' block and eat up the two Jumping Piranhas and the Buzzy 
Beetle.  Jump up the three pipes, get the first Dragon Coin near the slope and 
jump on another skull platform.  Get the coin from the flying '?' block and 
dodge the Blaargs in the upper part of the lava pool.  When the skull platform 
falls down to the lower level of lava, jump to the stone ground.  Run forward, 
touch the first red pipe, and jump up to reveal an invisible block.  Climb up 
the block and get the Cape from the '?' block between the two pipes.  Jump past 
the second pipe and run to another skull platform.  Dodge the single Blaarg in 
the middle of the pool and jump when you see the platform made of brown bricks. 
Get the six coins and the second Dragon Coin, kill the Buzzy Beetle, and walk 
forward until you see a bunch of pipes sticking out of the ceiling.  Eat up the 
Piranha Plants that pop out of three of the pipes and continue forward.  Step 
on the skull platform and hop on the upper stone ledge.  Walk forward, kill the 
Buzzy Beetle, but ignore the '?' block contain coins.  Eat the Piranha Plant 
popping out of the green pipe and hop back on the skull platform when it 
reaches you.  Go down the yellow pipe when it appears near the end of the lava 
pool.  When you fall down, you will land in an ice cave.  Run forward, dodging 
the icy pools, Buzzy Beetles and the Guppies.  Grab the third Dragon Coin above 
the Flying Koopa and kill the Buzzy Beetle near the blue pipe.  Get the Cape 
from the '?' block and jump up the pipe.  Run forward and up the pair of orange 
pipe and land on the middle '?' block.  Jump down, kill the shelless Koopa and 
jump on the shell to get the Yoshi from the '?' block.  After you grab the 
Yoshi, run through the Check Point.

---Check Point---

Run forward and hop on another skull platform in the lava.  As the lava's 
height climbs, dodge the two Blaargs lunging towards you.  When the skull 
platform suddenly drops, jump on the floating stone block and grab the fourth 
Dragon Coin in the middle of the air to the right.  Land back on the skull 
platform, dodge more Blaargs and jump on stone ground shortly after.  Walk 
forward until you see the first blue pipe.  Hop across the pipes, eat the 
Spiked Tops that crawl around and kill the Buzzy Beetle near the orange pipe.  
Hop across the broken ground, grabbing the last Dragon Coin and dodging the 
Buzzy Beetles.  Get the Cape from the '?' block if needed and keep going 
forward until you see yet another skull platform.  Hop on the platform and jump 
on the stone cliff with many pipes sticking out of the ceiling.  Eat the 
Piranha Plants that pop out of four of the five pipes and jump back on the 
skull platform.  When the platform falls down into the pit, jump to the End 
Marker to beat the level.  Nice!  You beat the longest level in Vanilla Dome!!

GO TO: Vanilla Dome 4




Vanilla Dome 4 (VD4)
--------------------
Difficulty: 3.5/10 | Brother: Mario | Dragon Coins: 5 | Time: 300
Enemies: Bullet Bill, Flying Koopa, Koopa


The first half of this level is quite hard as Bullet Bills attack you from 
every direction every two seconds.  When ever you hear a gun shot, make sure 
you see where the Bullet Bill is going to avoid getting hit.  Having two capes 
is strongly recommended before entering this level.

You will start on a large mushroom platform.  Walk forward and you will shortly 
see the first Dragon Coin over a small gap.  Jump up the spring and land on the 
mushroom shaped ground with the red Koopa.  Kill that Koopa and the Flying 
Koopa floating shortly after.  Jump down the spring platforms between the white 
walls to get the mushroom.  Hop back up towards the right and land on the 
mushroom platform.  Jump up the series of white walls and across the mushroom 
platforms until you see the Flying Koopa.  Kill the Koopa and hop across the 
green springs making sure you grab the second Dragon Coin.  Grab the Cape from 
the '?' block above the brown brick, it will be very helpful.  Kill the Koopa 
below you and use the green spring to jump past the white wall and to land on 
the small mushroom platform.  Kill the Flying Koopas and hop across another 
white wall using the spring.  On the tall mushroom platform, kill the Flying 
Koopa near the platform and run through the Check Point.

---Check Point---

From this point on, the Bullet Bills will shoot at you in clusters of fours 
heading in all four directions and Jumping Piranhas will appear.  Use the green 
springs to hop across the yellow pipe with the Jumping Piranha.  When you see 
the blue pipe, Kill the Jumping Piranha and enter it.  You will end up in a 
cavern near skull platform in a pool of lava. (I know you must be sick of these 
by now, but bear with me)  Jump on the platform to start the ride.  You will 
shortly come across a brick so jump over it.  Jump over the next three stacks 
bricks and duck under the next two.  You will notice the piles of bricks are 
getting taller, just jump at the right moment and you will be fine.  Jump over 
the next pile of bricks, duck under the next.  Now, the skull platform will 
fall down, first to a lower level of lava then into a pit.  Jump on the stone 
ground before the platform falls.  Your reward for all the jumping is the third 
Dragon Coin, so grab it and exit via green pipe.  When you enter through the 
blue pipe, you will notice that Bullet Bills stopped attacking!  From the pipe, 
walk forward, kill the green Koopa and get the fourth Dragon Coin between two 
white walls.  Dodge the red Flying Koopas, jump across the next set of white 
walls using the green springs and grab the last Dragon Coin in the air.  The 
End Marker will be near the last Dragon Coin, so run through to beat the level. 
Nice Job!! Now let's conquer Lemmy's Castle!!

GO TO: Lemmy's Castle #3




Vanilla Secret 2 (VS2)
----------------------
Difficulty: 3/10 | Brother: Luigi | Dragon Coins: 5 | Time: 300
Enemies: Bob-Bomb, Chargin' Chuck, Flying Koopa, Lakitu, Spiny


In the first half of this level, many Koopas will be jumping around to get you. 
Because you will more than likely be hit by one of these Koopas, get two Capes 
and a Yoshi before you attempt this level.

You will start on the ground near a green bush.  Walk forward, kill the pair of 
Jumping Koopas trying attacking you, and go back to where you started.  Now, 
run forward, fly up towards the right, and land on the line of clouds with many 
coins.  Walk across the clouds and get the first Dragon Coin after you jump the 
small gap.  Drop straight down and you will land on a green '!' block.  Eat a 
Koopa, and use the shell to get the Cape from the block.  Walk forward, dodge 
Flying Koopas, and get the second Dragon Coin on top of the small hill.  As you 
continue, tons of Flying Koopas will be jumping towards you, so either jump on 
them or eat them with your Yoshi.  Get the Fire Flower from the lone '?' block 
if needed and jump across the gap shortly after.  Dodge the Jumping Piranhas 
that pop out of the two purple pipes and get the third Dragon Coin between 
them.  Head right and run through the Check Point.

---Check Point---

Jump up the slanted cliff, kill the Spiny, and slide down the sloped edge.  
Stop when you see the two yellow bricks, the four note blocks and the blue 
pipe.  Bob-Bombs will start to fall in the rest of this level, so dodge them, 
kill the Lakitu that is throwing Spinies from the pipe and get the Cape from 
the third note block.   Climb up the slanted green pipe and keep heading 
forward.  Slide down the slope making sure you dodge the two Spinies and get 
the fourth Dragon Coin above the brown brick in the gap.  When you see the line 
of four yellow bricks, stop and hit the second brick to revel a silver 'P' 
switch.  Step on the switch to turn all Spinies in this level into silver coins 
for a short time.  Get all of the silver coins in the pit, jump across the gap, 
and get another silver coin sliding on the slanted green pipe.  You should get 
a total of 9 extra lives if you got all the silver coins.  Kill the Lakitu in 
the green pipe and the Chargin' Chuck on the line of '?' blocks before he 
duplicates.  Now go down the green pipe where the Lakitu was to enter the next 
area.  To your left is a 'P' switch, step on it and jump on the platform of 
brown bricks.  Quickly run left, get as many coins as you can as you run, and 
get the last Dragon Coin near the orange pipe.  Jump back on the stone ground 
and enter the pipe.  You will be blasted out of the slanted green pipe and will 
fly through the End Marker if you hop across the line of red Flying Koopas.  
Nice Job!!  You completed Vanilla Secret 2!!

GO TO: Vanilla Secret 3




Vanilla Secret 3 (VS3)
----------------------
Difficulty: 2/10 | Brother: Mario | Dragon Coins: 6 | Time: 300
Enemies: Porcupuffer


This level is easy compared to the other levels in this world.  You should have 
a Yoshi to save you from the Porcupuffer if you fall.

You will start on a mushroom platform over water with no immediate danger.  
Jump past the first four dolphins and land on the tall, but skinny platform.  
Get the Cape and the first Dragon Coin in the air.  Because the dolphins are 
swimming backwards, jump in the water and swim forward until you see land.  
Jump on the floating ground and get the second Dragon Coin at the middle of the 
platform.  Now, a Porcupuffer will appear in the water preventing you from 
swimming the rest of the level.  Hop across the dolphins and get the Cape from 
the '?' block near the dolphin jumping vertically.  Now back on land, get the 
extra life from the star block, and jump across the next set of dolphins making 
sure you get the Check Point under the third dolphin.

---Check Point---

Hop on the tall platform and get the third Dragon Coin between the two dolphins 
jumping vertically.  Jump on the second tall platform and wait until a bunch of 
dolphins start hopping towards the right.  Jump on one of the dolphins moving 
forward and enjoy your ride!  Make sure you dodge the Porcupuffer if you fall 
and get the fourth Dragon Coin the middle of the third set of coins.  When you 
reach the end, get the fifth Dragon Coin and enter the green pipe to enter the 
next area.  The sixth Dragon Coin is above the pipe to the right.  Get the coin 
and run through the End Marker to complete the level.  Good Job!!  You beat 
Vanilla Secret 3!!

GO TO: Vanilla Fortress




Vanilla Fortress (VF)
---------------------
Difficulty: 4.5/10 | Brother: Mario | Dragon Coins: 5 | Time: 300
Enemies: Ball 'n' Chain, Bony Beetle, Dry Bones, Fishbone, Renzor

This is your first Fortress, but this one is underwater.  Having two Capes is 
strongly recommended as it can be used to kill the enemies.

You will pop out of an orange pipe underwater and start the level.  Swim 
forward; dodging the three Ball 'n' Chain and the three Fishbone until you see 
the stone ground with yellow spikes facing up.  Carefully swim above the spikes 
dodging the Fishbone attacking you.  Get the Cape from the '?' block, kill the 
Fishbone with a swing of your cape, and keep swimming forward.  In this area, 
Bony Beetles, Dry Bones, and Fishbone will be attacking you.  The ceiling has 
yellow spikes, and the brown ones fall on your head.  Carefully swim across the 
danger zone making sure you get the first Dragon Coin above the first Dry 
Bones.  Enter the blue pipe to enter the next area.  From here, go left and get 
the second Dragon Coin under the Thwomp.  Keep going left making sure you dodge 
the Dry Bones and the Chain 'n' Ball until you see a small flight of stairs.  
Swim down the stairs, dodge the Thwomp, Bony Beetles and the Fishbone, and grab 
the Cape from the '?' block.  Now, swim up the gap to the right of the next 
Thwomp and get the Check Point on the upper stone platform.

---Check Point---

Dragon Coin.  Dodge one more Ball 'n' Chain and Fishbone then fall down the gap 
to land on the lower ground.  Go towards the left to grab the fourth Dragon 
Coin near the Thwomp and the Dry Bones.  Go back right, dodge the Fishbone, 
Ball 'n' Chains, and the Dry Bones, and get the last Dragon Coin near the right 
wall.  Swim to the upper ground, avoid the Bony Beetles and the Fishbone, get 
the mushroom and enter The Boss battle via red gate.  (Find: VDRZR)  Nice Job!! 
You finished your first fortress!!

GO TO: Butter Bridge 1




Lemmy's Castle #3 (LC3)
-----------------------
Difficulty: 5/10 | Brother: Mario | Dragon Coins: 5 | Time: 400
Enemies: Dry Bones, Fireballs, MagiKoopa


Your third Castle will not be an easy one.  The MagiKoopas will prove to be a 
big pain, while the moving blocks in the second area will cause you to fall.  I 
require you to have two Capes before you start this level.

You will start on a line of yellow bricks near the top.  Immediately, a 
MagiKoopa will appear on the lower level of bricks and will try to curse you.  
Run forward, and when you get stopped by the stone block, spin jump to break 
the yellow bricks and fall down to the lower level.  Because you are still spin 
jumping, you must move forward and land on the stone ground, or you will land 
in the lava.  Get the '?' block towards your left to get the Cape and head back 
right.  When you see the yellow bricks above the pool of water, start to hop 
across them, trying not to fall in the pool.  Grab the 'P' block, get ONLY the 
first two coins when you see the hovering door, and step on the 'P' switch on 
stable land (not the floating platforms).  When the coins turn into brown 
bricks, quickly jump and enter the yellow door.  In this area, get the Check 
Point and keep moving forward.

---Check Point---

Get the extra life from the yellow brick and enter the next area through the 
yellow door.  In here, the stone blocks floating in lava will slowly sink down 
and rise up.  Run forward until you see the first lava pool.  When the blocks 
rise up, grab the first Dragon Coin, and quickly hop across the blocks before 
they sink down again.  Back on stable ground, kill the Dry Bones, and hop 
across the small lava pit when the blocks are up.  Quickly run across the stone 
ground before the stone block crushes you and hop across another small lava pit 
dodging the fireball.  Kill another Dry Bones and wait until the blocks are 
completely up.  Jump onto the next set of moving blocks, quickly get the second 
Dragon Coin in mid-air, dodge the jumping Fireball, and jump on the next set of 
stable blocks.  Kill the Dry Bones to your right and wait until the moving 
stone blocks are up again.  Hop across the two small blocks floating in the 
lava, making sure you get the third Dragon Coin, and jump to the next set of 
stable blocks.  When the stone blocks are up again, hop across the lava pit, 
dodge the jumping Fireball, and get the cape on the lower ground.  As you 
notice, the slab of ground where the cape was is safe, so there is no need to 
move back until the blocks are up again.  Hop back to the upper ground and 
stand on the first stone step when the blocks descend.  When the blocks start 
to move up, slowly walk across the steps.  Be careful not to fall in the lava, 
and to get the fourth Dragon Coin on the lowest step of the staircase.  Jump 
onto the next stable block, hop across the lava pit with the jumping Fireball, 
and kill the Dry Bones between four stable stone blocks.  Hop on the moving 
platform when the block moves down, jump onto the upper stone platform, and 
kill the two Dry Bones walking back and fourth.  When the blocks move down, 
jump on the second moving stone block, kill the Dry Bones on the stable block, 
and jump onto the third moving block.  When the blocks are at its maximum 
height, slowly drop down the block's edge to get the last Dragon Coin.  From 
here, quickly jump to the stable stone block using the dent in the moving block 
as support.  Walk down the short flight of stone stairs, get the Cape from the 
green '!' block and enter the red gate to fight Lemmy.

Boss Battle: Lemmy
------------------
The only danger in this boss battle is the moving fireball that bounces all 
over the place, so dodge it at all costs.  Shortly, three figures will pop out 
of three of the seven pipes.  Ignore the 'Koopas' that are blue (decoys), and 
jump on the one that has a yellow spiked shell (Lemmy).  Every time you hit 
Lemmy, the figures will move in and out of the pipes faster.  There is no 
punishment if you hit the decoys, but you lose time from the Boss battle.  Jump 
on Lemmy twice more to make him fall in the lava pit below you and beat Castle 
# 3.  Nice Job!!  You beat the Vanilla Dome World!!

GO TO: Cheese Bridge Area





**************************
World 4: The Bridge Levels
**************************


Cheese Bridge Area (CBA)
------------------------
Difficulty: 3.5/10 | Brother: Luigi | Dragon Coins: 11 (8 max) | Time: 300
Enemies: Bullet Bill, Chainsaw, Fuzzy 


This is your first level on the bridge!  Here, you will be sailing across brown 
platforms, climbing yellow ropes, and dodging Chainsaws.  There are also THREE 
exits. (Two normal and one secret)  If you use the alternate exit, you can exit 
the level anytime by falling down or losing your Yoshi.

You will begin on a sturdy bridge made up of wooden logs with no immediate 
danger.  Run forward and get the Cape from the '?' block; you will need it in 
this level. *** Now jump on the brown platform to start to move forward on the 
black wire.  When you see the Chainsaw moving towards you, jump on the brown 
platform above you.  Another Chainsaw will try to chop you in half, so dodge it 
by jumping on a third brown platform.  Now that all three platforms are moving 
forward, hop back down on the first brown platform, and spin jump to dodge 
another Chainsaw.  Grab the first Dragon Coin above the black wire when yet 
another Chainsaw tries to grind you down.  When you see the '?' block near the 
uppermost wire, jump on the third brown platform, and quickly get the Cape from 
the block.  Grab the second Dragon Coin when another Chainsaw tries to chop 
you.  Now jump on the lower platform making sure you dodge the Chainsaws.  Your 
platform will enter a strange series of loops.  When the looping ends, dodge 
that Chainsaw, and get the third Dragon Coin before the platform falls.  Jump 
on the second platform and dodge the last Chainsaw to land on another wooden 
bridge.  Hop on the '?' block and jump up towards the left to get the Check 
Point in mid-air. &&&

---Check Point---

Now you will see a line of yellow string hanging from a blue motor.  Grab the 
string to move forward.  Jump down the wooden bridge platforms and get the Cape 
from the '?' block.  Ignore the next yellow string, get the fourth Dragon Coin, 
and head down the blue pipe.  Here, every 5-6 seconds, four Bullet Bills will 
emerge from nowhere trying to kill you; so watch your step.  Hop across the 
mushroom platforms until you see the moving white ones.  Dodging the Bullet 
Bills, hop across the platforms and exit via blue pipe.  Emerging from the 
yellow pipe, hop across the wooden platforms and climb on the yellow string.  
Many Chainsaws will be moving on separate lines of strings, so you must move up 
and down to dodge them efficiently.  Dodge the first two Chainsaws by climbing 
down and up respectively.  Dodge the next two by moving down and up again, and 
get the fifth Dragon Coin above the fourth Chainsaw.  Stay up to dodge the last 
four Chainsaws and jump to the End Marker when the yellow string falls.  Great 
Job!!  You completed your first bridge level!!

Alternate Exit:

You need a Yoshi if you want to use this exit.  Hit the '?' block, and jump 
with the Yoshi to the pair of floating wings to shoot up in the sky.  Welcome 
to Dragon Coin Heaven!!  Here you will find many yellow coins, six Dragon 
Coins, and sadly, Fuzzies circling around brown bricks trying to stop you.  You 
will start on a bridge; fly forward and get the fourth Dragon Coin near the 
first Fuzzy.  The fifth Dragon Coin will be just right of the fourth one; so 
dodge the Fuzzies and grab the coin.  Now, as you descend, dodge more Fuzzies 
by flying through the middle, or by hopping off their heads.  When you rise 
again, get the sixth dragon coin to your left, and the seventh and eight ones 
between the barricade of Fuzzies and brown bricks.  Now as you descend for the 
last time, you will see an arrow of brown bricks pointing down.  Drop down the 
sky to beat the level.  Good Job!! You beat Cheese Bridge Area!

Secret Exit:

When you get the cape, you will need to run all the way back to start, because 
you will need the bridge to run fast enough to fly.  Run forward and fly up to 
the right before you fall down the pit.  Fly across the level, making sure you 
are flying so high that you are out of sight. If you are flying high and fast 
enough, you will pass over the End Marker.  Do not go back and hit this End 
Marker, as you will not find the secret!  Jump across the mushroom platforms to 
the right, get the moon crescent to get 3-up, and pass through the second End 
Marker to beat the level. Excellent Job!! You are on the way to Soda Lake!!

Normal Exit - GO TO: Cookie Mountain
Secret Exit - GO TO: Soda Lake




Soda Lake (SL)
--------------
Difficulty: 5.5/10 | Brother: Mario | Dragon Coins: 5 | Time: 300
Enemies: Blurp, Torpedo Ted


This is the only (and most annoying) water level of World 4.  Expect to get hit 
(or even die) several times before you beat it.  This level has no Check Point. 
Having two Fire Flowers and a Yoshi is strongly recommended.

You will emerge from a silver pipe and land underwater on stone ground.  Swim 
up towards the right, dodging the two Blurps and the Torpedo Ted.  As you move 
forward, dodge two more Blurps and get the Fire Flower from the '?' block.  
Dive down to dodge two more Torpedo Teds and the single Blurp, and get the 
coins shortly after.  Carefully grab the first Dragon Coin between the two 
Torpedo Teds, and land on the stone platforms and take a short rest.  Now, 
dodge the four Blurps, and keep moving forward until you reach the end of the 
stone ground.  Carefully move forward, and get the second Dragon Coin guarded 
by the Torpedo Ted near the wall.  Dive down to dodge another Torpedo Ted and a 
Blurp.  Swim to the right, dodge the four Blurps swimming to the left and get 
the third Dragon Coin in the large stone pit.  Don't move to fast, or you will 
be hit by a Blurp or a Torpedo Ted!!  This part is very tricky, so expect to 
lose your Yoshi or power up.  As carefully as you can, dive down, move forward, 
and try to dodge all four Torpedo Teds.  When you pass this danger zone, dodge 
three Blurps and get the fourth Dragon Coin near the Torpedo Ted near the sea 
floor.  As you proceed, three more Torpedo Teds will appear.  Quickly get the 
last Dragon Coin above the second Torpedo Ted and dodge the seven Blurps 
swimming towards you.  Keep moving forward, dodging three more Torpedo Teds and 
Blurps, until you see the green pipe sticking out of the wall.  Enter the green 
pipe, and run through the End Marker.  Good Job!!  You beat Soda Lake!!

GO TO: Star Road 3




Cookie Mountain (CKM)
---------------------
Difficulty: 5/10 | Brother: Mario | Dragon Coins: 5 | Time: 300
Enemies: Chargin' Chuck, Jumping Piranha, Koopa, Monty Mole, Porcupuffer, Sumo 
Brother


In this level, tons of Monty Moles will pop out of the ground and walls when 
you least expect it.  You need to be fairly skilled to beat this level without 
getting hit.  Having a Yoshi and two Capes is strongly recommended.

You will start on the ground with a shelless Koopa flying towards you.  When 
the Koopa lands, kill it, and walk up the slanted cliff.  As you do, two Monty 
Moles will pop out of the ground and try to attack you.  Because you are on the 
cliff, they cannot hurt you, so jump past the gap and you will see a Sumo 
Brother stomping on a line of '?' blocks.  Jump on the blocks, kill the Sumo 
Brother with a whip of your cape, and get the Cape from the single '?' block 
above you.  Dodge the Monty Mole and jump over the gap.  Three shelless Koopas 
will slide down the cliffs, so jump on their heads when they land, and get the 
first Dragon Coin above the second slanted cliff.  Now pick up the red shell, 
climb to the upper ledge, and wait until four Monty Moles pop out of the 
ground.  Throw the shell to kill the moles and get 1500 points.  Walk down the 
four ledges, run forward and stop when you see a pair of red '!' blocks.  Jump 
across the gap and quickly jump on the blue pipe to dodge the six Monty Moles. 
Jump across the gap, and run across the small pit.  You will see a pair of Sumo 
Brothers on a long line of note blocks.  When the fire dissipates, run across 
the pit, dodge the Sumo Bros, and also dodge the single Monty Mole near the 
green bush.  As you continue walking forward, jump through the Check Point 
above the green pipe with the Jumping Piranha.

---Check Point---

Five Monty Moles will soon pop out of the giant walls and the ground, so watch 
your step when you cross this area.  Hit the third yellow brick, when you see a 
line of four yellow bricks, to reveal a green plant.  Climb the plant, grab the 
third Dragon Coin to the right, and jump on the tall cliff to the left.  Hit 
the lone yellow brick near the middle of the cliff to get an extra life.  Jump 
back down to the right, dodge any remaining Monty Moles, and hop past the blue 
pipe.  Dodge the Monty Mole and get the Yoshi from the '?' block above the line 
of red '!' blocks.  Dodge six more Monty Moles and get the fourth Dragon Coin 
on the tallest cliff.  Hop across the gap and get a Cape from the shifting 
block.  Walk forward and kill the Jumping Piranha (now throwing fireballs) from 
the middle white pipe.  Get the final Dragon Coin over the line of green '!' 
blocks and stop when you see the two Sumo Brothers on the two lines of '?' 
blocks.  Kill the lower Sumo Brother, get the cape from the third '?' block on 
the first line, and then kill the other Sumo Brother.  Run forward, kill the 
jumping Chargin' Chuck, and run through the End Marker when you pass the blue 
pipe and the single yellow brick.  Wonderful!!  You beat Cookie Mountain!

Butter Bridge 1 (BB1)
---------------------
Difficulty: 4.5/10 | Brother: Luigi | Dragon Coins: 5 | Time: 300
Enemies: Flying Koopa


This is another one of those automatic scrolling levels.  Having two capes and 
a Yoshi is not only recommended but required to get all of the Dragon Coins 
easily and safely.  There is no Check Point in this level.

You will start on mushroom platform near a bridge.  Run forward, trying to stay 
in the middle of the screen, and walk along the bridge.  Hop onto the very tiny 
mushroom platform,  this will cause the platform you are standing on to fall 
and the one next to it to rise.  This falling and rising rule applies to all of 
these platforms in this level (called RF platforms).  Quickly cross the first 
three platforms, dodge the Flying Koopa, and hop on the fourth RF platform.  
Jump on the gray platform to get the first Dragon Coin.  These gray platforms 
fall immediately when you touch them, so you have cross them very quickly.  
Jump past a RF platform, a gray platform and yet another RF platform.  Here, 
you must jump to the hovering three logs by hopping off the Flying Koopa.  So 
when the Flying Koopa drops down, hop off of it to the three logs, making sure 
you grab the second Dragon Coin.  Hop across the RF platform, grab the third 
Dragon Coin, and hop on the Flying Koopa (green) above the second RF platform. 
Carefully, but quickly hop across the line of Flying Koopas until you reach the 
end of the bridge and get the extra life.  Hop across four more RF platforms, 
and STOP on the fifth one.  As the screen moves down, grab the fourth Dragon 
Coin, and glide to the seventh RF platform to your right.  Jump past the next 
RF platform and the mushroom platform, then land on the wooden bridge below the 
line of yellow bricks.  Get the Cape from the '?' block, and climb up the lines 
of bricks when the screen starts moving up.  When the screen moves right again, 
jump past the two RF platforms and the Flying Koopa and land on the gray 
platform to get fifth Dragon Coin.  As the screen moves down, hop down the 
lines of wooden logs, dodge all of the Flying Koopas, and stop when you see the 
mushroom platform.  Ignore the help block, get the extra life from the star 
block, and head down the blue pipe.  Exiting from a green pipe, jump to the End 
Marker to complete the level.  Great Job!!  You beat Butter Bridge 1!!

GO TO: Butter Bridge 2




Butter Bridge 2 (BB2)
---------------------
Difficulty: 6/10 | Brother: Mario | Dragon Coins: 5 | Time: 300
Enemies: Koopa, Super Koopa (both types)


This is the hardest level in The Bridge Levels.  I require you to have two 
Capes and a Yoshi before attempting this level.  The placement of the last 
Dragon Coin will cause you some trouble when trying to safely get it.

You will start on a long wooden bridge with a Super Koopa charging towards you. 
Kill the Koopa, and carefully walk to the right.  Grab the Cape from the second 
Super Koopa, and jump past the gap to the line of six wooden logs.  Kill the 
shelless Koopa, jump past another gap, and grab the green shell.  Dodge two 
more Super Koopas, and throw the shell at the '?' block revealing a Cape.  Grab 
the power up and walk to the left until you reach the end of the bridge.  From 
here, run forward and fly up towards the right, and land when you see the line 
of clouds.  Get the first Dragon Coin above the clouds and drop towards the 
left.  As you drop down, tilt towards the right to prevent falling in the gap.  
Here, you need to use the Super Koopas as "stepping stones" to get the second 
Dragon Coin.  If you choose to get this Dragon Coin, do not fall down, as the 
bridge below you has small, but many gaps.  So slowly move forward as you jump 
on the Super Koopas, and get the coin after you hop across four Koopas.  Float 
down to the "unbroken" bridge and slowly walk forward.  When you see the 
shelless Koopa and a red shell above you, immediately jump to avoid getting 
hit.  Dodge two more kicked shells and Super Koopas, and get the Cape from the 
second one.  The last tow shells will be kicked at the same time, so dodge the 
two shells, and grab the third Dragon Coin near the upper shelless Koopa.  Run 
across the long wooden bridge and jump through the Check Point.

---Check Point---

After you pass the Check Point, red caped Super Koopas will constantly swoop 
down to attack you.  If you want to survive this level, you must constantly 
jump to avoid them.  Kill the lonely shelless Koopa on the wooden bridge and 
jump to the upper ledge with three logs.  Kill the shelless Koopa below you, 
grab the Cape from the green '!' block, and jump on the first blue pipe.  Jump 
past the wooden platform and head down the second blue pipe.  You will fall 
down on a light-orange colored platform and start to move along the wire.  
Immediately climb on the yellow rope to make the motor move forward.  Climb up 
and won, getting as many coins as you can, and get the fourth Dragon Coin on 
the small wooden platform.  Hop on the light-orange platform, and go through 
the blue pipe at the end of this small area.  From now to the End Marker, 
hundreds of Super Koopas will swoop down, this makes it very hard to not get 
hit, so be very careful.  Run across the wooden bridge, and hop across the 
wooden platforms killing the shelless Koopas.  Stop when you see the fourth 
Dragon Coin above a gap.  When a Super Koopa flies below the coin, immediately 
jump using the Super Koopa as support, grab the last Dragon Coin, and land on 
the wooden bridge to the right.  This may take several tries for many people, 
so don't get frustrated over this trick.  As you walk forward, jump over the 
five Super Koopas flying towards you at the same time, and jump to the End 
Marker to finish the level.  Nice Job!!  You finished the hardest level in The 
Bridge Levels!!

GO TO: Ludwig's Castle #4




Ludwig's Castle #4 (LC4)
------------------------
Difficulty: 5/10 | Brother: Mario | Dragon Coins: 5 | Time: 300
Enemies: Ball 'n' Chain, Bony Beetle, Fireball, Koopa, Ludwig


Welcome to Ludwig's Castle!!  This castle can be quite a pain because getting 
all of the Dragon Coins under 300 seconds is hard.  Having two Fire Flowers is 
strongly recommended because you are bound to get hit in the third area.

You will start on a long stone platform with little ceiling room.  Run forward, 
drop down to the lower level, and swing your cape to kill the Bony Beetle.  If 
you quickly run forward and touch the stone brick without jumping, the Ball 'n' 
Chain will not hurt you.  When the Ball 'n' Chain heads down, quickly hop up 
the stone blocks, jump past the stone ground, and land on the long stone ground 
with the Bony Beetle.  Use your cape to kill the Beetle, and run forward, 
making sure you dodge the five spinning Ball 'n' Chains.  When you see the 
yellow gate and the mushroom, get the mushroom if needed, ignore the gate and 
head left.  Look at the ceiling for a second; you will notice that one section 
of the ceiling is composed of a small square stone.  Run directly underneath 
the stone, jump to soar past the ceiling, and land on the top of the ceiling to 
the right.  Now run right, hop up the stone staircase, and plunge down the 
green pipe on the highest step. (Refer to Bonus Game #1) In this second area, 
you will notice that the ceiling, composed of yellow spikes, is slowly falling 
down.  To avoid getting crushed, make sure that your jumps are short, and you 
run instead of walking.  Head left, run down the moving escalator and jump past 
the first lava pit.  Grab the first Dragon Coin above you, jump across the 
second lava pit, and keep moving left.  You will see an 'ON' switch.  So when 
the spikes touch the top of the switch, hit the switch to change the direction 
of the moving ceiling.  Kill the Bony Beetle, get the second Dragon Coin to the 
left of the switch and run left.  Kill another Bony Beetle, and quickly jump 
across four lava pits, but don't get hit by the fireballs.  After the last pit, 
run as fast as you can and pray to God that you reach the end of the run before 
the spikes crush you.  When you see the yellow gate, enter it to get to the 
final area before the Boss.  In this area, run to the right and jump to get the 
Check Point in the small room.

---Check Point---

Head back to where you started and jump to climb the fence above you.  Walk 
straight up, take the right at the fork, kill the climbing Koopa and jump to 
the stone ground to your right.  Grab the Cape from the '?' block, go back on 
the fence, and move up again.  When you are above the platform of yellow 
spikes, jump straight up to climb another fence.  Kill the Koopa, jump to the 
third fence, and use the pivoting section of fence to get to the other side.  
Kill the climbing Koopa and get the third Dragon Coin to the right.  Carefully 
jump to the stone platform to your right, but avoid getting hit by the yellow 
spikes.  Use fireballs to kill as many climbing Koopas as you can to your left, 
and then jump past the two grates.  The fourth Dragon Coin will be a tad tricky 
to get, so don't be surprised if you lose your power up.  Locate the coin 
surrounded by yellow spikes, then drop down to get the coin.  After getting the 
Dragon Coin, start to jump straight up the small sections of fences, but dodge 
the climbing Koopas.  When you reach the large grate, start to climb straight 
up until you can see the '?' block above you.  Hit the block to reveal a Fire 
Flower, get the power up, and continue climbing left.  Hop to the long grate to 
the left of you, but be careful, as this grate is crawling with climbing 
Koopas.  Climb up, kill the two crawling Koopas, and get the last Dragon Coin 
above the yellow spiked platform to your left.  Grab the grate near the left 
wall, hop up to the grate above you, and kill the climbing Koopa.  Head up, 
jump on the stone platform to your right, and enter the red gate to fight 
Ludwig.

Boss Battle: Ludwig
-------------------
Ludwig is quite an easy boss if you can easily dodge his fireballs.  On the 
bridge, head right until you encounter Ludwig.  When you see him, he will start 
to spit four fireballs at you.  This is the only time he can get hit, so jump 
on his head right before he spits out his third fireball.  If you hit him, or 
if he throws four fireballs at you, he will transform into a shell and start to 
chase you.  Dodge him, and after three attempt of trying to knock you out, 
Ludwig will jump to the far left or right. (Depending on where you stand) 
Repeat this twice to kill him and send hi flying out of the court.  Nice Job!! 
You finished the Bridge levels and beat Ludwig!!

Forest of Illusion 1 (FI1)
--------------------------
Difficulty: 4/10 | Brother: Mario | Dragon Coins: 5 | Time: 300
Enemies: Amazing Flyin' Hammer Brother, Flying Koopa, Goomba, Koopa, Wiggler


This is the first level in the fifth World!!  Here, you will have your first 
encounter with Wigglers and enemies that burst out of yellow brick.  You should 
have two Fire Flowers and a Yoshi, if you want to use the extra live trick.

You will start under a pair of trees with a Wiggler walking in your direction. 
Eat (or jump on) it, and get the first Dragon Coin hidden behind the tree, to 
the top. Running forward, kill the Wiggler, hop over the gap, and land on the 
ground with the red Koopa, the yellow brick, and the '?' block.  Kill the 
Koopa, and get the Fire Flower from the '?' block using the yellow brick as 
support.  Hop across the three small platforms, but make sure you throw 
fireballs at the Koopas before you start to jump.  From the last platform, jump 
on the high ground, get the Yoshi from the '?' block, and eat the Wiggler 
walking towards you.  As you walk forward, eat two Goombas, one Flying Goomba, 
and another Wiggler.  When you see the green trampoline, hold it in Yoshi's 
mouth and jump across the large gap.  Back on lower ground, spit out the 
trampoline so it lands under the first Dragon Coin, eat the Wiggler, and hop on 
the trampoline to get the coin near the line of note blocks.  Hit the yellow 
brick to reveal an extra life that will start to move on the note blocks.  When 
the green mushroom is over a note block, hit that block to make the mushroom 
fly towards the right, and grab the mushroom before it falls in the gap.  When 
you land on the upper ground, run forward past the six trees, get the third 
Dragon Coin between the trees, and dodge the three Wigglers.  Jump back to the 
lower ground, run forward, and jump to the Check Point above the small gap.

---Check Point---

Kill the red Koopa and get the star from the shifting block.  In this area, 
enemies will break out of yellow bricks and try to attack you.  When you 
initially jump past the gap, grab the fourth Dragon Coin hidden behind the tree 
stump.  After getting the coin, jump past the gap, and run forward trying to 
hit as many enemies as possible.  Jump past two gaps and land on a bumpy 
bridge.  Ignore the keyhole below you for now, and run past the bridge.  Again, 
to get as many lives as possible, try to hit all the enemies that pop out of 
the bricks.  Grab the fifth Dragon Coin near the end of the bridge and drop 
down to the small platform with the '?' block below you. *** Jump past the gap, 
kill two more Wigglers for four extra lives, and jump past the gap onto the 
green pipe.  Here, an Amazing Flyin' Hammer Brother will try to kill by 
throwing hammers.  So, dodge the hammers, kill the Wiggler, and get the sixth 
Dragon Coin near the tall wall.  Kill the Amazing Flyin' Hammer Brother and use 
his platform to hop to the tall wall.  Jump past the gap and into the End 
Marker to finish the level.  Great Job!!  You finished Forest of Illusion 1!

Secret Exit:

Standing on the small platform, run to the left and hit the '?' block to 
release a 'P' balloon.  Jump into the balloon, and start floating under the 
bridge to the left.  Dodge the single Flying Koopa, and hover over the small 
platform with the keyhole until you fall down.  Hit the '?' block to reveal a 
key, and then put the key into the keyhole to complete the level.  Great Job!! 
You found the secret to this level!

Welcome to the only water level in this world!  Because you have only 300

ground when you pass it.  When the second Urchin is at the top, drop down, swim 
to the right, and kill another Blurp.  Swim past the upper cliff, dodge five 
Blurps, and swim up the long gap when the Urchin is resting to the right.  Hug 
the right wall, and swim to the blue brick when the Urchin is to the left.  Use 
the brick to kill that Urchin, and get the first Dragon Coin near the left 
wall.  Head back right and swim up the gap when the Urchin is down.  Swim 
forward and stop when you see another Urchin.  Here, the Urchins will be 
circling the stone blocks.  This means that when you want to proceed, you must 
swim in the same direction the Urchin is rotating.  Now, swim down the right 
gap when the Urchin is to the right and at the second set of gaps swim down the 
left one when the second Urchin is to the right.  Dodge the few Blurps that may 
swim from the left side, and keep swimming forward.  Grab the blue brick and 
use it to kill the lone Blurp swimming from the right.  Swim straight up, dodge 
the three Guppies and the Blurp, and get the Fire Flower from the '?' block at 
the top.  Swim right, pass the gap, and kill the Blurp using fireballs.  Dodge 
the two Urchins, kill the Rip Van Fish, and get the second Dragon Coin.  Swim 
back left, dodge the two Urchins, and fall down the first gap.  When you are 
all the way down, swim forward, kill the Rip Van Fish and the Blurps, and pass 
the moving Urchin.  The gap above you is blocked by hidden blocks; do not try 
to go up there yet.  Swim right, kill the Rip Van Fish, and get the third 
Dragon Coin.  Heading back to the left, hit only the first two invisible 
blocks, and let the extra life from the second block fall to the ground.  Get 
the extra life and swim back left to the wall.  Swim up the gap and swim onto 
the middle platform.  Dodge three Urchins and swim through the small Check 
Point gate.

---Check Point---

Carefully swim past the gap, dodge the Blurp, and fall down the second gap.  
Quickly swim up to the right, dodge the three Urchins and the Rip Van Fish, and 
grab the blue brick.  Swim through the narrow passage, dodge the first Urchin, 
and grab the fourth Dragon Coin in the small pit.  When the second Urchin is 
down, swim up the gap and forward.  Dodge two more Urchins as you fall down the 
right gap, and kill the Blurp and the Rip Van Fish when you land.  Dodge 
another Urchin as you fall down the gap, and land on the lower ground. *** From 
here to the End Marker, Rip Van fish will be pursuing you, so you must move 
quickly.  Swim forward and dodge the fish until you see the stone block on the 
ground.  Stand on the block, swim straight up to get the last Dragon Coin, and 
keep swimming forward.  Ignore the Calling Chargin' Chuck and swim to the End 
Marker.  Nice Job!!  You finished the water level in World 5!!

yellow coins that are below the line of bricks.  When you see the green pipe, 
go back to the start and press the gray 'P' switch to turn the Spinies into 
silver coins.  Now, step on the blue 'P' switch to turn the bricks into coins, 
and to allow the silver coins to fall to the ground.  Quickly run to the right,

have gotten three extra lives.  Enter the green pipe to enter the second area, 
run to the right, and press the giant blue switch near the right wall.  Nice

falls down, pick it up, and bring it to the tall yellow pipe.  Use the 
trampoline to hop across the two pipes, and eat the Bobombs and the Goomba when 
they pop from the bubble.  Grab the second Dragon Coin from the air, jump 
across the gap, and run across the ground.  As you run, dodge the enemies from 
the bubbles, and hit the Check Point under the two yellow bricks.

---Check Point---

From here, hop across the gap, and get the mushroom from the bubble before you 
land on the ground.  Jump on the yellow pipe, and jump across the gap to the 
other pipe making sure you get the third Dragon Coin.  Hop past the gap to the 
upper ground, dodge the bubbled enemies, and jump past another gap to the 
highest ground.  Hop across the green pipe, and get 10 coins from the upper '?' 
block.  Run forward, dodge the various enemies in the bubbles, and get the 
fourth Dragon Coin above the fifth '?' block (From the scattered '?' blocks).

out of the bubbles.  Get the coins from the '?' blocks, hop across the yellow 
pipe and the gap, and run through the End Marker.  Nice Job!!  You dodged all 
of the bubbles and beat the third level!!

Enemies: Boo, Big Boo, Eerie


Welcome to the Ghost House of World 5!  This level is not hard, but the second 
area may pose some trouble to you if you are bad at dodging Boos.

You will start between two platforms with little headroom.  Run past the Big 
Boo and the two Boos, and stop when you enter the very small pit.  Face towards 
the left (to prevent the Boos from chasing you), and duck to avoid the floating 
Eerie.  Now jump in the larger pit, and face the left wall to lure the Big Boo 
towards you.  When the Boo is up, quickly run underneath it, and jump out of 
the pit to level ground.  Run forward, ignore the two Boos, and drop down into 
another small pit with a pair of Boos.  Again, lure the Boos to the left, but

switch.  With the switch, jump into the second pit (not the one with the yellow 
gate), and hit the switch, quickly run to your right and enter the blue gate to 
re-enter the first area.  You will appear on top of the upper line of bricks.  
Head left and dodge the three Eeries that will chase you. *** Jump across the 
bumpy cliffs, dodge the Boos, and enter the yellow gate when it appears.

block.  Hop over another gap, get the coins from the '?' block, and kill the 
Lakitu as you jump over the pipe.  Get the second Dragon Coin under the yellow 
brick and the Fire Flower from the fourth '?' block, and kill the Lakitu inside 
the yellow pipe.  When the flying Lakitu appears, Use your star power to kill

and get the last Dragon Coin between the pipes.  Jump past the second pipe, 
kill the snapping Chargin' Chuck, and run through the End Marker.  Nice Job!!  
You beat Forest of Illusion 4!

Secret Exit:

Wait a few seconds until the Lakitu throws a Spiny to the ground.  Spin jump on 
the Spiny to get a boost, and land on the blue pipe.  Kill the Lakitu and enter 
the pipe to land in the chamber.  Put the key into the keyhole to beat the 
level.  Nice Job!  You found the secret exit!!

Normal Exit - GO TO: Forest Secret Area
Secret Exit - GO TO: Forest of Illusion 2




Forest Secret Area (FSA)
------------------------
Difficulty: 3/10 | Brother: Luigi | Dragon Coins: x | Time: 300
Enemies: Flying Koopa


This is by far the easiest level in World 5. (Hold the Blue Switch Palace) To 
get the three secret extra lives, you need a blue Yoshi.  There is no Check 
Point in this level.  Having a cape makes this level much easier.

You will start on a brown cliff with two flying platforms to the right. (The 
ones that the Amazing Flyin' Hammer Brothers use) Jump on the first platform, 
and both will start to move forward, but in opposite directions.  When the 
platform is at its highest point, kill the upper red Flying Koopa.  As you 
descend, duck to avoid the three Flying Koopas, and get the first Dragon Coin 
near the bottom.  Stay on the first platform, ignore the '?' block as you rise, 
and grab the second Dragon coin when the platform is at its highest point.  
Dodge the two red Flying Koopas and get the Fire Flower from the '?' block at 
the bottom.  Kill the lone green Flying Koopa, duck to dodge four more Flying 
Koopas as the platform rises, and grab the third Dragon Coin when the platform 
is at its high point.  Spin jump to kill the two flying Koopas as you descend, 
and jump to the second platform when it appears near the line of blue '!' 
blocks.  Ignore the blocks, kill another Flying Koopa, and get the fourth 
Dragon Coin at the platform's highest point.  Now jump on the line of blue '!' 
blocks, get the extra life from the yellow brick, and jump on the first 
platform when it rises near the blocks.  Shortly after the highest point, grab 
the last Dragon Coin, and jump on the brown cliff with the arrow.  Run through 
the End Market to complete the level.  Nice Job!!  You beat Forest of Illusion 
Secret!

The three secret extra lives:

You may have noticed that three extra lives were past the End Marker, but they 
disappeared when you finished the level.  The only way to get these extra lives 
is to use a blue Yoshi (explained later).  If you obtained a blue Yoshi, eat a 
shell, and fly forward as high as you can.  If you are off the screen, you 
should pass over the End Marker without actually ending the level.  Simply drop 
down, grab the three extra lives, and run through the End Marker to beat the 
level.  Great!!  You got the three secret extra lives!!

GO TO: Forest Fortress




Forest Fortress (FF)
--------------------
Difficulty: 6/10 | Brother: Mario | Dragon Coins: 5 | Time: 300
Enemies: Falling Log, Fireball, Grinder


The Forest Fortress will be hard if you did not master spin jumping.  If you 
want to use the Alternative exit and get nine extra lives, have two capes and 
use Luigi instead of Mario.

In this first area, you will be automatically pushed along a stone ground with 
falling log.  Quickly run to the left and jump up to get the first Dragon Coin 
before it disappears to the left.  Dodge the first falling log, run into the 
small pit, and duck.  When the second log falls, jump out of the pit, dodge the 
Grinder moving along the rectangular path, and fall in the second pit.  Duck to 
the right of the pit to dodge the second moving Grinder.  When you are not in 
danger, quickly hop to the right to get the second Dragon Coin, and duck back 
in the pit to dodge the falling log.  Now, jump out of the pit, dodge another 
Grinder, and dodge the falling log by staying to the right of the line of blue 
'!' blocks.  Dodge another Grinder, run past the blue and red '!' blocks, and 
stay left to dodge the falling log.  Run past another Grinder near the yellow 
'!' blocks and stop when you see the line of green '!' blocks.  Dodging the 
Grinder, spin jump to get the third Dragon Coin, and duck on the green '!' 
blocks to dodge the falling log.  Now the level will stop moving forward and 
you will see the yellow gate to the right.  Simply dodge the Grinder above the 
blue '!' blocks and enter the yellow gate to enter the next area.  When you 
appear in this area, a single Grinder will fall down from the right, and will 
move towards you.  Spin jump to dodge the Grinder and run through the Check 
point under the stone block.

---Check Point---

Spin jump past the small lava pit with two fireballs and climb the small flight 
of steps.  Time yourself to jump in the pit without getting hit by the moving 
Grinders.  Spin jump yourself across the pit, run up the wall, and get the 
mushroom from the yellow '!' block.  You will notice that there is the fourth 
Dragon Coin over the pit.  Again, time yourself to get the coin and to dodge 
the moving Grinders, and run back up the wall to safety.  Spin jump across the 
long lava pit to dodge the two fireballs, and stop when you see the pit 
composed of stone blocks.  Here, fireballs will shoot out of the pit, and 
Grinders will move along the bottom of the pit.  Use the stone blocks suspended 
in mid air to dodge the fireballs and avoid the Grinders.  Hop across the lava 
pit with one fireball, and land on the stone ground.  Immediately spin jump 
forward to dodge the two Grinders heading in your direction.  Jump to the upper 
level, spin jump across the Grinders, and jump to the upper ledge with the '?' 
block.  Get the Cape from the '?' block, fall back down to the middle level, 
and dodge one more Grinder.  Jump to the upper level (to the far right), run 
across the stone blocks, and fall back down to the right of the red gate.  Walk 
to the right until you see huge lava pit, and get the last Dragon Coin at the 
ledge. *** Head back left, drop down to the middle ledge, and run right.  When 
you see the red gate, enter it to fight Renzor. (Find: VDRZR)  Awesome!!  You 
beat the Fortress of World 5!

Alternative Exit:

This exit is only recommended for skilled players.  It will be difficult to 
reach the exit, but if you do, you will get 9 extra lives.  You must have a 
cape, and you should be using Luigi to reach the exit.  Right after getting the 
last Dragon Coin, go a few steps back to the left, and prepare to fly a long 
distance.  Get a good running start and fly before you fall in the lava.  
Control your flying by trying to stay near the ceiling.  If you manage to dodge 
all the fireballs and not falling in the lava for about 10 seconds, you will 
find nine yellow bricks scattered over stone ground.  Land on the ground, get 
all of the extra lives from the bricks, and enter the red gate to the right to 
fight Renzor.  Nice Job!!  You beat Forest Fortress and got 9 extra lives!!

GO TO: Star Road 4




Roy's Castle #5 (RC5)
---------------------
Difficulty: 6/10 | Brother: Mario | Dragon Coins: 5 | Time: 300
Enemies: Fireball, Fire Statue, Roy


Here it is, the Castle of World 5, Roy's Castle!  For half of the level, you 
will be riding on a platform of brown bricks over lava or spikes, so do not 
fall off!!  Have a Cape to make dodging fireballs and spikes easier.

You will start on high stone ground in a fairly cramped space.  Run forward and 
jump down to the line of brown bricks over the huge lava pit.  When the 
platform starts to move forward, spin jump to dodge the fireball, and grab the 
first Dragon Coin in mid air.  Stay in the middle of the platform as it starts 
to climb, and dodge the bouncing fireball.  Stay in the middle of the platform 
as it starts to descend and when it moves back and forth.  Dodge three more 
bouncing fireballs as the platform rises again, and move to the back of the 
platform enters the short tunnel.  Now, the platform will start to move in a 
wavy motion, making it easier to fall.  To dodge the falling spikes, stay in 
the back of the platform.  Grab the second Dragon Coin as you enter the spiked 
area.  Dodge the falling spike above the third Dragon Coin, and grab the coin 
when the spike is gone.  Dodge two more spikes when you see the fourth Dragon 
Coin, and like before, get the coin when the spikes are gone.  When the 
platform enters another short tunnel, jump off the platform and duck so it can 
pass over you.  With the platform gone, run forward and break through the Check 
Point near the small gap.

---Check Point---

Jump to the upper platform, carefully walk down the steps so you do not hit the 
spikes, and dodge the falling spike above the 'P' switch.  Grab the switch, 
start to run across the bridge, and stop when you see the fireballs.  Press the 
switch, spin jump across the three fireballs, and get the extra life after you 
jump across the two fire statues.  Jump to the middle of the shifting platform, 
and get the Cape from the green '!' block.  Dodge the bouncing fireball, jump 
to the middle of the second shifting platform, and get the last Dragon Coin 
right above you.  Dodge the fire statue and the bouncing fireball, jump past 
the third shifting platform, and jump to the stone ground.  Run forward, dodge 
the last fire statue, and enter the red gate to fight the boss.

Boss Battle: Roy

When you first encounter Roy, you will immediately notice that the arena is 
just like Morton's.  Fight Roy just like you would fight Morton, by jumping on 
his head to hurt him.  The only difference is that when Roy climbs to the 
ceiling and tries to smash you, the walls will start to close in.  Quickly beat 
Roy, or the closing walls will make hitting him more difficult.  Step on Roy 
twice more to kill him and send him flying away.  Excellent Job!! You destroyed 
Roy, his castle, and you beat World 5!!

GO TO: Chocolate Island 1





*************************
World 6: Chocolate Island
*************************


Chocolate Island 1 (CI1)
------------------------
Difficulty: 5.5/10 | Brother: Mario | Dragon Coins: 5 | Time: 300
Enemies: Chargin' Chuck, Dino-Rhino, Dino-Torch, Flying Koopa, Nip, Jumping 
Piranha, Porcu-Puffer


This is your first level in Chocolate Island.  Because you will be massacred by 
various enemies (mostly Dinos), this level is not easy.  Have two Fire Flowers 
on you to kill of the Dino-Torches and the Jumping Piranhas.

You will start on the ground with a Dino-Rhino walking towards you.  Jump on it 
twice to kill it, and jump on the single Dino-Torch when it slides down the two 
slanted cliffs.  Jump across the cliffs to the upper platform, kill the Dino-
Torch heading towards you, and brush against the green bush to free a trapped 
mushroom.  Get the mushroom, slide down the slope to kill the single Dino-
Rhino, and kill the three Dino-Torches as they hop towards you.  As you walk 
forward, kill another Dino-Rhino, get the Fire Flower from the flying '?' 
block, and jump to the upper ground.  Jump on the two Dino-Torches as they hop 
towards you, run down the steps, and stop when you see the green pipe.  Jump on 
the sliding Dino-Torch when it drops past the green pipe, kill the Jumping 
Piranha in the pipe, and get the first Dragon Coin near the slanted cliff.  
Enter the yellow pipe near the green cannon and when you shoot out of the 
cannon, do not press any button to land next to a green trampoline.  Jump on 
the trampoline to break the Check Point and to pass the small gap.

---Check Point---

Press the 'P' switch to free a jumping Chargin' Chuck from the sky, and to make 
a platform of brown bricks appear above the Nips.  Jump on the Chargin' Chuck 
until it dies, run past the line of brown bricks and up the two slanting 
cliffs, and grab the second Dragon Coin near the upper ground.  Slide down the 
large pits to kill the three Dinos, and grab the Fire Flower from the flying 
'?' block.  As you walk out of the pit, kill another Dino-Torch, and jump past 
the large gap, making sure you get the third Dragon Coin.  When you land on the 
ground, spin jump to kill the lone Dino-Torch, and get the Yoshi from the '?' 
block above you.  Eat the Jumping Piranha, hop across the two yellow pipes, and 
kill the Dino-Rhino on the line of blue '!' blocks.  Get the mushroom from the 
yellow '!' block and the fourth Dragon Coin above it.  Kill the Jumping Piranha 
and the Dino-Torch, and go down the second blue pipe to enter another area.  
When you come out of an orange pipe, get the extra life from the yellow brick, 
and start to hop across the dolphins.  This will be quite difficult as the 
dolphins are swimming in your opposite direction.  Don't fall or you will get 
hit by the two Porcu-Puffer swimming below you.  When you land on solid ground 
at the end of this area, go up the blue pipe to exit the level.  Now, you will 
be shot out of the green cannon.  Do not press any button as you fly through 
the sky, and you will bounce off a Flying Koopa, get the final Dragon Coin, and 
land on solid ground near a green trampoline.  Pick up the green trampoline and 
run through the End Marker.  Because you brought the green trampoline with you, 
you get a bonus power up (depending on your current status).  Great Job!!  You 
finished Chocolate Island 1!!

GO TO: Choco-Ghost House




Choco-Ghost House (CGH)
-----------------------
Difficulty: 6.5/10 | Brother: Luigi | Dragon Coins: 5 | Time: 300
Enemies: Boo, Eerie


This is arguably the hardest and most annoying Ghost House you will ever have 
to play.  Boo-bricks and Bouncing Boos will surely cause you to die multiple 
times before you beat the level.  Have two Capes on you, and always be very 
alert when you play this level.

When you appear on the wooden bridge, you will notice that there is a gap 
moving back and fourth in the bridge.  Run forward, and spin jump over the gap 
to dodge the two Eeries near the ground.  As you run forward, hop on the upper 
bridge when you reach the end of the first bridge.  As you jump back down to 
the lower bridge, spin jump as high as you can to hop over another moving gap, 
and the five Eeries.  Keep moving forward, dodge three more Eeries, and jump 
past the third moving gap.  Quickly jump to dodge another two Eeries (in the 
up-down formation), and jump past another moving gap.  Now, a Fishin' Boo will 
sudden appear to try to kill you, so from here to the second area, always make 
sure your jumps are short.  Jump to the upper bridge, run down the stair, and 
spin jump to dodge the lone Eerie near the ground.  Keep running up and down 
the short flight of stair cases, dodge another lone Eerie, and drop to the 
lower bridge with the '?' block.  Wait until the five Eeries pass by you, grab 
the Cape from the '?' block, and walk forward.  At the end of the upper bridge, 
slowly drop down, and tilt to the right to land on the small lower bridge.  
Grab the first Dragon Coin to your right, get the Cape from another '?' block, 
and head back right.  Run forward, dodge the two moving gaps and the three 
Eeries, and stop when you see the Check Point above the third moving gap.  Wait 
until any Eeries cross by, jump through the Check Point, and land on the ground 
to your right.

---Check Point---

Run forward, jump over the moving gap, and get the second Dragon Coin near the 
right wall.  Enter the gate to your direct left to enter the second area.  In 
this area, walk forward, ignore the '?' block over the Boo-blocks, and run 
underneath the brick pillar.  Dodge the Bouncing Boos until it leaves the area, 
and lure the Boo-bricks under the third Dragon Coin.  Face the Boo-blocks and 
use them to get the third Dragon Coin near the ceiling.  Jump past the stone 
pillar, dodge the two Bouncing Boos, and run under another brick pillar 
ignoring the yellow gate near the ceiling.  Here, wait until the Bouncing Boos 
leave, use the wooden blocks to get the fourth Dragon Coin, and run under the 
final stone pillar.  Here, try to dodge the Bouncing Boos, as you jump up the 
long wooden platforms.  Grab the final Dragon Coin in the middle of the upper 
platform, and drop down to the right.  Dodge the Boo-Blocks, grab the extra 
life from the yellow brick, and run towards the left.  Jump past the pillars, 
dodge the Boo-blocks and the Bouncing Boos, and stop under the yellow gate.  
When the Bouncing Boos leave the section, fly up towards the right, and land on 
the upper wooden platform to the left.  If you don't have a cape, you can jump 
to the upper platform by luring the Boo-blocks under the platform.  Enter the 
yellow gate to your left to exit the Ghost House, and run through the End 
Marker to beat the level.  Nice Job!  You beat Choco-Ghost House!!

GO TO: Chocolate Island 2




Chocolate Island 2 (CI2)
------------------------
Difficulty: Varies (4-6)/10 | Brother: Mario | Dragon Coins: 5 | Time: 300
Enemies: BB Chargin' Chuck, Dino-Rhino, Dino-Torch, Flying Koopa


This level is inarguably the most confusing one in the game (And the hardest to 
write).  This level is written is a different format from the other ones in an 
attempt to make it less confusing.  Each Area in this level is organized by 
chronological order.  Each time you go through the level, only one Area per 
group.  There are different requirements to access each Area.  There is no 
Check Point in this level due to the various Areas.


EX: If I wanted to get all Dragon Coins, I would use this order.

(1) Initial Area
(2) Rex Area
(3) Dino Area
(4) Final Area - The 'P' Switch Zone

This is only one possible way out of four ways to get all the Dragon Coins.


(DC) means that this area will be in a pathway to getting all of the Dragon 
Coins.  You MUST choose all (DC) Areas if you want all 5 Dragon Coins.

(SE) means that this Area has the key and keyhole for the Secret Exit.


---Area 1---


(1) Initial Area (DC):
No Requirements

You will start on the ground with a Dino-Torch walking towards you.  Kill the 
Dino-Torch and the Dino-Rhino that will follow shortly after.  Jump up the 
cliffs until you are on the third one (The one with a Dino-Rhino).  Stand on 
the very left edge of the cliff and jump to hit a hidden block.  Jump on the 
brown brick (hidden block) and tap your control pad to the left until you are 
directly underneath the '?' block (But still on the hidden block).  Hit the '?' 
block to get as many coins as needed. (To go to the Flying or Rex area) When 
you are done getting your coins, jump to the top of the multiple cliffs, and 
get the first Dragon Coin near the green bush.  Get the extra life from the '?' 
block and the second Dragon Coin near another bush.  Kill the Dino-Rhino and 
jump into the pit to the far right (get the pair of coins).  On the lower 
ground, head into the green pipe to enter the second area.

NOTE: If you want to go through the Slanted Cliff Area and to the Secret Exit, 
ignore all coins (including Dragon Coins), and run across this Area as fast as 
you can.  You should have around 285 seconds remaining after this Area if you 
decide to use this approach to the Secret Exit.


---Area 2---


(2) Slanted Cliffs:
Get less than 9 coins in the First Area

In this area, you will be hopping across slanted cliffs and dodging Flying 
Koopas.  There are three sets of five slanted cliffs, where each set slants in 
one direction.  Now, hop across the cliffs, making sure you dodge the Flying 
Koopas.  Make sure you run quickly, but carefully, because you will more than 
likely fall on your first try.  When you jump past the 21st cliff, fall down to 
level ground, and enter the green pipe to get to the third area.


(2) Flying Area (DC):
Get more than 20 coins in the First Area

Here, if you have a Yoshi, you must leave it behind.  Grab the Cape and run to 
the red triangle to climb the tall wall.  When you reach the top, immediately 
start to fly across the level. Try to fly at the level of the line of coins, 
but don't hesitate to fly higher if you think you are too low.  After about 2 
seconds of flying, fly slightly lower to get the third Dragon Coin.  Keep 
flying forward and stop when you reach the right wall.  Fall down to the ground 
and walk through the green pipe to get to the third area.


(2) Rex Area (DC):
Get between 9 and 20 coins in the First Area

When you exit from the green pipe, get the coin from the '?' block and kill the 
Rex heading in your direction.  Walk forward, kill the four Rex walking on 
three cliffs, and jump over the small gap to the tall platform.  Carefully jump 
to the green trampoline and use it to bounce back to solid ground.  Jump over 
the four rex as you climb the cliffs, watch out for the Jumping Piranhas, and 
get the third Dragon Coin over the second brown pipe.  Run forward, quickly 
kill the Rex, and get the Fire Flower from the '?' block on the highest cliff. 
Ignore the other two '?' blocks and run through the green pipe to enter the 
third area).


---Area 3---


(3) Dino Area (DC):
Finish Rex Area or the Flying Area with more than 230 seconds but less than 250 
seconds remaining

Spin jump across the level to kill the Dino-Rhinos and the Dino-Torches.  When 
you pass the third Dino, get the fourth Dragon Coin above the green bush.  Pass 
by three more Dino-Torches and enter the green pipe to enter the final area.


(3) Mushroom Heaven (DC):
Finish Rex Area or the Flying Area with less than 230 seconds remaining

Here, you will be jumping from many platforms over pool of water.  The best 
past of this area is that there are about twelve mushrooms floating in bubbles 
and no enemies.  So quickly jump across the level, grab the fourth Dragon Coin  
(If you want it), and enter the green pipe at the end of the level.


(3) Land of the BB Chargin' Chucks (SE):
Finish Rex Area or the Flying Area with more than 250 seconds remaining

Run forward and quickly jump past the first BB Chargin' Chuck, and onto the 
small platform composed of two red '!' blocks.  To dodge any of the baseballs 
the BB Chargin' Chucks are throwing, you should ignore the power ups from the 
various '!' blocks, and stay on the upper part of the level.  Keep hopping 
across the different colored '!' blocks until you see the second yellow pipe.  
Kill the BB Chargin' Chuck that is (sometimes) on the pipe, jump past the small 
gap, and grab the key on the line of stone blocks.  Put the key into the 
keyhole to your right to beat the level.  Awesome!!  You found the secret of 
Chocolate Island 2!


---Area 4---


(4) Final Area - The 'P' Switch Zone (DC):
Finish Mushroom Area or Dino Area with four Dragon Coins

When you enter this area, ignore the two yellow blocks, and grab the 'P' switch 
near the edge of the ground.  Run across the line of various colored '!' blocks 
getting the coins and the final Dragon Coin near the end of the run.  Still 
holding the 'P' switch, run across the End Marker to finish the level.  As a 
reward for bringing the 'P' switch with you, you get a power up.  Nice Job!!  
You finished Chocolate Island 2 with all of the Dragon Coins!!


(4) Final Area - The Ambush of the Rex:
Finish Mushroom Area or Dino Area with less than four Dragon Coins

When you get exit out of the green pipe, walk across the ground and jump on the 
green trampoline on a stone block.  Carefully use the trampoline to hop across 
the large gap.  As you fall, press ->, A, and B to land on the uppermost cliff. 
Jump across seven Rex, and run through the End Marker near the red arrow.  Nice 
Job!!  You beat Chocolate Island 2!!


Normal Exit - GO TO: Chocolate Island 3
Secret Exit - GO TO: Chocolate Secret




Chocolate Secret (CS)
---------------------
Difficulty 7/10 | Brother: Mario | Dragon Coins: 5 | Time: 300
Enemies: Amazing Flyin' Hammer Brother, Chargin' Chuck (FB and normal), Nip, 
Spiked Top


Welcome to the hardest level of Chocolate Island!  I can guarantee you that you 
will be very frustrated the first few times you play this level.  Also, 300 
seconds may not be enough time for some people.  Having a Yoshi and two Capes 
will make this level much, much easier.

You will start near the ledge on the stone ground near a large lava pit.  See 
the green trampoline on the brown brick in the middle of the lava pit?  Use it 
to safely jump across the pit and to dodge the single Blaarg hiding in the 
lava.  Now run through the small tunnel, kill the two Buzzy Beetles, and stop 
when you see the pit.  Jump across the pit and dodge the footballs the FB 
Chargin' Chuck will throw at you.  Kill one of the two Buzzy Beetles to the 
right (By spin jumping), and take the shell from the second one.  Use the shell 
to kill that FB Chargin' Chuck above you (on the cliff).  Now, you will notice 
another FB Chargin' Chuck throwing footballs at you from the upper ground.  
Dodge the footballs, jump to the upper ground, and kill the Chargin' Chuck.  
Walk (Do not slide) down the steep slope and jump past the gap when the slope 
starts to curve.  Quickly get the Cape from the '?' block, dodge the footballs 
as you walk up the curved slope, and kill the FB Chargin' Chuck near the green 
pipe.  Enter the green pipe to rise up to the surface. In this short area, you 
will have to hop across four falling gray platforms.  The hard part is that an 
Amazing Flyin' Hammer Brother in the sky will be throwing hammers in all 
directions.  So carefully, but quickly jump across the gray platforms, dodge 
the hammers, and make sure you get the first Dragon Coin on the way.  When you 
reach stable ground, enter the yellow pipe to return to the main area.  When 
you drop down to the ground, a FB Chargin' Chuck will throw footballs at you 
from the direct left.  Jump on the Chargin' Chuck thrice to kill it and hop 
down to the lower ground where the second Dragon Coin is.  Run forward, get the 
coin, and kill the FB Chargin Chuck throwing footballs at you on the short 
cliff.  Jump to the hovering stone platform to the upper left, break the Check 
Point above the gap, and run into the green pipe on the right wall to enter the 
second area.

---Check Point---

When you enter this area, run down the flight of steps, and start to slide down 
(left).  From here to the end of this area, just hold down the 'Down' button to 
slide down the various slopes, and to kill the Buzzy Beetles.  After nine 
Beetles, you will start to slide down the fifth slope.  Jump when you see the 
gap to dodge the pair of Nips.  When you slide down two more slopes, enter the 
green pipe to enter the third area.  In the first half of this area, Spiked 
Tops will be roaming everywhere.  Climb up the steps by spin jumping to dodge 
the Spiked Tops, and stop when you see the yellow stone platform swimming in 
lava.  Hop across this platform quickly to avoid sinking with the platform, and 
spin jump before you land to dodge another Spiked Top.  Here, jump across the 
various pits, but spin jump to deflect all of the Spiked Tops.  Grab the third 
Dragon Coin from the second pit, and stop when you see the many yellow blocks 
floating in the pool of lava.  Get a good running start, jump straight to the 
second platform, and continue jumping across the six yellow platforms as fast 
as you can.  Get the fourth Dragon Coin above the eight platforms, and jump to 
the gray stone ground to the right.  If you are having trouble jumping to the 
gray stone ground, jump on the eight yellow platform twice (once to get the 
Dragon Coin and twice to jump across the lava pit.  On this stretch of land, 
many Chargin' Chucks will be trying to tackle you.  I suggest you to take out 
all of the Chargin' Chucks once at a time.  Now run across the stretch of land, 
get the Fire Flower from the '?' block, and kill all the Chargin' Chucks on 
your way.  After about six Chargin' Chucks, you will see another bunch of 
yellow platforms will be floating in a large pool of lava.  Get a running 
start, jump directly to the second yellow platform, and hop across the six 
remaining platforms.  Because half of these platforms are slanted, you must be 
careful not to slide off.  From the last platform, jump a little lower than 
usual to get the final Dragon Coin and to land on the safe stone ground.  Run 
through the green pipe to finally enter the fourth area.  Here, simply run 
forward and hit the End Marker to beat the level.  Great Job!!  You beat the 
hardest level of Chocolate Island!!

GO TO: Wendy's Castle #6




Chocolate Island 3 (CI3)
------------------------
Difficulty: 4/10 | Brother: Luigi | Dragon Coins: 5 | Time: 300
Enemies: Flying Koopa, Fuzzy, Koopa


This is another level where there are fewer enemies and more obstacles.  Which 
brother do we choose for these kinds of levels?  Luigi of course!  The Fuzzies 
near the spinning gray platforms will be a pain in the butt.  There is a Check 
Point in this level, but using the blue pipe is much easier, faster, and will 
let you get all five Dragon Coins.

Starting on mushroom platform, run forward, and hop on the spinning gray 
platform.  Hop to the mushroom platform and to the second spinning gray 
platform (with a Koopa in the middle).  Dodge the Koopa and get the first 
Dragon Coin on the tall mushroom platform to the right.  Hop down to the lower 
mushroom platform and jump across three gray ones dodging the Koopas.  From the 
third gray spinning platform, jump to the lower mushroom platform, kill the 
Koopa, and get the Cape from the '?' block.  Jump to the smaller mushroom 
platform and hop across two spinning gray platforms. Stand on the second 
platform to get the second Dragon Coin underneath it.  Over the third spinning 
gray platform, you will see a blue pipe.  Enter the pipe when the spinning gray 
platform is directly underneath it to enter the sky.  In this area, you will 
see hundreds of coins in the air and two different platforms.   Jump across the 
moving white platform to the stationary brown one.  Depending on which side you 
are standing on, the platform will start to spin to the left or right.  Grab as 
many coins as you can in two revolutions (to save time) and get the third 
Dragon Coin to the right of the spinning brown platform.  Fall down to the 
cloud ground and plunge through the green pipe to your right to reenter the 
main level.  When you fall from the green pipe to the mushroom platform, jump 
to the spinning gray platform to the right (with a Fuzzy).  Jump past three 
more gray spinning platforms with Fuzzes, get the Cape from the '?' block, and 
the fourth Dragon Coin near the third spinning platform.  On the spinning gray 
platform without a Fuzzy, get another Cape from the green '!' block, and kill 
the red Flying Koopa.  Get the final Dragon Coin under the last spinning gray 
platform and jump to the mushroom platform to the right.  Get the extra life 
from the green star block and stand under the yellow brick. *** Ignore the blue 
Koopa, hit the yellow brick, and climb the plant that sprouts out.  Jump past 
one more spinning gray platform and run through the End Marker on the upper 
mushroom platform.  Great Job!!  You finished Chocolate Island 3!

Secret Exit:

If you want to find the secret exit, you must have a Cape or a Yoshi.  Using a 
Cape, take a running start and fly up to the right over the gigantic gap.  
After three seconds, land on the mushroom platform and get the extra lives from 
the three yellow bricks.  After getting the lives, jump through the End Marker 
to beat the level.  Great Job!!  You found the Secret Exit of this level!

Normal Exit - GO TO: Chocolate Island 3 (Yes, the same level)
Secret Exit - GO TO: Chocolate Fortress




Chocolate Fortress (CF)
-----------------------
Difficulty: 5/10 | Brother: Mario | Dragon Coins: 5 | Time: 300
Enemies: Dry Bones, Thwimp, Thwomp


This is the only Fortress in Chocolate Island.  In the first area, pairs of 
logs (vertically aligned) will randomly try to pierce you.  Have at least one 
cape with you to help you through the first area.

When you start on the stone ground, run forward, and jump through the two 
vertical wooden logs.  Kill the Dry Bones, jump between another pair of logs, 
and run onto the line red '!' blocks.  When the log moves up, jump into the 
small tunnel, and stop when you reach the end.  When the fourth log moves up, 
jump over the chocolate lava pit, and get a Cape from the '?' block.  From here 
to the next area, random breaths of fire will be flying across the air.  Make 
sure you dodge these, because they can be really annoying.  Now walk past the 
second tunnel, making sure you dodge the log and the two small chocolate lava 
pits.  Jump across another log to get the first Dragon Coin, and land at the 
edge of another chocolate lava pit.  Jump to the small stone platform when the 
log is up, hop past the lava pit, and land on the line of blue '!' blocks.  
Kill the Dry Bones, hop across the pair of logs, and jump through the various 
vertical logs.  Make sure you get the second Dragon Coin above the fifth log.  
Run forward, hit the Check Point, and enter the yellow gate.

---Check Point---

When you see yourself on the upper stone ground, run forward and stop when you 
see the Thwomp.  When the Thwomp tries to smash you, spin jump as you fall in 
the pit, quickly tilt to the right, and squeeze through the tunnel, back to the 
lower ground.  Now run forward and spin jump over the Thwomp when he crashes 
down.  Jump over the next Thwomp in the same manner, but make sure you dodge 
the Thwimp hopping back and fourth.  If you want to dodge the Thwimp easily, I 
recommend you to stay to the left (NOT right) of the Thwimp's landing place, 
and spin jumping over the Thwomp when it crashes to the ground. Now, run 
forward and jump on the small stone platform with the Thwomp.  Soon, the Thwomp 
will crash to the ground.  When the Thwomp starts to rise again, immediately 
run under it, and then get the third Dragon Coin above the trio of '?' blocks. 
When the second Thwomp rises, drop to the lower ground, head left, and then get 
the Cape from the first '?' block.  After getting the Cape, dodge the Thwomp 
again, and jump past the small gap to safe ground. Jump past the Thwimp when it 
hops to the left, run under the Thwomp, and stop when you see the four red '!' 
blocks.  Run under this Thwomp and spin jump over the next one that is over the 
yellow spikes.  Dodge the first two Thwimps, get the fourth Dragon Coin, and 
dodge another two Thwimps hopping back and fourth.  From here, run forward, and 
jump under another Thwomp and the small pit of spikes.  Dodge another Thwomp 
near two pits of spikes and stop when you see the Thwomp blocked by two blue 
'!' blocks.  Because the Thwomp cannot hurt you, carefully jump past the two 
spiked pits.  The next Thwomp will be blocked by two red '!' blocks, but a 
Thwimp will be hopping across the spiked pits.  Spin jump over the Thwimp and 
the pits, get the Cape from the green '!' block, and get the final Dragon Coin 
above the block.  Run forward and enter the red gate to fight Renzor. (Find: 
VDRZR) Great Job!!  You beat The Fortress!!

GO TO: Chocolate Island 4




Chocolate Island 4 (CI4)
----------------------------
Difficulty: 5.5/10 | Brother: Mario | Dragon Coins: 5 | Time: 300
Enemies: Chargin' Chuck, Mega Mole


Chocolate Island may not be the toughest level in World 6, but it is certainly 
not the easiest.  Your biggest challenge is to beat the timer of 300 seconds.  
Getting all five Dragon Coins may pose a slight problem, because one is 
cleverly placed in a hidden area.  If you have a Yoshi and at least one cape, 
this level will be a tad easier.

When the level first starts, you will be sliding down a steep slope.  Press 
'Down' to slide down faster and stop when you see the slope bending.  Jump on 
the moving grass platform to move across the chocolate lava, and hop to the 
upper slope to the right.  Run right and stop when you reach the ledge of the 
slope.  Now you will see two grass platforms, one moving diagonally up, and the 
other moving diagonally down.  Hop on the one that is moving diagonally up, run 
up the steps when the grass platform stops moving, and get the first Dragon 
Coin on the slope underneath the steps.  When you reach the right ledge of the 
stone peak, jump on the grass platform that moves diagonally up.  If you fall 
down in this section, the chocolate lava will kill you.  So carefully hop 
across the grass platforms (head diagonally up), and get the mushroom resting 
on the small ledge.  Jump back on the grass platforms, but this time move down 
(but still to the right).  You will see a falling gray platform above the 
lethal chocolate lava shortly.  Quickly hop across the platform and land on the 
lower slope.  Ignoring the extra lives for now, run up the slope halfway, and 
jump up left to the upper slope.  Grab the second Dragon Coin at the top of the 
slope and jump back down to the lower slope you were initially on.  Walk up the 
slope, run across the bumpy terrain, and drop down to the left to land on the 
edge of a slope near the Check Point.  Hop on the first grass platform moving 
left, and let it break the Check Point for you.

---Check Point---

When you break the Check Point, drop straight down, ignoring the grass platform 
to land on the long line of blue '!' blocks.  Run to the left ignoring the 
grass platforms, get the three extra lives on the red and yellow '!' blocks, 
and get the mushroom from the yellow block.  Run back right and use the grass 
platform to jump back on the slope near the Check Point.  Run up the slope, 
ignore the trapped Dragon Coin for now, and hop on the line of yellow bricks 
(Diagonally aligned).  Get the third Dragon Coin above the second to last 
yellow brick, and spin jump to break the brick and to land on a slope.  Run 
back up the slope past the piles of brown bricks, and hit the third yellow 
brick to release a 'P' switch.  Hit the 'P' switch, get the fourth Dragon Coin 
from the upper pit, and go through the blue pipe in the lower one.  You will 
land on an arrow composed of yellow bricks with a 'P' switch.  Step on the 
switch and drop down the long pit.  There will be many exits at the right side 
of the wall, but only one tunnel will have the fourth Dragon Coin.  If you want 
to get to that exit, you must use a cape to slow down your fall.  Press the 'P' 
switch, wait for three seconds (count in your head, and jump down the huge pit. 
As you are falling down, always press the 'B' button to slow down your fall.  
If you did this right, the 'P' switch effect should fade away after the second 
line of coins.  This means that the third line of coins will turn into a line 
of brown bricks, which will let you walk through the tunnel with the fourth 
Dragon Coin!  After getting the coin, run through the green pipe to exit the 
area and reenter the main level.  When you enter the level out of the yellow 
pipe, you will notice a Mega Mole falling down from the air.  Ignore the mole 
and get the Fire Flower from the '?' block on the platform to your right.  
Slowly walk off the platform, but don't move forward as you fall.  You should 
land to the left of a chocolate lava pit.  Hop across the pit, run past the 
bumpy slope, kill the jumping Chargin' Chuck, and finally break the End Marker 
to beat the level.  Excellent!!  You beat Chocolate Island 4!




Chocolate Island 5 (CI5)
------------------------
Difficulty: 3/10 | Brother: Mario | Dragon Coins: 5 | Time: 300
Enemies: Chargin' Chuck, Guppy, Para-Bobomb, Para-Goomba, Spiny


This level is fairly easy compared to the other ones in this world.  Time will 
usually not pose an issue, but you should proceed quickly before you get the 
100 second warning.  Have a Fire Flower to easily kill off the four Chargin' 
Chucks at the end of the level.

You will start on a small cliff with no immediate danger.  For now, you will 
see Spinies trapped by eight brown bricks.  Ignore these Spinies, run forward, 
and stop when you see the seven yellow bricks with one '?' block.  Hit the '?' 
block to get an extra life, and hit the lower right brick to get a Fire Flower 
(Use Yoshi to eat the Fire Flower).  Now grab (DO NOT PRESS) the 'P' switch, 
jump across more trapped Spinies and the trapped yellow pipe, and stop when you 
see the line of coins over the large gap.  Spit out the switch (to the left), 
and press it to make a stable line of brown bricks over the gap.  Quickly run 
forward, grab the mushroom and dodge the Spinies, and get the star from the 
shifting block on the ground.  Because you have star power, all of the Spinies 
are at your mercy.  Run forward, get the first Dragon Coin surrounded by coins, 
and keep running until you see the yellow pipe near the small flight of steps. 
Head down the pipe to enter the second area.  This area can be a breeze, but 
only if you do not fall in the water.  Run forward, jump to the upper ground 
and get the second Dragon Coin above the small bush.  Now hop across the water 
(Don't fall in) ignoring the Guppies floating in the bubbles.  If you hit the 
guppies, they will instantly die because they have no water.  Occasionally you 
will come across some mushrooms.  Grab them if needed, and keep jumping across 
the platforms until you see the blue pipe.  Get the third Dragon Coin above the 
green bush and go down the pipe to reenter the main part of the level.  When 
you pop out of the yellow pipe, jump up the cliffs and hit the Check Point near 
the huge gap (be careful not to fall down).

---Check Point---

Before you jump across the green pipes in the pit, you should know that they 
will move up when touched.  So quickly but carefully hop across the green 
pipes, get the fourth Dragon Coin above the second, and land on the stable red 
pipe.  Now carefully jump across three lines of dual shifting yellow bricks, 
and land on the moving green pipe.  The last Dragon Coin will be on the yellow 
pipe in front of you, but it is guarded by a jumping Chargin' Chuck.  So, aim 
for the Chargin' Chuck's head, and jump when the green pipe is fully extended. 
Kill the Chargin' Chuck, grab the final Dragon Coin, and jump right to stable 
ground.  Three more jumping Chargin' Chucks will be snapping at the air in 
front of the End Marker.  To save time, don't kill all of the Chargin' Chucks, 
but hop across them to the End Marker to beat the level.  Awesome!!  You beat 
Chocolate World 5 and will head to Wendy's Castle!

GO TO: Wendy's Castle #6




Wendy's Castle #6 (WC6)
-----------------------
Difficulty: 6/10 | Brother: Mario | Dragon Coins: 5 | Time: 300
Enemies: Dry Bones, Grinder, Hot Head, Lil' Sparky, Wendy


Here it is, The Castle of the Sixth World!  The Grinders and the spikes in the 
first half of the level will prove to be a pain in the butt.  Time is also not 
on your side, as 300 seconds may not be enough time to beat this level for some 
people.  Have two Capes on you to help you jump across the platforms in the 
second half of the level.

You will start on the stone ground with a Dry Bones walking towards you.  Run 
forward, kill the Dry Bones, dodge the bone he threw, and stop when you see the 
huge spike and the small gap.  Wait for the spike to fall, and jump across the 
gap when it starts to rise again.  When you land on the stone ground, stand 
still and stay away from the pair of green trampolines.  When the spike falls 
on the spikes, let it rise fully, then use the trampolines to jump to the tall 
platform.  Walk forward, dodge the three yellow spikes on the opposite wall, 
and drop down the pit moving to the right so you do not fall in the gap.  Here, 
quickly run two steps, and duck to slide into the small pit to dodge the 
Grinder.  Keep ducking in the pit until both Grinders pass to the right of you. 
Now jump out of the pit and stand underneath the first Dragon Coin, but do not 
grab it yet.  When a Grinder moves from the right towards you, spin jump to 
deflect the blades and to get the first Dragon Coin in the air.  Run forward, 
jump past the lava pit (spin jump to bounce off the fireball), and land on the 
pair of red '!' blocks.  When the second fireball drops down back in the lava, 
jump across the other half of the lava pit, and land on the stone ground.  Walk 
forward, and immediately duck in the small gap when you see the Grinder moving 
in a square motion.  When the spike starts to move up, get out of the pit, run 
past another Grinder, and stop when you see the second spike.  When this spike 
starts to move up, run across the ground, spin jump past the Grinder on the 
long rectangular wire path, and stop between the two rectangular wires.  If you 
are in the direct middle, two spikes should plunge down to the ground, but 
barely touching you.  When the spikes move up again, run across the second 
rectangular wire path (with two Grinders this time), and stop when you see the 
blue '!' block in the air.  Here, you must carefully jump past two stone blocks 
and the blue '!' block without getting hit by any Grinder.  So when the first 
Grinder moves up, jump on the first stone block and duck.  When the second 
Grinder moves away from the blue '!' block, jump to that block.  Again, when 
the third Grinder moves away from the second stone block, jump on the block, 
and hop immediately to the upper pair of stone blocks.  Walk past the upper 
ground, fall down to the lower ground, and get the mushroom from the yellow '!' 
block (trust me, you will need it).  These spikes will move four times as fast 
as the other ones.  So carefully run past across the stone ground dodging the 
spikes, and stop on the pair of stone blocks above the second Dragon Coin.  Run 
(do not jump) past the fourth spike, run back to get that Dragon Coin, and head 
back right across the stone ground.  Grab the Check Point and open the yellow 
gate to enter the second area.

---Check Point---

In this area, you will me jumping across moving stone blocks, and dodging Hot 
Heads and Lil' Sparkies.  Run across the ground, and jump to the first hovering 
stone platform you see (dodge the Lil' Sparky of course).  Get the mushroom 
from the yellow '!' block, jump to the moving tunnel to your right, and grab 
the third Dragon Coin in the middle of the tunnel.  When the tunnel moves up, 
spin jump across the air, and then land on the floating stone platform making 
sure you dodge the Hot Head. When the blocks move up again, quickly jump across 
the rocky terrain before the ceiling falls on your head, and jump to the 
floating platform with the Lil' Sparky.  Keep spin jumping on that platform to 
dodge the Lil' Sparky, until the blocks move up again.  When the blocks are, 
jump to the next floating platform (with the Hot Head) making sure you get the 
fourth Dragon Coin between the platforms.  Jump to the vertically moving gray 
platform, and to the small white one moving horizontally.  When the small white 
platform is to the right, jump on the floating gray platform making sure you 
dodge the Lil' Sparky. When the lower white platform is to the left, wait for 1 
second, and drop down on it as it moves back to the right.  Jump to the 
hovering gray platform, dodge the Hot Head, and wait until the blocks move down 
again.  Get the final Dragon Coin tucked in the left block and jump back right, 
past the gray platform, to the moving stone ground with the Dry Bones.  Kill 
the Dry Bones, jump past the uppermost hovering stone block (with the Lil' 
Sparky, jump to the right, and land on the lower ground with the green '!' 
block.  Get the Cape from the block and enter the red gate to fight the Boss.

Boss Battle: Wendy
------------------
Fighting Wendy is almost just like fighting Lemmy from Castle 3.  The only 
difference is that there are two bouncing fireballs instead of one.  Fighting 
Wendy may not seem harder than Lemmy, but the fireballs give you a tougher 
time.  The other difference is that all of the pipes are of the same height, 
which makes moving back and fourth easier.  Just like Lemmy, jump on the real 
Wendy's head three times, but ignore the decoys.  After you jump on Wendy the 
third time, you will see her fall into a pool of lava, and burn to death.  
Great Job!!!  You beat the Castle of World 6!!

GO TO: Sunken Ghost Ship





*************************
World 7: Valley of Bowser
*************************


Sunken Ghost Ship (SGS)
-----------------------
Difficulty: 4.5/10 | Brother: Mario | Dragon Coins: 5 | Time: 400
Enemies: Boo, Bullet Bill, Eerie, Flying Koopa, Spiked Ball


Welcome to the Sunken Ghost Ship!!  This level is very strange as all three 
areas are unexpectedly different from each other.  All of the Dragon Coins are 
placed in the third (falling) area, so you MUST have two Capes to get all five 
coins.  There is no Check Point in this level.

You will enter the deep sea through a silver pipe, and drop on the sunken ghost 
ship.  From here, swim forward, and dodge the Bullet Bills that will shoot out 
of cannons shortly.  Swim up dodging the Bullet Bills, and get the Cape from 
the '?' block above the first wooden crate.  Keep swimming up past the crates, 
but stop when you see the small gap (between two crates) near the third Bullet 
Bill.  Fall down the gap, and get the extra life that will pop out and swim 
away from you.  Swim out of the gap and past the grate; fall down to the bottom 
of the ship, and swim forward to see a yellow pipe.  Head down this pipe to 
enter the middle of the ship (also known as the second area).  when you enter 
the ship's main cabin out of another silver pipe, swim forward and stay up to 
avoid the pair of Eeries.  Keep swimming forward, dodge another Eerie, and land 
on the first wooden crate near the ceiling of the cabin.   From here to the 
second pile of crates, hundreds of Boos will appear randomly, covering much of 
the screen.  Although the Boos will not move while they are visible, every four 
seconds the Boos will disappear and relocate in a different spot.  My best 
advice to dodge these pests is for you to walk on the ground without jumping 
while the Boos are visible, and to stand still and duck while they are 
relocating.  Keep walking across the floor, swim up when you see the tunnel, 
and keep walking across the tunnel (the exact same way as before to dodge the 
Boos).  When you exit the tunnel, the Boos will permantly stop randomly 
appearing, but dodge the two Eeries when they try to attack you.  When you 
reach the mouth of the second tunnel (this one is lower too the ground), stop 
near the circle of Boos, and face left to stop the pair of Boos from attacking 
you.  When the gap in the Boo circle faces you, swim through it, stay in the 
middle of the circle, and swim up when the gap allows you too.  Swim across the 
line of wooden crates to the right, and stop when you see another Boo circle.  
Again, swim to the middle of the circle when the gap persists, but this time, 
drop to the ground from the middle of the circle.  Enter the blue pipe to reach 
the final area.  In this area, you MUST have at least one cape to get all five 
Dragon Coins.  When you drop down from the orange pipe, get the star and 
immediately hold A to slow down your fall.  Stay in the middle left of the huge 
pit, pass by three Koopas, and float to the first Dragon Coin.  When you fall 
past the line of Koopas, float to the right, and get the second Dragon Coin 
after passing by two more Koopas.  Stay around the middle and get the third 
Dragon Coin after about ten seconds of floating down.  Keep floating down the 
middle of the pit, dodge about five more Koopas, and land on the line of stone 
blocks about five seconds later.  Get the star from the '?' block, float down 
to the left, and get the fourth Dragon Coin about three seconds later.  
Continue floating down past the lines of Koopas, and veer right (not too much) 
when you see the huge cluster of coins.  About five seconds after you see the 
cluster of coins, get the final Dragon Coin that will come up.  After getting 
this Dragon Coin, feel free to drop down as fast as you wish.  After three more 
clusters of coins, a thick line of stone blocks will appear, leaving only a 
small gap in the center to fall through.  If you have the time and patience to, 
feel free to fly up and collect the many hundreds of coins in cluster above 
you.  When you are done getting the coins, drop down to the stone platform and 
SPIN JUMP down the small gap in the middle.  From here to the bottom of the end 
of the level, Spiked Balls will appear from all directions.  Do not slow down 
(in an attempt to dodge the Spiked Balls), or you will increase your chances of 
getting hit.  Veer to the far left as you fall, and you will soon drop down in 
a large pool of water.  Immediately swim down to the right, and try to get the 
three sinking extra lives without sinking yourself.  After you get the lives, 
swim up to the surface, head right, and jump to the stone platform with the 
green '?' ball.  Run into the ball to beat the level (this is the only time 
that a green '?' ball will be your exit.  Great Job!!  You beat the first level 
in the seventh World!!

GO TO: Valley of Bowser 1




Valley Of Bowser 1 (VB1)
------------------------
Difficulty: 5.5/10 | Brother: Mario | Dragon Coins: 5 | Time: 400
Enemies: Chargin' Chuck, Mega Mole


This level is not necessarily the hardest, but it is very long and quite 
annoying.  Because the nature of the level is very confusing, the walkthrough 
for this level may not be crystal clear.  In an attempt to clarify some parts 
of the level, I introduced two new terms:


Double intersection:  This means that there are two tunnels on top of each 
other, forcing you to choose one path.

Triple intersection:  This means that there are three tunnels on top of each 
other, forcing you to choose one out of the three paths.

Main/Major intersection:  This intersection has many paths ranging in all 
directions.  This type of intersection is vital in this level.


You will start on the stone ground with no immediate danger.  Run forward, jump 
on the line of red '!' blocks (these blocks are trapping a Megs Mole), and kill 
the Chargin' Chuck.  Climb up the rest of the steps, drop down the small pit, 
and enter the lower tunnel (with the cluster of blue bricks.  Start to dig 
through the bricks by constantly picking and throwing them, but make sure you 
are holding a brick to kill the Chargin' Chuck trying to ram you.  After you 
dug through the cluster of bricks, you will see a Mega Mole and a Dragon Coin 
above a stone platform and three scattered yellow bricks.  Use a yellow brick 
to kill the Mega Mole from below, and get the first Dragon Coin at the middle 
of the stone platform.  Drop back down to level ground, run all the way back, 
past the bricks, and to the intersection of tunnels, and jump to the upper one. 
In this tunnel, walk forward and stop at the mouth of the small pit.  When the 
Mega Mole runs and falls in the pit, jump past the pit, run forward (without 
jumping), touch the bottom step, and duck down to allow another Mega Mole to 
run past by you.  Now jump up the steps, run past the pit to the upper tunnel, 
and get the second Dragon Coin after dodging the Mega Mole.  After getting the 
Dragon Coin at the end of the tunnel, run back left, fall down the small pit, 
and jump to the middle tunnel to the right.  Walk across the tunnel floor, jump 
over another Mega Mole, and hop to the upper cliff past the somewhat large gap. 
In this tunnel you will not have enough room to jump over the Mega Mole, so you 
need to jump over the mole when you are under the slanted ceiling.  When the 
mole runs out of view, run forward up the slight slope, drop down to the lower 
tunnel, and break the Check Point at the dead end.

---Check Point---

From here run back, dodge the Mega Mole, hop to the upper tunnel (at the 
intersection), and run forward.  Stop when you see the line of Nips in the 
small pit, and wait until you see the Mega Mole running around the pit.  Use 
the Mega Mole as a platform by riding on its head, and jump to the stone ground 
when the Mole reaches the end of the pit.  Jump past the gap and get the moon 
crescent at the dead end for three extra lives.  Run back left, drop down the 
gap (without landing on the blue '!' block), and you will land on one (or two) 
Mega Moles stuck in a small pit.  Jump out of the pit, run forward without 
jumping (you can run over the pits), and stop when you are at the double 
intersection on the lowest ground.  Now, jump to the upper tunnel, and run 
across the long stretch of land until you get the third Dragon Coin at the dead 
end.  As you run back, stop and hit all three hidden blocks in the gap between 
this tunnel and the tunnel above you.  Keep running left, jump to the main 
intersection of this level (to the left of the lowest one), and jump up the 
pair of stairs to the triple tunnel intersection.  Enter the second tunnel and 
run forward to get the fourth Dragon Coin near the vertical line of yellow '!' 
blocks.  Be careful not to jump too high in this tunnel, or you will free the 
Chargin' Chick trying to kill you.  Now run back to the triple intersection and 
enter the lowest tunnel.  Run past the long stretch of land, and immediately 
stop when you see the cluster of yellow bricks.  Here, two Chargin' Chucks will 
be attacking you, leaving you little room to run.  Let one Chargin' Chuck break 
away half of the yellow bricks, and kill him when he is finished.  Run through 
the newly opened pathway, and kill the second Chargin' Chuck when he breaks 
through the other half of the yellow bricks.  After you exit this tunnel, you 
will enter the second major intersection of this level.  Now, jump over the gap 
(with the single yellow brick in the middle), and run into the lower tunnel at 
this double intersection.  Run across this tunnel as fast as you can, and stop 
when you see the small pit in the ground.  Let the Mega Mole get trapped in 
this pit, then run across the rest of the ground, and get the final Dragon Coin 
near the far right wall.  Now run all the way back until you reach the main 
intersection, fall in the pit with the yellow brick, and dodge the Mega Mole 
that will fall down shortly after.  Run forward and immediately grab a blue 
brick from the cluster before the Chargin' Chuck destroys them all.  Kill the 
Chargin' Chuck with the brick, keep walking forward, and run through the blue 
pipe to enter the final area.  Here, simply jump out of the orange pipe, run 
forward, and hit the End Marker to beat the level.  Great Job!!  You beat 
Valley of Bowser 1!

GO TO: Valley of Bowser 2




Valley Of Bowser 2 (VB2)
------------------------
Difficulty: 7/10 | Brother: Mario | Dragon Coins: 7 (5 max) | Time: 400
Enemies: Koopa, Mega Mole, Swooper


This level is inarguably the most annoying in World 7.  You will more than 
likely be crushed by the yellow stone, or get hit by an annoying Swooper.  Have 
two Capes and a Yoshi on you to make the first area easier.

You will start on the stone ground with no immediate danger.  Run forward, 
dodge the Swooper, and stop when you are hugging the moving yellow stone block. 
When the stone block moves down, jump on it while dodging another Swooper, hop 
across the stable gray stone platform, and fall into the large pit with the 
green Koopa.  Jump on the Koopa once and grab its shell.  Now jump to the 
second gray platform when the yellow blocks move up, and use the shell to kill 
the single Swooper.  Quickly jump across the third slab of yellow stone to the 
third gray platform, kill the Swooper, and fall down the fourth pit (with two  
smaller yellow blocks).  In the pit, jump on the green Koopa twice to make the 
shell bounce off the walls, jump on top of the '?' block, and let the 
invincible Koopa collide with the green shell.  Now that both shells are gone, 
get the Cape from the '?' block, and jump out of this pit to the gray platform 
when the yellow slabs of stone move up.  Kill the shelless Koopa, dodge yet 
another Swooper, and hop across the gray platform without falling in the pit.  
Here, get the shell from the green Koopa, use it to kill another Swooper, and 
jump past two more gray platforms making sure you dodge the two Swoopers at the 
end.  Drop down to the stone ground and jump on the green Koopa to get its 
shell.  Jump on the first yellow stone platform and get the first Dragon Coin 
when it moves up.  Get the mushroom from the yellow '!' block, jump across one 
more yellow platform, and break the Check Point near the green pipe.

---Check Point---

After breaking the Check Point, walk through the green pipe to enter the second 
(and annoying) area.  When you enter the second area, immediately climb up the 
few step to your left, and get the Cape from the '?' block.  Because this block 
is out of view, you need to stand at the middle of the last step, and jump to 
hit the block. &&& After getting the Cape, run to the right, and stop when you 
see the huge moving yellow slab of stone.  This part gets fairly difficult, 
especially if you have a power up or a Yoshi.  Your goal in this part of the 
level is to not get crushed by either the moving yellow stone, or the gray 
ceiling.  You will also notice that there is a narrow tunnel at the center of 
the yellow stone; that is where you want to go.  Now when the yellow stone 
moves down, jump to the small tunnel, but stay near the left edge.  When the 
yellow stone moves all the way up, RUN LIKE HELL to the right, but stop when 
you pass by two gray stone blocks.  Wait until the yellow stone starts to move 
up again, then run into the upper tunnel.  STOP when you are under the small 
hole in the ceiling, so you don't get crushed by it.  As the yellow stone moves 
down, run right again, and stop right when you exit the mouth of the tunnel.  
When the yellow stone is completely down, quickly grab the second Dragon Coin 
in the left tunnel, run back right, and stop when you see another tunnel to 
your right.  Wait until the yellow stone moves up, and when it moves down, run 
into the tunnel and stop when you are over the small pit.  You will fall into 
the pit as the yellow stone slowly descends.  When the yellow stone moves up, 
run forward, and stop when you exit the mouth of the tunnel.  Now with the 
yellow stone up again, run left to get the third Dragon Coin, and return to the 
mouth of the tunnel to avoid getting crushed.  This time, when the yellow stone 
moves up, run to the right into the third tunnel, and stop over yet another pit 
in the ground (the stone should be down by now).  When the yellow stone moves 
back up, run forward out of the pit and the tunnel, and stop when you are under 
the gap in the ceiling.  Wait until the yellow stone moves down, and run into 
the upper tunnel when it moves up again.  Like before, stop when you are under 
the gap in the ceiling, and run out of the tunnel when the yellow stone moves 
down.  Don't stop running forward as you exit the fourth tunnel, and you will 
automatically run through the fifth one.  Immediately stop when you exit the 
tunnel, and let the stone move completely up (make sure you are not moving).  
As the yellow stone moves down again, RUN LIKE HELL into the crooked tunnel, 
and stop when you exit the mouth of the tunnel (like before).  Wait until the 
yellow stone moves up, and enter the green pipe right in the tunnel when it 
begins to descend.  You may think this level is over, but sadly, it is not.  
Stay alert as you enter the third area, because you will fall down and land on 
a pushing yellow slab of stone.  Quickly run forward, climb the stone steps, 
dodge the Mega Mole, and drop down to the somewhat large pit. *** Ignore the 
mole, jump across the second pit (this pit has line of red '!' blocks over a 
line of Nips and a Mega Mole), and jump onto the second pushing yellow stone.  
Again, quickly hop across the stone steps, and fall into the Nip's pit covered 
by a line of blue '!' blocks.  Jump out of the pit, run forward past the red 
arrow, and break the End Marker to FINALLY beat the level.  Great Job!!  You 
beat the most annoying level of World 7!!

Alternative Exit:

Use this exit if you want to get all five Dragon Coins the cheap and easy way. 
The only problem is that you need a Yoshi to reach this pathway.  This area is 
almost exactly like the one from Cheese Bridge Area, except easier and faster. 
To get to this area, hit the '?' block near the yellow stone, and grab the pair 
of wings that pop out.  Walk across the bridge, and fly up to get the fourth 
Dragon Coin near the ledge.  Hover at the bottom of the screen, and you should 
get the third Dragon Coin in about five seconds.  Now go to the top of the 
screen, and get the fourth Dragon Coin after about six more seconds.  Finally, 
hover low to the ground, get the final Dragon Coin (after four seconds), and 
drop down with your Yoshi when you see the arrow composed of coins.  Nice Job!! 
You beat Valley of Bowser 2 and got all five Dragon Coins!!

Secret Exit:

To use this exit, you must have a cape.  Use your cape to kill the Mega Mole 
running around the pit, and run to the pit's right wall.  Get a good starting 
run, and fly up to the left into the large gap in the ceiling.  If you flew 
high enough, you should be out of view, and the screen should be moving left at 
a fast rate.  When you see the key and the keyhole on a bumpy pile of stone 
blocks, immediately stop, and try to drop down on the right side.  If you land 
on the left, there is a possibility that you may fall in the small gap and die. 
Now simply grab the key, put it in the keyhole, and you are done!  Excellent 
Job!!  You found the secret exit to Valley of Bowser 2!!

Normal Exit - GO TO: Valley Ghost House
Secret Exit - GO TO: Valley Fortress




Valley Ghost House (VGH)
------------------------
Difficulty: (4 to 6)/10 | Brother: Mario | Dragon Coins: 6 | Time: 300
Enemies: Eerie, Boo, Boo line


Aside from the Sunken Ghost Ship, this is probably the weirdest (and last) 
Ghost House that you will encounter.  The level itself is fairly short, but 
getting to the secret exit requires patience and skill.  Do not have a cape in 
this level because it will cause slow you down if you are trying to reach the 
secret exit.

You will start the level on the bridge near a small flight of stairs.  Climb 
the stairs, get the Fire Flower from the '?' block, and get the first Dragon 
Coin as you jump over the gap.  From here to the second area, giant bubbles 
will be bouncing around the level.  To dodge these, spin jump as you jump over 
gaps, and perform only short jumps.  After you get the first Dragon Coin, walk 
down the short flight of stairs, jump across the three small gaps (two 
platforms), and enter the yellow gate near the right wall.  When you enter this 
area, you will notice that you are hanging on a single platform with a 'P' 
switch above you.  Hit the yellow brick to make the switch drop to the ground, 
but DON'T step on it yet.  When the yellow brick stops spinning, jump on the 
brick, and get the second Dragon Coin above it.  Now step on the switch, and 
you will notice that lines of '?' blocks will appear on either side of the 
platform you are standing on.  Walk a few steps to the left, wait for a second, 
and a star will drop down and start bouncing towards you.  Grab the star and 
start running to the left ignoring the Boos and Boo lines (they can't hurt 
you).  When you see the first gap in the upper line of brown bricks, jump 
through it, and keep running on this upper level.  After about two more seconds 
of running, you will see the second Dragon Coin and a '?' block.  Ignore the 
block, get the Dragon Coin, and drop down to the lower level of brown bricks.  
Hop across the two gaps, and enter the yellow gate on stable ground.  This is 
the final (secret) area, but we cannot access either exit just yet.  Here, 
dodge the two Boos, and start running left.  Ignore the yellow gate, the third 
Boo, and the '?' block, but grab the fourth Dragon Coin on the upper platform. 
Head back right ignoring everything, and enter the yellow gate to reenter the 
second area.  Hit the yellow block again, step on the 'P' switch after moving a 
few steps to the right, and get the star that will follow you.  This time, you 
will need to run to the right to get the last Dragon Coin and the two exits.  
Run across the lines of '?' blocks and brown bricks.  When you jump past the 
first two gaps, make sure you get the fifth Dragon Coin above the center of the 
platform.  Ignore the '?' block that will pop up to save precious time.  Jump 
across two more platforms and drop down on the lower bridge with little head 
room. You will notice that this bridge is flooded by coins.  This is not a good 
thing because the bridge is fairly long and the coins will turn into brown 
bricks when the effects of the 'P' switch wear off. *** Because you want to 
find the normal exit, run quickly, but only enough to reveal the third or 
fourth yellow gate.  When the 'P' switch effect ends, enter either one of these 
gates to exit the Ghost House.  Here, run forward and break the End Marker to 
beat the level.  Nice Job!!  You beat the Valley Ghost House!!

If you are dying to know what the first two gates on the long bridge lead to, 
read the next sentence.  The first gate throws you back at the beginning of the 
level while the second gate puts you in the final (secret) area without access 
to the secret exit.

Secret Exit:

If you want to even think of getting to the secret exit, you must RUN LIKE HELL 
across the bridge.  Keep running as fast as you can, ignoring the first four 
gates so you don't waste time.  If you were fast enough, you should pass by the 
final yellow gate and get an extra life.  Open the yellow gate to enter the 
final (secret) area with a chance to access the secret exit.  In this area, you 
will see a large cluster of floating brown bricks, a line of yellow coins over 
a gap, and a 'P' switch.  Grab (DON'T press) the 'P' switch, and run across the 
large cluster of brown bricks floating in the air.  Ignore the sixth Dragon 
Coin above the gap, and run past the three vertical coins below a brick wall.  
With the switch, jump to the upper platform and go to the '?' block.  Before 
you hit the '?' block, lure any Boos away from you as far right as you can.  
Now run back to the block, and hit it to release an extending line of coins.  
Control the block so it moves in this proportion: two coins to the right and 
two coins up.  Keep moving the coins in this way until you hit a wall/ceiling 
(you will know when the music changes).  Before you hit the 'P' switch, run 
into a Boo to your right to get small (lose all your power ups).  Head back 
left to the 'P' switch, step on the switch, and climb up the brown bricks (that 
used to be coins).  After about ten steps, you should see a small gap on the 
wooden block wall (this wall is jutting out).  Jump through this gap, and you 
will land on the platform with the key and keyhole.  Put the key in the keyhole 
to beat the level.  Great Job!!  You found the secret of Valley Ghost House!!

Normal Exit - GO TO: Valley of Bowser 3
Secret Exit - GO TO: Larry's Castle #7




Valley of Bowser 3 (VB3)
------------------------
Difficulty: 4/10 | Brother: Luigi | Dragon Coins: 5 | Time: 300
Enemies: Banzai Bill, Flying Koopa


This is defiantly the easiest level of World 7.  Unfortunately, it is also 
fairly easy to fall down a large gap and die.  It is strongly recommended that 
you have two Capes to make jumping across platforms a lot easier.

A new type of platform is introduced in this level: The timed platforms.  These 
come in two variations, the one-second and the four-second platforms.  When you 
step on these platforms, they move to the right for one (or four) second(s) 
then fall down.  If you fall down with these platforms, you die.

You will start this level on a mushroom platform with three Koopas bouncing 
towards you.  Be careful, as two of the Koopas jump amazingly high.  When the 
two Koopas (jumping higher than the third) are on the ground, immediately jump 
over them as high as you can.  Now jump to the pair of white walls, and get the 
Cape from the '?' block.  Jump on the first timed platform to shortly move 
across the rope and the Koopa below.  Right when the first timed platform falls 
down, hop to the second one to move forward.  When this platform falls, drop 
down to the rope below, and jump to the third moving platform.  Because there 
is no rope below you in this section, you must not fall down.  As the platform 
falls down, jump on the flying red Koopa, and get the first Dragon Coin above 
it.  As you fall, land on the platform that will move for four seconds.  As you 
move forward, kill the two Koopas that will fly in your way, and jump past the 
platforms that will be to your right.  Using the flying Koopa as a stepping 
stone, hop past the one-second-platforms to the four-second-one.  When the 
platform reads two seconds left, drop down the one-second-platform, and get the 
second Dragon Coin.  After getting the coin, hop past the white wall, and land 
on the one-second-platform to your direct right.  Stay on the platform when it 
drops down to get the third Dragon Coin, but jump to the yellow pipe before the 
platform falls out of sight.  Head down the lower pipe to play the Bonus Game. 
(Refer to Bonus Game #1) After getting the extra lives, you will pop out of an 
orange pipe. And land on the mushroom platform below.  Jump on the trampoline 
to your right, and bounce off it to break the Check Point above you.

---Check Point---

When you fall back to the mushroom platform, run forward ignoring the '?' 
block, and jump to one of the platforms (of the three) to the right.  Jump up 
these platforms, hop past the white wall, and run across the slanted rope.  Be 
careful as you run across the rope, because three Flying Koopas will be trying 
to kill you.  Dodge these Koopas, hop past the third white wall, and land on 
the moving grass platform.  Jump from the platform when it moves diagonally 
down, kill the Flying Koopa, and hop on the four-second-platform.  When the 
platform has two seconds left, hop across three one-second platforms, and kill 
another flying Koopa.  After killing the Koopa, immediately jump on the moving 
grass platform, grab the fourth Dragon Coin, and hop on another four-second-
platform.  After about two seconds of moving, a Banzai Bill will shoot out from 
the right and pass below you.  Ignore the Banzai Bill and jump to the one-
second-platform just as the one you are on expires.  Hop past two more one-
second-platforms making sure you kill the Flying Koopa and dodge the Banzai 
Bill.  After passing the third one-second-platform, jump to the four-second-
platform and get the fifth Dragon Coin after about three seconds of moving.  As 
the platform expires, jump straight up to dodge the Banzai Bill, and land on 
the upper one-second-platform.  As the platform falls, jump to the platform 
composed of three stones, and get the extra life (you will need it).  Finally, 
jump forward to fall on the mushroom platform, and run past the End Marker to 
beat the level.  Excellent Job!!  You beat Valley of Bowser 3!

GO TO: Valley of Bowser 4




Valley of Bowser 4 (VB4)
------------------------
Difficulty: 7/10 | Brother: Luigi | Dragon Coins: 5 | Time: 300
Enemies: DB Chargin' Chuck, Flying Koopa


This is defiantly one of the harder levels in World 7.  If you want to even 
think of surviving this level, make sure you master your jumping and dodging 
skills.  One wrong move, any you will die in a pool of lava.  Having two Capes 
is strongly recommended.  Do not enter this level with a Yoshi, because you 
will lose him in the first part of the level and there is one sitting in a '?' 
block near the green vine.

Starting on the tall stone ground, run forward and slide down the slope to 
deflect the dirt balls thrown by the DB Chargin' Chuck.  When you see the lava 
pit, immediately spin jump forward to kill the Flying Koopa, and land on the 
floating white platform.  When the platform starts to sink, jump past the rest 
of the lava, and on the stone ground ahead.  Now run forward up the steep 
slope, dodge the dirt balls thrown from the DB Chargin' Chuck, and jump on him 
until he dies.  Jump past the blue pipe, get the mushroom from the yellow '!' 
block, and walk to the ledge of the stone ground.  This part is tricky, as you 
need to jump past the white platforms and dodge the three Flying Koopas at the 
same time.  To prevent getting hit, make sure all of your jumps are spin jumps. 
Spin jump across the platforms making sure you kill the Koopas, and jump to the 
stone ground when you see green pipe is in view.  Head down the green pipe to 
enter a sub-area.  This area might pose a problem to some as it is covered in 
ice, and it is dotted with Spiked Tops.  Heading to the left, spin jump past 
the floating blocks of ice to deflect the Spinies, and make sure you don't fall 
in the Guppy-filled water.  After jumping past two ice blocks, jump on the icy 
platform, and get the cape from the '?' block.  Because you have the cape, you 
can kill the Guppies allowing you to swim in the water.  Jump in the water, 
swim to the left while killing the Guppies, and get the first Dragon Coin near 
the second Guppy. Swim past one more Guppy, jump to the icy ground to the left, 
and enter the purple pipe to exit the area.  When you reenter the level out of 
the blue pipe, immediately kill the DB Chargin' Chuck to the left, jump past 
the large lava pit (with the three white platforms) the same way as before.  
When you reach the stone ground with the green pipe again, jump past the pipe, 
and hit the yellow brick to free a green plant.  When you reach the top of the 
vine, jump to the stone ground to your left, and get the Yoshi from the '?' 
block.  With the Yoshi on hand, jump past the green trampoline and the small 
gap, and spin jump to the right on the pile of yellow bricks.  Keep spin 
jumping as you plunge through the bricks, and enter the gray tunnel to your 
right before you fall down.  Walk forward, hit the yellow brick stuck in the 
small tunnel to reveal an extra life (ignore if for now), and drop straight 
down getting the second Dragon Coin.  When you fall on a white sinking 
platform, immediately jump forward past two more platforms making sure you get 
the falling extra life and to kill the Flying Koopa.  As you land on the gray 
platform, jump up the various cliffs (to the right), kill the DB Chargin' 
Chuck, and get the third Dragon Coin below the highest cliff.  Now jump to the 
white sinking platform to your right, and break the Check Point as you jump to 
the stone ground.

---Check Point---

Use Yoshi to eat any dirt balls the DB Chargin' Chuck may throw at you, and 
kill that pest when you walk under the stone wall.  Jump to the sinking white 
platform then to the yellow '!' block right above the lava.  Jump straight up 
to hit the '?' block and to get its Cape.  Jump past the second white platform 
and land on the stone ground to your right.  Run forward ignoring the DB 
Chargin' chuck and the cliffs, and jump to the fourth Dragon Coin making sure 
you land on the white platform.  Quickly jump back out of the lava pit before 
the white platform sinks, climb up the cliffs, and kill the DB Chargin' Chuck. 
Jump and run through the upper right tunnel, and drop straight down to land on 
a yellow '!' block.  When the FB Chargin' Chuck's dirt ball falls into the 
lava, immediately jump to the white sinking platform, and land on the stone 
ground to your right.  Run up and down the two slopes, and jump past the lava 
pit ignoring the white sinking platform.  Kill the DB Chargin' Chuck, walk 
forward, and stop when you see the large lava pool below.  This part is very 
tricky and requires exceptional timing.  When the Flying Koopa starts to fly 
away from you, jump on its head, and land on the first white platform to the 
right.  Making sure you dodge the dirt balls, jump past two more white 
platforms, and land on the line of blue '!' blocks with the green trampoline.  
Carefully walk to the ledge of the line of blue '!' blocks to get the final 
Dragon Coin, and jump over the lava pit (below the stone slope) to land on the 
first white sinking platform.  Jump back to the stone ground to your right, any 
you will see a key trapped in the stone, and a key hole next to you. *** Ignore 
these because you do not want to go to the secret exit, jump over the stone 
cliff, and run into the End Marker to beat the level.  Great Job!!  You beat 
Chocolate Island 4!

Secret Exit:

To access the secret exit, you must have a Yoshi.  Stand on the ground so you 
are right next to the key, and press B to make Yoshi's tongue go through the 
stone and grab the key.  With the key in Yoshi's mouth, jump to the line of two 
stone blocks, and run to the keyhole to beat the level.  Excellent Job!!  You 
found the secret exit for Chocolate Island 4!!

Normal Exit - GO TO: Larry's Castle #7
Secret Exit - GO TO: Star Road 5




Larry's Castle #7 (LC7)
-----------------------
Difficulty: 7.5/10 | Brother: Mario | Dragon Coins: 5 | Time: 300
Enemies: Ball 'n' Chain, Dry Bones, MagiKoopa, Larry


Welcome to the seventh (and the hardest) castle!  Time is very short in this 
level because the brown platform in the first area limits your speed.  It is 
strongly recommended that you have two capes on you, so the second area will be 
easier to navigate through.

You will start on a stone platform near a huge pool of lava (there is a 
platform of brown bricks above the lava).  Run forward, jump to the center of 
the line of bricks, and it will start moving forward.  This line of brown 
bricks is exactly the same as the one in Roy's Castle, except it is about twice 
as long.  Wait for about two seconds, and the platform will start to climb over 
stone steps with yellow spikes.  Now a Ball 'n' Chain will be spinning in your 
way, so spin jump to dodge it and the brown platform will move straight again. 
Dodge five more Ball 'n' Chains by staying in the middle of the platform and 
spin jumping over (or ducking under) them.  After you pass the fifth Ball 'n' 
Chain, the brown platform will start to move down the stone steps.  Stay in the 
middle of the platform and spin jump to dodge three more Ball 'n' Chains (these 
Ball 'n' Chains are on separate stone blocks).  This part can get very tricky, 
and will require exact timing and speed.  See the floating brown bricks in the 
air between the last two Ball 'n' Chains?  You must jump up both before the 
brown platform moves straight up.  Make sure you are standing on the upper 
brown brick (of the two), and immediately jump to the brown platform as it 
straightens out above you.  Dodging the single Ball 'n' Chain quickly run to 
the right, grab the first Dragon Coin, and get back to the middle of the stone 
platform (now moving left) before you fall off.  Dodge three more Ball 'n' 
Chains by very short spin jumps, and hop on the immobile line of brown bricks 
with many attached Ball 'n' Chains.  Staying at the same speed as the moving 
brown platform below you, walk to the left, dodge the three Ball 'n' Chains, 
and ignore the yellow '!' block and the second Dragon Coin near the ceiling.  
When you reach the end of the line of brown bricks, immediately jump to the 
moving brown platform as it climbs up to the right.  Jump to get the second 
Dragon Coin, and continue moving forward making sure you are at the middle of 
the platform (moving right).  Ignore the Ball 'n' chains below you (they cannot 
reach you) and get the mushroom from the yellow '!' block.  After about five 
seconds of moving right, two more Ball 'n' Chains will appear right below you. 
Spin jump to dodge these pests, and the platform will start to descend by 
moving back and forth.  Stay with the platform, dodge the single Ball 'n' Chain 
when you see the lava, and the brown platform will begin to ascend to the 
right.  Jump up the steps made by the platform as it ascends, and when it 
reaches the top, it will straighten out over a large stone platform covered 
with yellow spikes.  Dodge another Ball 'n' Chain, grab the third Dragon Coin 
above the pest, and you will see a yellow gate near the right wall.  DO NOT 
enter this gate!  Instead, jump into the right side of the gap, and push 
against the right wall as you fall down.  After about two seconds of falling, 
you will enter a small stone tunnel with a few useful goodies.  Run through the 
Check Point, grab the last two Dragon Coins, get the mushroom (only if you need 
it), and enter the yellow gate near the right wall.

---Check Point---

When you start this area (in a stone tunnel), run to the right and kill the Dry 
Bones walking towards you.  Run down the escalator to exit the tunnel, kill 
another Dry Bones, and jump into the second tunnel when the wooden spike is up. 
Right when you enter the tunnel, a MagiKoopa will appear and try to hurt you.  
Duck down (or spin jump) do dodge his spell, and run out of the tunnel when he 
disappears and when the second wooden spike is up.  You will see a vertical 
line of yellow bricks blocking your path forward.  If you have a cape, you can 
simply spin your way through, but you need to use a MagiKoopa to break a brick 
of you do not have one.  So kill the Dry Bones, stand right next to the line of 
yellow bricks, and let the MagiKoopa break one of the lower bricks with his 
spell.  Jump-duck through the hole in the line of bricks, dodge the MagiKoopa 
when he appears again, and jump across the small pit of lava.  Get the mushroom 
from the yellow '!' block, run through the tunnel to your right (spin jump over 
the spikes), and kill another Dry Bones as you exit the tunnel.  Jump over the 
lava pit making sure to dodge the fireball, and stand right next to another 
vertical line of yellow bricks.  Wait until the MagiKoopa makes a hole in the 
line, and hop through by jump-ducking.  Jump into the tunnel to your right, and 
run through only when the four spikes are recessed back.  Jump across another 
lava pit with a fireball, jump up to the line of yellow bricks, and walk 
across. Make sure you dodge the wooden spikes, the fireballs, and the 
MagiKoopa's spells as you walk through.  After passing by the third wooden 
spike, the line of yellow bricks will connect to stone ground.  Run across the 
stone, kill the Dry Bones, and run down the escalator.  Dodge another MagiKoopa 
and Dry Bones, get the Cape from the green '!', and enter the red gate to fight 
the Boss.

Boss Battle: Larry

Does this place look familiar?  It better be because this is a similar setting 
of Iggy's battle!  Just like as you fought Iggy, jump on Larry's head when the 
sea-saw tilts to the left, and dodge his fireballs he may throw at you.  The 
thing that makes this Boss battle hard, it the three fireballs that will shoot 
up from the lavas pit below.  Spin jump to dodge the fireballs, and keep 
jumping on Larry until he falls into the lava and dies.  Nice Job!!  You beat 
the seventh castle and killed Larry!!

GO TO: Bowser's Castle (Front Door)




Valley Fortress (VF)
--------------------
Difficulty: 6/10 | Brother: Mario | Dragon Coins: 5 | Time: 300
Enemies: Bony Beetle, Dry Bones


Welcome to the Valley Fortress!  This is the last (and the hardest) fortress 
you will have to play through.  Surprisingly, your main enemy in this level is 
not the Bony Beetles or the Dry Bones; it is the gray spikes that try to kill 
you.  I strongly recommend you to have two Capes with you as the spikes will 
surely hit you (especially near the end).

You will start this level on an elevated stone platform.  Run forward and 
immediately stop when you see the stone spikes above the stone steps.  Wait for 
the spikes to fall down, and then quickly run down the steps when they start to 
slowly rise.  Jump to the small platform with the green '!' block, get the Cape 
from it, and wait for the spikes to fall down again.  When they start to rise, 
quickly run up the stone steps to the right, and carefully jump across the 
yellow spiked pit to the stone tunnel.  Use your cape to float down slowly and 
to avoid getting hit by the yellow spikes on the right wall.  Run through the 
small tunnel, and you will enter a room with enemies roaming the floor and 
spikes covering the ceiling.  Quickly run forward to avoid the falling spike 
and use your cape to kill the Dry Bones.  Head a few steps back, and get the 
first Dragon Coin where the falling spike originally was.  Keep spinning 
forward at a quick pace to dodge two more falling spikes, and to kill a Dry 
Bones and a Bony Beetle.  Jump through the small tunnel to exit the spiked 
covered room, and to enter a place with falling stone spikes.  Walk to the 
ledge of the stone ground you are on (near the first gap with two yellow 
spikes), and wait for the stone spike to crash down on the small gray platform. 
When the stone spike is fully retraced, jump and hover across the two spiked 
pits, and land on the large gray platform.  Again, walk to the ledge of the 
platform you are standing on (the two pits will now have three yellow spikes), 
and wait for the stone spike to fall down.  When it rises up again, spin jump 
to the small platform below the spike (this will get you the second Dragon 
Coin), and jump to another large gray platform to the right.  This part is 
fairly difficult as you need to dodge THREE gray spikes without touching the 
yellow spikes in the pits.  When the spikes begin to retrace, immediately jump 
across the gray platforms as quickly as you can.  As you jump past the second 
small gray platform, make sure you get the third Dragon Coin in the air.  You 
will more than likely get hit, so don't get frustrated over this part of the 
level.  When you jump past the third spike and land on the large stone 
platform, walk under the stone wall and break the Check Point.

---Check Point---

Look to your right; you will see a huge lava pool raging with fireballs.  The 
only way to pass this lava pit is to jump across the floating gray stones to 
your right.  Now spin jump to the first floating platform (to dodge the 
fireball), jump on the Dry Bones, and get the mushroom from the yellow '!' 
block.  Before the Dry Bones regenerates, spin jump to the second floating 
platform, and kill another Dry Bones.  The third floating stone is to the 
right, but is right near the pool of lava.  So carefully spin jump over the 
lava pool (to dodge the two fireballs), and land on the third platform with the 
Bony Beetle.  Jump on the beetle and spin jump (not too high) over the pool of 
lava, and land on the gray platform floating on it.  If you jump too high, you 
will hit the yellow spikes covering the left side of the stone wall.  Walk 
under the wall, and stop when you reach the ledge of the platform.  To your 
right, you will see a gray spike moving four times faster than normal speed.  
So when the spike shoots up, immediately jump past the lava pool, and run to 
the left side of the gray platform you just landed on.  Jump past the next 
spike in the same fashion, but spin jump to dodge the fireball.  Staying on the 
middle of the platform you landed on, slowly walk right next to the third 
moving spike, and jump past the lava pit and under the fourth stone spike when 
both spikes move up.  Make sure you jump high to get the fourth Dragon Coin 
over the lava pit.  Jump past the next lava pit in the same fashion, but jump 
(spin jumping is too dangerous) only when you are sure you won't collide with 
the fireball. Immediately stop when you land on the gray platform to avoid 
getting hit by the gray spike in the ground, and quickly get run to the left 
ledge to get the last Dragon Coin (when the spikes are up of course).  Now 
quickly run right, jump over the last gray spike when it is retracted down, and 
enter the red gate near the right wall to fight Renzor. (Find: VDRZR)

GO TO: Bowser's Castle (Back Door)




Bowser's Castle (BSC)
---------------------
Difficulty: 6/10 | Brother: Mario | Dragon Coins: 0 | Time: 800 or 600
Enemies: Chargin' Chuck, Dry Bones, Hot Head, Koopa, Mecha-Koopas, Lil' Sparky, 
Thwomp, Ninjis, Bowser!


Finally, you have reached Bowser's Castle!  Surprisingly, Bowser's castle to 
quite easy compared to the other levels in World 7.  Unless you want to enter 
the fifth door, I require you to have two capes.

NOTE: because this level is different from all other castles, I have written it 
in a different format to try to make it easier.  In this level, you have to 
choose two doors of the eight listed below (one from doors 1 to 4, and one from 
doors 5 to 8).  I marked the easiest areas for each hallway with a star (*).


Front Door
----------
The Hallways:

You will begin in a long hallway with four doors.  You can tell the number of 
the door by looking at the stone structure near a yellow gate.  The structures 
will vaguely represent a number, so if you want to enter a specific door, use 
the numbers as reference.

Door 1:

From the hallway, walk forward, and enter the first yellow gate you encounter. 
Here, you will see that you will be automatically pushed forward, and there are 
wooden logs trying to crush you.  You will also have to jump over many lava 
pits with raging fireballs.  The good news is that because you hit all of the 
colored '!' switches, various colored '!' blocks will be hovering over some 
parts of the lava pits.  Now stay in the back and wait for the first wooden log 
to fall down.  When the log rises back up, spin jump over the first two lava 
pits, and stay on the larger stone platform until the next log falls.  Stay 
back as it falls, and immediately spin jump over the next two lava pits when it 
rises again.  Stay to the left of the screen until the third log falls, and 
spin jump over the large lava pit (using the colored '!' blocks as a platform) 
when it retracts.  Enter the yellow gate near the right wall to enter the 
second hallway (doors 5 to 8).

*Door 2:

When you start in the hallway, run forward ignoring the first yellow gate, and 
cross the first bridge.  Here, enter the yellow gate to see what dangers lie 
ahead of you.  After entering the gate, you will be on a stone platform with a 
large fence in the sky, and spikes covering the ground ahead of you.  Dodge the 
two bouncing fireballs that will be heading to the left, and hop on the fence 
above you.  Climb to the right and enter the first switch grate.  Because you 
are on the other side, the bouncing fireballs cannot hurt you, but the climbing 
Koopas can.  To avoid getting hit by the Koopas, climb all the way to the top 
and move right.  Keep heading right ignoring the Koopas and the bouncing 
fireballs, and drop down when you are right above the yellow gate.  Enter the 
yellow gate to get top the second hallway (doors 5 to 8).

Door 3:

From the start of the hallway, run forward passing two gates and across two 
small bridges, and enter the yellow gate.  This place is very tricky to 
navigate through as the rugs may be hiding Mecha-Koopas.  The rugs with a large 
diamond pattern hide gaps in the floor, so make sure you jump over them.  Walk 
forward, spin jump to kill the Mecha-Koopa, and stop when you are under the 
second rug above you.  Jump through the gap, land on the left side of the 
ground, and walk left until you are under the rug above you on the third floor. 
Again, jump up through gap and land on the left side.  Spin jump to the right 
to hop over the gap (the one you just jumped through), and to kill the Mecha-
Koopa.  Keep walking right, jump to another gap to reach the fourth floor, and 
land on the left side.  Run all the way left to get an extra life behind a rug, 
and run back right making sure you jump over the gap you hopped through.  Keep 
running right, kill the Mecha-Koopa, and drop through the gap to the third 
floor.  Immediately spin jump to kill another Mecha-Koopa, and drop down the 
gap to your right to reach the second floor.  Move right, spin jump twice to 
kill the two Mecha-Koopas, and drop down the gap near the vertical line of 
stone blocks.  Back on the first floor, kill the first Mecha-Koopa, and run 
across the line of stone blocks making sure you kill the second Mecha-Koopa.  
Enter the yellow gate near the right well to access the second hallway (doors 5 
to 8).

Door 4:

To get to the fourth door, run all the way right until you are stopped by a 
wall, and enter the yellow gate to your left.  Here, you will be dodging Hot 
Heads and Lil' Sparkies, and you will be jumping across moving stone blocks.  
From the stone block you start on, walk forward, and stop when you reach the 
ledge.  When the white stone block moves under you (and when the Lil' is in 
ahead of you), immediately drop down on the moving block and jump through the 
skinny gap when it moves all the way right.  On the stable stone block, walk to 
the ledge, jump to the upper white block when moves to the left, and drop down 
another white stone block below you.  When the two blocks move forward, spin 
jump (to dodge the Lil' Sparky) to the hovering gray block.  When the Lil' 
Sparky is out of your way, spin jump forward, and land on the second stone 
block ahead of you.  Dodge the Lil' Sparky, and jump to the three connected 
stone blocks.  Be careful as two Lil' Sparkies and a Hot head roam around these 
blocks!  So dodge the enemies, spin jump over the small stone block, and land 
on the long stone block below you to the right.  Walk forward and enter the 
yellow gate to enter the second hallway (doors 5 to 8).


Enter second Hallway


Door 5:

If you want to get through the fifth area (door) alive, you must be small 
Mario, meaning that you can not have ANY power ups and you must not be Luigi.  
To get to this door, simply enter the first gate in the second hallway.  When 
you enter this area, you will notice that there are gray spikes and Thwomps (in 
an alternating order) to your right.  This pattern of Thwomps and gray spikes 
lasts for the whole area so you better be careful to dodge them.  Stay where 
you are and wait for the gray spikes to plunge all the way down.  When you hear 
the crash they will start to quickly rise so get ready to run.  The instant you 
see the first gray spike rise out of the ground, RUN LIKE HELL and pray to god 
you do not get hit by a Thwomp.  When you see the last spike, perform a duck 
slide to avoid getting crushed.  Now that you are passed the long trap, go 
right, and enter the yellow gate to get to the final area.

Door 6:

Just like you did for the second door in the first hallway, enter the second 
gate.  You will enter the submerged area out of an orange pipe.  When you drop 
on the stone ground below you, swim to the right, and stop when you are under 
the gap.  Swim up the gap, dodge the yellow spikes, and land on the upper 
platform to the left.  When the moving wall is retracted to the right, stomp on 
the (not so) Dry Bones and swim up the gap all the way to the left.  As you 
land on the third platform to your right, dodge the many Fish Bones swimming to 
the left, and get the Cape from the '?' block.  Go into (not completely 
through) the gap above you, but make sure you dodge the yellow spikes on either 
sides of the gap.  You will see two stone blocks move to the right, swim up the 
gap, but do not get hit by the spikes.  Quickly swim up to the right, go 
through another gap with yellow spikes on both sides, and land on the platform 
to the left.  Kill the Dry Bones moving on the platform, and immediately head 
up the gap to the right.  Make sure you are careful enough to dodge the pair of 
Ball 'n' Chains, but go quickly to avoid getting crushed by another yellow 
spiked wall.  In this small section, Ball 'n' Chains will be spinning around 
the water trying to kill you.  Avoid these pests, swim up, and enter the gap in 
the right ceiling.  When the yellow spiked blocks are moved to the right, 
quickly swim to the gap between them.  Move with the spiked blocks as they move 
back left, but swim in the middle to dodge the Ball 'n' Chain and the yellow 
spikes on the low ceiling.  Quickly swim up the gap at the left before you get 
crushed, land on the safe platform to your right, and enter the green pipe to 
get to the final area.

Door 7:

To get to this door, enter the third yellow gate in the second hallway.  Here 
you will see various Bowser Statues shooting fireballs at you.  To dodge these, 
you can duck under them or spin jump over them.  Walk forward, dodge the 
fireballs, and jump past the first two Bowser Statues.  Now you will see an 
orange statue bouncing towards you.  Do easily dodge this statue, jump on the 
stone block below the third gray statue, and wait for the bouncing one to pass 
you.  When it does, drop down from the stone block, run forward, and jump past 
the fourth gray statue, and another orange will bounce towards you.  When the 
orange statue stops, immediately jump over it, spin jump past the lava pit (to 
dodge the fireball), and jump on the stone block below the red '!' one.  Jump 
past the last gray statue, dodge another orange jumping statue (by ducking), 
and run up the stairs.  Go through the yellow gate to enter the final area.

*Door 8:

From the second hallway, run all the way to the right, and enter the yellow 
gate near the right wall.  This area is loaded with Jumping Chargin' Chucks, so 
you better be careful where you jump.  To get the most points and make this 
level easier, I suggest you to kill each Chargin' Chuck one at a time.  Run 
forward and kill off the first two Chargin' Chucks before they duplicate.  
After they die, jump on the blue '!' block over the spiked pit, and get the 
Cape from the green '!' block above you.  Quickly jump forward, kill the next 
Chargin' Chuck with your cape, and do the same with fourth the one on the hill. 
Jump down from the hill to kill another Chargin' Chuck, jump past the spiked 
pit, and kill the sixth one before it multiplies.  From here to the end, simply 
spin as you move forward to kill the next two Chargin' Chucks.  Enter the 
yellow gate near the right wall to reach the final area.


Final Area (Back Door starts here):

When you first enter this area, the whole room will be fairly dark, but light 
enough to navigate through.  Run forward, and hit the red '?' switch near the 
steps.  Did you notice the disco ball under the reserve box when you first 
enter this area?  Now that you hit the switch, the disco ball will turn on 
causing a beam of light to slowly move back and fourth across the screen.  Run 
up the stairs, spin jump on the Ninji, and jump past the lava pit to the first 
vertical line of stone blocks.  Jump over four more stone blocks to land on the 
stone ground, kill another Ninji and a Mecha-Koopa, and jump into the small 
tunnel to the right.  Run through the small tunnel and kill another pair of 
Ninjis. Jump past the stone block, kill the Mecha-Koopa walking towards you, 
and kill another two Ninjis past the second stone block.  Jump past the lava 
pit, run past the small bridge on the short platform, and climb the two steps. 
Gather all of your courage and enter the red gate to fight Bowser!


Boss Battle: Bowser
-------------------
You will fight Bowser on top of his castle, and thunder will be cracking in the 
dark sky (Scary, isn't it?).  A strange clown hovercraft will slowly appear 
from the sky, Bowser will pop out of it, and the final battle will begin!  
Bowser will now move back and fourth across the screen slightly swooping down 
in the middle.  Do not jump while he is above you, or the green blades of the 
hovercraft will damage you.  After four swoops, Bowser will stop at the left of 
the screen and throw two Mecha-Koopas to the ground.  When Bowser starts moving 
again, spin jump to kill one of the Mecha-Koopas, and stun the second one by 
jumping on it.  Pick up the stunned Mecha-Koopa, and time yourself to hit 
Bowser when you throw it in the air (preferably at the corner of the screen).  
If you hit Bowser, he will cry out in pain, and the clown over craft will shed 
a tear.  Repeat this entire process once more.  When you hit him for the second 
time, Bowser will hide in his hovercraft, and it will disappear out of view.  
After a few seconds, the hovercraft will reappear and move past you.  Ignore 
the hovercraft as it cannot damage you (even when it enlarges), and focus on 
the fireballs that will soon fall to the ground.  Dodge the fireballs by 
staying between two ones already on the ground, and jump between two more 
falling ones if they pose any danger.  When the fireballs stop falling, the 
hovercraft will return, and Peach will throw you a mushroom from it.  Grab the 
mushroom and start phase 2 of the final battle!  In this phase, Bowser's 
hovercraft will move faster, and he will throw bowling balls at you twice 
before the releases the Mecha-Koopas.  When Bowser throws these giant bowling 
balls, spin jump to bounce off of them, but make sure you try to jump away from 
Bowser.  After he throws the second Bowling Ball, he will throw two more Mecha-
Koopas.  Like before, spin jump to kill one of the Mecha-Koopas, and use the 
other one to hurt Bowser.  Repeat this process once more and Bowser will fly 
away again and throw fireballs for the second time.  Dodge the fireballs the 
same way as you did before, get the mushroom from Peach, and start the final 
phase of the battle!  Now Bowser is really pissed off and will try to crush you 
with his hovercraft.  To avoid getting hit, stay on the ground as much as 
possible.  After about ten attempts to crush you, he will throw two more Mecha-
Koopas.  Just as before, spin jump to kill one, and stun the other and use it 
to hit Bowser.  Repeat this once more to kill Bowser and beat the game!  
Excellent Job, you beat the game!!!  Now watch Peach safely fall from the 
hovercraft and Bowser fly away!  Enjoy the end scene!


Back Door:
----------
If you went through the Back Door, simply start reading the walkthrough from 
Final Area in the Front Door section.  The only difference between the Front 
Door's Final Area and the Back Door's is that there is a Check Point to the 
left of the red gate leading to Bowser.

GO TO: Star World 1 (If you have not already beaten that world)





*******************
World 8: Star World
*******************


Star World 1 (SW1)
------------------
Difficulty: 3/10 | Brother: Mario | Dragon Coins: 5 | Time: 300
Enemies: Flying Koopa


Welcome to the first of the five levels of Star World!  This level is fairly 
easy compared to the other ones in this world.  You will be digging through 
masses and masses of yellow bricks with no turning back, so you only have one 
shot of getting all the Dragon Coins!  You MUST have a cape with you to enable 
you to dig diagonally down.  This level contains the RED Yoshi.

You will start on a long stone with a mushroom and a gap to the right.  Run 
forward, grab the mushroom and drop down the gap to land on a huge cluster of 
yellow bricks. *** If you want to get all of the Dragon Coins, do not spin jump 
yet.  Instead run all the way to the right, and look down.  When the screen 
moves down, you should see the first Dragon Coin buried in the middle of the 
bricks about six blocks left of you.  Run to the left until you are directly 
over the Dragon Coin, and spin jump to dig through the bricks and get the coin. 
Again you will land on a gray stone platform.  This time, run all the way left, 
and fall down the small gap near the left wall to land on the second cluster of 
yellow bricks.  Just like before, look down, align yourself over the second 
Dragon Coin, and spin jump to break the bricks and get the coin.  Right when 
you get the Dragon Coin, try to shift to the left block as you continue 
digging.  After about five more seconds of digging, get the Cape to the left, 
and drop down to the third stone platform.  Run right, drop down the gap to the 
cluster of yellow bricks, and align yourself over the third Dragon Coin near 
the left wall.  Dig through the yellow bricks, get the third Dragon Coin, and 
land on the fourth gray platform below you.  Don't fall down the gap just yet, 
or you will miss an extra life!  Run right, jump past two gaps, and stand near 
the ledge of the small right platform.  Move one step right, and quickly jump 
four times to rotate the yellow bricks above you and to get an extra life 
trapped within the bricks.  Now it is time for some fun!  Drop down the gap 
near the ledge you are standing on, spin jump to break two layers of yellow 
bricks below you, and get the star to become invincible!!  Break two more 
yellow bricks, and kill the two Koopas when you land on the gray platform.  Run 
left and jump past the gap to kill two more Koopas, and drop down the gap to 
kill another pair of Koopas on the cluster of yellow bricks.  Now run to the 
left, align yourself over the fourth Dragon Coin (tilt slightly to the right), 
and spin jump to break more yellow bricks.  After you get the fourth Dragon 
Coin, immediately tilt to the left to get the fifth one and to fall to another 
gray platform.  From here, run left to drop down the gap, and spin jump to dig 
through more yellow bricks.  As you fall grab the star and try to hit as many 
Flying Koopas as possible to get the most points.  Stay to the left side to 
grab the red baby Yoshi, and feed it once your invincibility runs out and when 
you finish digging through the bricks.  Once you feed baby Yoshi five enemies, 
he will grow big and display a message saying that he can spit fireballs from 
all Koopa shells!  Take your new Yoshi, run through the green pipe to the 
right, and break the End Marker in the final area to beat the level.  Excellent 
Job!!  You beat Star World 1 and got a new Yoshi!

Secret Exit:

When you land on the bricks, run all the way to the right and spin jump when 
you hit the wall.  Do not move as you move through the gap and you will 
eventually land on a gray platform with the key and keyhole.  Simply put the 
key into the keyhole to end the level.  Nice Job!!  You found the secret to 
Star World 1!

Normal Exit - GO TO: Star World 1
Secret Exit - GO TO: Star World 2




Star World 2 (SW2)
------------------
Difficulty: 3.5/10 | Brother: Mario | Dragon Coins: 5 | Time: 300
Enemies: Blurp, Rip Van Fish


This is the level where you will get the beloved blue Yoshi (Who can fly).  
Although not as easy as the first, this level is quite easy and should not 
cause you much trouble.  Be quick to grab the first star at the beginning of 
the level, or the blue baby Yoshi will eat it!

You will start the level by appearing from a purple pipe underwater.  
Instantly, a star will slowly descend from the surface, so dodge the Blurp and 
grab it to become invincible.  Quickly swim back, get the first Dragon Coin 
near the pipe, and grab the blue baby Yoshi from the blue egg.  Use Yoshi to 
swim forward near the ground, and eat any Rip Van Fish in your way.  Get the 
second Dragon Coin near the first batch of Rip Van Fish, and continue to swim 
forward quickly to preserve invincibility time.  When you see the triangle of 
Blurps, eat only two of them, and ignore the rest.  After the Blurps pass by 
you, a '?' block will appear.  If you are still invincible, the block will have 
another star, but if you are not, it will have a measly coin.  After getting 
your item, slowly eat one of the Rip Van Fish to the right of the '?' block, 
and hop on the blue Yoshi when it grows.  A message will tell you that the blue 
Yoshis can fly with any color of Koopa shell.  Because this special power makes 
moving across levels a hell lot easier, the Blue Yoshi is inarguably the best 
of the four different colored Yoshis.  With your new Yoshi, eat any Rip Van 
Fish that have awaken (try to dodge the rest), and swim up to get the third 
Dragon Coin.  Drop back down to get the fourth Dragon Coin (beneath the 
second), dodge the six Blurps (in two separate waves), and dodge another 
triangle of Blurps.  When you see the final wave of Rip Van Fish floating down, 
drop on the ground, and walk past them to avoid waking them up.  Swim when you 
reach the ledge, swim up and forward, and you will see a green pipe and a long 
tunnel underneath the pipe. *** Ignore the long tunnel, swim straight up, and 
swim forward to get the final Dragon Coin.  Drop down to the stone ledge and 
swim through the green pipe to go back above water.  When you appear from a 
white pipe, jump past the flooded gap, and run forward to break the End Marker 
and beat the level.  Great Job!!  You beat Star World 2 and got the Blue Yoshi!

Secret Exit:

Ignore the ledge near the green pipe, slowly drop down as you swim forward, and 
swim through the long curved tunnel.  When you see the key, use Yoshi to eat 
it, and drop down the pit to your right to put it in the keyhole and finish the 
level.  Excellent Job!!  You found the secret exit to Star World 2 and got the 
blue Yoshi!

Normal Exit - GO TO: Star World 2
Secret Exit - GO TO: Star World 3




Star World 3 (SW3)
------------------
Difficulty: 2/10 | Brother: Luigi | Dragon Coins: 5 | Time: 200
Enemies: Lakitu, Spiny


This is the shortest level in the entire game (hold the Top Secret Area).  If 
you want to access the secret exit or get all five Dragon Coins, you cannot 
simply run past the End Marker.  This level contains the yellow baby Yoshi.

You will start this very short level on a pile of blue bricks.  There will be a 
Lakitu hovering above you, the first Dragon Coin to your left, and a yellow 
baby Yoshi and a silver 'P' switch to the left.  Grab the first Dragon Coin as 
you dodge the Spinies, and grab the baby Yoshi when it pops out of its egg.  
Feed your Yoshi with the falling Spinies, and it will grow big after it eats 
five.  A message will tell you that the yellow Yoshi can stomp the ground 
(killing any enemies around you) with any color of Koopa shell!  With your 
yellow Yoshi, jump on the silver 'P' switch to turn the Spinies into coins, and 
grab as many silver coins as you can.  When the 'P' switch effects wear off, 
hop off your Yoshi, and grab a blue brick on the ground.  Use your brick to 
knock the Lakitu off his cloud, and use the steps composed of blue bricks to 
get the second Dragon Coin and to hop to the cloud.  Now that you are on the 
cloud, hover straight up, enter the gap in the middle of the line of stone 
blocks, and hop to the left side of the platform. *** Ignore the '?' block, 
jump across the gap, and jump on the platform with the keyhole (you will not 
exit through the keyhole because you do not have a key).  Run across the 
platform, jump over the tall wall (composed of stone bricks), and you will soar 
across the End Marker to the other side.  Grab the last three Dragon Coins in a 
triangular pattern, and walk left to break the End Marker.  Congratulations!  
You beat Star World 3, got all five Dragon Coins, and got a new Yoshi!!

Secret Exit:

Hit the '?' to reveal a key.  Grab the key, jump across the large gap, and put 
the key intro the keyhole to beat the level.  Excellent job!!  You found the 
secret exit to Star World 3 and got a new Yoshi!

Normal Exit - GO TO: Star World 3
Secret Exit - GO TO: Star World 4




Star World 4 (SW4)
------------------
Difficulty: 5/10 | Brother: Luigi | Dragon Coins: 5 | Time: 300
Enemies: Flying Koopa, Koopa


This is the fourth level in Star World.  You can only access the Secret Exit if 
you already hit the red and green '!' switches.  You must have a mushroom (Cape 
recommended) if you want to use the Secret Exit.  This level contains the red 
Yoshi (Just like Star World 1).

From the mushroom platform, run forward, jump to the tall platform, and grab 
the red baby Yoshi.  Jump past the three gray rotating platform, land on the 
tall mushroom platform, and eat the Koopa.  Eat another Koopa on the next 
platform and jump on the three rotating platforms when the first Dragon Coin is 
in view.  Grab the Dragon Coin, jump to the single mushroom platform to the 
right, and eat the two blue Koopas.  Jump across the large gap to land on 
another mushroom platform, and eat the red Koopa to make the red baby Yoshi 
grow.  If you haven't gotten the red Yoshi in the first star level, a message 
will tell you that the red Yoshi can spit three fireballs from its mouth with 
any color Koop shell.  Hop on the Yoshi, jump to the platform directly below 
you, and grab the blue Koopa to make your Yoshi sprout wings.  Drop down again 
and hover to the fourth platform directly below you to get the second Dragon 
coin.  Fly forward staying under the line of Flying Koopas, and fly to the 
platform at the right of the line.  Get the Cape from the '?' block and 
continue to fly forward.  Fly past the next mushroom platform, but get the 
third Dragon Coin from the three rotating gray platforms.  Jump to the long 
platform to your right, spit out your shell, and eat the blue Koopa under the 
right edge of the platform.  Fly forward staying over the spinning gray 
platforms and the next two mushroom ones, and fly under another line of Flying 
Koopas.  Fly up the ascending mushroom platforms, hover past the spinning gray 
platforms, and spit out the shell when you see the long platform composed of 
stone blocks. *** Use the spinning platforms to jump on top of the orange pipe 
to get the fourth Dragon Coin.  Jump forward and float down to pass the two 
green pipes and to land on the mushroom platform to the right.  Kill the red 
Koopa, jump past the second mushroom platform, and kill another Flying Koopa 
when you reach the spinning platforms.  Face Yoshi to the pair of stone blocks, 
eat the blue Koopa, and jump off the spinning platforms to fly forward.  Stay 
low as you fly past the mushroom platforms and the spinning gray platforms.  
Get the final Dragon Coin on the second single spinning gray platform, spit out 
the shell, and jump forward to break the End Marker and beat the level.  
Congrats!  You beat Star World 4!!

Secret Exit:

Jump on the line of stone blocks and walk off the left ledge.  When you land on 
the line of green '!' blocks below the stone blocks, run right past the green 
and red '!' blocks, and stop when you see the '?' block on the mushroom 
platform.  Hop off your Yoshi and swing your cape to hit the block and free a 
key.  Finally, hop back on your Yoshi, eat the key, and run into the keyhole to 
beat the level!!  Nice Job!!  You found the secret to Star World 4!

Normal Exit - GO TO: Star World 4
Secret Exit - GO TO: Star World 5




Star World 5 (SW5)
------------------
Difficulty: 6/10 | Brother: Luigi | Dragon Coins: 5 | Time: 300
Enemies: Flying Koopa, Koopa, Spiney


Welcome to the final level in Star World!  The only difficult thing about this 
level is that the Spineys can pose some trouble, and the Secret Exit is quite 
hard to reach.  I strongly recommend you to have a Cape to make jumping across 
the gray platforms easier.  This level contains the yellow baby Yoshi.

You will start on a mushroom platform with no immediate danger.  Wait for a few 
seconds and kill the green Flying Koopa that will slowly approach you.  Now 
quickly, but carefully jump across the many falling gray platforms, but make 
sure you do not hit any of the Flying Koopas and get the first and second 
Dragon Coin on your way.  To safely get the second Dragon Coin, jump on the 
gray platform above it, and jump off in at the last second.  After your jumping 
spree, you will land on a mushroom platform with a 'P' switch and a '?' block. 
The '?' block contains remote controlled coins, and should be controlled in the 
following fashion for best results: three coins up, and the rest of the coins 
should go right.  Wait until you run out of coins, and then hit the 'P' switch 
on the line of three yellow bricks.  From the bricks, jump to the line of brown 
bricks, and run forward.  You can safely ignore the Flying Koopas because they 
cannot hurt you.  When you see the line of four yellow bricks above the last 
two brown bricks, jump on the yellow bricks, and wait for the 'P' switch 
effects to wear off.  When the three red Flying Koopas are down, grab the 
second Dragon Coin, and jump across the sky using the three flying Koopas as 
platforms.  When you pass the last Flying Koopa, drop down on the first yellow 
pipe, and grab the yellow baby Yoshi.  With your baby Yoshi, jump across the 
three yellow pipes eating the Spinies and the two Jumping Piranhas.  After you 
eat the third Spiney, the yellow baby Yoshi will grow big, and a message will 
tell you that he can shake the ground with any kind of Koopa shell.  This 
message will only appear if you haven't already got the yellow Yoshi in Star 
World 3.  Now hop across the blue pipe, and jump past three falling gray 
platforms.  When you jump on the fourth one, quickly jump straight up to get 
the third Dragon Coin, and drop with the gray platform to get the fourth (Jump 
off the platform at the last second). *** Now on the mushroom platform, get the 
shell from the Koopa, use it to kill the three Spinies, and then walk below the 
three yellow pipes.  If you would like to, you can use the yellow Yoshi's 
ability to stomp on the enemies, or simply spit fireballs at them.  Jump to the 
second mushroom platform and use the Koopa on the pipe to kill another three 
Spinies.  Finally, jump past the blue pipe, and jump through the End Marker to 
beat the level.  Excellent Job!!  You beat Star World 5!!

Secret Exit:

To access this secret exit, you must have a blue Yoshi.  Now that you are on 
the mushroom platform, use your blue Yoshi to eat the red Koopa, and then fly 
up past the green pipe until you get stopped by a line of blue '!' blocks.  
Following the blocks, fly left and enter the gap that will appear shortly.  
Duck slide under any stone blocks, and jump to the line of stone blocks top the 
right.  Simply grab the key and put it in the keyhole to beat the level!!  
Congrats!! You found the secret to Star World 5 and going to Special World!

World 8: Special World
**********************


Gnarly (SWG)
------------
Difficulty: 3.5/10 | Brother: Luigi | Dragon Coins: 8 | Time: 300
Enemies: Amazing Flyin' Hammer Brother, Flying Koopa, Lakitu, Spiney, 

This is the first level in the Special World!  Your goal is to jump over the 
rope wall in the first area.  Although they are 8 Dragon Coins in this level, 
you can only get 5 at once.  Have two Capes with you to make jumping easier.

You will start this level on a line of short white walls.  Jump up the pair of 
green trampolines above you, and land on the rope line with four yellow bricks 
and a yellow string hanging from a blue motor.  Only hit the fourth yellow 
brick (not the others yet), and climb up the green vine that comes out.  When 
you see the line of brown bricks to the left, jump off the vine to the bricks, 
and get the first Dragon Coin above the second yellow brick.  Now spin jump to 
destroy both yellow bricks, and fall through a gap to the rope line.  Hit the 
rest of the yellow bricks, and climb up the second green vine.  After you climb 
all the way to the top, jump to the green trampoline to your right, and get the 
extra life from the stone block.  Get back on the green vine and climb back 
down until you see the red Flying Koopa and the ends of the other two vines.  
Kill the Flying Koopa and hit the first yellow brick (over the vine) to reveal 
a 'P' switch.  Grab the 'P' switch and bring it with you until you reach the 
top of the rope wall.  Jump past the other vine to get the second Dragon Coin. 
After you get the coin, land on the pair of note blocks to your right, and hop 
up the other two pairs by bouncing off the blocks.  From the third pair of note 
blocks, hit the yellow brick to get the Cape, and bounce from the pair of note 
blocks to the lower brown brick.  From here, jump past the upper brown brick 
and the stone blocks, and stop when you see the rope wall.  Now press the 'P' 
switch, and '?' blocks will randomly appear oat the right side of the level.  
As you fall, stay close to the right wall, ignore the various blocks to the 
left, and land on the single note block near the green pipe.  Walk through the 
green pipe to your right to enter the second area.  If you don't want go 
through the green pipe, simply skip the green pipe and fall down.


If you go through the pipe:

You will enter the area through the white pipe.  Get the three Dragon Coins to 
the left and run (right) across the stretch of land to get three hidden extra 
lives.  You will see three 'P' switches above you.  Jump to the upper cliff, 
grab the silver 'P' switch, and jump on both of the blue switches.


If you miss the pipe:

Hover down passing the other note blocks and getting the last three Dragon 
Coins.  Start spinning as you fall down to the bottom so the Koopa waiting 
there won't surprise you.  After you kill the Koopa, run through the pipe at 
the left to enter the second area out of a green pipe.  To the left, you will 
see three 'P' switches.  Jump to the left, grab the silver switch, and press 
both blue switches.


When the line of '?' blocks will appear over the gap to your right, run across 
the blocks, and kill the Amazing Flyin' Hammer Brother above you.  Still 
holding the silver 'P' switch, jump on the moving platform (of two white 
bricks), and hop to the tall cliff to your right.  Jump past the small gap and 
press the silver 'P' switch when the Flying Lakitu appears.  Grab as many 
silver coins as you can (You can get as many as 10 extra lives), and kill the 
Flying Lakitu when the 'P' switch loses it effect.  Run across the green bush 
to get the mushroom, hop across the block, and run through the End Marker to 
beat the level.  Nice Job!!  You beat the first Special Level!!

GO TO: Tubular




Tubular (SWT)
-------------
Difficulty: 8/10 | Brother: Luigi | Dragon Coins: 6 | Time: 300
Enemies: Chargin' Chuck (FB and Jumping), Flying Koopa, Volcano Lotus


Tubular is arguably the second hardest level in the entire game.  Although the 
level itself is fairly short, you will be floating over huge gaps while dodging 
annoying enemies.  If you make one mistake, you will defiantly fall in the gap 
and die, so do not get too frustrated over this level.  You cannot complete 
this level without two Capes, so get them before attempting this level.

When you start the level, you will appear on a tall platform with various pipes 
to your left.  Hop across the pipes making sure you dodge the Jumping Chargin 
Chucks and Jumping Piranhas.  Also be sure to get the first Dragon Coin above 
the first yellow pipe.  When you reach the second tall yellow pipe, jump on the 
blue 'P' switch, and quickly drop to the trampoline directly below you.  Use 
the trampoline to hit the '?' block and get 'P' balloon.  Now that you are 
floating in the air, move right ignoring the coins, and get the second Dragon 
Coin below another '?' block.  Stay up to dodge the baseballs from the BB 
Chargin' Chucks (standing on '?' blocks) and to get the third Dragon Coin.  To 
the right of the second BB Chargin' Chuck is a '?' block containing another 'P' 
balloon.  Hit the block, but get the balloon only when your floating powers 
stat to wear off.  Keep floating right and dodge the pair of Flying Koopas that 
move vertically.  Getting the fourth Dragon Coin is very tricky and requires 
precise timing and some luck.  When the pair of Volcano Lotus shoots its 
fireballs into the air, quickly float below the upper Lotus, grab the fourth 
Dragon Coin, and hit the '?' block above you to kill the Lotus.  After getting 
the Dragon Coin, keep floating right, but stay up to dodge the Flying Koopa 
below you.  Hover past the lone yellow pipe with the Jumping Piranha, and keep 
hovering right until you see the second (upper) FB Chargin' Chuck.  Stay above 
the Chargin' Chuck, and rapidly swing your cape as you hover down to kill him. 
Make sure you land on the block the Chargin' Chuck was standing on, or you will 
die.  Look left (using L) to get a good view of the first Chargin' Chuck.  
Right after he throws his football, jump above him, rapidly swing your cape as 
you fall to kill him, and land on the '?' block.  It is very important that you 
do not mess up when performing this move or you will fall and die.  Slowly walk 
off the right edge of the block, and rapidly swing your cape to hit the '?' 
block you walked off of, and get the 'P' balloon.  Move right, and get the 
fifth Dragon Coin below the Volcano Lotus before it spits fire.  Hit the '?' 
block above you to kill the Lotus, and continue hovering right to find another 
one.  If you want to risk your life, get the sixth Dragon Coin right above this 
Lotus after it spits fireballs, and quickly hover right to get out of its way. 
After a little more hovering, pass through the End Marker to beat the level!!  
Awesome Job!!  You beat the second hardest level in the game!!!

GO TO: Way Cool




Way Cool (SWW)
--------------
Difficulty: 6/10 | Brother: Luigi | Dragon Coins: 9 | Time: 300
Enemies: Chainsaw, Fuzzy


Compared to the other levels in Special World, Way Cool is not too difficult.  
Your main concern will be the many Fuzzies spinning in circles trying to hurt 
you.  In the first half of this level, you will sail across a brown platform, 
while you will be climbing across yellow ropes in the second half.

You will start on a large mushroom platform with a brown platform to your 
right.  Run forward, jump on the platform, and it will move across the black 
wire.  Immediately hit the 'ON' switch to change the path of the black wire to 
allow you to get the first Dragon Coin.  Duck underneath the spinning Fuzzy, 
spin jump over the moving chainsaw, and get the first Dragon Coin near the 
'OFF' switch.  Hit the 'OFF' switch to avoid falling down the pit.  As you 
ascend up the wire, spin jump over the pair of spinning Fuzzies (there is no 
room to duck), and get the Cape from the '?' block.  Ignore the next two 'ON' 
switches as you ascend, and dodge another pair of spinning Fuzzies when you 
straighten out.  Dodge another Chainsaw, get the second Dragon Coin, and ignore 
the 'ON' switch.  Spin jump to dodge the Fuzzies in your path as you move along 
the final stretch of wire, and get the third Dragon Coin when the platform 
falls down.  As you fall back down, move right to land on the mushroom platform 
below you. Run forward, jump across another mushroom platform, and land on the 
green pipe past the gap. *** Walk across the mushroom platform, ignore the '?' 
block, and jump across the pair of falling gray platforms.  Now you have to 
climb across many yellow ropes attached to the blue motors.  Jump to the first 
rope and climb to the top to avoid getting hit by the Fuzzy.  When you reach 
the end of the first wire, jump down, and grab hold of the yellow rope.  Jump 
over the spinning Fuzzy when it appears, and hop to the spinning orange 
platform to your right.  Dodge the Fuzzy near the platform, jump to the third 
yellow rope, and move up to dodge the first Fuzzy.  Move down to dodge the 
second Fuzzy and get the fourth Dragon Coin, and move back up to dodge the last 
Fuzzy.  When the yellow rope falls down, jump across the spinning orange 
platform (dodge the Fuzzy), and land on the mushroom platform.  Now you will 
see a pair of Fuzzies spinning near another yellow rope up high.  Spin jump 
over these Fuzzies, grab the yellow rope, and immediately climb up to dodge the 
third Fuzzy.  Many more Fuzzies will appear below the black wire, so dodge 
these by moving up or down.  When you see the two spinning Fuzzies vertically 
aligned, spin jump over them to avoid getting killed.  Jump over the next 
Fuzzy, spin jump over the last two, and hop off the yellow rope when it falls. 
When you land on the mushroom platform, run forward to break the End Marker and 
beat the level.  Excellent Job!!  You beat Special World's Way Cool!!

Alternative Exit:

NOTE: You will only get four Dragon Coins if you use this exit.  To get all 
five, come in this level with a Yoshi and get the first Dragon Coin before you 
jump through the pair of wings.

If you want to go through this exit, you will need a Yoshi of any color.  You 
can get a Yoshi in this level if you hit the switches in the correct order that 
will lead you to a yellow pipe.  To get to the pipe, ignore the first switch 
from the start, and dodge the two Fuzzies by ducking.  As you continue to 
ascend, ignore the second switch, and spin jump to dodge the spinning Fuzzy.  
When you pass the Fuzzy, hit the 'ON' switch, and the wires will shift 
positions.  Immediately hit the 'OFF' switch when you pass by it, and you will 
start to move straight up.  When the black wire ends, jump to the yellow pipe 
and enter it.  You will enter a small room with a single '?' block.  Run 
forward and hit the block to get a Yoshi.  Jump on the Yoshi and enter the 
second purple pipe to exit the small area.  You will reenter the main level 
through a green pipe near a large gap.  Walk forward, hit the '?' block to get 
a pair of wings, and jump through it with your Yoshi to enter the sky area.  
Run forward and fly straight up when you reach the end of the bridge to get the 
first Dragon Coin.  Fly low, and you will get the second Dragon Coin after 
about three seconds of flying.  Fly all the way up to get the third Dragon Coin 
and head back down low to get the fourth.  When you see the large arrow of 
coins, drop down to exit the level.  Great Job!!  You beat Way Cool!

GO TO: Awesome




Awesome (SWA)
-------------
Difficulty: 7.5/10 | Brother: Mario | Dragon Coins: 5 | Time: 300
Enemies: Banzai Bill, Guppy, Flying Koopa, Koopa, Rex


Despite what the name of the level implies, this level is in no way awesome.  
The whole level is covered in ice, so you have to be careful not to slip off 
the edge.  The 'P' switch is very important in this level, so do not step on it 
until I tell you too.  Have two capes and a Yoshi before entering this level.

Right when you start this level, a shelless Koopa will enter a yellow shell 
causing an invincible Koopa to emerge.  Spin jump to kill this Koopa when he 
tries to ram you.  Run forward (Be careful due to the ice), jump across the 
middle of the retracting yellow bricks, and land on the icy cliff to your 
right.  Jump into the ditch right next to you, and kill the Rex underneath the 
yellow pipe.  Be careful when you walk forward, as a shelless Koopa will kick a 
shell at you from the right ledge.  Spin jump to destroy the kicked red shell, 
jump out of the pit to the ledge, and kill the shelless Koopa.  Jump in the 
second ditch, kill the pair of Rex, and get the first Dragon Coin in the middle 
of the ditch.  Dodge another kicked shell (blue this time), and kill the 
shelless Koopa when you jump out of the pit.  Jump into the third ditch and get 
the Fire Flower from the '?' block in the middle.  This time, an invincible 
Koopa will drop down in the ditch and try to kill you.  Dodge (or kill) this 
pest, and jump out of the ditch to safety.  Now that you are out of the ditch, 
slide down the slope, and jump over the pool of water to get the second Dragon 
Coin.  Be alert as you land on the other side, as a shelless Koopa will kick a 
shell from the right.  Dodge the shell by spin jumping, and kill the shelless 
Koopa.  Now you will see a blue 'P' switch near a pool of water.  Grab the 
switch, and over the over the pool of water with the Guppy.  Now at the other 
side, immediately jump up to dodge a kicked red shell, run forward, and jump 
over shelless Koopa and three Rex (Killing them will cause too mush hassle).  
Walk down the slope, and jump to dodge yet another kicked shell.  Kill the 
shelless Koopa, and get the shell from the yellow Koopa with wings.  When the 
jumping green Koopa lands, immediately kick your yellow shell and run forward 
to watch the green Jumping Koopa, three Rex, and another yellow shell get 
killed.  Make sure you jump over the single shelless Koopa as it might not get 
killed by the shell you threw.  Now, press your 'P' switch to turn the coins 
into brown bricks, and run under the yellow pipe, and jump to the bridge to 
begin the second half of the level.  On the bridge, immediately jump on the 
line of brown bricks (dodge the Guppies), and get the star from the '?' block 
to make this part of the level a hell of a lot easier.  Now that you are 
invincible, the Guppies and Banzai Bills cannot hurt you.  Jump back down to 
the bridge, run forward to get a Fire Flower resting on the icy bridge, and get 
the third Dragon Coin at the end of the bridge.  Jump across the line of light 
blue bricks (icy bricks), and continue to run across the second bridge killing 
more Guppies and Rex.  At the end of the bridge, get the fourth Dragon Coin 
over the single light blue brick, and jump across the gap to the third bridge. 
Run across the bridge, and carefully jump past the two light blue pipes and the 
pair of light blue bricks.  Do not be too hasty, or you will fall down the pit 
and die.  When you reach the fourth bridge, run across it, and get the final 
Dragon Coin as you jump on the single light blue brick.  Now your invincibility 
power should fade away, and you will be back on land.  Run forward down the 
slope, and break the End Marker to (finally) beat the level.  Awesome!!  You 
beat Awesome!

GO TO: Groovy




Groovy (SWG)

Difficulty: 4/10 | Brother: Mario | Dragon Coins: 5 | Time: 300
Enemies: BB Chargin' Chuck, Jumping Piranha, Pokey, Koopa, Volcano Lotus 


Does this level look familiar?  It better, because this level is played by a 
computer at the level selection screen!!  Anyway, level one of the easiest in 
Special World.  Your only trouble will be the BB Chargin' Chucks near the end 
of the level.

You will start on the ground with a red Koopa walking towards you.  Jump on the 
Koopa, get the shell, run forward, and throw it when you see the '?' block on 
the ground.  Jump on the (hopefully blue) Yoshi, and get the first Dragon Coin 
near the brown brick.  Keep walking forward, and dodge the shelless Koopa that 
will slide down the slanted cliff.  Kill the green, red, and yellow Koopas when 
you pass the slanted cliff, but eat the blue Koopa to gain flying abilities.  
Now fly forward, but make sure you are close to the ground.  Fly over the Pokey 
and the Flying Piranha (that pops out of the bush), and fly under the Volcano 
Lotus resting on the stone block suspended in the sky.  Pass the gap and land 
when you see the shifting block.  Spit out your blue shell and make Yoshi lick 
the block when the star appears to get invincibility.  Now that you are 
invincible, run as fast as you can, killing the Jumping Piranha and the many 
Pokeys but make sure you get the second Dragon Coin under the Volcano Lotus.  
Kill the Volcano Lotus on the ground when you pass the sixth Pokey, and jump 
past the green pipe (over the gap) when you pass the eighth.  As you jump over 
the pipe, get the third Dragon Coin and dodge the fireballs from the Jumping 
Piranha.  When you see the three cliffs, jump under the four Pokeys to get an 
extra four lives.  Now you will be on the third cliff near a blue pipe with 
your invincibility gone.  If you followed my guide, you should have gotten 
around 8 to 9 extra lives!  On the cliff, wait until the Jumping Piranha 
retracts into the pipe, and jump past the pipe onto the slanted cliff over the 
large gap below you.  Before the BB Chargin' Chuck can throw too many baseballs 
at you, jump forward, and step on its head thrice to kill it and to get the 
fourth Dragon Coin.  Walk off the three stone blocks to land on the ground 
below you near a Pokey.  Kill the Pokey by eating its segments, get the final 
Dragon Coin, and eat the Volcano Piranha and the second Pokey near the four 
yellow pipes.  Now you will see a pair of BB Chargin' Chucks on four yellow 
pipes.  Simply use them as stepping stones to jump across the yellow pipes.  At 
the other side of the pipes, immediately break the End Marker to beat the level 
and to dodge the Chargin' Chucks from the yellow pipes.  Great Job!!  You beat 
Groovy!

GO TO: Mondo




Mondo (SWM)
-----------
Difficulty: 6.5/10 | Brother: Luigi | Dragon Coins: 5 | Time: 300
Enemies: Amazing Flyin' Hammer Brother, Guppy, Koopa, Nip Nip 


This level is just like your ordinary level except for one thing - the whole 
place is flooded in water!  This may sound fun, but the many Guppies and the 
trio of Amazing Flyin' Hammer Brothers will make this level quite annoying.  To 
save time, try to stay out of the water as much as possible.  Having two Capes 
is strongly recommended.

You will start in the flooded water with on immediate danger.  Swim forward, 
jumping out of the water to increase your speed, and dodge the pair of Guppies 
that will soon appear.  When the Amazing Flyin' Hammer Brother swoops over you 
and throws hammers, immediately jump out of the water, and hit the flying 
platform to knock him off.  As you fall back to the water, make sure you do not 
hit the Nips or Guppies.  Stay stationary in the water, jump on the flying 
platform, and hop to the dry cliff to your right.  Now the water level will 
increase, which is not a good thing.  Wait for about seven seconds, and the 
water level will fall back down.  When it does, jump off the cliff, and hop on 
the yellow pipe when the Jumping Piranha retracts down.  Quickly jump over the 
pit of Nip Nips, kill the flailing Guppy, and hit the '?' block over another 
pit of Nip Nips to get a Cape.  Kill the second flailing Guppy, and jump onto 
the blue pipe when the water level rises again.  Wait for another seven 
seconds, and the water level will be completely down.  Jump back down to the 
ground at you right, and run forward to kill three flailing Guppies.  Kill 
another Amazing Flyin' Hammer Brother by bonking the flying platform, and get 
the first Dragon Coin over the pit of Nip Nips.  Jump back on the flying 
platform, hop on the green pipe, and wait for the water level to fall down 
after it rises.  After your seven seconds of waiting, drop down to the ground 
to your right, and jump over the pit of Nip Nips to kill the Guppy.  Kill 
another Guppy by walking forward, jump on the cliff, and kill the Koopas by 
spin jumping or by swinging your cape.  Get the second Dragon Coin above the 
uppermost cliff, and hit the third '?' block (to the left of the cliff) to get 
a handy Yoshi.  Now go back forward and hop to the taller blue pipe when the 
water level rises.  Instead of waiting for seven seconds like you did the other 
times, jump into the water pool to your right, get the extra life from the 
yellow brick, and hop back to the blue pipe before the water level falls again. 
As it falls, jump down to the lower blue pipe to you left, and enter it to get 
to the mini area.  You will pop out of a purple pipe near a cloudy ground with 
many coins.  Run down the very long slope to get the coins, jump to get the few 
airborne coins at the middle of the slope, and get the third Dragon Coin near 
the white pipe.  After getting the coin, enter the white pipe to reenter the 
main level.  You will reenter the level out of a yellow pipe back into the 
flooded water.  As the water level rises swim past the two Guppies, swim up the 
brown brick (over the gap filled with Nip Nips), and hop to the upper cliff 
ignoring the pair of Koopas.  As the water level starts to fall, jump and glide 
over the many small pits of Nip Nips, and land near the lines of '?' blocks.  
Quickly run underneath the first line to kill two flailing Guppies, and to get 
the fourth Dragon Coin.  The water level will rise again, so hurry up as you 
jump across the brown bricks, get the last Dragon Coin, and kill the Amazing 
Flyin' Hammer Brother; but don't fall into the pit of Nip Nips below you.  Jump 
to the cliff to your right, and enter the green pipe to enter the final area of 
the level.  Here, just run forward and break the End Marker to beat the level. 
Excellent Job!!  You beat Mondo!

GO TO: Outrageous





Outrageous (SWO)
----------------
Difficulty: 8.5/10 | Brother: Luigi | Dragon Coins: 5 | Time: 300
Enemies: Amazing Flyin' Hammer Brother, Bouncing Fireball, Bullet Bill (and 
cannon), Goomba, Guppy, Jumping Piranha, Wiggler


This is arguably the hardest level in the entire game.  You will be dodging 
bouncing fireballs, hammers, Bullet Bills, and more.  To top it off, this level 
seems to go on forever.  You MUST have two Capes and a Yoshi if you want to 
survive through this level.

You will start on the ground with no immediate danger.  Run forward, kill the 
Wiggler, and hop over the small gap.  Now you will see two fireballs hop 
towards you.  Either lick the fireballs (if you have Yoshi), or spin jump off 
of them to avoid getting hit.  Pass by two fireballs, and get the first Dragon 
Coin over the Wiggler.  Jump over another Fireball, get the Fire Flower from 
the '?' block, and grab the green trampoline near the first Bullet Bill cannon. 
Jump over the first cannon, and run-jump to get over the second one.  As you 
jump over the cannons, time yourself so you don't get hit by the Bullet Bills 
that are launched.  Still with the green trampoline, immediately jump to the 
third cannon to avoid getting hit by the bouncing Fireball.  From the third 
cannon, bounce off the Wiggler, get the second Dragon Coin, and land on the 
shorter Bullet Bill cannon to your right.  Jump past the tall and the very 
short cannon (you should still have the green trampoline), hop over the yellow 
pipe (dodge the Jumping Piranha), and land on the cannon near the third Dragon 
Coin.  When the Bullet Bills stop flying, jump off the cannon, dodge the 
bouncing Fireball, and get the third Dragon Coin.  Now you will see another 
green trampoline (you should be holding another one).  Keep the first 
trampoline in your hands, and use the second one to bounce over the pair of 
cannons.  When you land, quickly bounce off the Wiggler under the few brown 
bricks, and land on the cannon to your right.  Before the cannons shoot out 
more Bullet Bills, quickly jump to the taller cannon near the second Wiggler, 
and jump over the gap to land near a tall reddish pipe.  Finally drop the 
trampoline you were carrying for the first half of the level, and bounce off of 
it to get on the red pipe.  Jump off the pipe, bounce off the pair of Wigglers, 
and hit the pair of flying bricks when you see the Amazing Flyin' Hammer 
Brother.  Jump on the bricks to get to the yellow pipe and walk off the pipe to 
see flailing Guppies and Goombas burst out of yellow bricks.  Run across this 
small stretch of land dodging these enemies and the bouncing Fireballs, but 
make sure you get the fourth Dragon Coin near the first Fireball.  Jump past 
the red pipe dodging the fireballs from the Jumping Piranhas, dodge the 
Wiggler, and get the Yoshi from the '?' block.  Jump past the second red pipe, 
hop past the green pipe to get to the tall platform to your right, and dodge 
the fireballs thrown from the Jumping Piranhas.  Jump off the cliff, run 
forward, and hit the flying bricks to kill another Amazing Flyin' Hammer 
Brother (dodge the hammers and the Bullet Bill).  Use the pair of flying bricks 
to get on the tall blue pipe near the cannon.  Jump off the blue pipe, land on 
the line of '?' blocks, and hit the middle one to get a Fire Flower (dodge or 
kill the bouncing Fireball).  Jump past the short blue pipe (with a Jumping 
Piranha), and bounce past the Wiggler to dodge the bouncing Fireball and to 
land on the red pipe.  Dodge the fire thrown by the Jumping Piranhas as you hop 
off the pipe, run forward, and hop over the cannon inside a small gap.  Bounce 
off the Wiggler to hit the pair of flying bricks (to kill the Amazing Flyin' 
Hammer Brother), and get the last Dragon Coin.  Dodge the Bullet Bills, and use 
the cannon to your left to get on the pair of flying bricks.  When the bricks 
fly to the right, jump over the gap to break the End Marker, and finally beat 
this annoying level.  Excellent Job!!  You beat the hardest level in the game!

Difficulty: 6/10 | Brother: Mario | Dragon Coins: 5 | Time: 200
Enemies: Chargin' Chuck (BB and Calling), Flying Koopa, Koopa, Sumo Brother, 
Super Koopa


Your main enemy in this level is time.  Yes, you only have 200 seconds to beat 
this level, and to make things worse, this level is fairly long with many 
enemies.  A Yoshi is mandatory because the green apples that dot this level 
give you 20 additional seconds in your timer.  Have a cape to make jumping and 
flying with your Yoshi easier.

When you start the level, immediately run forward, and jump over the gap to 
avoid getting burnt by the Sumo Brother on the stone bricks above you.  As you 
jump over the gap, stay low to avoid getting hit by the Jumping Piranha and to 
land on the ground near the green pipe.  Kill the Jumping Koopa and eat the 
green apple to increase your time by 20 seconds.  Run forward, dodge the fire 
from the Sumo Brother, and hop across the three gaps making sure you don't 
crash into the Koopas and you get the first Dragon Coin above the second gap.  
Back on the ground, kill the pair of Koopas (one with wings), and eat the green 
apple under the '?' block.  Use a shell to get the extra life from the '?' 
block near the sky.  Run forward, quickly hit the five "?" blocks to kill the 
Sumo Koopa, and jump across the same blocks to get over the cliff.  Kill one of 
the blue Koopas, eat the green apple, and hit the first yellow brick to reveal 
a 'P' switch.  Hit the switch, eat the second blue Koopa, and get the Fire 
Flower from the '?' block.  Now that your Yoshi an fly, run forward, and fly 
over the line of note blocks (above the line of '?' blocks).  Pass over the 
pair of Sumo Brothers, hit the last note block to get a star, and land when the 
line of note blocks end.  Walk to the left, kill the first Sumo Brother (by 
hitting the '?' block), and get the second Dragon Coin in the corner.  After 
getting the coin, run back right, jump over the small gap, and ram the two 
Chargin' Chucks.  You do not have to worry about the second Calling Chargin' 
Chuck summoning Super Koopas because you are invincible.  After you kill the 
Chargin' Chucks, get the third Dragon Coin, and jump across the lines of blue 
bricks.  Back on the ground, walk forward, and hit the note block to kill the 
Sumo Brother trying to burn you.  Ignore the '?' block, eat the green apple, 
and jump across the gap to get near a blue Koopa.  Eat the Koopa to gain flying 
abilities, fly forward, but stay near the ground.  Spit out the shell to kill 
the Chargin' Chuck, eat the green apple to your direct left, and run underneath 
the right blue pipe.  Jump across the three gaps killing the red Koopas, and 
hit the '?' blocks to kill the Sumo Brother when you are back on the ground.  
Kill the pair of Flying Goombas, eat the green apple, and jump across the three 
gaps.  As you jump across the last gap, get the fourth Dragon Coin, and kill 
the BB Chargin' Chuck.  Jump down to the ground, kill the Flying Koopa, and eat 
the green apple near the '?' block.  Hit the block to get the Fire Flower, jump 
across the gap to the cluster of blue bricks, and use one of the bricks to get 
the extra life from the flying '?' block.  Jump across the small gap, climb the 
cliffs dodging the baseballs from the three Chargin' Chucks, and get the final 
Dragon Coin at the end of the upper cliff.  Drop down from the cliff, eat the 
green apple, and run across the final stretch of this level.  As you run 
across, grab the coins above you that will form the words: "YOU ARE A SUPER 
PLAYER!!".  After you pass the pair of Exclamation Marks, run past the arrow, 
and break the End Marker to beat the level!!  Great Job!!  You beat all 96 
levels of the game!!!

Bonus Games
-----------

Bonus Game 1:

You will occasionally find this bonus game when you enter pipes in various 
levels.  This game is very easy and contains no enemies.

You will appear from a green pipe to the bottom of the ground with many bridges 
above you.  You will also notice that there are three '?' blocks in every 
platform.  Hit these three blocks in any random order.  If you get three 
circles, an extra life will emerge from the third block you hit.  On the other 
hand, if you hit the wrong '?' block, all of the blocks at that line will turn 
into brown bricks.  Jump to the next platform and repeat four more times.  When 
you reach the uppermost cliff, exit the bonus game through the pipe on the 
right wall.


Bonus Game 2:

You play this Bonus Game every time you get 100 star points.

You will appear in the middle of the room with eight spinning shifting blocks 
above you.  Your goal is to hit the blocks and try to get the same power up 
picture in every block.  Try to get the same power up that shows in the middle 
block.  When you hit the blocks, extra lives will pop out of the blue pipe 
jutting out of the ceiling.  Gather the extra lives and you will automatically 
exit the bonus game.




Boss: Renzor (VDRZR)
--------------------
This is the boss that appears in all of the Fortresses.  During the Boss 
battle, there are four Renzors circulating on four platforms.  To beat Renzor, 
hit the bottom of the four platforms to knock off the pests.  Be careful, as 
the Renzors will frequently spit fireballs at you!  After you knock off two 
Renzors, the bridge will start to collapse.  At this point, you need to jump on 
one of the platforms and kill the last two Renzors.
