Welcome to my first walkthrough!  I hope you find it satisfactory.  It's here
to help you find the Bonus Rooms and get the money in them.  The bonus rooms
are the rooms that you can only enter through a purple Pipe, and each level has
two purple Bonus Pipes.  Each one has a diamond in it (although in Super Hard
Mode, some of the Bonus Rooms do not have diamonds), and you have to solve a
puzzle to get to it.  Keep in mind that if you mess up in a Bonus Room, you can
leave it and go back in, and everything will be reset, except for the "!"
switches (which can be reset simply by whacking them).  This walkthrough covers
(or will when it's finished, at least) all of the Bonus Rooms in all difficulty
modes, so that should hopefully be really helpful.  Another thing to remember
is that I am only walking you through the locations and the solutions of the
Bonus Rooms, and I skip a TON of secrets, so look around a bit if you want to
get the Treasure Chests and get more money.  Now keep reading!

  W W   LLL========================================4


Jump:  Press the A button to jump.  This is the simplest of all moves.

Crouch:  OK, so I was wrong!  This is the simplest move:  press down to crouch,
     or duck.

Crawl:  Press left or right on the D-Pad while crouching.

Body Slam:  Press the B button to do a Body Slam.  This move will break blocks
     and kill enemies.  Please note that if you body slam the spiky side of an
     enemy, the enemy will be unharmed, but you will not!

Grab, Throw:  You pick up enemies simply by walking into them, but only when
     they are flipped upside down.  You can flip an enemy over by jumping on it
     unless it has spikes on its top.  You can also pick up an enemy if you are
     underneath it (for example, if it is falling), but it still has to be
     upside down!  You can also pick up rocks by simply walking into them.  You
     throw an item or enemy by pressing or holding and then releasing the B
     button.  The longer you hold the B button, the farther you will throw the
     item or enemy.  If you just tap B, you'll just throw the item or enemy
     right in front of you.  You can also throw an item or enemy upwards by
     holding up on the D-Pad.

Swimming:  When you are underwater, press the A button to swim upwards and
     press the B button to swim forward.  Pressing B plus a direction on the
     D-Pad will cause Wario to swim in that direction.  You can also use the
     D-Pad by itself to swim slowly.  To kill enemies when underwater, hit them
     from beneath.  You can kill spiked fish by hitting them on their
     underbellies, which are exposed to the side when they are swimming up and
     down.  Please note that you cannot kill the large water monsters that come
     out of the holes in Mystic lake.  One final note on swimming--you cannot
     pick up enemies or items when underwater.

Roll:  Stand on a forty-five degree slope and press down to roll.  You are
     invincible while rolling and will blast through blocks and enemies
     (although I am not so sure about spikes...!).

Jumping Body Slam:  Press the A button while doing a Body Slam.

Dash Attack:  Hold the R button (or the L button, whichever you prefer) while
     walking.  This move will break blue blocks and make you run faster.  The
     attack ends when you release the R button.

Smash Attack:  Press down on the D-Pad while in mid-air.  This move will break
     blocks and smash enemies (as long as they have no spikes on their top...)
     and ends when you release the D-Pad.

Super Smash Attack:  Hold down on the D-Pad for about a second.  This move will
     break blue blocks and does NOT end when you release the D-Pad.

Stomp Jump:  Hold A when jumping on an enemy to jump up high!

Flying Carpet:  Jump while on a flying carpet and the carpet will float higher, 
     and it floats down when you are stationary.

Crouching Jump:  Press the A button while crouching.  This enables you to fit
     into small spaces that cannot be reached simply by crawling.

Crouching Slide:  Press down on the D-Pad while doing a Body Slam.  This move
     is nice for getting through tight squeezes quickly on the ground.

Ladder Slide:  This one isn't in the manual.  Press down and B while on a
     ladder to slide down it quickly.  A similar slide happens if you are on
     a ladder and something shakes the ground.

Whoo, that's a lot of moves!

Okay, this is how it's going to work:  For each level, I will tell you what
room and/or screen each bonus pipe is in and how to get to it.  I will then
tell you how to solve the puzzle in each room.  'K?


%#%#%#%#%#%#%#%#%#%#%#%
# The Emerald Passage #--------------------------------------------------------
%#%#%#%#%#%#%#%#%#%#%#%  Palm Tree Paradise

ROOM 1:
Go to the fifth screen and enter the cavern door.  Climb up the ladders and
kill the enemies, if you want (by Smashing the ground to flip them, and then
Smashing their soft underbellies).  The purple Pipe is in the ceiling; enter
it.

This little guy with the magnifying glass is the Professor.  Credit for this
name goes to EOrrizonte.  He is indestructible, but useful for throwing around.
Pick him up and throw him at the "!" block, then use the stairs that appear to
get the diamond.  Then get out and continue the level.

ROOM 2:
You'll see it above you when you enter the seventh screen, but you can't reach
it yet.  Eat an apple from the monkey and break open the ground that looks a
little different from the rest by jumping on it.  It's on the little rise.  Hit
the "!" block in this room and then use the pipe to get out.  Proceed left to
where the Bonus Pipe was and use the blocks that have appeared to enter the
Pipe.

Once in the Bonus Room, climb up the red ladder and jump up the platforms to
where the Professor is.  Grab him and throw him to the right, through the small
blocks.  Quickly fall back down, stand next to the edge of the platform
above the pipe, and catch the Professor as he falls.  This may take a few tries
for a beginner.  Then throw the Professor to the left, through the blocks,
climb up the ladder, and do a crouching jump from the edge of the platform to
enter the room where the diamond is.  Grab the diamond and exit.  Now, finish
the level!


%#%#%#%#%#%#%#%#%#%#%#%
# The Emerald Passage #--------------------------------------------------------
%#%#%#%#%#%#%#%#%#%#%#%  Wildflower Fields

ROOM 1:
In the third screen, climb up the platforms and go to the right.  Do a Super
Smash Attack to break the blue block below, then Smash the normal blocks and
enter the screen below.  Go right, Super Smash the blue block that's all the
way at the bottom, and enter the hidden Bonus Pipe.

Grab the Professor, jump up, and throw him upwards while in mid-air to get him
over the wall.  Slide down the ladder and repeat this procedure to get him over
this wall.  Then slide down this ladder, grab the Professor again, and throw
him near the left wall.  Use the Stomp Jump move to get up on the platform
above you, grab the diamond, and exit the Bonus Room.  Continue the level.

ROOM 2:
In the screen with the Frog Switch, let a monkey feed you and jump on the blue
block to break it.  Go left and enter the Bonus Pipe.

Grab the Professor and throw him at the "!" switch.  Climb up the ladder, grab
the Professor again, stand on the "!" switch, and throw the Professor at the
red "!" switch.  Climb up the ladder.  Now this part is tricky, because if you
don't do it just right, the Professor will fall down the space that the ladder
occupies and you'll have turn off the red "!" switch and throw the Professor at
it again to get him in the right position.  Keep bumping into him from the
right until he hits the wall and flips over, then pick him up and jump through
the space between the red "!" switch and the corner of the ceiling (the floor
of the room that the diamond is in), landing on the switch.  Throw the
Professor to the left, do a crouching jump into the room, grab the diamond, and
get out.  Finish the level.


%#%#%#%#%#%#%#%#%#%#%#%
# The Emerald Passage #--------------------------------------------------------
%#%#%#%#%#%#%#%#%#%#%#%  Mystic Lake

ROOM 1:
In the third screen (the second screen that has water), you will see some
breakable blocks below you, but, unfortunately, you cannot do a Smash Attack
when you are underwater.  So, you must do a Super Smash Attack from above and
Wario will continue the Super Smash move when he enters the water.  (If you
don't understand what I mean, just keep following the instructions and you'll
figure it out.)  But how do you get above the water?  If you continue right,
you will see that part of the ceiling is lower, and there will be a heart a
little to the right.  Go to the center of this low part and press the A button
to smash open a secret block with your head.  Press A again to break the block
above the first, go up, and jump out of the right side of the water.  Grab the
item there and go across to the other side of the water.  Now, jump off the
ledge, and do a Super Smash Attack by holding down on the D-Pad, making sure
that you stay on the right side of the shaft.  Wario will go down through the
water and break open all of those breakable blocks in the floor.  Go left to
grab the two hearts, then go right, out of the water, and into the Bonus Pipe.

Grab the Professor and throw him across the water to the left side of the room.
Swim across the water, pick up the Professor, and stand on the line between the
third and fourth floor squares from the right edge.  If you don't stand right
there, the Professor will miss the block in the floor, and when he's underwater
you can't pick him up.  Now, press B.  That's right, PRESS it, don't hold it.
If you hold B instead of just tapping it, the Professor will either fly across
to the other side of the room or land in the water in the wrong place.  Once
you've broken the block, swim down into the room below and grab the diamond.
Now you can leave.

ROOM 2:
This Bonus pipe is in plain sight to the left of the Frog Switch.  You can't
miss it!

This is a bit of a tricky one.  Once inside the Bonus Room, use the platforms
to the left and above the Pipe to get near the top of the water tank.  Pick up
the Professor and stand, facing left, so that the Professor (while still in
your hand) is just to the right of the wall.  Throw him upwards so that he goes
over the wall and into the water.  If done properly, so that the Professor
doesn't bounce off any part of the tank, he will fall to the bottom and trigger
the "!" switches.  Immediately after you throw the Professor over the wall,
fall back down to the bottom, walk left under the tank and jump onto the ladder
before he hits the "!" switches.  You must do this VERY QUICKLY, or else the
platform you use to get onto the ladder will disappear, seeing as it is made of
"!" blocks.  Grab the diamond, leave the Bonus Room, and finish the level.


%#%#%#%#%#%#%#%#%#%#%#%
# The Emerald Passage #--------------------------------------------------------
%#%#%#%#%#%#%#%#%#%#%#%  Monsoon Jungle

ROOM 1:
Jeez, this one's REALLY easy to find!  It's to the left of your starting
position.

Once inside the Bonus Room, use the R button to do a Dash Attack to the right.
When you see the "!" switch in the ceiling, jump and hit it WITHOUT STOPPING
THE DASH ATTACK.  A rock that was sitting on "!" blocks will fall and your Dash
Attack will knock it to the right so that it doesn't fall into the water.  Now,
pick up the rock, throw it through the little blocks on the right, and grab the
gem.  Be sure to hit the "!" switch on your way out, or else the exit Pipe will
be blocked with "!" blocks.

ROOM 2:
After you pass a bunch of swinging  platforms with crocodiles underneath, you
will enter a large room with a very high ceiling.  You will see a blue block
in the floor and a weird-looking Native approaching you.  Use the large leaf
platforms to get to the upper-right corner of the room.  The Bonus Pipe is
there, in the ceiling.  Go in it.

Go left and stand on the edge of the floor, next to the water.  Let the Native
shoot an arrow, then walk to the right before it hits you so that it follows
you aaaall the way to the right side of the room, and THEN let it hit you.
Wario will swell up like a balloon and float up, getting you the diamond.  Now,
leave, and finish the last level of the Emerald Passage!  Woohoo!
