    Haven't updated in a LONG time, but I noticed I had a slightly newer version

    doesn't appear after specific slevels, but after 80,000 points. I also started
    figuring out different combinations of cards you can get.
    
    Version .25 08/20/03
    Got walkthrough up to world three fortress. Added a part of the map for world
    3, a few tips, enemies, items, and a boss. I also elaborated on the walkthrough
    for the first castle.

    -------------------------------------5 Tips------------------------------------
    -------------------------------------======------------------------------------
    
    ------------
    General Tips
    ------------
    
    To get a star at the end of every level, make sure you are Raccoon Mario. Now
    fill up your "P" and run into the end zone. Jump and hit the item box and you
    will get a star.
    
    When you come across a gap the is to big to jump, try bouncing off nearby
    enemies.
    
    Try to wait until right after you beat a fortress to go to game and mushroom
    houses. This way if you don't get what you want, you can rstart without having
    to redo any levels.
    
    ----------------
    End Zone Bonuses
    ----------------
    
    When you get a mixture of three items in the end zone, you get a 1-up.
    When you get 3 flowers in a row in the end zone, you get a 2-up.
    When you get 3 mushrooms in a row in the end zone, you get a 2-up.
    When you get 3 stars in a row in the end zone, you get a 5-up.
    
    ------------------------
    Moving Block Game Houses
    ------------------------
    
    These game houses appear everytime you get 80,000 points.
    They will appear at the level you played last.
    
    Here you must match the cards. If you get it wrong twice, you lose. You get
    whatever you match. For example: If you match two mushrooms, you get a
    mushroom.
    
    Key:
    F - Flower
    S - Star
    U - 1-up
    1 - 10 coins
    2 - 20 coins
    M - Mushroom
    
    The cards are arranged in one of these orders:

    This guy immediately starts shooting beams at you with his wand. Avoid the
    beams and jump on his head to hurt him. When he gets hit his shell will jump
    into the air. I suggest standing right next to where the shell lands and then
    jumping on his head before he can shoot at you again. Hit him three times to
    kill him.
    
    Peach will give you a P wing.

    If you are little Mario, then I think it is impossible to get the pow. If you
    are big Mario then make sure you get the powerup in the lower right block.
    
    Grab as little coins as possible, as they will serve as a platform later. Here,
    the middle block has a pow in it, So hit the block from below, and make your
    way right. Hit the bottom right block for a powerup. Jump on the pipe. Now jump
    left and swing your tail. You should hit the block so you can stand. Hit the
    block above you, and go to the top layer. Break the block directly to the left
    and drop down. Hit the left block again and drop onto the pow. The coins will
    become boxes, and the boxes coins. Use the bottom boxes as a platform to grab
    the coins. When time runs out the platform will turn back to coins, so grab
    them and leave via the right pipe. Jump up to the second row of crates and get
    the four ? blocks. The 3 left blocks contain a coin, and the right has a
    powerup. Drop down and run right. grab an Item to finish the level, but beware
    of the bow-wow directly below the item.

    ------------------------
    
    Jump up the side of the pyramid and go through the door. Jump over the beetle
    and go up the hill. The ? box between the blocks with the beetle contains a
    powerup. Only try and get it if you think you can avoid being hit by the
    beetle. Head down the ramp. and jump up to the ledge.
    
    Whenever you come to one of these walls you will need either Raccoon Mario, or
    a beetle. Raccoon Mario can just break the blocks with his tail. If you are not
    Raccoon Mario, then hit a beetle, so its shell it can't move. The run into it
    while holding "B" to pick it up. Now bring it to the point where you want to
    break a wall and kick the shell into it.
    
    So break through the wall in front of you and jump onto the pipe the piranha
    plant is coming out of. Once you are on the pipe, jump to the ledge on your
    left. Now go left and jump to the ledge on your right. Go right, but not down
    the hill.

    Break the block directly above the pow, and the block to the right of it. Hit
    the pow. The coins will become boxes, and the boxes coins. Now grab as many
    coin, and break as little boxes as possible. In a few second the coins/boxes
    will switch back, so grab any the rest of the coins and leave the way you came.
    You will find yourself at the bottom of the hill you were at earlier. Go up the
    hill to your right. Watch out for the two beetles on the ceiling, and the one
    on the ground. Break through the wall, and go over the piranha plant. Go up the
    pipe. Immediately kill the boomerang bro, so he can't throw any boomerangs at
    you. Now go left and go to the top of the pyramid. Hit the pow and grab the
    white coins. Now you can finish the level.

    World 2, Castle
    ---------------
    
    This is similar to the last castle. You will be on an airship, following the
    screen through the level.
    
    Jump onto the first cannon you see, and then quickly to the next and finally
    the platform. Run off the platform and to the floor. Jump over the Cannon. Now,
    wait for the cannon to your right to shoot, then jump over the shot and onto
    the cannon. From the cannon jump to the platform on your right. Here, you
    should grab the powerup if you need it. Run right and through the holes,
    between crates. When you reach the bottom, go right, and up the crates,
    avoiding the cannons. Jump to the platform and run right. If you are fire
    Mario, continuously shoot fireballs and the wrench men that popup. If not jump
    over them and avoid their wrenches. Jump to the Cannon and the next. Now go
    the platform and down the pipe to the boss.
    
    --------------------
    World 1, Castle Boss
    --------------------
    
    This boss is extremely similar to the first castle's boss. He will shoot a
    beam at you with his wand right away. Avoid the beams and jump on his head to
    hurt him. While he is in the air, don't touch him, as it will hurt you. When he
    gets hit his shell will jump into the air. I suggest standing right next to
    where the shell lands and then jumping on his head before he can shoot at you
    again. Hit him three times to kill him.
    
    Peach will give you a Cloud.

    you see a pipe. Drop down, avoiding the jelly fish, and go up it. Run right and
    grab an item to finish off the level.
    
    ----------------
    World 3, Stage 2
    ----------------
    
    Jump right onto the zigzagging platform. And from there to the next. Grab the
    powerup from the ? box if you need it. Jump onto the next platform and
    immediately jump right, into the wooden block. A star will pop out, so land
    back on the platform and grab the star when you pass by. Now stay on this
    platform, grabbing as many coins as you can. It helps if you got the star. If
    you didn't then you will have to avoid, or jump on the heads of the fish that
    jump at you. The three ? boxes on the way all contain a coin. Jump onto the
    next platform and avoid or kill the jumping fish like before.
    
    1. Now there are two ways to go. See either 1a, or 1b.
    
    1a. If you want extra coins
    Make sure to watch out for all of the fireballs coming your way during this.
    When you come to the platform, do not jump on it. Hit the third block, to
    reveal a pow. Jump up and hit it. The coins and blocks will switch places, so
    grab the coins. Now go into the pipe that the spitting piranha plant is on, and
    go down it. Avoid or kill the final flying fish and finish the level.
    
    1b. If you don't feel like risking you life for coins
    When you arrive at the platform of blocks, jump on it. Avoid the fireballs from
    the spitting piranha plant. When the plant goes down jump on its pipe and go
    down it. Avoid or kill the final flying fish and finish the level.
    
    If at any time during the level you fell in the water, and you are still in the
    water when you get t the pipe, there is a way out. Go behind the pipe and you
    should see a ? box, which a powerup. Jump on it and then hit the box above you
    for a coin. Jump onto the spitting piranha plant's pipe when it goes away, and
    go down it. Avoid or kill the final flying fish and finish the level.
    
    -------------------------
    World 3, Mushroom House 1
    -------------------------
    
    Here you will always get a Frog suit. It doesn't matter which you chest you
    choose.
    
    ----------------
    World 3, Stage 3
    ----------------
    
    Immediately run right, over the gap and onto the platform. Watch out for the
    big fish, which will follow you the rest of the level no matter how many times
    you kill it. Jump over the two pillars, grabbing the coins. Now jump to the gap
    to the next platform. Here there are a bunch of blocks and a koopa. Hit the
    music block for a flower and kill the koopa. The second farthest right block on
    the top row contains a pow. Hit it and grab the coins and the flower if you
    want it. Continue right, to the next platform. From there jump right again.
    Jump to the pillar. Now you'll see a spinning platform. You must jump right
    before it stop spinning and then jump off it right away, so you don't get
    thrown into the water. Grab the powerup, then jump right and kill the koopa.
    Jump across the blocks, grabbing the coins below if you want. Avoid the small
    flying fish that pop out. When you see a higher set of blocks you should jump
    up to them. Now jump onto the spinning platform as before and jump off to the
    right. Go down the pipe. When you come out the other side, jump right and claim
    your prize.
    
    -------------------
    World 3, Fortress 1
    -------------------
    
    Go right, under the spinning ball. Hit the skeleton, and jump onto the pillar.
    Avoid the next ball and go up the stairs. Get past the stomp block and hit the
    skeleton. Now you'll be in an area full of skelletons, ghosts, and 9 doors.
    
    Here is where each chart leads. Read the explanations below and decide what
    doors you want to go through. You will ultimately have to go through Door 6,
    which is where the boss resides.

    Door 4 - Water Room

    You end up in this room when you go through doors 1, 2, 3, 4, 7, or 8.
    This room is a long hallway with water on the bottom. It contains a bunch of
    fish, which roam the bottom. The two silver pipes lead to the pipe before the
    door room. There are also two ? boxes, which both contain powerups.
    
    Platform

    back and forth, waving his hands. He can jump, and sometimes goes into his
    spiky shell when your about to hit him. He now has wings. When he flies around
    wait until he lunges at you and then hit him in the head. Three to the head
    will do it. You can also hit him with five fireballs from fire Mario.

    kill them both without getting hit. Your prize is a hammmer, which can be used
    to gain access to Game House 4.

    ----------------------------------9 Boss Guide---------------------------------
    ----------------------------------============---------------------------------
    
    The bosses are listed in order of appearance.
    
    ------------------------
    World 1, Fortress 1 Boss
    ------------------------
    
    He will run back and forth waving his hands. Jump on his head to hurt him. Do
    this three times and he will die. Watch out, because he changes speeds
    suddenly. You can also hit him with five fireballs from fire Mario.
    
    --------------------
    World 1, Castle Boss
    --------------------
    
    This guy immediately starts shooting beams at you with his wand. Avoid the
    beams and jump on his head to hurt him. While he is in the air, don't touch
    him, as it will hurt you. When he gets hit his shell will jump into the air. I
    suggest standing right next to where the shell lands and then jumping on his
    head before he can shoot at you again. Hit him three times to kill him.
    
    ------------------------
    World 2, Fortress 1 Boss
    ------------------------
    
    This guy is similar to the boss in the first fortress. He runs back and forth,
    waving his hands. You still have to jump on his head to kill him. The
    difference is, now he can jump, he sometimes goes into his spiky shell when
    your about to hit him, and he moves faster. You can also hit him with five
    fireballs from fire Mario.
    
    --------------------
    World 1, Castle Boss
    --------------------
    
    This boss is extremely similar to the first castle's boss. He will shoot a
    beam at you with his wand right away. Avoid the beams and jump on his head to
    hurt him. While he is in the air, don't touch him, as it will hurt you. When he
    gets hit his shell will jump into the air. I suggest standing right next to
    where the shell lands and then jumping on his head before he can shoot at you
    again. Hit him three times to kill him.
    
    ------------------------
    World 3, Fortress 1 Boss
    ------------------------
    
    This is almost identical to the bosses in the first two fortresses. He runs
    back and forth, waving his hands. He can jump, and sometimes goes into his
    spiky shell when your about to hit him. He now has wings. When he flies around
    wait until he lunges at you and then hit him in the head. Three to the head
    will do it. You can also hit him with five fireballs from fire Mario.

    -------------------------10 Frequently Asked Questions-------------------------
    -------------------------=============================-------------------------
    
    Question:
    On the gameboy advance Super Mario three, I went into a level and found a
    strange block that made a coin counter appear. When I got enough coins the
    meter showed a purplish-blue mushroom house. After I beat the level a
    purplish-blue mushroom house appeared next to the level. Inside there was a
    single treasure chest. Inside of it I found an anchor. What does the anchor do?
    I tried using it but it won't let me. Could you help me figure it out?
    Answer:
    The achor is used to keep airships from flying away after you die in one.
