==========================================================
1 - Classic 1985 Mode
==========================================================

1.1 - About
----------------------------------------------------------
Classic 1985 Mode is nearly identical to the classic Super Mario 
Brothers of  yore for the Nintendo Entertainment System.  There are a 
few changes however. Notably:

      * No 2 Player Mode

      * Looking Around is More Crucial Because the Screen is Not as
        Wide/Long

      * A "Level Map"

      * Ability to Switch Between Mario and Luigi Between Levels by
        Pressing "Select"

1.2 - Basic Hints and Advice
----------------------------------------------------------
      * Look around often by standing still and pressing the Digital 
      Pad either up or down.

      * Remember - Unlike Super Mario Brothers 3, when you get hit and
        you're Fire Mario, You revert back to Small Mario - *NOT* Super 
        Mario!!!

      * Racing through boards is not necessary (with the exception of 
        8-1). Do not be afraid to take your time and move slowly and 
        carefully through boards.

===========================================================
2 - Challenge Mode
===========================================================

2.1 - About
-----------------------------------------------------------
Challenge Mode is a varient of Classic 1985 Mode.  The game is pretty 
much the same with the exception that there are five red coins and a 
Yoshi egg hidden in every level.  In order to play a board in Challenge 
Mode, you must have beaten it in Classic 1985 Mode.  The object is to 
get all five red coins, beat a target score, and get a Yoshi egg in 
every level.  

There is a bar at the bottom of the screen that fills up with your 
score. I have yet to completely fill the bar yet, however.  You 
apparantly need to do more then beat the target scores of each level, 
for I have done so and nothing has happened.

2.2 - Basic Hints and Advice
------------------------------------------------------------
        * Racing through levels is important here.  Time can have an 
          important effect on your score.  Remember - every second left
          on the ticker is an extra 50 points added to your score!

        * Don't do all the objectives in one shot.  Do the red coins         
          first, then search for the Yoshi egg, then try to beat the         
          target score.

        * Red coins ARE hidden in "secret areas" down warp pipes.

        * Red coins are *NOT* hidden up in bonus areas in the clouds.

        * By clearing out a bonus area in the clouds (getting EVERY         
          coin), you get a bonus of 10,000 points.

        * Getting the majority of the coins in a multi coin brick may         
          yield a red coin.

        * Most of the time, you're going to have to uncover a hidden         
          coin block as a stepping stool to find the Yoshi egg.  This
          happens a few times with red coins, but it is not common.

        * The Yoshi egg is a vital part of beating the target score.           
          Unless it is totally out of your way, be sure to pick it up as
          it yields and additional 2,000 points.

        * Fireworks help your score a great deal.  To get fireworks,         
          your time when you beat the level must end in a 1, 3, or 6.
          You'll then get that many fireworks.  Each firework is worth
          an additional 500 points.

=================================================================
3 - Super Mario Brothers: For Super Players (aka the Lost Levels)
=================================================================

3.1 - About
-----------------------------------------------------------------
This mode is identical to the Lost Levels game which was released in 
Japan as Super Mario Brothers 2 and here in the United States as a part
of Super Mario All Stars.  There is a difference between this mode and
the Lost Levels in Super Mario All Stars.  In this mode, there are no
worlds A, B, C, or D.  Those levels were essentially an extra sixteen
boards (I guess they were only in Super Mario All Stars).  
Additionally, Mario does not have better stopping ability then Luigi, 
and Luigi does not jump higher (I'm assuming this was only in the Super
Mario All Stars version as well).

3.2 - Accessing This Mode
-----------------------------------------------------------------
To access the Super Mario Brothers: For Super Players mode, beat the
Classic 1985 Mode (the first or second quest) with 300,000 points or
more as your score.  Then select the Luigi Head on the game select 
screen.

3.3 - Basic Hints and Advice
-----------------------------------------------------------------
      * This mode is A LOT more advanced than Classic 1985 mode.  Be 
        prepared for a lot of seemingly impossible jumps.

      * Some boards appear to loop indefinitely.  These boards require
        you to go down a warp zone or find a vine before you can 
        advance.

      * Save often - you'll want to.

      * Learn to time your jumping off flying koopas.  This is a vital
        skill in this mode.

==================================================================
4 - You vs. Boo Mode
==================================================================

4.1 - About
------------------------------------------------------------------
This mode is made up of the same eight boards as the two player mode.
The difference is that this mode is for one player.  Boo starts out 
really slow, and chances are you will beat him the first time through.
When you beat him, he gets faster.  Boo changes colors.  He goes through
the  following stages as shown below:

White Boo ---> Green/Blue Boo ---> Red/Pink Boo ---> Black Boo

There appears to be no reward of getting all black boos in every level, 
however.

4.2 - Accessing This Mode
-------------------------------------------------------------------
To access this mode, beat Classic 1985 Mode (the first or second quest) 
with 100,000 points or more.  Then select the Boo Picture on the game select 
screen.

4.3 - Basic Hints and Advice
-------------------------------------------------------------------
      * Learn to pin down the 'B' Button.  It helps immensely.

      * Look for the shortest way through a level the first time
        through.  After plotting out your course, run through it really
        fast.

      * Instead of hitting a switch and going through the blocks, try
        jumping over them.

      * If you mess up, hit 'Start' and choose Retry.  You're probably
        going to need a near perfect race to get the Black Boo.

      * You can decide which Mario (or Luigi) you'd like to start out
        with on the Level Select screen.  Just press 'Select' and
        Mario/Luigi will change forms from Small Mario/Luigi, Super
        Mario/Luigi, or Fire Mario/Luigi.

===================================================================

5.1 - About
-------------------------------------------------------------------
Pretty self explanatory here.  You can find your high score for 1985
Classic Mode here and your current Challenge status.  You can toggle
between the two displays by pressing either right or left on the 
digital pad.

7 - Toy Box
===================================================================

7.1 - Calendar
-------------------------------------------------------------------
This is pretty self explanatory.  You can have the game remind you 
dates and such.  The calendar goes up to year 2999.  Quite impressive.

7.2 - Fortune Telling
-------------------------------------------------------------------
This is a pretty basic feature.  You pick one of five cards and you get 
a  fortune and a quote.  The cards are:

      * Extremely Lucky - Peach Head - Makes You Start the Game With 10 
        Lives Instead of 5
      * Very Lucky - Mario Head
      * Lucky - Luigi Head
      * Unlucky - Turtle Shell
      * Extremely Unlucky - Bowser Head

7.3 - Print Shop (aka the Question Mark in the Lower Left)
-------------------------------------------------------------------
This is a nice feature... if you have the Game Boy Printer.  Otherwise 
it's really only good for show.  Each x-4 level you beat in Classic 1985 
mode (where 'x' is any number 1-8), you'll get a new feature.  The 
features are as follows:

      * Level 1-4 - Makes Banners You Can Print
      * Level 2-4 - You Can Print Some Animation Frames From the Game
      * Level 3-4 - You Can Print Out Pictures With Custom Messages In 
        Them
      * Level 4-4 - Has Yet More Banners For You To Print
      * Level 5-4 - Has Pictures For You To Print (No Custom Text)
      * Level 6-4 - Has Banners With a Feature Where You Can Make Your 
        Own Music to Play Along With It
      * Level 7-4 - More Frames of Animation For You To Print
      * Level 8-4 - You Can Change the Startup Screen (before the Title
        Screen) and Change the Music That Plays As Well

7.4 - Yoshi Egg
---------------------------------------------------------------------
To activate this just find any Yoshi egg in Challenge Mode.  This 
randomly  cycles through all 32 boards really fast.  You press 'A' and 
it stops.  It then shows you the approximate location of the Yoshi egg 
in that level. Pretty self explanatory.
