1. Story

The Mushroom Kingdom was invaded by Bowser, King of the Koopas, who are 
a tribe of dark magic using turtles. The Koopas transformed the 
Mushroom People into stones, bricks and other enemies. They went to set 
their king Bowser on the throne. The Mushroom Kingdom was transferred 
into a dark, evil place.

Princess Toadstool on the other hand, could break this evil spell, but 
Bowser knew this and kidnapped the princess. Mario soon vowed he would 
see the princess, but could he get through this taunting task.

the levels. Though it's not too hard. I have name where all the secret

END OF ORIGINAL 1985!

Now you can try a hard mode that turns all the Goombas into Buzzy 
Beetles. The platforms are smaller. 1-3 has Bullet Bills, and 1-4, 2-2, 
2-3 and 2-4 are harder.


6. Challenge

You have to go through all the levels and collect 5 red coins(which 
I'll tell you in order), a yoshi egg and achieve a target score. It's 
harder than it sounds. Oh, and only go down pipes or up beanstalks if I 
tell you to, because you could miss red coins. eg: World 1-1. Also, you 
must get 10 coins out of a multi-coin block to get the red coin.

Here are some tricks you might want to help your scores in Challenge 
Mode. Having lots of time left is the most important thing because 
every second is 100pts. Race through the level as fast as you can only 
getting coins, power-ups, 1-ups, and baddies like Hammer Brothers, 
Lakitus and Koopa Troopas.

7. Super Mario Bros. for Super Players

This is a version of the Lost Levels, or Super Mario Bros. 2 in Japan. 
It's a bit easier because there is no wind and Mario jumps higher. I 
haven't found many secrets on it yet. I have completed it though. It 
just takes practice. Don't rush and down go down any pipe, any 
beanstalks and definitely any warp zones because 75% of the time they 
are bad.

World 8-2
The trick here is to hit the block near the end above a red paratroopa 
and make sure you don't get the starman

World 8-3
The trick here is to jump over the hammer brothers. And when you get to 
a spring near the end with two paratroopas I know a great trick to get 
past You can just jump over both the paratroopas. Make sure you are 
running and jump on to the spring and perfectly time your jump so you      
zoom into the air. Make sure you are holding right in the air or you'll 
fall!

World 8-4
 Here is a step by step guide:
1. At the beginning drop to the platform below and jump across the gap.
2. Go into the first pipe. The one with two grey bricks above it.
3. Go through the water part and you'll come to a pipe in a hard to 
   reach spot. Wait the pirahna plant to be up and jump down. You 
should 
   make it. You might have to wait a tiny bit longer.
4. You'll get to a lava pit with a turtle and a big fire line. Take the 
   bottom route. Try not to jump too much when you're on the ground 
   because the game kinda messes up. Don't know why
5. Then you come to two paratroopas. There is a pipe to the right. It's 
   extremely hard to do but you have to bounce on the green paratroopa 
   over to the small ledge.
6. Then you get to face not one but TWO BOWSERS! Good stuff! The ending 
   sequence is well worth it.



8. You Vs. Boo

In this mode you have to race Boo through various levels. When you beat 
him he races as your best time.

White Boo  Easy
Green Boo  Medium
Pink Boo  Hard
Black Boo  Impossible to beat

Here are some hints for the levels

World 1-1
At the beginning take the top route where you run over tiny gaps.

World 1-2
Try to stay on top of the ceiling

World 1-3
Stay on top of the numbered blocks

World 1-4
Pure skill, once you get better start the level small

World 2-1
Make sure you start the level big

World 2-2
hard, you need skill to complete this

World 2-3
Once you get really good at it, start of small, don't hit any numbered 
blocks and go as fast as you can.

World 2-4
Once you get really good you can start of small. You can jump over most 
of the spikes.



9. Vs. Game

I haven't got around to trying this yet, but it's just like You Vs. Boo 
except it's Mario and Luigi racing.

"Lost Levels" Easy Access 
Having trouble getting the 300,000 points
required to access the Lost Levels? One easy
way is to play the "Fortune Telling" game until
you get the Princess' "Extremely Lucky" 5up
bonus. Then start a new game with your ten
lives and play your way through. Stomp on
every enemy and collect every coin, and
smash a few superfluous bricks here and
there. Always try to grab the top of the
flagpole. Somewhere around world 5 you
should have more than enough points to
qualify.

Easy Points 
Go to stage 3-2. When you see the first turtle, hit it and kick the 
shell to the right. Immediately run after it, but don't touch it. If 
you keep up with it it should hit a lot of ememies and then give you a 
1-up. Now let the turtle shell hit you and repeat the process. Continue 
until you've reached the desired score. 
Submitted by Andrew4596

Extra Lives 
Before starting a new game, go to the fortune teller mode (in the toy 
box). Keep selecting cards until you get an "extremely lucky" card (it 
has Peach on it). This will give you 10 lives to start with instead of 
5.

Finding Yoshi Eggs 
To find Yoshi Eggs easier in the challenge game this is what you have 
to do: 

     Find a Yoshi egg in a level 
     Go to the Toy Box 
     In the Toy Box there should be a Yoshi picture. Go down to it and 
press A. When you click on it is should bring you to a black screen 
with scrolling numbers on the top. 
     Click A and the numbers will keep slowing down until it stops. It 
will say what world and level on the top. In the middle it will show a 
picture of the area where the Yoshi egg is found in that level. 
     Every time you get more eggs it will add more information about 
where the eggs are.

THIS MUST BE DONE IN THE ORIGINAL MODE.

Warp Zone 
On any levels that have one block roofs break through them or go on

to the VERY end of the roofs. At the end there will be one or more 
tubes which will warp you to the level shown.

Warp to Levels 6, 7 or 8 
On the level 4-2 go stand on the right side of the first falling 
platforms. Stand underneath the three blocks. Jump up and there will be 
hidden blocks. Climb on those blocks and hit the left block of the 
three. A beanstalk will appear. Climb it. You will now be in mushroom 
land with tons of coins! When you finish this small level, which has no 
enemies, you will come to a warp zone, where you'll have the chance to 
warp to the levels 6, 7, or 8.

Very High Score Cheat
All you have to do is go to level 5-1 or 3-2 in the original and hit 
the first turtle and follow it to the end.  You will hit so many other 
guys with it that you will get an extra guy.  Now just let the turtle 
you hit bounce off the green pipe and kill you.  Since you got an extra 
guy you won't loose any lives and you will just get a lot of points 
really fast!  Technically you can get unlimited points if you want to 
spend your time doing that.
