    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

    the levels. Though it's not too hard. I have name where all the secret 
    1-Ups, power-ups, starmen, pipes you can go down, multi-coin blocks and

    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. 
    
    World 1-1

               small staircases

                 the coin.
    Red Coin #4: Straight after Coin #3 on a high ledge
    Red Coin #5: In the last ? Block
    
    
    World 1-2
    Target Score: 38000 
    Yoshi Egg: Walk on top of the exit pipe and stand against the wall and 
               jump to get the Egg.
    Red Coin #1: The fifth ? block
    Red Coin #2: Up the top of the W formation
    Red Coin #3: On top of the 2x6 grid with the multi coin is a red coin
    Red Coin #4: Go down the pipe and hit the brick above your head at the 
                 exit pipe for a multi-coin block
    Red Coin #5: Just before the first set of moving platforms above your 
                 head is the red coin
    
    World 1-3
    Target Score: 24000
    Yoshi Egg: Straight after the second and third platforms you'll jump 
               onto a ledge with a cloud. Jump in front of the cloud for 
    the

    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.

    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.

    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.

    a 1, 3, or
    a 6, you get that many fireworks.

    Unlimited Lives 
    Go in to any level where you can get a 1UP(EXTRA LIFE). This works best 
    in level 8-2. Simply go in and get the 1UP, save it, then turn the game 
    off, then on. When you start the game you'll have an extra life. Do 
    this over and over until you have the amount of lifes you want. NOTE: 
    THIS MUST BE DONE IN THE ORIGINAL MODE.

    Warp Zone 
    On any levels that have one block roofs break through them or go on 
    lifts to get on top of them. Play the whole level on top of the roofs 
    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. 
    Submitted by James Johnson
    
    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.

    Yoshi Egg Cheat 
    Having trouble finding the Yoshi eggs in Challenge Mode? If you find 
    one Yoshi egg, then the Yoshi Egg Cheat will be activated. Go to 
    Toybox, and click on the Yoshi head. You can then find out where all 
    the other eggs are!

    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.
