#2 Super Mario Bros
```````````````````

#2.1 Story
``````````
The Mushroom Kingdom was a peaceful place, until the fateful day that Bowser
used his twisted magic to invde it. Bowser turnes most of the Mushroom
Kingdom's people into rocks, bricks, and mushrooms. He even kidnapped Princess
Toadstool and held her captive in his huge castle.

When the Mario Brothers, Mario and Luigi, heard this, they knew that they
needed to do something. They decided to battle Bowser and his evil minions to
save the Princess. Can they do it?



#2.2 How to Play
````````````````
First, pick 1 PLAYER or 2 PLAYER mode. When you play the 2 PLAYER mode,
controller 1 is for Mario and controller 2 is for Luigi.

On the Screen
`````````````
From left to right on the top:
Score
Number of coins you have
Stage
Timer

In the middle:
World you are in
Number of lives you have

Goal
````
At the end of each stage, there is a flagpole and a castle. The higher you grab
on to the flagpole, the higher of a score you get. When you begin a stage, the
TIMER starts to count down. The more time you have left when you grab the
flagpole, the higher of a bonus you receive.

If one player clears a stage or loses a life in 2 PLAYER mode, it will be the
other player's turn.

In Super Mario Bros and Super Mario Bros: The Lost Levels, the high scores are
saved too. To reset the high scores, press the A, B, L and R Buttons at the
same time.



#2.3 Controller Functions (Type A)
``````````````````````````````````
Control Pad:
- Move left or right
- Go into a pipe
- Crouch

Select Button:
- Nothing

Start Button:
- Pause the game

X, Y Buttons
- Run
- Shot a fire ball

A, B Buttons
- Jump
- Swim

On the File Select screen, if you choose the B type controller layout by using
the SELECT Button, the B Button laybout will function the same as the X and Y
buttons.


#2.4 Controlling Mario
``````````````````````
Running: Left or Right + Y
When running, you can go over holes that are one space wide.

Jumping: B
The longer you hold the jump Button, the higher you jump.

Crouching: Down

Getting into a pipe: Up + B or Down

Swimming: Left or Right + B


#2.5 Items
``````````
Mario can get powered up by picking up items. These items are usually hidden
inside of blocks. All you need to do is punch them from below.

Blocks: Normal Block
        ? Block

Items: Mushroom
       Fire Flower
       Star
       1-Up Mushroom
       Coin
A 1-UP mushroom adds on life.
Collecting 100 coins adds one life, too.

Mario + Mushroom = Super Mario
Super Mario + Fire Flower = Fire Mario
Any Mario + Star = Invincible Mario


#2.6 How to Defeat Enemies
``````````````````````````
- Punch the block that they are on: B
- Jump on them: B
- Knock them down with a moving object (like a koopa shell): Left + Y
- Become Fire Mario and throw fire balls: Y

LOOK OUT! You lose one Mario if:
- An enemy touches you.
    - If you are hit when you are Super Mario or Fire Mario, you just turn back
to small (normal) Mario.
    - After you turn back to small Mario, you are invincible for a short period
of time (as long as Mario is Flashing).
- You drop into a hole in the ground or a hole underwater.
- The times reaches zero.



#3 Walkthrough
``````````````

World 1-1
`````````

If you have played Nintendo before then you must have at least played this
world at least one time, and for the 99% of those who have played it like
fourteen million times like me then you don't really need a walkthrough but
since it is a part of the game and it is the beginning and very important, it
cannot be skipped.

As you advance throught the world kill or defeat ot destroy, what ever, the
Goomba, hit the question (?) blocks and in one of them there is a mushroom, get
it.

Continue going through the pipes until you finally reach the last one of them,
when you get to the last one go in by pressing down on the control stick, after
you enter you will find a whole amount of coins waiting for you to pick them
up.

Get out of the pipe and you will virtually have finished the level, only a few
more things to do. Go up the stairs, these stairs appear in every world,
sometimes in less quantity but they appear, when you get to the top of the
stairs, don't go down, instead run and try to get to the top of the flagpole to
get the highest score possible.

The is another way to get through the world, by not entering the pipe.

Jump almost in the middle of the mountain that you can see in the far behind
right next to the pipe you decided not to go in.

An invicible block will appear and a 1-up mushroom will appear, so obivously,
go get it before it falls into the underworld!

Jump the pit, don't fall, if you do fall, you suck, hit the ? block, it
contains a Fire Flower if you are Super Mario, if you are small Mario it
contains a mushroom, grab it to be able to shoot fireballs from your nose,
really just look for yourself!

Just continue on until you see two magical bricks magically floating in the
air, hit or punch the one that is on the right and a Star will pop out, grab it
and run all the way through the end of the world, but be careful, don't get
stuck and don't fall anywhere.

It is a really shor level, you will notice that if you play it like 5 times,
every detail it contains will be stuck up in your mind for ever and ever and
ever until you die and maybe for the rest of the eternity if you don't lose
your mind when you die and go to heaven or wherever you think you are going to
end up after death, but whatever.

World 1-2
`````````
As you begin in this world just do the obvious, defeat the two Goombas that are
walking towards you to try to kill you, but since they are the worse enemy they
have a 0.000000001% possibility to do so, now hit the first ? block of the five
that appear there to get a Fire Flower.

As you pass down the blocks, hit them to get some coins.

Now jump to the arrangement of bricks that look somehow like a big W.

At this point of the world you can jump up and destroy the brickes that are in
the ceiling and continue running through until you get to the very end of the
ceiling where you'll have to fall down at almost the end of the world.

Jump down to the elevator going down to hades and before you get to hades jump
over to the right and into the pipe to the right of you into the regular and
unsecret exit.

If you want to get through the game much quicker then instead of getting on the
express to hades, jump to the other side of the ceiling and continue on, let
fall down into three pipes which is a warp zone that can take you to worlds 2,
3 or 4. if you want to get to world 8 before your mom turns off the Nintendo
for playing 28 hours straight then go here and get inside the world 4 pipe, if
you don't have a mom or you don't care at all at what she says then do as you
please.

In this world in the orignal Super Mario Bros that was made for the original
Nintendo (NES), you can do a trick to go to a world in which is unescapable,
meaning you are stuck and can't escape, it is called The Minus World it is the
World -1.

After you get in, you will never get out of it no matter what you do.

Fortunately, that problem was only in the orignal catridge for the NES, in this
catridge for the All-Stars in SNES the problem was fixed, so you will never get
to see this world on the SNES but hey, you won't get stuck and Nintendo won't
get emails saying "Your game sucks, it has an unescapable world in it!
LOSERS!!!"

World 1-3
`````````
This level is one of the simplest of them all in the game, it was designed, I
think, to let you get used to object magically floating in the air.

It is basically a straightfoward world, just go ahead and jump when necessary,
you don't even need to run to get over a hole, how much easier can it be?

At the beginning go to the lower pathway to get the Mushroom or Flower from the
? block. Then just take whatever path that you wish that will get you coins,
normally all you have to do it go forward, very easy.

To get on the stairs get on the floating ledge and from there jump to the
stairs.

Remember to get the highest score that you can in the flagpole, the higher the
better.


World 1-4
`````````
In the first castle, there are fewer enemies than in any other castle, obviusly
since it is the first.

Just go ahead and ahead and be careful of the moving lines of fires that you
burn you to hell.

The hardest part of this castle, well, actually the less easiest part of the
castle is the get the mushroom at the beginning of the castle, all you need to
do is have some experience in jumping which is easy to get.

Just go ahead until you finally get to Bowser, it is not that long so forget
the finally.

If you have a Fire Mario just shoot him and shoot him a whole lot of times
dodging his fireballs until he turns into a Goomba and dies, jajajajaja!

If you don't have Fire Mario or want to get past him faster just jump on over
him and get to the end of the ledge to make the ledge disappear and Bowser to
burn in the hot lava and feel the pain, now yes, jajajajajaja!!! So you finally
cleared the castle.

When you get the bag and open it a toad comes out and say something like this:

"Thank You, Mario (Luigi).

But our Princess is in another castle..."

Man I am sick of that frase.


World 2-1
`````````
At the beginning of the wolrd you will find a Mushroom in the middle of the
three blocks of ? blocks.

Defeat the Goomba and just skip the Koopa-Troopas by jumping on top of the
floating bricks that are magically floating over their heads.

Just continue on and sometime you will have the chance to get a star.

A little after that happens, you might and will see a row that contains five
bricks that are suspended over 2 rows of ? blocks.

Just hit the middle block of those to get a beanladder to appear before your
eyes without watering anything.

Go up to it and you will be in a bonus place that is located in the clouds,
don't worry, Mario can walk in the clouds, somehow.

Collect the largest amount of coins until you reach the end of the bonus and
fall off the hole at the far right.

Now keep going to the springboard, whle you are on it hold the A Button and
jump super-ultra-mega high (compared to what you usually do and I am over-
exagerating) to be able to get to the top of the wall the keeps you from going
any further.

Once you are here don't forget to get to the highest possible point in the
flagpole, the highest in this game is 5000, so get or else.


World 2-2
`````````
This is the first water world of all the Super Mario Bros game.

And again, don't worry, Mario is outstanding and can breathe underwater,
amazing huh?

You can't, I can't, nobody can except Mario and Luigi, no wonder why they
always manage to rescue Peach (the Princess if you don't know her name yet).

First of all, this is another easy level so use it to get used to water world.

The first enemy you find here is a Blooper, if you have Fire balls, shoot him
if you want to, if you don't then just go past him, it shouldn't be hard since
it is basically the goal of water levels, not to get touched.

Almost all the coins in this world are trap in a pathway where there is a
mystical water current that want to take you down to hades for you to burn in
hell for trying to steal its coins or for stealing its coins.

In the Lost Levels, going for the coins would just be nuts, but that we will
cover it later on.

In this game nothing will be bothering you so much for you not to get those
coins, don't get them you you don't want to since they are a lure for you to
die.

Keep going forward and avoid any enemy you encounter including the Cheep-Cheeps
and every fish until you get to the pipe on the right end and get in it.

Once outside get through the stairs and try to get 5000 on the flagpole, don't
forget to get easy points, at least if you read my FAQ you won't forget because
I'll always remember you if I remember myself.

World 2-3
`````````
This level is the first one that lets you know that the Cheep-Cheeps not only
float around in water to disturb you life but they also float around in the air
to keep you from jumping with no fear.

This world isn't hard at all just jump from ledge to ledge while avoiding the
flying fish that attempt to kill you and bust your life.

Since the only enemies, basically, are the crappy flying fish that are choiking
in the way to touch you, shooting fire balls won't be necessary at all, unless
they kill you once and you get the fire balls and want to take revenge.
There is a ? Block at the middle of the world for the revenge (diabolic laugh).

When you go off the stairs no more Cheep-Cheeps will bother you and the end of
the level will be done for.

Remember to get 5000 point in the flagpole, don't you dare forget.


World 2-4
`````````
This castle is another example of a castle that all you have to do is avoid the
firelines that are willing to kill you, so don't let them.

Get the Mushroom at the beginning and continue through the road that you
please, it is you who is playing.

At the elevators almost at the end of the castle you will need to carefully
time you jumps to be able to get past through it to get to Bowser.

Once you get to Bowser use the same strategy as before to get rid of him, fire
him fire balls from your nose if you have them until he dies and never comes
back, or jump over him to the end of the ledge to make the ledge disappear and
make him falls down the hot lave and burn to hell.

You will automatically go ahead and open the bag in which there is Toad and
again he will say:

"Thank You, Mario (Luigi)

But our princess is in another castle..."


World 3-1
`````````
Inside the thrid ? block from left to right inside it contains a Mushroom punch
in and it will pop out, get it if you don't already have the flower or if you
are small.

Go through the two pipes over them, if you want go in the second, it is a room
full of coins.

Get the Flower if you don't have it and go through the pipe at the bottom right
of the screen.

Once you are out in the world, shoot or defeat if you don't have the Fire
Flower, defeat the 3 Goombas walking around on the bridge and you'll see three
bricks, the one of the far left contains a Star, punch it and get it as soon as
possible, after that run through the Hammer Brothers to kill them easier since
they are really annoying without a Star.

In the second ? block there is a mushroom or fire flower if you don't have it
for whatever reason, get it and feel powerfull.

Go ahead into the springboard but do not use it to get to the 2 rows of cricks,
instead just go over them and get to them from the right to the left not from
left to right (Tip: Most people write with the right hand).

Once you are in between the two rows punch the far right one to see another
magical beanladder grow up without any watering, go up to another bonus are
with a whole bunch of free coins.

Get the most possible amount of coins until you reach the end and have to fall
down to continue.

After you have gotten down into the ground from the sky, just go through
straightforward until you reach the end of the world which is not so far away.

Don't forget to get to the highest point of the flagpole to get 5000 points,
I'll always remember you.


World 3-2
`````````
You will definitely be surprised at the possibilities of this world if it is
your first time, jump on the first Koopa-Troopa and kicj his shell while he is
still hiding, run while you are following it to see all the enemies that it
kills while it is going through the enemies killing them for one eason or the
other, at the end you will find out that you will get an extra life for doing
that, pretty cool, huh.

From this point forward just continue on using your insticntive method of
survival to survive in this world full of ugly and fat enemies that are all
piled up in the ground, perhaps that makes it harder but...nah, for get it.

But do not forget at any cost, even if your dog dies at that moment to get to
the highest part of the flagpole which is 5000 points, you won't be able to get
it always but at least try don't you think.


World 3-3
`````````
This world is a world that you basically are in the air with floating stuff
magically on the air, you have to keep on them to be able to survive.

This time it has a few added features, like the ones that goes one side p when
you get on the other side and the other one that goes down to the gorund to
break in a thousand pieces just because you step on it.

At the platform magically floating and that when you step on it it doesn't goes
crashing to the floor, from there jump to the single-coin trees, that means to
jump to the trees that have a coins each on the top of it is you don't
understand my grammar.

Just before the flagpole there is a pulley of two platforms, don't forget to
get to the highest point of the flagpole to get the super 5000 points that you
should have gotten on the other worlds too, only if you are the best in this
game and you should really put that as a goal. Don't forget, 5000 points!


World 3-4
`````````
At the start of the castle Podoboos come out from the lava and try to burn you
to hell, just jump after they start falling so that they can't hit you and you
get past them and stick your tongue at them after that.

In the row of ? blocks, get the mushroom or fire flower if you need it, not if
you want to, just kidding.

Go on until you reach the firelines that go around and around, be careful and
don't run through them this time, wait until there is an opening and run like
hell.

After a little more Podoboos come out to make or to try to make your lives
miserable you will reach Bowser, dodge his fire balls and shoot him fire balls,
or just go over him into the end of the ledge to make it disappear and make
Bowser fall into the lava again or for the first time ever.

After that you automatically go to open the bag, Toads come up and say the same
thing as always:

"Thank You, Mario (Luigi)

But our princess is in another castle..."


World 4-1
`````````
Just a little bit of time after you get out of the castle number three, you
will see the first Lakitu.

Anyways, hit or punch the lower ? block to get a mushroom if you are Small or
Normal Mario or you will get a Fire Flower if you are already Super Mario, and
if you are Fire Mario you will also get a Fire Flower.

Now jump to the top and defeat Lakitu.

During the next area jump as long as you can and the Lakitu will appear a
little after you get through the four question ? blocks which are arranged in a
orderly a patter of two by two.

Just keep going through while avoiding the ugly guys falling from the sky or
from him, keep going until you get to a pipe that you can get into it.

Once you are inside get the coins all spread out through it, and if you want
hit the lonely block on the right side of the screen to get a mushroom or a
flower depending on your status, after that just get out of the pipe through
the right.

When you get outside, the Lakitu will be there trying to kill you and to make
you life miserable, so don't let him, just manage to get to the staircase with
carefulness of not falling for running, and once you get there he will go away
because the game was designed like that.

There is a multiple coin in the brick below the stairs, get them, then get on
top of it and try to jump back to the highest point of the stairs and do not
forget at any cost to try to get the 5000 points in the flagpole.

I usually I never miss in this one because that brick helps, from the stairs
just run and let yourself fall, you will fall on top of the brick and exactly
at the time when you land on the brick press the jump button to jump and you
should get the 5000 points, at least it did work for me the million time that I
played this game.

World 4-2
`````````
In this world you have the chance to skip virtually the half of the levels that
exist in the game.

And it is not that hard, just look for a beanstalk.

At the first mass of bricks that is in front of you once you enter this world,
get the mushroom or flower in the top right corner of the bricks.

In the ceiling is a hidden brick with lots of coins, somewhere up there.

If you think time will be enough look for it, if not then continue on to the
expressos to hell (elevators going down).

Hit the question blocks to get coins and a mushroom or flower, after that look
above you.

You will see 3 blocks above you that you can't reach if you see it like that,
but what you don't know is that there is a invisible block below each one of
them.

But don't jump below all of them, just don't jump below the first one so that
you have enough space to get the beanstalk thingy out. Get on the second one
and hit the leftmost block to get the ladder thing.

After you get up through it you will find a whole lot of coins and three pipes
leading to worlds 6, 7 and 8 which is the last one.

But if you want to see every world in the game and not finish the game so fast
then just go on ahead and instead of getting the beanstalk up just  get on the
bricks there to get onto the ceiling, if you continue on you'll find a warp to
world 5.

To continue of to the next level fall down where the Buzzy Beetle wals down the
staircase, and also make sure the the man-eating plant in the tall pipe is
inside before getting on top of it.

Get into the pipe and remmeber to try to get the 5000 points point in the flag
to get a very high score at the end.

World 4-3
`````````
If you were stupid enough (no offense just a joke) to not take the warps, you
will end up in this level, but it's not that bad since it looks cool, but it
doesn't have too much to offer you.

At the very start jump while running or you won't reach the other side, this is
one of the easiest levels so you won't need much help, ver easy if I may say.

At the final poitn of the level just wait until the ledge moving vertically is
at the highest point to be able to get the 5000 points in the flagpole, don't
you ever forget, if you get every 5000 points in the flagpole in the game at
the end you'll have 120,000 more points, so it is important for your high
score.


World 4-4
`````````
This is the first castle that has something different and that you might need
help since it is a labyringth or however you say it, if you take the wrong turn
you'll end up in the same place which is very annoying if you don't know the
path and you are playing with no sound due to your parent's sleep.

When you get the you huge brick in you path take to top path, if you run across
there over the narrow pits you will listen to a ding noise indicating that you
are right.

Keep going and climb up the top row, once in the top drop to the bottom through
a little pit, lookout for the firetail.

To make sure you are in the right path you should be seeing the fireballs
Bowser spits, once you get to where he is, watch out for the Podoboo and the
firetail on the bridge rotating around to try to kill you.

Kill him however you want and continue on to the next level since the princess
is not here either.


World 5-1
`````````
This is the first level in which you will be able to see to flying bullets that
appears almost at every second that you are in this world, but they are not a
real problem this time because this level is a level that doesn't has too much
of obstacles so it won't be so hard, just keep jumping above them when they get
close to you.

Like I said before just keep going on ahead jumping on enemies to kill them,
basically that is this world, nothing more but that.

You will find a pipe that you can't reach with a normal jump and you can know
that because when you jump you can't reach it.

To reach it, use the bricks to get to it or when a flying bullet comes close
jump on it and then to the pipe, do whichever is easier for you.

After you come out from the pipe, the level is basically done for, keep running
and running leaving the bullets following you behind until you reach the end of
the level and get the 5000 points in the flagpole, remember that it is an
important thing when it comes to the high score.


World 5-2
`````````
At the begining you will reach a bullet shooter not far ahead and to be able to
get through it it is not as easy as to get through a buller, all you need to do
is concentrate.

After you finally get through with it, go in to the first pipe that you see or
find or whatever, just get into the pipe that is after a hammer throwing
turtles.

You will end up in a world with lots of water, here all you have to do is
survive and get the coins, to survive just don't get below an elevator going
down or they will suck you down to your unevitable doom.

Once you get out of the water pipe, you'll see two rows of blocks, jump in the
middle of them, and at the rightmost brick of the top one you will find a star
that will make you invincible for some seconds.

At the end of the level you will see that you need to jump at some very tricky
jumps, but they are not that hard to handle, all you have to do is run and
jumpp to get through them with basically no problem.

If you are not Flower Mario then get the mushroom or flower along that way so
that you become big and intimidate the enemies with your fire balls coming out
of your nose.

At the very end of the level just concentrate not to fall and get the 5000
points in the flagpole, you will see how importnt it is once you compete with
you freinds to see who gets the highest score, this made me win.


World 5-3
`````````
When you come into this world you will see that it is basically the same stuff
as world 1-3 but now with some little difference but not that much.

The first difference is the the flying bullets are all over the place which is
one more obstacle but it is not that hard to evade.

Now this may be that you didn't notice but the platforms of six blocks now on;y
have four blocks, you will notice when you see it but all you have to do is be
careful and don't try to go through the fastest that you can.

Those are the only things that are different, the rest is basically the same,
so if you got through world 1-3 in less than half a minute you get through with
this one in less than a minute, seriously.

Just be careful when jumpimng since it is the only added problem that you get,
you shouldn't have much trouble.

Once you get to the end the flying bullets will go out for dinner and leave you
alone, don't forget to get the 5000 points in the flagpole.


World 5-4
`````````
You will notice that this world's castle is exactly the same as the second
castle, of course since it is a 5 instead than a 2 it has to have something
new.

At the beggining you will see the the fire tail thing is much larger than the
first one, so you'll have to jump at once istead of staying there to grab the
mushroom, don't grab unless you are experts like me because you'll end up the
same way or worse.

Take the bottom path again, the firetails here were doubled but its no big deal
if you made it up to here.

Just keep going on ahead until you reach the Podoboos, just ignore them but
don't touch them, get past them to reach Bowser.

If killed with fireballs it will turn into a Lakitu but you can kill him
whichever way you think is better, my better way is to come with at least a
mushroom and go through to get touched, you'll be invincible for a few seconds,
during that time run to the end and make him fall, but if you want score, do as
you wish.

And yet again, the ugly princess is not here either so keep going on ahead
until the princess decides to stay in one castle.


World 6-1
`````````

Well, in this world the only enemy in which you should have some problems is
the Lakitu, os remember to be very careful about it.

Well, obviously just run and run and run and run, getting along the way every
mushroom and/or flower that is available for you to get and be just not to get
hit by the lakitu.

After running for some quite a lot of time, you should be able to get to a high
enough point to  be able to get the lakitu and torture it, not really but when
you are high enough, just jump on it or shot him if you can.

After killing him the first time, after running for a while without the worry
of being killed by those spine guys, the lakitu will come again to make your
life miserable, but don't let him make your life miserable, instead you make
his life miserable.

No, do not attempt to kill the lakitu this time, if you are good at running
without falling all the time, then do so if you are not good of running, which
I doubt very deeply, then try to evade his monsters.

Just keep going through the level until the lakitu starts to back out, when he
is away that means that you are at the end of the level, so jump up the stairs
and do not forget to the the super bonus of the flag, try to get the 5000 extra
points at all time.


World 6-2
'''''''''

Well, I must accept that this level is one of the most easier levels of all, if
you think it is hard, then you also think that world 1-1 is hard so there must
be no complaining about this level since it is one of the easiest one of them
all.

But still, whether you think that it is hard, or whether you think that it is
easy, my walkthrough might help you a bt at least, or maybe nothing if you are
the creator of the game or you just happen to know every single secret in the
game.

Get inside of the very first pipe in this world, I bet you didn't thought that
would be possible, and if you did please do not email me about it, I don't
care.

Anyway, that pipe leads to a coin room, get every coin there fast or if you
don't care about the coins just go out through the other pipe.

You will also notice that in this world there are lots and lots of pirahna or
whatever those plants coming out from the pipes are called, well there are lts
of them and that is the only reall thing about the level, but it is not that
hard to get through them, just stay at the very edge barely touching the pipe
but not falling from it, if you can't then just jump whenever the pirahna plant
is hiding or if you are very good, kill them with your fire attacks, but that
would be nearly impposible for more than 80 percent of you, and for those of
the 20 percent that can, 90 percent of the times you won't have it with you.

WOW, that was a very long sentence if I may say so, whatever, just keep doing
that over and over again until you get to the finish which is the flag, don't
forget or remember to get the most points possible out of the flag, the max is
5000 points, I bet you know that by now but  just to remember you.

But don't only remember you have to do it, well, you don't have to do it but it
would be a good idea if you did it, 5000 extra points at the end can't harm
you, so why not?

World 6-3
'''''''''

To be able to get through this level the easy way, and maybe the only way since
you have to stay on the high platform,  go through the level the highest place
possibe or it will be very hard to go through.

The question is, why do you have to stay high, the answer is because sometimes
you will not be able to get to the higher part if you are on the lower
platform, and sometimes there will be no lower platform at al, so I suggest to
do the best that you can to be able to keep mario or luigi on the high
platform.

The basic enemies in this world are the bullets, they are flying everywhere and
are gonna get you if you stay still for too long, but sometimes those bullets
might save your life if you are good. Once I fell and but stepped on a bullet
and magically were on the high platform again, but that would just be way too
much luck.

As always, every bad guys that is follwing you during the whole level it will
leave once you are getting near to the end, and these ones will do the same,
when they leave, concentrate on not falling and also to be fast, normally you
won't be able to get the 5000 points from the flag but if you have good timing
and are good at moving Mario at high speeds then you should be able to get the
5000 points at the flagpole.

After you end this level, you will go to a castle that would be so unnecessary
if you would hace just taken the shortcut in world 4-2, but sometimes, you
either didn't knew that or just wanted to go through the game the normal way,
so prepare yourself for the castle the same way that you have prepared for
every other castle.

What I do to prepare myself for a castle is to let go off of the controler,
clean my sweat of my hands in my pants and grab the controller back, it ain't
much but, whatever just get on with it!!!

World 6-4
'''''''''

Haven't you noticed something familiar on this castle, haven't you been here
before, that is the question, well, yes and no because the castle has exactly
the same layout as the first castle and no you haven't been here before this
because this castle has more enemies that the first castle making that the
difference.

At the beginning you should get the mushroom or the flower whichever you can
get but it is not necessary if you have experience and know you won't get hit
by any enemy, even tough I get it just to not have problem with Bowser at the
end, I just let him hit me and while I'm invincible I through to his doom.

Anyway, get it if you feel like getting it if not then don't.

There is aslo another thing different in this castle than the first castle,
Bowser now is more powerful, well it is not actually more powerful but he now
has new items that have been specially made to kill you, those items are ugly
hammers which he throws up and grvity brings them down to you, as in every
other area of the game that has them.

If you managed to get to Bowser with a Mushroom or a Flower, then you should
just go through , let him touch you and while you are in the small amount of
time just get him down the bridge and into the lava, that is the easiest way to
get to defeat this ugly guy.

On the other hand, if you did not managed at all to get to Bowser with a
Mushroom or a Flower (all you needed to do was time your jump correctly) then
you should beware of the fire jumping thing and the hammers, stay close to himm
but not to close so that the hammers don't hit you, since you won't be able to
jump above him then go beneath him, when he jumps and since you are supposed to
be near him run beneath him and throw him down mercilessly.

You will get to another bags that contains a whole bunch of toads except that
this time there are 7 toads, not the big difference because you didn't get the
Princess but whatever, just keep on to the next world which is the last one
before the very last one, if you don't understood I don;t care, keep on.

World 7-1
'''''''''

If you think that the game has been diificult up to this poinbt you will have a
very rough time from here on, but I don't think that you think that these last
6 worlds have been hard, I played through them when I was just 5 (I'm 15 now),
so it shouldn't have been hard at all for you, but from here on the game get
trickier and harder, not actually harder but you actually have to make things
the good way and you won't have luck this time.

First of all you should concentrate on not getting hit by those crossfires, you
wanna now why, it is very simple, because if you do you wil get hit and/or die,
therefore losing a life.

Once you get through that part, guess what, the same things as in world 6-4,
ugly and disgusting hammers, if you have a harsh time on these I don't blame
you because these guys are the guys that I hate the most, they are the only
ones that gave me a hard time.

Once you get through them obviously not by jumping on them, you should kill
them by hitting them from below, and if I'm wrong and you can't do that then
jump on them with a good timing.

After killing those ugly turtles, go insisde the next pipe and that leads to a
coin room, they always do but whatever, just get the most coins in there
possible and in the most fastest speed available.

After getting out of the pipe, you will come to basically but not exactly the
same enemies from before, be careful of those ugly crossfires and then guess
what... more hammers, just kill them the same way you have always done and
continue on through.

Just keep on going being very careful not to get hit by any enemy at all
because for what I have guessed you a little Mario therefore if they touch you,
you are dead.

Keep on and once you get to the flag, get the highest possible for you but do
not, I repeat do not risk too much for 5000 points, they are just not worth it
if you die, anyway, just get ahold of the highest point in the pole netting
yourself more points and go on to the next level or world or whatver you call
those things.

World 7-2
'''''''''

Well, don't you think that recreatina a level from an easier and lower world is
just lack of imagination, well this time they did it again, they recreatede
this wrold from the same world of the series of the 2 worlds, if you do not
understand what I am trying to says is that this world is the same thing as the
2-2 world, except a little bit harder, the is obvious because it is world seven
and not world two so it had to be harder.

There is obviously, some difference between this world and its predecessor,
that is that there are lots of more enemies around and this time some of them
are even faster and the currents that take you down are a little bit stronger,
here is the walkthrough of world 2-2, if you only copied this part just in
case:

"And again, don't worry, Mario is outstanding and can breathe underwater,
amazing huh?

You can't, I can't, nobody can except Mario and Luigi, no wonder why they
always manage to rescue Peach (the Princess if you don't know her name yet).

First of all, this is another easy level so use it to get used to water world.

The first enemy you find here is a Blooper, if you have Fire balls, shoot him
if you want to, if you don't then just go past him, it shouldn't be hard since
it is basically the goal of water levels, not to get touched.

Almost all the coins in this world are trap in a pathway where there is a
mystical water current that want to take you down to hades for you to burn in
hell for trying to steal its coins or for stealing its coins.

In the Lost Levels, going for the coins would just be nuts, but that we will
cover it later on.

In this game nothing will be bothering you so much for you not to get those
coins, don't get them you you don't want to since they are a lure for you to
die.

Keep going forward and avoid any enemy you encounter including the Cheep-Cheeps
and every fish until you get to the pipe on the right end and get in it.

Once outside get through the stairs and try to get 5000 on the flagpole, don't
forget to get easy points, at least if you read my FAQ you won't forget because
I'll always remember you if I remember myself."

World 7-3
'''''''''

Remember what I was saying about the lack of imagination it means that they had
to recreate a world, well guess what, they did it again, not smart I know but
what ever you just have to keep on playing because you already bought the game,
and if you didn't then just keep playing because you are almost to the end of
the game.

Once more, they is a difference in this world than that of his past world, it
is world 2-3, they didn't went much longer than that, just one more level ahead
and BANG, but whatever, the difference is that there are now Koopa Troopas all
around delaying just a little bit but it is basically the same thing, so here
the the walkthrough for the world 2-3 just in case you only decided to print
form world 7 and below or whatever:

"This level is the first one that lets you know that the Cheep-Cheeps not only
float around in water to disturb you life but they also float around in the air
to keep you from jumping with no fear.

This world isn't hard at all just jump from ledge to ledge while avoiding the
flying fish that attempt to kill you and bust your life.

Since the only enemies, basically, are the crappy flying fish that are choiking
in the way to touch you, shooting fire balls won't be necessary at all, unless
they kill you once and you get the fire balls and want to take revenge.
There is a ? Block at the middle of the world for the revenge (diabolic laugh).

When you go off the stairs no more Cheep-Cheeps will bother you and the end of
the level will be done for.

Remember to get 5000 point in the flagpole, don't you dare forget."

World 7-4
'''''''''

Yes, recreating worlds is just not good but don't worry at all because it won't
happen again, at least not in this game, because it did happen with the rise of
the GBA and stuff, but no more recreations of worlds in this game, no more.

Well, this is a casttle so be prepared for the ultimate castle of them all,
just kidding it is as easy as any other castle except that it is just a little
bit more harder, that is obvious because it is the next-to-last castle in the
game.

Well anyways, jump ahead the sinking platform without you sinking with them and
beware of the ugly guys that are there to kill you, so don't let them touch you
and you will be alright, unless you sink down with the platforms too.

Now this is what you have to do, go down, then middle and fast go up, if done
correctly you should listen to three sounds that confirm you did it right, if
you have the volume down because you are playing at 3 am and your parents said
to go to sleep then bad luck just do whatever you think is right.

Then, after you are at the next part get past the fire tail thing and drop down
and jump to the second ledge of the middle row, you just listen to another
sound confirming you did it correct, just turn up the volume up a bit or wear
headphones whatever!

Now after that you just need one more sound to be able to get to whre Bowser
is, so to get the last one get to the very top and you should listen to it, now
go battle the next-to-last Bowser and do not let him kill you or you would have
to do the same ting over again.

Just do whatever you did before to kill him, I suggest that if you are fire
Mario of SuperMario just go on ahead, let him touch you and while you are
invincible let him down the bridge, if you try to shoot him to death he might
kill you and make it harder for you, but if you came along as normal Mario then
just stay near him evading all of his attacks and when he jumps go beneath him
and throw him to his doom.

Finally, the last ugly bag of toads in it, this is the last caslt in which
toads were kept captive, so you should be happy but also feel sort of dumb,
because you could have taken the warp to world 8-1 from world 4-2 instead of
doing all thoses thing and taking so much frustationg and so many Marios dead
and all, you should not feel good at all.

Here is a tip from me that should apply to all your life, always take the
shorcuts that do not affect the outcome of anything.

World 8-1
'''''''''

Firs of all, in all the previous level you were able to take your time at
almost everything, but this is one though level and you should not, I repeat,
should not take you time for nothing, if you cannot control Mario going the
fastest possible then you will not ge through this level, just run and run and
run and be careful not getting killed for running too much, but still you
should run as much as you can or you won't make it in time, the timer is too
small for such a long level.

Now, at the start of the level run!!! Look for the pipe that has no plant
coming out of it to kill you, there should be a coin room inside, just drop to
the lower level get all those coins and hit the last brick of coins if you can
to get the most coins possible, if you didn't understand then just keep on
through the pipe, do not loses any time.

After coming out of the pipe head right and do it fast, do not atempt to get
inside the corral of the turtle, instead jump above him and keep on, I think
there is something there but I don't remember since I barely never get it,
maybe a star or something but at this part it shouldn't be that useful since
you can get past the enemis by jumping above them and killing them is not
necessary.

Now when the floor get to be like this: # # # # # # then don't stop and jump on
each square, instead just keep running, Mario can overlap a square if it is
running but beware of the turtles jumping around, I think that they are at the
second places of this so there you have to wait for them to fall down but
immediatly after go runninf through there.

After that you will come to a floating wall of bricks, do not go over it
instead hit the third brick while you come running so you must have some
timing, and keep running to get the star that came out of the brick that you
just hit, this tar is a must since it really helps alot so you can stop like
about 5 seconds here is necessary but don't hit all the bricks just get the
star and run!!!!!

After getting the star just run and run and run and run and run before the star
runs out, you have to make some running jumps to get past the level but don't
you stop at any point to calculate how much you need to jump, at this point you
have to think fast and press that button fast and accordingly to the time it
should be pressed.

After the star end you should be near to the end of the level, just jump the
other runninf jumps that you should not stop in the middle because if you do
you won't make it just for the time, but also because you will die!!!

After jumping and getting past those pits, they shouldn't be that hard, here
comes the steps into the end of the level, here you should jump with precision
and after you land on on stick stop and immediately after jump to the other and
keep doing that, but don't you fall or it will be stupid of your part dieing at
the end.

This time I will not make you get the 5000 points of the flag, just do what you
can, I have gotten the highest point of the flag in this world but I didn't
stop to make calculations, I just jumped fast because I was out of time but I
made it.

World 8-2
'''''''''

Well, now you shouldn't worry about the time this time, only about your life
and about surviving as much as you can, because this wordl does have time but
it does have enemies as well.

First of all you can get a life here if I am not mistaken, just jump ahead of
the stairs and at the top kill that ugly cloud and fast, after that jump on tha
bouncer to make a life come up from where you just hit, keep going along with
the life, do not get to far away from it and also be sure not to get killed byt
the enemies there, at the end of there, the life should start falling, so
before it actually falls to low, grab it to get another life, you should do
this every time you die, that way you should not die at all until you get
through it.

Next, you will encounter lots and lots and lots and lots of bullet flying all
over the place trying to get you, you should try to get the mushroom there but
if you are not good better not risk it, so just jump and keep up high, the
highest possible or you will have a much harder time if you get through here
through the lower part, so get through the upper part to make it easier and
also to make sure you get past through this stage of the game.

Now after finally getting through you should come to a pipe, try to get inside
of it, I mean, get inside of it, not just try do it, but inside the pipe there
isn't much in there, so just get out of there and keep on with what you already
have.

Well, after getting out, you should have any trouble at all just be sure not to
get hit by any enemy and jump carefully at the end, if they kill you here
you'll have to start over again and you don't want to do that after so much
work, so be very careful of not to die and keep going to the end, try to tget
the 5000 points if you can, but whatever get the 200 point if you want just get
through to the next level or world whatever you want to call it, because after
all it is your choice.

World 8-3
'''''''''

Well, this world ain't that much you can go throuhg it in just one life without
losing any, it seems hard and it is but they can barely hits you if you know
how to move correctly, just keep going and jumping over the bullets and be sure
to kill the hammer turtles being sure not to get yourself killed, so ime your
jumps correctly, and don't worry, you do not need to hurry in ths one either,
just do it at a steady pace.

First of all just jump, but really jump a very good jump to get past every
bullets that come along being sure to be careful about dieing, just jump over
them and viola, you're past them.

The next oart of the game is virtually and literaly filled with those hammer
turtles that come along always two every time, sometime it will have platform
to jump on to, this is good but mortal, be sure to keep an eye on those hammers
and then hit them from below to keep on, but if they don't have platform you
will have to jump over them, just get used to their secuence of hammers, there
is a rest of them to throw hammer, very small rest but that is your chance, so
time it correctly and you will win this battle.

At the end of the level, you can either risk it to kill those guys or just run
under them before they kill you, do as you like but concentrate on getting past
them without dieing. There will be a brick that has lots of coins in it, once
you reach it get out every of it's coins and that means your almost at the end
of the world, see it wasn't that hard at all!

Now that you are finally at the end, be careful not to fall down andjumpinf
carefully on to each platform to get to the flag, just get whatever points you
can from this flagpole, do not risk an extra life for the end of the game world
(castle) for getting some more points, just get through to the final castle of
the game and finally save the princess.

World 8-4
'''''''''

Finally, at last, after all that work, we have finally gotten to the final
world to the castle in which the princess is at, and don't you dare get a game
over after getting out this far, because you will start from 8-1 again, so
don't you die or suffer the consecuences.

First, of all get my shortcut and everything will be good, don't take them and
do whatever you want and risk yourself, just play ok? I shouldn't be the one
telling you what to do, you have your own self-will so you do whatever you want
to do, so get out of home and start hitting every old lady out on the
streets.............just kidding, play along.

The first shorcut I have for you is to get into the second pipe you see, why
the second one and not the first one, I'll tell yu why, because you cannot go
into the first one, only into the second one, just don't question me!!

Well, ok I admit I was wrong, do not go into that pipe or you will never finish
the game, becuse you will come out through the first pipe which means that you
will go back into the second one and come out through the first one, and
therefore getting into the second one again but this time coming through the
first pipe, and then getting through the second pipe because you cannot get
into the first one but you will get out through the first one, and you will
keep doing that until you die for the time limit, so don't do that, it is a bad
idea.

Kill the three enemies here and the pipe after those enemies does not lead into
the previous pipe, so you can take it after all without having to worry about
doing all that stuff over again, go into the pipe, ok?

Keep going until you get to a floating pipe, that is the one you should go
through and not into any other pipe, I repeat, not into any other pipe, you
will need the help of a hidden block somewhere there, so hit it and get onto
the pipe and then into the pipe after you get on top of it.

Keep going and get into the pipe after the lava, it shouldn't be hard to
located, so get to it and this time there will be no secret block, but you
don't need it, so getting into that pipe, the one right after the lava.

You will end up in a room full of water and ugly enemies that want to kill you,
there is only one pipe here so it shouldn't be hard to find to it, but it sure
is hard to get to it because of the the nearby enemies and that you cannot move
too freely through water so you must be very carefull and have a lot of timing
to get past here.

Once you get out of the water room, and gotten past the bunch of enemies and
into the pipe you should come up into another room, now head past the pipe
without going into it and you should find one of those hammer turtles, just
kill it as you would normally do and say goodbye to the ugly turtle.

Now keep going and after that fire ball comes down to the lava again jump right
after that just so you can get to where the final ugly Bowser is, you have to
face him one last time before this game ends, there shouldn't be any further
delays for the battle.

Well, if you are Super Mario, or Fire Mario then let him hit you and bring him
down to the lava river below while you are in the brief moment of
invincibility, and after that viola, you finally ended the game, but if you are
normal mario, be very careful of every of of his attacks and do the same
routine of all of going beneath him when he jumps.

After finally gotten through all this trouble and finnaly getting to meat the
princess for the first time in the Mario Series, but after you see her you
realize that you should't had saved her, she iis way too ugly and she only
kisses you once, it is surely not worth it all that trouble, but whatever I
just played for the fun of it not for rescuing the ugly princess, it is the
worse princess of all, but don't worry it will get better in later versions of
the game with later and more advanced consoles.

Now, if you continue playing you should be off to play a Hard Mode of the game,
but it is the same thing, only the the enemies are different, but do whatever
you want to do, I don't care anymore!
