    Note: 8A1, 8B1, 8C1, 8D1, 8E1, 8F1, 8G1 choices also has info on what
    Hammer Throwing Turtles have.  (Please excuse the fact that I named
    the "Hammer Bros." Hammer Throwing Turtles, and that I also named the
    "Hammer Bros. Suit" by its original name....I just changed names of enemies
    to make them easier to identify to someone who has never played this
    game before.)
    |                        Thrashnet's POV                                   |
            This game has quality put into it.  It is one of the last games ever
    to grace the NES system.  It being a last generation title and all.  Is a
    great game to own.  I personally think that it shows all of the NES's
    capabilties, colors, graphics, and GAME PLAY.  I really don't have much to
    say about this game.  But it should not be passed over.
    |                              Intro                                       |
    |       When I made this FAQ I used Super Mario All Stars for the SNES to  |
    |get myself familiar with it.  So if you find any problems with it please  |
    |let me know.  My E-Mail address is: TGZ6@YAHOO.COM.      There are some   |
    |variations in the SNES version of Super Mario Brothers 3.  Check out the  |
    |SNES VARIATION section for more info.  And also if you have anyhting to   |
    |give me that would make this FAQ better for you and everyone else.  E-Mail|
    |me with the tip trick tactic etc.  Tell me your name and I'll give you    |
    |credit.                                                                   |
    |                          The Story                                       |
    |       Long ago there was a kingdom that existed that was named the       |
    |Mushroom Kingdom.  Of this Kingdom there are 7 worlds.  All of these      |
    |worlds were plunged into a constant golden age.  That had lasted for years|
    |and years.  But in this Golden Age there existed just one evil minded boy.|
    |His name was Bowser.  He was a boy who wanted some excitement in this     |
    |peaceful and boring world.  What happened when this boy growed up proves  |
    |more than anything that it really takes only one person to really screw   |
    |things up!  He wanted some excitement and he got it.  He used his 7 kids  |
    |to conquer all of the worlds of the Mushroom Kingdom.  And turn everything|
    |to chaos.  At that time a starnge prophecy by even a stranger man said:   |
    |"There will be a humble and simple man who will save your kingdom from    |
    |chaos!"  Many years passsed with all the signs that this "man" will appear|
    |but nothing happened.  So then who is this man?!!  There is only one      |
    |answer:                                                                   |
    |Mario                                                                     |

    |S) Door Entry-When postioned in front of a door press up to enter it.  In |

    |D) Jet Coaster Jump-On slopes which have small ramps at the bottom you can|
    |slide down and jump at the last second on the ramp to make an extra long  |
    |leap.                                                                     |

    |of the overhang then press the control pad towards where you want to land |

    |Sometimes a well-placed Koopa will do the trick.  In any cases a kicked   |
    |Koopa will clear out blocks quickly.                                      |
    |                        Tips and Tricks                                   |
            TRY TRY AGAIN: If you can't beat a Koopaling thier airship will    |
    move across to a different place.  It will try to hide behind an           |
    uncompleted area.  If you use an Anchor it will ukeep the Airship from     |
    moving.                                                                    |

    blocks to coins.  The other 2 blocks are up on the top under a 1-UP!  Then
    head to the exit.

    Stage: 4-2
    Minimum Coins Needed: 22
    Prize: Anchor
    Tips: This ones a_PAIN!!!  Towards the end of the stage when you see the P-
    Switch_DON'T_hit it. Instead head to the right and collect all the coins
    there that you see trying not ot damage the blocks then go back and hit the
    P-Switch and collect all those coins that are right next to the P-Switch
    then run through and collect all the blocks turned into coins to the right.
    And exit.
    11E) World 5 Sky World
    Stage: 5-5
    Minimum Coins Needed: 28
    Prize: P-Wing
    Tips: When you get to third pipe you see in this level hit the four blocks
    to get a power-up and 3 coins.  (You could cheat here and go into the pipe
    right before this one and come back out and collect this coins again and
    repeat until you have 28.)  After you're done collecting those go to the
    right and get all the coins on top of the Donuts there.  Then to get the
    coins on the bottom of the screen wait until a platform drops you far enough
    to get the con below then jump back up quickly and do this for all the other
    coins here.  You will need to cheat using the above mentioned procedur here
    at least 3 times to get the White Mushroom Hous to appear.
    11F) World 6 Winter Wonderland
    Stage: 6-7
    Minimum Coins Needed: 78 (WHOOOOOAAAAA NEEEEELLLLIIIIEEE!!!)
    Prize: Anchor
    Tips: Make sure you are Fire Mario before you enter this stage.  And don't
    lose the power-up.  Anyway, here at the very start of the stage and at other
    placesyou'll have to let the donut lift drop so you'll be able to collect
    the coins underneath them then jump.  Do this mentioned procedure for
    all of the stage and at the end of it.  See all the coins frozen use your
    Fire Power (ya better listened to what I told ya!) t unfreeze them and
    collect them.
    11G) World 7 Pipe Maze
    Stage: 7-2
    Minimum Coins Needed: 46
    Prize: P-Wing
    Tips: First off be Frog Mario before you enter this stage.  In between the
    first and second pipe you'll see 2 "?" blocks hit the on on the right to
    get a coin with the blue blocks underneath.  Then continue past the next
    set of 3 pipes and drop down into the one at the end of a big hole in the
    ground.  Swim to the right immediatly to avoid being pushed down.  Go to the
    far left and collect all the coins next to the P-Switch then hit the
    P-Switch.  And swim like mad when in the water to get the 2 sets of coins
    that were once blocks.  Then exit this level.
    11H) World 8 Castle of Koopa

    This section deals with those sons of Bowser's at the end of Worlds 1, 2, 3,
    4, 5, 6, and 7.  This part shows you how to beat them.
    Basic Skills: All of the Koopalings except for Wendy & Lemmy have the same
    types of wands don't get hit by the beams they shoot.  Also, you need to hit
    each Koopaling on the head 3 times to knock him out.  Also, watch out after
    you stomp them they wil fly up high in the air.
    World 1 Larry Koopa: Run under neath him when he leaps and stomp him when he
    lands.  Not much to this one.
    World 2 Morton Koopa: He is the slowest however he is faster on the draw of
    his wand.  Watch out for his wand.  And take advantage of his being slow
    and rush him and keep on stomping him.
    World 3 Wendy O. Koopa: Probably the hardest koopaling yet!  Wait until she
    throws one of her rings to jump on her head.  She will throw out 3 of them.
    Watch the way she moves accross the floor she bounces so it is hard to tell
    when she is going to jump.  And she jumps most of the time after her 2nd
    bop on her head.  She is a real B**ch.
    World 4 Iggy Koopa: This guys my favorite...check out his hairdo!!  Anyhow,
    watch for his speed.  Although this guy is fast he shouldn't be too much
    trouble (thats also another reason why I like em.)
    World 5 Roy Koopa: This guys burly.  When he lands from a jump he will make
    his entire ship shake that means you can't move so time it so that when he
    is just about to land you 'll be in the air from a jump.  Also watch out
    after you bopped him on da head once he will bounce around twice.
    World 6 Lemmy Koopa: Watch out for this sideshow!  Use the same principal as
    you did when you fought Wendy.  After he makes on ball hit him on da head.
    Avoid the balls he creates.
    World 7 Ludwig Von Koopa: This guy combines all the PHYSICAL skills of
    all the Koopalings so far.  Watch out when he jumps he makes he the entire
    airship shake, watch out for his speed, watch out for his fast draw, and
    watch out for his jumping skills.  There is one exception to the airship-
    shaking jump when you hit him once he will hit the ground 3 times in very
    short hops so jump really high, after you hit him.  This one shouldn't be to
    hard for you to handle if you beat all the others.  (He can't create Wendy's
    rings or Lemmy's balls with his wand.)
    |                           Bust Boom-Boom                                 |
    Allright first off Boom-Boom is the big turtle you meet at the end of all
    fortresses and some other levels in world 8.  He can fly in level 8, and
    probably can in other worlds as well.  And he can jump high as &$# in world
    4.  Anyway, to beat him jump on him after he removes his spikes.  You need
    to hit him 3 times before killing him.  What you can do to make this real
    easy is to jump on him once, then time your jump on him so he loses his
    spikes right when you land on him, and do the same for the last time.

            To beat Bowser position yourself on the row of bricks in the center
    of the screen.  Avoid his fire that he breathes at you.  He can breathe fire
    before and after he jumps.  He can breathe fire downwards, anyway wait until
    he jumps to crush you.  Wait until he starts to drop staright down and run
    or leap out from underneath him.  And when he lands he will break out the
    bricks he landed on then go underneath the door in the room.  And wait for
    him to jump on to you again this time wait until he lands on top of the
    door.  Then go back to where he broke those bricks the first time and wait
    until he jumps then he will break out some more bricks.  Repeat this until
    he drops down through the bricks and to his doom.  I recommend breaking out
    the bricks in the center of this level so you'll have a straight shot to the

    There are 3 magic whistles in the game which can transport you to another
    World- World 9 "The Warp Zone".  At this world you can go to any other world
    you wish...but you can only go up to certain levels if you have 1.  Get all
    3 then use on one the map and you'll be over at World 9 then use the other 2
    whistles at World 9 to skip to the end of the game.
    1st Whistle
    World 1: Grass Land
    Level: 1-3
    Tips: Get on top of the white block you see in a cluster of other blocks
    towards the end of the stage.  Hop on the white block kneel for 5 seconds
    you'll fall into the background then run to the exit.  You'll go behind the
    exit wall and you'll end up in a Mushroom House that contains the 1st
    2nd Whistle
    World 1: Grass Land
    Level: World 1 Fortress
    Tips: Go all the way to the end of the first screen.  You must be Racoon
    Mario...or if You're Big Mario hit the "?" block to get a Raccoon Leaf.
    Now hit the koopa there on the ledge then right all the way back to the
    door then start running back to the right and take off and fly up and then
    fly to your right when you're offscreen you'll go over the wall.  Now run
    all the way to the right, when you can't move to the right anymore press
    Up you'll be in a room with a chest that contains the 2nd whistle.
    3rd Whistle
    World 2: Koopahari Desert
    Level: Fire Spitting Turtles
    Tips: Get a Hammer from the "Hammer Throwing Turtles then use to break the
    rock on the map in the far upper right.  Then go right and find the turtles
    on the map here.  Use a star power-up on the map.  And go and beat the
    turtles with your invincibilty.  After you beat them a chest will appear run
    up to it and you will get the 3rd and final whistle!
    |                       Unlimited 1-UP Techniques                          |
    |1st Technique: Oscillating Turtle Technique                               |
    |Stages: 3-4, and 3-9                                                      |
    |Tips for 3-4: Hit and grab the turtles shell when you see two of them side|
    |by side and then head to your right until you see and upside down pipe and|
    |2 blocks underneath it, and 2 blocks on either side of the ground.  Kick  |
    |the turtle so it oscillates between the 2 blocks on the ground, after you |
    |head to the right to lure Lakitu and head back.  Stand in the middle of   |
    |the blocks below the pipe.  The spinys will be hit for points and 1-ups.  |
    |Tips for 3-9: When you get to 2 paths a hgiher one and a lower one clear  |
    |out the bottom paths bricks.  Then get a turtle shell and kick in between |
    |the bullet launchers the bullet launchers will launch bullets and the     |
    |shell will hit them for points and eventually 1-ups.                      |
    |2nd Technique: Stomp Technique                                            |
    |Stages: 1-2, and World 2 Fortress                                         |
    |Tip for 1-2: Make sure you are Raccoon Mario before you enter this level  |
    |at the beggining there are 2 pipes on and top of another, they will look  |
    |like a "T" shape.  Wait until 2 goombas come out of the upper pipe on the |
    |right side, hit 1 and press the A button at the same time you hit one.    |
    |Then press A like crazy when you aree starting to descend to slow your    |
    |descent.  And do this over and over again.                                |
    |Tips for World 2 Fortress: Do the same here but wait until you meet 3     |
    |turtles on level ground.  Use the same principal up above.                |
    |3rd Technique: Multiple 1-UP/Coin Stages                                  |

    |up around the top pipe and go up into the water. And then go left and     |
    |enter the pipe at the left end of this pool.  Collect all the 1-ups here  |
    |from the blocks but collect 1 at a time.  Lose a life and do this again.  |
    |Tips for World 7 Fortress: This one is in the fortress with all the blocks|
    |around the entrance screen.  At this screen look for 2 solid blocks to the|
    |left of a block platform go underneath the "L" formation and hit the top  |
    |block in the 4th row to the right of the 2 solid blocks you'll see a      |
    |P-Switch, hit it and all the block will turn into coins drop down into    |
    |them and collect as amny as you can you should have gained at least 2     |
    |extra lives.  When you are at the very bottom floor of this screen go into|
    |the door at the far right.  And enter this door you are inf front of now. |
    |You'll be back in the satrting room, do the process again.                |
