    1) This is an amazing game that should be experienced by all video game
       players; if only to pay respect to the game, the video game character,
       and the company that gave birth to the to the home console boom when the
       market for such things were dying.  So, to all of the PSX and PS2 only
       video game players out there, check this one out, and hail to the grand
       daddy of them all!  Guide Mario and Luigi along the 32 levels to the
       fortress of Bowser, and rescue Princess Toadstool to return peace to the
       Mushroom Kingdom!
    
    ----------------------------------------------------------------------------
    ------------------------------------Story-----------------------------------
    ----------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    2) The following is the official story of the original Super Mario Brothers
       game for NES.  This is taken directly from the Super Mario Brothers
       instruction booklet, so it is a work of the Nintendo corporation, and is
       no way a creation of Brian P. Sulpher.
    
    
    One day, the kingdom of the peaceful Mushroom Kingdom people was invaded by
    the Koopa, a tribe of turtles famous for their black magic.  The quiet,
    peace-loving Mushroom People were turned into mere stones, bricks, and even
    field horsehair plants, and the Mushroom Kingdom fell into ruin.
    
    The only one who can undo the magic spell on the Mushroom People and return
    them to their normal selves is the Princess Toadstool, the daughter of the
    Mushroom King.  Unfortunately, she is presently in the hands of the great
    Koopa turtle king.
    
    Mario, the hero of the story (maybe) hears about the Mushroom People's
    plight and sets out on a quest to free the Mushroom Princess from the evil
    Koopa and restore the fallen kingdom of the Mushroom People.
    
    
    You are Mario!  It's up to you to save the Mushroom People from the black
    magic of the Koopa!
    
    ----------------------------------------------------------------------------
    ----------------------------------Controls----------------------------------
    ----------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    3) This section will review the basic controls of the game.
    
    
    D-Pad...: LEFT and RIGHT will move Mario in the corresponding directions.
              DOWN will cause Mario to duck if he has a Power-Up, and UP has no
              apparent use.
    
    SELECT..: Only used to select between One Player or Two Players.
    
    START...: Confirms choice between One Player or Two Players, and it will
              also pause/unpause the game.
    
    B Button: By holding this down, Mario will run.  If Mario Has Fire Flower
              Power, Mario will throw fireballs with every pressing of the B
              Button (max of two on the screen at a time).
    
    A Button: This Button will allow Mario to leap onto enemies, go over gaps,
              and to make your way past Bowser.  Learning to control Mario
              exactly as he jumps will make your quest a success.  This is also
              how Mario takes a stroke underwater in Worlds 2-2 and 7-2.
    
    ----------------------------------------------------------------------------
    ------------------------------Advanced Moves--------------------------------
    ----------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    4) This section will review the advanced functions of the controller for
       in-game smoothness.
    
    
                                o-----------------o
                                | Coming Up Short |
                                o-----------------o
    
    This is another way to not lose as much time due to a Piranha Plant in your
    way.  What this requires is for Mario to jump onto the edge of the pipe
    that the Piranha Plant is coming out of.  This will allow Mario to either
    jump over the plant in the way, or let it move down before he continues
    forward.
    
    
                                o-----------------o
                                | Crouching Slide |
                                o-----------------o
    
    This is useful for getting underneath/getting through areas that are meant
    for Regular Mario.  By doing this, Mario can gain access to Power-Ups, Gold
    Coins, etc. that he normally could not get to.  It is also useful in a few
    places for saving Mario some time in progressing through the level.
    
    
                                  o-------------o
                                  | Lip Jumping |
                                  o-------------o
    
    This combines the first part of Coming Up Short (landing on the left edge of
    the pipe), with a jump immediately so Mario will clear the Piranha Plant.
    The main problem with this one is that it requires you to jump the exact
    instance you land on the pipe, or you will get hit by the Piranha Plant.
    
    
                            o-----------------------o
                            | Piranha Plant Jumping |
                            o-----------------------o
    
    Piranha Plants have some hit detection problems that can be taken advantage
    of by an aggressive player.  When running at a pipe, and a plant comes out,
    you normally stop to let it go back down into the plant.  However, you can
    actually jump through part of the Plant to keep your momentum going.  With a
    bit of practice, this can become an extremely useful and easy move to do.
    
    
                              o-------------------o
                              | Small Gap Running |
                              o-------------------o
    
    This is pretty simple, but it is quite useful in many places in the game.
    Whenever a gap is one block wide, Mario can run right over them without
    falling through (this is most useful in World 8).  Hold the B Button as you
    move forward, and you will run right over the gaps, but keep in mind that
    you can not jump when over a gap.
    
    
                               o------------------o
                               | Wrap Around Jump |
                               o------------------o
    
    This is a move used to get Mario to jump around a ledge directly above his
    position to land on the same ledge.  The easiest way to do this is to stand
    on the lip of a block that is below the end of the platform you are trying
    to jump to, and then jump up.  Mario will get displaced a little by the
    platform above, and when that happens, just hold the direction to the
    platform to land on it.
    
    ----------------------------------------------------------------------------
    --------------------------------World One-----------------------------------
    ----------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    5) This section will cover levels 1-1 to 1-4.
    
    
                                  o-----------o
                                  | World 1-1 |
                                  o-----------o
    
    Start your journey by running to the right to hit a ? block, kill a Goomba,
    and then hit the three ? blocks (two coins, and one Super Mushroom).  After
    this adventure, head right to go over the pipes and the three Goombas, and
    when you pass the second and third Goombas, go halfway between the pipe and
    the bottomless pit.  Jump up to reveal a hidden block that contains a 1-Up
    Mushroom!  The pipe can also be gone down to a bonus room with multiple
    coins.
    
                         1-Up
                         +--+
    ++----++             |  |

     |    |
     |    |
    -+----+----------------------------+       +----
                                       |       |
                                       |       |
    
    Jump across the gap, hit the bricks above as the two Goombas fall down so
    you can then collect the power-up from the ? block, and then head right over
    the gap.  Kill the two Goombas that approach, hit the brick by itself as it
    is a Coin Block (hit until it turns into a spent block), and then hit the ?
    block for a coin.  Next, you should hit the second brick of two for a
    Starman, collect it, and then run right as you plow through up to eight
    Goombas.
    
    Jump carefully over the one last gap, and then head up the staircase to the
    top, where you should run and jump off at the Flagpole for the top to score
    high (like 5,000 or 2,000 points).
    
    
                                  o-----------o
                                  | World 1-2 |
                                  o-----------o
    
    You go underground, and once you land, destroy the two Goombas coming at you
    before you hit the five ? blocks to get four coins and a Power-Up.  Now head
    across the mini-columns in your way, kill the Goomba in the shallow hole,
    and then hit the Coin Block till it runs out.  Now head right to take on
    two Green Koopa Troopas, get the coins off the brick structure (if you are
    still tall), and then break the three right-most bricks to find a Starman!
    Now run right, duck as you run under the low ledge so you will fit under (or
    bust the bricks above to make a different path), and head right collecting
    coins and killing all the enemies you can until your invincibility runs out.
    A Power-Up is in the tip of a brick structure, so bust the bricks carefully to
    get at it, and then the brick structure that is 2 X 5, hit the second column
    once, and then keep hitting the next block up as it is a Coin Block.
    
    Now get on the higher ledge, jump to the floating platform, and then hit the
    brick above you on the edge of the platform, quickly followed by hitting the one
    to the right of it immediately, so you will fall down to the bottom level as the
    1-Up Mushroom will follow suit.
    
    -----------------------------+

    +--+--+--+--+--+--+--+--+--+--+
    
    Now you face three Goombas, and then three Piranha Plants.  You can go down
    the first pipe to find a treasure trove of coins before you go back up to
    come out of the third pipe in the line.  Now jump the two gaps, kill the
    two Goombas coming down the mini-stairs, and then jump onto the elevator
    coming down.  Jump to the next platform (the far right brick has a Power-Up
    for you if you fight off the Red Koopa Troopa), and then hop onto the next
    elevator going up so you can land on the far ledge to go up the pipe.  Once
    you move up the pipe, go right up the stairs, and launch yourself from the
    top to hit the Flagpole on the higher points of it.
    
    The other option is to ride the elevator to near the top of the screen, hop
    onto the roof of the level, and then run right till you fall down into a
    Warp Zone!  You can warp to Worlds 2, 3, or 4 if you go this route!  The
    following will make it clearer in picture form:

                                  | World 1-3 |
                                  o-----------o
    
    Head right to kill a Red Koopa Troopa and two Goombas as you collect various
    coins on the unlevel platforms (careful not to fall off the cliffs).  Jump
    down to the low platform (collect the two coins on the fall), jump across
    the gap using the elevator, and hit the ? block to find a Power-Up.
    
    Then you should take the aforementioned elevator up to the top ledge for four
    coins, and then jump the gap that the Red Paratroopa Koopa patrols (look out
    for the Goomba on the far ledge).  Now you need to use the horizontally
    moving ledge, and jump from it to the next moving horizontally moving ledge,
    and then onto the next platform.
    
    Take out the Red Koopa, the Red Paratroopa Koopa, and then collect the coins
    before you jump across the horizontally moving ledge to reach the stairs.
    Now jump off the top to hit the Flagpole high up for a lot of points!  Now
    you are entering your first fortress, so be ready!
    
    
                                  o-----------o
                                  | World 1-4 |
                                  o-----------o
    
    Jump the lava pit, go right, jump the lava pit (jump to the platform when
    the Fire Bar is just starting to pass 9 O'Clock), hit the ? block for a
    Power-Up, and then jump to the next ledge.  Now walk right carefully so the
    Fire Bars will not hit you, and then when the hall opens a bit, jump the
    Fire Bars when they are pointed to 12 O'Clock (this allows you to clear the
    Fire Bars without worry of it swinging around to get you), and then hop the
    flames that flies at you (this is a BOWSER ATTACK!).
    
    Now you are in a depression in the floor where the flames from Bowser fly
    overhead, jump up in the air to find invisible blocks that yield one coin each
    if you hit them.  They are arranged as follows:
    
    -------------------------------------+
    Key                                  |
                                         |
    1,2,3,4,5,6 - order of brick hitting |
                                         |
    -------------------------------------+

      |                                |
      +--------------------------------+
    
    now you will have one more safe spot from Bowser's flames, and then you step
    onto his bridge to fight him.  If you have Fire Flower Power, shoot
    fireballs till the Koopa King is dead for 5,000 points (it is a fake), or if
    you are Fireless, then you should run forward to jump Bowser OR run underneath
    him when he jumps to pull the Axe Switch to send the bridge supports falling
    away (incidentally carrying Bowser to burn in the lava below!).
    Congratulations on finishing World One!

    6) This section will cover levels 2-1 to 2-4.
    
    
                                  o-----------o
                                  | World 2-1 |
                                  o-----------o
    
    Start the level by going right to punch the middle brick of the three brick
    set to get a Power-Up, and then squish the Goomba before you go up the
    mini-stairs.  Now jump down where you should hit one of the Green Koopa
    Troopas, but do NOT kick the shell.  Now you should jump up and hit an
    invisible block which is found below and to the left of where the brick line
    is in the sky, and then get onto the block to jump straight up to hit the
    invisible 1-Up block.  The following will give you an idea of what I mean:

    +--+-------------------------+--+
    
    After that, head right two face two Goombas, and then jump the pipe to land
    where a Green Koopa Troopa waits.  After dealing with him, you have to get
    rid of two Goombas, and then you should bust up the ten ? blocks for a
    Power-Up and nine coins.  Then you face three Goombas, jump up on the first
    brick you come across in the air, and hit the brick that is just to your
    up-right to release a Starman.  Now collect it, hit the seven ? blocks as you
    kill the three Goombas, and then hit the third of five bricks above to make a
    beanstalk appear!  Climb the beanstalk to go to Coin Heaven!

    -----------------------------------
    
    Coin Heaven has a white platform for you to get on, and you will jump up to
    get the coins in the air, and when the platform is about to run out, get off
    the cloud so you can take running leap at the three coins left in the air
    before falling back to the regular level.  When you land, hit the Coin Block
    to your left, and then hit the ? block for a coin before dealing with the
    Piranha Plant and the Green Koopa Troopa.  Now use the Springboard or the
    invisible block above the bricks to get to the top of the wall, where you
    will run and jump to reach the top of the Flagpole.
    
    
                                  o-----------o
                                  | World 2-2 |
                                  o-----------o
    
    This is an underwater level, so you will press the A Button to swim, and B
    Button to throw fireballs (if you have Fire Flower Power).
    
    You will start by swimming right to get three coins on the bottom, go past a
    Blooper, go over the seaweed, and then get the three coins on the bottom.
    Next you face a Blooper, swim over the seaweed, go past another Blooper, and
    then swim over the suction of the pit below (go into it for coins if you
    like).
    
    Now Cheep-Cheeps will start coming at random locations on the screen for the
    rest of the level, so be wary.  Three Bloopers will quickly appear, so stay
    on the bottom so they come to you, and then walk under them before swimming
    away from them.  Now you will see another suction from the pit below (again
    the coins are optional pick-ups).
    
    Continuing right will take you over yet another suction pit with coins inside
    of it (collect if you dare), and then swim across the top of the water to
    avoid the fish.  Then you should drop down to go through the pipe to find
    yourself at the staircase, so climb up and leap off at the Flagpole to finish
    the level.
    
    
                                  o-----------o
                                  | World 2-3 |
                                  o-----------o
    
    This level has enemies that are only flying Cheep-Cheeps.  Each paragraph
    will represent each bridge you are crossing, and in some cases, the small
    ledges grouped together.
    
    Bridge #1 is fairly long run with nine total coins on it, and then hop the
    gap.
    
    Bridge #2 is a very short section with four coins on it before you hop to
    the next bridge.
    
    Bridge #3 is short and leads to a leap to Bridge #4 where you can get the
    lone Power-Up on it in a ? block.  Leap down to the green platform before
    hopping to the Bridge #5.
    
    Bridge #5 has some coins, and it leads to an empty Bridge #6 before you leap
    to Bridge #7.
    
    Bridge #7 leads to three small platforms before depositing you onto Bridge
    #8.
    
    Bridge #8 is the end of the attacks, so run to jump the gap, climb the
    stairs, and then take a running leap at the Flagpole.
    
    
                                  o-----------o
                                  | World 2-4 |
                                  o-----------o
    
    Begin by running right to jump across the two platforms (be sure to miss the
    Podoboo flying from the lava), get the Power-Up from the ? block, and then
    finish the remaining two leaps over the lava (again avoiding the Podoboos).
    
    Go along the bottom route slowly so you can avoid the Fire Bars here, and
    then hop up to the next ledge when the Fire Bar there is at 2 O'Clock.  Leap
    onto the Donkey Kong-like elevators here and get across the pit to find six
    coins.
    
    Now you need to jump across the two lava pits while dodging the Bowser
    flames, and then go past the two pits where you can hide from the flames to
    find a brick walkway above (bust a couple to get up there if you are big).
    Then you just need to run across to get to the Axe Switch, or you can use
    the Fire Flower Power method to wipe Bowser out (once again it is a fake).
    Congratulations on finishing World Two!

    7) This section will cover levels 3-1 to 3-4.
    
    
                                  o-----------o
                                  | World 3-1 |
                                  o-----------o
    
    You head right from the Fortress to hit two ? blocks before you tangle with
    two Green Paratroopa Koopas (you can also avoid them by going on top of the
    spent ? blocks).  The next ? block contains a Power-Up, and then you will
    continue right past the bricks, past the first Piranha Plant to find a
    Goomba (smash it good).  Go down the next pipe to enter a Bonus Room, and
    once you finish up in there (there is s a Power-Up on the left side of the
    brick structure), you will go onto a bridge.
    
    Kill the three Goombas, and then go about three quarters of the way across
    the bridge to where you will jump up to hit an Invisible Block with a 1-Up
    inside!
    
                         1-Up

    +--+                       +--+
    
    Now jump the gap, and then jump off of the two block high stack at the
    left-most brick to release a Starman.  Carefully collect it as you
    kill/avoid two Goombas and a Green Koopa Troopa, and then go past the
    Piranha Plant to find the first Hammer Brother set of the game (just run
    through them as you are invincible).  Now use the Springboard to get on top
    of the bricks high in the sky, and then go down to tangle with two Goombas.
    Now you should get right next to the steps, hold the B Button, and then run
    left, followed by a jump for the lower brick platform.  Then you should hit
    the right-most brick above you to reveal a Vine to go to Coin Heaven!

    When you fall back to the regular level, go under the brick platform, and
    start punching the second brick (going from the left) to find a Coin Block!
    Now jump over the gap, and you have arrived at the first place in the game
    that you can gain multiple lives!  Kill the first Green Koopa Troopa, wait
    for the second one to start his step to the stair above yours, and then jump
    straight up to retreat the Koopa Troopa into it's shell.  If done correctly,
    you will start to bounce repeatedly on the shell to more and more points
    before long 1-Ups start tot total up!  You will have to start the jumping
    chain over on occasion, but you can gain many lives here (do not gain too
    many lives, as it will end your game: see the 1-Up Methods section for
    diagrams on this trick as well as info on too many lives).
    
    When you have had your run at extra Marios, go up the stairs, to where you
    launch yourself off to get a high total on the Flagpole!

                                  o-----------o
    
    Start this level by hopping on the first Green Koopa Troopa you see, kick
    the shell, and then follow it to get a 1-Up for plowing through all the
    enemies on the path (be sure to jump the rebounding shell).  Now you should
    collect the three Gold Coins, hit the ? block to release a Power-Up, and
    then collect it as you/before you fight a Green Koopa Troopa and three
    Goombas.  If you have Fire Flower Power, roast the Green Koopa Troopa before
    you go to hit the Coin Block.  If you do not have the fireballs to use, go
    hit the top brick to get a Starman, kill the Green Koopa Troopa, and then
    hit the Coin Block.
    
    Now head right to fight a Green Paratroopa Koopa, a Green Koopa, and then
    three Goombas before you hit a gap.  Jump the gap, jump the next gap, and
    then stomp the Green Koopa Troopa so you can kick the shell.  Follow the
    shell as it heads right to plow through enemies till you gain another 1-Up!
    Now head over the Piranha Plant pipe, stomp the Green Koopa, kick the shell
    to follow it as it reaches 5000 points before the shell rebounds off the
    barrier.  Now you should climb the staircase, take a running leap from the
    top, and then you will land on the Flagpole to get yourself a nice and high
    bonus score!

    Start by running right, jump up two ledges to fight a Goomba, and then use
    the moving platform to reach the next ledge.  Now head right as you get a
    few of the scattered Gold Coins, kill the two Red Koopa Troopas as you get
    some more Gold Coins and a Power-Up, and then hop off the high ledge to a
    sinking platform )+(jump to the right immediately to the waiting ledge).
    
    Run across the holes as you get some coins, jump to the next ledge, and then
    make use of the pulley ledges (these will sink on your end, rise on the
    other) to get onto the next set of moving platforms.  Now that you have got
    to a solid ledge, jump across the gap to the next ledge where you find three
    waiting Gold Coins, and then jump the gap that is guarded be a Red
    Paratroopa Koopa.  The next ledge up has two Red Koopa Troopas patrolling
    it, and then use the next moving platform to get onto to another pulley
    ledge set.  Draw the left side down so you can hop to the right ledge as it
    rises.  Now you should take a running leap before the ledge sinks down to
    far so you can hit high on the Flagpole.
    
    
                                  o-----------o
                                  | World 3-4 |
                                  o-----------o
    
    Start off by running right to jump across three lava pits, but you have
    Podoboos flying out of each lava pit as well as Firebars on each platform
    (the best way to go is to jump across quickly).  Now you come across three
    ? blocks, and the middle one has a Power-Up for you.  Once you collect the
    Power-Up, jump the lava pit, then hop through the first two Firebars
    (the bottom ones) when they are at a 3 O'Clock position, and then hop though
    the last Firebar set when the bottom one is at 7 O'Clock position.
    
    Now hop the lava pit, at which point Bowser starts his flame barrage, and
    then you enter a room where three lava pits are found, each one with a
    Podoboo inside.  You should carefully jump from one platform to the next
    when the Podoboo ahead of you is heading down into the lava and when the
    Bowser flames are not blocking your jump.
    
    Now head for the bunker in the pathway, and then head out again when no
    flames are coming.  Run right to find Bowser and his bridge as usual, and
    you should use fireballs (if you got them).  Otherwise, wait for Bowser to
    make a jump, and then cut underneath him, or jump him as he is landing
    from his jump.  Pull the Axe Switch to send him into his lava bath!
    Congratulations on finishing World Three!

    8) This section will cover levels 4-1 to 4-4.
    
    
                                  o-----------o
                                  | World 4-1 |
                                  o-----------o
    
    This level is your introduction to the fun that is Lakitu.  The best way to
    do this level is to rush your way through, or to kill Lakitu at every
    opportunity (high ledges).  This guide will list the latter, but running
    through is the suggested method.
    
    Start off by going right, jumping the Piranha Plant, and get the Power-Up
    from the ? block.  Now Lakitu should be raining Spinies down to accost you,
    so take this opportunity to jump on top of the higher ? block so you can
    kill Lakitu.  Now run right to jump a gap, grab the four Gold Coins, punch
    the next four ? blocks, and then kill a Lakitu again when he shows up.
    
    Now head right to jump a gap, and then you will find four ? blocks in the
    air.  Go on top of the blocks, stand on the third one (from the left), and
    then jump straight up to find an Invisible Block with a 1-Up inside!
    
                   1-Up

             |? |? |? |? |
             +--+--+--+--+
    
    Head right as Lakitu returns to annoy you, jump the Piranha Plant pipe,
    collect the coins, and then go down the next pipe to enter a Bonus Room.
    After you exit, head right to jump three gaps (during the third one, Lakitu
    returns again), and then run right at full speed so Lakitu can not catch up
    to you (he will turn around when you reach the end of level staircase),
    Climb the staircase, fall down to hit the Coin Block, and then hop back on
    top of the staircase to jump for the high end of the Flagpole.
    
    
                                  o-----------o
                                  | World 4-2 |
                                  o-----------o
    
    Upon entering this level, you are immediately faced with some tough terrain
    to jump on.  The easiest way to clear it is to start with a big run, half
    jump (tap the A Button) to land on the wider ledge, and then do a full jump
    to clear the rest of the pit.  Go into the mini-bunker to get a Power-Up and
    some Gold Coins before you head right down the hall to tangle with three
    Goombas in the enclosed space (try to bounce your way across all three at
    once, or just fireball them).  The fifth from the right column of bricks has
    a Coin Block inside of it.

    Warp Zone route will be shown first, and then the guide will revert to the
    same spot to continue the guide.

    Warp Zone #2!  Choose your World that is your destination, and then head on
    to the next challenge!
    
    Now that you have seen and read how to do this Warp, we revert to the same
    starting point to continue on.  Grab the Power-Up from the ? block second
    from the right of the elevator pit.  Now go across the elevator, go past the
    Piranha Plant, go for the Coin Block beside the pipe (if you can handle the
    Green Koopa Troopa), and then jump over the tall Piranha Plant pipe to try
    and get the Starman from the right-most brick where the Buzzy Beetle is
    patrolling.  Now head left over the pipes, past Buzzy Beetles, the Green
    Koopa Troopas, and then hop over the gaps to reach an elevator.  Hop onto
    the second ledge of the middle part between elevators, and hit the middle
    brick for a Power-Up.  Now you have a choice, ride the elevator up to the
    top so you can get on the ceiling to make a run for the Warp Zone to World
    5, or continue on through the level (this walkthrough will finish the
    level).
    
    Once you get by the elevator, three Piranha Plants and a Green Koopa Troopa
    are waiting on this ledge, so jump the platform to face a Buzzy Beetle
    before you hop on an elevator moving downwards.  Hop off to punch the first
    brick in the long horizontal row of them to reveal a Power-Up, and then
    hop over the two Green Koopa Troopas to get the Super Mushroom (or bust the
    bricks before the Koopa Troopas get to you so you can just roast them with
    Fire Flower Power).  Head up the mini-stairs, hop to the tall Piranha Plant
    pipe, fall down to the low ledge, and then hop to the higher ledge to take
    the pipe out of the underground.  Go up the staircase to launch yourself
    off the top to reach the upper reaches of the Flagpole.

    Go right to see that this is a multi-platformed level.  Jump up to the next
    ledge where two Red Koopa Troopas guard many Gold Coins, and then hop to the
    next high ledge on your right .  Hop the Red Paratroopa Koopa, get the
    Power-Up from the ? block, and then go down to the bottom ledge where the
    Red Koopa Troopa guards some coins.  Head right once more to play on a
    pulley ledge, and use that to get to the moving vertical platform set.
    
    Once you get across that set, wait for the second platform in the set to go
    high before you vacate it so you can get some coins, and then kill the Red
    Koopa Troopa on the next platform.  Now you have to go across three pulley
    ledges, so do the following maneuvers: stay on the left ledge till the right
    starts to rise, and do this two more times for the second and third pulley
    ledges in the set.  You will land on a platform with five Gold Coins, and
    then head left across the remaining platforms to reach a vertically moving
    ledge, which you will take a running leap off of when it is at it's highest
    point so you land on the higher part of the Flagpole.

    This Fortress is the first of three castles that requires Mario to go
    through the castle on a certain path because it is a maze.  If the wrong
    path is taken, you will have to repeat the area you just attempted.
    
    The castle starts off by giving two lava pits to be jumped, followed up by a
    choice between the high road or the low road.  Take the high path, and make
    sure to run as you head right so you will go over the gaps in the floor (the
    Firebar will not hit you, so do not worry).
    
    Now when you get to the next section of the maze, go up the small, rising
    platforms, and when you reach the first hole in the top floor, go through
    it, and then go through the hole on your left to reach the bottom floor.
    Now run right to finish off this section of the maze, and Bowser will choose
    this moment to start trying to barbeque you (be wary of the Firebar as you
    go right).
    
    Continue right past the bunker in the floor to reach the Bowser bridge where
    Bowser has both a Firebar and a Podoboo to help defend him.  Shoot with
    fireballs form a safe distance (behind the Firebar), or carefully jump the
    Firebar, get by the Podoboo, and then go under/over Bowser if you are
    Regular/Super Mario.  Grab the Axe Switch to send Bowser falling into the
    lava, and then head over to find Toad once more!  Congratulation on
    finishing World 4!

    Stomp the Green Koopa Troopa at the start, kick the shell, and then follow
    it to kill nine enemies for a lot of points as well as a 1-Up (be sure to
    hop the rebounding shell)!  Jump the Piranha Plant pipe, jump the gap to the
    next pipe when the Piranha Plant is going down into the pipe, and then take
    the Green Paratroopa Koopa down to it's shell so you can kick it to clear
    enemies out of your way (up to the 8000 point spot in the chain).  Now hit
    the middle brick of the three to receive a Starman, ad then run right
    through three Goombas, past the Bullet Bill cannon, over the gap through
    three Goombas, a Green Koopa Troopa, three Goombas, and then two Green Koopa
    Troopas.  Now you should jump the wall, and then try to jump back through
    the small hole to reveal an Invisible Block hiding a 1-Up!

    After collecting the 1-Up, take a running leap to the floating pipe when the
    Piranha Plant is starting to return to the inside of the pipe.  When you
    land on the pipe, go down inside of it to find a Bonus Room.  When you
    return to the level, go past the Bullet Bill cannon, and then tangle with
    two Green Paratroopa Koopas before heading up the broken stairs (make sure
    to hop over to the far side if the staircase).  Take a running leap off of
    the staircase top to reach the Flagpole top.
    
    If you are extremely good, you can make one of the Green Paratroopa Koopas
    into a Green Koopa on the stairs, where you can do the 1-Up trick on the
    stairs.  This is extremely hard to do, but it is possible on this staircase
    to do so.
    
    
                                  o-----------o

                                  o-----------o
    
    Go up the stairs to find a Bullet Bill cannon, which you will jump to land
    on a lower edge.  Here you will find a Springboard, which you should use to
    get onto the high brick ledge.  Now go to the end of the brick ledge, drop
    down to the lower brick ledge, and hit the right-most brick to gain a
    Power-Up.  Move to the right to see a solo Hammer Brother guarding the
    stairwell, and he leaves you two choices: one is to kamikaze charge at him
    in hope of jumping between the hammers for a lucky kill, or back off onto
    the high brick ledge to wait for the Hammer Brother to charge at you.  I
    suggest that you wait, and when he finally charges, take a running leap past
    him, and then go down the first pipe you come across.
    
    Now I know this is the weird room to go to (it is the underwater room with
    enemies), but once you get through, you will see why.  Anyway, head right
    past the first Blooper, swim through the suction elevator while dodging the
    now appearing Cheep-Cheeps, and then avoid the Bloopers and Cheep-Cheeps as
    you collect some coins on the way to the exit pipe.  When you reappear, a
    place where you would have to fight a pair of Hammer Brothers has been
    stripped of them (you actually get to avoid three total Hammer Brothers this
    way!).  Now get onto the lower brick ledge, go to the very end on the right,
    and then jump up to reveal a Starman.  Collect the Starman as you hop across
    the gap, and then head right as you plow through three Buzzy Beetles.  Now
    you should use the Crouching Slide (if you are Super or Fiery Mario) to get
    under the first low brick to hit a Coin Block dry.  Then get the one beside
    it for a Power-Up.
    
    Jump up the brick ledges to face a Red Koopa Troopa, then drop down to kill
    two Green Paratroopa Koopas before you use the lone brick to reach the high
    brick ledge.  Then you should hop down to the ground, kill the Green
    Paratroopa Koopa, and then carefully hop up the broken staircase to the top
    where you can launch yourself with wild abandon for the higher portions of
    the Flagpole.
    
    
                                  o-----------o
                                  | World 5-3 |
                                  o-----------o
    
    This is the first repeat level you will face in the game.  This level is
    extremely similar to level 1-3, but this one has Bullet Bills firing across
    the screen continually, and the moving ledges are smaller in size.
    
    Head right to kill a Red Koopa Troopa and two Goombas as you collect various
    coins on the unlevel platforms (careful not to fall off the cliffs).  Jump
    down to the low platform (collect the two coins on the fall), jump across
    the gap using the elevator, and hit the ? block to find a Power-Up.
    
    Then you should take the aforementioned elevator up to the top ledge for four
    coins, and then jump the gap that the Red Paratroopa Koopa patrols (look out
    for the Goomba on the far ledge).  Now you need to use the horizontally
    moving ledge, and jump from it to the next moving horizontally moving ledge,
    and then onto the next platform.  Take out the Red Koopa, the Red Paratroopa
    Koopa, and then collect the coins before you jump across the horizontally
    moving ledge to reach the stairs.  Now jump off the top to hit the Flagpole
    high up for a lot of points!

    This fortress is the first repeat castle you will encounter.  It is
    extremely similar to level 2-4, but it has more Firebars, Podoboos, as well
    as the lone huge Firebar in the game!
    
    Begin by running right to jump across the two platforms (be sure to miss the
    Podoboo flying from the lava), hit the Power-Up ? block, and then get on top
    of it so you can hop the approaching huge Firebar.  Then you should hop down
    across the last platform while avoiding the Podoboos to arrive at the next
    section.
    
    Go along the bottom route slowly so you can avoid the Fire Bars here, and
    then hop up to the next ledge when the Fire Bar there is at 2 O'Clock.  Leap
    onto the Donkey Kong-like elevators here and get across the pit while
    avoiding the Firebar guarding the ledge (try to jump when the Firebar is at
    3 O'Clock).  Then you can risk going after the six Gold Coins if you like
    to duel with a Firebar for them.  The Bowser flames start at this point as
    well!
    
    Now you need to jump across the two lava pits while dodging the Bowser
    flames, and then go past the two pits where you can hide from the flames to
    find a brick walkway above (bust a couple to get up there if you are Super
    Mario).  Then you just need to run across to get to the Axe Switch, or you
    can use the Fire Flower Power method to wipe Bowser out (once again it is a
    fake).  Congratulations on finishing World Five!

    Head off to the right, hit the two ? blocks, jump the gap, and you run into
    Spiny courtesy of good old Lakitu!  Now hit the left-most brick at the top
    to get the Power-Up contained within, and then head left to jump another
    gap.  Grab the coins, head up the stairs, jump the gap, and then go up to
    the top of the next stairs where you can kill Lakitu.  Now go down to the
    lower brick ledge, head left onto the ground, get tight to the stairs, and
    then jump up to reveal an Invisible Block that contains a 1-Up!

    Now you will head right over a Piranha Plant pipe, up the mini-stairs, hit
    the two blocks to reveal a Power-Up in the right one, and by this point,
    Lakitu should have reappeared.  Now head right up the next stairs, kill
    Lakitu if you wish to (easiest with fireballs), and then you can go after
    the Coin Block in the bricks below your ledge.  You can just walk in to hit
    the Coin Block if you are Regular Mario, but if you are Super/Fiery Mario you
    need to use a Crouching Slide running from the left of the lowest brick ledge
    to get under the Coin Block.

    Now head right over the gap, up the first part of the stairs, jump the big
    gap in the stairs, and then take a running leap off the top of the stairs to
    get a good score on the Flagpole.
    
    
                                  o-----------o

    Go right to go over a Piranha Plant pipe, kill the Green Koopa Troopa with
    fireballs (or retreat the Koopa Troops into the shell on the side of the
    screen near the pipe without kicking the shell).  Now jump up when you are
    directly below the middle brick of the high brick line to reveal an
    Invisible Block, and then jump straight up off of said block to start
    punching away on a Coin Block!  Head right past the many Piranha Plant pipes
    while fighting a Green Paratroopa Koopa, and then stomp a Buzzy Beetle so it
    retreats into it's shell without kicking the shell.  Now punch the second
    brick between the two pipes for a Power-Up.
    
    Now take a leap to the Piranha Plant pipe, and go down to enter a hidden
    water area!  Head right past the first Blooper, swim through the suction
    elevator while dodging the now appearing Cheep-Cheeps, and then avoid the
    Bloopers and Cheep-Cheeps as you collect some coins on the way to the exit
    pipe.  When you reappear, jump onto the brick on your left, and then hop up
    to the next highest brick, followed by a leap to the long brick row high in
    the air.  Going right will bring you to a drop to two Piranha Plant pipes,
    and after that, jump to the first brick ledge you see another brick ledge
    just to your right.  Now punch the first brick above you to reveal a
    Starman, which you should grab and head right through the Piranha Plants,
    Goombas, and other enemies.
    
    Once you reach the stairs, you can dewing the Green Paratroopa Koopa, stomp
    the Green Koopa Troopa, and then start the 1-Up bounce technique if you are
    fast enough at it.  Anyway, once that is done, head up the staircase to the
    top, and hurl yourself forcefully from the top to hit the Flagpole for a lot
    of points!
    
    
                                  o-----------o

    This is a platform and ledge jumping bonanza level, along with Bullet Bill
    starting to shoot through at the halfway point.  I will do my best to
    describe each part, but this is a level that requires the player to do most
    of the work themselves through skill and practice.
    
    Run right, jump up the platforms, and then jump on to the vertically ledge.
    Grab the two coins at the top of the ledge area, jump right to the platform,
    and then use the springboard on the right to get up to the two horizontally
    moving ledges.  After you get across to the third ledge, hit the ? block to
    reveal a Power-Up.
    
    Jump to the vertically moving ledge, then jump to the platform on the right,
    and then make use of the two pulley ledges (do this by lowering the left
    side so you can hop off the raised right ledge).  This will get you onto a
    high platform with some coins on it, and following that, the Bullet Bills
    start as you head right across some platforms till you reach a Springboard.
    Use the Springboard to jump up to the horizontally moving ledge, jump to the
    pulley ledge, jump to the platforms on the right, and then quickly hop
    across the sinking ledged over the pit (be sure to hop forward swiftly so
    you do not sink too far down).  Now take a running leap from the platform to
    reach the Flagpole's higher echelons!
    
    
                                  o-----------o
                                  | World 6-4 |
                                  o-----------o
    
    Jump the lava pit, go right under the Firebar, jump the lava pit (jump to the
    platform when the Fire Bar is just starting to pass 9 O'Clock), hit the ?
    block for a Power-Up, and then jump to the next ledge.  Now walk right
    carefully so the Fire Bars will not hit you, and then when the hall opens a
    bit, jump the Fire Bars when they are pointed to 12 O'Clock (this allows you
    to clear the Fire Bars without worry of it swinging around to get you), and
    then hop the flames that flies at you (this is a BOWSER ATTACK!).
    
    Now you are in a depression in the floor where the flames from Bowser fly
    overhead, jump up in the air to find invisible blocks that yield one coin
    each if you hit them.  They are arranged as follows:
    
    -------------------------------------+
    Key                                  |
                                         |
    1,2,3,4,5,6 - order of brick hitting |
                                         |

              +--+      +--+      +--+
    
    
    
    
           +--+      +--+      +--+

           +--+      +--+      +--+
    --+                                +--
      |                                |
      |                                |
      |                                |
      +--------------------------------+
    
    now you will have one more safe spot from Bowser's flames, and then you step
    onto his bridge to fight him.  If you have Fire Flower Power, shoot
    fireballs till the Koopa King is dead for 5,000 points (this allows Mario to
    not have to pass the Podoboo or avoid the thrown hammers of Bowser), or if
    you are Fireless, then you should run forward past the Podoboo to run
    underneath Bowser when he jumps during his hammer throwing frenzy.  Pull
    the Axe Switch to send the bridge supports falling away (incidentally
    carrying Bowser to burn in the lava below!).  Congratulations on finishing
    World Six!

    11)This section will cover levels 7-1 to 7-4.

                                  | World 7-1 |
                                  o-----------o
    
    Start off by heading right to find a Bullet Bill Cannon, a Green Paratroopa
    Koopa, and then a duel Bullet Bill cannon (from this point on, they can be
    stacked on top of one another).  After getting on top of the first stacked
    cannon, hit the left brick to reveal a Power-Up, collect it, and then head
    right past another Bullet Bill cannon to fight yet another Green Paratroopa
    Koopa.
    
    Hit the four ? blocks for coins if you like, jump the tall Bullet Bill
    cannon, and then fight a Green Paratroopa Koopa before hopping on top of the
    dual Bullet Bill cannon.  Next you will go past the approaching Green
    Paratroopa Koopa, go underneath the Bullet Bill cannon on the bricks, and
    punch the Coin Block in the third brick from the left while avoiding more
    Bullet Bills from a cannon on the right.
    
    Jump the gap, go over the Piranha Plant pipe, and you will have to
    fight/flee two Hammer Brothers.  The next pipe after that pair takes you to
    a Bonus Room (jump up to find the hidden 1-Up Mushroom if it generated for 
    you), and when you return to the level, you face a Bullet Bill cannon.  Now
    cross over the Piranha Plant pipe to face another pair of Hammer Brothers 
    (fight or flee as you see fit).
    
    Jump the dual Bullet Bill cannon, use the Springboard to reveal a Power-Up,
    collect the Power-Up, and then head right over the first set of mini-stairs
    to the second set where you can perform the bouncing shell trick for lots of
    points and 1-Ups (on the approaching Buzzy Beetle).  Now head up to the top
    of the stairs where you will leap to the high end of the Flagpole.
    
    
                                  o-----------o
                                  | World 7-2 |
                                  o-----------o
    
    This level is very similar to level 2-2 except that there are more
    Bloopers, Red Cheep-Cheeps are much more common, and Green Cheep-Cheeps do
    not appear as often.  The coin total is down a little from the totals found
    in 2-2.
    
    You will start by swimming right to get three coins on the bottom, go past a
    Blooper, go over the seaweed, and then get the three coins on the bottom.
    Next you face a Blooper, swim over the seaweed, go past another Blooper, and
    then swim over the suction of the pit below (go into it for coins if you
    like).
    
    Now Cheep-Cheeps will start coming at random locations on the screen for the
    rest of the level, so be wary.  Three Bloopers will quickly appear, so stay
    on the bottom so they come to you, and then walk under them before swimming
    away from them.  Now you will see another suction from the pit below (again
    the coins are optional pick-ups).
    
    Continuing right will take you over yet another suction pit with coins
    inside of it (collect if you dare), and then swim across the top of the
    water to avoid the fish.  Then you should drop down to go through the pipe
    to find yourself at the staircase, so climb up and leap off at the Flagpole
    to finish the level.
    
    
                                  o-----------o
                                  | World 7-3 |
                                  o-----------o
    
    This level is similar to level 2-3, but with a few key differences.  More
    Red Cheep-Cheeps in the air at one time, Red Koopas are added, Green Koopas
    are added, Red Paratroopa Koopas are added, and Green Paratroopa Koopas are
    added. The walkthrough will still be divided by bridges, and they will have
    the same numbering system, and Red Cheep-Cheeps will by flying throughout
    the level.
    
    Bridge #1 is fairly long run with nine total coins on it, but you need to
    watch out for a Green Koopa Troopa , followed by a Green Paratroopa Koopa
    before you hop the gap.
    
    Bridge #2 is a very short section with four coins on it as well as a Red
    Koopa Troopa before you get to hop to the next bridge.
    
    Bridge #3 is short with a Red Koopa Troopa on it.  The gap jump leads to
    Bridge #4 where you can get the lone Power-Up on it from a ? block.  Leap
    down to the green platform where a Red Koopa Troopa attacks before you can
    hop to Bridge #5.
    
    Bridge #5 has some coins as well as the first Green Paratroopa Koopa in the
    game that is able to have sustained airbourne flight (as opposed to the
    regular behaviour of bouncing along), and it leads to Bridge #6 where you
    find another evolutionary advanced Green Paratroopa Koopa guarding some
    coins.  When you finish on this bridge, jump on over to Bridge #7.
    
    Bridge #7 leads to three small platform hops before depositing you onto
    Bridge #8.
    
    Bridge #8 is the end of the attacks, so run to jump the gap, climb the
    stairs, and then take a running leap at the Flagpole.
    
    
                                  o-----------o

                                  o-----------o
    
    This fortress is the second maze fortress you will encounter.  If you are
    getting a repeat section of the castle, carefully go through each
    permutation of a path (or just use my guide).
    
    Head right to jump across to a sinking vertical ledge, and then you should
    jump across to the next sinking vertical ledge before hopping to the solid
    ground on the right (be sure to avoid the Podoboo that inhabits the lava pit
    here).
    
    Now take the bottom route, jump up to the next ledge you come to, and then
    jump up to the next ledge as the one you are on runs out to get to the next
    section of the castle.
    
    Take a running leap to hit the high ledge the Firebar guards (just run and
    jump as the Firebar will not hit you), and then drop to the floor first
    chance you get.  Now you should jump onto the next ledge immediately, and
    then you should head right until you see a high path and the low path (take
    the high path to advance).
    
    Now you will see Bowser's flames start to come at you, so make your way past
    the five bunkers in the floor to find the bridge.  Now, go onto the bridge
    to see a Podoboo guarding the King of the Koopas, and shoot fireballs till
    Bowser dies (yet another doppelganger).  Otherwise, you should get in close
    underneath the arc of the thrown hammers, and run underneath the big bad
    Koopa King to grab the Axe Switch and finish the level!  Congratulations on
    finishing World 7!  Only one more World to go!

    12)This section will cover levels 8-1 to 8-4.  This section of the game
       features two very unpleasant obstacles to what are already incredibly
       tough levels: 300 second timers (as opposed to the usual 400), as well as
       no midway point to continue from if you die in a level (dying at the
       staircase means going back to the start to fight through the whole level
       again).  GOOD LUCK!

    Start off my stomping the Buzzy Beetle, kicking his shell, and then
    following till the points hit 2000 in the chain before you jump the
    rebounding shell.  Go past the Piranha Plant pipe, deal with the two Green
    Koopa Troopas, run across the small gaps, jump from the bigger land section
    to clear a Green Koopa Troopa, and then take on three Goombas in a row.
    
    Jump the Piranha Plant pipe, stomp the Buzzy Beetle below when it is beside
    a pipe, do NOT kick the shell, but rather jump up near the middle of the
    ground between the two pipes to find an Invisible Block that contains a
    1-Up!

    Now head right as you go past numerous Piranha Plant pipes, Goombas, and
    then five Green Koopa Troopas before arriving at another Piranha Plant pipe.
    Now head past it, fight the three Goombas, and then go over the small wall
    to where you will disable a Green Paratroopa Koopa (down to it inside it's
    shell).  then hit the Invisible Block, and then get on it to hit a Coin
    Block.

    Following this, head right to find two Green Paratroopa Koopas hopping
    toward you, and if any make it across the gaps, knock them down to their
    shells before you kick them away.  Now you will run across the small gaps,
    hit the third brick from the left to find a Starman, and then continue right
    at top speed to go through two Green Koopa Troopas, jump a gap, three
    Goombas, up three Piranha Plant pipes (gaps between them), and then through
    an assortment of Goombas and Buzzy Beetles.
    
    Once you have gone over the stairs, you need to run and jump across a gap to
    a two space wide platform before jumping again to the far side.  Now hop the
    trapped Green Koopa Troopa, running full speed towards the next gap, where
    there are two ways to do this hard section.  The first is the more
    preferred method of running, jumping, and jumping immediately upon landing on
    the one square wide platform to jump again for the far side.  The other
    option is to take a running leap, but slow Mario in his descent so you can
    stop on the platform before lining up on the left edged of the platform to
    make the next jump across.
    
    Now you have crossed, so jump the four Green Koopa Troopas, the two Piranha
    Plant pipes, and then climb the hole-riddled stairs to the top, where you
    can jump for the 5000 point section on the Flagpole.
    
    
                                  o-----------o
                                  | World 8-2 |
                                  o-----------o
    
    You get a big welcoming party to start 8-2.  Two Green Paratroopa Koopas as
    well as Lakitu with his pet Spinies will attack you as you climb a
    staircase.  Upon getting over the staircase, hit the four ? blocks for
    coins, and then head under the brick row in the sky to see Lakitu leave (at
    least he left quickly).  Use the Springboard to hit a brick that contains
    the only recurring 1-Up in the game (it will be there if you die and have to
    restart the level).
    
    Now you need to go right while fighting off three Green Paratroopa Koopas,
    and you need to keep pace with the aforementioned 1-Up Mushroom moving to
    the right along the row of bricks.  Once you see a lower row of bricks, jump
    onto them to wait and receive your 1-Up (if you were too fast/too slow, it
    will not be there to be collected).
    
    Now head right past the gaps and the Bullet Bill cannon to find a Green
    Paratroopa Koopa with a dual Bullet Bill cannon further along.  Jump past
    them to find  a Power-Up in the second brick you will see (just watch out
    for the Green Paratroopa Koopa), and then go past the Bullet Bill cannon on
    your right.  The next section has a Buzzy Beetle between a Bullet Bill
    cannon (already mentioned), and a ground level Bullet Bill cannon.  Just go
    atop the bricks to avoid that, and then the next section has two Buzzy
    Beetles between the Bullet Bill ground cannon and a tall Bullet Bill cannon
    (the second brick from the left has a Coin Block here).
    
    Now continue right over the Piranha Plant pipe to fight a Green Paratroopa
    Koopa, another Piranha Plant pipe, and another hard jump.  For this jump you
    can get down on the first one block wide platform, get to the very edge of
    it, and then run over the small gap to the second one block wide platform
    where you hop across the gap to the other side.  You can also run between
    the two Piranha Plants, take a low leap onto the second Piranha plant pipe,
    and then take a huge leap off of it to clear the wide gap (this way requires
    a fair amount of skill).
    
    Now that you are across the gap, you can go down the first Piranha Plant
    pipe (your time will be low of likeliness, so skip it), and then head right
    past the next Piranha Plant pipe (where the Bonus Room sends you back into
    the level) to fight three Green Paratroopa Koopas with a Bullet Bill cannon
    to complicate things further.
    
    Jump the gap, fight the two Goombas from the mini-stairs, and then go over
    the dual Bullet Bill cannon below to fight a Green Paratroopa Koopa.  Now
    you should carefully climb the rather shoddy stairs (jump the gaps
    carefully) to reach the top, where you can take a hug running leap for the
    top of the Flagpole.
    
    
                                  o-----------o
                                  | World 8-3 |
                                  o-----------o
    
    Jump the Bullet Bill cannon, take care of the Green Paratroopa Koopa, and
    then hop the tall Bullet Bill cannon as you head right to find a Piranha
    Plant pipe.  After going past it, two Hammer Brothers will attack, and I
    suggest you fight them (reason to be explained below).  Upon defeating the
    pair, get onto the bottom row of bricks, and then hit the second from the
    right brick above to reveal a Power-Up!

      |  |  |  |  |  |  |  |  |
      +--+--+--+--+--+--+--+--+
    
    Now after you have collected the Power-Up (likely a Super Mushroom), head
    right over the gap to the descending stairs, where another gap needs to be
    hopped across.  A Bullet Bill cannon, followed by a Green Paratroopa Koopa
    greet you, and then you should head right to find a wall in the way.  Jump
    the wall to mess with Hammer Brothers set #2!  Take them out, and then get
    onto the lower row of bricks, and hit the second from the left brick to
    reveal a Power-Up (hopefully you are still Super Mario, so you can become
    Fiery Mario!).
    
      +--+--+--+--+--+--+--+--+
      |  |PU|  |  |  |  |  |  |

      |  |  |  |  |  |  |  |  |
      +--+--+--+--+--+--+--+--+
    
    Jump onto the Piranha Plant, jump down to the platform below, stomp the
    Green Koopa Troopa so you can kick the shell and follow it as it plows
    through Hammer Brothers set #3!  If you have Fire Flower Power on your side,
    just shoot the Green Koopa Troopa, move forward slowly so you can shoot the
    two aforementioned Hammer Brothers.  Now jump the Piranha Plant pipe to
    tangle with Hammer Brothers set #4!  If you have fireballs, just shoot them
    as you go along, but if you are not Fiery Mario, you need to get in close to
    the Hammer Brothers (inside the arc of their hammers), and then run
    underneath them as they jump in the air.
    
    Once you are approaching the end of the brick wall behind you, keep an eye
    out for a yellow line that looks to be out of place, and start to hit it as
    it is a Coin Block!  Now jump up the barely there stairs to reach the ledge
    at the top, which you will of course jump off at full speed in an attempt to
    get yourself 5000 points!  You have arrived at your final destination,
    Bowser's last fortress!  He has to be inside, so go get him Mario!
    
    
                                  o-----------o
                                  | World 8-4 |
                                  o-----------o
    
    This fortress is a castle with a maze like system to it.  However, this one
    differs from the previous mazes you were in as you do not have to walk on
    certain levels of the floor in certain parts, but you must pick the proper
    pipes to go down.  If you choose the wrong one, you may end up right near
    the start of the level instead of going forward!  This walkthrough will list
    only the pipes that lead forward, so you are warned not to go exploring
    other pipes if you want to reach the end!
    
    Walk to the bottom step, jump the lava pit, jump the Piranha Plant pipe, and
    run right to hop another Piranha Plant pipe to fight three Goombas.  Next
    you have to use a horizontally moving ledge over a lava pit to get across,
    and then go down the first Piranha Plant pipe you see to advance to the next
    section.
    
    Head right past the Piranha Plant pipe to find two Buzzy Beetles (better to
    avoid them), another Piranha Plant pipe, and then two Green Paratroopa
    Koopas.  Following that up is another Piranha Plant pipe, a jump over a lava
    pit, and two charging Green Paratroopa Koopas while you hit an invisible
    Block.  Go on top of the Invisible Block, jump onto the floating Piranha
    Plant pipe when the Piranha Plant is out of the way, and then go down the
    pipe to get to the next section of the castle.

     |
    
    You will reappear in a new section of the castle where flying Red
    Cheep-Cheeps will start to bombard you with their bodies.  Head right past
    the first two Piranha plant pipes you will see, across the lava pit, and
    then down the first Piranha plant pipe you come across to get to the next
    section of the castle.
    
    This section of the castle is underwater, so swim carefully.  You will have
    to contend with not only normal underwater villains like Bloopers, but
    Firebars will also rear their ugly selves as well.
    
    Swim right (ignore the opening above) to wait for a Firebar to move to the
    11 O'Clock position before going to the bottom of the chamber.  Now head
    right to walk underneath another Firebar as it hits the 3 O'Clock position,
    and then swim through the enclosed passage the next Firebar guards when it
    moves to an 8 O'Clock position.  Now you should walk carefully across the
    bottom of the chamber underneath the two Firebars (not to mention the
    Bloopers) to the wall, which you should swim up to the pipe exit as the
    Firebar hits the 3 O'Clock position to move onto the LAST section of the
    castle!
    
    You come out of a Piranha Plant pipe to head right over another Piranha
    Plant pipe to find a lone Hammer Brother!  There are two good ways to deal
    with this deranged hammer-throwing opponent and those are the following.
    The more tried and true method is to wait inside the arc of the hammers, and
    when the Hammer Brother jumps into the air, run underneath to launch
    yourself across the lava pit (try not to hit the Podoboo that shoots out of
    there) to the final platform.  The other way to do this is to stand on the
    left edge of the Piranha Plant pipe, and just play the waiting game.
    Eventually the Hammer Brother will get mad at you, and he will charge in
    your direction (continuing to throw hammers and jump).  Your job is to leap
    over him, leap the lava pit (watching out for the Podoboo that shoots out of
    there) to land on the final platform.
    
    Moving to the right will bring Bowser flames your way, and once you get here,
    use your fireballs to roast the true Bowser, and send him flying into the
    lava pit to pay for his crimes.  Oh wait, you are a normal player, so you
    have no Fire Flower Power?  In that case, get in close so the hammers clear
    your head, and then run underneath Bowser to get the Axe Switch.  Another
    common method of getting by Bowser here is if you are Super Mario/Fiery
    Mario, you can just run into Bowser to get hurt, which means you are
    invulnerable (and still able to get the Axe Switch unimpeded).
    
    Go to the right to find the Princess Toadstool waiting to thank you for your
    hard work on saving the Mushroom Kingdom, but you also get the offer of
    pressing START to get a more difficult quest!  Anyway, Congratulations on
    succeeding in your journey to rescue Princess Toadstool, and for returning
    peace to the Mushroom Kingdom!

    --------------------------Second Quest Details------------------------------
    ----------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    13)This section will look at what effects that the second quest has that are
       different from the first quest.  It will also give some new strategies to
       use in some areas of the game as a result of these changes.  Many thanks
       to Trace "Meowthnum1" Jackson for contributing to my guide with this
       section!  Thanks buddy!
    
       Extra Mode is accessed by defeating King Bowser in world 8-4.  It is, in
       essence, the mode you just beat, with a few differences.  These
       differences, however, make the game more fun!
    
    
                                  o---------o
                                  | Changes |
                                  o---------o
    
    Enemies...........: The enemies in this mode are much faster than they are
                        in Normal Mode.  This becomes quite apparent where you
                        have the most trouble... or is it just me?
    
    Enemy Variety.....: Some enemies are substituted for harder enemies.  MOST
                        Goombas and some Green Koopa Troopas, for instance, are
                        replaced by the fire-proof Buzzy Beetles.
    
    Enemy Quantity....: Most enemies come in larger numbers now.  They just so
                        happen to be far enough apart to where you can't stomp
                        them all in a row.
    
    Enemy Intelligence: The enemies seem a little better at tracking you as
                        they change their platform levels (as opposed to just
                        Spinies who could do it in the First Quest).
    
    Half-way Points...: They only exist in the first few levels.  After that,
                        you PRETTY MUCH have to start the level over when you
                        die.
    
    Firebars..........: Most existing Firebars are now in the longer variety,
                        especially the first few.  Also, some empty blocks that
                        didn't previously have Firebars, now have them.  As
                        usual, all this becomes apparent in the later stages.
    
    Elevator Ledges...: Smaller than normal with one-third reduced.
    
    Cloud Heaven Cloud: Reduced in size on World Two and Three.
    
    Ending............: When you beat it, Toadstool doesn't give you another
                        Extra Quest. Thank [insert deity of your choice here]!

    --------------------------World One Second Quest----------------------------
    ----------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    14)This section will look at World One after you have beat the game once,
       and then started a new game.
    
    
                                  o-----------o
                                  | World 1-1 |
                                  o-----------o
    
    Start your journey by running to the right to hit a ? block, kill a Buzzy
    Beetle, and then hit the three ? blocks (two coins, and one Super Mushroom).
    After this adventure, head right to go over the pipes and the three Buzzy
    Beetles, and when you pass the second and third Buzzy Beetles, go halfway
    between the pipe and the bottomless pit.  Jump up to reveal a hidden block
    that contains a 1-Up Mushroom!  The pipe can also be gone down to a bonus
    room with multiple coins.

                                       |       |
    
    Jump across the gap, hit the bricks above as the two Buzzy Beetles fall down
    so you can then collect the power-up from the ? block, and then head right over
    the gap.  Kill the two Buzzy Beetles that approach, hit the brick by itself
    as it is a Coin Block (hit until it turns into a spent block), and then hit
    the ? block for a coin.  Next, you should hit the second brick of two for a
    Starman, collect it, and then run right as you plow through up to eight
    Buzzy Beetles.  Jump carefully over the one last gap, and then head up the
    staircase to the top, where you should run and jump off at the Flagpole for
    the top to score high (like 5,000 or 2,000 points).
    
    
                                  o-----------o
                                  | World 1-2 |
                                  o-----------o
    
    You go underground, and once you land, destroy the two Buzzy Beetles coming
    at you before you hit the five ? blocks to get four coins and a Power-Up.
    Now head across the mini-columns in your way, hit the Buzzy Beetle in the
    shallow hole so it is by one side of the hole, but DO NOT kick it.  Hit the
    Coin Block till it runs out, and then head right to take on two Green Koopa
    Troopas, get the coins off the brick structure (if you are still tall).
    Break the three right-most bricks to find a Starman, and then run right,
    ducking as you run under the low ledge so you will fit under (or bust the
    bricks above to make a different path).
    
    Head right collecting coins and killing all the enemies you can until your
    invincibility runs out.  A Power-Up is in the tip of a brick structure, so
    bust the bricks carefully to get at it, and then the brick structure that is
    2 X 5, hit the second column once, and then keep hitting the next block up
    as it is a Coin Block.
    
    Now get on the higher ledge, jump to the floating platform, and then hit the
    brick above you on the edge of the platform, quickly followed by hitting the
    one to the right of it immediately, so you will fall down to the bottom
    level as the 1-Up Mushroom will follow suit.
    
    -----------------------------+
    Key                          |

    Now you face three Buzzy Beetles, and then three Piranha Plants.  You can go
    down the first pipe to find a treasure trove of coins before you go back up
    to come out of the third pipe in the line.  Now jump the two gaps, kill the
    two Buzzy Beetles coming down the mini-stairs, and then jump onto the
    elevator coming down.  Jump to the next platform (the far right brick has a
    Power-Up for you if you fight off the Red Koopa Troopa), and then hop onto
    the next elevator going up so you can land on the far ledge to go up the
    pipe.  Once you move up the pipe, go right up the stairs, and launch
    yourself from the top to hit the Flagpole on the higher points of it.
    
    The other option is to ride the elevator to near the top of the screen, hop
    onto the roof of the level, and then run right till you fall down into a
    Warp Zone!  You can warp to Worlds 2, 3, or 4 if you go this route!  The
    following will make it clearer in picture form:

                                  o-----------o
    
    Bullet Bills have been added to this level, and they will shoot from all
    levels of the screen throughout your trip!
    
    Head right to kill a Red Koopa Troopa and two Buzzy Beetles as you collect
    various coins on the unlevel platforms (careful not to fall off the cliffs).
    Jump down to the low platform (collect the two coins on the fall), jump
    across the gap using the elevator, and hit the ? block to find a Power-Up.
    
    Then you should take the aforementioned elevator up to the top ledge for four
    coins, and then jump the gap that the Red Paratroopa Koopa patrols (look out
    for the Buzzy Beetle on the far ledge).  Now you need to use the
    horizontally moving ledge, and jump from it to the next moving horizontally
    moving ledge, and then onto the next platform.
    
    Take out the Red Koopa, the Red Paratroopa Koopa, and then collect the coins
    before you jump across the horizontally moving ledge to reach the stairs.
    Now jump off the top to hit the Flagpole high up for a lot of points!  Now
    you are entering your first fortress, so be ready!
    
    
                                  o-----------o
                                  | World 1-4 |
                                  o-----------o
    
    Jump the lava pit, go right past the Firebar, jump the lava pit (jump to
    the platform when the Fire Bar is just starting to pass 9 O'Clock), hit the
    ? block for a Power-Up, and then jump to the next ledge when the Fire Bar is
    at the 6 to 9 O'Clock position.  Now walk to the right carefully so the
    Fire Bars will not hit you, and then when the hall opens a bit, jump the
    Fire Bars when they are pointed to 12 O'Clock (this allows you to clear the
    Fire Bars without worry of it swinging around to get you), and then hop the
    flames that flies at you (this is a BOWSER ATTACK!).
    
    Now you are in a depression in the floor where the flames from Bowser fly
    overhead, jump up in the air to find invisible blocks that yield one coin
    each if you hit them.  They are arranged as follows:
    
    -------------------------------------+
    Key                                  |
                                         |
    1,2,3,4,5,6 - order of brick hitting |
                                         |
    -------------------------------------+
    
              +--+      +--+      +--+
              |2 |      |4 |      |6 |
              +--+      +--+      +--+
    
    
    
    
           +--+      +--+      +--+
           |1 |      |3 |      |5 |
           +--+      +--+      +--+
    --+                                +--
      |                                |
      |                                |
      |                                |
      +--------------------------------+
    
    now you will have one more safe spot from Bowser's flames, and then you step
    onto his bridge to fight him (be sure to watch out for the Podoboo on the
    bridge!).  If you have Fire Flower Power, shoot fireballs till the Koopa
    King is dead for 5,000 points (it is a fake), or if you are Fireless, then
    you should run forward to jump Bowser OR run underneath him when he jumps to
    pull the Axe Switch to send the bridge supports falling away (incidentally
    carrying Bowser to burn in the lava below!).  Congratulations on finishing
    World One!

    --------------------------World Two Second Quest----------------------------
    ----------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    15)This section will look at World Two after you have beat the game once,
       and then started a new game.
    
    
                                  o-----------o
                                  | World 2-1 |
                                  o-----------o
    
    Start the level by going right to punch the middle brick of the three brick
    set to get a Power-Up, and then knock the Buzzy Beetle away before you go up
    the mini-stairs.  Now jump down where you should hit one of the Green Koopa
    Troopas, but do NOT kick the shells.  Now you should jump up and hit an
    invisible block which is found below and to the left of where the brick line
    is in the sky, and then get onto the block to jump straight up to hit the
    invisible 1-Up block.  The following will give you an idea of what I mean:
    
    -----------------------------+
    Key                          |
                                 |

                                 |
    -----------------------------+
    
              1-Up

              |2 |  |  |  |
              +--+--+--+--+
    
    
    
    +--+                         +--+
    |  |                         |  |
    +--+      +--+               +--+
    |  |      |1 |               |  |
    +--+      +--+               +--+
    |  |                         |  |

    |  |                         |  |
    +--+-------------------------+--+
    
    After that, head right two face two Buzzy Beetles, and then jump the pipe to
    land where a Green Koopa Troopa waits.  After dealing with him, you have to
    get rid of two Buzzy Beetles, and then you should bust up the ten ? blocks
    for a Power-Up and nine coins.  Then you face three Buzzy Beetles, jump up
    on the first brick you come across in the air, and hit the brick that is
    just to your up-right to release a Starman.  Now collect it, hit the seven
    ? blocks as you kill the three Goombas, and then hit the third of five
    bricks above to make a beanstalk appear!  Climb the beanstalk to go to Coin
    Heaven!
    
                 VINE

    -----------------------------------
    
    Coin Heaven has a white platform for you to get on, and you will jump up to
    get the coins in the air, and when the platform is about to run out, get off
    the cloud so you can take running leap at the three coins left in the air
    before falling back to the regular level.  When you land, hit the Coin Block
    to your left, and then hit the ? block for a coin before dealing with the
    Piranha Plant and the Green Koopa Troopa.  Now use the Springboard or the
    invisible block above the bricks to get to the top of the wall, where you
    will run and jump to reach the top of the Flagpole.
    
    
                                  o-----------o
                                  | World 2-2 |
                                  o-----------o
    
    This is an underwater level, so you will press the A Button to swim, and B
    Button to throw fireballs (if you have Fire Flower Power).  On this quest,
    the Blooper totals have risen significantly throughout the whole level, and
    the quantity of Red Cheep-Cheeps has also risen!
    
    You will start by swimming right to get three coins on the bottom, go past a
    Blooper, go over the seaweed, and then get the three coins on the bottom.
    Next you face a Blooper, swim over the seaweed, go past another Blooper, and
    then swim over the suction of the pit below (go into it for coins if you
    like).
    
    Now Cheep-Cheeps will start coming at random locations on the screen for the
    rest of the level, so be wary.  Three Bloopers will quickly appear, so stay
    on the bottom so they come to you, and then walk under them before swimming
    away from them.  Now you will see another suction from the pit below (again
    the coins are optional pick-ups).
    
    Continuing right will take you over yet another suction pit with coins inside
    of it (collect if you dare), and then swim across the top of the water to
    avoid the fish.  Then you should drop down to go through the pipe to find
    yourself at the staircase, so climb up and leap off at the Flagpole to finish
    the level.
    
    
                                  o-----------o
                                  | World 2-3 |
                                  o-----------o
    
    This level has enemies that are only flying Cheep-Cheeps.  Each paragraph
    will represent each bridge you are crossing, and in some cases, the small
    ledges grouped together.  This level has Green Koopa Troopas, Green
    Paratroopa Koopas, and Red Koopa Troopas added into it for the secoond
    quest!  The Red Cheep-Cheeps will also appear in large amounts than usual.
    
    Bridge #1 is fairly long run with nine total coins on it, but you need to
    watch out for a Green Koopa Troopa , followed by a Green Paratroopa Koopa
    before you hop the gap.
    
    Bridge #2 is a very short section with four coins on it as well as a Red
    Koopa Troopa before you get to hop to the next bridge.
    
    Bridge #3 is short with a Red Koopa Troopa on it.  The gap jump leads to
    Bridge #4 where you can get the lone Power-Up on it from a ? block.  Leap
    down to the green platform where a Red Koopa Troopa attacks before you can
    hop to Bridge #5.
    
    Bridge #5 has some coins as well as the first Green Paratroopa Koopa in the
    game that is able to have sustained airbourne flight (as opposed to the
    regular behaviour of bouncing along), and it leads to Bridge #6 where you
    find another evolutionary advanced Green Paratroopa Koopa guarding some
    coins.  When you finish on this bridge, jump on over to Bridge #7.
    
    Bridge #7 leads to three small platform hops before depositing you onto
    Bridge #8.
    
    Bridge #8 is the end of the attacks, so run to jump the gap, climb the
    stairs, and then take a running leap at the Flagpole.
    
    
                                  o-----------o
                                  | World 2-4 |
                                  o-----------o
    
    This castle has been upgraded to 5-4 difficulty of the First Quest,
    including the massively large Fire Bar found by the lone Power-Up of the
    level!
    
    Begin by running right to jump across the two platforms (be sure to miss the
    Podoboo flying from the lava), hit the Power-Up ? block, and then get on top
    of it so you can hop the approaching huge Firebar.  Then you should hop down
    across the last platform while avoiding the Podoboos to arrive at the next
    section.
    
    Go along the bottom route slowly so you can avoid the Fire Bars here, and
    then hop up to the next ledge when the Fire Bar there is at 2 O'Clock.  Leap
    onto the Donkey Kong-like elevators here and get across the pit while
    avoiding the Firebar guarding the ledge (try to jump when the Firebar is at
    3 O'Clock).  Then you can risk going after the six Gold Coins if you like
    to duel with a Firebar for them.  The Bowser flames start at this point as
    well!
    
    Now you need to jump across the two lava pits while dodging the Bowser
    flames, and then go past the two pits where you can hide from the flames to
    find a brick walkway above (bust a couple to get up there if you are Super
    Mario).  Making sure to avoid the Podoboo at the start of the bridge, you
    just need to run across to get to the Axe Switch, or you can use the Fire
    Flower Power method to wipe Bowser out (once again it is a fake).
    Congratulations on finishing World Two!

    -------------------------World Three Second Quest---------------------------
    ----------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    16)This section will look at World Three after you have beat the game once,
       and then started a new game.
    
    
                                  o-----------o
                                  | World 3-1 |
                                  o-----------o
    
    You head right from the Fortress to hit two ? blocks before you tangle with
    two Green Paratroopa Koopas (you can also avoid them by going on top of the
    spent ? blocks).  The next ? block contains a Power-Up, and then you will
    continue right past the bricks, past the first Piranha Plant to find a
    Buzzy Beetle.  Go down the next pipe to enter a Bonus Room, and once you
    finish up in there (there is s a Power-Up on the left side of the brick
    structure), you will go onto a bridge.
    
    Kill/avoid the three Buzzy Beetles, and then go about three quarters of the
    way across the bridge to where you will jump up to hit an Invisible Block
    with a 1-Up inside!
    
                         1-Up

    +--+                       +--+
    
    Now jump the gap, and then jump off of the two block high stack at the
    left-most brick to release a Starman.  Carefully collect it as you
    kill/avoid two Buzzy Beetles and a Green Koopa Troopa, and then go past the
    Piranha Plant to find the first Hammer Brother set of the game (just run
    through them as you are invincible).  Now use the Springboard to get on top
    of the bricks high in the sky, and then go down to tangle with two more
    Buzzy Beetles (kick them off the cliff).  Now you should get right next to
    the steps, hold the B Button, and then run left, followed by a jump for the
    lower brick platform.  Then you should hit the right-most brick above you to
    reveal a Vine to go to Coin Heaven!

    When you fall back to the regular level, go under the brick platform, and
    start punching the second brick (going from the left) to find a Coin Block!
    Now jump over the gap, and you have arrived at the first place in the game
    that you can gain multiple lives!  Kill the first Green Koopa Troopa, wait
    for the second one to start his step to the stair above yours, and then jump
    straight up to retreat the Koopa Troopa into it's shell.  If done correctly,
    you will start to bounce repeatedly on the shell to more and more points
    before long 1-Ups start tot total up!  You will have to start the jumping
    chain over on occasion, but you can gain many lives here (do not gain too
    many lives, as it will end your game: see the 1-Up Methods section for
    diagrams on this trick as well as info on too many lives).
    
    When you have had your run at extra Marios, go up the stairs, to where you
    launch yourself off to get a high total on the Flagpole!

    Start this level by hopping on the first Green Koopa Troopa you see, kick
    the shell, and then follow it to get a 1-Up for plowing through all the
    enemies on the path (be sure to jump the rebounding shell).  Now you should
    collect the three Gold Coins, hit the ? block to release a Power-Up, and
    then collect it as you/before you fight a Green Koopa Troopa and three Buzzy
    Beetles.  If you have Fire Flower Power, roast the Green Koopa Troopa before
    you go to hit the Coin Block.  If you do not have the fireballs to use, go
    hit the top brick to get a Starman, kill the Green Koopa Troopa, and then
    hit the Coin Block.
    
    Now head right to fight a Green Paratroopa Koopa, a Green Koopa, and then
    three Buzzy Beetles before you hit a gap.  Jump the gap, jump the next gap,
    and then stomp the Green Koopa Troopa so you can kick the shell.  Follow
    the shell as it heads right to plow through enemies till you gain another
    1-Up! Now head over the Piranha Plant pipe, stomp the Green Koopa, kick the
    shell to follow it as it reaches 5000 points before the shell rebounds off
    the barrier.  Now you should climb the staircase, take a running leap from
    the top, and then you will land on the Flagpole to get yourself a nice and
    high bonus score!

    The Pulley Ledges has also had their platforms reduced in size by one
    third over the first quest!
    
    Start by running right, jump up two ledges to fight a Buzzy Beetle, and
    then use the moving platform to reach the next ledge.  Now head right as
    you get a few of the scattered Gold Coins, kill the two Red Koopa Troopas
    as you get some more Gold Coins and a Power-Up, and then hop off the high
    ledge to a sinking platform )+(jump to the right immediately to the waiting
    ledge).
    
    Run across the holes as you get some coins, jump to the next ledge, and then
    make use of the pulley ledges (these will sink on your end, rise on the
    other) to get onto the next set of moving platforms.  Now that you have got
    to a solid ledge, jump across the gap to the next ledge where you find three
    waiting Gold Coins, and then jump the gap that is guarded be a Red
    Paratroopa Koopa.  The next ledge up has two Red Koopa Troopas patrolling
    it, and then use the next moving platform to get onto to another pulley
    ledge set.  Draw the left side down so you can hop to the right ledge as it
    rises.  Now you should take a running leap before the ledge sinks down to
    far so you can hit high on the Flagpole.
    
    
                                  o-----------o

                                  o-----------o
    
    Start off by running right to jump across three lava pits, but you have
    Podoboos flying out of each lava pit as well as Firebars on each platform
    (the best way to go is to jump across quickly).  Now you come across three
    ? blocks, and the middle one has a Power-Up for you.  Once you collect the
    Power-Up, jump the lava pit, then hop through the first two Firebars
    (the bottom ones) when they are at a 3 O'Clock position, and then hop though
    the last Firebar set when the bottom one is at 7 O'Clock position.
    
    Now hop the lava pit, at which point Bowser starts his flame barrage, and
    then you enter a room where three lava pits are found, each one with a
    Podoboo inside.  You should carefully jump from one platform to the next
    when the Podoboo ahead of you is heading down into the lava and when the
    Bowser flames are not blocking your jump.
    
    Now head for the bunker in the pathway, and then head out again when no
    flames are coming.  Run right to find Bowser and his bridge as usual, and
    you should use fireballs (if you got them).  Otherwise, wait for Bowser to
    make a jump, and then cut underneath him, or jump him as he is landing
    from his jump.  Pull the Axe Switch to send him into his lava bath!
    Congratulations on finishing World Three!

    The best way to do this level is to rush your way through, or to kill
    Lakitu at every opportunity (high ledges).  This guide will list the latter,
    but running through is the suggested method.
    
    Start off by going right, jumping the Piranha Plant, and get the Power-Up
    from the ? block.  Now Lakitu should be raining Spinies down to accost you,
    so take this opportunity to jump on top of the higher ? block so you can
    kill Lakitu.  Now run right to jump a gap, grab the four Gold Coins, punch
    the next four ? blocks, and then kill a Lakitu again when he shows up.
    
    Now head right to jump a gap, and then you will find four ? blocks in the
    air.  Go on top of the blocks, stand on the third one (from the left), and
    then jump straight up to find an Invisible Block with a 1-Up inside!
    
                   1-Up

             |? |? |? |? |
             +--+--+--+--+
    
    Head right as Lakitu returns to annoy you, jump the Piranha Plant pipe,
    collect the coins, and then go down the next pipe to enter a Bonus Room.
    After you exit, head right to jump three gaps (during the third one, Lakitu
    returns again), and then run right at full speed so Lakitu can not catch up
    to you (he will turn around when you reach the end of level staircase),
    Climb the staircase, fall down to hit the Coin Block, and then hop back on
    top of the staircase to jump for the high end of the Flagpole.
    
    
                                  o-----------o

    Upon entering this level, you are immediately faced with some tough terrain
    to jump on.  The easiest way to clear it is to start with a big run, half
    jump (tap the A Button) to land on the wider ledge, and then do a full jump
    to clear the rest of the pit.  Go into the mini-bunker to get a Power-Up and
    some Gold Coins before you head right down the hall to tangle with three
    Buzzy Beetles in the enclosed space (try to bounce your way across all three
    at once, or just stomp the first one so you can kick it at the other two).
    The fifth from the right column of bricks has a Coin Block inside of it.

    Warp Zone #2!  Choose your World that is your destination, and then head on
    to the next challenge!
    
    Now that you have seen and read how to do this Warp, we revert to the same
    starting point to continue on.  Grab the Power-Up from the ? block second
    from the right of the elevator pit.  Now go across the elevator, go past the
    Piranha Plant, go for the Coin Block beside the pipe (if you can handle the
    Green Koopa Troopa), and then jump over the tall Piranha Plant pipe to try
    and get the Starman from the right-most brick where the Buzzy Beetle is
    patrolling.
    
    Now head left over the pipes, past Buzzy Beetles, the Green Koopa Troopas,
    and then hop over the gaps to reach an elevator.  Hop onto the second ledge
    of the middle part between elevators, and hit the middle brick for a
    Power-Up.  Now you have a choice, ride the elevator up to the top so you can
    get on the ceiling to make a run for the Warp Zone to World 5, or continue
    on through the level (this walkthrough will finish the level).
    
    Once you get by the elevator, three Piranha Plants and a Green Koopa Troopa
    are waiting on this ledge, so jump the platform to face a Buzzy Beetle
    before you hop on an elevator moving downwards.  Hop off to punch the first
    brick in the long horizontal row of them to reveal a Power-Up, and then
    hop over the two Green Koopa Troopas to get the Super Mushroom (or bust the
    bricks before the Koopa Troopas get to you so you can just roast them with
    Fire Flower Power).  Head up the mini-stairs, hop to the tall Piranha Plant
    pipe, fall down to the low ledge, and then hop to the higher ledge to take
    the pipe out of the underground.  Go up the staircase to launch yourself
    off the top to reach the upper reaches of the Flagpole.

    Go right to see that this is a multi-platformed level.  Jump up to the next
    ledge where two Red Koopa Troopas guard many Gold Coins, and then hop to the
    next high ledge on your right .  Hop the Red Paratroopa Koopa, get the
    Power-Up from the ? block, and then go down to the bottom ledge where the
    Red Koopa Troopa guards some coins.  Head right once more to play on a
    pulley ledge, and use that to get to the moving vertical platform set.
    
    Once you get across that set, wait for the second platform in the set to go
    high before you vacate it so you can get some coins, and then kill the Red
    Koopa Troopa on the next platform.  Now you have to go across three pulley
    ledges, so do the following maneuvers: stay on the left ledge till the right
    starts to rise, and do this two more times for the second and third pulley
    ledges in the set.  You will land on a platform with five Gold Coins, and
    then head left across the remaining platforms to reach a vertically moving
    ledge, which you will take a running leap off of when it is at it's highest
    point so you land on the higher part of the Flagpole.

    This Fortress is the first of three castles that requires Mario to go
    through the castle on a certain path because it is a maze.  If the wrong
    path is taken, you will have to repeat the area you just attempted.
    
    The castle starts off by giving two lava pits to be jumped, followed up by a
    choice between the high road or the low road.  Take the high path, and make
    sure to run as you head right so you will go over the gaps in the floor (the
    Firebar will not hit you, so do not worry).
    
    Now when you get to the next section of the maze, go up the small, rising
    platforms, and when you reach the first hole in the top floor, go through
    it, and then go through the hole on your left to reach the bottom floor.
    Now run right to finish off this section of the maze, and Bowser will choose
    this moment to start trying to barbeque you (be wary of the Firebar as you
    go right).
    
    Continue right past the bunker in the floor to reach the Bowser bridge where
    Bowser has both a Firebar and a Podoboo to help defend him.  Shoot with
    fireballs form a safe distance (behind the Firebar), or carefully jump the
    Firebar, get by the Podoboo, and then go under/over Bowser if you are
    Regular/Super Mario.  Grab the Axe Switch to send Bowser falling into the
    lava, and then head over to find Toad once more!  Congratulation on
    finishing World 4!

    Stomp the Green Koopa Troopa at the start, kick the shell, and then follow
    it to kill nine enemies for a lot of points as well as a 1-Up (be sure to
    hop the rebounding shell)!  Jump the Piranha Plant pipe, jump the gap to the
    next pipe when the Piranha Plant is going down into the pipe, and then take
    the Green Paratroopa Koopa down to it's shell so you can kick it to clear
    enemies out of your way (up to the 8000 point spot in the chain).  Now hit
    the middle brick of the three to receive a Starman, ad then run right
    through three Buzzy Beetles, past the Bullet Bill cannon, over the gap
    through three Buzzy Beetles, a Green Koopa Troopa, three Buzzy Beetles, and
    then two Green Koopa Troopas (you can also kick the front Buzzy Beetle for a
    1-Up through the point chain if you missed the Starman).  Now you should
    jump the wall, and then try to jump back through the small hole to reveal an
    Invisible Block hiding a 1-Up!

    After collecting the 1-Up, take a running leap to the floating pipe when the
    Piranha Plant is starting to return to the inside of the pipe.  When you
    land on the pipe, go down inside of it to find a Bonus Room.  When you
    return to the level, go past the Bullet Bill cannon, and then tangle with
    two Green Paratroopa Koopas before heading up the broken stairs (make sure
    to hop over to the far side if the staircase).  Take a running leap off of
    the staircase top to reach the Flagpole top.
    
    If you are extremely good, you can make one of the Green Paratroopa Koopas
    into a Green Koopa on the stairs, where you can do the 1-Up trick on the
    stairs.  This is extremely hard to do, but it is possible on this staircase
    to do so.
    
    
                                  o-----------o
                                  | World 5-2 |
                                  o-----------o
    
    Go up the stairs to find a Bullet Bill cannon, which you will jump to land
    on a lower edge.  Here you will find a Springboard, which you should use to
    get onto the high brick ledge.  Now go to the end of the brick ledge, drop
    down to the lower brick ledge, and hit the right-most brick to gain a
    Power-Up.  Move to the right to see a solo Hammer Brother guarding the
    stairwell, and he leaves you two choices: one is to kamikaze charge at him
    in hope of jumping between the hammers for a lucky kill, or back off onto
    the high brick ledge to wait for the Hammer Brother to charge at you.  I
    suggest that you wait, and when he finally charges, take a running leap past
    him, and then go down the first pipe you come across.
    
    Now I know this is the weird room to go to (it is the underwater room with
    enemies), but once you get through, you will see why.  Anyway, head right
    past the first Blooper, swim through the suction elevator while dodging the
    now appearing Cheep-Cheeps, and then avoid the Bloopers and Cheep-Cheeps as
    you collect some coins on the way to the exit pipe.  When you reappear, a
    place where you would have to fight a pair of Hammer Brothers has been
    stripped of them (you actually get to avoid three total Hammer Brothers this
    way!).  Now get onto the lower brick ledge, go to the very end on the right,
    and then jump up to reveal a Starman.  Collect the Starman as you hop across
    the gap, and then head right as you plow through three Buzzy Beetles.  Now
    you should use the Crouching Slide (if you are Super or Fiery Mario) to get
    under the first low brick to hit a Coin Block dry.  Then get the one beside
    it for a Power-Up.
    
    Jump up the brick ledges to face a Red Koopa Troopa, then drop down to kill
    two Green Paratroopa Koopas before you use the lone brick to reach the high
    brick ledge.  Then you should hop down to the ground, kill the Green
    Paratroopa Koopa, and then carefully hop up the broken staircase to the top
    where you can launch yourself with wild abandon for the higher portions of
    the Flagpole.
    
    
                                  o-----------o
                                  | World 5-3 |
                                  o-----------o
    
    Keep in mind that Bullet Bills will fly at you for the whole level from the
    left side of the screen.
    
    Head right to kill a Red Koopa Troopa and two Buzzy Beetles as you collect
    various coins on the unlevel platforms (careful not to fall off the cliffs).
    Jump down to the low platform (collect the two coins on the fall), jump
    across the gap using the elevator, and hit the ? block to find a Power-Up.
    
    Then you should take the aforementioned elevator up to the top ledge for
    four coins, and then jump the gap that the Red Paratroopa Koopa patrols
    (look out for the Buzzy Beetle on the far ledge).  Now you need to use the
    horizontally moving ledge, and jump from it to the next moving horizontally
    moving ledge, and then onto the next platform.  Take out the Red Koopa, the
    Red Paratroopa Koopa, and then collect the coins before you jump across the
    horizontally moving ledge to reach the stairs.  Now jump off the top to hit
    the Flagpole high up for a lot of points!
    
    
                                  o-----------o
                                  | World 5-4 |
                                  o-----------o
    
    Begin by running right to jump across the two platforms (be sure to miss the
    Podoboo flying from the lava), hit the Power-Up ? block, and then get on top
    of it so you can hop the approaching huge Firebar.  Then you should hop down
    across the last platform while avoiding the Podoboos to arrive at the next
    section.
    
    Go along the bottom route slowly so you can avoid the Fire Bars here, and
    then hop up to the next ledge when the Fire Bar there is at 2 O'Clock.  Leap
    onto the Donkey Kong-like elevators here and get across the pit while
    avoiding the Firebar guarding the ledge (try to jump when the Firebar is at
    3 O'Clock).  Then you can risk going after the six Gold Coins if you like
    to duel with a Firebar for them.  The Bowser flames start at this point as
    well!
    
    Now you need to jump across the two lava pits while dodging the Bowser
    flames, and then go past the two pits where you can hide from the flames to
    find a brick walkway above (bust a couple to get up there if you are Super
    Mario).  Making sure to avoid the Podoboo at the start of the bridge, you
    just need to run across to get to the Axe Switch, or you can use the Fire
    Flower Power method to wipe Bowser out (once again it is a fake).
    Congratulations on finishing World Two!

    Head off to the right, hit the two ? blocks, jump the gap, and you run into
    Spiny courtesy of good old Lakitu!  Now hit the left-most brick at the top
    to get the Power-Up contained within, and then head left to jump another
    gap.  Grab the coins, head up the stairs, jump the gap, and then go up to
    the top of the next stairs where you can kill Lakitu.  Now go down to the
    lower brick ledge, head left onto the ground, get tight to the stairs, and
    then jump up to reveal an Invisible Block that contains a 1-Up!

    Now you will head right over a Piranha Plant pipe, up the mini-stairs, hit
    the two blocks to reveal a Power-Up in the right one, and by this point,
    Lakitu should have reappeared.  Now head right up the next stairs, kill
    Lakitu if you wish to (easiest with fireballs), and then you can go after
    the Coin Block in the bricks below your ledge.  You can just walk in to hit
    the Coin Block if you are Regular Mario, but if you are Super/Fiery Mario you
    need to use a Crouching Slide running from the left of the lowest brick ledge
    to get under the Coin Block.

    Now head right over the gap, up the first part of the stairs, jump the big
    gap in the stairs, and then take a running leap off the top of the stairs to
    get a good score on the Flagpole.
    
    
                                  o-----------o

                                  o-----------o
    
    Go right to go over a Piranha Plant pipe, kill the Green Koopa Troopa with
    fireballs (or retreat the Koopa Troops into the shell on the side of the
    screen near the pipe without kicking the shell).  Now jump up when you are
    directly below the middle brick of the high brick line to reveal an
    Invisible Block, and then jump straight up off of said block to start
    punching away on a Coin Block!  Head right past the many Piranha Plant pipes
    while fighting a Green Paratroopa Koopa, and then stomp a Buzzy Beetle so it
    retreats into it's shell without kicking the shell.  Now punch the second
    brick between the two pipes for a Power-Up.
    
    Now take a leap to the Piranha Plant pipe, and go down to enter a hidden
    water area!  Head right past the first Blooper, swim through the suction
    elevator while dodging the now appearing Cheep-Cheeps, and then avoid the
    Bloopers and Cheep-Cheeps as you collect some coins on the way to the exit
    pipe.  When you reappear, jump onto the brick on your left, and then hop up
    to the next highest brick, followed by a leap to the long brick row high in
    the air.  Going right will bring you to a drop to two Piranha Plant pipes,
    and after that, jump to the first brick ledge you see another brick ledge
    just to your right.  Now punch the first brick above you to reveal a
    Starman, which you should grab and head right through the Piranha Plants,
    Goombas, and other enemies.
    
    Once you reach the stairs, you can dewing the Green Paratroopa Koopa, stomp
    the Green Koopa Troopa, and then start the 1-Up bounce technique if you are
    fast enough at it.  Anyway, once that is done, head up the staircase to the
    top, and hurl yourself forcefully from the top to hit the Flagpole for a lot
    of points!
    
    
                                  o-----------o
                                  | World 6-3 |
                                  o-----------o
    
    This is a platform and ledge jumping bonanza level, along with Bullet Bill
    starting to shoot through at the halfway point.  I will do my best to
    describe each part, but this is a level that requires the player to do most
    of the work themselves through skill and practice.
    
    Run right, jump up the platforms, and then jump on to the vertically ledge.
    Grab the two coins at the top of the ledge area, jump right to the platform,
    and then use the springboard on the right to get up to the two horizontally
    moving ledges.  After you get across to the third ledge, hit the ? block to
    reveal a Power-Up.
    
    Jump to the vertically moving ledge, then jump to the platform on the right,
    and then make use of the two pulley ledges (do this by lowering the left
    side so you can hop off the raised right ledge).  This will get you onto a
    high platform with some coins on it, and following that, the Bullet Bills
    start as you head right across some platforms till you reach a Springboard.
    Use the Springboard to jump up to the horizontally moving ledge, jump to the
    pulley ledge, jump to the platforms on the right, and then quickly hop
    across the sinking ledged over the pit (be sure to hop forward swiftly so
    you do not sink too far down).  Now take a running leap from the platform to
    reach the Flagpole's higher echelons!
    
    
                                  o-----------o
                                  | World 6-4 |
                                  o-----------o
    
    Jump the lava pit, go right under the Firebar, jump the lava pit (jump to the
    platform when the Fire Bar is just starting to pass 9 O'Clock), hit the ?
    block for a Power-Up, and then jump to the next ledge.  Now walk right
    carefully so the Fire Bars will not hit you, and then when the hall opens a
    bit, jump the Fire Bars when they are pointed to 12 O'Clock (this allows you
    to clear the Fire Bars without worry of it swinging around to get you), and
    then hop the flames that flies at you (this is a BOWSER ATTACK!).
    
    Now you are in a depression in the floor where the flames from Bowser fly
    overhead, jump up in the air to find invisible blocks that yield one coin
    each if you hit them.  They are arranged as follows:
    
    -------------------------------------+
    Key                                  |
                                         |
    1,2,3,4,5,6 - order of brick hitting |
                                         |
    -------------------------------------+
    
              +--+      +--+      +--+
              |2 |      |4 |      |6 |
              +--+      +--+      +--+
    
    
    
    
           +--+      +--+      +--+

      |                                |
      |                                |
      +--------------------------------+
    
    now you will have one more safe spot from Bowser's flames, and then you step
    onto his bridge to fight him.  If you have Fire Flower Power, shoot
    fireballs till the Koopa King is dead for 5,000 points (this allows Mario to
    not have to pass the Podoboo or avoid the thrown hammers of Bowser), or if
    you are Fireless, then you should run forward past the Podoboo to run
    underneath Bowser when he jumps during his hammer throwing frenzy.  Pull
    the Axe Switch to send the bridge supports falling away (incidentally
    carrying Bowser to burn in the lava below!).  Congratulations on finishing
    World Six!

       and then started a new game.

                                  o-----------o
    
    Start off by heading right to find a Bullet Bill Cannon, a Green Paratroopa
    Koopa, and then a duel Bullet Bill cannon (from this point on, they can be
    stacked on top of one another).  After getting on top of the first stacked
    cannon, hit the left brick to reveal a Power-Up, collect it, and then head
    right past another Bullet Bill cannon to fight yet another Green Paratroopa
    Koopa.
    
    Hit the four ? blocks for coins if you like, jump the tall Bullet Bill
    cannon, and then fight a Green Paratroopa Koopa before hopping on top of the
    dual Bullet Bill cannon.  Next you will go past the approaching Green
    Paratroopa Koopa, go underneath the Bullet Bill cannon on the bricks, and
    punch the Coin Block in the third brick from the left while avoiding more
    Bullet Bills from a cannon on the right.
    
    Jump the gap, go over the Piranha Plant pipe, and you will have to
    fight/flee two Hammer Brothers.  The next pipe after that pair takes you to
    a Bonus Room (jump up to find the hidden 1-Up Mushroom if it generated for 
    you), and when you return to the level, you face a Bullet Bill cannon.  Now
    cross over the Piranha Plant pipe to face another pair of Hammer Brothers 
    (fight or flee as you see fit).
    
    Jump the dual Bullet Bill cannon, use the Springboard to reveal a Power-Up,
    collect the Power-Up, and then head right over the first set of mini-stairs
    to the second set where you can perform the bouncing shell trick for lots of
    points and 1-Ups (on the approaching Buzzy Beetle).  Now head up to the top
    of the stairs where you will leap to the high end of the Flagpole.
    
    
                                  o-----------o
                                  | World 7-2 |
                                  o-----------o
    
    You will start by swimming right to get three coins on the bottom, go past a
    Blooper, go over the seaweed, and then get the three coins on the bottom.
    Next you face a Blooper, swim over the seaweed, go past another Blooper, and
    then swim over the suction of the pit below (go into it for coins if you
    like).
    
    Now Cheep-Cheeps will start coming at random locations on the screen for the
    rest of the level, so be wary.  Three Bloopers will quickly appear, so stay
    on the bottom so they come to you, and then walk under them before swimming
    away from them.  Now you will see another suction from the pit below (again
    the coins are optional pick-ups).
    
    Continuing right will take you over yet another suction pit with coins
    inside of it (collect if you dare), and then swim across the top of the
    water to avoid the fish.  Then you should drop down to go through the pipe
    to find yourself at the staircase, so climb up and leap off at the Flagpole
    to finish the level.
    
    
                                  o-----------o
                                  | World 7-3 |
                                  o-----------o
    
    Bridge #1 is fairly long run with nine total coins on it, but you need to
    watch out for a Green Koopa Troopa , followed by a Green Paratroopa Koopa
    before you hop the gap.
    
    Bridge #2 is a very short section with four coins on it as well as a Red
    Koopa Troopa before you get to hop to the next bridge.
    
    Bridge #3 is short with a Red Koopa Troopa on it.  The gap jump leads to
    Bridge #4 where you can get the lone Power-Up on it from a ? block.  Leap
    down to the green platform where a Red Koopa Troopa attacks before you can
    hop to Bridge #5.
    
    Bridge #5 has some coins as well as a Green Paratroopa Koopa that is able to
    have sustained airbourne flight (as opposed to the regular behaviour of
    bouncing along), and it leads to Bridge #6 where you find another
    evolutionary advanced Green Paratroopa Koopa guarding some coins.  When you
    finish on this bridge, jump on over to Bridge #7.
    
    Bridge #7 leads to three small platform hops before depositing you onto
    Bridge #8.
    
    Bridge #8 is the end of the attacks, so run to jump the gap, climb the
    stairs, and then take a running leap at the Flagpole.

                                  o-----------o
    
    This fortress is the second maze fortress you will encounter.  If you are
    getting a repeat section of the castle, carefully go through each
    permutation of a path (or just use my guide).
    
    Head right to jump across to a sinking vertical ledge, and then you should
    jump across to the next sinking vertical ledge before hopping to the solid
    ground on the right (be sure to avoid the Podoboo that inhabits the lava pit
    here).
    
    Now take the bottom route, jump up to the next ledge you come to, and then
    jump up to the next ledge as the one you are on runs out to get to the next
    section of the castle.
    
    Take a running leap to hit the high ledge the Firebar guards (just run and
    jump as the Firebar will not hit you), and then drop to the floor first
    chance you get.  Now you should jump onto the next ledge immediately, and
    then you should head right until you see a high path and the low path (take
    the high path to advance).
    
    Now you will see Bowser's flames start to come at you, so make your way past
    the five bunkers in the floor to find the bridge.  Now, go onto the bridge
    to see a Podoboo guarding the King of the Koopas, and shoot fireballs till
    Bowser dies (yet another doppelganger).  Otherwise, you should get in close
    underneath the arc of the thrown hammers, and run underneath the big bad
    Koopa King to grab the Axe Switch and finish the level!  Congratulations on
    finishing World 7!  Only one more World to go!

       and then started a new game.

    Start off my stomping the Buzzy Beetle, kicking his shell, and then
    following till the points hit 2000 in the chain before you jump the
    rebounding shell.  Go past the Piranha Plant pipe, deal with the two Green
    Koopa Troopas, run across the small gaps, jump from the bigger land section
    to clear a Green Koopa Troopa, and then take on three Goombas in a row.
    
    Jump the Piranha Plant pipe, stomp the Buzzy Beetle below when it is beside
    a pipe, do NOT kick the shell, but rather jump up near the middle of the
    ground between the two pipes to find an Invisible Block that contains a
    1-Up!

    Now head right as you go past numerous Piranha Plant pipes, Buzzy Beetles,
    and then five Green Koopa Troopas before arriving at another Piranha Plant
    pipe.  Now head past it, fight the three Buzzy Beetles, and then go over the
    small wall to where you will disable a Green Paratroopa Koopa (down to it
    inside it's shell).  then hit the Invisible Block, and then get on it to hit
    a Coin Block.

    Following this, head right to find two Green Paratroopa Koopas hopping
    toward you, and if any make it across the gaps, knock them down to their
    shells before you kick them away.  Now you will run across the small gaps,
    hit the third brick from the left to find a Starman, and then continue right
    at top speed to go through two Green Koopa Troopas, jump a gap, three
    Buzzy Beetles, up three Piranha Plant pipes (gaps between them), and then
    through a horde of Buzzy Beetles.
    
    Once you have gone over the stairs, you need to run and jump across a gap to
    a two space wide platform before jumping again to the far side.  Now hop the
    trapped Green Koopa Troopa, running full speed towards the next gap, where
    there are two ways to do this hard section.  The first is the more
    preferred method of running, jumping, and jumping immediately upon landing on
    the one square wide platform to jump again for the far side.  The other
    option is to take a running leap, but slow Mario in his descent so you can
    stop on the platform before lining up on the left edged of the platform to
    make the next jump across.
    
    Now you have crossed, so jump the four Green Koopa Troopas, the two Piranha
    Plant pipes, and then climb the hole-riddled stairs to the top, where you
    can jump for the 5000 point section on the Flagpole.
    
    
                                  o-----------o
                                  | World 8-2 |
                                  o-----------o
    
    You get a big welcoming party to start 8-2.  Two Green Paratroopa Koopas as
    well as Lakitu with his pet Spinies will attack you as you climb a
    staircase.  Upon getting over the staircase, hit the four ? blocks for
    coins, and then head under the brick row in the sky to see Lakitu leave (at
    least he left quickly).  Use the Springboard to hit a brick that contains
    the only recurring 1-Up in the game (it will be there if you die and have to
    restart the level).
    
    Now you need to go right while fighting off three Green Paratroopa Koopas,
    and you need to keep pace with the aforementioned 1-Up Mushroom moving to
    the right along the row of bricks.  Once you see a lower row of bricks, jump
    onto them to wait and receive your 1-Up (if you were too fast/too slow, it
    will not be there to be collected).
    
    Now head right past the gaps and the Bullet Bill cannon to find a Green
    Paratroopa Koopa with a dual Bullet Bill cannon further along.  Jump past
    them to find  a Power-Up in the second brick you will see (just watch out
    for the Green Paratroopa Koopa), and then go past the Bullet Bill cannon on
    your right.  The next section has a Buzzy Beetle between a Bullet Bill
    cannon (already mentioned), and a ground level Bullet Bill cannon.  Just go
    atop the bricks to avoid that, and then the next section has two Buzzy
    Beetles between the Bullet Bill ground cannon and a tall Bullet Bill cannon
    (the second brick from the left has a Coin Block here).
    
    Now continue right over the Piranha Plant pipe to fight a Green Paratroopa
    Koopa, another Piranha Plant pipe, and another hard jump.  For this jump you
    can get down on the first one block wide platform, get to the very edge of
    it, and then run over the small gap to the second one block wide platform
    where you hop across the gap to the other side.  You can also run between
    the two Piranha Plants, take a low leap onto the second Piranha plant pipe,
    and then take a huge leap off of it to clear the wide gap (this way requires
    a fair amount of skill).
    
    Now that you are across the gap, you can go down the first Piranha Plant
    pipe (your time will be low of likeliness, so skip it), and then head right
    past the next Piranha Plant pipe (where the Bonus Room sends you back into
    the level) to fight three Green Paratroopa Koopas with a Bullet Bill cannon
    to complicate things further.
    
    Jump the gap, fight the two Goombas from the mini-stairs, and then go over
    the dual Bullet Bill cannon below to fight a Green Paratroopa Koopa.  Now
    you should carefully climb the rather shoddy stairs (jump the gaps
    carefully) to reach the top, where you can take a hug running leap for the
    top of the Flagpole.
    
    
                                  o-----------o
                                  | World 8-3 |
                                  o-----------o
    
    Jump the Bullet Bill cannon, take care of the Green Paratroopa Koopa, and
    then hop the tall Bullet Bill cannon as you head right to find a Piranha
    Plant pipe.  After going past it, two Hammer Brothers will attack, and I
    suggest you fight them (reason to be explained below).  Upon defeating the
    pair, get onto the bottom row of bricks, and then hit the second from the
    right brick above to reveal a Power-Up!

      |  |  |  |  |  |  |  |  |
      +--+--+--+--+--+--+--+--+
    
    Now after you have collected the Power-Up (likely a Super Mushroom), head
    right over the gap to the descending stairs, where another gap needs to be
    hopped across.  A Bullet Bill cannon, followed by a Green Paratroopa Koopa
    greet you, and then you should head right to find a wall in the way.  Jump
    the wall to mess with Hammer Brothers set #2!  Take them out, and then get
    onto the lower row of bricks, and hit the second from the left brick to
    reveal a Power-Up (hopefully you are still Super Mario, so you can become
    Fiery Mario!).
    
      +--+--+--+--+--+--+--+--+
      |  |PU|  |  |  |  |  |  |

      |  |  |  |  |  |  |  |  |
      +--+--+--+--+--+--+--+--+
    
    Jump onto the Piranha Plant, jump down to the platform below, stomp the
    Green Koopa Troopa so you can kick the shell and follow it as it plows
    through Hammer Brothers set #3!  If you have Fire Flower Power on your side,
    just shoot the Green Koopa Troopa, move forward slowly so you can shoot the
    two aforementioned Hammer Brothers.  Now jump the Piranha Plant pipe to
    tangle with Hammer Brothers set #4!  If you have fireballs, just shoot them
    as you go along, but if you are not Fiery Mario, you need to get in close to
    the Hammer Brothers (inside the arc of their hammers), and then run
    underneath them as they jump in the air.
    
    Once you are approaching the end of the brick wall behind you, keep an eye
    out for a yellow line that looks to be out of place, and start to hit it as
    it is a Coin Block!  Now jump up the barely there stairs to reach the ledge
    at the top, which you will of course jump off at full speed in an attempt to
    get yourself 5000 points!  You have arrived at your final destination,
    Bowser's last fortress!  He has to be inside, so go get him Mario!
    
    
                                  o-----------o
                                  | World 8-4 |
                                  o-----------o
    
    This fortress is a castle with a maze like system to it.  However, this one
    differs from the previous mazes you were in as you do not have to walk on
    certain levels of the floor in certain parts, but you must pick the proper
    pipes to go down.  If you choose the wrong one, you may end up right near
    the start of the level instead of going forward!  This walkthrough will list
    only the pipes that lead forward, so you are warned not to go exploring
    other pipes if you want to reach the end!
    
    Walk to the bottom step, jump the lava pit, jump the Piranha Plant pipe, and
    run right to hop another Piranha Plant pipe to fight three Buzzy Beetles.
    Next you have to use a horizontally moving ledge over a lava pit to get
    across, and then go down the first Piranha Plant pipe you see to advance to
    the next section.
    
    Head right past the Piranha Plant pipe to find two Buzzy Beetles (better to
    avoid them), another Piranha Plant pipe, and then two Green Paratroopa
    Koopas.  Following that up is another Piranha Plant pipe, a jump over a lava
    pit, and two charging Green Paratroopa Koopas while you hit an invisible
    Block.  Go on top of the Invisible Block, jump onto the floating Piranha
    Plant pipe when the Piranha Plant is out of the way, and then go down the
    pipe to get to the next section of the castle.

     |
    
    You will reappear in a new section of the castle where flying Red
    Cheep-Cheeps will start to bombard you with their bodies.  Head right past
    the first two Piranha plant pipes you will see, across the lava pit, and
    then down the first Piranha plant pipe you come across to get to the next
    section of the castle.
    
    This section of the castle is underwater, so swim carefully.  You will have
    to contend with not only normal underwater villains like Bloopers, but
    Firebars will also rear their ugly selves as well.
    
    Swim right (ignore the opening above) to wait for a Firebar to move to the
    11 O'Clock position before going to the bottom of the chamber.  Now head
    right to walk underneath another Firebar as it hits the 3 O'Clock position,
    and then swim through the enclosed passage the next Firebar guards when it
    moves to an 8 O'Clock position.  Now you should walk carefully across the
    bottom of the chamber underneath the two Firebars (not to mention the
    Bloopers) to the wall, which you should swim up to the pipe exit as the
    Firebar hits the 3 O'Clock position to move onto the LAST section of the
    castle!
    
    You come out of a Piranha Plant pipe to head right over another Piranha
    Plant pipe to find a lone Hammer Brother!  There are two good ways to deal
    with this deranged hammer-throwing opponent and those are the following.
    The more tried and true method is to wait inside the arc of the hammers, and
    when the Hammer Brother jumps into the air, run underneath to launch
    yourself across the lava pit (try not to hit the Podoboo that shoots out of
    there) to the final platform.  The other way to do this is to stand on the
    left edge of the Piranha Plant pipe, and just play the waiting game.
    Eventually the Hammer Brother will get mad at you, and he will charge in
    your direction (continuing to throw hammers and jump).  Your job is to leap
    over him, leap the lava pit (watching out for the Podoboo that shoots out of
    there) to land on the final platform.
    
    Moving to the right will bring Bowser flames your way, and once you get here,
    use your fireballs to roast the true Bowser, and send him flying into the
    lava pit to pay for his crimes.  Oh wait, you are a normal player, so you
    have no Fire Flower Power?  In that case, get in close so the hammers clear
    your head, and then run underneath Bowser to get the Axe Switch.  Another
    common method of getting by Bowser here is if you are Super Mario/Fiery
    Mario, you can just run into Bowser to get hurt, which means you are
    invulnerable (and still able to get the Axe Switch unimpeded).
    
    Go to the right to find the Princess Toadstool waiting to thank you for your
    hard work on saving the Mushroom Kingdom, but you also get the offer of
    pressing START to get a more difficult quest!  Anyway, Congratulations on
    succeeding in your journey to rescue Princess Toadstool, and for returning
    peace to the Mushroom Kingdom yet again!
    
    ----------------------------------------------------------------------------
    -----------------------------------Items------------------------------------
    ----------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    22)This section will look at the items that will help Mario on his quest to
       rescue Princess Toadstool.
    
    
                                  o------------o
                                  | Gold Coins |
                                  o------------o
    
    These common items are found in groupings that range from two all the way to
    forty in some Bonus Rooms.  They are also acquired from ? blocks, bricks,
    and Coin Blocks (multiple coins).  After collecting 100 Gold Coins, you will
    gain an extra man.  You gain 200 points per coin.
    
    
                                o----------------o
                                | Super Mushroom |
                                o----------------o
    
    These appear from ? blocks and from bricks.  They will rise from their
    hiding place, and once they are out, they will start to move to the right,
    and keep going till they hit a wall (they turn around), or fall off a cliff.
    If you Collect one, they will cause Mario to grow in size to become big or
    "Super" Mario.  This will allow Mario to be hit and not be killed (he will
    revert to small or "Regular" Mario).  You gain 1000 points per Mushroom.
    
    
                                 o-------------o
                                 | Fire Flower |
                                 o-------------o
    
    If you are Super Mario, and you hit a block that contains a Power-Up (the
    same blocks give Mushrooms/Flowers), you will have a Fire Flower sprout from
    the block.  Once collected, it will cause Mario to change his outfit to red
    and white, and he will gain the ability to throw fireballs at his opponents.
    One hit form an enemy will cause Fire Mario to revert to Regular Mario.  You
    gain 1000 points per flower.
    
    
                                   o---------o
                                   | Starman |
                                   o---------o
    
    These stars will give Mario the ability to run through any enemy that gets
    in his way.  This effect lasts for only a few seconds, so make good use of
    this when you get it.  No way to find these in a Fortress, so Podoboos and
    Firbars remain unkillable.  You gain 1000 points per star.
    
    
                               o---------------o
                               | 1-Up Mushroom |
                               o---------------o
    
    These are usually hidden in invisible blocks, although a few are contained
    within regular bricks.  The physics of their movements are identical to that
    of a Super Mushroom, but instead of changing Mario into Super Mario, this
    little beauty will grant Mario an extra life!  No points for this Mushroom.
    
    
                                   o-------o
                                   | Vines |
                                   o-------o
    
    Found in only a few levels, these are contained within bricks just  waiting
    to take you to an area above the level.  Mostly you will go to Coin Heaven,
    but one will lead to a special area...  No points for unleashing a vine.
    
    
                                o-------------o
                                | Springboard |
                                o-------------o
    
    These are found in a few levels, and they help you get to heights that a
    normal jump could not do.  They are there to help make your travels easier,
    but you do not need to use them (see Weird Happenings section for reason on
    this).

       killing them off.  Keep in mind that shell kicks will kill all enemies
       that live outside of water (not certain fortress enemies however).

    Appearance.........: A white jellyfish like fellow who will swim in somewhat
                         erratic patterns.  They are found in underwater levels
                         only, and they can not reach Mario if he stands on the
                         bottom of the water area.
    
    Methods For Killing: Use a fireball to get them, and this is the only way to
                         rid yourself of them.
    
    Point Value........: 200 points.
    
    
                       o----------------------------o
                       | Bowser, King Of The Koopas |
                       o----------------------------o
    
    Appearance........: A large, spiky-shelled, turtle with some lethal fire
                         breath.  Bowser hangs out in a fortress at the end of
                         every World, and he will start to shoot flames at you
                         in an attempt to fry you when you draw close to his
                         hiding place.  Be warned though, that what Mario sees,
                         might not be the truth...
    
    Methods For Killing: The main way is to grab the Axe Switch behind him to
                         send Bowser plummeting into the lava, but fireballs can
                         be used to kill him (or the fake pretending to be him).
    
    Point Value........: 5000 points for fireball execution, 0 points otherwise.
    
    
                              o-------------o
                              | Bullet Bill |
                              o-------------o
    
    Appearance.........: These black-shelled bullets fly in a straight line,
                         trying to gun you down.  They are usually launched out
                         of cannons, but they can also be found in some levels
                         where they fire at all heights on the level.
    
    Methods For Killing: Jump on top of them to wipe them out, or use an
                         Invincibility Star.
    
    Point Value........: 200 points.

                              | Buzzy Beetle |
                              o--------------o
    
    Appearance.........: Black shelled insects, they will walk in a straight line
                         until they have a reason to turn (like a wall or an
                         enemy).
    
    Methods For Killing: Stomping will cause retreating into the shell, but only
                         an Invincibility Star will finish them permanently.
    
    Point Value........: 100 points for stomping them, followed by 100 points
                         (200 if Mario does not touch the ground) for kicking the
                         shell.  200 points are recieved for an Invincibility
                         Star kill.

                               o----------o
    
    Appearance.........: A group of red-hot fireballs joined together to put the
                         hurt on you as they swing in a clockwise or
                         counter-clockwise direction.  These things can sometimes
                         be joined together to form extra long versions of the
                         normal ones.
    
    Methods For Killing: These can not be killed under any circumstances.
    
    Point Value........: 0 points.

                                o--------o
    
    Appearance.........: A small brown mushroom that has been contaminated by
                         Bowser to serve his purposes.  They walk in a straight
                         line till they have a reason to turn (like a wall or an
                         enemy in their way), or they will fall off a cliff.
    
    Methods For Killing: Jump on them, shoot them with fireballs, kick a shell
                         at them, and run them over while using an Invincibility
                         Star.
    
    Point Value........: 100 points.

                          o-------------------o
    
    Appearance.........: Green fish that swim in a slow, steady pace across the
                         screen right to left.
    
    Methods For Killing: Fireballs are the only way to kill this opponent.
    
    Point Value........: 200 points.

                         | Green Koopa Troopa |
                         o--------------------o
    
    Appearance.........: A turtle with a green shell.  They will walk in a
                         straight line until they have a reason to turn (like a
                         wall or an enemy in the way), or they will fall off a
                         cliff.
    
    Methods For Killing: A stomp will knock them back into their shell, but they
                         will return in a short amount of time.  Fireballs will
                         kill them totally, as will an Invincibility Star.
    
    Point Value........: 100 points (an additional 100 points or 200 points for
                         kicking the shell).  The 200 points is dependent upon
                         jumping on them once, and then kicking the empty shell
                         without touching the ground.
    
    
                        o------------------------o
                        | Green Paratroopa Koopa |
                        o------------------------o
    
    Appearance.........: These are winged green-shelled turtles that bounce
                         their way happily forward.  They will bounce in a
                         straight line until they have a reason to turn (like a
                         wall or an enemy in the way), or they will fall off a
                         cliff.  They will also fly horizontal flight patterns
                         on level 7-3.
    
    Methods For Killing: Stomping kill cause a loss of wings, then a retreating
                         into the shell, and then kicking.  Fireballs will kill
                         them off no matter what stage they are in, as will an
                         Invincibility Star.
    
    Point Value........: 400 points for removing wings, 100 points for
                         retreating them into their shell, and 100 points for
                         kicking the shell (400 if it is done without hitting
                         the ground).

                           | Hammer Brothers |
                           o-----------------o
    
    Appearance.........: These shelled turtles stand upright, and they throw
                         multiple hammers at you.  They often appear in twos,
                         and they will usually be on a three tier platform
                         system (two ledges and the ground).  They will
                         occasionally appear in a solo format, and they are not
                         always on the ledge system (they may just stand on the
                         ground, blocking your way).  They will charge at you if
                         you stand there for a while staring at them, so try to
                         get by them.
    
    Methods For Killing: Stomp on them (not recommended as they throw multiple
                         hammers overhead), hit the platform from below when they
                         are above you, and use fireballs on them.  Invincibility
                         Stars work as well.
    
    Point Value........: 1000 points for regular kills, 500 points for a shell
                         kick kill.

                              o--------o
    
    Appearance.........: A fellow riding in a cloud.  He does not directly
                         attack you (although direct contact will hurt you), but
                         instead he throws his "pet" Spiny at you.
    
    Methods For Killing: Shoot with a fireball, or jump on top of him.
    
    Point Value........: 800 points for jumping on him, 200 points for
                         fireballing him.

    Appearance.........: These ravenous plants will duck in and out of the
                         pipes of the land, but not if you are beside/on top of
                         the pipe.
    
    Methods For Killing: Fireballs are the primary method of killing them, but
                         an Invincibility Star will also do.
    
    Points.............: 200 points.

                               o----------o
    
    Appearance.........: These fireballs will fly out of pits of lava in the
                         fortresses at the end of every world.  up and down is
                         all that they can manage, but they should still be
                         enough to catch Mario unaware.
    
    Methods For Killing: These can not be killed under any circumstances.
    
    Point Value........: 0 points.

                            o-----------------o
    
    Appearance.........: Like their brethren, they swim a straight line right to
                         left across the screen, but they do it much more
                         quickly, giving Mario less time to react.  They also
                         take to the skies with their wings on two levels in this
                         game.
    
    Methods For Killing: Fireballs are the only way to kill this opponent
                         underwater, but in the air fireballs and stomping will
                         work.
    
    Point Value........: 200 points.

    Appearance.........: A turtle with a red shell.  They will walk in a straight
                         line till they hit the end of their ledge, at which
                         point they will turn around to patrol to the other end
                         of their ledge.
    
    Methods For Killing: A stomp will knock them back into their shell, but they
                         will return in a short amount of time.  Fireballs will
                         kill them totally, as will an Invincibility Star.
    
    Point Value........: 100 points (an additional 100 points or 200 points for
                         kicking the shell).  The 200 points is dependent upon
                         jumping on them once, and then kicking the empty shell
                         without touching the ground.

                          o----------------------o
    
    Appearance.........: These winged turtles will fly up and down vertically on
                         a set pattern.  They patrol specific areas, most of which
                         are usually over cliffs.
    
    Methods For Killing: Stomping kill cause a loss of wings, then a retreating
                         into the shell, and then kicking.  Fireballs will kill
                         them off no matter what stage they are in, as will an

                         retreating them into their shell, and 100 points for
                         kicking the shell (400 if it is done without hitting the
                         ground).

    Appearance.........: red four-legged creatures that will come at Mario.  If
                         they change to a new platform, they will go in whatever
                         direction Mario is found.
    
    Methods For Killing: Fireballs are the only way to kill them.
    
    Point Value........: 200 points.

    ----------------------------Fighting Bowser---------------------------------
    ----------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    24) This section will look at how Bowser fights, and how a player should
        approach the battle based on Mario's status as well as Bowser's status.
    
    
                          o------------------------o
                          | General Bowser Tactics |
                          o------------------------o
    
    -Bowser always uses one for sure attack, and that is to spit flames down the
     hallway as Mario draws near to his hiding place within the castle.  He will
     often pick a spot where Mario has just made a difficult leap, trying to
     catch Mario unaware.  Make your way to the right past this cautiously, and
     be sure to make use of any bunkers in the flooring so you can get to the
     King of the Koopas unscorched.
    
    
                         o--------------------------o
                         | Regular Mario VS. Bowser |
                         o--------------------------o
    
    -Mario will approach these battles very cautiously as one hit will mean the
     end of him.  Approach the bridge slowly, checking to see if any Podoboos or
     Firebars are present to help Bowser.  Then you should move in close to
     Bowser, and then do one of two options.  Option one is the more popular
     one, which is to leave enough room between Bowser and Mario so Mario can
     hop any flames sent his way as well as having running room.  When Bowser
     jumps in the air, Mario should start to run forward and take a flying leap
     past the falling Bowser, which will allow Mario to pull the Axe Switch.
     The second option involves a little more daring as Mario needs to be in
     real close to Bowser, and as soon as Bowser hops into the air, quickly
     Mario should zip underneath the giant turtle to pull the Axe Switch.
    
    
                          o------------------------o
                          | Super Mario VS. Bowser |
                          o------------------------o
    
    -Mario can utilize the jump over technique listed above quite well as Super
     Mario, but the underneath one does not work very well at all.
    
    -Some levels have bricks that forma passage partially past Bowser, so bust
     them to take the partial shortcut to the Axe Switch.
    
    -Another common way to get past Bowser in this form is to just run right
     into him, causing Mario to revert to Regular Mario, but also rendering him
     temporarily invincible.  The player should just keep heading right to grab
     the Axe Switch.
    
    
                          o------------------------o
                          | Fiery Mario VS. Bowser |
                          o------------------------o
    
    -Simply put, stay a good distance away while throwing non-stop heaters until
     Bowser changes into one of his troops (these are doppelgangers).
    
    
                   o---------------------------------------o
                   | Regular Mario VS. Bowser With Hammers |
                   o---------------------------------------o
    
    -You thought you had it tough before, but now Bowser throws his hammers in
     large groups to try and get you as well!  Now you should approach, get
     inside the arc of hammers he throws, and when he hops up, run underneath him
     to reach the Axe Switch.
    
    -Another option (although much harder) is to get inside his arc of hammers,
     and then jump through a break in his throwing.  The main problem with this
     method is that he has no definite pattern upon which to base your decision
     to jump through (you must have great reaction time, or a lot of luck).
    
    
                    o-------------------------------------o
                    | Super Mario VS. Bowser With Hammers |
                    o-------------------------------------o
    
    -Try to make use of the two strategies listed for REGULAR MARIO vs. BOWSER
     WITH HAMMERS, but you have one ace up your sleeve.  You can get hit, and
     still make it to the Axe Switch.
    
    -Another common way to get past Bowser in this form is to just run right
     into him, causing Mario to revert to Regular Mario, but also rendering him
     temporarily invincible.  The player should just keep heading right to grab
     the Axe Switch.  This is an intentional run into Bowser, as opposed to the

    25)This section will give a map of all the bonus rooms that can be found in
       the many pipes of the Mushroom Kingdom.
    
    
    a) This Bonus Room is the most simplistic in design, and it gives you a nice
       amount of coins (19 to be exact).

       All you need to do is grab the Gold Coins and then leave.
    
    
    b) This Bonus Room is another simply designed ones that offers not only a
       fair amount of Gold Coins (17 coins to be exact), but it also gives
       access to a Coin Block as well.

       For fastest pick-up, jump up to the higher ledge, run right as you grab
       the top eight coins found there, then collect the bottom row of nine
       coins, and use the Coin Block at the end before taking your leave.
    
    
    c) This Bonus Room require Mario to be at least Super Mario to reap the full
       benefits of the room.  You get some coins (12 to be exact), as well as
       a Power-Up.

       This Bonus Room was called the "Professor" by myself when I was young,
       and you will see why when you finish it.  Bust the two most left-most
       bricks, jump up to collect the two coins, punch the brick above the
       second coin to release the Power-Up, and then collect the Power-Up.  Next
       you will get the six coins on top of the structure, and then go down to
       the bottom where you break the bricks underneath the coins remaining
       before exiting.  As for the Professor look, mimic the bricks broken on
       the other side (symmetrically) to see the Professor. ;)
    
    
    d) This Bonus Room has a decent amount of coins (18 to be exact), as well as
       a Power-Up.  This room requires the use of the Crouching Slide if you are
       Super Mario or higher, and you can only access the Power-Up as Regular
       Mario.

       Collect the bottom row of coins, use the Crouching Slide (or just walk
       under if Regular Mario), to get the bottom row of coins, and then grab the
       Power-Up if you are Regular Mario, or use the following technique if you
       are Super/Fiery Mario.  Destroy the bottom two bricks on both ends with
       the crouching slide, then go to the left, take a run at the pipe, and then
       crouch down and jump just before hitting the pipe.  Provided you did it
       right, you will go under the block, so jump quickly as your momentum might
       carry you past the brick.  Either way, take your leave through the pipe.
    
    
    e) This Bonus Room is perhaps the most difficult to collect every single
       coin out of it without a serious investment in time.  If you get
       proficient at it, you can make lost of money here, but it takes practice
       first.  You have a small amount of coins available (10 to be exact), but
       the Room contains a Coin Block for you as well!

    Upon falling into the vault area here, go right to stand on top of the exit
    pipe, punch the Coin Block (around 15 coins if done fast), jump on top of
    the room with the coins, jump to the far left wall (the top of it), turn
    around, and do a half-jump at the room to fall right into it for the ten
    coins before you head for the exit.

                          then hopping onto the top of the ceiling, Mario can
                          then run to the right to get to the Warp Zone.  The
                          following will give an idea of what is needed to

    Found Where.........: Level 4-2
    
    Warps To What Worlds: 6, 7, 8
    
    How To Access.......: This is strange to have this warp before the Warp for
                          World 5 (see Warp Zone #3 for details on it), but the
                          reason is that it is hidden in the middle of this
                          level.  Once you find the first elevator, cross it,
                          and then you need to hit some invisible blocks to make
                          steps so you can make a Vine appear to carry you up to
                          the Warp Zone.  The following diagrams will help to
                          explain the exact steps involved:

    --------------------------------1-Up Methods--------------------------------
    ----------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    27)This section will give some locations in the game to gain lives through
       special and normal techniques.
    
    
    a) The most obvious is to find a 1-Up Mushroom.  These can be obtained in
       the following levels (but sometimes they are not there for an unknown
       reason at this time): 1-1, 1-2, 2-1 (sometimes there), 3-1 (sometimes
       there), 4-1 (sometimes there), 5-1 (sometimes there), 6-1 (sometimes),
       7-1 (sometimes), 8-1 (sometimes there), and 8-2 (always there 
       repeatedly).  If you know of any others, e-mail me about it, and 
       include a screenshot for me to base my verification around 
       (briansulpher@hotmail.com).
    
    b) 100 Gold Coins can also get you a 1-Up.
    
    c) Kicking a Koopa Troopa shell through a line of enemies can also gain
       multiple lives.  The order of points go: 500, 800, 1000, 2000, 5000,
       8000, and then a 1-Up for every enemy after that.  This is useful in
       only a few levels, but it is a technique that should be utilized by
       Mario as often as possible.
    
    d) A variation on the Koopa Troopa shell kick is by using a block formation
       (usually on a stairwell at the end of a level), Mario could jump on a
       shell, and as it rebounded, Mario would land on it.  This would continue
       for a bit through the same point values as listed above in C), and then
       1-Ups would occur.  The most famous example of this method is on World
       3-1, but there are other levels that this work on as well.  They are the
       following: 5-1, 5-2, 6-1, 7-1, and 8-2 (these all occur at the end of the
       level on the stairwell).  Keep in mind that most of these have Green
       Paratroopa Koopas that need to be de-winged, retreated into their
       shells, and they have to come to a rest on a block with space below to
       stand on.  The following diagram will show how to go about getting the
       multiple 1-Ups (using World 3-1):

                            +--+--+--+ Mario arrives at the staircase, and he
                            |  |  |  | will get onto the stairwell (bottom step
                         +--+--+--+--+ is easiest to get to).  Now Mario can get
                         |  |  |  |  | ready for FIGURE TWO.

                      +--+--+--+--+--+ Koopa Troopa will be retreated into it's
                      |  |  |  |  |  | shell, and the shell will be kicked.  The
                   +--+--+--+--+--+--+ shell should stop on the same step

                      +--+--+--+--+--+ c)), and then 1-Ups will start to ring
                      |  |  |  |  |  | in. At some point, Mario will stop doing
                   +--+--+--+--+--+--+ this, so he should jump back on for more
           MP      |  |  |  |  |  |  | chances.

       Keep in mind that this is the best area of doing this, but it can be
       achieved on the other levels.  Also keep in mind that the maximum number
       of lives a player is allowed is 127.  If a player goes above 127, the
       next time they die, their game will be over.  This occurs because for data
       storage on this cartridge, the values for lives remaining is formatted in
       the following scale: -128 to 127.  Now you start the game with a value of
       3, and with each 1-Up that value increases by 1.  If you Increase your
       value past the highest of 127 (128 lives), and once you move one more
       life into that total, you value for lives will turn over into the minuses
       as -128.  Normally this would mean that when you lost a live next, you
       would go back to a value of 127, but that is not so on the NES cart.
    
       How it works is to check the value of your life total.  If it scans and
       finds the total to be less than 0, you r game will end.  So this means
       that if you go past the value of 127 (128 lives), and you enter into -127
       or higher (129 or higher), the game will deem that your life value is
       below 0, and despite the life total being that high, the game will give
       you the game over screen.

    ----------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    28)This section will look at how the Flagpole scoring works, how the time
       remaining is totaled up, and how the Fireworks are caused/scored.
    
    
                                o------------------o
                                | Flagpole Scoring |
                                o------------------o
    
    The following points can be scored upon the Flagpole: 100 points, 200
    points, 400 points, 800 points, 2000 points, and 5000 points.  The point
    total is decided by how high up the Flagpole you grab it when you jump onto
    it.  The following diagram will give an idea of where the point zones are
    located on the Flagpole:
    
                   _
                  (_)
                  /|

                 |   |
    -------------+---+
    
    If you are jumping from the ground level, the scores that are possible to
    achieve are 100 points, 200 points, 400 points, and the highest which is 800
    points.  If you jump off of a higher structure (like the staircase or a
    platform), you can reach the higher sections to get 2000 points or 5000
    points with a good jump.
    
    
                            o------------------------o
                            | Time Remaining Scoring |
                            o------------------------o
    
    When you hit the Flagpole, the time remaining on the timer will be used to
    give your time bonus for the level.  You will get an equation as follows:
    
    -------------------+
    Key                |
                       |
    z = time remaining |
    y = total bonus    |
                       |
    -------------------+
    
           z  X  50 points  =  50z points
    
    EXAMPLE
    
         300  X  50 points  =  15000  points
    
    Your bonus is multiplied by 50 points with your time remaining to get your
    time bonus.  This means that busting every single brick you come across in a
    level will NOT get you extra points (as busting bricks is worth 50 points
    per busted bricks), but taking the time to kick a turtle shell through a
    line of enemies, stomping multiple enemies without hitting the ground, and
    Power-Ups/Invincibility Stars are worth collecting because they gain more
    points than you are losing on the timer.
    
    
                                 o-----------o
                                 | Fireworks |
                                 o-----------o
    
    Fireworks are worth 500 points a pop, and they sometime get fired off after
    you liberate a level from the enemy forces (you take their flag down, and
    fly the star symbolizing liberation).  The appearances of the Fireworks is
    not random, rather it is based upon your time remaining when you grab the
    Flagpole.  If your time remaining has a 1, 3, or 6 in the ones column, you
    will receive the same amount of Fireworks.  See the following for
    clarification:
    
       ===========
       EXAMPLE ONE
       ===========
    
    Time Remaining: 261
    Number Of Fireworks: One
    Extra Points: 500
    
       ===========
       EXAMPLE TWO
       ===========
    
    Time Remaining: 243
    Number Of Fireworks: Three
    Extra Points: 1500
    
      =============
      EXAMPLE THREE
      =============
    
    Time Remaining: 286
    Number Of Fireworks: Six
    Extra Points: 3000
    
    A quick tip now for getting the Six Fireworks for when you launch off of the
    high ledge/staircase top so you get the Six Fireworks.  Start your run when
    the time remaining in the ones column is at 0.  You should hit the Flagpole
    when the time remaining has a six in the ones column.

    29)This section will impart the knowledge necessary for continuing on the
       same World that you died on.
    
    
    a) After getting the Game Over screen, you will return to the Player select
       screen.
    
    b) Instead of Pressing START to go again from World 1-1, instead hold DOWN,
       the A Button, and then press START.
    
    c) You will then start on the first level of the last world you were playing
       on.

    -----------------------------Weird Happenings-------------------------------
    ----------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    30)This section will look at a few strange glitches that can be performed in
       various sections of the game.
    
    
    a) Possibly the most well known and heralded of all of these weird
       happenings, glitches, tricks, etc. is the Minus World.  This trick is
       achieved in World 1-2, and it is done right by the pipe that goes to the
       staircase that is at the end of the level.  Now, you need to be at a
       level of Super Mario at least (one can be found in the string of bricks
       between the two elevators just before the area of the glitch), and then
       you need to do the following steps:

    Now, you might wonder what all of this means, and I will explain it below.
    
                                    ==========
                                    FIGURE ONE
                                    ==========
    
    Mario arrives at the end of level pipe exit to the staircase.  Instead of
    leaving the level, Mario will stand on the edge of the pipe.
    
                                    ==========
                                    FIGURE TWO
                                    ==========
    
    Mario will proceed to jump up and bust the second and third bricks away from
    the pipe (going to the right).
    
                                   ============
                                   FIGURE THREE
                                   ============
    
    Now you should move Mario to the far left edge of the pipe, and duck down.
    Then you should jump into the air, and move right towards the bottom left
    corner of the pipe.  If this is lined up correctly, Mario will enter the
    brick.
    
                                    ===========
                                    FIGURE FOUR
                                    ===========
    
    Mario will continue to move to the right through the pipe, and he will be
    deposited into the room where the three pipes are located for the Warp Zone
    for Worlds 2, 3, and 4.
    
                                    ===========
                                    FIGURE FIVE
                                    ===========
    
    Now you should jump on top of the first pipe you see, and go down it before
    the screen scrolls and the text WELCOME TO THE WAP ZONE appears.  This will
    take you to the Minus World.  Alternately, you can also take the third pipe
    in the Warp Zone to reach the Minus World as well, but the second pipe will
    deposit you into World 5.
    
       The Minus World is nothing more than World 2-2 (underwater level), that
       will start again when you go through the exit pipe (instead of taking you
       to the staircase exit).  Since you can not quite grab enough coins on one
       man to gain an extra life, you can not stay in the Minus World
       infinitely, but you can go for a fairly long time.  Not a useful glitch,
       but a very fun one to perform to amaze your friends (like ANYONE stills
       plays this, and does not know about this glitch, but anyway...).
    
    b) This glitch is known as the Small, Fiery Mario Glitch.  This can be
       accomplished on any fortress of any world.  All you need to do is to get
       to Bowser in the castle while you are at least Super Mario.  Now you need
       to get by Bowser without getting hit, and then you should stand right
       next to the block where the Ax Switch is located.  Now that Bowser is
       drawing near, wait till Bowser is about to touch Mario, and then jump up
       in the air, move slightly to the right so Mario will be partly over
       Bowser and the Ax Switch.  When Mario lands, he should hit Bowser and the
       Ax Switch at the same time (you will know it worked as Mario will flash,
       but stay as Super Mario).  Mario will win the level, and then he will
       enter the next World as normal except if he gets hit, he will die!  Now
       find a Power-Up, it will be a Super Mushroom (instead of a Fire Flower
       like you would expect).  Upon collecting the Super Mushroom, you will
       shrink to small Mario (but if you get hit, you will revert to big Mario).
       Keep going along to the next Power-Up to release a Fire Flower, which
       will make you Fiery Mario while small!  Now when you throw fireballs,
       Mario will grow large to throw the fireballs before shrinking once more.
       This effect will continue till you die.
    
       The reason that all the effects occur are as follows: 1) Mario is counted
       as getting hit when landing on Bowser, but since he also finishes the
       level, the game has already started to show the usual sequence (including
       their scanning of your current sprite for the graphics).  2) Upon
       starting the next level, you are counted as small despite your size, so
       if you get hit, you will die.  3) Upon collecting the Super Mushroom,
       Mario will become small since the Super Mushroom is programmed to switch
       the sprite for Mario (since he is already big Mario sprite, it puts him
       to small Mario).  4) If he gets hit, he will revert to big Mario despite
       getting hit as small Mario (you get hit, you revert to Regular Mario, but
       the sprite order is messed up, so big Mario it is).  5) Upon collecting
       the Fire Flower, you will throw fireballs as the regular Fiery Mario
       sprite before returning to small, Fiery Mario (this is simply due to no
       sprite for small Mario throwing fireballs).  This is a fun glitch to
       perform, and it can really change the way you play the game.
    
    c) The Thank You Dead Mario Glitch is an altered version of the glitch
       listed above.  It involves being Regular Mario, get behind Bowser, do the
       Axe Switch/Bowser jump, Regular Mario will fly off the screen as dead,
       but the screen will scroll anyway to Toad.  Toad will thank no one for
       helping, and then the next level will begin.  Since you are dead, the
       game will register you as dead, and then the screen will show your lives
       before inserting Mario into the level (less one life).
    
    d) Vine Dancing Mario is not a really cool thing, but it is quite easy to do.
       When Mario climbs a Vine to the top of it, go on the left side of the
       Vine, and keep holding UP.  Mario will suddenly begin to dance on the
       Vine.
    
    e) A Bonus Room along the way (in two locations that I know of) in your
       journey are not actually a help, but rather a threat.  You will enter an
       underwater area with enemies, suction pits, elevators (to knock you down
       the suction pits), and some coins.  This something that really surprises
       you the first time you hit it.
    
    f) If Mario jumps onto a pipe that he can go down, and he does so as a
       Piranha Plant is going down into the pipe (at least one quarter of the
       way in is needed) to have Mario go in unharmed.  This is hard to master,
       but it becomes useful on shorter timed levels, or long levels that need
       some extra speed done in them.
    
    g) Sometimes a Springboard will appear not to be there on the screen.  If
       this occurs, and you jump on to use said Springboard, you will become
       permanently stuck until the timer runs down on you!  If you see this
       oddity, DO NOT step onto the Springboard, but rather find another way
       around the area.  This explains why every Springboard in the game has an
       alternate way around (jumps are makable without, 2-2 has Invisible Block
       for getting over the wall), and World 6-3 can be bypassed with running
       leaps.
    
    h) Not so much a glitch, but rather an unintentional mistake, Mario can in
       fact jump the flagpole on one level.  In World 3-3, Mario will find a
       pulley platform set near the flagpole, which he should stand on the left
       platform and wait for the platform to reach the lowest spot it can before
       it breaks, at which point he should take a running leap to the now higher
       ledge and then across the large gap to just clear the flagpole!
    
    i) When in Worlds 2-2 and 7-2, there are a few pieces of Pink Seaweed that
       are growing towards the top of the water, but stop just one space below
       the surface.  Get Mario on top of this and press the A Button, which
       will cause the swimming noise to occur, but Mario will stand perfectly
       still!  Thanks to Highway_11_North for the contribution.

       A classic to end all classics!  This one has been played by almost all
       video game players who played ANYTHING in the 1980's.  I really have
       nothing else to say about a game that most have already experienced.
