    1)STORY
    ===============================================================================
    (Taken from the Instruction Booklet)
    
    One day, while visiting Mario, Princess Toadstool was picking flowers in his
    garden...
    
    Suddenly, out if nowhere, Bowser appeared and grabbed the Princess again! (Like
    you'd expect anyone else to?)
    
    Mario hearing Toadstool's scream for help, sped off alone towards Bowser's
    Keep.
    
    After Mario trounced Bowser for the millionth time (this time they fought on
    one of Bowser's chandeliers), everyone felt Bowser's Keep beginning to shake!
    
    A HUGE sword crashed into Bowser's Keep! What's gonna happen now?

    Press the A Button if you want to do a physical attack, then select the enemy
    you want to attack then press the A button again to attack. If you want to
    cause more damage, see the Physical Attacks in the BATTLE PARTY section.
     _________________________

    Press the X Button if you want to use an item, then select the item you want to

    to use it on, then press X again to use the item. If you press the X Button at
    the right time when the item is being used you will get a "Freebie", it seems
    you can only do this once for every item, but this trick is still useful for
    rare one-time use items such as Rock Candy and Red Essence.

    |Defending|
     ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
    Press the B Button then move the cursor onto Defense and press the B Button.

     ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
    Press the B Button then move the cursor onto Run Away and press the B Button,
    you can't run away from boss battles but you can run away from normal enemy
    battles, your escape is relied on the enemies and your speed.
    
    
    ===============================================================================
    3)BATTLE PARTY
    ===============================================================================
    Here is a description of all the characters that make up your party in the
    game. At first you will only start off with Mario, but gradually more and more
    will join your party and you will be given the choice of switching between
    which three you want to use in battle.
    
    NOTE: FP means the amount of Flowers used by the special technique, Mg.P is the
          strength of the special technique and Lvl means the level that the
          character learns the technique.

    It's a Mario! The worlds most famous stereotype hmmm.. maybe that's not so
    true. If he was a common Italian-American stereotype he would live in New
    Jersey and Bowser would be sleeping with the fishes by now. Anyhow, he is the
    only character that has to be permanently in your team, so luckily he is one of
    the best characters in the game. He has brutal physical attacks and fairly
    strong special techniques; which are his trademark Fireball and Jump attacks.

    |Physical Attacks|

    Punch:  Mario simply winds up and gives the enemy a good right hook, press the
            A button just before he punches for a timed hit.
    Hammer: Mario whacks the enemy with a wooden hammer, press the A Button just
            before he swings the hammer.
    Shell:  Mario throws a shell into the air then boots it into the enemy, press

    Mallow the frog err... marshmallow. French restaurants would be more popular
    if the frogs they used looked and tasted like him. But anyway, this poor little
    chap joins Mario's party (permanently) because he finds out he's adopted and
    wants to search for his real parents! (wouldn't his parents be confectionary
    machines). Anyhow, this little piece of fluff has devastating lightning based
    attacks. He also has the very useful "Psychopath", which shows how much HP the
    enemy has and what it's thinking (if your timing's right). He also can be used
    as a healer, since he learns "HP Rain" fairly early.

    Stick:   Mallow whacks the enemy with a carved stick, press the A Button just
             before the stick makes contact for more damage.

    The protector of the Star Road named "[Heart][Note]!?", He chose to inhibit a
    doll by the name of "Geno" since it looked the strongest out of a bunch of
    dolls, including Mario and Bowser. And he chose well, Geno is one of the best
    characters in the game.

    Bowser has "bigger fish to fry!" so he teams up with Mario just this once.
    Bowser's brute strength comes very handy in Mario's adventure. He's also great
    for comic relief! God he cries a lot, he's actually a big wuss.

    Ummm... I'm surprised Toadstool doesn't get constantly sexually harassed by
    Bowser since they're in the same party. Anyhow the spoilt and awfully pink
    brat of the Mushroom Kingdom wants to prove her worth. Her main use here is
    "the healer". We couldn't have her throwing flaming skulls at the enemy, that
    would be too un-feminine.

    Parasol:    Toadstool pokes them in the eye with her parasol, press the A

    |General Questions|
     ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
    Q: Super Mario RPG, never heard of it?
    A: You must either be younger then 10 or live in a PAL territory, since this
       game has never been converted to PAL (to my knowledge).
    
    - - - - - - - - - -
    
    Q: I am a diehard RPG gamer, will I like this game?
    A: This is an extremely hard question to answer, since it relies on your
       personality. So i'll just say this: If you love RPG's but are willing to
       except slight anti-RPG elements, then yes, you will like this game.
    
    - - - - - - - - - -
    
    Q: Do you know anywhere that still sells this game?
    A: According to some sources, Funcoland and Babbages may have copies of it.
    
    - - - - - - - - - -
    
    Q: I live in a PAL territory so I got the NTSC version, but it doesn't work
       with my converter. Do you know how I can get it to work?
    A: Yes, actually I do! Super Mario RPG was released around the time Nintendo
       was getting very sneaky with imports, they put a device in Super Mario RPG
       and Super Mario World 2 which blocked the newest most up-to-date
       converters but didn't block the older out-of-date ones. So get an older
       converter (I don't like your chances of getting one). Also make sure your
       converter is FX chip compatible, The NTSC slot should look like this:
                           _________________________________
                          |IIII IIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIII IIII|
                           ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
       The four pins on either side are for the FX chip.
       I use a "Fire SNES Game Converter- Europe Version MD-909" and I get fairly
       reliable results! I also hear the Action Replay Converters work well!
    
    - - - - - - - - - -
    
    Q: Is there a hidden character?, 5 seems like a odd number.
    A: Well it is an odd number silly, but no there is no hidden character!
    
    - - - - - - - - - -
    
    Q: I heard Link (Legend of Zelda Series) and Samus Aran (Metroid Series) have
       cameos in this game?
    A: Well very small ones. Link is found by staying in the Rose Town Inn after
       getting the 2nd Star, he will be sleeping in the other bed when you wake up,
       if you talk to him he will play the Room Clear sound from most of the
       Zelda games (I don't think it's in The Adventure of Link). Samus Aran is
       found sleeping in the Guest Room inside the Mushroom Kingdom Castle after
       getting the 5th Star.
    
    - - - - - - - - - -
    
    Q: Have you hacked any Pro Action Replay codes?
    A: Well only a couple but there good! If I make more I'll create a PAR section
       or file. Note these codes haven't been *fully* tested, so use them at your
       own risk.

    Q: I was speaking to someone in the game and then the game suddenly jammed, the
       music is still playing and the screen is still animated, but Pressing "A"
       won't continue with the dialogue. What's Happening?
    A: It's not jammed, the person you are talking to wants to see Mario jump. So
       simply press the B Button.
    
    - - - - - - - - - -
    
    Q: What is a "Recovery Mushroom"?
    A: These are the Mushrooms that you get from Treasure Boxes that cause the
       screen to flash. They refill all of the Party's HP and FP.
    
    - - - - - - - - - -
    
    Q: What is a "Invincibility Star"?
    A: This Star makes Mario invincible for a short time, meaning any enemies he
       runs into will be automatically defeated and Mario will get the Ex.Pts he
       would have got for defeating them normally in a battle.
    
    - - - - - - - - - -
    
    Q: How do the Slot Machine Boxes in Land's End work?
    A: The first hit starts them up, then you have to hit them 3 more times to
       stop all the rollers, here is a table of prizes:
    
       3 Mushrooms: A Frog Coin
       3 Flowers: A Frog Coin
       3 Stars: A Frog Coin
       2 Mushrooms and a Star or a Flower: A "Recovery Mushroom"
       2 Flowers and a Mushroom or a Star: A Flower
       2 Star and a Mushroom or a Flower: A Rock Candy
       None matching: Fight with Box Boy
    
    - - - - - - - - - -
    
    Q: What are the Flowers that jump to my characters during battle after I defeat

    Q: I want to buy better Armour and Weapons but I'm flat broke, where and how
       do I accumulate Coins easily?
    A: Well I find the easiest way by far is in the Kerokero Sewers, simply walk
       around and fight as many things as possible, apart from getting Coins from
       defeating enemies (get the Coin Trick for even better results) you also are
       likely to get Pure Water from defeating Hobgoblins and Big Boos, and you
       can sell Pure Water for a massive 75 Coins. Other good places to accumulate
       coins are the Treasure Boxes in Rose Way (Enter from Rose Town not Tadpole
       Pond), By jumping on the first Wiggler in the Forest Maze and By selling the
       Goodie Bag for 555 Coins.

    Q: I can't go anywhere new and Mallow wants me to talk to Frogfucius, but all
       Frogfucius does is sulk and talks about how he needs a snack?
    A: Can you remember why Mallow needed that Frog Coin from Croco? Whoa.. I
       answered a question with a question.. freaky!
    
    - - - - - - - - - -
    
    Q: No really, I don't know what to do! Do I need to get a snack for Frogfucius?
    A: Yes, just head back to the Mushroom Kingdom Item Shop. Mallow will swap the
       Frog Coin you retrieved from Croco, for a Cricket Pie. If you give the
       Cricket Pie to Frogfucius, he will give you the Froggie Stick (which is an
       outdated weapon by now) and will open up the path to Star Way.

    Q: I want to buy all the items from Frogfucius' ex-pupil in the Seaside Town
       Elder's House, where and how do I accumulate Frog Coins easily?
    A: Well if you have access to Land's End I suggest you play Scale the Cliff
       (enter Land's End from Bean Valley to get their faster), and then practice
       until you can scale the cliff in under 11 seconds so you get 5 Frog Coins
       (see the Mini-Games section for a Strategy) or by jumping on a single
       Shogun from the sand whirlpools head 3 times in a row. If you don't have
       access to Land's End the best way to get Frog Coins is to jump onto a
       single Wiggler's back 10 times in the Forest Maze. Also you can get the
       Cricket Jam from the Kero Sewers via the smoking cave in Land's End, then
       give it to Frogfucius and he'll give you 10 Frog Coins. Also you can sell
       the Bright Card to the mushroom person standing by the entrance of the
       Marrymore Hotel for 10 Frog Coins (He will offer you 100 coins, then 5
       Frog Coins, you need to turn down both offers).

       top Pirahna Plant then jump on it, defeat it, then go down the pipe.
       Kill the gold Chomp Chomp down there then jump around this corner until you
       hear a sound, then jump 2 more times in that spot. Now jump on the platform
       and jump up ontop of that wall then head up through the passage. There will
       now be a new path to Grate Guy's Casino.

    |Bowser's Keep|
     ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
    Well Mario starts off in Bowser's Keep doing what he does best (saving women
    from mutated turtles). Anyway, head up (um.. just to make sure there are no
    misunderstanding with the walkthrough because of the isometric view, here is
    what each direction means in relation to the screen: Up= North East, Down=
    South West, Left= North West and Right= South East. Anyway, head up through the
    big red doors. It doesn't really matter if you fight the Terrapins, as you get
    nothing from the battles; so just hold "Y" and dodge them on the way to the
    next door. But...  when you get to the big red doors the Terrapins will ambush
    you and you will have to fight four of them, simply tap "A" a lot and Mario
    will punch them all out. Now head up through the next red door. The next room
    is purely for show, so just continue on and watch the bridge collapse from
    behind you. Head up in this room until Mario looks up at Bowser on his
    chandelier. Now Mario's First-Battle (kind of) will start.
    
    ------------------------------------
     BOWSER: 320 HP "Mario! It's time!"
     KINKLINK: 50 HP "<no thoughts>"
    ------------------------------------
    Attacking Bowser is futile.. but attacking the Kinklink works like a charm!
    Press the Y Button to use a special technique, then press Y Button again to
    select "Jump", now press any direction on the Control Pad to move the cursor to
    the Kinklink, then press the Y Button again and Mario will jump on the
    Kinklink. If you do this twice the Kinklink will begin to fidget and Bowser's
    chandelier will begin to fall.
    ------------------------------------
    
    Bowser plays dirty and he throws two hammers at the Kinklink that's holding up
    Mario's chandelier, so Mario's chandelier begins to fall as well and when it
    gets to the same level as Bowser's (physically impossible), Bowser swipes at
    Mario but Mario counterattacks causing him to be flung up to the Princess. But
    as Mario climbs up to save the Princess the castle begins to shake and a sword
    thrusts itself into Bowser's Keep, this causes the Seven Stars of the Star Road
    to shower all over the Mushroom Kingdom and it also causes Mario to be flung
    out of the Keep and into his house, the "Pipe House".
     ___________
    |Mario's Pad|
     ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
    After Toad does his little one-liner (err.. I'll show him how to use a door)
    press "B" so Mario jumps off the clothes peg. Now exit the Pipe House and talk
    to Toad pacing outside, he will insist you go and retrieve the Princess from
    Bowser's Keep. So walk left and jump on the Save Point (the shiny box with the
    "S" on it) then head right and exit to Bowser's Keep.
     _____________
    |Bowser's Keep|
     ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
    Mario goes to the front door of the Keep, but he is greeted by Exor;0 the giant
    sword that flung itself into the Keep. It tells Mario to get lost and destroys
    the only bridge to Bowser's Keep. So now go back to Mario's Pad.
     ___________
    |Mario's Pad|
     ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
    Go into the Pipe House and talk to Toad gazing out of the window, Mario will
    explain what happened and then Toad will run away! So go outside and exit this
    area... but Toad runs into you, flinging you back. He gives you a Mushroom to
    say sorry. Toad will basically now go through a tutorial, so just answer his
    questions and do what he tells you to do, at the end of it he'll give you some
    Mushrooms. Now save and exit to Mushroom Way.
     ____________
    |Mushroom Way|
     ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
    Simply follow the path and kill as many Goombas and Sky Troopas you can, just
    punch them out. There are two Treasure Boxes in this first section, the first
    one has 5 Coins and the other has 8 Coins, jump repetitively under the boxes to
    get all the coins. Before you exit this section save Toad from the Goomba that
    has cornered him, you will get a Honey Syrup for your troubles. Now go to the
    next section. As soon as you walk into the next section a Goomba will ambush
    you, let it! you need the Ex.Pts. Walk up and jump on the Goomba spinning
    around on a pink flower, then jump on the flower and when your facing the left
    ledge press the B Button (be quick or Mario will get dizzy), now hit the
    Treasure Box up there, it contains a Flower.
    
    Jump back down onto the spinning flower and press the B Button when your facing
    the right ledge, then Jump up at the Sky Troopa that has captured Toad and
    defeat it. Toad will reward you with a Flower Tab, so use it straight away.
    Near the exit is a Treasure Box, walk under it and wait for the Goomba to
    attack you. Then jump up and and get the contents, a "Recovery Mushroom". Now
    go to the next section. This section has a Lakitu that throws Spikies down at
    Mario, fight them until you get to level 3 then walk up to the Hammer Bro that
    has captured Toad, and initiate a battle.
    
    ---------------------------------------
     HAMMER BRO: 50 HP "I love my hammer!"
     HAMMER BRO: 50 HP "I love my hammer!"
    ---------------------------------------
    Two timed Jumps each should be enough to defeat them, but they may take more
    if you are weak or if they use "Valor Up" which increases their defence. You
    get a Flower Jar, 20 Coins and 6 Ex.Pts. for beating them, and...
    ---------------------------------------
    
    One of the Hammer Bros. leaves their Hammer behind, so immediately equip it and
    use the Flower Jar. Now exit to the Mushroom Kingdom.

    |Mushroom Kingdom|
     ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
    You can go explore around this town, but before you enter the castle make sure
    you save in the Inn. Once your finished exploring enter the castle get ready
    as the next bit is tricky. After talking to Toad, quickly jump on his head and
    just as he is about to exit the room jump above the doorway, now jump again to
    hit the Surprise Box with a Frog Coin (If you fudge it up hold L & R then press
    Select and Start simultaneously, this will reset the game so you can try
    again). Follow Toad to the Chancellors Room, after Mario explains what happened
    to the Chancellor he will tell Mario to save the Princess, he'll give him a Map
    and he will tell you to go to the Vault. Also, if you haven't equipped the
    Hammer he will get Toad to explain how you do so if you're lost. Now in the
    main hall way, go right and talk to the Vault Guard standing in the staircase.
    Hit the 3 boxes, you will get 10 Coins, a Flower, and a Recovery Mushroom.
    
    Go back up the stairs and head left going through the door way on the opposite
    side of the hallway, now head up the stairs and continue up them until you
    get to "Toadstool's Room". There is nothing much to do here, but if you search
    the chair at the back of the room you will find "Toadstool's ???", but as soon
    as you find it Toadstool's Grandma will quickly swap it for a Mushroom. So now
    exit the castle. As you walk out of the castle you will see a marshmallow
    called Mallow chasing a crocodile that has stolen his coin, he then starts
    crying which causes it to rain. So walk up to him and talk to him, and he will
    ask you to help him get his Frog Coin back. Help him and he will join your
    party. Now head to the Item Shop, after explaining to the Shopkeeper that his
    Frog Coin has been stolen, Mallow will get a Pick Me Up from the sympathetic
    Shopkeeper. From the Shop buy a Shirt, Pants, Jump Shoes and an Antidote Pin,
    if you can't afford all that don't worry. You can buy a lot from this shop
    here is a list, but I suggest you stock up on Honey Syrups.
    
    Mushroom     |  4
    Honey Syrup  | 10
    Pick Me Up   |  5
    Able Juice   |  4
    Shirt        |  7
    Pants        |  7
    Jump Shoes   | 30
    Antidote Pin | 28
    
    Now go down the stairs in the back of the shop and talk to the man down there,
    do what he says and you will uncover a Surprise Box with a Flower inside.
    There is another box in this room but it is a little tricky, go back up the
    stairs to the shop then go back down to this room. Now jump on the guy's head
    and wait until he walks near the top right corner then jump up to it and you
    will uncover a Treasure Box with another Flower inside. Exit the Inn and talk
    to the Mushroom Retainer jumping up and down outside, Croco runs to Bandit's
    Way so save in the Inn then exit to Bandit's Way.
     ____________
    |Bandit's Way|
     ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
    In the first section simply follow Croco to the next area, if you get in any
    battles in Bandit's Way just use Mario's Hammer and Mallow's Thunderbolt. The
    only enemies that may cause you trouble are Frogogs, so always make Mario
    attack them first. In the next section there is spinning flower, so jump on it
    and press "B" when you facing the ledge. Now jump from the yellow platform to
    yellow platform collecting Coins on the way; then from the ledge they take you
    to, jump down on to the spinning flower and when Mario is facing the blue
    stationary flower press "B" you will get a Kerokero Cola (sometimes it doesn't
    work so just persevere until it works). Then head up to the next section,
    follow Croco while fighting enemies on the way to the nest section, there is a
    Treasure Box with a "Recovery Mushroom" being guarded by a K-9 to the right
    before the path to the next section.
    
    In this section there are two yellow platforms, jump on the right one then
    jump at the Treasure Box you will get a "Invincibility Star". So now run into
    as many K-9's as you can, you will almost certainly level-up. To get to the
    other Treasure Box jump on the right yellow platform then when the other
    platform is to the right (screen wise) of Mario, jump to it. Repeat until you
    get to the Treasure Box, it has a Flower inside. Now exit right to the next
    section. You have cornered Croco, firstly make sure Mario and Mallow are at
    least Level 4, so fight enemies around here until you are! Then hit the
    Treasure Box at the top of this section for a "Recovery Mushroom". Now you can
    go after Croco, you have to sneak up behind him 3 times in order to fight him!
    His pattern is simple, he runs behind a island of foliage then he waits for
    four seconds, then he faces the other direction and waits for four seconds and
    then he runs behind another island of foliage, repeat! After catching him three
    times you will have to fight him...
    
    ---------------------------------
     CROCO: 320 HP "Gosh, I'm good!"
    ---------------------------------
    Croco is fairly easy, just get Mario to use Fire Orb on him and Mallow should
    use HP Rain, Mushrooms and Honey Syrup when necessary, but he should use
    Thunderbolt when he's not busy healing as his punch is very weak. The first
    time Mario uses Fire Orb Croco will skip a go since he will be dousing a tail
    fire. After you cause enough damage Mallow will "click the shits" and he'll
    pound the Frog Coin out of Croco. You get 8 Ex.Pts, 10 Coins, a Flower Tab for
    defeating Croco.
    ---------------------------------
    
    Croco also drops a wallet, now jump onto the trampoline that falls from the
    sky, then save from the nearby save point and exit to the Mushroom Kingdom.

    When you come back the Mushroom Kingdom it is all gloomy and it's overridden
    with Shysters. Quickly walk up to the Mushroom Retainer being chased by a
    Shyster, after defeating the Shyster with Mario's Hammer and Mallow's
    Thunderbolt attacks the Mushroom Retainer will give Mario 10 coins. Now go
    inside the Item Shop and read the note on the counter, now stock up on items
    you need (Honey Syrup is very useful soon). Now leave the shop and save the
    blue mushroom person below from the Shyster, then give him back his Wallet and
    he will give you a Flower Tab. You might as well save the guy that gets you to
    jump and Raz and Rani from the Shysters, but don't expect anything from them.
    Now go inside the double storey house just below the castle, and defeat the
    two Shysters jumping on the furniture. You must then go upstairs and save the
    boy up there from the Shyster, the father will give you a Flower Tab.
    
    Exit the house and go inside the castle, quickly run ahead and fight the
    Shyster chasing Toad. Now you have to clear the way to Toadstool's Room for
    Toad. In the room with stairs and two Shysters you only have to defeat the left
    Shyster to clear the room. After Toad gets to Toadstool's Room tell him (You
    bet) and you will get another Flower Tab. Now use your little collection of
    Flower Tabs you have accumulated. Talk to the Princess' Grandma to get fully
    healed then save. Now go back to the hallway and head left, then go up to the
    Guest Room and talk to the Vault Guard shaking in terror in the corner, he will
    give you the Wake Up Pin. So equip Mallow with it, then head down until your in
    the Vault, you can hit the Treasure Boxes again to get 10 Coins, a Flower and a
    Recovery Mushroom. Now make your way to the Chancellor's Room, after crashing
    their party Mario will have to fight Mack the Knife and his Bodyguards.
    
    -----------------------------------------
     MACK: 480 HP "Boing, boing, boing."
     and an unlimited supply of:
     BODYGUARD: 30 HP "Boing, boing, boing."
    -----------------------------------------
    I hope your at Level 6, cause if you are this is a breeze! Mario should use
    his Hammer and Mallow should use his Thunderbolt special. The first time
    Mallow uses Thunderbolt on Mack he will lose a go since he will be stunned.
    There is a trick of leaving one Bodyguard alive so the Bodyguards don't
    regenerate, but this is useless IMHO since they die as zoom as Mallow uses
    Thunderbolt, so they never get to touch you anyway. If Mack jumps up out of
    sight don't worry, he'll be back soon. You get 12 Ex.Pts and 20 Coins for
    defeating Mack the Knife and his Bodyguards.
    -----------------------------------------
    
    Now the Blue Star will float to Mario. Congratulations! After the Shysters do
    their incoherent dialogue, walk up to the Chancellor shaking in the corner and
    talk to him. After a little talk with the Chancellor, Mallow will suggest to go
    to the Tadpole Pond to see his grandfather.

    Go to the Item Shop and get Mallow his Cricket Pie. Also stock up on Mushrooms,
    Honey Syrup, Able Juice and Pick Me Ups (at least have two of each in your
    inventory. Now save in the Inn, before you leave jump on the kid running in
    circles in the bottom right corner of town something slightly funny will
    happen. Now exit and go to the Kero Sewers.
     ___________
    |Kero Sewers|
     ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
    Go down the green pipe (tap down). Jump on the Save Box, and then jump into the
    water and swim right and up. To get out of the water, go were the water is
    shallow and press "B". The note near the pipe tells you the basics of pipe
    travel, so read it if you're lost. Then go down the pipe, drop down to the
    Pipe to the right and go down it. Now follow the path to the next pipe killing
    the Big Boo on the way, and then go down the pipe. In the next room drop off to
    the right and jump up the stairs to get to the Treasure Box, but once you hit
    it, Pandorite appears. Use Mario's strongest Jump attack and get Mallow to
    punch it, as his Thunderbolt special does nothing. After the Pandorite is
    defeated you'll get 10 Ex.Pts, 30 Coins, a Flower Jar and a Trueform Pin, but
    that's not all! Exit the room and re-enter, then hit the Treasure Box Pandorite
    was in multiple times to get 50 Coins. To get back up to the higher level,
    climb the steps that go to the Pandorite box, then walk down until you drop
    down one step, then jump up to the higher level
    
    Go up this zig-zagging section, many Rat Funks will ambush you on your way up.
    Hit the Box on the way up for a Flower, then go down the pipe at the end of the
    path. In the next section walk down and hit the Treasure Box, you get an
    "Invincibility Star" so quickly run left and run into the four Rat Funk's,
    then run due west and go down. The "Invincibility Star" would have probably
    died out by now, so go down the pipe at the bottom of the thin pathway. Jump up
    to the platform with the stationary Rat Funk then jump over his head to the
    pipe below and go down it. Now go up the stairs on your left and jump on the
    green exclamation button, then drop down and go down the pipe you came up from,
    then drop down to the pipe that was submerged before and go down it. Now head
    up and hit the Treasure Box to get a "Recovery Mushroom" then jump on the
    nearby save box. Now go down the pipe up ahead then walk up to the ugly looking
    dog, it's Belome. So get ready for a battle.
    
    -----------------------------------------
     BELOME: 500 HP "I just...wanna sleep."
    -----------------------------------------
    This guy is pretty simple to beat if your on a reasonable level, Mario should
    use his strongest Jump attack while Mallow should be the designated healer and
    item user but try to get him to use Thunderbolt mainly. Belome usually swallows
    Mallow half way through the fight, but don't worry he will spit him out after a
    couple of turns or after you've dealt enough damage. It doesn't really matter
    if he turns you into a Scarecrow as Physical Attacks aren't as effective as
    special attacks, it will only hinder you if you need to use a Item. After a
    while Belome will say "If you defeat me, you STILL won't beat me! Beware the
    flood!" which indicates you have defeated him.
    -----------------------------------------
    
    Belome was sitting on a switch that controls the flood gates, so by defeating
    him you have made the switch pop up and lots of water rush in. The water
    sweeps our heroes into the ....

    Toad gives you a little tutorial at the start of each of the sections, so let
    him teach you if your lost. For a in-depth guide to this Mini-Game scroll down
    to (Section 6: MINI-GAMES & SIDE-QUESTS). After you get to the end of this
    Mini-Game the caretaker will give you a Frog Coin for every 60 Coins you
    collected and he will also give you the "Nok Nok Shell". So equip Mario with
    it straight away, then exit and go to the Tadpole Pond.
     ____________
    |Tadpole Pond|
     ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
    Walk up and stand on the lone stone and then some tadpoles will appear followed
    by a mystical flying frog err.... actually it's Frogfucius. Now jump across the
    bridge of tadpoles and talk to Frogfucius on his island. After listening to his
    pearls of wisdom and the revelation that Mallow isn't a tadpole (whoa didn't
    see that one coming) go and talk to him again, you will give him the Cricket
    Pie which will cheer him up enough to give you the Froggie Stick. So equip it
    onto Mallow and go back across the Tadpole Bridge. To the left is the "Frog
    Coin Emporium" and the "Juice Bar", but you don't have a membership card yet
    and your Frog Coin supply is too precious to use now, so go right instead into
    the Melody Bay. If you want to do this yourself read the canvas on Frogfucius'
    island then talk to Toadofsky to get a small tutorial on music, but if not just
    see (Section 6: MINI-GAMES & SIDE-QUESTS) for the solutions. After you play
    Frogfucius' Suite #18 to Toadofsky you'll get the Alto Card from him, which
    gives you a wider selection and better prices at the Juice Bar. Now save then
    see what's in the "Frog Coin Emporium" here is a list of their inventory:
    
    (In Frog Coins)
    Sleep Bomb  | 1
    Bracer      | 2
    Energizer   | 2
    Crystalline | 5
    Power Blast | 5
    
    then visit the Juice Bar, here is price list with the all the different cards:

    Kerokero Cola |  --- |  --- |  ---  |   200   |
    
    Now exit to Rose Way.
     ________
    |Rose Way|
     ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
    Just for Rose Way, take the Jump Shoes off Mario and put on the Wake Up Pin as
    the Shyguys' Doom Reverb and the Snapdragons' Pollen Nap can cause you trouble.
    Rose Way is full of yellow platforms, but they act different; read the note at
    the start for a explanation. Jump on the first block then jump to the next
    block when they meet up, after this platform floats to an island jump off to
    get a "Recovery Mushroom". Now jump back on the platform then when it meets up
    with the next platform, jump to it. Stay on this platform till it takes you to
    an island with a Flower, so collect the Flower and jump back on the platform.
    This platform will take you to a platform that you should jump on, that takes
    you to the entrance to the next section. In this section, defeat the Shyguys on
    the swinging platforms, then jump from platform to platform to get to the Box
    with a Frog Coin. If the platforms get out of sync, jump up in front of one to
    hold it back, if you keep on doing this you will eventually get them in sync.
    Now exit this section and jump on the platform, stay on it until it takes you
    to the entrance of the next section (If you time it right you can jump up to
    collect the coin floating above the path of this platform). But anyway on to
    the next section.
    
    The Crooks in this section are worth fighting they usually run away, but if you
    defeat them, they will give you a fair amount of coins. There is also a Lakitu
    with a Shyguy at the end of his fishing line, if you defeat the Shyguy at the
    end of his line around 5 times, he'll drop a "Recovery Mushroom" down at you.
    Now exit to the next section. Jump on the yellow platform, firstly it travels
    down, so jump on it again so it goes left. Now jump to the next platform while
    collecting the coin. On the next platform time your jump so you collect the
    coins suspended above the path of the platform, but don't jump to the next
    platform, instead go back and jump on the last platform, then ride this
    platform so it goes to land then down to the next platform you have to jump to.
    This platform takes you to an island with a coin (so collect it) then to the
    entrance of the next section. The next section is a free for all, so collect as
    many coins as you can and fight as many enemies as you can before exiting to
    the next section. The next section has nothing but a little "cinema" showing
    Bowser's fading army. Now exit and go to Rose Town.
     _________
    |Rose Town|
     ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
    As soon as you enter Rose Town go in the Inn on the west side of the town.
    Inside the Inn is a little boy playing with section figures, his name is Gaz.
    Play with him and watch the unfolding events involving a wooden doll called
    Geno. As soon as Mario wakes up save and head downstairs, listen to Gaz and
    his mum's conversation then exit the Inn. In the top right corner of Rose Town
    is an Item Shop, climb the crates on it's right side and go down it's chimney.
    Now hit the Treasure Box up there for a Flower, then jump up along the
    cupboard to the top left to uncover a Surprise Box with a Frog Coin inside.
    Now buy some supplies from the two people inside, the mushroom boy on the left
    sells these items:
    
    Mushroom    |  4
    Honey Syrup | 10
    Pick Me Up  |  5
    Able Juice  |  4
    
    the mushroom girl on the right sells this equipment:
    
    Thick Shirt  |  14
    Thick Pants  |  14
    Jump Shoes   |  30
    Antidote Pin |  28
    Wake Up Pin  |  42
    Trueform Pin |  60
    Fearless Pin | 130
    
    So I would buy the Thick Shirt, Thick Pants and Fearless Pin from the girl, and
    I would stock up on all items especially Able Juice as the enemies in the
    Forest Maze use lots of "Abnormal Condition" attacks. Equip the Thick armours
    on our heroes and equip the Fearless Pin on Mallow then sell the old armour.
    Now exit and talk to the guy wandering in the top left corner of town, he has
    been cut off from his own house so jump on his head and up into is house. The
    two boxes in house contain Flowers at the moment but after you make the stairs
    appear they will contain coins, so go upstairs jump on the switch then jump on
    the bed to get a Frog Coin. Now exit the house and talk to the guy, he will
    give you directions for the Forest Maze that are: Left, Left, Straight, Right.
    Now exit to the Forest Maze.
     ___________
    |Forest Maze|
     ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
    As soon as you enter the Forest Maze jump in the bottom left corner to uncover
    a Surprise Box with a Kerokero Cola. There are lots of Mushroom around here but
    pick them with caution as they could be an enemy called Amanita disguised.
    Go left to the next section, there is a constant march of Wigglers coming from
    the hollow in a stump, every time you jump on a Wiggler you'll get a Coin but
    if you jump on a single Wiggler 10 times you'll get a Frog Coin. Go down the
    stump (like a pipe) and make your way through the cave while watching out for
    Amanita and jump on the trampoline at the end. As soon as you emerge from the
    tree hollow walk left (NW) and jump to hit a Surprise Box with a Frog Coin
    inside.  Now go up and left to the next section.
    
    This section has 7 hollow stumps with Wigglers coming out of them. Go down the
    bottom right stump and jump in the middle of the large light patch near the
    bottom for a Flower, now jump on the trampoline and go down the middle left
    stump. Now jump in the light coloured corner above the trampoline to uncover a
    Surprise Box with nothing inside!. Now jump on the trampoline and go down the
    last stump, then jump behind the sleeping Wiggler, whilst being careful not to
    touch him to uncover a Surprise Box with a Kerokero Cola. Then wake the
    sleeping Wiggler by touching it, you will be flung out of the cave but a new
    path will be open so go through it and down the stump that the Wiggler goes
    down. Now follow this cave to the next section fighting some Rat Funk's and
    Amanita's on the way, then in the next section make your way to the trampoline
    and jump on it.
    
    Head up and save, but jump in the top right corner before you exit to uncover
    a Surprise Box with Red Essence inside. Now head up, this is why this Forest is
    a Maze, head in the direction the man told you but follow them in Mario's
    perspective, so from our perspective you'd go left, down, down then left.
    Go down the stump and hit the 5 boxes to get random items that are always
    either Frog Coins, Flowers or Recovery Mushrooms. Now jump on the trampoline
    and exit back into the maze and go right, up, up, right, up, left following
    Geno. Now walk forward and watch Mario, Mallow and Geno get in a fight with
    Bowyer the Bow who has the Green Star.
    
    -------------------------------------------
     BOWYER: 720 HP "What's with these folks?"
    -------------------------------------------
    Get Geno to use his Geno Beam, Mario to use his Nok Nok Shell and Mallow to be
    the designated healer and item user. After the first turn Bowyer will start
    blocking button, so that strategy is only limited to the buttons you can use
    but always give priority to the actions above. Note that Mallows Thunderbolt
    special does minimal damage. After Bowyer is defeated you will get 20 Ex.Pts,
    50 Coins and a Flower Box.
    -------------------------------------------
    
    Now Geno will explain who he is and the mystery of the stars and Mario will get
    the Green Star.

    Exit to Rose Town.
     _________
    |Rose Town|
     ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
    Look Rose Town is all cheery now! So go into Gaz's House (Rose Town Inn) and
    talk to Gaz. After Geno tries to explain the concept of shooting stars to Gaz,
    he will give Geno a Finger Shot. So Equip Geno with the Finger Shot and the
    Trueform Pin, now exit and go to the Pipe Vault.
     __________
    |Pipe Vault|
     ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
    Go down the pipe. Now head up jumping over the lava to get to the next section,
    time your jumps to avoid Sparkies if you wish. The next section is fairly easy
    simply jump over Goombas and jump when the Thwomp is about to hit the ground,
    then go down the 2nd pipe. Go down the next pipe, now run up ahead collecting
    coins and when you get to the end press down to duck under and get the Frog
    Coin, then jump on the trampoline. Go down the last pipe again (two back). Now
    walk three blocks up and jump to uncover a hidden platform, so jump on it then
    up to the higher platform. Now go four blocks ahead and jump to uncover a
    Surprise Box with a Frog Coin, now go another four blocks ahead and jump up to
    uncover another Surprise Box with a Flower, now jump down on the trampoline.
    Now go down the next pipe this takes you to the "Goomba Thumpin' Mini-Game"
    (see the Mini-Game section for a in-depth look at it).
    
    Go down the last pipe. Just jump across the platforms and avoid the Piranha
    Plant in the red pipe. Watch out for the "Walking Piranha Plants" (that's
    their real name seriously, I checked the Super Mario Bros. 3 Instruction
    Booklet) as you will lose 2 coins every time you come in contact with them.
    Head down the green pipe at the end of this section. In the next section jump
    up on the floating platform and hit the Box above it to get a Flower. Then make
    your way to the next moving platform that is above the Walking Piranha Plants,
    the Box above this platform is not worth hitting more then once or twice as you
    will lose more coins in the process, if you try for more. Continue on you way
    to the next pipe and go down it to emerge in Yo'ster Isle.
     ____________
    |Yo'ster Isle|
     ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
    Save after you emerge from the pipe then jump behind the Save Point to uncover
    a Surprise Box with a Frog Coin inside, head down to the main section of
    Yo'ster Isle. Talk to Yoshi near the bottom right corner of the island and jump
    on him, he now will be your interpreter. Now go and talk to the Red Yoshi near
    the top of the island and tell him (Of Course) he will give you some Cookies.
    Now go down and talk to the Blue Yoshi with shades (Boshi), you will get in
    a race with him. Now Toad will give you a little tutorial on the Mushroom Derby
    (see the Mini-Game section for a in-depth look at it) before you start racing,
    if you win you'll get some Yoshi Cookies and you will be able to play the
    proper Mushroom Derby whenever you want to. If you lose you will have to talk
    to the Red Yoshi again to get Cookies then the Boshi to try again. Now exit and
    go to Moleville.
     _________
    |Moleville|
     ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
    Go to the Item Shop and buy a Punch Glove, Cymbals and 3 Work Pants. Then equip
    them all, also stock up on other items, here is a list of what's available:
    
    Punch Glove  | 36
    Finger Shot  | 50
    Cymbals      | 42
    Mega Shirt   | 22
    Mega Cape    | 22
    Mega Pants   | 22
    Work Pants   | 22
    Mid Mushroom | 20
    Maple Syrup  | 30
    
    Now save in the inn and head up to the mountains you will see the almost
    vanquished Bowser Army march off, now head left and talk to the mole panicked
    near the mountains entrance. She explains while gossiping to another mole, that
    a star has landed in the mine, trapping two kids inside the Coal Mines, now
    head into the mine.
     __________
    |Coal Mines|
     ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
    As you enter the mine, the moles inside are thinking of a way to get to a
    higher ledge, when they see you they'll ask if you'll save their kids, So
    choose (Of Course) then jump on their shoulders and then jump up to the ledge
    above, now go through the doorway and make your way through the room to the
    next section. This next section has the Treasure Hunter and a teleporting
    Sparky, talk to the Treasure Hunter then go through the doorway below. Now keep
    heading up until you get to the trampoline then jump up on it, the only problem
    is there is no hole above it so Mario whacks his head on the ceiling and gets
    knocked out. During the time Mario is knocked out, Croco and his Crooks steal
    all his coins.
    
    So start running on his tail, as you corner Croco and his Crooks in the next
    room he'll bomb a way out. So keep following him. After he bombs yet another
    wall go down then right and in the next room fight the Crook hiding behind the
    crate near the end of the room, you get a Flower Tab for defeating him.
    Head right to the room with the trampoline, there is another Crook behind the
    trampoline so defeat it to get another Flower Tab. Head up to the next room,
    there is another Crook behind the L-shaped crates, so as before defeat him for
    a Flower Tab. Now wait until Croco runs past or run around this section the way
    he went the first time (running the opposite way may be faster). Anyhow once
    you tackle him you're in for a battle.
    
    --------------------------------
     CROCO 750 HP "Ooh! I'm good!"
    --------------------------------
    Mario should use the Punch Glove or Super Jump on Croco, while Mallow should be
    use Cymbals when he is not healing or using items and Geno should use the Geno
    Beam. Half-way through the battle Croco will steal your items, so now you must
    conserve FP for Mallow's HP Rain so everyone should use Physical Attacks now.
    After he gives up you'll get 10 Ex.Pts, 50 Coins + the Coins he stole, your
    items and the Bambino Bomb as well!
    --------------------------------
    
    Now keep heading left in the mine until you get to the room that has/had a lone
    Bob-omb then head up and talk to Pa'Mole, he will blow a hole in the rock using
    the Bambino Bomb. So go through the hole and continue, go through the lower
    passage and follow the railroad, but.. as you get to the end a Shyguy on a Mine
    Cart will push you back blocking the lower section and dropping a Frog Coin for
    you in the process. So now climb the boxes to the higher section and head up,
    there is a Treasure Box ahead with a "Invincibility Star", so hit it and run
    up, then head right, jump up the crates, to the higher section and head up now,
    head left and run into the four Bob-ombs now save, backtrack to the last room
    and hot the Treasure Box to get 150 Coins. Now go ahead and hit the Treasure
    Box by the Save Point then save, now jump up on the stack of crates ahead and
    jump right to get a Flower. Now head up and walk around the guy throwing bombs
    and walk into his side. He is Punchinello and you have to fight him now..
    
    -----------------------------------------------------------
     PUNCHINELLO: 1200 HP "Yeeha! I see we're already famous!"
     also he produces from his mouth:
     MIRCOBOMB: 30 HP "Small is as small does"
     BOB-OMB: 90 HP "Ouch.  HEY! Watch it!"
     MEZZO BOMB 150 HP "Look out!"
    -----------------------------------------------------------
    Mario and Geno should use physical attacks while Mallow should use Thunderbolt
    to destroy the Bob-ombs. He starts off with Microbombs then after you do enough
    damage he goes to Bob-ombs, then after you do even more damage he uses
    Mezzo Bombs then finally once you defeat him he will stomp until a HUGE bomb
    lands on him. Then coal lands on the wick which causes the bomb to explode.
    -----------------------------------------------------------
    
    The explosion causes the Orange Star to fall down so Mario can collect it. Now
    head up to Dyna and Mite who are trying to get a Mine Cart to budge so talk to
    Dyna then read the guidelines behind you, then your on your way (see the
    Mini-Game section for an in-depth guide to Moleville Mountain).

    As you walk out of Ma' & Pa'Moles house you see a beetle being chased by some
    Snifits, it lands on Mario's head and the Snifits try to persuade Mario to hand
    over the beetle, as they do this they tell Mario that some guy called Booster
    is entertaining the princess from the sky. After talking to some moles around
    town you should realise that the princess from the sky is Toadstool. There is a
    lot of cool stuff in Moleville now, there is the Bomb Shop in the top right
    corner of town, this gives you bombs for points, you get points by giving them
    items here is a points table:
    
    Able Juice    | 10
    Bracer        | 15
    Energizer     | 20
    Honey Syrup   |  4
    Kerokero Cola | 40
    Maple Syrup   | 12
    Max Mushroom  | 30
    Mid Mushroom  | 10
    Mushroom      |  2
    Pick Me Up    |  2
    Pure Water    | 25
    Red Essence   | 50
    Royal Syrup   | 30
    
    After you trade in 100 points worth of items you can choose between:
    
    1)A "Fright Bomb" which allows
      you to make one enemy quiver
      in fright.
    2)A "Fire Bomb" for a fire attack
      against all enemies.
    3)A "Ice Bomb" for a ice attack
      against all enemies.
    
    Also there is the Purtend Store but it isn't useful at the present time and
    also there is an entrance to Molville Mountain on top of the mountain, but you
    have to pay 10 Coins to get in or wager 30 Coins and if you beat the record
    you'll get 50 Coins. Go into the Item Shop, the Treasure Hunter from the Coal
    Mines has opened up a Miner's Store, you can only buy a Lucky Jewel for 100
    Coins at the moment though. Now exit and talk to the little mole with the
    yellow bow near the bomb shop, now enter the mine and head where Pa'Mole used
    the Bambino Bomb, Then talk to one of the moles and they will start singing:
    
    Diggin' deep in the "MI"nes~
    "DO"n't get much sun!~
    I'm covered with "SO"il~
    'til my work day is "DO"ne~
    I "RE"ally hate sititn'~
    It's "LA"bor I choose!
    'cause them's the "TI"me~
    To "DO" them old Molville Blues!~
    
    If you haven't noticed the solfege (Mi, Do, So, Do, Re, La, Ti and then Do) was
    *hidden* in that song, so exit and go to the Tadpole Pond.
     ____________
    |Tadpole Pond|
     ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
    Now play the Moleville Blues to Toadofsky to get the Tenor Card if your having
    trouble see Section 6: MINI-GAMES & SIDE-QUESTS. Now exit and go to Booster
    Pass.
     ____________
    |Booster Pass|
     ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
    Booster Pass is full of Lakitus throwing Spikesters, but as soon as your enter
    Booster Pass look behind the 2nd artichoke plant on your right to get a Frog
    Coin. Now head to the far left of this section and jump on the artichoke plant
    up on a hill, then jump again to uncover a Surprise Box with a Flower. Now head
    right and up, but before you exit to the next section jump to the left of the
    exit to uncover a Surprise Box with a Rock Candy inside. Now exit to the next
    section, walk up along the lower section and collect the Flower growing from
    the ground, then walk holding left along the left side of this section to walk
    into a little concave, then jump left to land on a switch that fills in all the
    holes in the higher section which kills all the Spikesters. Now head up and
    exit and go to Booster Tower.
     _____________
    |Booster Tower|
     ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
    You'll find Bowser with no army crying about the good 'ol days at the foot of
    Booster Tower, after Mario talks to him Princess Toadstool at the top of the
    tower hears them ad screams down to Mario, then Bowser leaves. Now go up to
    the front door and press "A", it's locked. So head down but... Bowser comes
    running in and belts the door down, he then lets you join the "Koopa Troop". So
    Bowser joins your party, the game will now show you how to switch between
    characters. So switch Mallow with Bowser and enter the tower. Walk up to Snifit
    by the desk and engage in a fight by talking to him, then walk left and climb
    up the blocks to the higher section and take note of the order of the
    paintings. Go through the doorway to the next section.
    
    Climb up the blocks. This section has a constant supply of Spookums coming from
    the next doorway, walk to the black square one down from the top left square
    and jump to uncover a Surprise Box with a Frog Coin inside. Now head to the
    next section, this is where you meet Booster for the first time, follow the his
    mini-train track to where it exits to find a "Flower Tab", use it immediately
    then head right to the next section. Climb up the blocks, if you want to avoid
    the Rob-ombs hug the right wall and jump and run when there is a small gap.
    Then go into the first door; in this room jump off from the yellow block to the
    edge of the platform and fall two spaces to the right. You will land on a
    teeter-totter which will cause the bob-omb to be flung up and down, thus
    catapulting you up to the Treasure Box with the Masher, equip it immediately as
    it is a great weapon.
    
    Exit this room and make your way back up to the room with the Rob-ombs. This
    time go through the 2nd doorway. Now jump on the exclamation switch, this opens
    up a new path in Booster Pass, then go to the next room. This is a little
    novelty room, go through one curtain and come out the other and you will become
    "Super Mario" from Super Mario Brothers, once you go to an exit Mario will
    change back and then head to the next room. Make your way up the platforms and
    around the Spookums (if you don't want to battle). Then talk to Snifit 3 who is
    shooting bullets at you, after defeating him go left to the next room. Now
    using the same method as before for avoiding Rob-ombs (of you don't want to
    battle) make your way to the next room and save. Then go right to the Ancestor
    Hall.
    
    Now walk up to the paintings and press "A" in the order you wrote down before,
    if you do it right Booster will spit out the Elder Key at you. Use it to open
    the door with the big key hole on this room, then enter and jump up to get the
    Chomp, immediately equip Bowser with it. Exit and go right to the next room,
    make your way up to the teeter-totter with the Thwomp; but before you jump on
    it hit the nearby Treasure Box to get a "Recovery Mushroom". Jump on the
    teeter-totter and you will be flung up to the next section. Go to the bottom
    left (west) corner of this platform and jump to uncover a Surprise Box with a
    Frog Coin. Now make your way up the platforms avoiding the para-trooping
    Spookums (but you really should fight them), on the platform before the stairs
    go in the gap to the right of the stairs and jump to get a Frog Coin, then
    climb the stairs and go to the next room.
    
    This is the Mine Room, if you walk around on certain squares an instant battle
    with Fireballs will start. you get LUCKY flowers a lot for fighting them.
    Anyhow, collect all the coins and the Room Key then go up through the door with
    the big key hole, this takes you to a room with a Treasure Box that contains
    the Zoom Shoes. Equip them on Mario then go back down to the Mine Room, then
    left to the next room. Climb up to the next room, avoid the Chomp if you wish.
    In this room Booster comes in on his train and throws Bob-ombs at Mario, you
    can either; defeat all Bob-ombs, run behind hollow painting or tun down to the
    next room. Anyway, head to the next room and make your way up the steps.
    
    In this room climb up the yellow blocks on the right, then jump across to on
    top of the Treasure Box then jump to uncover a Surprise Box with the Goodie
    Bag. Now drop down and hit the box below to get a Frog Coin. Then jump in the
    bottom right corner before the exit to uncover a Surprise Box with a "Recovery
    Mushroom" inside. Now switch Geno with Mallow and save, then head to the next
    room. Now head down and look at the door, you will see Toadstool through the
    hole, but Booster walks in so Mario runs behind the curtains. Now begins the
    Hide'n'Seek Curtain Game see Section 6 for further info) if you win you'll get
    the Amulet, if you lose you will have to fight Booster and his Snifits.
    
    --------------------------------------------------------
     SNIFIT: 200 HP "Minimum wage for THIS?!"
     SNIFIT: 200 HP "Minimum wage for THIS?!"
     SNIFIT: 200 HP "Minimum wage for THIS?!"
     BOOSTER: 800 HP "This is like realizing you're outside
                      without your clothes on!
    --------------------------------------------------------
    Firstly you have to take out all 3 Snifits, use Mallows Thunderbolt to take 'em
    out, they're really no big deal at all! Then you have to fight Booster, just
    use Physical Attacks on him and get Mallow to use HP Rain when it's needed.
    Mario's Jump attacks work pretty well too! He should be down in no time.
    You get 22 Ex.Pts, 145 Coins and a Flower Box for defeating him!
    --------------------------------------------------------
    
    Now go down and you will have to fight the Guys.
    
    ---------------------------------------------
     GRATE GUY: 900 HP "Peace is just a dream."
     KNIFE GUY: 700 HP "Happiness is hip!"
    ---------------------------------------------
    Mario should use his strongest fire attack available on Knife Guy. Mallow
    should use Thunderbolt, while using Honey Syrup and HP Rain periodically. And
    Bowser should just use his Chomp on what ever Gut seems to be taking the least
    beating. I think when the jump up on each other there power increases so try to
    attack them furiously at this point, after a while they will buy the farm, so
    to speak.
    ---------------------------------------------
    
    Now our heroes will jump down and run to Booster Hill to follow Booster.
     ____________
    |Booster Hill|
     ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
    You have to compete with Booster in a race to the top of the hill. Booster
    always wins but you can increase your Flower Points a lot by trying your best.
    Toad gives you a little tutorial so take it if your lost. Jump on the Barrels
    to be boosted forward then run into Booster and the Princess to get a Flower.
    When the Snifits start running amok jump on them to, to get a boost. After you
    make it to the top it's off to Marrymore. You can always come back here to pick
    flowers but the real use for Booster Hill is for Beetle Collecting later.
     _________
    |Marrymore|
     ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
    Now go in the Marrymore Hotel just ahead to the left, stock up on items and buy
    the Happy Pants, Happy Shirt, Hand Gun and the Whomp Glove. Here is a list of
    their stock:
    
    Super Hammer |  70
    Hand Gun     |  75
    Whomp Glove  |  72
    Chomp Shell  |  60
    Happy Shirt  |  38
    Happy Pants  |  38
    Happy Cape   |  38
    Happy Shell  |  38
    B'Tub Ring   | 145
    Mid Mushroom |  20
    Maple Syrup  |  30
    
    The Super Hammer is weaker then the Masher and the Chomp Shell is weaker then
    the Chomp. Equip the Happy Pants and Happy Shirt on to Mallow and Mario
    respectively, then equip the Work Pants on to Bowser. Mario and Mallow have
    low defence, so the increase in attack you get from the Work Pants is cancelled
    out by it's inferiority in the defence department. Also, equip the Hand Gun
    onto Geno and the Whomp Glove onto Mallow. Accessory wise, Mario should be
    wearing the Jump Shoes, Bowser the Amulet, Geno the Wake Up Pin and Mallow
    should wear the Zoom Shoes. Then switch Mallow with Geno.
    
    Now go up the stairs in the Marrymore Hotel and go in the first door, jump on
    the high bookcase and jump to uncover a Surprise Box with a Frog Coin. You can
    also rest in this Hotel; the Regular Room costs 10 Coins and is a normal rest
    stop. But the Deluxe Suite costs 150 dollars and you get room service (Pick Me
    Up for 10 Coins and Kerokero Cola for 150), a working shower and a big bed.
    You also have to pay the bellhop a 10 Coin tip whenever you use him (if you
    don't you wont get a item from him). You get a Flower Tab for staying in the
    suite the first time, but you also can get items from the bellhop, talk to him
    at the bottom of the staircase after you have spent the night and tell him (You
    betcha), he will give you Mid Mushrooms, Pick Me Ups, Max Mushrooms, etc.
    Depending on how many times you have stayed in the suite and how much you
    tipped him. Don't worry about Toadstool, instead exit and go to Booster Pass.
     ____________
    |Booster Pass|
     ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
    Enter the newly opened section to the left of the Lakitus. Jump across the
    rock platforms, avoiding the Spikeys and the apprentice Snifit whow will
    attempt to attack you. If he beats you (you would have to suck pretty bad) he
    becomes Snifit 4, you can keep on losing to the apprentices here to make up to
    Snifit 7. They all go to the top of Booster Tower. Anyway, after beating the
    apprentice keep heading over the platforms until you get to a platform with
    three Boxes, hit them to get a Kerokero Cola, a Frog Coin and a Flower. Now
    exit and go back to Marrymore.
     _________
    |Marrymore|
     ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
    Now head up to the chapel and talk to one of th guests outside, suddenly Raz &
    Rani will get kicked out by a Snifit. So go behind the right steeple and you
    will find a hidden entrance. Now go down the stairs and jump on the cake for
    shits and giggles. Then go upstairs to the left, now help the Snifit break the
    door down by running in unison with him, so run up when he touches the ground.
    You make it through but they close the door on you, so save then walk to the
    door and press "A". Now help Bowser break the door down the same way you did it
    with the Snifit. The breaking down of the door causes Toadstool to fly back and
    all her stuff goes everywhere. Now starts the little mini-game, the only prize
    being a kiss from Toastool, simply talk to all 3 Snifits to get the Ring,
    Brooch and Shoe then jump on Boosters head to get the crown, then talk to
    Booster. Who kisses who relies on how fast you were i.e how many candles lit.
    
    1 to 2 candles lit - Princess kisses Mario, and Bowser kisses Booster.
    3 to 4 candles lit - Bowser kisses Mario.
    4 to 5 candles lit - Booster kisses Mario.
    5 to 6 candles lit - Bower and Booster both kiss Mario.
    
    Now the Toadstool is saved, but before you can take her safely to the Mushroom
    Kingdom you must fight...
    
    ---------------------------------------
     TORTE: 100 HP "Cake! Vatch zee CAKE."
     TORTE: 100 HP "Cake! Vatch zee CAKE."
     BUNDT: 900 HP "Congratulations."
     RASPBERRY: 600 HP "Congratulations!"
    ---------------------------------------
    Torte and his apprentice are invincible, so just focus on the cake (Bundt) and
    hit it with physical attacks, after it moves twice the chefs will get scared
    and run away. Now just get Mario and Bowser to continue attacking Bundt while
    Geno uses items to heal, but he still should attack every now and again. As
    long as you hit him more then twice a turn, you will eventually put out all its
    candles therefore defeating it. Now you have to fight the lower level of the
    cake (Raspberry), so just get everyone to use physical attack and eventually
    Booster and the Snifits will come running in which mean you have deafeated the
    wedding cake. You get 25 coins for beating it.
    ---------------------------------------
    
    Now after Booster eats the cake, exit this part of the chapel and save. Raz &
    Rani wil now go in and get married, now exit to the Mushroom Kingdom (If your
    bored try exiting out of the west exit and tell all the characters "No"
    eventually they will all gang up and bash Mario. Anyway exit out of the east
    exit and you will automatically go to the Mushroom Kingdom.
     ________________
    |Mushroom Kingdom|
     ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
    Now while your in the Mushroom Kingdom talk to the guy you returned the wallet
    to, he'll give you a Frog Coin. Now head to the Chancellor's Room, after the
    big reunion and everyone tells their life story, Toadstool leaves the party as
    fast as she joined it. So exit the castle, but as you exit Toadstool floats
    down using her parasol and she rejoins your party. So switch Bowser with her
    immediately. Now go in the Inn and talk to the kid in the top right corner
    playing a Game Boy, keep bugging him and he'll eventually offer it to you for
    500 Coins, you may as well buy it if you have the money 'cause it's pretty fun.
    You can always come back to buy it. Press "X" after buying it, and the game
    will show you how to access it, see Beetle Mania in Section 6: MINI-GAMES &
    SIDE-QUESTS for a in-depth look at it. Now exit and go to the Tadpole Pond.
     ____________
    |Tadpole Pond|
     ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
    Go talk to Frogfucius, he wil tell you that a star has been sighted on Star
    Hill. So now exit and go to Star Hill (west of Marrymore).
     _________
    |Star Hill|
     ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
    The enemies here are fairly strong especially the rare Mastadoom, make sure you
    stock up on items. Walk to the left and up to the green star flower and press
    "A" to activate it, the giant star will open up so enter it. After Geno talks
    walk around and activate all 5 of the star flowers, also press "A" next to a
    small star with a face to see someones dreams. If you have trouble finding the
    last 2 star flowers look behind the big star, to get to it from the left side
    of the big star. Once activated head to the big star and go through it. now
    activate all 6 star flowers around the perimeter of this section then go
    through the big star. Now walk up to find the Purple Star.

    |Star Hill|
     ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
    Now activate the last 6 flowers then go through the big star to exit from the
    Star Hill, now go to Seaside Town.
     ____________
    |Seaside Town|
     ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
    Explore the town (the people are very weird at the moment) and enter the door
    bottom door out of the three on the left, this shop sells rare items that can
    really only be otherwise acquired through the "Bomb Shop" in Moleville or
    through Yoshi Cookies. They sell:
    
    Bad Mushroom |  30
    Muku Cookie  |  69
    Fright Bomb  | 100
    Fire Bomb    | 200
    Ice Bomb     | 250
    
    So but what you want then head to the Elders House in the very top right corner
    of town. Now talk to the Elder inside and he will tell you to retrieve the star
    that fell in the sea. Now go upstairs and talk to the Frog up there, he is an
    ex-pupil of Frogfucius and he sells extremely good items for major amounts of
    Frog Coins, he is a list of his inventory (in Frog Coins ofcourse).
    
    See Ya        | 10
    Earlier Times | 15
    Exp. Booster  | 22
    Coin Trick    | 36
    Scrooge Ring  | 50
    
    I doubt very much that you will have enough Frog Coins to by the lot, so here
    is the order in which you should by them: Exp. Booster, Scrooge Ring, Coin
    Trick, See Ya and then Earlier Times. Now go in the Inn and save, when you wake
    up the guy is watching you sleep (ewww.. creepy), now save downstairs and exit
    the Seaside Town and go to the Sea.

    the Treasure Box and jump up at it, it's a "Invincibility Star so quickly
    head up in the room killing the Starfish (Zeostar) now jump up onto the ledge
    on your left and run down killing more Zeostar then drop down and head into the
    next section, then run through this section killing as many Zeostars as
    possible as the Star will probably run out about now.
    
    Head left the head up, in the top left corner you will find a doorway so go
    through it. This room contains three Treasure Boxes containing a "Recovery
    Mushroom", a Flower and a Frog Coin. Then jump on the crates and jump down onto
    the Save Box. Now go up and head to the room with all the starfish that had the
    secret doorway. Head down and jump in the water in the next room and swim to
    the whirlpool, this causes Mario to sink. Walk up and to the left in the water,
    it will take you to a grotto. Walk to were the bubble are coming from, this
    will cause Mario to float to the surface. Now jump out of the water and hit the
    
    TreasureBox for a Max Mushroom. Then head down into the next section, this is
    the Sea. Head down to a whirlpool the make your way to the Sunken Ship and
    jump up the sails and go down the crowsnest like a pipe.

    |Sunken Ship|
     ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
    Welcome to the mysterious Sunken Ship, there are notes scattered everywhere so
    read them for a background story on the ship. Firstly, make sure Mallow and
    Geno are in your party then go up and save in that room then head back and to
    the left to the next room. This room like many other rooms in this ship have
    randomly appearing ghosts (so watch out), head to the next room. This room has
    many Dry Bones, these guys are resistant to physical attacks but a single
    special technique will defeat them. Also defeating them doesn't clear them
    from the play area, anyhow head to the next room.
    
    Jump on the crates on your right and drop down into the back right corner,
    you'll get a flower. Head down the stairs and fight some Alley Rats. Now jump
    on the stack of crates before the exit, then jump onto the higher crates and
    then jump repetitively to get 100 coins from the Treasure Box. Go to the next
    room once you've done that. Now head left to the first room and fight the
    G reaper so you can go through. This is Clue Room 1, to get the clue head left
    of the pylon with the cannonball on top of it. Then quickly run around the
    pylon to the other side that is below the green exclamation switch. This will
    cause the Para Trooper to bump the cannonball on to the switch, now collect
    the "Recovery Mushroom" and the 1st clue which is:
    
    > Memo left by Magellean:
    > There is a "S" in the word.
    
    Now exit and fight the next Greaper to get into Clue Room 2, Now hit the 1st
    blue hook block (bottom) when the corresponding trampoline is on the top edge
    of the spotlight. Then hit the 2nd blue hook block (middle) when the
    corresponding trampoline is on the far top edge of the spotlight, then finally
    hit the 3rd blue hook box (top) when the corresponding trampoline is slightly
    lower then the middle spotlight. Now collect the Flower and the 2nd Clue:
    
    > Memo left by Magellean:
    > It is found on the bed of the ocean.
    
    Now exit and fight the next Greaper to get into Clue Room 3, This room is a
    maze but is too hard to make ascii drawing of it or to give you directions so
    just navigate through it yourself and jump on the green exclamation switch and
    collect the "Royal Syrup" and the 3rd Clue which is:
    
    > Memo left by DeGama:
    > It has two vowels.
    
    Now exit and head down to the next room, this room has the Shamen again selling
    the same items he did before so stock up and a Treasure Box guarded by a Dry
    Bones, but you must defeat the Dry Bones many times to get all the coins from
    it. After you've finished head to the next room and fight the next Greaper to
    get into Clue Room 4, in this room follow the coin around the parameter
    collecting all of the coins it drops while not touching the main moving coin,
    then once finished collect it and then the 4th Clue which is:
    
    > Memo left by DeGama:
    > It has four consonants.
    
    Now exit and fight the next Greaper to access Clue Room 5, In this room you
    have to hit the lowest blue hook block, then you have to run under the next
    blue hook block and headbutt the cannonball into it, keep ding this until all
    block have been hit. Then collect the Mushroom and collect the 5th clue:
    
    > Memo left by Van Doren:
    > Two consonants are side by side
    
    Then fight the next Greaper and enter the last clue room, climb the barrel
    stack and jump around up their till a barrel is dislodged. Now face right and
    jump on it till it rolls on a switch, now jump on the other switch and collect
    the "Recovery Mushroom" and the last clue which is:
    
    > Memo left by Van Doren:
    > The "r" comes before the "l".
    
    Now save and head up to the next room, in this room enter the password and then
    press "A' when your facing inside the brass pipe, if the door doesn't open see
    the FAQ for the Answer. Now go into the door but make sure someone is equipped
    with the Fearless Pin.
    
    -------------------------------------------------
     TENTACLES: 200 HP "You wouldn't...EAT me?!"
     TENTACLES: 260 HP "Keep me in cool!"
     TENTACLES: 260 HP "Keep me in cool!"
     TENTACLES: 200 HP "You wouldn't...EAT me?!"
     TENTACLES: 200 HP "You wouldn't...EAT me?!"
     TENTACLES: 260 HP "Keep me in cool!"
     KING CALAMARI: 800 HP "The ship's MINE! SCRAM!"
    -------------------------------------------------
    Just as a starting note, don't worry if your party members get flung off screen
    by the tentacles. They will come back soon scared as it is a fear attack.
    Anyway, firstly defeat the first 2 sets of 3 tentacles by getting Mario to
    use his strongest Fire attack, Geno to attack normally and Mallow should heal
    and use items or use Thunderbolt. After those two waves sets are done attack
    the tentacles either side of King Calamari, then attack King Calamari with full
    force (i.e Super Flame, Hand Gun and Whomp Glove) until he is defeated. You get
    34 Ex.Pts and 100 Coins for defeating him.
    -------------------------------------------------
    
    Now head up to the next room then jump up to the higher door and enter it. You
    can have two plans of attack in this room, either: 1) Kill all of the Alley
    Rats for a clear way to the next room or 2) Hold "Y" and run like hell to the
    next room. Now go down the stairs and fight some Ally Rats then go to the next
    room, now go to the top left corner of the room and jump on the barrels the
    jump over to the platform with the two boxes, ht them repetitively for 200
    Coins, now go up to the next room.
    
    There is a Surprise Box in this room, firstly jump in the bottom right corner
    of the middle spot light, then jump on the doppelganger Mario to reach the
    Treasure Box which has a Kerokero Cola inside. Then go out the next door and
    head down to the next room. In this room go behind the stacks of crates and up
    behind them, you will find a hidden room with a Treasure Box that has a Frog
    Coin inside, so hit the box then head back into the last room, then go down the
    stairs to the next room. Hit the Treasure Box for a "Recovery Mushroom", then
    save. Now climb over the wall and hit the Treasure Box. Hidon is inside, so use
    physical attacks and Mario's Super Jump on him and use Mallows Thunderbolt
    whenever he produces Goombettes. After he bites the dust, you will get
    17 Ex.pts, 100 Coins and the Safety Badge. Now climb back over the wall and
    exit this part of the room via the stairs, then go back down the stairs and
    save, then climb back over the wall and hit the Treasure Box repetitively for
    100 coins.
    
    Head up twice and jump on the water, then swim to the whirlpool. Walk down and
    collect the 5 Frog Coins. You have to head up twice now, then go down the
    stairs killing as many star fish as you can handle as you make it to the next
    room. To get into a secret room head behind the crates and press right then up,
    this secret room has the Safety Ring. Exit the secret room and and climb the
    crates to the far right until you surface, when you surface head left avoiding
    the whirlpool to get to a Frog Coin so jump out of the water to get it, now
    head right into the next room. As soon as you enter some sharks called Bandana
    Reds will attack you, use Mallow's Thunderbolt and physical attacks to beat
    them, after beating them hit the Treasure Box for a "Recovery Mushroom" then
    head upstairs, after the clumsy sharks stuff up keep heading up the stairs...
    to were you fight more Bandana Reds, so use the same approach and when they are
    defeated head up to where you fight Jonathan Jones the pirate shark.
    
    ----------------------------------------------
     JOHNNY: 820 HP "Whoa! It's all over."
     BANDANA BLUE: 150 HP "Color me Blue, mates!"
     BANDANA BLUE: 150 HP "Color me Blue, mates!"
     BANDANA BLUE: 150 HP "Color me Blue, mates!"
     BANDANA BLUE: 150 HP "Color me Blue, mates!"
    ----------------------------------------------
    Get Mario and Geno to use physical attacks on Johnny while Mallow uses
    Thunderbolt to defeat the Bandana Blues and heals occasionally. Then when it's
    one on one get Mario to use physical attacks while healing periodically (every
    3 or so turns). But if you want to avoid the 1 on 1 battle get Mario, Mallow &
    Geno to pick one Bandana Blue each to attack with physical attacks, then when
    there is only Johnny and a Bandana Blue left get everyone to concentrate on
    Johnny. You get 44 Ex.pts and 50 Coins for defeating Johnny.
    ----------------------------------------------
    
    Mario gets the Marine Star, but only temporarily. Head up and jump on the
    trampoline to exit the Sunken Ship, then head to the Seaside Town.

    |Seaside Town|
     ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
    As you enter the Seaside town all the weird inhabitants confront you to hand
    over the star, hand it over straight away. Now switch Mallow with the Princess
    and head to the west side of town were you will fight Yaridovich the Spear...
    
    ------------------------------------------------
     YARIDOVICH 1500 HP "My promotion's at stake!"
     and his Mirage Attack produces:
     YARIDOVICH 500 HP "I'm not the real McCoy!"
    ------------------------------------------------
    Just get all your character to use physical attacks in him, don't worry if he
    uses the Mirage Attack as if you attack him the turn before it will
    automatically select the right one. Get Toadstool to use Group Hug fairly often
    as his attacks like Water Blast can kill the whole party off. Once defeated
    Yaridovich gives you 40 Ex.pts and 50 Coins.
    ------------------------------------------------
    
    Thanks to the help of your new friend Johnny, you have the Marine Star again.

    Town and go to Land's End.
     __________
    |Land's End|
     ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
    As you enter Land's End save. Now jump in the Pot Cannon (enter it like a pipe)
    then when it flicks forward press "B" you will fling over to a yellow platform
    or over it to the ledge. From the yellow platform jump up (screen wise) when
    the platform is at its highest point while you hold "Y" you will uncover a
    Surprise Box with a Flower inside, then head up to the next section. Jump
    between the platform with the Pot Cannon and the higher ledge to uncover a
    floating yellowplatform, then jump in the Pot Cannon and press "B" when it is
    about to rock forward now after you land on the platform or in the hole with
    the 2 chows, jump in the spot just below the chow hole to uncover another
    yellow platform. Jump back down in to the Pot Cannon and if you time it right
    you will be flung up to the higher yellow platform. From here jump when it is
    below the Treasure Box to get a Frog Coin, then jump to the highest ledge and
    jump in the most western corner to uncover a Surprise Box with a Kerokero Cola
    inside. Now head to the next section.
    
    Jump across the platforms and fight Geckits up to the next section, if you fall
    off enter the bottom Pot Cannon to blast yourself back up. Save in the next
    section then head right to where there are two blue flowers, jump on the top
    one, hold "Y" and jump down to uncover a Surprise Box with a Frog Coin inside.
    Now head back left and make your way up the ledges using the spinning flowers
    to get up to the next section. This is the Sky Bridge, so talk to the Shamen if
    you want to play (See Section 6) also if you drop down you can do the Cricket
    Jam Side Quest (Also see Section 6). Make your way across the Sky Bridge and up
    to the desert.
    
    Talk to the mouse and save, then head to the next section. The basic idea here
    is to go down the sand whirlpools that have the Shoguns in them, after going
    down a whirlpool that is one out of a possible two head up and talk to the
    mouse, now head back down and go down the last Shogun guarded sand whirlpool.
    Now your in a cave, save then drop down and hit the Treasure Box, it's a
    "Invincibility Star" so begin running upwards into as many enemies as you can,
    eventually you will land in a cave full of Geckits the effects of the star will
    be gone by now. So head left and jump over the stack of crates and talk to
    Shamen (you can just see) he will sell you a star for 400 Coins. You can buy it
    to clear all the Geckits in the room for lots of Ex.pts, after your finished
    head up into the Belome Temple.
    
    The Shamen on the trampoline will let you use the trampoline forever if you
    pay him 100 Coins, it's not worth paying yet. So head up to the next section
    and jump repetitively under the Treasure Box for 50 Coins. Talk to the Shamen
    to get your "fortune" read, you fortune depends on the order you it the Belome
    Statues tongues. If they are labelled 1, 2 and 3 from left to right the
    combinations look like this:
    
    1 / 2 / 3 = A Yoshi Cookie or a "Recovery Mushroom"
    1 / 3 / 2 = A Yoshi Cookie
    2 / 1 / 3 = 3 Chows
    2 / 3 / 1 = 3 Chows or a Shy Away
    3 / 1 / 2 = 100 Coins or a Frog Coin
    3 / 2 / 1 = 100 Coins
    
    Now jump on the brick step that fell down and collect your fortune, then jump
    up to the next section. Go down the pipe and hit the Treasure Box or fight the
    enemy(ies) then head up to the next room. Hit the Box for lots of coins then
    jump up on top of it using the bricks on the left and jump to uncover a
    Surprise Box with a Frog Coin inside. Now go down the stairs and jump in the
    corner just above the end of the stairs to uncover a Surprise Box with another
    Frog Coin. Now head up and hit the other Box for another Frog Coin, head up to
    the next room. Hit the Belome Statues tongue to get another fortune, if it's
    "Mmm, I'm so hungry! Wish I had something to eat" you can jump on the yellow
    elevator platform. But if you got "Sorry, I'm not accepting visitors past my
    bedtime", exit, re-enter and hit the tongue again until you get the desirable
    message. After going down the elevator head up and down the pipe to fight
    Belome...
    
    ------------------------------------------------
     BELOME: 1200 HP "Gotta yummy in my tummy!"
     he also produces the following enemies:
     MARIO CLONE: 200 HP "......"
     MALLOW CLONE: 150 HP "Ma? Pa? Where are ye?"
     GENO CLONE: 250 HP "Star Pieces...Star...
     BOWSER CLONE: 300 HP "Gr...my castle...
     TOADSTOOL 2: 120 HP "It's tough to be pretty!"
    ------------------------------------------------
    Get Marri to use physical attacks, Geno should use Geno Boost once on Mario but
    the after that he should use Geno Beam when it is just Belome and Geno Blast
    when he has clones as well and Princess should use physical attacks when she is
    not using Group Hug or Items. Only attack the clones with physical attacks when
    Belome is defeated! You get around 41 Exp.pts and 20 Coins for beating Belome.
    ------------------------------------------------
    
    Now Belome is defeated jump on the exclamation switch, then head up to the next
    room, talk to the mouse then go down the pipe to go to Monstro Town.

    Monstermama and she tells you that the star is upstairs. So go upstairs, as you
    see there is just a sea star up there talk to it and it will play the "Star
    Lullaby". While your up there talk to the mouse to unlock a previously
    inaccesable part of Rose Town. Now go back down stairs and talk to Monstermama,
    she gets Sergeant Flutters Para Troopas to help you get up to the Bean Valley.
    Now exit the house but before you go to the Bean Valley you must explore
    Monstro Town more. Enter the next door down, this room has the Chow that awards
    you if you do more then 30 or 100 Super Jumps, talk to the Thwomp seven times
    then walk outside and collect the Temple Key that is now laying on the ground.
    The next room takes you to a battle with a boss called Culex but you must have
    the shiny stone to enter (see Section 6) It's a good idea to save before
    fighting him. Now go into the next door which is the Item Shop, One of Bowsers
    old troops is making a living here, buy the Spiked Link and the Courage Shell
    the equip them, here is a list of there inventory:

    You can also buy dodgy Mushrooms from the Goomba Triplets for 4 Coins each.
    The next door takes you to the Inn (well sort of). Walk up to the Amanita and
    press "A" to have a sleep and to compete in "Hide the Flag" (see Section 6).
    Now exit and head up the stairs to Jinx's Dojo. Jagger one of Bowsers old
    troops is inside, talk to him to compete in the Dojo Tournament (see Section 6
    for info on winning), exit the dojo and save by dropping into the hole in the
    bottom right corner of town. Head into the most right door, jump in the bottom
    left corner (behind the flower bush) to uncover a Surprise Box with a Frog Coin
    inside. Now head up to exit Monstro Town and go to the Tadpole Pond.

    trouble see Section 6: MINI-GAMES & SIDE-QUESTS, once you play that he will ask
    you to play your own song. Once you enter that song he will play all of the
    songs you played into a opus, now exit and go to back to Monstro Town.

    Head left then go up the elevator. Hit the Belome Statue tongue but this time
    you want the "Sorry, I'm not accepting visitors past my bedtime" message, when
    you get that message head down the elevator, then head right and into the
    Golden Belome. Give him the Temple Key then go and collect the 8 Frog Coins,
    2 Flowers, a Fire Bomb, a Royal Syrup and a Max Mushroom. Now backtrack through
    the temple until you get to the section with the Trampoline that has a Shamen
    on it. Give him the 100 Coins if you already haven't then jump on the
    Trampoline, you will emerge in the sand section. Head up to meet the Para
    Troopas so you can "Scale the Cliff" (see section 6, god you have to look at

    Now go in the Inn and save, you can rest here for 30 Coins. But for an extra 30
    Coins on top of that, you will get a Dream Cushion. With the Dream Cushion you
    can see slightly humorous dream sequences and you may have the chance of
    getting Red Essence when you wake up from Toad. Now exit and head to the house
    in the top left corner of Nimbus Land this is Garro's House, once inside go
    look at the statue of Mallow. Once Garro and Mallow both rellies that Mallow is
    Prince Mallow, Garro will paint Mario gold so he can sneak into the castle if
    you talk to him again. As a statue you will eventually be taken to the statue
    hall, head left then save then try going through the left door. Dodo will barge
    in, which means you must avoid getting pecked by him. Jump just before he pecks
    each time and eventually he will run off.
    
    Head left, there will be a Feather on the ground if you avoided detection. Save
    then head left, after the two guards poke all the paint off Mario and run off,
    go to the next room. If you get in a fight that includes an Orbison, defeat
    them first as there Recovery spells can keep the other enemies alive. Anyway
    jump down and hit the box for a Flower. Head down, right, up then left to get
    back to this room, but this time head up to the next room. Hit the box ahead
    for a Flower, if your low on HP go down the bottom right door as the room it
    leads to has a Box with a "Recovery Mushroom" inside, but otherwise head into
    the top left door and follow it up into a room with stairs.
    
    After defeating the Jawful jump where he was standing to uncover a Surprise Box
    with a Frog Coin inside. From below the Surprise Box you just uncovered head
    directly down (screen wise), follow the hidden path to a dead end then jump to
    uncover a Surprise Box with another Frog Coin inside. Now head right to the
    next room, you have found all the capture people of Nimbus Land. Talk to the
    guy on the far left to get Castle Key 1, then talk to the marshmallow person
    wearing blue. Head left, up the stairs then down twice to get to back to the
    hallway. Fight the Heavy Troopa then press A to open the middle door and head
    up, the Shy Away in the next room is watering an egg (don't ask why), so walk
    up to the egg, talk to it then select (Sure) you will now fight Shelly...
    
    --------------------------------------
     SHELLY: 500 HP "Slow down!"
     BIRDO: 777 HP "I just love life!"
     she produces these if you defend:
     EGGBERT: 10 HP "What a glorious day!
    --------------------------------------
    Attack Shelly till the shell breaks open and Birdo pops out. Once Birdo appears
    simply use physical attacks on her while Princess uses Group Hug occasionally.
    Also if you defend the eggs that Birdo shots at you Eggberts will surround
    Birdo, and if you attack Eggberts they will explode causing 80 Hit Points worth
    of damage. This isn't practical though cause you could have caused more damage
    by attacking those turns. Eventually Birdo will give you, giving you around
    20 Ex.Pts and 30 Coins.
    --------------------------------------
    
    Collect the Castle Key 2 that Birdo throws out. Use it to open the door behind
    the egg by pressing "A", then head up. Fight the Pinwheel immediately or he
    will blow you off the platform, then jump on the Treasure Box and jump again
    uncover a Surprise Box with a Frog Coin inside. The Treasure Box you are
    standing on has a Flower in it, but you will have to drop down to get it which
    means backtracking back to this room after. Head up to the next room. Read the
    note on the door, Mallow's parents are inside. After Bowser tries to ram the
    door down head up to the next room. Fight the Heavy Troopa then go in the next
    room, after breaking in on Valentina's meeting with Dodo And Shy Away. Head up
    to the next room and save, switch Bowser with Princes and put him in the middle
    slot. Keep heading up through the passages defeating Blue Birds until you see
    a shadow on the floor, stand on he shadow and jump to uncover a hidden platform
    then jump on the platform and jump again to hit the Box and you will get a
    "Invincibility Star". So quickly run ahead into the Blue Birds, Dodo the off
    the edge of the castle. Once you land near the hot spring guards jump on the
    trampoline, then heal everyone with HP Rain (especially Bowser). Then jump on
    the trampoline and you will catch up to Valentina who is being held back by
    the locals, you will fight her and Dodo now...
    
    -----------------------------------------------
     DODO: 1000 HP "I'm starved...later!"
     VALENTINA: 2000 HP "I tell ya, he's NOTHING!"
    -----------------------------------------------
    As the battle begins Dodo picks up the middle character (which should be
    Bowser)and takes them to a One on One battle. If you use Poison Gas for the
    first turn then use the Spiked Link after that you should cause heaps of
    damage, also defend his beak attacks (press B when he pecks you) you should
    make him fly away in no time. Now it goes to the battle between Valentina and
    the other two, use physical attacks until Bowser and Dodo come back. Then get
    Mario and Bowser to use physical attacks on Valentina while Mallow heals and
    uses items. Eventually they will fly away giving you 54 Ex.pts and 200 Coins.
    -----------------------------------------------
    
    After Valentina flies away a Key lands on Mallow, Mallow uses the key and is
    re-united with his parents. After the gang have a chat, King Nimbus will tell
    you that a Star fell into the Volcano. Now head down and go in the room King
    and Queen Nimbus were being held in and talk to the guard, he will give you a
    Flower Jar. Now head down to the room with 3 doors that was before Birdo, jump
    in the top left corner near the bird cage and you will uncover a Surprise Box
    with a Frog Coin inside. Now exit the castle and head into the house in the top
    right corner of Nimbus Land. You will find Croco inside, so talk to him and he
    will run out leaving the Signal Ring behind. So pick it up and exit the house,
    now walk directly down (screen wise) and follow he hidden path to the Shy Away,
    talk to the Shy Away and he/she will give you the Fertilizer. Now go down the
    hole and jump on the warp trampoline to exit Nimbus Land, then go to Rose Town.
     _________
    |Rose Town|
     ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
    Head up into the newly opened section and enter the house. Talk to the Gardener
    inside and give him the Seed and Fertilizer, he will plant the seed and use the
    fertilizer making a giant beanstalk grow. Exit the house and climb the crates
    to get to the beanstalk, Mario will climb it to the clouds, hit the two
    Treasure Boxes to get the Lazy Shell Armour and Weapon. So go back down the
    beanstalk then down and into Gaz's House have a rest, save, then exit and go to
    the Nimbus Land.
     ___________
    |Nimbus Land|
     ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
    Go down the top hole and talk to the guards, head right then jump in the Hot
    Spring to fully recover. Then head down into the Barrel Volcano.

    Some words of advice for this section: attack the Corkpedites body and use weak
    magic attacks to defeat Vomer. Switch Bowser for Princess the walk down to the
    next section. There are some small stepping stones below, follow them to the
    secret section. Hit the boxes for two Flowers then exit and jump back across
    the stones. Climb the rocks on left to go up to the next section. Climb up to
    the next section but avoid the Vomer. Hit the Treasure Box in the next section
    for a Flower, then head up and hit the next box for loads of coins. Head to
    the next section. Hit the box for an "Invincibility Star" and quickly run
    ahead, climb up, then run into the Corkpedite, the star usually runs out around
    now. Head left to the next section. Head up past the Vomers to the next area.
    
    Walk to the left of the lava pool and take a running jump to collect the Frog
    Coin, then head up to the next section. Jump across the stepping stones to the
    nest section, but be careful and time your jumps if you want to avoid fighting
    the Pyrospheres. Go back through the doorway then jump on the lava, you will
    fly up to the Frog Coin. Now go back into the next section. Jump up the Donut
    blocks to get to the first Frog Coin, then walk around and jump up to collect
    the other Frog Coin, now head to the next section. Quickly run left to the
    next section while avoiding  the Magmus the Stumpet shots out at you. Hit the
    Box to get a Flower then climb up and hit the other box for a Frog Coin, save
    then head up to the next section.
    
    Defeat the Stumpet then head around to the next section. Climb up carefully
    then head down to yet another area. Climb up and fight the Corkpedite, then
    head left to the next section (are you sick of me saying that yet..) Defeat
    another Stumpet then head to the next area. Climb up the rocks then hit the
    box for some coins and talk to the weird looking mushroom person (His name is
    Hinopio) to enter his Hino Mart. The first store sells items, here is a list:
    
    Mid Mushroom | 20
    Maple Syrup  | 30
    Pick Me Up   |  5
    Able Juice   |  4
    Freshen Up   | 50
    
    The second stall lets you rest for 30 Coins. And the final stall sells you
    armour. Buy all the Fire armour and equip it all. Here is a useless list:
    
    Fire Shirt | 90
    Fire Pants | 90
    Fire Cape  | 90
    Fire Shell | 90
    Fire Dress | 90
    
    Once your finished head out of the door to the right. Now save and head up,
    make your way across the Donut bridge very carefully to the next section were
    you fight...
    
    --------------------------------------------------
     CZAR DRAGON: 1400 HP "Flamin' hot, right at ya!"
     ZOMBONE: 1800 HP "Hey! We're not done yet!"
    --------------------------------------------------
    Get Mario to use physical attacks, Mallow to use Snowy and Toadstool to use
    physical attacks when she is not using Group Hug or items. When Czar is down he
    will resurrect himself as Zombone. Use the same strategy on Zombone except use
    Shocker instead of Snowy. Once he is down you get 50 Ex.Pts.
    --------------------------------------------------
    
    Now Zombone is defeated. Head up to the next section, you are about to get the
    Red Star but the Axem Rangers swipe it. Chase them all the way out of the
    Barrel Volcano, then you must fight them on their huge ship called Blade.
    
    Go, go, Axem Rangers!
    
    --------------------------------------------
     AXEM PINK: 400 HP "Red, WRONG POSITION!"
     AXEM BLACK: 550 HP "You're timing stinks!"
     AXEM RED: 800 HP "I'm all thumbs today."
     AXEM YELLOW: 600 HP "We're lookin' GOOD!"
     AXEM GREEN: 450 HP "Are we done here?"
     AXEM RANGERS: 999 HP "It's a melee!"
    --------------------------------------------
    The best strategy is to bring them down one by one, while Toadstool heals
    periodically. Firstly go for Axem Pink using physical attacks, her healing
    special is too much of a threat. Once she is down go for Axem Black, Mario and
    Toastool should use physical attacks while Mallow uses Shocker. Then go for
    Axem Green, do the same as you did for Black but use Snowy instead of Shocker.
    Then go for Axem Yellow Mario should use Super Jump on him while the other
    attack physically. Finally take out Axem Red by using the same modus operandi
    as Axem Green. Once they are all down the will form up as Axem Rangers which
    uses the disastrous Breaker Beam every three or so turns. Get Toastool to use
    Group Hug every time the Beam is discharged and attack using Shocker and
    phyical attacks. Eventually they will submit, giving you a whopping 17 Ex.Pts.
    --------------------------------------------
    
    Blade crashes into the background and Mario is awarded the Red Star.
    
        ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~
        ~ 6 Star Pieces have finally        ~

    Now go into the Castle and talk to Mallows parents, they will let you use the
    Royal Bus. So now exit the castle and head left to the Royal Bus Station and
    talk to the engineer. You will now get a lift to Bowser's Keep.
     _____________
    |Bowser's Keep|
     ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
    Firstly switch Mallow with Bowser, as he will make some of the more annoying
    enemies run away. Head up to the room where you fought Bowser at the very
    start of the game, the bridge that fell down has been replaced by Donut Blocks.
    Now head up to a very dark room, navigate your way through the darkness to the
    next section (there is a Box with a "Recovery Mushroom" in there somewhere).
    The next room has Croco, but he is making himself useful by selling hot gear,
    head through the doorway in the bottom left corner first as there are two
    Treasure Boxes with 150 Coins and a "Recovery Mushroom", then go and talk to
    Croco here is his inventory:
    
    Mid Mushroom | 20
    Maple Syrup  | 30
    Pick Me Up   |  5
    Freshen Up   | 50
    Fire Shirt   | 90
    Fire Pants   | 90
    Fire Cape    | 90
    Fire Shell   | 90
    Fire Dress   | 90
    
    Now head up to the next room, This contain the 6 Doors (see Section 6 for info
    on clearing this part). Once you have completed 4 Courses head right to the
    next room, you will drop down into a room with a Save Box, so save then head up
    where you willfight...
    
    --------------------------------------------
     MAGIKOOPA: 1600 HP "That's...my child?"
     he summons these with his magic:
     JINX CLONE: 320 HP "I'm the REAL thing!"
     KING BOMB: 500 HP "I LIVE to explode!"
     BAHAMUTT: 500 HP "Give me a chance, here."
    --------------------------------------------
    It's not so much Magikoopa that will cause you trouble here, it's the monsters
    he summons. Get everyone to use physical attacks on him while Toadstool heals,
    just keeping attacking him and his monsters until you nock enough sense into
    him, you get around 10 Ex.pts and Coins for your victory.
    --------------------------------------------
    
    After Magikoopa turns back to his proper blue colour and Bowser and him
    reminisce. He will produce a Magic Tresure Box that never runs out of coins,
    talk to him to be rejuvenated fully. Now go in the door on the left, inside
    Croco is selling more goods buy all the special armour and equip it, here is a
    list:
    
    Mid Mushroom |  20
    Maple Syrup  |  30
    Pick Me Up   |   5
    Freshen Up   |  50
    Hero Shirt   | 100
    Prince Pants | 100
    Star Cape    | 100
    Heal Shell   | 100
    Royal Dress  | 100
    
    Once your finished exit and go through the right door, in this room simply run
    up while avoiding Thwomps and fighting Big Berthas to the next room. Walk up
    in the next room to fight Boomer on the Chandeliers.
    
    ----------------------------------------
     BOOMER: 2000 HP "It's all over now..."
    ----------------------------------------
    He is a cinch, just use physical attacks when he is blue in colour and use
    special attacks when he is red in colour. Toadstool should be the designated
    healer as per usual. You get around 19 Ex.pts and 9 Coins for beating Boomer.
    ----------------------------------------
    
    Now the Chandeli-Ho will take you to the top of Bowser's Keep, where you will
    fight...
    
    -------------------------------------------
     EXOR: 1800 "Gotta mow the lawn soon."
     LEFT EYE: 300 "I can't see a thing!"
     NEOSQUID: 800 "I'm so utterly alone..."
     RIGHT EYE: 500 "I've got an astigmatism!"
    -------------------------------------------
    Get Toadstool to heal nearly every turn, Bowser should attack Neosquid while
    Mario uses Ultra Jump. Once at least one of the eyes has been taken out, attack
    Exor with a bombardment of physical attacks. If the eyes wake up again quickly
    use Mario's Ultra Jump, Bowser's Bowser Crush and Toastool's Psych Bomb.
    Once Exor is defeated you will get 34 Ex.Pts then you will be sucked into his
    mouth with a wall of fire.
    -------------------------------------------
    
    Exor's mouth leads to the Gate.

    NOTE: To find out what you should get in preperation for Smithy, please scroll
          to the end of this sub-section.
    
    Firstly switch Bowser with Geno. Head upwards into the next section, jump on
    the nut repetitively while facing right it will spin across the bolt to the
    other side. Now jump of, save and then head up to the next section. Make your
    way across more bolts to the next section. Fight the Ameboids then jump on the
    switch and head up to the next section. Save then jump in the bottom left
    corner to uncover a Surprise Box with a "Recovery Mushroom" inside. Continue to
    the next section, hit the Box to get the "Ultra Hammer" (The Lazy Shell is
    stronger). Then jump on the trampoline and make your way across the bolts, jump
    on the trampoline and walk up to the giant clock, which will start a battle.
    
    ----------------------------------------------------
     DING-A-LING: 1200  Factory "Wake up sleepy heads!"
     COUNT DOWN: 2400  Factory "We're into overtime!"
     DING-A-LING: 1200  Factory "Wake up sleepy heads!"
    ----------------------------------------------------
    You should take out Count Down first as it is the biggest threat, get everyone
    to use physical attacks while Princess uses Group Hug. Once it is out of order
    take out the Ding-a-lings (sounds rude) the same way. You get 67 Ex.pts and 100
    Coins for defeating them.
    ----------------------------------------------------
    
    Now save and jump on the trampoline. Head up and jump on the conveyor belt and
    hit the box to get a "Recovery Mushroom" , then drop down onto the white slate
    platform and walk onto the next platform when they meet, then jump off onto
    the conveyor belt when you get close (it doesn't matter if you jump off as you
    will land, into a secret section just head up and hit the boxes for a Flower
    and a "Recovery Mushroom"), Anyway head up to the next section. Run past the
    conveyor belts spewing out a constant stream of enemies and head up to the
    next section. Follow the conveyor belts and the path to a Treasure Box, hit it
    to get a Royal Syrup. Head down on the conveyor belt and jump on the white
    slate platform, jump off to the next conveyor belt when it gets close. Go left
    and hit the Treasure Box for a Max Mushroom, then head up to the next section.
    
    Make your way up the conveyor belt stairs fighting machine made Bowyers on the
    way up. Follow the path to another set of conveyor belt stairs, scale them
    then head up to the next section and save. Head up again, ignore the enemies
    and head to the top left corner into a small section with two boxes containing
    a Flower and a "Recovery Mushroom". Head back and fight the machine made
    Yaridovich, after defeating him the grey brick block that was blocking the
    hole explodes. Jump down and you will fight...
    
    --------------------------------------------
     CLOAKER: 1200 HP "I love cold hard steel!"
     DOMINO: 900 HP "MAGIC! DEAL with it!"
     and either...
     EARTH LINK: 2500 HP "What a royal pain!"
     or
     MAD ADDER: 1500 HP "I'm alive and kicking.
    --------------------------------------------
    If you defeat Cloaker first you will fight Domino riding Mad Adder, and if you
    defeat Domino first you will fight Cloaker riding Earth Link. I personally
    think you should defeat Cloaker first (use physical attacks while Toadstool
    heals). Then attack Mad Adder (don't bother attacking Domino) until he is
    defeated and you get around 40 Ex.pts.
    --------------------------------------------
    
    Now head left into the Factory.
     _______
    |Factory|
     ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
    Head up and dispose of the Mad Mallets the Clerk sicks on you, then fight him:

     MAD MALLET: 200 HP "Work, work, work..."
     MAD MALLET: 200 HP "Work, work, work..."
    ------------------------------------------
    Extremely easy, just take out the Clerk with physical attacks then if the Mad
    Mallets don't run off take them also out with physical attacks. You get 24
    Ex.pts and 21 Coins for defeating him.
    ------------------------------------------

     POUNDER: 180 HP "Wham bam SLAM!"

    Then head up and fight the Director..
    
    ---------------------------------------------

     POUNDETTE: 150 HP "Love conquers ALL."
    ---------------------------------------------
    Use the same modus operandi as the last two, you may have to heal if you suck.
    You get 61 Ex.pts and 92 Coins for defeating him.
    ---------------------------------------------
    
    Now head up and save, and then head up to the next room to fight...
    
    -------------------------------------------------------
     FACTORY CHIEF: 1000 HP "Who DARES to fight ME?!"
     GUNYOLK: 1500 HP "If we're beaten, the boss is alone!
    -------------------------------------------------------
    As soon as you begin get Geno to cast Geno Boost on Mario and Toadstool to cast
    Mute onto Gunyolk (this will prevent the Breaker Beam). Now use physical
    attacks on them while Toadstool heals and eventually they will be defeated,
    giving you 60 Ex.pts and 100 Coins.
    -------------------------------------------------------
    
    Now head back down and save. Time for some preparation:
    You should have these Items: 4×Max Mushrooms, 4×Royal Syrups, 3×Crystalline,
    3×Power Blast, 4×Pick Me Up, 4×Kerokero Cola and the Star Egg.
    And your party should be equipped like so:
    Mario     - Lazy Shell, Super Suit or Hero Shirt and the Attack Scarf.
    Geno      - Star Gun, Star Cape and the Scrooge Ring.
    Toadstool - Frying Pan, Royal Dress and the Safety Ring.
    
    then head up and jump on the switch to fight Smithy...
    
    ---------------------------------------------
     SMITHY: 2000 HP "Eh?! Not bad!"
     SMELTER: 1500 HP "I brush after each meal!"
     who produces on mass:
     SHYPER: 400 HP "Ooh! This'll be fun!"
    ---------------------------------------------
    Okay! The penultimate battle! Okay start off buy using Crystalline and Power
    Blast. Now get Mario to use the Lazy Shell on Smelter while Geno uses his
    Geno Blast special and Toadstool attacks the Smelter with her Frying Pan (while
    using Group Hug when needed). When Smelter is down get everyone to use physical
    attacks on Smithy. You know this battle is finished when Aero and Drill Bit
    jump down to calm Smithy down, which aggravates him more.
    ---------------------------------------------
    
    So he bangs the ground so hard the floor gives way and everyone falls down to
    an ominous landscape were you have the ultimate battle against Smithy's true
    form; a metamorphosing, chrome plated, cyborg, mean, bastard of a blacksmith.
    
    -------------------------------------------------------------
     SMITHY: 8000 HP > Default Head - "This isn't good at all!"
                       Tank Head    - "Don't shock me! DON'T!"
                       Magic Head   - "Good magic, bad defense."
                       Vault Head   - "Nothin' can hurt me!"
                       Box Head     - "What's hidden inside?!"
     SMITHY: 1000 HP "What a heavy head!"
    -------------------------------------------------------------
    Smithy's head changes constantly (It's a bit annoying). Just get Mario to use
    the Lazy Shell, Geno to use Geno Flash and Toadstool should use items and Group
    Hug when needed, but she should also use the Frying Pan when she is free to do
    so. Also, Mario should use Ultra Flame if his head is the Treasure Box. After a
    while he will die and the final star will be Mario's.

    Type: Side-Quest
    Reward(s): Attack Scarf and Super Suit.
    
    Once you do 30 or more jumps in a row using the Super Jump, go and talk to the
    Chow in Monstro Town and he will give you the Attack Scarf. Also if you do 100
    jumps in a row see him again to get the Super Suit. Getting the Super Suit is
    *THE* most challenging thing in the game. For tips on super jumping, I suggest
    you look at "Rotaj Russell's Guide to Super Jumping FAQ" that can be viewed at
    GameFAQs. His FAQ goes more in-depth then I could/would ever go on the subject
    of Super Jumping.

    Type: Mini-Game
    Reward(s): Frog Coins and Flowers
    
    SPECIAL CONTROLS: Control Pad- Move left and right in the Rapids Course
                      B Button- · Swim against current in the Rapids
                                · Jump during Barrel Jumping Event
    
    COST: The trampoline costs 30 Coins to use.
    
    RAPIDS COURSE:
    You start from "START" if your coming from the Kero Sewers or the trampoline,
    you start from the "ALT*START" if your coming from the bucket in Moleville.
    The biggest mistake people make in the Midas River Course is tapping the B
    button really fast, this may make you journey faster but it makes it much
    harder. You can manoeuvre from one side of the river to the other quite easily
    by hitting the button at about 3 strokes per 2 seconds. The only time you
    should tap the button really fast is when you are trying to scale up the bank
    from the other side of a fork. For example take the first fork in the river,
    the only way to get the coin that is just down the right stream of the fork is
    to drop down and get it, then stroke slowly to the left to get to the bank,
    then tap "B" furiously while holding left so you can scale the bank to get to
    the left stream of the fork. Look below for a Map and the grotto guide.

    GROTTO GUIDE:
    You can only get the items from a grotto once.
    * Cave A takes you through a grotto with many monsters playing, but nothing
      happens to Mario. You emerge from this grotto at point 1.
    * Cave B takes you into a grotto were a Sky Troopa and a Crook are fighting
      over a flower, but Mario gets the Flower in the end. You emerge from this
      grotto at point 2.
    * Cave C takes you to a grotto were Mario gets forked by a Forkie and loses
      coins. You emerge from this grotto at point 3.
    * Cave D takes you to a grotto were a Lakitu is fishing and a Goombette
      retrieves a fish for their Goomba family. Mario gets a Frog Coin in this
      grotto and he emerges at point 4.
    * Cave E takes you to a grotto were a Crook is being harassed by Thwomps, you
      get a Flower in this grotto and you emerge at point 5.
    
    BARREL JUMPING EVENT:
    The Barrel Jumping Event is quite easy. Just bump into the first barrel, then
    jump to the second, then jump to the third, then bump in the fourth and repeat.
    So in other words: Bump, Jump, Jump, Bump, Bump, Jump, Jump, Bump, Bump, Jump,
    Jump, Bump, Bump, Jump and Jump. Watch out for fish as you will lose coins if
    you get hit by them.
    
    EXCHANGE RATES:
    At the end of the Midas River the operator will swap you Frog Coin(s) for how
    many coins you collected, any coins that are not exchanged for Frog Coins are
    kept by him and will be added to how many coins you collect next time you try
    the Midas River Course. The exchange rates are related to how many coins you
    collect on your way down. Except the first time you go down were it is always
    1 Frog Coin for 60 coins. The exchange rates are as follows:
    
        > 69 Coins = 1 Per 80 Coins
     70 - 79 Coins = 1 Per 75 Coins
     80 - 89 Coins = 1 Per 70 Coins
     90 - 99 Coins = 1 Per 60 Coins
         100 Coins = 1 Per 50 Coins

    |Goomba Thumpin' Mini-Game|
     ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
    Type: Mini-Game
    Reward(s): Frog Coins and Flower Products
    
    RULES:
    This Mini-Game cost 10 coins to play. In it you have to jump on as many Goombas
    as possible, you get 1 point for jumping on a Goomba, 3 for jumping on a Gold
    Goomba and you lose 1 point for jumping on a Spikey. You get 30 seconds to
    get more then the goal, and if you get more then the goal 2 more then your
    score becomes the next goal.
    
    STRATEGY:
    The best idea is to stay in the middle and try to do as many multiple bounces
    as possible, to do this hold "Y" and manoeuvre so after jumping on one Goomba
    you land on the next. This is easiest between the top pipe and the bottom pipe.
    To get as many prizes as possible never get more then the Goal, match it
    instead. The goal starts at 20 points, so you match the 2O pts and you'll get a
    Flower Tab and the new Goal will be 22 points. Then you'll match the 22 pts and
    you'll get a Flower Jar and the new Goal will be 24 point. Now continue with
    the strategy (all prizes after this are Frog Coins).

    Type: Mini-Game
    Reward(s): Yoshi Cookies
    
    STARTING THE RACE / BETING:
    Well to play you need Yoshi Cookies, if you don't have any Yoshi Cookies talk
    to the Red Yoshi that is between the two huts on the left side of the race
    track. Then go talk to Boshi and select that you want to race. Now he will
    tell you Yoshi's odds, then you can select either to race Yoshi (compete) or
    watch Yoshi (leave up to chance), then he will ask you how much you want to
    wager. The Wager determines how much you will be payed off according to Yoshi's
    odds but it also determines how much you will lose if Yoshi doesn't win.
    For Example, If Yoshi's odds are 2:1 and you wagered 3 Cookies, the payoff is
    calculated by 2×3 which of course equals 6, pretty easy huh?
    
    RACING:
    Winning the race is basically down to rhythm, The best technique is to hold
    the controller so you hold it kind of like a GameBoy (think of the Control Pad
    as the GameBoy's screen), just cradle the button end of the Controller with
    your hands and rest your left thumb on the B Button and your right thumb on the
    A Button. Now press the two buttons alternatively to the rhythm of the cymbals
    in the background of the music. If you think you will panic if your losing
    don't look at the screen, as it will put your rhythm off indefinitely.

    Type: Mini-Game
    Reward(s): Mushrooms, Wilt Shrooms, Rotten Mushes, Moldy Mushes, Max Mushrooms
               and the Bright Card.
    
    LOCATED:
    After saving Toadstool go into Booster Tower and head up until you find Knife
    Guy, talk to him to play his Juggling Game.
    
    RULES:
    Knife Guy juggles balls at a random speed for a random amount of time, once he
    finishes you have to walk at which hand the yellow ball lands in. He awards you
    Wilt Shrooms first, then when you get better he awards you Rotten Mushes, then
    Moldy Mushes. If win enough he will award you the Bright Card & Max Mushrooms.
    
    STRATEGY:
    My strategy is not to follow the yellow ball as you will most likely lose it.
    This best idea is to stare blankly at the screen focused on Knife Guy's head so
    that your eyes only detect the movement of the balls, it seems easier this way
    to judge which hand it lands in. Don't ask me why!

    |Beetle Mania|
     ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
    Type: Mini-Game
    Reward(s): Nada, Zip, Zilch and Nothing!
    
    HOW TO PLAY:
    You control a small beetle that shoots stars when you press "A", the aim of the
    game is to shoot Koopa shells for points. Then when they explode stars fly out
    from them, if these stars hit another Koopa shell it will explode, thus
    creating a chain reaction. Each time this happens the points you get from
    exploding them doubles. So it goes from 1 to 2 to 4 to 8 to 16 to 32 ect. Also
    every time you get about 15,000 points, a heart will fall down. If you grab
    this heart it will be easier for you to regenerate after being hit by a Koopa
    shell or star, To regenerate tap "A" furiously.
    
    BACKGROUNDS:
    If Geno or Princess are the 1st ally in your party it will be Clouds.
    If Bowser or Mallow are the 1st ally in your party it will be a forest level
    from Super Mario World.

    Reward(s): Coins and Frog Coins
    
    HOW TO START:
    After defeating Yaridovich, go into the bottom left store in Seaside Town, this
    is Beetles Are Us and it is the office for Beetle Racing on Booster Hill.
    The initiation fee is 100 Coins then for every time you rent a Beetle Box it's
    an extra 50 Coins. Buy a Beetle box then go to Booster Hill to compete in
    Beetle Racing.
    
    STRATEGY:
    Simply jump on as many barrels as you can to get a boost forward, you will have
    to time your jumps by using the sound the barrel makes when you get close to
    the edge of the screen. When the Snifits start running ahead jump on them for a
    boost forward too. And finally, only jump when you are either jumping on
    something to get a boost or collecting a beetle. As jumping slows you down
    marginally.
    
    TRADING IN:
    After you collect some beetles head back to Beetles Are Us and talk to the
    snifit inside. He will trade you Coins, for the amount and type of beetles as
    follows:
    
    Male   (Large) - 50 Coins
    Female (Small) -  1 Coin
    Golden (Gold!) -  1 Frog Coin

    STRATEGY:
    On all courses time your jumps so you jump over the bullets onto the next
    block. On the Special and Expert Courses jump on the spot to prevent the Donut
    Blocks from falling. If you make it over once the Shamen will give you the
    chance of doubling your prize, but you will have to go over the course again
    and the bullets fires in a more acqward sequence. You can double your prize
    twice so that means 20 Coins on the Normal Course, 32 Coins on the Special
    Course and 4 Frog Coins on the Expert Course.

    Type: Side-Quest
    Reward(s): Quartz Charm
    
    OPENING THE SEALED DOOR:
    Go to Moleville and enter house in the top left corner of town, Now talk to the
    man mole in the corner (His name was Docherty in the beta version) and buy some
    fireworks off him for 500 Coins. Now exit, head to the right and talk to the
    little girl mole by the crates, swap the Fireworks for the Shiny Stone. Now
    go to Monstro Town and press "A" at the sealed door to open it. Now enter to
    fight Culex.
    
    DEFEATING CULEX AND HIS CRYSTALS:
    --------------------------------------------------
     CULEX: 4096 HP "A little off, eh?"
     FIRE CRYSTAL: 2500 HP "I gotta vacuum tonight!
     WATER CRYSTAL: 1600 HP "Get me back underground!
     EARTH CRYSTAL: 3200 HP "I hate being awakened!"
     WIND CRYSTAL: 800 HP "Whhhhhhooooo...
    --------------------------------------------------
    You will need the Lazy Shell, the Safety Ring, the Star Egg, around 3 Maple
    Syrups and some Energizers. Now have Geno & Toadstool in your team and equip
    the Lazy Shell and Safety Ring on Toadstool, this will make her almost
    impenetrable to all of their attacks (But Culex's physical attack & Dark Star
    will still take out a fair whack). Now as soon as the battle starts get Geno to
    cast Geno Boost on the Princess. Now get Geno and Mario to attack Culex with
    physical attacks until they die, when this happens don't revive them. The basic
    idea is to get Princess to use the Star Egg constantly for 150 HP worth of
    damage on all enemies. She will also need to use Therapy when her HP gets low,
    Maple Syrups when her FP gets low & Energizer whenever Culex casts Shredder to
    keep the damage caused by the Star Egg to 150 HP. Eventually the crystals will
    die or run out of FP, if all enemies on screen run out of FP use "Come Back" on
    Mario & Geno and get them to join in using the "Star Egg" as well. Once they
    are all defeated you get 244 Ex.pts and the Quartz Charm. With this strategy it
    is possible to beat them at Level 15, but Level 20 is far more safer.

     JINX: 600 HP "You're just a beginner!"
    ----------------------------------------
    Jinx is much harder then Jagger, but in the first round he holds back and
    only uses Jinxed and Valor Up. Use the same strategy as Jagger, but heal more
    often.
    ----------------------------------------
     JINX: 800 HP "Sympathy!? Not from me!"
    ----------------------------------------
    Things start to heat up! Now he uses Silver Bullet which can easily kill your
    party off in 3 turns. Use Crystalline and Power Blast at the start of the round
    then lay into him with physical attacks, Toadstool should use Group Hug almost
    every turn.
    -----------------------------------------
     JINX: 1000 HP "Ooh! I'm gonna hurt ya!"
    ----------------------------------------
    Oh my God! Now he uses Bombs Away which inflicts serious damage. Use
    Crystalline and Power Blast right away, then lay into him like before. Keep all
    your party members alive by getting Toadstool to use "Group Hug" every turn.
    If you want to defeat him easily get the Lazy Shell armour and the Star Egg,
    then equip the Lazy Shell onto Toadstool and keep using the Star Egg on him
    until he dies. Once he is finished you are awarded the Jinx Belt.

    Next is Barrel Counting, simply count the first and second set of barrels to
    continue. There is a trick to this section but you must have good eyes, the
    first room has a default amount of 12 barrels and the second room has a default
    amount of 43 barrels. So all you have to do is count the slightly lighter
    looking barrels (Dr. Tooper has added) then add them to the default amounts to
    get the answer (you do need good eyes though!). Now the next section has a
    riddle thingy, if you have trouble with it here is the answer:
    
    After talking to Dr. Tooper,
    Talk to the monster that says "I outrode ...." first,
    then talk to the monster that says "I placed fourth ....",
    then talk to the monster that says "I placed the same ....",
    then finally talk to the monster that says "I placed third ...."
    
    Then hit the Treasure Box in the next room to get "Rock Candy".
    
    PUZZLE COURSE 2:
    This course starts off with the "Coin Collecting" game, in it Mario and Dr.
    Topper take turns at getting coins from a Treasure Box. In each turn you must
    take between 1 and 4 coins, the person who collects the 21st coin wins. The
    best strategy is to take the 15th coin then after Dr. Topper has his go collect
    up to the 20th Coin and stop, he will now get the 21st Coin.
    Next it's the "Magic Buttons" here is a diagram of the buttons:
    
               1
             5   2
           9   6   3
        13  10   7   4
          14  11   8
            15  12
              16
    
    Jump on the buttons 2, 8, 9 & 15; or 3, 5, 12 & 14 to clear the room.
    Now it's "Ball Solitaire" the solution uses the same diagram as the "Magic
    Buttons":
    
     1) Kick the ball on 1 over the ball on 2,
     2) kick the ball on 9 over the ball on 5,
     3) kick the ball on 10 over the ball on 6,
     4) kick the ball on 12 over the ball on 11,
     5) kick the ball on 14 over the ball on 10,
     6) kick the ball on 16 over the ball on 15,
     7) kick the ball on 13 over the ball on 14,
     8) kick the ball on 3 over the ball on 7,
     9) kick the ball on 15 over the ball on 11,
    10) kick the ball on 1 over the ball on 2,
    11) kick the ball on 4 over the ball on 8,
    12) kick the ball on 6 over the ball on 7,
    13) kick the ball on 12 over the ball on 8, and
    14) then finally kick the ball on 4 over the ball on 3
    
    Then hit the Treasure Box in the next room to get "Rock Candy".

     VERSION HISTORY
    -=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-
    Version 0.7 15/12/00
    Story, Controls, Battle Party, FAQ, Inventory Lists & the Enemy Lists are
    finished. The Walkthrough is missing the final two stars. And the Mini-Games
    and Side-Quest section is 50% done.
    
    Version 0.8 17/12/00
    Finished more of the Walkthrough, only Smithy and small bits here and there are
    missing from it.
    
    Version O.9 19/12/00
    Well the Walkthough is finished and the Mini-Games & Side-Quests is close to
    being fully finished.
    
    Version 1.0 21/12/00
    Everything is finished!
    
    Version 1.1 16/01/01
    Added a Intro. Fixed some mistakes and added some info thanks to Massoud1957
    and Tim Nyborg.
    
    Version 1.2 19/01/01
    Changed e-mail address and removed all trailing spaces.
    
    Version 1.3 15/04/01
    Fixed mistake thanks to Yenny Halim regarding Croco.
    
    Version 1.4 18/06/01
    Fixed some stuff thanks to LastRide45780.
    
    Version 1.5 12/01/03
    Fixed some mistakes that had been really bugging me, and replaced all the
    ampersands that I used far too much as a substitute for "and". I'm really sorry
    for the poor grammar and huge paragraphs in this guide, but I'm just too lazy
    to fix it. Sorry :)
    
    Version 1.6 08/03/03
    Corrected a bunch of typos thanks to Julijana Okuka.
    
    Version 1.7 11/03/03
    I finally got enough motivation to go over the Walkthrough and make it as
    coherent as I possibly can. It was a slightly half-assed proof-read, but it's
    better than nothing! Right?
