    o---------------------o
    This combines Super Mario Bros, Super Mario Bros 2, Super Mario Bros 3, and a
    formerly Japan only exclusive called Super Mario Bros Lost Levels aka Japan's
    version of Super Mario Bros 2. The American version was released in Japan as
    Super Mario Bros USA but it is really a hack of Doki Doki Panic.

                               *---------------------*
                                      World 1
                               *---------------------*
    
    1-1: Run right and kill a Goomba, and get the Mushroom and kill three more
    Goombas and enter the next pipe after the pair for a shortcut. Skipping the
    pipe, you can get a 1-up. The shortcut leads to the end of the level. Keep
    moving and you can get a flower and a star too.
    
    1-2: Read the info in the warp zone info if you decide to warp. Otherwise just
    stay above the level till you reach the up elevator and exit out the pipe
    and on to the pole.
    
    1-3: As you go right, the jumps here are tricky. On the way tp a platform
    rising and falling, you would have encountered a red Koopa Troopa and a Goomba
    already. Take the low path and get the power up then you have an option of
    getting the four coins above before moving on. Get past a Koopa Paratroopa and
    a Goomba and ride two side moving platforms to the right. Take out a Koopa
    Paratroopa and another Goomba then ride the side-to-side platform and the end
    of the level.
    
    1-4: Run to the right and watch out for the firebar below the power-up question
    block. Keep moving right to avoid the firebars and watch out for firebrath.
    Eventually, you will reach one of eight Bowsers in the game but only the last
    one is real. Use fireball to defeat Bowser and reveal who the faker is. In
    level one, the faker is a Goomba. If you lack fireball, make your way to the
    axe and drop Bowser into the lava pit.
    
                               *---------------------*
                                      World 2
                               *---------------------*
    
    2-1: Go right and take care of a Goomba coming down the stairs then get a
    power up from the middle block if needed. Dispose of the two Koopa Troopas and
    there is an invisible coin block just to the left of te bricks above. Stand on
    the block where the coin was and jump to reveal a 1-up. Proceed to the right
    and there are two rowa of five question blocks. One has a power-up. Knock out
    the Goombas and the Koopa Troopas in the way. There is a star in one of the
    blocks to the right jua before the pirhana plant pipe. Run over everything
    in your path and a secret pipe will be the next pipe you see. Once out, there
    are three pipes with pirhana plants. Time your jumps to get past them. There
    are more Goombas, Koopa Troopas, and Koopa Paratroopas on route to a spring
    that vaults you above the wall and to the pole on the right.
    
    2-2: You are now underwater. How in sam hell can Mario breath? Keep swimming
    right and avoid the Bloopers and Cheep Cheeps. It is best to stay low unless
    you have to swim over pink algae or swim over a wall. You'll eventually reach
    a side pipe. It will take you to the mainland. Now proceed to the pole and exit
    
    2-3: This is just a straight path to the right. Be sure to move slowly to avoid
    the Cheep Cheeps and there are times where you
    
    2-4: The Pobodos make their debut here. They are fireballs that leap from the
    lava and pick off jumpers. They are invincible too. Wait for Pobodo to fall
    before you move on. Avoid the firebars as usual. You'll encounter moving 
    elevators which are of no importance. Avoid Bowser's fire and pump fireballs
    into him to reveal him as a Koopa Troopa. The bricks above hinder your jump
    attempt.
    
                               *---------------------*
                                      World 3
                               *---------------------*
    
    3-1: The last pipe in the beginning sequence is a shortcut. Keep moving right
    till you see a set of bricks above.  The leftmost star has a star. Blow past
    everyone even the new Hammer Bros. Use the spring to get on top of the blocks,
    the middle section is has a beanstalk that is another shortcut. Once down, here
    is a 1-up trick. As the Koopa Troopa comes down the stairs, jump on it as it is
    about to fall and leave the controller alone as you continually hop on the
    shell and rack up lots of life. Go above 127 and the lives counter rests.
    
    3-2: Assuming you still have fireballs, run right and shoot everything that
    moves. Soon, there is a spot with a lone Koopa Troopa trapped in it. Kill it 
    then get the coins in the brick and a star above, Now just run over everyone
    while you still can and commence shooting everyone on the way to the pipe.
    
    3-3: Carefully move through the side to side platforms and make it to a scale
    that makes the other side rise when you stand on one side. Stay on it too long
    and you will fall to your doom. It will take you to more side-to-side platforms
    and some red Koopa Troopas and red Koopa Paratroopas. Another side-to-side
    platform leads to another scale and the exit.
    
    3-4: Move right and avoid the Pobodos and firebars. The middle question block
    has a powerup. The next three sets of firebars are tricky as there are on top
    and one on bottom. At the end is a group of Pobodos and jump over Bowser's
    breath. The fake Bowser is a Buzzy Beetle who will make its debut later on.
    
                               *---------------------*
                                      World 4
                               *---------------------*
    
    4-1: The new enemies here are the Latiku and the Spiny eggs it drops and turn
    into Spinies. You can't jump on these. Take out Lakitu as fast as you can and
    bolt for the exit. There are four spots to take him out and they all involve 
    where you are high up including a hidden 1-up over four question blocks.
    
    4-2: Take two careful hops across and kill two Goombas. Near the end of the
    corridor, there is a hidden coin box in the bricks. Read the warp zone section
    below for warp zone info.Otherwise, stay at the top of the level till the 
    second down elevator and exit stage right.
    
    4-3: Maneuver through red Koopa Troopas and red Koopa Paratroopas on way to a
    scale. use it to get across faster. Then you have three more scales to trek 
    through then a rising and falling platform before the pole.
    
    4-4: Now this level is real tricky. Take the right path to proceed, the wrong
    path lets you repeat that section. here is the solution: Take the high road,
    then at the steps, there are three more paths, the lowest path is the one to
    take and off to fight Bowser again. The firebar and Pobodo interfere this time.
    The faker is a Spiny.
    
                               *---------------------*
                                      World 5
                               *---------------------*
    
    5-1: Run across and shoot everything that moves and clear the pipes. You'll
    get a star eventually. Now run over everyone. You'll pass a new enemy. Bullet
    Bill. The first one is no threat, The second you need to duck. Like the
    Pirhana Plant with pipes, stand next or on the cannon to be safe, Use the
    cannon for leverage to the shortcut pipe above and the end of the level.
    
    5-2: Take careful steps to the bullet bill cannon and head for the spring. It
    is not really needed. There is a Hammer Brother here on the steps. Use fire
    to get past it or say a prayer and blow past it. keep moving across the top and
    you will come across the Hammer Bros. fave area of a level which is a three
    level section to hop up and down. Smash the blocks below to kill them. Blow
    past the Goombas, Koopa Paratroopas, and Buzzy Beetles to the pole.
    
    5-3: The Bullet Bills come out randomly in this level so watch out for them. 
    Take out any Goombas, Koopa Troopas, and Koopa Paratroopas in the way and touch
    the pole.
    
    5-4: Woah shit! That is one large firebar. Better move fast while avoiding
    the Pobodos to get through this part. There are thankfully smaller firebars to
    get through next. There is one elevator, use it wisely. Make it past a few more
    Pobodos and firebars and Bowser breaths to face Bowser. Is fire all he does?
    There is a Pobodo and a small moving platform above. The faker is a Lakitu.
    
                               *---------------------*
                                      World 6
                               *---------------------*
    
    6-1: Go right and avoid or shoot the spinies and quickly take out Lakitu ASAP.
    There are two areas to do so, The level is a short and sweet one so no need for
    detail.
    
    6-2: Nothing special here but some popes to maneuver through till you find a 
    set of bricks with a beanstalk coming out of it. Jump off to the right and
    reveal a hidden coin for leverage to the beanstalk. Just more Pipes to move
    through till you reach a Koopa Paratroopa at the end. Take it out and proceed
    to the pole.
    
    6-3: Scenery? Where's the scenery? Oh there it is now. Aside from Mario and
    the moving platforms, how about some color stupid? Just move through the
    platforms and scales. Bullet bills appear in random spots. Avoid them on route
    to a spring. Carefully land on the moving platform, then take the scale to
    four falling platforms to the pole.
    
    6-4: Nothing you haven't handled before. Just some trickier jumps between
    firebars. Avoid the breath and this fake Bowser throws hammers. Gee, who is 
    this faker? Roast him up to reveal him to be A BLOOPER?!!! WHAT THE HELL?!!!
    I was expecting a Hammer Brother.
    
                               *---------------------*
                                      World 7
                               *---------------------*
    
    7-1: There are a lot of bullet bills to avoid most of this level. The only 
    other dangers are the Hammer Bros. The Koopa Troopas are nothing for you to 
    worry about. There is a shortcut pipe after them. There is another set of
    Hammer Bros and a Buzzy Beetle on the steps before the pole. Hey! Here's 
    another 1-up loop. Do the same thing you did to the Koopa Troopa in 3-1.
    
    7-2: Another underwater level. like last time, just swim to safety and avoid
    or shoot the Bloopers and Cheep Cheeps on route to the pipe then onto the pole.
    
    7-3: Just move slowly to the right and dodge the Cheep Cheeps, Koopa Troopas,
    and Koopa Paratroopas on route to the pole.
    
    7-4: Another "choose the right path" castle. The solution is low, middle, high,
    high, middle, high. The fake Bowser is a Hammer Bros. this time and throws
    Hammers. That Blooper in the last level was a throw off.
    
                               *---------------------*
                                      World 8
                               *---------------------*
    
    8-1: Congratulations! You made it to the last world. Stomp the Buzzy Beetle and
    kick it into Goombas and avoid the rebound. Move right as fast as possible
    since the time runs out fast. Thre is a shortcut pipe before the two coins in
    the air. Once out, take out two Koopa Paratroopas on the way to a star, and 
    make a break for it. Be careful not to jump too fast or you'll fall at the
    pipes. You should be invincible up to the second Buzzy Beetle. Take two careful
    hops and shoot all that move and jump across the narrow walls and hit the pole.
    
    8-2: A Lakitu, Spiny and two Koopa Paratroopas annoy you at the start. Blow
    past them and the Lakitu leaves early. The spring lets you hit a 1-up and break
    a block next to it to avoid chasing it. At the end are Bullet Bills. Take
    careful jumps as you stand on narrow ground, run over a gap and take a leap of
    faith. Hanf on there and you'll reach the pole.
    
    8-3: Avoid the Bullet bills and shoot everything that moves. Hop across the
    small walls to the pole.
    
    8-4: I'll be brief, move forward to the 3rd pipe, then take the 5th pipe which
    is in the air so you hit a hidden coin to get there. Avoid the cheep cheep on
    the way to the 4th pipe which is after the pit. Swim to the end then when you
    come out get past the Hammer Brother and the Pobodo and you now face the real
    Bowser. Avoid his fire and hammers and wait for him to jump then run under him
    and get the axe. You can also shoot him too. If you are Super Mario or Fire
    Mario, just take the hit and grab the axe.
    
    +++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
    Warp Zones
    +++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
    World 1-2: Basically stay on top of the level as much as possible till you
    reach the very end. You can warb to World 2,3, or 4.
    
    World 4-2: Just do the same as above and you'll get to warp to level 5.
    
    World 4-2: There is an area early in 4-2 where there are four blocks above.
    Hit the two right bricks and stand on the one to the left and scoot to the left
    and hit the brick second from the left and a beanstalk rises. Get on the
    beanstalk and go through a little part of a new level and you can warp to World
    6,7, or 8.
    
    =============================SUPER MARIO BROS 2================================
    
    o---------------------o
          INTRODUCTION
    o---------------------o
    
    When Mario opened a door after climbing a long stair in his dream, another 
    World spread before him, and he heard a voice call for help to be freed from
    a spell. After awakening, Mario went to a cave nearby, and to his surprise, he
    saw exactly what he saw in his dream.
    
    
    o---------------------o
         OPTIONS/HEROES
    o---------------------o
    This a one player game and before each level, you get to choose one of the
    four characters.
    
    Mario is an all around character in running, jumping, and carrying an item when
    jumping.
    
    Luigi is an excellent jumper who can leap very high and very far places this is
    in part to his bicycle kicks as he jumps that propels him but his jumping
    ability suffers when holding an item.
    
    Toad is a short guy that doesn't seem like a good character to play as but he
    is the strongest of the four storywise and it shows whenever he picks up an
    item. He lifts it up before you can blink. His jump ability doesn't go down
    when holding an item.
    
    Princess Toadstool takes a break from the damsel in distress to fight alongside
    Mario, Luigi, and Toad. With her dress, she can float for a few seconds when
    you are holding the jump button. This helps you get out of situations that can
    spell the end for the other three heroes.
    
    o---------------------o

           GAMEPLAY
    o---------------------o
    There are twenty levels to complete total. If you manage to find the warp zones
    then you can skip ahead two levels. There are four warp zones total but they
    are found by going down certain jars in Subcon.
    
    o---------------------o
        CHANGES FROM DDP
    o---------------------o
    
    The Mushroom in Sub-Con used to be a Heart Container.
    
    The tune played in Sub-Con (SMB1 Overworld) was originally an Egyptian tune.
    
    Potions were actually Magic Lamps.
    
    Shells were actually heads.
    
    Mushroom Blocks were masks.
    
    No need to beat the game with all characters to see the actual ending.

    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Fall straight to the bottom. The Pink Shyguys are no threat. Enter thendoor. 
    Kill the Shyguys and Tweeters and climb up the vine. DUmp the Pink Shyguy
    somewhere and pick up the potion on the very right and throw it down. There is
    a mushroom inside. Grab it for three hit points maximum. and get three coins as
    well. Get the POW block and use it in a good spot you feel is good. With Luigi
    or thr Pricess, you can hop over the waterfall with ease but for Mario and Toad
    you need to use the logs to get a cross. There is a 1-up mushroom next to the
    second POW block. Go inside the cave and get past the Ninji. Climb up the vine.
    
    From here you have two paths. Go right which is the normal path or hop the pit
    on the left and take the shortcut to Birdo. Let's examine the left path first.
    After you hop the pit, super jump up and toss the Pink Shyguy somewhere. Hold
    the bomb for a few seconds and throw it down so it'll explode and destroy some
    blocks and enter the door. Run across the top of the screen to the left and go
    against Birdo.
    
    If you decided to go the normal route, which Luigi can take a shortcut before 
    even setting foot in the cave by superjumping to the top area which you'll end 
    up after coming out of the cave. But first, let's do the cave bit for the other
    guys. Hell, just exit the door to the right once at the top. Once outside, pick
    up a potion and drop. The Mushroom is outside. Run to the vine on the right and
    kill the Hoopster and climb. Jump the mountain and some of the Ninjis can give
    a boost up the mountain. When you reach the cloud area. Climb up the vines and
    get through the hoopsters. At the top, move right and fight Birdo.
    
    ---------
    Boss Fight: Birdo (pink)
    
    This fight is simple. Jump on an egg that Birdo spits out then pick it up. Run
    up to Birdo and toss the egg. Do this three times to defeat Birdo.
    ---------
    
    Pick up the crystal ball, enter the mouth and on to the bonus round.
    
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    1-2
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------- 
    We chose Toad for this level because of how fast he picks stuff up and there
    is one section where there is a shitload of coins to pickup in sub-con but more
    on this later. Wait for the Pidget to swoop down and steal it's carpet. Watch
    out for the Red Beezos coming down at you. When you reach the jars, pick up the
    potion to the left of the first jar and throw it between the two jars where the
    mushroom will be in sub-con.
    
    Remember the strategy we mentioned about the Beezos if you want to take the
    shortcut this is the place to utilize them as your "friend". Get at a high 
    enough point to jump up the cliff and jump onto the Beezo and run right. When
    in range, hop up the cliff and that eliminates the hassle of Phanto. 
    
    If you decide to skip the shortcut and take the normal path then.... The left
    jar has a 1-up at the bottom. In the right jar is the key. Drop the key and
    wait for Phanto to leave then pick up the key and leave. Drop the key again to
    make Phanto leave again. Kill a Ninji with the key for good measure. Now pick
    up the key and enter the door. Hopefully you get enough cherries for a Star.
    Use the bombs to blow up the blocks and get the last cherries to get the star
    and get through the Gray Sniffit. Climb the ladder and destroy to blocks with
    the bombs and pick up a potion and drop it near where the blocks were blown
    away for the mushroom. Now just exit out the door pass the Ninjis. Once outside
    get them coins that we spoke of earlier and then enter the door
    
    ---------
    Boss Fight: Birdo (pink)
    
    This is just like the first fight. Nothing changes here except for the layout
    of the area.
    ---------
    
    Pick up the crystal ball, enter the mouth and on to the bonus round.
    
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    1-3
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    We could have use Luigi or Princess for this level but we chose Princess for
    the warp circumstance since she can zip through the level with help of her
    hovering ability. If you decide to play the whole level then play as Luigi. OK
    enough of the small talk.
    
    Gather four cherries as you get past the Pink Snifits. Pluck the grass on the
    right (next to the log) for the potion and immediately throw it down for a
    nearby Mushroom. Hop across the two pits with Luigi or Princess or use the logs
    if you have Mario or Toad and toss the Pink Shyguy somewhere. Pluck the potion
    on the ground (1st one). Backtrack across the pit to the left while using the
    logs if needed and toss down the potion. Super Jump to the Mushroom above. If
    you want to warp instead take the potion to the very right and drop it near the
    jar then when in Subcon area. Go down the jar to warp to level 4. Otherwise,
    enter the door. 
    
    Once inside, make your upwards trek to the door and avoid the Sparks. It does
    not matter how you get there, just do it. Enter and pick up the key and drop it
    to get rid of Phanto and try to kill the Spark with the key if you can. Take
    the key out the door and drop it again to get rid of Phanto. Make your way down
    use the key both as a way to keep Phanto from appearing and as a weapon too.
    That is an effective way to kill the Gray Sniffit. Careful not to touch the
    spikes at the bottom. Enter the locked door.
    
    Try to get the cherries by going in and getting one (jump to one and pull back)
    the exit reenter and repeat till a star appears. Use it to get past everyone as
    fast as you can and make it to the crystal ball and enter the Hawk's mouth.
    
    ---------
    Boss Fight: Mouser
    
    Careful not to touch the Spark as you enter. First thing you do is blow away
    the wall. If you want to save bombs, have the Mouser blow up the wall for you.
    Pick up a bomb and hurl it to where you think Mouser is going to stand and let
    it explode on him. Now for the other two hits, catch one of his bombs and run
    to the right and toss it on the corner when Mouser is on the opposite corner
    and he'll get blown up each time and die after three blasts.
    ---------
    
    Nothing left to do but enter the door.

    Toad's digging ability is a major help in this whole world itself. Princess can
    also get through this level by making over jumps on the outside to avoid some
    of the Cobrat's bullets. Get to the first pile of sandy-looking blocks and the
    potion is on the very left on top. Throw it down immediately for the first 
    Mushroom. Watch out for the Red Panser and make a break for the Pyramid and
    enter. Dig your way to the bottom but watch out for the Shyguys as they follow
    you down as you dig. Try to get past the gray Sniffit quickly and climb down
    the ladder.
    
    ---------
    Boss Fight: Birdo (pink)
    
    Stay close to Birdo since the is not much ground in this fight. Defeat him as
    always.

    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    2-2
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    We played this level with Princess Toadstool. Watch out for the Red Beezos as
    they come in for surprise attacks. This would be a good time to hitch a ride on
    one. If you want the mushroom. The moment you pick up a Potion, move a little
    to the right and drop it and get the mushroom. Get past the quicksand and go
    inside an opening. Blow up the wall when you enter and get the potion and drop
    it immediately for the Mushroom. Get past the Cobrats and the Pokey and climb
    down the vine.
    
    Dig your way down and get the cherries and the star to rid yourself of those
    pesky red Shyguys and dig to the left till the Gray Sniffit passed by and then
    go back up and dig to the right down to the door.
    
    ---------
    Boss Fight: Birdo (red)
    
    This battle is more different than the pink Birdos you have been facing. To
    defeat Red Birdo, carry a mushroom block to the top at toss it at Birdo. This
    Birdo can spit fireballs too. It's better to run back and retrieve the other
    Mushroom blocks than to pick up the eggs. For the record, Red Birdo spits in
    threes. Whatever he spits is random.

    Off to the bonus round.

    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    We decided to give Mario a chance. Climb the ladder and pick up the potion to
    the right and carry it to the very left of the level and drop it for a Mushroom
    and then go forward. The beezos can help you reach the upper area. Ride on then
    jump at the opening. Get the potion and drop it for a mushroom. Get past the
    Beezos and Cobrats and enter the opening at the end.
    
    Fall down the right side to the bottom and pick up a POW block. Dig down until
    you reach the door and enter. Pick up the key and kill the Spark with it. Exit
    and drop immediately. Guide the key to the top and enter the locked door. Make
    your way to the right through all enemies and gather the crystall ball and then
    enter the Hawkmouth.
    
    ---------
    Boss Fight: Triclyde
    
    The mushroom blocks can be used as a shield or a weapon. When it is safe to get
    one. Toss a mushroom block at Tricylde. Hmmm. What's a Tweeter doing in here.
    Maybe he can be of some use. Actually there is. This trick worked in Doki Doki
    Panic so it should work it. If you toss the Tweeter at Triclyde in a correct
    way then you can kill Triclyde in record time.

    Enter the door and bonus round.

    We'll let Mario have this one. Enter the opening at the very right. From here
    you can fall down or climb up.
    
    Fall down: You'll fall a few screens. Land in the middle and careful not to
    slip down as you enter the opening. Pull up the 10th weed to the left for a
    Potion. Get as many coins as you can. If you don't care for the coins, you can
    run to the jar with the potion and drop it and then use the jar to warp to
    world 5. If you decide not to warp, enter the door. Skip to climb up.
    
    Climb up: Avoid or kill the Pink Shyguys as you hop your way up the clouds. At
    the top, jump on a Pidgit and steal his carpet. Watch out for the red Beezos as
    you guide the carpet up to the vine and climb it.Get past the Gray Panser's
    fireball and jump onto that island with two weeds and get the potion and drop
    it where you are standing. Hop to the Mushroom. Take the mushroom block and 
    kill the Red Panser with it. Kill teh Pink Panser with the Pink Shyguy and
    climb down the ladder for a potion, carry it to the left and drop it. In Subcon
    climb the ladder and head for the Mushroom. Sacrifice a life point and enter
    the opening.

    Boss Fight: Birdo (red)
    
    Keep an eye on its third projectile and act accordingly. As a reminder, eggs
    you jump on and fireballs you don't. There are two Mushroom Blocks but ignore
    them.

    3-2
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    If you play as Princess Toadstool then you have a very good shortcut on your
    hands. Dispose of the Ostros and the Shyguys they carry and avoid the red
    Beezos. Use a turnip on the Gray Panser and dispose of more Ostros n Shyguys
    and pick up a POW Block. Get a running start and hover over the pit. Run past
    the falling fireballs and climb down the ladder. Make it to another ladder
    but don't climb up. Float off further to the left and pick up a bomb and time 
    it to blow up the wall. There are Porcupos below at the end. Blow up the right
    side of the floor and use the potion near it. A mushroom can be reach from that
    spot. Now climb that ladder and enter the door.
    
    ---------
    Boss Fight: Birdo (red)
    
    Fight him like you fight the Red Birdos. Ignore the Mushroom Blocks behind him
    they are of no use until after you beat Birdo.

    Pick Luigi for this Level. The Albatrosses drop Bob-Ombs. Get the potion and
    head left and drop it for a mushroom. Get to the door safely. Throw a turtle
    shell at the Ninjis. Carry the Potion to the ladder. Drop it and when in Subcon
    climb up and get the Mushroom. Once out of Subcon, get the POW Block on the
    left. Use it on either the Ninji or the Sparks and enter the door. Work your
    way up to door at the top. It's best to keep running right and jumping as you
    will ome out of the other side. Enter the door and carefully get the key. You
    know the other part. Just work your way down and make it to the locked door
    you saw earlier. Make your way through the sparks and use the chains to
    avoid the Red Panser's fireballs. Get past the Gray Sniffit and enter the door.
    To carefully get past the Sparks here, wait for the bottom Spark to pass by and
    Super Jump onto the top of the middle wall when safe. Try to get the five
    cherries if you can and get the star and get to the ladder and climb up. Use
    the turtle shell to kill the Ninjis. Get the Crystal Ball.

    We chose Toad here. You can run and jump your way through the first part of the
    level like it's nothing as you go past Trouters and Flurees. The state is real
    slippery so be careful at the end of the icy area. Get the potion and drop it
    and get the mushroom to the right in Subcon. Once out, go below and use the
    rocket to get to the next area.
    
    There is no boss on this level despite the music. All you do is make it to the
    crystal ball and the end of the level.

    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Princess Toadstool takes the spotlight. Climb the vine and get ready for a
    tough sequence as the Beezos come in from all planes, you are better ducking
    n sliding to skid under some and only squat jump over the low ones. You'll
    encounter the Flurees along the way but make it to the door and you made it.
    
    Go to the whale on the left and get the potion and drop it. The Mushroom is on
    the tail. For the level it's safe to stand on the water coming from the whale's
    spout not safe to touch the side. When you see three platforms with weeds. The
    potion is on the top one. If you want to warp to level six then carry it to the
    potion. Otherwise pick up the rocket at the end. Pick up the Shyguy and toss it
    away then get the potion and grab the potion and ride the Autobomb over the 
    spikes while crouching. Hover over the Porcupos and drop the potion and get the
    Mushroom. Enter the opening.
    
    ---------
    Boss Fight: Birdo (red)
    
    The ground is slippery and that's all that's new.
    ---------
    
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    4-3
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Climb the ladder and exit. Take the potion and go left and drop it. Super Jump
    to the Mushroom. Now as for Birdo. Don't kill him. Use his egg to get across
    the water. If you wanted some coins you can enter the cave and exit then carry
    the potion to the island as you are riding the egg. Enter the door and work
    your way up the ice and avoid the Flurries and don't land on the spikes and
    enter the door at the top.
    
    Pick up the potion and guide yourself across the top of the castles and drop it
    onto one of the platforms high up for a mushroom. Drop down and enter the 
    castle. Let the red Shyguy give you a piggyback ride along the spikes till you
    reach a door. Doo the little key bit, till you reach the locked door below. Go
    to the door and duck under the Beezo. 
    
    ---------
    Boss Fight: Fryguy
    
    The Fryguy moves in a wierd pattern, it will dip up and down as it flies back
    and forth and spit fireballs. Stay between the fireballs and use the Mushroom
    blocks to kill him. WHen he dies, it's not over yet. You must eliminate the
    tiny fireballs left behind with the mushroom blocks

    World 5 - Cave
    +++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    5-1
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Jump past the Ostro n Shyguy and then jump over the Red Panser between its
    fireballs and then at the bottom, get past the fireballs anf go left to the
    door. Use the logs to get across then you'll have to rely on the Trouters as
    stepping stones in this level. If you managed to get over the ceiling at the
    end of the passage, pick up the right Mushroom Block and then at the bottom
    get the potion. The Mushroom will fall to the floor for you to collect. Now
    just enter the opening.
    
    ---------
    Boss Fight: Birdo (green)
    
    He may appear to be gray but he's really green. The room makes his color look
    different. Anyway, he'll strictly spit fireballs so utalize that Mushroom Block
    in the room and hit him three times.
    ---------
    
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    5-2
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Climb the ladder at the start. There are Hoopster galore in this level. Some of
    them are needed for leverage. When you reach the first jar, go inside and use
    the bomb to go to the bottom and carefully get the potion and exit the jar.
    Throw down the jar and get the mushroom. With the Princess, you can utilize
    your floating ability from here and reach the vine. Climb up and get through
    the Gray Sniffits' bullets and climb all the way to top via the left vine and
    enter the opening. Inside, pick up the POW block and as you fall, try not to
    fall onto the spikes. The princess has it lucky if you miss the small platforms
    because you can make her float a little bit and have a Trouter give her a boost
    and then just enter the opening.
    
    ---------
    Boss Fight: Birdo (red)
    
    There is a Trouter during this fight. You can use it to help you in this battle
    as a weapon.
    ---------
    
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    5-3
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Pick Luigi. Climb the ladder and Super Jump up the top of the ledge and pick up
    the potion and throw it down. In Subcon go down the jar and warp to Level 7.
    
    Wanna skip the warp? In that case move forward instead and avoid the Bob-ombs
    being dropped by the Albatrosses. If you are lucky enough you can have the
    Bob-Ombs blow away blocks because once you get the potion and enter Subcon then
    the Mushroom is free. Go down the ladder, Avoid the Bob-ombs and the Red Panser
    and enter the opening. Avoid the Sparks and climb down then climb back up the
    other side. As a shortcut, hold down as you ride a Red Shyguy to go through the
    open spot then climb up and get through the Pink Pansers and enter the opening.
    Get past the Pink Sniffit anmd steal the Pidgit's carpet and fly right till the
    carpet vanishes. Steal another carpet as you go right. Kill the Red Birdo.
    
    ---------
    Boss Fight: Clawgrip
    
    THis fight may be tough for Luigi because of his high jump. We suggest that you
    stand on the first step up and when Clawgrip throws a rock that looks like it
    will roll over the gap, walk on it if it does and pick up and try to get a hit
    in on Clawgrip. Repeat this pattern to defeat him. He dies in five hits. There
    is a double hit trick you can use on Clawgrip too. If you hit the rock that
    Clawgrip gets ready to throw and it will "kill" the rock but the two rocks will
    bounce back and hit Clawgrip at least twice.

    6-1
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Go down the first jar and get the potion. Throw it down when on the tumbleweed
    and get the Mushroom before it completely sinks. Jump your way past the Cobrats
    Pokies, and Shyguys and when you get the potion, get past the Pink Pansers
    frieballs and get to the opening and throw it down. The Mushroom is on top of
    the sand blocks. Once you get it, feel free to enter the opening.
    
    Grab the Cobrat you see and toss it at the jar with the Mushroom Block on it
    and kill the Cobrat that was under it. Enter the jar and dig to the bottom, a
    1-up awaits you below. Go to the last set of jars then go three jars down and
    duck into it. Carry the key and do the key bit and enter the door to the right
    once you exit the jar.
    
    ---------
    Boss Fight: Birdo (green)
    
    This time the Birdo is green like it should be, you already know that it spits
    only fireballs. Use the Mushroom Blocks to beat him
    ---------
    
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    6-2
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Enter the opening and this level is a little simple since it's a ride along the
    Albatrosses and watch for the Beezos. They appear green here. The Panser will
    not bother you. On the first piece of land, get off the Albatross and get the
    potion and Mushroom. Ride the Albatross back to the beginning and hold up the
    pumpkin you should have picked up before boarding to kill the Panser on the way
    back. Then do the whole thing over again. Hop over the three Albatrosses when
    you get to them. Enter the opening at the end.

    ANOTHER MAJOR SHORTCUT!
    
    Super Jump on top of the Albatross and ride it back to the rocket. Get the
    cherries for a star and make it to the ladder and climb up. Watch out for the
    Sparks in this level as you move up the clouds. Watch out for the Hoopster and
    the Snifit bullets and enter the door.

    One Mushroom Block is all you got at your disposal
    ---------
    
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    7-2
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    We chose the Princess to finish things off. Jump up to the ledge on the upper
    left at the start then from there, you can make floationg jumps on route to the
    castle.
    
    Once you get past the Shyguys and Ninji, you got two paths: up or down.
    
    We chose down.
    
    Down: Time a floating jump low enough to clear the spikes and reach the chain.
    Kill the Sparks or avoid them as you pick up Mushroom Blocks on the way down to
    the door. Avoid the Sparks and enter the door with a potion and Mushroom inside
    of it. Exit and reach the door. Climb up the chains. The Sparks can touch you
    if you are in the middle of the chains and enter the door at the top. Get past
    two more Sparks and climb the chain to the left. Now you go up through the
    treadmill with enemies in the way. Make it past them and climb the chain. You
    can defeat the Red Birdo if you want but if you time a floating crouch jump,
    you can sail over his head and climb the chain. Get past the sparks and the
    next door is locked. The door past it has a Birdo who guards the key. Kill it
    and rid of Phanto and get the key to the locked door. Defeat the Hawkmouth as
    we explained earlier in the boss description.
    
    ---------
    Final Boss Fight: Wart
    
    Avoid the bubbles he spits and grab a vegetable and when he opens his mouth to
    spit more bubbles toss it at him. He dies in six hits. For most of the fight,
    you are safe at the wall just below him and if a veggie pops up or a bubble is
    going tio hit you, then move. You won

    world 6 but hell with it.
    
    ===============================================================================
    Epilogue
    ===============================================================================
    The winning character pulls up the cork and frees the Subcons. They say thank
    you to the character but if all characters completed equal levels, they say
    nothing. You then get a scene of Wart being carried away and all the levels
    that each character completed. The contributor is the one who completed the
    most levels indicated by the number of above. If more than one contributor is
    named, it'll switch through the names. We see Mario asleep, he opens an eye and
    goes back to sleep while the cast goes by. The end.

          INTRODUCTION
    o---------------------o
    
    This is the third installment of the Super Mario Bros series and the fourth and
    final one in the Super Mario Advance series. As with the other games in the
    Super Mario Advance series, you have an option of playing the original Mario
    Bros game that lasts forever but you can play minigames with up to 4-players.
    
    o---------------------o
             STORY
    o---------------------o
    
    The evil King Bowser (aka Koopa) and his Koopalings have terrorized the lands
    surrounding the Mushroom Kingdom and the kids have stolen the wands of each of
    the kings who rule that land and turned them into strange creatures. It's up to
    you as Mario and Luigi to restore peace to the kingdoms.

    Is there a stage you just can't beat and you just want to skip it altogether?
    This is the item you need. Just don't die on the level after that or you'll be
    taken back to the last level you completed and the Jugem Cloud will be just a
    waste.

    map.

    normally cause harm. It however, does not stop you from dying of time out,

    along the side of the screen during scrolling stages.

    +1-1+
    
    Upon start up, you got Goombas to eliminate if you choose to do so. The fourth
    question block in the level contains a Super Mushroom to transform you to Super
    Mario/Luigi. Avoid the Venus Fire Trap's Fireballs and get on the orange block
    and jump on the Red Koopa Troopa below. Kick the shell into the question block
    on the right to reveal a Super Leaf. Grab it to become Racoon Mario/Luigi. If
    you want, you can play around with the "white block" background trick just for
    practice since you'll need it in 1-3 if you are looking to warp instead of just
    playing the game straight through. Use your Racoon Tail to spin and knock out
    the two Goombas and Paragoomba (or you can stomp them outright). Once you are
    clear. Run back then run to the right till your P-meter flashes and fly up to
    the clouds. The lone brick contains a 1-up. Now just collect the coins up top
    and get a back n' forth running start to build up your P-meter and fly to get
    the coins past the end of the cloud trail. Once you drop to the bottom, one of
    the bricks has a P-switch inside. Swat it with your tail instead of using the
    Red Koopa Troopa Shell for maximum coins and then clear a path and run and fly
    to the top of a high pipe and go down. Inside is a bunch of coins set up in the
    formation of the number 3. Get them and leave the bonus area. Proceed to the
    right to exit the level.
    
    ---
    
    +1-2+
    
    The sideway pipes endlessly spawns Goombs. Get past them and there to get onto
    the pipe at the top, use the question blocks for leverage. One of them has a
    Super Leaf to make up for the one you may have lost earlier. On the other side,
    the pipe will spew out more Goombas. Take this time earn lots of 1-ups by going
    near the pipe but not underneath and stomping on the Goombas while wearing your
    Racoon Suit and keep hitting the Jump Button to slow down your fall and land on
    another Goomba. Repeat this process until you have collected all the 1-ups you
    want. Once you got all the lives you need, go to the right and ignore the coins
    you see and hit the brick on the right to reveal a P-Switch. Use it to turn the
    coins to bricks and use those bricks to reach the pipe above. Be sure to avoid
    the Venus Fire Trap by waiting for it to go down into the pipe and then go down
    the pipe yourself. There is a load of coins inside to collect. You can repeat
    this process for unlimited coins. There is also a hidden 1-up to the right of
    the pipe. Your racoon suit should be able to help you find it. If you're ready
    to proceed, go right and you can practice your slope sliding here. Move along
    the musical blocks. One contains a Super Leaf and the last one has a Starman
    which grants you temporary invincibility which is enough to last until the end
    of the level.
    
    ---
    
    +1-3+
    
    At the start of the level you will be dealing with the Boomerang Bros. Beware
    of the boomerangs on the return path. Use the music blocks to get on the
    bricks and kick a red Koopa Troopa shell to the left and break away the blocks
    until it goes away. Go down into the hole and jump up to reveal a orange music
    block. Jump on it and it will boost you to a secret area with plenty of coins.
    If you have your Racoon suit on, then you can fly up to the sky and collect a
    1-up hidden in the bricks. At the end, go down the pipe but don't exit just yet
    because there is a secret item to pick up. Go left till you reach a white block
    and use that "white block" background trick I mentioned in 1-1 and run to the
    right as fast as you can and you'll end up behind the exit and into a secret
    Toad house with a chest containg a Magic Whistle.
    
    ---
    
    +1-4+
    
    This is the game's first auto-scrolling stage. In this level, you must collect
    all 44 coins to make a white Toad house appear on the map (which contains a P-
    Wing powerup). Collect the coins as you go while avoiding enemy contact. Beware
    of moving platforms that drop as soon as you step on them. Some coins and 1-ups
    are hidden inside of bricks. With the stage scrolling, you must be fast at hit-
    ting the bricks to get the goods. At the end of the scrolling is a green Koopa
    Paratroopa that floats up and down. Stomp on it for leverage if needed and then
    get the last three coins before entering the pipe. Proceed to the exit.
    
    ---
    
    +Fortress+
    
    The games first fortress is here. There are two ways to finish this level. You
    can play this stage normally and defeat Boom-Boom in the end or you can use a
    simple trick that most of us probably found out after watching the movie called
    "The Wizard."
    
    At the start of the level, be careful not to fall into the lava or else it is
    instant death for you. As you hop across the lava pits, stay clear of the Roto
    Discs and the Pobodos popping out of the lava. There is also a Fire Flower in
    this area if you want it. Once you get past all the pits, disable a Dry Bones
    and quickly run back and forth to charge up your P-meter if you got your Racoon
    suit on and fly up the left side and pull to the right and keep going right and
    soon you will be in a secret area with a treasure chest that contains a whistle
    and end the level.
    
    If you decided to go on ahead instead, enter the door at the end and you will
    be at a screen that has a spiked ceiling moving up and down. To avoid taking
    damage, move into one of the safe spots (where the ceiling is raised) and wait
    there until the ceiling rises again. Continue until you reach the end of the
    line and enter the door when it appears. To defeat Boom-Boom, simply stomp on
    his head three times or roast him with numerous fireballs. Collect the ? prize
    he leaves behind to end the level and destroy the lock on the map.
    
    ---
    
    +1-5+
    
    Start off by sliding down the slope. This kills the Buzzy Beetles in the way as
    you go down. Avoid the Cheep-Cheeps in the water and the upside-down Pirhana
    Plants and take the high road. Before you jump out of the hole, jump along the
    left side of it to make a orange music block appear. Use it to boost yourself 
    to the secret area in the clouds. Once you are back on the ground, go right and
    do not slide down. Use your fireballs (if you got your Fire Suit on) and kill 
    the Venus Fire Trap and Piranha Plants and go up the pipe at the end and you
    can exit stage right.
    
    ---
    
    +1-6+
    
    Proceed to the right as you start the level. If you are already in Super Mode,
    then the first question block will contain a Super Leaf. Get on the platform
    that is moving along a railed path and jump on the music blocks to the right
    and get onto safe ground. To the right is a green Koopa Troopa. Stop on it and
    kick it away to clear some blocks and get 10 coins out of the brick to your
    right. There ia also a 1-up hidden in the brick above in the same area. Get on
    the high platform ahead and get a running start back and forth to build your
    P-meter and at the end of the platform to your right and fly to collect your
    coins and land on the solid platform. Jump on the two platforms to the right
    and move on to the end of the level.

    +Airship+
    Boss: Larry Koopa
    
    This is a hint of things to come in future airships too. The ship is full of
    Bullet Bills and cannons coming from all directions. There is a Fire Flower in
    a question block that can help against Larry Koopa. There is a rotating cannon
    past it so time your movements to get past it. Get past two more cannons and
    Bullet Bill Shooters and enter the pipe leading to Larry Koopa. Avoid Larry's
    laser rings from his wand and stomp on his head. Avoid the lead he makes while
    in his shell and then stomp him again when he comes out. Stomp on him once more
    to defeat him and change the king back to his normal form.

    +2-1+
    
    At the start, you'll be ambushed by Piledriver Micro-Goombas. Avoid them then
    stomp on them. With your Racoon suit on, get a running start to build up your
    P-meter then take off just before the music blocks and you'll see a pipe that's
    surrounded by bricks. Clear away enough bricks to allow you to enter the pipe
    and go down. This pipe serves as a shortcut (warp) instead of a bonus area. In
    this case, the Firesnakes will be of no threat to you. Make your way to a pipe
    and watch out for the Piranha Plant. Go down after it does.
    
    ---
    
    +2-2+
    
    To make the White Toad appear on the map, you need to get at least thirty coins
    in this stage. It will give you an anchor. This is also the first stage in the
    game to contain quicksand. If you sink too far, you'll die. Stay out of it at
    all costs in this level because there are Venus Fire Traps lurking within them.
    Bump the wood block for a power-up and get the three coins. Don't fall into the
    pit now. Avoid another quicksand and you'll reach some water. Don't ride the
    platform. Instead, get all the coins n' hit the second brick to make a P-switch
    appear. Go back and ride the platform. Hit the P-switch on the way and collect
    all of the coins that used to be bricks. There is enough for a White Toad house
    to appear on the map.
    
    ---
    
    +Fortress 1+
    
    Get past some Dry Bones then when you get near the Thwomp Traps let them fall
    then go past them as they rise back up. Just past the second one is your first
    encounter with the Boo Diddlys. Remember, he will stay still when you face him
    but when you turn your back, he will give chase. Get past him and go up the
    pipe. Stay off the spikes and avoid another Thwomp Trap then jump right over
    the next set of spikes. Ignore the Boo Didley and make a break for the door.
    The Thwomp Traps will fall and miss their target as you run. Enter the door at
    the end. Avoid the spikes as they rise and fall and avoid the Boo Didleys as
    well. When the door appears, enter it immediately. The boss fight with BoomBoom
    is just ahead. Stomp him three times to win. He is slightly faster this fight.
    
    ---
    
    +2-3+
    
    There are three pyramids made out of orange platform blocks. Each one is being
    guarded by Firesnakes. Avoid them and get the prizes at the top. If you are in
    your Racoon suit then you can swat them to get them out of your hair. The 2nd
    pyramid has a Starman in one of the question blocks. With the Racoon Suit on,
    stay at the bottom of the thrid pyramid and make a dash to fill up your P-meter
    and fly up to a set of blocks with one containg a P-switch. Drop down for a 
    shitload of coins. There is also a 1-up within the coins too. If you see bricks
    that didn't change then those are Piledriver Microgoombas who got their cover
    blown. Avoid or kill them and climb up a stack of bricks and kick a Koopa shell
    aside to clear bricks and provide entrance to the pipe below and enter. Exit
    stage right.
    
    ---
    
    +Desert+
    
    Notice that angry sun in the upper-left hand corner. It will stay there for the
    first part of the level. Stay out of the quicksand because there are Venus Fire
    Traps in it. Grab a Koopa Shell shortly after the third quicksand pit, and do a
    high jump to get over the tornado. The Angry Sun will come to life but with the
    Koopa Shell in your hands, you can knock it out early. Just proceed to the end
    of the level.
    
    ---
    
    +2-4+
    
    This is an easy level here. With your Racoon suit on, go right until you reach
    a "wall" then run left to fill the P-meter and fly up the very left side and
    clear away the blocks. From this point you can stay on the high road and when
    you reach the music blocks, just jump and float to the exit.
    
    ---
    
    +2-5+
    
    This level is fairly short. However, the chain chomps are something you should
    worry about. Avoid them at all costs or kill them with Koopa Shells or Racoon
    tail swats. Grab a Koopa shell when you see a set of blocks that zigzag and it
    will clear away some blocks that releases a vine. Climb to the top and hop on
    the clouds to the left and enter a pipe. Get the goods and exit. Once out, get
    the question block treasure and exit to the right.
    
    ---
    
    +Pyramid+
    
    Enter the door and get the Super Leaf at the top of the steps. But, if you were
    small Mario/Luigi at the beginning, you'll find a Super Mushroom. In this case,
    exit after getting the Mushroom then re-enter. Use the Raccoon Suit to break
    the blocks on the higher road. When you reach the pipe, take the upper path to
    the left and at the top, go right. Break the bricks and just past the pipe that
    hangs upsidedown, jump up to reveal a hidden coin. Use it for leverage and go
    up the pipe. This secret area has a P-switch and is full of bonus coins. Get
    the coins and leave. You'll come out near the end. There are Buzzy Beetles that
    are on the ceiling that drop and spin at you when close. Get past them and swat
    away the bricks and go up the pipe at the end. Before you exit, go up the left
    and hit the P-switch and collect the silver coins. Proceed to the exit.

    Boss: Morton Koopa Jr.
    
    Avoid the Bullet Bills and cannons and reach a Fire Flower. You'll come across
    some crates and a trick Bullet Bill pattern. Survive this by using the crates
    to avoid the Bullet Bills and use the fireballs to kill the Rocky Wrenches. Get
    past two more Bullet Bills to face Morton Koopa Jr. He fights like Larry except
    he tends to be more trigger happy with his wand. As with Larry, stomp him then
    avoid his shell then repeat the process two more times for victory.

    +3-1+
    
    At the start of the level, swim to the bottom and to the right for a powerup if
    you need it. Swim back up and as you go right, avoid the Cheep Cheeps while you
    stay clear of the currents coming out of the pipes. There is a secret area near
    where the first upside-down pipe is. Swim up and above it and you will be off
    the screen. Move to the right and get a Power-up the move above the screen and
    come out through the right. You can stay on the high road and maneuver through
    the Bloopers or you can take the low road and deal with the Music Blocks and
    the Fire Lotus. The low road leads to a 1-up. Go up the pipe at the end and the
    exit is ahead.
    
    ---
    
    +3-2+
    
    Beware of the Cheep Cheeps in this area. They like nothing better to do than to
    jump out of the water and crash into you. Stay above the water as much as you
    possibly can. Just past the Donut Lifts is a wall, bump the side of it to make
    the first Starman appear. If you are lucky, then you can grab the other two
    Starmen in this stage for total invincibity throughout the stage. There is a
    1-up near the exit pipe. Get it and swim to the block on the right while you
    avoid the Cheep Cheeps and get into that exit pipe and before you proceed to 
    the end of the stage. Use the Racoon Suit to fly up and to the left to a wood
    platform moving along a path. There is a hidden 1-up within the area. Get it
    then you can leave.
    
    ---
    
    +3-3+
    
    Watch out now. This level rises and sinks. That's not the least of your worries
    because it the Big Boss Bass that you got to watch out for. He has the ability
    to leap out of the water and swallow you whole and thus you instantly lose a
    life. Unless you got a Fire Suit on, don't even think about going for any items
    because it's too risky. Carefully land onto the spinner as it comes to the end
    of its spin to land on the next platform. Use an ice block to make the P-switch
    appear on the left and use the P-switch to provide a platorm of bricks that use
    to be coins and provide you a safe heaven as the music is playing on route to
    the exit pipe. But wait, don't go in just yet. If you still got your Fire Suit,
    kill the Big Boss Bass and swim to the very right for a 1-up and swim back and
    kill the Big Boss Bass again on the way to the pipe then enter. Time to go.

    +Fortress+
    
    This fortress is tricky. There are so many doors in here. The wrong door leads
    to a dip into the flooded basement. There is a shortcut to Boom-Boom. Get past
    the first Thwomp Trap and enter door #3. Rapidly press the up button to warp
    straight to Boom-Boom's room. If you don't feel like warping, here are some
    notable doors to enter: Door #4 leads to a 1-up. Door #6 leads to the right of
    the door leading to Boom-Boom and the last door leads to lots of coins. The
    Boom-Boom here sprouts wings. Defeat him as before.
    
    ---
    
    +3-4+
    
    Are you ready to slip and slide? This level is full of slopes. Use the slide
    to eliminate enemies. At the second slope, get a good slide and then jump at
    the very end to vault over the water pond. It's tricky but with enough practice
    you can make it. Lakitu arrives and he drops green Spiny Eggs. Unlike the red
    Spiny Eggs, they continue to bounce when landing instead of turning into Spinys
    and that is trouble. Knock him off with a Koopa Troopa Shell and just break for
    the end of the stage. Lakitu will return so get as far to the right as you can
    before he comes back.
    
    ---
    
    +3-5+
    
    This is really the first stage where you would use a Frog Suit. Use the D-pad
    to swim around. Just like her mate Big Boss Bass, be wary of Big Bertha. She
    won't try to swallow you but she will spit her child, Baby Cheep, at you if she
    sees you. Your Frog Suit allows you to swim against the currents coming out of
    the pipes. One of those pipes leads to a secret area containing a huge question
    block containing three 1-ups. When you come out, carefully get past the fish
    enemies and exit through the pipe on the right then finish the level.
    
    ---
    
    +3-6+
    
    It is easy to fall to your doom here. Don't stay on the Donut Lifts too long
    and most of all, don't jump on the Rotary Lifts too soon or you'll be spun off
    of it. Stay on higher ground until you reach a spot below with two Donut Lifts
    and 3 ice blocks.  Go down there and pick up the Ice block on the right and
    smash it into the brick to the right to reveal a P-switch. Hit the brick above
    to make a 1-up appear then jump on the P-switch to turn the bricks to coins and
    you can snag the 1-up easier. Get past the next Rotary Lift and proceed to the
    end of the level.
    
    ---
    
    +3-7+
    
    Get the Super Leaf out of the wood block and beware of Spikes (enemies that'll
    toss spike balls at you). As you kill them, look for a pattern of bricks that
    look like this
    
      *  #
      ####
    
     #    #
     ######
    
    Hit the brick which I indicated as the star and a vine will appear. Climb it
    to reach the clouds. Use the clouds to get a running start to the right and fly
    as far right as you can and land on another set of clouds. Jump straight up
    from the middle cloud to make a orange Music Block appear. Jump on it and vault
    to the clouds in the sky. At the end of the scrolling, is a brick containing a
    Jugem Cloud and thus the level ends right there.

    +Fortress 2+
    
    This Fortress level takes place underwater. In addition to the Cheep Cheeps,
    you will have to swim through Roto Discs and a new enemy called Strech. You'll
    need to swim carefully to avoid bumping into them. Once you get past them, you
    will face another winged Boom-Boom. There are two blocks in the area which will
    not hinder your jumps if timed right.
    
    ---
    
    +3-8+
    
    This level is almost the same as 3-3 except the level sinks even deeper and yes
    the Big Boss Bass is back and he is meaner than ever especially when the stage
    sinks deeper. Grab a Koopa shell to kill hit a block that frees a vine. You'll
    need these vines throughout the level to stay even safer. Have a Fire Suit on
    hand if needed since it will take out Big Boss Bass temporarily but buy you
    time to finish the level. To make the white Toad House appear, you need to grab
    44 coins in this level. This is why the Fire Suit is necessary because, it will
    be easier to grab the coins nearby where the P-switch.
    
    ---
    
    +3-9+
    
    There is somewhat of a shortcut in this level. It's not really a shortcut but
    you will be invisible underwater and able to proceed unharmed. Start of with
    avoiding the Bullet Bills. Soon there will be some bricks you'll need to swat
    away some bricks. Do so then backtrack to a white platform and squat until you
    go through it. Quickly and carefully head to the pipe and enter. Now you are
    underwater and invisible. You can still fall to your death though. Just swim
    to the end and you'll become visible near the exit pipe. The levei will be over
    shortly.

    Boss: Wendy O. Koopa
    
    Be careful in this level because if you don't keep your eyes peeled then you
    could get crushed on the side of the screen. This more that likely will happen
    on the NES version. When you reach a high pole that you can't cross from above
    without a P-wing, you are supposed to go below it. Watch out for cannons as you
    do so. Survive the onslaught of cannons, Bullet Bills, and jet flames to face
    off against Wendy O. Koopa. Unlike her brothers before her, she shoots candy
    rings that bounce around the room. Watch the trajectory of the rings to avoid
    them and stomp her three times to defeat her.

    No you did not shrink. The stage is just bigger and so are the enemies. Get
    past the waterfall and knock out three blocks with your tail, get a running
    start and fly to the left and swim up the top waterfall to a secret area with
    a lot of Big Berthas and a couple 1-ups. Get past the Koopa Paratroopa and work
    your way to the end of the stage.

    The Cheep Cheeps are out in full force in this level. Beware of the Piranhacus
    Gigantcus. They are bigger versions of Piranha Plants and those things are very
    scary. Use an Ice Block to reveal a Super Leaf in the giant question block.
    Bump a wood block to make a P-switch appear. Hit it and grab all the coins and
    the Starman. This will buy you some time to get the coins remaining after the
    P-switch wears off. You'll need all 24 coins in this level to make the White
    Toad House appear on the map. Once you are done, feel free to end the level.

    Quickly dispose of the Sledge brothers. They're stomps can stun you. Once they
    are gone, enter either pipe to go underground. In this level, the Spinys will
    behave like the Buzzy Beetles in a sense that when they are crawling upsidedown
    then they drop when you get close and spin towards you. Once you have a clear
    path from the level's 5th question block, fly to the top and get some coins up
    there then drop down. Get past the enemies here and get on the wooden block.
    Break the brick in the middle then break the one on the left to get the 1-up
    and stay along the high road there. Carefully get past the small platforms and
    end the level from there.

    If you thought Boo Didley was bad, check out the Hot Foot. These are the flames
    of candles who try to sneak up on you when your back is turned to them and stop
    when facing them. Proceed with caution when maneuvering through the two Thwomp
    Traps that move sideways. After the second one, go down the middle white pipe
    to enter a shortcut special area witho only the Dry Bones to worry about. Jump
    up to reveal two hidden coins to get out. Now run straight on to Boom Boom.
    Defeat him as before but there is a couple blocks obstructing you. That should
    not hinder your progress though.

    Time to start feeling froggy again. Dive into the water and swim to the bottom
    and enter the pipe. Currents won't hold you back while wearing the Frog Suit. 
    Go in the pipe for lots of coins. Once out, swim like you never swam before.
    Lakitu will be tossing Spiny eggs into the water. This is what makes the Frog
    Suit so crucial since you maintain your velocity. Go on and finish the level.

    This level introduces the Missile Bills. They function just like Bullet Bills
    except that when they pass you, they'll turn around and attack you again just
    like a guided missile. You'll need to stomp on them to get rid of them. At one
    point, you will see a brick that is normally out of reach but to hit it, stomp
    on a Bullet Bill and use it as leverage to hit the brick and uncover a vine. Do
    it again to reach the vine and climb up. There is a pipe that leads to a secret
    area containing a Tanooki suit. With your Tanooki suit on, you can become a
    statue by pressing down + B and have total invincibility for up to 5 seconds.
    Now all you got to do here is proceed to the end of the level without much
    trouble.

    +4-6+
    
    In this level, you can decide if you want to play it with normal-sized enemies
    or super-sized enemies. Everything changes by going inside the doors throughout
    the level. Within the blocks at the start is a Starman if you are in the normal
    sized area and a 1-up within the super sized area. Fly to the clouds above and
    to the right for some coins in the air and to make things easier, float your
    way as far right as you can. There is a 1-up next to the pipe before the magic
    door. Whether you want to finish the level big or small is up to you.

    Try to avoid falling into the lava while making your way across the Donut Lifts
    and watch out for Pobodos.There is a Fire Flower during your journey. At some
    point after the lava pit is a brick with a P-switch inside. Hit it to reveal a
    secret door marked by silver coins. It leads to a secret area full of pipes and
    directional platforms. There is nothing special here but when you reach the top
    then you enter another special area with a 1-up accessed through hidden coins.
    Enter the pipe for yet another secret area. There is a couple 1-ups in the big
    question block. Fly up the left side to find a secret stash of coins. Drop back
    down and enter the pipe on the right to go back to the main area. Get past the
    RotoDisc and head on to Boom-Boom. The platforms here can help you stomp on him
    three times.

    Boss: Iggy Koopa
    
    This is a tough airship to get through. In addition to Bullet Bills, you got to
    deal with vertical jet burners. You can take the high road or low road. The low
    road requires you to wait for the jets to recede. The high road requires you to
    jump on the Bolt Lift several times to stay above the jet burners. Once you get
    through all this, get the powerup next to the pipe then go down. Iggy is faster
    than his siblings, so be quick on beating him yourself.

    Use a Koopa shell to kill the Chain Chomp at the start then run back and forth
    until you built your flight meter to the max then fly to the upper left and go
    into the pipe. Get a running start and do a ducking slide in the small gap and
    jump while sliding to flying while ducking and get through the gap. This will
    lead to a Music Box and the level will end right there.
    
    ---
    
    +5-2+
    
    Enter the pipe and fall straight down to land on the Music Block. Stay at the
    top and go up to enter a secret area. In this area, go down the first pipe you
    come across for a lot of 1-ups. Once out, go up the pipe at the end for a short
    end of the level. 
    
    If you were unfortunate enough to fall to the bottom at the beginning, you'd
    have to deal with the Buster Beetles who toss Ice Blocks at you. It's tough but
    you can use the Ice Blocks on them your self.
    
    ---
    
    +5-3+
    
    Go down the pipe and this time you'll find yourself having to travel left. This
    level introduces the Kuribo's Shoe. Bop a Goomba wearing one from below then
    get in it. With the shoe on, you can jump on enemies you could not jump onto
    before like any Pirahana Plants or Spinys. With a Fire Suit, you can also shoot
    fireballs while in the shoe. You can even walk on the Munchers, which you need
    to do to collect a 1-up. Go down the pipe at the end, then go right. There may
    be no problem completing the level from here.

    Carefully avoid the Pobodo and RotoDisc and you jump over the lava pit. Watch
    out for the Thwomp Trap just past the pit. Once it rises back up, get a running
    start and fly through a brick and work your way upwards to a pipe. In this area
    you will see a formation of coins shaped like an up area. That is your cue to
    fly up and hit three invisible blocks that contain 1-ups. Once out, avoid the
    Thwomp Traps and RotoDisc and head for Boom-Booms room and beat him as you did
    before.
    ---
    
    +Tower+
    
    Get past three of the RotoDiscs and go up the pipe. Get past the Two Thwomp 
    Traps and go up the pipe at the end. There are some Piledriver Microgoombas at
    the start, take them out first then use your Racoon Suit to swat a brick that 
    reveals a 1-up. There is another 1-up in this same area but you need a P-wing
    to get it. Fly over the wall to the other side to get the 1-up and fly back and
    enter the pipe. Once you pass the Thwomp Trap and RotoDisc, you can work your
    way to the top and enter the upsidedown pipe. GO to the lower clouds and hit
    the brick to reveal a vine. Enter the pipe to end the level and go to the sky
    part of the level.
    
    ---
    
    +5-4+
    
    There are Rotary Lifts galore in this level. With A Racoon or Tanooki Suit on,
    or if you got a P-Wing, run then fly to the top onto the clouds. Stay along the
    top until the then on try to fly after the third cloud by running on the second
    one then slow down for a small hop and build up speed again to get enough of
    the P-meter to fly to the right. Once you start coming down, you should have
    enough height to float down to the exit pipe. At the end, Lakitu arrives and
    starts dropping Spiny Eggs, let them hit the ground and hit the exit block to
    turn every enemy into a coin and end the level.

    +5-5+
    
    This is unsafe ground that you are walking on. The only places that is safe to
    stand on are the wooden blocks and pipes. Most of the level's surface is made
    out Donut Lifts. You also got the Green Koopa Troopas to contend with as well.
    To get a White Toad House on the map, you must get at least 28 coins in this
    level. Doing this is kind of tricky since you must get a coin and stay on top
    of a Donut Lift to get the coin as it goes down then jump off. A Tanooki Suit
    is hidden in this level. To get it, use your Racoon Suit or a Koopa Shell to
    destroy the bricks covering the pipes and go into the second pipe. The Tanooki
    Suit is in the giant question block. There is a drawback for those who want to
    get the White Toad House. Going out the exit pipe from the Tanooki Suit area
    will place you further ahead in the level and you'll have to backtrack to get
    the other require coins. This level also has Super Leaves hidden everywhere.

    +5-6+
    
    The ParaBeetles are hear to give you a helpful stepping stone as long as you
    land on top of them. They can hurt you if you hit the side of them. This level
    scrolls to the right so stay on your toes. Standing on a ParaBeetle will make
    it dip down. That's you cue to jump to the next beetle. The only other enemy to
    watch out for is the Fire Chomp. It spits fireballs at you as long as one is
    part of its tail. Once its fire tail is gone, it will explode. A P-switch is
    located just before an area where the coins are underneath some bricks but have
    nothing underneath them.
    
    ---
    
    +5-7+
    
    Got a Starman in your inventory? Good then use it to start the level. As long
    as your invincibility is active then another Starman will be available in most
    of the question blocks thus giving you total immunity for the whole level.

    +Fortress+
    
    Pobodos are relentless in this Fortress. They pop up and down from everywhere.
    Be on your toes as you hop from platform to platform across the lava pits. A
    Starman will be located in the rightmost question block. If you are fast and
    careful enough, you can kill Boo Didley while still invincible. Make it through
    the stage to face Boom-Boom. This one has wings.

    +5-8+
    
    Run for your life. Lakitu is on the prowl once again. Don't stop for anything..
    well except for a few Koopa Troopas in the way but they are the least of your
    concerns. If you can kill Lakitu, take that opportunity for temporarily relief.
    At the end, Lakitu is still harassing you, hit the end marker to turn him and
    his Spinys into coins and end the level.

    +5-9+
    
    This level scrolls diagonally upward and to the right. With a P-wing this level
    is easier since the jumps are hard because of the way each platform will move
    either vertically or horizontally. The Fire Chomps make things even tougher as
    you dodge fireballs while jumping. When the screen stops scrolling jump into
    the upsidedown pipe and exit.

    Boss: Roy Koopa
    
    Cannons and Bullet Bills are coming in from all directions. There is a point
    where you may have to cross between a series of eight cannons but to avoid that
    you can stomp on a cannonball and cross above them. The boss fight is ahead.
    Roy Koopa is heavy. Whenever he jumps, don't be on the ground when he lands or
    you will be temporarily stunned. Jump on him when he is landing to avoid the
    shock and get in a shot of your own. Three hits and he is done.

    +6-1+
    
    Ignore the Fire Flower at the start. Clear a path so you fly up to a door high
    in the sky. The secret room harbors a P-switch and lots of coins. Getting to
    the coins is not easy. You must make a good ol' ducking dash to reach them in
    time. When you exit, you'll fall from the sky. Use the Racoon or Tanooki Suit
    to float down to the question block which contains a Starman. Get it and make a
    mad dash to the exit.
    
    ---
    
    +6-2+
    
    The screen is scrolling to the right. Not only do you have to keep up with it
    but you have to careful jump onto some icy clouds to stay alive. There are some
    high pillars of blocks and bricks that can crush you if you do not move fast
    enough. There are some ice blocks blocking a 10-coin brick. Get rid of them and
    bash the brick as fast as you can. Enter the pipe at the end. Before you exit,
    get on white hill and at the very right, jump to reveal a hidden coin. Use that
    as leverage to reach the very top where two hidden 1-ups await you.
    
    ---
    
    +6-3+
    
    Get on the moving platform and duck under the ice pillar. Wait for the Koopa
    Troopa to get out of the way and stomp on it once you are on the floor. You can
    decide to kick it away or take it with you to hit the question block. Run over
    the gaps and hop on the Koopa Troopa at the end and grab its shell to kick it
    at the brick to make a vine rise. Climb the vine and enter the pipe to get a
    Tanooki Suit. Once out, there is a 1-up you can get by waiting for the platform
    to be under it then after getting it, duck under the ice. From here, you will
    need to hop on the Koopa Paratroopa to get to the end.
    
    ---
    
    +Fortress+
    
    Stay on the moving block and be wary of the Pobodos. Ignore the question block.
    Near the end of the ride, watch out for the RotoDisc and hop off while you hole
    right and you should enter the opening. Avoid more RotoDiscs as you get the
    Starman. Now if you are small Mario, you have a distinct advantage as you don't
    have to worry about sliding up the low gap. Either way, if you are fast enough
    you can kill Boom-Boom in one shot if you make it to his lair while you are
    still invincible.
    
    ---
    
    +6-4+
    
    Take careful steps as you stay on the high ground. The Rotary Lifts are tricky
    in this level. When you reach a platform moving along a path, wait for it to
    pass underneath the ice then get on quickly and jump directly to the right of
    the ice and ride the platform to the end of its path. On the return trip, hop
    on the Orange Music Block to go into the sky for coins. Once dumped out, stay
    away from the twirl of the Rotary Lifts as you head for the exit.
    
    
    ---
    
    +6-5+
    
    You can only exit this level with a Racoon Suit, Tanooki Suit, or a P-wing and
    also, you need to have a Koopa shell handy. The Buster Beetles continually like
    to heave the Ice Blocks at you, wait for their supply to run out then attack.
    You can enter the 2nd pipe anytime you like. It contains a power-up to help you
    beat this level. Upon clearing the second set of ice bricks. Stomp on a Koopa
    Shell, get some run and fly to the of the area before the real bricks and kick
    the shell to the right to kill the Nipper Plants and clear away the blocks and
    thus being able to get out of here.
    ---
    
    +6-6+
    
    I suggest having a Fire Suit handy for this level. Take the low road and get
    the Starman so the Cheep Cheep won't be a pain and no will the enemies for a
    while. Swim carefully through a school of Cheep-Cheeps. Near the end of the
    swim is a set of pipes with Piranha plants. Burn them up and  run down a little
    gauntlet of the Spikes (the enemy) while shooting the fireballs. Kill or let
    the Cheep Cheep go by you then enter the pipe at the end. The level will be
    over shortly.
    ---
    
    +6-7+
    
    You'll need 78 coins in this level for a White Toad House which carries another
    Anchor for your arsenal. It is very tough as those Donut Lifts are no joke. You
    have to jump off of them at the right moment to get all the coins and then stay
    alive. This goes especially for that tricky jump you must make to enter the
    pipe at the end. Stay on the Donut Lift and leap off to the right at the right
    time. To fuffil your goal, you need your Fire Suit to melt the ice around the
    coins and melt them. Exit, stage right.
    ---
    
    +Fortress 2+
    
    You should've picked up a Hammer Suit in of the Toad Houses by now. With this
    weapon, Boo Diddly and the Thwomp Traps are no match for you. Your Hammers will
    kill them outright. The only other strategy I got for you is to not fall into
    any bottomless pits. The fight with Boom Boom is a slippery one but if you are
    on the platform, launch hammers at him to kill him instantly.
    
    ---
    
    +6-8+
    
    Use your ice bloks to uncover the Super Leaf, but honestly, I think a Fire Suit
    is more suitable for this level as none of those enemies including the Buster
    Beetle (unlike its cousin Buzzy) are a match to your awesome display of fire.
    
    ---
    
    +6-9+
    
    Got a P-wing, Racoon Suit, or Tanooki Suit? If you do, you'll finish this level
    in record time. Instead of going down the pipe. Just fly over the ice wall and
    this level is yours.
    
    ---
    
    +6-10+
    
    I don't feel like giving any strategy for this level. I'll just say that there
    are Munchers that are frozen in this level. They are invincible but if you free
    the ones over the pipe, you can run back and hit a vine is to the left of where
    some ice blocks used to be. Take an ice block from below the brick and launch
    it at the brick to sprout it. Climb the vine to the top and hit the P-switch.
    Ignore the coins and head for the pipe where the Munchers you freed were, then
    get the coins and go down the pipe. A Hammer Suit awaits you. Once out, work
    your way through the Buster Beetles and Koopa Troopas while getting past the
    rotary dial and end the level.
    
    ---
    
    +Fortress 3+
    
    Hopefully you still got your Hammer Suit left from last level. Use it to kill
    the Boo Diddlys and the Thwomp Traps. Watch out for the RotoDiscs and carefully
    navigate through the stretches and the conveyor belts and do not land into the
    spikes (obstacles). Stretches die from the hammers too. Another easy Boom Boom 
    fight is at the end.

    Start with a leap of faith over the pit when the opportunity comes. Don't use
    the Bolt Lifts at all. Get past those burners when safe. After you make it past
    them, you fight Lemmy. He tosses star balls all around. You can actually leap
    on them without taking damage. Get three hits on Lemmy to win.

    You'll go into a series of pipes as you work your way to the top. After the
    first curved pipe, you can do a curvy jump onto the question blocks above and
    get a hidden 1-up. Drop down go into the pipe on the left. Jump onto the White
    Music Block and get onto the sideway pipe. Another 1-up is in one of the bricks
    above it. Keep moving up as you avoid the piranha plants. At the very top, a
    1-up is hidden to the very left of the exit pipe. Get it and end this level.

    +7-2+
    
    You need 46 coins in this level for a White Toad House. To get this one, Frog
    Mario is need to get all the coins fast enough. Start off in a Frog Suit and go
    past the Nippers. Enter the second pipe to go to a lower level. Get the coins
    on the very left and then jump on the P-switch. Quickly get a move-on to snag
    all the coins needed for the house. Go back to the surface and watch out for
    the Venus Fire Traps who relentlessly attack. At the end, go down the lowest
    pipe to go down a level then enter the pipe in that area and make a hasty exit.

    +7-3+
    
    This is another one of those stages where you can beat the level by maintaining
    your invincibility so that the next one can be available. 
    
    ---
    
    +7-4+
    
    You have two options. You can use the Frog Suit for when you get ready to swim
    through the Jelectros later on in the level or you can use the Fire Suit to get
    rid of the annoying fish enemies especially the Blooper Nannys and Big Berthas.
    The screen is also scrolling so you got to move fast. You need to swim very
    cautiously to avoid touching the Jelectros.

    It is easy to get lost in this level. Some of the pipes leading to pipes with
    hidden coins that block you path. Here is the solution. Go up the pipe at the
    start then in the new area, go up the third pipe which comes before the ice
    blocks. Go to the very right and use your Racoon or Tanooki Suit to break the
    brick. Run and duck under the low ceiling then take the high road. Use your
    tail to float the gap then go down at the very right. Get a well-timed jump and
    float across the next gap to the exit pipe. If you fail to make it the first
    time then you will end up making a bridge of hidden coins. Work your way back
    around and you can end the level from there.
    
    ---
    
    +Piranha Plants+
    
    Wait until the Piranha Plant to recede then wait for the Venus Fire Trap to do
    the same. You will see a set of Munchers rising up and down the small pipes. Be
    sure to watch the rhythm of how they move so you can move along with their
    pattern safely. Wait for the upsidedown Piranha Plant to pull back then leap
    across the pit and wait for the other two plants to do the same and enter the
    next pipe after the Venus Fire Trap. A P-wing awaits you.
    
    ---
    
    +Fortress+
    
    You can stay to get coins galore but to end this level quickly, start with a
    P-wing and enter the door. Fly to the top and enter the pipe. Kill Boom Boom
    (this one has wings) as you did before.
    
    ---
    
    +7-6+
    
    Avoid the spikes (obstacles) as you use the Directional Lifts to transcend your
    way upwards. Try to stay away from the Piranha Plants sprouting in and out from
    the sides.
    
    ---
    
    +7-7+
    
    Yet another one of those maintain the invincibility levels and this time it is
    a definite must because the level is full of Munchers and if your invincibility
    wears off, you can cancel Christmas.
    
    ---
    
    +7-8+
    
    You will meet every plant you've face in the game with the exception of the
    Piranhacus Giagantus. The Nipper Plants even shoot fireballs.
    
    ---
    
    +7-9+
    
    This is a wierd maze. Run to the Music Blocks and go up as high as you can then
    go left and remove the ice blocks. Go up the crack to be at the very top and go
    right. At the Music Blocks, go left, up the crack, left again, and drop down.
    Go to the very right and go upwards. At the top, go right and zigzag as far to
    the bottom as you can and go right. The exit pipe is not to far away.
    ---
    
    +Fortress 2+
    
    Just about every pipe in this fortress has a Piranha Plant or a Venus Fire Trap
    in it. This makes getting past the Thwomp Traps and Boo Diddlys even tougher.
    If you got a Hammer Suit then there is no worries about this level except for
    the RotoDisc. The Hammer suit protects you from fireballs when you are in a
    crouching position. There is also a Starman that will make this level a little
    easier at the start. At the end, you will have to time a curving jump to get in
    the pipe or else you'll be killed instantly by the lava below. The fight with
    Boom-Boom is the same ol' same ol'.
    
    ---
    
    +Piranha Plants 2+
    
    All you will get is a lowsy mushroom so if you got a Music Box in your arsenal,
    use it and you won't have to worry about this level since the plant on the map
    will go to sleep.
    
    ---
    
    +Airship+
    Boss: Ludvig Von Koopa
    
    Ignore the Bolt Lifts and just safely cross through the pit via the bottom as
    you avoid the jetfire. With a Racoon Suit this airship is easier to jump over
    the pits when navigating through the short Bolt Lifts. The boss fight against
    Ludvig Von Koopa is a tough one. Just like Roy, he can shake the airship and
    temporarily stun you. He can also stun you when he's spinning after he gets
    stomped. Three hits still defeat him.

    Hammer Bros 1: Hammer
    
    Hammer Bros 2: Jugem Cloud
    
    Hammer Bros 3: Starman

    Toad House 2: Hammer Suit

                                 World 8: DARK CASTLE
                               *---------------------*
    
    +Tank Level+
    
    This level takes you through many tanks that shoot lots of cannonballs and lots
    of Bob-ombs. If you got a P-Wing then this level is nothing to worry about. All
    you got to do is equip it and fly off-screen and to the right during the entire
    level then come down when you reach the pipe. Kill the Boomerang Brother for a
    Starman and the end of the level.
    
    +Ship Level+
    
    Another level that can be passed easily via the easy way out. All you have to
    do here is survive the first ship then swim underneath the other two. Once you
    are past ship #3, jump out and go down the pipe. Defeat the Boom-Boom here.
    
    ~Note~
    he next three levels are random. You can choose to play them if you have not
    been pulled down yet.
    
    +Hammer Bros Trap+
    
    You face off against the whole Hammer Bros. clan. First up is one of the Fire
    Brothers. Get past it and take on one of the Boomerang Brothers. Just ahead are
    the traditional Hammer Bros. and the last enemy is one of the Sledge Brothers.
    At the end, you get a Super Leaf item.
    
    +Pobodo Trap+
    
    Don't be in a such a hurry here. Just take your time and make it past the lava
    while avoiding the Podobos popping out of it. There is a Super Leaf waiting for
    you at the end.
    
    +Cheep-Cheep Trap+
    
    You'll have to be on your toes here. The Cheep-Cheeps here are real tricky and
    they can bump you (and possibly kill you) out of nowhere. I suggest that you
    open this level with a Starman item to make it easier on yourself. Once again a
    Super Leaf is at the end. You'll notice some coins near the end shaped in this
    formation -> ^^
    
    +Airship+
    
    To hell with this level. I hope you have a P-wing left because this level is
    stupid. The airship moves super fast and it has a lot engine fire that can
    burn you alive if you aren't careful. The Monty Moles are no help either. Just
    use your P-wing and stay at the top of the level until the end. You will fight
    Boom-Boom in the end. He will take flight after the first stomp so stomp him
    again the moment he recovers from the first stomp to avoid dealing with flying
    Boom-Boom.
    
    +8-1+
    
    This is the first action stage of this level. There are a lot of Bullet Bills
    and cannons firing at you and there are also some tricky jumps to maneuver if
    you don't have Racoon or Tanooki suit on you.
    
    +8-2+
    
    This level harbors a major shortcut. Just sink into the quicksand at the start
    of the level. You will not die but you'll end up in a hidden area with a pipe
    on each side. The left pipe will just have a small passage and the right pipe
    is full of coins. Once you exit the right pipe, you'll be in-between two Venus
    Fire Traps but you are close to the end of the level. Get past them and go up
    the hill. Slide down the other side of the hill and hop across the music blocks
    to solid ground and the end of the level. Thanks to this shortcut, you do not
    have to deal with the Angry Sun.
    
    +Fortress+
    
    Go past the RotoDiscs and enter the door in the upper right. If you play your
    cards right then this should be the only door you enter prior to Boom-Boom's
    room. Go left and get a Super Leaf if you don't have it already and keep on
    pushing to the right as you break blocks in your path. Stay on your toes as you
    go through some conveyor belts and Thwomp Traps. At the end, avoid the Thwomp 
    Trap and drop down and go left. Hit the right block to bring up a P-switch and
    hit it to make a door appear in the upper right. Defeat the Boom-Boom while you
    are battling him on the conveyor belt that moves.
    
    +Super Tank Level+
    
    This is the same as the previous tank level with more cannons and Bom-ombs to
    deal with. At the end of the level is the final battle with Boom Boom. This one
    also sprouts wings after the first stomp.
    
    +Bowser's Castle+
    
    Congratulations on making it this far. Are you ready to take Bowser down? Are
    you ready to save princess Toadstool? Are you ready to show the world who is
    the number 1 hero? Let's go.
    
    At the beginning, make a run for it because those statues spit lasers at you.
    Ride the platform upwards and go right. Stay on the donut lift as it fall until
    you see an opening on the right and leap to safety. Avoid the Roto Discs as you
    go up the "stairs" and down the other flight of "stairs." Work your way up to
    the top as you avoid the Pobodos. Don't stay on the donut lifts too long unless
    you don't mind a lava bath. Once at the top, stay up there and enter the door.
    This shortcut provides a path leading to Bowser. Get past the laser statues and
    the fire breaths and enter the door at the end. It's Bowser time.
    
    The best way to defeat Bowser is to let him defeat himself. If you got a Fire
    Suit or a Hammer Suit then  you can kill him outright. Othereise, avoid his 
    fireballs and stand on any red bricks that hover over the pit. He will leap in
    the air and try to crash down on you. Move out of the way and he'll break away
    some brick. Avoid his fireballs again and get away from his next stomp. If he
    lands in the same spot three times then he will take a dive into the bottomless
    pit and die. Enter the door and save the princess.
    
    =======================SUPER MARIO BROS LOST LEVELS============================
    
    o---------------------o
          INTRODUCTION
    o---------------------o
    
    The evil King Koopa aka Bowser has kidnapped Princess Toadstool and turned all
    the other Mushroom Kingdom to blocks. These are the things you use as stepping
    stools. As Mario or his brother Luigi , you go through 32 normal levels and 20
    bonus levels which is really 13 levels divided into 4 substages and save the 
    princess whom has the power to undo the spell. Basically the same story as the
    first game its just Super Mario Bros. with a facelift.
    
    o---------------------o
           OPTIONS
    o---------------------o
    
    Unlike the first game, this is only a one player game where you choose to play
    as Mario or Luigi. Luigi is a much better jumper than Mario so most players 
    will find themselves using him more often but he has the ability to skid a lot
    so that's the price you got to pay for jumping longer distances.
    
    
    o---------------------o
           CONTROLS
    o---------------------o
    
    B button = Jump, stomp enemies, break bricks and hit question blocks above.
    Y button = hold to run faster, shoot fireballs
    Start = Pause the game, start the game
    Select = switch option
    
    left/right = move in that direction
    down = go down special pipes
    
    o---------------------o
           GAMEPLAY
    o---------------------o
    
    There are eight normal levels and each are seperated into four subsections. 
    Each level has their background settings. There is the Overworld (Day time),
    Underworld, Underwater, Overworld (Jungle), Overworld (Night), Overworld (Snow),
    Clouds and the Castle itself.
    
    If you beat level 8 without using warp zones you go to Level 9 which is mostly
    underwater. To get to Level A-D. You must beat the game 8 times.
    
    Red Mushroom - makes you big
    Poison Mushroom - makes you small or kills you
    Fire Flower - can shoot fireballs
    Star - Makes you invincible
    Green Mushroom - Extra life.
    Axe - dump Bowser in the abyss and complete the castle level.

                               *---------------------*
                                      World 1
                               *---------------------*
    
    1-1: This guide assumes you are playing as Luigi like we are since he has 
    better jumping. At the beginning is a chance to build up to 127 lives. Get past
    the green Koopa Troopa and there is a red Koopa Troopa encased in an area. Hit
    the second block to uncover a Mushroom then bump it over the wall without
    hitting the Koopa Troopa and wait for it to come back to you and get big. Break
    the first and third block without hitting the Koopa and it should be marching
    back and forth on te forth block. Break the first three blocks up top then jump
    against the side of the fourth top block and let go. Mari/Luigi will bounce
    continuously against the Koopa Troopa shell and rack up 1-up after 1-up. Once
    you're done, go right and avoid the Pirhana Plant on the ground. On the lower
    level is a multicoin block. Take the high road now and kick the red Koopa
    Troopa to the right and it will ricochet and kill the enemies at the bottom. At
    the end of the path is two pipes. Go over the second one but don't go too far.
    Jump back to the second pipe and go down, You get a few coins. Do not get the
    Poison Mushroom on the far left hidden block. Once out, go right and hit the
    flagpole.
    
    1-2: Jump past the Koopa Paratroopa and hop the gap. Jump over the pipe or
    stand on it when the Pirhana Plant is down and kill or get past the Goombas 
    then run across the high road. Mario has to hop across the falling platforms
    to get across. Sucks to be Mario, while Luigi can stay on top, Mario has to get
    past a series of pipes with Pirhana plants. There is an elevator of platforms
    going up. Mario can use this to get to the top of the screen or stay low. 
    Luigi can come down to exit the pipe on the right. Once out you can touch the
    flagpole. You could have stayed on top and use the warp in 1-2 but there is a
    special surprise for defeating Bowser in World 8 without warping. More on this
    later. We'll reveal the warp zones in the end of this guide too.
    
    1-3: Run right and hop on a palm then use a scale to proceed. Take out the
    Koopa Troopas or avoid them and watch for the Blooper which is outside its
    natural habitat. Hop on the side to side moving platform. Use the scale then
    take the high or low road and there is two stones in the air in the center to
    take you to the next palm tree, Get the powerup, use the side to side moving
    platform, a scake and hop on two palm trees and hit the pole.
    
    1-4: Avoid the firebar at the beginning. Hop over the pits carefully. Luigi
    skids a lot and jumps high enough to hit the ceiling. Avoid the firebars. Small
    Mario/Luigi can avoid the top ones easily. Watch for the Koopa Troopa in the
    way and avoid the Fire Breaths and when you face bowser, wait the right moment
    and run or jump over him andget the axe or shoot fireballs at him.
    
                               *---------------------*
                                      World 2
                               *---------------------*
    
    2-1: Run right and dodge or kill five Koopa Paratroopas. The Power-Up is in the
    second block. Hop the water and there is a star in the middle brick. Hop on the
    second pipe and hop left to go down a special pipe. The bonus area has a small
    gap so run across it instead. Once out, hop across te two pipes and a big palm
    tree. Hop on the side to side platform and use the spring to get over the pit.
    At the end of the set of bricks where there is a green Koopa Paratroopa in the
    area, hit the top blocks and find a beanstalk. Once down, avoid the mushroom on
    the left block. Use the spring and vault over the huge pit and kill all enemies
    on route to the exit.
    
    2-2: Run past the Green Paratroopa, kill the goombas and avoid the pirhana on
    the floor. Get rid of the Koopa Troopas. Hip over the gap and onto the block,
    then hop on the pipe and then head forward and make a hard jump to the right
    onto the high blocks then make a series of long jumps. There is a thin wall 
    with a star in it, When you reach a place where there is a Green Koopa Troopa
    and two blocks above it, the pipe before it is a special one. Go down and do 
    not jump at the far left because there is a hidden mushroom there. Once out,
    jump on it. Jump and hit a hidden coin and Luigi can jump onto the pipe easily
    but Mario must hit another hidden coin. Get past the Koopa Troopas and Goombas.
    Use the Koopa Paratroopa for leverage if you are mario. Hop to the right and
    stomp or avoid the Goombas and hit the flagpole.
    
    2-3: As you go right, there are Koopa Troopas, Koopa Paratroopas, Cheep-Cheeps
    and bloopers in the way. Use careful steps and the broken bridges. After a
    couple palm trees after the last broken area, then the flagpole is ahead.
    
    2-4: Run right and jump up the narrow passage before the Koopa Troopa comes
    then jump on it and kick it to the right and it will knock out more enemies up
    to a 1-up. Watch for its ricochet off the firebar block. Avoid the firebar and
    stand on the block and hop across the lava. Run across the gaps avoiding more
    firebars. The Pobodo appears for the first time here. There is a hidden block
    before the next set of firebars. After the last two firebars, you meet Bowser.
    Fry him or run under him since the blocks stop your jump and get the axe.
    
                               *---------------------*
                                      World 3
                               *---------------------*
    3-1: Go right and hit the Hammer Brothers from below to get rid of them. Hop
    the gap and avoid the poison mushroom in the last coin block. Hop on the brick
    then you hit the first coin block for a power-up. Luigi can hop over the large
    gap. 
    
    Optional: Go down the grey pipe. Watch out for the bullet bill here and you are
    out. You have a free trip to the warp zone that takes you back to level 1.
    
    Get past the Bullet Bills and use the Koopa Paratroopa for leverage to the pipe
    and hop across the
    
    3-2: The object of this level as with the other underground levels is to stay
    low to the ground and never coming up unless it is necessary. in order to move
    on. There are red and blue Cheep-Cheeps and Bloopers in this level. You'll also
    encounter a Koopa Paratroopa who doesn't belong in the water is only harmed by
    fireballs. Same with the Koopa Troopas. Hell, all enemies can't be stomp on
    in the water. After some tricky swimming, you'll come out through a side pipe
    and be back on dry land and on the way to the flagpole.
    
    3-3: Kick the Troopa shell into a slew of other Koopa Troopas for a possible
    1-up. Wait for the Pirhana Plant to go down and then use the scales to proceed,
    wair for the two pirhana plants to go down and move to the catapult and spring
    over the scale and land next to the palm tree with a Koopa Toopa. Run across
    the falling platforms then jump on the shell on the small steps in the air.
    Jump over the Koopa Paratroopa or use it for leverage to get a high score on 
    the pole.
    
    3-4: This is one of those castle levels where you need to take the right path
    to proceed, the wrong path makes you try again. Take the low path first then
    the lowest path again but you'll need to be small. Next, stay at the highest
    path and avoid the firebars and take the highest path again. Jump carefully and
    jump right to face Bowser if you're Luigi or under him if you're Mario and take
    the axe.
    
                               *---------------------*
                                      World 4
                               *---------------------*
    
    4-1: The red pirhana plants and the Lakitu n' Spinys make their debut here.
    Move right and avoid the Spinys if you aren't Fire Mario or Fire Luigi. Lakitu
    will leeave when you reach coin blocks. The last block has a power-up. To get
    across the water, do a running jump on the spring and push forward till you
    are safely across. Lakitu reappears. Do not touch the poison mushroom next to
    the pipe. The beanstalk is the lone brick above the pipe. When you come down,
    you'll be brought back to the mushroom area before Lakitu reappeared. This time
    ignore the beanstalk and head for the pole.
    
    4-2: Watch out for the Bullet Bills and get a Power-up. Grab the star from the
    brick next to the two question blocks and trudge your way to the right. Time
    your jumps to hop over the first Hammer Brother then take the low road and run
    past the red Pirhana plants when they are down and jump right. The pole is 
    close by.
    
    4-3: Use the scales, side-to-side platform, and falling platform to the right
    and land on a Paratroopa to land safely on the next platform. Get the power-up
    if needed then continue right. Watch out for the bullet bills as you use the
    falling platform and scale to move right. Use the Koopa Paratroopa for leverage
    to the stones and reach the pole.
    
    4-4: There is a large firebar. Get past it then kill three Goombas. Get past
    another long firebar and a short one. Then wait for the Koopa Troopas to fall
    then hop up the block when the firebar is out of the way. Mario needs a running
    jump to do this. Hop past the Hammer Brother and take the low road. Defeat the
    Goombas and Koopa Troopas and watch for the fire. When you reach Bowser, watch
    for the Pobodo first then the firebar then run under Bowser the first chance
    you get an grab the axe.
    
                               *---------------------*
                                      World 5
                               *---------------------*
    
    5-1: Get rid of the Buzzy Beetle and watch for the overhead red pirhanas. Move
    right then at the steps, the wind blows you to the right, time your jumps to
    land safely. After the fourth jump, the wind stops. Time your jumps past the
    two red pirhanas. Safely make your way to the right till you reach a small step
    on the ground, Use it to reach other steps then hop over the Koopa Paratroopas
    or use them for levrtage. The beanstake has a lot of coins and leads to level
    6 but ignore the beanstalk if you like and reach the pole at the end.
    
    5-2: If you are Big Mario/Luigi, the key point to finishing this level is
    getting to the top and staying there until either you drop down and exit or
    keep going to reach the warp to level 7. Otherwise, watch for the overhead
    pirhana plants and this level is yours. A mushroom or Fire Flower is in an
    invisible block at the start.
    
    5-3: Stay on the moving platform until you see two Koopa Paratroopa and use
    them to reach the pipe and go down. When you exit, hop across a pipe, scale,
    and a big palm tree and watch for Bullet Bills. Hop over the Blooper and land
    on a side to side platform and then jump on a Koopa Paratroopa to reach the
    palm tree. Use the falling platforms to reach the palm tree after that. After
    a scale and small blocks in the area, the pole is ahead.
    
    5-4: Use the falling platforms and get through two Pobodos. Watch for the
    firebar in the next corridor. As Luigi, take the high road since you can reach
    it easily if he is small. Just watch for the Pobodo. Come down when the firebar
    is out of range then watch for the Pobodos afterwards. Avoid the firebars and
    take the low road if you're small and you'll be untouched. Hop right carefully
    and get through a Pobodo and a long ass firebar and now you got fire breath to
    get through. Take the low road again if you are small and get ready to face
    Bowser. Nothing changes here.
    
                               *---------------------*
                                      World 6
                               *---------------------*
    
    6-1: Get the power up where Buzzy Beetle is and ignore the Koopa Paratroopa.
    Move through the enemies and try to kick a Koopa Troopa shell into the Hammer 
    Brother and hit a hidden coin near the pipe for leverage. Hop onto the Bullet
    Bill Cannon and hop right. Avoid the Pirhana plants and bop the Hammer Brothers
    from below but try to reach the pipe in the corner. It's a shortcut that takes
    you to close to the end.
    
    6-2: Another underwater level. This one is a little harder than the others. Be
    careful while swimming high or low. THe enemies are out in full force.
    
    6-3: Cheep-Cheeps and Koopa Troopas and Koopa Paratroopas everywhere. Both
    powerups are in a coin block and brick.
    
    6-4: Another maze castle. Take the low road under the long firebar. After the
    pipe, get past the Hammer Brother and take the top path, now take the bottom 
    path next under the pipes and use the side to side platform at the bottom. Stay
    low and get past Bowser. He throws Hammers this time.
    
                               *---------------------*
                                      World 7
                               *---------------------*
    
    7-1: The wind blows early but it helps a little to get you across the first
    pit. Maneuver through the pipes and run across the gaps. Watch for the Bullet
    Bills and Cheep-Cheeps and get the star. Now it's time to rampage through the
    level. The exit will not be far ahead once the invincibility wears off.
    
    7-2: Use the moving platform and get a Power-up and bounce off two Koopa
    Paratroopas and go down a high pipe. You should have fireballs now after
    getting the flower from the bonus area. Shoot everything in sight then avoid
    the firebars and use the two falling platforms to reach safe ground then use a
    Koopa Paratroopa to reach the next falling platform and a pipe. The pole is a
    leap to the right.
    
    7-3: The wind blows early. Watch out. Start off jumping from spring to spring.
    When you land on safe ground, get a mushroom and start moving from spring to
    spring again. Watch for the firebars and the exit is shortly after the wind
    stops.
    
    7-4: General tip. Stay away from the top of level. Once you go up there, you
    won't come back down and will have to die of time out. This is the hardest of
    all castles. Avoid the firebars and get a hidden mushroom on the wall before
    the elevators and before the firebar touches you. Get acroos the elevator and
    don't go up there. Go down and zigzag past the firebar. Kick the last Koopa
    Troopa into the swarm of Buzzy Beetles and get a 1-up. Carefully sacrifice
    your power-uo in the first firebar and use the invincibility to get past the
    second one quickly. Get past the fire breath and Pobodos and run under Bowser
    and avoid the hammers and dump him.
    
                               *---------------------*
                                      World 8
                               *---------------------*
    
    8-1: Kick the Buzzy Beetle aside and get a Mushroom which you know you need
    since you sacrificed it in World 7-4. The wind blows. Use the Koopa Paratroopas
    for leverage to get across. Watch for the Hammer Brothers here and take the
    high road or low road to avoid the next one. Be careful and the exit is just
    ahead.
    
    8-2: This level is tricky because the exit is elsewhere. Use the falling
    platform to reach a brick with a mushroom. Use the spring to get on the wall
    then jump onto some steps. keep moving and go past the Koopa Paratroopa but
    don't scroll past it. Stand on the brick on the right and let the Hammer
    Brother fall to its death then bounce off the Koopa Paratroopa and reveal a
    beanstalk that leads to  the flagpole. If you mess up, go to the end and go
    down the bonus pipe and try again.
    
    8-3: Kill the Lakitu and jump to the clouds and as Luigi, you can jump off the
    edge of the clouds and land on the falling platform. Get rid of the Lakitu and
    Koopa Troopas and start jumping past the Hammer Brothers hammers when safe but
    watch for a Poison Mushroom hidden block that messes you up when jumping past
    the second Hammer Brother. Use the spring to hop onto the Koopa Paratroopas and
    get past the second set of Hammer Brothers. Use two hidden coins to reach the
    scales and the exit is straight ahead.
    
    8-4: Curve your jump to get below then hop across the lava pit. Get past the
    Pobodo and firebar and use the Koopa Paratroopa for leverage then get in the
    pipe below the blocks. Swim your way carefully to the exit pipe. Curve your
    jump to  get on the right pipe but watch for the Pirahana plant then go down.
    Hop to the right and avoid the Posion Mushroom in the thrid coin block. Use the
    side to side platform below and stay low and hop over the long firebar and at
    the end of the corridor, wait for the Koopa Paratroopas to be one down and one
    right and hop on them to get through. There is a Mushroom above the exit pipe.
    Run under Bowser then get past the Buzzy Beetle and Pirhana plant to face the
    real Bowser. Get past him to save the princess and she'll recite a poem.
    
    Peace is paved
    The kingdom is saved
    Hurrah to Mario/Luigi
    our only hero
    This ends your trip
    of a long friendship
    
    100000pts added for each player left in the FDS version.
    
                               *---------------------*
                                      World 9
                               *---------------------*
    
    9-1: Go down the pipe and swim through an underwater version of the overworld.
    The enemies here are mostly from the overworld and you can only kill them with
    fireballs.
    
    9-2: Another underwater level. Juke and jive through Pirhana plants and Lakitu
    n Spinies and that's it.
    
    9-3: What the hell? Bowser outside of his castle? Stay at the very top of this
    level to complete it
    
    9-4: This is a short level, you'll notice the walls are shaped funny. We'll
    they are Kanji characters aka Japanese letters that spell arigatou which means
    "thank you" in English.
    
                               *---------------------*
                                      World A
                               *---------------------*
    
    A-1: There is a Mushroom hidden in between the blocks, and once you get rid of
    the green Koopa Troopas, check the bricks above for a beanstalk and get coins
    in the clouds. Once down, there is a 1-up in the block next to you. Kick the
    top Koopa Troopa to the left to get rid of other enemies and a 1-up as it
    zigzags down. Get past the hammer brothers and the Koopa Paratroopas and the
    Pirhana Plants. Get rid of the Koopa Troopas on the thin walls and the exit
    is ahead.
    
    A-2: Use the spring to reveal a 1-up and move right but slow down so it can 
    catch up to you then catch it as it falls. Get to the top of the level ASAP
    and stay there, its hell making it to the exit via bottom. You can drop down
    and go to A-3 or keep moving and warp to World B-1
    
    A-3: This is an easy level. The wind blows temporarily. All you have to worry
    about are the Cheep Cheeps landing on you and that's it. The other enemies are
    no real threat.
    
    A-4: Avoid the Pobodo and firebars especially the long one that can get you if
    you are on the coin block containing a power-up. Avoid two more firebars and a
    Pobodo and hop a pit. Go up the steps and kick a Koopa Troopa shell and what's
    this? Pobodos aren't invincible after all as you'll find out. Watch for the 
    gang of Pobodos then some Bullet Bills and fire breath and now its time to
    dump hammer-throwing Bowser.
    
                               *---------------------*
                                      World B
                               *---------------------*
    
    B-1: Get the coins and leap on two pipes carefully. A power-up is the 3rd loose
    coin block. Now the general rule us to stay on top of the level as much as you
    can to beat this level easily.
    
    B-2: This is an underwater level. Nothing fancy here. Just be careful. There is
    a long firebar in this level and a Koopa Paratroopa at the end.
    
    B-3: This level is simple until you get to the spring. By this time, the Bullet
    Bills appear and the jumps are trickier. But we think you'll still make it out
    of here with hardly any trouble.
    
    B-4: Avoid going down all pipes. If you want to warp to level D (there is no
    penalty for doing so), go down the fifth pipe from the start. Otherwise, just
    keep going till you face and defeat Bowser.
    
                               *---------------------*
                                      World C
                               *---------------------*
    
    C-1: Maneuver through pirhana plants and Koopa Paratroopas and you'll be fine
    for the first part. Just watch for the overhead pirhana plants the most. Luigi
    can make it over the pit almost but almost doesn't count. Use the Koopa
    Paratroopa to get by. Get past a Hammer Brother and use the Koopa Paratroopa
    for leverage. The exit is a little ways ahead.
    
    C-2: Juke and jive through Cheep Cheeps, Bloopers, and Koopa Paratroopas for 
    the first part. Jump carefully across two loose stones and a palm tree, leap
    onto a Koopa Paratroopa to get across safely. Watch for Bullet bills and this
    level is over.
    
    C-3: This is World 7-3 all over again. Only difference is that there is a
    Lakitu that throws Spinies and that's it. Refer to World 7-3 for more info.
    
    C-4: Another case of dejavu as this is a remake of World 7-4 with a couple
    added obstacles. Like before, stay away from the top of the level because once
    you go up, you ain't getting back down.
    
                               *---------------------*
                                      World D
                               *---------------------*
    
    D-1: The Hammer Brothers arrive early and their pattern is hard. Try to bop
    them from below if you are lucky enough. Otherwise, creep slowly and wait for
    the top one to arrive first and approach then jump past it. Then deal with the
    second one by any means. Use the Koopa Paratroopa to make it across. Go down
    one pipe and get bonus coins and when you come out, a mushroom is near the 
    river. The Hammer Brothers arrive later on again. The wind blows temporarily
    but stops as you near the pole.
    
    D-2: Kick a Koopa Troopa shell down the gap. Watch for overhead Pirhana Plants.
    Hop onto the top area from the Bullet Bill Cannon if you are Luigi. You can go
    down the pipe. Use the stone to reach the stone and pole.
    
    D-3: Watch out for the Bullet Blls here. Get the powerup and use the hidden
    coin to avoid the Hammer Brothers. Spring over the wall, get past another
    Hammer Brother. Get past more bullet bills and Hammer Brothers and the exit is
    after the last set of cannons you'll need for leverage.
    
    D-4: The beginning is just like World 8-4 except you keep on going instead of
    going down the pipe below the blocks. At the end is a pipe leading to the
    Overworld. Stay on the pipe until you can safely leap over the Hammer Brother.
    The wind blows shortly. Go down the pipe when it is safe to jump. Its a bonus
    area that leads back to the Castle. Run under Bowser, get past the Hammer 
    Brother and Bowser is not too far. Beat him and you survive the ultimate
    challenge that Nintendo was afraid to bring to the US.
    
    o---------------------o
           WARP ZONES
    o---------------------o
    There are 10 Warp Zones in all.
    
    World 1-2: Hit one of the blocks above the second pipe from the start of the
    level to create a beanstalk. It leads to World 3
    
    World 1-2: Get to the top and go past the exit and go down the pipe. Go to
    the far right as you can and use the two invisible blocks before the lava to
    get to the top and reach the warp to World 4
    
    World 1-2: Same as getting to World 4 except instead of going down the pipe,
    you just keep going till you reach a warp to World 2
    
    3-1: The are two ways to get to this warp. Go down the first pipe or spring
    over the flagpole. This leads back to World 1
    
    5-1: Climb the beanstalk near the end and it leads to World 6
    
    5-2: Hit the hanging block near the up elevator to reveal a beanstalk that
    leads to World 8
    
    5-2: Stay on top of the level and get past the exit pipe and it leads to World
    7.
    
    8-1: Go into the first pipe after the fifth upside down pipe and it leads to
    World 5.
    
    A-2: Stay on top of the level and go past the exit to warp to World B
    
    B-4: Go down the fifth pipe you see and it leads to World D.
