Unlimited Toad House Items

To do this you must first load a saved game file which you have cleared every level (including the lettered bonus levels). Toad Houses now will no longer disappear after you take the items. The only exception are the ones that appear based on your timer when you finish a level. If you want to have ALL of your Toad Houses back, save the game and then intentionally lose ALL of your lives. When you return, ALL of the Toad Houses will be restored.

Turtle Lives

When you have a turtle shell look for an arrangement of blocks that look like stairs. Set the turtle shell down on the stairs and when the turtle inside comes out jump on his head. If you time it correctly Mario or Luigi will keep jumping on the turtle's head and you will build up lives. When you have the desired amount of lives jump off.

Secret Exit in World 7-6

After you reach the mid-level point you will meet an area with two rows of bricks. To do this trick you must be big but not mega mushroom sized. Heres what you have to do, knock out the middle brick on the top row then go on to knock out the third brick on the bottom row. This will make a vine grow, climb the vine then start making your way to the end of the level and reach the red flag. Hope this is helpful to all you's out there if you have any further questions or opinions - thoughts feel free to comment below and i'll try to get back to you ASAP (for anyone who does not know what ASAP means it means as soon as possible). Thank you for taking your time to read this.

Bonus mushroom houses

When you get to the end of your game finish and land the timer on the same two digits at the end eg. 011,288 etc. When you land the last two digits on 11,22 or 33 it will reward you with the red mushroom house which you then go in and get a random item box. When you finish and get the timer on 44,55 or 66 it then gives you the green mushroom house which you go inside and get 1-ups. Stop the timer at 77,88 or 99 and you'll get a orange mushroom house which will award you with a mega mushroom. Hope this is helpful!

Infinite 1-Ups in World 2-4

This is probably the easiest and fastest way to get infinite 1-Ups. First, just go through World 2-4 as you normally would, and stop when you get to the staircase at the very end of the level. Stand on the first (bottom) step of the stairs, and wait for the Koopa to come. As soon as the Koopa lands on the second step, jump. If this is timed right, you will keep bouncing on the shell and start getting 1-Ups. If you mess up, just walk to the left a good distance and when you come back to the staircase the Koopa will be back.

How To Play As Luigi ^-^

Hey everyone, I know this game is kind of old but some people don't know how to play as Luigi on this game, so I've decided to tell you. When the screen starts up and you go to the selection to click on a saved game file, press and hold both of the L + R buttons on the top of your DS at the same time as you're selecting the saved file, and you'll hear Luigi talking in the background. You will now be able to play as Luigi. But if you get a game over or restart your DS, you'll have to redo it again or you'll be playing as Mario. BTW, if you're using DeSmuME, an emulator for the Mac & PC to play Nintendo DS games, hold the Q + W keys on your keyboard. Hope this helps! Enjoy playing as Luigi!

A second hidden vine on 1-1!

When you start the first level of the game, play the level until you have passed the mega mushroom box and the three bricks that follow after that, then you will see two other bricks that you see exactly after the three that had followed the mystery box containing the mega mushroom. Now jump on the two bricks then walk on to the right brick of the two, then jump once more. When you have jumped you should notice the hidden box that contained the vine. When you have climbed the vine, to your right you will see a box, when you have hit that box a 1-up will come out. Then if you continue to your right there will be a platform with coins over it. That is the second hidden vine in 1-1.

Free Mushroom Houses

Instead of immediately jumping onto the flag pole at the end of a stage, take your time and watch the clock. If you hit the flag when the last two digits of your timer are the same (example: 133, 211, or 099) you'll unlock a mushroom house on your World Map. If the last two digits are 1, 2, or 3, you'll unlock a red mushroom house. If the last two digits are 4, 5, or 6, you'll unlock a green mushroom house. If the last two digits are 7, 8, or 9, you'll unlock an orange mushroom house.
