You know the box at the end of the level?the one with all the items flashing rapidly fast.well,i know how to get the star 96% of the time on that.before you hit the box and get mushroom or whatever you get,run all the way until the letter "P" is liting up and flashing at the bottom of the screen.and while it is still flashing,when you get to the box,jump up to hit the box,make sure the "p" is still flashing & liting up.and when you hit it if the "P" is is still lighting and flashing you will most likely get the is how many lives 3 stars or 3 mushrooms get you. 3 stars=5 ,1-ups,and 3 mushrooms I think is.....2 or 3, 1-ups.hope I helped! :P

shortcut in bowsers castle and secret area

You will need
To be able to get bowsers castle
Good timing
First use p-wing and go to bowsers castle at the top of the stairs go all the way to the right and jump grab the 1-up mushroonm and crouch fly to where there is a gap and let go you will go through the wall and miss a bit of the stage out now fly to the furthest side away and go to the 2nd or 3rd one down 2nds easiest now go to where the thwomp is it will move from side to side now go down the U block and when your down jump to the side and get through there and when you go through the final door there will be a gap in the floor
And your at the secret area

Secret spot in world 8

In world 8 there's a secret sand spot on the sand level its the first quick sand.....

Warp whistle

OK, if you go to the first world and level 3 go through the level like normal then at the end there is a white block get on top of it and hold down for 10 seconds.
You should be behind the scenery run all the way to the right and open the chest there will be a warp whistle.

Get One Of The Warp Whistles

Get a p wing or racoon mario and fly in the world 1 castle and fly above the top of the screen past the door. Press the up button and you will see a treasure chest. Open it, and a warp whistle will be there.

Get level select

Beat the game to obtain level select.

Do NOT be lazy!

It's a good idea to complete every level in each world because once you have destroyed BOWSER in he's castle in world 8 you have to beat those levels you skipped after you have completed bowser's castle!
When you have done that you will be able to play levels over and over again but you can still get stuff mushroom houses, you can also play against the hammer and boomarang throwing guys and you can play the castles including bowser's again!
I have a inventary full of P wings!

1. When you play the game and you reach an airship level (perferred to be called Bowser's castle) and you lose the first time, the airship will fly somewhere in the world. When you go to the castle nothing wIll happen.

2. To get to Boom-boom directly by entering the third door then repeatedly tapping up on the control stick.
For the second code I got it from the Nintendo power magazine so trust the publisher.

Get all cards right on moving spade card

Save your game before you get the moving spade card when you are with the cards, the first card has to be a 1up card of not then just load your game again. When you get the 1up card as the first card then the next card will be a mushroom. The order is 1up, mushroom, 10$, mushroom, flower, star, mushroom, 10$, star, 20$, 20$, flower, star, 1up, flower, mushroom, flower, star.

Secret area in world2

Make sure you have a hammer (not hammer suit) and go to the top left hand corner of the screen of world 2,
Where the mound of dirt is, use the hammer.
This will reveal a secret area with a red version of the hammer bros. Beat them to obtain a warp whistle.

Skip from world 1-3 to world 4-1

Go to level 3 in world 1 and when you pass the second turtle that tries to hit you with a boomarang you should see a red turtle kill it and hold down for about 3 to 6 seconds and it should take you behide everthing and finish the level don't jump when you are behind something.
Because you wont be behind anything anymore but jump over the enimes when you are not behind anything and when you finish the level you will be behind the black spot and toad will come up and let you open the box "you have to press B to open the box"and then use the whistle and you have to go to the last tube it will show a 4 above to tube.

Keep your item

If you lose an item you really want and you just lost and in your still in a level press start and save and quit and you will still have it

Magical white blocks!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

In any level of the super mario game you see a white block. Jump/Walk on the block and keep pressing the down buton after a couple of seconds you will fall below the block. You are know in the backround and can run straight through the level.
DANGER:You still are able to be hit by any longrange attack!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


This is not much of a hint but if you have the racoon power well stop and press down then B.
And the racoon should turn into a kind of a black creature holding something. While he is transformed it will only about 5 seconds and you won't be able to move it.
This is strange I found this out when I was in world .

Double Suit!

Ok, this is my first cheat, but here it goes!If you bump a ? block and a super leaf, fiery flower, ect.( not a super mushroom) comes out, and you shrink down to the tiny Mario, don't fear! If you get the flower or leaf, you skip Super Mario and go to Racoon or Fiery Mario!!!!!!
Is that good or what?
