Extra Lives

When you perform the following 6 actions during the game you will be able to gain the indicated amount of extra lives.

1) Jump on 7 turtles to get an extra life. If you are fast enough you can keep jumping on the turtles until there are no more to jump on.

2) Go to World 2-3. Just before the flag are some stairs with a turtle moving down. Use a precisely timed jump to continue bouncing on it's shell to collect up to 99 lives.

3) When you are riding on a Yoshi jump on the bullets 7 or 8 times to get as many extra lives as you want.

4) Kill 8 enemies with a star on you to get an extra life. If you are fast enough you can keep it going until the star runs out.

5) Kill 8 enemies with a turtle shell you will get an extra life. If you run fast enough you can keep hitting the turtle shell until there are no more enemies.

6) Freeze the Pokeies then do a quick Ground Pound to get at least 5 extra lives.

If you stand on the second pipe on a wheel of 1-1 you think you are going to get crushed but it will lead you to a secret room there are three boxes with 1 up mushrooms

In world 1-1, if you stay in the pipe area that leads to the third star coin, you won't be crushed. Instead, it will lead you to an area with a ton of coins and 3 1-up hidden blocks (they are where there are missing coins)

I get my lives (and mushrooms) stocked up in world 6. in the mushroom bonus place (where you run into the bullets on the map). If you collect all of the blue mushroom balls without killing any bullets you get 3 mushrooms and 3 lives each time. Smile

Another way: on World 1-3 you can pick up the Venus fire trap or his fireballs using Yoshi. Throw it at a bunch on enemies to get some extra lives.
