Chapter 1          INTRODUCTION

      Welcome to my first full-length FAQ.  On the first video game I ever 
played, Super Mario Brothers.  I really don't have much more to 
say...uh...yeh...this game was fun, and it was kinda fun writing this FAQ, 
although it took me a while.  I am using the great Marshmallow as my role 
model although I don't believe I will ever write as many FAQs as him.  If 
you don't know who marshmallow is, you don't read the greatest FAQs for most 
N64 games.

      Using this FAQ, you will find all the stuff you heard about but could 
never find in SMB. There are many secrets hidden in this game, and they’ve 
been exposed I this walkthrough. There is also a section about different 
codes, cheats, and glitches in the game, including the infamous minus world.

That's pretty much all I have to say. So, uh...happy gaming!!!

Chapter 2          HISTORY

      What's gone on with this FAQ...

03-10-01           Updated some stuff for version 2.5 and. This is now
                  featured on another site, RoyalRanger's NES site.

02-06-01           Finished version 2.0 of this FAQ and sent it out to
                  all the sites hosting it. Updated site list and got
                  rid of all the dead-beat sites.

11-09-00           Well I've finally finished Version 2! I'm sending
                  the update off to all the big sites that are hosting
                  this FAQ now. My site's up again, but the address
                  has changed to go.to/dotdotdot. I also began work on
                  version 2 today (got a head start).

                  appendix sections. Perfected formatting for text
                  format, because .doc sucks.

Chapter 3          STORY

      Wow, such an original story!!!  Hmmm, let's see...the evil king has 
kidnapped the princess, and her boyfriend goes to save her along with his 
brother.  Yes, the same old thing, however....

      This evil lizard-dragon thing, Bowser Koopa, that has a castle in 
Mushroom Land, where all the mushroom people live, kidnaps the Mushroom 
King's daughter, princess Peach Toadstool.  Some squire type guy sent by the 
king, Toad, sets out to save her.  However, Toad is a short little guy with 
a giant mushroom on his head, so he's got no chance.

      Enter Mario, an Italian plumber from Brooklyn, NY (according to the 
later movie).  He is in love with the fungi princess, and his brother and he 
set out on a valiant quest to save her from the Evil lord Bowser Koopa and 
his Koopa Troopa and Goomba minions.

      Ok, enough of that...  Not that anyone read it...

      Here's a story I read at http://nesoracle.retrogaming.net :

The True Story Behind Super Mario Brothers.
By: Ryan (Gamme) McCulloch

      Introduction: Many people do not know the true story behind the game 
Super Mario Brothers. Like with Roswell, NM, the building of the pyramids, 
and the JFK Conspiracy; there are many "stories" attributed to it - none of 
which can ever be PROVEN true (as well as never be proven false). But here 
now, you can finally die in peace. For, hold on to your seats folks, here 

"Secrets Revealed: Super Mario Brothers"

      As many people erroneously think, The Kingdom of the Mushroom People 
was never actually peaceful. In fact, it wasn't even called "The Kingdom of 
the Mushroom People". It was known as "The Republic of the Gibrion Alliance" 
(The RGA), a struggling Middle Eastern Nation in the midst of a Civil War. 
Mario was not a happy-go-lucky plumber; he was a notorious protester, who 
had been jailed thrice for speaking out against the Gibrion Socialist 
Republic Government. At this time, King Koopa was not a king - he was a 
small-time politician, known by the name of Charles Kooper.

      The Gibs had been using the Shrooms (Mushroom People) for hundreds of 
years now as slaves. The Shrooms were just beginning to become smarter - and 
with wisdom comes defiance. You see, for 2 months now the Shrooms had been 
planning to overthrow the Gibs, and start a new nation of their own. All 
they needed now was a leader.

      Charles Kooper stepped in to take the job. He was a great leader and a 
wonderful orator. He would get the Shrooms all riled up with his powerful 
speaches. It was June 6, 1983. The Shrooms had binded together and started 
war with the Gibs. In this army was protestor Mario. He had no fear of dying 
for his Mushroom People. The terrible war lasted 1 year, 3 months, and 16 
days. The Shrooms had lost more men then they even knew they had. But they 
had did it - they defeated the oppressive Gibrion Government. They had 
killed the evil Gibrion leader Snort (his son Wart comes to play in the next 
story). The Shrooms had crowned Charles Kooper as their new king.

      But soon Charles Kooper (King Koopa, now) became power and money 
hungry. He reverted back to the Gibrion ways of slavery. Mario was the first 
to speak out against this. However instead of jailing him, King Koopa 
kidnapped his fiancée Patricia Seavings (Princess as she was called). Mario 
called a meeting with the Shrooms and decided it was time for a second Civil 
War. But this time he had to do it alone. With only the help of Patricia's 
brother, Luigi. And this is where our story begins.

yup, that's it...quite interesting, eh?

One day the kingdom of the peaceful mushroom people was invaded by the 
Koopa, a tribe of turtles famous for their black magic. The quiet, 
peace-loving Mushroom People were turned into mere stones, brick and even 
field horse-hair plantsm and the Mushroom Kingdom fell into ruin.
The only one who can undo the magic spell on the Mushroom People and return 
them to their normal selves is the Princess Toadstool, the daughter of the 
Mushroom King. Unfortunately, she is presently in the hands of the great 
Koopa turtle king.
Mario, the hero of the story (maybe) hears about the Mushroom People’s 
plight and sets out on a quest to free the Mushroom Princess from the evil 
Koopa and restore the fallen kingdom of the Mushroom People.
You are Mario! It’s up to you to save the Mushroom People from the black 
magic of the Koopa!

Mario’s Friends
If you come across mushrooms who have been turned into bricks or made 
invisible, they will reward you by giving you a power boost. With each boost 
Mario changes into a different, more powerful Marion, as shown below.

Secret Tricks

(shell) Bulldozer attack
* Kick one of the (shell) and then run right behind it (use the B button) 
and your path will be cleared for you as your enemies are sent flying.
*Just look out for ricochets. If the (shell) runs into a (pipe), your
  attack will backfire and you'd better move fast to keep from getting
  swept off yourself.
*If you want to get a lot of points, be sure not to leave any enemies alive 
behind you, since the more enemies you kill the more new ones appear.

Chapter 5          WALKTHROUGH (World 1:1 through 8:4)

      Well, here it is.  Most of these levels you will need no help with.  
Certainly you will need no help with the first level, but it demonstrates 
some basics of the game.

*World 1:

Level 1 =
      Wow, what a difficult level.  Well, if you haven't played before at 
all, it might be a bit difficult.  Ok, in the first ? block there is a coin, 
but in the second is a mushroom.  Bounce on the goomba to kill him.  Ok, 
Jump over the first three pipes, wither avoiding or stomping on the goombas. 
  The fourth pipe is a warp to the near end of the level.  If you take it 
right away, scroll down to the *.  However, you can get an extra life and 
still take it or you can continue playing normally.  Right after the pipe is 
a hidden block above the left-most side of a small hill in the bg graphics.  
Jump and out comes the 1-up.  If you do it without moving too much to the 
right, you can still take the pipe.  Otherwise, continue.
      All right, under the second block coming up next is a Flower if you 
are super Mario, and a mushroom if not.  Get it, without getting hit by 
goombas.  Under the next ? is 11 coins.  Then is a group of 2 boxes, the 
second one contains a star.  After the star is a pyramid of ? boxes.  The 
top one contains a flower, the three bottom contain coins.
      Next is just a series of stars and holes.  Jump over the holes to get 
      Here is just a row of boxes, the ? one contains a coin.  To get 5000 
on the flag step all the way to the right of the top part of the stairs as 
far as you can without falling off.  Now, hold down B and press right until 
you get to the very end of the platform and push and hold Jump.

Level 2 =
      This is the first underground level you go to.  The first ? block is a 
Power Up.  The first regular box you see contains 9 coins.  Now comes a 
thing that looks like a badly written W.  at the very end of the W the top 
box contains a star.  After the row of coins on some boxes, there is a thing 
hanging down that looks like a backwards J.  The top block on the right part 
of the backwards J is a Power Up.
      Coming up is a rectangle with some coins on top.  Get on the platform 
before it and run and jump to get on it.  Directly above the last coin is a 
1-up.  Break the box in front of it to make it drop down so you can get to 
it.  The first pipe is a warp that leads to the third pipe.
      The last in the row of blocks under the red turtle contains a Power 
Up.  ride the elevator to the top and run to the right to access the level 
jump.  One pipe goes to level 2, one to 3, and one to level 4.

Level 3 =
      Tree type place.  You come to an elevator and a ? block very early 
that contains a Power Up.  The last elevator above a red turtle leads to the 
stairs going up to the flag.

Level 4 =
      Your first castle.  Make sure if you try to get the ? block that you 
avoid the fire thing.  It contains either a mushroom or a fire flower.  The 
first ditch you come to has a hidden coin block 4 block spaces from the end. 
  Just jump to get it.
      When you get to King Koopa, either jump on the little ride thingy at 
the top or run under him when he jumps.  Don't let him touch you.  If you 
have fire Mario you can shoot him about 5 times and he'll die.  Otherwise, 
get the axe hammer thing at the end of the bridge and kill him.  Now Toad 
will tell you that the princess is in another castle, what a waist of your 
time.  Oh Well, keep going.

*World 2:

Level 1 =
      In the middle of the first three boxes you come to is a Power Up.  
Some ways ahead is two rows of ? boxes.  The first ? box on the bottom row 
is a Power Up.  There are two more rows of ? blocks, only horizontal instead 
of on top of each other.  Above the two rows is 5 normal blocks.  The middle 
one contains a vine that leads to a cloud secret.  If you don't take the 
cloud warp, there is a pipe warp right after where the vine is.  The first 
box after the pipe warp is a Power Up.  After the following pipe and the 
ditch, you have to jump on a springboard to get to the platform before the 

Level 2 =
      The first underwater level.  Avoid the fish (easy) and avoid the squid 
that can control their own movement.  When the ground disappears, be careful 
because you can get sucked down.

Level 3 =
      Keep running as much as you can (after a while you can tell if a fish 
is gonna hit you.)  There is a ? box with a Power Up in it.

Level 4 =
      The ? box has a Power Up of course.  When you have a chance to either 
take the top route or the bottom route, take the bottom.  There are less 
flame thingies.  When you get to the Koopa, break the boxes with super Mario 
to take the elevator platform over his head.

*World 3:

Level 1 =
      Dark World!!!!  The third ? block contains a power up.  The second 
pipe is a warp.  After the warp is a star.  You should be able to use the 
star power to kill the hammer bros. and then get the Power Up in the second 
box above them.  The first box in the second row of boxes after the 
springboard has a vine that leads to a cloud warp.  If you don't take the 
vine, a box after the vine contains a power  up.  Before the end is a last 
row of boxes.  the second box contains coins.

Level 2 =
      The first ? box contains a Power Up.  Above one turtle that is trapped 
between some bricks is two boxes.  The bottom box contains some coins, the 
top contains a star.

Level 3 =
      There are two elevators right at the start of the level.  The first ? 
is a Power Up.  Watch out for dropping elevators and the pairs of elevators 
that make each other rise and fall.

NOTE: In this level, you can use the 'Jump Over the Flag Pole' cheat in the 
ceats and codes section.

Level 4 =
      Watch out for the flames that jump up from the pits at the beginning.  
The second ? contains a Power Up.

*World 4:

Level 1 =
      Arghhh...a Lakitu level.  It is very useful to have Fire Mario in this 
level.  The first ? has a Power Up.  If you warped in level 1-2, there is a 
hidden 1-up block on top of the row of four ? boxes. It won't be there if 
you didn't level jump.  The third pipe coming up is a warp.  There is a coin 
box right next to the flag.

Level 2 =
      This is an underground level.  The first box under the little part 
with the coins has a Power Up in it.  There is some hidden coins near the 
end of the hallway with three goombas 2 blocks up from where the last goomba 
is when you first see him (5 boxes from the end).  Now there are two groups 
of two ? boxes and one group of three.  The middle one in the group of three 
is a power up.  Across the ditch there are three boxes just sitting there.  
Jump directly under the second to the right and last to the right.  Jump 
onto the new block stairs so that you can hit the first normal block from 
the right.  This leads to a group of sick mushrooms with a warp to either 6, 
7, or 8.  If you don't go, there is a warp pipe right after the high pipe.  
The first box before the strip of boxes with coins on top of them is a power 

Level 3 =
      The sick mushrooms level (notice that all the giant mushrooms have 
chicken pox?).  Anyway.... The ? box has a power up.  Watch out for those 
pulling elevators.  The last elevator leads to the flag instead of stairs.  
THERE ARE NO STAIRS!!!  You gotta jump from the elevator.

Level 4 =
      This is the first castle that has somewhat of a maze.  You have to 
take this route:
      The first time you can choose between a high route and a low route, 
take the top.  Run until you reach another place where you can choose.  Jump 
down to the bottom and it will lead you to Koopa.

*World 5:

Level 1 =
      At one point, after the second paratroopa, there are three blocks.  
The middle one contains a starman.  This level has the first bullet bills in 
it.  Try to either jump on them or crouch under them if you can.  There is a 
pipe in the air that warps near the end of the level.

Level 2 =
      At the beginning, the last of the top row of blocks has a power up.  
The first pipe goes to a swimming warp.  Watch out for the lowering 
elevators while swimming, they push you into sink holes.  The last block on 
top of the two rows after the warp has a starman.  Then there are two blocks 
that only regular small Mario can reach.  The first contains coins, the 
second a Power Up (mushroom for small Mario).

Level 3 =
      Just exactly like World 1 - Level 3, the tree level.  There are more 
enemies and smaller elevators, and bullet bills are being launched at you 
the whole level.

Level 4 =
      At the beginning, there is an extra long fire thing near the ? block 
with the Power Up in it.  Take the bottom route to reach Roy Koopa, the 
fifth Koopa.

*World 6:

Level 1 =
      Lukitu level! This is another dark level.  The first normal block 
contains a power up.  the third ? block also contains a power up.

Level 2 =
      Another dark level.  The first pipe is a warp.  the second pipe after 
the warp is a water warp.  If you don't take the water warp, there are two 
rows of blocks overhead.  The last block of the second row is a warp vine 
that leads to a cloud ride.

Level 3 =
      This level is all gray for some strange reason.  the first ? box is a 
power up.  About half way through this level, Bullet Bills start launching 
at you.

Level 4 =
      Same exact as the first castle, except for the Koopa at the end is 
using hammers.  It is really good to have Fiery Mario at this Koopa.

*World 7:

Level 1 =
      First normal block holds a Power Up.  There are a lot of Bullet Bills 
in this level.  There is a block with a power up at the very top of the 
springboard.  It is kinda hard to reach if you get a flower, and if you get 
a mushroom, chances are you will miss it.

Level 2 =
      A water level.  A LOT OF SQUIDS!!!!!

Level 3 =
      Another flying fish level, exact same lay out as level 2 -3.  However, 
there are more fish, and Koopa Troopas and Koopa Paratroopas are in your 
way.  There is still a power up in the middle that you want for the 
following castle.

Level 4 =
      Hmmm...the last castle before the big Bowser Koopa castle.  This is 
the maze palace of Ludwig Van Koopa.  For the first three parts, go Bottom, 
Middle, Top.  Then you will come to two big ditches of lava on the bottom, 
and a fire thing at the top.  This one changes I think, but what I did was 
went on top, avoiding the fire thing, and then stayed on top, jumping the 
ditches.  This led me to Ludwig Van Koopa.

*World 8:

Level 1 =
      If you used a Level Warp to get here from level 4, there's a hidden 
1-up above a Buzzy Beetle that's trapped between two pipes.  There is a pipe 
warp in a pipe before three Goombas.  There is also a trapped Koopa 
Paratroopa with a row of blocks above it.  In the middle of where it is 
trapped is a hidden box.  If you jump on the box, you can hit the regular 
box above it that contains some coins.  After the next series of short 
ditches is a row of blocks, the third is a starman.

Level 2 =
      There is a 1-up in the box above the springboard.  Between the first 
set of bullet bills, there is two blocks.  The second one is a Power Up.  
The first pipe after the difficult jump (where you're on a pipe and you have 
to run just right to not fall down a pit) is a warp.

Level 3 =
      The first set of hammer bros. are on two rows of blocks.  The second 
to last block on the top row is a power up.  Then the next set of hammer 
bros. is also on two rows of blocks.  For that set, the second to first 
block on top is a power up.

Level 4 =
      Well, here it is...the giant maze castle...the home of Bowser Koopa.  
Actually, I figured this level out quicker than the World 7 castle (Ludwig 
Van Koopa's castle).
      Ok, there’s a ditch with a little elevator that moves across some ways 
into the level, right after it, enter the first pipe.  Then, there’s a pipe 
in the air by some Koopa Paratroopas.  There’s a hidden block near the left 
of it that will help you get into it.  After that pipe, you will have to 
jump over a pit with lava in it.  Right after it, jump into the pipe.  This 
takes you to a swimming level with spinning fire rods and 3 squidies.  If 
you have fiery Mario, you can kill the coming up Hammer Brother, otherwise 
try to run under it.  Now, avoid the Podobo to get to Bowser Koopa.  It is 
very easy to kill Bowser with fireballs.  It is hard to get on top of him, 
and he has hammers, so it’s hazardous to try to go under him.  Do what you 

      Well, I guess since you’ve reached the end, the only thing you can do 
is….do it again!  The second quest has more baddies, a lot more bullet 
bills, and all the baddies other than Koopa Troopas turn into Buzzy Beetles. 
  Have fun!

Chapter 6          BAD GUYS LIST

      There is a list of some of the bad guys in the instruction book that 
comes with the game.  Other baddies and more detail can be found in this 
list, along with tips when encountering them.

Bloober - Chases after Mario in the water.  He's that annoying squid guy.  
You gotta use fireballs.  Worth 200 PTS.

Bowser, King of the Koopa - the sorcerer lizard dude at the end of all the 
palaces.  You only get points if you shoot him with fireballs.  All the 
Koopas are worth 5000 PTS.  Here are their names:

      World 1            Larry Koopa
      World 2            Morton Koopa Jr.
      World 3            Wendy O. Koopa
      World 4            Iggy Koopa
      World 5            Roy Koopa
      World 6            Lemmy Koopa
      World 7            Ludwig Van Koopa
      World 8            Bowser Koopa

Bullet Bill - Shoots out of the canons.  You can only jump on him.  Worth 
200 PTS.

Buzzy Beetle - Not effected by fireballs.  Jumping on him has the same 
effect as on a Koopa Troopa.  Worth 100 PTS.

Cheep-cheep - The fish that are in the water and are jumping around on some 
stages.  The green ones are slow, the red ones are fast and can jump.  You 
can jump on them out of the water, but can only use fireballs while she's 
still in the water.  Worth 200 PTS.

Hammer Brothers - Twin-Brother turtles that toss hammers at Mario.  Worth 
1000 PTS.

Koopa Paratroopa  (green) - A Koopa that wings all around aimlessly and 
comes at you all of a sudden stomp on him and he loses his wings.  Worth 400 

Koopa Paratroopa  (red) - This turtle is under control, unlike the green 
paratroopas.  Stomp on him to get rid of his wings.  Worth 400 PTS.

Koopa Troopa (green) - Soldier of the Turtle Empire, his orders are to find 
and destroy Mario.  Jump on him and he goes in his shell.  You can launch 
his shell at other baddies or let it sit.  If you let it sit he will come 
back out after a while.  Worth 100 PTS.

Koopa Troop (red) - Just like a green one, only he wont jump off a cliff.  
He's faster, too.  Worth 100 PTS.

Lakitu - Little turtle in a cloud that launches spiny eggs at you that hatch 
into Spinys.  Worth 200 PTS.

Little Goomba - A mushroom that betrayed the Mushroom Kingdom.  All you have 
to do is stomp on his head to kill him.  He can also be shot with fireballs 
or killed with a turtle shell.  Worth 100 PTS.

Pirana plants - Man-eating plants that live in flower pot (that look exactly 
like pipes).  You gotta shoot fireballs at them.  Worth 200 PTS.

Podoboo - Those annoying fireballs that jump out of the lava in Palaces.

Spiny - Lakitu's pet.  You can only kill him with a shell or fireballs.  
Worth 200 PTS.

Spiny's Egg - Eggs of the turtle Spiny, pet of Lakitu.  You have to shoot 
them, too.  Worth 200 PTS.

Chapter 7          ITEMS LIST

      Here is an okay list of items from Super Mario Bros.  It might not be 
complete, so e-mail me if it isn't.

? Box - Can contain coins, 1-ups, or Power ups.

1-up mushroom - when you get one of these you get an extra life.

Box - a box of bricks.  These often contain coins.  You get 50 PTS. for 
breaking them.  They can also contain 1-ups.

Coin - If you get 100 of these, you get an extra life and 100 PTS.

Fire Flower - Turns Super Mario into Fiery Marion or Mario into Super Mario.

Flag - The thingy at the end of each level that isn't a castle, you get 
anywhere from 5,000 to 800 PTS. for bringing it down.

Flower Pot - the Pirana Plants live in these.  When you kill the plant, the 
flower pot turns into a pipe.

Magic Mushroom - Turns Mario into Super Mario.

Pipe - Duh, a pipe...the little green thing that you can often go down or up 
to warp, level jump, and, uh, other stuff.

Starman - A star that turns you into Invincible Mario, where you can kill 
anything.  Wow!

Chapter 8          THE MINUS WORLD

      Here is the most popular secret in the game, the Minus World.  What it 
is, is a level where you are swimming, and the level counter at top says "  
- 1".  There is no way to win, because if you go through the pipe at the 
end, you just start over at the beginning.  This happens until you die or 
your time runs out.

      Now for how to do it.  Ok, you access the Minus World from 1 - 2 
(World 1 - Level 2), the first underground level.  You will have to have 
Super Mario or Fire Mario.  Go all the way to the end, where the pipe to go 
up to the flag is.  Don't go up the pipe.  Don't go to the secret level warp 
is, either.  What you have to do is break about five blocks above the pipe.  
Don't break the one nearest the pipe wall.  Break all the ones you can away 
from the wall.  With only one block on the wall, get the farthest on the 
edge of the pipe bottom you can without falling off.  You have to hit the 
last block with the back of Mario's head.  The best way to do it, is after 
you get as far as you can left on the pipe, squat down and jump, then hold 
right.  It's kind of complicated to write instructions, but when you do it 
it will become easy.  Squat, then hold down while you jump, and after you've 
jumped, hold right also.  Usually it takes a while to get it right.  I got 
to the minus world the first time I tried, but it took me about 200 on the 
timer to get the jumping right.

      Ok, if you jump right, you will get sucked into the wall.  Now you 
have to make Mario walk right until he drops into the Level Jump area.  Go 
down the first pipe (the one that would go to level 4) you see.  Now you are 
in the Minus World. Have fun!

NOTE: If you use this FAQ for the Super Mario All-Stars version of this game 
for SNES, the Minus World has been removed.

Chapter 9          CHEATS, GAME GENIE CODES

      Here are various cheats that I have found or have heard from other 
people. If something doesn't work for you, or you know something else, 
e-mail me at sensei_otaku@hotmail.com ... thanks.  Most of the Game Genie 
codes were trained by EdTheMoogle (he made them).

      After you get a game over, you can continue at the first level of the 
world you were on last.  When the Game Select screen appears (where you 
select 1 or 2 players), hold down A and press start.

***Fire Power when small:
      At the end of the fourth level of any world (except eight), you need 
to be either super or fiery Mario.  Ok, when you get to the Koopa, you have 
to touch the axe and Koopa at the same time.  If you do it right, you flash 
as if you were going to shrink, but you will stay super or fiery Mario.
      Get a mushroom in the next level and it will make you shrink.  Now, 
when you get a power up block it will be a flower.  When you get the flower 
you will stay small, so you can reach small spaces but have fire balls.  
Pretty kewl.

***Jump Over the Flag Pole:
      This one was sent to me by way of e-mail by Dag Cato. This is what his 
e-mail says:

Hello Mr MOOrstar,
My name is Dag Cato and I've just read your super mario-faq (version 1.0) on 
gamefaq (as well as some other's super mario-faqs). I would like to begin to 
thank you for your well written faq and the extensive content that helped me 
find the last items in the game. But one thing struck me in your (and the 
other's) faqs: there isn't a word about jumping over the flagpole-trick in 
world 3-3! If you don't know what I'm talking about I will explain. In 3-3 
there isn't the normal pyramid structure to finish off the level from, but 
instead a sort of balance elevator. If your timing is perfect (jump from the 
lower elevator platform, with speed, to the higher and then jump as late as 
possible) you will end up by jumping over the flagpole! The result isn't 
that great though, either you just run to the right until time ends (sort of 
the infinite -1-world trick) or you can jump on the flagpole from behind 
(which only gives you the ordinary points). In my opinion, it's kind of cool 
anyway and, at least I thougt, a classic feature in this classic game. If 
this trick interests you, but you're unable pull it off (it will take some 
practice and I don't really know how to do it, but try and you'll eventually 
make it), mail me and I'll send you some screenshots/saved files from 
Nesticle (the NES-emulator).
Dag Cato

***Infinite Lives:
      Not an embedded cheat, but a useful tid bit.  On 3 - 3, near the flag, 
there are two turtles coming down the stairs.  Jump on the second one and 
have it launch at the first one.  It will keep hitting it.  Eventually you 
will get extra men instead of points.

      Ok, now here are the Game Genie Codes.  This list is rather long.  It 
starts with actual game play codes and ends with .

come with version 3.
