• Infinite Coin Fountain

    For this glitch, you will need to be able to access World 4's Castle. You will want to enter the house with the Ice Flower or Penguin Suit power-up. Go through the level as normal until you see Koopas crawling on gates you can flip.

    At the gate, face the direction in which you intend to fire the fireball, i.e. if you intend to throw the fireball to the right, face right. From this position, jump and latch onto the gate without looking in the other direction. As the Koopa approaches, jump, freeze him with a fireball, grab back onto the gate, and make it flip. The timing is rather precise, in that you need to be sure you flip the gate before the frozen Koopa touches the ground.

    For reasons unknown, the frozen Koopa will begin spewing an absurd number of Coins after. You can use this to easily grab large numbers of lives and points. Bear in mind that the Coins will cause the game to lag, but the game shouldn't freeze since Coins normally disappear over time. If positioned properly, you could even just latch onto the gate right above the frozen Koopa and idly obtain coins just by hanging there. You will gain a life every few seconds, and can easily max out your life count before the level timer empties out!

  • Make mushroom houses appear in multiplayer

    To get a mushroom house to appear in multiplayer, you simply need to clear the level when the time has the same 2 end digits next to each other when you touch the flag pole. Examples: 544, 322, 411. Depending on the two end digits, you will make different mushroom houses appear at the start point, as you would in single player when you save a Toad, only the digits are mostly red mushroom houses. Two zeros at the end will get you nothing. When you do this, you hear the original Super Mario Bros. level clear music and see a number of fireworks depending on what the last 2 digits are. 1 firework for 11, 2 for 22, and so on.

    UnlockableHow to Unlock
    Gold Mushroom HouseTouch the flagpole with last 2 time digits as 99
    Green Mushroom HouseTouch the flagpole with last 2 time digits as 11 or 22 at the end
    Red Mushroom HouseTouch the flagpole with last 2 time digits as 33, 44, 55, 66, 77, or 88
