    A simple cheat was discovered by a redditor 30 years after the game was released! The cheat lets you continue where you lost your life by pressing a + start on the main screen.

    Hell if I did. :huh:

    The only cheat I knew back in the day was the warp zone.

    I tried the cheat myself, and it works. However, it sends you back to the beginning of the world in which you died, meaning if you died in 2-3 and use the code, you'll start at 2-1.

    Still far more handy than having to start all the way at 1-1 again.

    Also after you beat the game, you can press the B button on the start screen to select which level you want to start on.

    Again, my dad knew this in 1987 :P

    Just wondering, how come everyone on reddit has never heard of it before? Are they dumb or something? An entire community never hearing of a secret that's been out for like 25 years...

    That was printed in nintendo fun club magazine.in about 86. Pre nintendo power. I think issue 3. Mario can do a single backstroke if you change directions quick while swimming. I read that in the eighties.

    Very cool. But that redditor should shut up since I see many people already knew it :D
