    Well, since the original thread for the game is so messy to look through.
    I thought we could have a compiled list of the "secrets" we know of so far.

    Here are some of which I know of and feel free to share any others if you have.
    If you wish to discover them for yourself, then it's your choice.

    SECRETS
    Q: How to get to Rainbow world?
    [​IMG]

    Q: How to get to world 4 and 7? ('Secret' worlds)
    Beat the last boss in the last castle of world 2 or 5 as mini mario (use the stomp technique, jump and press down) or have a mini mushroom to use after you beat the boss

    WORLD 1 SECRETS
    Q: How to get to the first cannon in world 1?
    to get to the cannon MAKE SURE YOU HAVE THE SHELL SUIT, go to the middle castle, go to the part where the pipe shoots you up through the outlined coins, get to the ledge.

    then slide down the wall and go in the press up door. if you go a little up and further right past the star coin you go in a warp pipe.

    Q: How to find the last coin in the first castle?
    On the last tight rope (it may not be the last but it's one of them towards the end of the level) before u get to the boss door....you have to use it to bounce really high and there will be a pipe on the ceiling. Enter it

    WORLD 3 SECRETS
    Q: How do you get to the Cannon in world 3?
    At the ghost house jump on the last switch, go up the stairs (that were created by the switch) but don't jump in the hole to the left where a door apppears. Instead jump over the hole, go down the stairs to the left. Another door should appear next to the other one beneath the stairs. Make sure you get their before that switch-music stops.

    OTHER STUFF
    Q: Can you play as Luigi?
    Yes you can, Hold L+R and press A on a save file.

    Q: Different endings?
    Maybe, so far the only different ending is depending on what levels / how many levels you have played through. If you have played through alot, then you will hear the famous 'super mario bros' song in the end of the credits.

    Q: Can you only save after beating a mini castle / castle?
    In the first run yes, after you beat the game once you can save whenever.
    You can also save by paying the coin toll gates.

    Q: How do you get fireworks when you clear a level?
    To get the classic Level Clear tune when clearing a level and to see fireworks, you need to touch the flag pole when the last 2 digits of the timer match (eg. 122, 233, 344 etc.) smile.gif

    Also, the number of fireworks you'll see will be the same as the number that you matched on the timer.

    And that's all I got atm, info from myself and from other sources from the mario thread.

    You can also save by buying your way through one of the star gate things. They all let you save after. They're very useful as savepoints really.

    info on mini mario

    You have to stomp with mini mario ...jump over the boss and press down to stomp when directly over bosses head .. took me while to realise that.

    You can also save if you pay 5 star coins to get through a gate/sign.

    So I need the blue Shell suite. But where can I find it? I've been wandering through a few levels without finding one [​IMG]

    Go to the maps with those random flying '?' blocks over them. Enter and check what item it is, if it isn't the blue shell then leave the map and repeat the same thing. When you do get the shell then complete the level without getting hit (obviously ;P) then go to the minicastle.

    Or you can enter one of those mushroom houses and hope you get the shell from there instead.

    Two questions:

    1. How do I get to the rainbow world mentioned in the first spolier above (it is not showing up in my browser when I hit show, it is blank)?
    2. How do I get to the last mushroom house in World 2?

    Thanks.

    After beating the game, you can buy diffrent "styles" for the touch-screen for 20 star coins each. (These are really awesome!)

    EDIT: Oh, and for the How to find the last coin in the first castle? question. It IS the last wire.
