stuns them. To get rid of them for good you then have to kick them. Freezies
and fireballs come at you with all kinds of attacks.
* Only Mario appears in the 1 player game. Both Mario and Luigi appear in the
2 player game.
Team Play: Here you cooperate with each other.
One player punches the enemy down, and the other finishes him off
by kicking him. The game proceeds quickly and you can expect a
high score. This is the perfect game for players that are good at

How do you play?
The game involves punching the bad guys that fly out of the pipes and then
kicking them. When the bad guys are punched, they fall over backwards and
remain stunned for a certain period of time. After that, however, they get up
(if you let them) and renew their attack even faster because they are mad at
* Down after 1 punch.
* Irked after the first punch, it goes down after the second.
* Punch it just as it lands. Down after 1 punch.
Note: A downed character gets up if punched from below. If the character gets
up on its own it moves even faster than before. The last remaining
character also moves extra fast.
Punching from behind
* Knocks the character down to a lower level.
Punching from below
* Repeat-punching keeps the character from advancing.
Punching from ahead
* The turtle is temporarily thrown back.
* Punch the POW and the characters on all the floors are knocked over. They
will get up eventually, so be careful. Things like fire balls disappear.
Note: The POW disappears after it is hit 3 times.
* The freezies attempt to freeze the floors. Once frozen, Mario (and Luigi)
will slip and can't stop very easily. Punch the freezies early to break
* Mario (and Luigi) can walk through the left edge of the screen to reappear
onthe right, and vice versa.
* Extinguishing fireballs
Punch the fireballs when they hit the floor and get high scores. Beware!
Revived red fireballs are very dangerous!
* Succesive kicking
You get special high scores for kicking down several bad guys in a row.
* Grabbing the coins
Earn points by grabbing the coins that come out of the pipe whne a character
is kicked down!
* Test your skill on the bonus round

score bonus on top o the regular coin points!

Beware! . . . . . . . . . . . Mario (or Luigi) disappears if he bumps into
or is hit by a bad buy (including fireballs and
freezies). When all Marios (or Luigis) are used
up, the game ends.

in the lower left corner of the screen. You can
