He dreamt of a long, long stairway leading up to a door. As soon as the door opened, he was confronted with a world he had never seen before spreading out as far as his eyes could see. When he strained his ears to listen, he heard a faint voice saying "Welcome to 'Subcon', the land of dreams. We have been cursed by Wart and we are completely under his evil spell. We have been awaiting your arrival. Please defeat Wart and return Subcon to its natural state. The curse Wart has put on you in the real world will not have any effect upon you here. Remember, Wart hates vegetables. Please help us!" At the same time this was heard, a bolt of lightning flashed before Mario's eyes. Stunned, Mario lost his footing and tumbled upside down. He awoke with a start to find himself sitting up in his bed. To clear his head, Mario talked to Luigi, Toad and Princess about the strange dream he had. They decide to go to a nearby mountain for a picnic. After arriving at the picnic area and looking at the scenery, they see a small cave nearby. When thy enter this cave, to their great surprise, there's a stairway leading up, up and up. It is exactly like the one Mario saw in his dream. They all walk together up the stairs and at the top, find a door just like the one is Mario's dream. When Mario and his friends, in fear, open the door, to their surprise, the world that he saw in his dream spreads out before them!.... ---------------------------------------------------------------------------- KNOW THE BASIC RULES OF THE GAME. * First, pick which character you will play as. Choose who you are by using the SELECT screen. Pick one of the four characters. * 7 worlds - Clear all 20 areas. Start Goal _______ _______ _______ _______________________________________ Area | 1 - 3 | 4 - 6 | 7 - 9 | 10 - 12 | 13 - 15 | 16 - 18 | 19 - 20 | World | 1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5 | 6 | 7 | --------------------------------------------------------------- This game is comprised of 20 areas in 7 worlds as shown in the diagram above. There is a little boss at the end of each area. The big boss, Wart is waiting for you at the end of the final area once you've cleared all of the other areas. KNOW WHAT EACH CHARACTER CAN DO. * Jumping power Each of the four have different jumping powers and ways of jumping. * Mario Average jumping power in almost all situations. But, the height he can jump decreases a little when he is carrying an item. * Luigi He can jump the highest and can go much farther but he jumps slowly. When he has an item, his power decreases more than Mario. * Toad He has the least jumping power. But since he has lifting power, the height he can jump and the speed he can run does not change even if he is carrying an item. * Princess Toadstool She is no. 3 in jumping power. When you hold down the A button, she can float in the air for about 1,5 sec. Her jumping power decreases quite a bit when she is carrying an item. * Running They all run at the same speed, but if they are carrying something, the order from slowest to quickest is; Princess Toadstool, Luigi, Mario, Toad. * Picking up mushroom blocks The speed at which they pick up items in order of the slowest to quickest is: Princess Toadstool, Luigi, Mario, Toad. WATCH OUT FOR GAME OVER. * Your game starts with three lives. You loose a life when your meter becomes 0. The life meter starts from the 2nd mark. When the marks are all white, you loose a life. This meter can increase to a maximum of 4 marks, If you slip up when the number of lives remaining is 0, the game will be over. * You loose a life if you fall down There are holes and waterfalls. You will loose a life if you carelessly fall into one of these. Be careful not to fall when you jump or loose your footing. Also, do not fall when up high in the sky. * You become smaller when the life meter reads 1 mark. Be careful. RETRY AND CONTINUE To begin another game from the same worldas it ended, press CONTINUE.
