Any tips for getting past the boss in the fortress in world 2? I am stuck at it. I am also stuck at the castle in world 5.

Games Guru: The boss you’re fighting is Roy Koopa. If he lands and you’re on the ground, he’ll paralyze you. As he lands, jump onto his head to avoid his attack. Do this two more times. I don’t know where you’re stuck in the castle.

Do you have any tips for the new multiplayer Mario Bros. game?

Games Guru: Here are some tips:

– When riding Yoshi, you can eat projectiles thrown by enemies. Spit them out to give them a taste of their own medicine!

– You can carry other players to help them get through challenging areas of the game.

– If four players are playing at the same time, jump together and simultaneously press down on the + Control Pad to perform a Ground Pound. It creates a huge tremor that eliminates all land-based enemies.

– When flying with the Propeller Suit, shake the Wiimote as you fall to increase the range of your horizontal descent.

– Use frozen enemies as platforms to gain access to hard-to-reach areas. Make sure you jump off before they melt!

– Players riding Yoshi can jump higher and longer if they continue to hold the “2” button after leaving the ground.

– Jump on other players’ heads to reach areas you wouldn’t be able to access on your own.

        WHY IS NO ONE EVER SPESIFIC?!?! Aw well. I like helping others. Anyway, the pillars will rise up and down. After you have made one of his hit points give, he’ll be spinning like like a rotissary chicken in his shell! Stay on the HIGH pillars to stay safe. The magic shots fired can be drove away with a ice ball. Do the above procedjure, and… WELCOME TO WORLD 2!!!

    • jump on his head.

      You’re on world 8 mario rookie?! i got it 1 month ago and i only am on world 2 level 3!!!

      • Scribblenaut // November 14, 2010 at 6:47 pm //

        Okay then, Allow me, Scribblenaut, to assist you. Getting a starman beforehand can really help. Just dash through the level at star speed! Still, look out for BOTTOMLESS PITS!!! Starman will run out though, trek carefully, but quickly because of time restrictions. Not even Mario is immortal, you know. BUT, at the end stairs, there is a infinite 1-up trick I will tell. Wait on steps below koopa. When he is 2 steps above you, JUMP! Just watch and wait, while Mario gets INFINITE 1-UPS!!!

    • here’s a tip. Try to ( after you pass bowser throwing fireballs) to hit the next ? block to get a propeller mushroom. Then you fly across the rest of the level! Good luck!

  19. I have the Prima Guide. So if you ever need help just ask me!

  20. To Newsupermariobrotherswiigeek have an ice flower you then can freeze the bomb bombs and throw them off the platform

  21. i got shot to world 8 when i was on world 5!!!!!!!!!!! i got it on ghost house i think

  22. on world2 go to the right after you beat world one.use the regular mushroom and in it you will see a block over some quicksand. go in the quicksand and hit the block. an ice flower will come out.
