New Super Mario Bros. Wii

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.

  9. This is so easy i beat it in one month with ALL the star coins

  10. I just saw this forrum so this is a late answer to the poll and i say c.

  11. I just beat every level.

    The easiest W9 level is the tropical one (I think that’s 9-2,) and the toughest is 9-7, the icy forest: I only got through that using a Star, and that was still hard!

    9-8 isn’t that tough if you have a Propeller Suit and pay attention to the coin formations!

    Also in that level, there are coin formations shaped like Waluigi’s logo. Could this be a clue of some sort? I hope so! 🙂

    i have every W 9 level other than 9-5.

  14. i got to world 8

  15. Anybody got tips for World 9. We’ve only got all of World 1’s star coins.

  16. i beat the last boss by my self

  17. I forgot one thing: it’s a little easier for you to play with two people; that way when you die, there’s someone still playing. And, when in multiplayer mode, when you run out of lives, press 1 or 2. There’s a clapping sound or a honk!

  18. Anybody need help?? I beat the game, it was actually really easy once you get used to it (Saving Toad is a pain, though.)

  19. I’ve got every world 9 level except for W9-6 and W9-8!

    is there a Yoshi infinite flutter jump cheat for this game

  21. I think World 9-4 is the hardest level because it is an automatic side-scroll level and because of all of the annoying bob-ombs.
