Super Mario World

How do I find Star Road on the Island of Castle #2?

Games Guru: This is a truly classic game! You’ll use the springboard. First, though, you have to unlock the blue ! blocks (at the Forest of Illusion) by changing the empty blocks to the left of the springboard to blue ! blocks. Take the springboard on top of these and use it up to the pipe above.

Here’s another method. Once you’re caped, run across under the set of ledges where the springboard is and fly up to the top right corner. When you enter the pipe, head up and right, dodge the Chuck and his football fire and head into the goal.

I need to know how to beat the very first Ghost House, and of course any other helpful hints would be great.

Games Guru: Don’t do any big jumps or ghosts from high up will get you. At the end you will find a door, so go inside. The main ghosts are present. Make sure you face them and they will stay still. Turn your back and they’ll get you. Climb up the stairs and through the door. Move left. Whack the yellow block to get a switch to appear. Pick up the switch and move through the door once again. When you whack the block again, a vine will become visible. Climb up and enter the door on top. This is your exit. Congrats. You’ve beaten the Ghost House!

      depends. there are secret exits everywhere, leading to star road, etc. I could tell everyone the best 1-up trick ever, though. In the first level of the forest, get to the half point, and wait until the clear block goes to the feather. hit it, and it will turn into a star. keep running along, hitting every enemy, jumping up and down, until the star runs out. By then, you should have grabbed lots of 1-ups. The best you can get is 18 1-ups

      BTW, the trick works better if you are super or fire mario, but NOT cape mario.

        That’s nothing, because I’VE done a better 1-Up trick. In Forest of Illusion 1, as Cape Mario, go to the area with 3 Wigglers and repeatedly jump on them (be sure to float out often).

  25. i love it
