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.

      True, anonymous, and the tremor can be done with 2 people, but it might not be as strong. Also, in world 1-1, on the pipe that brings you to the 3rd star coin, you reach a coin and 3 1-up filled secret if you wait without entering the pipe.

      In the last castle at the end try not to hit the bouncy things on the bottom but instead jump on the walls. Try to stay behind him and get ready to run the other direction.

      how do you get 99 lives???? somebody please reply

      • ShrewManChew // January 24, 2013 at 7:58 am //

        If you go into peaches castle and look at the lower level videos that say infinit 1-ups ( or something like that ) and follow the video ( as much as you can ) and also create your own once you get used to it ( I created one on world 9 but that’s another story).

      • how you get 99 lives is in the second level in the #1 world you get the invincible power and kill every enemy after that over and over again.Oh and don’t forget to jump into the red hoop and collect all of the red coins.

      • Keep doing 1:1

      • anonymous // April 26, 2015 at 5:33 pm //

        there is an easier way: go to the world 4 final tower with ice flower or penguin. when there are enemies walking on the swinging gates, get on the gate, jump, freeze the enemy and then grab and flip the gate around before the frozen enemy hits the ground. infinite coins will spill out and you can get as many lives as you want. the game lags, though, so everything is in slow motion. there are only 2 places in the level where this can happen, so you may have to try multiple times.

  22. I used to have all the star coins accept on world 9 until I accidentally deleted it.

  23. I just need help to get past world 5!

  24. I finally got 5 stars in the game

  25. Why don’t you start giving tips for the super mario bros 2 the later levels

  41. the bad thing about levels in world 9 is that there are no bowser flags (midway points)

    • There’s a world 9? How do you unlock it?

      • FREDFRED52 // June 22, 2012 at 3:23 pm //

        beat the game!

      • dear ???,you have to get all star coins on a world

      • crizzle // April 4, 2013 at 9:10 am //

        to unlock the secret ninth world,you must beat worlds 1-8 and defeat Bowser jr. to unlock Bowser’s castle, Then, after you defeat Bowser, the ending of the game will show, then it will show the map screen with world 9 above worlds 1-8. to unlock world 9 boards, you need to go to 1-8 again and collect ALL STAR COINS. every time you collect all star coins it shows a screen that says you have unlocked a board in world 9.

  42. To get past world 2 last castle, jump on the guy right before he jumps back up
