Super Mario Bros

Are there any codes for the game I can use on DS?

Games Guru: Pressing L R L R X X Y Y will let you go backwards — a nice bonus for a side-scrolling game, but this only works once you have completed the game.

    In the ice world in New Super Mario Bros,the underground level (the one before the tower catsle) holds a secret.In one of the tubes with a Pihrana Plant,jump into it, and there will be a red flag.Pull it down,and a path to a tube will open,go to it and press A, and you will be telaported past the 1st castle!

  8. my cousin has it we are stuck in world 8 past the bridge!

    in the NES version there’s a warp zone in some levels. in level 1.1 go down the first tube at the place where you have to jump from one tube to another, then go through that place and go through a pipe that takes you up & then keep on going untill you get to a place & go down & there will be 3 pipes. the level it goes to will be above the pipe.Also, if you jump on the flag when the last number is 6 there will be 6 fireworks when you go into the castle.

  17. To “steve386”, you can hold the shoulder buttons to be Luigi. This only works on NSMB. For the original, I think you have to be player 2 on 2-player…I think.

  18. This is a awesome game 4 D.S. I would also recommend Madden 2009.

    D.S.’s ROCK 🙂

  20. NSMB, someone DOES care about the original! I am a fan of the newer 1s and the classics:-)

    in the NES version, there is a -1 level. Bouncy-duck-turn-slide-jump and youre there.

    its an inescapable swimming level.Theres a -2 level if you grab the correct sequence

    of coins,too.

    Yeah, before you select a file, hold on L and R to be Luigi. You’ll know if it works if you hear his voice, which is different than Mario’s.

  45. it’s L,R,A at the same for luigi.

  46. oops.. sorry, I messed up. that’s for new super mario bros

  47. Actually, it’s L and R at the same time.

  48. Yes!

    When you enter the “Mario Game” press A,B,X,Y and you can play as Luigi.

    (Note: It will take a few tries

  49. i love this game
