Secret worlds of Super Mario Bros.

SMB - Image 1 SMB - Image 2 


Mario is probably the most charismatic and persistent videogame character ever. Heck, Nintendo wouldn’t choose him as the company’s icon for nothing. Anyway, as you might all be aware of, Super Mario Bros. was released yesterday on the Virtual Console. Now, here’s the exciting part: there’s more to the game than meets the eye!

What we are talking about here are the hidden worlds and stages in the game. Actually, this is not something new as the 80’s fans of the NES game enjoyed the same. We reckoned, however, that a lot of you might be experiencing playing Mario for the first time and so a little refresher wouldn’t hurt one bit.

To be quite frank, we are really very fond of the Negative World. This, you see, can actually be viewed as the water version of World 1. Here, everything’s submerge under water. More interestingly, at the end of Negative World is a majestic castle. Instead of walking into it, Mario actually swims inside. Anyway, here’s how to get there:

Go to World 1-2. At the pipe that leads to the flag, break two blocks so there’s one at the end touching the pipe. Now duck and jump backward toward the brick (don’t break it!). You should go through the wall and pipe into a warp zone. Jump down the first pipe you see and you will be in the Negative World (-1)!

There are other hidden treasures and hidden areas within Super Mario Bros. All you have to do is look in the right places. If you want some more heads up about these things, refer to our Read link below.
