The Cheat of the Centuary

99 Lives
In world 5-3 come up to the surface and throw the shell on the ground there, it will keep bouncing off of the walls back and forth. Jump and land on the shell and wait for the birds to drop the bombs. The shell will kill the bombs, and after you get a certain amount you start getting 1-UPS, you can do this forever until you have 99.

Instant Reset
To trigger the game's built-in soft reset and restart the game without using the power switch, simply hit the following buttons at the same time: Select + Start + A + B.

Level Warps
Warp to World 4: In level 1-3 go to the area just before the brick background. Pick up the plants until you get a bottle. Then go past the brick background until you find a pot and throw the bottle on it. Go through the door and down the pot into World 4.
Warp to World 5: To warp to level 5, first get to level 3-1. When you enter the first door, fall all the way down. You have to be in the middle as you fall. When you stop, you will find a platform with a door. Enter the door, then look for the potion in the grass. Pick it up, then throw it on the ground, enter the door in cyberspace, and go into the vase and you will be at level 5.

Warp to World 6: In level 4-2 In the area with the whales find a bottle and throw it on the next pot. Enter the doorway and go down the pot into World 6.

Warp to World 7: Work your way to level 5-3. (It would be a good idea to choose Luigi for this level because of his superb jumping skills.) Go up the ladder at the beginning of the level, and then jump up onto the ledge above the ladder. As soon as you get on top of the ledge, grab the first grass on the right. It is a potion. Use the potion and go through the door. Now, while in sub-space, go down through the jar and voila! Now you're in Level 7!

Lots of Lives in 1-1
Want as many extra lives as you can be bothered to collect? On World 1-1 at the right hand end of the level, enter the upper door into the cave with the line of spiky jobbies (easiest to do this with Luigi, as you can just jump up to it without having to go the long way round). To the left of the spiky things are three plants. Pull up the right-most plant to reveal a giant turnip, and throw it at the bad guys. If you kill them all with one shot, you get an extra life. Leave the cave, re-enter it, and do it all again until you have enough lives to keep you going...

Make Birdo Bald
When you fight a green or red Birdo, jump on her head and pick up her bow and throw it away. Voila! Bald Birdo. Note: this doesn't work on all Birdos in the game.

Sleep Mode
So you're in the middle of playing Super Mario and the telephone rings... Or let's say you feel the sudden urge to check IGN for new GBA stories, but you're in the middle of a level -- what do you do? How about putting your GBA to sleep to preserve batteries? Press the Select and R buttons at the same time and the game will drop into deep sleep. To wake it up again, press Select and L.

getting through the game

Yoshi mode
Successfully complete the entire game of Super Mario Brothers 2 to unlock Yoshi mode. You do not need to collect all the red coins to unlock Yoshi mode. In Yoshi mode, you must find two Yoshi eggs hidden behind the potion doors. There are two eggs for each stage.

Bald Birdo
Get to a part in the game where you fight Birdo. Jump on her head and press B, as if you were picking up a vegetable. You will pick up her Bow. You can either throw it at her, which causes it to appear back on her head, or throw it off the edge or something so she is bald.

Extra hearts
Find a giant enemy and throw them. Do not through them off a ledge or into an enemy. A heart will pop out of them. You can do this as many times as needed if you do not kill them.

Easy coins
When you use the magic potion to get the mushrooms, do not pick up the surrounding vegetables (which are coins in the magic door) immediately. Instead, find the location in each level where there are the most vegetables that are close together. Drop the magic potion and go in the door. Pick up as many coins as possible. Repeat this once, after doing something that will make the potion reappear (such as climbing a vine, going down a pipe, or entering a door).

Extra lives
Each time the spinners start in the bonus round, the second symbol in the first slot is always a cherry. If done correctly, you can usually get an average of at least one extra life per coin.

World 1-1 quick ending
On World 4-1, get the Princess. Go up the vine, but go to the left. Run and fly to a secret door. Go through the door and use the bombs to blow up the wall. Then, jump over the top of the screen and run left. -From: bindertb@email.msn.com

World 1-2 shortcut
In World 1-2, select Luigi, get the carpet, and fly to the land. Instead of getting the key, pick up the hopping Ninja and throw it in front of the door. Then, prepare a squat jump and wait for him to jump high. If done correctly, you should jump and reach the hill above you. Then, run past the first door and enter the second one to fight the Boss.

World 1-3 warp
At the end of the outside part, there is a vase object. If you carry a red liquid in a bottle and throw it there, you will go down.

Take a potion to the last vase (past the door) and throw it. Enter the new door and then the vase to warp to World 4-1.

World 3-1 easy coins
In World 3-1, use Toad, because of his lifting power. Fall down the waterfall, onto the platform where the door is at the bottom. Enter the door and get the magic potion. Drop it anywhere where there is a continuous stream of coins. Enter this door, and get as many coins as possible. Go out the door you used to enter, then return, and repeat once.

World 3-1 warp
After you go into the first door, walk into the hole. There is a piece of land with another door located there. After you are in the door, go to the end, then start picking weeds. The red ones are placed at random but are usually near the back. If you want a lot of coins, just throw it where you found it. If you want to warp, just throw it near the vase object.

World 4-2 extra lives
There is a Giant POW in the level. Use it to kill all of the little porcupines around you. Go up the vine and go back down. Sacrifice your energy to get to the POW and kill them again. Go back up and get the Heart by holding Down for a few seconds and jumping. Repeat the process until you get as many lives as desired.

World 4-2 warp
Take a potion in the second part of the stage, to the only vase. Enter the door and then the vase to warp to World 6-1.

World 4-3 find fry guy
Use the Princess in World 4-3. A castle will appear after crossing the lake. Do not enter the castle. Instead, fly further across the lake to find another part of the castle.

World 5-3 warp
After entering the first door, use Luigi to reach the vase at the top. There is also a potion located there. Enter the new door and then the vase to warp to World 7-1.

World 6-3 shortcut
In World 6-3, climb the vine or go through the door to get to the next area. Then, instead of going right through the world, go left into the quicksand while holding Left. As soon as you see your character's head disappear. Start jumping to the left. Keep going until you reach a door. Go through the door. You should then be on a cloud. Keep jumping from cloud to cloud until you see the door, then enter it.

In-game reset
While playing a game, press Select + Start + A + B.

Suspend game
While playing a game, press Select + R to suspend the game without turning it off. Press Select + L to resume.

Shortcut: World 6-3

After ascending the ladder at the beginning of world 6-3, take a left, instead of going right. You will face a wall, surrounded by quick sand. Sink underneath the quick sand, keeping left held.

As soon as the character jerks left, keep on tapping A and left. You will be able to walk under the wall in the quick sand.

Enter the door at the end to skip to the end boss.

Warp: World 1-3 to World 4-1

Follow the level until you reach a wood block, making up a bridge. The plant to the left of it is a potion. Pick it up and proceed to the end of screen one, walking past the door, instead of entering it.

Throw the potion near the vase (to the right of the door) and enter subspace. Jump up and press down on the vase whilst in subspace. You will be teleported to world 4-1

Yoshi Mode

To unlock Yoshi Mode, successfully complete the entire Super Mario Bros. 2 to unlock it. You don't have to collect all the red coins to unlock Yoshi mode. In Yoshi Mode, there are two hidden eggs behind the potion doors in every level. Yoshi Mode is just for fun and won't unlock anything.

Yoshi's Challenge

After completing the game once through, you have the option to replay the game, searching for two Yoshi eggs in each level. Sounds simple, however the loss of the life means that you lose all currently collected eggs on that level.

It is hard, but is worth it!
