To activate this code, first pause the game. While the game is paused, press the SELECT Button 16 consecutive times. If done correctly, on the 16th press of the SELECT Button, an icon will appear on the game's status bar.
This icon can be toggled left or right to select a different number on the screen. By doing this, you can adjust a wide variety of in-level stats, including lives, hearts, coins collected in stage, and the time left in the level to the desired settings--you could maximize the amount of any of those four (lives and hearts max out @ 99, time and coins max out @ 999).
But that's not all. Before unpausing the game, move the icon over to Wario's head. By doing so, when you unpause the game, Wario's hat will change! Keep repeating this process until Wario has the hat desired.
Depending on how many coins you managed to collect in total over the course of the entire game, you can change the reward Wario receives from the Genie before the staff roll.
|Reward||Total number of coins required|
|Tree Trunk||10,072-40,007 coins|
|Log Cabin||40,008-70,007 coins|
|Entire Planet(!)||99,999+ coins|
here are some easy ways to get coins:
on some of the parsley woods levels there are these cloud things that drop lightning bolts on you. Pick up one of the little guys with the spears and let him get hit by a lightning bolt. You will get a big coin that's worth ten. WARNING: This one is kinda hard because it's hard not to get hit by the lightning bolt yourself.
once you beat rice beach go back and do level three again. It will unlock a secret level that gets you lots of coins. Make sure you take the viking hat it gives you at the start of the level (when you see the things moving underground, jump up and press down. This cow thing jumps up and you kill it. It gets you 11 or so coins per cow thingy. also there is hidden boxes you can jump to hit).
on course 5 of rice beach there are these big square things with spikes on them that move up and down. Pick up one of the little guys with the spears and throw him under the square. When the square goes down it will crush him and you will get the big coin that is worth ten.
Every time you die wario will jump up, then fall off the bottom of the screen. Before wario starts to fall, quickly turn the gameboy off than on again. it will save the level you're on but you won;t lose any lives.
