Super Mario 64 Tips

Easy Extra Lives
Once you've unlocked the Vanish Cap Switch Course, go down the slope and collect as many lives as possible. If you miss one, make Mario crawl and you can easily climb up the wall again. After you've collected all of the lives on the slope, fall off the edge. You won't lose and life and you will end up in a little pool of water right next to the entrance to the course. Enter the course and repeat as many times as you want.
