New Super Mario Bros. Tips

Easy lives and a mega mushroom in inventory without house
For the mega mush room got to world 1-2 and gow down the pipe about halfway through. In the 2nd room where you get the mega mushroom, hit it from underneath, jump on the box (with out getting it) jump above it and slide down. The mushroom should be traveling left now. wait until it is under the pipe leading out and get it. Should go to your item box <img src="" border=0 vspace=2 alt="" /> Also for the lives got to 4-1 and then make sure you get the mushroom. Then while holding down dash press and hold down jump as well and land on the shell, then the bug thing and continue on this until you get to the bit with the goombas and the shell. This bit is quite difficult, but the trick is to land on the goomba then the top of the shell very quickly. If done correctly you should be able to jump to the next bug thing and continue the life-strak all the way up to the blue dinosaur <img src="" border=0 vspace=2 alt="" />
