About To Die? Well You Won't!

If you are about to fall down a hole, Mario's bubble is about to pop, or your Super Star is running out and you are on a harmful surface, you can keep your life!

First, the level you are on must already be defeated, A.K.A you are replaying it.
If your star is running out,
You're about to fall down a hole,
or whatever, PAUSE THE GAME! Press SELECT and you will exit the level. Yeah, all that progress is GONE but you kept your life!
beware of the spinning logs hint
just after the first middle circle there are 3 spinning logs jump on the first one while its NOT spinning and then jump on the edge of the top one while it IS spinning so you go up in the air and land on the ledge there you should find lots of coins, doors and 1 ups
Raphael's Train
On level 5-8, most people cannot get 100 points because they're missing a flower and a few red coins. To find these, get to the second rotating wooden beam, and jump in the gap between the beam and solid ground. You'll find a train room. Hold Y to accelarate, and drive around the tracks to collect a flower and some red coins.

Bonus Levels
At the end of every world there are two question mark boxes. When you get a 100 on every level on that world those two levels will appear.
Extra Lives
World 1-7
For nearly unlimited lives in world 1, try this:
Grab one of those baddies that roll up in a ball.
When you get to a point where you see the middle ring, don't go to it. Instead, go to the other side of the pipe that you just went pass.
When shyguys start coming out the pipe, spit the ball out.
Grab the ball before it stops rolling. Repeat the same process over and over until you gain some men.
If you wait until the ball stops you'll have to do the process again. The same thing goes if you destroy the ball and you'll have to grab another one.
Another problem is if you're not standing on the right spot. If you're not, the ball will go over the pipe instead of bouncing back and forth between the pipe and the stuff you can destroy with your eggs or by ground pound.

World 4-1
To gain all the lives you want, try this:
On Stage 4-1 (with at least 3 eggs [maximum 5 eggs]), grab a shell. But do not make a egg out of it.
When you get to a point where there's two tunnels with piranha plants, kill the plants with the eggs.
Stand on the tunnel facing the pipe with the shyguys jumping out.
Make sure that the shyguys are jumping out the tunnel. Then spit the shell out.
The shell should go back and fourth between the shyguy pipe and the pipe that you're standing on killing the shyguys coming out the pipe.
Be careful, because if a shyguy is standing too close to a pipe and the shell hits it, the shell and the shyguy will be destroyed.
Find the secret Beanstalk
When you are on level 1-7 at the end after you have gone through the tunnel, there is a log. Go to the top tip of the log and jump. Then a bouncey ball will come out. Jump on that and you will go up. Then go to the left and roll the rock. A question mark will appear hit that and you will go up a beanstalk.

Level 3-8: Pirahna Quick Kill
After sliding down the tunnels and landing in the water, swim right in the water and jump up to the far left edge of the white platform. Before Kamek appears, shoot the small Pirahna Plant to win the boss battle easily.
Secret Coins
On level 1-3, If you go to the second advice box jump high to the left. If done right you will come upon a ledge. Run to the left and recieve 95+ coins.
