Description: The first new 2D Mario platformer since Super Mario World has arrived. Boasting incredible 3D graphics to accompany classic 2D gameplay, this fast-paced adventure will have Mario fans cheering as they make their way over fields, under water, through castles and into the air.
New and familiar enemies are everywhere, not to mention mind-blowing challenges made possible by the dual screens of the Nintendo DS. Not only that, but players can link wirelessly with a friend to play as both Mario and Luigi in multiplayer mode.
Unlockable: Play as Luigi: Complete the game and save it and select the saved game and hold down both the L and R BUTTONS, then enter A. The green sporting super mario bro is unlocked.
Unlockable: Special Backgrounds: First you beat the game. Then load the saved file for that game. Go into the blue Toad house now located in World 1. In here you can purchase five different backgrounds for your lower screen. They all cost Star Coins. To get the fift background, you have to get all of the star coins in the through-out all the levels.
Unlockable: Unlimited Toad House Items: Clear all the levels and lettered bonus levels in the game and save it.
Hint: Extra Toad Houses: At the end of the levels, jump onto the flagpole and when the last two digits of your countdown timer are the same. For Red Houses, jump on at 11, 22, or 33. For Green Houses, jump on at 44, 55, or 66. And for Orange Houses, jump on at 77, 88, or 99.
Hint: Power-ups: For more power-ups, go back to World 1 and play the stages with the Red Winged Question mark blocks.
Hint: Warp to World 5: There's a warp pipe that'll instantly bring you to World 5 from the World 1-Tower. When in the hidden room with the second Star Coin, notice a small gap in the upper-right corner of the room that's never closed by the shifting blocks. You can jump into the gap to reach a hidden area with a 1-Up (smash the invisible blocks as soon as you enter the room). Shell Mario can go one further, breaking the blocks along the floor to reach the warp cannon.
