            Gain fire power when on a level with bowser( castle boards) At the end run under bowser and stand next to the key that drops the bridge. just when bowser comes to kill you jump into the air and try your damndest to hit both the key and him at the same time( very, very , very hard to do) If you do this right youll start to shrink and sorta be able to see through yourself. At the next level when you gain fire power youll shrink and be red. When you get touched by an enemy youll grow.

                  prentilc,

                  I pulled this trick off less than 5 times. It was a bitch to be able to jup straight up and hit the axe and Bowser's head at the same time. But I do remember that you were the "small" version of Mario, but when you threw a fireball, you were "fire mario" for the frame he was throwing a fireball during. It was a nice glitch, but not very useful.

                    So, who here has managed to reach the -1 world in SMB?

                    Besides me, that is.

                      I did, I remember it had something to do with jumping a funny way causing you to float through the wall to the warp zone on world 1-2, but I forgot how to do it. I also remember a rumor of a chocolate factory stage, but it was never confermed.

                        for the minus worlds you are supposed to go on top of the tube on level 1-2 and jump backwards and you walk backwards iinto another pipe

                          How worthless is that Cheat! show anyhow? The internet makes that whole program obsolete. That host has great legs though; if only she wasn't so annoying.


                          I think she is cute.

                            My cousin showed me that trick once. It was more than 10 years ago.

                            In the same game (SMB) you can hear different music when completing the first level if you jump to release the starman and don't get it just yet. Just go behind it until you get to the stairs. Then take it and run as fast as you can to the flagpole.

                            That's an old trick too but some of you might not know it yet.

                                When my friend did it, he died. But the screen still scrolled over and you saw the Princess and all of that, sans Mario.

                                We too were trying to do that little-Mario with fireballs trick, but we thought it was all BS after did that.

                                      I'm not sure if this is a cheat but I remember how you can have almost unlimited 1ups by jumping on the koopa shell on the corner of the stairs. Anyone else remember that one?

                                        Yes, and you can still do it in New Super Mario Bros. on the Nintendo DS!
