This mushroom will give Mario or Luigi and extra life. It is usually
hidden in secret places in different levels. How many do you know of?
The beloved beanstalk can be found in different levels. It is hidden
in a brick. Once found it grows upward into the sky. Mario or Luigi
can then climb it to a little mini-game level. Where you collect
coins. At the end of collecting the coins you then drop back down to
the level you where on. But now you are further in that level.
Bricks are scattered throughout levels like coin blocks. You can jump
on top of them to avoid enemies or jump to a higher platform. You can
also hit them from below. When you do that they will commonly just
disappear, but you may also find something inside, it can be a 1up
Mushroom, a Beanstalk, Coins, a Mushroom, a Fire Flower, a Starman,
or even a Beanstalk.
These are scattered throughout stages, as well as being hidden inside
Coin Blocks and Bricks. Mario and Luigi can collect them, once either
has 100 of them, they get an extra life, and the coin counter goes
back to zero.
These are scattered throughout many levels. They can contain coins,
but can also contain items such as the Mushroom and Fire Flower. Once
hit they do not disappear, but just become blank. You can jump on top
of them just as you would a brick.
Level or Platform:
This item doesn't really have a name, it is just another platform, but
I consider it special, and that it deserves to be here.
This item is in a few different stages and varies in length. It
sometimes goes up and down and left and right. Mario then has to use
it to get higher up in the level, or further across. It can also be
seen attached in a pulley system. Where to of these are connect by a
rope. When Mario or Luigi goes on top of one, the other moves up while
the other goes down. You can also see them standing still. But once
Mario or Luigi stands atop of them, it quickly falls down, which means
Mario or Luigi has to quickly get across them.
Beanstalk Level or Platform:
This item also doesn't really have a name, but I think it also
deserves to be here.
This platform is seen in the Beanstalk mini-level game. Once Mario or
Luigi stand upon it, it quickly starts to move across the level. You
can then quickly jump and get coins.
Now this item does have a name, the good ol' Jumping Board.
It is in some levels and Mario or Luigi can jump atop of it, it
will then spring up and down. If Mario or Luigi jump at its peak of springing they will shoot very high. But be careful, if you
jump to early you will barely jump high at all, you may end up falling
into a hole.
The famous Mushroom. This is hidden inside bricks and coin blocks.
Once found if touched by Mario or Luigi they will become big. Once big
they will have to be hit twice in order to die.
This is found in the same places as the Magic Mushroom, but you can
only get it if you have already gotten a Magic Mushroom, and are still
big. You have to be hit twice in
order to die.
Starman, a.k.a Star of Invincibility:
The star is the the item you can get in whatever state Mario or Luigi
is, whether they are big or small, or have fire, you can get this
star. It is hidden in bricks and coin blocks. Once you get this you will become invincible for a
brief period of time. Once invincible, you can destroy enemies merely
by touching them. But remember your not completely invincible, if you
fall into a hole, your dead.
