Lemme just get one thing straight to be sure: I can't use the standard 1-2 head-lodge trick to get to the first warp zone? I can see how a lot of the tricks in the game are abusive, but that particular one is pretty zero-advantage. It's all good, I just want to be sure I can't do that.

Wait, like the minus world trick? Well, you can try I guess ;) I mean, the category is basically "glitchless." Hey, if it were allowed, I could get to the warp zone like 2 game ticks faster :D

Holy shit, haha, that IS the -1 warp. wtf am I thinking...

1st warp zone is just go across the top. The other way is always -1.

I guess that's what happens when you haven't played a game in 20+ years. :) This is exciting, I haven't touched this since the early 90s.

dafk? Just fired this up, 4-2 warp zone only goes to 6? Am I doing something wrong, or is my memory just shit? <mad>

I've forgotten a ton, but I do remember that world 6 and 7 are full of nightmares.

Arcade made some changes to the original, but are very similar. Vs SMB is much harder...

andrewg,

So on 2-1, for example, is it best to do the beanstalk, or ignore to do the whole level w/ the coin pipe?  Is the tradeoff for time/coins worth climbing the vine or not?

If you plan on beating the game, take the vine for the extra coins, otherwise take the bottom path and go in the pipe also.

All I saw was the post of the maps and this

- hidden 1-up blocks are hidden in 1-1, 3-1, 5-1, 7-1. You must get enough coins in prior x-3 stage for these to appear. Example: I got enough coins in 2-3, now the 1-up in 3-1 will show up.
- shell combos with 1-ups are possible in levels 3-2, 5-1, and 8-1
- grab every coin you can without being dumb
- Beating the game will net you 100k per life left, and will almost definitely give you over 1 million if you do.
- fastest route to beat game: 1-2 -> warp to 4-1, 4-2 -> warp to 6-1
- pattern for 7-4 is bottom, top, top then bottom, top, bottom

Good luck all.

I just realized the maps show what is under the blocks DOH. That is what I was really looking for. I just thought it was a map of the level not where the 1-up was.

My secondary general advice is just:
If you don't plan to beat the game, just beat as many levels as you can being cautious.
If you plan to beat the game, grab all 1-ups and as many coins as possible.
