Famicom Dojo: Turtle Tipping for Infinite Lives
Super Mario Bros. is now out for the Wii U Virtual Console, so why not brush up on a few tips and tricks?
A few weeks back, we showed you how to get to the Minus World on the NES, Famicom, and Famicom Disk System versions of Super Mario Bros. — and since then we’ve verified that it also works on the Wii U Virtual Console. Now we are happy to show you how to get infinite lives with the famous Turtle Tipping exploit!
Well, “infinite” might be pushing it a bit since your game will glitch if you get too many lives. And just how many you have isn’t exactly easy to decipher, though I’m sure someone who has peeked at the ROM data might be able to tell you what all of the odd symbols mean. Just doing this trick once should be more than enough to get you through World 8-4 — and maybe even the second quest! Check out the show notes at FamicomDojo.TV for more detail on how to perform this trick
That’s all we have about this classic title, at least for now. Are there any other Super Mario Bros. tricks or exploits you would like to see? Any other games with cool secret tricks you’d like us to demo? Let us know! We’re already working on several for Super Metroid, and one for Super Mario World — so those don’t count!
