Your finishing time will determine which type of bonus you get.

To access warp cannons, find the secret exits in these levels. Warp Secret Exit World 1 to World 5 Find the secret exit in the World 1 Tower. World 2 to World 5 Find the secret exit in World 2-A. World 3 to World 6 Find the secret exit in the World 3 Ghost House. World 4 to World 7 Find the secret exit in the World 4 Ghost House. World 5 to World 8 Find the secret exit in the World 5 Ghost House. How to Get 99 Extra Lives Go to World 2-4. Just before the end of the level, you'll see a koopa descending a staircase. Jump on top of him as he walks off the third step from the bottom. If timed right, Mario will continuously jump on the koopa's shell as it bounces back and forth against the wall. As long as you don't touch any buttons, you'll keep collecting points and earn up to 99 lives. This trick is an Easter egg from the original Super Mario Bros., which features the same cheat. If you mess up, go back to the left a little, then go back to the staircase to find the koopa has reappeared. Original Super Mario Bros.
