CHARACTERS ============= All the characters are said to be the same, but I've concluded that there are some distinct differences in some of them. DK seems to get caught up when in a group of characters and slower than the rest, but he jumps higher and is good at blocking people (such as people trying to get ahead of you). Others, like Yoshi, seem to out maneuver DK and Wario. Some characters are better than others at certain minigames, like Princess Peach who is good at the "Bumper Balls" game. Please mail me if you want to voice your opinion on this and I will put your responses up in this section. =================== 3. MUSHROOM VILLAGE =================== 1. Warp Pipe: This goes to the main game or a tutorial. When you enter the main game Toad will ask you things like how many players, character selection, etc. He/She/It (Toad) will also ask you to choose between 20, 35, or 50 turns. 20 turns is called "Lite Play" which is about 30 minutes, "Standard Play" is about a hour and a half, while 50 turns ("Full Play") will keep you playing until your eyes close shut from irritation. You can choose a board here also . . . check out the boards section when it is up for more info. 2. Option House: You can change mono/stereo and erase saved data. You can also buy the talking parrot and jukebox record at the Mushroom Shop to listen to some tunes here. 3. Mushroom Bank: Coins and stars are put here as well as the items you buy from the Mushroom Shop. 4. Mushroom Shop: You can use the coins you earn to buy items that will help you in the normal game and do other little fun things. Check the items section for more info on them. 5. Minigame House: Here you can do a number of things. You can view the minigames you've played, rent them for once at a time, or buy some to play over and over again. Most range from 50-450 coins (1-player games cost the least, 4-player games cost the most). You can also go to Minigame Stadium, where players compete for coins. Basically you go around a star shape which determines if you are "red" or "blue" (see the spaces section) and play minigames until the set amount of turns are up. 6. Minigame Island: Here you go from minigame to minigame until you pass all 50 minigames. A good way to practice your minigame skills. You can also get some special minigames here. ======== 4. ITEMS ======== There are various items in the Mushroom Shop. I will try to explain them as best as I can, but I haven't gotten all of them yet so I just took most of the text right from the game. The number next to the title of the item is the amount of coins needed to purchase it. Plus Block (x200): This appears randomly, and you get the number of coins shown. Speed Block (x200): This appears randomly, and only numbers 8 to 10 will appear on the block. Minus Block (x100): This appears randomly, and you lose the number of coins shown. Slow Block (x100): This appears randomly, and only 1 to 3 will appear on the block. Warp Block (x200): This appears randomly, and players change positions on the board. Event Block (x200): This appears randomly, and Boo, and Koopa Troopa, or Bowser will appear. Casino Box (x300): Bet your coins and recieve double or lose half of your coins depending on if you won. Lucky Box (x400): Get 10 percent interest on the coins you collect. Mecha Fly Guy (x100): This counts how many times you rotated the control stick. Use it in the Minigame House. Talking Parrot (x50): This parrot is good at mimicing other characters voices. Use it at the Options House. Record (x50): Use this record at the jukebox in the Options House. KNOWN SECRET ITEMS ================== Magma Mountain (x980): This will let you go to the hidden board map of "Magma Mountain". How to get it: You need to play through all the normal stages to get this Bowser-themed stage. No Boo (x500): No Boo on some stages. How to get it: Get 'Eternal Star' stage (see tricks section) Submitted by: various people No Koopa (x500): No Koopa on some stages. How to get it: Get 'Eternal Star' stage (see tricks section) Submitted by: various people Credits (x100): See the credits. How to get it: Get 'Eternal Star' stage (see tricks section) Submitted by: various people ========= 5. SPACES ========= Blue and Red Spaces: Most of the boards have blue spaces with some red ones. The blue reward you 3 coins, while the red take three coins (except for the last 5 turns which is double for both red and blue). In Minigame Stadium, these spaces don't take away or give any coins. The spaces determine the type of minigames you play. If one person would land on red and the other blue, a 1 vs. 3 minigame would result at the end the round and so on. Blue Minigame: If you land on this star space you will go into a one-player minigame where you try to get coins. Question Mark: These do different things for different boards. Some switch Toad and Bowser, while others change where you go or move you to another space. Blue Mushroom: A Blue Mushroom can be really good or really bad. When you hit the spinning mushroom you either get a red mushroom which grants you another turn or a purple mushroom which sits you out for a turn. Blue Exclamation Mark: This pulse-pounding game can mess up your chance at winning or knock an opponent out of the competition. There is three spinning blocks, the two outside blocks are one of the characters while the middle shows what's going to happen. There are different middle blocks, such as giving your opponent 10 or 20 coins, trading coins and trading stars. Red Bowser: This space chooses a random "Bowser" minigame for you. The Bowser minigames include "Coins for Bowser" which is basically stealing all or some of your coins. "Bowser Balloon Burst" is where the losers lose 20 coins and the winner wins nothing. "Bowser Revolution" makes all the characters coins the same amount (usually a low one). "Bowser's Face Lift" is a Bowser head similar to Mario's head in Super Mario 64 where you need to change the face to what it shows (this also is a winner gets nothing, loser loses 20 coins game). "Bowser Roulette" is just like the blue exclamation mark game but one block it stuck on Bowser, making you give different things to him. There is always a gold titled game usually called "100 Star Present" or "1000 Coin Present". YOU CAN NOT LAND ON OR WIN THESE GAMES! Whenever your about to land on it it speeds up or goes back one. ========= 6. BOARDS ========= SOON TO BE UP =============================== 7. TYPES OF MINIGAMES/MINIGAMES =============================== TYPES OF MINIGAMES: =================== Bonus Games - In these games you can earn more than ten coins (except in Memory Match). If you do lose, you won't lose any coins. Success Games - If you win a Success Game, you earn ten coins. Losing costs you ten coins except in the Pipe Maze Challenge, which you won't lose any coins at it. Chance Games - Chance games take other players coins if you win and give your coins to the other players if you lose. 2-on-2 Games - You team up with another player and win ten coins each if you win. Losing, however, will make you shell up ten coins each to the other two opponents. Racing Games - If you win at these games you win ten coins. When you lose you don't have give up any coins. Point Games - Like racing games, winning gives you ten coins and losing loses you nothing. If there is a tie, both of the tied people win ten coins. Survival Games - The last player standing wins. Again, ten coins goes to the victor and nothing is lost to the losers. MINIGAMES ========= SOON TO BE UP ===================== 8. TIPS/TRICKS/RUMORS ======================== This section will be scant on tips and hints because I plan on adding way more with my next update (which will also include the Boards and Minigames sections). I just added some various codes from Gamesages. Gameshark codes fall under the "tricks" section which will be added soon. Please feel free to mail me if you have anything you would like to add. All submitted tips, tricks, or rumors can be edited for content. TRICKS: ======= GETTING COINS EASY If you are playing solo but want to get all the coins and stars from the other CPU players, try this. Right at the end of the game go to the options screen and change all the CPU players to 2P, 3P, and 4P. All the coins and stars they earned will be put in the Mushroom Bank. This will also work for 2 and 3 player games. DIFFERENT TITLE SCREEN If you beat the normal game with a character, the character that you chose will have his or her graphic on the title screen. BUMPER BALL MAZE 1 To access the minigame "Bumper Ball Maze 1" you must reach the goal of Minigame Island and defeat Toad in a game of "Slot Car Derby 2." Submitted by Jim L. Patzer (from Gamesages) BUMPER BALL MAZE 2 To unlock Bumper Ball Maze 2, you must clear all 50 minigames on Minigame Island and then go talk to Toad at the Goal. Submitted by Jim L. Patzer (from Gamesages) BUMPER BALL MAZE 3 Once you have set new records on Bumper Ball Mazes 1 & 2, Bumper Ball Maze 3 will become selectable. Submitted by Jim L. Patzer (from Gamesages) ETERNAL STAR STAGE To unlock the Eternal Star stage, get 100 stars and it will open up. Submitted by Gamemaster01 (from Gamesages) RUMORS: ======= -After you beat the game with Donkey Kong, Cranky comes up and actually pats him on the back! Submitted by Websearcher -If you get over 25 stars for each level Boswer gets hit in the head with a star and gives you a whopping 150, plus the 150 you got from the other levels equals 300 STARS!
