Map of the level

In the beginning, the player starts off with encountering the wooden Spikes and one Dry Bones that throws a bone at Mario. After that, the player finds more pencil pillars that go up and down, as well as Bowser Statue flames. There is also a ? Block with a Cape Feather. The player must avoid hitting the edge of the pencil pillars, as well as the Bowser Statue flames. At the end of the first room, there is a midpoint section as well as a door that leads to the next.

The next door leads to a place with four Thwimps, and two Thwomps. There is a short fall that leads to more Thwomps, as well as more power-ups. The player must then continue heading to the right, where they find more Thwimps and Thwomps. A few of them can be avoided by activating the Red and Blue Switches. At the end of the second room, there is a boss door and a green ! Block. The player must enter the boss door to fight the four Reznors.
