Fiery Blocks[1] is the first level of the Mario Zone in Super Mario Land 2: 6 Golden Coins.


The level starts in a short corridor, with several semisolid gears. There is a single ? Block, containing a Mushroom or Fire Flower, and a single Koopa Troopa blocking the path. The corridor quickly turns vertical, and the player must hop on gears upwards, to enter the Warp Pipe leading into the next room. A few of the gears are small and thin, and move Mario if he steps on them, and the Warp Pipe is guided by a Yashichi. The next room is primarily horizontal, with several gears now aligned vertically, with a few Koopa Troopas guarding them as well. The bottom path contains several spikes, though the gaps are large enough to jump through safely. The upper path has several coins, a ? Block containing a coin, and a Tatenoko. The next room is once again accessed through a Warp Pipe, where a ? Block containing a Carrot allows Mario to safely glide over the spikes and hit the Mid-Point Bell. Through the next Warp Pipe is the final room, which has the player platforming around gears and blocks, while dodging Koopa Troopas, a Yashichi, and three screws. A final vertical platforming challenge is at the end of the level, with a Tatenoko guarding the top. To the left is a bonus area only accessible by destroying the fiery blocks as Fire Mario, filled with many coins. On the right is a wall blocking the Goal. After hopping over the wall, the player must dodge a few spikes as they fall so they can finish the level.
