The Mini Marios start close together, in the bottom left quadrant of the course. Throughout the course, they have to be guided by a series of Blue Lifts between floors and reach the Goal Door, located at the top left.

M Coin[edit]

The M Coin is located on a platform at the bottom left, between two pairs of Blue Lift Rivets, right under two Mini Marios. To collect it, the player should draw Blue Lifts to the platform and back, ensuring that the Minis do not fall into the pit of spikes nearby.
