Toad, Super Mario Advance 4: Super Mario Bros. 3

The Orange Mushroom House[1] is an orange-colored Toad House that contains one of the special minigames found in World-e in Super Mario Advance 4: Super Mario Bros. 3. The Toad House is unlocked after 80 Advance Coins are collected, so it is unplayable in non-Japanese versions of the game prior to the Wii U Virtual Console release. The player must pay 30 coins each time they play this minigame.


With a 100-second time limit, Mario or Luigi starts on the bottom floor with a P-Wing to his right. Afterwards, the player must avoid several spikes (red ones are stationary, while blue ones move) and sparks. If the player manages to reach the top, the player is awarded a random item. Any contact with spikes or sparks, however, has the player lose instantly.


  • The core mechanic of the minigame, consisting of flying through the air while dodging moving spiked sparks, seems to be based on the Nintendo video game Balloon Fight (specifically its Balloon Trip mode).

"NOTE The Orange and Red Mushroom Houses have similar (but as of yet, undisclosed) mini-games in this style. They cost 50 and 80 gold Coins respectively, but the prizes are much more impressive and rare. That's another reason to collect all future e-Reader cards!"
