Level synopsis[edit]

Swinging Bars of Doom
Map of the level.

The enemies in this level include Boos, Thwomps, Thwimps, Piranha Plants, Podoboos, Lil Sparkies, and Bony Beetles. There are some spots where the player must jump over lava, but for the most part, they must simply avoid Fire-Bars.

The ending of this level, however, is what really sets it apart from other fortresses. The player must fight two Boom Booms; one gets flight powers after a hit and the other has the power to jump.
