The 'Shroom:Issue IV
From the Mushroom Vaults: Easterly Eggses and Things that go OW in the Night!
This month, I’m offering a full-fledged walkthrough for the YIDS level “Yoshi’s Island Easter Eggs”, plus a couple of miscellaneous tips for DKC2 and DK:KS. Also, I’m introducing the Monthly Challenge section. Have fun!
“Gaze upon my knowledge!” ~ Cranky Kong
Easter? In March?
We know it probably took you forever to complete that annoying Yoshi’s Island DS, but Easter? Already?
Yoshi’s Island Easter Eggs is an annoying collection of extremely annoying tricks. Though you’re probably mastered most of them (Lakitu hijacking, anyone?) there’s still plenty to be learned… through trial and error. With this guide, though, it’ll even out the chances to mostly trial.
Egg #1: Yoshi Terrorists attack Civilian Lakitus!
Poor Lakitus. What have they done to deserve mauling and cloud-stealing of the first degree? They chuck Spiny eggs at Yoshi and attempt dive-bombing of the second degree, that’s what.
Simply leap atop the Lakitu while he whizzes about the room, trying to find a shot. Then into the spiky room, on the Lakitu’s cloud, you go! Grab the key to the right before going to the left. (A
There’s Red Coins hidden in that patch of yellow coins in the corner, so snag them before unlocking the door.
I Can’t Believe It’s Not A Trampoline!
They’re floating, bloated, rotund, not fun, A-N-N-NOYING… the Bouncie room is one of the most annoying features of this level. If Yoshi watches his bounce, he can soar to extreme heights. But bounce off the wrong end of the pink blowhards, and Yoshi gets propelled into the depths.
There are red coins in the following areas: After two formations of coins, drop down a bit to find a formation of coins shaped like three “+” symbols. There’s a Red Coin in the middle! At the edge of the wall, the closest coin to the wall is a Red one in disguise. Leap off the ledge with the door and flutter through the nearest row of coins for one more Red Coin.
After reaching the door, Yoshi should flutter and Bouncie all the way to a Flower and a platform with a key to the door.
Crouching Shy Guy, Hidden Platforms
This one has straightforward items… but a really annoying gimmick. There’s a Shy Guy in the middle of the room, shielded from all Yoshi attacks by a brick wall, turning the platforms on and off! It takes awhile to get the rhythm… after wasting about 83 lives, though, you’re bound to get it. There’s a Flower in the bottom-right corner of the room; lock the aiming cursor down-right, then flutter across the room and snipe it when the platforms go off. Plus, the five-coin formation to the right of Shy Guy’s barrier conceals two red coins. With perfect timing, Yoshi must grab the key without being crushed by the platforms, then race to the left and unlock the door… which also sits precariously on a temporary platform!
Lemme On! Lemme On! My Turn! My Turn!
After the last “egg”, the solution to this one should be obvious. Slurp the Shy Guys, then, holding down Up on the D-Pad, spit them so they land on all four switches. Be sure to save one or two eggs to shoot the two Red Coins and the Winged Cloud above the pipe for the key first, though!
Remember those dark, dank levels with torches? This “egg” takes that a bit further. Without the lights from stomping the ! Switches, the room goes entirely black, except for a halo of light around Yoshi! Plus, this little gimmick is a real <sarcasm>”help”</sarcasm> to item collection.
After hitting the third switch, take a ride on the platform for a Red Coin. Hit the switch again as soon as the lights go out. After bouncing for a Flower, flutter right until a switch is seen. Above it is a Red Coin. (Incidentally, after hitting this switch, one can bounce off it and, with extreme fluttering finesse, make it to the next platform with a switch without riding a precarious moving platform. Also, this allows easy access to the key and last Red Coin, which are located right by the highest switch!)

The game is NOT canceled right now. To stop it from cancel, I need a good Gamemaker user(s) who can help me. Email me (at Superluigi821@aim) and tell me if you wanna work with me with making the game. Dry Bones (talk) is already helping, but I need more!
I will send you a sprite sheet of various characters who are going to appear in the game. We will work as a team creating the game.
Things needed to be fixed:
- Bugs. Bugs. Bugs. And bugs.
And various things. Note that Monty Mole's level is currently being remade.
In the next issue...
Will we finally get to see more screenshots? Will we see the giant sprite sheet I've been hiding? Will we play the demo?
Find out next issue!

Merchandise Review: The Super Mario Bros. Super Show Boxset
What Mario fan who grew up in the 80s/early 90s doesn't remember the Super Mario Bros. Super Show? No matter how cheesey, ill-conceived, or completely off the plot of the games the show was, it had all our favorite characters and we loved it.
Which is why I think most of us will be very pleased with the complete series, in the form of two boxsets packaged by SHOUT! Factory, containing not only every episode from the series(Including the live action segments), but the following extras:
- An interview with Captain Lou Albano, who played Mario during both the live segments and the cartoon.
- Original storyboards of the title sequence
- Original storyboards of the "pattycake" routine.
- Original background art galleries.
- Interactive tour of the Mario Bros. Plumbing live action set.
- Short film on Captain Lou's autograph appearance for boxset 1.
- Original background art galleries.
Additionally, in the first time since their original TV airings, the previews for upcoming Zelda episodes are preserved in the live action segments.
Sounds like they got everything, right? Unfortunately, no. The 80s tunes that appeared in each episode back when the show was on TV have all been removed due to copyright limitations, instead replaced with instrumental versions of The Adventures of Super Mario Bros. 3 songs. This is the only setback, and if you can get past that, it's an enjoyable collection that no Mario fan should miss!
I rate the Super Mario Bros. Super Show DVD collection with a 9/10. Go buy it whenever you can!
Hello, welcome to my section AKA Entertainment Section, names RAP... Here I review some of the fantastic SWFs or clips from fans who make stories above from the infinite database! Let’s hit the road and start the reviews!!!!
Supah Mario Dy Es
This SWF whatever file is created by RogerregoRRoger who was a member in Newgrounds. The story goes off as usually like in Super Mario 64 DS; but with a funny twist so crazy you might laugh. It goes as the Mario brothers received an email from Princess Peach; usually it says about a new castle and bringing your friends (or foes!) and blahatyblahblah… and when they arrived; Princess Peach shows them around the castle, at the end of the tour; Bowser came along to kidnap the Princess. Worst of all, he trapped all the characters in this castle; except Yoshi about to free the group. The group goes into random painting to collect Power Stars to restore the castle and save Peach. Meanwhile, Bowser finally talked to Peach about something after the kidnapping; shockingly, Peach has to bodyguard Bowser Jr. because Bowser replaced the Koopalings. Despite that, the Koopalings came and tried to get the hands on Jr. After that was over, Bowser uses her as bait as he keeps Peach. Back at the group, they are so sad; they talked to Toadsworth about the problem and they suddenly played mini-games, forgetting about Princess Peach. At the rest of Bowser’s time, he guarded Peach and wait for Mario to get Peach. And then Bowser is slowly getting bored… No wonder he’s stupid with her… As such, the graphics are usually average; some worst like Bowser and some good as such; you’ll get the hang around it… The jokes that the storywriter put are surprisely funny especially the NPC joke… If you want to watch some crazy story with some crazy setting when you’re obviously bored here for some reason... Go... Here!
The Real Luigi’s Mansion
So that’s it, a new mansion for Luigi to scare so easy?! Anyway, this one is created by some guy named Dan-Dark again a member in Newgrounds. This time the ghosts will goof off too much where they make trouble with Luigi here. This is like some comedy movie people like, but this is a laugh with the ghosts and Luigi. Unfortunately, the clip has no plot or storyline since the jokes can randomly pop-up from nowhere as you speak… And you laugh as anyways... The graphics are somewhat good; due to the fact it has sprites and have drawings in it made in MS Paint... SO if you want to laugh so hard and like ghosts... Go... Here!!!

New ACTIVE Users
Yet another 193 users joined the crew in March. Here's the low-down of those that made a difference this month.
A few noticeable tidbits this month. First to come, in regards to administrating promotions, the writer of this article was promoted to bureaucrathood, the only besides Steve. This user in turn decided we needed a 11th sysop and promoted Yoshi626 (talk), a very active user. There have been no changes since and no planned changes for awhile. Remember that both sysops & bureaucrats are both equal to users in terms of editing. Additionally, Steve is off the wiki for 10 days for Spring Break.
Next up: UnMarioWiki, another Wikia successfully created by MarioWiki users. If you need a break from our "factual and strict" setting, they've got some crazy things to read on there, including a fun choose-your-own-path "The Game". We are not officially affiliates with them, but check it out anyways if you haven't already.
Though not officially news, look out for a boost in article edits with the release of Super Paper Mario. More items, areas, characters, bosses, and everything you could expect from a Paper Mario installment. If you've spoiled yourself like I had, you've found out some interesting things already... ;)
Finally...MarioWiki:Anniversary is now created. It took me about 15 days after Issue III to create it, when I said the link would only be red when Issue III was "hot off the press". Oops. 9 members made it to the first committee meeting (above expectations) and we're looking for more last-comers next meeting. You must join the committee by April 21st, the day of the 2nd meeting, if you're interested.

We finally have the list of new characters joining the SSB universe. Here we go!
The secret of the Dryites has been revealed. They say they are not in fact real Toads, but Shroobs. Mr. Joke, a Dryite has stated this. Strangely, him and his accomplices were giggling the whole time he was telling the story of the Dryites. Must have been a Shroob thing. The police team later detained them for questioning and they said they were joking. We should have seen that coming. Either way, we're keeping a close eye on them.
Wayoshi (age 15) died today in a tragic car crash. The other driver wasn't looking where he was driving. The driver was none other than Donkey Kong. He made some sad grunting noises, so the police let him off with the charge of 10 Golden Bananas. Wayoshi's funeral will be held at the Princess Peach's Castle Dungeon. The MarioWiki users couldn't chip in enough money for a funeral reception. Oh well. The real question is: What was Wayoshi doing driving a car at 15?
Strikin' it Rich
I was wandering around the desert, looking for oil. You see, I was doing it for my kids and I'll tell you later. This isn't the time. Anyway, I bumped into this talking tornado. It told me to dig around some ruins. I went and I did what it said. It even gave me a ride. After a lot of digging, I thought it was lying. But at that moment I had hit black gold!
After he found the oil, he legally had to pay Mario back for the 100 coin investment. In interest, he had to pay three times as much. Ironically, that was all the money he made for the oil. Maybe he should have gotten more oil. Now what will poor Lumpy do?
The crowd at Glitz Pit (various ages) had a tussel today. The crowd went wild when the Great Gonzales and Rawk Hawk were climbing the stairs to have their match. A bunch of rowdy Doogans and Lakitus had a disagreement on who was going to win. A Doogan swung at a Lakitu and instead hit an innocent Toad, the situation escalated. Great Gonzales and Rawk Hawk were too immersed in their battle to notice the fight. The fight was a rain of mallets, Spinies, and fire. Luckily, the Glitz Pit security team had the situation under control.

Riddles of the Pipe
I have three hands
This riddle isn’t for one,
I am the great, spectacular prince of the nation!
Joke 1: One day Toadsworth was driving thru Shroom City, when his phone rang. He flipped opened the phone to hear the voice of Princess Peach. Peach said "Toadsworth...there's a concern on the news. A car is driving the wrong way! Please be careful." Toadsworth laughed, "Mistress Peach it's not one of them, it's hundreds of 'em!"
Joke 2: What do you call someone else's cheese? Notcha your cheese
Joke 3: What was the worst thunderstorm ever? Mayor Kroops' mouth...'cause it never stops!
Editor's Notesby the Director
And so here we are again with another successful edition of the 'Shroom, with 11 articles this month, including 2 new writers, RAP & ChrisAlassal. Sadly, combined virus problems and extracurricular activities left WarioLoaf (talk) unable to write his 'Shroom Fake News section this month. The article count hopefully will then go up to 12 or even more next month.
I know I said April 7th was the due date, but I had to push it back 2 days (curse the life of divorced parents...sometimes you don't know your schedule). Thanks to all others for still getting their articles in on time. Issue V's deadline (100% this time) is Saturday May 12th.
Like last issue, I leave a link to MarioWiki:Anniversary again in this section, so that all of our active contributors are aware of the event. Heads up for writers: I am planning a special issue that has just the complete results, including exact votes for each nominee of every award, in August and just my chart of monthly statistics instead of what would be Issue VIII, giving you guys a month off from writing and leaves your focus on writing award presentations (more on that later).
Now for the 4th time, thanks for reading!
