The 'Shroom:Issue XVI/FTMV
Tips, Secrets, Hints, and Cheats for Mario's games!
The start of Mario RPGs was released in 1996; it was very popular, lots of people liked it, it's being released on the Virtual Console in Japan, blah blah blah... Okay, let's just cut right to the chase and skip the boring history lesson. I'm going to tell you how to get an infinite amount of coins.
When you are heading towards Rosa town, enter the area where there's a load of Shy Guys by treasure boxes. Go to the bottom-right exit. Hit the box next to the door to receive many coins, but do not completely empty it. Go back through the exit, and reenter the exit once more; keep hitting the box as I mentioned before, without draining it of coins. Repeat
and rinse until you have all the coins you want!
I've only recently bought this game, and already it's one of my favorite games. This game is also notable for revolutionizing the style of game sprites. Okay, now that I've bragged with how epicly awesome this game is, I'll tell you today's tip. So, you're fighting Cackletta for the first time and you're having trouble grilling her cheese, right? Then, it must be when she splits into three different entities. Right? RIGHT?! HAH! I though so... anyway, when she's cloned herself to have two duplicates, it's actually quite easy to tell the real Cackletta apart from the bologna cronies. When she attacks, one clone will raise her right arm, another will lift her left arm, and the third will lift both arms. Attack the Cackletta that raises both hands to damage her. Then, just keep doing so until the old hag disintegrates!
Did you know that you can infinitely stay in a 3D flip? Well, all you have to do is get Mario's catch card from the bottom of Flopside's Pit of 100 Trials. Good luck beating Shadoo though...
There's not one thing that sucks about this game, in my opinion. It's one of the greatest Mario games ever. The graphics are also pretty awesome. Wait, what am I talking about? This isn't the Review section!
Well, as you may or may not know, this game is jam-packed with Easter Eggs. Having played the game almost thirty times, I've probably found close to everything hidden in the game. One of my favorite secrets of the game is the NES reference in the game. This can only be performed only once in the entire game. When in the X-Naut Fortress, head for the ventilator shaft. Drop through the vents into the dressing room (where you played as Peach earlier). When you open the curtain...
...HOLY CRAP! You're in 8-bit! :O It doesn't last when you leave the room though, so be sure to get the best out of it while you can.
Well, I hope you enjoyed RPG Month!
