World 3-3 is the third level in Water Land from Super Mario Bros. 3. It is accessible upon completing World 3-2, and its own completion unlocks World 3-Fortress1-SMB3.png.


The 1-Up Mushroom

The level starts in a somewhat large platform, as the tide rises and lowers and a Boss Bass chases the player. Shortly after this, there is a Koopa Troopa and a line of Brick Blocks, with also some Hard Blocks and a Note Block that contains a power-up. One Brick Block also contains a P-Switch. Next are some gaps followed by a Rotary Lift, two more Brick Blocks containing a power-up and a P-Switch, and two Ice Blocks. After that, there are several coins which will serve as platforms if the player pressed the P-Switch. Otherwise, there are some Brick Blocks above them alongside another Rotary Lift. There will be jumping Cheep-Cheeps in the process.

Afterwards there is a Warp Pipe which takes the player to the goal. However, if the player goes to the right, they will find a lone platform with a Brick Block containing a 1-Up Mushroom.
