Find Secrets in Super Mario
There are different types of secrets in different Super Mario games so how you carry out these tips might vary a little from game to game but the ideas are still similar.
Take your time and look around very well while your exploring the level. If you rush through to the end you will miss a lot of secrets. Keep an eye on the clock since you are timed but within reason, check corners and spots that are off the screen. There might be a hidden door or warp portal/tube or just a star or coin behind a big tree or wall.
Don’t Follow That Arrow
In some games there is a sign with an arrow pointing which way to go. If you go the opposite way it points or another way sometimes there is something hidden that way.
Play the Level More than Once
The more you play the level, the more things you will notice. Maybe there is a spot you didn’t explore already that you missed because you were busy collecting coins. Play again without worrying about coins and see what you can find.
