I haven't ran through this all the way in a loooong time.  Should be fun.

 

The turtle trick is the infinite life trick with the turtles on the stairs in 3-2 (or 3-1, it's been a while).

Very nice. What are turtle tricks?  Thanks. 

It's where you keep bouncing on a turtle shell on a "staircase." At first you get points and then it starts giving extra lives. Apparently the maximum is 99 lives.

I got to 8-2, I know I can still beat this but it's been a while.  I'll have to try again when my patience for those obnoxious world 8 levels is back.

I knew I could it.   8-2 was the only level I really had a problem with.  That and 7-3.

First time in years I saved the princess. Took quite a few tries. Great great game. Will try for a decent score now and thru the next three weeks.

Took two runs at it.  One to finish the game and one for score.  I think I lost 9 lives on world 6.  I need some practice...

Thanks for the heads up.  That's been corrected.

One thing I never figured out in this game is how to maximize your score.  I always was just trying to get to the end in one piece.  This time I went through all the worlds, but I guess I missed a bunch of coins and hidden coin rooms.  Maybe if I kicked more shells to get those incremental bonuses?  Ah, who knows?

burned my last few lives for a few extra points, then died before reaching Bowser, King of the Koopa.

in addition to the rules listed above, I also avoid collecting the same 1up mushroom more than once.

 

Through the test of time, Super Mario Bros has emerged as my most favorite Super Mario Bros game.  The other ones eventually get tiresome.  (not counting Mario Kart games)

 

I've been trying to reach a million points in this game for over 30 frikkin' years!  One of these days...

scored 970k a few years back

something's gotta give...
