5 Lives Only, Must Use A New Game ONLY! [No Codes Or Continues Allowed!]
Special Rules: You may use either Mario or Luigi. Your scoring attempt ends when either you die for a 5th time, or you manage to complete the game. The Turtle Stair Hop trick is banned and use of it will result in immediate disqualification of your score, accidental or not. [This also would include the use of a single enemy to get increasingly larger amounts of points by repeatedly jumping on it, including Pipe or Block ricocheting. In this instance you may jump on it, send it flying and jump on it once more and ONLY once more and then you may send it flying, leave it be or destroy it. Any further attempts on the single enemy in question will disqualify your scoring attempt.] Use of the Wall-Jump tactic is not allowed. "Hiding" from the hammer brothers on the left side of the screen is not allowed. Use of ANY Pipe to go somewhere different than the programmers intended is banned. Forward Warping is permitted, Backwards Warping is NOT. Secret Worlds are permitted. On any castle level where you must touch the Axe to complete the level, the tactic of grabbing the Hammer at 000 seconds is banned and use of this, even accidentally, will result in your score being immediately disqualified.
[The Turtle Stair Hop trick is where a Koopa Troopa comes down a set of stairs and you leap onto it at the correct time so that when you hit it, the shell hits the stairs and as it comes back to you, you manage to fall on to the shell again, causing it to bounce back... and so on. When implemented, this allows you to leech points and gain insane amounts of extra lives.]
[Wall-Jumping is defined as jumping against a wall [or pipe] in such a manner that a pixel or two of Mario is stuck in the wall [or Pipe] and is able to use that to jump again, far higher then can be done normally. Further definition; Mario cannot be made to jump off of a surface that is 90 degrees perpindicular to the ground. Please note this can be further used to also go through solid objects not normally passable as is disallowed.]
Special Note: You may submit for this variation via the Super Mario All-Stars or Super Mario All Stars + Super Mario World cartrdige.
