Level Strategies

Unlike the previous level, the difficulty of that level is purely based on enemies, mostly the dangerous kind. The Fire Turtle is the main obstacle of the course, and one of its main threats. Unlike its hammer counterpart, it's easier to stomp it because its fireball projectiles don't go in an arc trajectory, reducing to 0 all risk of getting hit while trying to jump over. However, defeating them must be quick, because they shoot pretty fast fireballs in the player's direction and with a rather fast pace. The more it shoots fireballs, the more it's becoming hard to dodge them. More than that, its movement can easily make Mario get killed because it keeps on moving back and forth in an unpredictable manner.

Other than that, once the player reaches the section containing Bill cannons, they have to try to get out from here as fast as possible, so the Bullet Bills don't overwhelm them. It's especially important since the next part needs precise jumps and patience. Such hazards will quickly get in the way and ruin the player's progress.


  • This is the only level in Mario Forever that has a forest background scenery that stretches for the majority of the level.
