Extra life in World 3-2
There is an island toward the middle of the level. The island has a pole with a brick above it. On the right side of this island there are turtles. Hit the first turtle twice so that it goes to the right (and hits the other turtles). This will give you an extra life. However, this can only be done a certain way. You have to wait slightly after you hit it so that by the time you get to the last group of turtles the shell is off the screen. The shell will then bounce off of the pipe and come back at you, hitting the last group of turtles in the process. If done correctly the extra life sound will play.
