This page contains Super Mario Bros. 3 Hints for NES called "Extra lives" and has been posted or updated on Sep 3, 2006 by 38dugame. Let us know what you think of this Hint by thumbs voting.
Start a game and go to the second level (with the grass). Make sure you have a leaf and go to where the flying red Goomba is located. Wait for four yellow Goombas to appear. The game should start to slow down. Jump on one of the Goombas and hold A. Then press A to slowly fly down fall on another Goomba, and hold A. More Goombas will appear when you kill them. Keep doing this to accumulate points. Once you start getting a life every time you hit a Goomba, you will get another. However, do not forget to watch keep track of your time.
Go to the second world and to the level that has a pyramid. Go to a pyramid and wait for a turtle to appear. Jump on the turtle so it will not come out of its shell. Then, keep jumping for points and extra lives.
When you go to any pink note, enter with a super leaf -- if you wait and then fly up after the third group of coins you should be able to find coins in a circle around a block. Hit the block and an extra life will appear.
Hit a note, then bounce up onto a block in World 5-2. Then, go into the tube a bit farther up to find another tube. Enter it after defeating the Goombas to find a huge block with at least three extra lives inside.
