I had to try a few different ROMs to get this one to work. The Japanese version of the game worked for me, but the European version did not.

Thanks Laura, that did the trick! It even fixed the oddly sped-up music I had prior! ...which also happened with SMB2 come to think of it, though it didn't interfere with any achievements...

Demoted it, because it's just valueless grind.

I disagree with that decision... sure, grinding THAT much is pointless, but pulling off the infinite life trick isn't so easy...

I thought about making the achievement for actual trick, but I'd have to use alts to make it happend. Promoted it back.

Agree with the previous comments; Should be removed as it requires a glitch or is otherwise just pointless grinding.

I agree with the others. It should be removed.

Turtle shell tip: Don't try to do it ON any of the steps. Walk all the way to the right facing the bottom step and wait for the first one to come down. Ignore the second one since it will be killed as you're bouncing. It's much easier in that spot.

I strongly disagree that it should be removed. It's literally something everyone who grew up with this game tried to do. It's the most well known 'glitch' in this game. And judging by how few people can do it, it's worth leaving in.

It should absolutely not be removed. As Shroome said, that was something everyone I knew was at least trying to do. I did it a lot when I was a kid too. It just takes some practice.

I disagree. There are tons of other glitches in this game and they all fit in a bonus set. It does not matter if it is easy to do it or not.

Glitches should not be included in a main set. They're not a part of the game, hence why they get patched out of later releases. It's an exploit that belongs in a bonus set with ALL THE OTHER exploits.
