Creator: Desmo360 BGM: "Subcon Synths" from Number Three with a Bullet Main Power-Up: Ice Flower Suits: 1 1-Ups: 2 Kelly: No
At least you're given ice flowers to work with. Nothing else can stop a bullet like an ice ball. The key to survival here is knowing when to wait and when to run!
A short distance after the checkpoint, you might notice this odd square edge in the background. It's actually a highly inconspicuous door that leads to the tanooki suit you see further to the right. If you're busy dodging Bills, you may not even notice it.
At the start of the stage, head to the left wall and jump to find yourself an extra life. You just might need it here.
In the room with the big metal blocks, another invisible block with a 1-Up can be found in the bottom-left corner of the chamber.
It's the running of the Bills! In spite of being bullets, Bills aren't really that fast. Mario can outrun them, and if you keep up with enough of them firing to the right, you can turn your screen into a true bullet hell.
But that's not the secret. If you keep this up all the way to the end of the stage, you can grab the star and turn all those bullets into sweet extra lives. It's not easy to pull off, but oh so very satisfying.
