Who remembers the NES and SNES hotline, and who has called it???

I remember calling it for super mario on SNES. the one level where instead of going through the normal goal thing at the end of the level, you have to fly underneath it and keep flying and there will be more goals. i think that level was near the forest somewhere. if it weren't for that help line i think i would have gone crazy.


off subject, but who remembers the movie "the wizard" where the little kid goes to a big NES tournament in california. the one dude uses the "power glove".

The wizard sucked, and I see calling the hotline like cheating, you should have figured it out yourself.

They are the ones that cheated for making that level!!! I spent hours trying to beat just that one level, i was everywhere trying to beat it. i never thought of flying under the goal, i tried flying over it but it just made you finish the level and then restart it from the beginning.

if i remember right, there were big fat-off arrows pointing underneath the goal, it was quite obvious really :p
then again, i had to call about one of the haunnted mansions, the one with the big green floating things always ****ed with me

I learned my lesson with the Nintendo hotline. There were about $80 worth of long distance calls of on the phone bill. I was 11 and didn't know a thing about "long distance" charges. They never really helped much.

Why the hell would anyone be stupid enough to call up a game helpline?

First time I ever tried to get that secret goal it probably took me 10 minutes max.

I know where every secret in that game is though....and it's not like I played it nonstop for a year. I just really dont find that game that hard....fun as hell though.

Does anyone besides me feel a little disappointed that it's so easy to beat Bowser in the end. I'd prefer a bit more of a challenge.

guess i didn't see the arrows lol. but i didn't have too much trouble with that haunted mansion.


bowser was pretty easy once you get to the castle. I almost wish they didn't make the whole star road thing. i mean i'm all for secrets, but that makes it way too easy to beat the game.

overall the game is excellent though. a lot of thought put into it and tons of secrets.

I had that for the nes. I always hid it so my brother wouldn't use it to cheat on mario 3.

I have come to the conclusion that 90% of the people in the world know most of the secrets in Mario-world thats whats so beautiful about it, its a game for every man. I can go to a friend house and everyone who's their will yell, take that pipe, or dude get the yoshi, or hit the P-switch...

Beauty in simplicity.

Super NES was teh sex.

I still own my copy of Super Mario RPG. Best RPG ever (non-serious RPGs)

It had humor, romance, intrigue, etc.
