i was assessing my SMB3 ROM and also i discovered in teh graphic data there"s an anchor, and also as far as i know, it"s no used everywhere in the game, it"s the same size as the symbols that show up in the bottom item bar ~ above the map screen.was this component of an aborted feature, or somethin?its in both the american and japanese versions.

You are watching: What does the anchor do in mario 3

you acquire it from the white mushroom homes in few of the worlds. It provides it for this reason the airship in ~ the end of the human being doesn"t paris all roughly the map, but rather stays rooted to wherever that was once you offered the anchor. Nice ns guess if you don"t beat all the levels, yet I"m way too lot a complete freak come skip end levels anyway...

oh.. Ok.. Thanks.there"s a large question note in there, too.never viewed it used in the video game (the anchor and the question mark are v the data because that the p-wing and also star and mushroom and all the other symbols that sit in the tray in ~ the bottom...)

I"ve never discovered the Anchor come be useful enough to use, despite I constantly pick one increase in civilization 2-2"s Blue Mushroom House.Question Mark? Huh?

Wait, you"re detect this in the graphic data, right?I"m pretty sure the huge Question mark is seen in among the mini-games...Possibly reused in gigantic World...

I constantly thought the anchor was useless because I never failed come beat the airships on the an initial try... View image: /infopop/emoticons/icon_wink.gifAlso, ns think you"re an alleged to beat every the level if you want the cool stuff, especially P-Wings and Frog Suits and also the ever elusive, rarely Hammer Suits...

if i had actually a location to write-up a screenie that it ns would..it"s the precise same size as every the various other tray icons, favor i said.and i"ve play smb3 to death because it came out and also i"ve never seen the anchor. "course i"m pretty good at knocking those punk ass doom ships out of the waiting on the first try by now.me opens up emulator *gets very first whistle* *warps to civilization 4*.nope. The concern blocks are too blocky to it is in this question note icon.get a rom graphic util. Discover all the symbols for the tray and you"ll check out what ns mean.might be supplied for the map game.

My favourite powerup was the shoe. Hmm, up till this point I thought I knew what the shoe to be called, think it started with a K? perhaps someone have the right to enlighten me.Anyway, the was my favourite level because it to be the only one whereby you obtained to use that shoe and also the level went backwards.

As has been stated a couple times, you acquire it in the an enig mushroom houses in some of the worlds. Human being 2-2 (for example) can cause one come come up on the map (I forget the circumstances) and inside is the anchor.

Hmm, up until this allude I assumed I knew what the shoe was called, think it started with a K? possibly someone deserve to enlighten me.Anyway, that was my favourite level since it to be the only one wherein you obtained to usage that shoe and the level walk backwards.Kuribo, the Japanese surname for Goombas i think.

I usually simply go with each people 1 - 8 once I play the game now-a-days, but I have always wondered, how numerous warp whistles are there total? I know of the one in 1-3, 1-minifortress and also on the third screen of civilization 2 ~ fighting the fire-brothers. Space there any kind of more?Also, are few of the princesses letter in the dorn order? Why go she tell girlfriend on human being 5 that there is a warp whistle come the eastern of the dunes...

For as soon as you pat the video game again, silly. See image: /infopop/emoticons/icon_wink.gif and also no, just 3 warp whistles total.quote:might be supplied for the card game.That"s it i believe.

yup. In 1-3. Press down ~ above the white block mixed in through all the colored ones. Climate run towards the end while you"re behind the scenery.. You"ll run behind the darkness at the end...in the an initial castle, over the door to the raising and lowering overhead spikes. (fly up off the display screen right after tha lava pits, and run over and press up)^^--------------D--PT-----------------D is teh door, lata pit is pt, paris up (use the flat area come get sufficient speed up)and the 3rd is on a hidden extension of the map in people 2. Quit the boulder in the top right edge with the hammer you get from the boomerang men *name?)^for those that don"t know^ view image: /infopop/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif ns Love smb3. Even much more than smw.R0Ck

You can acquire white mushroom dwellings on every human being (execpt for probably 9). The odd worlds give friend p-wings the even ones give you the anchor. Which i assumed was quite pointless, due to the fact that if you"re good enough to acquire the Anchor you probably dont need it

*me checks*the warp zone area is human being 9.not lot of a "world" though.(see because that yourself, statusbox states "world 9" in teh corner)i assumption: v it"s the interplanetary gateway (shortcuts come teh different worlds) the SMB3cool check out image: /infopop/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

One that the points we supplied to execute was deliberately not get extra men etc., because when friend continue, you have to redo every one of the levels excellent by that character, but likewise get to redo the mushroom houses. This would allow us come get many hammer suits and tanooki suits, depending upon how boring we were. So periodically what would finish up keep going is the airship would certainly fly into a job of levels that we had beaten, but came to be unbeaten after having actually to continue, so it might be semi-useful to throw an anchor top top it. Ns don"t think we ever before bothered actually utilizing it though, just a possible theory/use ~ above it.

another point that needs to it is in addressed. The pearl are dubbed doom ships. *idiotic, pointless musings*the doom ship can"t it is in piloted by the koopa kids. Unless the steering wheel hides when you satisfy them, and unless the delivery locks position, exactly how does it not crash and also burn?and just how come girlfriend never acquire to watch who pilots the ship? eh? i"d think somethat that large that paris would require a damn an excellent pilot.
