    Update Number 1:

    I just beat Tree Zone, I just had one quick question before I move on though

    Do 1-Up's count as Powerup's or specificity for this game, extra lives you win through bounus stages or the Slot Machine? I've been avoiding the so far, but I just wanted to double check before I continue.

    All right, guys, time for a quick update! Last time, I was able to finish three levels from world number one. Yesterday, I've managed to complete the rest of the levels. And today, I've gotten four levels done from world two. Like last time, I was pretty close to touching a power-up today. Thankfully, I was able to avoid it by standing still. If I had taken even a single step, then I probably would have obtained the power-up and get myself to restart the challenge. d:

    Out of the four levels I've faced today, my favorite would definitely have to be the third. It was quite fun to get through. The course had things called "Reversible Platforms," metallic tiles that float in the air. Every time you jump, they switch around their positions. And if you end up not landing on them, then you immediately fall down to the ground and lose one of your lives. These are quite tricky, and always require you strategize before making a move.

      Update #2:

      I literally did the same levels as Perdition Haze haha. My favorite of the levels was W2L3, where you are supposed to use the propeller block in order to advance. But since I couldn't use them I made some giant moon jumps instead :P
      Fortunately the level goes down instead of up so I could land each jump. However there was one part that required the propeller block so...

        There's a segment on Forest of Illusion 3 which requires a powerup. I'm recording it in parts, so I'm gonna end up going to Star World 5 through the fortress. Still gotta get the Green Switch Palace yet.

        I've managed to beat that level using the secret exit. Here is the trick:



        Position the key and yourself the same way as the screenshot. Jump straight up and eat the key with Yoshi. If timed correctly, the key can cause some of the yellow blocks to spin as it is getting eaten by Yoshi's tongue. I accidentally discovered this trick yesterday and I was able to replicate it after figuring out what was causing those blocks to spin.

        Unfortunately, that victory was short lived. It seems impossible to beat the Sunken Ship because you have to pick up the star at the end of the level. I even tried to hug the left wall after coming out of the pipe but you still pick up the star. Ugh, it looks like I just have to reach Bowser's Castle through the Star World after all.

        Update Day #3:

        Apparently my DS Lite charger came in the mail from Amazon yesterday, but my parents didn't tell me about it until today. Anyways, I started playing again today and got through World 3 and am almost at the halfway point at World 5.

        Al of the levels at World 3 were easy except for when I had to challenge the Cheep Cheep boss. That took me like 15 different lives, ugh it was a pain. I'm currently stuck at the Bowser Jr. castle in World 5. After World 5, the last two will be extremely difficult.

          I'd just like to say that I have completed Super Mario World, taking the star route from Forest of Illusion (because of the Forest of Illusion 3 issue). I have videos in parts, and also the route that I took. I also die a few times whilst recording.

          Yoshi's Island 1, Yellow Switch Palace, YI2, YI3, YI4, Iggy's Castle, Donut Plains 1, DP2, Donut Ghost House, DP3, DP4, Morton's Castle, Vanilla Dome 1, VD2 (Key), Red Switch Palace, VD2, Vanilla Ghost House, VD3, VD4, Lemmy's Castle, Cheese Bridge Area, Cookie Mountain, Ludwig's Castle, Forest of Illusion 1, DP2 (Key), Green Switch Palace, FoI2 (Key), Blue Switch Palace, FoI2, FoI3, Forest Ghost House, FoI4, Forest Secret Area, Forest Fortress, Star World 4, Front Door.

          EDIT: I would not consider 1-ups as powerups, since you are not powering up Mario in any way, only giving him lives.

          Another EDIT: I had to take the videos down because of stupid copyright notices. Everything is just getting stupid now.

          I am planning to record the whole run, just so there's proof that I did the playthrough without powerups. I might just suicide if I do get one just so I don't need to worry about that issue and just redo the level.

            Quick Update:

            So a few days ago I managed to reach World 6 in Lost Levels. I honestly was starting to have a... well, I wouldn't call it fun but a tolerable experience with the game, and then I started World 5, where I realised what I was actually getting myself into. Anyway, I hope to finish the game within this week.

            Just a quick little update. I managed to survive Yoshi's Island without dying...an extreme number of times. I'll try getting the video uploaded soon, but most of it is just me rambling about stuff while trying to dodge powerups and everything that wanted to kill me.

            Without any power-ups, this is one of the most arduous games that I have ever played. To get through World 6, it took me at least 3 hours. I've been playing a few hours each day since Tuesday. Finally I'm at the final castle on World 8. Will post pictures tonight or tomorrow once I beat the game. This is a very hard challenge. xD

            Update Today:

            Finally beat that last castle and Bowser. Only took me about an hour. lol

            Here are some pics for verification:

                This morning I actually remembered about doing this challenge (pretty much a standalone challenge), and started NSMB2 while I wait for my GTS deal to finish.

                I'm currently at world 4. Will post screenshot once I beat the final world (if).

                  I haven't seen this mentioned in the rules, so I'm assuming (hoping!) it's ok? Game is tough as nails!

                    Whoops, so it is! I'd better get playing, then! And thanks for the warning!

                    Edit: Luckily, I've been able to play quite a bit tonight; I'm already up to World 8 without using a power-up! Hopefully I'll be able to finish the challenge before the deadline tomorrow.

                    Update: Well, that's it! Managed to beat the final level just now. What an awesome game! And the no power-up challenge made it even more fun. Can't wait to play 3D World at Christmas now!

                    No screenshots like I promised, but I did beat the finally. I nearly forgot about finishing this!

                    When I kept dying because of small mistakes at the end, it reminded me of playing the old Mario games.

                      I'll be honest, I got rocked on World 8. Last stage before Bowser too, it was too crushing

                        So I did manage to beat Lost Levels, surprisingly, but I haven't uploaded the video to Youtube yet so I can't really prove it... Will it be too late to link the video when it's been uploaded?

                        EDIT: DONE. NEVER AGAIN.
