There are still powerups to help the bros along the 8 difficult worlds, along with warp zones,
however, some of the warp zones may take you back A few worlds, depending on which zone you find,
And there is another type of mushroom in this game, basically doing the oppiside of the red ones,
These are known as Poison Mushrooms, they appear in A dark color, and will revert Mario to his normal size,
however, if Mario touches one of these Poison Mushrooms while already normal size, It will cost him A extra life.
Another new thing introduced is Green Springboards, these will lanuch Mario way up into the sky, going very far off the screen.
