Original Mario Bros theme and fireworksIf you beat a level with a time left of x11, x22, x33, x44 etc you get fireworks and the original mario level completion song will play.
Mushroom houses at start of each worldThe mushroom houses at the start of each world (the point with an arrow at the start) differ determining on the time you get on a stage. If you get x11, x22, x33 on the timer, a Red Mushroom house appears, which generates items.
If you get x44, x55, x66 on the timer, a Green Mushroom house appears, which is a 1up minigame.
If you get x77, x88, x99 on the timer, a Orange Mushroom house appears, which lets you gain a Mega Mushroom into your inventory, thus overriding anything in it.
Extra Lives at FlagpolesAs you may know, jumping onto the flagpole at the stage's end will net you some points (up to 8000). In this game, if you somehow manage to jump high enough and land on the very top of the flagpole, you will automatically receive a 1-Up.
Warp Zone CannonsIn some worlds, there are cannons you can access (usually through taking secret exits). When you enter the cannon area, there will be a large cannon in the area, and a world number written below it. If you want to warp, simply drop into the cannon and off you go! Here is a list of the known warp zones thus far:World 5 Warp #1: Take the secret exit from the World 1 Tower.World 5 Warp #2: Take the secret exit from Stage 2-A.World 6 Warp: Take the secret exit from the World 3 Ghost House.World 7 Warp: Take the secret exit from the World 4 Ghost House.World 8 Warp: Take the secret exit from the World 5 Ghost House.
