Donut Secret House is one of two ghost houses in Donut Plains.

Walkthrough [ edit ]

SMW-DSH-1.png

  • The Big Boo can be a bit difficult to pass. Lure him to move a bit up then quickly run under him, or if you want, you can spin jump off of him, although this is slightly riskier. The best option is to jump on the P-Switch block and jump facing left, so that the Big Boo goes up and you can safely go under him.
  • If you were curious about that turn block at the bottom right, you will end up there if you go through the trap by taking the mid-air door in the next section. It contains a 1-up mushroom.
  • Go through the door at the end to get to the second area.

SMW-DSH-2.png

  • You will end up on the right side of the room. The ? block in front of you contains a flower.
  • There are two doors you can see. The one at the very end leads back to the beginning. The other door you can see is hovering in mid-air. By grabbing the P-Switch above the door at the very end, carrying it over and stepping on it, you can make hidden ? blocks appear that serve as ground for entering this door. Unfortunately, if you were to do this, you would notice it just leads to a trap that takes you back to the beginning as well.
  • To find the real way out, inspect the coin formation after the mid-air door. If you carry the P-Switch there, a hidden door will pop up, however the coins will turn into brown blocks as well. Collect all coins beforehand and you will be able to easily reach the hidden door. It leads to the goal tape and allows you to complete this level.

Secret Exit [ edit ]

The secret exit is well-hidden in this level. In the second area, take the P-Switch to the mid-air door and step on it. As the ? blocks appear, go to the door, but don't enter it. Instead, jump at the turn block right above the door to make a vine appear. Climb it up and run to the right to see a hidden door. Quickly enter it before the P-Switch expires. If you're Cape Mario, you can take the P-Switch and fly up to that corridor, making this quite a bit easier.

Mini-boss: Big Boo [ edit ]

SMW-DSH-3.png

Unfortunately, it's not that easy to just unlock the secret exit. You will end up in a mini-boss battle against the Big Boo, who is guarded by two lesser Boos. To defeat him, you must take the blue blocks below you and throw them at the Big Boo while he is visible. You don't have infinite tries though - eventually the floor will open up and you'll be in trouble if you have nothing to stand on. As well, the two Boos in here can cause big trouble if you don't watch out. Hit the Big Boo three times and he will faint, completing the level. This endeavor is well-rewarded: the secret exit unlocks the first Star Road in the game, leading to Star World 1.

Super Mario World/Donut Plains/Donut Ghost House

The Donut Ghost House is the first ghost house in Super Mario World , excluding secret levels. To complete the House you have to go all the way to your right and take the door. Once on the other side, keep heading left and take the next door. Hit the yellow block and a P-Switch will pop out. Press it, but don't take the silver door that will appear. Wait there until the Switch times out and then take the door again. Hit the yellow block and this time a vine will pop out. Take it and you'll find the exit.

There is a secret exit at the beginning of the level that you must fly up to at the far left top that will take you to the alternate exit. This alternate exit will open the path to the Top Secret Area .

You can walk through a wall here to your left to find an area with a door. Hop across the light cubes to the far right in this new area. The switches illuminate the cubes but you can walk on them even if they are turned off. Follow the path to the red secret exit flag.

  • 2 Red-flag exit
  • 3 Star Coins

Layout [ edit ]

This level is the first Ghost House in the game. The gimmick of the whole level is that there are several ? Switches placed in the different areas of the level. The ? Switches are used to reveal staircases and certain doors. However, when activated, there is a time limit, and, if the time runs out before Mario reaches the area he is supposed to go, he must go back and hit the ? Switch again.

Red-flag exit [ edit ]

After pressing the third ? Switch to reveal the regular exit door, Mario must instead pass by that door and go back down the large staircase to find a newly-created door. This red-flag exit leads to a Warp Cannon leading to World 6 .

Star Coins [ edit ]

  • Star Coin 1 - The player has to enter a door next to a ? Switch. They should jump off a Splunkin to get the first Star Coin.
  • Star Coin 2 - After hitting the third ? Switch, Mario must make his way to the top where he will see a set of stairs from the left side. The player must climb these stairs before time runs out to reach this Star Coin.
  • Star Coin 3 - Mario will need to be in his Shell Mario form to obtain the final Star Coin. Before exiting the level, Mario must dash and hit the brick as Shell Mario. He should enter the newly formed hole and collect the Star Coin.
