Super Mario World Cheats For SNES

Unlimited Lives

If you beat Donut Ghost house using an alternate exit you will unlock the "Top Secret Area" level that you can use to farm unlimited lives. Before you do this, make sure that you have a cape feather and thus are able to fly. Go to the Donut Ghost House and at the very beginning of the level get enough speed to fly up top to a platform sitting above all the ghosts. Follow this platform all the way to the right till you can drop down from there. The next area has a door you can go through that will take you to the end-level goal, this will unlock the secret level above.

If you already have a Yoshi, you can begin farming extra lives, if not make sure to grab him from the middle block once you enter the "Top Secret Area" level. To farm lives just go in, grab a life from the middle block, exit the level, and do it all over again. This is an easy way to farm unlimited lives with very minimal effort.
