Keep in mind that, assuming you hit all the flagpole tops, each coin in the first stage is worth 8, each coin in the second is worth 4, and each one in the third is worth 2. If you get a lucrative enough level to start with, you can really rake in the money! Especially if the level contains a Gold Flower somewhere.
Nice job on breaking 5 digits, anon...guess I gotta step up my game.
So are you guys even bothering with the white tanuki suit for coin rush? I tried it out and yeah it makes is much easier but it feels so remedial. I guess it could be convenient just for finding the best paths without worrying about dying too much.
Also it's a flat-out huge advantage if you happen to get a level that gives you the tanuki leaf instead of a fireflower or whatever because it basically means you're guaranteed to get the multiplier, the tanuki suit really breaks the whole flag-jumping mechanic.
@Guillaume Yeah I spent way too much time playing this game last night instead of doing my work, yikes.
@Davenor You can play the whole game co-op I believe, but it takes 2 carts unfortunately, and no online whatsoever. Unlike NSMBWii the levels seem to be mostly designed with single player in mind though, unless they alter with two players.
@deathly_hallows I was just pointing out that everyone's complaining about the lack of time between releases, when other series have done the same thing (like Uncharted 3 and Golden Abyss releasing three months apart). I didn't mean to make it the focus of my post.
I can't wait to get NSMB2 in the mail. You guys are making it sound great.
I'm curious about that as well. I played through with that once just for kicks, but my score was actually lower than my personal best (which admittedly isn't that good) and I didn't see whether it counted towards my total or not.
