Just got the game.

A no coin run will be way more challenging than expected...
Posted: 08/22/12, 06:04:18

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.
Posted: 08/22/12, 06:28:25

You do know that hitting the top of the flagpole gives you a 2x multiplier right? And that's cumulative.

(Are there any other multipliers that I don't know about?)

Maybe we should have a new thread devoted purely to coin rush? Perhaps tips as to determine the 'optimum' paths for various levels?


I love the gold flower. I think it's my favourite Mario power-up ever.

Anyone else whistling the main theme out loud? It's quite catchy even though it's familiar.@plootThat was Fink's doing! I can't update right now.

@ShadowlinkThat can be done right here in this thread. I will analyze my run, later, right now playing RE Revelaitons with Wei.

Just thought it might be easier having it seperate from the rest of the game impressions. Eh, whatever people are comfortable with.

You know, even though the music/backgrounds are rehashed, I'm really loving the level designs of this game.

I'm planning on holding off on going back to Coin Rush until after fully beating the game...though we'll see how long I last ;x
Posted: 08/22/12, 07:09:10
I just got over 5K on Mushroom Pack, guess that's nothing compared to Mikey's 11 gand, but I'm proud!

EDIT: I think it would be cool for Coin Rush to have it's own thread.

The game is more fun than expected! I'm hooked already, still in the first world!
Posted: 08/22/12, 08:57:45
1700 coins on 1st level of Mushroom pack...I wish I could save this if I fuck up on the next bit. Sigh.

Yep I fucked up. Missed the flagpole on the stupid ghost level. Final score 4296.

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.

Yeah I spent way too much time playing this game last night instead of doing my work, yikes.

I didn't pick this game yet but I saw somewhere a silver Luigi. How is the multiplayer? Is it only for coin rush or you can multiplay in story mode?

Do you need two cartridges to play?

Posted: 08/22/12, 15:06:26
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.
Posted: 08/22/12, 15:12:53
Finished the second "secret" world...brilliant level design! Still meh on the rehashed assets (mostly on the music), but the game itself is great!

EDIT: Point of clarification: everyone is doing Coin Rush with Mario (not Raccoon Mario which makes it stupid easy), right?

@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.
Posted: 08/22/12, 15:50:55
What I was wondering is if the coins you earn with the white tanuki count towards the total million? Because that seems a little unfair.

We really need online leaderboards! Patch it in Nintendo!

Well I don't think many people complained about Golden Abyss coming out so soon after Drake's Deception because no one has a Vita!

@deathly_hallows Yeah, I think it's just me...
Posted: 08/22/12, 15:53:57

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.
Posted: 08/22/12, 16:01:03
Yeah, I haven't used White Tanooki in Coin Rush.

The problem is that since he's invincible, you can't hop on enemies and chain them. This is a pretty major way to get coins in levels where you can have Golden Koopa Troopas.

Also, you can't get Golden Flowers in stages that have them, and they're amazing for getting coins.

On the plus side, you can usually hit the top of the flagpole. 'Cause man, missing that thing at the end of the second stage after a great run just STINKS.
