The gameplay is simple: you control a Blargg chasing Mario. Though you can go faster than Mario, Mario can jump on ledges. Mario can also use Yoshi when he finds a Yoshi Egg. When he does, he can flutter jump, or throw eggs to slow you down. Yoshi only lasts for 10 seconds. Both players can also use items. Coins also appear. If you fall into a pit or Mario makes it to a gate, you get game over, but you proceed if you catch him.
All items can be used by either Mario or the Blargg. Each one is temporary.
|Coin||100||1/5||These common items are key, because they are the only way to get extra lives. Grab 100 to do so, but they work on Mario too, so watch out.|
|Dragon Coin||500||N/A||5 will appear in a stage. They will not affect you, but grabbing them is important, due to the fact that Mario will get an extra life if he gets them all.|
|Cape Feather||300||3/5||This item will give Mario flight powers, making him harder to catch and jumps more neccesary for you. If you gain it, you will be able to use two very high jumps.|
|Ice Flower||250||2/5||These items will give Mario the ability to shoot snowballs that create breaks in the lava. If you gain one, you will have the ability to spit snowballs that will travel in straight paths and will stun Mario if they make contact with him.|
|Yoshi Wings||600||5/5||These amazing items will make you huge! They will only affect Mario if he has Yoshi, which will give him flight abilities.|
|Star||500||4/5||These items will make Mario impossible to catch, giving you Game Over if you touch him! However, if you have it, you can go straight through obstacles and move much faster.|
