Early Levels

These levels were likely used to test moving objects within levels. Most of these levels are identical to the final versions of the levels, but there are a few that are slightly different. In most of these levels, you start out on the large circular platform from Spinning Top which contains a couple of warps that rotate around the platform. There are also five switches on the platform that control all moving objects in the level.

Test Levels

Stage 181

A multi-stage test map.

Stage 182

SMB2-stage182.png
A standard test level which doesn't display properly in-game. You can see its collision if the DIP_STCOLI Dip Switch is enabled.

SMB2-earlyguillotine.pngSMB2-earlyheavysphere.pngSMB2-earlytiers.png
Present among the files for this level are early versions of Guillotine, Heavy Sphere, and Tiers.

Stage 183

Another multi-stage test map.

Stage 185

A very large, obstacle course like test map.

Stage 186

Another test map and a large one at that. This one can't be explored normally since the game crashes as soon as you land; The reason why this happens is that the level's .gma and .tpl (model and texture files respectively) combined go over 2 MB, which is the maximum that can fit into the game. Upon landing, the .lz (the collision information) causes the game to run out of memory and hang. Deleting the level's .tpl will allow you to play through the level. The various numbers on the ground represent the mipmapping, some of which you can see by changing the zoom on the minimap. Every so often, the sky will flash white, making it impossible to see anything for a few seconds.

Stage 187

SMB2-stage187.png
Another level which doesn't display in-game.

SMB2-earlyspikes.png
Present among the files for this level is an early level gimmick that never made it into any level.

SMB2-stage188.png
Another level which doesn't display in-game.

Stage 189

SMB2-stage190map.png
Looking at the files for this map reveals that it's another multi-stage test map.

Stage 191

SMB2-stage191.png

SMB2-earlyflatmaze.png
Present among the files for this stage is an even earlier version of Flat Maze.
