I think it would be better to construct an actual "Turtle Tipping Infinite Lives Trick" achievement instead
25 Aug 6:04 2015
How is it that I'm matching a guide for that trick to the letter, yet it's not working? Oh I can get the shell to stop on the ledge, and I can even get it to look like it's moving right, but Mario refuses to bounce off it! What am I doing wrong?

I had to try a few different ROMs to get this one to work. The Japanese version of the game worked for me, but the European version did not.

Thanks Laura, that did the trick! It even fixed the oddly sped-up music I had prior! ...which also happened with SMB2 come to think of it, though it didn't interfere with any achievements...

Demoted it, because it's just valueless grind.
12 Sep 22:30 2016
I disagree with that decision... sure, grinding THAT much is pointless, but pulling off the infinite life trick isn't so easy...
12 Sep 23:44 2016
I thought about making the achievement for actual trick, but I'd have to use alts to make it happend. Promoted it back.

alts don't work in retroarch right now

this is based on a glitch and should be removed

Agree with above.

Finally got this for the first time in my life, why did no one ever mentioned you had to keep jumping when you're on the turtle -_-'

Agree with the previous comments; Should be removed as it requires a glitch or is otherwise just pointless grinding.
11 Apr 21:10 2020
I agree with the others. It should be removed.

Turtle shell tip: Don't try to do it ON any of the steps. Walk all the way to the right facing the bottom step and wait for the first one to come down. Ignore the second one since it will be killed as you're bouncing. It's much easier in that spot.

I strongly disagree that it should be removed. It's literally something everyone who grew up with this game tried to do. It's the most well known 'glitch' in this game. And judging by how few people can do it, it's worth leaving in.
