The World! Stop Time! is the second level of World 4. An underground level centered around freezing time.

Level OverviewEdit

Begin the stage by activating the P-Switch near you. The time counter and the enemies will freeze completely. Taking note of this, proceed right, collecting the power-up and hitting another P-Switch.

You'll soon come to a P-Switch next to a pipe. Hit it and cross the pit by jumping on the Koopas. Proceed further right, dodging the enemies. Hit the P-Switch next to the midpoint and go in the pipe.

Hit the P-Switch right after and get on the number platform. Wait for time to flow again to use it. Follow the set path, hitting any P-Switches along the way. In the end, hit the P-Switch to turn the floating coins into blocks and to freeze the Bullet Bills. You're right next to the goal.
