Mario the Pyromaniac is the second hidden stage in World 2. It revolves around the ability to burn logs using fire balls. In Thirteen1355's edit, this level is Forest Star.

Level overview[]

A very short stage composed mostly of floating logs. To progress through the stage, you will need to set them on fire using fire balls. Simply proceed to the right, burning any logs that are blocking your path. You should come to the exit in no time.

To get to the secret exit, use the P-Switch to the left of Mario's starting position to keep the Hopping Flame from burning the log and making the key fall into the pit below. Carry the key with you through the level. When you come across a floating bunch of logs, make sure to burn it so that you can reach the floating log above.

On that floating log, there is a keyhole, hidden within a set of logs. Burn them to reach it.
