Is it possible to collect 110 coins on Bombarded by Bob-ombs?



  • In Super Mario Advance 4: Super Mario Bros. 3, the e-Reader stage Bombarded by Bob-ombs has a strange coin-shaped block at the start that I've never seen before. Hitting the block adds a counter that decreases when you collect coins. The Super Mario Wiki claims that https://www.mariowiki.com/Bombarded_by_Bob-ombs#Level_synopsis , but I couldn't find a source for this. I tried to confirm by playing the stage myself but was unable to find 110 coins.

    Is it possible to collect 110 coins on Bombarded by Bob-ombs? If yes, does doing so after hitting the coin block actually earn you 3 extra lives?

    The quality is very poor but https://youtu.be/zjNdrC1v_p8?t=156 you can clearly see that it is possible to collect the 110 coins and doing so awards 3 extra lives as documented in the Wiki.

    For historical purposes, this is the relevant frame in the video:
