Have you seen Mario really hungry? Well in this game, he really is. So your job is to feed him as much as you can. The food Mario wants is the green coins. Get to them as fast as you possibly can. Every second wasted is worth a point. The game gives you three lives to start with. Be very careful with it, especially when jumping. Falling down the pit makes you lose a life.
Apart from the green coins, there are specially marked ones that come in red, orange, and black. They contain special upgrades that will give you additional power. Maximize their use once you got them. There will be levels with black backgrounds. In such a stage, the gravity is low. Try to use that to your advantage. An extra life will be credited to you if you reach the 5th level.
