Mario & Pauline Bonus Stage

Mario & Pauline Bonus Stage

On the bottom screen, hit the ball into the hole on the right-hand side of the table. You will be taken to a bonus stage starring Mario and Pauline from Donkey Kong. You control Mario carrying a platform, and you have to free Pauline by bouncing the ball to remove the platforms under the wandering Pauline. You then have to catch her and move her to the exit safely for a bonus score.

Mario also appears on the game's U.S. boxart holding the platform.
