But the gold rush doesn’t end there, as there are three all new gold-themed elements that will help you out throughout the game. The first of these is the Gold Flower power-up, which sees Mario become the amazing Gold Mario. Not only does this transformation allow you to shoot Gold Fireballs at enemies and blocks, it will also mean you can turn them into valuable coins. In addition, if you’re quick enough, you’ll also get the chance to turn 10-Coin Blocks into special Gold Blocks, which can then be worn over Mario’s head to collect a steady stream of coins as he runs before the power runs out. The third option for collecting coins will come when you spot a Gold Ring on a course. You’ll need to be skilful enough to jump through it, but when you do you’ll see all your enemies turn to gold – then all you need to do is collect the additional coins they produce in their own unique way.
