Bonus levels, rounds, or stages give players a chance to gain extra points, powerups, or lives. Occasionally bonus stages will play completely different than the rest of the game, like as a slot machine or pinball minigame.
A minigame in Mario Super Sluggers where pinball is played, Bowser style!
A type of stage themed around, or made entirely out of, food - often confectionery.
A place were everything is unnaturally or naturally large compared to the protagonist.
A common type of stage featured in many games. Slippery ice, avalanches, and freezing water are some of the unpleasantries to be had when visiting these cold arctic regions.
Whole levels dedicated to the industrial theme. These levels resemble factories or other industrial areas, and are often filled with conveyor belts, tesla coils and other contraptions.
A common type of stage based around the fire and/or lava element. Often platforming heavy and inhabited by fire-based enemies.
A stage or level designed around a theme of musical instruments or audio equipment. Most common in platformers, where the instruments often act as platforms, obstacles, or even enemies.
Sometimes, pinballs are actual characters, not just lifeless spheres of metal. They could be established characters like Mario or Sonic, or they could be characters just for that pinball game.
Yet another type of stage included in lots of games. Nefarious tin soldiers, deadly domino rows and letter blocks of death are some of the perils one might encounter in a Toy-Box Stage.
