Super Mario Bros. 2: Japanesereview by MEGAß¥TE, 1-15-98
|Genre:||Action / Adventure|
Just play it as SMB, collecting Super Mushrooms, Stars, and Fire Flowers to help you on your way.
Each of the worlds is separated into four levels, just like in SMB. After you beat World 8-4, you will either continue on to A-1, or 9-1 depending on if you used any warp zones. More on this below. The final stage of the game is D-4. If you lose all of your lives, you are given the option to continue on the first level of the world you are on. This is just like the secret code in SMB.
—Tips and Tricks—
|It was one of the earliest Nintendo games, remember, but it still had decent graphics. Improved over SMB.|
|The sound is exactly like SMB, and that is not a bad thing.|
|Play control varies because you can choose either Mario or Luigi, who have different attributes.|
|This is a very challenging game.. they didn't even release it in the US because they thought it was so hard.|
|It's a Mario game, therefore it's fun.|
|The design is much improved over SMB, but some of those obstacles... I don't know what the designers were thinking..|
|This game has enough challenge, and with the World 9 only accessible if you don't use warps, playing it again is a necessity.|
|There are not many new items above what SMB had, so it truly is SMB2. But those posionous mushrooms now...|
|It is a very good game; it's a shame they only released it in Asia. If you can find a copy, keep it, and play it!|
