Product Information
For the U.S. sequel to Super Mario Bros., Nintendo retrofitted an Arabian-themed Japanese game called Yumekojo Doki Doki Panic with the familiar Mario clan. Other than a few minor graphical changes, the two games are nearly identical.

With the Mushroom Kingdom safe for the time being, Mario and his crew seek out new adventures in Sub-Con, a dream world taken over by the demented Wart. This sequel is missing the two-player feature of the original but adds the ability to choose from four playable characters at the beginning of each level: Mario, Luigi, the Princess, and Toadstool. The game is made up of seven words divided into 20 levels, and the end of each world contains a boss that must be defeated before proceeding.

An entirely new cast of enemies is introduced, including Shy-Guys, Snifits, and Bomb-ombs, and most of the power-ups from the first game are missing or have different uses. Mushrooms function as extra lives, and coins are used to play the bonus slot-machine game at the end of each level. Each character now has a life meter that can be refilled by hearts (which also make the characters "big").

Rather than jumping on enemies to defeat them, Super Mario Bros. 2's primary attack method involves picking up items and throwing them. Vegetables can be plucked from the grass and thrown, but other enemies will also work. In certain areas, a magic potion will emerge from the grass instead of a vegetable, and this potion can be used to temporarily enter Sub-space, an area that often contains a mushroom or heart, and where the grass reveals coins.

Each playable character has a complex interaction between their speed, strength, and jumping ability. To put it simply, Mario is average in each category, Luigi can jump the highest, the Princess can float but is otherwise weak, and Toad can't jump well but is the strongest.

Although it was originally based on a non-Mario game, many of the items, enemies, and gameplay concepts introduced in Super Mario Bros. 2 went on to play an integral role in future Mario adventures. The game was re-released as part of Super Mario All-Stars for the Super NES in 1993, and in Japan as Super Mario USA in 1992.

Rare NES game shines

Super Marios Bros. 2 for the classic Nintendo console is probably one of the most popular games in the Mario Brothers franchise. Second only to the Mario 3 sequel for most players, this game features multiple characters, including Mario and Luigi, but also introducing Toadstool and the Princess as playable characters for the first time in the game. Each of these new characters has their own advantages and disadvantages - from Toadstool's ability to speed-run through levels to the Princess's "float" skill, each character including the originals has things to offer, and thankfully the Luigi in this game is not a different-colored carbon copy of Mario. The game has multiple levels with lots of hidden easter eggs to find and shortcuts that a true explorer of the game will have no difficulty with. There isn't much strategy to the game with exception of the final World, and even then you're limited more by the items in your collection than by the abilities of your character. This game is a must-have for every NES game collection, and simply begs to be played.

The quirky, American release of Super Mario Bros. 2 will entertain!

Yes, I would recommend this product to a friend.

After the success of Super Mario Bros. A sequel was released in Japan that highly resembled the gameplay and look of the original. However, Nintendo quickly assumed that Mario's new adventure would be far to difficult for American gamers. Their solution was to add some Mario sprites into a game called 'Doki Doki Panic' and slap the Mario name onto it and call it Mario 2 in the United States. The real (japanese) Mario 2 is now known as the 'lost levels' in the united states and was later released on the snes with updated graphics as a part of the 'Mario All-Stars' compilation. In the meantime, American gamers plucked vegetables, carted keys, and utilized the abilities of the four different playable characters to defeat the dastardly frog, Wart. Though radically different from its predecessor, Many elements and enemies from Mario 2 such as the 'shy guy' became commonplace Mario elements and the game is actually quite tight and entertaining. One of the more meaty NES titles. Pick it up!

In a Class of Its Own

Super Mario Bros. 2 is a game unlike any other. I remember having this feeling of confusion when first playing it because of how the first Mario gameplay was. This game was completely different. Enemies were destroyed by throwing objects at them and it was the first time you were able to play other characters besides mario and Luigi. Each character had their own attributes. You will find that each character is easier to control at certain levels over others. Overall this game is a classic and a must have to any nes player.

Great product for the price, hours of play if you like sidescrollers

Yes, I would recommend this product to a friend.

Although not really a part of the mario series until it came to the US it's still a very challenging and good game. Being able to play 4 different characters, each with a special talent is great. Although I always stick with princess for floating. It's only flaw is that the characters always seem to have slippery shoes. They slide more than would be expected and it's a real challenge in the Ice world.

Overall a really fun game and quite worth the money.
