"A nice classic game for the Game Boy Advance!"
Super Mario Bros. One of the first Mario adventure games ever. All I can say is wow. This game was originally released in the 80's but is still spectacular. Of course, the graphics and sound might be poor compared to what we have today but that doesn't matter. It doesn't change the game. In Super Mario Bros, Mario must venture through numerous levels in many different worlds to rescue Princess Peach. Bowser has just kidnapped her. To progress through levels, Mario must kill enemies such as Goombas, Hammer Bros., etc. He can do this by jumping on them, or even throwing fireballs at them! Just don't let them touch you, or you might die! Some unusual ways of killing them are jumping up to hit a block that they're standing on, or becoming invincible and just running into them. In total, there are 32 levels. All of these levels range from extremely easy, to nearly impossible. Whatever your skill level is, there might always be one that you die on! You'll find yourself sliding around on ice, running around below the ground, swimming in water, and more! There's also two player mode if you have a friend or sibling near.
The next thing that I'd like to cover are the graphics. Lots of people would say that this game has the worst graphics ever. However, for a twenty year old game, made originally for the NES, I really need to cut it some slack. The only reason that I wouldn't give it a ten is because times have changed. Many people have HD televisions and are used to great graphics. This game just doesn't have the graphics that most people want.
Although the graphics might not be great, the sound is fine. There are appropriate sound effects throughout the game. For example, if a shell was hitting a block, or Mario was smashing a block, you would hear it break. If Mario jumped on an enemy, you'd hear it get squished. If he got a coin, you would hear that familiar sound. The sound is pretty good in this game.
This game is extremely addicting. if you die, and get a game over, you'll have to start at the very beginning! This makes it an extremely long game that I find nearly impossible to beat. If you're looking for a good challenge, I definitely recommend this game. Prepare for fun, frustration, and...more fun!
Overall, this is a great game that I recommend every gamer to have. It's one of the best games out there in my opinion. Get it now!
