Johnny's Reviews[edit | edit source]

General Information[edit | edit source]

This game is one of my all-time favorites for the Orignal Game Boy. This game was quite fun and had almost everything that you would expect from a Mario game.

Graphics[edit | edit source]

In comparison to the original Super Mario Land the graphics are a huge improvement. The style of graphics makes it *almost* unique to the Mario games seen on regular consoles. Though there's still the same style of spent block (as in once you jump underneath a ? block, the spen block has the same design as in Super Mario World. Plus, the graphics are in the original Game Boy style, which means they're not colorized.

Rating: 8.5

Music[edit | edit source]

The soundtrack is also an improvement. Though limited, but they still sound very good, plus some stages have their very own track in it that's heard in only that stage and not any other stage.

Rating: 7

Sound Voice[edit | edit source]

The sounds in this game are also quite good. Though the biggest drawback is that they're borrowed from the NES versions of the previous Mario games with some new sound effects. As for voice, there really isn't any because of the MB limitations of the original Game Boy.

Gameplay/Controls[edit | edit source]

The gameplay tot his game is what you would expect in a Mario game. It's quite simple to learn. Plus, this game (unlike most of the Mario games on the consoles) has some very unique obstacles and traps you must avoid. But the ease of use of this game is also it's weakness. If you're a truely skilled gamer, you'll finish the entire game in just a few hours. But it's a good play for those who like casual-friendly games or somebody who likes game with "ease-of-use".

Rating: 6.5

Replay Value[edit | edit source]

There's not much to come back to this game...unless you have missed some secret stages in any given zones. But there too few and some of them are quite easy to find. But it's the game's only reason why you should come back.

Rating: 2

Final Thoughts[edit | edit source]

Apart from the ease-of-use and low challenge, this game is quite fun to play. It's surely worth the 4 dollars it takes to download from the Nintendo E-Shop on the 3-DS. I would definately recommend this to even those who like to be challenged.

Overall Rating: 7.5
