The Super Nintendo Entertainment System deserves a Super Mario hero, and that's exactly what you get with "Super Mario All Stars + Super Mario World." This Nintendo game features five remade Mario NES games on a single SNES cartridge.
This compilation game truly is an all-star edition that provides huge upgrades to the originals. All five Mario side-scrolling platformer games with a release date between 1985 and 1990 are included in this game. Even one version that was exclusive to Japan before 1994 is included. The unique design of this old-school game allows it to take advantage of Super NES hardware, including 16-bit graphics and parallax scrolling to enhance playtime.
Fans of Super Mario Bros will appreciate that this game includes all of the pizza-loving brothers' best adventures. What that means is the brothers are represented the same way they were originally, but made better.Although the games are technically remakes, each is almost identical to its original. One of the most notable differences is found in "Super Mario World." Here, designers made Luigi's sprites brighter to easily distinguish him from Mario. Super Nintendo felt that gamers weren't cognizant of the differences between Luigi and Mario, which led to some confusion. The changes to Luigi's costume are also present in the All-Stars version. Meanwhile, the traditional Mario costume remained unchanged.
The video game was originally released in 1994 and is rated KA, which makes it kid and family friendly. Each platformer game offers scrolling backgrounds, lots of enemies, and over 52 worlds to conquer. Enjoy all three Super Mario games plus Lost Levels and "Super Mario World" in "Super Mario All-Stars + Super Mario World." While each Mario choice resembles the NES originals, all five are enhanced as SNES games with updated graphics. Even the sounds in the All-Stars are better. The Lost Levels was the Japanese version of Super Mario Bros, and before this compilation was released, the video game was not available outside Japan. For most gamers, the Japanese version, sometimes referred to as Super Mario Bros 3, is harder than all other options on the cartridge. You can store up to four different save points and play the classic games on your own schedule in your own world. The original versions of Super Mario Bros did not allow players to save games, so this is an exciting update. The addition of this feature allows anyone to save their progress and resume playing whenever it's convenient. Gamers can also customize the controller for the All-Stars and Regular modes. For instance, the jump and dash actions can be configured to different buttons on the controller.
Remakes don't always work out. Franchises don't always put out sequels that pique the interest of their fans. However, this 5-pack blows other remakes out of the water. The Mario Bros from Nintendo managed to keep all the charm of the original games and refine them to take full advantage of superior hardware.
