All game lovers old and new alike are excited about the new revelation by Nintendo Game boy about bringing the pioneer gaming character, Super Mario, back to life. Since its inception in 21st April 1989, it has been a game we have all played at some point and owe our now gaming love and or addictions to this great game. Its re incarnation is not all that different from the Super Mario Bros. game-play (left/right to move, A to jump, hold B to run faster) and even though the quest is a little different and challenging than picking up, or jumping for coins, the game is still as thrilling and exciting.
Super Mario Land ROM is available as a download at the bottom of this page.
The gamer takes on the role of Mario, just as is in the previous game and the goal or objective is to conquer a mysterious space man (an alien who emerges from a dark cloud) . But for motivation a spanner is thrown in the works and there is a damsel in distress who is the reason you battle Tatanga (the space man), who has hypnotized the people of Sarsaland and wants to forcefully wed the princess. Princess Daisy (the damsel in distress) awaits your heroic rescue after you find out about her abduction and her whereabouts in the Chai kingdom and you have to transverse the four worlds, in the game, and try get closer to her as you go through the three levels in each world to save her and restore peace and order all over the kingdom. The setting is a little different from what we might remember from mushroom land but it is nothing short of thrilling and captivating and is sure to have you playing for hours on the first ever Mario adventure on a hand held console. You can defeat enemies, but not all, by jumping and stepping on them and a mushroom helps you grow and helps you survive a hit from the enemy while a star grants you invincibility for a short period of time. The flower on the other hand allows you to shoot super balls in order to take down the enemy that consist of flying stone heads, giant crabs, Koopa Troopas and hungry sharks.
Having completed a level, the non boss levels, you chose on one of two exit options and one leads to a mini game (bonus game). At the end of some battles, the boss battles, there is a switch that can kill the boss and you all have to do is get to it and use it. The journey is treacherous and takes you over land, underwater or in the air but the princess needs to be saved.
With the re-vamp comes quality and the developers have gone a mile further to ensure the game is available to everyone with ease.
