Game description

Super Mario Bros. For the NES is a game released by Nintendo on September 13, 1985 in Japan, October 18, 1985 in North America, May 15 1987 in Europe and July 1, 1987 in Australia.

The game is the fifth game featuring Mario (Donkey Kong, Donkey Kong Jr. Mario Bros. And Wrecking Crew being released prior). However it is the first Super Mario game in the series and is considered one of the most successful games of all time.

Super Mario Bros. It is the best-selling game for the NES. As one of the launch titles for the North America market, it was also included in four editions. Along with the standalone cartridge, a cartridge containing both the game and Duck hunt was included with every Action NES set.

A third edition, known as Super Mario Bros./Duck Hunt/World Class Track Meet was packaged with the NES Power Set. Finally, in Europe, Super Mario Bros./Tetris/Nintendo World Cup was a cartridge that was included in every NES Top Loader of that region.

It is the original game of the series featuring the Mushroom Kingdom, in which Mario and Luigi must venture through to rescue Princess Peach (known as Princess Toadstool) from the evil Koopa King Bowser. Well known enemies , such as Goomba, Koopa Troopa, Pihranna Plant along others will try to prevent the brother to do.

Super Mario Bros. It is a platformer. Player 1 play as Mario and Player 2 as Luigi, but cannot play together, only in alternate. From left to right, you run through the previously mentioned enemies, collecting coins and power up. Mario can stomp his enemies to defeat them, or push the Koopa shell to hit them. He starts small, and get bigger once he grabs a mushroom. When in these states, he can grab the Fire Flower power up and shoot a fireball at his enemies.

It is also possible to find a star man, which will make Mario or Luigi invulnerable, striking each enemy they touch with it.

If an enemy collides with Mario, he will lose a life if he is small or lose his big/fire flower power up. Falling in a bottomless pit will cost a life no matter the power up.

Super Mario Bros. Features four main themes. The Overworld, the Underground, the Swimming stages and the eight Bowser’s castle. These themes are seen through 8 worlds, separated by 4 levels. It always starts in a overworld level and always end in one of the Bowser castles. In the latter case, you will fight the character itself, only to be revealed to be fake since the true Bowser only resides in World 8-4.

It also features a wide variety of secret area, some accessible by a pipe through the level as well as items that must be struck on to appear.

Super Mario Bros. playthrough

The run uses the USA Version of Super Mario Bros. (The standalone cartridge edition.) The goal is to beat the game without getting hit and get a score of over 999999 in the first run. Each world is explored , one by one, and all secret area and items are found. After beating the game the first time, a second quest is played. Unlike the first run, this one takes all the possible shortcut of the game with the warp zone.

Since Mario and Luigi are exactly the same in every aspect but colour, and since it is not possible for player 1 to play as Luigi, he is not shown in the run. The short demo mode at the beginning of the game is also shown.

No cheats or glitches were used. However, secrets that are advantageous to the player are found. TAS tools were used to create a high-quality gameplay.
