Once upon a time, the peaceful Mushroom Kingdom was invaded by the Koopa, a tribe of turtles famous for their dark magic. These terrible terrapins transformed the peace-loving Mushroom People into stones, bricks, and ironically, mushrooms then set their own evil king on the throne. In the wake of the ghastly coup d'état, the beautiful Mushroom Kingdom fell into ruin and despair. It is said that only the daughter of the Mushroom King, Princess Toadstool, can break the evil spell and return the inhabitants of the Mushroom Kingdom to their normal selves. But the King of the Koopas, knowing of this prophecy, kidnapped the lovely Princess and hid her away in one of his castles. Word of the terrible plight of the Mushroom People quickly spread throughout the land, eventually reaching the ears of a humble plumber. The simple, yet valiant Mario vowed to rescue the Princess from King Koopa's tyrannous reign. But can Mario really overcome the many obstacles facing him and become a true hero?

Super Mario Bros. Deluxe is pretty cool. When you play the original Super Mario Bros., it looks just like it did on the NES. The only difference was that the screen had to be downsized. The challenge part of the game is pretty cool too. You have to find all the red coins that have been added to the level, beat a high score, and find a Yoshi egg that was added to the level.
Super Mario Bros. Deluxe was a great idea. The truth is, everyone loves Super Mario Bros., and this game provided a way to play the mega classic on the Game Boy, and it offered a new style of gameplay in the same field. If you like Super Mario Bros., try Super Mario Bros. Deluxe, you'll love it!
Play the original Super Mario Bros, or take the Super Mario Bros. Challenge!
