Once upon a time, there was a peaceful world called Sarasaland. In this world there were 4 kingdoms named Birabuto, Muda, Easton, and Chai. One day, the skies of Sarasaland were suddenly covered by a huge black cloud. From a crack in this cloud, the unknown space monster Tatanga emerged to try to conquer Sarasaland. Tatanga hypnotized the people of all the kingdoms so that he could control them in any way he liked. In this way he took over Sarasaland.
Now, he wants to marry Princess Daisy of Sarasaland and make her his queen. Mario came to know these events, and has started on a journey to the Chai Kingdom where Princess Daisy is held captive, in order to restore peace to Sarasaland.
Can Mario defeat Tatanga, release the people from his interstellar hypnosis, and rescue Princess Daisy? It's all up to you and Mario's skill. Go for it Mario!!

Overview: Super Mario Land
was probably the second most played game on the Game Boy. The first being, of course, Tetris
. This was a lot like the other Mario games. There were, however, a few differences, new features and moves. If you like Mario, this is a must play.
Directions: Rescue Princess Daisey from the clutches of evil. Classic Mario platforming action!
In Super Mario Land, the turtles, instead of letting you use their shells as weapons, blew up after landing on them. There were also a good many new enemies. Your fireballs had a different flight pattern as well. Instead of just bouncing along the ground, they will just take one bounce and fly high into the air. You also get to drive a submarine in one of the levels, it's pretty cool.
