While I was away crusading against the mystery alien Tatanga in Sarasa Land, an evil creep took over my castle and put the people of Mario Land under his control with a magic spell. This intruder goes by the name of Wario. He has been jealous of my popularity ever since we were boys, and has tried to steal my castle many times. It seems he has succeeded this time.
Wario has scattered the 6 Golden Coins from my castle all over Mario Land. These Golden Coins are guarded by those under Wario's spell. Without these coins, we can't get into the castle to deal with Wario.
We must collect the 6 coins, attack Wario in the castle, and save everybody!

Overview: Super Mario Land 2: 6 Golden Coins was very enjoyable to play. The game reminded me of a mix between the original Super Mario Bros. and Super Mario World. The Super Mario World elements included the ability to fly, the spin jump, and the start-select trick after you've beaten a level. It reminded me of the original because it had a lot of the same foes. The way Mario was drawn reminded me of Super Mario Bros. 2. The gambling game within the game was a really fun feature as well. Super Mario Land 2: 6 Golden Coins is a great addition to the Super Mario series, and I recommend you give it a go.
