Description

Super Mario All-Stars is a collection of previously released Super Mario NES platform games. Each title is presented with its original gameplay and level design, but has been given a makeover in the graphics and sound department. A save option has been added allowing players to store the session data.

Included in Super Mario All-Stars are the following games:
  • Super Mario Bros.: Mario and Luigi must rescue the Princess and the Mushroom Retainers from the evil King Bowser.

  • Super Mario Bros.: The Lost Levels: known as Super Mario Bros. 2 in Japan, this game features the same style of gameplay as the original Super Mario Bros. The game contains poison mushrooms, which will shrink or kill Mario, and new and old enemies, such as Flying Bloopers.

  • Super Mario Bros. 2: also known as Super Mario USA in Japan, Mario and friends discover a mysterious land, called Subcon, that is being destroyed by Wart and his minions. They must rescue this strange land from the tyrant.

  • Super Mario Bros. 3: Bowser, with the help of his Koopalings, takes over the Mushroom Kingdom's 7 lands and turns their kings into creatures. It's now up to Mario and Luigi to save the Mushroom Kingdom

Screenshots

Super Mario All-Stars SNES The nice game selection screen, complete with the original boxes. Here we have Super Mario Bros...
Super Mario All-Stars SNES Weirdo landscape. As this game wasn't intended to be a Mario game, it's excusable.
Super Mario All-Stars SNES These lame-o enemies now can fly (which doesn't make them any more effective against Mario, hehe)
Super Mario All-Stars SNES Player select - you could actually play with four different figures, which really played different.

Alternate Titles

Trivia

A special version of this title was packed in with some Super Nintedo's, the game featured all of the original Mario games featured on the original cart as well as "Super Mario World." Also the game featured a red title screen as opposed to the normal blue one.
