Description

The Mushroom Kingdom has been invaded by the Koopa, a tribe of turtles who possess dark magic. Their king Bowser has transformed all its inhabitants into stones, bricks, and mushrooms; he has also captured Princess Toadstool. She is the only one who can break the evil spell. Imprisoned in a castle deep in Bowser's new found kingdom, Mario, a humble plumber, hears of the tragedy and sets out to free her.

Run, jump, and throw fireballs to defeat the evil Bowser and his minions.

The game features a remake of the original 1985 game, a challenge mode, and versus game option. Also included are records, an album, and a toy box. The Lost Levels is also included, but has to be unlocked first.

Trivia

Version differences

You cannot see as much of a scene at one time as on the NES version because the Game Boy Color does not have the same dimensions as a standard television set.
