Super Mario Land 2: 6 Golden Coins
The biggest change you may notice if you are coming from the first Super Mario Land is how much bigger everything is, making it much easier to tell what's happening on the Game Boy screen. The graphics really are a step up and everything looks as smooth as it plays. The play control has also really improved and is able to deliver the platforming action you expect in a Mario title. It's a fairly short and easy game though and can be beaten in a single sitting. It's great for killing time in an afternoon but it isn't a lengthy adventure like many other Mario games. Rest assured you will still be able to save your progress.
