Super Mario Bros.

Princess Toadstool has been kidnapped by King Koopa and it's up to Mario, a plumber from Brooklyn who finds himself in the Mushroom Kingdom to rescue her. Koopa's army of Goombas, Koopa Troopas, Hammer Brothers, Bloopers and more aren't the only dangers you will face. The Mushroom Kingdom itself can be a dangerous place and one missed step or wrong jump can mean certain doom.

Mario doesn't have to go it on his own though. Besides his brother Luigi (played alternatively by player 2), there are powerups that can be picked up that give you added powers such as the mushroom letting you get hit without dying and flower allowing you to shoot fireballs at enemies. Most enemies can be defeated by jumping on them or by destroying a brick they are walking over.

There are many secret areas that can be found, often by going down found throughout levels. They don't all lead somewhere though! Super Mario Bros. boasts 8 worlds with 4 stages each and each world featuring a showdown with King Koopa at the end.
