Rating: E for Everyone (ESRB)
Notes: I don’t care if it’s for GBA, I started this in 2007 and have finally finished it. This is meant to be an easy game, more of a starter for younger people or those who are new to Mario games. Also, the graphics will be somewhat custom but will resemble that of SMB3. I’ll post some pictures some other time, and they’ll be good ones. ;)
Story Peach has been kidnapped by Bowser again during his attack on the Mushroom Kingdom; Mario and Luigi must save her! Travel through 4 different worlds defeating enemies, all in the name of rescuing the one we call Toadstool.

Warps Hidden in one level in worlds 1 and 2 are warps to worlds 3 and 4, respectively. They function just as warps in SMB2 do; each is a pipe that ends the level and warps to the specified world. This makes the world you warped to accessible from the world screen (by pressing R) along with the world you skipped. Note that the world you skipped will be accessible, but no levels will be saved as completed.

This is a doomship level. There are no enemies, but the screen will move fast, and there are a lot of ledges, so be careful. Find Kamek, and defeat him by jumping on him. There is also a hidden warp in this level that will take you to a special ? Block that will give you a certain amount of points…
Unlockables World 5: Beat every single level in every world, and then beat level 5-1 (see Kamek Magikoopa boss description for info on 5-1). After all this is completed, you can select World 5 from the World Menu by pressing the R button. NOTE: There are no other levels in World 5 besides 5-1.

A: You can replay all of the levels in Secret Mode.
Q: If I get a Fire Flower and then take damage, will I be Mario or Super Mario?
A: Super Mario.
SECTION IV: MARIO BROS. 2: THE LOST LEVELS Yeah, so they aren’t really “lost” like the Japanese SMB2 was. But I decided the name was symbolic so I think it fits. MB2: The Lost Levels includes 3 additional worlds (Worlds A, B, and C, much like the version from Super Mario All-Stars). Each world has three levels, and levels A-3 and B-3 have a new boss. In level C-3, Dry Bowser emerges from the lava and you can defeat him the same way as defeating normal Bowser, although Dry Bowser is a bit faster. After that, however, the fight isn’t over. Kamek will come out and you will have to fight him (the same way as in 5-1).
There are also new enemies introduced, including Spiny, Buzzy Beetle, and Spiky Goomba, along with the Poison Mushroom (touching it has the same effect as touching an enemy). After defeating Dry Bowser you will be warped back to Peach’s Castle on the World 1 map, with a new path to the other side that leads to a warp pipe going to World A.
SECTION IV: Conclusion Peach is having a party at the castle. She gives you the typical cake and a kiss, and then you are allowed to roam the castle freely. There are many rooms; some might even have a power-up in them. If you go out the castle’s front door a message will ask you if you want to leave the castle. If you say “Yes”, you will go back to the starting point of World 1. There will be a new path to the left leading 2 spots over to Peach’s Castle.
Congratulations, you’ve finished the game. Be sure to play through all of the secrets!
