With my Nintendo 3DS in hand I was on my weekly visit to the Nintendo eShop to scout out the latest downloadable releases, when I happened to come cross this retro piece, Super Mario Bros. 2 for the NES. This can only mean one thing...yours truly dropping to his knees and bowing repeatedly in a "I'm not worthy!" manner. Think those two guys from Wayne's World when they meet Alice Cooper and the picture will become crystal clear.

The story goes that Mario has a dream that a magical world is under threat from a bad guy named Wart, who absolutely detests vegetables. My guess is he never had parents to discipline him in the food intake department. Moving along a smidge, after Mario wakes up he comes across a cave which happens to be the entrance to...the very same world he saw in his dream. You sure you actually got out of bed that morning, Mario?!

SMB2 consists of 20 levels stretched across seven zones. Each level throws up colourful environments, tricky enemies and jumps, and a host of nifty stuff to pick up, use and collect; all of which provide the healthy servings of platforming thrills that the Super Mario games have been renowned for over the years. But that's not all. By finding and using potions near vegetable patches, you can enter bonus areas and pick up coins to use for the interesting if rather random after-level bonus games for the chance to pick up more lives. The enemies you face include the lame-excuse-for-a-phantom-mask Shyguys, and the short fused walking Bob-ombs, both of which have become popular bad guys who have appeared in future Mario games.

Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
[UPDATE: Exciting news for those who love this game! "Super Mario Bros. 2" has been vindicated at LONG LAST! Nintendo has officially revealed that "Super Mario Bros. 2" began life as a prototype sequel to the original "Super Mario Bros.", even before "The Lost Levels", and was the intended second game in the series from the start. Apparently Nintendo were having issues with the prototype (as they were trying to implement co-op game play, a series mechanic that would not see fruition until "New Super Mario Bros. Wii" from 2009, and developed "The Lost Levels" and published that on the Famicom Disk System in the mean time. Fuiji Television approached Nintendo to develop a product for their 1987 Dream Event, so Nintendo took the existing Mario 2 sequel and released it in conjunction with Fuiji's promo event.

However, the important part is that not only was "Super Mario Bros. 2" a Mario game right from the start, Miyamoto and his team began developing the game BEFORE "The Lost Levels" as the intended sequel to "Super Mario Bros."! So for all you out there who say "Super Mario 2" isn't even a real Mario game, you have been proven wrong. Not only that, Miyamoto himsmelf said in E3 2012 that, along with "Super Mario Bros.", "Super Mario Bros. 2" is his favorite game in the entire Mario series. Can't get much higher praise than that!

When "Super Mario Brothers 2" was released in the US in 1988, the game became an instant hit with gamers. What makes SMB2 so strange is how utterly and drastically different the game really is from its predecessor, Super Mario Bros., which is one of the pivotal cornerstones of the gaming industry.
