Super Mario Bros. (1985) on NES was amazing. Endless excitement through challenging levels and cool music to keep you up and going. The next two sequels were great as well, but it was in 1991 when Super NES gave the opportunity to game designers to take full advantage of better sound and graphics. Super Mario World was one of those games! Super Mario World has outstanding graphics, sound and control in the game play. Much more enemies and traps were added to this game keeping the same world concept of Super Mario Bros. 3, where you are allowed to complete levels in each world and go back. This powerful release on Super Nintendo quickly sold millions as fans had never experienced such a powerful, action-packed Mario game in history.
Introducing, Yoshi. Yep, a green dinosaur who is Mario and Luigi's friend- feed him berries to get bonuses, use him to cast enemies out your way and use Yoshi to walk through hard to reach areas. Alternatively, there are other color Yoshis that do different things than the green Yohsi.
Overall- Super Mario World is great and still holds it's trophies to this day.
Music- Very calming, jazz with a twist of calypso and a dash of salsa. Koji Kondo made wonders in the music of Super Mario World.
Graphics- Excellent background design, character details and smooth motion. All colors are well put in this game.
Sound- No more harsh synthesized lead sounds when jumping or skidding. Super Nintendo allowed quality rendition of sounds, hence, bringing more excitement to what you hear while playing.
Controls- Very convenient and responsive on the call. The two top buttons on the Super NES allow convenient left and right scrolling in the level, allowing you to see what's ahead. Pressing the select button on pause takes you out the level, as a lifesaver. One new feature added to the Mario game.
I love Super Mario World. I will love it forever, and ever. I'll be playing it even when I have great grandchildren.
