I'm not sure. Some info. The all-stars instruction booklet says it's the same as SMB's. I assume that Bowser comes right after you defeat him in SMB, and takes Peach again. Anyone have a Japanese instruction book and know Japanese? If so, tell me what it says??
- Yup only one new item. This game was basically more levels to SMB with a little new stuff. Anyway, the poisonous mushrooms go to the right out of blocks like mushrooms, but they hurt you when you touch them. Usually they're easy to avoid, but sometimes they trap you in a narrow corridor, or you mistake them for a real mushroom (which is what they intended, ouch). They look like mushroom, except they are kind of squinty eyed and they have purple tops.
Red piranha plant
Blooper (out of water)
- See what I mean. Not much new in SMB2(j). Oh well. These piranha plants don't hide in their pipes like sissies when you go next to them. You have to have good timing get you past these guys. Yeah, that's about it. Yawn!
Notes of interest
Only in America on Mario all-stars as the lost levels
Most levels in a Mario game without a map screen (obscure)
First one-player Mario since MB (not even alternating!)
9th world opens if you get through world 8 without warping (or saving in all-stars)
New green springboards bounce you higher
"Thank you Mario, but our princess is in another castle"
Note: I know it's in SMB too. So sue me.
Have you beaten SMB? Then you've seen this games ending. Even the world's end the same way (with beating Bowser and Toad's message). Sheesh. Talk about unoriginal.
