Super Mario Bros 3 – An Old-School Classic
Super Mario Bros. 3 is an old-school platform game designed and developed by Nintendo for the NES. It was first released for home consoles worldwide in Japan on March 23, 1988, North America in March 1990 and Europe sometime before the fall of 1992. Although not well-known outside Japan, this classic video game has been translated into numerous languages as well, so it’s good to know that it’s enjoyed all over the world.
The basic premise of the Super Mario Bros., which is a classic Japanese cartoon series starring Mario, has always resonated with children. The main characters in the story are Mario (the plumber) and Princess Toadstool (his faithful companion). Together they embark on a quest to defeat King Koopa, a villain who wishes to rule the world. In many versions of the story, Mario and Toadsworth also have their own rival, Luigi.
Like most games, the mechanics of the Super Mario Bros., are simple enough to understand, but they’re complex enough that many children can figure out the tricks on their own without any help from the game. The game starts with Mario and Luigi being kidnapped by an evil wizard, Bowser. After Mario and Luigi save the princess, they find themselves in the Mushroom Kingdom, where they meet up with many other characters, including a frog (Koopa), a frog (Vegeta) and a turtle (Yoshi).
When you’ve finished playing Super Mario Bros., you’ll be rewarded with a title screen. This will contain a number of icons that represent what you have done during the game.
After you have beaten the game, you’ll receive an additional bonus, called the “Super Star” when you complete the level. If you are playing the original version of the game, these stars are located at the end of each level. However, in many later versions of the game, they appear later in the game. In order to get one, you must collect all the stars in each level. In addition to receiving a star after you have completed all levels, some of them also feature a time limit, making collecting them more fun than usual.
Like many games in the Mario series, Super Mario Bros. is simple and easy to learn, but can be challenging to master. So if you want to add fun to your next family outing, get the game and give it a try.
