Super Mario World: Super Mario Advance 2
23 October 2005
Excerpt: After the success of the first Mario
Advance game, it was obvious that Nintendo was going to release a
sequel. But, to our surprise, they didn't choose the 1988 classic,
Super Mario Bros. 3. Instead, they chose its sequel, 1990's Super Mario
World. This game was much easier to port to the Game Boy Advance, as
opposed to SMB3, but Nintendo didn't stop there. They added some new
features to make the game different.
Excerpt: Nintendo has managed to release at least one Mario game with the launch of each hardware platform, with the exception of the GameCube. But to many, Luigi and Mario are almost(!) synonymous since a mere mention of their names will drum up a chain of fond memories. The two have been featured in some of the most innovative platform titles in the industry. Nowadays, the two terms innovation and platform are almost oxymoronic when put side by side.
Summary: On vacation in Dinosaur Land, Mario and Luigi get word of Bowser-brewed trouble afoot. With help from Yoshi, the helpful little dinosaur who joins them for the first time, they set out to save Princess Peach from the Koopa King. They'll have their work cut out for them as they travel through nine huge worlds to hunt down Bowser and his evil Koopalings: Wendy O., Iggy, Larry, Ludwig Von, Lemmy, Morton Jr., and Roy.
Pros: 40 Tracks, 8
Characters, Battery Backup, Great Game Audio, Spectacular
Conclusion: title that every hardware manufacturer dreams of. Now 11 years and a few system generations later, 16-bit Mario gaming perfection returns in stellar fashion with the release of Super Mario World: Super Mario Advance 2 (SMA2) for the GBA. SMA2 is an almost-direct port of that classic SNES title, containing a few new wrinkles.
Excerpt: The GBA is a great system. Its graphics are crisp (despite the darkness problem), its sound is superb (despite the mono speaker), and (save a lot of third party titles) the game library is phenomenal. But perhaps the best thing that the Game Boy Advance has going for it is the wondrous ability to transport a gamer back to his early days, the glory days of the SNES, even while on a boring bus ride or - not that I condone this (innocent grin) - a crappy class.

Excerpt: Super Mario World was first released on the Super Nintendo Entertainment System (SNES) in the late 80's as the spiritual successor to Super Mario Brothers on the Nintendo Entertainment System (NES) some five years previous. Although the intervening years had seen Super Mario Brothers 2 and 3 released on the NES, Super Mario World was the first Mario game to return to the long-level and exploration format of the original game...
Excerpt: Mario e Luigi estão de volta, voando direitinhos para a lista de obrigatórios! Nesta segunda aventura do nosso amigo Mario no GBA, a Nintendo foi buscar um produto da melhor reserva, mais precisamente aquele que é por muitos considerado o melhor Super Mario 2D de sempre: Super Mario World, originalmente produzido para a Super Nintendo.
