In this game you are playing the role of the Mario. You are going through the Mushroom Kingdom, surviving the forces of the antagonist Bowser, and saving Princess Toadstool. Mario should reach the flag pole at the end of each level to win the game.

There is a lot of coins scattered around for Mario to collect and special bricks marked with a question mark, which may reveal more coins or a special item when Mario hits them. Other bricks may also contain some coins or rare items so if you have enough time, try to hit them as well. If Mario Mario eats a Super Mushroom Super Mushroom, he becomes a Super Mario Super Mario — he grows to double his size and gains the ability to break bricks above him. If he gets hit in this mode he will turn back to regular Mario instead of dying. If Mario eats a Fire Flower Fire Flower, he becomes a Fire Mario FireMario — in this form, Mario gains the ability to throw bouncing fireballs from his hands. If Mario touches a bouncing Super Star (a rare power-up), he turns into Star Mario. In this form Mario is invulnerable to nearly everything and he can kill enemies with a simple touch. This is a temporary form so use your newly obtained powers quickly!

There are 3 different warp zones. The one in 1-2 takes you to worlds 2,3,and 4. The other two are in 4-2, which takes you to worlds 5,6,7,and 8.

Anybody know of any hidden power-up boxes or anything in 8-4?? Hard to make it through the entire level without a single power-up lol. Obviously besides the one right by the piranha plant in the air

Bob, they can't change it because if they did it wouldnt be like the original Mario. So don't change it.

If you try the randomly generated, it only lasts about 1600 or so blocks before the flag pole generates. Can this be fixed, please? Also in response to asdlfhmie there is a different warp zone in 4-2 that can take you to 8-1. Search it up on google.
