Super Mario World, is the fifth Mario game in chronological order. The game centers on the quest of Mario and Luigi to save the Dinosaur Land from Bowser, the series' antagonist. The two brothers must travel across seven worlds to restore Dinosaur Land.
Super Mario World is one of the best side-scrolling games of all time and if you have one game for the SNES this is it. It is just a fun game that gamers of all ages can enjoy. I should know, because Super Mario World was the first video game I ever played, and let me tell you it was some experience. Looking back on the game all these years later and my stance still hasn't changed a single bit. Super Mario World for the Super Nintendo is a keeper.
Gameplay & Graphics: The animation of this game is some of the best you'll see for the SNES and is certainly worth noting when reviewing this game. For a game of its age the game is very crisp in its presentation and the gameplay is simple enough for anyone of ages 5 and above to easily grasp, yet don't let that fool you, for the levels of this game are complex enough to entertain seasoned gamers (or parents) who wish to look back at the classic days of gaming. It is a vast improvement over the original side-scrolling Mario adventure on the NES and offers hours of entertainment due to its high number of levels.
Entertainment Value: Super Mario World is just plain harmless fun that is fun for gamers of all ages and it should not be forgotten. I first played this game at an age of five and I know it is the cause of my interest in video gaming so I owe it much thanks. Playing it now I still recognize it as a fine achievement in the history of video gaming and that it deserves attention.
So my stance remained firm that Super Mario World for the SNES is perhaps the best game for the SNES, and certainly one of the best family games of all time.
Mario and his dinosaur companion, Yoshi, are looking for the dinosaur eggs Bowser has stolen and placed in seven castles. Many secret exits aid Mario in finding his way to Bowser's castle, completing 74 areas and finding all 96 exits. With multiple layers of 3-D scrolling landscapes, find items including, a feather that gives Mario a cape allowing him to fly. and a flower so he can shoot fireballs. For any Mario fan this game is a must.
