Re-released in celebration of the 25th anniversary of the Nintendo entertainment system console, Super Mario Bros. brings you back to the first epic battle between Mario and Bowser. Relive the mushroom-eating, Koopa-stomping action, and Mario's merciless jumping as you enjoy a great classic from the early days of Nintendo. Comes in a standard Game Boy Advance box featuring the classic artwork of the original game.
Admit it. You played it. You loved it. It might have been that first game that made you realize what was coming in this little hobby of ours. This is a perfect port of the original Super Mario Bros. Every last mushroom and goomba is accounted for, and you'll feel yourself slipping into a blissful recollection of your early days as a gamer. Just don't expect anything revolutionary here. The closest thing to newness is the ability to link up with another GBA to play with a friend, but don't worry. Two-player is still available on just one unit. If you're looking for innovation, check out the excellent Deluxe version on Game Boy Color. But for purists, this is the cream of the crop in retro goodness. So, if you're willing to drop the 20 gold coins for this one, enjoy your trip down memory lane.

This is such a small complaint that it is almost not worth mentioning, and certainly not worth taking a star off for.
If you're like me, you like this Class NES series, and so you kept one of your older Game Boy advances, or a DS that is backward compatible.
I've got Zelda on the way, and already have Ice Climber and Castlevania. You young kids can keep the 3D games with the great graphics; to me, they are just not fun to play, no matter how great that look. Games like this had graphics that were JUST good enough, and the designers put their efforts into level design rather than super graphics and sound.
Super Mario Bros. is one of those old games that stands the test of time.
I wish they'd bring back Rygar with a save option, and I'd be happy as a clam.
It was going so fast that i would run out of time in the middle of the mission
I tried another game and noticed the difference
