Back then, you couldn't save the game anywhere you wanted. If you wanted to quit, you would have to start all over again.
If you have a Wii, you can save your game anywhere you want, no more starting over. SMW is a timeless classic SNES game, it was fun
back then and still is today.
If you purchase the online code from Amazon, no more waiting for your game to arrive in the mail. You receive your game immediately.
Also, the price is cheaper than buying it from the Wii virtual console. On the Wii VC, it's 800 Wii pts.($8.00) You can't pay the exact amount of $8.00. You have to purchase Wii points from 1000 pts-5000 pts. Let me tell you, SMW is one of the best SNES games ever
made. If you're a Retro gamer like myself, what are you waiting for?
Fall 1991. It was a great time to be a video gamer. For the past 5 years, the NES was on top of the world and home to so many memorable games. While the Sega Master System was its rival, it enjoyed more of a cult following as the majority of video games were released for the NES. But like all good things, they come to an end as Sega ushered in a brand new console. The Sega Genesis, released in 1989, featured new technology and more horsepower to display flashier games and brought a new video games icon to rival Mario and Nintendo. Nintendo responded by releasing the Super Nintendo Entertainment System and a brand new Mario game (Super Mario World.) This was the game packed in with the console and was responsible for maintaining the large fan base the original NES had built up for years. To say this made an impact to gamers would be an understatement.
Hot off the heels of the excellent Super Mario Bros. 3, Super Mario World was the sequel that showcased the SNES's graphical prowess and ability to display new effects. 8 new worlds to explore (plus the hidden star portals) and 99 levels lie in wait for gamers to explore. It introduced new enemy characters as well as the lovable dinosaur Yoshi. And above all, it was extremely fun to play. From the graphics to the music and the easy to get into controls, this game continued the proud tradition of the revered Mario games and set standards for all future platform games to come.
While there are many ways to track down this title (the original SNES cartridge, the Game Boy Advance title and through Nintendo's Virtual Console service for those who have a Wii that is online), any true gamer has played this many, many times and can tell you that it was one of the finest games to ever come out from Nintendo.
The plot in Super Mario World is (what else) Princess Peach has been kidnapped by that dastardly Bowser and it's up to Mario and his brother Luigi to save the day again. This time they'll travel through Dinosaur Island on a quest to the Valley of Bowser to stop the Koopa King. Along the way they'll also encounter Yoshi who is going after Bowser to save some of the dinosaur eggs. Mario has never been much for plot and story, and in the year 1991 you probably didn't find too many story driven games as it is. Mario has always been about pushing gameplay.
Super Mario World more than pushes gameplay. As the original Super Mario Bros. did on the Nintendo, Super Mario World redefined gaming for a whole generation.Read more ›
