Exclamation Super Mario Brothers 3

Super Mario Brothers III
A Review by Cam3ron36

Developers: Nintendo, R&D4
Publisher: Nintendo
Platform: Nintendo NES
Genre: Platformer
Players: 1 or 2


Alright then. Mario bros 3, The sequel to the hit super mario bros an mario bros 2., we all know it, the classic platformer where you go through 8 worlds with Mario & Luigi.
The story: So it's 1989, Everyone is enjoying their awesome platformers; "Mario bros" and "Mario bros 2" of course we all should know japan enjoyed a seperate mario 2 later released here as "The lost levels." This caused some tedious debate and confusion, was it mario bros 3? it was called the lost levels but what we didn't know, or maybe some new that japan was holding our beloved mario 3 captive as we sat and waited for it.
A certain, special movie came out, and everyone saw the nintendo sponsored movie; "The wizard." In the end of the movie, 'Voila' theres mario 3 brought out into startum in the midst of a movie, we knew we were praised.

Now an uncommon thing here, a sequel that outsells it's prodescessors, and after a game like mario 2, you'd think sales would decline.(I'm not saying mario 2 was bad, but a lot of people did not like the change) but like something like the nintendo wii, this game was flying off the shelves as soon as it got to the store, it is probably one of the easiest retro games to find due to it's massive sales. You could not meet someone that hasn't heard of this game that is above 10 years of age. Now tat's not all, it was also released on Super Mario All-stars for snes, you know the one with the compilation of all the Nes mario games? And of course it was released on the wii VC.

Now as they returned mario to it's original form, it was wildly popular due to new worlds, new enemies, new items and a map screen with secrets around every corner, mini games and alternate paths. It is a mario fans dream
You traveled through eight worlds again with five lives, each world had about 10-15 levels and if you did die, if you beat a castle, a keypad was broken revealing a shortcut for if you did lose all of your lives. Of course there was bonus games and 1-ups to give you extra lives.
Little hammer bros traveled around the mapscren and if you ran into one, you had to fight it. This usually meant you got a hammer to breakdown rock to reveal a new path again




You travel fom deserts to winter worlds to grasslands to flying airships, castles, skies... anything you can think of really in this wacky game. But really, who doesn't like a good game of mario bros 3? even non retro fans enjoy this, almost everyone likes this game, we are talking 95 percent of the world population.

The secrets in the game... One of the biggest secrets everone knows was used as a substitute for saving as it was not possible on the nes.(although it is in all-stars ) I'm talking of course, of those flutes. There are three in the game, most know where the second is from "The Wizard," but there was no means of finding the other two back then, you had to figure it out yourself.
For the first flute: you had to go into level 1-3 and push downwards on a levitating white block for about ten seconds until you fell through behind it(doing this on any white platform allowed you to go behind scenery. Anyways, you could then run fast enough before you popped back out in front of the scenery. You run to the black backgrounded ending, you could then run behind it and go to a door that led you to a mushroom house that gives you a flute.

The second whistle involved going to the first castle, getting a acape and flying above the roof to a secret room with a flute in it.
The third and final flute was on the world 2 mapscreen. You have to get to the top right corner of the map, then use a hammer to reveal a secret area saying III, you fight two hammer bros firing fire, you then have the third and final flute.

Along the way in mario 3, you have to fight all of bowsers minions in airships. So you go through the scrolling airship levels full of bullet bills and wrench guys until you come to a silver pipe then leading you to a boss level. Finally you have to beat the crap out of the bosses by jumping on them to get the wand, you save the king and get a note from peach, enclosed is always a special item.




the sound and graphics were great for their time and it was hard to believe this was a nes game. I'll give you a couple of samples of music




Well, I think I've covered everything, I could go into my favourite levels, but really, I like most of em' because it's a truly great game and it will live on forever.

Thanks for reading, please comment if you feel the need

Nice review. It covered a lot. There are some grammatical errors, but I can overlook them. Well done.

I suppose so, but it's still hard not to want to give it a 10.

It's a great game, but still not the greatest in my books, probably the greatest sidescroller in my books but bucky o hare was pretty good...
