Storyline

Plumber brothers Mario and Luigi from Brooklyn have just arrived in a strange realm called the Mushroom Kingdom. It was ruled by Princess Toadstool and her faithful Mushroom people. But one day, evil cast a shadow over the land and the evil King Bowser Koopa showed up with his army of Goombas, Spinies, Flying Koopas, and other evil creatures. King Koopa kidnapped Princess Toadstool and trapped her faithful Mushroom People in seven of his castles. So Mario and Luigi must brave deep and dangerous waters, jump from tree to tree (don't look down!), and watch their steps in the dark evil castles filled with fire balls and lava pits and must use their magic powers to defeat the evil King Koopa and rescue the Princess.

The best of the best.
31 December 2001 | by (Akron, Ohio) – See all my reviews

Despite constant sequels and updates, nothing beats the original. Mario had other games before this, but this is the first real Super Mario. Everyone knows the point of the game, it's been copied so many times since being released. You must jump on turtles, goombas etc, find mushrooms and fire flowers, and eventually make your way to King Koopa. Although many claim that the sequels are better games, I personally think this is the best of the series. Simple action, catchy music, and still pretty good graphics keep this one a winner.
