Storyline

Just when Mario rescues Princess Toadstool, King Koopa returns and takes her once again and Mario must go after them. Only now, in this part 2 of the first game, Mario must brave eight of the most perplexed, difficult, and steep levels ever! With new surprises: Luigi can jump very high, much high than Mario, and now there's also a green trampoline that shoots you high into the sky and you can move from place to place before you land, pipes with Pirhana Plants in the ground and in the water, heavy winds that try to push you off cliffs, mind boggling pipe codes jumping codes, and many more! It's gonna take every ounce of power Mario and Luigi have to brave this game. Originally released in Japan only because Japanese players enjoy hard games, and the Super Mario 2 released in America was a remake of a Japanese game called 'Doki Doki World' reworked to fit Mario, Luigi, Toad and Princess. In 1992 when Super Mario All Stars was released, this game was recolored and redone and added with ... Written by Dylan Self <robocoptng986127@aol.com>

Trivia

Nintendo of America followed a strict set of rules during their early years, so as they wouldn't end up like the industry disaster Atari. One of these rules was that they would never "repackage" a game, like Atari had done with many of its titles. Since the Japanese SMB2 was not sufficiently different from the first game, it was never considered for release. An FDS game called "Doki Doki Panic" was rewritten in cartridge form and given a face-lift to be released as the second game in the series to be released on US shores. The concept that the Japanese SMB2 was considered too hard for the American players was a rumor which was started by gaming mags when it was finally released on the compilation cart "Super Mario All-Stars" as a way of boosting sales.

Very good game.
8 July 1999 | by (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) – See all my reviews

This wasn't a popular and well known game. I got the chance to check out this 1986 release, while I was playing the Super Nintendo cart Super Mario All-stars. I don't think this Super Mario was released in the US, but it's definitely from Japan.

According to what I heard, this was the original sequel to Super Mario Bros (1985), but another, very different game was released in the US and across the world, the 1988 version of Super Mario Bros. (the one you can play 4 characters in the world of Subcon). This isn't it.

This game resembles the original Super Mario Bros. so closely, that you can consider practically an extension of the first game. Extra worlds and castles. After several unsuccessful attempts, I finally managed to win this game. I can't believe it continued after world 8-4. World 9 came, then world A, world B, world C, and finally: World D-4. I finally rescued the princess and defeated Bowser for the one hundredth time.

This game is very good! As good as the original game. Far more difficult. It's the hardest Mario I've ever played. Especially with the new wind hazard which makes this game a lot tougher. The new trampolin that rocketed Mario to the stratosphere for several minutes was also incredible.

Great game! Whatever it came from, I don't mind! Excellent!
