While Mario, Luigi, and Princess Toadstool are vacationing in Dinosaur Land, Bowser shows up and once again abducts the Princess. So Mario and Luigi, with the help of their new friend Yoshi, can soar to new heights to send Bowser and his seven kids away once and for all. Hopefully this time, Mario can obtain a cape from a feather and soar even higher, and must stop new enemies like Chargin' Chuck, Magikoopa, Fishbone, and more. You must brave daring areas like Yoshi's Island, Donut Plains, Chocolate Island, Forest of Illusion, Butter Bridge, Cheese Bridge, Vanilla Dome, Cookie Mountain, Soda Lake, and Valley of Bowser and reach Bowser's castle and stop that reptile yet another time!

At one point, the design team were going to put a "No Yoshi Allowed" sign in the game. Instead, they made an animation of Mario jumping off of Yoshi when entering haunted houses, fortresses, and castles. See more »

9 flat Koopas out of 10

I've played this game more times than I can count and it just gets better and better. There's really not much to say; Bowser has gotten his reptile hands on Princess Peach once again and it's up to Mario to save the day. Yoshi also turns up as do a whole bunch of Yoshi eggs and unbelievably cute Yoshi babies. On his quest Mario must battle 8 bosses and destroy their castles. There are also hidden levels which can only be found through thorough searches in the other levels. Endlessly re-playable, fun and more addictive than heroine (without being nearly as dangerous... I think *twitches*), Super Mario World is a great game with a goofy sense of humour and very cute, colourful visuals. It is very user friendly and not all that complicated, and a great way to spend a couple of hours a rainy Sunday.
