Storyline

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!

The best SNES game ever
15 January 2000 | by Op_PrimeSee all my reviews

Super Mario World is the best game ever made for the Super Nintendo system. The game play is good and the graphics are an improvement over the original Nintendo games. It combines old and new powers for Mario and Luigi. The mushroom and fire flower are back. The new ones include the feather which give you the cape and a balloon which makes you large and able to float up. There is also a new character, Yoshi! So, this game is pretty good and worth playing.
