Super Mario World: Super Mario Advance 2 Review

Like I said, I’ve been playing a lot of Mario since Mr. Julian Kay lent me a bunch of his games. Next is a classic and a gruelling game: Super Mario World: Super Mario Advance 2.

Console: GBA
Super Mario World? As in for the SNES Yep, the port
..Advance 2? If you recall, Super Mario Advance is the remake of Mario 2 and Super Mario Advance 3 is a remake of Yoshi’s Island. So therefore…

Fun Fact Super Mario World was one of the first ever video games I played. It is also one of my favourite Mario games. I didn’t own it, but a friend did and oh BOY did I suck at it! I could hardly get past the very first level!

Giant Bullet Bill on the first level? You’re having a giggle mate.

I thought, I’m an adult now – I CAN DO THIS!

Getting a stomp on

I’m an adult, I have better motor control than I used to! Maybe I won’t die all the time!

Oh my GOD, I was so wrong.

Super Mario World Death

So much of this

Super Mario World Game Over

And that

Every single level is the most awful, hardest and unfair level you have ever played in your life. Until you finally beat it and move onto the next level. I think I maybe didn’t die in 10% of the levels. But for every level I did die in, I died 90% of the time – and in the later levels, 99% of the time.

This game, you never get good at it – you just start to suck less. It’s a really hard game!

I feel really bad, because mostly I played as Luigi who can float slightly so makes jumping puzzles (of which there are a lot) easier.

So, even though I like Luigi more, I kept killing him because I am really bad at playing this game.

I really wanted to finish this game, especially since it had these cute little guys in it

but then there’s this level

Super Mario World Wendy's Castle

Wendy’s Castle oh boy

And I just couldn’t do it any longer. Oh wow. I was beat.

All in all, great game, great port but fuck it is difficult!!

  1. […] this isn’t Super Mario World (which is REALLY HARD!) and you can probably get past it if you’re just patient […]
