Super Mario Bros. Series

In Super Mario Bros., Mario and Luigi now live in the Mushroom Kingdom where they must rescue Princess Toadstool from the evil clutches of Bowser, king of the Koopas. By hitting certain blocks, power-ups are released. The Super Mushroom allows Mario to become Super Mario, who is able to destroy certain blocks, but he will shrink back into regular Mario if he is hit by an enemy. In the original SMB, many of Mario's enemies can be defeated only by jumping on top of them, but by collecting the Fire Flower, Mario can throw fireballs, which can be used for the same purpose. The 1-up Mushroom is hidden in diverse locations around the game. If Mario collects this Mushroom he will be granted another life. The Starman makes him temporarily invulnerable.

In Japan, "Mario Boom" developed a strategy guide, which contained exact maps of the game levels and all the hidden extras, quickly became a best-seller. Mario manga and an anime film were produced. In North America, the game helped the Nintendo Entertainment System, the American version of the Famicom, reach a breakthrough in 1986 and resulted in Nintendo mania. This brought the video game crash of 1983 to an end.

Mario later returned in Super Mario Bros. 2 and Super Mario Bros. 3. In Super Mario Bros. 2, Mario and his companions are out to stop Wart. In Super Mario Bros. 3, he and Luigi track down Bowser and the Koopalings to save seven kingdoms and Princess Peach once again. Various suits are available to Mario, which lend him special abilities. For example, the frog suit improves Mario's jumping and swimming capabilities, and the Tanooki suit, which allows Mario to transform temporarily into a statue to hide from enemies and giving him the ability to fly (note that these two abilities are NOT to be used simultaneously).

In New Super Mario Bros., Mario and Luigi have to save Peach once again from Bowser's youngest child, Bowser Jr.. This reuses elements and power-ups from almost all other platformers in the series, such as the Super Mushroom, while adding new ones like the Mega Mushroom.
