Super Mario Advance review
Good port of a classic Mario game pt1


Lastability: 8/10.
This lasts quite a while. Even though it's watered down from the NES original, this will still take some time to beat because the difficulty is still at a decently challenging level, which is good in a game. Trying to get all the Ace Coins in the game will take some time too. Those buggers are quite hard to find.
Graphics: 10/10.
Completely ripped from the Super Mario All Stars remake of this game, but that's not exactly a bad thing, isn't it?
Sound: 10/10.
A catchy soundtrack that never gets old + 16-bit enhancement + cool sounding sound effects = sheer awesomess. Even the NES original has this.
Gameplay: 7/10.
Sidescrolling gameplay. You walk around levels left or right, but you can't jump on enemies to kill them. Instead you have to throw veggies at them. Just another excuse for kids not to eat their vegetables. The game gets quite difficult at parts, but trust me, the NES original was more frustrating. Nonetheless, this game doesn't play as well as the NES original does. It plays good still so points for that.
Overall: 4.4/5.0
It's a pretty good port of an old NES classic. If your NES or SNES is broken, find yourself a copy of this game. It may be watered down, but it's still worth playing.
