New Super Mario Bros.

released on May 15, 2006

New Super Mario Bros. is a side-scrolling 2.5D action-adventure platformer game for the Nintendo DS, starring Mario and Luigi. The game features a solo story mode with Mario or Luigi, a two-player wireless game Mario Vs. Luigi, as well as a minigame mode for up to four players. The gameplay of New Super Mario Bros. is very much like that of the classic 2D platformers, mostly Super Mario Bros. and Super Mario Bros. 3, and substantially builds upon them to create gameplay both classic and contemporary. As the game is on DS, the touch screen allows players to store an additional power-up and view the distance still to go in a level.

My first Mario game. The Multiplayer mode slapped too.

Easily my favorite entry in this series. It kinda gets forgotten about because they released so many games in this style in such quick succession, but the first game was so fresh and exciting when it came out, being that it was the return of 2D Mario. Even now, it's still the most enjoyable one for me to go back to (though I still enjoy the rest of the series).

they really said "lets make him FUCKING HUMONGOUS"

Best of the new soups. It feels the most unique and the blue shell rocks. A slight step above its sequels.

Amazing way to modernise the Super Mario Bros series and utilise the unique features the DS has to offer. I hold a lot of nostalgia to this game due to the incredibly fun and addictive levels and gameplay as well as the Mario Vs. Luigi multiplayer mode in which I spent hours playing with friends on.
