Super Mario Land is the first Mario's outing on the Game Boy. It is a side-scrolling platformer much in the vein of the previous Super Mario Bros. This time, Mario must save Princess Daisy, rather than Princess Toadstool, from her kidnapper Tatanga, a mysterious spaceman. The game follows largely the same formula of its aforementioned predecessor, with Mario defeating enemies by jumping on them and collecting coins and power ups by hitting floating blocks, with each world leading up to a boss fight which is defeated using by collapsing the floor. A unique feature of this installment is two scrolling shoot-'em-up levels, the first of which Mario pilots a submarine, and the second an aeroplane.

Really nothing special outside of being the first portable Mario game. It exists and blends in with most of the other 2D Mario games. 4/10

A short but fun portable Mario game.

Entrou no Switch Online e joguei. eu achei as fases mt interessantes pra um jogo de gameboy, mas ele no geral é bastante curto. o gráfico (mesmo sendo de um console limitado) é bem fraquinho, isso comparado com Super Mario land 2, por exemplo, que consegue trazer sprites muito melhores. mas de qualquer forma, é um jogo ok.
e a física é péssima nossa senhora.

Super Mario Land could have just been a port of the first game but instead, Nintendo created an original story with new gameplay mechanics that make it a worthwhile entry in the series. Certain additions like Princess Daisy would go on to be regular occurrences in the rest of the series. Overall this is a fun installment in the series; it isn't anything amazing but is certainly better than it should be and definitely worth playing.

Nintendo deveria agradecer a Deus todas as noites por mudarem de mario land pra tetris como jogo incluso .

A passable title, Super Mario Land is a mini Mario adventure. It concludes better than the original Super Mario Bros., but has its flaws here and there. The falling physics are atrocious in how fast and unforgiving they are. This affects the overall experience due to how deadly it can get. The game is fairly generous with regards to how many lives there are. The differences in the enemies is noticeable in how weird they can get. For example, Koopas like enemies explode like bombs. There are some shmup sections that are pretty neat. It culminates into a pretty neat climax.

It's a decent change of pace, but there are certainly better Mario games to play. I'd mainly just recommend this for people invested in the history of the Mario games. It's short and sweet, but nothing all too remarkable.
