A 2D platformer and first entry on the SNES in the Super Mario franchise, Super Mario World follows Mario as he attempts to defeat Bowser's underlings and rescue Princess Peach from his clutches. The game features a save system, a less linear world map, an expanded movement arsenal and numerous new items for Mario, alongside new approaches to level design and art direction.

Love the art direction and style. Great music, tight controls, pretty tough difficulty. Story is wholesome and the bosses are creative. The game oozes creativity with every pixel. Water levels still suck though, and that forest world was dumb. There is a lot of repetition in the bosses as well
Still really good, but in most ways that it's different from SMB3, I find that I like it less. I don't even like Yoshi as a powerup very much, especially compared to the weird assortment of powers in SMB3 that could be stored for later use. He even makes the music worse!
