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.

Super Mario World's gameplay, presentation, secretive design, and its 2-player mode are all first-rate. Honestly, I like it better than Super Mario Bros. 3 because I'm more familiar with its layout. I adore Bros. 3 like a son, but I still have the foggiest memory where most of its secrets are located, and I'm also in no way an expert at it. However, I can confidently say that I know Super Mario World like the back of my fat, white hand. I know every secret, every trick of the trade, and exactly what item to use at the right time. I can beat the game in less than an hour with little lives lost, and I've got a few friends to back this fact up. Goddammit, I love this game, what else can I say?
