Mario's Game Boy Advance debut gives gamers two games in one: a souped-up version of Super Mario Bros. 2 and an action-packed four-player version of the original Mario Bros. arcade game. Whether you're playing alone or with three of your friends, Super Mario Advance is the perfect game to break in your new Game Boy Advance!

There are seven worlds to conquer, each one stocked with strategically placed Red Coins to find. This is a new feature only available in the Game Boy Advance version of the game, and it's a daunting task to find them all. Even if you manage to make it through all seven worlds, your mission won't come to an end. Your next goal will be to complete the Yoshi Challenge. Two Yoshi Eggs are hidden in each level, and you can try to find them all in any order you'd like.

Super Mario Bros. 2 was first released for the original NES in 1988, and now it's better than ever on Game Boy Advance. Mario, Luigi, Peach and Toad adventure through an incredible fantasy world on a quest to save the day, with little more than vegetables with which to defend themselves. The basic gameplay mechanics are the same in the Game Boy Advance version, but new enemies, better graphics and tougher challenges give the adventure a completely new feel. - Review provided by




Four playable characters including Mario, Luigi, Peach, and Toad.

IGN Pocket:

"It's about time for Super Mario 2 to come back, as a good many gamers will be playing it for the first time. With a revamped SMB2 and a awesome four-player version of Mario Bros, this is still a great package... If you do pick up SMA, I can pretty much promise you won't regret it for a second."


Game Spot:
"Those interested in single-player platformer gameplay, albeit with relatively loose controls, will find Super Mario Bros. 2 both unique and highly challenging, while those looking to link up their GBAs and taking part in multiplayer action will crave the lively, fast-paced gameplay in Mario Bros..."


Planet GameCube:
"Mario Advance's presentation provides easy navigation. Graphics and animation are crisp... Many thoroughly enjoyed the original, and novices should have the opportunity to enjoy its second reincarnation. Its portability and new collecting aspects will spark new life into the aging level design for Gurus."
