Super Mario Brothers 2

Super Mario Brothers 2 is a video game, the sequel to Super Mario Brothers.

There are actually two Super Mario Brothers 2s. One, released only in Japan, is better known elsewhere as Super Mario Brothers: The Lost Levels. The other is what most people in the United States think of as Super Mario Brothers 2, which is actually a copy of a Japanese game called "Doki Doki Panic" (a loose translation is "Dream Factory"), modified to use Mario sprites and music. This article discusses the American version.

Super Mario Bros 2 is a Nintendo video game, released for the Nintendo Entertainment System, and is the most unusual game in the Mario series. In this game Mario, Luigi, Princess Peach Toadstool, and Toad have to save Subcon from Wart (cousin of Bowser) and his minions.

The game is made up of 7 worlds, each of which contain 3 levels, except for world 7 which only has 2.

You choose from four characters each time you (re)start a level: Mario, Luigi, Princess, and Toad. Each has a special ability: Luigi can jump really high, Princess can remain temporarily suspended in the air, Toad can pick stuff up quickly and is very agile[?], and Mario is balanced.

In each level, there are places where the player can pick up potions, which he can drop make a door appear. If a door is created in the right place, there will be coins planted in the ground which the player can pick up, and sometimes a mushroom which will add another unit to his maximum health and re-fill his health.

At the end of each level, the player is presented with a slot machine-type game. He gets to try as many times as he has coins collected from the level he just completed, and depending on what combinations come up, he can get anywhere from 0 to 10 extra lives for each try.
