New Super Mario Bros

Mario, Luigi, Princess Peach and Bowser are now a classic. They have been in all gamers’ lives since the very start of the video game story. Since then, the franchise has grown enormously, even to the point where the red-hatted, moustache plumber is one of the most recognizable characters in pop culture nowadays. One of the games that helped our beloved plumber to get extremely famous was New Super Mario Bros, released in 2006 for Nintendo DS.

Everyone knows that this is one of the best games ever released under Mario’s name, as it’s incredibly faithful to Mario’s roots, and it got released on one of the most successful consoles of all time, the Nintendo DS. Still, this game has a lot of details that went under the table. Let’s check them out.

A More Dynamic Mario

The “New” in New Super Mario Bros isn’t just a marketing move. In this case, Nintendo revamped everything people knew about Super Mario Bros and gave it much more dynamism. Now, the game isn’t limited to a set of obstacles Mario has to sort out; there are new biomes, a new lot of stages that make the game look more like Super Mario World, new objects, and even new collectibles, a thing we didn’t have back then.

The desert, the jungle, the snow mountains. They all are emblematic and work as a charm to create a whole world that Mario, from now on, would be exploring.

The new objects, like the big shroom that makes Mario gigantic, are excellent as it gives a point of craziness to the title, which is always well-received. Shooting freezing ice balls is also excellent, and Tiny Mario is such a challenge to control, but it’s always satisfactory to discover a new place you can get into, thanks to a small shroom.

Nothing is perfect; The classic Mario format tends to be boring overtime, and it relies on highly increasing the difficulty of the maps in order to make things more pleasant and enjoyable. The thing is that these buffs make the game a bit tortuous instead of making it a fair but hard challenge. It also happens with the latest instalments of the classic Mario format; if things don’t get stupidly difficult, then it wouldn’t be a Mario game.

New Super Graphics

It’s not the first time we see Mario in 3D; the last instalment of Mario in 3D was in Super Mario Sunshine. Nonetheless, it’s the first time we see a classic-format Mario game in 3D and from now on, it’ll be like that. New Super Mario Bros looks excellent despite its age, and it’s a gem that has aged excellently.

As this game worked as a transition to 3D, it sometimes looks like a combination of pixelated sprites alongside 3D animated models. This isn’t a problem, as it makes the game look unique and nothing like other previous games of the franchise. Bigger characters, like Gigantic Mario or Bowser, are really detailed, and it’s always a pleasure to see them running, moving and jumping on the maps.


This is a wonderful Mario game. It’s a classic everyone remembers, it’s one of the best Mario games ever, and it’s obviously worth a shot, no matter if you usually play Mario games or it’s the first time you’ll try one of these.


  • Highly fun and addictive gameplay
  • Great graphics
  • Top-tier music design


  • Boring story (as always when it comes to classic Mario games)
  • It sometimes gets unfair to play

Game Reviews

Every gamer on the planet, and many people who don’t game, are familiar with Mario and his gang. The familiar franchise helped lift the DS into popularity, and the developers seem to be trying to use the new game, New Super Mario Bros, to do the same for the Wii.

New Super Mario Bros about what players have come to expect from these games. Updates include moving from 2D to 3D, but the same carefree gaming style and platforming style gaming are both here for Mario’s introduction to the Wii platform.

Multiplayer fun

Although the game is largely designed to be solo, the major new feature pushed by developers is the multiplayer option. This option isn’t for the whole game, so it’s best to think of it as largely single player with a few, very fun, multiplayer segments.

Multiplayer is optional, but when you select it you and up to three other players can tackle a level together. Multiple people make some parts of the level easier, but can also make some parts harder. It’s a fun new twist either way, and definitely worth trying out.

The game also includes a Free-for-All mode and a Coin-Battle mode with others. Coin Battle is particularly fun, with players racing to collect more coins than other players before the time is up.

Wii navigation

The wii remote also offers some new aspects to gameplay, including using the tilt feature of the remote for certain platforms. You’ll also need to shake the remote to help get objects or to perform a spin jump. This helps make use of the remote’s technology, and makes the game a little less like a standard Mario game and a bit more like it’s own Wii game. The hub for the different levels is very similar to games of the past, and anyone who has ever played a Super Mario game should find themselves operating it easily enough.

Improved but still a classic

Fans of the original series will greatly appreciate the Wii remake. While the game is new, it pays close attention to past Mario games such as the original Super Mario Bros, and improves on it while still maintaining the classic feel. For example, while the animations still have that super simplistic look, the animations themselves are super smooth and more detailed compared to older games. You can also hear much of the iconic audio from the original Super Mario Bros.

Ultimate New Super Mario Bros made its entrance onto the wii platform gracefully. While in terms of story there isn’t much that’s new to offer, the satisfying multiplayer options and remake of the audio and visuals are enough to give you a classic feeling game with modern twists.


If you love the Super Mario series and were hoping to bring some of that Nostalgia factor to the wii, this is a great game to test the waters with.


  • Nostalgic gaming with modern perks
  • Fun multiplayer options


  • None

I'm sure you have seen the commercials, that familiar music, the mushroom that Mario eats in order to grow, the memories of spending a marathon gaming session with your friends drinking soda pop until the wee hours of the morning. Well, it's certainly a good day for the fans of Mario and company, because Nintendo has released the first side scrolling platformer that is the heir apparent to the Mario crown.

Much like every other Mario game out there, Bowser and Bowser Jr. have captured the princess and it's up to everyone's favorite Italian plumber to get her back. Using new power ups like the giant mushroom and old classics like the fire flower, Mario will adventure through eight worlds in order to get her back. Now this isn't your father's Mario, this time Mario can use some of the moves he has discovered in more recent titles. Mario can wall jump, triple jump and even butt stomp bricks in order to find stuff. And that 'stuff'? is everywhere, taking the term hidden objects to the N'th degree, gamers will have their hands full trying to find all of the cool stuff that hidden (including hidden worlds and levels with multiple exits).

The graphics on the DS are a step up from the original Nintendo's (for good reason) and I appreciated the subtle improvements. For one thing, I felt that Mario moved with a more fluid pacing, running more like a real person might run. The colors of the strange looking worlds seem to really explode with bright hues. Sure the Koopas and Goombas seem to look the same, but there is a certain familiarity that is almost reassuring. The levels are varied just like any other Mario game you have played, but the ability to go any direction in order to go back on the level and pick up items you may have missed is a welcome addition. And while the touch screen is all but barely used, I didn't mind at all, simply because the game is such a pleasure to play. Additionally, aside from the normal coins that Mario can collect for 1-ups, you can find three giant coins on each level which can be used to purchase entrance to other places in the game.

Finally, I would like to mention that this game features a decent multiplayer mode for both single game and dual game cartridge competition. Do battle against Luigi (or Mario) as long as you have a friend and a second DS. The mini games featured in Super Mario 64 DS have been included and improved upon for multiplayer action. And yes, there are some original multiplayer levels as well.

The New Super Mario Bros is an excellent game and one that you should seriously consider purchasing if only for the sheer amount of fun. And although the game itself can be beaten in about five hours, you can spend countless more trying to find all the hidden places and objects all over, a really great game.

Two brothers, one adventure in the platformer New Super Mario Bros. Join in new operations to rescue Princess Peach from her old enemies. Explore the vast expanse of the Mushroom Kingdom and pass through new locations with Mario and Luigi.

Another Kidnapping

One summer day, Mario and Peach are strolling through the park. At the same time, lightning strikes Peach's castle. Mario goes out to explore, but as soon as he leaves Peach - Bowser Jr. steals the princess. Mario tries to catch up with Bowser Jr. but nothing works. Mario ends up having to adventure through eight worlds to rescue his beloved princess.

Two Rescuers

There is more than one protagonist in the game. Initially, the player can choose who he goes on the dangerous adventure as:

  • Mario is the face of Nintendo and the Super Mario series of games. The older brother and main love of Princess Peach.
  • Luigi is Mario's younger brother, often referred to simply as Green Mario. Although he is not the princess's young man, he will gladly save his brother's friend from the clutches of the rabid dragon trap.

The game New Super Mario Bros. was the first in the series to feature Dry Bowser, the resurrected villain Bowser, who is shaped like a skeleton. In the same series, more villainous things are done by Bowser Jr. who makes intrigues Mario or Luigi in almost every world.
