You can take it anywhere, play 2 players with a pal, link to another gameboy advance for 2P, and other couple of tidbits they don't tell you in the manual: After linking to another unit, you can choose to end the game and the entire game will stay loaded in the memory of the "client" GBA until you turn it off. Also, it works with the GBA wireless adapters if you've got them. Finally, it looks fantastic on the GBA's screen, especially on the "classic" GBA (not the SP) provided you can get the lighting conditions right.
By 1983, the gaming industry, in existence for a mere twelve years, had risen to an astonishing 3.2 billion dollar industry. Atari spearheaded the industry, which introduced its first console in 1977 (Atari Video Computer System), and since had grown to hold two thirds of the entire market. However, in 1984 all this would end with a thunderous crash. This concise overview will show you the history of the home consol crash and how SUPER MARIO BROTHERS came to the rescue.
In 1976, Warner Communications bought Atari for $28 million from the company's founder, Nolan Bushnell. Over the next two years, Atari, suffering major production problems and Bushnell's bizarre management, lost Warner millions. Bushnell and Warner's CEO fought, and in 1978 Bushnell was forced to leave. Warner totally revamped the working style, and in 1979-1980, produced twelve new titles. However, Atari was still dragging down Warner's stock. Struggling to gain the market share, Atari made the smartest move they possible could have; in 1980, they began licensing arcade games, the first being SPACE INVADERS.Read more ›
The graphics may not hold up a candle to what the GBA is capable of but that's because this is the "classic" NES series. This isn't meant to showcase what the GBA can do. This is meant for nostalgia and it is perfectly captured on the GBA this way.
As I said, it's a direct port straight from the NES to your GBA. But it does have one downside. For one, it seems that because of the GBA's screen some things had to be squashed just to be in proportion. This is very noticeable when you rescue the many toads in the castles.
This shouldn't stop you from picking up the game but that's exactly where the other problem lies. Like other classics in the Classic NES series, Super Mario Bros. has already been released several times! If you have a copy of Super Mario Brothers Deluxe that'll do just fine.
I'd easily say this is worth it to put down 20 bucks if you want the original classic. But if you have Super Mario Brothers Deluxe or an E-Reader you may want to grab Zelda instead.
Super Mario Brothers, the 1985 video game returns to the Game Boy Advance. Only the second time this game returns to the system, the previous one was just for the earlier Game Boy Color system. The games graphics are really old school, and a little bland, compared to the later Mario Brothers games, but this cartridge was designed for it, as a way to celebrate the 20th anniversary of the NES. The other downside is that many people may not want this one, because they might be hooked on the recent Super Mario 3. The game features the same 8 different worlds from the original Super Mario Brothers, without any hidden bonuses or surprises. As you play, you will encounter the same enemies, Bowser, goombas, and koopa troopas and a whole lot more than meets the eye. Still, I thought it would've been a better move to reissue it with the same graphics feel from the Super Mario All-Stars from 1993, but not what Nintendo created years earlier. All in all, the game still remains addictive as earlier eras in the video game world, and that is nothing to sneeze at.Read more ›
