This time, along with nabbing the Princess, the Bowser crew have also taken the magic wands from the Kings of each land and turned them into creatures. It’s up to Mario and Luigi to get back the magic wands, defeat Bowser, and save the Princess all before the day is done.
Super Mario Bros. 3 is a two-dimensional, side-scrolling platform game in which the player controls either Mario or Luigi. The game shares similar gameplay mechanics with previous games in the series – Super Mario Bros., and Super Mario Bros. 2 internationally – while introducing several new elements.
In addition to running and jumping found in past games, the player can slide down slopes, pick up and throw special blocks, and freely climb vines. Mario can also fly and float with power-ups. The game world consists of eight kingdoms, each subdivided into multiple levels.
Old and new power-ups abound in each level for the Mario Brothers, including the return of the Super Mushroom and Fire Flower, plus the new power-ups including the frog suit, the warp flute, and the most important of all, the leaf, which allows the player to fly and attack enemies with your tail.
The eight worlds feature distinct visual themes: for example, the second world, “Desert Land“, contains sand-covered levels with pyramids, while the levels in the fourth world, “Giant Land“, contain obstacles and enemies four times their normal size.
