Review: Super Mario World!

With valentines day now over, time to give you guys what I promised before, a review of super mario world!

Yeah, pretty much it's an old game, but a lot of people really love mario games because of the challenges that it has as well as nostalgia reasons. Also, this game features the very first appearance of Yoshi, the green dinosaur who will appear in subsequent games like Super Mario World 2: Yoshi's Island.

Nevertheless, fans of the series are sure to have a fun time because of the games many challenges, secrets and of course, suprised that await possible players.

The controls are quite nice for the average SNES player, although I played it through a SNES emulator for the PC. They're quite easy to learn and can be very helpful once you get used to it. Also, the controls differ once you ride yoshi and when you go back to the world map. It could be tricky at first but once you get the hang of using the controls, playing mario will be such a breeze.

Now for the levels. as you progress through the levels, things tend to go harder and harder. Especially when it comes to the Koopa Castles as well as them fortresses. And of course, bowser. I even had to rely on a walkthrough just to finish the game. :o

Of course, the powerups are quite useful. Especially the Cape Feather. God i love Mario when he glides, especially alongside Yoshi. The fire flow and the super mushroom is there as well. Also, Yoshi also comes in 3 other colors, counting the green one that makes 4 colors. Each colored yoshi has a special ability once it eats a colored shell.

The sound is quite funny and cute for an old snes game, although it gets too repeatitive at times. But nonetheless it's quite enjoyable.

Overall, super mario world is quite a must have game for those who still have the old SNES/a good SNES emulator. It's quite fun and challenging at the same time, especially at the final and special levels. In the end you'll just be proud to say that you have an important part of gaming history in your hands.

rating: 4 stars (****) out of 5.

and that's it for my review of super mario world!
