In Super Mario Bros, the goal of the game is to rescue the Princess Toadstool from Bowser. The player assumes the role of Super Mario and travels through the Mushroom Kingdom to find the princess and take her to safety.
In every level, there are coins, bricks and metal boxes. By breaking bricks, Mario can obtain more coins or special items. In some levels he can obtain power ups, such as a flower that shoots fire or a tail that give him the ability to fly. He can also pick up mushrooms that provide extra lives. Every level features enemies like Koopas and Goombas, and each level ends with Mario climbing a flagpole.
There are 8 worlds in Super Mario Bros, each consisting of 4 levels. The final level of every world is a boss battle. Each world has a distinctive look:
World 1: Grassland
World 2: Grassland with water levels
World 3: All levels are set at night
World 4: Grassland
World 5: Ice land
World 6: All levels are set at night
World 7: Ice, water and sea levels

Super Mario Bros popularised the side-scrolling genre, and is widely regarded as one of the best and most influential games in the world. It was one of the first-ever video games to feature a wide cast of characters, a coherent plot and many different styles of levels. It has ranked in IGN’s Top 100 Games of All Time and Game Informer’s The Top 200 Games of All Time.
Super Mario is one of the most recognisable video game characters in the world. Over the years, he has been the main character of dozens of different games, including Mario Kart, Super Mario Galaxy and Mario 64. He has always spawned plenty of spinoff series, such as Yoshi’s Story and Luigi’s Mansion.
