Mario's first Game Boy adventure, Super Mario Land looks and plays much like the original, groundbreaking Super Mario Bros.. Mario is out to save Princess Daisy instead of Princess Toadstool, and he can throw superballs instead of fireballs, but the side-scrolling, turtle-trouncing, coin-collecting action is much the same. Super Mario Land owners will notice several additions to the SMB formula, including stone statues (and other new enemies), bonus rounds, and levels where you pilot an airplane or a submarine. The graphics are too small (even for a handheld game), and the game is easy to beat (even though it has no save points), but gameplay is fittingly super. ~ Brett Alan Weiss, All Game Guide
