Super Mario Bros. Deluxe
Typed out by Santina55
Once upon a time, the peaceful Mushroom Kingdom was invaded by the Koopa,
a tribe of turtles famous for their dark magic. These terrible terrapins
transformed the peace-loving Mushroom People into stones, bricks and
ironically, mushrooms, then set their own evil king on the throne. In the
wake of the ghastly coup d'etat, the beautiful Mushroom Kingdom fell
into ruin and despair.
It is said that only the daughter of the Mushroom King, Princess Toadstool,
can break the evil spell and return the inhabitants of Mushroom Kingdom
to their normal selves.
But the king of Koopas, knowing of this prophecy, kidnapped the lovely
princess and hid her away in one of his castles.
Word of the terrible plight of the Mushroom People quickly spread
throughout the land, eventually reaching the ears of a humble plumber.
The simple, yet valiant Mario vowed to rescue the princess and free her
subjects from king Koopa's tyrannous reign. But can Mario really overcome
the many obstacles facing him and become a true hero?

Original 1985 Game
Viewing the Game screen:
Coins: When you collect 100, you gain an extra life. Score: Your current score
Mario: Mario character on the screen
Timer: If the timer reaches 0, you miss. ? Block: Stomp it for a surprise effect!
The Mushroom Kingdom is made up of several worlds, each with four
separate areas. The fourth area of each world is that world's castle.
Note: Some areas have been changed from the NES version of Super
Mario Bros. In order to make the game easier to play on the Game Boy
Color system. How to Play:
The pause screen and Saving:
If START is pressed during the game, the Pause screen appears. On the
Pause screen, you can save your game progress. Note: You can only save
your game in the ORIGINAL 1985 Mode, not in the CHALLENGE, or VS GAME
Modes. Starting position: if you lose a life in the first half of an area, you
must start again from the beginning of that area. However, once Mario gets
about halfway through an area, you can restart from the middle instead.
This does not apply to World 8 or castles at the end of each world, on those
levels you must always restart from the area's starting point. Time
Limit: When play starts, the timer in the upper- right corner of the
screen starts clicking away. Any time left on the timer when you reach
the end of an area is added to your score as bonus points. There are no time
bonuses in the castles at the end of each area. If you run out of time before
you reach the castle, you lose a life. The flagpole: Just before you reach the
small castle at the end of each area, you must climb a tall staircase and
jump onto a flagpole. The higher you jump on the flagpole, the higher the
bonus you receive. The many faces of Mario
If you come across Mushroom People Who have been turned into bricks or
made invisible, they will reward you by giving you a power boost. With
each boost Mario changes into a different, more powerful Mario.
Mario Plus Super Mushroom= Super Mario plus Fire Flower= Fiery Mario.
Star= Invincible Mario
When Super Mario or Fiery Mario gets bumped by a bad guy, he will
simply turn back into regular Mario instead of losing a life. After
changing back into regular Mario, he will flicker for a short time,
indicating that he is temporarily invincible and cannot be bumped by
the baddies. Don't get too cocky, though, because the effect will soon
Jumping: Mario and Super Mario jump the same height.Hold the A button
down longer to jump higher, or jump higher by pressing the B butoon to
run before jumping. You can also use the Control Pad to make Mario hook
left or right, even in mid-air! Extra lives: Mario can get an extra life by
picking up a 1-UP Mushroom or by collecting 100 coins. There are other
secret ways to get an extra life too. Can you figure them out?
How to topple the Turtle tribe
There are many different methods of getting rid of bad guys. The number
of points you receive depends on how you dispose of them. Try different
methods to see which gives you the most points. You can jump on enemies
to stomp them flat. Or, if a bad guy is on top of a block, you can punch the
block from below to send him flying. Once you collect a Fire Flower, you
can press the B butoon to throw Fireballs. Never touch an enemy from any
direction when in the water. Finally, no matter how hard you try, there are
some enemies you can't get rid of. Just stay away from these immortal creeps!
Things to avoid
Just as there are several ways to get rid of the bad guys, there are
multiple ways to lose your own life. If regular Mario bu,ps into an enemy,
walks into flames or gets hit by a kicked shell, he will lose a life. If any
of these happen to Super Mario or Fiery Mario, he will simply turn back
into regular Mario, and the game will continue. If time runs out or you fall
into a pit or a chasm in the water, you will lose a life regardless of
which Mario you have.
If your score is high enough when your game ends, the Rankings screen
will appear. When Game Over appears on the screen, press the A button

you can change the color of your letters. Press SELECT To copy a name

from the beginning of the course when your game ended.
Once you have cleared a course in the ORIGINAL 1985 mode, you can play
that course in the CHALLENGE mode. On the Mode select screen, select the
CHALLENGE mode and press the A button to confirm. The clear List screen
will then appear, and you can choose which course you will play. The
background color on this screen will change depending on your total

status will be shown in the upper-right or upper-left corner of the screen.
Blocks and unique items to the Vs mode
