Retro Respawn – Super Mario Land 2: 6 Golden Coins

It’s been a while, hasn’t it? I’m not able to guarantee that this will be a frequent return to my writing about the games that are available at GR. However, I’ve got the time to take a seat and play a game after a commotion in my life and I’ve decided to share my experience on the blog, and if it’s your preference? I’m not sick or having any other issues, in fact, I’ve had a few problems with my house and I’ve been spending a lot of time in different places, where it’s been conducive to sitting down and playing games. Thanks to the Nintendo Switch and the Nintendo Online Membership and the Nintendo Online Membership, you’re now speaking to the proud creator of Super Mario Land 2 Six Golden Coins on the Game Boy, so let’s talk about it!

I been playing Super Mario Land 2 Six Golden Coins back in the day on a real Game Boy as one of my friends owned the game. I was awed by it in the early days. It’s definitely a challenging game for a handheld and it has more to offer than the initial Super Mario Land on the Game Boy did. While Super Mario Land resembled Super Mario Bros. on the Nintendo Entertainment System, in that you have to complete the levels one by one in a linear manner, Super Mario Land 2 Six Golden Coins is clearly more than just a copy from Super Mario Bros. 3 and Super Mario World, where the tough plumber is dropped on the world map and is required to choose the levels in this way, which means that there’s no predetermined way to progress.

With the limitations of memory on considering the limitations of memory on Game Boy console and cartridges, Super Mario Land 2 6- Golden Coins does an excellent job at recreating the Super Mario World feeling, featuring nice large sprites that give the game a much-loved personality and the game’s world a real sense of scale to the game. A nice feature is that you can play through every one of the six worlds without order, too. I discovered it completely by accident when I was walking through the map and ended up being in one world I hadn’t expected to be in until later.

The story behind Super Mario Land 2 The story of Super Mario Land 2: The story of Super Mario Land 2: Golden Coins is that you must find the six gold coins that are featured to gain access to Mario’s (formerly Mario’s) castle and then take him out, with this as the only game of the Mario series that features Wario in the role of one of the principal characters. Wario is a memorable character at first when you meet him in the final game and it’s not surprising that Nintendo chose to continue to play with him after the game was finished. The final stage of the game has you going through the maze of traps that lie within Wario’s castle. It is a bit grueling in certain areas particularly because it’s difficult when compared to the other levels of the game until this point.

The six worlds you explore include an underwater world where you must climb into the mouth of a whale at one stage, and stay clear of its tonsils and teeth to get there and a space-based world that allows for low gravity, which allows players to do some spectacular leaps while wearing an outer space suit it’s an ingenious method of mixing things up and also a precursor towards games in the Galaxy Series in the form of Mario video games as well as a very scary Mario-themed universe where you must climb to the very top of a cursed-looking animated Mario doll. Like the very first installment in this series, Super Mario Land 2 Golden Coins is no different. Golden Coins was developed by a different group than those who created the original Mario game which is why, as a result, it’s not willing to go off the norm in making things interesting and offering the player a totally different experience in Mario games.

This is evident in the case of the various power-ups that are available, as they are the Super Mushroom and Fire Flower are both present however, there is also the carrot which causes Mario to grow ears like rabbits that he will use to glide around the field. Similar to Super Mario Land, the Fire Flower works a little different it’s a bit differently in Super Mario Land 2 Six Golden Coins, with Mario receiving a lovely feather to wear when he finds it, however, he’ll now throw fireballs in the traditional way instead of bouncing balls at adversaries. The one-ups appear in the form of hearts since it’s hard to discern between various kinds of mushrooms because Game Boy games not being color-based at the time Super Mario Land 2 Six Golden Coins was released. I loved the power-ups and would love it if the ears of a rabbit were to return at some point and they appear great on the screen with bigger screens, which makes them look much like ones found on a console for home use.


Super Mario Land 2 Six Golden Coins is not with no issues. Some of the villains are somewhat generic, being slightly too strange at times until it’s hard to tell it’s an actual Mario game every now and then. I also noticed that the hit detection can be over-exaggerated since I would feel as if I avoided an opponent or danger but then get hurt nonetheless. Mario is prone to freezing when he’s finished the levels too, which can make him vulnerable to attack from enemies. This can be particularly annoying when you are fighting an opponent, like the great baddie of the world of water who launches little enemies at you. And when you do defeat him, and they’re visible, they could be hurting Mario while he is frozen and could cost him his life.

Overall, they’re small issues and I discovered Super Mario Land 2 Six Golden Coins to be an enjoyable adventure to Mario Lane. It’s certainly a great handheld game for the original Game Boy, you get plenty of value with Super Mario Land 2 Six Golden Coins, with the game making the best use of the game’s hardware to provide the most enjoyable experience it could. Wario is a fantastic adversary, the world has real characters, the power-ups can be a lot of fun, and there’s plenty to play that you’ll think that you’ve been on a real Mario adventure, not just a simple handheld game. If you have the Nintendo Switch that supports Online Membership, this game will let you feel as if you’re getting the most out of your money!
