GAMEPLAY: Much better and more variation than SMB1 and more “logical” secrets.
AUDIOVISUALLY: It’s simple but clean. One of the better looking NES games for me. Music is killer.
STORY/PRESENTATION: The plot is barely there, but the world itself tells a story thanks to being more coherent and continuous.
I hadn’t played it in many years, but I enjoyed it a lot once again. It’s a great adventure!
