Super Mario Advance is a remake of Super Mario Bros. 2 and Mario Bros. together on one cartridge. It features all the running, jumping, and veggie-flinging from the original Super Mario Bros. 2, plus new enemies and bigger items (and some annoying voice clips). In the updated arcade classic Mario Bros., you can play alone or against another player as you bump off baddies and collect coins.

There's another very important difference between this version of Super Mario Bros. 2 and the NES version: when loading a savefile in this game, the player can travel back to any stage before the last one visited. This makes several new routes available through the game which involve warping forward and then going back to a previous stage with a different warp.

This run plays through the game as fast as possible, usually taking advantage of Toad's speed and Luigi's jumping. (In this version of the game, Toad does not get a speed boost from carrying enemies or items.) For a version that only uses Princess Peach, see this run.

Runs for the NES version and SNES version are available, as well.

Please read the welcome page if you haven't already done so. It explains the rules and methods that apply to all of these movies, particularly the use of savestates and frame advance. Also refer to our Glossary to understand terms we use, such as TAS or other unfamiliar terms.
