The Lost Levels is a remake of the game released in Japan as Super Mario Bros 2. It introduces a number of new obstacles into the standard Super Mario Bros. formula, including poisonous mushrooms, wind, reverse warp zones, and of course many tricky jumps. It's difficult enough that Nintendo of America decided to completely re-theme a different game and release that as Super Mario Bros. 2 instead; The Lost Levels is the first time the Japanese sequel was released to the rest of the world.

This movie saves 164 frames over previous publication. All levels are played, including the secret world 9, and the extremely difficult A through D worlds.

This TAS uses Mario's brother Luigi. He jumps higher than Mario, but acts slower in many ways. However, the movie is in no way worse than the Mario version - some new creative solutions have been found.

This is a warpless version. For a warped one see [2210] FDS Super Mario Bros. 2 (JPN) "warps, Luigi" by HappyLee & KFCMario in 08:13.77.


Watch this TAS be played back on a real SNES.

The Lost Levels is the remake of the game released in Japan as Super Mario Bros 2; it is an exercise in Fake Difficulty, containing very difficult jumps, many enemies, problematic terrain, poisonous mushrooms, and, at worst, koopa jumps over walls or across pits. Most of it is senseless rehashing of elements in places where they don't belong (like amateur hacks). It's so difficult to beat that Nintendo of America released a wholly different game given a Mario theme as Super Mario Bros 2.

Of all the games in Super Mario All-Stars, it's the only one in the set that saves your progress at individual levels rather than the start of worlds. It's that bad.

This movie, about 7 seconds faster than the previous, plays all levels, including the secret world 9, and extremely difficult A through D worlds.

The Lost Levels is so cruel a set of levels from the Super Mario Bros series, Nintendo decided to replace it with a whole other game and give it a Mario theme, known as Super Mario Bros 2 in North America. It was later released as "The Lost Levels" in Super Mario All-Stars. It's the only game in the set that saves your progress at individual levels rather than the start of worlds. It's that bad.

This run plays all levels, including the secret world 9, and extremely difficult A through D worlds.
