    The game shares similarities with the previously released Super Mario Bros. and Super Mario Bros. 2 (The Lost Levels) with several new additions. Players traverse through a world map where you can choose which path and level to play while also featuring spade panels and Kinopio houses that the player can earn extra lives or collect power-ups. Each world also features fortresses that contains the mini-boss Bunbun. The end of each world features a castle, where players must traverse through an airship to defeat one of the 7 little Koopa siblings. The world is cleared when the player grabs onto the wand upon defeating one of the Koopa siblings and Mario or Luigi restores the king for the world back to normal. The game features 8 worlds with a total number of 88 levels.
