Overview In his 2nd Gameboy adventure, Wario (in his first appearance) has taken over Mario Land and hypnotized its inhabitants into thinking that Mario is their enemy. In order to defeat Wario, the player (as Mario), must play through 6 different worlds containing both new and familiar enemies to collect the 6 golden coins. A unique boss awaits the player at the end of each world, defending a golden coin. Once all 6 golden coins are returned to the castle, the player can enter the final level and challenge Wario.

Manual Original game included a manual Hard to get now, you’d have to buy it new Bugs/Glitches No major glitches Minor ones have been found by accident over the years, don’t really have any major consequence
Game Review Pros: – Great gameplay, unique worlds, enemies, and power- ups, challenging, good graphics (for gameboy) Cons: – Not many – Some secret levels are difficult to get to and require a certain scenario Better than most games in its genre because of good controls, fast gameplay (no puzzles that bog you down), and creative worlds and levels Target audience: advertised to kids, but can be played and enjoyed by anyone
Summary Overall strengths – Mario franchise is very strong & popular – Good music – Portable system (can play it anywhere) This is an excellent game that is definitely worth buying if you own any of the compatible portable Nintendo systems If time permits: DEMODEMO
