Game: Super Mario Land 2: Six Golden Coins
Start Date: July 27th, 2009
Runtime: 1:36 hours
After the defeat of Tatanga in Super Mario Land, Mario returns home to find that his castle has been taken over by an imposter named Wario. Wario has sealed the front door shut, and the only way to open the door will require Mario to adventure through the neighboring zones to find the six golden coins that will break the spell and open the door. In this all new portable adventure, Mario will venture into space, glide through the sky with his new “flying rabbit” power-up, and even go exploring in the mouth of a giant turtle; anything to regain his lost home.
This was the second “replay” project I did on my channel, as I had done some videos for the game at a prior date, but due to the bad (camcorder) quality of the project, with no commentary to boot, I decided to redo the project with a modern spin. The older videos are no longer available on my channel.
This was the first Game Boy title I owned for the Game Boy, and much like Super Mario World, this game has a lot of nostalgic value for me and is definitely one of my favorites. It’s not a very long game, but is definitely worth a quick watch if you are interested in one of Mario’s most classic handheld adventures.
