    I'm sure you probably wonder at a point why Super Mario Bros. 2 USA version looked different than the first game. It's simply because the creators in Japan thought that the actual Super Mario Bros. 2 was in fact too hard for Americans. I decided to try out the game myself and get Super Mario Allstars on Wii Virtual Console which this game. My honest opinion on this game is that, yes this game is really hard! I'm currently on 4-4. I've died nearly 500-1,000 times on some levels. I continue to play this game because today's games aren't challenging enough. Yes, they are fun to play online with friends and family but I'm sure a good challenge never hurt anyone. So,if you are up for a challenge I recommend this game. :)

    Super Mario brothers - Same on all
    Super Mario brothers 2 - Japanese version became "The lost levels" outside Japan
    Super Mario brothers 2 - US/UK is Doki doki panic reskinned

    And in a final twist the re-skinned Doki doki panic got released i Japan as Mario brothers USA
    And lastly it became Super Mario advance

    Super Mario advance is a pain to explain
    Advance = Doki doki panic/Mario 2
    Advance 2 = Super Mario world
    Advance 3 = Yoshis island
    Advance 4 = Mario 3
