Powers ups like the super mushroom and fire flower are available in the game. Super Mario Bros 3 has introduced new power-ups like the Tanooki suit and super leaf that turn Mario into a raccoon while the suit enables him to fly.

If Mario wears the suit while his jumping he can pound the ground and kill enemies that are directly below him. This feature was later used in Yoshi land and soon become a standard feature in subsequent games.
Other power suits that you will find in the game include the frog suit which when worn gives the player underwater capabilities like agility and speed while enabling the player to jump to high heights when on land. The hammer suit turns Mario into Hammer Bro and this comes with the ability to resist fire from enemies while throwing hammers at enemies. You can play the game as a single or multiplayer. Through the multiplayer game mode, players take turns to navigate the overworld while accessing the different stages. During the multiplayer mode, one of the players takes control of Mario while the other assumes the role of Luigi.

Super Mario Bros 3 Game Development
The game took two years to develop under the supervision of Nintendo Entertainment Analysis and Development team; they consisted of ten people. During this time the team was under the directorship of Shigeru Miyamoto. To encourage a robust sharing of ideas, Shigeru worked closely with the team through the conceptual and final stages of the game development. Initially, the developers were of the view that the game should be played from an isometric view but they found this to be too difficult and settled on a 2D view instead. To accommodate this, the developers had to scrap some concepts like the checkered floor from the cutscene. The game introduced several features to accommodate player’s skills. Less skilled players found the 1-ups and bonus coins to be in plenty in earlier worlds while skilled players found complex challenges as they progressed to later worlds.

To make the game more attractive to players and enhance Mario abilities, special power-ups were introduced that changed the appearance of the player. Before giving Mario a raccoon tail, the original idea was to have him turn into a centaur. These abilities enabled players to navigate certain levels. To enhance diversity in battles new enemies were introduced like Hammer Bros, Goombas, and the Koopa Troopers. It is interesting the some of the enemies actually resembled the developer’s personal appearances. For example, the character ball and chain was inspired by Miyamoto troubled childhood.

The Koopalings were designed to be unique in personality and appearance. Miyamoto based them on some of his team members as a gratitude for their devotion in designing the game. The game’s version in the US has the Koopalings been named after prominent musicians like Roy Orbison and Ludwig van Beethoven. The team used a special graphics machine to create graphics of all types. Koji Kondo; who had also done it for Super Mario Bros. did the awesome soundtrack. To enhance the melodies in the soundtrack, Koji experimented with various music genres and that is why some people confuse the soundtrack for fusion or latin. However, the programmers omitted the music on the title screen as they found it to be unnecessary. Download our Super Mario Bros 3 GBA ROM Here.
