Super Mario Bros. 2 USA

The moment you start playing Super Mario Bros. 2, something goes terribly awry. The moment Mario jumps on an enemy… nothing happens.

Mario just stands there as the enemy keeps jogging. Did Mario lose weight? Is he on another planet? Regardless, squashing enemies with bodyweight just doesn’t cut it anymore.

Instead, Mario suddenly has the strength to lift his foe and toss it onto another, thus shifting the very dynamic of the gameplay. Mario is joined by all his friends, and it’s all fun and clever until you realize the game is actually a reskinned Yume Kōjō: Doki Doki Panic.
