Super Mario Bros. 4ever is the fourth game in the Super Mario Bros. series and the first ever game by EEA Inc., released for the Nintendo Entertainment System. It was released in 1991, on the same year as the Super Nintendo Entertainment System. The game was discontinued in 1994, after the NES and was later re-released on the SNES because of it's popularity. The game includes a classic storyline of Princess Peach getting kidnapped by Bowser, and Mario and Luigi must save her.


Like Super Mario Bros.: The Lost Levels, Both Mario or Luigi can be selected when starting the game. The player also has the choice of doing Co-Op Mode in which Mario and Luigi can play the game at the same time.

  • Luigi - The second major hero of the game, Luigi, Mario's little brother with higher jumps but terrible control.

  • Toads - The people of the Mushroom Kingdom that were also kidnapped by Bowser. There is one in each castle.
  • Bowser - The main villain of the game that plans the conquer the Mushroom Kingdom by kidnapping the princess.


After the player beats World 9, he/she will save Princess Peach and the game will be restarted. However, if the player finds the Warp Zone in World 8, the player can warp to World 10 but will still save Peach.

Sprite Power-Up Instruction Booklet Description
SMB4 Mushroom
Super Mushroom The plumber's favorite power-up that makes his bigger and stronger than before. If he gets hit by a baddie however, he will shrink back to normal. This familiar power-up can be found almost anywhere.
Giant Mushroom This shroom is a bit harder to find than it's super cousins, but with this rare power-up, the Mario Bros. can destroy just about everything in their path in a limit of time, including Bowser...
Fire Flower SMB4
Fire Flower A strange flower with the power to make the heroic plumber that touches it have the power to scorch quite a few different enemies, but he better be careful. One punch and he'll turn back to Super Mario.
Ice Flower SMB4
Ice Flower Another amazing power flower that has the ability to make the Mario Bros. shoot ice instead of fire. It can only freeze the creature for a limit of time though, so watch out. This cool items are only found in cold climates.
8-Bit Star
Starman A rare galactic power-up that is most found in secret blocks and out in the galaxy. As rare as it is, this item can make Mario or Luigi invincible for a limit of time only. Grab one of these and make a run for it!
Super Leaf SMB4
Super Leaf This may look like a normal brown leaf, blowing in the wind, but this sweet power-up can make Mario or Luigi a raccoon. As crazy as it sounds, the raccoon suit allows the bro. wearing it to fly and bop buddies and blocks with his tail.
Hammer Suit SMB4
Hammer Suit Another suit, similar to the raccoon suit, only it allows Mario or Luigi to toss hammers at enemies, just like a Hammer Bro. It also lets him hide inside his shell to avoid enemies but is quite scarce.
Yoshi Egg A special egg power-up that hatches into the cute dinosaur, Yoshi. He will allow the plumber to ride on him until he hits an enemy, then he runs wild! Use his tongue to swallow most of you enemies whole and lay eggs that can hatch into new items.
Apple A common fruit power-up for Yoshi that makes the green dino grow wings and fly around and shoot fireballs like the famous fiery flower power-up for Mario but can no longer swallow enemies after eating the apple.
