1 UP Heart
1 UP Hearts (alternatively 1UP hearts, 1-Up Hearts, or simply Hearts) basically perform the same function as 1-Up Mushrooms, granting one extra life to the player in Super Mario Land, Super Mario Land 2: 6 Golden Coins, Donkey Kong on the Game Boy, and the Game & Watch Gallery series. The most likely reason that 1 UP Hearts are used in these games rather than 1-Up Mushrooms is that the monochrome palette of the original Game Boy would make it impossible to distinguish between 1-Up Mushrooms and Super Mushrooms.
Super Mario series
Super Mario Land
1UP hearts make their first appearance in Super Mario Land. When a 1 UP Heart is released from jumping under a Mystery Block or Brick Block, it flies out before falling straight down. Unlike Super Mushrooms, they fall through the ground until Mario grabs it in time before disappearing.
Super Mario Land 2: 6 Golden Coins
In Super Mario Land 2: 6 Golden Coins, the 1-Up Heart moves like a 1-Up Mushroom and slides right unless Mario can quickly catch it. 1-Up Hearts can also be caught by a Keipu, who then runs away with them. In bonus games that occur if Mario rings the bell placed hanging in the air at the end of a stage, 1-Up Hearts become available prizes; in the Crane Game and Ladder Game, 3UP Hearts exclusively appear in the Crane Game and give three extra lives. Stand-alone 1 UP Hearts can be found in some levels.
Donkey Kong (Game Boy)
In Donkey Kong on the Game Boy, 1 UP Hearts float in midair at spots that are hard to reach without special moves. They reappear if the player loses a life and revisits the level. They appear slightly larger and have a "1 UP" logo on them.
Game & Watch Gallery series
Hearts, or heart-marks, appear in "Modern" versions of Game & Watch games in Game & Watch Gallery and its sequels. These hearts replenish a life that was lost and appear only when a player reaches 200, 500, and 700 points in most games; if a player does not have any misses when they pass these points, a heart does not appear. In this game, hearts are either red or pink and have a two-toned color scheme similar to the one suggested by the white-and-gray pattern of the original hearts in Super Mario Land. Despite later games supporting color, hearts still reappear for the rest of the series.
