The Alleyway[1] is an interstellar[1] cosmic location in which the game of the same name takes place. The Alleyway consists of fields, referred to as stages in-game, which contain lines of space grids. The Alleyway is mentioned only on the box art and promotional material and is never mentioned in-game.

It is stated that Mario's spaceship "is at the gate of the Alleyway."[1][2]

The North American box art and the Japanese box art depict the Alleyway differently. The Japanese box art is darker and has several planets, but it contains fewer stars.
