Classic World 1-4 is an e-Reader level for Super Mario Advance 4: Super Mario Bros. 3. Its official difficulty rating is ★★☆☆☆.[1] The level contains one Advance Coin. This card was released only in Japan after the e-Reader's discontinuation outside Japan, although it was later released internationally via the Wii U Virtual Console version for the game in 2016. The key art featured Wendy O. Koopa.

Level synopsis[edit]


This level is a remake of World 1-4 from the original Super Mario Bros. with several differences. The player has to defeat the fake Bowser at the end of the level by either touching the axe or shooting fireballs or hammers at him. Like the original, the fake Bowser is revealed to be a Goomba when defeated by fireballs. In this version of the level, the Fire-Bars are not attached to Empty Blocks. Also, the Toad is replaced by a chest containing a Frog Suit, and the room it is in is much smaller.

Advance Coin[edit]

  1. The Advance Coin is in the top right corner of the room where Toad was in the original level. The player can simply collect it before opening the chest and ending the level, as they still have control of Mario after defeating the Fake Bowser.
