Super Mario Land 2: 6 Golden Coins

Temper-tantrum tyrant seizes Mario Land!

In his greatest Game Boy adventure, Mario faces off against his evil rival Wario, who has captured Mario Land and turned it into his private playground. To toss Wario off his ill-gotten throne, Mario must search new worlds for the six golden coins that unlock the gate to Mario's castle. A mob of monsters, old and new, seek to stop him. Along the way, through six zones, Mario can nab Super Mushrooms, Super Stars, and Fire Flowers for extra power—or a Magic Carrot to turn into a high-flying hare!
