World 8-1 is the first level of World 8 in Super Mario Bros. and the twenty-ninth level in said game. It is the longest level in the game.

In VS. Super Mario Bros., this is the only level that has a higher time limit (350) than its original version (300).


The player starts on a path with a Buzzy Beetle leading a row of Little Goombas. Past a pipe with a Piranha Plant and some Koopa Troopas are gaps the player can simply run across, followed by another Koopa Troopa and some more Little Goombas. Between the next two pipes is a Hidden Block containing a 1 up Mushroom, and the next second pipe over leads to an underground area, which exits out of the pipe immediately after. Following a row of Koopa Troopas and Little Goombas is an enclosed area with a Koopa Paratroopa, in the middle of which is a Hidden Block that can be used to reach a Coin Block directly above. After some gaps and more Koopa Paratroopas is a row of Brick Blocks, with the third from the left containing a Starman. Past some more gaps, a row of Little Goombas and a Buzzy Beetle, some pipes, and a stone staircase, there is a large gap with a narrow platform in the middle of it. After some more Koopa Troopas, pipes, and stone pillars is the flagpole.

In Super Mario Bros. Deluxe, the player can collect five Red Coins, find a hidden Yoshi Egg, and get a medal based on their score. The Yoshi Egg is found in a Hidden Block directly above the narrow platform in the large gap, and the score to beat is 40000. The Red Coin locations are:
