Have you played Link's Awakening?

I made Kid Tripp! PocketGamer gave it a 9 out of 10! You should totally buy it now!

Ah. I have both, and I think Link's Awakening is better. Still, SML2 is a great game. Have fun with it. :)

I agree. Both are good games, but Link's Awakening is the best Game Boy game of the two, and all Game Boy games. Sweet. :) Now if only I could beat L'sA.

I know what you mean. Super Mario Land 2 is a rather easy game, with the challenge coming from the final area. It's frustrating at first, but if you follow a certain set pattern, I'm sure you'll make it alright. :)

Well, the key to Wario's castle is timing and patience. That's what I would do.

Super Mario Land 2 is an awesome game. If you have never been exposed to its awesomeness, then I truly feel sorry for you. Just go play it so I don't have to feel sorry for you anymore.

I've always been disappointed with SML2. It looks better than SML, but it just has this sluggish feel to it. SML has kept me coming back again and again, but I think I only beat SML2 once or twice, and the rare occasions I've turned it on again, it's only taken me a couple minutes to get bored with it and turn it off.

No Mortal Kombat is better! ... sorry, just started thinking about billy madison while reading the posts on here :D SML2 is a great game. Links Awakening is as well.

i´m not that fond of SML 2. I think it´s a bit uninspired. many of the enemies seem to move the same way, and leveldesign isn´t that good. I love the general look of it and tha main theme is good, but it´s not a masterpiece. I even like SML better than the sequel (mainly because of great music and unorthodox gameplay). Actually, I´ve played very few original GB games that I´ve really enjoyed. Links Awakening is good, but the dungeons are too hard for me.

Even though SML2 is decent, I still find Super Mario World (which is the base for it's graphic department) to be way superior. Super Mario Land 1 I don't like as much, imho.

If you activate them, yes. There's a hidden switch in the floor you have to walk on to active them, and you just have to remember where they are and jump over them. You'll know you've hit one when one of the floor panels turns black for a second.
But if your memory's no good, just change the game to easy mode by pressing select at the file select screen. They'll move at a snail's pace so you can run over them easy. :)

This game falls behind Tetris and Link's Awakening on the list of my favorite GB games, but it's still a great game. Beaten it several times over the years, and it's far better than the original SML. My only complaint was that it was waaaay too easy. As a kid I remebered scouring a bunch of magazines trying to see if there was code to unlock a hard mode.

It's definitely inferior to SMW, of course. But it does make a nice "gateway game" to SMW, methinks. :)
