Saddo commented on Super Mario Bros.: The Lost Levels:

Being a big fan of SMB1 (thanks to the VC), I was intrigued by this game, very intrigued. And at first I thought it felt strange, and the level design seemed convoluted, but just as with SMB1, by the second world I'd become a true believer. I love the way this game takes the tricks of the first game and plays with them, demanding more and more tricky moves.

Its understandable why NOA decided to release Doki Doki Panic in place of this, as to even make it past the first few levels requires either a LOT of patience from a newcomer or past experience from SMB1. So all in all, although I've only made it to the third world, I know already this is a real gem - currently subverting my expectations, fulfilling the potential that SMB had, this is one quirky game that truly is hardcore and very unaccessible to beginners, and I'm extremely happy that it be so.

P.S. Stop whining about the limited availability! I'm sure there's some good reason for it - it doesn't make any sense financially that I can think of, they're limiting sales! Also why is it only SMB2 they're doing this with? Some sort of legal issue maybe?
