Name EntryEdit

  • After your game ends, you must type in your name so that it can appear on the Rankings screen, if your score is high enough.
  • The lowest scores will be removed off the list should in case a new name shows up on the list.

Challenge ModeEdit

  • After you have cleared a level, you get to play the level here.
  • There are three medals to earn: collect all five red coins, exceed the top score, and find the Yoshi egg.
  • As your score progresses, the background color will change from green to orange to red, and finally blue.
  • Since it's now impossible to get 1-UPs, all 1-UP Mushrooms give you 2,000 points. So does Yoshi eggs.
  • Every Red Coin is also worth 200 points.

VS ModeEdit

  • To play this mode, you will need another Game Boy Color system, another Super Mario Bros. Deluxe cartridge and a Game Link Cable.
  • The first player to select this mode is automatically Mario.
  • The time limit is 280 seconds in World 1-1, 250 in the two castle levels, and 300 in all other VS Mode levels.
  • If one player misses, the other player automatically wins. But if both miss at the same time, it will be considered a draw until the collected coins determine the winner.
  • If you don't see your opponent on screen, he will be shown on the top bar (left or right). 


  • Face Blocks: They're part of the game, and can make blocks turn from solid to outlined.
  • 3-2-1 Blocks: They flip automatically after a few seconds.
  • Spiked Blocks: They can turn solid at times, but can also give damage when stepped on. They don't change in 1-4, even with the Face Blocks showing smiling faces.
  • Trampoline Floor: Mostly in 2-1, they give the players a bounce.
  • If you collect a Fire Flower as Fiery Mario, you get 5 more coins.

If you have more than 100,000 points, the VS Mode levels will be unlocked with a Boo ghost as your opponent.
