Super Mario Advance 4 Review: 'The best version of Mario Bros. 3 available'
Hey, everyone and welcome to my review of: Super Mario Advance 4: Super Mario Bros 3.
Darn, that’s a long title. Anyway, this as most of us know by the title, is a remake of Super Mario Bros 3. For the Gameboy advanced. This game was released in 2003 (The year I was born!!!) And has the honour to have been released first in Japan, then in Europe, and then in the US.
Finally a game that gives us Euro’s some pride. But, anyway.
I played this game on my phone, and I must say it works very well with on screen buttons, and was still very easy and especially fun to play. Of course, the original Super Mario Bros 3, was one of the best games on the NES. It did have some issues, though. Like the fact that it was a big game and had no save feature.
Well, this game pretty much fixed everything, and you will see just how much I love this game, as the review goes on
The First Mario and the second Japanese Mario have some iconic songs yes, but they were rather repititve. Super Doki Mario (The European and American Super Mario Bros 2.) Had pretty catchy songs, but they really aren’t Mario.
This game has some great music, I had my headphones on while I was playing the game, and I really loved the music. It fits the game perfectly, in the scary castle, we have a scary theme, in the happy colourful levels we have happy colourful music! Everything fits so perfectly.
The sound effects are great and memorable, too.
Overall, the music is really catchy and fun to listen to, and the sound effects are very, very memorable.
The graphics are pretty much ripped from the SNES Super Mario All-Stars port, the Gameboy Advanced had similar graphics to the SNES, the GBA could handle a bit more than the SNES.
I like the graphics, but for some reason I don’t necessarily love them. I mean, they do what they have to do. But they don’t really deliver anything special in my opinion.
The animation is smooth, and it looks bright and colourful, like you would expect.
The sprites, I have to admit look great, I love pretty much everything about the sprites.
Overall, I really think it does what it has to do, but It doesn’t do anything great and noticeable, a 7/10
Now, I hear you screaming behind your screen ‘’What are you talking about!? Mario games are the most addictive things of addictive stuff!’’
You are right, most of the Mario games are incredibly addicting! And, this one is very addicting
But, just not incredibly for me. I don’t really know why, but Super Mario Bros. 3 was never incredibly addicting. To me anyways, the level design was good. But I felt that it wasn’t as good as the first one, or heck even new super Mario bros, and the galaxy games.
At times, I felt that the levels dragged on a little, just a tiny bit, mind you.
But, of course, I did give it a high rating, because after all it’s a Mario game.
I don’t really need to explain the gameplay, do I? You run from point a to point b, Avoiding obstacles and defeating enemies with various suits and transformations. It’s, well Mario.
Honestly, I never really knew why Super Mario Bros. 3 was so highly praised in the gameplay department, since well. It’s very basic, in my opinion.
Many even put it above super Mario world, which I don’t really understand, because I felt that Mario world had more variety, and was more addicting and well made.
But, overall I still think this is a highly addicting game a 7/10
Now, for a GBA game, it might not be very big. But for an NES platformer, which it originally was, this is pretty amazing.
You have 8 long worlds to play in, all having their own unique theme. My personal favourite being big world, where everything’s big.
The various suits, are really great and even add a little bit of strategy to the game. This is a tricky game, so you’ll need all the suits you can get. The levels aren’t incredibly big, but they’re not short, either.
World 7 has extra levels that you don’t need to play, which adds to the replay ability.
There was also an E-card feature, I don’t know much about it, but it’s there if you want.
Honestly, there isn’t much to talk about here, originally it was an NES platformer, which are in general very short, so how big this game is, is very impressive. A 10/10
I’m not very good at Mario games, so that’s why I’m rating it this high.
The difficulty does not come from the controls, which is very important. The controls are pretty much perfect. The enemy placement, is at times frustrating, which is probably the only problem with the difficulty.
The level design is very good, and Mario plays perfectly, it is easy and fun to control.
Memorizing the levels is very important in this game, and I love games that force you to. It adds to the fun and difficulty part in good ways.
Like I said, though, I’m not very good at Mario games, so I’m not good at this. I am not absolutely horrible, but not very great either.
Overall, the difficulty is great, yet a little too high for my liking. A 9/10
The story goes as followed:
We all know the Mushroom Kingdom, it’s a safe place because of our heroes, Mario and Luigi. However, the mushroom KINGDOM forms an entrance to the Mushroom world, a not so safe place. Bowser sent his seven sons to wreak havoc in this normally safe land.
And now, Mario and Luigi have to stop them! Very simple plot, but it’s a lot better than the regular The princess is gone thing we get in Mario games.
I didn’t feel that the plot was very interesting, and I wasn’t very excited for it, I was more interested in the gameplay. And, I don’t feel that the plot is very important in games, if the gameplay and controls are good, it’s going to be a good game, no matter how bad the plot is.
I like the plot, but that’s how far it goes. It’s really, just okay. It’s nothing special, because it shouldn’t be. That would take away from the experience, and make the game less interesting. That might sound.. Ludacris, but I really feel that way. A great storyline, should not be present in a main series Mario game.
I have no memories of this game, whatsoever.
I’m rating this game lower then what most people would. The gameplay and controls are good, yes they are. But for me, the enemy placement was a little frustrating, and while the level design was good, it isn’t as good as Super Mario World, or heck even New Super Mario Bros. DS in my opinion.
The sound was decent, and the game was addicting, but, the great classic Mario games this game gets compared to, I don’t think it holds up.

Super Mario Advance 4 - Super Mario Bros. 3 Cheat Codes
In World 5 (Cloud World), the first available mushroom house has a Tanooki Suit. Get it and beat levels until you get to the cloud part of the world by beating the spiral tower. The game offers to save your game. Save it, then get game over. When you continue, you keep the Tanooki Suit you got at the mushroom house, and the mushroom house has returned! All of the other levels remain defeated as well, though the spiral tower remains standing, so you cna beat it and save your game, get game over, and get another Tanooki Suit each time! The suits make good replacements for leaves, mushrooms, and useless items (like music boxes) in your item list.
Glitch only works for World 5 due to the ability to beat the spiral tower as many times as you want and save after each time.
For every 1,000,000 points you earn, a star will appear above the title Super Mario Bros. 3 (where you select between Super Mario Bros. 3 or Mario Bros.) You can earn up to five stars.
Earn Point Stars (Mario Brothers)
For each 150,000 points you get in Mario Brothers, a star will appear at the top of Mario Brothers at the game selection screen (where you pick between Super Mario Brothers 3 and Mario Brothers). You can get up to 5 stars maximum.
Replay all levels, fortresses, and castles.
To replay any level, fortress, and castle, beat every level in the game. Not just Bowser, every single level.
Replay fortresses and castle Beat all the levels in
every world. Includes the fortresses and castles.
Replay levels Beat all the levels in a world you want to replay. Includes the fortresses and castle.
Spade House Game
If you manage to ''beat'' a spade house (by correctly matching the pieces into any of the 3 forms), you can unlock additional houses!
In addition, you can create different combos that can get you even more lives!
Heart house: Star is replaced with a racoon leaf, and matching it rewards you with 7 lives
Club House: Star/Leaf is replaces with the number ''3'', matching this awards you 9 lives
Diamond House: All items are replaced with stars..a Guarenteed win!
Once you have passed a diamond house, the cycle repeats itself.
Club House Make any matching combination in any Heart House All existing Heart Houses then become Club Houses
Diamond House Make any matching combination in any Club House. Existing Diamond Houses return to Spade houses and the cycle repeats.
Heart House Make any matching combination in any Spade house. All existing Spade Houses then become Heart Houses.
Unlock World Selection Screen
Beat the game clearing every single level (90 in total). Once Bowser is defeated, save and you will be brought to a World Selection screen where you can jump to any of the 8 worlds. All locked doors will have been unlocked and you can freely visit any stage/bonus stage/castle/etc.
Blue Mushroom Shop (Anchor & P wing)
Beat the Game, then go to world 1 level 3 and hit the big old super mario 1 coin and get the coins needed.
Go to a shop and use it over again
Clear every level, including Hammer bros. levels.
Unlockables In World-e
Blue Mushroom House Get 30 Advance (Ace,A) Coins
Orange Mushroom House Get 50 Advance (Ace,A) Coins
Red Mushroom House Get 80 Advance (Ace,A) Coins
White Mushroom Houses
After you beat the whole game, special coins at the beginning of the secret levels:
Levels and required coins:
1-4, 2-2, 3-8, 4-2, 5-5, 6-7, 7-2
Each will have a number on the bottom of the screen telling you how many coins in that level you need to get a white mushroom popup on the map. Once you achieve that many coins, the white mushroom house icon will show up.
Worlds 1, 3, 5, 7 You get the P-Wings
Worlds 2, 4, 6 You get Anchors
In most levels, there are multi-colored blocks held up by screws. With the white ones, you can drop behind the scenes to escape enemies or find secret exits by holding down on the d-pad for 5 seconds. In World 1-3 towards the end of the level, drop behind from on top the white block and run behind the black curtain. You will uncover a hidden mushroom house which contains a warp whistle.
Special World Endings
Defeat the Koopaling at the end of an Airship (Worlds 1-7) while wearing either the Frog, Tanooki, or Hammer Bros. suit and receive a special message from the King.
Get the Magic Whistles
Whistle 1- On Level 1-3 when you get to the end of the course you will find a white block. Hold down while on top of the white block until you go behind the scenery. From here run to the end of the course and you will be transported to a room with a magic whistle.
Whistle 2- On the World 1 Fortess, when you come across the first Dry-Bones, there will be a [?] block. Hit this to get a leaf. As Racoon Mario, knock out the dry bones and fly up the ledge until you start walking along the top of it. Continue going right whilst on top of the ledge until you stop moving. Press up to be transported to a room with a Whistle.
Whistle 3- On World 2 after you have collected the Hammer from the Hammer Brothers go to the top right corner of the world map. Use the Hammer to break a rock leading to a secret passge. In here there is a Firs Brothers, beat them to get the Whistle.
Get Unlimited Lives in World 3-4
Attract Lakitu to the pit underneath the Venus Fire Trap. Next, launch a Koopa shell between the two wooden blocks. Now, as Lakitu launches Spiny Eggs, the Koopa shell will instantly destroy them. Accumulate enough points, and soon you will receive infinite lives. (NOTE: The max amount of lives you can get is 999.)
Infinite Lives in World 2 Fortress
You need to be Raccoon Mario to do this. When you enter the World 2 Fortress, don't attack the first Dry Bones (the skeletal turtle) you see. Instead, lure it over to the other two Dry Bones a few screens ahead. Now, jump on the first one, and use the raccoon tail to flutter onto the next one, and then the final one. By then, the first one should be back on its feet. Keep repeating the process for infinite lives.
N-Spade Memory Game
The N-Spade Memory Game will appear on the world map every 80,000 points you score.
There are a select amount of layouts that the game will select from.
Use the following procedure to turn the Wandering Hammer Bros. into a Treasure Ship. Note that this only works on Worlds 1, 3, 5, and 6.
Get an amount of coins that is a mutiple of 11
Make the number in the tens place of your score the same as the number your using for the mutiple of 11
At the end of the stage before you reach the Wandering Hammer Bros., stop the timer on an even number.
