You can also save anywhere on the main map after you've beaten the game once. I think it's supposed to entice you to play it again...Originally posted by: Baked
There are two ways to "save" the game in NSMB. The 1st one is soft safe, which can be accomplished w/ all DS games by simply closing the DS. The 2nd is using your special coins to open a route to a mushroom house, which will cause a save screen to pop up.Originally posted by: EKKCquestion for you all: does the game save automatically? i always leave the mushroom houses trail unopened because i tend to need them to save the game. the only time they ask you is if you beat a castle for the first time or opening a new trail using the special coins. it seems weird that you cannot save anytime you want on a map... if you hit quit, they say "unsaved progress will be lost"
NSMB is very short compared to the 2 games you mentioned. I think it took me roughly 8 hours to beat NSMB.Originally posted by: Dacalo
Owners of Mario Bros.:
How does the size of the game compare with Mario Bros 3 (NES) and Super Mario World (SNES)? I have the game with me, but the DS Lite is scheduled to be delivered later today.
