How to Play
The first player controls Mario blue and the second player controls Luigi green. You can either work together to kill all the opponents, or compete by putting the other player in a position to be killed.
Unlike later Mario games, players cannot jump on enemies and squash them, unless they were already turned on their back. Each phase is a series of platforms with pipes at each corner of the screen, along with an object called a "POW" block in the center. Phases use wraparound, meaning that enemies and players that go off to one side will reappear on the opposite side.
