Super Mario Land, Mario’s first portable platformer, celebrates 30th anniversary today

Nintendo’s all-time popular title Super Mario Land is celebrating its 30th anniversary today. Thirty years ago on the same day, Mario’s first portable platformer made its way to Game Boy in Europe. This was the first time that Mario was available on a portable game machine. For those who’re unaware, it is a side-scrolling game that becomes a lot popular in no time.

Although the game is quite small, everything about it is enjoyable and nostalgic. In fact, for someone who likes to play retro titles, this game would be worth checking out. Just like with most Mario games, you will move to the right jumping across platforms to avoid enemies and pitfalls. Something worth noting is the fact that the screen can only move to the right and not the other way around. This means that you can not go back to the left.
