Super Mario Bros: The Lost Levels
Published in 1986, Super Mario Bros: The Lost Levels is a sequel to the hit game Super Mario Bros. This side-scrolling platformer has 32 challenging levels that cross over eight different worlds. This sequel is known for being quite difficult, so it definitely isn’t for the faint of heart.
