Template:Game Infobox Super Mario Land is a platform game developed by Nintendo, and released in 1989 for the Game Boy. It is Mario's first appearance in a handheld game. This game wasn't created by Shigeru Miyamoto - the creator of the Mario series - himself; it was developed by his mentor.

Story

In the distant land of Sarasaland, an alien named Tatanga kidnapped Princess Daisy. Mario travels to the four different kingdoms, Birabuto, Muda, Easton, and Chai, to rescue her.

Gameplay

The gameplay for Super Mario Land is similar in most respects to the other titles released at the time for the Nintendo Entertainment System. The player takes control of Mario and heads off to defeat Tatanga, the "Mysterious Spaceman," and rescue Daisy. However, Bowser, Princess Peach, and Luigi do not appear in this game.

Mario used vehicles for the first time in this game; he used the Sub Pop submarine in an underwater level and the Sky Pop airplane in Tatanga's sky lair.
