World 2-1 is the first level of World 2 in Super Mario Bros. and its remakes Super Mario All-Stars and Super Mario Bros. Deluxe.


A group of enemies and some ? Blocks.

At the beginning of this level are three Brick Blocks. The middle one contains a power-up. Ahead is a short platform of bricks with a Little Goomba walking along it. It leads into a small gap with two Koopa Troopas in between. Following this gap are two more Little Goombas followed by a Piranha Plant inside a Warp Pipe. After this, two rows of ? Blocks appear. The one in the bottom row on the far left holds another power-up. More Little Goombas and Koopa Troopas are found here on the ground. Midway through, there are more Brick Blocks. The one on the top left contains a Starman, and there is also another Piranha Plant inside a pipe. Further on are even more rows of ? Blocks and Brick Blocks.

All ? Blocks contains coins. One of the top row blocks, located a little to the left contains a beanstalk that leads to Coin Heaven. This secret area is located in the clouds. Here, the player can ride a moving platform to the right and collect a lot of coins until they reach the end. Upon exiting, the player will appear at the end of the level. Ahead of the vine are a few more groups of Little Goombas and several more Piranha Plants inside pipes. The first pipe leads to a secret area underground, where the player can also collect a bunch of coins. Following this is a short gap followed by a Koopa Paratroopa. Another short gap lies ahead, with three vertical blocks the player must leap over. Ahead are some more ? Blocks as well as bricks, which mostly hold coins. Even more Little Goombas and Piranha Plants are found here.

First appearance of a springboard.

Finally, towards the end of the course is another Koopa Paratroopa and a small gap. Following this gap is a springboard next to a tall brick wall. By jumping while on the lowest point of the spring, the player can get a high leap over the wall and reach the flagpole. Alternatively, the player can find a Hidden Block above two Brick Blocks to get over the wall.
