Carts.png This game has revisional differences.


See, this is why game preservation is important.
This game is defunct.
Do note the game no longer works at all without modifications. This is most likely due to the game's servers being shut down. As a result, further official developments with the game are unlikely to happen.

Super Mario Bros. 35 was a multiplayer battle royale released to celebrate the 35th Anniversary of Super Mario Bros. The game used the standard levels of the original title with a few twists, the biggest being that defeated enemies were sent to other players, which could lead to some crazy scenarios (Bowsers in non-castle levels! Hammer Brothers underwater! Two dozen Lakitus onscreen at once, all throwing Spinies!). To help combat this, players could pay 20 coins to use a Mario Kart-esque item roulette that would give a Super Mushroom, Fire Flower, Starman, or an automatic POW Block.

The game very strangely came with a built-in six-month lifespan, only being playable through March 31, 2021. Nintendo's only explanation for this is that the game is part of the 35th-Anniversary celebrations.

Level Differences From SMB

For whatever reason, several levels in SMB35 have slight differences from their counterparts in the original game.

World 2-2

This group of three coins near the start of the level is one block higher than they are in the original game.

World 4-2

In the secret room with the Warp Zone to Worlds 6, 7, and 8, the small cloud next to the first mushroom platform is missing.

World 5-2

Around the midpoint of the level is a platform with three Buzzy Beetles. The pit to the right of it is one block wider in the original game.

World 6-1

In the middle of the level is a set of stairs that has a hidden 1-Up Mushroom. SMB35 originally had the stairs one block too short, which also resulted in the hidden block being lower. This was corrected in v1.0.2.

World 7-2

As with World 2-2 (which 7-2 is a clone of), these three coins near the start of the level are one block higher than in the original game.

World 8-1

The pair of clouds right before the first pipe has a two-block-wide gap between them. The original game has a one-block-wide gap, which is also the case for the other cloud pairs in SMB1 and SMB35.
