How To Play Super Mario Brothers 2

The instruction booklet for Super Mario Brothers 2 for NES! It's was the oddball Mario game that takes place in an Egyptian desert and set to ragtime music. The best part is there's no time limit, so you can swim up waterfalls explore dungeons at your leisure.


SMB 2 has a "sub-space" world where everything was inside out. It was a shadow dimension where turnips turned into gold coins when plucked.


Instruction booklet images are real photos of TV screens! This was way before screenshots. 


(In case you were wondering, I do a zine about video games.)

this game reminds me of such a frustrating time - i first played it @ a sleepover in 6th or 7th grade when girls started being mean and freezing one another's bras.

i never beat #2 or #3, either. grrrr.

birdo's a total drag queen.

I love "Doki Doki Panic"!
Are you serious? This Fall? I feel like I have been waiting for Issue#4 forever.

i know no one seems to believe me when I saw "this fall." but there is a completed video game zine inside my head, I just have to translate it to paper.
