Super Mario Bros. is a Mario Bros. arcade game and the first game in the Super Mario series. In multiplayer mode, players control Mario or his brother Luigi as they travel across the Mushroom Kingdom to save Princess Toadstool from King Koopa. They move through side-scrolling stages, avoiding hazards like opponents and pits with the help of power-ups like the Super Mushroom, Fire Flower, and Starman.
Super Mario Bros. is widely regarded as one of the finest video games of all time, particularly for its accurate controls. Koji Kondo's soundtrack was one of the first and most popular in video games, making music a focal point of game design, and has since been regarded as one of the best video game soundtracks of all time. Super Mario Bros. launched a multimedia brand that included a long-running gaming series, an animated television series, a Japanese anime feature film, a live-action feature film, and an animated feature film.
