The game was originally set to have batteries for save the game’s progress. This was probably changed because the beta game was just 1 MB rather than the final version’s 2 MB. The story originally had more orange characters, background and text, a yellow frame a light yellow “painting” and a red logo. Originally, it was ellipses between “Extra Life” and the number of lives, something that was restored in Super Mario All-Stars. The characters didn’t change much, however, Princess Peach, Mario and Luigi didn’t have sclera in the original version. Also, the “shrinking” Peach missed two pixels on either side, and Toad did have two pixels fewer on the right down-corner. All their sprites for holding things also changed. The player couldn’t run by holding down the B button. The beta also had normal pictures for each character, through this maybe not was available at the time. The original lamp was originally to be in the game, instead of the potion.
