Super Mario Bros. 2 (known as Doki Doki Panic in Japan) is little more than a port of a game that had no relation to the famous plumber at all. In the original version of the game, it actualy had an opening scene. Also different are character select and current level screens, they’re actualy put together to form the book from the opening scene. Also, instead of picking your character after each stage, the game uses a save file for the progress of each character individualy.
Other notable differences, is that different sounds were used for when picking up items or enemies, and hitting enemies. Also, the potion is a magic lamp, the eagle face at the end of each stage looks more like a tribal mask, and the characters don’t shrink when down to the last heart. The only other changes are graphics here and there, and differences in the endings.
