I absolutely love this game, I'd rank Super Mario Land 1 up there among Mario 3, and Mario World. People say that Mario Land 2 was better, but I don't agree. Only thing it succeeded in I think was bigger sprites, but the charm of the original sets it off.
I agree that the first plays better than the second. The feature in Mario Land 2 where you have to re-do all the bosses again, though not the actual stages, if you lose all your lives is a weird game design feature. Its not a hard game by any stretch of the imagination, but for me its just not as good as the first all round. I still prefer 2 to the third one - Wario Land. I don't know about anyone else, but I find it to be quite hard. Maybe I just need to read the manual or something!
Wario Land 2 though.... now there's a game! Stupidly big with tonnes of gameplay. Love that title on the GB Colour.
