Super Mario Bros. is a platformer that's easy to learn, and near impossible to master. Play as Mario, a lowly plumber, as he runs and jumps across a strange mushroom kingdom to rescue Princess Peach from the evil King Koopa.

Casual players can pick it up easily, but difficulty really ramps up in later levels. And it's perfect for speedrunning.
