They must traverse side-scrolling stages while avoiding hazards such as enemies and pits with the aid of power-ups such as the Super Mushroom, Fire Flower, and Starman.

In video games, a power-up is an object that adds temporary benefits or extra abilities to the player character as a game mechanic.


The game was designed by Shigeru Miyamoto and Takashi Tezuka as "a grand culmination" of the Famicom team's three years of game mechanics and programming.

Shigeru Miyamoto is a Japanese video game designer and producer for the video game company Nintendo, currently serving as one of its representative directors.

Mechanics is the area of physics concerned with the motions of macroscopic objects.


The design of the first level, World 1-1, serves as a tutorial for first-time video gamers on the basic mechanics of platform gameplay.


The aggressively size-optimized profile was intended as a farewell to the Famicom's cartridge medium in favor of the forthcoming Famicom Disk System, whose floppy disks temporarily became the dominant distribution medium for a few years.

A floppy disk, also called a floppy, diskette or just disk, is a type of disk storage composed of a disk of thin and flexible magnetic storage medium, sealed in a rectangular plastic enclosure lined with fabric that removes dust particles.

The Family Computer Disk System, commonly referred to as the Famicom Disk System, is a peripheral for Nintendo's Family Computer home video game console, released only in Japan on February 21, 1986.

The video game industry is the economic sector involved in the development, marketing, and monetization of video games.


Koji Kondo's soundtrack is one of the earliest and most popular in video games, making music into a centerpiece of game design.

The game inspired an expansive franchise including a long-running game series, an animated television series, and a feature film.


Re-releases and cameos of the game are on most of Nintendo's following systems.
