Gameplay change

The game uses many old features from the older Mario games. The countdown game clock is back; if Mario does not reach the castle at the end, he will lose a life. Mario also must jump and catch onto a flagpole at the end of the level and go into a castle, just like he did in Super Mario Bros. Before and after a level, Mario is on a world map, which was last used in Super Mario World.

Mario also has new powers from the 3D games (Super Mario 64 and Sunshine). He can do a ground-pound and a triple jump in the air. Both of these things first started in the 3D games.
