it's kinda like super mario bros 3, but with a bunch of differences, there is less powerups, the levels are generally easier, but overall i think it's a low/medium difficulty game; what really rocks is the graphics which is 2.5d (2d backgrounds and 3d characters) which looks really nice
the game also comes with a few unlockables (able to play as luigi for example), but most importantly, with a bunch of touchscreen minigames most of which are actually interesting (card games, mini puzzle games, and so on)
multiplayer NSMB is interesting for maybe 15 minutes? anyway only tried it once and then we replaced it with tetris ds cardridge which totally rocks:)
overall this is a pretty good game, doesn't feel a ripoff like those super mario remakes for the GBA... definitely worth playing and worth the money invested
