The storyline of New Super Mario Bros. is simple but interesting. During a tranquil walk with the Princess Peach, Mario witnesses a lightning strike on Peach's castle. Mario predictably races off to lend a hand, but no sooner has he stepped away from the always popular Peach, than he sees Bowser Jr. step into the picture and drag her away. As mario pursues them throughout both overworld and underworld, the appearance of Bowser and the Koopas shows that the list of fiends opposing him is longer than he expected. But Mario is not one to be put off by such things. You can come along with Mario, Luigi and other friends as they venture into the depths of the Mushroom Kingdom to get Peach back once again.
The single player mode is set on 80 levels, that are spread across eight worlds, with the players assuming the role of either Mario or Luigi. Like all Mario Bros. games, here too, the ultimate goal is to rescue Peach. As the players traverse through several levels, the immediate goal is to collect coins, hop on top of enemies and break open blocks while searching for power-ups as you race to capture the flag at the end of each level. Each of the game's eight worlds climaxes with a boss battle tied into the abduction of Peach in which players need to utilize the game's six power-ups in order to have success or win the game.
Along with its single player mode New Super Mario Bros. for DS also features two different multiplayer modes. The first is the Mario vs. Luigi, 2-player competitive mode. In this one it's brother vs. brother in a literal race for Stars. Players choose to play as either Mario or Luigi, with the goal to collect the Stars that appear throughout the stage at timed intervals. If one brother gets a star(s), they can be stolen away by the other player by doing damage. The one who gets to the set number of stars wins the game. This mode uses local wireless DS Single-Card download play, so only one game card is needed.
The other multiplayer mode revolves around mini-game play. There are variety of these, which can be engaged in on a one-on-one basis, or in tournament fashion with 2-4 players.
The New Super Mario for DS contains six power-up options. Three of them are- the Super Mushroom, the Fire Flower and the Starman that are back from previous games. There are also three characters, which are entirely new to the game. These are- the Blue Koopa Shell, which Mario can crawl into to protect himself and spin when inside it to attack enemies; the Mega Mushroom, that allows for a huge Mario; and the Mini-Mushroom, which makes Mario very small and able to get into places that wouldn't otherwise be available.
