I've always wondered how many people have actually beaten it outright?
Woo, just beat it. I always knew it was a great game, but I never realized how excellently designed it was. The levels are set up to lead you towards certain secrets so you begin to understand the logic behind how they hide the goodies that you need to get through the levels, but at the same time it's also intentionally teaching you bad habits to hide the best secrets. I finally discovered how devious the starman power up is. The feeling of plowing through enemies is so satisfying that I never realized until now that they always put it in a spot where you'll run past one ups and beanstalks to the bonus areas.
I was recording a few on my last runs through it for shits and giggles, but I'm not sure if I want to do anything with the footage.

You can hold down A when you press start and it'll start you at the beginning of the last world you died in, but fuck that, if I ever beat this game it wont be in pussy mode.
Same here. I beat the remake on Game Boy Color forever ago, but that saves your progress and I always knew that I didn't really beat Super Mario Bros. Stick with it, finally besting a game that's been kicking your ass is a great feeling. I could give you some tips, but if you're like me you want to get through on your skill alone.
