Super Mario Bros. was released on the Game Boy Color in 1999 under the title Super Mario Bros. Deluxe. It featured simultaneous multiplayer, a Challenge mode (where the player had to find hidden objects and achieve a certain score in addition to normally completing the level) and also included the Japanese Super Mario Bros. 2 (which was released on Super Mario All-Stars as Super Mario Bros.: The Lost Levels) as an unlockable extra, under the name "For Super Players". It also was compatible with the Game Boy Printer. The game did not, however, feature any upgraded visuals (aside from some graphics such as water and lava now being animated rather than static), and, since the screen resolution of the Game Boy Color was smaller than the NES, the view distance of the player is reduced. To compensate, players can press up and down to see above and below the player. Pressing select during the game also places the player in the middle or off to the left of the screen so that player can see well. Players can alternate between Mario and Luigi by pressing select on the map screen, and Luigi's outfit was changed from the original white overalls and green shirt, to green overalls and brown shirt to better match Mario and the more common colour palette. Fire Luigi took on the original colours to fit with his Fire colours in later games.
The game was extremely well-received by both critics and fans. GameSpot gave the game a 9.9, hailing it as the "killer app" for the Game Boy Color (it was also the highest rated game in the series). IGN went further, giving it a perfect 10 out of 10. Super Mario Bros. Deluxe also has an aggregate rating of 92% on Game Rankings. It was partially due to the high quality of the port, especially with inclusion of The Lost Levels. Super Mario Bros. Deluxe did well amongst consumers, selling over 2.8 million copies in the United States alone.
