The essence of the games pruedcod by Nintendo is simplicity, innovation and fun. I agree with the post of David Essence indeed, the fewer things players need to know, the easier they can play and enjoy the game. I played the Super Mario Bros 2 enhanced version on GBA, and I almost spent 60 hours on it. The “amazing throwing” appealed me so much. There are many different things can use to throw and players can find various ways to get and throw them like the boss fight. These features can be simply caught in this commercial and I think it is very successful. In that time, a large number of games were all about shooting and defeat the enemies. Compared with this, a new throwing gameplay loop Nintendo created is much more brilliant. Thus the game with simple throwing, creative throwing and interesting throwing should succeed in that time.By the way, I played another game called Chip n Dale- Rescue Rangers released by Capcom in 90s. This game is also focused on throwing the boxes and defeating the enemies. I think it was also successful in that time.
