Which New Super Mario Bros. game are you referring to? I will admit the Wii, Wii U and Switch games are pretty mediocre in terms of giving you that classic 2-D gameplay. The power-ups are decent but they either get too underutilized or just plain break half the levels by cheesing it. If you want to play a Mario game that plays in this format but is genuinely great, play New Super Mario Bros. on the original DS. In my opinion, the original DS game is very underrated in how it introduces the classic 2-D Mario formula with a twist. The power-ups are also used pretty effectively in respect to the overall the level design. Just having additional power-ups on standby and activating them with the touch screen can grant you a great deal of service in case a level is besting you. Best of all, no extra moves or tricks other than the wall jump and the triple jump that you might end up not using anyways.
