Default Super Mario Bros. Virtual console glitchy.

I bought the Super Mario Bros. off of the E-Shop awhile ago. While I play it it seems to have a lot of bugs. The timer runs down at a cheetah's pace, and so far I can't get past world 2-1.
Whenever I jump to get on that Spring thing that will throw you into the air, It will either disappear or mario will get stuck on it, and I won't be able to move. I will then have to reset the game. Does anyone else have these issues? I have re-downloaded it 4 times, but it still won't work.

Have you played this game before or is this your first time? That might clear things up...
This game is quite well known for being hard and the time runs out faster than the other games as far as I know, but I'm not sure about the spring problem...
BTW The game seems normal to me.

I don't think it is glitchy?

Those aren't glitches at all.

As for the spring, if you time it wrong, you don't bounce high at all.

The engine of the game itself makes the timer move faster than other games.

(When I was working on a hack version of the game, the timer sped up even more when I tried to increase the amount of time you had)
