I generally think of 1-ups as only a medium-strength powerup. Life boxes don't change how you play the level; they give you more chances to fail. I think that shields are the most powerful items, because they change the way the player plays. Infinite breath underwater, a second jump, or ring attraction all seem more powerful than one more chance to make that pesky jump.
