Have you ever wanted to run your favorite old-school Nintendo characters through the original Super Mario Brothers? Well wait no more, you now can with Super Mario Crossover. You have a choice of Mario, Link from Zelda, Bill R. (didn’t know that was his name) from Contra, Simon from Castelvania, Mega Man or Samus from Metroid. The great thing about using these other characters, is you get to use their own weapons instead of just jumping on things with Mario. The author of the game says:
This is my first game, and I have worked on it for over a year. It has been a long journey, but I think you will see that all of my effort has paid off. I have recreated the entire game of Super Mario Bros, but now you can play as different characters. Each character plays just like they do in their original games with a few modifications to make the experience better.
This is my tribute to classic NES games, and anyone who grew up playing Nintendo should enjoy it. Now please enjoy the hell out of this game and experience Super Mario Bros in a whole new way!
And yes, I know that controlling Simon Belmont in the air isn’t easy, but that’s what makes him special. And he can double jump to help you control it a bit more. 😉
I highly recommend playing this with a gamepad if you have one, but you can still enjoy it with a keyboard.
Go take it for a spin (newgrounds.com), it’s fun to play an old favorite game from a different perspective.
