Remake of the 1983 original.
The sound is annoying and hard on the ears! The controls are terrible, the graphics are idiotic and represent somebodies sad, sorry attempt at representing Mario. At least it could have used the arrow keys instead of arbitrary controls! And please! The sound is even worse than the graphics! What happened to putting MUSIC in games? Instead of music they used a synthesized farting sound whenever Mario moves! Since when does jumping cause a 'beep' instead of a 'gloing'? This game is totally bogus. The physics aren't even close. I enjoyed the original but this blows! It takes 10 seconds to download and I think this game only took 30 seconds to design! I give this game a -10 out of 10!
This game is great. For those of you who may think, "This isn't Mario!" well it is, just not the one that's most famous. This little gem is a remake of the original 1981 Game & Watch title, Mario Bros. For those of you who don't know what a Game & Watch is, do some research. In short, it's the predecessor to the Gameboy and every other handheld in the world. Also, it is this game (on the G&W) that inspired the DS because it had two screens, one which controlled Mario, one which controlled Luigi.
This is the original Mario Brothers. A very different concept to the Mario Brothers games you will all know. You basically have to kill all types of creatures that come out of the pipes (mainly turtles). After playing this original remake I now see why they made Mario a plumber. Him being a plumber was so arbitrary in the later games.
Did you know: Mario’s name was originally Jumpman but his name was changed to Mario to honour the Nintendo of Americas landlord.
Nintendo packages this with Super Mario Brothers 3 for GBA and the graphics are similar but less thought out. By the way, Mario did not get his name from Jump Man. Mario was in the original Donkey Kong game for the Atari 2600. He was the one jumping all of the barrels that DK threw down the ramps. The old play book said that he was a plumber then. It sucks being old enough to remember this crap.
This game is practically the poorest Mario game ever! It is hard to figure out the keys and the quality screening of the game is poor. I would give it both thumbs down.
I have played Mario Bros for a long time since I was seven years old.
The game is good, I almost beat it. I really enjoy playing it.
I love this game a lot. That's why I play it, and if you don't like it then you must not like video games.
