Title: Super Mario Bros. (2nd Review)
Rom Player: NESticle
Reviewer: VolCanon

Synopsis: This was the first video game I ever played, and I got tired of it quickly. The game is basically a platformer; the first that most people would have played. You run around squishing stuff or dying if you run into them, and if youíre lucky, you can fire fireballs. (Editorís note: a powerup allows you to shoot fireballs) With Warp Zones you can pass the game in about 5 minutes. (1-1, 1-2, 4-1, 4-2, world 8, end). There are some secrets like hidden 1-ups and such, but mostly you wouldnít need them because this game isnít particularly hard until the last few worlds (but still pretty easy). This game is somewhat repetitive, and graphics bad, mostly being solid colors or pixilated. The story is nonexistent, except to rescue the princess. It doesnít say why and you have to go to 8 castles to actually get there. Is Mario really that horny that he does all that so he can get his girl? It was certainly original, as it was the first Nintendo game, but originality only goes so far, as there are hundreds of newer and better games, all of which grew out of this game. The music is annoying, mostly beeps and such, and lasts about 10 seconds before repeating in the caves. This game is fun, but donít play it much or you waste your time, as there isnít actually that much to this game.
