There’s no need for us to keep on insisting on the fact that Mario, Nintendo’s famous plumber, is one of the major icons of video game history. Ever since he first appeared in the 80s’ in Donkey Kong and Jumpman until the date, he has starred in many different video games. You’ve probably already heard of his latest hit: Super Mario Run, available for both Android and iPhone.
And of course, one of the games in which we could play with our favorite plumber was the legendary Super Mario Bros, a game that was released over 30 years ago but that’s still a real virtual entertainment gem and that holds a privileged place among arcade platformers.
We’ve only got good words for this game. A must.
One of the most important aspects of this game is that we could also play with his brother Luigi, something new back then… But in the rest of aspects, it was exactly the same and therefore just a brilliant game. As you know, your mission was to rescue Princess Peach from the clutches of Bowser, the evil king of the Koopas.
And in this APK you’ll find an unofficial adaptation for Android smartphones and tablets. You’ll be able to make the most of the title that back then was a real hit on NES and Super NES. If you also played back then, this is the perfect app to remember your younger days.
Well, at least in this case, you can. As we said a few lines above, it’s not an official development carried out by the Japanese company, usually quite reluctant to adapt its games to other platforms such as PC, Mac or PlayStation. This game has been created by an anonymous and unselfish developer that has decided to bring some justice to this app. So if you think that the 10 euros you have to pay for the latest Nintendo development are over the top, you can always revive those moments you spent on your 8-bit video console.
With regard to the graphical quality, you obviously can’t expect the graphics of the Wii or Nintendo 64… not even the Super Nintendo. This will be like taking your old NES out of the cupboard and connecting it to your phone. However, you might miss a bit more sensitivity regarding the controls that this time around appear on-screen because its’ quite difficult to control the jumps of our hero. But who cares? We’ll soon get used to them. Practice makes perfect.
The main heroes of the game are a plumber Mario and his brother Luigi (as a game for the second player character). The goal – to get through the Mushroom Kingdom, eluding or destroying soldiers Turtle King Koopa (also known as Bowser) to rescue the captured Princess them captive. Mario (or Luigi) attacks enemies by jumping on top of them (this method kills mushrooms Gumba and temporarily neutralize turtle Koopa, forcing them to hide in their shells) or by hitting the platform on which the enemy below. “Frightened” of turtles can be used as a weapon against other enemies, pushing the shell in front of him: speeding, he sweeps away all in its path, but when it encounters an obstacle, reverses direction, and can hit most of Mario. Some enemies, like porcupines back, you can not jump, as this hurts Mario. They can be killed by shooting fireballs at them, kicking turtle or a blow to the platform below.
Super Mario Bros. ( S?p? Mario Buraz?zu?) is a 1985 platform video game developed by Nintendo, published for the Nintendo Entertainment System as a pseudo-sequel to the 1983 game Mario Bros. It is the first of the Super Mario series of games. In Super Mario Bros., the player controls Mario and in a two-player game, a second player controls Mario’s brother Luigi as he travels through the Mushroom Kingdom in order to rescue Princess Peach from the antagonist Bowser.
The success of Super Mario Bros. has caused it to be ported to almost every one of Nintendo’s major gaming consoles. In late 2010, as part of the 25th anniversary of the game’s release, Nintendo released special red variants of the Wii and Nintendo DSi XL consoles in differently re-packaged, Mario-themed, and limited edition bundles in all regions
