Super Mario Games – The Classics
Many years ago, a fictitious character that goes by Mario was born in Japan. He first started out as a character in a game, but this game became so popular that everyone knew who he was. Today, you will still find fans throughout the world that are talking about Mario and Super Mario games. It wasn’t long after Mario came out that we started seeing his place planted everywhere. We would see it on product endorsements, on advertisements, on stationary and even on paper bags. For some of us, Super Mario was in our dreams when we slept at night. What makes this game so popular and why does everyone want a piece of Mario? Is it the fact that we all want to rescue the Princess in pink?
Super Mario is no doubt a classic game that was made by Nintendo Entertainment System. Mario is an Italian plumber, but we cannot leave out his brother Luigi! In nearly every game, players will be able to finish every level to get to another. In one of the games, the main objective is to save Princess Peach from Bowser. Bowser is ruler of the Koopas. This game can also be played by two players.
There has been forty million copies of this game sold and it can be labeled as one of the most successful game ever. It even survived the video game crash during the 1980′s. Due to such success of Super Mario, the Mario Brothers are known for being Nintendos biggest mascot.
In Super Mario, you will be able to go through hidden passages that can be found in certain stages. Generally, those passages are up in the air and can be unlocked by the key. There are some stages where you have to use a flying Yoshi in order to get to it.
When you play Super Mario, you cannot forget about the ever so loved Yoshi! Yes, we are talking about that green dinosaur (or whatever he is) that you can ride on. You know, that little guy that loves to stick out his long tongue and eat the little bad guys as well as the coins. Speaking in coins – When you collect one hundred coins, you will be granted one more life, so collecting coins is very much rewarded.
By collecting certain mushrooms, your character will get larger. In Super Mario, when large, the character will be able to take two hits before they lose their life. There are other upgrades that are available as you are playing the stages. Each world will have its own sub-level. When you reach the last world at the last level, you will be fishing the last boss and victory will be made.
Apart from the early Super Mario games, you can find other games that are based on the character in Super Mario. You have game boards such as Mario Party 1-8 that you can play as well as a game where you can race around a track, which is known as Mario Kart. There is no denying that while it may not be as expensive, this game is sitting right up there with the Final Fantasy’s. Whatever route you take, we have to give Super Mario a 10/10 for being great and personally, we want to give Yoshi and all of his friends a 10/10 for being so cute.
