Graphics: 4 out of 10
Sound: 3 out of 10
Gameplay: 6 out of 10
Hardness factor: 5 out of 10
Overall: 6 out of 10
Graphics: This game was ported from the arcade version (which they did
very well I might add) so it isn't exactly the greatest looking game every.
However, it has Mario, so I can't complain.
Sound: Music is absent, but the sound effects are pretty cool.
Gameplay: An interesting sidescroller like game (it came out before Super
Mario Bros. and after Donkey Kong) where you play as Mario and must hit
floors above to flip enemies over. Once you flip them, you run up to them
and kick them. Then, a coin falls out of one of two pipes, which you can
collect for bonus points. Not the most advanced game ever, but it is pretty
cool. Levels vary for at least a little bit (unfortunately levels repeat) like
more enemies and ground that freezes.
Hardness factor: I thought this game was pretty average and I'd have no
problem playing it. Only if you make a mistake will you usually die.
Overall: 6 out of 10. A pretty good game that you really must play if
you're a fan of the Mario series.
