Super Mario Bros. was the first game released for the Nintendo Entertainment System. Mario had starred in games before; Donkey Kong, Mario. Bros Arcade. But this is the first time he was actually declared "Super".
Now, this game is planned to be ported to Game Boy Color. It is moderately easy to port NES games to Game Boy Color. What basically needs to be regulated is the resolution of the Game Boy screen.
Super Mario Bros. was an awesome game. In a tromp through 32 levels of hop-stomp-swim-shoot goodness, you could sit and play for hours. There are extra lives and coins to find, plus several warp zones. Goombas and Koopa-Troopas to stomp. You can power up to Big Mario with a mushroom, or shoot fire with a flower. In every 4th level you can fight an evil dragon/turtle combo Bowser (a.k.a. Koopa) who throws fire at you from his big mouth full of sharp molars.
Mario saved Video Gaming. America was under the impression that Atari was the forefront of gaming, and quite frankly, I don't think such a sucky company should represent such a great pastime. The nation was about to move to computers, but Nintendo, along with this plumber, taught otherwise. Nintendo declared this game the 14th greatest game of all time. (Vol. 100 Nintendo Power)
The game has been slated for release on May 10th, along with some other great GBC releases. Nintendo will have us set for the summer, trust me.
