User Review Information

Probably the best version of SMB

Reviewed By: timeisup on 13 May 2020

I love little quality of life hacks like this that fix minor annoyances in games. Even as a kid little attention to detail things like no border between trees and sky could get to me and wondering why can’t the coin counter go above 100? Why can’t lives go higher than 9 and turn into symbols? Why do Mario and Luigi look the same when they become fiery? This fixes those and more. I don’t know that it matters that this is the PAL rom since they corrected the speed. From what I’ve read, the PAL SMB games were optimized for 50Hz gameplay but the music was not. This way it has been corrected for everyone.
