Super Mario Bros. - Modern Classic Edition

Hack of Super Mario Bros.

Description:

This hack updates the entire Super Mario Bros. game to match the look of more (relatively) modern Super Mario games, particularly Super Mario World. With the exception of solid background tiles, every tile has been updated including enemies and power-ups. However, nothing has been moved or had its behavior changed, and all of the graphic changes are simply updates (as opposed to replacements).

The changes were originally kept simple so that it could be used with other level hacks.

The Luigi game from YY-CHR has been thrown in giving the player the choice of using Mario or Luigi (instead of 2 players). This is the only functional change (improvement) to the game.

ROM / ISO Information:

  • Use IPS on Super Mario Bros. (Japan, USA)

Nice graphics, but play IS changed slightly

Reviewed By: JohnH on 08 Jun 2017

I like the graphic polish given to the game by this hack. But I feel I should correct the description given above.

The gameplay IS changed by this hack in at least one important way, and I have verified this between the original game and this hack played in the same emulator. Specifically, Mario’s bounce height off of enemies in the original game is slight, about one block high, while in the hack it’s at least two blocks.

This matters considerably when attempting, say, the “100 lives” trick bouncing off of the Koopa Troopa coming down the staircase in 3-1.
