Mario Bros.

Game Review

What a classic! An excellent game for its time. Mario Bros is a kind-of strategy game featuring everyone's favourite plumbers; Mario and his brother Luigi (thus the title "Mario Bros").

In this game, you must get rid of the pests that come out of the pipes by punching the platform beneath them. The levels get progressively harder with new creatures that are more difficult to attack, and faster speeds. Points are given when you knock the stunned creatures off the platform, and for collecting coins rewarded to you. Bonus rounds are included from time to time, in which you must collect all of the coins within the time limit.

The graphics in the game are well done for an early NES game. It is quite colourful, besides the plain black background, which is common in early NES games. Sounds and music are simple, but suitable. Mario Bros. is still a fairly fun game to play, even today, and will give you a lot of enjoyment.

Graphics 89% Colourful and well-done apart from the plain black background.
Sound 91% Suitable and effective sounds.
Music 80% The small amount of music used is suitable for the game. Since this is an early NES/Famicom game it is acceptable for it not to have much music.
Playability 92% The game is exciting and will keep you playing.
Lastability 91% You'll want to come back and play this game again.
Difficulty 89% This game gets progressively difficult but is easy to master.
Overall 89% A fun, well-made game.
