For an upcoming round, I propose we play:
Mario NES Builder!!
A faithful recreation of SMB1 for NES, but with a built in level editor and a fairly active online community of people who are creating new levels :)
One of my favorite platform games of all time. It was the summer of 1988. We had just moved back to the US from Japan, and my next door neighbor at the time had this little box called a "Nintendo"... From the first time I played SMB, I was hooked.
Later on, I got into playing super difficult hacked ROMS of the game, both solo and also with my fiancee. But those only lasted a while and there are only a limited number of new hacks coming out at this point.
So when Mario NES Builder hit the scene, I was pretty excited. I've messed around with it a little bit, and it seems to be a fairly faithful recreation. The physics seem possibly a little bit off, maybe, perhaps it's just my mind tricking me. I don't know.
What do you think, would you be game for some moderately difficult level sets of this for an upcoming round?
This in contrast to the vastly different and very bizarre "Mari0", which combines SMB1 and Portal ... I couldn't wrap my head around that ;) (Plus in general I don't like games that use the mouse)
