My console came with Sonic the Hedgehog though, and I know virtual nothing about this game.
|Super Mario Bros. (NES)|
Musically though, Mario 1 destroys Alex Kidd's level one theme. It's tolerable enough so far, but I can imagine this short loop getting unbearable pretty fast.
I wonder what's in that question mark block though.
I tried jumping back up, but it seems that this is a one way cave. It only scrolls down.
Hey, another question mark box! I'm checking that out.
A quick game over screen, and a replay of the first section and I'm back.
I don't like these guys much. The rest of the enemies so far have just patrolled back and forth horizontally, but this creature chases me around until I can get him off screen. Or he manages to kill me.
It won't let me jump up to grab the cash, and it won't let me swim off screen. What am I supposed to do?
Oh I see, I just have to swim closer to the ground, and then it lets me swim to the right. Mario never had to deal with this crap.
Though I should be able to avoid them next time by staying below the frog until I'm close enough to beat it to death with my fists.
I guess I've learned my lesson about breaking mystery blocks.
Fine, I'll take everything, I've got the cash. For all I know I'll need it.
AFTER REPLAYING TWO LEVELS.
I can't believe I just lost a platformer because of rock, paper, scissors. That's just amazing. Well, uh, onto the next game then I suppose.
