Description (by Eric Savage)

A top-ranking bestseller. Mario became the definition of the platformer in the grey old days of the twentieth century. This remake is reasonably good - the author has managed to fit a surprisingly large amount of graphics into a tiny file, although he added a bit of his own interpretation to the game. The VGA graphics are very smooth, although the game tends to run a bit slow on slower PC's.

The game includes six levels. The author wrote this game to practice VGA programming. The goal was to create a PC game with parallax scrolling layers that would run smoothly on his 486 computer (25 MHz). He didn't plan to release this Mario game, instead use the engine to make more original games.
