Someone Made an Atari 2600 Version of Super Mario Bros That Doesn’t Look That Bad
Super Mario Bros is one of the most iconic video games of all time. It’s the game that turned Mario into a house-hold name, the music is legendary and video games today still use Super Mario Bros. as their main source of inspiration. It was the game that was included in the Nintendo Entertainment System (NES) in the mid-80s so it just missed the opportunity to be on the Atari 2600.
Leave it to Chris Spry to create his own version of Super Mario Bros on the Atari 2600 and, from the looks of it, it looks pretty decent.
The game, which he called ‘Princess Rescue’ for copyright reasons has all of the things that made Super Mario Bros. a hit game. You can collect coins, you can grow larger which make it so you can break blocks, familiar enemies and he even included an Atari 2600 arrangement of the infamous music.
This isn’t the first Atari ‘demake’ Chris has done. He also made an Atari 2600 version of Mega Man.
