Mario Run Preview - A non stop C64 runner twist on a classic
Before you get too excited this isn't the original NES platformer of Super Mario converted to the C64, but a runner game by Christian and George Rottensteiner released as a game preview with a trainer by Laxity. Unlike the original 1985 hit classic, 'Mario Run' for the C64 involves non stop running to get to the end flag while collecting coins and avoiding being trapped behind objects or falling between the ledges.
For what is a very early preview version without any sound effects or being able to jump on enemies, Mario Run is an enjoyable experience that should be played at least once by C64 owners. What I really did like though, was listening to the Super Mario tune being played as a SID. So if you closed your eyes you would think you were back on the NES!
