Mario Bros Overhauled - This is the BEST Amstrad CPC version by far!

In 1983 Nintendo released the classic game ' Mario Bros ' for the Arcades, with a number of ports released by other publishers in 1988 for systems such as the Atari 8bit. This very famous game created by Shigeru Miyamoto and Gunpei Yokoi, featured two plumbers Mario and Luigi, that needed to wipe out all the enemies appearing in the sewers of New York. Now thanks to Jean-Marie and team as a fan of Mario Bros, they have released this classic game for the Amstrad CPC: A new version of the game  that is far better than the original Amstrad port!



Here is what was said via the cpc wiki forums which makes this game well worth a play! "Hello. It's a-me, Jean-Mario! I and my bros, Onevision & Lunoka, are pleased to offer you this new game for your CPC. It's an overhauled version of the Ocean game Mario Bros from 1987, which was another sad-looking Speccy port. It now sports new graphics, musics, and an improved code. Have fun"

  1. Very cool, reminds me of R-Type 128K where they re-did the spectrum ported version ..

    1. Mario is a funny hack. R-Type was a greatest acheivement.

  2. Wow! What a difference!

  3. Speccy version. Similar increase of the colorfulness.

  4. finally a version that screams cpc

  5. Very good. Interesting use of sprites. This is why ports to different systems are so compelling.
