If you’re old enough to remember the Nintendo 64, then you are certainly familiar with Super Mario 64. Well, now you can live those glory days by playing an enhanced HD version of the game right inside your browser.
It definitely looks much nicer than the original console game, even if you had the 4 MB Expansion Pack, which was sold separately at the time.
A computer science student Erik Roystan Ross created a remake of the first level of the game while experimenting with the Unity game engine. While playing the first level is a blast, that’s as far as it goes. According to The Verge , Erik says “I currently do not have any plans to develop this any further or to resolve any bugs, unless they’re horrendously game-breaking and horrendously simple to fix.”
Play Super Mario 64 HD in Your Browser
To play, go to the Mario remake game in your browser (link below) and you’ll need to install the Unity web player first. For example, in the screenshot below I am installing it in Internet Explorer.
Installing it in Chrome is a bit different, but you get the idea. Chrome and IE are the only browsers that I have tested it with.
After that, enjoy the game!
You can use either your keyboard or a gamepad to control the game.
