Groovy Computer Related Updates, News, Tips, How-to, and Fun

If you’ve played the original NES Mario game, then you’re probably going to love this new flash game that came out on Wednesday.  That’s right; it’s the original Mario NES in your browser but with a twist.  They’ve brought in a roundhouse cast of other famous Nintendo characters.

Super Mario Crossover by explodingRabbit is a fun browser based flash game that allows you to play through the old (and great) 1985 Super Mario Bros NES.  However they’ve thrown in a changeup, and now you can play through the game using the looks and abilities of five other Nintendo favorites:  Link, Bill R, Simon, Mega Man, and Samus Aran.


Where are these guys from?

LinkThe Zelda Series
Bill RizerThe Contra Series
Simon BelmontThe Castlevania Series
Mega ManThe Mega Man Series
Samus AranThe Metroid Series

Super Mario Crossover character selection and Control list

Picking a character is easy, and the game has instructions along the way, but there isn’t any manual for it, so I’ve done my best here to list all of the controls for every character in the game.  Note that all attacks will take out blocks just as if you were hitting them with your head as Mario.



Use the Left and Right arrow keys to move.  Mario is the only character that can run, but he doesn’t have any extra special abilities.
