Friday Fun – Play Super Mario NES Crossover In Your Browser [groovyFriday]

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?

Character Original Game
Mario It’s his game to begin with!
Link The Zelda Series
Bill Rizer The Contra Series
Simon Belmont The Castlevania Series
Mega Man The Mega Man Series
Samus Aran The 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.


X Key

Z Key

Up Key

Down Key

Mario Hold to Run (or Fireball) Jump
Link Sword Attackz Jump Slice Up Slice Down Boomerang
Bill Rizer Long Range Gun Attack Jump Aim Up Prone

Mega Man Shoot (Hold to Power-up) Jump Hold+Z to Slide
Samus Shoot (or bomb while in ball form) Jump (or slide while holding down) Aim Up Enter Ball Form
