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?
|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|
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.
|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||–|
|Simon||Short Range Whip Attack||Jump (double Jump)||–||Crouch||Throw Axes|
|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||–|
