Hack of Super Mario Bros. 3

Description:

Here is a hack which combines:

  • Mario Bros.,
  • Super Mario Bros.,
  • Super Mario Bros. 2 JPN (The Lost Levels),
  • Super Mario Bros. 2 USA, and
  • Super Mario Bros. 3.

Also added into this hack is the ability to use SRAM to save your games and to save your top score in Mario Bros.

This game is using Mapper 005 (MMC5) and it uses 1MB/1024kb’s of PRG-ROM, & 1MB/1024kb’s of CHR-ROM. Except for Super Mario Bros, all the other Mario games are converted to MMC5 as well.

Note: An MMC5-capable emulator is required, otherwise the graphics will be a garbled mess.

To access Mario Bros, on the game select screen, hold A and press Up on Super Mario Bros.

Updated to v10-15-17. Minor update to my mock FDS bios introduction screen.

Great compilation

Reviewed By: Animation Guru on 07 Mar 2017

Great overall compilation. All the NES Mario goodness you could ever want without having to change the game. If only this could have been an actual pack-in with the console back in the day.

Admittedly, it’s more of a novelty “what if” rom, presented as it might have been had Nintendo did some a cart for NES. The opening presentation is nice and looks authentic. Feels genuine and not like a rom hack at all.

The save feature is the most useful upgrade here. Now we can take our time with Super Mario Bros. 3.

The only criticism would be fixing the Engrish in Super Mario Bros. 2, particularly during the cast roll, in which “Clawglip” is still misspelled, and Birdo and Ostro are still reversed.

Other than that, it’s pretty awesome!

Addendum: Changed my initial review after I discovered that a bug turned out to be an issue with my emulator. The problem was that my copy of FCEUX ver. 2.2.2 wouldn’t allow me to advance beyond World 7-1 of Super Mario Bros 2. Upgrading the emulator made this problem go away. Definitely make sure you have the latest emulator if that’s how you’re playing this.
