SUPER MARIO BROS Special X1 for NES

Hack of Super Mario Bros.

Description:

SUPER MARIO BROS Special X1 for NES is a altered version of the Super Mario Bros. Special for NES hack which was created by Frantik and Karatorian. It is altered to more closely resemble the X1 version of Super Mario Bros. Special. The changes found in the hack include:

  • Title screen more closely resembles the X1 game.
  • World selection by pressing B.
  • Altered graphics such as dithering and a altered pallette.
  • The pipe entering cutscene at the beginning of some levels such as World 1-2 and 2-2 is done manually.
  • Ending message. A farewell message to Hudson Soft which closed down in 2012.

Note that this is based on the 1.0~rc1 hack of Super Mario Bros. Special for NES and will not contain any features of future versions should future versions be released.

The readme is in S-JIS format.

User Review Information

The changes are great

Reviewed By: MathUser2929 on 28 Nov 2012

The changes made by this hack to the original SMB Special for NES hack are great. The new graphics and palette make it feel like a new game. The level select option is great so you don’t have to restart the game when you lose all your lives. It’s also fun to be able to do the pipe entering cutscene on your own. I know this hack may be obsolete if these features are incorporated into future versions of the original SMB Special for NES hack but this is a good update for now.

Highly reccomended as it helps make for a closer experience to the original X1 game.
