It's all great... except for Mario...

Reviewed By: seba00 on 27 May 2020

Changing the Mario sprites was a bad call in my opinion, for a few reasons mainly: 1.- the mario sprite is inconsistent with the rest of the sprites in the game, while everything is a reduced/simplified version of sprites in super mario bros, Mario looks like from another game entirely. 2.- there is absolutely nothing wrong with the original mario sprites, why change them? 3.- the size of the sprite is almost double the original size, I suppose everyone is remembering what size mario was originally to ṕlay tha game, so as to know if the character avoids an obstacle, or can squeeze in certain areas or not

This would be an excelent, almost perfect hack if it wheren’t for that one questionable design choice… may I suggest 2 alternatives: give colors to the original sprites and use those, or create a new set of sprites that respect the originals in size
