Perfection.

Reviewed By: keithisgood on 24 Mar 2012

Extra Mario is among the top 1% of rom hacks. The graphical overhaul is spot-on, introducing SMB3 and Metroid sprites into SMB1. The music is engaging and moody.

The gameplay is what sets Extra Mario apart. Instead of simply moving left to right, finishing a level and moving on to the next, Mario must navigate through 5 distinct areas of the world via warp pipes. The game only allows left to right movement, but that restriction adds to the gameplay, ramping up the difficulty a few clicks.

The available power ups scattered through the 5 areas create a rich game experience, opeinging new worlds and aiding Mario in his quest to retrieve 8 keys and defeat Bowser.

And the final boss fight… yowza.

There’s even a game+ option if you still want to explore the world after defeating Bowser.

Extra Mario is, if not the best, among the top rom hacks. I can’t recommend this game highly enough. Two thumbs up, five stars out of five. Extra Mario is one of the better games for the NES period.
