Nice try at a Super Mario game. I found the controls kind of awkward, though I was able to change them to something a bit more useful. The worst thing was that my screen orientation had hot-keys that I didn’t know about, which this game asked me to use. Next thing I knew my screen was upside down.

There were a lot of screen flicker issues, but it seemed to be only in a few places.

Gameplay was just a touch on the fast side (or I’m getting too old). While I remember SMB being just a bit tedious at times because Mario could only go so fast, I found myself wanting Maryo to slow down just a touch.

Great try, needs just a bit of work.
