Here's our quick peek for the Steam release of Kill the Plumber. A 2-D puzzle platformer where you play the villains of the Mushroom Ki~er the Not-Mushroom Kingdom and get their revenge on a certain fireball spitting and pipe jumping plumber. The game is currently $3.99 on Steam (165.95php) and is 20% off for it's first week of release. Get it while it's hot! http://store.steampowered.com/app/420070/
Yes, this is true. I have never beaten the oringinal Super Mario Bros. on the NES/Famicom. To be fair, I haven't really tried to beat the game yet. I usually just play until the first warp pipe then when the nostalgia wears off, I shut off the game.
When I was growing up, the original Famicom that we had broke before I really got a chance to play on it. So my folks got me one of the NES clones called "Super Family Computer" which is just a NES in a SNES body. The controllers had four face buttons on it which X and Y were turbo buttons of A and B. When they got me that, the old games we used to have were either sold or already given away so my mom bought me one game and it was Mega Man 6. Rockman 6 to be exact. One of my neighbors (he was around 5 years older than me) found out that I got a new NES and gave me a sack, a literal sack, filled with his old NES cartridges. Among them were Rockman's 1-4, I got 5 from another neighbor. A ton of other games were also in there such as Super Mario Bros. 1-3, Mike Tyson's Punch-Out!, Spy vs Spy, Battle City, so on and so forth.
I was in the situation where I had quite the number of games to choose from and wasn't forced to just grind away at this one game that I owned. If I lost interest in a game, I would just simply pop in another one. I really enjoyed Super Mario Bros. back in the day but I had been exposed to a lot of more refined games before I really got to play it. Aside from the shortcut pipe and hidden 1-Up in world 1-1 and the warp pipes in world 1-2, I don't really know anymore secrets in the original Super Mario Bros. One day I'll sit down and try to beat the game legit, no warp pipes. But for now, here's a vid of me playing SMB while I messed around with a NES emulator.
In my defense I did beat Super Mario Land on the original GameBoy.
Yes, you read right. The Super Mario Bros. x Portal 2 indie game will have 2 player co-op and online multiplayer.
If you have played the Portal 2 co-op then you know how crazy that could get. That craziness is seen in the first few seconds of this video. Again, my brain is not powerful enough to even imagine the level design that is going in to this game. I mean just look at them, I could barely even keep up with who owns what pair of portals and the video isn’t even 2 minutes long.
Bottom line is I want this game but they can take their sweet time as long as the game is perfect once they are finally done.
Apparently the chubby, mushroom addicted, plumber will be getting Valve's famous Portal Gun. This isn't just a mod of Super Mario Bros. but is an actual game that is developed. I remember seeing a flash movie of Mario with a Portal Gun by Dorkly and I'm surprised (and glad) that someone is turning that concept into a real game.
Here is some of the info from the developer's blog at stabyourself.net
Since Mari0 is suddenly popular, I guess posting some information will be useful.
- Yes, this is an actual game being developed - it is not a mod of any existing one. It’s coded with Löve (info at the bottom of the left menu) and will be released for free (so we don’t get stabbed by lawyers)
- All the source code of the game will be available after release
- The game will have mappacks, which will be downloadable from ingame. Users most likely won’t be able to publish maps directly, but will be able to send them in and we’ll add them for everyone to use.
- The primary maps will have a story and some portaly puzzles. What kind, well, we’ll figure that out as we go
- Level editor will be embedded in the game so you can edit the level while you play
- Original SMB levels and Lost levels will be included
- Simultaneous Multiplayer
Speaking of which, here’s a pic
Have you ever wondered what exactly happens when Mario falls in a pit? Artist Ryan Coleman has given us an answer with this picture that looks like a level from Super Meat Boy. I wonder how many game overs it took to get this many Marios down there.
