New Super Mario Forever 2012

CNET Editors' review

Hearkening back to the heyday of Nintendo, this game faithfully reproduces the classic Super Mario Bros. Although Mario Forever's graphics and sound aren't identical to those of the original, they're so close most users familiar with the game won't be able to differentiate.

The basic platformer action hasn't changed either. As the feisty little plumber Mario, you traverse different worlds to collect coins while dodging enemies such as malevolent mushrooms and ill-tempered turtles. You won't find an extensive feature set, but you can at least change the keyboard controls or disable the music and sound effects.

However, we do think Mario Forever consumes a bit too much processor time, especially considering its outdated design. But if you were a fan of the 1980s classic Super Mario Bros., then we doubt this freebie will disappoint you.

    "Amazing except for the controls, which ruin it."

    January 8, 2013  |   By kevinmario

    Version: New Super Mario Forever 2012 1.0

    Pros

    The graphics are wonderful (although I don't like Mario's awkward stance). The level designs are elaborate and expertly designed. Almost everything is phenomenal.

    Cons

    The game is ruined by the controls. The following changes need to be made:

    1: Mario should start running instantly when you hold down the fire button, as he does in almost every Mario game.
    2: Mario should only slide on the the wall when you're holding down the button in the direction of that wall. So if you're sliding down the wall to Mario's right, as soon as you let go of the right button, Mario should drop the same as he would if the wall were not there. In this game, Mario automatically slides down walls when you're too close to them, and you have to jump to get off of them, leading to the constant irritation of accidentally getting stuck on walls.

    Summary

    This would be the most amazing fan game I've ever played with a few basic changes.

    "Didn't work"

    January 3, 2013  |   By DanHakimi

    Version: New Super Mario Forever 2012 1.0

    Pros

    I couldn't say.

    Cons

    It did not open.
    I'm dubious of what would happen even if it did.

    Summary

    It never opened...

    ... but even if it did, this doesn't exactly seem... legitimate. If I hadn't downloaded it from cnet, I would be certain it was malware.
