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However, we do think Mario Forever consumes a bit too much processor time, especially considering its outdated design.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.

    "Absolute mayhem on your PC"

    July 07, 2014   |   By pc-maniac

    Version: New Super Mario Forever 2012 1.1

    Pros

    NONE WHATSOEVER

    Cons

    This piece of VERY badly written software is an absolutely horrid mess. Stay away from this. It will not only attempt to install/change your search engine settings (that is a trojan) it will also install other processes and back door to your system.

    Summary

    Stay away from this garbage. I tested it on a virtual machine and it was a mess.
    Go to ebay and buy a wii, works a lot better. If not purchase a legitimate emulator.

    "Don't want third party software"

    June 13, 2013   |   By zahi_b21

    Version: New Super Mario Forever 2012 1.1

    Pros

    Decided not to install after seeing the 'third part software' ...

    Cons

    Stopped installing after reading this legal note:
    'The developer of the software ("Software") you are installing has chosen to use the OpenCandy Network ("We") to provide recommendations of other third party software.'
    It's opening a door to a lot of junk on my computer.
