The lights are on
If, like me, you grew up as a child of the 8- and 16-bit console wars between Nintendo and Sega, you may want to look away or brace yourself. This story may shock you.
A video on YouTube (embedded below) showcases a new version of Super Mario Bros. ported to Genesis via an emulator. The visuals and gameplay look pretty much spot-on with the NES original. The only difference is the music, which has been changed -- Sega fanboys might say improved, but they'd be wrong -- thanks to the Genesis' unique sound hardware. This port even (almost) has the old Minus World trick working!
Elsewhere on YouTube, to help prove that this port is the full game, user Localhbci has started uploading a five-part video series that will result in a full playthrough of Super Mario Bros. on the Genesis emulator -- kind of a heathen Super Replay.
To my fellow NES and SNES lovers, I realize your faith might be shaken by these events. But at least this is a near-perfect port of the game we love and not some insane, awful b***ard version, like this so-called Super Mario World port from a 2006 video:
Or this one from 2007 OH MY GOD WHAT IS HAPPENING:
I'm going to get my NES out of storage and spend the rest of the day holding it and crying.
Wow. Just wow.
who really cares?
Whats so bad? The music?
I don't get it
the person who did this is EVIL!!!!
what is the big deal?
That's actually a pretty neat conversion, especially since I don't associate those kinds of tight controls and good air control with Genesis platformers.
That said, the music is an affront to humanity. It's like you threw a musical toy into a mud puddle.
all i have 2 cry with is a super nintendo is that ok
Is there some kind of copy right law? But I'm with everyone else who cares? Not only that, but why would they do this there's no reason too not just get out your old NES, and play it.. Was it worth all the work to play it on Sega?
The music sounds like farts. Stupid Genesis.
BLASPHEMY! PUT IT BACK PUT IT BACK PUT IT BACK!
Seriously, you got your Sega all over my Nintendo.
...WHAT ARE MY MEMORIES?
Looks like it was played on a pc any ways
Genesis Does What Nintendon't.
Yeah, it even plays the other console's games!
The music sounds terrible, and anyone who thinks it sounds good should be shot.
I have to say good job to the guy who pulled that off, I don't think he should get so much heat for doing it though. To him it was probably an interesting project I don't think he wanted to do it it kick any reminiscers in the face.
Haha - I dig the weird chinese pirate games shown here. I mean, I know they suck, but they're very interesting failures. Props to whomever ported SMB to Genesis and all, but for a programmer in 2010, it seems like something they'd do in their free time on a weekend. I'd much rather check out more games from Youtube's "Pirated Game Oddities" series:D
what is this gosh
