Super Mario War

Posted by Anthony Dickens

Mutiplayer fan-made Mario game surfaces on Interweb site, 72dpiarmy.com

The game which seems to be available for PC and Linux has also been published with its entire source code available for download. The creators claim that the game is in tribute to the great giant N in the sky, Nintendo.

"Super Mario War is a Super Mario multiplayer game. The goal is to stomp as many other Marios as possible to win the game. It's a tribute to Nintendo and the game Mario War by Samuele Poletto.

The game uses artwork and sounds from Nintendo games. We hope that this non-commercial fangame qualifies as fair use work. We just wanted to create this game to show how much we adore Nintendo's characters and games."

The game boasts upto 4 player action, CPU players and comes complete with a level editor, according to the website over 400 maps have already been created for the game.

We're not sure how Nintendo feels about such games, but it's still pretty impressive. Maybe Nintendo should let these guys develop Super Mario War as "New Content" for Wii's Virtual Console system... Viva la Fanboys!

I love this game... absolutely amazing.
Love the simplicity, the humour, the cool Booooiiiiing! sound.

KingKRool, my 5 year old brother has no problem playing this game, how did you find it difficult?

anyway, this game is one of the most addictive free open-source games a the moment. kudos to the creators.

As for the "Online Play" question, why do you need online play? Online play would mean at least 1 dedicated full time server must be available. if you can pay for that, im sure they won't mind including it in their next release.

This game is free, remember. the developers are keeping it that way. so, they make no loss... if they were to maintain a server, they would loose money. and when it comes to loss of money, companies go boom.

Overall 10/10 for everything.

Well Done 72dpiarmy.
