The Mario You’ve Never Heard Of...With ROM Download!
A piece of gaming history whose existence has until now escaped even
the most supposedly definitive of books and web archives - a lost
Super Mario Brothers game has been discovered!
Newly discovered a piece of gaming history whose existence has until
now escaped even the most supposedly definitive of books and web
archives - a lost Super Mario Brothers game. Called "Super Mario
Brothers Special", the game ran on the obscure Japanese PC-8001
computer, and was created in 1986 by veteran developers Hudson Soft.
Looking and sounding very much like the arcade/NES original, SMB
Special has two major differences to its parent.
Firstly, it contains a complete new set of levels, different from both
the first game and the Japan-only "Super Mario Bros 2" which later
appeared on the SNES Mario Allstars compilation. And secondly, rather
than having a scrolling display in the manner of the other Mario
games, SMBS features a flick-screen format which changes the gameplay
significantly. (For example, a kicked Koopa shell will now rebound off
the edge of the screen and come back at you whether there's an
obstacle there or not.)
Despite these changes, and the primitive hardware the game was running
on, SMB Special is an entertaining game, significantly harder than the
original and a challenge even in comparison to the Japanese SMB2. But
hey, don't take my word for it.
N.E.C. PC-8801 Computer Emulator and smb special Rom.zip From South
Central Emulation contains everything you need to play SMB Special -
the N.E.C. PC88Win emulator, the system ROMs, and the disk image
itself. Simply unzip the file contents to a folder, load up the disk
in drive 1, select "N Mode" from the "Options" menu and then reset the
emulator. The game should auto-run from there. (Controls are numeric
pad to move, Z and X the fire buttons. You can use normal cursor keys
by switching Num Lock off.) Enjoy, before Nintendo's lawyers have us
