Super Mario Star Scramble
For those who have been Super Mario Brother aficionados, here is a game that will keep you enthralled for quite a while. This is a game about timing; you are supposed to get all the gold coins in each level within 90 seconds or else the game comes to an end. In this game, you move Mario by using the left and right arrow keys. In order to make him jump, you use the spacebar or the Z key. The game is really simple and all you have to do is avoid the traps and the monsters. You go for the gold coins and also the sun talismans. There are gold coins in all the boxes which have a question mark. In order to get the coins out, you have to go under the box and then make Mario jump; upon hitting the box, the coins will be launched out and will be added to your collection. The level begins when you send Mario through one of the open doors using the up arrow key; when you finish a level, you can return to it once again by going through the same door. However, you can go to another open level by selecting a different door. This is what makes the game very exciting since you can still collect more coins from the easy levels and just breeze through the tough ones. You should jump on top of the monsters in order to kill them. You should also jump on any other item in order to interact with it; such as the key that opens all bridges. You should be careful about the bridges since they can make you fall to your death. When he dies, Mario still leaps out of the game in the traditional manner. The game has low res graphics making it easy to play with an old computer.
