Play Super Mario Bros. In Your Browser With Full Screen Mario

Even if you aren’t an avid video game player, you have probably at least heard of Super Mario Bros. Released in 1985 by Nintendo, it remains one of the best known games of that era and has spawned many products and sequels. If you remain nostalgic for the game or a just curious about it because of its lasting impact, you’ll be happy to know that you can now play it in your browser thanks to a new version of it created in HTML5 by Joshua Goldberg.

Called Full Screen Mario, this version of the game looks and sounds just like the original. You navigate using the arrow or W/A/S/D keys, which makes it intuitive to use. These controls respond just like those from the original game so there is a very short learning curve for those who have played the original. You can navigate between levels by selecting any of the 32 available levels or you can use the map generator button to select a random level. If you have always wanted to make your own mark on the Super Mario world, you can also design your own levels using the tools provided in the level editor. No coding knowledge is necessary to create new levels since the entire process is done through drag and drop elements. Any levels you create can be saved to your own computer as text files so that you can play them again later. And, the entire project is open source and available on GitHub, so you can even use Goldberg’s code as the basis of an even more complex reimagination if you would like. Whether you were a fan of the original Super Mario Bros. or not, Full Screen Mario is an impressive project and a great way to re-experience the game in a whole new way.
