After finishing my first NES game, Mega Man, I have started playing this mother of all platformers for real. The accelerating controls is something I'll have to get used to - I'd really prefer infinite acceleration. That, and pressing A+Start to continue from the last world. :)
Completed world 1.
Completed world 2. There are 8 in total.
Completed world 3 at work.
Completed world 4 at work. Man, that World 4-4 is puzzly. Fortunately, I already heard the trick mentioned by the Angry Video Game Nerd, so I quickly figured it out.
Completed worlds 5-6. It's getting pretty hard.
Using my PSP to kill time at Aladdin's Møntvask, I quickly got to world 5 in NesterJ-emulated Super Mario Bros. I hate the Hammer Bros. so much.
I have started to play a very classic game on a very classic console. Completed world 1.
Completed world 2. Why didn't someone tell me the princess was in another castle?
Completed world 3. I got my Mario legs.
Completed world 4. Eat it, Bowser!
Oh, world 5-4, you are so annoying.
YES. Completed world 5.
Completed world 6. I am the jump master.
Ah, the pattern for World 7-4 is bottom, middle, top.
...And then top, middle, top.
Completed world 7!
WELCOME TO WARP ZONE! First warp is in world 1-2.
Second warp is in the beginning of world 4-2. Secret blocks.
I reached world 8-3 and was immediately killed by a hammer dude.
Reached world 8-4 and King Koopa, and he threw multiple hammers in my face.
Oh, I love jumping on Lakitu. Wish I could steal his cloud.
completed the game.
YES! Finally, after spending all day practicing world 8, and dying numerous times, I got to world 8-4 with 3 lives, traversed the weird pipe maze, swam through an underwater level with fire, and dodged myriads of hammers from Bowser, and drowned him in lava. Phew, Mario must be happy to never have to go through that again...
I have no feeling in my thumbs right now.
THANK YOU MARIO! YOUR QUEST IS OVER. WE PRESENT YOU A NEW QUEST. PUSH BUTTON B TO SELECT A WORLD
Is that what I get, Princess? Really? 'We present you a new quest?'. You are the worst.
Johanne and Kristiane tried this old school Mario game, and I also demonstrated a few levels.
