One Credit Contest #15: Mario Bros. (NES) - FINISHED

#1

Post by е и ժ е я » Fri May 08, 2015 2:04 am

The title of first place for the previous contest went to myself, and I passed the choice for next title onto [USER=19313]@Ringabel[/USER]! She has chosen the original arcade classic Mario Bros. for our next challenge! This is where it all started. No Koopa, no mushroom kingdom, just two plumbers and a terrible blockage.

Recommended Emulators: fceUX, Nestopia

Image

The rules:

-Only Mode A is necessary! Mode B is more difficult, so you may play it instead, but you'll only be punishing yourself!
-NTSC only, no PAL (Sorry guys! They have differently clocked CPUs and the games run at different timings!)
-No cheats, cheat devices, or passwords
-No save states, slowdowns or other emulator tools
-No continuing
-Real hardware or emulation are both acceptable

Simply post your progress in the following form, and containing all of the following elements in the following order:
Name - Stage - Score
Only include stages that you complete, ending with the stage you lost on.

A screen shot or video is optional, but encouraged! We're all adults here, so I expect everyone to be honest about the numbers that appear on their 30 year old video game when they post about it on a video game message board.

I will maintain a leader board in this post, and about one week from now the winner will be decided. Progress is measured by stages completed, then by score as a tiebreaker. The winner gets to choose our next game. This contest may earn you EXP to gain levels in the One Credit Challenge overall ranking! For more information, refer to the One Credit Contest: Leveling Up! thread. Participating automatically earns you 1 EXP!

You may post new scores as often as you wish. Have fun!

Alright, I would be remiss in my duties as Mario mod if I didn't do this one.

Thanks for submitting so soon, guys! I've played a lot of Mario Bros. over the years, but never in its original arcade format. The Super Mario Bros 3. version and Mario Clash on Virtual Boy are fond memories for me, so I'm looking forward to this one.

A.I. - Phase 12 - 74,550

The lack of physics in this game feels so weird.

YOU CAN DO IT LOOT I believe in you.



For what it's worth, I think I'm actually about as good with keyboard controls as I am with a controller for this one.

this is one game I highly prefer keyboard since I can actually curve my fingers to pretend like I'm at the arcade like the lone nerd I am

^ I actually bet I'd do a lot better with a proper joystick, considering.

Phase 14 - 108,620

Man, this is tough. The sliding and jump physics makes it harder than the version that's on the GBA remakes.
