Pimping your Plumber with Super Mario Unlimited

Fifteen years after the emulation explosion of the late 1990s, hacks of console games have saturated the internet... and gamers have come to make certain expectations of them. They've usually got a peculiar, even juvenile sense of humor, with the player battling everything from evil clones of Wilford Brimley to disgruntled Food Lion butchers. They've often viciously hard... one hack of Super Mario World lets the player finish a stage, only to snatch that victory away by forcing Mario to march off a cliff if he hasn't hit a block switch first. However, one thing that isn't often said about hacks is that they improve the source material. In most cases, they don't add much to the experience, and often take some of the appeal away with kludgy new graphics and levels designed to torment rather than entertain.

There are exceptions, though, and Super Mario Unlimited is exceptional indeed. A hack of the original Super Mario Bros. for the NES, Super Mario Unlimited shaves five years off its age with graphics that are a pleasant pastiche of series highlights Super Mario Bros. 3 and Super Mario World. There's also a fresh assortment of stages that hit the right balance between cakewalk and ten mile hike uphill. If they're not hard enough for you, a special Mario coin in each stage will give you the controller-breaking challenge you crave, forcing you to vault over chasms and scour levels on a tight deadline for each elusive prize. The only downside to this hack is the music, split between tunes you've already heard to death in the original game and plodding, off-key compositions in Bowser's dungeons.

Sour notes aside, Super Mario Unlimited is an experience you really shouldn't miss. You can pick up the hack from this link at Retro Collect, then apply it to a copy of Super Mario Bros. using one of the IPS patchers available on the internet. Just be sure you own a legitimate copy of the game before you proceed... Mario may seem cute and cuddly in his latest games, but he'll drop the family-friendly facade and go all Sopranos on you in a heartbeat if he knows you're pirating his stuff!
