Ok, here's another one (nice sight by the way!) ;0)


The game I am thinking of now, was called Super Mario Bros' 3 if I recall correctly, which came out waaaayyyy before Nintendo emulation was around. I saw a picture of this one in a magazine as well (I think), and it looked to be a hack of the original Super Mario Bros. but in this one there were a LOT of bean stalks, and a lot of climbing involved, so far as I could tell from the picture. The game was yet another title floating about on the underground market back in the day, infact I think it was on floppy too.

Any clues, was it leaked ect. ?

My flat out guess is that it's one of the dozens (hundreds? thousands?) of Mario hacks floating around out there, and we'll probably never see it.. unless it was just a Game Genie code, or maybe even a photoshop job.

Well like I was saying, this came out quite a while before emulation, and before all the on-line homebrew mario hacks, this had its own cart and everything. As far as being a Photoshop Mock up...

...well no it had to be done on an Amiga back in those days, as PC's were still the underdog. :)

So just one of the many many mario pirate carts that are teeming in such countries that permit them. Ton out there, some better than others, with sprite hacks and such before emulation days, yes. And as for photoshoping it could have been done on the mac which was the perfered platfom of Adobe for years. Uh, and since when were PC's the underdog? Amiga, while more powerful and way ahead of its time, never really caught on (unfortunatly) and died away to its small niche market.

..I should've said pirates, not hacks. It was late, I was tired, and dammit, same thing. :)

Also, I knew saying "photoshop" would get me into trouble, but I have no idea what programs they used back in the day for that sort of work, so, there ya go.

He he he, I damn you! :)

And yes it was a pirate hack of the game, I do know that much about it. Would be nice to track it down though, in one form or another.

I guess Ern also hasn't seen the Lord of the Rings trilogy, otherwise he'd get the Gollum reference.

Honk Kong...

...close enough. :)

Sounds like India needs a mail order shop, of course that would not be legal, but then again, screw customs!!! :)

So how is India doing now a days? I just got done watching Gandhi the other day and am getting ready to order his Biography.
