Super Mario Bros 3: Mario Forever is the Windows PC version of the beloved Nintendo game.
If you're old enough to remember the original Mario Brothers games from the late 1980s and early 1990s, you've probably got fond memories. Mario Brothers really revolutionized at-home gaming entertainment. The Mario Brothers franchise on its own was hugely popular and successful.
Now you can relive the fun again with Super Mario Bros 3: Mario Forever for Windows PCs. Similar to MegaMario, this version actually seems to be a mixture of NES's Mario Brothers 3 and Super Nintendo's Super Mario Brothers, as opposed to an entirely new storyline.
Super Mario Bros 3: Mario Forever offers you the option of window mode and full screen mode while playing. Full screen mode is a nice feature, but be aware that the larger your game screen is, the less clear it is. You navigate Mario around Super Mario Bros 3: Mario Forever using the arrow keys on your computer's keyboard. Tapping the space bar gets Mario to jump.
At the beginning of Super Mario Bros 3: Mario Forever gameplay, there's a little story that's reminiscent of what you'd find on the original games themselves. It doesn't last long, but it sets the stage for the in-character fun. The graphics aren't the best, but they're true to the original games. Mainly, they're just as cheesy and nostalgia-inducing as the originals.
The only complaint users might have with Super Mario Bros 3: Mario Forever is that it's a bit awkward to maneuver Mario around with your PC's keyboard. This might be especially frustrating for users who were absolute pros at the original games.
Once you get the hang of the keyboard "joystick" though, Super Mario Bros 3: Mario Forever will keep you occupied for quite some time.
