Mario Brothers and Nintendo

Back when the Nintendo Entertainment System (NES) was created, it came with another game, made by the Nintendo Company. It was a whole new series of games that would get the NES selling. The idea was to think of a continuing game series. That game is Super Mario Brothers. It's one of the games that many other game companies got their game ideas from; which makes this game even more special. It was the original platform for Nintendo, and many other platform’s were made after this game. It's an old classic, but still fun and playable.

The story of the game itself is rather simple, and not too dramatic. The Princess is stolen by Mario's enemy, Bowser, and it is up to Mario to save her. It involves going throughout eight different worlds and fighting Bowser. Mario also has many other friends helping him out. The story may sound simple, usual, or boring. I give them credit for coming up with this idea in the first place; which is why they well deserve a 9/10 for the story of the game.

Compared to Atari and many other systems, Nintendo had great graphics, but Super Mario Brothers didn't show the graphics to the full extent. The game really only uses a good five to seven colors throughout the entire game, but it is not too noticeable. The colors display correctly, but there are not enough colors to make objects display 3D. When you go through the game, the clouds, and background look like paper, and not because of the lack of parallax scroll. The characters have full, 3D-like movement, which I give Nintendo credit for since it is an older game. There are darker levels with a simple back background with some blue blocks; this seems rather simple, but it is better then the usual Nintendo games.
