I'll start - 26560

First time playing the NES Mario Bros. I've played it on the GBA, Stella and EMU7800. I think the physics are different on this version, or its just me.

I thought we were going to do Tetris first. Anyway, I'll look and see if I have a copy of Mario Bros.

The time seems to go by faster on the coin bonus stages on this version and the physics are a bit different.
The bad guys land a little further away on this version than they do on the 7800 version.
I like to have the Sidesteppers (the red crab guys) land on the same floor as Mario.

I hate this game with a passion. It'd be a lot better if those stupid red and green FIREBALLS weren't there! I suck. :( 63,510

Second post:


This is my first entry to the High score stuff. I looked at the rules beforehand.

72760. That's not bad, certainly not 240,960 but it's ok.

Questions answered. I'll try to get a session in by Tues.

This is Shigeru Miyamoto's worst creation of all time, and proof that even HE is human. Barf! I am never going to play this game ever again. It sucks. 75,610. Wake me when we finally get to play Tetris.

Well, I obviously didn't get around to posting a score. Nevertheless, this round is over.
